fiber filled sunday sumday.

Sunday, August 17, 2014

I spark and I track and I track my food!!
and yet no matter what I add or change or exchange I can never get my fiber up on SP.
I think when those foods were added onto sp the fiber content wasnt added.
So, from now on I am going to manually add my own foods and spark from my food favorites list. It is the only way I can be sure I am tracking my fiber.
I know I am eating more than 2 grams of fiber. I have been adding ground flax to alot of my meals. I dont understand why so little fiber is being tracked. It is the same as recently when my calcium was OVER tracking. I was eating around 200 daily of calcium, more or less, and my tracker was showing around 600 daily. Something was way off with that.
Anyway. I have been doing alot better with my meals.

No late evening or night snacking. and the snacks I do have are planned, and are healthier, or at least not so very unhealthy.
For example, instead of a bowl of ice cream, I have a weight watchers 80 calorie fudge stick.
or if I am really craving something chocolately, I will have a fiber one bar.
But I am not having them late night as I might have before.
I am being alot more mindful of what I eat, however, I am seeing alot of my meals being taken up by carbs.
I really need to find a solution to this, I really need to cut some carbs out of my diet.

So, I have gone to the walking track the last 2 evenings.
Trying to start back slowly, 35 minutes does it for me. The foot is still pretty much numb all the time, but my new shoes feel good. No excessive rubbing, so far no blisters, they arent at all tight, they are comfortable.
I havent had them on any dirt roads or trails yet.

I have found myself a little out of breath after 15 minutes or so and that is from sitting in the house for nearly 2 months.
It is alot different to walk for exercise than it is to walk around in a store shopping.
If people dont believe that they should really try the track or trails and find out.
But I am feeling ok about it.
I hope this will be the week I will find out what my nerve/muscle tests show.

Hummus.....I tried it for the first time this week.
I find it to be an acquired taste. I see alot of recipes and alot of people on sp who seem to live on the stuff.
I tried some on a baked potato.
and I tried some on a piece of whole wheat toast.
I am going to look for some recipes on here that might have less carb content.

But today is a kind of a day where all I want to do is lay around and relax.
But I am going to lift weights today and get in some exercise.

    Here are two ways to add fiber
    Fiber one cereal 14 grams 56% of daily fiber needs
    Shirataki noodles insoluble fiber Zero calories "This fiber contains more than 16 amino acids and several vitamins and minerals. Many potential health benefits come from the glucomannan in shirataki noodles, including weight loss, decreased cholesterol, diabetes control and gastrointestinal regulation. These noodles are available online, as well as in Asian and natural food stores."
