Yesterday was the halfway point for my January Bootcamp and I was planning to weigh in and do my measurements today. When I stepped on the scale I discovered that my weight had gone up 2 pounds in less than 24 hours. Yep, I think the salt got me again!
I went out for a nice meal with my husband last night and I was quite proud of myself for managing to eat just enough of everything to satisfy my appetite and enjoy the taste. I did really well, but I forgot about my enemy. Sodium. One of my Spark friends recently pointed how much of it is in just about everything and I've been keeping an eye on my sodium intake ever since.
Today I've been trying to drink extra water and I'm hoping that the water retention will sort itself out in the next day or two. In the meantime I've decided to postpone my weigh in for a couple of days when I'm feeling less salty!
This week I'll make an effort to stay away from processed foods. Wish me luck!
