legcramps on 03/06/2019:
yum, love dried mango!

horn_of_plenty on 03/06/2019:
and this was awesome, it was the rind mixed with tamarind and made into a big gel


Donkey on 03/07/2019:
I'm sorry the cheesecake didn't turn out. That's always so disappointing when I make keto things and it's like, bleh. Especially an eggy taste - no thanks.

I hope you are not getting sick. I had that tickle in my throat on Tuesday. I swabbed my nose with Zicam and woke up the next morning feeling OK. Zinc has helped me not get sick this year, truly.

horn_of_plenty on 03/07/2019:
I Think it's an irritation / pimple / sore on back of my tongue.

horn_of_plenty on 03/07/2019:
very back of tongue which basically is in very close relation to my throat causing issues with even when i talk...it's my tongue i think rather than throat and one of the only times i've ever really felt this weird feeling!

legcramps on 03/05/2019:
Nice - gotta love happy days!!

So, what exactly does kombucha do for you? I have never tried it.

horn_of_plenty on 03/05/2019:
it's a probiotic...same effect as like oatmeal, coffee, or a yogurt...it stimatulates your bowels to move.!!!!!!!

sometimes it works very well, but if i eat too much volume of food too late at night, nothing works and i'm bloated the next day.

horn_of_plenty on 03/05/2019:
some days it works like a charm but recently i'm having bouts of bloating more often again.

horn_of_plenty on 03/05/2019:
could be bc of the wraps i bought this time around...too high fiber.


legcramps on 03/05/2019:
Oh I see, I might have to give it a try sometime

horn_of_plenty on 03/05/2019:
lately, i find my body is just off and it prefers having a bowel movement unconveniently at work, which doesn't work well especially if gas is involved!

Horn_of_plenty on 03/05/2019:
i love it on an empty stomach....it's carbonated and i like to relax and drink it while i watch news for like 15 minutes in the mornings.


Donkey on 03/06/2019:
Looks like it was a really good day - those are nice to have :)

horn_of_plenty on 03/06/2019:
yes, these week has been quite nice.

tonight, i'm deciding if i want to stay at work a little extra to do more Paris research tonight...even a half hour should be enough :)

...or if i should get home and walk a little... have foot and hand warmers since it's around 20F today/tonight!

we shall see :) haven't been walking much!....

Lately, i am having hungry days and starting with M&M's isn't the smartest as my morning does get hungrier, lol...must remember this tidbit!

3:30am shredded wheat onyorgum cereal sooo good with almond milk 200. woke up a couple times during night and this last time i had a snack as i had a small appetite.

...fine..it will end up a slightly higher cal, around 2200-2300 day)

snacks: i have a dark chocolate cherry and a drink to carry me over..100 i think. and around 50 cal cashews. feeling nauseous like i wanna leave! LOL...just an hour left :)

5pm - staying an hour or so until 6pm (since i don't have sneakers so the commute home will be simple and without exercise so i have an hour to spare!) to research Paris!!! 70 calories of caramel hershey's kisses; and 3more regular kisses 70...chocolates while i research!

3day: 2226

early bedtime i'm thining, since i don't have any exercise goals at all for today :) 

___________________________________________________________

Evening plans: early to bed...cannot seem to get enough sleep lately it's ALL I WANT?!

It snowed, but will warm up and melt easily so i could have walked home tonight the 2.5mi, but i don't have appropriate walking shoes to do the long commute walk..when i get home i do plan on doing the stairs, one time, from my 9th floor up to the 23rd. ...so, 15 flights. it leaves me so winded...the plan is to just do this to raise my heart rate some days of the week ...and try to continue this habit.

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

legcramps on 03/04/2019:
Stair climbing is a great option to work in some extra cardio! And it gets my heart rate climbing pretty fast too - way more than just walking would. Have a great day!

horn_of_plenty on 03/04/2019:
yes - it was always a goal to incorporate it since my apt bldg makes it so easy to do ...with the huge stairwell 23 floors total....and there's a (young-er and fitter than most) retired guy who does them most days...his doing them inspired me to really start getting into it...just starting with 15 floors at first :) my floor 9-23 and take the elevator back down ;)

Donkey on 03/03/2019:
I'm trying to avoid going to the market today. Went yesterday on the way home. Didn't realize we needed eggs and milk. *sigh*

Horn_of_plenty on 03/03/2019:
luckily the supermarket was quicker than usual. i was actually with my dad as we went there since the restaurant was closed for a little bit between lunch and after lunch hours! LOL...so i got the errands done fast in the half hour before eating with him :)

Horn_of_plenty on 03/03/2019:
weirdly enough, the lines were short around 2:30pm in the afternoon!


Donkey on 03/03/2019:
Dinner sounds delish - nice time with your dad. How's your mom coming along? Feeling any pain relief? Will she do any physical therapy?

horn_of_plenty on 03/03/2019:
She is still on a lot of pain meds and able to move around a little bit but not much. She IS thinking more clearly and sitting up wayyyy better than before - she is going to be fine luckily ..... now just the insurance stuff and dealing with the driver’s insurance of woman they hit her. Weirdly that woman did NOT file an accident report yet !

gym or maybe just apt workout, soon....want to get out of apt but debating just working out at home, AGAIN! lol home workouts are soooo convenient.  i've been very sleepy today bc really didn't sleep great this week, or enough for me personally, so, just laying around and got laundry done, called Spectrum to remove cable TV, and signed up for a walk on the airport runway with my friend Jen and her daughter and mom for April mid month before my trip! can't wait!  I think i'm taking off my last work sick day around this time. so it's easier to do this morning walk and since it's also close to my Paris trip!  The other sick day will be the week following this one, but it's booked with a lot of dr appts (yearly physicals and optical).

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

Donkey on 03/02/2019:
It's too bad that you can't have a gym membership that charges by the use, rather than a monthly fee, as it seems you are doing more of your workouts at home! I had a similar thought for myself - having a punch-card rather than a membership - for my next step in weight training adventures!!! (lol)

Horn_of_plenty on 03/02/2019:
i have been thinking how i will not join a gym again...and just pay per day when i do go!!! :)

some gyms let you pay per use...and since i hardly go, this could save me money!

Horn_of_plenty on 03/02/2019:
punch cards would be awesome! :)

horn_of_plenty on 03/01/2019:

Donkey on 03/01/2019:
It's been a stressful week for you for sure. It really does take a toll. Look at me, I had to get away just so that I could relax and THINK.

horn_of_plenty on 03/01/2019:

really want to sleep earlier tonight. no plans for extra exercise tonight after work.

_________________________________________________

went to bed after midnight and slept till around 6:30-6:45. got a decent workout in and cleaned up around the apt too as i was working out. i do enjoy these home workouts in that i usually get some other stuff done as i'm working out that wouldn't be done if i went to the gym.

 

 

 

It's 8am...Gotta leave apt really soon...i was able to sleep in a bit. woke up before alarm though...i guess i have one thing in particular on my mind that i must fix today...maybe discuss later if i am up to writing about it...bit of a nuissance.

worked out, with some distractions (good ones) from 8:30-11:45pm.

I'm thinking the next workout should be Saturday, not Friday night...this is up for debate. I skipped, again, a workout this week.

________________________________________________________

evening bigger edit:

Bus delays gettinng home and i was also slightly delayed leaving the office due to family / personal reasons today of needing to go back to try to get something out of the mail - to do that tomorrow morning. talk about it another time bc i have no energy for nuissance type things like this!

i got home late, close to 7pm....i'll be going in an hour late tomorrow but my PLAN was to be home around 6:30 not 7pm! grrrrr! ah well! 

workout soon....need to rest on the couch first, as i stood most of the commute and need to recoop with a snack and coffee.

____________________________________________

kombucha 50

8:30am-9am Breakfast: toasted wrap new thing i'm doing on the oven 80, avocado 100, salt and pepper, egg 70. 250, coffee 50, and then i wanted sugar source and had the last package of reese's pieces real peanut butter cups not my sugar free version 200. 

snack: need to get back onto the health swing of things or my skin is gonna break out...hence the importance of having avocado...snack probably salted cashews. 200

lunch: more corned beef from my freezer 200!, half bagel 200 i'd like to toast if possible, indian food eggplant 200, orange pepper 50. 650

snacks: clementine / more nuts 100

before exercise: iced coffee / bar (simply must continue this, cannot go to see my mom again tonight....just can't be done as i have to do certain things for myself to keep myself ok...sorry..) 200 and banana and starting an amino drink...just relaxing a bit...

exercise....getting there.....

during exercise: have a couple bananas at home, will pick up a couple very strong flavored drinks that are aminos but no caffeine on the way home maybe!...trying to get home so i can start up that workout...BUT ALSO BE ABLE TO DO THE WORKOUT WITH ENOUGH DRINKS AND OPTIONS...YES, REALLY. another banana 100, peanut butter 100

after exercise: possibly a wrap and avocado with egg...not sure.   protein muffin, yogurt, cooked cranberries. 350

2400, fine ! 

5day avg: 2100, good

 

 

 ______________________________________________________________

I'll do a home weights routine tonight. really wanted it done Tuesday of this week, as to not start skipping workouts again just when i was starting to improve again, but, had no idea what the week would entail.

______________________________________________________________________________

Edit no walk or workout last night (Tuesday)- stayed at work a hair later and rushed home to get car and go to mom. Left a lot later from mom and home at 10pm so workout tomorrow. And going to work usual time Wednesday morning so i can leave on time - since I’ll be exercising today Wednesday and last thing i want to do is start the exercise LATE! So, on time today... 

sleep all week is going to be rough.  i'm not sure what i'm doing on the weekend, but i'm going to stick with weights routines both tonight and friday night would be the smarter thing to do...but i'm considering just working out on Saturday...not sure...i prefer to see my mom on Sunday, but, will have to see what dad has to say but i'm not going to be going back to hospital during this week ....too much traveling with the city commute...it's rough for my dad, very sorry...he has a meeting to go to today in the city in the morning but will be with my mom after that - he has a little more "flex" than i do as i have very set schedule as most people do at work. and mom will be OK so that's why i am going to work.  she's just in a lot of pain with 7 ribs broken.

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

legcramps on 02/27/2019:
Take care of yourself right now; it's hard when you're thinking of your Mom, but you need to make sure you're doing ok too! It will be tough for your Dad, but he will make it work.

Great eats! I love bagels, but I tend to overdo it if I have them available at home. So they are now a treat every once in awhile instead.

I dropped off the avocado wagon and should get back on it.

horn_of_plenty on 02/27/2019:
YOU SAID IT BEST. yes, my dad is making it work...i just wish to send him some sleep! he's def not sleeping :(

same thing with bagels...just a treat. i don't digest them that well i don't think!?

avocado's are a blessing to my skin, i'll tell you that!


Donkey on 02/28/2019:
When my husband fell and was in the hospital for 5 days, it was quite difficult to visit him. I shortened my workday, grabbed fast food, had to drive to pick up the kids and then go to the hospital in the opposite direction... it was really hard.

Horn_of_plenty on 02/28/2019:
yes, i can see how difficult it must have been. too much indeed.

this must have happened when your kids were a bit younger?

then, exercise tonight.

luckily, i will come to work later tomorrow, an hour late, clocks are already set to sleep in an extra hour.

______________________________________________________________

sleep not the best but not the worst. I slept like 9:30-midnight and 1:30am-5:30am...7.5 hours, not that bad, actually, just a little interrupted.  seems that i prefer over 8 hours average in general and many times i do better with 9! not kidding...

_____________________________________________________________

Last night i went to bed shortly after 9pm but didn't stay asleep. At midnight i woke up to get a drink / use the bathroom but realized when i looked at my phone i had several missed calls from dad and my sister even texted me to call her. I texted my dad i was asleep and he called to say my mom had several broken ribs and some stitches in her head bc she was hit my a car :-( ....

so my sister was very upset and crying over it bc my mom had visited her and her baby all day, and she was hit after getting off the train around 7pm last night walking to her car she parked at the train station. also my mom was spending lots of time with the new baby, my sister's baby, so, he was even ahead of the milestones for his month, displaying extra abilities that a month older baby would have! so, my sister is sad that my mom cannot be there right now, for awhile, helping her with her baby.

...So i spoke to my sister on the phone a half hour or so then my dad as i called to ask if i should come to the hospital today as i think she'll be there for a few days.  She is alert and no broken bones thank gosh except the ribs which heal on their own.

She is on lots of pain meds, at least last night, and very weak, but alert. She will be ok...she has had a VERY BAD year, my mom. So, i might go visit her tonight in the hospital, but my dad said i should go to work. He isn't and will stay with her. He has a meeting tonight that he is in charge of and speaks at, his meetiing, so he may go and then i may go to see my mom while he's away....so i'll skip my own union meeting....then, i was still thinking ot exercise....lucky i can go into work an hour late tomorrow....crazy!

I know i don't sound very upset about my mom - i am just thankful it's not any worse and i feel she will get better. We don't have police report yet to know what happened. in some ways, i'd almost rather NOT know the reasons...but yes, i am interested, just sometimes it's better to not know how it happened. 

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

Oh my goodness, that's terrible, i'm sorry to hear about your Mom! Speedy recovery to her!

Thank you so much, legs! She was a bit out of it in pain and not feeling good....but the great thing is she is going to be very ok in a couple months :)

(counting calories/walking/elliptical/weights)
Weight: 113.8

Edit: I am coming into work an hour late wednesday (as i will be up late working out) and i'm staying an hour late after work to make up for it on that same day :) that's the best solution to going to both a meeting and working out afterwards!

____________________________________________________

Happy Monday...starting the day off right with a good breakfast and decent sleep. kombucha 100

Breakfast: english muffin 150, avocado 80, egg 70, salt and pepper, coffee 50. 

snacks:  or other bar 200

Lunch: leftovers :) salad with a few croutons 150 and small pieces of roasted peppers, tofu 100, fried potato indian aloo tiki tasty and just the right size! 200, 1/4 avocado 80. total here: 550.

Snacks: cashews 150, decaf hot green tea from work

candies on walk 50

GOT A HAIRCUT at 7pm and picked up kombucha locally as i was in shock there was a great variety in the first store i tried, a fancy pharmacy, right next to the barbershop by my bus stop :)

dinner:...not exactly sure! maybe another frozen cauliflower crust :) and with yogurt for dessert is what i'm thinking!..    i found protein muffins (microwavable) at the fancy pharmacy (and it's opposite a NYC low income housing many using food stamps, but it's like the BEST pharmacy in queens!?)  anyways, had a blueberry microwavable muffin 250 and whole milk greek yogurt 250 with stevia. and tea....still a little hungry but holding off i think.

1900 before bed. :)

3day avg: 2075, good!

Tuesday, tomorrow, is a very long day. work, union meeting from 6-7pm and workout that evening. after tuesday, i'm home free until one more workout on Thursday evening :) Next workout will be happily Sunday, maybe at the gym this weekend :)

I am glad i asked my supervisor if it was ok to come an hour late Wednesday, i'll sleep in a little bit after the workout which is after the meeting... :) i'll stay late, no biggie, to make up - which will be good, i plan to maybe also do further Paris research for the last half hour or something. ;)...or just do work...but today i haven't even thought about Paris...so, must finish this research by April 1st...i do NOT want to be planning Paris the same month i have the trip!

 

___________________________________________________________________

I've decided not to take a day Wednesday as the weather is cold. I'll have to just deal with less sleep this week or a skipped workout, haven't decided yet. Either one is not best, but, a working person doesn't always have all the freedom we'd like to have each week. I might change my mind and take Wednesaday, but it would be a waste unless i was heading into a busy weekend or something. So, i'm sucking it up and taking this week as it comes ;) 

It's due to a union meeting that ends at 7pm that i wanted to take Wednesday. Instead, I'll just keep on. I'll do my workout on Wednesday, not Tuesday after that meeting. That would be too many scheduled things and lead me to be very stressed. 

 

Progress as of today: 0.2 lbs lost so far, only 1.8 lbs to go!

Some coffee brand that is new to me has been making me anxious and making heart palpitations....they are k cups put out by a brand called COMMUNITY. I switched back to my favorite PANERA HAZELNUT brand and it all stopped. I love my coffee but not when it makes me feel like that.

Horn_of_plenty on 02/25/2019:
it must have a LOT of caffeine, i wonder what the dose is per cup for that other brand!?
