(counting calories/walking/elliptical/weights)
Weight: 112.5

home: drank kombucha at like 4am as i felt so bloated bc i hadn't used the bathroom since Sunday and wasn't going to work today like that...it fixed a lot of my issue thankfully. 70

Breakfast: coffee 50 (shouldn't right now but it's filling in the morning - it's bad for cramps and stuff), avocado with added pepper and garlic 160 on english muffin 150 with egg/egg white 100

Snack: TBD, i think a protein bar and banana...not a day or week to really limit myself.330

Lunch: really tasty and healthy :) very happy. some salad with a light balsamic dressing 150-200, salmon 250-300, piece of cheese and couple small cheese tortellini 100: 600 tops and i feel good though tired (but i feel that everyday after lunch no matter what i eat lol). 

Snack: half orange 50

1500...really tired, i'm happy to take the bus, get off early, walk, and go to bed very early tonight...like possibly right after dinner.

Dinner: i think food at home..i have tasty squash and all kinds of things...maybe mashed cauliflower and my squash and a little protein (frozen but it's quite tasty with a little added flavor). i'd like to go to bed early and limit the eating once i get home...have another good day for this week under my belt :)...i may just have jello and whipped cream. tired.jello and whipped cream habit will die down eventually........at least the rest of the day was healthy.

Went overboard at dinner 775 cals

Total cals today is 2275.

5day: 2083

 

____________________________________________________

 

Overall i'm doing good, just a little low energy / body aches due to hormones. I have lots of bloating and thigh cramps right now...would rather be home sleeping / pooping honestly. stomach is out of whack. it's hormones. i'll be far better by Friday. Happy to get extra sleep tonight as last night was not that great. I took two tylenol to alleviate most of the pain.

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

bearcountrygg on 05/02/2018:
Oh...thigh cramps are the worst.....More liquids...will help it all.....feel better


happy-1 on 05/02/2018:
Feel better! Hugs. I know the feeling.


graindart on 05/02/2018:
Got on a squash kick a month or two ago and was enjoying them almost nightly. Acorn is probably my favorite, followed by spaghetti. Butternut is a distant 3rd.

horn_of_plenty on 05/02/2018:
Delicata is awesome - it's easy to cut even raw and you can totally cut it up and slather a bit of oil around each piece and every for awhile like 45 min till browning - like fries!

horn_of_plenty on 05/02/2018:
But not high cal like potato


Donkey on 05/02/2018:
Ah those hormones... right there with you.

horn_of_plenty on 05/03/2018:
this round wasn't the best and wasn't the worst. low energy this round.


happy-1 on 05/02/2018:
I refer to PMS as "channelling satan" because that's what I feel like. The last 2 cycles have been a lot less psycho. I think it's the maca powder I'm putting in my oatmeal every morning.


bearcountrygg on 05/03/2018:
Left all that behind at 48 with a total hysterectomy....which comes with it's own problems...

 On another note, i can relate to all the folks that feel they are doing good but that the scale isn't moving...like you, i feel i have been doing good, but the scale shows i must do better as it's moving slow...and today, after a very low cal night, it actually went up too! so, goes to show that just one good day doesn't change a scale...takes much more than one good day or week...takes weeks and months to turn the scale around.

_____________________________________________

I went to drop off my car at planned time for the airbag recall before work at new place sort of by the train (the car dealership service is around a mile from the train) that goes into city to my job area....they didn't have the part!!!!!!!

Even though i'm late to work, I can leave on time because i already made up 2 hours of time knowing i was going to be late today by 2 hours. so this is good that i can leave ON TIME.

So, when i leave, i have to go get my car which should take at least 20-30 minutes walk from the closest train to that area and luckily it's also the train i use to go home so it's on the way.... then i'm driving straight to the gym for a workout and snacking on the way in my car on the drive as i used to always when i drove after work lol....hoping to be at gym around 6pm.

I have been working to get this recal done for 2 months now...pretty funny how long it takes to schedule and actually get a recall fixed at Poniac/GMC/Cadillac dealerships! Scheduling isn't the best with them...so now i'm waiting, still, for a phone call telling me that they have the part...then, no matter what, i have to call them to confirm they have the part the day before i actually get the service done, so that i dont go there for nothing, again. So far, it's happened twice now...once at a dealership with both poor service and poor attitudes. Now, it's happened again at this place, but at least customers are treated respectfully.

...it's sorta all a big joke as you can see! I'll be happy to just get it done.  Waiting on their phone call that they have the part, to schedule AGAIN to get the recall done lol.

_______________________________________________

hamster finally let me pet her last night...she actually stood still for several minutes at a time, a first for her as she's HYPERACTIVE let me tell you!  however she was in a weird postiion, like she though i was a male hamster coming up behind her :(  ah well. she enjoyed being pet and a little massage and that's all that matters. also the first time i put her in the ball...and man is she fast...the ball was seriously bouncing loudly off my walls lol. today different from the previous hamster. it's good a have a good cage that she can't chew through bc she def would have escaped already!  i also fed her part of a carrot...she's a good girl!  still i haven't held her for more than a second as i believe she's still a little scared of that...but things are getting much more comfortable with my girl Teddy Bear as i named her.

 

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

graindart on 05/01/2018:
When I was super obese I never really understood slimmer people having a problem losing that "last xx number of pounds". I figured they just weren't trying hard enough. When I weighed 260+, I could drop 10 lbs in a few weeks if I wanted to. And shedding my initial 100 lbs over the past year was fairly straight forward. I followed a plan and I saw weekly results. Seeing the fairly quick results kept me motivated.

Now that I'm down to only needing to lose that final 10-15 lbs of fat, it's become extremely difficult. I guess I now understand people saying that losing the last few pounds is the hardest.


bearcountrygg on 05/01/2018:
I'm happy to hear that the little miss is settling in.....I'm sure she will be lots of fun!

horn_of_plenty on 05/02/2018:
yeah, she has a big personality! she seems to get what she wants. i pet her and sometimes she'll totally show me she wants me to stop it! quite funny!!


Donkey on 05/01/2018:
I really enjoyed reading about your hammy... She sounds so cute. She'll come around with time. Keep working on her.

Exactly what you said about the scale: do the right thing, gain weight. Have dessert, lose 2 pounds. Slow burn....

horn_of_plenty on 05/02/2018:
and now, def due a lot to hormones right now, i'm up 2 lbs from a few days ago...that's just how it works i guess!

________________________________________

Eager to eat dinner tonight earlyish, get to appointment, come back home and be sleeping early so i can resume the gym tomorrow. bit of a sleepy day today.

I was contemplating going to gym before appt but based on my activity level on weekend, i'm better off not doing any more straining on my body until TOMORROW :)

I have big plans coming up in the next couple weeks, may have to skip a gym session ...really want to try not to, though...as i'm finally progressing very well.

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

graindart on 04/30/2018:
It's a lot easier to stay committed to the exercise when you're seeing progress. Good job.

horn_of_plenty on 04/30/2018:
yes, indeed, and i totally don't wanna fall back on it again like what happened this Winter! it took me all Winter to get back to where I was when i fell off the wagon in January!...thank you!!

and now the eating is making slight progress as well...the weight loss, i mean...slow progress, but going.


bearcountrygg on 04/30/2018:
Lookin good!

horn_of_plenty on 05/01/2018:
OH YES...today was EXCELLENT.

horn_of_plenty on 05/01/2018:
i like having a light day here and there, like this.

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

Donkey on 04/29/2018:
Ooo sounds like a fun, filled day. Tell us what movie you saw when you get the chance!

horn_of_plenty on 04/29/2018:
Avengers .... wow it's going to be almost 3 hours !!!!

horn_of_plenty on 04/29/2018:
I really went to the movie to be social lol to do something with friends - but - actually here writing to you during it since nobody is in back of me my phone light isn't that disturbing :). I'd rather be productive here and use this time wisely than try to watch the entire 3 hour Movie lol :) still sorta happy to be out and do some driving actually !!

horn_of_plenty on 04/29/2018:
About the friend stuff I appreciate your kind words on my earlier entry :) now that I realize that Ricky isn't going to be a friend I can see much anymore due to us not meshing well anymore and his wanting to control most things and me - seems it will be a year of me being more open to going out with friends I may not be as close with and / or a year(s) ahead of possibly meeting someone new to do things with - preferably a man to share more than just outdoor activities with - I do long for a man in my life - so we'll see :)

horn_of_plenty on 04/29/2018:
lol I watched maybe half the movie tops makes no sense to me these cartoons lol I prefer a good drama or comedy :) still sorta happy I made the effort to drive out here and accept the invite ! I think this will be a year of accepting more invites....


bearcountrygg on 04/29/2018:
My mending never seems to end either.

horn_of_plenty on 04/29/2018:
Still need to mend it....needs more buttons back on the comforter cover....so comforter doesn't come out of it...


graindart on 04/29/2018:
I used to love movies and still enjoy taking my girls to the movie theater on occasion because they seem to enjoy it as an occasional "treat". But now my attention span just doesn't last past around 45 minutes for movies or tv shows. Even if it's a really good movie I was looking forward to, 45 minutes in my mind starts to wander to other things. That works fine when I'm at home and can just pause it and come back at a later time or different day, but not so much in the theater.

horn_of_plenty on 04/30/2018:
it's nice to watch a movie at home and get up for pee breaks, etc.

this movie, avengers, isn't my taste in movies but i decided to go out since i had been invited to go as a way to see my friends at bit more - i feel my relationships are strained and that need to make an effort to see friends more. i watched a most half the movie, spent the rest of the time on my phone bc i was in the corner with nobody in back of me, lol.


graindart on 04/29/2018:
Getting together with less close friends that you normally wouldn't is often a good way to meet new people. That's actually how I met my wife. A friend invited me to her birthday party get-together. We weren't real close friends and I wasn't overly interested in the birthday party, but decided to be polite and drop by for a little bit. That's the night I met my future wife. She was just back from college and wasn't overly interested in going to the party, but just went to be polite. That was almost 20 years ago, how time flies......

horn_of_plenty on 04/30/2018:
that's a really nice story...it's my goal to meet some new people and see friends i haven't seen in awhile this year...need to make some grand changes in my relationships.

________________________________________

Bought a ticket to see a broadway show tonight after work, just me, it was a deal.  Will update when i find out which show :) 

________________________________________

Also, I am happy because the next month, May and even June, looks to be active and busy with lovely and fun plans :) yup, already. Welcome, SPRING!

I'LL BE SEEING SAINT JOAN ON BROADWAY TONIGHT, WALKING THERE FROM WORK...LUCKY FOR ME, THERE'S ACTUALLY A SUBWAY STATION 3 BLOCKS FROM THAT THEATRE THAT HAS A TRAIN THAT I TAKE TO GO HOME. CHEERS.

and the cast is mostly Men...liking that!...takes place in like 15th Century France...i'm liking all of it !...It's the Story of Joan of Arc :) very cool.

i'm going alone to the show specifically bc i asked friends multiple times if they were interested / free on certain dates and they weren't and i just wanna do something i've wanted to do...without having to wait for a future opporutnity. so instead of always waiting, i'm ready to do things myself these days. half the weekend will go like this, too...Sunday is with friends.

too many times i don't do things because of dependency on others...i'm going to start doing more by myself so i can enjoy more...it'd be nice to do it with someone, but that opportunity isn't always available for a single person.

Around 2200.

Weekly Avg is good around 2140 per day and lots of good walking after work on Friday going to the theater and then a little walk home from the bus and weather was decent not too cold !

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

bearcountrygg on 04/27/2018:
Show sounds like fun....have a nice evening!!!


happy-1 on 04/27/2018:
Fun! What a story!


Donkey on 04/27/2018:
I hope you had a good time! I can relate to feeling like there's nobody to do anything with. I've always kept to myself, so I didn't have a large pool of people to draw from. I had a hard time doing things by myself (young, lack of confidence, lack of money, etc.), so I got married. Fast forward 23 years and I still have trouble finding people to do things with. My husband and I don't have many likes in common and with his health, his participation in many things is quite limited now :-(

horn_of_plenty on 04/29/2018:
Yeah I've always enjoyed having one or two close friends ....

Today I went jogging and had brunch - total overeating fest - and a movie with people - seems fun but at the same time lately I wish for someone to feel closer with - to be intimate with - a friend and lover - who also likes some space like I enjoy mine - I hope to continue thru life and enjoy the ups and downs and meet more people and friends and a man still that is a compliment to myself :)

horn_of_plenty on 04/26/2018:
lately still averaging 2050 or more calories per week, but seriously trying to snack less and eat more at specified times than all morning or all day...it feels much better too :)

1500 is not the total ;) for today!

but boy does it feel better to not eat always to the point of bloating...this was a great week overall!


Maria7 on 04/26/2018:
Coffee? Yes, of course!

horn_of_plenty on 04/26/2018:
it's available 24/7 at work with milk pretty much always there too....i call that a GOOD DEAL!!!!! yes, please!


Donkey on 04/26/2018:
I boiled eggs this morning, after reading your post (and after donkey daughter said she just took the last egg)!

Looks like a good day!

horn_of_plenty on 04/27/2018:
OK, NOW IT'S BEEN TWICE THAT I STICK THEM IN THE FREEZER TO COOL AND FORGET TO TAKE THEM BACK OUT....SO IN TOTAL, I'VE THROWN OUT A DOZEN EGGS NOW!

LOL, i learned a lesson, no more putting eggs in freezer bc i seem to forget to take them out after a few minutes! lol!

and guess what, i left late purposely so i had time to boil more again this morning <3

great minds think alike :)

enjoy your day, Jdonk!

bearcountrygg on 04/25/2018:
Keeping our mood up is important.....You are using that box of cookies up slowly.....That's good.

4day 2120 - good!

I stuck entirely to the plan above today for food...and it feels GREAT!

I hope to see more of hammy Teddy Lady tonight :) So far, she's GREAT at hiding!

______________________________________

So i'm doing this work, very slow process, and got hungry all morning and now i realize right now that i'm not hungry but totally wanted food as a delay tactic....so glad i'm not reaching it....and waiting till noon to walk and then eat. i'll be working on sticking to my gut these months...and not reaching for something as often at work throughout the morning i'm going to try to have less snacks...like 2 but not more than that in a 5hr period from 7am-12pm.

______________________________________

I have a union meeting tonight at 6pm...i think i'll come home to eat before it? or maybe just eat out before it? beause i want to again go to sleep early after this meeting so i'll be ready for a good gym session tomorrow night...once again, i'm planning for a LONG walk home tonight, 1.5 mi. I'm really trying to get my walking up during the week...I don't think i'm ready to jog during the week yet or want to yet as the walk is 1.5 mi which is simiar to me trying to do my 2mi walk/jog...i'd rather keep walking after work until May, unless i have a day off (FRIDAY afternoon i will plan a jog bc i am off from work - unless it rains!) then, i'll actuallly go to the gym and use the treadmill / bike / stairs, i've decided maybe i can do like 10 min on each one :)

_____________________________________

I got GREAT sleep & actually woke up & GOT OUT OF BED from my alarm. I changed the music from a light Jazz station (which was playing for perhaps a month) back to pop last night bc the signal was coming out fuzzy not for any other reason...but...the pop is better for waking up, I realized! NO MORE LIGHT JAZZ in morning to wake up to!

YES...it is really working for me...delaying eating until a planned time is quite empowering!!!! You Go Girl!!!

horn_of_plenty on 04/24/2018:
really hard at this desk job...would be awesome though to overcome this.


bearcountrygg on 04/24/2018:
It just occurred to me that the little gal may be more active at night and sleep during the day....that just may be the way she is....

horn_of_plenty on 04/24/2018:
oh, this is the life of a hamster..they are more nocturnal :) last night i fixed the wheel and it was totally silent.


graindart on 04/24/2018:
Had miso soup myself yesterday. Good job on sticking to your meal plan.

horn_of_plenty on 04/25/2018:
Sticking to my plan is for me one of the hardest things to do :)

and when i do...it's a great feeling before you go to bed and when i get up the next day...and i cannot wait to continue with weightloss now.

You mentioned "hunger" as a delay tactic. I had a similar experience today -- not exactly a delay tactic, but a coping mechanism gone awry just the same. I'll comment more about it in my own diary. But just wanted to let you know you aren't alone!

this has been a huge and horrible habit of mine since my senior year of high school i remember it starting. just horrible a decision to turn to food instead of just getting to the task...

however, now that i've realized it the past couple of days and wrote it here / admitted it to myself, i notice lately in the afternoon a lack of hunger when i used to be...i think i'm starting to notice a few differences of real hunger vs not...still learning myself.

of course, my face is a bit broken out from what i've been eating...makes sense :) so i'll be working on improving it this week!

Hamster, a tan short haired female named Teddy, is hiding a lot in its tubes, but i see it also running on wheel, eating and drinking. So, we're off to a great start with my Teddy Lady. This one can run FAST - as in WAYYYY too fast to catch...i cannot right now take her out to play...and when putting her in a ball prob on weekend, i'll have to do it over the cage or she WILL run and i will not be able to catch her. She's only around 2in big right now, very tiny, and cute.

2050 weekend avg, very good.

I texted Ricky although i said i wouldn't...he seems fine...like usual, he overreacted with me telling me never to text him...he said he could get together to talk over things so i'm not confused, but i'm not eager to see him today or this week, really...i should make him wait.

Progress as of today: 1 lbs lost so far, only 5 lbs to go!

You're allergic to girl scout cookies. Me too. You get a pimple or two on your face, but my whole body just swells up. I'm sure it's not that I put on fat from eating several boxes in a row, it's got to be that I'm allergic.......

Horn_of_plenty on 04/24/2018:
Seriously, Girl Scouts are NOT concerned with the health factor of those cookies! Killers!

Teddy sounds like fun......she will be a stitch to watch......2 inches is tiny....she is just a baby....a hyperactive baby....LOL

Horn_of_plenty on 04/24/2018:
Ok, this hamster is sooo fast that i can hear her drinking from her water bottle, i'll get up to see her, and she'll already have run away and is back in hiding before i ever noticed !

She's FAST!

Horn_of_plenty on 04/24/2018:
good thing is she's a VERY DEEP SLEEPER!

horn_of_plenty on 04/24/2018:
i'm thinking it's good she sleeps deep as a sign of good health...lol...it's really not that big a deal :)


Donkey on 04/23/2018:
She must be a young one, at 2 inches long. Yes, they can be so very quick, but once she gets settled, she'll adapt a little.

A good day - in spite of the bump in the road with breakfast. Well done!

Horn_of_plenty on 04/24/2018:
I have seen her twice so far, while she's in the wheel...she just stands there, so still, scared stiff by me! I hope she's not a dwarf hamster, i don't think so. They are just little in general.

Yeah, she's just a little baby thing. very small and cute.
