snack: most of a healthy high protein Vegan bar

lunch: healthy. old but still ok sauteed spinach with garlic from last Sunday ouch lol..maybe popcorn, and tofu with some extra sea salt, diet coke 550 appox if i eat most of it.

snack before gym: banana #2 (needing it right now), granola bar, caffeine drink 250 most.

total today is perfect: 1750.

4-day average is a bit high: 1920/day.

________________________________________________

 I am sore in upper thighs and hurting a little in my left ankle. If i have to skip the gym i will, although, i'm only going for upper body really. I am trying to continue with my workouts (2 more) this week & will attempt to do it all within reason.

Good thing is I am getting most of the sleep I need (with help of sleeping pills) but if I'm going to get thru this period of time with a lot going on, sleeping is something that can't be skipped. The pills are actually helping me sleep usually beyond the 7-8 hrs, sometimes more like 9hrs.

I am glad my body can rest right now at least while sleeping. I'm too busy to skimp on sleep also.

I have made it so that after my friend from Canada goes home, I will also be able to rest a little bit before going straight back to work -  a 3-day week next week also like this week.  By having the extra rest, I will be able to continue to feel pretty good for the rest of this summer.  

I was going to go to the beach a day after he goes home (next Tuesday, my last day off before going back to work after Canadian guy goes home) with my best friend, but instead decided to take it easy and only do things around my apartment, errands, gym, etc - but no extra day plans like beach or getting together with friends bc it's too much.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

It's going to be a crazy week - letting you all know in advance that i may not be commenting a lot as I have a lot going on this week...and my mind is sorta wishy washy right now.

I am working Tues thru Thursday and trying to keep my gym sessions. (one tuesday & one either thursday or maybe friday).

my friend from Canada is coming for the weekend starting Friday afternoon till Monday morning.

I have a TON going on this coming weekend.  :-) All good things. 

Progress as of today: 3 lbs lost so far, only 4 lbs to go!

puddles on 07/05/2016:
Make the most of it. Have a great day J. I posted the Broccoli Salad for you to see the ingredients.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 07/05/2016:
yes....i saw it thank you! I do enjoy reading up on ingredients so thank you again. It is something i wouldn't make myself though...too rich :-) but i can see very tasty.

Enjoy your day Franny xo

Your days seems to have started the right way - have a good one.

Horn_of_plenty on 07/04/2016:
it did Frann...and kept doing the right way too.

i'm a bit distracted.

of course i'll still make entries...may even skip a few days at the end of this week..

lots going on :) staycation with my friend visiting from Peterborough (near Toronto)

(counting calories/walking/elliptical/weights/bike)
Weight: 116.0

8am breakfast: Cinnamon apple Mighty Muffin (not in love with the flavor but it was part of a sample package so i wasn't gonna throw it out...) 220, with extra fish oil pills 20, banana 120, and cream cheese on top of the muffin after microwaving 60: 420, good.

11am brunch: soy chicken, mixed veggies in a little sauce 300, chips 130: 430.

12:30lunch? - bacon jerky 300, strawberries 100: 400

total so far is fine: 1250 :-)

afternoon snacks: pringles 100 cal pack, popcorn 100 cal, granola bar 100 cal, banana 120 cal. total: 420

total so far: 1670, fine...going to gym, but just for a light late afternoon sesson. upper front thighs are sore from jet skiing...and my body's digestive system is seriously out of whack today...but also since i'll be out, i'll pick up some food for the week & cash as well when i pass citibank on the way to the gym. I will be busy all day tomorrow & it's best i get this done before the week starts.  I always forget how long it takes my body to rest after a big event / big day / big night. sheesh.

If i go to the gym, i should make in an easy session...or i may just skip it really, undecided still...feeling sore from jet skiing...not sure what i'm doing today really. 

good thing is all my laundry is finished. and i did a few extra things like my throw blanket on my couch and also the bathmats.  I have company coming Friday and these are a couple items i did in advance and glad they are clean and will be pretty clean for the weekend still - saves me laundry time & hassel for laundry i will need to do right before company comes, probably doing it Thursday evening.

total today is 2,120 great :) gym worked out :)

day avg approx 1935/day. excellent.  ____________________________________________________________________

Jet Skiing was an overall success for our first time. Now I can rest saying I've done it! Relaxing right now. Glad i don't have plans. laundry and gym should be enough today. I'll try to get to the gym a lil early since i just realized i was at the gym on the early side Friday so it's ok for me to get there a few hours earlier & not have to go late at night tonight....i like to wait 48hrs before sessions.

Yesterday was a FULL and fun day! I met my friend at 1pm and we drove off to go Jet Skiing. We got there at 2pm and filled out the forms and waviers. After all was said and done and we went out with our (private) guide...worked out so well that we got one guide all to ourselves!...we were out in the Atlantic Ocean with the boats and having the time of our lives.  Water was a bit choppy. So we didn't make it to Coney Island...but we still had fun & that's what it should be about. :-) I am proud of my friend jen and myself.  We all know females usually don't have the same levels of testosterone as guys...and i'm proud of us two women heading out and jet skiing on our own. What an awesome day.

After we were done jet skiing, we got back around 4pm to the jet ski rental place. Around 5pm we were back at my friend's house and we hopped out of her car and into mine. We went to quickly drop our waterproof cameras off at CVS by here house (and also pretty close to my work) and i also picked up some sugar free drinks for us as we were both STARVING. We then drove off to go out to eat at a Hibachi place sorta by her (20 min away) and we shared the main dish which was all hibachi veggies and then extra bean sprouts instead of noodles / rice...and Chilean Sea Bass. It's worth it to share. We also had a nice soup and salad. She got two drinks but I did the "right thing" and had an appetizer of hibachi asparagus! haha. Big meal as I ate the entire thing. We were so hungry.

We also did a fast shopping at a discount jewelry store before dinner since we were in a shopping center and everything was on sale for around $1.99 each! and the earrings / necklaces were a really NICE selection for that price!!

When dinner was over, we drove to another town called Forest Hills. It's also in Queens. She wanted to pick up some pastries for both her boyfriend and daughter who was coming home the next day to celebrate her bday with my friend. So we went there. Forest Hills is a very "uppity & lively" town and a town with a huge nightlife. Many restaurants and bars and afffluent people there. We walked around a bit, talked to some friendly cops, and enjoyed life. I got home after dropping her off first...i got home around 11pm! What a nice day yesterday was. Glad to be home today without a place to be. VERY happy about it.

 

 

Progress as of today: 3 lbs lost so far, only 4 lbs to go!

puddles on 07/03/2016:
Glad you enjoyed your day J.

horn_of_plenty on 07/03/2016:
Thanks F. Me too. Happy no injuries!!


Donkey on 07/04/2016:
Props for the jet ski adventure. I read that and thought "scary!" Good for you!

Horn_of_plenty on 07/04/2016:
thanks Jul... i will comment on your entry as well...but a lot is going on & i am very distracted right now...

thank you so much for the props, i will probably only do it 1x in my life alone. :-) only other times would be on the back of a strong man.

(counting calories/walking/elliptical/weights/bike)
Weight: 116.0

Food: 

9am Snack in AM, bar: 200. all natural, vegan totally all natural and not an artificial protein bar at all. Higher fat and lower sugar 9g and protein only 7g (wanted to try this new bar and it was tasty). and also a banana as I know i need more potassium / magnesium. 120.

320. all healthy.

11:30: bar coconut whey protien 150

1pm and then i had a wrap before jet skiing 300 cal at most and caffeine.

around 750.

big dinner: prob around 1,000 most.

total yesterday was excellent: 1750. SUPER SUCCESS.

________________________________________________________________ 

Weighed a totally empty 116lbs this morning after nothing in stomach, etc. I hope to bring the # down a hair more (i would prefer to weigh 112-115 and I think i'd settle there), actually, if I can - but there's no time limit. I'm loving the new lower weight that i've had since like March. Just loving it. Clothes fit better, everything's better at the lower weight. 

I am happy with my current weight, don't get me wrong.

Anyways, today's a great day.

I am going Jet Skiing today in the afternoon with my friend from work at a local place called Rockaway Jet Ski.   You can google it if you are interested in seeing what it's about. It's a Jet Ski tour with a group of folks. We are going from the "Rockaways" in Queens all the way to "Coney Island" which is the home of the famous Nathan's Hot Dog eating contest as well as an Amusement park with a famous roller coaster.  The whole tour is 1.5hrs round trip.  We'll be jet skiing in the Atlantic Ocean.

I'm going to drive to her (30 min) and then go from there. but first, i need to get the brazilian wax done which is about 10 min from her as she lives right by my work and that's where the wax place is.  I wanted to go after work yesterday but the woman was busy & i wasn't going to wait & waste time after work when i still had to go to the gym. Yesterday did work out quite well also.

Everything worked out great yesterday, I got the waterproof cameras too just in time in the mail from Amazon yesterday! I ordered them knowing they'd arrive just in time. I got them for such a steal - 4 cameras for $30 total. In the store, 1 camera was $20. Glad i was able to return it. I bought 4 because my coworker wanted two and i wanted 1....and the price of 4 for $30 was good. I'll use my second camera next weekend when my friend form Canada comes & we go to the beach again! So it was worth the price. oh yeah!  

Jet Skiing costs me a pretty penny indeed. It was $200 to sign up for this activity. But worth it as I've never been. I count this weekend as a mini-vacation (not going anywhere on vacation until maybe my friend's bachelorette mini vaca in late October.  I'm enjoying these mini trips and activities. 

I'm happy overall with my life. Very happy. I'm getting to do new things & have new experiences. 

Progress as of today: 3 lbs lost so far, only 4 lbs to go!

_____________________________________________________

Afternoon Plans:

get out of work at 2pm. get extra cash from supermarket (for brazilian wax she only takes cash)

get brazilian wax (so i don't have to do it next week because next week will be very busy also and my Canadian friend is coming for the weekend next weekend and well...i'll just get this done now as a week is still good timing for things like this!)

go home, drop off my stuff, get dressed for gym while home instead of later at the gym...check if i got my waterproof cameras from amazon

and if so, return the camera i bought from Rite Aid for double the price ($20 in store, but 4 for $30 on amazon - i bought 4 (2 for me, 2 for coworker - i will use another camera next weekend when my friend is here from Canada)!

and gym. :-)  then home...and relaxing....all night.

I don't think i will need a sleeping pill as i am pretty tired right now at 12:40pm after lunch.  ? not sure about this. we'll see when i get home from the gym later tonight.

I have been sleeping a lot more this week. needed it.

All in all, I am quite tired but i do realize i've planned extra for some rest during the long weekend. So even though I am tired now, I'm also glad I have planned to do everything in moderation this weekend.

Someone from work who is attracted to me offered we get together Saturday early evening, but, I'm turning him down. I think the beach for jet skiing is enough? We'll see how I feel then? I think Jet Skiing is good enough plans for Saturday..no need to throw in planning to have $ex too in evening in addition to jet skiing...!? lol. tmi!?  too much guys!?  I actually will not rise to his (sorta frequent trying as he's been trying with me for few months i'd say)....not rising to his bait just yet. :)

 

 

Progress as of today: 4 lbs lost so far, only 3 lbs to go!

puddles on 07/01/2016:
I had to chuckle at your comment about the guy... could be the best sleeping pill J... lol Enjoy your weekend...

1250 after lunch, good. ...peach 80

bigger dinner, but healthy still: around 600.

total: 1950. good.

1 mile walk outside :)

because i've been tired, i had extra carbs (pretzels) at lunch. i'm also skipping gym tonight and going tomorrow after work and sunday also. we get out of work a bit early tomorrow, so i can manage extra sleep tonight and reading and quiet time as i'm very much looking foward to that. works out better not to kill myself at gym tonight :-)

1890/day 6-days

_________________________________________________________

Wed night into Thursday & Thursday night into Friday - def got more sleep, even over 8 hrs. I took a sleeping pill on Thursday night & just wish i could keep sleeping right now (6:45am). I even forgot to set my clock so it's great i woke up lol...just enough time to get ready for work....

Glad to get extra sleep. Tonight I may not need a sleeping pill...i'm already feeling so tired now.

Sleeping pills for me do not always wear off so easily.

Thankful for the extra sleep this week. Overall, my skin has improved aside from a huge pimple that i may actally take care of NEXT week if it doesn't go away easily. Today i'll try to limit my activities to only the gym after work.

Progress as of today: 4 lbs lost so far, only 3 lbs to go!

puddles on 06/30/2016:
Sounds like a good plan J. Enjoy your evening of reading and relaxing.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 06/30/2016:
yeah, i do want to walk - maybe i'll go outside later for a breather (while still at work) ... and another short walk for like 10min after.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 06/30/2016:

Horn_Of_Plenty - Tuesday Jun 28, 2016
(counting calories/walking/elliptical/weights/bike)
Weight: 115.0

1860 4-day average :)

The only way I will get thru this summer is by being thankful FOR WHAT I HAVE NOW.  Like Donkey mentioned in her entry i believe on the weekend, people at my workplace are also taking loads of vaca left & right. I could actually take a ton of time off in the Summer too...But, if i did that, I'd have NO days left for during the year. I need some days to last me thru the winter and early spring! I have a total of 15 days (10 vaca, 5 sick) to last me thru April 1st. It's an easy task this year since I don't have any major events to use my days for...I will take a few long weekends in summer.Like Fridays off a few times. My goal this year is to take days off as I need to - long weekends really - as a way to lengthen my days a bit & get a bit more rest when i need to.

Also, by taking days as I need, I hope to be able to keep up with the gym & my workouts. And most importantly, my reason for being quite conservative with vacation time and what i choose to do - is that i want my health to continue to improve and my strength in my ankle to increase.

My goal is to be strong, for running, next summer. NYPD next summer. I vow to myself. I feel good to keep on striving to get there :-)

1700 today. 1 mile walk.

__________________________________________________________

So Happy Tuesday :-)

Union Meeting tonight at 6pm after work that i will talk to (10min from my apt 1 way - so a mile overall).

Very prepared for this week.

6am: kombucha and seltzer with stevia 40

8:30am at work: wrap with cream cheese and salami (its a very small wrap, but hits the spot & satisfies but I am getting sick of it so will start bringing other things soon possibly) 260 for the wrap. and a small banana 100. coffee 50. 

450 :-) excellente! and i have lots of veggies for lunch & stuff...very prepared more than i thought i would be this week! proud of myself! getting VERY good at planning. 

11:45pm part of a peanut butter soft chocolate chip bar, boss had some too. 150 tops.

600 before lunch, very good. (anything below 700 i consider awesome before lunch at work)

1150 before meeting, will eat at home after meeting one of those probiotic muffins and jello i think. bed early & reading.

in the mood for alone time...lately...needing time by myself like MUCHO...not sure why i feel this way...starting to want my space lately from everyting & everyone.

Progress as of today: 4 lbs lost so far, only 3 lbs to go!

cybermom4 on 06/28/2016:
Good luck at your meeting - hope it all goes well.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 06/28/2016:
Meeting is not for me to talk at - only to attend. I'll be in the crowd in an auditorium. Not a small type of meeting that requires my input, only my attendance.

Lol...but i try to go to most of them. They occur every other month, onl 6x per year. BUT, although only 6 times, they are always Tuesdays which are my gym days so it's always a conflict. So now I actually like to try to rearrange my gym schedule so as not to skip gym or meeting.

I usually try NOT to go to gym after the meeting as it would turn into a REALLY late night...meetings end at 7...I used to do this a few years ago...but it's not the best schedule to be out so late and so early in the week getting home around 10pm!

lol...thanks for the good luck wishes anyway.

it's a good meeting to attend this time around - they'll be discussing our new contract.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 06/28/2016:
actually, tons of people skip the meetings. but, i do it as a choice specifically for my father more than myself. I live where i live because of him and I have my job because of him. and he is a BIG GUY in the union. so that's why i go to meetings for my administrative division. Even though my dad doesn't attend these meetings, since he's not my division, I try to do the right thing. Especially as I live only 10min from the hall it's at.

Some people live far away, like even another state some folks...and it's hard for them to attend.

but because of my case - i try to do the right thing.

I skipped at least 2 meetings during the winter months when i was busy prepping for my sister's wedding.


puddles on 06/28/2016:
It all sounds good J. You should be proud of yourself. Have a great day.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 06/28/2016:
Thank you so much F....i will keep reminding myself of the good i've done so far & how I'll continue to work to bring myself UP :-)


OhioRaven on 06/28/2016:
Hey, I save ALL my vacations for the Winter. Then I can go see my buddies in Florida and Georgia.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 06/28/2016:
Great idea...something to think about...though i like to use them in summer to go to beach and stuff over here :-)


happy-1 on 06/29/2016:
Just found out I have 8 days of vacation. Will take 2 over labor day. not sure what I will do with the remaining ones. Maybe Yosemite or Big Sur.

It is good that you participate in your union and show your support. Apathy is the enemy of the people.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 06/29/2016:
Yes...I am going and attending the meeting because I want to try to do the right thing. It's voluntary to go, but is the right thing for me to do - especially since I live 10 min WALKING away...

Your possible trips sound cool. I like to take days in summer for going to the beach (under 1hr away & the local one that I haven't visited may only be 40 min away?)

Oh, I like to also take days in summer bc my best friend goes with me to beach. Also, beach is draining...a whole day...so a longer weekend with a Friday off here & there is helpful in summer :-)

During Fall, i will get three "free" days off for Jewish holidays bc i'm Jewish and so is my boss...and these are actually three totally extra days in addition to my 10 vaca and 5 sick per year. So...after this summer, I plan to use my 5 sick days mostly during WINTER! :-) All my 10 vaca days will be used up by end of summer. And I'll get thru Fall with the holidays as well as my 3 free days since our holidays (jewish ones) fall during the week this year which is lucky for me....

hope that wasn't too confusing...when i write it out, it helps me too for planning in my head ;)


innerpeace on 06/29/2016:
I have vacation days, however, I don't have money to take vacation. Good luck on your plans, you always make your goals. DO IT!

Evening Update, 8:30pm Sunday....

Turned out to be one heck of a beautiful day. I ran into a family 2nd cousin while in Rite Aid in the morning doing an errand...and then I ran into a longtime friend while tresspassing in a town at the beach! He was tresspassing by bike. Was VERY funny as we were both VERY FAR from the park I used to walk at where i'd see him & walk with him there....like 30 minutes away driving. He had biked it. funny to see both these good guys....

Day turned out way better than expected :-)

Trying to remember food :-)

I wasn't very hungry at the beach, weirdly. ...things i brought were 2-100 cal pack pringles (never again, they are such small packs and not satisfying!) 200, 3 cut-up peppers 150-200, I brought bacon jerky but never opened it bc i was totally NOT in the mood, a small caffeine drink that i love cherry flavor 40...diet coke on way home....and some mints (not counting those cals)...i don't think i really ate much! 450 or so....oh! and i almost forgot i had leftover cabbage salad and some leftover thai on top of it! lol 200 more. 650 at beach, at most!

Dinner was large & good: Diner food. :-) Huge plate of stewed zucchini but sauce was light which i liked !! 300?, pickles (not counting), few large shrimp in a nasty breadcrumbs yucko~ they ruined them! 100, grilled portabella mushroom 50, and some veggies 50, and a huge piece of challah bread as much as 300. total here: 800, TOPS.

total today i know will be ok: 1800 :-)

This was a new beach and ultra successful experience with my best friend. Day was GREAT. no complaints. and i even got gas and vacummed my car at the gas station after she went home. I feel great starting the week. I got extra food at the diner also. and I'm good to go! proud of myself.

I woke up feeling overwhelmed.  But after writing a comment on Donkey's entry, i feel a bit better. I realize i can go & enjoy my Sunday :-) and not think about the work week right now or all the plans that i haven't set fully.

i don't know why other than the fact that i'm anxious to fully plan the next two weekends which should be fun but no plans are yet set in stone. Lots to do...but it involves communiating with my friends and also involves when things come on sale. just a lot of hoops to jump thru to make sure it works out :-) And the fact i forgot to pick up my Rx yesterday...and don't really want to go today to do it...debating it. otherwise, i'll have to go after work tomorrow?

8am tasty breakfast: protein & probiotic muffin 210 with a banana 120: 330. very tasty & good idea. will do it often as i just ordered more of the muffins on amazon. Flapjacked Mighty Muffins. high protein.

Now it's 8:30 and i don't want to push myself to do anything...

The best plans sometimes is not having a big plan all set out in front of you. Spur of the moment things are far more fun then many other well planned activities. Give yourself a break your going to drive yourself crazy. Have a great day J.

you're right yes. but if i don't plan a little, it will be sorta a problem...and i will not be able to get broadway show tickets or get the tickets for jet skiing if i have to wait longer than i should...yes, you are right & i am listening F :-)

I have to wait because deals don't come out for the show yet & my friends get the deals, so i have to wait for them...and pay them...and for the jet skiing i also am waiting till tomorrow to pay for it before confirming with my friend from work. lots to plan with other folks :-)
