    That mashed cauliflower looks great! We have cauliflower just steamed a lot, but I told my DH the other day that a cauliflower puree or something would be great, and this looks just like what I was thinking! I had never heard of it before, thanks so much for posting this food blog!!!! It's great!!!

    My spark nutrition tracker recommends 60-128 grams of protein a day for me....the range is on my nutrition page down by the calorie range recommendation. I wonder why it isn't on your page?

    well there is lots of protien in peanut butter which I had half a serving of at breakfast and lunch... there is also protien in dairy which I was pretty heavy on yesterday. Actually the only thing I ate that dident have protien in it was (carrots, apples, salad dressing, Jam & strawberries). I dident really have a problem getting hungry at all yesterday though.

I dont normaly track protien but I took a look at my tracker & I got 14 grams at breakfast.... 14 grams at lunch.... 19 grams at dinner and 19 grams for snacks. That totals 62 grams for the day.

spark people dosent have a daily recomendation for protien but I looked it up and the food and nutrition board recomends 49 grams of protien for adult women over the age of 19.

  Me too, never heard of "mashed cauliflower", looks like Cream of Wheat. emoticon

Question - lots of excellent fruits and veggies, but did you get enough protein? Enough to keep you from getting hungry between meals. I am always concerned about the amount of protein I guess in relation to my total calories for the day.

Problems keeping track

Tuesday, June 08, 2010

well I have been struggling the last few days. I will start out good by tracking my food or taking pictures of what I eat and then by the end of the day Im not keeping track at all and Im pretty sure that I have been going over my calories.

This morning I desided to take a peek at the scale to see where I am and I was up by a few pounds. Some of that could be accounted to water weight because its that time of the month but I think its partly due to eating over my caloires and not working out the last few days.

I geuss after the 5k I was like... "ahhh I can relax a little".... and I relaxed a little too much. I have had a few days off now though and its time to get back on track. So Im going to get a workout in, work really hard to track my food today and try to take pictures as well. Im sure the people who read my food blogs have noticed I havent really been posting in a while.... I geuss I have just felt kinda burnt out on it. It really does keep me on track though so I am going to try and keep up with it.

Well Im gonna go and try to plan out what Im going to eat out today. That usually helps too.

~ Jess

    It's not surprising that after a high point like your first 5k your slacking off a bit. The good news is that you recognize and and know what you need to do. I have no doubt that you'll refocus and hit your next goals.

    I had the same problem after my first race. I could not get myself off the couch for a whole week - no exercise, and my food was really bad. I think it's partly the feeling of working toward a goal and then suddenly you're done with the goal and you feel at loose ends so you just slack off. Whatever it is, I sympathize with you! Hope you're able to get yourself back on track.

  I keep doing the same thing - I start off the day, tracking everything that goes into my mouth but stop around dinner time. I guess I don't want to see what the daily total really is - awwww but it is a new day, so I have another chance to stay within my calories. Hope you have a Sparkalicious day, my new spark friend!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I enter my meals for the entire week ahead of time as part of my weekly meal/grocery planning. It makes shopping and cooking so much simpler during the week. Then all I have to do is make the necessary daily adjustments if I don't eat one of my snacks or something. Takes no time at all. You might try it to give yourself a break now and then from the intensity of entering food on a daily basis and taking pictures. emoticon

    I hear you.
My sister got married this weekend, and between the Rehearsal dinner, and the reception and then dinner on sunday with my aunt and uncle my calories were shot to hell.
Needless to say Im back up at around 240 now... ugh.
Time to get back to work and remove the added pounds.

    Don't worry about what we need, what do you need to remain successful? I mean, we all have off days. We all get burned out on the process now and again. (I seem to have one of these days at least once a week! *lol*) Get back on the horse and the muscles will remember how good it feels to push blood through your body and you'll remember how good it feels after and maybe that will give you the burst you need to get back on track again!

    We all need a break from time to time. Thankfully, we have the friendly scale to remind us to get back on track. With that said, TOM can definitely impact water weight by a few pounds so no worries...You CAN do it!

My First 5k ~ Complete!!!

Friday, June 04, 2010

Well today was the day. I woke up at like 5:30 this morning, even though the alarm was set for 6:00. My 5k was not till 7pm but I had to get up early to go to a meeting at my sons new elementary school.

The day dragged by waiting for 5:30 (the time we were leaving to go) to roll around.
I left the baby with my sister and me and my husband and my 5 year old son went up to the park where they were having the 5k. I was so nervous for some reason with all of these silly thoughts going through my head "what if the track is not marked and I get lost?" "what if a thunderstorm rolls through?" " what if Im last?" :-(

I wanted to seriously turn around and go home and just lie and tell everyone I ran it. lol.... Is that horrible or what. I dident though, of course. I got my packet with my little shoe strip and my Tshirt and a few other goodies.



speaking of shirts, I wore my new spark people Tshirt to the race. I Ordered it a few weeks ago but had to return it because the 2X I bought was too big. They said to order bigger, but I ended up ordering too big. It took a while after I sent it back to get it but it came before the race, so I got to give spark some free advertising lol... this lady came up to me before the race started and was telling me about how a friend of hers was one of the people who helped create the site and how she still works for spark people. She thought it was really cool that I was wearing the shirt.


Anywhoo the race was almost 40 minutes late starting because there was people that were a bit slow running the 2 mile race they had before the 5k. But eventually we got to go. I ended up running longer than I said I was going to starting out... everyone is right about the other people and the excitement really driving you forward.... eventually I had to walk though. I did alot less walking than I thought I would have though. I figured as long as I could see people in front of me and there were still people behind me I was good. My main goal was to not be last and my secondary goal was to come in at around 45:00 which I think would be a respectable time for my first 5k. I found 2 or 3 other people who were keeping about the same pace as me and who were also doing walking and then running segments and just tried to stay at about the same pace as them.... It worked out pretty well.

I was surprised to find that at points durring the race I would see my husband and my son cheering me on from the side of the track. They would walk accross the park ahead of me so they could catch me and cheer me on. My son cheered so loud and was so excited.... He said, "Go faster mommy, your winning!" ....... He was just awesome. Before I started the race he gave me a flower and told me it was a magic fire flower and it would make me go faster, so I put it in my hair. :-)


At each mile marker they had a person with a stop watch telling everyone thier time. At mile one I was at 12:00 ...... At mile two I was at 25:00.... Then durring the last mile I ended up with a horrible side stich, Prob because I was pushing myself alot harder than I ever pushed myself durring my training workouts. I almost cried at one point it hurt so much... This guy who I think herd me kinda cry out a bit turned around and smiled at me and gave me the thumbs up, I geuss saying... you can do it. That was nice.


I walked most of the last mile but was able to jog through the finish line at 40:47..... That may not impress some but I am so proud of myself... My husband and son were so proud of me too, which really felt good. My son told me I won the race and told me that when he gets bigger he is going to run and win a race just like me. The look on his face and hearing the things he said made me feel like a won.


I dident do bad though, there were two pages of people who came in after me and I was actually about 6th or 7th place in my age group. Not bad IMO.

Afterwards I got to sit down with my family and they had refreshments for everyone, which I needed badly because I was a hot mess after the race.... My head looked like a cherry and I was pouring sweat. I dont think I have ever worked that hard durring a workout or sweated that much.

I figured that a slice or two of pizza wasent gonna kill me so I ate that and a few oranges and grapes and then shared the rest with hubby and my son.

(WOW I look really tiny here... Its so weird ... I just had to add that lol...)


Overall I had alot of fun and It was a really rewarding expereience and Im very proud of myself. I can see why they use races as kinda a rite of passage on the biggest loser. It makes you feel so great about yourself and in a metaphorical stand point losing weight is like a race, because you have to pace yourself so you have enough left in you to pass over the finish line... and it feels really great when you do.



Thanks to all my spark friends who have been cheering me on durring my C25K program.... I totaly herd you cheering for me as I crossed the finish line!

~ Jess

I'm so glad your positive experience is a good influence in your sons lifes :)

GREAT job on the race, & 40mins is terrific, I only hope to do so well! My race is a trail race and I even run through the woods at some point... it's gunna be tough! I just keep having to remember that the adrenaline and excitment will help me push through the pain & tiredness

6th or 7th in your age group???!! FREAKING AMAZING DUDE!! I love all the pics - I felt as if I was there and YES - THAT WAS ME YOU HEARD FROM CALI cheering you on! Your son and hubby are adorable - THE FIRE FLOWER! Sounds like something you'd find on Super Mario Bros. - he's so cute!

That rush of adrenaline seeing all the ppl around you running sure did help you PUSH harder than ever before! I'm so happy for you! You have tons to be proud of! As far as the side stitch thingie: someone here actually gave me the best advice. When I was starting out running, I would always get em. They suck something awful. Anyhoot - sounds crazy, but try to inhale and exhale when you're on your LEFT foot. So for example - inhale through your nose (can make it worse if you breathe in from your mouth) on your left foot, then down with the right foot, left foot, right foot then INHALE again on the next left foot down. It's basically like every 4 steps you inhale/exhale. It's a magical rhythm that really helped me. And if you get a stitch, you can actually purse your lips on the exhale and kinda make a "phoo" like sound - the stitch goes away before you know it.

I hope you have another 5k coming up soon! YOU'RE A RUNNER NOW! Bet you never in your life imagined you could say that! AWESOME JESS!!!

The side stitch was probably from not breathing correctly during exertion. So when you do practice runs, practice your breathing and it should help a lot. And don't fall over backward when your next race is below 40 minutes -- cause you're doing GREAT!!

    the gyro is basically a flatout wrap with morningstar veggie grilled chicken strips, lettuce & tomato & 2 tbls greek tetzkiki (not spelled right) cucumber yogurt sauce .... you can get the sauce in most grocery stores in the refridgerated section at the deli (where they keep the specialty cheeses)...

It would prob be good with feta too, but would add calories which is why I havent tried it yet.

Food Blog ~ memorial day

Tuesday, June 01, 2010

Well I havent posted a food blog in a few days. I have been away from home at my inlaws and just really havent felt like it. I have stayed pretty much on track though... I may have been over a few hundred calories on friday and saturday .... and then on sunday I actually ended up a few hundred under my calorie range. Yesterday i did ok, I wouldent say great because Im not too happy with the fact that I started dipping sugar wafers into cool whip after dinner. I caught myself after a few though and put them away and then did not eat anything after that so I stayed within my calorie range for the day.

snack: (had to eat something before going out to jog) 1/3 serving almonds - 53


Breakfast - 1 cup oatmeal, 1/2 tbls brown sugar, 2 tbls whole milk - 225
(NO PIC)

Lunch - 12 grilled shrimp, 1 boca burger on wheat hotdog bun w/ tsp ketchup, lettuce & tomato, 1/2 cup baked beans, 1.5 servings broccoli salad, 1/6 grilled pineapple, 1/2 serving angel food cake, 1 serving light whipped cream, 1/2 cup strawberries, 1/2 tsp sugar. - 743



Dinner: 1 cup whole wheat pasta, 1/4 cup peas, 1/2 serving tomato pesto, 1 link turkey sausage, sauteed sliced onion, 1 tbls parmesan cheese...... steam fresh lightly sauced broccoli, cauliflower & carrots in cheese sauce - 477


Random Munching - 1 serving sugar wafer cookies, 1 serving light cool whip - 195


Total calories ~ 1693

    Good job girl! Man, you're a strong girl - at the in-laws all weekend?? I'd hurl! emoticon That would eliminate any mindless munching I'd have done while with them. lol....Good job for staying on track for the most-part! And wafers in whipped cream...yum (gosh, did I say that out loud). Seriously though, I think you just gave me the courage to try a Boca Burger!! I've seen them but I was kinda iffy over trying them but I noticed a lot of ppl here eat them. Maybe I'll run to the store later and get a box.

How's the situation with the perv at the gym that you and your sissy saw the other day? Have you guys gone back? haha...eww!

Keep up the great work - and thanks for the BALL goodie! You crack me up!
