 I was not able to write this morning because my phone was out of order.  I usually text while I'm bike riding,  as I am now. I did weights this morning.  I'll do crunches and wall push-ups tonight. 

Eating is still my downfall.  Work is so busy,  I found myself picking at the coffee cake,  to sooth my anxiety with sugar and carbs.  NO!! This must STOP.

I've been working from 9a to 6p every day,  with a 30 minute walk.  Today,  the phones were constantly ringing.  Around 3p, I just gave up on the phones, as I struggled to keep the emails in my in box below 20. 

Mistakes Girl is out of town starting tomorrow,  until Monday.  So that's more work,  less help.  My work-life balance is so off kilter. I want my life back!

Some good news though is that I'm rocking the water intake today.  I should be able to get in a gallon by the time I go to bed. That's awesome!

Progress as of today: 42.5 lbs lost so far, only 9 lbs to go!

Horn_of_plenty on 09/03/2020:
what's wrong with a taste of coffee cake, sweet Donkey!?

perhaps when mistakes girl is out, let her work pile up a little bit? you cannot simply do her work on top of yours?

proud of you with water...will write more soon!

A new month with new goals (which I have written down upstairs). Let's see if I can remember them:

  1. Abs work daily - I have a variety of different exercises to do, so that it's not the same think every day, but to be sure that there is something done every day. 
  2. Push-up challenge,  which will alternate modified (girl) push-ups with wall push-ups. 
  3. Meet my water goal every day.  This is one area I've definitely slipped up on. And when the water is short, the problems begin.
  4. Get into the 130's.  Not giving up on that goal. 
  5. Yoga 1x a week,  whether it's on my own,  Zoom, or gym.   Definitely need to make this a regular practice again.

I can tell that work is lighting up ever so slightly.   I welcome this.

Okay, typing this with my phone is not working.  I keep losing the keyboard every time I backspace,  so I'm  done writing for now.

Progress as of today: 42.5 lbs lost so far, only 9 lbs to go!

Jacky82020 on 09/01/2020:
Great goals! Should emulate you,

Donkey on 09/02/2020:
Thank you! :-)


Horn_of_plenty on 09/01/2020:
with the abs, will you give yourself at least 1 or 2 days off (or in case you accidentally skip a day?) - is there room for not doing it or having a case where you don't get it in that you will still feel accomplished/successful?

I'm glad you are doing the push-ups. i think they may be best for sculpting the shoulders. i wish i could get my mom to do this...i did mention it but i DON'T think she's understanding yet how easy it can be to fit this one in...

totally have my support on the 130's. you can do this, no reason why not. you are very close.

have a good day and keep your plan in mind :)

Donkey on 09/02/2020:
Well. the goal is to do it every day, but if I can't then I'm going for the highest percentage. I fi realize that I may miss a bit here or there, but that's not the goal. :-)


Maria7 on 09/01/2020:
That's good that work it lighting up some. You are a very dedicated, hard worker for real. You have real good goals, too.

Donkey on 09/02/2020:
Thank you! This time, the push-ups seem much more difficult. If I have to do wall push-ups, then that's ok, too.


Horn_of_plenty on 09/02/2020:
Totally agree here with Maria, above!


legcramps on 09/02/2020:
Great goals! So what is your plan for the push-up challenge? I would love to do that one with you!

Donkey on 09/02/2020:
3 sets of 20, but if I gave to break it up into sets of 10, then so be it.

Tonight will be wall push-ups, too give my shoulders a bit of a rest and a nice stretch in my back.

 Not much time to post this morning. 

I'm wondering if I should start eating breakfast at home,  earlier,  rather than eating at my desk at work.  I started doing that to delay eating,  but  now I'm not sure it's a good habit.

Working on goals for September.  I will write these down tonight and share with you tomorrow. 

Contacted my yoga teacher from the studio - not the owner but the teacher I had on Thursday nights - to see about continuing with her via Zoom. I know that i can do yoga for free at the gym and on YouTube,  but something in me thinks is a good idea to maintain my connection with this lady,  at least for now. 

Thinking about flying out to Vegas to visit family for Thanksgiving. 

Praying to the Good Lord for a merciful day at work today. 

Progress as of today: 42.5 lbs lost so far, only 9 lbs to go!

coffee&calories on 08/31/2020:
I have also been trying to delay breakfast in the last few months, but not sure it's helped me. When I was working, eating at my desk wasn't that satisfying but I did it as well. You can always play around with it and see if eating at home serves you better :)

Donkey on 09/01/2020:
I might just do that. I've been craving eggs, over easy, and that's not something that's practical to make or eat at work.


bearcountrygg on 08/31/2020:
Maybe 2 snacks in place of breakfast?...One at home and than another at work?

Donkey on 09/01/2020:
Possibly, although I admit I'm guilty of having a few nibbles as I prepare my meals for work. However, I'm wondering if I'd do better with some kind of post workout something after my morning bike ride...


Maria7 on 08/31/2020:
I hope you have a good day at work. Yes, the habits we develop may be beneficial and then again, maybe not. I've had to give up night-time snacking habit. Happy about it, too.

Donkey on 09/01/2020:
Thank you. My main hesitation about adding a nighttime snack is that it could lead to a nighttime food fit. I hate that when it happens.


Horn_of_plenty on 08/31/2020:
well, in your place, i would DEF (my own opinion) eat breakfast at work because i would STILL get hungry earlier if i ate at home and would STILL want to eat when i get to work.

Have a good Monday..keep rocking and rolling!

Donkey on 09/01/2020:
You're probably right about that. In fact, I'm sure that you are.

I did a lot yesterday - it was wonderful!

I worked in my little butterfly garden, cutting down things that weren't productive, tying up big milkweed to posts, so that the plants are supported and upright now, pulled out a lot of weeds, filled up my birdfeeders, trimmed some branches and gathered them up for paring down and bagging.   If I feel so inclined, I can work on cutting and bagging branches today, or I can wait until next weekend, when my yard waste bin is empty again.

My husband has been slow to put things back into the garage, now that our floor is fixed.  We're definitely looking kind of shabby here, so I cleared out some things, so that the neighbors don't complain and we don't get a ticket from the village.  So that was a little bit taken care of there.

This garage project has been such a blessing though.  Not only will it contribute to the resale value of our home, it makes it nicer for us to use/enjoy while we're still here, AND it has given my husband a purpose to keep him busy.  Otherwise, he gets lonely and bored.  So this has been a good thing.


I went to the gym, and I was glad to see, at one point, that there were quite a few more people there in the cardio section.  But by the time I left, I was the only one there.  And the pool was not crowded at all.  Imagine having that whole swimming pool for just your use - maybe 1 or 2 small families in other sections.

My daughter told me yesterday that she will be changing positions at her work place. It's actually a demotion, from supervisor to department manager, but she's been thinking about making this change for a while, and I support her decision for the reasons that she chose to step down.  

What this means for me though is that now she'll be able to workout with me in the workday evenings at the gym, if she's not out with her boyfriend. Husband might start going back to the gym, too...  I have mixed feelings about that, with his health issues.  We'll see.


My husband says that he's going to do a "reset" of his eating, by joining a Whole 30 challenge for September.  He's a big fan of Whole 30, which, if you're not familiar with the program, a diet routine that cuts out foods that can cause issues - kind of like a detox - and then add them back slowly.  There is something he is eating that just triggers a whole bunch of GI problems with him.  We're not sure what it is - if you recall, I've suggested to him on multiple occassions to keep a food diary.  Whole 30 helps him, but then he slides back into old foods, and has problems again.

Anyway, I'm hoping that with him working on himself, that this will motivate me to stay energized this month.  I turned 50 at the end of July, and I feel like August was just a huge blur.  I'm not really taking advantage of my time, because work sucks every last bit of my soul out of me.

Progress as of today: 42.5 lbs lost so far, only 9 lbs to go!

Jacky82020 on 08/30/2020:
Never heard of Whole 30 Will google Sounds good


Horn_of_plenty on 08/30/2020:
nice job in cleaning up and doing some nice work including with the butterfly garden around your place!

is the pool an outdoor or indoor one?

i didn't know your daughter had a bf...or i forgot! how sweet!

hey! you kept your bday year a secret from all of us!!! Happy 50th belated! i hadn't realized (OR FORGOT!) that you are the big 50! wooohoo! haha. you are a healthy 50. think of all the folks that didn't care about their health at 50. thank gosh you do! :)

you write you aren't taking advantage of your time, but you do a lot. just keep making it a priority. you are doing really well this summer with staying active. just keep on, never quit on YOU!


bearcountrygg on 08/30/2020:
I've heard a lot about whole 30....it seems to be very popular. That is the thing about any specific eating plan...we usually seem to fall back into the old habits......i think the only way i could ever do something like that or any really limited diet would be to have NOTHING in the house that wasn't on the diet....BUT...if it really works for him he might just decide it's worth it.

 Before I say anything,  I wanted to share with you something about typos. I've been logging in on my phone,  and that means lots of typos. 

So I guess yesterday's entry had "heart wave" instead of "heat wave" but,  friends,  I tell you,  that's not even the worst of it!  I had accidentally typed  "child cuts" instead of "cold cuts" for dinner!  I'm sure you can imagine my horror at sounding like a cannibal!!!!!


 So weigh-in was not good. Up 2 pounds.  Can't say I'm not disappointed.  Kind of stinks to wake up hungry, because you didn't snack last night, only to find you've gained 2 pounds.  

I guess that's what's September goals are for.  If I'm going to get into the 130's, then I need to do the work to get there!


Doing my best to relax and do things that I want to do or want to get done, but I'm not organized, which is not a great way to start.  I have my laundry outside drying early, and husband is out of the house at the recycling drive. He didn't leave early to get in line, so the line is long.  He'll be gone for a while.

We didn't get the rain that we were supposed to get - sadly - but the temperatures have dropped.  It is very nice and cool outside which is perfect for the yard work that I want to get done.


I'm thinking of doing a push-up challenge again for September.  My arms always look much better at the end of doing that. I'd also like to do some kind of ab challenge.

However, I've been waking up with some awful back pain and sciatica - which usually works its way out during my morning bike ride.  Working on abs sometimes stresses out my lower back.... so not sure how an abs challenge would go.

Also, earlier this month, when I was doing weights consistently, my shoulders got very sore - I think it's the rotator cuff.  So I'm not sure how push-ups would work out either!

I'm thoroughly disgusted with the fat deposits on my inner knees up through the inner thigh.  I can do inner thigh exercises, but I can feel - through the flab - that the muscle is already there.  It's just covered in flab and skin!  Losing weight will help a little, too, but as you can see from my weigh-ins that this hasn't been too good lately!

Ever since I went to my doctor in February (?), I've had this 10 extra pounds that I just can't seem to get rid of, no matter what happens.

Progress as of today: 42.5 lbs lost so far, only 9 lbs to go!

bearcountrygg on 08/29/2020:
The typos have been hilarious.......and I think we can usually figure out what was meant......usually they are just jumbled letters....but this last week...they did have alternate meanings...which made them so funny.....I know why mine have happened...whenever my nails on my left hand get long...it's a problem...( going back to short nails right now)...thanks for the reminder Donkey.

Donkey on 08/30/2020:
I find that I make a lot of typos at work, when my nails get too long. I don't know how those ladies do it with those really long nails.

FYI - I think one of the reason Mistakes Girl makes so many mistakes is because of her long nails. Thing is, she's just not careful enough to go back and check her work.


Jacky82020 on 08/29/2020:
Hey, don’t worry about the typos! Didn’t even notice. I read typoese. Did notice: lick the icon Was that you? LOL

Donkey on 08/30/2020:
Not me (see below), but I did find that to be quite funny :-D


bearcountrygg on 08/29/2020:
Jacky.....I was the one that told you to lick the wrench....meant click!! OMG!!! The last few days have been a comedy of errors.....I should get better now...I cut my nails...LOL


Horn_of_plenty on 08/29/2020:
I'm reading this during a break in my class and I cannot stop laughing !!!! LOL...the typos have been so funny and i have in a way liked them for a fun laugh!

Donkey on 08/30/2020:
I tell you, I was * absolutely horrified* at the "child cuts". Made me think of Hansel and Gretel.


Horn_of_plenty on 08/29/2020:
try not to let the weight gain get to you...just keep striving to be your best...don't give up.

why do you say you aren't organized? you usually are! your laundry is out there, everything sounds good! be kind to yourself :) xoxo

i've had some kind of ongoing right hip pain, like i pulled something, it's been recovering for a few weeks. nothing major. just something i have noticed that hasn't healed up fast like things used to when i was older!

if there's any pain, def do NOT do that workout. do NOT workout a body part if there is actual pain.

one thing i'll suggest, wall pushups or knee pushups instead of regular pushups to take the pain off. especially wall pushups...i was talking to my mom about wall pushups and i will (if she lets me) actually show her within the next few times i see her (though she may not be up for me telling her what kind of exercises to do!)

Donkey on 08/30/2020:
When I don't have a list to work off of, I feel that it's more disorganized. That's just me. However, I surprised myself yesterday by getting a lot done!

The wall push-ups are an excellent suggestion! I think that maybe I'll incorporate those, anyway - pain or no pain - into my challenge.


Maria7 on 08/29/2020:
Don't worry about typos. I do that even using the computer. Smile.

Donkey on 08/30/2020:
Right??? :-D

I've mentioned this before, but the last time I gained a lot of weight, my fingers got so fat that I started making a lot of typos. That's when I knew I had to get a grip.

 Yay,  it's Friday!  And our heart wave should be coming to and end after today.  I am looking forward to the weekend. 


Big news at work!  We're getting another attorney!  He will start in 2 weeks.  I was quick to recognize that this will mean changes,  whether they come quickly or gradually,  and for me,  I must remember to be flexible and helpful.

I started a conversation with my coworkers that maybe things don't have to change on day one but that as things change,  let's talk,  so that no one is feeling overwhelmed or freaked out by the volume of work to be done. 

**It's rather ironic that i write this,  because that's exactly how I've felt these past few weeks, and I'm sure I'm not alone. **


I think I did ok with food.  Perhaps I grabbed too many cold cuts at dinner?  Held off snacking on a bag of white cheddar popcorn that was calling me from the pantry.

I hope I remember to weigh in tomorrow.  I'm very curious to see where I'm at. 

Progress as of today: 44.5 lbs lost so far, only 7 lbs to go!

innerpeace on 08/28/2020:
New employees and change are hard to deal with...my face usually breaks out. We are getting a new meteorologist and moving at the same time, so this should be fun! I hope you can come up with a solution that works for everyone. Have a great weekend.


Horn_of_plenty on 08/28/2020:
lol to your "heart" wave! the typos are hilarious here as of late (i certainly contribute tons as i don't usually check my entries!)

wow! a new attorney! how exciting. that will def help keep you all on your toes! i agree - try to be extra flexible during that time..who knows, maybe in the end this attorney will help you and the office lots! hopefully!

at least cold cuts are generally low calorie items :) (despite the salt) i used to love my cold cuts...lately i am not into meat so much (any meat)

Hope all works out well for everyone at your work.

 I'm a jumble of random thoughts this morning, but I'm very glad that it's Thursday and that we're that much closer to the weekend. 

I'm giving myself permission to not go to the gym until three weekend. This is partly so that I spare you all my lamentations about not being able to find the motivation and energy and time to go. 

Horn had commented to me about limiting my work.  She is right.  I've been working until almost 6p every day,  and going in early a couple of days this week.  Last week,  when I wanted to attend yoga,  I put limits on my time.  I think I need to start doing this again,  even with no yoga. 

Male Co-Worker had to leave work early yesterday because he's been pushing himself too hard after his intestinal surgery.  He was supposed to come back part-time,  4-5 hours a day.  He's been working pretty much full time hours,  and it caught up with him.  

That's what's been happening with me,  in a different way but same concept.

Progress as of today: 44.5 lbs lost so far, only 7 lbs to go!

Horn_of_plenty on 08/27/2020:
yes, take care of yourself. lucky for you, you are not going thru the same thing as male co-worker, but even so - you need to take care of your own body still!

i'm glad it's the weekend for you! soon it's going to be Labor Day Weekend :)


legcramps on 08/27/2020:
Yes, i'd say you've been having a tough go of it lately, and you need to give yourself some guidelines about working more than what is required of you. I can commiserate with male co-worker, though he is going through much more than I am at the moment. Hopefully he takes it easy and uses his time for recovery.

 Both Monday and yesterday,  I looked at myself in the mirror at work, at the end of the day,  and thought I looked like I had been through hurricane winds.  Like,  "what just happened here today?"  I tell myself that in a couple of more weeks,  the autumn slowdown will come.....


I did not make it to the gym last night,  and for this I am sad.   I couldn't get off of work until almost 6 PM so dinner wasn't over until after 7 pm.  Then I had things to do around the house.  I still wanted to go to the gym,  but the fatigue from the early start,  started creeping up upon me,  so I just went upstairs and got ready for bed. 

I feel like my whole day was wasted at work. 


It's been very hot and humid here.  I caught myself looking forward to autumn weather,  but I know that's not entirely accurate. 

I *do* know that I am looking forward to September as far as my wellness,  fitness,  and diet goals go! 

Progress as of today: 44.5 lbs lost so far, only 7 lbs to go!

Jacky82020 on 08/26/2020:
Gave up on gyms years ago. Have all kinds of exercise equipment here: recumbent bike, spinner, elliptical, treadmill, free weights, rowing machine, numerous weight stations. Husband really into it, works out daily, Makes be feel. bad there is no excuse for my laziness.

Donkey on 08/27/2020:
I have sufficient equipment here. The gym membership was not my idea, but I love the gym. It's just not very convenient to get to. Also, the steam room, sauna, and hot tubs are closed because of COVID.

On the other hand, I like that it's less crowded.


Horn_of_plenty on 08/26/2020:
remember don't judge yourself too harshly.

i want to say a big congrats!!!! why? because you have worked thru the pandemic while many others have either lost jobs or haven't been totally productive in getting new ones (myself).

you are taking care of your hubby, too.

so, if you feel like you don't look good or you are a mess...let it go! you are working and busy. they will not fire you because you think you look like a mess...they just want to see you do your work! and you do!

i wouldn't go to say you wasted your day at work, but, perhaps try to put a lower level limit on your days at work - ONLY IF POSSIBLE - force yourself to leave earlier than you want to. to get home and be able to take care of your health better (if possible). i'm not sure what it's like at your job or the situation in general, so i this may not be actually effective, not sure.

i am sometimes looking towards the cooler weather too. I've been to the beach several times...i really would have liked to leave Tuesday as my last day (which was with my mom) but may go one more time with friend...

i'm back to "getting in an autumn" groove too!

Like you, i am eager for September too.

Donkey on 08/27/2020:
Thank you! I do have to remind myself how fortunate I am to have worked through all of this chaos. And that I have my health.

You're definitely right about needing to set limits on work. And so part of what I am feeling and experiencing is of my own doing.

I'll comment more about this in today's entry. But you're very right on this point.


bearcountrygg on 08/26/2020:
I think just about everyone is looking forward to fall this year...we need some cooler weather.

Donkey on 08/27/2020:
The trees are losing their leaves but this is because it has been so hot and dry (no rain - it IS very humid). This makes me sad.


Jacky82020 on 08/27/2020:
Been way too dry lately here too. The ferns and rhododendrons are looking parched. 90% chance of rain yesterday & nary a drop. 80% chance today, so hoping for at least a little.

Should rain since I carried pitcher after pitcher of water out to the deck for the amaryllis. Love those guys! Grew them outside on the wear coast, but only outside part of the year here.

 Not willingly,  I was up at 4 AM,  awoken by the sound of kitty scratching the floor after pooping in the corner.  She didn't do this yesterday,  so I thought the habit had been broken since its discovery and cleanup.  I guess not. 

On the bright side,  I'm up early,  and,  albeit early,  I love having the extra time.  I've done my bike ride and finished up weights. 

 

MORNING EDIT:  I found another area where she's been pooping, in the basement.   So something's going on with the boxes.  I'll have to do double duty to make sure they are clean as often as possible. 

 

So now we have a kitty who pees outside of the box,  and one who poops outside of the box.  Great. 


 

Work was exhausting yesterday.  I took 2 walks,  just to step away and clear my mind.  The first one was a short one around the block; the second one was my usual lunchtime walk. 

By the end of the day,  I was mentally exhausted.  So no gym.  But I did take care of my plants outside and ride the resistance bike last night, which helps me decompress. I  stayed up a little too late reading.  Oy, and then to wake up so early...  well,  I'll sleep well tonight. 

 

I just need to be  careful  today, that I don't eat out of fatigue.   Eating always seems to be the issue with me.  

Progress as of today: 44.5 lbs lost so far, only 7 lbs to go!

Horn_of_plenty on 08/25/2020:
Very proud of your morning activity and the ability to do your workouts before the day has begun! great job. you'll be thankful later that the workouts are done.

really sorry about this issue with your kitties. i would be very frustrated if this were to happen in my place!

maybe try for more water. like you, eating is a big issue for me particularly when i'm overtired and need energy. def a big deal for me. since not working, this is one thing i've been able to mostly eliminate (eating for energy bc i'm tired).


bearcountrygg on 08/25/2020:
The kittys sound upset or mad or maybe they don't like the kitty litter..is it a new brand? If it was me...i think I would place a litter box in places they are now going....( even an old dishpan, or small old bin or even an empty box lined with a plastic bag and some litter.......that should tell you if they are just being difficult or angry. Is the one that scratches on the floor at night and goes on the floor actually trapped in the room and unable to get out to use a litter box? Something else I would try would be to put them in rooms ( separate) with water, food and a litter box...if they still dont use the box then they are upset.......if they do use the box i would leave them cooped up like that for a few days with several visits a day so that they do get attention.....maybe they need to get back in the habit....do you think they miss your son? I love pets but they sure can be a huge mystery at times.....something else I always do if I move their litter box is to show it to them...sit them in it...they always jump right out...but they do inspect it.....good luck they sure can be confusing at times.

 Did not sleep well due to a reoccurring dream where I had to get to 191th Street and kept getting lost or stuck. When I finally woke up,  I didn't want to start my day if it meant going to work,  which it does.  Eventually,  I got up to start my day. 


 

I went to the gym yesterday and had a good workout.  I managed to do some weight training,  without hurting my back or my shoulder . It seems as though I've aggravated my left shoulder; usually it's the right shoulder that gives me problems. It hurt to the point of realizing that I need to rest it before I can do much more with it (them - my shoulders, that is).

 

It was a good eating day too.


 

Starting to formulate goals & plans for September already!  I'm exciting and ready!

Progress as of today: 44.5 lbs lost so far, only 7 lbs to go!

maybe you can start, after resting, with different exercises for your shoulder?

Sometimes here I don’t see the response box for some posts, such as Donkey’s above. The box is under Horn’s post. Anyways, I have a recurring dream in which I’m lost and can’t get home. Been going for years! Involves different locations. Dreams are weird!

I can also commiserate with your dream! I had one i'll always remember where I was in a huge building and couldn't for the life of me find a way out of it. It was hugely scary and terrifying!

Oh, here is a missing post. Geez, I was in that building too!

I never remember my dreams. Do you always remember yours, or only if they are stressful/anxious?

It has been quite awhile since I had those kinds of dreams...now they are pretty calm...but back in our working days...my dreams seem to consist of me needing to run...but all I could do is crawl....sounds like our dreams are very similar...my dad used to dream that wallpaper was always rolling down on him...when he retired it stopped...my guess is that it all relates to working, trying to get ahead or keep up with everything...basically dealing with the rat race....

D says he used to dream about not being able to find his truck after work...or that the walls he just built would fall down....yup...work related.
