    I could not have stuck to this as long as I have if I was not eating enough. I think that is the biggest problem most people have when trying to lose weight.... being hungry all the darn time and eating food that tastes like cardboard. If my food dosent taste good and look good then I am not satisfied and want to eat more. I had to find a way to eat that would make me happy.... and keep my husband and kids happy too.

There is no good reason for starving yourself when your trying to lose weight... with a little planning and creativity you can work in lots of variety, quantity and quality into your menu!

    actually doing the points I have found that if I stick to my daily points allowance I am at the very lowest range or under what spark people says I need for calories. I usually try to throw a few of my 35 weekly points in each day which puts me around 1500 calories. I have been trying to stick to my daily points the past few days though because I ate up most of my weekly points this past weekend.

    If anyone is wondering how to make the lasagna rolls
Here is how to make it... very simple.

Ingredients
8-10 whole wheat lasagna noodles
1 1/2 cups pasta sauce (I use ragu garden combination sauce)
1 cup part skim or Fat Free ricotta cheese
1 cup part skim mozzarella cheese
1/2 box frozen spinach

1. Boil 8 whole wheat lasagna noodles until tender & drain (I usually make 10 noodles just in case one or two fall apart)
2. mix 1 cup shredded mozzarella, 1 cup ricotta cheese & 1/2 pack thawed and drained frozen spinach (squeeze all the water out of spinach before mixing in)
3. separate cheese mixture into 8 portions.... I usually just press it down in the bowl I mixed it in and then cut it with my spoon like a pie... that way I have 8 equal portions I can just scoop out of the bowl.

4. lay one noodle out, spread 1 portion of cheese up the length of the noodle, then spread a thin layer of sauce (1/8 cup) up the noodle over top of the cheese. Then roll the noodle up and place it spiral side up in a baking dish

5. continue rolling all the noodles. spoon remaining 1/2 cup sauce over each noodle and bake in the oven @ 350* for about 20 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes or so.

ENJOY

    most grocery stores I have seen carry it... you can usually find it in the refrigerated section of the deli near where they keep the specialty cheeses and pasta salads and such.

Every store I have shopped at carries it... except the small town stores. Walmart carries it as well.

I shop at sams club frequently and they carry larger containers of it for a better price.... I would try it first though before committing to a large container... some people don't like it.

You can also find recipes online and make your own. All it basically is, is chick peas (garbanzo beans), olive oil and spices ect. You just blend all the ingredients together in a food processor until it makes a paste like substance.

Hope this info helped.

    The lasagna rolls are great because you can really measure how much pasta you are getting, instead of trying to estimate based on slice size. Each roll has the same amount of spinach, cheese and sauce too so its a very portion controlled meal.

Photo Food Journal - Tuesday July 20 - I'm Baaaack!

Tuesday, July 20, 2010

Well, I have not posted a food blog in a while now. I geuss I got a little tired of doing it. I have found though I have been nibbling quite a bit.

Yesterday was a particuraly bad day. I ended up nibbling alot and I tracked it all and ended up coming out 11.5 points over my daily target. Ouch!!! After I sat down with my tracker last night and saw that it was a big wake up call. I mean how far am I going over my points each day when Im not tracking all the little nibbles and bites I take here and there. The spoon full of ice cream when I make my hubby a bowl full, the 1/2 a cookie when I'm getting my daughter a snack, the lick of peanut butter when I'm making my son a sandwich! Do I really have any weekly points left over at all? Im sure my saving grace is the fact that I have been exercising my butt off lately... but Im really not doing myself any good if Im going to eat away all the hard work I am putting in.

So Im going to start tracking with pictures again for a while. It keeps me honest and on track and I need that right now. I still have a good few days till my weigh in and I figure I have used pretty much all my weekly points over the weekend so I am going to go ahead and try and stick to my daily points target as close as possible.

And to everyone who missed these... I have herd from quite a few people that they really love to read my food blog.... enjoy !!!

DAILY POINTS TARGET: 24

TOTAL POINTS FOR THE DAY: 24.5

- 0.5 OVER

....................

For those of you not firmilar with the weight watchers point system... each food is given a number of points based on how much calories, fat and fiber it has... foods with lower calories and higher fiber have lower points values.

Each person on weight watchers is given a daily number of points they can eat based on things like gender, activity level, height and weight. As you get lower in weight your daily points value goes down.

Each person also gets 35 extra weekly points to use as they wish... you can eat them all at once for a big meal thats higher in calories or you can use them throughout the week... or not at all.

thats the basics.

    I missed them, for sure!!!

You are so good about this - I know what you mean...I wasn't really tracking in my intake the past few days at all. Realized it's easy to get caught up in the world of munching. Hey...when are ya gonna go skating again? I'd love to hear about how much you're skills are improving! Pretty soon you'll attempt a Tripel Lutz on skates!! lol...how are the munchkins? Any summer trips ahead for you guys? I'd love to go down south the LA to go to Universal Studios but i's a bit much and since hubby hasn't been working since March..well, you get it. BUT, there are a lot of inexpensive things we can still do together! Maybe a trip to the beach this weekend...now that's my kinda place!

Great blog again..and good for you for sticking with the WW points tracking system if you find that's what works best for ya...MAN...your face is looking AMAZING and beautiful these days!!!!! Your hard work is really paying off. Happy SparkAversary again!!!

    well I switched back to the points system for two reasons... I was tracking both hubby and my calories on spark people and it was alot of work. spark people nutrition tracker is great but a little time consuming, expecially when doing it for two people on two seperate accounts (hubby has different calorie needs than me cause he is a man so I could not use the one tracker for both of us).

My second reason is I have gone back to WW meetings because I want to make my goal and become a lifetime weight watchers memeber. I figured it was only approprate to end my weight loss journey with weight watchers considering I started with them.

    I am so impressed with your blog. I have read about photo food logs in magazines before but I have never seen somebody's in real life. Very cool. I don't do a photo food journal but I swear by my written food journal. I write down everything I eat, I count out every cherry, cracker, etc. and my measuring cups are always ready for use. I don't belong to WW but I track calories. It has allowed me to lose 36 lbs and now hopefully my last 15. Once again thanks so much for sharing this with everyone. It not only looked healthy but also yummy. Yeah to the blueberries. Keep up the good work.

Changing weigh in method

Saturday, July 17, 2010

well I have been weighing in on my Wii Fit every week but I know its off from the doctors scale by about 5 - 10 pounds and it seems that its off from the weight watchers scale as well by about 5 - 10 pounds so Im thinking that its off.

Instead of keeping track of at home weight and meeting weight I am just going to take a hit this week and switch my weight to what weight watchers says it is, so it can be more accurate in the long run.

So even though I did gain a little this week (about two pounds according to the ww scale) I most certainly did not gain 10 pounds.

So Weight last week according to Weight Watchers and current weight

Last week: 179.8
This week: 181.2

The gain this week is due to water weight btw... next week will be better Im sure.

    It is hard to keep track of both numbers in your head... I just figured I would take a hit this week and switch to the ww weight. Its hard to see the number go up but I know it will start going down again next week and I will be back to where I was in a few weeks. :-)

    I didn't read the whole list but I'm seeing some things that you can easily check off. emoticon

Give blood, get a pedicure, the movie list, public speaking, ......Those are great and easy to achieve.

Good luck with everything.

    I have never attempted to write a bucket list. I have thought about it but never found the guts to do it. I did start a "40 things to do list" and never completed it.

After reading yours i might attempt it again....

    I have a 30 by 30 list and will probably do a longer-term one for 40 by 40 after that! I love your list. You have a lot of work to do! You are open to a lot of travel and a lot of activities! So exciting!

    This is awesome!!! I have a bucket list as well, but I have never written it down. This inspires me to put my dreams on paper and start living my dreams. :)

Thank you for sharing! emoticon
