I’m feelin’ very poofy lately.
I think I know why though….
First off, It’s been almost 2 weeks since I started my little healthy challenge and I still haven’t had any treats! Wahoo!
I’m very happy about that. If any of you know me personally, you know that is nothing short of miraculous!
HOWEVER, although I’ve been abstaining from treats, we’ve been eating out a TON this week! We usually go out to eat about once a week AND I usually try to choose healthy items when we do.
Sadly, we’ve gone out to eat about 4-5 times this week! I haven’t been too stellar in my food choices either. I think because I’m depriving myself of treats, I’ve been letting myself indulge a little in other areas.
Really dumb, I know.
However, it hasn’t come without a price!
I am so stinkin’ huge and bloated this week! It isn’t pretty.
I know it’s because I’ve ingested SO MUCH SALT! Auuughh. My body is sayin’ “what the heck!!???”
It’s pretty pathetic. In fact, last night I looked down at my legs and feet and they were so giant. It’s very sad.
Sooooo, I’ve been trying to improve and leave out the salt. Salt might seem like a minor thing, but it is not! If you significantly reduce your sodium intake, you WILL notice it on the scale.
Give it a try….you’ll see.
Don’t add any salt to your food, try to limit processed foods and choose healthy, light choices when going out to eat.
It makes such a difference. Very hard to do, but the payoff is pretty big.
I’ve learned this lesson very well this week.
Aside from all the cruddy restaurant fare, I have been eating fairly healthy at home….
Here are some pics…
Well, there ya go.
I’m going to significantly shape up my diet this week in hopes that my body with deflate soon. It’s tough to be patient especially when I’m doing so well in the sugar area.
It is SO tough!
Live and learn I guess. I seem to have to “learn” a LOT!
Till next time!
