Horn_Of_Plenty - Sunday Aug 16, 2015
(counting calories/walking/elliptical/weights/bike)
Weight: 124.5

Today my plan is the gym.  I could also do errands, but not feeling so inclined to do them (pick up detergent, food shopping, etc...) because I want to relax this afternoon a bit after getting ready before a concert i'm going to tonight on Long Island and getting home late after midnight. I'm going with 3 other people. One CANCELLED on me yesterday saying she'd send me the $ in the mail.  She's the biggest flake I know & I will NEVER be doing anything "big" with her again (especially if my $ is involved ahead of time). 

I really just want to end the friendship completely, but it's hard to do that because we've been friends so long - 15 years.  We've definitely grown apart. She is single, 39, and she can never see past her own life or problems...she thinks only of herself - hence her thinking it's ok to cancel on a concert we planned to go to around 2 months ago.

I luckily gave her ticket to someone else who i'll be picking up and driving to Long Island with me.   Of course i'll drop her off too...I will probably get home after midnight. The person I gave her ticket to is a coworker who I invited to come for FREE. Since the woman who cancelled said she'd pay me by mailing me a check. The reason I asked the other to come, and for free, is that I know she's not made of money - at all - she's having car problems and has to pay for that right now - and her mom has always struggled with $.  The girl i asked to come should not have to pay - and it wouldn't be right of me.  The girl that cancelled on the other hand, last minute!!!, she should pay me for her ticket! for sure! :) 

I am happy to bring my coworker (she's also my friend of course!) because she's also never been to a concert at the beach theater (and neither have I) and she is such a nice, genuine friend.  She has hardly even been out to Long Island! I am happy to show her what it's like and go with her...i'm just happy to experience it with someone as nice as she is...to spend time with a quality, genuine person. It all worked out for the best.

As soon as I get the $ in the mail for the check from the one who cancelled, I will be cutting most of my ties with the one who cancelled.  Not thinking EVER to invite her to anything again.  Just so you know how close we used to be, I was thinking to invite her to my sister's wedding this coming April! Yeah...and my sister was only allowing me to invite 2 friends. And she was friend #2.  Yeah, you can bet she's not on that list anymore. 

She is so flaky...and then complains, on facebook to the world!!!, that HER friends are flaky. No, she is the flaky one...and her friends are just giving her right back what she dishes out to them. She deserves it!  She doesn't consider how her flaking out hurts others too.  All because she wants to be happy she decides to cancel last minute!? How is that fair to her friends?  What if it was only me and her going?! And I couldn't find someone else to go with!? Her action was not acceptable...not a good friend in my book.  but i'm not too terribly upset because it worked out better in the end for everyone involved! :)

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

Calories have been decent for over a month. Nothing too crazy on the high end. I can do this...I haven't really stuck to my plan of creating a deficit but I have stuck to being more accountable.

The plan for the next two weeks is simply to stick with it...keep calories in check and aim for a deficit on days when it's possible :) my bday is just shy of a month away. Goal is simply to be happy on that day lol!

Trying for a couple lbs loss but also trying not to get anxious about losing weight. Looking forward to having several days off in September for the Jewish holidays so I can rest up a bit :)

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

Early morning snacking: 2 plums and kombucha around 150.

10:30 before gym: plum 50, coconut water 50, wrap with kale veggie patty 200, turkey jerky (really good buffalo flavor by Boar's Head) 150 = 450 or so total.

total so far today: 600, good.

during gym: large banana 150, after gym small banana 120.

870...good....

Protein bar 230.

1100 :)

not gonna be crazy low cal today, aiming for maybe 2000?

Probably around 2250, good.

Progress as of today: 1.5 lbs lost so far, only 4.5 lbs to go!

ohioraven on 08/16/2015:
You seem pretty happy to me. Maybe you can carry the happiness over for another month.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 08/16/2015:
yes, I like that goal :) And it's very possible considering that the end of this month my boss goes on vaca....and then September i'll have a bunch of days off (September will be the easiest month I have until March!)...so yes, I like your idea!


grannyannie on 08/16/2015:
Have a healthy Sunday!


thinkpositive on 08/16/2015:
Have fun at the concert. I hope your friend who cancelled had a good excuse. Nice of you to invite someone who will really appreciate the experience.


puddles on 08/17/2015:
Hope you enjoyed the concert and keep happy the alternative is not fun.

At beach for the day! Kombucha and a mint 100...., small banana 100. 200...

2 orange peppers 100, turkey jerky 150, cucumber 50, chips 150, Bai drink... 650...

push pop 70, coconut water 90. gonna just say 150.

total so far: 800.

dinner Lots of mostly veggies, in sauce, 400? and a chocolate collagen protein bar. 230.

total around 1400. excellent.

Actually more like 1500 - fruit later on.

No real exercising, mostly relaxing on beach. No extra walking besides getting to my spot on the beach. I did good.  Ankle bothers me yes, but, I am starting to see it as more of a mental thing that I need to get over it and move forward again.  This week I will be focusing on being stronger and actually ignoring my ankle as I look to enjoy a concert tomorrow night as well as Thursday night.

Sunday: gym followed by a concert at the beach later on.  I'll be picking up a friend from another part of Queens and taking her to Long Island with me to meet a couple other friends for a concert. I'll get home late, around midnight. Looking to sleep in on Monday...

Monday: taking this day off from work. Sleeping in and doing laundry. Only real plans are to actually do my laundry, go to physical therapy, and meet my dad for dinner. I also need to return a bumper bully bc it doesn't fit my car!...yeah....but I may wait to do it until Friday...gonna look into seeing if I can return it...

Tuesday- work, followed by gym.

Wednesday- work, followed by PT

Thursday - work till 2pm and hopefully leaving early for a concert in the city.

Friday - day off, not sure, was hoping to meet up with my crush for happy hour but now this looks dismal...hopefully things will change but totally not sure.... :/ If I don't meet up with my guy friend, i'll sleep in, return the bumper bully...and...we'll see. maybe beach. just not sure about Friday...

That's the plan for my week. It's a little too busy, but, we'll see.

 

Progress as of today: 1.5 lbs lost so far, only 4.5 lbs to go!

1200 after lunch and looking forward to going to the gym after work today!

1650 before gym. perfect combo of stuff because I didn't need a snack during my workout...was raisins, followed half hour later by 2 plums (smallish) and a natural bar of mostly nuts (very low sugar).

after gym: had like a serving and a half of chips and a chocolate Quest protein bar. love them, to me they are like brownies lol. 400 or so here.

total today: around 2050, very good.

and a good workout at the gym. fast.

now I can relax and shower and read.

all in all, looking back on this week from Sunday, I did a decent job and i'm proud of myself.  My digestion has been overall pretty good this week. No crazy problems like last week. I made better choices, ate in my calorie range, especially from Tuesday on.   So i'm happy going into the weekend. And happy to get some sleep and relaxing reading done.

Progress as of today: 1.5 lbs lost so far, only 4.5 lbs to go!

Weight: 124.5

8am Breakfast before gym: 2 plums 100, beef jerky 150, chips 230 = 480.

it's that time of the month and having slight cramps in my upper thigh. trying to get to the gym in the AM for a strong session before coming home to get ready for a pool party in the afternoon around one hour away on LI (without traffic...) may turn into more like 1.5hrs going there. so that's why it makes sense to go to the gym now and not after the party, at 6pm tonight. party starts around 1-2.

ate a bit of party food. but not overboard. calories around 2200. i'm glad yesterday was a lower calorie because I've been feeling like i'm gaining weight the past couple weeks...looking to have another low cal day next Monday when I take the day off. I may even aim for 1200 (that's if I can do an intermittent fast and eat sparingly in the AM that day...we will see, even 1500 would be good for that Monday.)
