Oh boy... I am still lying in bed right now and am afraid to step on the scale.
My hands feel like they do when I have too much sodium. I just checked my app and saw that my sodium yesterday was 3,297.7mg. That’s 220% of my daily allowance. I should be having no more than 1500mg.
Therefore, even though my calories were within range yesterday, I fear that there may be a fluctuation upwards in my weight today due to how bloated I’m feeling (plus I’m due to have that time of month happen now).
I also see that I’m eating foods that are loaded with sodium (obviously) even though I do not add salt to my food. It appears the main culprits are breads and pasta. Hmmm. I also bought a new vegan chicken patty from Aldi’s and that’s loaded with sodium. The regular veggie ones I normally eat have much less sodium. May also have to completely cut out the Better Than Bouillon veggie base from my daily soup as well. I only put in 1-2 teaspoons in for an entire Instant Pot worth of soup that lasts me for about 4-5 servings, but apparently I need to cut corners everywhere when it comes to the sodium intake. From now on I’ll just have to add extra herbs and spices to make up for having no added sodium/salt in my soup.
Anyway, I’ll be back a little later to actually weigh myself. Just prepping myself for the inevitable water weight gain.
