New wake up time

I’m adjusting my wake-up time on “school” nights beginning tomorrow morning. Instead of 6 AM, I’m getting up 20 minutes earlier. This is so that I can have breakfast at home, rather than take it into work with me. I can’t stand plain oatmeal, and if forced to eat it, knowing that it would save my life, I’m not sure I could do it. So when I was at the grocery store today, I picked up a box of Honey Nut Cheerios, which is surprisingly low in sodium. I bowl of that instead of oatmeal is like ambrosia after rotten limberger cheese.

Pasta and Maragaritas?

I stopped at the groecery store on the way home from work today to pick up some groceries–and it took longer than usual because I had to actually check the sodium content of the stuff I was buying. When I got home, I actually cooked, something incredibly rare for me. I made plain pasta and then poured a little olive oil over it, and that’s what I had for dinner. Very low sodium.

I got a package today–a birthday present from Doug and Rachel–it’s a Maragrita set. Very cool. I called Doug to thank him and tell him that now I need to learn how to make them–and he said that there is more on the way! So! To be continued…


So this morning I had a bowl of plain oatmeal (from Au Bon Pan). I added some raisins and a little brown sugar for flavoring, but that didn’t really add much flavor. I think I’m going to buy some cinnamon and add that for flavoring instead. In any event, I ate the oatmeal, which should have no sodium in it whatsoever. First step in reducing my sodium intake. I imagine that stuff grows on you, but I had a bit of a hard time with it.
