Deception- hidden fats and sodium

Friday, December 30, 2011

Wow I just saw my fat and sodium intake was high for today, I fixed what I thought was a healthy dinner and discovered that it was until I added the feta, well guess who wont be having feta cheese anymore! Other than that I think I did well today, still below the calorie markers and got plenty of exercise in the last 3 days. I can see why I hit a plateau. Sure I was hitting the cardio hard and strength training twice a week but I have been stuck at this same weight (give or take 3 lbs) since August. I have made changes in what I eat, such as more nutritious meals, fruits, veggies and whole grains but I wasn't counting, checking and logging it. Now I see what a big help that is.

Thank you SparkPeople and Happy New Year

    The nutrition and exercise trackers are marvelous. Nothing like clear data to give you a good picture of what is going on emoticon emoticon

    Congratulations on figuring out what you need to do to get going again on losing the weight and being more healthy.

    If you are not already doing so, use the nutrition log to fill out your day's food and drink. You can make adjustments before you eat to get the most bang for the "buck" calories.

    Also, the pie chart of daily intake at the bottom of the nutrition log, "See Today's Full Report", is a great tool to make sure the protein, carbs and fat are in the proper proportion. Again, you can make adjustments before you eat.

    Soon you will see what works for you.

    You can do it, I know you can. Here's looking forward to a great New Year/New Body in 2012! emoticon emoticon

    "I can see why I hit a plateau."

    That's truly wonderful. Recognizing where we have a problem is the first step to handling it.

    "...but I wasn't counting, checking and logging it."

    Exactly my point! Congrats for making such a laser-like assessment of the issue that's holding you back.

    "Thank you SparkPeople..."

    And thank you for providing an example that make be exactly what someone else needs to "spark" his/her own journey.

    May you make 2012 a year of joy!
