I see why I am struggling. The Costco sliced pepper turkey has a crazy amount of sodium in it and I have been eating this sometimes twice a day!!
I Googled it and my sodium should be about 1500.... Yesterday it was at 2600!!!
Wow! No wonder I have been feeling very marshmallowy (is that a word?)
So today I am at 1800, not quite at the goal of 1500 but a heck of a lot better. I really want to finish this year at 139! That would be three years of maintaining ..... I understand it is just a number blah blah blah and muscle weighs more than fat BUT if I am at 139 and have more muscle mass that just men's I am leaner... Right?
So my food is all packed. No pictures .... Derp
1. Protein coffee
2. 6 egg whites and 18 almonds
3. A cup of veggies and 3 ounces of home made turkey loaf
4. Same as #3
5. A serving of Greek plain 0% yogurt and strawberries
6. Protein shake with unsweetened almond milk and peanut butter
1300ish calories, a gallon of water is the plan
and I did 30 minutes of the treadmill
The sodium kicker today was the SF BBQ sauce I have been using.... I didn't realize it had so much sodium in it.... Dang. I am not going to toss the meal I made but I won't be buying it for a while
Sometimes I feel like this weigh maintenance thing is like I am a scientist or a puzzle
Always seeing what works, what doesn't while trying to fight the boredom of eating the same thing every day yet not going too crazy
Later guys and gals
