I didn’t do much of anything today. Last night my nose started bugging me and today it was stuffed up and a big pain. I think I must have a sinus infection. I probably should have headed off to the doctor but instead, I slept most of the day. 😛
I’ll head to the doctor Tuesday if I am not feeling 100% better when I wake up.
I dropped a tiny bit from yesterday. I consider that good news. Hopefully, that will be all the water weight I gain on my switch back to carbs. Now I want to see the scale start to move down a little bit even though I am eating carbs. I should be able to lose 2 pounds a week at this calorie level.

I was a bit tired yesterday so I did not start the week off with a bike ride. 😛
Tip Of The Day
A few quick quick quick tips before I crawl back to sleep.
Watch your sodium level. Along with counting calories, you should keep an eye out on your sodium intake. Most people eat WELL over the RDA level of sodium each day and I really do mean A LOT MORE.
High sodium levels can cause all sorts of health issues, but it also can cause your weight to spike up and make you unhappy with the scale.
Moving back to a carb menu makes it much harder for me to eat low sodium. On Atkins, I was easily sticking around 1500 mgs a day and now back on carbs eating some processed food, I am up to 2300 or higher every day.
I am going to scrutinize my food journal to see what changes I can make to get my sodium level back down even while eating some carbs and processed food. You may need to do the same. 😛
Happy Dieting, see you tomorrow
