Home :-D

Debating taking a day off the gym again...like i did the weekend my friend stayed over last week....but i may go tomorrow morning to gym instead. I am physically and emotionally drained right now.

There is NO GOOD in constantly skipping the gym. That's why I didn't skip. I had planned on it once I knew i was going to the beach Sunday. Staying fit is a choice. It's not always easy, but it certainly is WORTH IT.

Morning: banana, sf jello, and a chocolate protein muffin 380

snack Chips, 2 servings, 270

lunch: wrap with lox and cream cheese: 300

before gym: 4pm-5pm: more caffeine, 2 plums 100, tomato & onion salad 100, kale salad 100. 300., wrap with mustard and smoked Boars Head turkey breast around 150 only., water.

bar 140, ice cream 240...380...more ice cream...around 180

total: 1730. 1900...gave into temptation, had ice cream until i couldn't have anymore because i was full of it. (very light ice cream, 60 cal per half cup....so i had ALMOST 2 pints. finally tired. finished my book. texted my guy too much. going to bed REALLY soon.


and about to KILL my neighbors who are blasting oldies music....i'd rather them have sex (if that's what they're doing!?) without it. stupid neighbors. cannot stand them, actually. i feel they forget they have neighbors and when they slam the door every time they close it, it frustrates me.


i'll be heading off to the gym soon after i bring up my laundry and finish my book probably. i'm glad i got everything done today (food shopping, laundry, and will do gym, too). I'll not be buying a dress for summer as it's truly i waste of my hard-earned money right now :-) 


gym will probably be a fast one as I'm glad to get it in, but don't plan to be there long...i'll prob do minimal sets of everything (no more than 3) in an attempt to get out of the gym fast.


I wish it were a 3-day weekend but the good thing is that i'm prepared already for Monday.

Progress as of today: 4.4 lbs lost so far, only 2.6 lbs to go!

You are going to get some ear plugs... lol

Def not trying to complain but just wanna say that I was really smart to make this a 3-day week. I didn't go to bed early enough last night & I am not feeling on top of the world today at all. Hints of sadness and emotions that usually wouldn't come up i feel like they are resurfacing like they tend to when i get overtired. 

I'm just really happy it's a Friday & don't plan on shopping tonight, that's for sure. Maybe tomorrow. Gonna try to go home, eat a LIGHT dinner since i overdid lunch, and get myself to bed early. Only thing i want to also do it read. Maybe even stay off the computer and electronic devices.

Just feeling like I need some more alone time :-) which i will get tonight and tomorrow. I may even skip doing most laundry this weekend....or do it sunday after beach. trying to limit money spending and doing any extra activities this weekend besides minimal things because my body is still resting up still from the previous 2 weekends.


Morning! Nice, short week over here! :-) Well Planned!!!!

6am at home: kombucha 80 (4 light servings, worked finally!)

8:30am-9am at work: banana 120, coffee 50, wrap with cream cheese and lox 300:

11:30am snack: small atkins bar 130

Lunch: to be healthy...lately popcorn does the carb trick for me....gives me enough carbs & i feel full... don't really need to even go light on lunch... had a coworker's leftovers 700-800. more than expected.

1500...and not in a mood to do errands after work. if i go to buy anyting from OLD NAVY it'll be tomorrow!

1600 after fruit.

Dinner: strawberries 50, frozen yogurt 120, 240: 410

Total today 2010.

1925 7day avg. I want next week to be better..


Maybe tonight after work i'll stop by OLD NAVY here in Jamaica.no i'll have to go by me in Flushing....i'm not walking around Jamaica again after work nah....YES....that would be good, then i don't need to do this errand on the weekend really and just get it done after work. I  need a light short summer dress...at least one....and they are on sale.  Probably not buying the sundress today....no.

gonna try to get my weekly calorie average to be in the 1800's...shouldn't be majorly hard...and i have a TON of light ice cream and jello at home so it should be okay to eat a lower calorie dinner tonight & maybe bed early.

Saturday i'll be doing laundry, errands like food shopping, and MAYBE buy a dress on sale at old navy...oh....and gym in evening...so it's a full day but a good day & i can sleep a lot - def going to bed early tonight.  also gonna finish my book this weekend. i really loved the Harry Clifton Chronicles. Read all except #7 because it's not in the Queens Public Library system yet! All 6 books were fantastic!

Sunday is Beach day....should be great!

Then a full week next week.


I am totally in love with my ex-physical therapist. we've been texting 3 years or more most days of the week if not all, lost track. He knows i had a guy from Canada over. I texted him (Paul - my old PT GUY here) even while Canadian guy was at my place.

I want to maybe someday marry Paul...although he has no clue that i love him or that i may marry him yet! jajajaja.....it's still a LONG time coming...i'm working my magic....slowly....on him. and it's WORKING!!!! so happy. lately he's more comfortable in texting with me....and he's much calmer overall.  I don't want a typical marriage. I want to always have my own apartment. I just want to "belong" to somebody...ya know? i want to always walk around knowing that there's a guy who loves me to the moon and back....i hope it works for us in the end!!!!. :)   like i said, it's a work in progress with me and him.

I probably wont even hang out with him until August as I'm not this weekend (just trying to relax, still quite tired out from the past 2 weeks!)....and i don't think the rest of July (but this can change, we'll see overall how i'm feeling!)

Progress as of today: 4.4 lbs lost so far, only 2.6 lbs to go!

puddles on 07/15/2016:
Definitely would not be a typical marriage for sure. Obviously no kids in the picture. Where would they live if there is.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 07/15/2016:
yes, prob no kids...

8am-8:30am breakfast: 600, good. banana, sf jello, protein muffin, chips (big cravings for chips as of late)

snack: yogurt 100 full fat, strawberries 100. 200

12-1pm: lunch: mostly steamed broccoli raab 100, wrap with cc and lox 300. total 400, caffeine.

dinner with dad: up to 700, tops.

total today 1750 is the absolute most and probably far less.

calorie average 4-day: 1930

gym soon then dinner with dad...was planning to do nothing today or just gym and shopping but shopping cancelled for dinner with dad, pushing it to get to gym before dinner and not skip. Trust me, i want to do nothing...and actually, since weekend looks like bad weather, i may go sundress shopping on weekend. :-) it can wait as i don't have $ anyways.


I go back to work tommorow. gym today and dinner with dad later on when he gets out of work. so i realize i'll have to get out to the gym around 2pm....or i may just go earlier - prob not though.

Dad pushed me to get together today (spoke to him last night on the phone)...although i wish he hadn't asked to get together as i'm feeling a bit under and tired. i had wanted to buy the summer dress - and don't feel like running around ALL DAY. so the shopping will wait. Don't have much money to spend anyways. Hope to be back on track with $$$ come August!

I wanted to buy a light summer dress at old navy bc i only have 1 (which i bought around 3yrs ago!) and my guy friend here already saw it. I was thinking to get a dress for when i see him next (like a short one to the knees or hair shorter and sleeveless...you know, typical summer clothing....but i am too lazy to go out to the store...i may change my mind, but totally NOT likely. I don't wear many dresses.

Progress as of today: 4.4 lbs lost so far, only 2.6 lbs to go!

puddles on 07/12/2016:
I love wearing Summer dresses. Have a great day.

Horn_of_plenty on 07/12/2016:
yeah, i might just skip the gym today and go tomorrow lol. quite possible...

then i could go to dinner with dad and maybe get the dress after? there's a sale today.

I'm just so not motivated to do very much as i did run around a lot of yesterday....

but if i did get the gym out of the way...i could even buy the dress after work tomorrow...

glad my dad wanted to get dinner with me, but it makes me schedule a little more restricted as i would have went to the gym just around dinnertime as i usually do.

thinking out loud...need a summer dress...to wear when going out with guys especially lol.

thinkpositive on 07/12/2016:
Seems that there are a lot of sales & you might find a summer dress that is very affordable.

Horn_of_plenty on 07/12/2016:
Yes, i hope to even find 2. And i do not think i'll have to pay an arm and leg which is good! I don't wear dresses often, but I would like to have them as part of my wardrobe for this summer if I need to wear one! And they'll last for many summer seasons. Styles don't change drastically and it's nice to have a couple go-to's :-)

puddles on 07/12/2016:
I posted the recipe tonight so take a look at my entry for the 12th of July.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 07/13/2016:
yeah, it looks delicious...BOK CHOY!

i am actually guesing both veggies can be cooked and then prepared the same exact way as the recipe...

since both bok choy and chinese napa cabbage are tasty when cooked :-) i find them in thai soups often as well as regular veggies in the hot thai dishes! yum!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Forgot to set my clock and needed to not rush this morning because i have a cleaning lady coming & needed to lock my belongings as well as make sure to bring everything with me food-wise for work, make sure to use the bathroom in an unrushed manner as i just can't rush anymore, and make sure to bring gym clothes lol....

So I got to work 45 min late. LOL. All is GOOD. Boss understands completely about the fact it's a busy week thankfully.  I may actually have to work late at work today now...till 5pm with a short lunch oops.

I will probably be writing far less tomorrow thru Monday...visitor at my place for the long weekend over here.

Planning to go to gym tonight for a final workout until Tuesday (Monday i don't want to have to do anything after I drop him at airport. I may change my mind and go to gym Monday, but totally not sure.  

Leg is a bit sore still and tight from all the walking I did at beach this past Monday. But staying positive & stretching...and getting extra sleep.

So like I said, I'm going to gym tonight & also going to pick up my favorite brand of sleeping pill so I have it in case....and reutrn the store brand ones...maybe i'll do that next week at the pharmacy, yes...I will take one probably tonight, my last night taking it until further notice and not while he's here this weekend obviously.

Extra sleep as helped, a lot.


Kombucha: 120 (around 3 servings)

Late breakfast: banana 120, coffee 50, wrap with salami and cream cheese 280. 450.

lunch: around 280 only - popcorn, light tuna, some cabbage and little broccoli too.

total so far: 850...




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