Thanks again Andy, if I'd been thinking I could have looked up the amount of sodium in 8 ounces. My Dad also worked the problem for me, he likes his "little" girl...and ended up with 278.26 mg.

I really am trying to get my sodium below 1500mg/day. Not easy, but I'm headed in the right direction. Getting tired of heart scares and all the medications.

Drove thru subway this morning for an egg white & cheddar on an english muffin with 1/2 bag of harvest cheddar sun chips & an orange juice. If it wouldn't have been for the o.j I would have stayed under 300 calories..live & learn.

This morning I opened the fridge and found leftover pizza. So that's what I had for breakfast.
