2300, maybe more with the pie. dad's bday.

Good Morning!

8am-10am  Breakfast: a lot of kombucha after some seltzer with stevia also. a few sips of the straw-ber-ita still in a can in the fridgee (baad girl yes it has alcohol but i just had like 4 sips lol) 200.

11:30 brunch at home still: chicken in wrap 400 tops. pea puffs 160

760, excellent

1:30 snack before 2 mi walk/jog: crumb cake 160, caffeine

3:45 after jog & shower: banana 120, plum 60...and indulged in some salt - corn chips...was craving something more than fruit...now i feel better...

...I need to already leave in less than an hour (it's after 4 and i need to leave by 5pm) to go to my parent's house...maybe i'll just sleep over there tonight, yes.

______________________________________________________

Woke up early - doing my laundry which will be done before 11 and already showered. also vacummed! 

Lots of errands...

1. my manicure is screwed up so i have to drive back there today...which is slightly annoying bc it's quite far - over half hour each way...my friend chose the place..i'll never go back! too much annoyannce it things need to be touched up...! but i am happy i went with her friday night bc we hadn't even had lunch at work together in a long time and she's the one i'm going to vegas with...we discussed the trip a little bit while we were there :)

2. After fixing nails, i'll jog today...maybe another short outing - 1.5mi instead of 2mi, yes probably!

3. Later  i'll cook my sirloin beef burgers before the meat goes bad.

4. Happy Sunday and today is also my dad's 65th Birthday! yay! Seeing my dad for birthday dinner tonight back where he lives like 40 min away (close) on Long Island. My sister and mom of course will celebrate too...which reminds me...i need a card for him as well as a gift for him & my sister! ahhhh! oops...Actually, switch that...i'll buy both my sister and dad something from Vegas :) so i'll get them cards now but tell them i'll find something in Vegas for them! (probably T-shirts haha).

Busy day....fixing the nails takes out a chunk of time that i would have prefered to use to relax. so i'll have to find some extra relaxing time tomorrow!

_____________________________________________________

Yesterday i went to a food festival with GREAT food of all ethnicities back at the school i went to for college...it was an event for alumni only. Great food and drinks, $30 entrance fee and wine / drinks INCLUDED. cool. i wish we went earlier - there was also a carnival i saw we missed. There was also some fireworks! Talk about a university with $$$$$$$$ to spend! It's Hofstra University, currently the tuition is $60,000 per year..Hofstra is on Long Island and they hold one of the Presidential Debates there every 4 years...so you might recognize the school from those presidential tv debates.  The school looks even better from the time i went there. i was really impressed. It's a private school, very different for instance from  Queens College right here by me which is a City University, public, not the same in terms of funding and monetary resources to keep up the school and grounds.

....when i went back in 2000-2004 it was $25,000 and i got a little money, not much, but like $3k and also my grandparents had money and i do not owe loans bc of my grandparents. Lucky. But even though i got the 3k, i lived in a dorm and for 3 years each year it was prob around 3k! The 4th year i actually applied to be a resident adviser and was in charge of a floor, my floor, in the dorm, so i lived there for free my last year! Finally, a good decision!

 

Progress as of today: 2 lbs lost so far, only 3 lbs to go!

bearcountrygg on 10/08/2017:
Well....you have a super busy day going on! I remember Hofstra U...fro the debates....sounds like a lovely place!

horn_of_plenty on 10/10/2017:
it sure is lovely!


bearcountrygg on 10/08/2017:
It was nice of your family to pay for your education....Denny and I paid for ours as we went....and with kids and jobs...it wasn't easy....Both of our sons did apprenticeships...so no college,....but we paid for the 2 grandsons....at our age it was easier

horn_of_plenty on 10/10/2017:
yes very thankful that i'm not suffocated in tons of debt now...bc i would have been with the type of work i've had since college...not enough to pay off loans!

also, now i feel really spoiled after you mention you never had one! better off to save your $. but, you'd enjoy it getting them once, especially the pedicure part!


Donkey on 10/07/2017:
Do your toes match your fingers? What a nice little luxury - I bet you had fun.

Ricky & I didn't end up going to the food court or for dumplings last night because we had a rendezvous back at my place which lasted till around 7:30 and we just walked to drop off something at our union hall nearby and got dinner (i really just ate a few bites of his) at a very local, 15 min walk away, Italian / Pizza place.  I enjoyed a smallish garlic knot and a few bites of his chicken calzone...nice. went to bed sorta late, after i cleaned the hamster cage. lol. around 10:30pm.

bearcountrygg on 10/05/2017:
I commented to you on my diary too. Maybe you have upped your salt lately? Chinese, nuts,pizza....maybe you are craving salt and holding water? Glad to see you remembered the banana.

horn_of_plenty on 10/05/2017:
and also i prob just need MORE POTASSIUM! :) i think i'm low on it....obviously. and less caffeine...lol. and less salt. i know this will pass soon but boy is it annoying. worse after my run on Tuesday....so it's a mix of everything that's off. ah well, maybe i'll have an extra banana tonight - i have plenty at home this week and if i don't eat them, they'll go bad.

after having a friend that loved routine and got upset at any change, i'm thankful that my good friend now, Ricky, loves to do all sorts of cool things. never bored with him!


bearcountrygg on 10/04/2017:
Asian food is so good, do you get the msg headache afterwards? Maybe the real thing doesn't have added Msg?

horn_of_plenty on 10/04/2017:
yes, i don't think i eat much msg around these parts of queens....it's good asian food...no headaches ever.
