Potato Soup

It's major soup weather here in NJ so last night in order to use up some of the veggies I had I made this:

1 onion
1 red pepper
squeeze of minced garlic
salt, pepper, dill, thyme, parsley
6 red potatoes (cut up)
1 box chicken broth

All I did was sautee the onion with the pepper, add spices, cook for a bit, add broth and potatoes and cook!

Went to gym for bodypump and when I came back i blended with the hand blender and voila!

Yummy soup!

In Classic Jessica Blog form I will now list everything I ate yesterday because I was so good and only ever blast this blog with posts when I am good! Greek Yogurt w/honey drizzle Cheese String Salad w/fresh mozarella and vinegarette Root Canal - aka huge stretch with no food Zumba (while still numb from root canal) 2 chicken thighs w/o skin and 1 bag of steamed cauliflower That should reflect well in tomorrows weigh in no?!?!

Getting in the groove

I have been doing ok on this South Beach extravaganza. I am super strict during the week and on weekends it appears I suck. I am trying to have more control, but I am a massive foodie so I figure its the balance my body needs to not lose the lbs extra fast so they come flying back. This past week I weighed in at 152.5 which means I gained 2 lbs over the weekend and lost 1 already.. I am fine with the fluctuation just because it meant I could drink wine, eat sushi, and pizza, and french fries while out Sat night! I had to stop with the morning omelets I was getting super naus from all the eggs. Now every day goes like this:
Cup of nonfat plain greek yogurt with a drizzle of honey ( I know not south beach approved but I am too much of a health nut to eat fake sugar)
Cheese String for snack
The other night I made this soup that is perfect for winter and I would imagine no points (WW will always be in my head).

Veggie Soup:
3-4 Carrots
1 zuchini
1 box frozen spinach
1 32 ounz diced tomatoes
1 8 oz can tomato sauce
1 box vegetable stock
1 can white kidney beans (Canneloni)
spices (dill, parsley, thyme, salt, pepper, oregano)
Freshly grated parmesan for top!

All I did was sautee onions, carrots, zuchini with garlic and olive oil until tender. Add spices stir around. Add tomato cans, and stock. Make it hot! Add spinach and kidney beans and cook until the soup thickens up (about 30 minutes).

Serve with grated parmesan!

Er Phase One?

So on Thursday night I had a cup of whole wheat pasta and then the carb free time was over. I just couldn't do it anymore!

I also can no longer eat eggs! Blech!

So for the past couple of days I have been eating nonfat plain greek yogurt with some truvia and calling it a breakfast.

Shabbat was kind of ok I have definitely not been as strict as last week but it was kind of ok. I gained .5 lbs back so was pretty good on Sunday.

Greek Yogurt
Some nuts from a trail mix
Chinese Food Beef with broccoli with no sugar - who knew you could ask for that!!
2 wontons in garlic sauce - AKA best thing ever and I call eating only 2 a great triumph bc. one time I ate 10 in one sitting. Just saying.

Onward to an awesome week of losing at least 1 lb!

Tuesday, October 29, 2013

1 week in

Official Weigh In DAY:
153. Down 4 lbs since last Monday so I will call that a win!

Today's eats:

Coffee with sugar free creamer
Nonfat plain yogurt with truvia
Grilled chicken Salad with avocado and balsamic vinegarette. Side point I was at a restaraunt and I didn't eat the extra fries!!
Chili with cauliflower underneath it (pics below)
Jello cup!
Who doesn't love a cauldron of chili!

This is 1 sautéed onion, 1 lb ground beef, can of kidney beans, can of black beans, diced tomatoes with some chili powder, garlic , cumin, salt and pepper!

I wanted to mash the cauliflower but my sink broke with that inside it. You win some you lose some.

Exercise was body flow!

Weekend and Monday Eats

On Friday I had this appetizing omelet (tomato and mushroom) and this salad with feta cheese

My shabbat dinner was chicken soup, meat sauce, and spaghetti squash and a sugar free jello for dessert (south beach win).

I was mostly healthy on Saturday but I did have 2 bites of mandelbread (mandelbrot?) and then while walking home from lunch out at a friends I stopped by my brother and sister in laws where everyone was sitting around a huge chocolate cake with frosting! UGH my downfall is cake. LOVE IT.

I had a piece and moved on in my day because there is no point in dwelling on my downfalls really.

Sundays are really the hardest because of the going out factor but this past sunday we walked for Alzheimer's so got up and out bright and early! 

Food was:
Nonfat plain chobani w/truvia
Salad w/tuna and cheese (dressing was too oniony for me so i stopped midway)
broccoli with melted cheese
Steak with steamed brussel sprouts
Chocolate Cake from my fave bakery nearby (Don't even regret it)
Carrot, spinach, apple, strawberry juice (made in my new JUICER!)

HUGE change in my eating habit here because in the old days I would just eat whatever. I made dinner for my stepfathers birthday and the menu was:
Beef kabobs, lamb kabobs, mashed potatoes, cole slaw, stuffed and fried mushrooms, stuffed eggplant, steamed brussel sprouts.

I didn't actually make some of those things but all I ate was a steak and steamed brussel sprouts! And let's be real, no way i was not having some of my fave cake!

SO on to Week #2 of Phase 1.

Disclaimer- I reread what I am supposed to be doing on Phase 1 and apparently I am not measuring my food nor eating the right foods and cheeses always but whatever. It's working!

Day 3

Day 3 was a mini weigh in day for me, just wanted to see if I was making any progress and as it turns out I was! On Monday I was 157 (a definite mix of Chinese food fat and the birthday week leftovers) and Thursday morning I was 153! If that's not gonna keep me strict I don't know what will!   

Day 3 was cheese omelet then salad:
Turkey cut up with my fave dressing

Dinner was:

(Grossest pic award) 
That was roasted eggplant with tomato sauce and cheese. Not as great as breaded and fried but got the job done! 

Dessert was roasted pumpkin seeds! I carved them out of a pumpkin myself (just call me the kitchen queen) 

Wednesday, October 23, 2013

Day #2

Phase 1 Day 2 = Success!

Coffee with sugar free peppermint mocha creamer
Mushroom and onion omelet
Almond Snack
Salad with lettuce, tomatoes, cukes, tomatoes, feta cheese, kidney beans and balsamic dressing
Cheese Stick snack
Turkey burgers (ground turkey with spices and parsley in grill pan)
Spaghetti Squash with tomatoes, peppers, and onions

The importance of this picture is showing on the top right corner. Yes those are pizza boxes that my in laws brought over for dinner! I did not partake at all and made myself the plate in the corner there.

No gym tonight too much socializing, but Day 2 is done with NO cheating so I am hopeful this will work!

Day One!

Yesterday went as well as it could have gone I guess.
Sauteed Onion adn Mushroom omelate
Lunch: Grilled Chicken Salad w/ balsamic dijon dressing (Threw some roasted brussels on top for bulk!)

Day 2

Everyday there are baked goods in my office. Today was doughnuts and I held strong!

PS Coffee
Strawberry Chobani
Salad w/leftover salmon, corn, lentils, and Light Vidalia Onion dressing

Spaghetti Squash (Eaten before I could take a pic!)
Sauteed onion, red pepper, and tomatoes with EVOO, Oregano, Salt and pepper, mixed with roasted squash and cubes of fresh mozzarella. I usually make this with feta but I didn't have any and had just bought an awesome assortment from The Kosher Cheese Guy!

1 cup low fat caramel delight ice cream.

I will probably regret this choice but I needed it for my sweet tooth!!!

No gym as I was at a Dr's apt but tomorrow is another day.

Tuesday, October 1, 2013


Today was harder than expected as apparently I am used to eating incredible amounts of food.

Coffee w/sugar free Pumpkin Spice creamer
Strawberry Chobani
Salad- lettuce, tomato, cukes, corn, can of tuna, light sweet vidalia onion
Sauteed onions, garlic and zuchini w/cup of brown rice and 1/2 lb terriyaki salmon (see pic)

Work Out:
BodyFlow- The instructor changed the class and it was taught by two people! Weird and annoyingly distracting. But it was faster than usual so I most likely burned more calories than usually.

The only downfall was today when somebody brought us danishes! I had 2 bites (urghhh no self control). Onward!

Monday, September 30, 2013

Oh. Hey.

Over the past couple of months, I have been logging my food on the WW app to no avail. Working out 3 nights a week has toned up my stomach but the past month of holidays has changed that. I went from a 153 with a flattish stomach in a zipped size 8 to what feels like a whale with a humongo blob belly at 156.5! So I am back to maintaining this blog! I will be eating healthy and logging my workouts here from now on!

So back by popular demand:

Monday (PRE DIET):
Coffee and Creamer- trying to cut back on the creamer its a very unhealthy habit!
Chocolate Popems ( in a meeting - working in the healthcare industry is ridiculous with the doughtnuts!!!)
Fiber 1- 2 point Brownie
Snyder of Hanover Peanut Butter sandwich pretzels
1 bowl of yellow split pea soup
Dinner at Mocha Bleu:
1 slice Margarita Pizza
French Onion Soup ($9!!!!)
Shared Disco Fries  aka French fries with mozarella cheese soaked in gravy aka heart attack on a tray
1 cup pumpkin ice cream

Tomorrows Lunch is packed and ready to go:
Coffee and sugar free creamer!
1 greek yogurt
1 salad with tuna can and lowfat sweet vedalia onion dressing
1 apple
Dinner-Sauteed Onions and Zuchini and Brown Rice
BODYFLOW class at 6:30!

A healthy lifestyle

I joined the gym! It had to be done and I have been wanting to join this specific one for awhile. They have great classes for me (Body flow- mix of yoga and tai chi but more upbeat, pilates, yoga, and zumba), daycare, and a pool! And I am being way better with eating fruit and veggies instead of oreos!
Dinner 2 nights ago: Chicken breast w/carmelized onions and steamed broccoli

Yesterday Eats:
Peach nonfat Chobani
Cat cookies - Awesome lowfat trader joes (1 serving =15 cookies=3 points)
Humongo Falafel w/roasted eggplant spread for lunch at 2pm w/diet coke

Exercise- Body Flow class at 24 hour fitness!

Back on my game

So on Monday I bought a bag of Mint Oreos for the weekend and they were gone by Wednesday. NOT ok. So I am back on track now which just means I need to be really conscious about eating vegetables when I am hungry and want to snack.. not cookies.

Recent Dinner: Grilled Chicken, steamed broccoli and sauteed mushrooms (if only I always ate like this)

Another Dinner: Tortilla pizzas.. very thin and yummy! Roasted mushroom, tomato and pepper (3 seperate kinds G-d forbid my husband eats a mushroom)

An ACTUAL salad for lunch!! Hasn't happened in a month!!

Tuna, lettuce, tomato, corn, roasted mushrooms, peppers, cukes a squeeze of dijon mustard and a Tbsp of light mayo w/some apple cider vinegar.

Everyone has been telling me I look skinnier which is annoying bc I STILL WEIGH THE SAME! But whatever I am being very strict this week and have also started eating earlier in an effort to boost my metabolism in the morning.

Yesterday looked like:
Banana - now at 8:30 am not 11
Iced Coffee w/fat free vanilla creamer and skim milk
A chocolate chip brownie oat bar from Trader Joes (Amazing! and 3 points)
Chobani -nonfat peach- finally cheaper than $1 each when you buy 6!
Above tuna salad for lunch
Chili dog for dinner - downfall of the day. there is always one!

This week I have big plans to be on my game. I can do it.

This week I ate whatever I wanted... What else is new.. but on Monday I weighed in and I got:

Starting Weight: 167.5lbs
This Weigh-in: 155.5lbs
This weeks gain: -1.5 lb
Total Difference: -12 lbs

The week in food pics:

 Grandma Birthday Cakes- She loves Strawberry Shortcake but the rest of us were getting sick of it so we got 1 chocolate and whipped cream and 1 strawberry shortcake.

The lowest point of the week might have been the hubs leaving a plate of extra icing on the side and coming home to find I had eaten all the extra sugary frosting...
The Bud loves food too!

Dinner last night:

Sunday Treat: Iced coffee from Wendys of all places.. 99 cents!!

Another low point: Yesterday at work I ate 2 Dunkin Doughnuts!!! 2!!! That is 30 points. NO MORE!

But I did find 2 point yogurts! Yoplait Greek.. hopefull they taste good.

And that is my rambling post for the day.

Fashion blog anyone?

Please ignore the mess that is my apt.. but this is an example of my work uniform:

Banana Republic tank and cardigan, J Crew factory minnie pants (called something else there), Jessica Simpson wedges (bought on sale at marshalls and super comfy basically worn everyday). and a little bud in the corner!

This is my uniform. Can you tell I don't want to talk about weight....

I gained 2 lbs. I attribute this to to my lack of control and eating out both on Shavuot (aka the fatning dairy holiday), Mothers Day, and also the shiva period that followed my uncles passing away.

Starting yesterday I am back in the weight loss game for real.

Starting Weight: 167.5lbs

This Weigh-in: 157 lbs
This weeks gain: +2 lb
Total Difference: -10.5 lbs

Yesterday I ate:

Fiber Bar
Salad for lunch w/ 1/2 avocado and some feta
1/2 cup nonfat vanilla frozen yogurt blended w/ice and coffee!
1 salmon avocado roll
1 sweet kani roll

AKA HUGE difference.
I can do this!

Deal of the day!

With my new obsession of buying work clothes I decided to make an impromptu trip to Banana Republic tonight to check out a new work bag ( I only have an old Longchamp that is legit dead and torn).

So in a moment of energy I decided to try on some trouser pants.. Martin pants are the ones I thought I would end up with but I put on the Sloan fit trouser leg in Size 8P (which is really a size 6? did I make that up?) and they fit so well I just walked to check out thinking they would be 40% off of the list price of $89.50 and was just gonna do it. They rang up for $19! And in a size 8P!

New Job Update!

Today was the first day of my new job and I loved it! As it turns out last night I had bad sushi (I think) and spent time during lunch with my new boss in the bathroom of the restaurant actually vomiting. Legit terrible. But now I am feeling better!

Today I ate:
Fiber Bar
Some baked ziti (and threw up)
Peppermint tea

And now will try and eat the rest of those noodles...

Todays weight looked like:

Starting Weight: 167.5lbs

Three Week Hiatus

Sooo Passover was a definite low point. And when I am not losing, I am hiding... from this blog. So for the 2 weeks when I was off my diet (aka stuffing my face with macaroons and matzah and brisket) I didn't gain and this past week back on somewhat track, I lost 1 lb.

Starting Weight: 167.5lbs
This Weigh-in: 158.5 lbs

This weeks loss: -1 lb
Total Difference: -9 lbs

Soo slowly but surely I am losing but this is definitely not as easy as it once was... In addition to regular life I also have a very sick family member (which prompts last minute restaurant meals from the hospital) and a new job (starting Monday!). So now I might be a bit spotty but I really would like to post more as it actually helps me lose weight! And hopefully inspires others as well :)

Monday, March 25, 2013

It was almost a good week..

Yesterday morning I weighed in at 159.. and I thought great 1.5 lbs this week!.. but alas this morning was back to 159.5.

Starting Weight: 167.5lbs
This Weigh-in: 159.5 lbs

This weeks loss: -1 lb
Total Difference: -8 lbs
Yesterday I ate:
Omelet w/onion, green pepper, part skim mozzarella
lunch @4:00pm - 2 cups of Ditalini pasta w/meatball sauce (no meat, just sauce)
dinner - Ice cream sundae

Technically I was fine in the points but who knows... Slow and steady wins the race I guess.

Chag Sameach/Happy Passover to all!

Hopefully I wont gain 10 lbs of Matzah! 

Thursday, March 21, 2013

And its Thursday already...

What a week in failed picture and eating attempts.
So far this week has been...

Fiber Bar
Cauliflower Soup
2 sushi rolls
2 bowls pasta of this yummy pasta
1 cup caramel delight flavored Edy's slow churned ice cream

Yummy pasta

chicken w/1/2 sweet potato and a scoop of basil pesto hummus
white chocolate covered graham cracker
Dinner may have been chinese takeout of fried rice, chicken w/garlic sauce and some broccoli from beef and broccoli dish, and there may have been an egg roll involved.

fiber bar
Lunch- falafel in a pita (a whopping 13 points!)
Dinner- 2 slices of fancy pizza (I assumed they are 16 point together could have been less though)
1 Stella Doro cookie

I will be shocked if I actually lose anything this week.

Weekly Weigh In

This past week has gone better than expected. The only issue is when I cut my food down, milk supply seems to go down also. I am not a huge fan of that but so far we have been OK with it and the Bud seems fine.

So this weeks stats:

Starting Weight: 167.5lbs
This Weigh-in: 160.5 lbs

This weeks loss: -2 lb
Total Difference: -7 lbs

This number also means that since being 9 months pregnant I have lost 40 lbs. Definitely giving myself a pat on the back for that one!

Here is to losing 15 more!

Lunch one day-1/2 chicken breast w/sweet potato and steamed cauliflower and broccoli

Trying to capture a BBQ Brisket Sandwich at Smokey Joes that Hubs and I split..
 meanwhile I captured a bun and a bud!

Must get better at picture taking.. This was Polynesian Skirt Steak (Recipe Below)

Roasted Asparagus w/EVOO, S & P, toasted sesame seeds and soy sauce

Breakfast of strawbs, vanilla lowfat yogurt, and some granola!

The Skirt steak recipe I used was from my sisters in laws cookbook:

Polynesian Skirt Steak

1/3 cup pineapple juice
1/3 cup low-sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
1 tablespoon minced peeled fresh ginger (frozen minced ginger cubes.)
1 tablespoon honey
1 garlic clove minced (or frozen minced garlic cubes)
1 1/2 lbs skirt steak

Combine first 6 ingredients in a large zip-top plastic bag; add steak to bag.  Seal and marinate 3 hours, turning once.

Remove steak from bag, reserving marinade.  Broil steak 5-6 minutes on each side.  If you’d like, you can baste when switching sides.

Weekly Weigh In, Just a bit late

Apologies my loyal readers as life has swamped me and I haven't been able to blog. This week was a toughie.. I made food for Shabbat and knew it was gonna be bad.. (menu in post to come) but for now here are the stats:

Starting Weight: 167.5lbs
This Weigh-in: 162.5 lbs
Total Difference: -5 lbs

This weeks loss: -.5 lbs

So, yeah.

On Friday I weighed myself and got 161! I congratulated myself all weekend while I ate pieces of pie. And then on Monday (aka official weigh in day) I had gained back a whopping 1.5 lbs. So needless to say this week I am going to be much stricter on my pie consumption.

Thursday, March 7, 2013

Must turn flash on..

Taking pics for this blog really only happen on my iphone and it's getting pretty bad with these shadows and things..

Recent Eats:

Monday Night: 
Salmon (i ate 1/2 that portion ), Brown Rice, Sauteed Peppers w/Jamaican curry, cumin, S & P

Tuesday Lunch courtesy of Abbie!

Wed Night: 
Eggplant Parm (WW style)- aka dipped in eggwhites and baked w/breadcrumbs, sauce and way less mozzarella had I not been on diet
Salad w/ butter lettuce (my fave from Trader Joes), tomatoes, cukes, beets, corn, avocado

I have actually noticed I have been eating a ton of avocados, they are delicious and apparently in season because 4 of them in a bag from Trader Joes is $2.69! But alas 8 points for 1... So maybe instead of eating them all myself I will share with the Bud. I have been meaning to start feeding him some but it has to be when I am home and lets face it. I never am.

Weekly Weigh In

I know, 3 posts in one day. But what can I say when it rains it pours!

Starting Weight: 167.5lbs
This Weigh-in: 163 lbs
Difference: -4.5 lbs

After this weekend I was sure I wouldn't have lost anything but alas it appears I lost another 1.5 lbs! I really hope the scale is not broken.

Posh Tomato

Over the weekend I was careful with my eating but also didn't hold back so much... I definitely  partook in my desserts. I realize that on Shabbat I only eat 1 meal that day so having a big meal full of points is not that terrible.

3/4 cup nonfat Chobani w/blueberries
1 piece whole wheat challah
3 pieces fake shrimp w/cocktail sauce
1 piece salmon
roasted asparagus
trifle (devils food cake, chocolate pudding, whipped cream and berries)
oreo cake
Saturday night I saw Safe Haven (yes I am a terrible movie lover- aka all things Nicholas Sparks) and on the way we stopped at Sixteen Handles. If I wasn't in a car and it was dark and scarfing the yogurt down then I would have taken a picture. Maybe.

3/4 cup nonfat Chobani w/blueberries
Lunch was at Posh Tomato a cool extremely thin crust pizza place near my moms house in Brooklyn. I discovered it on Instagram and knew we needed to check it out:


Eitan loving his caesar salad :)

My mediteranean pie - Plum tomatoes, kalamata olives, zaatar, labneh cheese, and some random seeds

Moms green olive pie (with a cute bud!)
I ate the equivalent of 1 pie and some caesar salad.
 2 chicken thighs
Steamed veggies w/soy sauce
( leftover trifle!)

The bud ate a mix of carrot and squash:
