Did an official weigh-in this morning 170.4. Need to make myself a new ticker!

My NSV for the Spring gallop is to fit well in a blazer that looked tight last winter. Yay for the benefit of a few pounds.

I keep inching up rather than down. Some serious actions must be taken. Also, I need to remember that this isn't just for vanity but it will also help lower my blood pressure.

I am right back where I was four weeks ago, at the end of April. The ticker is just about true.

But I am now able to lift the heaviest weights that I've ever handled at the gym. So there's that.

And I'm in a better place emotionally, with a slightly better-balanced life, though this was not achieved effortlessly.

Ok, so I read that the average adult should get 4700 mg of potassium per day. I went over the last 90 days of MyFitnessPal food entries. I think I came in under 1000 mg EVERY DAY! I've researched the best food sources for potassium and will be having potassium-rich foods on my grocery list tomorrow. Thankfully most are diet friendly. And many are also high in calcium which my doctor recommends.

Tell us what's on your list, Allison. Bananas? Can't think of anything else.

(from a bench. Still walking about as part of the tour of duty. We leave tomorrow but there's a certain amount of timber to be moved before that.)

I drink one ZippFizz per day. It's chock full of vitamins including potassium (950 mg)

My weight is ok but I need (would like to anyway) take off a few more as a buffer before all my summer traveling kicks in. I will be in Houston for a week with dd and will try to mostly eat healthy but we are planning a few splurge meals. Then, I'll be in Napa (just overnight but we cram a lot of eating in), quickly followed by two weeks in London (planning some high teas and the like!)....

I have formulated my plan!

I'll follow the DASH diet (very similar to what I do now anyway). I will stop buying frozen entrees for my weekday lunches (to reduce sodium). I will take leftovers from my healthy DASH dinners for lunch instead. I will cut my alcohol intake. I will go decaf (slowly so I don't get a headache). And I'll see if I like green tea (never tried it, have always liked black tea).

I'm a total green tea convert. Love it.... it does have caffeine, though a low amount so it might be good while you're detoxing the caffeine...
What does DASH stand for?

DASH = Dietary Approach to Stop Hypertension.

alinnell, you might consider Also Salt, which is a salt substitute made with potassium and lysine. See this page:

http://www.alsosalt.com/

A 1/4 teaspoon serving has 356 mg potassium, which isn't a dangerous amount, even if you had several servings in a day. And it does taste as good as salt in most foods.

I'm at 139.6 lbs. currently - notice how I didn't round UP to 140. Going to be down under 135 by the end of June. No alcohol and waaay less caffeine and sugar in my next 4 week's food.

I'm wondering about focusing on making my tummy / waist smaller through my diet and exercise. ETA: not spot reducing, obviously, but just measuring this.

Or should I go for the tried and trusted 'lose 5lbs'?

Or keep working on behaviour modification (a la Beck Diet Solution)?

I'll sleep on it.
