(counting calories/walking/elliptical/weights)
Weight: 110.0

18.00 April Sunshine Hours; 

24.50 January "Sunshine Hours";  20.25 February Hours in the Sun/Outside/Cardio/Commute/Moving!  28.75 March Sunshine Hours :-D

May 16th: (if not paid previously without a request by me), request pay for both 1 unused vacation day as well as 1.5 sick days that i didn't take and was accrued by me for last cycle.


Lookahead!  Monday, 4/19/21 - 

Upper body in AM - DONE! with no breaks and doing it fast, it's a 30 min routine now, my upper body. but done in the evening, i take breaks, rest, do other things during the workout and it gets longer. by doing it in the morning before work, i just look to do it as quick and efficiently as possible, it's actually just a 30 min routine :).  I do not prefer a morning workout except if there's no other suitable time to do it. This year may include some early morning workouts, but, i do not think i will make it a definite pattern or routine yet for only morning workouts.

Monday Eats:

 2 bananas 240 (needed it, did workout in AM and really wanted to have one at home, was extra hungry at work), coffee 30, bar 230...500..

11am snacks coconut granola choc covered bar love these, inexpensive also. 150.

12:45pm lunch: microwavable healthy vegetarian edamame/quinoa/veggies teriyaki style, 400 clementines 50, black coffee if i want it...diet coke from fridge free while i sit in this location, i'm drinking the free drinks!

snacks: 2 chocs, but, overcounted calories above as didn't finish the banana or bar at breakfast. so, these calories are already counted above, for the chocs.

dinner: leftovers - see if the other half the mix salad is still good?, have with tofu as i'm not in the mood for heavy salmon as the salad is 300 cal on it's own (we'll see if i actually eat it or throw it out), freeze the cooked salmon from Mom before it goes bad.

salad with wanton crispy noodles and dressing few almonds 300, tofu with a little sauce 200, rice 200, some dried jackfruit 100, 800

1900.....

My evening plans:

  •  buy bananas after work at supermarket on the way home - would have prefered to leave work at lunch, buy them, bring them back and leave at work, but, i'm not going to have people say i left and took a long lunch...there's too much craziness still going on at work to deal with more crap.
  • Evening Shower, Bed early tonight, not doing any hw or anything for the course, told instructor i'd do it for Wednesday, need my rest tonight. Hopefully, no OT will be worked today bc i need some rest tonight.  I wonder where my boss is? haven't heard from him this AM and i've been at work almost 1 hour - seems he's working from home today. fine by me!

 


Tuesday, 4/20/21:

Evening plans:

Finish work for Bankruptcy Course, couldn't finish it all Sunday night, unfortunately, but it's not a priority to be perfect doing this course while working, it's just to learn the material & i did! :)

  • Test 6 - "Bankruptcy Rules" - will hopefully finish this Monday night, turning it in late.

Wed, 4/21/21:

Turn in timesheet with notes on it, do not delete my OT notes - if i have to, keep track just in my emails, fine.

 

 


Sat 4/24/21 -Sunday 4/25/21:

if time permits: ivermectin shots for other two guinea pigs for mites so I can in the future house all guinea pigs together (other affected guinea pig's skin has healed and hair begun to grow back now) ...just need time to do it without other weekend plans too bc it gets to be too much for me if it's a lot of running around and no relax time! 

 

 


Friday, 5/7/21:second dose covid-19 vaccine after work.

 

Saturday, 5/8/21:NYC Walking Tour of "High Bridge".  Will take subway in. It was $30 but it's bringing me a learning experience of a place i'm not familiar with and 1.5 hours of exercise. Bring it on!....taking a chance on this, the day after my shot the evening before. I don't want to miss this tour & can relax Sunday as MOM knows i'm getting a shot on Friday night as well.

Sunday, 5/9/21 Mother's Day - parents know i'm getting the shot Friday night before this; so; may go see them the following weekend...that's the good thing about family, we can probably celebrate Mother's day the following weekend....i already gave my mom her mother's day gift on a previous weekend, 4/17/21...so, i do not plan to see my mom this weekend. it's just too much with getting the shot and doing the NYC tour...she knows i love her, i'll call her, and i already give her a gift and told her it was a mother's day gift (two packages ground coffee - 1 from Ethiopia and i forget where the other was from).


Sunday, 5/30/21:1-4pm Queens Farm Volunteering on the County Farm!

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

Jacky82020 on 04/19/2021:
Eating a banana a day. Slice & freeze and topped with those sugar free syrups most commonly used in coffee. Yum!

horn_of_plenty on 04/19/2021:
sounds delicious! i used to not want to eat bananas bc they were "high carb and calorie," but ever since i started eating one most days, i have been more regular using the bathroom! for realz.


Jacky82020 on 04/19/2021:
Always liked them. Need some carbs, never good at keto or all protein, although I do a lot of protein drinks Also cheese everyday.

My PCP says “bananas go both ways”. Meaning helpful as a laxative and to prevent diarrhea. LOL

horn_of_plenty on 04/20/2021:
totally yes about bananas going both ways...miracle for me!

Sun 4/18/21:

All Laundry done, will prepare some meals for the week later. Hope to do my upper body, if no time I will do it Monday morning before work just llike Friday, which worked out great. 

I could use some bananas - maybe buy a couple early Monday before work; then go to supermarket after work.

1:30 starting homework:

  • Week 6 Readings for "Bankruptcy Rules" - done at 9pm, then went to shower...hard to read it fast, today. took my time and the time flew by.DONE.
  • BB6 -  Final week Due 4/19/21! cheers! - will do this and then quit for the night on any more work. - finally finished, 11pm, DONE.

Sunday Eats:

early - clementines x2 80, couple ginger lemon candies 20. 100.

9:45am breakfast: 1 pancake from a mix someone gave me and i like it 120, coffee 30, 150...and.greek yogurt w/ berry add in 150., kombucha 50

fell asleep 12ish-1ish...

1pm lunch toasted roll 150, cream cheese 100, lox 50..300..plantain chips and coffee 250

2pm dried jackfruit 100

4pm raspberry dark chocolate 100

6-6:30pm Dinner: i hardly ever get delivery, but, didn't want to leave while still only up to the bankruptcy readings, not even the assignments, around 5:30pm. so i ordered delivery, not many options for close places as my neighborhood is strangely out of many of the restaurant's delivery zones but i found a tasty place and was lucky, the food was quite good as far as Chinese goes with not too heavy sauce and good looking presentation, i thought.  some tofu and veggies in sauce 200, 1 shrimp / veggie fried roll 300, 1 large wanton beef filling 200, i have leftovers for part of this week as well as other leftovers from previous eats in the freezer to cover all my lunches this week. 700, satisfying.

snack more of those gummies not much 50.

Donkey on 04/18/2021:
Hope you have a wonderful Sunday!

I'm a little confused. It looks like a lot of your work tasks on Friday are carrying over to this next week?? That's so nice. It made me think of the time when I worked in Acquisitions at a library. If my work didn't get done that day, that's OK, I could do it tomorrow. Now, with this job, everything is so time-sensitive and client-based.... Thank goodness I don't have to work with anything with litigation, which is always extremely time sensitive.

Horn_of_plenty on 04/18/2021:
I will follow up with you later to comment on your entries...

I'm most busy than i ever was in my life...and i know it's going to continue for the next couple years which is OK. I have learned how to prioritize my own lifestyle needs and how to maximize doing things efficiently in order to take care of my needs while working a lot of hours with a long commute. I'm up to the challenge.

as for you, i totally get the time-sensitivity, my job is actually extremely time sensitive although it doesn't look it...unfortunately, my boss keeps switching the order of my duties...and keeps prioritizing things for March as i'm trying to catch up with end of January and Februrary, so basically i keep falling behind bc my boss is pushing things out of order.

also though, a lot of my tasks repeat each month and take the course of a month, this is why there's a list that i know what's to come..therefore, some of this planning of mine is a "forecast" of my duties and how I see them prioritized. it's unfortunate that my boss isn't on the same page with me (he constantly is behind on his stuff too) and i'm being pushed to do things out of order, saving NO TIME and confusing the heck out of myself and making it so i have a thousand email reminders because everything is done in a rushed manner. i think it should level out once we are caught up and not doing things 3 months late. this is what i inherited, taking over the job in Janaury, it's hard to catch up, especially bc the owner didn't look at anything to pay until end of February...so everything is just delayed and late.

Horn_of_plenty on 04/18/2021:
my work is repetitive in the tasks i do each month, but the tasks are different (new paperwork, same idea)...so i know what's due, except my boss and the owner are choosing always to prioritize things earlier that aren't due, ahead of the ones that are. and it sucks!


Jacky82020 on 04/18/2021:
Those lemon ginger candies sound good, I saw some cinnamon gummies. They were 25 Cals each & tiny! I want a big fat gummy for 25 Cals!

horn_of_plenty on 04/18/2021:
Yes it’s 25 cals for two and are gummies. Check online it’s by Haribo they are an eclipse shape gummy flavor is lemon ginger

horn_of_plenty on 04/18/2021:
Around an inch long each


Jacky82020 on 04/18/2021:
I want a fat foot longer cinnamon gummy with no more than 50 calories!

Horn_of_plenty on 04/18/2021:
you an make your own with gelatin and stevia and flavorings.


Jacky82020 on 04/18/2021:
Is it like the kombucha? If I put one in a jar of sugar & gelatin will it reproduce and make a hundred?

Horn_of_plenty on 04/18/2021:
YES. it involves cooking stove top similar to making jello but less liquid. i once made lemon gummies, sugar free. it can be messy to make. look into it and try it, since you like a challenge.

Horn_of_plenty on 04/18/2021:
cooking and fridge (maybe freezer, i forget)


Jacky82020 on 04/18/2021:
Never in a million years! Although I do like challenges, the Natta, black garlic and kombucha were fun, but candy making has never appealed to me.

horn_of_plenty on 04/18/2021:
But you can make it sugar free


Jacky82020 on 04/18/2021:
Surprised they don’t already make sugar free ones!

Horn_of_plenty on 04/18/2021:
the candy business is soooo behind on using better sugar free substitutes that don't cause gas, bloating & diarhhea! there's so much work to be done! more inventions to be made in candyland! agreed. they do,i'm sure, and i'm sure they bloat you like a beach ball.


Jacky82020 on 04/18/2021:
Best I stick with my Hershey’s from the 1920s. And a few hard candies a day. I don’t and for bloat up and float away. LOL

Horn_of_plenty on 04/18/2021:
LOL...yes, bloating is the worst...it means you can't go anywhere without having to F.A.R.T.


coffee&calories on 04/18/2021:
There’s a sugar free brand called Smart Sweets and I have no problem with them! The whole package used to be 80 calories but I think I noticed a change recently, maybe 120 now? Lots of flavours, really good :-)

Horn_of_plenty on 04/18/2021:
tell Jacky about 'em! yes, i have bought them plenty of times, no problems just as you say! i like them, too. but i ate them sooo much over pandemic that i currently do not want them! ha!

Is this a big company? How many ppl do you work with?

horn_of_plenty on 04/16/2021:
It is not a big company. around 150 electricians, maybe less now bc of pandemic and events like that.

There's around 25 people total in the main office as well as a few other managers (maybe up to 10 of them) mostly working in the field now or from home.

so like 35 people in the office, TOPS. 150 electricians, Tops.

small company, and those numbers in the office include the owners, 3, that work in the office.

Looks like a busy day ahead of you! I can't believe I didn't comment on yesterday's entry - the Thai food sounds delicious!

Did you add the 20 minute walk to your routine?

horn_of_plenty on 04/15/2021:
i've never been this "real busy" at work in my life. it's nice. one day i hope to be compensated for my work appropriately with a raise.

:)

I did get the walk in, even though i went home late and i needed to notarize a neighbor's stuff, i still had enough time to have a 20min walk and let the neighbor know i'd be over his apt a little bit later. it was good to get the walk in and was a good amount of time, no overdoing. :)

i have so many thai leftovers :) i am not really ashamed that i do not cook, i know there's plenty like me in NYC! i would if i wanted to use my time that way, but i do not right now!

Is that show still on, Bear? My 600 pd life. Seemed they always had the same episodes. I liked Dr. Now

Good luck at work today! I'm impressed that you got the legs workout in this morning. Keep chipping away at the BK homework!

horn_of_plenty on 04/13/2021:
my legs workouts take just about 10 minutes :)

also, i am excited for the work to be done next weekend :) i will then move onto a different use of my time on the weekends and not take any more days off unless something extraordinary comes up during Spring as I've taken a bit of them in March and yesterday. so it's time i come to work everyday :)


KathyBlue on 04/13/2021:
oh that walking tour sounds intriguing, let us know how was it! Take it easy after the vaccine though, some people had some effects so if you feel anything just reconsider the exercise if needed.

horn_of_plenty on 04/13/2021:
If i feel really sick, i'll take a loss of $30 and not go on the walk. :) i registered for the walk before i had the date for the 2nd vaccine dose...i will try to go on the walk, sleep after the walk!

thank you for caring and insisting i take it easy....i will do that for the rest of that weekend xoxo


Jacky82020 on 04/13/2021:
Your job sounds as boring AF! Is it so? Or is it just me with my wildly divergent work history/interests?

horn_of_plenty on 04/13/2021:
i would have to say, there's a LOT of people doing this type of desk job work. I'm glad at least mine is quite everchanging ...there's always work coming in, thank gosh.

for me, work is just to pay bills and live happily enough. :-D

for me work is NOT to get rich off of. i'd never be a good self-boss...i'd never want to own my own company or be an investor, so, i will hopefully learn what i can here at this company, but move forward in the future out of this company!


Jacky82020 on 04/13/2021:
My brothers does really boring CPA work and enjoys it. He does like all the money! Owns a second house at the lake, boats & takes good care of his kids & grands.

For me, the stock market is to make as much $$$ as possible. I donate bigly to 3 animal rescue groups, one in Africa, one in Colorado and a local cat rescue. Investing is exciting! Bought more EBS today, premarket. Significant dip due to pause of J&J vaccine. Up already. My Moderna stock is doing well too.

horn_of_plenty on 04/13/2021:
good luck with your stocks, yeah, i haven't studied it and not spending money there. maybe in future :)


Jacky82020 on 04/13/2021:

 12.00 April Sunshine Hours; (hour of sunshine added for driving out to Target and walking around, shopping there!)

24.50 January "Sunshine Hours";  20.25 February Hours in the Sun/Outside/Cardio/Commute/Moving!  28.75 March Sunshine Hours :-D

May 16th: (if not paid previously without a request by me), request pay for both 1 unused vacation day as well as 1.5 sick days that i didn't take and was accrued by me for last cycle.


Lookahead!:  Monday April 12: Vacation Day #1 :-D mostly a chily, rainy day spent mostly home doing my homework which makes me Happy :D

SO THANKFUL NOT TO BE AT WORK TODAY, AROUND THE EVIL PAYROLL LADY and just to in a negative environment. So glad for yesterday & today's downtime. Will go back to work much more relaxed tomorrow...and with a vision to just do my job and trying much harder not to take things personally. And to say as LITTLE as possible to the owners as they don't accept my thoughts as another adult and see me more as a child, although i'm turning 39 this year. If i have to, I will remind the owner that i'm not in my 20's and that i'm almost 40. I will use this if i HAVE to. because he's unfortunately not aware of it.  I hope not to have to use that statement, but I will if he continues to say anything about me being "new..." or anything related. because "new" is now being associated with "young," as i can tell.  so, if i have to bring my age into the mix, i will.  Most employed are more late 40's-60's and that's the reason for so many difficulties and confusions moreso at work.  There are a small amount younger than me, but i obviously don't fall into the 50+ crowd...so there's that - where i'm grouped with the younger crowd and any misconceptions that age group gets in the workplace. 

Tuesday, i'm heading in with an open mind, yes, but i'm also not going to walked all over.   I'm being paid LOW. and being treated Lowly, so, at this point, I have nothing more to lose besides my job. I'll just tread carefully, but will not be fully walked all over. I just can't, not now, not at 38. I'm not a kid and i'm not going to stand to be treated constantly like one. So, i'll hold back, hold my thoughts inside, answers brief to owners, and just try my best to hold myself together come Tuesday. If the owners ask me to do things that aren't ready and I can foresee or I knew it wouldn't be possible, i'll just say it in as short a sentence as i can and not involve my feelings, just the facts.

Enjoy your day off today! I was wondering if you had pushed hard your homework assignments done on Sunday. No need to, with an extra day to devote time to it :-)

Horn_of_plenty on 04/12/2021:
I didn't have it in me to push yesterday so i just rested up, knowing very well i'd be home an extra day to get some work in today as you said :)

Enjoy your day!


innerpeace on 04/13/2021:
I hope your day at work goes better. Have a good day. Your walking bridge tour sounds fun!


Donkey on 04/13/2021:
You might want to see how you feel after your 2nd shot before leaving for your walking tour. I've heard mixed results from those around me.

I'm hoping that you won't have to "go there" with the owner.... Is that the wisest course of action? (a sincere question, not a snarky comment)

Enjoy your day at the park! What a lovely opportunity to recharge your inner battery and focus on nature and plants. I've become terrible possessive of my weekends. My time off is VERY important to me, now.

Perhaps once your BK class is over, your overall stress levels will come down. Well, that's my hope for you anyways :-)

horn_of_plenty on 04/11/2021:
It was a good experience again planting trees.

I do think once the course is over things will feel a little differently :-) thank you for your comments


KathyBlue on 04/11/2021:
I hope you get some peace of mind over the weekend and enjoy things you love. Recharge actively and shield up for next week. <3
