Quality and quanity...

Tuesday, March 05, 2013

Thanks for all of the get well wishes. I was able to do more today. My dogs were especially happy for me to walk them. Going outside made such a difference in my mood and mindset. It was about 60 degrees and cloudy :)

I did well with eating and getting some movement in. I also drank my 80 oz of water. I believe the water intake is minimizing the cold symptoms.

Since I started SP in mid January I think I have done a good job of being more aware of hunger and fullness cues. Now I think it's time to focus more on the quality of food I use to fill that hunger. Fat and Carbs are the ranges I am out of most. Also on keeping my sodium intake low. I am also going to focus on getting my heart rate up for longer periods.

Happy Sparking!

    It should warm up a bit this week so that's exciting! Once the rain moves out, hopefully that'll up the opportunities to get outside and get moving.

    Sodium is one of the hardest things for me. I think I crave salty more than I do sweet. I try not to add salt to anything I cook and I rinse canned veggies (I think that reduces the sodium in them by about 40%). I try to do frozen veggies tossed with some lemon juice or garlic to spice them up. And I try to drink way more than 8 glasses a day of water to help flush out any extra. I don't hit it every day, but I'm doing better than I used to!
