Tonight:

skipping the flusing (asian) train home for the week to make my mom happy (Coronavirus)....taking E train....the slightly faster one, anyways.

weight training for upper, got situps done with morning in just the nick of time thankfully don't have to include them tonight, even if they don't take long, they make the rest of the workout longer...if that makes sense. the pushups only took like 5min this morning, but, it's like 15min saved tonight because i sometimes stretch these workouts and take really long breaks between sets (get distracted). 

also, will pack food for work the night before....makes the morning so much easier :)...if time, i'll do the laser hair removal home device. (weights shouldn't take long tonight, maybe if i work at it, only 20 min to do)

20 yrs in the union = health care for life....thinking to stay for 20yrs, then leave to work for the courts...????...sounds like a good plan although the courts seems still intriguing to start ASAP.

 

 

Progress as of today: -2 lbs lost so far, only 0 lbs to go!

legcramps on 01/28/2020:
When would your 20 years be up? Health care for life sounds incredibly tempting doesn't it?! That would truly be amazing.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 01/28/2020:
11 more years, i'd be 48-49


MrLonely on 01/28/2020:
Hey you may like to try this hack to drop 2lb of fat in 8 hours. Yes it really works and we have live proofs. Here you watch one real-life example https://bit.ly/leptitoxnaturalweightloss


bearcountrygg on 01/28/2020:
Sounds like a good healthcare deal.

Horn_of_plenty on 01/28/2020:
it is. i think the Healthcare is also offered for the courts after 10yrs.

i'm just thinking options and how by 50 i'll be less likely to want to start over...

healthcare of course is soooo important.


Donkey on 01/28/2020:
I'm going to be 50 this year and I'm seriously considering a career change.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 01/29/2020:
a career change or a simple job change!?!?

i was thinking i may do what i was thinking of (court thing) as early as possible if i can, despite a monetary loss, if i can get into the courts in a "pre-clerk" type of position. it would allow more opportunity for advancement to head in early and i think there's some medical insurance available for retirement after putting in 10 years.

Sorry to hear about the soup! What do you think went wrong?

Horn_Of_Plenty on 01/27/2020:
i think it's too gingery....i guess this soup isn't my fave anymore!

got an oil change, took care of bills, slow cooking a soup, will see ricky for dinner and also watch a movie with him beforehand :) no therapy today thank gosh and for now on it's on Wednesday evenings which will be interesting for me to do every week as it is tiring to go there from work (involves a longer commute home, then probably sleeping over parents for that night!) but, it's fine. I wanted to purposely free up my weekends and I'm very happy that they are more open now.

It is my opinion that whole milk yogurt is the way to go. :)

Horn_of_plenty on 01/25/2020:
me too...or 2% but nothing less!


bearcountrygg on 01/25/2020:
Keeping your weekends open does sound like more fun.....the evening appointment will get to be a habit soon enough.

Horn_of_plenty on 01/25/2020:
it may involve me sleeping at my parents for that night during the week...but changes things up which is good....and thank gosh therapy is not on weekends anymore. it was getting old, fast!

once again, up too late for any situps in the AM, so i'll do them in the PM tonight along with the bike. 

I have a LATE New Years resoultion which is to END my laying in bed habit listening to the radio during the weekdays.  I do like listening to the radio, but, it's screwing with my morning routine and fitness commitment.

kombucha 50

8:30AM breakfast: greek yogurt stevia 140 with blended (can) pumpkin with extra stevia 60, coffee 50..300..

10AM snack: GRANOLA BAR 110 sunbelt banana oat so good!; almonds 100

12:30 lunch: portabella burger with a lot of goat cheese 500, small salad 50, coffee 50. 650 tops

3:45pm snack clementine, baby apple 50

dinner veggies 50, small amount brown rice and black beans from ricky 200, crackers horseradish flavor so cool 200...450, kombucha 50

1750, good end to the week I'm glad !

__________________________________________

going out to lunch for college helper's last day here (he was off during January from college so he came and worked with us like he did this past summer...and he actually was assigned to ME! surprisingly, i have enough work to give him the whole time he was here!! and the work was very simple, but, it was nice to be the one to explain to him how to do it and for him to do it RIGHT. :) He was a good worker and did the work well, not with any crazy mistakes or anything, so it worked out very well.

snack: tbd

dinner: maybe tofu/brussel sprouts....and cranberries/whipped cream (couldn't find sugar free whipped cream since we are off season with it...but i got the light one, def not as good as the sugar free...it's even more airy and not as rich tasting - it has half the fat of regular).

I do plan to sleep in tomorrow as long as i want to, no therapist this weekend and starting next week i'll be coming DURING THE WEEK which will be....interesting to say the least....and a little tiring....but i feel it's better for me than such a cut into the weekend every week and sleeping over parents every weekend bc it felt like i was wasting my time and being even lazier at my folks.

I might do some baking with my coworker Linda this weekend on Sunday, but not sure. We'd be doing both the black bean brownies and the snickerdoodles, both sugar free.

bearcountrygg on 01/24/2020:
If I laid in bed listening to the radio I'm afraid I would fall back to sleep...LOL

Horn_Of_Plenty on 01/24/2020:
yeah, seems i am sorta doing just that...but not a deep sleep, it's so wasteful and when i rush and don't take the time to wake up and stay home for a little with exercise i find myself half asleep on the bus and train compared to when i wake up with extra time in the mornings out of bed, if that makes sense.


bearcountrygg on 01/24/2020:
you might be too young to remember Sara Moulton and her cooking show...she lives in Manhattan and I read last night that she admitted to sleeping on the subway...LOL....Standing up no less....

horn_of_plenty on 01/24/2020:
Do we have to believe she was sleeping standing up?! I do sorta believe it... maybe just for a couple seconds ;)

Good job exercising before work!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 01/23/2020:
yes, i hate leaving the pushups to before the rest of my arms workout...makes it longer when i can get the pushups done in less than 10 min or so in the mornings. Same with situps that i do on other mornings. It's def better to separate, making the workouts all shorter....when i do less at a time. seems to work best, for now.

it's the complete opposite of when i did a full workout for all of my body, at the gym, taking around 2 hours with multiple breaks but a long workout and driving out. now, for now, it's about being concise and to the point.

AM Situps quickly in 5min  / PM Bike/stepper & early to bed!

_________________________________________

kombucha 30

Breakfast: big slice of pumpkin loaf 400 (indulgent mood, but stupid because it just uses up calories too fast when i eat that much!!), greek yogurt 150, coffee 50

snack: almonds 100

lunch: going to buy from buffet or salad not sure (in the mood for either meat or tofu but a good serving size, maybe even salmon?) / my own cherry tomatoes also..salad greens and dressing 200, corn 50, bread 100, clementine 50, tofu large amount 200..600-650

snack ? small apple 50

1450

dinner : 800 big Japanese , one fried shrimp50, heavy black rice so good 250, scallops and veggies in sauce 300, seaweed salad 150-200 800 approx Diet Coke 

supposedly out to eat with Ricky where we get off the train in Queens before we drive the rest of the way home (15min) in his car. I may get a diet coke to enjoy with maybe sushi or something...i may keep the volume of the meal smaller which would help my stomach as i'm eating very large volumes of food lately. and maybe i'll drive a little bit tonight, since i'm going to get home after i eat i can go straight to my car from Ricky after he drops me at home which also means skipping some of rush hour when i drive on the roads (it'll be after 6, maybe closer to 7 when i get home).

Good job making time for yourself on a holiday weekend

Horn_of_plenty on 01/20/2020:
thank you happy, it worked out really well today!!!! :-)


Donkey on 01/21/2020:
You had a very productive day on your day off! Me, on the other hand, went thi within, and didn't accomplish much of anything (lol).

Lately, I haven't been able to tolerate the xylitol and erythritol sweeteners. I have a batch of jellied cranberries that I can only eat in small bites before the sweetener becomes overwhelming. I thought adding ricotta cheese would help cut the taste but all I want thi eat is the ricotta.

Horn_of_plenty on 01/21/2020:
but ricotta isn't so bad for you ...that sounds interesting...instead of cottage cheese..

also, i'm soooo sorry that the sweeteners are having that effect on you...i seem to crave them lately. i sweeten things so much...from all yogurts, oatmeal, coffee...i love it...the cranberries.


Donkey on 01/21/2020:
^^ I'm not happy with this recent change in taste or tolerance, either. Sad...
