Weight: 110.0

 13.50 Hours in the Sun / Strolling Outside / Indoor Cardio Feb 2021 

24.50 Jan 2021


Assurant / Geico: Condo insurance revision...waiting on Assurant bc i need doc revised for Housing Company... 


Thursday:
We are having another heavy snow storm, i did go to work and i think i'll be able to work the full day although it will snow around 6in i believe.  i will stay up on the MTA transit service and if there's any shut downs or service changes due to snow, but honestly if the snow total stays around 6in, i think the service is going to stay regular...
 
so basically, i'm planning to work the full day...and bed early...really...
 
i must stay in touch today with the warehouse workers who have the key to close the gate to my office...i cannot leave / must notify them to close the gate..and make sure they are here when i leave...
 
this is about it for today.
 
work actually has been busy all morning :) can you believe it!? doing lots of things that just came up, within this morning! seriously didn't think i'd be busy..
 
Eats:
 
wrap whole wheat with ricotta 220, coffee 30 x 2...kombucha earlier 300...
 
snack banana 150, later couple candies 50.
 
looking forward to an early noon lunch: leftoveres from yesterday's warm spinach salad with ricotta nice amount 200/ pancetta just a little bit seriously 50 / ****ake....part of a small roll leftover 100 fruit plum 50...400 still hungry...hot coffee but decaf i think, yes, and couple chocs. 50.
 
snack...before i go - prob chocolates...chocolates 100
 
1050...,
 
excellent, looking forward to this curry, just veggies, will add tofu at home as i have some in my fridge to add...i like to do this bc otherwise i don't get a lot of veggies when i order something with meat / tofu it is a lot less veggies...but i guess i shouldn't care as i can always make more veggies and add them into the extra curry sauce later...something to think about!  it's also cheaper as just a veggie curry....ah, it's savings other way...or money rather way! it's how you think about it! ha!!
 
dinner: rice and chili and a big grapefruit? just wanna get home ;) skip ordering thai with my lack of funds, though, it may be nice to binge on thai veggies after coming home in the snow...so thai is a biggggg possibility..with the tofu i have at home..as a reward for a "snow day" at work! :)...why not. you only live once!...plus i can order the lunch special prices since i order before 4pm ;)
 
snow stopped, ordered this:
Panang curry: pastes vary somewhat from brand to brand, but they typically include dried chili peppers, galangal, ginger, lemongrass, kaffir lime zest, kaffir lime leaves, coriander root, coriander seeds, and cumin seeds.
 
so dinner: summer roll with noodles 100, fried tofu 150, veggies in curry sauce 150, such a small amount of veggies though may need to ask for like a dbl portion next time or supplement with my own, later I had some kombucha 50, wafers 150...600....
 
1650...and a chocolate just hungry 50x2
 
1750.
 
bed early.
 

Friday:
Upper body only....so thankful on Wednesday i got full body out of the way - workout ended late but thankful it's now completed and friday is upper only...!
 
prefer to relax Fri night by starting taxes, but nervous that i will get no money back this year... but seems a workout is in store :)
 
no extra cardio - have a strength workout already in.

Saturday:
sleep in / reading in the AM?
 
Leave apt at 12:30pm for 1:30pm Friend's 40th drive by party, already bought a very inexpensive sparkling chanpagne and also an amazon gift card to make up for the really cheap champagne which i'm debating keeping for myself, actually....YES?
 
3pmish maybe earlier: if it's walkable outside, walk at Valley Stream park on the way home from the drive-by party....would be nice to walk at one of my long-time favorite places since childhood.
 
5pmish: Buy veggies for stiry fry on way home from LI - do this in Valley Stream as i'm already stopping there to walk..buy veggies after..? (red / green peppers, baby bok choy?, eggplant?, little bit of carrots, i have onions that i totally forgot to pay for / take out of my bag at the supermarket! a bad accident! it was only two little ones is the reason, 
 
8pm: Zoom happy birthday for same friend's 40th with everyone, especially since most didn't decide to do a drive-by...alright, i'll give the champagne...it'll be more worth it to drive
 
 
 

Sunday:
laundry anytime
 
full body afternoon
 
not gonna be cooking much, tho not sure...or cook a stir fry or any veggie dish is fine based on the veggies i mostly have at home
 
maybe cook my pumpkin pie, with an oreo crust; cook a stir fry - buy veggies on way home Satuday 
 
Do taxes :) ....i'd like to know what kind of Money i'm dealing with this year in terms of taxes...i highly doubt i could owe very much...however, when i was unemployed for 10 or so months, i didn't have taxes taken out of my weekly unemployment checks, so, that may be quite a bit to owe...I think it might amount to $50 per week....so, ugh....we shall see how that works itself out....whatever the math is on Turbo should be right...now i need ot make sure i have all my tax documents...will start the turbo tax up but probably not file on Saturday night just yet...will wait till sometime in March...

next week - back to more of a regular schedule with workouts on Tues/Thurs, etc...
 
 
 
 

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

bearcountrygg on 02/18/2021:
Careful in the subway...I'm hearing some pretty gnarly things happening there.

horn_of_plenty on 02/18/2021:
yes, it's really unbelievable what people think they can do down there!!!! thank you!


Jacky82020 on 02/18/2021:
Not much snow here, but a friend in Buffalo NY is getting lots.

Began doing taxes. Hate it! The brokerage accounts are the worse part. I’m wondering how Turbo would handle them. Thinking they would want access to my accounts which ain’t happening. I’ll muddle through as always.

Think the Feds tax unemployment, but not the states. Matt was on it for a while & was sorry he got called back so soon, Made like $1200 a week what with that extra $600. He did have the Feds withhold 10%. I have their form.

horn_of_plenty on 02/18/2021:
no, turbo doesn't access anything directly....will write more another time...

...yeah, i didn't do the witholding option while unemployed, i took it all...

good thing i WAS unemployed from Jan-March...so maybe that withholding will cancel out the non withholding during Covid...hopefully i get a little something back and do not owe anything, but, i'm not too sure just yet.


grannyannie on 02/18/2021:
Stay warm in all that snow!

I'll be checking out the wraps when I shop tomorrow. Didn't want to order online.

horn_of_plenty on 02/18/2021:
lemme know what you get!


bearcountrygg on 02/18/2021:
Amazon is really good about refunds.

horn_of_plenty on 02/18/2021:
totally!


Donkey on 02/18/2021:
I'm glad you were able to work and come home OK. What inspired you to get take-out? I am having one of my portions of frozen chili for lunch at work tomorrow. Oh something to look forward to!!!

horn_of_plenty on 02/19/2021:
my friend in Paris is what inspired ME to get takeout! she always posts her "luxurious" takeout meals and she is lucky she gets money from her father who did very well when he was working to help her support herself there. she's the one i stayed with when i went to paris. she is highly self sufficient, indeed, but still she doesn't need to ever worry about money and she regularly loves to treat herself. she has inspired me to take advantage while i can (really!) of working in the city...and order while there are restaurants around and just totally give it as a gift to myself, always, within some very slight reasoning! :)

for lunch today i am also having chili, one that didn't get in the freezer but only the fridge as i made it recently - most of the rest is in the freezer though!

tonight, i'm going to buy some spinach and heat it...and put the leftover curry sauce on it...so i'll have "free curry" tonight with store bought bagged spinach and the leftover curry sauce...planning to start freezing leftover curry sauce (as it's always so much they give!)


grannyannie on 02/19/2021:
Mmm...Panang curry. Hubby makes that sometimes and I eat if often in Thailand.

horn_of_plenty on 02/19/2021:
not spicy right?


grannyannie on 02/19/2021:
Amazon is great about refunds here as well.

horn_of_plenty on 02/19/2021:
another good perk of amazon.

When to do my taxes...a very sedentary activity......

I HAVE DECIDED TO SIT ON MY FOOT WARMER INSOLES, lol...LIKE A HEATED CUSHION!


Wednesday:
Get thru today as easy as possible, change my aggrivated mood to happy...attended the meeting last night - was ok - it was online but lasted from 7-8:30...of which my guinea pig actually lasted without peeing on my lap, unseen to everyone on zoom that i was holding the most relaxed pig the entire time. meeting was OK. heard good speakers, but it was just long....leaves me feeling tired today..i think it's just a mindgame, but what can i say...just happy to do MY WORKOUT tonight, full body, and not speak on the phone.
 
Full body tonight...try to stay relaxed today so i have a good amount of energy to get thru it early in the night, with time to rest afterwards, sleeping not too late :)
 
Wednesday Eats:
breakfast: cheesecake 350, coffee 50, 
snack: banana lg 150
550...cpl candies 50
 
lunch: supposedly work is ordering...and supposedly my order is a tasty warm spinach salad with a little meat and cheese..looking forward if this is the case, also paid for by work...ok very fatty pancetta but it all tasted good, lots of cheese, ricotta patty flat form also, and ****ake muchrooms and ample amounts of everything! best is it was free and still even if i had to pay, a decent price at $11 for a salad that can easily be 2-3 lunches bc it had that much in it.  Now i have leftovers for tomorrow...pancetta 150? just small pieces, cheese 100, salad 50, bread 250...rest of an energy drink....550...VERY filling.
 
snack: chocolates 100
 
 early 5:30pm dinner before a workout: toast and melted cheese good amount of cheese and nice potato bread (from the freezer!) 350, salad with peanut dressing that coworker offered me so nice. nice man (married - so not like that!). 150. 500. gummies 150.
 
1900.....
 
 

Thursday:
mile walk, during commute...might have another heavy snow storm, if so, not sure i'm working...if not working, i will do my taxes...

Friday:
Upper body only.
 

Saturday:
Friend's 40th drive by party, already bought a very inexpensive sparkling chanpagne and also an amazon gift card...
 
Buy veggies for stiry fry on way home from LI
 
Do taxes :) later in evening when i'm home from the "drive-by party"....i'd like to know what kind of Money i'm dealing with this year in terms of taxes...i highly doubt i could owe very much...however, when i was unemployed for 10 or so months, i didn't have taxes taken out of my weekly unemployment checks, so, that may be quite a bit to owe...I think it might amount to $50 per week....so, ugh....we shall see how that works itself out....whatever the math is on Turbo should be right...now i need ot make sure i have all my tax documents...will start the turbo tax up but probably not file on Saturday night just yet...will wait till sometime in March...

Donkey on 02/17/2021:
Oh I have those moods too! I hope that it passes quickly for you, because I know that you are generally a positive person. That is to say, that usually you project the positive side of things. (Not that you don't have down moods and such, of course.)

I've been trying to keep my mouth shut when I'm going through an aggravated mood. If my husband spots it, I usually tell him he's right. I also try to give my co-workers fair warning by letting them know it's not a good day. Anyway, if you're aggravated, try to keep it to yourself -- and I only say this so that you don't create more problems for yourself or others.

Even a most positive meeting can weigh heavily if it's one more task to do during a long day. That's kind of how I feel about yoga sometimes. That's also why it would be difficult for me to do anything after working all day.

I hope you have an excellent workout tonight! :-)

horn_of_plenty on 02/17/2021:
you totally get me!

also, i sorta did let off my mood by quickly sharing how i had a meeting last night with coworkers lol...and i felt a little better after not keeping it to myself...LOL...it helped me have to just keep internalizing my mood and why to just say it out loud and let them know. eh, whatever...whatever helps!


grannyannie on 02/17/2021:
I'd be useless for a nightime meeting! Hope you feel happier as the day goes on.

horn_of_plenty on 02/17/2021:
but i only had to attend, not speak...you should have seen it: PEOPLE WEARING SUITS ON ZOOM!

not i. i had a fleece. and i had a blanket over me on the couch (nobody could see that...or the pig!)

i will try hard to up my mood as that will help me have good exercise tonight...i hope to get thru the exercise rather swiftly...i can't even think of doing it all evening! ha!


bearcountrygg on 02/17/2021:
It was a win win for you and the GP last night.....

horn_of_plenty on 02/17/2021:
HUGE.....everyone was so serious in attendance, i could see on their zoom videos, but i smiled throughout, def happy with the pig...after the meeting, instead of being riled up as usual when i actually go out to the meetings, i was relaxed and took a shower..then promptly went to relax on the couch and feel asleep....so went to bed when i briefly woke...haha...

my point is i think holding the pig helped me relax and i was able to sleep straight thru the night afterwards..


bearcountrygg on 02/17/2021:
I've seen some funny Zoom call results....guys in suit coats but with jeans and boots.....one guy with a dress shirt and underwear...women with work appropriate clothes but pajama bottoms...there are a lot of funny ones out there.

horn_of_plenty on 02/17/2021:
yes, funny memes!


Maria7 on 02/17/2021:
Hope you are feeling better as the day goes on...try to look at it as half full cup and not half empty cup, like they say...put a smile on that face...relax...take care, HOP.

Horn_of_plenty on 02/17/2021:
thanks Maria, the day got better...now just finishing this workout! :) xo

Assurant / Geico: Condo insurance revision...waiting on Assurant bc i need doc revised for Housing Company... 

When to do taxes...a very sedentary activity...was thinking to do it when i can possibly take a day off, in April, but, realizing it's best just to take some time on any weekend closer as i am sitting around on the weekend a lot, anyways, lately, and do them...This weekend i'm slightly busy, already, but perhaps i'll be motivated to start taxes on Saturday night this weekend...

I HAVE DECIDED TO SIT ON MY FOOT WARMER INSOLES, lol...LIKE A HEATED CUSHION!


Tuesday -
 
Add $ to MTA metrocard...$50...hopefully before work, depending on my timing...so it's done & i don't have to think about it further! DONE!
 
walk partial commute home if it's not raining...or go on bike at home for short while...hopefully....yes, no rain atm or later...to be DONE!
 
After work, 7pm virtual meeting for Welfare club (just the name of a club, it's not related to "welfare," it's just a club for the wellbeing of it's members....grrr, never in the mood for a meeting lol; to be later DONE!
 
sometime after meeting most probably and not before, freeze / portion out food for the rest of the week from leftovers so that it's easy for me for the next few days of work & nothing gets wasted!
 
 

Tues Eats
Low cal nice protein bar i realized i had at work, 150, because i didn't want to eat my last wrap as i want it to have for lunch...need more bread or wraps for work, to take from home and bring with me tomorrow rather than go to supermarket to buy when i have half a loaf already at home that i shouldn't waste..., coffee 50.
 
snacking: banana for health / digestion 150 ...keep me regular as it's been such a problem bc of stress/work/commute (at least i can use the bathroom on weekends, LOL)...later on a granola bar 150 also.
 
lunch: my chili, smaller amount 200, with a wrap 150 (last wrap at work...) and ricotta fresh 100 and new...450...maybe the rest of Friday's energy drink (stays good in the fridge...)
 
snack: 2:45 chocolates 150....grrr.....in a low mood, but now too low lol....easy actually to perk myself up by thinking good thoughts :) ....i'm serious! must be the long weekend that has kept me sane!
 
early 6pm dinner before online meeting @ 7pm tonight: white rice 250, chili 250-300, very fresh and soft choc filled wafers 200, kombucha 50...800
 
1900 :)
 
after meeting clean up my fridge/freeze meals to see how many meals i can figure out of my chili...
 
pack my portable battery for work....but just realized it's a phone charger size for iphone, not for regular usb...i do not think it will work for the insoles....need a different portable battery i think...need to think more about how to wear the insoles without needing them plugged into the usb of a computer, need a portable battery with usb connection....but still it's dumb because i will have wires running all the way out of my shoes...hmm....this was a bad $20 insole purchase i realize now...but i will just try to make it work, at work...and not make any more purchases on foot warming devices as i'm really out of money and really need to function at work not being cold and just work at it....and use what i have. no more efforts will be made to find anything else for foot warming going forward. totally out of funds and energy to buy anything else.
 
Bed early :)
 
so glad i dyed my roots last night...it really wasn't so terrible as i do not have a lot of gray yet....i should really not put it off until the last minute anymore, LOL. 
 

Wednesday:
Bring my potato bread to work and keep in fridge for bread this week, will finish it up by lunch whatever i have at work now...
 
Full body.

Friday:
Upper body only.
 

Saturday:
Friend's 40th drive by party, already bought a very inexpensive sparkling chanpagne and also an amazon gift card...
 

Sunday:
laundry, full body, not gonna be cooking much, tho not sure...
 
cook my pumpkin pie!?  :) with an oreo crust :)

Donkey on 02/16/2021:
Nice schedule! I'm so glad you had a nice day off yesterday. I ran out of time to comment.

horn_of_plenty on 02/16/2021:
me too...it was a time to get a lot of things that were looming done...and i TOTALLY understand when you do not have time to comment! :) no worries there!!!!


Jacky82020 on 02/16/2021:
Did you return the heated socks? Did you get a hard sell for a store credit card? I did, Most aggressive one ever. Should have said YES! when she asked if I had the card.

horn_of_plenty on 02/16/2021:
whenever i return to kohl's (did it once before) i am refunded the same day in amazon credit which is totally fine...or on credit card...but whatever it is, i got a refund and email that it's been processed.

horn_of_plenty on 02/16/2021:
i kept one pair of socks, since they did work well...to use for walks around my neighborhood...they fit pretty well.

the heated insoles have heated but i see they can only be worn while plugged into the outlet at same time...so it's good as long as i don't get up from my desk...i will keep them...although they suck bc they need to be connected in order to be heated LOL...so it's like i need to be "plugged into" my desk and not get up unless i want to take my shoes off....i should return them...but, i have already cut them up.

horn_of_plenty on 02/16/2021:
would be soooo much better if the socks had a remote type of thing going on...like i could walk around with the insoles as they heat...actually, i just realized, i can.....if i use a portable battery...which i have!!!!!!!!! ahhh, figured it out!


grannyannie on 02/16/2021:
I freeze the bread because one loaf is too much for just me. It would get stale by the time I ate the entire time.

horn_of_plenty on 02/16/2021:
yeah...do you freeze the slices individually??? not together right? because they'd all stick together then?? i need to fix this wasting of bread...!


grannyannie on 02/16/2021:
Bread thaws out very quickly after freezing. I freeze 2 - 4 slices together.

horn_of_plenty on 02/16/2021:
okay....i'm thinking just to freeze the potato bread and keep bringing my wraps to work...bread is easier at home, when i can make it into toast...wraps i find better at work.


grannyannie on 02/16/2021:
I used to eat a lot of wraps. I'll check them next out next time I shop and see what kind of calories they have.

horn_of_plenty on 02/16/2021:
i have really low ones at home, whole wheat like 110 cal but not good to eat with my beans...too much fiber...craving the white ones, but a medium size, around 150 cal...there's such a GREAT variety of types! :)


grannyannie on 02/16/2021:
I used to buy the whole wheat ones and sometimes the small WW ones. The bread I use for sandwiches is 92 cals each, so a big wrap would be a nice alternative.

horn_of_plenty on 02/16/2021:
yes, for sure. nice cals. i can no longer do wraps with tons and tons of fiber..gives me issues..so i like a natural whole wheat or the lower fiber white ones.

horn_of_plenty on 02/16/2021:
i prob could do WW now, but in the past i couldn't bc i was eating a lot of high fiber foods and it became an overload of fiber all around, bad diet i used to have. now i'm upping the carbs for more natural, less havoc on my system! LOL


Donkey on 02/16/2021:
The picture I had in my mind of sorting on the insoles made me chuckle inside, but actually, that might not be a bad idea! Definitely more flexible in where you can apply the heat!

I don't know that there is a wrong way to make chili. I hope you didn't take my method as a criticism!

Horn_of_plenty on 02/16/2021:
lol i'm glad i can feel the heat from the insoles thru all the padding in my booty....

....def not criticism from you ever, i'm glad you told me how you cook it; and made me realize there's many alternative ways and to try them all, when i can, for diversion of tastes and methods. it's good to hear new ways and new methods from you, i appreciate it always.

i found the same brand today at the supermarket, no sugar added, pumpkin pie...very low cal even with the crust...sadly, the one near it had a small amount of mold, so i decided i'll just make my own today, low sugar pumpkin pie and not buy yet another one at the store today! to answer the question earlier in your mind, yes, they are still selling the pumpkin / sweet potato pies near me!


grannyannie on 02/15/2021:
I like how you plan your entire week!

Horn_of_plenty on 02/15/2021:
i am slightly perturbed with all the planning this week has required....it seems there's a lot of small commitments and i'd forget to do something without writing it down! :) thank you!!!

Good chili weather.......( I always cook the ground meat thoroughly before adding the other ingredients).

Horn_of_plenty on 02/14/2021:
good to know...good idea....i have to look more into doing a meat chili...this time i did a vegetarian one...will add some ricotta after it when eating it, for more protein...


grannyannie on 02/14/2021:
George Orwell had a house on a very sparsely populated island in my county. It's where he wrote 1984. (although he was English).

thank you, to you too...nice and restful day spent totally at home!


Donkey on 02/15/2021:
Is it safe to cut the heated insoles? Are they chargeable like Jacky's? If be afraid to cut through a wire.

Sounds like you had a lovely weekend, and for you, it's not over yet!

Horn_of_plenty on 02/15/2021:
yes, they are supposed to be cut, thank you for reminding me that i have to work on them tonight...and see if in fact i'll be able to cut them enough; or if i'll have to return them next weekend! i hope they'll fit well enough in my shoes to leave at work and use daily....

they have marks on them for cutting...but i agree with you...gotta see about it.

was nice to have this extra day, very relaxing weekend overall!

grannyannie on 02/13/2021:
Have you ever tried Quorn as a meat substitute? Hubby uses Quorn mince (like burger) in the chili.

Horn_of_plenty on 02/13/2021:
for some reason, i used to eat it, but do not love it anymore...


Donkey on 02/13/2021:
My only advice to you regarding the chili is that if you are going to use meat, do not add it AFTER you've cooked your chili. That is to say, you can't just add cooked ground beef to a completed pot of chili. The cooked meat needs to stew with the other ingredients and cook with them for cooking duration. Does that make sense? Of course, you brown the meat before adding it, but it has to settle/stew with everything. Can't use it as a "topper" like cheese or sour cream.

I have never thought about making chili with bacon. I don't think I'd go there.


Donkey on 02/13/2021:
I can't wait to hear about your morning walk!!! It is snowing here yet again, or I'd be very jealous (LOL).

thinking to do my supermarket shopping at the supermarket in the city close (couple blocks away) to my work at lunch today....so that i have the ingredients ready to make the chili....nah, items too heavy to carry home - 3 cans tomatoes needed. nah...i will be walking some of the distance home...maybe i buy these things when i'm almost home, after i take the bus when i do not have to walk much anymore, not sure.

Oh I like your activities coming up! The only thing on my calendar is Monday night yoga and the appointment for Husband's 2nd shot. Guess I live a dull life - lol. (I don't really think that.) How nice that you have a long weekend to look forward to!

horn_of_plenty on 02/12/2021:
i get quite a bit of days off by working in the union from September thru February...so nice, yes! The other half the year, not as much - that's just the way the holidays are and i'm happy i get some days during the coldest parts of the year!

I like all my activities aside from the Tuesday night meeting. it's more of an "expected showing" that i need to make rather than of my own choice. i'm doing it for others, rather than myself. but such it life - the give and take.

i'm glad your hubby is on the way to his second shot. very good!

i will be really happy on the long weekend and intend to do a little bit of cooking or baking, too.


grannyannie on 02/12/2021:
Enjoy your long weekend!

We last had our teeth cleaned Oct 2019. Were booked for March last year but it was cancelled. They only want emergencies. Fortunately, neither of us have any trouble with our teeth.

horn_of_plenty on 02/12/2021:
i was able to get a cleaning sometime late Spring i think? it was after the major shutdown from March-June...i think i'm off the 6 months by just an extra month of waiting for the dentist...i got lucky that my dentist and i have a good relationship and that he opened soon after the biggest part of the lockdown for New York City, etc...


bearcountrygg on 02/12/2021:
LOVE leftovers!!! So handy!

horn_of_plenty on 02/12/2021:
I would like to make ever better use of my freezer this way...it's so nice to not waste food, just freeze it for convenience :) i'm loving them, too. it's saved me a LOT of money this week!...almost all my lunches and dinners were leftovers!


Jacky82020 on 02/12/2021:
Our dentist called and canceled the last appointments & hasn’t set up another yet. Sure they will at some point, but everything ok. Matt cancelled his routine annual PCP exam. A waste! I cancelled a blood test I don’t feel is imperative & will wait until summer when I need the standard panel. We’re afraid of Covid!

Soup & leftovers are always excellent!

horn_of_plenty on 02/12/2021:
yeah, if it's only skipping a dr for either a half year or year, i'm sure you'll be ok if you are otherwise regular with your appts!


bearcountrygg on 02/12/2021:
When I make chili I use ground beef...( good source of iron)and protein.

horn_of_plenty on 02/12/2021:
yeah....i should totally add beef or turkey to it...


legcramps on 02/12/2021:
I haven't made chili in a long time, but I use ground beef as well. You could also use ground turkey, which is high in protein.

horn_of_plenty on 02/12/2021:
yeah, i should find a meat chili recipe...yes.


Maria7 on 02/12/2021:
I love your crockpot of chili idea! Good weather to be eating some!

horn_of_plenty on 02/12/2021:
YES! i will totally get some meat in it...decided to not make a vegetarian style as it is not very filling...but may change my mind LOL...but prob with meat :)

horn_of_plenty on 02/12/2021:
or, i'll use sour cream as a topping and do no meat :)

i'm not receiving my Old Navy $50 reward for the month of January, but i just learned it could take up to two statements to receive rewards, by reading on my own the small print about rewards on the app...so I only need to call if it's March and i do not have the $50+ rewards.

Wednesday - Call housing about my condo/co op insurance and why they need it revised!? i hope not....i did have to change something, so now waiting to get the document revised from Assurant so that i can send it to my housing...
 

kombucha 50
 
last 1/4 of the pumpkin pie...sorta ispired to make another one tonight, but, will just eat my eggs and other things i have at home and make the pie again for next week, with a different crust like an oreo crust... 320 and coffee 80... 
 
a nice bar, satisfying, called this collagen thing...already threw it out, can't say more than its 150 cals and quite healty 
 
 
healthy lunch: white rice 200, leftover thai chicken with a little ginger,, 200 my veggies 150, coffee black. 550
 
snacking: small clementine, chocolates 160
very bloated due i think to that TOM and not specifically my eating...will stick to something small voume tonight - McDonalds it is :).....and i'll do some of the walk home..
 
 Dinner McDonald's 750
2050-2100.
 
 

 really cold and tired today...must go to bed early...and will be happy when i can put my fully charged socks on!...update: socks have charged and i just turned them on...already feeling nice and warm and the socks are also nice and  thick, but not too think...i think i will be happy..

now i see there's HEATED INSOLES..i'm thinking that would be best to use at work everyday, no? and it doesn't need washing...should have bought the insoles!?...but for now, i'll just use these socks...i may buy the insoles next...bc then i do not have to change socks...makes me want to return the other pair of heated socks...or i'll just save them at home...i should have researched heated insoles before getting the socks...might actually return one pair of unopened heated socks...

 OK, will return ONE of my two pairs of the heated socks...they do work great, but i prefer the heated insoles, i think...so i can wear regular socks :) ...but i'll keep one pair of heated socks for walking outside in wintertime...so i'll return the pair i didn't open.

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

grannyannie on 02/10/2021:
Oreo crust?! Yum. Love Oreos.

horn_of_plenty on 02/10/2021:
yes, i saw it in the store last time...but try it! :)...prob this weekend i will make a pumpkin pie using it....most probably :)


Jacky82020 on 02/10/2021:
That reminds me! My heated socks are due today. The same brand. I see 2 Amazon packages on the daily USPS alert, but am too lazy to check the numbers & see what they are. One has to be socks.

I am curious about the guy who says he’s in California but’s really in China who has what may be the same item for 1/2 price. China has some kind of government subsidized mail system that exports items fast & cheap. I often get stuff from them in less time than the average US shipper. But not always.

horn_of_plenty on 02/10/2021:
i ordered two pairs and they came each in their own box LOL...i was like, really!?, you can't ship them together!?

socks seem cool so far...i think i will love them. i have them on the lowest temp setting..as i'm indoors and don't want to overdo it..

horn_of_plenty on 02/10/2021:
so far, after 5 minutes, i am enjoying them and feel much more comfortable...we shall see long term...i will try to shut them off at times.


Maria7 on 02/10/2021:
Wow...heated socks and heated insoles...sounds wonderful! Hope you are having a good day, HOP!

horn_of_plenty on 02/10/2021:
that's what technology has come to! convenience and warmth for the cold at heart ;) hahaha


Jacky82020 on 02/10/2021:
Socks arrived & I hate them! Cheap, ugly, long & tight. Amazon has emailed a return label. Will print up next time I stroll to the living room. Lol.

Ordered those insoles only for $9 or so.

horn_of_plenty on 02/10/2021:
I kept one pair bc I like them but insoles will be far better


Donkey on 02/11/2021:
Heated insoles! I never would have thought of such a thing, but I can see the appeal in those! When you get yours, I'd be interested to hear your review!

horn_of_plenty on 02/11/2021:
yes, and the price was RIGHT...and they can be cut to fit inside the shoes...that is how they are marketed. these will be awesome...i hope! will let everyone know. they come Friday.

I bet those socks will feel wonderful! I have a space heater in my office that I use as it gets cold in our office area often.

please let them be great...!

Those socks sound lovely!

horn_of_plenty on 02/09/2021:
please let them be great...!...if they are, i see a couple more pairs in my future..possibly so i do not have to wear them more than 1 day in a row...we'll see how good they work :)

Think it must depend on location of distribution center. Got amazon email saying socks will arrive tomorrow. Wondering if they will come changed or if I’ll have to do it.

Sent my mom a huge gift basket early for Xmas, thinking it would take a while to get there. So Amazon delivers it the next day.

horn_of_plenty on 02/09/2021:
agreed, it's gotta be the location, location, location! i'm sure it's not a popular item...most people don't even know battery operated socks are a thing.


Jacky82020 on 02/09/2021:
Yep!

When Amazon delivered the gift basket to my mom, they sent me a pic of it sitting on her porch. Guess they rang the bell & ran. They should have waited for her to open the door & wave at me!

Maybe skiers and the like use the heated socks.

that would have been the cutest photo ever from amazon if they got your mom in the photo!!! i get the photos too of the packages left in front of my door :)

horn_of_plenty on 02/09/2021:
heated socks would be great if more people knew about them...i'm sure many people who work outside aren't even aware they exist!!! great for a mailcarrier! :)

I often feel that there's a mind body connection thing going on, as what happened to you. That is to say, your body waited (as long as it could) until your mind knew it was safe at home, which then allowed your body to release.

That kinda sucks about the air vent. This is silly, but could you wear a hat of some sort to help keep you warmer? Something cute and stylish like a beret or Juliet cap?

horn_of_plenty on 02/10/2021:
i like the idea of the cap / hat...except it means that in the SUMMER i'd need it too...and that's why i am trying to get past wearing a hat...but i will, if i really have to...trying to skip a hat as i cannot wear it all seasons..if that makes sense.

and yes, my body def waits until it's "safe."

PS I am anticipating that tomorrow will be Cramp Day, which is mandatory before things really get started.
