So yesterday turned into a day of rest for me. This typically happens on Friday and I am totally ok with that. My husband and I are endeavoring to start a major construction project so we spent quite a few hours at the supply store last night gathering the things we need to get started today. I can honestly say I am not sure we will hit the gym today. I do know that we will spend hours working on the renovation and that I will squeeze in some yoga at the very least in my living room tonight.
In other news, I have been reading labels lately, a lot. Can I just say there is tones of sodium in the weirdest things. Yesterday, I go to make lunch and start looking through my very bare cupboards (I need to get groceries) and decide that we'll have some beans. Not a great choice but it's in the cupboard. Well I get it going on the stove and look at the can. and OMG it has 45% of your daily sodium needs in one serving. The beans are sweet so I expected sugar not salt. But then, as I was standing there I had a flash back to Jamie Oliver's Eat to Save Your Life (here's the You Tube video of it) . At one point during the special he is cooking a spaghetti sauce and he demonstrates how easy it is to hide salt within the sauce. It just drove home the point that I really need to pay more attention to what I am eating. Sodium for me is huge, it makes me bloat up and nobody wants to be bloated. So that was the last pack of pre-made beans I'll be eating and thankfully it was the last can in the cupboard.
Are you surprised by what you find on nutritional label sometimes?
Have a fabulous Saturday!
