___________________________________________

I just don't have a desire to go back and teach, don't have a desire to do much more except try to do the work i'm given,i don't have many desires right now. i realize i may not be able to travel much more or do much of anything in life due to all of the poor choices i have made...so if i want to be a court officer, i should just keep on training with the exercise and train to the exact requirements of the physical test or i may not even get that position...so, starting this weekend, i'm starting to train exactly to the test to figure out the beep test and how to train and set up for it - so i can practice in my gym. vacations prob not again...i'm so freaked out on life you have no idea.

We'll suffice it to say it was like being in another country where the gym was located that I went to yesterday. Not really the best place for me to be....manager was gone so trying To Get my money back today bc I signed up stupidly for a year contract and should have just paid the $20 to workout for one day - yesterday -

Lately I am feeling a bit confused and scared of the present and what's to come in my future as my current job is a bit confusing now and the materiAl for my current assignment makes no Sense at all I'll have to ask someone bow to donit. I am just hating the unknown right now - I like the gym and even that seems a challenge To go to right now bc of schedule change - And soon to be taking a class For The next 10 weeks tonstart on 1/23. Just a lot of change. That class is 1x a week from 5-7 so Another day of getting home late. Life is just a bit confusing.

so i want to be a a court officer but my physical ability is low and it's hard to even work on that...seems like is not as easy as i thought it could be and that money doesn't grow on trees at all.  Seems everything is just SO CONFUSING...typos are bc i type here while on the bus...

i am going to learn to live very modestly bc it seems that's the only thing my brain can work it's way around for now....my apt is expensive it seems in my mind to pay for just by myself...i am sorta scared out of my bones right now...i'm feeling really REALLY desperate to just know how to keep on....i guess i just need to figure out my work for now...here, at this job. freaking scaring the sh*t outta myself right now.


like i should almost live with my parents is how desperate i feel in my heart. things just don't look good. i just realize that being married could have been better at least paying rent-wise...i'm a mess in my thoughts right now. just need to slow down and think of today and not tomorrow. i guess that's all i can do at this very moment.

Progress as of today: 5 lbs lost so far, only 0 lbs to go!

innerpeace on 01/10/2018:
Life is scary, all you can do is live one day at a time. Don't get discouraged. You have a goal with plans, so just keep working towards that goal and look at work changes as obstacles and keep moving forward. One thing is work is a must to maintain monies for essentials, so I get that. But as I've told my BFF in Oklahoma and my DH, you are trainable! You can learn new things and sometimes you will have to be out of your comfort zone, but you got this!

Try and have a good day. IP

horn_of_plenty on 01/10/2018:
i just know that i'll never be rich and just scared i'll never have enough money to live normally in life ... but maybe i should go on like most people do - those who aren't rich - the ones in the direct middle - and just live life as it comes as i have been doing. everything scared me but i guess i can just try to keep on...it seems i'm one of the only white women / men even that takes the subway and bus now in the morning...i wonder - how is it that nobody else is riding but me who is white!? have i done so wrong? made so many wrong choices?

all in all, i just feel a bit out of my element as of late based on day to day strange experiences.

horn_of_plenty on 01/10/2018:
ty for kind words, i'll make the most of what you said.


happy-1 on 01/10/2018:
Omg, i could have written this post. I feel for you.

Hugs, thank you xx


Donkey on 01/10/2018:
I completely understand where you're coming from. Remember when I was freaking out a few months ago, knowing that my husband was going to stop working, and that we'd have to sell the house, etc.? Sadly, I too know that we/I will never be wealthy. I don't really wish for things like that because I'm afraid that I'll come into riches in a way I don't want to! (i.e. being the beneficiary of someone's life insurance policy!)

Please don't judge your financial status according to your fellow commuters. While your observation/conclusion made me smile, I don't think you can make that deduction about others' money situations.

I would encourage you to try not to let your anxiety run amok and keep things in a healthy perspective. Yes, save money if you at all can. Yes, live modestly, as much as you can. But you can't think too far ahead or you'll miss the moments in front of you!

It's definitely not worth it to marry someone you don't love, or to work a brutal job.

I DO AGREE that if you want to be a court officer, you should train SPECIFICALLY for the test. Your goals and parameters are set; now work on meeting the challenge. I'm surprised to read that you feel that your physical ability is so low. Don't let the discouragement from your previous physical test dampen your ambition.

I bet that a lot of this ambivalence about yourself and your future is stemming from not feeling very comfortable at your current assignment...

yeah, i need a change. but starting to freak out about how i'll never have enough money to retire!?


Donkey on 01/09/2018:
Any gym that is convenient - i.e. on the way, close by, will be a benefit. Too easy to talk oneself out of going if there's any issues getting there. Even for die-hards.

horn_of_plenty on 01/10/2018:
no good in terms of location i'm one of the only caucasians...everyone else of Spanish decent mostly in the entire neighborhood. so i stand out like a sore thumb and my dad was more than upset about it to say the least...i have to go get my money back today. life is once again f'ed up.

Happy day at home :-)

Late morning Huge navel orange 150, chips 450....600.

1pm bacon jerky 300 and celery 50

2pm snack the last of Renee's stroopwaffle cookies she gave me - they were the minis 5 left 200 cal

1150.....been sleepy and resting all day - did a little laundry and shoveled the light powder type snow away from my garage - it had been there since Thursday and yesterday I forgot my shovel so I just drove over it lol .... no biggie but it was good to shovel it away so it can melt and be safer to get my car in and out .... it was about 6 inches deep and a width of like 2 feet that needed to be quickly pushed to the side :-)

After 20-30 min walk where I actually did not freeze bc I dressed well: Small alcohol beverage 100 and one fiber one cookie 120

1370, excellent

2000 cal, tops :-)

Making my chicken fingers for dinner and hopefully they will come out nice and krispy rather than soggy like last time - I think the problem is they are not supposed to be sprayed with cooking spray. They are Purdue white meat frozen breaded chicken fingers

Progress as of today: 5 lbs lost so far, only 0 lbs to go!

BearCountryGG on 01/07/2018:
Glad you are Happy!!!!

horn_of_plenty on 01/07/2018:

horn_of_plenty on 01/07/2018:
Just going outside to get my blood moving for a few minutes.


Maria7 on 01/07/2018:
Wow, you got a lot of snow.

___________________________________________________________________________

In an attempt not to skip gym because i've definitely skipped it often lately due to a cold and the cold, i'm heading for it this morning & by bus. i'd rather not find parking on the snow filled streets or use my car in these frigid temps with older tires and an older car now - so not worth it. 

Progress as of today: 5 lbs lost so far, only 0 lbs to go!

Donkey on 01/06/2018:
Welcome to the Commuter Life! In my younger years, when I didn't have a car, I was often quite grateful, in fact, that I could rely on public transportation and not worry about the weather, traffic, parking, etc.

Have a wonderful workout! Nothing like a gym session to kick off a weekend!

horn_of_plenty on 01/06/2018:
Yes it's really great how reliable public transport is :-) it makes you more on time to work I think too !

horn_of_plenty on 01/06/2018:
Or at least right now still getting used to public transport I am more on time to work lol - I give the public that takes the transportation such credit - it can be so crowded and sometimes awkward and sometimes gross and also the many times you can't sit when all seats are def taken - and older people and all kinds of people are taking it - says something for the strength of New Yorkers :)


BearCountryGG on 01/06/2018:
Good idea taking public transportation....leave the driving to them!

horn_of_plenty on 01/06/2018:
I ended up driving bc I couldn't wait outside any longer - feet were going numb ...bus was delayed


BearCountryGG on 01/06/2018:
OHHH...and loving the Hammy Pics on FB!

horn_of_plenty on 01/06/2018:
Ty ! Finally he looks good in a pic ! Glad you enjoy them too!


Maria7 on 01/06/2018:
Hope you have a good day and thanks for the advice re: popcorn and bananas... Good to think about...

horn_of_plenty on 01/06/2018:
You are welcome ! I usually eat a banana everyday bc I generally have low potassium so they help. But their high sugar always leaves me hungry soon after i eat them I'm always hungry again !


Maria7 on 01/07/2018:
You really got me to thinking about bananas. I had a little canteloupe yesterday. Hope you are having a good day and continuing to feel better, HOP.

horn_of_plenty on 01/07/2018:
Cantaloupe is definitely the lower calories choice :-) nice !

Work snacking / early meal: 2 dark chocolate Lindt truffles 140 and coffee 50. approx 200.

Late morning meal: wrap 100, cooked cranberries 30, peanut butter 200. 330.

650, nice. and another chocolate 100. 750

Healthy lunch: bagel 350, egg 100, cooked veggies 300? tofu and veg soup ordered with coworkers 650, tops. nice to enjoy a bagel.

1400 after lunch

snack: clementine

1450 before leaving work, excellent....

Very healthy dinner of egg 100, kiwi 50, tons of roasted and cooked veggies 200 and popcorn 200 550 oh and berries 50 and kombucha

Weekly avg approx 2050 and today was 2100 very content with that perfecto week. No exercise till tomorrow .... with the freezing temps it's been difficult as well as having a minor cold

______________________________________________

 My body is very sore from a great workout Wednesday night but then no movement at all on Thursday - spent almost the whole day on the couch and the lactic acid didn't get a chance to move around so i'm very sore still from Wednesday night's workout..so my next one is planned for tomorrow, early afternoon - workout schedule has been irregular due to having a cold and the horrible weather - hard to drive / park car right now - so i'll wait till tomorrow to figure it all out since it's my only plan for tomorrow!

___________________________________________

Someone brought in bagels but i'm holding off on eating it till lunch because all bagels do is make you crave more bagels...and i don't need to inhale carbs first thing today....the bagels look EXCELLENT. I can eat the bagel with lunch bc i brought a low calorie lunch (one egg and lots of cooked veggies)

______________________________________________

 

It’s always nice to have an unexpected day off…except if it means personally having to shovel and snow blow all day?! I was just home and it was peaceful. My dad stopped by lol I am not even going into that …it’s hilarious he drove my mom to work yesterday so he went to work also because they work near each other and I live by them…idk, I’d think at 65 that they’d just STAY home considering my dad has to shovel and snow blow…I’d think he’d just NOT drive my mom to work (45 minutes away in good weather!) …but I guess she got the last word yesterday! I just think they’re dumb and dumber…both want to show the other one up….LOL that’s seriously what I think of it. I felt so bad for my dad to have to snowblow last night, after getting home around 4pm finally with my mom (he told her he had enough and he was picking her up from work by 3pm after he napped on my couch awwww daddy…).

It's actually dangerous to be out in this...I'm feeling bad though for the people that are running out of supplies, food and meds...here it's been like this for quite awhile.

horn_of_plenty on 01/05/2018:
agreed, yes....i am sure there are people not as fortunate and not as prepared.

I so enjoyed doing NOTHING.


happy-1 on 01/04/2018:
Oooh you must be super happy!!! Sounds like a good day for Netflix and Hot chocolate.

horn_of_plenty on 01/05/2018:
SUPER happy, YES!...though i didn't watch a movie or have hot chocolate, the day was peaceful.


Donkey on 01/04/2018:
Glad you got a day off !

horn_of_plenty on 01/05/2018:
ME TOO! needed more relaxing....lol, if i only skipped the gym the whole time of the cold, i might have been better already....but...i'm just trying to balance it with rest....prefer not to skip whole weeks, so just trying to get some of the sessions in...skipping tonight bc it will be a disaster with the snowfall to try driving...so i'm making it an "all-day" event tomorrow - the only goal tomorrow is getting to the gym...and also food shopping....less is more this winter.


Maria7 on 01/05/2018:
Enjoy your day off and hope you are feeling better every day.

horn_of_plenty on 01/05/2018:
yes, i'm getting there. going to the gym keeps making my throat sore due to heavier breathing, but, the soreness goes away over the morning...i'm trying to get the right rest to keep improving. it's working slowly.

thank you!!!!!!!!

Going to gym tonight bc tomorrow is probably a snow day and then i can be home all day tomorrow resting again. there are chances that work is closed tomorrow, so i'll make the effort to work out tonight in hopes that tomorrow is a snow day at home and i can rest more then..

Forgot what I ate after gym ?

BearCountryGG on 01/03/2018:
I find myself doing the same thing...the minute I swear off something I'm eating it......and I don't know the answer of how to break that cycle.....UGH

horn_of_plenty on 01/03/2018:
to break the cycle i guess is to ALLOW it in your diet and not make it an all or nothing rule....yes.


Maria7 on 01/03/2018:
I am fighting popcorn cravings these days...not the cheap kind you can pop in a microwave but the kind you pop in a pot with LOTS of oil. Glad you are feeling better, HOP. Try to take it easy getting back into your regular schedule.

horn_of_plenty on 01/03/2018:
ty....in general i sometimes find moderation hard...the gym might have to happen tonight...i'm so sick of constantly losing strength.


Maria7 on 01/04/2018:
Thanks for the suggestions to replace my popcorn craving...Right now I am eating bananas instead of giving in to the high fat popcorn. Hope you are feeling better today.

Happy New Year DD friends !!!! Thank you Webmaster !  Isn't it wonderful how many people are using this site after it's been down like a couple weeks!? We love it!

3day average: (def high for not exercising): 2250, but still within decent limits. really i should go to gym tomorrow, but, i realize i can't if i am still with this cold - which i will be. i guess i'll just have to wait until i'm better - rule of thumb is you have to be well below the neck to gym to gym....and my cough is below the neck in my lungs obviously. ah, we'll see. just too lazy to cook today like i had planned.

2018 New Years Day:

total today is 2100...been eating more, especially due to the fact i was taking an online course throughout the 3day weekend and not exercising. i've run outta steam and do not plan to even cook today like i had planned. instead, taking nighttime cold medicine and bed early. i prob won't go to gym tomorrow, taking extended time off gym to feel better. maybe i'll cook tomorrow night, i think...

___________________________________________________

I'm doing this online 10 hour safety course. its taking much longer than 10 hours - taking me most of the holiday weekend. It's ok - i'm sick and nothing more i can do than relax on the couch! So, let me get back to it, I'm almost done! I have about 4 hours left and already completed 6 hours. I hope to be done actually by EARLY afternoon - def before 2pm! I'd even prefer to be done by noon - but depends how fast i can read, click, not get disracted, and how long i can sit on the couch without getting up! lol...

_________________________________________________________

I finished the course at 1:10pm and even did laundry also ... just need to put it away. I got so sick of the course, i decided to see if the laundry room was empty and to my surprise it stayed empty besides for myself of course and nobody came down at all while i was doing laundry! Was wonderful to be the only one in there, getting in & getting out without having to talk to anyone!

I'm going out to the store to buy a few more things to fight this cold. Then, i'm picking up some Miso soup and I'm coming home to have it as well as to cook. No gym yet, i'll wait till tomrrow because i'm just NOT 100%. I may even have to wait till after tomorrow if i want to get rid of the cold....yes.

I may actually skip working out until the cold is fully gone. but i do know also another thing - i am going to be getting even busier as the winter goes by - because i'm taking a course that starts January 23 and is only 1x per week lasting till early APRIL! ...that's a sorta impactful commitment, especially if that means to balance now 4x a week of being out of my apartment after work/weekends. It's just a lot for the Winter.

And a lot with all the job location changes and commuting. I am working just to feel better - another reason to wait to go to gym when i'm feeling much better - although it also means AGAIN my strength is DECREASING. I hate missing workouts, it truly screws up any hopes to actually get stronger because i'm constantly sliding backwards and having to recoop. ah well.

Over the past couple weeks that DD was down, I logged about 2100 per week for those two weeks (sorta high, i have been indulging) on calories while being sick with a cold. I might have to visit the dr today to get something stronger than the cold meds I'm taking...since it's been around 2 weeks now. I'm just gonna buy more cold medicine at the pharmacy.

Progress as of today: 5 lbs lost so far, only 0 lbs to go!

I feel your pain -- my online CE for loan originator is 8 hours and took almost twice as long to complete. Good luck!

PS Hope you feel better soon! I had a nasty cold for about 2 weeks. Now the husband has it.

yes, this cold has been 2 weeks. i hope it'll pass. i know i don't need to see a doctor - that i need rest. it's good when i'm just home but as soon as i add in working and commuting and gym, all those extras bring me down again! lol

also, it also took me well over the 10hrs to complete - more like 15...

but it's pretty much still better than going outside your place to a class all day.

Happy New Year! Hope you feel better, HOP.

Horn_of_plenty on 01/01/2018:
I am getting there, thank you Maria! good to see everyone logging on!

That sounds like a miserable cold...I've heard of a few people who ended up with a sinus infection after their colds in December....rest is best. Do you take a multiple vitamin? Probably wouldn't hurt.

horn_of_plenty on 01/03/2018:
I just want the gym so badly :( may just be waiting until Friday bc really need to be better

Before starting up with soon an added class every Tuesday night until April...I am hoping this cold ends by weekend. Starting to even feel fat but that could also be PMS lol I do feel moody....

horn_of_plenty on 01/02/2018:
isn't it the best...and it helps you poop.


happy-1 on 01/02/2018:
You know what... that explains a lot and maybe I will cut back...

horn_of_plenty on 01/02/2018:
