I agree with GKOBRIEN94, the Health Valley soups are good if you don't have time to make it yourself, and I never do. :)

I like the Health Valley fat free chicken flavored noodles with Vegetables soup. It has no chicken in it but tastes like it. Plus it has 110 calories, no fat, 5 grams protein, and 3 grams of fiber to keep you full. It is usually found in the healthy/organic section of the grocery store. Hope this helps!

Still struggling with the exercise. I am going to take this challenge and try to incorporate the "office workout" in the SparkPeople videos.

As for sodium - I was absolutely shocked to find that one of my favorite low calorie items (campbells Soup at Hand chicken and mini noodles) has almost 1000mg. Does anyone know of a lower sodium content chicken soup. The soup really helps get me through tough days.

High/Low Sodium Surprise: realized I could track it on Spark.
Strength Exercise Area: check for Fri & Sat, not for Sun & Mon
Work on SparkPage!: Added some new friends but not much beyond that. Work and TC killed me this weekend as I had to go into work unexpectedly and TC has a double ear infection. I am thankful that we went this long before he got a cold because he was HATING life Sunday/Monday. And therefore, so was I. :)

Finding the sodium tracking difficult. I found that some of the generic food listed in nutrition although with the right calories has vastly different sodium levels. I had an english muffin that had 200 mg on my nutrition label, but 450 was listed when I tracked it. But I don't use much processed food and tend to be low in sodium.

I'm making sure I try new strength training. Not always two exercise from Sparks. Sometimes a nexercise video with a sequence for legs, or thighs etc.

Got to get back to my spark page did my first blog, don't know what I think of that.

Thanks for the challenge. I didn't realise that it was possible to add other nutrients to track. I've just worked out how to add sodium (levels were good) and decided to add fibre for good measure (2 off the minimum - I'll need to look at that)

Ive noticed that I have been on the high end of recommended sodium on my tracker when I use prepared foods in my day and very low when I cook from "scratch". It is a good thing to think about.

I am doing great with tracking food but not so good on fitness. I have tried the featured exercises.

This challanage may be exactally what I need to get on track with fitness. Thanks a lot. Mona

Figured out how to add sodium to my tracked nutrients, so I guess that a half a check.

Did crunches and airplane pose, check.

I have been working on my sparkpage, but not this weekend.

Turkey burgers are still ok ... use something like Mrs Dash's no salt seasonings to give it flavor and then use a whole wheat bun. The turkey would be under 100 mg of sodium and the bun around 200mg. You still need salt in your diet.

And thanks for your comment. I believe that in helping others achieve their goals can only help me achieve my own. Gotta work together!

Nutrition Habit: Knowing your correct sodium intake
www.sparkpeople.com/resource/nutriti
on
_articles.asp?id=166


Your body make up includes sodium, and it is needed. The problem these days is the amount of salt that people include in the food. The average range that your sodium should be (unless otherwise recommended by a doctor) between 1,000 - 3,000 mg per day.
Rule of Thumb: Keep you sodium intake close to the number of calories take in.

Challenge: Identify a high sodium and low sodium food each day that surprised you.


Fitness Habit: Strength training at your leisure
Check out the strength exercises and choose a new one to try each day. More than one if you like. But break it up Upper one day, core the next, legs after that. Just don't do the same area two days in a row.
www.sparkpeople.com/resource/exercis
e_
demos.asp?exercise_type=core


Challenge: Do 2 new exercise each day and add them to your tracker!

SparkPeople Habit: Set up your SparkPage and personalize it so we can get to know you! Add some pictures, goals, and hobbies. And if you have questions, please make sure to add them to our forum so your questions can help others as well.
