Sodium bombs, new duds and open house love
Remember when I mentioned the Mr's sodium was out of control in my weigh in Saturday? Well I decided to do some investigating in his FitDay to see what the culprit could be other than the things we already suspected. I did a sodium breakdown by food and saw his salad dressing was coming up as 800mg and I knew that wasn't right as he purposely only gets things under 300mg. Well, it would help if someone would put they're having 2 tablespoons instead of 2 SERVINGS of something. The thing is, he doesn't even have 2 full tablespoons of dressing because it won't fit into his little holder so he's been screwing himself on Zesty Italian for who knows how long. So that knocked 600mg off then we're going to have him finish off the Laughing Cows and won't replenish that supply. He was using unauthorized Ole High Fiber tortillas (you know, the ones I buy for fish tacos and chicken quesadillas?) for lunches and they recently SERIOUSLY jacked up their sodium to 350mg and lowered the fiber so buh bye. Instead, we bought Tumaro's low carb tortillas and they have 60mg of sodium and 80 calories or something like that. They taste like stale cardboard on their own but I always stuff 'em with something good so we'll just have to adjust. His 460mg cottage cheese went byebye for grody low salt kind for the protein and to keep him fuller during the day. We got some pre-portioned raw almonds from TJ's to help balance the cheese we're having to cut out from his lunches. He's required to pre-plan all of his meals the night before so he can pay attention to the sodium. So hopefully this helps...it already has for today's food...under 1900mg of sodium!
I got some tops for the trip in a few months from Avenue and low and behold they actually had some cute tops that weren't all cap sleeves! Hallelujah!
I got a black and light blue ruched polo shirt which makes my chestage area look pretty dang good with an underwire bra and the crossover v-neck shirts actually have sleeves! Those are really flattering so I picked up four of those. That should about do me for a while. They're just fitted enough that even if I went down another size they'd probably still look okay so I think they'll last me a while.
We came up with a great Total Trainer/Free Weight hybrid workout yesterday. The Mr wants to do more rower workouts so he found a good one on Shape.com of all places and he's going to do that tomorrow.
We went to two open houses and fell in love twice. We may need to stop doing that. The place we fell in love with last week? Gone. The area we're looking in barely has any inventory and when they do, they snatch 'em up. Sigh.
What did you do this weekend?
