Heavy housework. No workouts.

I knew it was a mistake to think I could ration nuts and dark chocolate. When they are gone, that’s it. Only the popcorn for snacks.

On the scale Dec 1st to find out what damage I have done.

 weights are later this evening, upper body no leg strength.

glad i got a walk in during the morning, an hour, which is a lot for me and my legs certainly feel it, because i do not do hardcore cardio and i should do more, moderately increasing what i do. this was good. it was also very warm, just over 60F, and sunny. DONE


 PMP STUDY GUIDE: until end of November (Execute, Monitor & Control!) <---- haha, those are PM terms.

Progress as of today: 2 lbs lost so far, only 1 lbs to go!

grannyannie on 11/27/2020:
I love banana bread!!!!


Jacky82020 on 11/27/2020:
Just returned from small local Italian market that has good prices on boneless chicken breasts/thighs . Use to make dog food. They had the most wonderful day old banana cake reduced to $1.99. Looked like banana bread. Took Herculean strength to resist!


grannyannie on 11/27/2020:
I've only made banana walnut bread once in my life. Tons of oil. It was soooooooo good.

Horn_of_plenty on 11/27/2020:
yeah, i do think banana bread is rather far from healthy. the one my sister makes is quite rich and heavy!


Jacky82020 on 11/27/2020:
Used to make them, but not for ages. I’ve given up many foods over the years, too many calories and poor nutrition. But I loved it!


Maria7 on 11/27/2020:
Banana bread sounds good!

Horn_of_plenty on 11/27/2020:
do you make it?


Jacky82020 on 11/27/2020:
Are you feeling better today, HOP?

Horn_of_plenty on 11/27/2020:
you're right, banana bread seems like a pretty bulky, rich dessert. i agree.

yeah, my stomach was still slightly weird - maybe it's all the candy i've been eating.

i do feel better. somehow i have a sore throat that developed over the course of today!

thanks for asking!!!

i am just not in the mindset to spend too much time on here for now...too many other things i am thinking about!!! <3

by the way, I think InnerP forgot to mention you, the "newbie," in her thank you's on her entry today... so i want to tell you that you are a great addition here. we are thankful for your contributions!


Jacky82020 on 11/27/2020:
Thanks, HOP. The PM test should be your top priority. Who’d want to waste the money taking it twice? But no real option if it gets to that.

Horn_of_plenty on 11/27/2020:
It really is a disgrace how expensive it is!!!! LOL. thanks Jacky!

(CR & IF & Exercise)
Weight: 117.6

Same old boring dinner: soybeans and cooked slaw.   Annoyed I couldn't get a slot at Walmart pickup today & have to wait until 9AM tomorrow.   Lots of cabbage, garlic & onions.

 

Couldn't get a glucose reading.   Tried 3X.   Not enough blood twice and on the third failed to correctly insert test strip.   Now know how to do it, but not up to a 4th prick.  Maybe later.  Need to press the lancet device more firmly into the side of my finger to get a decent sample.


My live long and well guru, James Clement, is big on macadamia nuts, as I probably mentioned. Took a second look.   He recommends 4 oz a day.   They average $20/pd.   Or better put $20 is the best price.  Considered ordering until I saw over 800 Cals in that 4 oz!  JFC!  No way for me. Seriously doubt Clement does that daily.  Image below is for  1 oz.

He's also big on monitoring bio markers such as glucose among numerous others.  Bought the Reli system at Walmart.   Had the best reviews.   Seems insurance pays for far more expensive systems, but can limit test strips etc.  Many ppl saying Reli was the best backup.   Took weeks to summon up courage to prick.   Bought the little auto-lancet device.  Painless, but got the most minuscule bead of blood out.  Failed, no reading.  Trouble shooting and will get it to work.   He says early AM (before breakfast) reading of 85-90 is ideal.   Up to 115 after a meal good.   I was 99 at the last lab test in July and am very curious to see if better diet and weight loss since then has improved my glucose level.

Progress as of today: 16.4 lbs lost so far, only 7.6 lbs to go!

grannyannie on 11/27/2020:
That is high calories for nuts!

Cashews, peanuts and almonds are 60 calories per 10g. About 7 almonds = 10g. Good for you but very high calorie.

Jacky82020 on 11/27/2020:
Yes, they are all BIG in calories and a source of healthy fat/protein. Macadamia nuts are the fattiest and most expensive. Guess I’ll be sticking with my peanut butter. 190 Cals in 2 tablespoons. Always liked PB. Didn’t care for the cashew and almond butter. Similar nutritional value to PB


Maria7 on 11/27/2020:
I love nuts, too!

Jacky82020 on 11/27/2020:
Me too! Always have!


Horn_of_plenty on 11/27/2020:
keep us VERY updated on what you learn thru glucose monitoring. i have a feeling that when i'm even "older," i may have to monitor that in myself. i tend to get lots of "lows" where i get shaky if i do not have carbs...you ever get that?

also, i find it hard to eat nuts because of their calories, too. However, i got in the good habit of eating them at work, before going home, or mid-morning. it was a healthy habit. just 100 calories or 200 calories worth...

now that i think about it, i could have kept a jar of pb at work, too! i do prefer pb to actual nuts also. :) it's good stuff.


Jacky82020 on 11/27/2020:
Will let you know how glucose monitoring goes tomorrow. Pretty sure I’ll get it right

The Aerogarden hubby has restarted. The seeds came today. So in a few days the light will be turned on. North facing window.

The raspberry liqueur sounds Devine! Maybe if I’m a good girl Santa will bring me some.

grannyannie on 11/27/2020:
I get the Edinburgh raspberry gin liqueur. Quite sweet. I add tonic to it.


Jacky82020 on 11/27/2020:
Wonderful! Saw the Scottish Deerhound won best in show at the National Dog show. Never heard of the breed. Found her rather homely, resembled a greyhound. Never liked those dogs with long pointy muzzles, the lean and hungry look. Mine tend to be the short muzzled dogs: boxers, bulldogs, bull mastiffs, & various mutts

grannyannie on 11/27/2020:
I prefer Golden Retrievers and Labradors. We can't have dogs because of the amount of time we normally travel.


Horn_of_plenty on 11/27/2020:
Yes those liquors are so sweet...i usually steer away lol..but lately a lot of my drinks that are alcoholic are on the sweet side.

like jacky says above, i love bull mastiffs too! such good dogs.

what is hubby going to grow? edible plants?

grannyannie on 11/27/2020:
Some of the gin liqueurs aren't as sweet as the raspberry. Lots of different flavours now and gin has become a huge business in Scotland in the last few years.

Hubby would never grow anything non-edible in the house -only outside. The kit he bought has coriander, basil, Thai basil, Thyme, dill and parsley. He always cooks with fresh herbs and spices.


Jacky82020 on 11/27/2020:
Awesome he grows all that stuff!


Maria7 on 11/27/2020:
Nice garden. What have you planted in it?

grannyannie on 11/27/2020:
coriander, basil, thai basil, thyme, dill and parsley

Wednesday

left work at noon

made two pies - pumpkin and chocolate pecan

went to get the girl - she talked a lot about her family and drama - feel so sad for her at times.

DH was home at 5:00

Dinner was hamburger with BBQ sauce, wrapped in a canned biscuit with a little cheese, broccoli and salad - different

Dessert - I had a piece of the chocolate pecan pie - I think this was the best pie I have ever made in my life (cut it in half along with the pumpkin and sent the halves home with the girl)

DH and I went on a walk around the neighbor hood.

Thursday

DH and I went on a walk in the drizzle/misty rain

Got home and raked leaves that had blown in our yard from the wind event from a week ago - we had so many leaves in our yard from the neighborhood - yard looks so much better now.

cooked baked chicken with dressing, cranberry sauce, green beans for Thanksgiving and then ate a piece of chocolate pecan pie and a piece of pumkin pie

DH and I went on another walk to Indian Hollow - it was cloudy but mild and it looks ugly there

When we got home - ate left overs baked chicken, dressing, cranberry sauce and instead of pie had the yeast rolls that we finished thawing and rising on the stove.

Lots of carbs this day and went over calories by about 450...so so glad I sent the rest of the pies home with the girl or else I'm sure we would have finished them off.

Friday - no Black Friday shopping for me - I am not going out with the population.

B: vanilla iced latte

L: TBD - grilled chicken, tomatoe and cucumber salad

D: TBD - maybe Chipolte - DH is going to get the girl for the weekend.

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and found something in life to be thankful for.

I am thankful for all of you, though I don't comment often I read your entries and get help from each of them in someway!

HOP - so consistent and admirable with all your studying and classes while be unemployed, your constant tips and motivation inspire me daily.

Donkey - so graceful while keeping harmonious conditions at work and home while dealing with challenges in both places trying to keep everyone happy- even sick kitty.

Legs - so innovative and determine to achieve your goals - even overcoming your ankle injury - so relentless!

Grannyannie - routing for everyone - your continuous support is phenominal

Bear - your tips and tricks and zeal for life, so, so motivating

Maria - your prayers and thoughtfulness

Happy - great things never come from comfort zones - I appreciate your hard work getting through every day life!

Thank you each and everyone!

 

Progress as of today: 41.5 lbs lost so far, only 86.4 lbs to go!

grannyannie on 11/27/2020:
It's okay to eat forbidden foods on Thanksgiving! Sounds yum and the burger sounded interesting.

Will be great when the girl is with you full time.

Lovely photo. Very peaceful.


Maria7 on 11/27/2020:
Beautiful photo of walking path.


Horn_of_plenty on 11/27/2020:
Hi InnerP! That was really sweet of you to write something specific to everyone here and why you value us, your friends, at DD! I found it so specific and kind to all of us. Thanks for making me feel good, too!

I have never even heard of a chocolate pecan pie, can't see how it could be anything but great!

that really is a beautiful path. i like how you can see all around the path because there are no leaves left on the trees and because they are so tall! I'd love to walk there!

Have a wonderful, Holiday weekend. You deserve it, too, for all you do! :) We love having you here, too, no doubt!

Weird how some gifs animate here and others don't Two rice cookers on now making black garlic & waiting for temperature to equilibrate on another crockpot.   Other one got too hot (160).   The black garlic averages $30 a pound & I can buy the fresh for $3/pd. Very faint pleasant aroma in kitchen near the pots. Don't know why some are complaining the stench is so ghastly they use the garage.   Concluding some posters never actually made black garlic.

Added black tea and granulated sugar to pickup order. Only ingredients needed for the kombucha recipe. I have other teas and brown sugar here, no black or granulated.   Not understanding why the recipes for making kombucha from a bottle are multi-stepped .    Say to start with 4 oz of the bottled tea, 8 oz water and some sugar and let ferment for maybe 10 days.   Then add more of the same & ket ferment longer, until one gets up to a gallon.  Don't see why I can't pour the entire bottle into a gallon of tea.   May do just that.   Nothing to lose other than the $3 GT tea.

Progress as of today: 16.4 lbs lost so far, only 7.6 lbs to go!

Horn_of_plenty on 11/26/2020:
are you also cooking thanksgiving or ordering food!? with all your cookers taken up!

keep ME updated on making your kombucha !!!?

Jacky82020 on 11/26/2020:
No, we aren’t really doing thanksgiving. No one is allowed in the house & we won’t enter others. Will microwave chicken breasts with garlic & bake potatoes. And stir fry the Normandy blend frozen veggies No desserts for me! The husband will pig out on a Boston cream pie he bought.

Hope you are having a good day.

Good luck with your interview!! The more the better! New Guy was doing working in this area before he came to our firm, both commercial and residential evictions.

Otherwise, I wish you a productive studying day!

Horn_of_plenty on 11/25/2020:
the interview went very well...i was prepared for it and had good things to say. it was the most "conversational" interview i have ever had to date...where it was totally more fluid on both ends with good things and thoughts on both sides...

i'll keep you updated, if i hear anything...

and i look forward to a walk now, before i study anymore...maybe drive myself to the park!


grannyannie on 11/25/2020:
Good luck on the phone interview!

You are a pumpkin pie fanatic! :)

Horn_of_plenty on 11/25/2020:
now i get to experiment with a no sugar added recipe...instead of condensed milk, i'm using evaporated milk with monk fruit.

thank you for the good luck.

Pumpkin is good for you! And without sugar, even better.

Horn_of_plenty on 11/25/2020:

 Dinner, yet more soy beans and cooked slaw.   Liking fried sliced up whole cabbage better and won't be buying the raw slaw anymore.   plan to fry the cabbage with onions.

We never know what we will like to eat unless we try new things. Yesterday, I tried making a grilled cheese sw with different ingredients...ugh...didn't work out. I had used mayonaise coating the outsides of the sw instead of margerine to cook the sw in, among other ingredients I put inside the cheese sw. Could have been a really good sw had I stuck when the way I usually cook one. SMILE!

  For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16 

 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.  2 Chronicles 7:14

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.  1 John 1:9

 Hello to you...

  Wishing you all a Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow! 

153 today...So okay with that.  Actually, thankful to the Lord for being alive.  Lots of people take things for granted but we shouldn't.  We think we will be happy if things are a certain way instead of thanking God for each and every day.

Hope you are having a good day.

Hi Maria. Nice to see you. xx

Maria7 on 11/26/2020:
Always nice to see you, too, Annie.


Horn_of_plenty on 11/25/2020:
You are right, so, let us be thankful for all the little things that we usually overlook this Thanksgiving!

Maria7 on 11/26/2020:
Amen!

Weight: 296.4

On the way home from the office I stopped at a lunch box deli and got DH and I a sandwich for lunch.

I had a roast beef, turkey, bacon sandwich, DH had a Reuban. It was different for a change.

D: left over teriaki chicken and rice

S: chocolate covered pretzels

I was over on calories today (almost 400) but the pretzels and sandwich was very good.

Took the doggos out about 4:00 we got grappled on. Got halfway around the block - grapple - a mix between sleet/snow/hail. It actually stung my face when I got hit.

Today looks nasty too, but will try to get the dogs walked.

Working till noon and then have a long weekend with tomorrow and Friday off.

I think I get the girl this afternoon.

DH working the first shift today and should be home by 5:00.

Hope you all have a great Thanksgiving!

grannyannie on 11/25/2020:
Sandwich sounds good. Any progress on custody hearing?

innerpeace on 11/25/2020:
Not really. Lawyer said he wanted to question exwife under oath. Her lawyer said she wasn't opposed to the girl coming to live here but just wanted the money DH owed her and she didn't want to pay child support. DH says he doesn't owe her any money and the Child Support Enforcement Agency said he doesn't owe her money so we don't know what she's talking about. Basically she wants to sell the girl, I guess. The new court date will be in the new year, so it isn't something that will happen quickly. I was hoping, but no such luck.


Jacky82020 on 11/25/2020:
Sandwich does indeed sound fantastic. I want one!


grannyannie on 11/25/2020:
The ex sounds like my ex DIL. Selfish!


Donkey on 11/25/2020:
You're doing a wonderful job with your weigh-ins!

These court things never go as quickly as we'd like. Be prepared for a couple of continuances.

innerpeace on 11/25/2020:
Well hopefully not too many, she will be 16 next month, you would think she would have more say so about where she wants to live. She knows right from wrong. If it goes much longer, I will stop it all and she can wait two years and do whatever she wants.


legcramps on 11/25/2020:
Ugh. Court situation does not sound easy or quick.


grannyannie on 11/25/2020:
A 15 year old is plenty old enough to choose which parent she wants to live with.


Horn_of_plenty on 11/25/2020:
regarding your entry yesterday, i do agree it's better to forgive than be part of an endless bitter argument (like my own parents love to do! LOL - they argue CONSTANTLY)

yeah, that sandwich, with the addition of the bacon, would hit the spot! glad you enjoyed it!

sorry you got hit in the face with the storm....ummm, i'm picturing it right now...you do not look to happy...!

keep staying strong! very proud of you on the eating / diet end!


Maria7 on 11/26/2020:
Happy Thanksgiving. I hope you and your Family have a good day and enjoy your weekend.

(Healthy eating, exercise)
Weight: 0.0

7:30am picked up a few groceries at the supermarket. Yesterday I got a kitchen cupboard cleaned out and reorganized, and cleaned off our very long & wide windowsill in the kitchen. Needed to make room for a herb garden with lights that hubby wants to start again.

Rain earlier this morning but sunny now. About 50 degrees. I really need to get on my bike and go for a least a short ride. I don't want to fear getting back on it in spring. 

Menu:

Total: 1094

Workout: 

Floor routines:

Jacky82020 on 11/25/2020:
Herbs on the window sill sound wonderful. Interesting article in yesterday’ s paper re micro gardening or whatever they called it, Small edible greens grown indoors. Maybe you saw it? Didn’t you say you get the NYT & WaPo? Can’t recall which paper.

grannyannie on 11/25/2020:
Yes, I get both papers online. Didn't see the articles though. I'll look for it.

grannyannie on 11/25/2020:
We traded our pizza maker for stepdaughter's micro herb garden thingy. Tried it once but then went away to Thailand for 3 months and just turned it off. But we've got lots of time for it now. Hubby uses all kinds of herbs and spices in his cooking.


Jacky82020 on 11/25/2020:
Sounds fun! Also article in one of those papers re the more easily transmissible mutation of covid called 614G. Mentions Thailand has done an excellent job controlling the virus, both variants. One way is banning foreigners, they said.

grannyannie on 11/25/2020:
Hubby watches all these very detailed youtube videos about Covid and how they developed the vaccine etc.

Yes, Thailand locked their borders just like New Zealand. Tourists are only allowed into Thailand now if they are from countries that have low numbers of cases. And when you arrive you have to stay in a government approved hotel and can't leave the room for 2 weeks. You get some kind of wristband that says you are negative before allowed in public. Only for those who will stay at least 90 days.

grannyannie on 11/25/2020:
I found the article on 614G. NY Times.


Jacky82020 on 11/25/2020:
Thailand was smart along with most nations Thanks to Trump the US wasn’t and people needlessly died. How I hate that unfit narcissist!

grannyannie on 11/25/2020:
Trump was the worst. He knew Feb 7th it was deadly yet pretended it was no big deal. He is guilty of killing my son. I never knew I could feel such hate for anyone.

Scotland has a good leader and handled things right (except pubs opening too soon), but England has a total idiot.

grannyannie on 11/25/2020:
Asian countries understand viruses and willingly put on a mask. I was in Saigon Feb 1st and almost everyone had a mask on.


Donkey on 11/25/2020:
An herb garden sounds like an excellent project to have during the winter. Something very encouraging about green growing things in one's abode. I love visiting my plant room.

grannyannie on 11/25/2020:
I often buy a basil plant and put it in the window sill and they last forever. Tried coriander which hubby uses a lot but the plants just don't last. Gave up and I buy packets of fresh. Hubby has ordered seeds and will set it back up when they arrive.


legcramps on 11/25/2020:
I would love to have a little herb garden, but I have exactly ONE south-facing window and it's right above my kitchen sink. There's a ledge, but not much of one and also - winter air is bound to affect anything that sits on the windowsill. What kind of lights will you be putting up? Interested!

grannyannie on 11/25/2020:
It's an Aerogarden. Basil, thai basil, coriander, and some others. It's all one unit with lights included. Our kitchen window is south facing so not a ton of light. Our sill is very wide and we have no problem with cold air - newish windows and great heating system. I'll take a photo of it when it's set up.


Horn_of_plenty on 11/25/2020:
love how you are concentrating on stretches....it's important to stay flexible...i tend to remember then sometimes...but never too far away from my thoughts...

i have to clean windowsills...the dust has accumulated!

grannyannie on 11/25/2020:
I have spells where I get lazy with stretches, but with the injury(s) I've been very good about stretching.

Our windowsills are all washable. The kitchen one is very hard to clean as I have to stretch to reach it. But I finally managed. I keep 2 antique coffee grinders, a lidless sugar bowl that was my mom's, a souvenir from Morocco and also the rice cooker.


Jacky82020 on 11/25/2020:
Same here, my hatred for Trump is beyond any I have even felt in my life. Watch him go on to prosper and make a fortune now. He’s already soliciting donations for lawsuits and a 2024 run. Much of this going into his own pocket. Criminal!

grannyannie on 11/25/2020:
I take out all my anger at him and others on Twitter. In fact just got out of Twitter jail, again.


Jacky82020 on 11/25/2020:
Legs, you can get grow lights sent directly from China for much less than purchasing them here and put them in any kind of lamp. Amazon and eBay have them.

grannyannie on 11/25/2020:
The Aerogarden was purchased on Amazon.


legcramps on 11/25/2020:
Cool, thanks! I might have to look into that.

(CR & IF & Exercise)
Weight: 117.6

 

 

Same dinner at 5PM: soy beans and cabbage. Ok, had a few bites of meatloaf.   One of the dogs is quite elderly and has decided he wants only my homemade meatloaf, so I'm making a really huge  one pretty much every other day.   He is a big boy, maybe 125 pds. Can't resist a few bites when it comes out of the microwave.   Difficult as well to avoid snacking on the parrots' pistachios which is their evening treat.   Avoided that today by giving them nuts after I had dinner when I was full, instead of later.

 

 

Finished off my small jar of black garlic last nite.   Won't buy more, am determined to make my own,  Ordered the better rice cooker from Amazon, will arrive tomorrow.   Added 3 (1.5 pds) garlic bulbs to my pickup list.   Searched for cheaper bulk sacks of garlic and nothing to be found.   Many sellers wanted up to $15 a pound!  Don't get it!   supposedly easy to grow.

soybbeans and cooked cabbage have become my dinner staple, the first meal of the day which I eat between 4 & 5.   Filling until maybe 9, then  I have 2  hi fiber English muffins with mustard & whatever & the other with nut butter & honey.

HOP, looked at kombucha.  Added a bottle to my pickup list.   This brand had more appealing flavors than GT.   Do you like kombucha because of health benefits or for the flavor?

Progress as of today: 16.4 lbs lost so far, only 7.6 lbs to go!

grannyannie on 11/24/2020:
Looks like a nice rice cooker. Mine has only 2 options - cook or warm.

Jacky82020 on 11/24/2020:
Those are the most important ones!


horn_of_plenty on 11/24/2020:
Well at least a few bites of meatloaf / cashews add a very healthy element to your diet !

I sometimes do buy the kombucha you have a photo of above. They add some stevia to that brand. Yes, the flavors are nice - I like the pineapple peach and cherry also ...also a couple others. The greens flavor is surprisingly good / sweet. Yes, this brand tastes good

But beware, there is caffeine in this brand, more than the others, so I usually have to be more careful when drinking it. And not have it in combo with coffee also. Sometimes it makes me jittery. I used to drink it more but bought it the other day when the store didn’t have the brand I prefer that you bought last time....

I like kombucha bc it’s carbonated and filling. I like that it has probiotics. I love that it is low calorie and only drink flavors that appeal to me. I love it most for being low calorie and filling and I can relax and drink it for awhile and it’s satisfying for that long while - it helps me cut calories

Jacky82020 on 11/25/2020:
Thanks for the info, especially the caffeine warning .Didn’t know.


Donkey on 11/25/2020:
Back down to 117! Yay!

I tried a coffee flavored kombucha. Did not care for it. I've heard the fruit flavors are better, but never tried again.

Jacky82020 on 11/25/2020:
I am curious about kombucha.

Read about this really fat guy (400+ pds) who did a 200 cal a day kombucha fast. Wanted to go 30 days, but broke done around day 23 . Lost a huge amount. Takes a really large person to shed pounds like he did. My doc is telling me to limit my weight loss to 2 pds a week. Impossible! Best I can do is 1 a week and not even every week at that.


Horn_of_plenty on 11/25/2020:
yeah, i like fruit flavors best.

i cannot do the strong ginger flavors or root flavors.

Jacky82020 on 11/25/2020:
I’ll have to take a second look, but appeared most Walmart GT’s were ginger flavors. That’s why I went with the other brand. Do love diet ginger ale.


Horn_of_plenty on 11/25/2020:
perhaps, since you like a lot of strong flavors, you'll like the ginger one. i just can't do it...it tastes so strong to me.

You mean a two tone look? What do the call that, am ombré?

Horn_of_plenty on 11/23/2020:
no, no...not at all! LOL...that would be nice, but my days of experimenting with cool 'dos are DONE! if i were working / higher salaried, no problem! but since that is not the case:

i have brown hair and most cheaper but well-known dyes work just fine on my hair. i do it at home, just started like half a year ago with the dying process, because i have a few grays and i want to be good at dying it at home bc i will save tons of money this way...especially when i really need to dye my hair with more grays...i'm just getting used to dying it now...

awhile back, 2-3 years ago, i was experimenting and getting all kinds of highlights and nice things done to my short brown hair. it all looked good, but needs too much upkeep for me. i don't really enjoy having to be high-maintenance.

and now that i'm unemployed, it'd make no sense to get an ombre or anything...and i'm not skilled enough to do it at home! plus my hair is too short for that...it's not even down to my shoulders yet!


Jacky82020 on 11/23/2020:
Oh, come on, you’ll look cool running off to interviews in pink and platinum hair! L’Oréal works for me! Quite often they have $5 off coupons if you buy 2 I am so cheap! It’s a family tradition.

Horn_of_plenty on 11/23/2020:
that's a good coupon deal, there...most recently i found a product on Amazon (from a well known hair color company), that if i sign up for subscribe and save, it comes to less than $5 per package of dye...i haven't tried it yet, it's a brown...but maybe has a tinge of red in it. should be fine...i hope for it to be my go-to color...but first i have a package that i saved and didn't use all the coloring from to still use up!

grannyannie on 11/24/2020:
I quit dyeing my hair about 5 or 6 years ago. So I'm mostly grey and I'm fine with it. I always did it myself except for twice when I had highlights done at a salon. So I feel a bit sorry for the women who only had theirs done a salons and are hating their grey roots! Like my sister.


legcramps on 11/24/2020:
I stopped dyeing my hair a couple years ago, simply out of laziness. I really hate the upkeep, am not a high-maintenance person at all. Shaving is about all I can muster the motivation to do LOL.

horn_of_plenty on 11/24/2020:
I may Turn into a non dyer in the future but I’m not there yet ! In your photos, I don’t see gray hair


grannyannie on 11/24/2020:
We don't have Amazon trucks here. It all comes from the post office or independent delivery trucks. And we live where we are a bit isolated shopping wise so we buy a LOT from Amazon, especially now.

horn_of_plenty on 11/24/2020:
Wowwww. You should see all the amazon trucks and vans! All day, everywhere


grannyannie on 11/25/2020:
My granddaughters gets gifts from me by Amazon truck. And my sister sees them all the time.


legcramps on 11/25/2020:
I don't have much grey yet, i'll admit. But if history and genetics play a part, my grey will grow in patches on my head which may look a little strange. Still, I don't know how much i'll care when the day comes.

Weight: 296.4

Doing better today. It is better to forgive and begin another day than to be mad for long periods of time. I think I got my point across!

DH cleaned off the counter tops and wanted a freaking gold star medal. Hello I do it every freaking day! I don't take pictures and brag about it. Anyway, he was hurt that I didn't recognize the fact that he did this! It's the little things I guess. I will make it a point to say thank you.

Oh I scrubbed three bathrooms and vacuumed the second floor of the house and dusted everything and wash clothes EVERY weekend...but hey, I just do this because I don't want to live in a pig sty! YOU ARE WELCOME!  Point is, I never get a thank you...I don't take pictures and say...look what I did today!

Monday after work I took the doggos out - haven't been walking as far. It was very cold.

D: teriaki chicken, 1/2 cup fried rice, 1/2 cup low mein noodles

S: 7 caramel, vanilla, pumpkin, cinammon flavored pretzels (120 calories) I ate these about 8:00 p.m. so I was expecting blood sugar to be high.

Blood sugar this a.m. 122

B: granola, vanilla yogurt, french vanilla iced coffee

L: left over chicken

D: TBD - I have ground beef thawing out

Working in the office today - got my laptap configured, where I may never have to come into the office again!

It is a change of pace though!

Have a great Tuesday! IP

Progress as of today: 41.5 lbs lost so far, only 86.4 lbs to go!

Glad you've calmed down. Anger sucks out your energy.

Enjoy your day.


Donkey on 11/25/2020:
Annie is right; anger consumed a lot of energy. It's hard to do, but sometimes it's better for the angry person to just let it go and move on.

I don't remember when I weighed myself last; I think it was a few weeks ago. Anyways I lost another three pounds, so it seems to be levelling off now which is okay with me. A few more pounds would be great, but I won't bet the farm on it.

So the last few weeks have been rough on my foot. I've basically returned to my regularly scheduled fitness level, albeit excepting a few things that I still cannot/should not do. It may have been too much too soon, as i've been experiencing a bit of pain throughout the areas of my previously broken ankle.

My conondrum now may seem quite silly to you: Every part of my brain says "scale back on the exercise" and yet I can't do it.

I can't, for so many reasons; because it's the only thing right now that I have that is a distraction from having to live in a world where so much chaos and aggression exists. I can't because when I don't, I look for other ways to fill my time and walking back and forth to the fridge is one of them. Alcohol is another. I can't because I feel so much anxiety and worry and self-doubt - and the part of the day when I exercise is the ONE part of my day where I don't have to feel any particular way about myself, where complete exhaustion is preferable over EVERYTHING else that could or has happened that day.

So there you have it. I should. But I can't.

To counter-balance the above rant, let me praise my light therapy box once more. I need to get more sleep than I am, but even through all the sleepless parts of my nights, through all the anxieties of the day, I am still getting up in the morning feeling like I can get through it. I am still waking up READY. Since I have been using the light box, i've had a grand total of 2 headaches, that's it! This morning because I went to sleep very late I thought I would snooze once, but within minutes I was awake and ready to get out of bed after the first alarm. It is still BLOWING MY MIND LOL.

Jacky82020 on 11/24/2020:
Oh, I know exactly how you feel about not letting up on exercising. I am in the same position with my knee. Can’t get in to see the doc until 12/7 and I remain 99% confident he will say nothing to be done other than rest it. Been jumping on the exercise bike the minute I get up (ok, bit of an exaggeration. I pee, weigh myself & grab coffee) for many years and it seems really weird laying back down in bed with my little dog boys. Not going near the treadmill etc.


grannyannie on 11/24/2020:
I know how you feel too. I feel so much better when I consistently work out. I had the shoulder problem for a long time and couldn't do upper body stuff for ages. Hated it!

But you don't want permanent damage either.

The light box sounds great!


Horn_of_plenty on 11/25/2020:
It is SO HARD to do the right thing when exercise is what makes you, YOU!

i will give the one tip i think could help: to take part in an app for meditation. also, i was using an app that actually tells bedtime (or anytime) stories. you learn a little from them. some were silly but most i'd learn a word or two...or i'd learn more about a subject.

i'd try to take time listening to stories.

also, can you do the "arm cardio" - that machine i told you about.


Donkey on 11/25/2020:
I completely understand the exercise struggle. I have no words of advice or wisdom. But I do know that you DON'T want to re-injure yourself, so I guess make that the most important thought in the forefront. (?)


Maria7 on 11/26/2020:
Happy Thanksgiving and congrats on your new lower number! Have a good day.

Picking up shopping this morning. No workout. Dropping off some of my jigsaw puzzles for a friend and her kids. Then picking up my repeat prescription (antihistamines) from my doctor's office.

Will get on the scale again Dec 1st. I gained during election celebrations, but it will come back off.

Husband and I should be getting the vaccine here the end of January or February. Planning trips for summer.

wait what!? vaccine already! here in US, i haven't heard of anything ready, though still in testing...

keep me updated on that!

also, thanks for tricking us with your weight chart! lol....i'm sure you are on a good roll now, considering your meals! :)

yesterday, i had veggies in curry sauce and added in my own, not fried, tofu. SO GOOD. from an excellent thai restaurant, was red curry.

Yes, vaccine in the US. I think within the next couple of months they will start with healthcare workers then the vulnerable, then the elderly, etc.

Yes, weight will be going down now after all that pigging out and beer! My 162 was before the election.

Yum, nice curry. Love tofu in curries.

jigsaw puzzles are fun; I go through phases with them. Recently, I downloaded an app to my iPad so I can do jigsaw puzzles on my iPad. It's not the same as the real thing, but it's pretty close!

grannyannie on 11/24/2020:
I had been doing them on my laptop but not the same at all. I'm on a puzzle break right now after doing 16!

Do you know what vaccine you’re getting, Annie? Think the first US ones will be rolled out in a few weeks. I was shocked to see a very high percentage of medical professionals are saying no right now due lack of peer reviewed studies in the medical journals. Hoping the studies are published soon! So far it’s only been company press releases. I am really pissed off at myself for selling my Moderna stock prematurely. Did make a profit, but could have made a lot more.

grannyannie on 11/24/2020:
Scottish govt says it could be any of them. 100 million doses - Oxford University/AstraZeneca vaccine 60 million doses - Novavax vaccine 60 million doses - Valneva vaccine 60 million doses - GSK/Sanofi Pasteur vaccine 40 million doses - BioNTech/Pfizer vaccine 30 million doses - Janssen vaccine 5 million doses - Moderna vaccine

No, you shouldn't have sold Moderna!

grannyannie on 11/24/2020:
The population of Scotland is only 5 million, but the entire UK is 60 million.


Jacky82020 on 11/24/2020:
Sounds like all will be available. That’s great!

Yep, should have doubled down on Moderna instead of selling. Heavily invested in Inovia and they are behind, Here’s hoping!
