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

9am-11am: plum 50, seltzer with stevia, S'mores mighty muffin with probiotics 210, sf strawberry banana jello 40 (had the package = 2 cups), one small serving kombucha 30: 330-350 good.

Noon: wrap with sausage 200, chips 120: 320.

gonna shower, do laundry & study for Notary test on 10/13/16.  Studied for 45 min which is good...will keep reading over notes on Sunday.

2pm: plum 50, red pepper 50, chips 150. 250

Snack: a small protein bar 150

1050 before dinner and get together at my friend's place for trip planning...

At Renee's: tons of veggies at least 200, seltzer with stevia, some roasted sweet potatoes around 200?, and a big chicken sausage with some feta in it...can't be healthy at most 400.

Was home at midnight & very proud of myself for not eating when i was home. We did eat late at around 8pm which is why i was able to hold off. Took a sleeping pill, fell asleep on couch by like 1am. Then woke around 3am and went to my own bed and slept till 9am. NICE.

Around 2050. good.


For the past month or so, calorie avg has been a bit higher in the 1900's instead of 1700's or 1800's. I am feeling like i gained a little. or i'm bloated & PMSing. Or both. UGH!


Partied again last night after work a couple coworkers and I went to happy hour...happy hour is good because it's early and not out till all hours of the night! ...thankfully home by 10pm & in bed shortly after. lol so no shower since Thursday night! haha...gonna do that shortly. it's almost 11am now.  

I slept from around 11pm (or maybe closer to 10pm) until around 9am. excellent sleep, especially because i only slept 4hrs most the night before !  

Food was good at Happy hour...actually healthy. I ate a lot because it was so good. Lots of veggies, in some tasty garlic butter sauce & shrimp and pepper kabobs. Excellent food. It's a Dominican / Caribbean place by my work called Crazy Willy's.  It's an excellent bar & restaurant. Oh...and you can't beat the Happy Hour prices either!...so cheap for SO MUCH FOOD. Others paid only $30 each for tons of food and drinks...mine was $40 but so worth it ... 2 drinks, a side, a meal, and extra veggies on top of that. decent for it, i'd say.


Progress as of today: 4 lbs lost so far, only 3 lbs to go!

Sounds like you had a great time last night after work. I am also glad that you got a good night of sleep that is a full night of sleep something you struggle with. Have a great weekend J.

hollybelle on 09/17/2016:
Wow, that's good happy hour food. Glad you had a good time.

7day avg = 1930/day = decent!//


Showered around 10:30pm last night. And that was my last shower till tonight or who knows maybe Saturday morning....

Finally went to bed at 2am.  Up before 6am. 

Got dressed sorta quickly once i got my act together. no shower. did it last night.

got to work 5 min late & cooked shredded cabbage that i forgot to bring home last ngiht in the microwave at work & then put makeup on in the work bathroom. there's free lunch for my dept and i feel TOTALLY UNSOCIAL. Like i want to talk to anyone!? i want to be left alone. I'm fed up. Angry. Life is annoying me...with needing to do things that I don't want to do or care to do........I'm NOT HAPPY and don't feel i have enough freedom lately. 



Was overly pissed off at my mom / parents / life situation concerning the planning of when we are getting together for the upcoming Jewish holidays. I had asked my family early on so that I would also be able to spend the long weekend (4 days I get for the Jewish holidays which begin in October) with also my friends as I'm single and like to see my friends as I don't see them nearly enough.

It can go easily a month between seeing the majority of them. I have few and it stinks to not see them enough but I'm content with my schedule - USUALLY - and will not give the gym up or quit a session over USUALLY seeing friends (would rather do my routine & feel good about my body in clothes, etc.) 

My mom didn't agree with my thinking (but I am an adult, 34, and am totally entitled to my own decisions). She told me I shouldn't choose getting together (the plan was apple picking no less - big event - for my friend Christine's 34th bday which she really wanted with two other people at least...) mom told me i shouldn't be placing a get together above being a JEW! I don't agree at all. We celebrate usually one full day / night together out of the 2 nights. It's a 4 day weekend.  I may just decide now that's all i'll be doing - I'm sick of coming up with any more plans. I had to cancel with my friends bc of reasons i understand on the day my mom chose and she does the majority of cooking / work for the holiday - i will help...but still i do get her...it stinks it had to be sunday - the day we were going to go apple picking.

Apple picking can't be easily switched to another day. EVERYONE is busy and it's complicated. Driving out to apple pick is far...i don't want to do it the night before a week of work (we were thinking to rechedule on Monday, Columbus Day, when we're off...but i'd prefer not to be out late before Tuesday work...) I am sick of running around...

So whatever. I don't care for any more planning. My dad's bday is 10/8 and i told my mom that since she insists i do as she pleases and not to make any plans for myself or schedule my own life, that she can tell me what we are doing & what day for my dad...that i'm out of it.  I'm seriously done.

Had an argument with my mom over phone texting about this.

I told her i'm adult and not a bad jew if i choose to see my friends one day of the weekend or if I choose to split the holiday over the religious stuff with my family and then hanging out with my friends. It's a4-day weekend. I don't get too many of those. I'm an adult & can choose how & what I'm going to do with my freedom and adult social life outside of work.

My mom didn't have a good comeback and actually ended with saying good night. Sorry but I'm SO RIGHT this time & I know it. 

And now my plans are cancelled. I had contacted my family FIRST regards to the holidays because i wanted to make sure i'd be Apple picking with friends too...apparently even early on planning didn't work out since my mom and sister were not in agreement with getting together Monday instead of Sunday. which i understand...but i thought we were all off the 4 days. Maybe they work Tuesday? i don't know. doubt it though.

Progress as of today: 4 lbs lost so far, only 3 lbs to go!

grannyannie on 09/16/2016:
Sorry life sucks right now. Hope it improves for you soon. Being angry isn't good for health - I know, I'm pissed off at my soon to be ex daughter in law right now.

puddles on 09/16/2016:
You can pick your friends but you can't pick your family.... Everything will work out it usually does do not waste all your energy on negativity it will drive you crazy let it play out. I just wish I still had my mom to argue with but I don't and I miss that all the bad times are all unimportant now but sure wish I could have one more round at it with my understanding of today older and wiser... lol Have a great day J.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 09/16/2016:
Thank you for the wise advice, much appreciated :-D

hollybelle on 09/16/2016:
Ah, there are so many opportunities to be mad in life - fight back - fool the dark forces and be happy anyway - that'll teach 'em not to mess with us! That is my new (old???) motto and I'm going to try to live up to it. :-)

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

600 before lunch. 

head was feeling foggy and just drained this week it seems. 

digestion iffy because i got up late and didn't have time to complete my routine so all stuffed up at work stinky....and may even stop home before the gym tonight as it's basically on the way....to use the bathroom. i hate feeling this bloated way. maybe bc TOM is coming....

just feeling pulled and torn. - Feeling like YES, i am an adult....but i have no say over most of what's going on in my life - work and family negative stuff went on today. but it's all over. tomorrow's a new day & looking forward to the weekend.


I also gained a little weight.  but maybe most of the weight is bloating from my period coming in like 4 days? could be. I also have been having more salt i think.

definitely bloated today. even my jeans are tight.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

gym tonight.

before gym: plum, small granola bar, energy drink 150

250 after gym....

1600. today.

The workday day ended poorly. I worked OT 2.5 hours and didn't know i would be until i was asked to - and it took me that long to finish my work (partially bc i had been working slowly - thankfully i left the office for a 10 min walk in the afternoon around 3pm - glad i did that now). I worked 11 hours today. FAR TOO MUCH for me. We don't get paid anymore in my company for Overtime Hours, but we can bank the hours and use them later - which I AM satisfied with & don't mind not being paid as I def want / need to leave early sometimes.  

 1870 - 6day avg...excellent.

Progress as of today: 4 lbs lost so far, only 3 lbs to go!

Hi F. The gym was the highlight and better part of my day. Extremely strong workout. Strong endurance also.

TIME OF MONTH. lol...something you are freed from hopefully.

Food was good today :)

Happy to bring the calories down. Tomorrow lunch is being ordered, but i'll be prepared with extra cabbage i think...it's already in the fridge prebagged and shredded but i gotta microwave it - smell up the work kitchen! i was supposed to bring it home tonight & cook it here at home but forgot.

Monday Morning Edit: after going to the gym last night, I did feel better. It wasn't worth it to skip. Getting good sleep helped me have a good workout. I must remember this - if i'm going to have a full day, i can at least get good sleep and try not to skip workouts on the weekend. Overall, a successful weekend no doubt.

And i've realized that even if i wake up tired, i can definitely get re-energized by later in the afternoon!


Sunday entry:

Yesterday (Saturday) was a success. But today i'm feeling extremely tired / run down.  My legs feel tired. My left ankle is so-so.  I want to skip the gym later. I don't have the energy for it & also for a full week ahead. So yeah, i have to skip it.

Lately, I'm skipping the gym too often.  I think i skipped it again recently - yes, last weekend i skipped it too. Maybe if I do feel better tonight but it's sorta doubtful now.

First, I gotta shower  & do laundry.

Maybe i should just try to get one simple thing done at a time...

If i go to gym, leg exercises will obviously be skipped because my legs are already tired. I could do a shortened session. And more sitting while lifting weights or something. YES. I will try....but first i'm thinking to get this laundry done. Chances are HUGE that the laundry room downstairs has a lot of people - but i will def do my laundry before gym.

Also, if laundry room is full - i'll use the opportunity to go out and buy extra food for the week & buy some kombucha. that's all. the place is 5-10 minutes away. might as well. but again...one thing at a time.

...need to shower. it's already noon.

I woke up around 9-10 and finally got outta bed 10. Had a humongous breakfast, more healthy than not:

Healthy oatmeal with chia and flax 210, made with water but still very creamy from chia i guess, i added stevia, was craving a banana so included it 140, then had a complete package of jello lemon flavor that i made last night with 100 cal of strawberries mixed into it 50. total breakfast is approx 500.

then i fell asleep almost 2 hours more after breakfast....

Noon: 2 big servings of siracha flavor veggie chips 250-300.

750 approx so far...just need to shower lol...i will def need caffeine if i go to the gym. thinking about it. ANOTHER IDEA IS TO SHOWER, DO LAUNDRY, AND ONLY GO TO THE GYM AND FORGET ABOUT EVERYTHING ELSE. ALSO A DECENT OPTION.

2pm lunch: leftovers chicken 150, salad with dressing 200. 350....and dessert around 2:45pm was two pieces of this awesome toaster bread (really thick & only tastes good toasted) with a little cream cheese 250.

1350..will be going early to gym around 3:30pm after i take up my clothes from the dryer. really tired day feeling like I have a hangover :( but i didn't drink. just really tired.

and 3:30pm - fiber one key lime cheesecake bar with monster energy drink sugar free of course. 150.

1500 before GYM (i am going)...sore throat is getting better....hope to keep it this way!...oh i had squash...i knew i forgot something! 50

1550 before gym...is what it is.

dinner was also healthy but at least 550-600.

total for Sunday is 2150. too darn high again, but healthy & i ate in moderation.

average for Sat & Sunday is approx 2200.


Progress as of today: 4 lbs lost so far, only 3 lbs to go!

You should do what you think is right - really no wrong answers. Enjoy your day whatever it brings.

Horn_of_plenty on 09/11/2016:
This was great advice. you made me smile & realize that all my choices are fine decisions. THANK YOU. I ended up enjoying this day more.

hollybelle on 09/12/2016:
I was tired today, but had a goal of walking 5 miles again today. I didn't want to go because I was tired, but I sent anyway and just walked slower than usual - 4 miles - and then walked another mile later in the day with my granddaughter in the wagon! Anyway - I think sometimes it's about being flexible and getting it done, or taking a rest and to get it done later or tomorrow.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 09/12/2016:
I totally debated not going Sunday & going Monday....but realized it wouldn't be worth it...because the end result would end up being MOST probably a skipped day....so i was flexible...and did plan / know i'd be tired. for now on, i'll be stronger mentally about it...i'll realize "YES, i'm going to be tired, YES I KNOW..." and realize i'll still go anyways.

at least i didn't have very much to do Sunday as like i said - i planned for being tired. the extra sleep helped.

OhioRaven on 09/12/2016:
When you get my age (over 21), you're tired Most of the time. But just getting started gets the ball rolling and you start feeling like you can roll a little longer. Have a Great day, HP.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 09/12/2016:
SUCH GREAT ADVICE, OR. you are so darn right that as we get older, it seems we deal better and better when things get tougher and tougher. I need to toughen up more, thank you!!! <3

im71 on 09/12/2016:
HOP, I applaud you. You didn't WANT to do some of those things, but you powered through and did them anyway. Good job! Have a great day today!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 09/12/2016:
Thank you, 71.

In the past, i gave into laziness / giving up temptations so much easier & quicker than i do now...

I am learning, at 34 years old just turned it on 9/9/16.

I hope to continue with my approach of not giving up as easily....especially when i enter the NYPD academy...i hope to maintain my lean physique and healthy eating / exercise goals.

I have learned that i need to party / socialize less...in order to reach my own goals. :-D

Horn_Of_Plenty on 09/12/2016:
Thank you for the praise, it made me feel GREAT to see someone notice my drive.

I am totally here to help you and the rest of the DDErs and also to gain guidance from you all.

It's a wonderful site!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 09/12/2016:
Seems #115 is hard enough...i know for a fact, based on previous experience around 10 yrs ago, that it took serious commitment to maintain #112. So, I like to keep this goal lower, in hopes to get there & have a happy medium around #115 and when i reach #112...that's it...no lower.

Parade was great but happy to go home now. Went into city with friends they drove us and we took the subway from queens into NYC. Going home I am taking, right now sitting on it, the express bus from NYC to where I live in Queens with my parents Bc they parked by me to go home. I will walk from bus to my apt - 10 min.

Was in city from around 11:30 till 5. Long day! Parade was nice and got a hat :-)

3pm: Went to the Meatball Shop 74th & 2nd Ave in NYC with my mom&dad and sister and her husband also came out for my Birthday lunch. I had a slider of beef burger with pesto sauce small bun 400 tops, green cooked Swiss chard very nice 150, heavier sautéed eggplant and sauce of course 200?, some of dad's food 100?, and tastes of ice cream and mom's lentil burger 100. Hopefully not more than 950.

Good morning birthday girl wishing you all the best on this special day. Any big plan for the weekend and celebrations?

Last weekend was party-central for me :-). Tomorrow I'm marching in the NYC Labor Day parade, just walking with the Electrical Union Local #3 & need to wake up early to be there - so tonight will be an early night for me. I doubt I'll get out early because 2 of the most important coworkers here that do similar tasks as I do are out (one on vaca & one is sick). I am happy overall & glad to go home & chill. Even did a small food shopping last night so I really am able to go home, take a sleeping pill & catch up on some rest - i went to bed late last night & slept around 4-5 hours so tonight i'm looking forward to resting my body.!!!

Overall, I'm feeling really, really great.

My mom may join my dad at the parade - if so, I'll eat with them after it's finished for lunch in the city to celebrate my bday - then go home & relax - maybe laundry on Saturday while home :-D so i don't have to do it Sunday lol...

And Sunday = gym & maybe small food shopping....

No big plan. And very happy about it. I'd say a parade is big anyways!

Happy Friday Fran & thanks for your kind words! So appreciated!

It was the New York City (Manhattan) Labor Day Parade...definitely a big deal for the labor unions & stuff. :-D I was happy to go because the past 3 years i had an excuse of my legs bothering me due to shin splints / tendonitis.

This year a am SO MUCH STRONGER and almost there to being as close to 100% as I will be by the summer----i was so happy to go to the parade...because I was ABLE TO. I am so thankful to G-D i was able to walk in it...really :)
