Let's Talk About My 14,000 Sodium Weekend.
You guys already know how I ate Saturday (over 5,000 sodium), but yesterday was a whole different ball game. I started things off with my traditional bowl of cereal, but later added a scrambled egg with cheese, and two pieces of turkey sausage. For lunch I had some chicken tenders with rice crisps with cheese sauce. And for dinner I had some salsa dip made with melted velvetta. So that's it. On paper it doesn't sound too bad right? Well. It was the dip. I had a ton of it my calorie total for the day was 3,175, so I was below the default. However, my grand total of sodium was 9,048!
Ugh. That is simply a reckless number of sodium, and I went into the day knowing that I didn't care where that number landed and that's a problem. There's an issue under the surface I'm trying to hide, and it's this. I think within the next few weeks, my doctor is going to force me on one of those low sodium diets and that's really going to throw a wrench in my progress I believe. That might seem surprising because during the week I watch the sodium so close anyways, but it's different when it's something I've put upon myself, if it becomes a medical thing it changes. The dynamic, I don't know, it's weird, if a doctor had told me a year ago I needed to lose weight, I probably would have gone in the opposite direction. So I think this weekend I was trying to enjoy what I could. I realize how much I love savory foods, even more than sweet, and I over indulged. One final shebang, that's no excuse the amount I took in this weekend was criminal, and I'm disappointed in myself, and you all should be too. Every time I think I'm growing in this journey I seem to display new a fault.
