the good the bad the truth in the pkg

You know every time you turn around you see more junk food trying to make itself look better.
Just because they add some vitamins or fiber does NOT make them have less fat and/or sugar.
For example: my husband loves Pop Tarts (not one of my temptations I don't like them)
they have started adding calcium... my husband thought great. I told him to read the calories per serving. Hmmm 210 calories... he though well no problem I'll just eat them one at a time... I told him to look again... YIKES one pastry not one pkg with 2 pastries is 210 calories that means if he eats both of them it would be 420 calories... and no real nutrition to show for it. I think he's decided he does not like Pop Tarts as much now.
This is a good lesson for us even with the better food choices... make sure the serving sizes is what we think they are or we may be taking in too many calories. I for one and checking all labels closer from now on.
Today was a slow exercise day for me. I had to work it in around getting my hair cut and taking care of my MIL. She wasn't feeling very good today and her blood pressure was up again. She got to thinking that she needed to check the date on her med bottle, it wasn't out of date but was close... so she opened up a new bottle after talking to the Dr. and took an extra tablet. I'm glad to say her Blood Pressure is coming down and I can rest easy tonight.
I'm hoping for a better day tomorrow.
