(counting calories/walking/elliptical/weights)
Weight: 114.5

kombucha 50

breakfast from buffet, need a change, oatmeal smaller amount 100, scrambled egg whites large amount 150, 2 small pieces of canadian bacon rounds 150, coffee 50. , chocolate (not helping me with anyting besides a craving ?!) 100 (it'll be all eaten up soon!)  600

snack: BAR 200

Lunch: leftovers from yesterday's salad of slightly seared salmon 250 (will not get that again!), few crackers/beans 100, veggies 50, dressing 50, other slightly dressed veggies 100. clementine 50. total here: 600 tops. 

snack: almonds, more fruit 200 and very tasty. maybe closer to 250 - larger portions :)

Dinner: not sure, but heading to bed soon afterwards!..planning to keep it lighter & lower volume as i had a large volume lunch :) dinner was small: almond milk and stevia with splash coffee for the taste only and low caffeine, ice cream small amount, popcorn 100 cal, and couple pieces choc with stevia only. 400 cal total.

total calories 2050. 

5day avg: 2095, good.

exercise: 2 mi walking, decent.


Plan is for some walking home, but not the full 3mi.,just 1 mi extra, still good! (not looking to overdo and looking to get to bed early tonight. 

I am feeling tired.

i actually don't like to talk to my mom on the phone i don't think? she stresses me out at every call...it's actually annoying, to the point where i think i'd NEVER choose her as a friend! grrr....she's just annoying, telling me she wants me to do things, without asking nicely, just telling me "how about you sleep over here next friday into saturday instead of coming saturday..." it's not always convenient for me to do this....she doesn't even give me a chance to think about the situation before providing an answer...annoying. she's forceful and demanding. annoying.

Progress as of today: -0.5 lbs lost so far, only 1.5 lbs to go!

legcramps on 04/10/2019:
Get some rest tonight; maybe the phone conversation is extra annoying because you're not feeling well rested?

But believe me, I know what it's like to feel annoyed with a parent. It doesn't take long for me to become annoyed with my mother either, or likely her annoyed with me. We just don't have the same ideas and/or values in life, and it's sometimes hard to connect with ANYONE who can't respect where you're coming from, never mind it being a family member - that actually makes it so much worse!

Keep your chin up, after all, she is your mother and you may not need to deal with her all the time but you should still have respect for the relationship you do have with her and the time you get to spend with her. It all ends a lot sooner than we think it will :(

Horn_of_plenty on 04/11/2019:
i think my mom is just really nerving me. my sister had a baby and my mom keeps saying "well, your sister can't bc of the baby..."

and it's just really annoying as i don't need to "step up" in place of my sister.

it's like she's forcing stuff on me. except, i'm not ready this time to just "yes" her. i have my own life, which my mom can't believe i'm just not always "free" ! annoying!

your overall advice i thank you for.

Maria7 on 04/11/2019:
Hoping you are having a good day.

Horn_of_plenty on 04/11/2019:
yeah, it's been a lot of decent days!

Donkey on 04/11/2019:
I am not a phone person, period.

Hope you got some rest and sleep. Thus is something I've be struggling with myself, lately.

Horn_of_plenty on 04/11/2019:
same here, but i gotta say, this week has been 100% better on sleep compared to last week! :)

(counting calories/walking/elliptical/weights)
Weight: 114.5

KOMBUCHA but haven't pooped since Sunday, weird. 50

bread with butter and egg 300, coffee 50, 6 dark chocolate (thick coated) almonds 150. 

snack (and super hungry / big appetite today - prob not good to have had the chocolate first thing!) 200 bar good fats brand

1pm lunch: Fresh and Co. salad veggies 50, with balsamic dressing not much 50, 1/2 piece of salmon 300, few chips 100, and piece of whole grain bread 150. total here: 650

1400, at least healthy, this was important, and i slightly overeate now i'm sleepy!

Close to 4pm: dark chocolate almonds bc why not! 100 was standing up doing busy work for an hour ;)...now the day is almost done!!! AND close to 5pm a few almonds 50

before & during exercise: 2 med plums, iced coffee 150., 2 cups lighter coconut water, 1 tbsp peanut butter 100, 2 aminos drinks (10 cal each)

Gearing up for coffee and upper body weights with eventually sleep :)

after exercise: a sugary choc coated protein bar, even though i should stay away from sugar bc of breakouts, but it wasn't a binge, just a tasty bar just under 300 cals. so, all is good, ya know!?  workout was GOOD. i am stronger now that i've not skipped upper body workouts in a long time. and that goes to show, same thing can go with legs, if i continue to work out, i can only get better!

2150, good.



my skin is a little broken out around lower face around my mouth.  it's not even hormonal time for me.  I think it's due to not enough water and also due to eating too much crap?

i'll get some avocado maybe in a salad at lunch or salmon in a salad, we'll see either way, i gotta make lunch satisfying and healthy..

i didn't bring lunch from home on purpose, as i need something fresh and healthy and green and will not be finding that at home!


I have upper body weights schduled and will leave at 5pm on the dot as supervisor is out and i'd like to get the upper bod done and go to bed afterwards...that's the only main plan for tonight besides making a wrap for tomorrow / packing food for tomorrow's lunch.

I plan to start my upper bod workout by 7pm and finish by 8:30pm :)

Progress as of today: -0.5 lbs lost so far, only 1.5 lbs to go!

Donkey on 04/09/2019:
Do you think the breakout is related to your chapped lips? I have to have something on my lips all the time now. My son, though, goes through spells of getting really chapped skin (hands, lips) depending on the season. Maybe now that he's in Texas where it's either warm or hot (and no cold), he'll do better.

Good plan for working out! And the food looks good today too! (Hope you can go to the bathroom soon... Been there, done that.)

horn_of_plenty on 04/09/2019:
partial bathroom use at work ;) why not right!? luckily nobody was in there...so i could do what i had to between flushes LOL LOL LOL.

yes, the skin is all related. i think my lips are chapped partly to using something i might have been allergic to. also, then, a couple days ago, i applied tea tree oil right above my lip with obviously seemed to spread onto the lip, to chap it further LOL. tea tree oil is bad luck, i shouldn't touch it!

kombucha 50

breakfast wrap and egg 200, butter 100, coffee 50., dark chocolate covered almonds 100

snack: bar

lunch: my cabbage (big serving) and corned beef and that's it for today. (it didn't taste as good as the other time i made it, still on the improvements phase with it!) 600 lunch and popcorn snack :)

snack: fruit 50 more

1350 tasty things.

almonds in dark chocolate coating LOL 150 SUPER TASTY.

dinner: TBD, i should get off the sugar rush, maybe wrap 130 with egg100 and butter 150 again. 350, seaweed salad 100, apple 100, small cucumber salad 50. 600 healthy.

2100. bed soon. will put a cream on my ankle, wash my face, and foam roll before bed.


, not really sure, i'll find something at home though!

MY ANKLE is so itchy!!! grrr. in general my skin is so sensitive lately and itchy.


tonight: first i gotta move my car before i get home to a spot that's good all week (current one will get a ticket on Friday if i forget to move it before then - so i'll just move it tonight to get a spot for the rest of the week!)  they are still doing the garage roofs, now in week 3 or 4 i think!  no exercise is planned, i'd like to go to bed early again so i'll have high momentum to get thru this week. 

this coming weekend, assuming no rain, i've scheduled myself and Ricky to "walk the runway," a 3mi course at the local Airport! if it rains, we're not going though, despite paying...rather not get sick? not sure if we'll even go to pick up our tshirts...might as well just sleep in as we have to be there before 8am, so, we'll see. praying for no rain!

Maria7 on 04/08/2019:
Getting extra rest sounds like a good plan.

horn_of_plenty on 04/09/2019:
well, i got the extra rest and STILL woke up wanting to sleep even more LOL...seems my body knows i have a trip coming up at the end of the month, and it's wearing on me!? like i want to rest before i'm walking around all of PARIS!? LOL

thinkpositive on 04/09/2019:
Good way to start the week. Like the walking the runway idea!

horn_of_plenty on 04/09/2019:
as of now, it looks like the weather will hold to do the walk Sunday morning :)

Weight: 114.5

I went to bed on early side, woke up a hair due to some acid reflux during night but laid in bed and it went away again :) all good, slept way more than i usually do during the week...for the past 3 nights thankfully! I wish i had more days off to continue to sleep a little more - it's just what my body needed :)

 8:00am Breakfast: plum 50, shredded wheat onyxorgum cereal with almond milk 250 cinnamon and stevia, serving of chocolate protein nut butter from fridge 100, iced coffee 50. 450. tasty.

9am-11am researching, eating masala indian spiced flavored chips very tasty 200, banana greek yogurt 150, clementine 50

11:30 lunch low cal wrap 60, potato 100, corned beef 200. 350...will now throw out these low cal wraps, cannot even eat them anymore. they are too fake for me to even enjoy...blech.

4:30wrap 130, egg 70, butter 50

400 cals mostly after exercise (300) and 100 during.

2200, good.

2 day: 2075, good!!


 Paris is pretty set now at close to 3pm...(couple things are still without advance ticket purchase bc they have to be done using a special app for one (notre dame)and for a castle they are only bought there on spot (Vincennes Castle)..... everything's advanced paid for.

....and i've decided to clean my bathroom followed by a shower, then perhaps just a home workout? not sure...it's late so i don't think i need to drive out to the gym now...and the fact i don't have a garage yet, i'll keep my car parked where it is!

(i hate planning / researching, so as you can see i'm procrastinating with food, i'm not trying to do it on purpose, it's a life-long habit and very hard to just stop when my body is practically salivating like it's (food) is a drug when i'm doing this paris research - done very soon).


Plans today: limited but wanting to get them all done :)

Finish Paris Basic Plan Outline and PUT IT TO BED until trip, buy the tickets online today for museums so no waiting on lines!

Clean bathroom tub / tiles / sink :) wipe bathroom floor also.

Upper body workout at the gym, no legs


lately my upper lip is soooo dry. it's been really chapped, even when i use chaptstick, for like 2 weeks. weird. maybe i had sunburned it ? not sure when i was outside that long?



Progress as of today: -0.5 lbs lost so far, only 1.5 lbs to go!

Donkey on 04/07/2019:
My public television stations have been running Paris travel shows all weekend. I've been watching them, although they were all taped in the summer, with one taped in 2004 and the other in 2012. But I watched the ones I could catch thinking, "Horn will be seeing this soon!"

horn_of_plenty on 04/08/2019:
I will def see a little of Paris! it's crazy how big the city is, you could easily spend a month there touring LOL.

Donkey on 04/07/2019:
That's a good idea to put Paris on the shelf for a while. From what I've seen and heard, those city/museum day-pass things are THE KEY to a successful sight-seeing adventure, especially if you are limited on time.

I wish I had slept better. I stayed up too late reading, but wanted to spend time with my daughter after she got home from work anyway. I think it was worth it.

horn_of_plenty on 04/08/2019:
always nice to fit a little socializing with family time in!

Maria7 on 04/07/2019:
Always makes one feel better when they can sleep well. I know you must be excited about your upcoming trip. Happy for you and wishing you a wonderful day today.

horn_of_plenty on 04/08/2019:
yes, i love to sleep well!

thank you :)

Progress as of today: -0.5 lbs lost so far, only 1.5 lbs to go!

Donkey on 04/07/2019:
Hope your ankle is feeling OK today. I've been thinking about getting some of those air socks that legcramps talks about. And maybe a knee sleeve, too, for when it acts up, but I think most of my knee issues are connected to the PF I have in my right foot.

Horn_of_plenty on 04/07/2019:
yeah, her ideas are good...i'm going to use the foam roller now :) all good ideas. i still haven't really researched what exactly an air sock is!

2050 7 day - very decent 

Almost 9am at home (took day off) breakfast: just cooked overnight!- made a wrap 130, with filling servings of warm potato 150 and corned beef 300. so good. perfect way to start today !! 600 iced coffee 50.

10:45am snack: protein nut butter that i'm starting to enjoy again, in my fridge. 100

I am 100% really glad i took today off!

11:45am lunch: cooked cabbage from atop the corned beef 50, a few cuts of carrot and silky slow cooked potato with skin on always - i never peel my veggies!150, more tasty corned beef (wish i cooked it an hour longer, next time for at least 11 hrs on low) 250. 450

...so tasty!

snacks around workout chocolate and banana 200

hungry, close to 4pm after workout, a healthier type of bar 250, also almond milk with a splash of coffee, included in total.

having dinner wirh parents tonight so i'm praying they order veggies (prob takeout - not planning to bring anything of my own...).

chinese veg and tofu soup 100?, 2 jumbo shrimp 50, lots of saucy veg 300 and some tofu 100, rice 150, fried noodles 100, and dessert 50 850 yup tasted great 

2500, I did exercise and at least I ate less all week ...

7day avg: 2050 - which i'm happy with.



I used the elliptical for 20 min at gym and when i got off, my legs felt like rubber omg! i really suck at cardio right now! i'm glad i tried it out and did it there. i also did a leg strength workout before it....leg day is complete and with a little cardio!


I could have cooked the corned beef a hair more, but it is still good. it would have been more tender if i cooked it one more hour, but i figured that part out after i removed most of everything - the soup and all the ingredients - from the crockpot.

11am: pick up rx distance glasses ; then...I plan to do my leg workout / walk a little bit at park if it doesn't rain - otherwise i'll maybe do the elliptical for 30min at gym

1:30pm I don't have a long list of things to do today. I'm planning to get fruits/veggies, wraps/bread item, iced coffee & KOMBUCHA today instead of over the weekend shopping.  

I need cash for tomorrow to pay for my hair highlights :)

3:30pm-4:30pm (or earlier) Lastly, laundry, including my bed sheets. will be good to get everything done before heading over to my parents.

Friday night and Saturday:

After that, i'm headed to see my mom and dad for dinner and to sleep over for tomorrow when my dad is out of town so i can help my mom in the morning thru early afternoon tomorrow, before i get my hair done also Saturday late afternoon:)


I want to clean the bathroom & do an upper body workout at the gym :))

Progress as of today: -0.5 lbs lost so far, only 1.5 lbs to go!

legcramps on 04/05/2019:
Great plan for the weekend! How nice that you have today off; looks like you plan to spend it wisely!

That corned beef sounds really good. I just had the last of the pork roast that I made in my slowcooker/crockpot. Those things are THE BEST invention ever LOL.

Horn_of_plenty on 04/05/2019:
yes, i have used this day well ;) didn't get to the supermarket, but got everything else done :)

thinkpositive on 04/05/2019:
Tasty menu. NIce of you to help your mother this weekend.

horn_of_plenty on 04/06/2019:
Yes ;)

Donkey on 04/06/2019:
Dinner sounds like it was delicious! I hope you had a good time with your folks. Maybe it's a nice thing to have some time with just Mom?

Well done on the calories! And I love the elliptical - that's one thing I miss about the gym, but if/when I join a gym again, I'm going to make the weights my focus.

Can't wait to see your new hair-do!

horn_of_plenty on 04/06/2019:
I think I’ll try to get to the gym for the elliptical - even 20 minutes yesterday was more than enough on it ! I def need to work on my cardio! I got off and my legs were rubber noodles !

My mom is a bit rigid so a bit stressful but we are getting along well today yes ! Catching up on doing laundry / towels / sheets :) so when my dad comes home he can sleep with her in a clean bed tonight !! He has a busy day for work stuff driving 2 hours each way (4hrs round trip) for a long all day event ! So I told her we should get the bedding done so he doesn’t need to do it with her tomorrow !

horn_of_plenty on 04/06/2019:

Donkey on 04/05/2019:
Lucky you! Enjoy your day off! So you understand why it's easier to do things in the evening if you know you have the next day off - that's me 100% and what I was trying to convey earlier this week.

I hope you have a really good day off!!

Horn_of_plenty on 04/05/2019:
thanks, J-donk! yeah, it became a low-stress night the minute i decided to take the next day off!

Donkey on 04/06/2019:
Oh I bet it was an immediate drop in stress - I totally relate to that! :)

Horn_of_plenty on 04/07/2019:
IMMEDIATE is right! best decision ever. wish i could have a few more nights like that this month LOL LOL LOL!

Weight: 114.5

i weighed myself and was higher than usual today (above 115 slightly)!? lol weird...despite 2 weeks of lower cals. it takes time ;) but i do feel i am that weight, for sure. it's probably bc i am NOT doing much cardio. no worries ;) i'm eating better, etc. so things will improve.

Home kombucha 70

Breakfast: wrap so tasty i like these 130, cream cheese 100, lox 50, coffee 50, chocolate 50 ;)

snack: bar 200 that i spit out, too fake tasting and tasty almonds. ,

11:40 more chocolate 100

Lunch: tasty from home: chicken fingers breaded 200, veggies in soup from freezer were same as i left them! yum with some bone broth :) 50, 100, fruit  (extras in office from myself / coworker ;) ) 450 tops

Snack: chocolate, why not. 100, also drinking lots of water.

Plum abs yogurt followed by light ice cream 450-500

 and bedtime and chips 150


edit- no cooking tonight and heading to bed early around 7:30/8pm - tired and heading in for some rest tonight - decided not to do any other activities...i laid in bed after dinner and couldn't sleep, so took a sleeping pill which nocked me out 20 min later. waking up of course i was drowsy but the sleep was worth it.

Early dinner when i am home: i think more of the Purdue breaded chicken and in a wrap ?


Tonight: rest night on exercise, but i will walk a little bit - one mile of the way home!..

it's beautiful weather, so i'll walk a nice amount and be home early enough to do the other things i have planned.


Progress as of today: -0.5 lbs lost so far, only 1.5 lbs to go!

legcramps on 04/03/2019:
Have a good one today!

Horn_of_plenty on 04/04/2019:
Thank you. I feel like i'm a bit busier than usual right now, hence why i am not commenting as often as i'd like to on entries. sorry...it's going to be like this i think until May.

Donkey on 04/04/2019:
I was feeling a bit bloated a couple of weeks ago as well, when my numbers were around 135. Whatever that was, it's gone now, back to my normal self. Your doing so well with food; you'll be back in the comfort zone soon, too.

horn_of_plenty on 04/04/2019:
this time, i'm not bloated at all, but the weight gain is simply the large calorie averages over the past 1-2 months finally showing on the scale ;)...you are right, i'll make it back to the comfort zone ;)

added cardio, when it happens, will help me.

Horn_of_plenty - Tuesday Apr 02, 2019
(counting calories/walking/elliptical/weights)
Weight: 114.5

1900 4-day avg...i weighed myself and was higher than usual today!? lol weird. 

sick of reading on paris, taking a full break this week to read a book on Jazz, given to me by Rosie, the one who i stayed with for TWO STRAIGHT weeks back in Janaury in Florida! :)


Today i didn't stay in bed long & i also realized that yesterday i didn't use my "light" alarm clock in addition to the regular. It does help to get up when the room is also getting brighter (i have one of those alarm clocks too and use it in addition to the radio). I feel good not rushing around my apt and had so much time that i even foam rolled my upper thighs for a little while. no  rushing. nice.  Plus, i can leave 10min early if i so wish to! - yes, i wish to!

Doing separate leg days is probably working out for the BEST :) because it gives me a shorter, better managed, workout and it gives me another "assignment" during the week. I become motivated while i'm doing it to make lunch / prep for the week (during short breaks between exercises) and it prevents me from spending the night on the couch.

however, if i'm doing legs, it's another day i'm not "walking home." as when i walk home, that's an exercise in itself and i don't do it before my longer upper body workouts or before leg days.

but, like leg cramps exercises, she doesn't do them all very often each week. instead, it's several different training types some not more than 2 days. 

my approach now is moving towards Leg Cramp's approach. 

April Plan:

3 days a week of upper

2 days a week of legs

2 days a week of walks (even if one is shorter / the other longer) - this is enough for now.


kombucha: just a few slow sips while watching tv and not in a rush - how nice! n/a

Breakfast: coffee with stevia and milk 50, good fats bar 200. i'm off my sugar rushes and mocha coffees. i'm in "slim down" mode lately and even today when i should feel so slim as i didn't eat much last night, i still feel fat where the actual fat is...if that makes sense. and i want to lessen it a hair before paris. this is working :)

Snack: wrap 130, cream cheese 100, and lox 70. 300. and dark chocolate sugar free 100


lunch: very light, from home. tomorrow i will start with something else (bought purdue breaded chicken fingers to enjoy the rest of this week !) tofu 100, cauliflower 200 crust, fresh small pepeprs 100 tops. 450.  with fruit

later sucking candy

Snacks fruit and iced coffee 150

during exercise: aminos / coconut water mixes 

after exercise: i don't know, but i can't see myself indulging in anything too huge! my body is really not craving big volumes right now. after the previous three weeks of bathroom troubles, i'm happily back on track and enjoying it that way. Purdue chicken fingers and extra mustard soooo goood just made 300

YES, having a few extra minutes in the morning to just relax makes a big difference! I have a hard time with this too, because I like my sleep and I like to sleep as much as possible in the mornings before work. So when I do get up, it's a bit of a mad rush to get ready. Those extra minutes to have a nice breakfast, do a little stretching, etc. give us a whole different outlook on the day :) I should really start doing this too.

when i am not rushed in the morning, i generally do feel better at work when i get there...and i don't need as much time to "wake up" once at work.

I'm glad your workouts are 'working out' for you! Nice to see your plan for April; it looks perfect to me.

The workout plan for April looks good! I hope you will write an evaluation at the end of the month.

Looks like a good food day too!

Did you not have a good sleep? Or not enough sleep? It suck to wake up on a Monday not feeling refreshed - it can affect the whole week.

Glad to hear about your day yesterday; sounded like a lot of fun! I've watched Gangs of New York, and I thought it was such an interesting movie. Love to hear about history, especially things like that and how things have changed over the years.

Are you planning a workout today? Sounds like you just need to get home and relax.

Horn_of_plenty on 04/01/2019:
i think i'm just a bit stuck in the routine and in general weekends have been different with seeing my mom which is good, but i'm having more active weekends also and i think i just don't feel refreshed at wakeup come monday. On weekends i sleep in a little and i wouldn't change that for a thing! ;) i just think i need more sleep.

that movie sounds good.

i just have a short workout, legs. if i concentrate, i can get it done in around 45 min or maybe less.

Donkey on 04/02/2019:
That's the caveat with busy weekends. Fun to do, but can be draining. But life is meant to be lived, I guess. No regrets!

horn_of_plenty on 04/02/2019:
YES, J-donk that's it!

I have had a lot of years doing nothing and habits of doing nothing on weeknds for years. so it's always something i fall back to, though i wish it wasn't so...hard to escape my past ;)

then again, i like a low key weekend here and there...so...it is what it is..

i do hope though that as i train and do more, my body starts to get more used to it!
