Weight: 115.0

up sorta late, slept in after my alarm..

10 breakfast: life cereal one cup 160 with coconut milk 50. 210. stomach is still upset from the allulose in the low cal ice cream. will be throwing them all out because the ice cream i tried really upset my stomach all night and that isn't healthy for digestion.  The ice cream was called "z0cal" meaning like zero calories!

12:30 lunch: salad 50, over a cup of stewed eggplant, lots of sauce 300? very tasty, chips 150, kombucha!! 60 560 finally im eating some more veggies!!!!!!

3:15pm turkey, tortilla chips 200, gummies 100

 dinner salad 100, burger 250, chips 300 650


 went bike riding in evening.



decided to go out and get some kombucha before lunch, also bought a small mainated salad and stewed eggplant.


Progress as of today: -5 lbs lost so far, only 3 lbs to go!

legcramps on 07/09/2020:
That ice cream sounds horrible; i'm sorry you had such trouble after eating it.

I don't know if there are any gravel roads near you :) but gravel riding is a lot of fun - though much more difficult as compared to riding on the road or pathways. If you have a mountain bike or a bike with fatter tires, you've got the perfect vehicle for gravel!

grannyannie on 07/09/2020:
Hope you're feeling better!

bearcountrygg on 07/09/2020:
Artificial sweeteners are often a problem for me too......i would never eat them anywhere but home if you get my drift.

Donkey on 07/09/2020:
^ what Bear said. Those artificial sweeteners can wreck havoc. I kind of wish I had that issue... only recently has malitol in the protein shakes cause me bloating and discomfort. But that's it.

Constipation is my destiny....

Donkey on 07/09/2020:
Nice to see you come back to vegetables!

Good Morning!

9am breakfast: blueberries 120, life cereal 160, coconut milk 50. 350.

11am snack cookies 150, spiked seltzer (ran out of kombucha so will buy some prob today) 100

12:30pm lunch: lots of (frozen) breaded shrimp (not the best, not the worst) 300, side of veggies 50. 350 total

2:30 small glass sangria (like i said, it should be kombucha, will buy some today!) 150

this very low cal ice cream that later did a number on me, 3 numbers on me- might have to throw the rest of the pints I bought away bc the side effects are too much to deal with and not good to be eliminating so much so fast 100  sorry tmi!

dinner half burger 250, eng muffin with olive oil 250 clementine 50. No veggies as my stomach has already emptied itself 3 times in 2 hours. 550.





Goals for today in terms of assignments:

1. read ch 3 & 4 of doc prep book and write memo, try to finish this by 2pm. NOPE, wasted some time in morning and i'm just beginning the memo at 1:30pm. the goal is to finish the memo by...4pm...finally finished at 5pm.

2. delve into ch 8 & 9 of Statsky - possibly start week 4 assignments


I actually quite quickly did a scrubbing of my shower today because boy did it need it! other than that, i'm staying home, skipping leg strength exercises due to the ankle and toe issues of wanting to rest them more and not overkill.

I may do another low key bike ride tonight in order to get outside, or, i may just ride my indoor stationary bike 2-3 times today at short intervals, we'll see.

tomorrow ricky and i plan to eat thai food, so, once again, i think my goal today should be the coursework, not going out to get takeout or anything else that is somewhat distracting...so, aside from some internet browsing distractions, i will limit outside errands and stay HOME!


On another note, my hair is growing longer and driving me insane. although i'm not working, i'm thinking to get it semi-permanently straightened by someone who i know who does it by word of mouth from another friend.  I'll do it once i finish the first half to this course, most probably, or i'll wait a little longer... 

Progress as of today: -5 lbs lost so far, only 3 lbs to go!

bearcountrygg on 07/08/2020:
You sure are making great headway with the homework!!!! I know it gets tedious but it will really pay off in the end! Thai food sounds delish...ENJOY!!!

Horn_of_plenty on 07/08/2020:
exactly the same thoughts as you all around...especially on TEDIOUS. i'm sooo looking forward to getting takeout SOON!

grannyannie on 07/08/2020:
Take care of your ankle! You don't want to make things worse.

What is your favourite Thai food?

Horn_of_plenty on 07/08/2020:
usually i don't get the curries, but get dishes of veggies and protein in one of the following sauces: garlic sauce, basil sauce, ... and now i forget the other two options for sauces on the menu! and rice comes on the side. it's so healthy for the veggies and the sauces aren't too thick or sweet!

legcramps on 07/08/2020:
Sounds like a great day!

Horn_of_plenty on 07/08/2020:
yes indeed no worries at all!

grannyannie on 07/09/2020:
I like medium or mild Thai foods. Curries can be mild.

Horn_of_plenty on 07/09/2020:
yes once in awhile i get curry too!

grannyannie on 07/09/2020:
Too much artificial sugar does a number on me! I'm okay with diet pop but something like hard candy with artifcial sugar is like taking a laxative!

Horn_of_plenty on 07/09/2020:
yeah...i'm going to have to throw out the ice cream - like 5 pints - bc i cannot ship them back for a reasonable price. they have a newer type of artificial sugar in them and it caused real problems for me! diarhea 4 times during the night. so i know that's not healthy....so i will throw the rest of what i ordered away.

grannyannie on 07/09/2020:
What kind of sugar was it?

Horn_of_plenty on 07/09/2020:

grannyannie on 07/09/2020:
I'll keep an eye out for it. Haven't heard of it. I use Stevia in coffee etc. And then aspartame in diet pop which I wish they'd change.

Horn_of_plenty on 07/09/2020:
i use stevia too. i also wish diet pop would switch to something better like stevia.

grannyannie on 07/09/2020:
I wish diet pop would switch as well. Don't know why they don't. Cost maybe?

3:15pm late lunch flatbread 250, olive oil 100, hot dog 200 550. finished everything in week 3 except the Memo which i need to read further about before doing...hope to finish the Memo tonight and move onto Week 4 reading. for now, taking a break to relax until 4pm, maybe start a workout before the call and finish it quickly after the therapy call....cookies 150

6pm after workout raspberries (not great) and blueberries total 250

8-9pm: chocolate 100, turkey slices 50, leftover sweet potato chips 100, regular tortilla chips 200. 450

FINISH the week 3 test by 3pm or earlier, DONE!

4pm i have the therapist phone call till 4:45

start the memo assignment...not yet, need to do some more readings...


7pm: bike ride outdoors with Ricky

after 7pm - probably reading for my class OR FINISH memo assignment which is a very important assignment..seems Memo #1 can be submitted after week 3, so i might move onto reading for week 4...

goals: finish week 3 test = DONE!

 start week 4 work and do memo after (probably)


Paralegal Study Plan:

get week 4 finished in 3 days - Wed to Friday,  July 10th on that. (memo and week 4)

get week 5 finished in 3 days  - Sat July 11 to Monday, July 13.

Get week 6 finished in 3-5 days, try to finish by July 18th. 

then, there'll be a break for like a month for paralegal, while i take the union PM course.


the union class may start on Tuesday the 14th, but, I will have ONLY 1 more week of the first half of paralegal to do and i may just try to finish it up..

next, i'll then be able to STOP working on the paralegal course until the second half resumes later on...i will happy STOP working on it while i take the union PM course...


Progress as of today: -5 lbs lost so far, only 3 lbs to go!

bearcountrygg on 07/07/2020:

legcramps on 07/07/2020:
Up and at 'em! Happy Tuesday :)

Horn_of_plenty on 07/07/2020:
you too, legs :)

Donkey on 07/07/2020:
Wow! Way to go to finish week 3! I'm quite impressed wth your ability to focus and get it done!

So next is reading for week 4 and start writing the memo (maybe?) - is that where you're at? (I feel like I'm living this vicariously, lol)

What an EXCELLENT plan to work on paralegal now, and then take a break for the project management course when that starts.

Are you a notary public?

Horn_of_plenty on 07/08/2020:
lol donkey. thanks for reading into my situation, i hope it's not stressing you out to pay such close attention to what i'm doing ?

yes, you are right i'm now on week 4 and really, really, want to finish week 4 by Friday.

yes, hoping to not be doing two classes during the exact same weeks...want to limit the stress and the paralegal is good and all, but i don't want to have to read for it when i need to do another class! you got it.

Donkey on 07/07/2020:
^ I can't edit my comment, but I think I remember that you are, because you had to test for that. Am I correct or am I losing it?

Horn_of_plenty on 07/08/2020:
LOL you got that 100% accurately, i did take a test (which i actually took 2x the same day in case i failed once, which i did once and passed the other time)...you are def not losing it!

 happy monday...trying to not get too distracted and finish most of the week 3 assignments today...

9:30 breakfast pb on an english muffin 350. some kombucha 50. 400.

12pm cookies 150, my appetite is a bit off.

1pm lunch: hot dog 170, chips 200, spiked seltzer with stevia 100 (doing this hw....) 500

2:45pm gummies 100

5:30 early light dinner: rest of the frank from lunch on a wrap 260 with some butter 40.

8pm raspberries pint, large clementine 150

9pm dark chocolate 100

1800. good!



ankle is weak, toe still hurts, so not much on the exercise front but i may go for a bike ride later tonight. :)

home for all of today...really need to finish most of paralegal week 3 today :)

it's 5pm and i have completed approx 40% of the work to be done for week 3, got a lot left to do, will prob try to complete almost the rest of the second assignments out of 3 assignments...sorry i need to write this here....lol...every time i start to work on these assignments, i'm shocked how long they are and how long it takes to complete them!

the assignments take a VERY long time :( .... and i'm nervous because there's another class i need to take for my industry starting in a week. - but good news is this might change / shift.

took a half hour walk around 7pm back and forth to supermarket to pick up some veggies / fruit and to get out of the apt / take a break

Progress as of today: -5 lbs lost so far, only 3 lbs to go!

bearcountrygg on 07/06/2020:
I know that toe pain...yours looks exacly like mine did...and it took longer to heal that time...also had the bruising on the top of my foot like you....it will be awhile......my ankle didn't hurt though...so you may have twisted yours.....I hit the toe...jumped up and would have fallen if the dresser wasn't there to catch myself.....when you fell that probably made it worse...((HUGS))

Horn_of_plenty on 07/06/2020:
my ankle hurts because it's the other foot's ankle...and that ankle is weak in general. after i hurt my toe, i think i was overcompensating when i walked....and i was overcompensating with my weak ankle...

so the other ankle is just a side note...and makes me realize i cannot just keep walking right now like i want to, while the other toe is so injured! lol

thanks for understanding, it's def a pain!...at least i should be home anyways now, doing my work!

Donkey on 07/07/2020:
Wait until you get into legal research. Talk about time consuming!

You are doing well to get a head start on the assignments.

As long as you are not working, handling another class MIGHT be manageable... I suppose look at it as being back in college full time -?

Resting your foot now will help you heal faster in the long run.

Horn_of_plenty on 07/07/2020:
yes to everything...

i am actually trying to finish as much as i can with the paralegal course so perhaps i can just concentrate on the Project management class when it starts in 8 days. i'm actually trying to finish at least two weeks more of work so i can perhaps just do the PM course...or just do little bits of paralegal during the PM course time...

but yes, while not working, it can be done, especially because i know the first 7 weeks of the paralegal assignments and i'm trying my best to complete them mostly before the Proj man class starts in a week lol lol

thanks Donkey.

Horn_of_plenty on 07/07/2020:
i really want that paralegal certificate !

Horn_of_plenty on 07/07/2020:
also, i want that certificate ON MY LINKED IN PROFILE...and i will keep it up in general when i get it. i cannot wait to say i have a paralegal certificate.

when i'm done with my courses, perhaps i can find somewhere to volunteer at for awhile...like a law firm or like what you do...that would be 2021 goals though, not now at all. or after covid goals.

Happy Sunday!

woke up late, 10am, slept well.

snacking in morning: chocolates and kombucha and reading... 150. (will buy more kombucha soon...)

 Noon lunch half frank in half bun with one slice cheese 300, chips 200, gummies 100

3:30pm plum 50

6:30 larger dinner: large burger (like close to being a 1/2lb size) 500 cal, with a large flatbread 300, and 4 cookies 150. 950.

spiked seltzer 100



later with ricky I will buy a computer mouse at the store today bc I have been using my laptop more for the class but don't have a mouse besides on the keyboard and my wrist has had enough....so a cheap mouse in order to aid doing work on a laptop for multiple hours at a time.......sort of a waste of money, but good for doing the work, i think. DONE under $10!

also ricky may dye my hair back to my base root color, brown. DONE! so happy about this :) 


First and foremost, i'm dedicating most of the day to studying / reading the chapters of Week 3 assignments. I may even be able to start the assignments either today or def tomorrow :)  Week 3 is different, it involves the usual assignments but also the "writing of a memo" or an actual document that paralegals may write. 

luckily, weights were done yesterday and i have no intent to do any leg work today either. only some walking / biking should suffice today as my lower body doesn't need to be pushed while toe is healing anyways.

i've decided also to skip laundry (but did wash the fleeces for the guinea pigs today!) for now and there's no cooking or cleaning...concentration is on the week 3 assignments so i can finish it sort of rapidly...rapidly means in 3 days :) therefore, my goal for week 3 is to finish the assignments by TUESDAY night.

Progress as of today: -5 lbs lost so far, only 3 lbs to go!

Donkey on 07/05/2020:
I think you'll find that mouse to be the best investment for $10 you've ever made, lol. I have a mouse filter my laptop too because sometimes, a mouse works better than the touch pad.

Ricky dying your hair.... very sporting of him.

Do you get any teacher instruction on the paralegal classes? Powerpoints or online videos? Zoom?

Horn_of_plenty on 07/06/2020:
and ricky said he'd be fine to do it always for me!!!! as long as i can trim his hair! :) bonus!

loving the wireless mouse for a change.

hardly any teacher instruction, it is mostly a self-paced and reading on your own type of class. no mandatory sessions with teacher. i missed a zoom the other night, no worries though - not mandatory.

grannyannie on 07/06/2020:
You are so ambitious! How long does your course take?

Horn_of_plenty on 07/06/2020:
the course is 14 weeks and 2 7 week sessions. i hope to finish this session early...not sure if i can start the next session early? i am hoping to save some time.

KathyBlue on 07/06/2020:
Oh, exciting about the shopping and the hair dye!! :) Changing looks can be a boost of confidence and well being :) You rock, girl!

 Happy 4th!

10am breakfast: life cereal 250, coconut milk 50, currants 150. 450, kombucha little bit 50.gummies 100

1pm snack - pb on a cookie 150, seltzer...bbq later on today for a big meal in early evening.

2:30 couple choco 50



 ate well and within calories today :) good day and lots of veggies both raw and roasted at the bbq...no need to even try to count the cals now bc i know i did really well :)


today, i will have breakfast, late one, and do a weights workout. Want to do a little walking or biking outside also. Then I'm going to family in the afternoon for dinner. May not do any assignments today, we will see.

i cleaned up a little bit around the living room, got papers in order, put some paperwork in order a little. cleaned up the desk a bit. refocusing. 

no laundry today (that is tomorrow or even Monday).

no reading of the course today until this evening if i want to when i get home from visiting parents / sister / BIL / nephew...no time, i need to also move my body - lift weights, sit on indoor stationary bike i think would be good for today..light exercise.

Progress as of today: -5 lbs lost so far, only 3 lbs to go!

Donkey on 07/04/2020:
Happy 4th of July! Time with the family sounds splended! A day off from assignments might be a nice break - ? But if you're motivated to read/write, then go for it!

Horn_of_plenty on 07/04/2020:
after doing it straight many hours of yesterday, i tend to feel overwhelmed and like i need to move my body, although i woke up so groggy (i seem to be emotionally tired when i do the class one night into the next morning!?)...maybe i'm just not used to doing "work" anymore!?

yeah, i was relaxing in the morning, now weights, seems not much time to study - and the studying, well, it takes TIME! time and patience is all i need for the course, luckily i have that now!

Horn_of_plenty on 07/04/2020:
enjoy the day with your family too!

grannyannie on 07/04/2020:

kombucha 50

early dinner flatbread with no flavor really, maybe partially stale? 250, few slices turkey 50, full pint of blueberries over a large period of time 250, some homebaked sweet potato fries (was ok) 200. 750...lots of health in these foods overall! over a wide period of time like 2 hours while doing some work for the paralegal course...did i eat gummies today? 100

10:30pm snack: cookies, still working (most of afternoon) on week 2 of paralegal. just want to get it done :) 150 - seriously am going to try to finish the first half the course in a relatively short time...should take 7 weeks to finish the first half, gonna try for 3 weeks...will have gummies now too


I have now finished weeks 1 and 2 worth of assignments in just one and a half weeks, it is still taking long, but i think i have a way to knock it down a little bit!...i am planning to again do two weeks at least of work this coming week...unless i get called to work, which i don't think is going to happen just yet...so i will just keep working on the assignments.




some walking with Ricky today in the heat. he wasn't too happy :(...now i'm home and going to do some reading..need to do weights later in the afternoon or early evening.

once again, i may skip weights tonight and just continue to work on the class notes - and continue to work on the paralegal assignments thru the night

i might just do the weights tomorrow and deal with 1 day skipped this week of weights :) no worries here.

Progress as of today: -5 lbs lost so far, only 3 lbs to go!

bearcountrygg on 07/04/2020:
Good job on the class work.......are you getting some good info there?

horn_of_plenty on 07/04/2020:
Yes it’s decent for sure :) I can’t memorize it all but I am learning a bit !

Donkey on 07/04/2020:
Are you able to walk long with your bum toe? I'm hoping that this may mean it's sprained or bruised, rather than broken. UGH!!!

What has to happen for you to get called back to work? I'm a little concerned, because I'm seeing COVID cases going way up - maybe not in NY, but yikes....

Horn_of_plenty on 07/04/2020:
re the toe - it's def broken as it's painful still and all, but it's going to heal and i am taping it (i had supplies and everything i need already at home). i can walk on it, but cannot overdo it bc the other ankle is my bad one on the opposite leg and i don't want to be overcompensating. today i'll just use the stationary bike for a change. not much walking, i've decided. maybe walking in the evening. maybe not!

re the job....i'm prob not "being called back" to the same job....it's still up in the air.

i had a phone sorta pre interview with another company that looks ok....but they said they will not be hiring at this moment, which i consider fine as i'm doing the course which is much more time consuming than i thought...if i have to sit out and not get the large unemployment i was getting, well, i'll have to spend some of what i was getting previously then!...

if i don't have to go back to work for another month, i won't be upset...

honestly, if i didn't go back to work until September, i'd be fine with that, too....after that, i'd start getting a little nervous.

upper body weights workout at noon - soon - was going to ride bike but feel it's more important to get the weights in 

studying week #2 out of 14 weeks assignments.  found one book that has audible...which is usually a faster pace than i read, so i got that...but the bigger textbook that takes the most time to read is not on audible, so it will continue to be the challenging read of the class for me, which is fine. i'm thinking i'm probably going back to work soon...


Progress as of today: -5 lbs lost so far, only 3 lbs to go!

Weight: 115.0

slept in today, went to bed at midnight bc that's when i finished the paralegal work that i was doing most of the day! assignments that were due on july 5 are already in and i can start on week #2's work now. i want to stay ahead of the game while i'm not working!

breakfast: oats 200, currants 150, whole milk 150. 500. need some nutrition in me as yesterday wasn't the healthiest...

snack kombucha 60

lunch chicken bacon 50 on English muffin 150. Cookie 100., later chocolates and iced coffee 100.

gummies and cottage cheese 250

Couple cookies 150

total 1900. 

did some walking today, def injured my pinky toe it's prob a small fracture as I tripped badly and fell hard on the toe but it's the pinky toe so aside from pain when I put some pressure on it, I can still walk around and stuff just nothing to overdose it! It's a little black and blue on my food near the pinky toe and I have the feeling there's def a small break. But not something to go to the hospital of dr over - just need to let it heal. 

skipping upper body to do tomorrow instead!

Progress as of today: -5 lbs lost so far, only 3 lbs to go!

Horn_of_plenty on 06/30/2020:
Thanks happy I appreciate that :)

Good job with the working ahead...!! Good plan to get it done while you are home.

Horn_of_plenty on 06/30/2020:

Sleeping in can make one feel really good or really bad, depending on the situation. When I sleep in and I had nothing to do, it feels awesome to wake up a bit later. When I sleep in on a workday and I have to apologize, I feel cr*p and my body responds to this too, along with my mood ruined for the day. I think you are doing just fine and motivated to keep your work done and well done, so don't worry. Sorry about the injury, keep an eye on it so you will know if it really heals alone or needs some medical help.

Thank you for the tips :-)

I missed an important phone call yesterday at 7:30am but was able to contact the person early today :)

bearcountrygg on 07/01/2020:
I did the exact same thing a few months ago....I tripped on the big heavy metal leg of my full length mirror....I also think I broke the toe...and had black and blue on top of foot....I will say...it's happened before but that time was the worst ever...it took several weeks to heal..and I couldn't stand to put a sock on for weeks...I never got it checked either...there isn't a lot they can do....at least you can wear sandals now...that's good.....((HUGS))

horn_of_plenty on 07/01/2020:
Yes I don’t plan to go to a dr or anything ! I hope it can continue to heal! And luckily I can put the socks and shoes on even if it hurts a little bit, it is not terrible ! I’m glad it isn’t too bad ! Yours sounds worse !
