(Low carb eating w recumbent bike, yoga, weights)
Weight: 139.0

 I was completely surprised by my weigh-in this morning, considering how I had struggled with chocolates and marshmallows earlier this week.  The only thing I can think of is that it's the weight training that causes me to gain weight.  Well, at least I won't have to struggle with the box of chocolate any more. 

I am off for an entire week.  I plan to take Horn's advice to enjoy it, regardless of what we decide to do.  I will not go into the office this next week if we end up somehow canceling our trip.  I do not think we will though because Husband has already made plans with our son, to help him with some laptop issues, during the visit.

I struggled yesterday with a cough.  Some of that is because wearing a mask dries out my throat more, it seems.  And some of that was just part of the sinus infection moving along. (It's always the same stages when I have a sinus infection, just sometimes it's very mild and sometimes it's raging.)  I realized that if I'm in a terminal or perhaps on a plane, with this dry cough, they may not let me fly!  My husband asked me not to cough any more (what?!?) and said that he can't make the trip alone.  (This is true - he is just too encumbered by his limitations that he really truly cannot travel without assistance.)

In Illinois, the gyms can no longer have group classes, and we're supposed to wear a mask AT ALL TIMES.  I just don't know if my particular gym is enforcing this policy.  I admit:  yes, it is uncomfortable and can be very difficult to do cardio with a mask on.  I have no plans to visit the gym this weekend.

However, I am putting up more Christmas lights outside today, to help get into the Christmas spirit....  well, the house will look pretty when it's lit, anyway.  Bah humbug...

Progress as of today: 47.5 lbs lost so far, only 4 lbs to go!

grannyannie on 11/21/2020:
Enjoy your time off. Get lots of rest.

Horn_of_plenty on 11/21/2020:
my comments for now...great weigh-in! way to go, so proud of you! just keep being moderate, that's what it is about. moderate, what you want, trying not to overeat. just way to go!

please try to also be moderate with your sleep and how much you are going to push yourself with this trip. not not to overdo, if you can. or, try to at least be able to unpack and rest a bit when you come home. if you have to quarrantine or something when you get home, just do it. bc i don't remember the last time you had a week off!

i'm sure your cough and sinus infection will continue to heal. maybe keep that to yourself (don't mention at the airport!)

yeah, i wouldn't trust the gym for anything. it's not the place to be.

show us a pic, if you want, of your lit up home!

Horn_of_plenty on 11/21/2020:
also, i wrote you back on my entry for both your comments. i wanted to be productive today...i still have an hour plus to be productive now, and that is my plan :)

Horn_of_plenty on 11/21/2020:
i appreciate your comments a lot. they help me a lot.

 I have a mish-mash of things to say. 

Woke up with my right ear feeling clogged,  so I have a sinus infection.  I will take a decongestant to help my ear feel less clogged. I'm still wearing a mask at work.  I will wash my hands even more and sanitize my desk area a couple of times today. 

Nice Lady did not come in yesterday.  She had a fever and chills and fatigue.  She is getting COVID tested today,  she says.  This may be as a result of the flu shot she got on Tuesday.  You should have seen the reaction of my co-workers when they found out. Everyone is wearing a mask when they are not at their desk.  My problem is that my desk is in the middle of everything so I have to keep my mask on almost all the time because of people walking by. 

The training session last night was very informative.  It helped me make some decisions for myself as far as my future with the clinic:

  • I will not volunteer in a virtual or hybrid clinic. If they want to run the clinic virtually,  then I am not the volunteer that they need. 
  • When we return to an in-person clinic, I will need to reevaluate if I can do the new procedure without it being too stressful. I will give it 2 clinics to try it,  and if it's too much,  then I am not the volunteer they need. 
  • If the clinic leader leaves,  I will not continue with the clinic.  The friendships seem to be the only reason I'm hanging on.

I had trouble with food again last night. Had some marshmallows, some peanut butter. It wasn't overindulgent but definitely not good choices. Definitely stress and fatigue. 

I am only now starting to tell people online but my husband and I will  be flying to Vegas next week,  to spend a week with my family.  We made these reservations in August when COVID  numbers were down.  Unfortunately,  our nation did not do enough to keep the numbers down - "we're turning the corner on this" - A BIG LIE - and now we're flying in these insane conditions.  I'm very stressed,  very conflicted,  we've talked about canceling,  but I guess we're going. 

Progress as of today: 47 lbs lost so far, only 4.5 lbs to go!

grannyannie on 11/20/2020:
Glad you wear your mask at work. Scary that someone in the office is sick.

I get plugged up ears often - very waxy so use ear drops once a week. Sinus headache pills might be helpful.

Turning the corner on this was always a lie as was anything he said. It's getting up to 2,000 deaths a day now.

All I can say in response to your traveling to see family is yikes!

Donkey on 11/20/2020:
I know, I know. I mean, I'm a skeptical, cautious person. Traveling is out of my comfort zone to begin with. How on earth did I not foresee that we would be in this dangerous situation?

I cringe when I think back to August when I was encouraging my boss to book a tour trip to Italy again, with his daughter, in November. Good thing he didn't do that!

But again - what the bloody &^%$ was I thinking???

Jacky82020 on 11/20/2020:
I saw some tests done on planes on TV. Because of the ventilation system, the air quality was excellent. So it should be fine.

Donkey on 11/21/2020:
I have seen this too, and New Guy also brought this up (before I saw it myself online and TV), to help me (?).

They are talking about how you should wipe down everything, and use hand sanitizer - yes, if she can remember to bring the sanitizer this time!

There seems to be conflicting opinions about whether a long direct flight or a layover (2 shorter flights) is better. You know, this makes me MAD. Get together and get it right!

It's kind of like the mask thing - if CDC had just said at the very beginning, We're not sure, but wear a mask, it couldn't hurt, it probably would help -- rather than saying (back in February), No you don't need to wear a mask. I feel like if they had gotten it RIGHT at the beginning, we wouldn't have half of the conflict and problems we are having now.

legcramps on 11/20/2020:
I think you might find that the airports/planes/travel process are much safer than you think. Although I can understand the hesitation and if given the choice would not travel right now, but if you do everything you can to mitigate your risk, you can at least say you took all the precautions you possibly could to safely travel to see your family.

I haven't seen my family in a long time; my immediate family lives about 2,200 km away from me, and through two provinces. I can understand wanting to take a mitigated risk to be able to see them. It makes me tear up every time I think of them :(

Horn_of_plenty on 11/20/2020:
regarding your job, it is hard to come into work 5x a week and it sounds like you all are getting a little run down. Regarding weitz & lux, whom i interviewed with, they are only in the office 2-3 days a week and work from homme the other days. i think it's really hard at this covid time to come into work everyday like it's no big deal and there's no other challenges. but you are doing a great job!!! xoxoxo

i'm looking forward for you, for your trip to Vegas. Please relax when out there and enjoy the time. just be safe and mask up and take those extra precautions on the flight.

a neighbor has returned from Florida and she is just fine, no Covid. my next door neighbor, in fact.

grannyannie on 11/20/2020:
No way I will travel until I've had a vaccine and even then will wear a mask. It isn't the flights and airports you have to worry about, it's family members who are positive and don't know it.

My sister won't get together with family for Thanksgiving or xmas. Someone in her grandsons school was positive. How would she know if one of her grandkids has it?

Just found out my favourite aunt and uncle who are in their 80's are going to have family for Thanksgiving! I hope they are both still around for xmas with them.

grannyannie on 11/20/2020:
Donkey, I hope you reconsider. My son was only 46 when he died of Covid. High BP and his weight were his only health issues. Unless all your family is going to get tested before you arrive....

Donkey on 11/21/2020:
I know. Believe me, I have struggled with this a LOT. I suppose a small consolation is that we're going from a red state (IL) to an orange state (NV).

Jacky82020 on 11/21/2020:
Annie, same for my cousin. She was a little older than your boy, but in good overall health, except overweight with hi blood pressure, like most Americans. And probably most everyone else. I grew up with her in California. Our fathers were brothers and the families were close. Lost another cousin to covid as well. Didn’t much know him, never lived in the same area, but very sad. Young guy.

grannyannie on 11/21/2020:
I am in a FB group for those bereaved by Covid. There are about 6,000 members. Horrific stories. If you read a few you wouldn't take any chances.

An expert on tv said stay home on Thanksgiving so you aren't in ICU on xmas.

 I did better yesterday but did have 2 chocolates at work at the very end.  I'm almost done with the chocolates,  but let's see if i can hold off eating the last 2, shall we?

This week is almost over and I've done no weight training.  Mostly because I've been trying to get into bed as soon as possible,  and there's always a million chores to do beforehand.  

Tonight,  I have a training webinar for the legal clinic, to discuss ways to reopen the clinics during COVID.  Here's my suggestion:  DON'T.  I have absolutely zero interest in holding/running clinic once a month right now. But I'm willing to hear what they suggest. 

Progress as of today: 47 lbs lost so far, only 4.5 lbs to go!

Horn_of_plenty on 11/19/2020:
nice job on treating yourself with a couple chocolates...certainly within a portion and does no harm and is delicious! :) good for you.

sorry about no weight training, rest is more important though. you don't need to have lingering colds all winter.

i was talking to my friend about how just about nobody is going to be as produtive as they were pre-covid. like, even at work, with the anxiety and stresses of covid, i feel that most people are not able to be as efficient or productive (to a degree...). My opinion. so i totally agree with you about the reopening of the clinics and how it poses another level of stress on top of regular stresses right now. you do what you can right now...and at least the webinar tonight can hopefully educate / inform you in some helpful way whether you pursue it or not. you do you.

legcramps on 11/19/2020:
It would be different if you had a lot of downtime and would be able to put a full effort into the clinics, but it seems like you've been busy from the get-go, non-stop. I really don't see how adding hours of work to your life is going to benefit you or any of the other staff in your office right now.

grannyannie on 11/19/2020:
Agree the clinics should not be opened. Cases of Covid are rising rapidly everywhere.

If you need extra rest then you should skip muscle work for now.

Jacky82020 on 11/19/2020:
Haha, love your advice: DON’T Do you eat those low fat chocolates or whatever they call them? Supposed to be very healthy.

Horn_of_plenty on 11/19/2020:
i also love your "DON'T" ...see above in your writing in reference to the clinics. lol.

grannyannie on 11/19/2020:
I've bought 85% dark chocolate. Not exactly low in calories but a lot less than others. And it's good for you!

I'm so frustrated with myself.  I had too many chocolates at work,  and then,  after an unhealthy dinner,  had one of those jumbo oatmeal raisin cookies from the bakery. What is wrong with me?  I know part of it is from not quite feeling good,  but how does eating a whole bunch of sugar help anything?


I was having difficulty with wearing a mask at work,  and used the chocolates to get me through that. 

I have been feeling fatigue in my joints,  cut short my walks (I think). No bike ride last night,  went up to bed and relaxed until 9p. Lights out. Felt better rested this morning. 

Well,  all I can do is what I have done.  Today is a new day. 

Progress as of today: 47 lbs lost so far, only 4.5 lbs to go!

grannyannie on 11/18/2020:
Sugar is like a drug with me too. Good while you are eating it but not so great later.

Hope you start feeling better and more energetic.

My mask is a washable one - 2 ply I think with a slot for the filter, so 3 ply. I only wear it for about 15 mins once a week at the supermarket and can't wait to take it off! It's just so hot. I'd have a tough time wearing one all day.

Jacky82020 on 11/18/2020:
I’d be wealthy if I had a dollar for every time I gobbled down a plumb cookie when I sure didn’t need the extra calories. We all do it.

Hate the masks. Stuffy and fog up my glasses. Using one since March now and see no end in sight. Even with the vaccine.

grannyannie on 11/18/2020:
I find that if the nose grip is tight enough I get very little fog on my glasses.

Horn_of_plenty on 11/18/2020:
if you feel fatigue, do rest. i support that!

next, it's ok to have the cookie. remember this. perhaps plan it into your day no matter what. if it's big, cut in half and have it with your tea / coffee or as a late evening reward. you deserve sweets. you can do this.

it's hard to get used to mask wearing all day.

 Still not quite 100%.  I thought I was almost back to feeling normal,  until dinner, which felt like a rock,  and then started the gas. 

Now that the CDC says that wearing a mask CAN protect yourself (as well as others), I started wearing a mask at work all day.  After a couple of snide remarks from others (WTF?), Nice Lady and Male Co-Worker also started wearing masks.  New Guy usually wears a mask but didn't. The  mask is more about me than it is about them, anyway. 

My boss seemed bothered by it.  Oh well,  told him I could always work from home.  

The Boss's daughter,  who had COVID,  came back yesterday, after the 10-day quarantine period. I hope she doesn't come upstairs to visit her dad or take chocolate any time soon. 

Did I mention that daughter's boyfriend's roommate has COVID too?  So she hasn't seen him for nearly a week. 

Sorry - enough of the COVID talk.  It's not only boring and mundane but discouraging and depressing.

grannyannie on 11/17/2020:
I've seen data on how masks protect you and others for many months.

Hope everybody with Covid has a mild case!

I listen to everything being said about Covid, especially about the vaccines and the timelines. I need to get to Michigan!

Horn_of_plenty on 11/17/2020:
did his daughter do another test? some people still have it after 10 days! 10 days is NOTHING!

i know someone who had to quarrantine for 20 days!

yeah, she needs to not see BF for maybe 3 weeks! not kidding!

Donkey on 11/18/2020:
His daughter did not have another test. That would not be helpful. As I understand it, the test would reflect antibodies, showing she's had it, which we know. That's all. Doesn't tell if you're contagious.

Boyfriend tested negative. That's very good news.

 Feeling much better today.  I could tell yesterday that my appetite was returning to normal. Food didn't feel like a rock in my stomach,  and although some things still tasted off, for the most part, food tasted alright. 

I also had more energy,  especially after sleeping 10.5 hours Saturday night. My joints still ached a bit but it was manageable. 

I rested for most of Sunday, although I did ride my bike twice,  to help with the stiffness in my back.

This will be a very busy week at work.  Everyone wants to close on Friday and none of the loans are ready.  Kind of hard to close without money. What part of that do you not understand?  That's what I want to ask people who complain that we're not closing on time.

 Good morning!  So glad it's the weekend.  I really just need to rest.  I haven't been feeling 100%, but it's impossible to get tested for COVID around here.  Appointments are 1 week out.  I don't think I have COVID anyway, as I have no fever and I can still taste and smell.  So what I have is more likely a sinus infection and the PMS pains that come from hormones.

I'm surprised to see the lower number on the scale, as I stopped tracking calories after having that big piece of cake earlier this week (Tuesday, I think?).  Starting Thursday, I had little to no desire for coffee, which is the #1 indicator that I'm fighting something.   Everything I ate just sat in my stomach like a rock.  Yesterday, I was very gassy, which means whatever this is, is working itself out.  I've been going to bed at 8pm, able to fall asleep quickly, but then not getting enough deep sleep.

I woke up so stiff in my back this morning, that I had a hard time getting myself downstairs to ride my bike.  Thank goodness I have the bike.  Afterwards, I am limber and mobile.  

So my main goal this weekend is to rest up pretty much.  I'm doing laundry, which is not too intensive.  The basement floor had to get mopped (thank you, Baby Kitty), so I did that, and now I'm resting.  I will try to get outside to break down more branches that fell during the last windy day, but if that is too much, then I'll stop.  I should be able to fill the birdfeeders.

No gym at all this weekend.

Good job getting under 140!

You mentioned your boss's relative worked nearby and was positive, right?

Have a good rest.

Jacky82020 on 11/14/2020:
Hey, you’re under 140! Congrats. Big milestone for me not so very long ago.

Horn_of_plenty on 11/14/2020:
Yeah, i second everyone in congratulating you on an awesome weigh-in!

Rest helps when you aren't feeling great. so if you need rest, do it by all means!

exercise only after you feel better.

did you also have less of an appetite this week?

Horn_of_plenty on 11/15/2020:
i think a goal to continue with your weight in this lower range (130's) is extremely doable for you...and it's still warm enough to do cardio outside sometimes walking...and still not the dead of winter when people really struggle at continuing their exercise programs (though me and you will always keep ours up even if we need to take a break here and there).

 I'm not sure if I made good use of my time off yardstick,  but it was nice to take a break. 

I took a nice walk (by myself), mended my glove,  made a fabric skirt for my desk area at work,  to hide the storage stuff under the table, rode my bike early, and did a great upper body weight workout.  Weights started out as chest only but then I started ding biceps and triceps because it felt good. 

I seem to have strained a hamstring in my right thigh. I think this was from jogging over the weekend. Just that little bit caused all this inconvenience. It's been quite distracting for the past 2 days but this morning it finally feels better.  Anyway,  that is why I did not do legs weights. 

I wish I could tell you all it ended splendidly,  but alas,  I had a big piece of Election Day cake from the freezer. I wish I could say it's almost gone but there's still 5 large pieces left.  Why is my willpower so weak?  I think it was because I wasn't feeling  100% last night.  Didn't want decaf,  and usually when I'm getting sick, coffee is the last thing I want.  That's kind of where I was last night. 

It is difficult, logistically, to get tested for COVID.

I think you made perfect use of your time off, and i'm really glad to hear that you took it. You should do that more often if you can :)

Horn_of_plenty on 11/12/2020:
yeah, seems only way to do well on the court tests is to be accurate on it!

extra credits go only to Vets...veterans. ah, i'm sure overall not too many of them take those court tests so that's OK with me!

cool idea on a skirt for your desk. yes, i use to put things under my desk too!

this weather, as it gets colder and darker, seems to get me run down as well. dress warm and sleep well!

I decided to take half a day off.  I didn't have much to do at work, and decided it would be nice just to take some time away.  I've been distracted at work, by so many things, and today was no different.  So I'm hoping that the time away will help me refocus when I return. Also, I had some little things at home that I wanted to take care of, e.g. sewing up a mitten, trimming the cats' nails, etc., and now I've had time to do these things that are best done in natural sunlight.

The Boss decided to get started talking about Christmas gifts for the realtors, and then he went off the deep end on trying to figure out why realtors that have used us in the past but are now using other attorneys.  Then he goes into this whole thing about his marketing plans for the New Guy - but none of his ideas can happen until after COVID is under control.  I had to think to myself, as I was minding my own business, that the successful ones are the people who think of how to reach out in the here and now - not waiting for conditions to be ideal.  

Oh yes, need to step away...

I went to bed last night at 7pm and pretty much slept until my alarm went off at 5:15am this morning.  No evening bike ride, no weights, just sleep.  I think I really needed it.  I woke up this morning feeling tons better.

I'm going to take a walk around my neighborhood now, and enjoy the rest of my time off.

Sometimes rest is the best medicine, no doubt!

Horn_of_plenty on 11/11/2020:
re- your question the other day about the court assistant test - you are so right i could be reviewing / following up on notes for the test....

well, the court assistant test is rather EASY. same with the other.

however, i have my flash cards i made for the vocabulary section on court terms...but i will not study those words now as the test is YEARS away (around 2+ years?) ....

the test is NOT paralegal level. those court entry tests are more basic. they are also about ability to spot mistakes. later i may buy some kind of book or app i can use to help me, but it's not a "subject matter knowledge" test - it's more of a general aptitude test.

i should stop my procrastinating on PM...i will lose all chances to pass soon....listen - if it's meant to be, it'll be. otherwise, who cares. ;) (PM Test).

Horn_of_plenty on 11/11/2020:
what might help me for the court test, is to possibly do something in volunteering - like Auxiliary police for NYPD...the volunteer division. it might help me on the court test...sometimmes they ask about if i was in any organizations, specific to that type...i have to actually research how i can add on to my score....and you just reminded me to do that type of research.

i'll let you know if i find out anything on how to add onto a court assistant exam score (how to add extra points)

Well.... I think i should have re-read my entry from the morning,  when I got home from work,  as I was not able to resist having a piece of the chocolate cake for dessert. I'm not going to teach my goals eating cake,  that's for sure. Come on,  Donkey, get with it. 

Found out yesterday that the Boss's daughter who owns the PT business downstairs,  has COVID, and is isolating at home since Tuesday. I sure hope my boss is being honest when he says the last time he saw her was Halloween. Apparently,  we're not doing contact tracing here,  either. 

It did not help things to be feeling poorly, myself, but I believe this is due to allergies, as everyone in the office is coughing and sneezing. I have a dull sore throat and my breathing feels slightly constricted. BUT I have no fever,  and I can still taste and smell (which is the only symptom the Boss's daughter has).

No weights last night. I know,  bad.  Instead, I rode my bike and spoke to my mom on the phone for about an hour. 

Tonight would be a good night for weights ;-) and the chocolate cake is GONE. No more distractions!

please go get tested. Symptoms are NOT the same for everyone. If you have issues breathing, please, please go get tested.

i've been having a slight annoyance in my throat but i also do not think i have covid....fingers crossed.

i can DEF taste my food and def do not have fever. one day, last friday, volunteering, i was talking a lot and seemed to give myself an irritated throat. then i saw my parents saturday, also lots of talking. then also had some phone conversatinos that were lots of talking...

....either way, COVID spreads and people do get it, even if accidentally.

a friend of mind that i actually know from facebook and in-face meeting him a few times, got covid. when i asked how he thinks he's gotten it, he said the supermarket....so people can get it, accidentally, even though they try to follow precautions.

i'd say that you can get to your goals eating cake...just slower....

but it doesn't matter bc the slower things happen, the easier it is to maintain those things.

we all know there are skinny people that can eat cake...eat fries....so in moderation it can be done!

maybe not as often or large servings, but the foods obviously shouldn't always be off limits.

who knows, maybe you are turning over a new leaf in terms of moderation.

Maybe you should get a covid test. Hope it’s not a hassle where you live. But more than likely you have seasonal allergies like me now.6

I have officially banned cheesecakes from the house. I am simply unable to resist and was shocked to see the barely macroscopic pieces are 350 Cals each! Sucks! And I was getting the multiple flavor slices and eating all the chocolate & coffee ones, frozen. So good!
