I like salt...m'kay!
So, yes...I dump some on my veggies that I 'roast' till they are charred.
I love it on eggs in the morning.
I love salt on chicken...
and if I don't put salt on it, then I put something resembling salt.
Like season all.
I love ramen.
I love V8...and no- I don't drink the reduced sodium version because it's bland.
I add salt to low sodium soup.
I know...why did I buy low sodium soup...um..
It was an accident.
And don't put a piece of banquet fried chicken with breading in front of me...
I pour salt all over it...and then make a pile next to my chicken so that when I finally eat the breading off,
I can dip my chicken in the salt.
I have no excuse.
However, this leads to a 'bit' of water retention.
two or three pounds worth.
So during my monthly suck fest where I weigh in...which would be tomorrow..
I have to de salinate.
I do this by eating foods I like without salt.
yogurt and granola bars...
and chicken tacos with salsa.
For two days.
Till I am nearly yogurted and granola barred out.
I just ate my granola bar...
I will be eating yogurt with my peaches and honey later.
Another acceptable food is sweet potato with(1 T) butter and walnuts and brown sugar..
I got by with my eggs this morning by putting 1/2 tsp of salt on them and then coating them in pepper and hot sauce.
I had a chicken with peppers and onions and mushroom sandwich from charlie steakery for lunch...no cheese and no salt.
I am hoping the water residing in my ankles will depart and I will hit 160 lbs tomorrow.
If not...well then at least I don't have to weigh in for another month...lol.
I will at least hit 161. I have increased my muscle mass...I can actually see it.
In my arms. In my biceps and triceps.
Oh, and when I say I 'lift' 45 lbs...It is on one of those machines ( the fly thingy) Not on a weight bench with 45 lb dumbells...so at the most it's 22 lbs per arm.
I aint the hulk, yet lol.
Well, here is to hoping I manage to flush the rest of this water out of my system.
This has been a tough month. I exercised every day but four of them...
I watched my calories like a hawk.
I hope it pays off.
Hugs to you all.
Keep on fighting the good fight.
