I thought today was a good day… I woke up late and did not eat breakfast. After Stephanie got up, we went to a local restaurant called “The Place” where I ordered the two egg breakfast. It comes with two eggs, hash browns (which I subbed with a fruit cup), and two pancakes. I asked for sugar free syrup even though I LOVE their blueberry syrup, AND I drank water instead of ordering diet coke. I felt that although I could have done better, overall I had made a few good choices. I had six egg whites with some salsa for my afternoon snack.
For Dinner, Stephanie and I went to Red Lobster. We spend way more than we can afford going out to eat, but we didn’t completely indulge, we shared one entree (Snow Crab Legs) and the kids shared chicken strips. I eat the salad and Stephanie had the potato. I did not eat the awesome rolls they have there.
I know I should likely have stopped eating, but we went grocery shopping and brought home a lot of apples and pears – so I had two apples, a pear, and to solve a craving – four egg whites. Yes, I’m an over eater – I know.
Anyway, I thought for the most part I had a pretty good day – until I added up the day’s numbers and saw my sodium count… 3,819mg! Sodium is in everything!!! Very frustrating.
I hope to watch my numbers over the next several days to see if there is any relationship with my sodium intake and my weight loss or gain the next day.
