7/2/13 - Katie's Eating Healthy Journal: Thursday

by Katie (Jenny Craig 2009 Poster Girl) 3. July 2012 06:44

Today I weighed in at 118!  Ok, I know that means I need to watch myself and what I'm eating more closely.  My instant thought is that the pasta I had last night had way too much sodium in it!  That ties in perfectly with what I was going to discuss regarding sugar and sodium.  Typically I prefer cooking as to eating out because I know exactly what is going into the food I make.  When I am reading labels I try not to go over 650 mg of sodium.  It is also critical for my body to try and stay under 6-10 g of sugar.  It is so frustrating because sugar seems to be the trigger point for me.  I can have more than two glasses of wine or a piece of dessert and I have instantly gained two pounds the following day!  However, I do believe it is important not to deprive myself of the occasional treat.  Tomorrow I will explain how I change my diet in order to indulge myself every now and then...

Love your site!!!! Our health is very important without it we have nothing. It is our greatest asset. We need to stay stress free, exercise, eat healthy, drink plenty of water and pray for a healthy lifestyle and well-being.
