(counting calories/walking/elliptical/weights)
Weight: 115.0

2-day avg: 1950, good.

Kombucha 60

Breakfast: wrap 100, banana 100, almonds and some peanut butter 200. 400. and a small ice cream bar to satisfy me like yesterday. 100.

450, excellent.

Snack before haircut and color 120 double choc chip cookie

Snack on way home before gym 200, and cookie 120

900 before gym - looking forward to veggies tonight ! And egg I think !

Healthy dinner: cabbage soup 150 with rice 100, veggies sauteed 150, egg/egg white 100, strawberries 50, ice cream bar 100: 650.

total today is awesome 1550. (needed this).

And a banana small one 100.

Then reading.

Today i am visiting my grandma - need to leave here around 8:45-9am ....good i am writing this i realize i need to already get going in the shower!  then haircut after and gym after that.

__________________________________________________

Took sleeping pill last night as I was tired and not feeling productive at all yesterday, seems it was an ok idea. i was in bed early around 8? and woke around 7am. i feel good.  Body feels way better than yesterday when my legs were very sore from jogging the day before. Still debating if my walk/jog plans are going to interfere with gym and the answer is prob yes.  I don't want to go to gym less, but i may have to :-(

 

Progress as of today: 2 lbs lost so far, only 3 lbs to go!

Donkey on 05/21/2017:
If you like going to the gym, then I would suggest you modify your gym routine - meaning the circuits you do -- and or shorten your sessions at the gym. I would count your jogging day as a leg day, so you want to be sure that you are not working on legs (with weights, that is) the day before running, the day of running, and at least one day after running.

You could still go and work on upper body, core, or a specific (upper) body part like your back.

I hope this makes sense...

Horn_of_plenty on 05/21/2017:
you have a good point. i def need to think about how i'm going to keep as much muscle as possible in my legs and not burn it up....as i don't have much...by coordinating with gym leg stuff but not overdoing. i'm going to read up on this...it deserves some serious thought, indeed! thnak you...

i'm going to have to cool it i think with the weights. it's sad....grrrr....maybe i'll have to force myself to take a month off ? because i will soon need to focus solely on the jogging....ugh. only bc of nypd.

i'm still in the process of figuring things out regarding all of this. next weekend i've decided to actually NOT jog and just enjoy the holiday weekend. i think.

in tune!

Cliff bar 250

Total today a healthy 2250, rest day.

 

 

 

________________________________________

wanting to read! LOL. later today after the concert i'll pick up some food before gym and put it away for the week ahead. planning to pick up lots of pre-cooking stuff so take as i am NOT in a cooking mood today. i'll prob pick up some cabbage also as it's been good to use as a base for my meals as well.

1:20pm healthy lunch! cabbage 50, special jackfruit dish i bought some leftovers 150, eggpant leftovers sauteed pieces 100, turkey burger 150, small orange 50 and so tasty, caffeine: 550 or so tops. so healthy! less carbs.

weekly avg: 2100, decent. a bit high, but i think i'm burning most of it - especially with my great workouts and soon to be 2x a week cardio.  I know i have a long cardio session today of 2mi...i'm thinking the mid-week one should be short, more like 20min? still thinking about it & my changes for next month.

2mi walk/jog today :-)

(counting calories/walking/elliptical/weights)
Weight: 115.0

Home: kombucha half of it :-P didn't need more - saved for tomorrow! 50

Breakfast: big banana 150, wrap 100, cream cheese 100, lox small amount 50, coffee 50: 450.

May just have an early lunch @ noon, no snack - we'll see how this plays out lol.

Healthy EARLY 12pm lunch; coworker gave me a homemade spiced Indian potato / green pepper dish that i mixed with turkey and cabbage 550 (and a small orange) 

Healthy additional snack 1 @ 3pm: almonds 150...some salted. so good!!!!!!!!!!!

Snack 2 before gym: fiber 1 choc chip soft baked cookie (totally love these at the moment!) and low caffiene "Core" drink (same caffeine as 2 cups decaf coffee)....

1350 before gym :-)

Ice cream and bar 450 after gym 1800 today ! Nice :-)

Lately i'm very hungry and craving bananas constantly. rather than hold back, i'm eating. 1 huge banana 150 and chips 100.

2050 today = still excellent.

6day average: 2120, good.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

I woke up last night 2am hungry, so i ate. I already factored it into my weekly total and today i'm starting fresh with calorie counting & not including the small snack i had at 2am. Seems i needed it - and more carbs & potassium lately. 

On the positive:

All in all, i am confident in myself.  At work, things have calmed down. I walk around with my head up, full of confidence & ready to stand up for myself against the bullies and stupid, ignorant woman that stand for bullying in their clique. Most women are nice, but it's generally (yes, it's like that in the workplace) the big-mouth nasty bullies get their way in this company. They speak up and stand together as a big bullying group against single one-manned people such as myself.

I am eager to jog in the warm sun tomorrow after work, eager for my gym workout tonight, eager to wear shorts during tomorrow's jog as the weather is above 80 for tomorrow and over 90 today!!!!....!!!!....and eager for my haircut on Sunday. lots of good to look forward to. I'll be visiting my grandmother on the weekend also.

This weekend the plan is for typical stuff...no social plans as I am more eager for gym, errands, grandma, haircut, laundry, food shopping, etc. No time that i am eager to spend socializing since i'm already busy with a bit this weekend.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

One piece of negativity rolling around in my mind:

They (BULLIES) are a disgrace to the human race. Adult women who do not think for themselves. And allow their husbands & social friends to tell them how & what to think!  Are they really this stupid. It saddens me. One girl in my dept...she constantly talks  of doing things...because her boyfriend does. It makes me SICK.  Is she not capable of using her own brain? or is her own brain simply spoiled bc of the unfortunate clique she is in? Is her mind so dumbed down that she can only think as others tell her? What a disgrace to the human race bullies / friends of bullies / cliques are. A MAJOR DISGRACE!

I learned - Don’t trust cliques of women especially if you know a woman is in the clique…better off never chatting with them (they have their clique and that’s enough).  If a woman is extra friendly and in a clique…steer clear…they are acting. This is what I learned in the last two months here (mid March thru mid May now). …cliques function with a “group brain,” not a real brain that they use of their own.  The act and do as the entire clique agrees to act / do.

 

This makes me want to vomit.  However, I do realize that DEF NOT ALL women / people are like me (I’m in the minority) and that I DO NEED to understand that MOST PEOPLE do NOT have my personal mindset. And I do realize to function in society, I need to have an open mind for people….but also need to maintain some of my privacy as well.

Progress as of today: 2 lbs lost so far, only 3 lbs to go!

(counting calories/walking/elliptical/weights)
Weight: 115.0

2am thurs: banana 120, honey 30, pb 100, wrap 100: 350. was hungry / restless

2133 5day average, fine. lately i have a HUGE appetite.

______________________________________

6am: Home: 70

8am: Breakfast: wrap 100, cream cheese 100, lox 100, coffee 50, banana bigger 130

10:30am: snack: small egg AND COOKIE lol 100. eating more sugar lately but also sleeping more...but also doing good with activity....sounds reasonable and good!

Noon: Bigger, very satisfying lunch with caffeine afterwards: cabbage 100, carrots in some hot oil 150, lots of soy meats hope to throw the rest out tonight i think i'm eating too much of it? 250 at least, chips 150:  650 approx. decent.

1400 after a healthy, larger lunch. i am once again craving extra veggies! A coworker gave me some more today! i'll eat them for dinner since he gave me them after lunch (his wife is an EXCELLENT cook!)

Snack:another cookie, 120....lately i want to eat more but i think the increase in exercise has caused it - starting my jogging that is!

1520 before Dinner: wrap and egg 160, lots of veggies some in sauce 300, strawberries 50 500...and small ice cream or something. 200

2220, total, plus the 350 cal at 2am.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

tonight my plan is to relax after work, maybe make more turkey burgers and throw out the rest of my soy meat as i don't like to eat tons of soy anyways!

Pick up cleaners shirts after work at cleaners - forgot all last week.  and pick up library book today also.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

cleaning lady never came yesterday - i got an email from the coordinator that she got jammed up with something?...that's fine....doesn't phase me as i didn't "need" a cleaning, just wanted it.  my apt is already quite clean. just a hair dusty. and floors could use a washing in kitchen / bath. but overall it's not like i have things all over the place :-P

so i emailed the coordinator back -  that i don't want to make up a day for this month - that i just wanna shedule early next month instead (i'm busy enough - i don't gotta make up fo the cleaning lady's error too...she can come next month after the construction is done in my apt - mandatory window replacements in building so next week i have to come to work late on thursday when maintenance removes my blinds...then i have to take a day off on the 30th when windows are repaced with new....lots of time off work bc of this...but of course now i'll have new windows....but it's annoying i had to be off work (it's mandatory i'm in apt during all phases of the project)

So instead of having to reschedule cleaning lady with all of this - she can come when everything is done...when all maitenance and window stuff is DONE.

Progress as of today: 2 lbs lost so far, only 3 lbs to go!

Donkey on 05/17/2017:
Well done! Send your cleaning lady to my house, please ;-)

Have a great evening.

Horn_of_plenty on 05/16/2017:

Home: kombucha 70. should be time of month soon lol....gotta behave at work all bosses back today....i am always good, but must remember to keep emotions under wrap. to "be a man" type of attitude.

Breakfast: wrap 100, pb: 150, honey 50: 300. coffee 50. 350.

snack: bad period pains...had a banana for the potassium 120 and later an egg 80

1pm healthy lunch: roasted brussels 100, carrots in some oil 150, turkey burger homemade by me 150, orange 80, chips 100: 600, good

snack @ 3pm - small chocolate type bar 120

Dentist after work around 5:10 or hopefully i walk in there @ 5pm - i walked in at 4:58 = amazing!

Then dinner: turkey burger 150, small bit of seaweed salad 50?, chips 100, strawberries 50, ice cream 200: 550-600.

total today 2000, excellent.

3 day avg = 2066, good!

no exercise. i need to leave earlier for work tomorrow because i was practically late today.

_______________________________________________________________

Today after work: dentist appt - i must leave work on time at 4:30pm

No other activities scheduled. I have tons of food at home.  Laundry def done. No gym or walking. Perfect.

I will have to clean up, not much, for cleaning lady who comes approx 1x per month (sometimes even less than that). She's coming Tuesday morning. Really there's not much for her to clean in terms of organizing...just dusting, cleaning of floors, bathroom is really what i need....i'm not too messy a person. I tend to sometimes clean / vaccuum between cleanings when i feel the need. Really i could have held off, but it's been awhile with this cleaning service & i love this apt and feel the need to keep it organized and clean as I will live here for life.  I don't ever plan on moving out. It's too good - as long as maintenance always is this good - housing maintenance i mean!  Building and grounds are kept up so well - better than most places in Queens.

Progress as of today: 2 lbs lost so far, only 3 lbs to go!

"Keep emotions under wraps and be a man" - Lol. I know that one. How did it go?

Have you ever checked out the 5.11 stores? I went to one today. Some of the clothes were cute and super well made and the staff was super helpful. They're targeted at crossfit and off-duty military and police. The guys helped me repack my bag and find the mising gear items I needed

Horn_of_plenty on 05/16/2017:
oh nice...never heard of 5.11 stores! not sure i have one by me...i'll check it out!

i'm doing better with being quiet at work as boss wanted. and i leave at 4:30 on the dot because who in their right mind would stay overtime at a job with a boss that's nasty and i have to worry about even saying hi to someone!

Weight: 115.0

2150. Good.

7:30am Early: kombucha 50, strawberries 100, carrot salad 100. good on probiotics, fruit, veg

9am breakfast: high protein ice cream 400.  protein / milk

11am lunch 480 - some chips, some butter popcorn, smoked trout on a wrap.

12:30pm cookie by fiber one so goood - soft baked choc. chip! 120

close to 2pm snack: grapefruit 100, chips 150, cucumber salad 50

1550 staying on track bc i have tons of healthy options here, thankfully, due to my efforts to stay on track - but allowing more carb and snacks while i sit home most of today and relax. gym tonight though....unless i decide last minute to go tomorrow morning - but that'll be extra stress before mother's day...for sure. it's difficult adding in the extra jog with my gym schedule - but in efforts to counteract having less time to rest, i'm also doing less socializing until i can run better / have more energy to both socialize and jog.  right now, my schedule feels busy and i am have chosen my goals of jogging and fitness as more important over socializing and going out for this month & most of next.

4:30pm - cookie before gym

1700 before gym

after gym: protein cookie 350...and maybe some other carbs too because i don't want to go to sleep now at 9pm, i want to read.

_______________________________________________

So proud of myself.

It's 9:00am and already most things that needed to be accomplished this weekend are done:

1. jogging - did it yesterday after work!

2. Laundry - already done & put away

3. Weights routine - for tonight

4. Since i'm done with everything so early, i'll probably go to a library to attend another free concert!  This time it's an african percussion group! (drummers)

I'm so happy about all of my planning. It's worked out! I'll also go shopping later to pick up some meat.  I want to prep (tomorrow AM) some herbed turkey burgers for the week. I'll also prob pick up a few veggies/fruits.  I have to be ultra prepared bc tomorrow afternoon i'll be in city with family for Mother's Day...and also i have dentist Monday. Cleaners coming Tuesday while i'm at work...then the following weekend i have plans to visit grandma for dad, then a dermatologist appt Monday after work....just a busy month so i have to be extra careful with my planning. And it's WORKING!

Right now - 9:15am i'm going to settle into reading a nice book - another on habits by the infamous author Charles Duhigg

 

Progress as of today: 2 lbs lost so far, only 3 lbs to go!

happy-1 on 05/14/2017:
Good for you! I love how productive you were today!

Horn_of_plenty on 05/15/2017:
It felt good to prep everything and get everything done! I am feeling a need to be this way for the next couple months.

1884 cal/day this week = excellent.

edit: i did a jog, just a bit shorter - 1.5mi and also i drove her home! super successful friday....it helps to sleep well, as i have been!

there's a good chance i'm going home to rest after work - quite tired after the whole work i did at work...and promised someone here to drive them home as i have to be on my best behavior so i didn't say NO to someone at work that likes me...she lives in my neighborhood a few blocks away....

planning to drop her off...get some hot food...relax at home, read, bed early. no more exercise today other than the work i did at work...ankle needs rest....i worked hard for like 2 hours cleaning.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Home: kombucha 50

Breakfast 1 at work: banana and coffee 170

Breakfast 2 at work: smoked trout 120, cream cheese 100, wrap 100: 330. and granola bar bc work is requiring heavy lifting today from me, for real, cleaning office as told by my boss.

total so far: 650 and coworker's cookie that tasted yuck!  700.

12pm healthy lunch: 2eggs and egg whites also 180 veg 200 with oil, matzah 120: 500.

1250 after healthier eating at lunch. 

1350 after extra bar at 4pm was hungry.

 snack before jog at 5:45pm - 2 med plums 100

1450

dinner: fried veggie rice 300?, some soy meat not much 100?, and some other veg 150 tops - 550, also ice cream and fruit 150.700, good.

total today is good - 2150.

total this week will be excellent: 

buying fresh veg for dinner probably. and maybe jog.

 

 Today I did some heavy lifting for like 2hrs mostly by myself.  And now, IP, I’m sooooo glad to sit at the computer for the remaining 2 hours and bullsh*t these 2hours away. THANKFUL for resting time for a couple hours now before I go.  Maybe the rest will help me regain some energy to jog after work – I hope so – because if I do it today I will not have to do it again until next week….i have a new routine for getting into jogging with walk/jogs 1x per week until next month when I’ll delve into a schedule of 2x per week jog/walks.  I’m trying to keep my weightlifting schedule the same…and just add in the jog/walk training. So far it’s good. Sorry if I am rambling, but it feels good to be able to schedule in this new activity. SO GLAD to be sitting now at work because I did GREAT work this morning lifting so many things.  So glad it’s done !!!  I hope my legs / ankle feels good later, because assuming I recover from earlier at work, today would be the day to drive to park and jog! Rain all weekend!

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

I feel like my every move is being watched by this girl that I thought was OK.  But I’ve learned if the person is in a click, BEWARE. Stay AWAY. It’s true – most people at work are NOT your friends. NOT in the least. And some people are evil enough to WANT to actually make our lives more difficult. HOW SICK! WHY!? If you can realize this reason tell me.  Because the reason I come up with is this – many people are just followers. 

 

They do what they have to in order to stay in their click.  If one girl hates others, they keep their resolution to their click and they all turn on the girl outside the click.  So in fact, that’s what happened with me. This click includes ladies now, just under 30 two of them but others are in 40’s…that all grew up in the same town, same high school.

 

All of these women (but the young ones and 40’s!).  They’ve known of each other their whole lives and do what they need to in order to remain in their happy little IGNORANT click. It makes me very sick. So one mean woman wants me fired…they all play into it.  SICKENING.  And they walk around – like they are doing nothing wrong?  They don’t see the world outside their click. It’s in the click or you are nothing to them. How sick. How sad.  I do not get these types of sick people. It saddens me very much.

Last night after gym - egg/egg whites i cooked up last night yay as a way to plan and eat well today!...i have no meat right now at home as i don't really like to make it for the weekend bc it spoils by midweek...i prefer to cook meat to eat all week... 

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

So happy for weekend.  I will do weights Saturday and Jog hopefully Sunday if weather permits - or today after work if my legs feel up to it. If nothing works, I'll jog MONDAY in evening after dentist appointment.

I am learning there is a way to schedule the jogging AROUND my weights routine, YES. No change in weights routine, only schedule the jog AROUND my already excellent schedule!

Laundry to be done maybe even tonight a lot of it?  - if i do not jog.

 

Progress as of today: 2 lbs lost so far, only 3 lbs to go!

Someone once told me "If something negative happens, think of it as an opportunity to excel". Maybe your boss-ordered office clean up will burn a whole bunch of calories, just like a gym work-out at work!

Horn_of_plenty on 05/12/2017:
oh boy....it def did!!!!!!!! :-) burned tons extra today, yes :-D

and...i was super happy to be able to be strong and do it :-P....if i didn't lift weights, it wouldn't have been possible for me to do what i did today....i'm super happy that my hard work pays off always in the gym & out!

i'm telling you - without lifting weights, i'd never have lasted for TWO HOURS.

Thank you for your comment to my yesterday's entry. I very much appreciate the advice and it makes good sense. Yes, at first, both Hubby and myself were very hungry late at nite but now I think we mostly ignore that 'hunger signal', ha! Thanks for reminding me about the no-caffeine in the evenings rule in order to sleep better. As for people, HOP, ALWAYS be on guard...ALWAYS. Some people 'clicks' are like silent 'gangs' with cruel or at the very least, non-empathetic intentions toward others who are not part of their clicks. And just because someone acts friendly to your face does not mean they are your friend as I am sure you know. But still, at the same time, we are to do unto others as we would have them to do unto us, which sometimes means showing others undeserved compassion who have mistreated us. Some work places are war zones. I know and I remember...altho, I am happily retired now. Have a good evening. :-)

I'll NEVER understand clicks. Thank you for the sweet advice. It's sick how grown women cannot use their darn brains. Oh - she hates so and so!? - oh - i must hate so & so too! ugh !!!

and thank you for the friendly advice of mind games - women acting friendly to my face but talking about me behind my back. no trust.

I think people thrive off of negativity and drama. They are in such a bad place they are only happy with others are miserable. My favorite comment ever from a radio disc jockey - 'why can't people be happy that I'm happy?" Yes...why?

Continue to work hard at your goals and don't sweat the crap at work. Do your thing girlie...

Horn_of_plenty on 05/17/2017:
Thank you IP for your suggestions and tips. I do agree and will be doing my thing and trying not to sweat the crap thank you. Some people are just heartless. Most luckily are NOT! :-)
