Lesson Learned

Friday, November 25, 2011

Had a nice two day Thanksgiving... so far after eating Holiday day food 4 times..lol I was able to stay under 2100 calories..both days that is more than the 1660 I am suppose to stay under but all is okay. The only thing that really got me was how much sodium... oh momma was that bad... my blood pressure shoot up big time and normally I don't have issues with that but I normally stay under 2300 and yesterday it was more like 6100 yea not good.. so I am working off those effects today lol and last night.... anyways so far I have fared pretty good and it was nice.. but I'm really not looking forward to this kind of meal again for Christmas... I've got to find another tradition lol
On a good note the things I cooked was all the healthy versions.. but the problem was the cornbread dressing ... It was soo good but I didn't make it so I don't know what all was in it...

Weight in is monday and today and the next two days I'm going to try and workout like a crazy women lol

I hope everyone's Thanksgiving was good and that everyone enjoys there weekend!!

    I love to read about thanksgiving on spark because we don't celebrate it in the UK. Well done with keeping your calories in check, and the sodium will disapar with plenty of water and exercise. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

    You can do it. Consider a non ham meal. I always fix lasagne for Christmas. We get ham and Turkey at mil on xmas eve. It is only one day, you will get back to normal afterwards.

    Sounds like you and water should be best friends for a while to flush out that sodium!

    I think we got blasted with a little too much sodium from the dinners that we had with family. We generally eat light at other people's houses and then we make our own dinner the next day. It's much easier for us to stay in range that way since we know exactly what we are eating.

    I'm still trying to figure out what to do for Christmas... the sodium in ham is ridiculous!!! I'm just not sure it will feel like Christmas dinner without ham though.
