Another week, another weigh in. Since last Monday’s weigh in I’m down 1.9lbs but since Thursday I’m up 1/2 a pound. I attribute that to my usual nemesis of salt and lately laziness. Laziness??? Yes but not on the exercise front. I’ve been lazy on the food preparation front. The last month or so I’ve been eating a lot of prepared food such as smoked herring, tuna salad kits, canned chili and chocolate milk. All of these overall aren’t bad for me but when I eat most of these in a single day the salt accumulation puts me over the top.
I need to get back to making more smoothies again. I still have one for breakfast every morning but I use to make 2 more and take them with me for my next 2 meals. I need to get back to that or at least start making my own meals the night before so I can cut back on the salt. I usually only have this problem on work days so it could be worse since I only work 4 days a week.
I had planned on swimming tonight but tweaked my knee slightly this afternoon so decided not to risk it. It feels fine tonight so tomorrow I’ll at least try to do my normal workouts. If it comes back I’ll be shutting it down as I don’t want to be totally out of commission for Sunday’s race. I don’t think it’ll be a problem tomorrow….let’s hope not anyways!
