I'm on high blood pressure meds, so I don't have to worry about sodium any more

That's a good call. Adults should be consuming no more than 1,500 and 2,300 mg of sodium a day. Middle to late age folks should be more toward the low end of that range. It's soooo easy to ingest more than that, people really don't realize it. A single package of Top Raman contains 800 mg of sodium alone.
The cafeteria at work is terrible. A bowl of soup has 1200mg of sodium. I've seen some items have 1800mgs. It's terrible.
On a grillin' note, I did up a pork chop so big it could only have come from a pig named Rosanne. And tonight was chicken leg quarters, brushed with Stubb's hickory bourbon BBQ sauce, with grilled zuchinni and baked beans.
that's how i feel about taking cholesterol medicine..."meh, i'm taking medicine so i can eat this whole pint of Hagen-Daz"...they make Diabetes pills too right
i do try to eat better and excercise now, although finding the motivation to excercise during the week is tought. i cant convince myself to do it before work and after work i cant either
i've definately tried to cut out processed foods as much as i can though...it's the high fat meats that i cant seem to give up
so with all that said we're having burgers tonight
