    So here we are..MONDAY 7/5/2010 1st day of my contest prep! I fully enjoyed my last day yesterday as it was the 4th of July, with pizza for lunch and a carne asada quesadilla for dinner along with a few beers! Normally I would not have pizza because it makes my stomach upset but I do love it and I love mexican food. Both things I try to limit to once in a great while. But I knew I wanted to splurge one last time. And boy is my tummy still not happy about it!!!

    I woke up with so much energy today and hit my am cardio hard! 45min (must have been from all the carbs!!!) πŸ™‚
    25 rolling stairs
    20 run/hill (treadmill)
    Meal one down.. 1/2 cup oats, protein shake and 10 almonds

    Today Gina and I are meeting Pete @ 619 MUSCLE in San Diego to go over all the vitamins and supplements that I will need! And to take actual measurements. That will be posted later πŸ™‚
    After that I will do my training for the day SHOULDERS/UPPER CHEST/ ABS..
    Today is one of my days off so I am able to split up my workout, which is really nice!
    meal #2-Protein pancake (my personal fav.!)
    Until later…

    Jess, you’re off and running. Great job so far! Can’t wait to follow your journey. You are going to do so awesome. Your meal from yesterday definitely gave you a little pump I’m sure. Now you probably wish your stomach could have a little pump too! LOL! Sorry your tummy’s hurting but you’ll feel so great later today or tomorrow and as you continue the journey. Great job so far. Enjoy your training later today! Can’t wait for updates!

    Wahoo, we are off to the races! Sounds like you had a great 4th of July and are now ready to get this party started! πŸ™‚ Amazing what those added carbs will do to your system. Usually it is loads of energy or an upset stomach. Glad you had the energy and woke up roaring to go! Good for you for getting in your a.m. cardio and starting your plan out fresh and on point!

    We now have you all ready with your supplements so you are good to go! We have your starting weight and measurements so now the progress begins! I am so excited for you

    Thanks for keeping up posted on how things are going…

    Go Jess! Go Jess! Go Go Go Jess!! πŸ™‚ Love the last hurrah meal! You went out with a bang and now it begins!! This is going to be the BEST experience especially having Gina right there by your side!! You can do it!! πŸ™‚

  5. Gina Aliotti says:

    she is right on your page Traci, going for the Mexican food! Seems people love the Mexican food, something about the salt! πŸ˜‰ You like Mexican, Jess likes Mexican, let’s bring on the healthy Mexican tacos!! You know I can out do any Mexican Restaurant! lol

  6. Traci says:

    Haha I know, I do love some mexican food! And I know you could out do any mexican restaurant! Hey good idea! Lets do it! Bring your flip and lets hit a mexican restaurant and make it Gina approved! πŸ™‚

  7. Gina Aliotti says:

    I’m down!! Bring it!!! πŸ™‚ lol. Seriously I think Mexican is the safest to eat out, believe it or not! Why?? order a salad and use the salsa for dressing. Either bring your own protein (BYOP) and add that to it or order a shrimp salad or ceviche (if they have it) yummy! A little salty, maybe, but safe choice! πŸ™‚

    Enjoying getting off work early today, hoping to get to bed early! Feeling pretty good, other then I have a sight headache. First thing i can think of is ‘sugar withdraw’ πŸ™‚ And I only had one cup of coffee this am. Usually have another later in the morning.
