    Hey! Glad to see you are still sticking with tracking everything! : )
    Just a tip since I wub you so much and want you to succeed – remember that Smart Ones, Lean Cuisines, etc. are FULL of sodium. They make them out to be so “healthy” but really they are NOT. Check out the sodium on the back of one – I looked at the one the other day I had and it had over 500mg of sodium in it!!!! EW! A wonderful personal trainer friend of ours (love ya Kat!) told me once to try to only have this once a week if you have to have it at all.
    Keep up the good work!!!!!!!!!!!!! : )

    MRSABYBABY, oh wow. I didn’t realize! I’ll have to check the label come lunchtime. How much sodium should you have a day?

    Keep it up! I rode the bike yesterday for 25 min- 5 minutes more than the day before! I also am now keeping a food journal, I eat alot. :)
    Now put your hand up….I am giving you a high five for the exercise. I know, Im a dork….I came to this realization a long time ago!

    JEN, fabu job! I really think the food journaling is eye opening. When I first did it I was surprised at all much I ate and the calories that I consumed in one day! ::high five:: Join the dork club. Proud of it! haha

    You should aim for no more than 1500mg sodium/day, but the average American eats around 4,000mg. If you eat a lot of sodium, make sure you are taking in plenty of potassium. Potassium balances out the blood pressure increasing effects of sodium.

    Uh…just in case I forgot to mention…I’m an undergraduate in Dietetics and Exercise Physiology. So, I’m not qualified to give specific nutrition advice (ie, menus, etc), because I’m not a Registered Dietitian yet, but I can answer questions about nutrition and make general recommendations.

    After you get about a weeks worth of meals down, and you feel its a pretty typical eating pattern for you, you might want to compare it to the MyPyramid goals at, just to make sure you’re getting all the nutrition you need. (Its not a perfect tool, but it can give you a general idea of what you should be getting)

    It would be really beneficial for you to have one on one counseling with a Dietitian to get you on the right path, but you might want to check with your insurance company to see if they will cover it. If not, a couple sessions isn’t usually too expensive.

    :) Sorry for the shpeel, nutrition is my cuppycakes :)
