This morning I woke up and was another pound down. I was going to log it but thought, hey, why not wait until Saturday when I do my weigh-in for the 5% Challenge? I might have lost even more by then, given that I have been working out like a fiend and eating perfectly. Then I ate Subway for lunch for a change, which included a bag of Sun Chips. I had the calories to spend and I always pick one of the low fat options when I go there. Quick and tasty, right? If I haven't mentioned it, and you aren't participating in the 5% Challenge, this week's spotlight is on sodium intake. After lunch, I logged my food and my Sodium SHOT UP to 3500 mg!!!! The max is set at 2300. My weight---also up 4 pounds within a few hours! I know my weight usually fluctuates but that is a higher fluctuation than normal. I really need to watch the salt (Duh)! I'm drinking lots of water and will be careful of that in the future. To be honest, I think this is a chronic issue for me. My lower legs and ankles get so swollen.
I love Subway. It's a "go to" meal if I don't have time to cook. I had no clue it was so high in Sodium. The chips were only ~350mg.
