Horn_of_plenty - Saturday Nov 28, 2020
(counting calories/walking/elliptical/weights)
Weight: 113.0

Edit: today was SLOW. i sorta have a headache from remaining mostly indoors besides a walk...and just a slow day. not even that much studying, at all.

Tomorrow, i'll call a friend of mine...and also thankfully i have weights tomorrow. i may do some leg exercises tonight, we'll see - my body could def use them, that's for sure...

if i didn't have a test to prepare for, that's a large chance i would have visited parents or asked a friend to get together this weekend, long weekend -  especially my friend who's a teacher. but i wasn't thinking about that, getting together, bc my mind previous to this weekend was focused only on Monday's test.

There's really not much "cramming" i can do that will stick...so i'm just reviewing questions that i got wrong and studying why i got the wrong...most of the answers are logical and if i give thought about when in the Proj Management Process  the scenarios are taking place, i CAN take a MORE logical guess...when taking the test, it will be ULTRA important for me to consider, with all the process/inputs/tools and techniques/outputs sections, WHEN they are taking place in the project: as in: BEG - MIDDLE - OR END!? this will help me lots.

my writing above, i will also read over tomorrow, to remember to consider where i'm at in the project management process on the process questions...it's a MAJOR TIP for this test which can be overlooked after reading too many questions in a row too quickly.!!!

______________________________________________________

Happy Saturday :)

9:30 breakfast: last slice of banana bread, sorta larger. 400, kombucha 50.

 took a late morning wwalk to pick up eggs for pumpkin pie and extra walking before going to the store, hour cardio :) felt good.

noon snacking while laundry is going on & REVIEWING ALL ONLINE TEST DEMOS AND TIPS NOW ON THE SITE & IN MY EMAIL FROM TESTING COMPANY.- DONE..blueberries 120, pb on a shortbread cookie 120, caffeine drink cherry Bing drink 10...250, More of the can of bing 50

2pm lunch chicken bacon 70, goldfish cheddar crackers 300..370

4om small apple 80

Close to 6pm: leftover salad from parents from Thanksgiving that i added olive oil to 150, topped with leftover somewhat fried chicken but a moderate (not big) piece 300. 450.

8pm snack healthy pumpkin pie 150 - hopefully it will cool more overnight and be a little denser tomorrow. it was slightly too soft in consistency for a pumpkin pie, but was decent, though not as good as regular pumpkin pie. it's a very large slice for very little calories, though!

9:30pm 2/3 of a chocolate coated greens bar 200, so good i should find a bar that is slightly lower calories with same taste and nutrition. love these.

2000...

grannyannie on 11/28/2020:
Won't it be nice when you don't have to study any more or apply for jobs?

Horn_of_plenty on 11/28/2020:
OH, YES, I COULDN'T AGREE MORE....VERY NICE, ANNIE!!!!

At least i still have some income coming in right now, thru unemployment. thankful to have that safety net at the moment, rather than receive nothing...it makes it easier to study more when not completely stressed over that! :)

it will be nice not to study for this particular test more, yes. i have the basics and it's super frustrating knowing i may not know enough detail for it...but we shall see.

anyways, with the job thing, i think i will not be settled for still many years in terms of career, but it was nice to have the break during Covid from it and to get the paralegal certification as well.

also, with the study thing, i may continue to study on my own, some online classes, paralegal related, but have to see when i want to take the classes and if i want a break when i go back to work. and these classes are classes that I CHOSE...rather than this PM test that i am doing for the good of the credential.

to answer your initial question: Yes and Yes.!!!!


Jacky82020 on 11/28/2020:
Making my first jug of kombucha,,HOP! Details & a pic soon. The tea is cooling before I can add the GT bottle. Tried the other brand, the one in peach/pineapple. Far more carbonated than I expected. Says made from sparking water. Not sour or beer like at all. Tasty!

Horn_of_plenty on 11/28/2020:
yes that pineapple peach one, by Kevita, is amazingly good. and yes, i believe they are very sparkling and possibly more than other brands. very sweet, they add the stevia which i do like.

i've got to hear more about this kombucha process because if it works for you, it could be something i'd follow your lead with, it could be a huge $$$ saver to balance my purchasing of kombucha with making homemade. and calories could obviously be looked up or just estimated, since you can see i am big on calories....

it would be nice to be able to mix & ferment my kombucha and not have to fully rely always on store bought. and i've got stevia to sweeten it, if it's not sweet enough....tell all and take photos, yes.!!!


Donkey on 11/28/2020:
Happy studying day! Oh I don't think I envy you! To study and learn is one thing, but when you know you have a big test coming, that's a whole different dish. However, with the schedule you've set for yourself, I think you'll be prepared as you possibly can be. All you can do is your best, and we know you'll do that!

Let us know how the pie comes out!

Horn_of_plenty on 11/28/2020:
i could have studied more in terms of memorizing specifics...my understanding is more broad and if i fail, i will have to delve deeper.

I have memorized a lot of math formulas, but not every single one bc the test will prob not ask every single one...i know the easier ones but it's hard to memorize the ones that are almost exactly the same and it was starting to confuse me, so close to the test.

so, i'll say i def have the broad, basic, concepts and understanding of PM. and i am crossing my fingers that it is enough to PASS. only what matters is to PASS, not get an A.

and if i don't pass, i'll have to delve a little deeper, like i said.

but i definitely understand and know much more than i did this summer when i was in the 3 week or so review class for this test and we were going thru the questions, which, at the time made very little sense to me.

it's so nice that i have had the time off, to put in this studying. it would have been much, much harder had i been working...to gain the understanding that i have.

going into the test, i'm borderline. and if i have to do more, i can only pick up and continue from there.

just wanted to thank you for your input, i always secretly wish to get feedback from you because it's constructive and helpful.

you are right, the "testing" situation ruins a learning situation, sometimes, in my mind. it takes the fun out of learning, in my opinion. !!!

at least this test is not writing, it's all multiple choice, and it's concepts. after studying, there's hints to find in the questions, etc. i see some of the basic connections that will get me points!

I HOPE YOUR TRIP WAS WONDERFUL, I DID LOOK WONDERFUL! WISHING YOU A RELAXING, HEALTHY, RESTFUL WEEKEND, MY GOOD FRIEND!

grannyannie on 11/27/2020:
I love banana bread!!!!


Jacky82020 on 11/27/2020:
Just returned from small local Italian market that has good prices on boneless chicken breasts/thighs . Use to make dog food. They had the most wonderful day old banana cake reduced to $1.99. Looked like banana bread. Took Herculean strength to resist!


grannyannie on 11/27/2020:
I've only made banana walnut bread once in my life. Tons of oil. It was soooooooo good.

Horn_of_plenty on 11/27/2020:
yeah, i do think banana bread is rather far from healthy. the one my sister makes is quite rich and heavy!


Jacky82020 on 11/27/2020:
Used to make them, but not for ages. I’ve given up many foods over the years, too many calories and poor nutrition. But I loved it!


Maria7 on 11/27/2020:
Banana bread sounds good!

Horn_of_plenty on 11/27/2020:
do you make it?


Jacky82020 on 11/27/2020:
Are you feeling better today, HOP?

Horn_of_plenty on 11/27/2020:
you're right, banana bread seems like a pretty bulky, rich dessert. i agree.

yeah, my stomach was still slightly weird - maybe it's all the candy i've been eating.

i do feel better. somehow i have a sore throat that developed over the course of today!

thanks for asking!!!

i am just not in the mindset to spend too much time on here for now...too many other things i am thinking about!!! <3

by the way, I think InnerP forgot to mention you, the "newbie," in her thank you's on her entry today... so i want to tell you that you are a great addition here. we are thankful for your contributions!


Jacky82020 on 11/27/2020:
Thanks, HOP. The PM test should be your top priority. Who’d want to waste the money taking it twice? But no real option if it gets to that.

Horn_of_plenty on 11/27/2020:
It really is a disgrace how expensive it is!!!! LOL. thanks Jacky!


Jacky82020 on 11/28/2020:
Indeed! Wonder what they screw you for on the GRE, LSAT, MCAT etc these days. Been years since I took any big tests.

Good luck with your interview!! The more the better! New Guy was doing working in this area before he came to our firm, both commercial and residential evictions.

Otherwise, I wish you a productive studying day!

Horn_of_plenty on 11/25/2020:
the interview went very well...i was prepared for it and had good things to say. it was the most "conversational" interview i have ever had to date...where it was totally more fluid on both ends with good things and thoughts on both sides...

i'll keep you updated, if i hear anything...

and i look forward to a walk now, before i study anymore...maybe drive myself to the park!


grannyannie on 11/25/2020:
Good luck on the phone interview!

You are a pumpkin pie fanatic! :)

Horn_of_plenty on 11/25/2020:
now i get to experiment with a no sugar added recipe...instead of condensed milk, i'm using evaporated milk with monk fruit.

thank you for the good luck.


grannyannie on 11/25/2020:
Pumpkin is good for you! And without sugar, even better.

Horn_of_plenty on 11/25/2020:
i have high expectations, lol, for this pie to turn out right! i might make it tonight or friday.

may get on indoor bike for a very little while later, while watching tv perhaps....DONE 

i study on the couch, in very relaxed positions, so it's important i add cardio into the day...

You mean a two tone look? What do the call that, am ombré?

Horn_of_plenty on 11/23/2020:
no, no...not at all! LOL...that would be nice, but my days of experimenting with cool 'dos are DONE! if i were working / higher salaried, no problem! but since that is not the case:

i have brown hair and most cheaper but well-known dyes work just fine on my hair. i do it at home, just started like half a year ago with the dying process, because i have a few grays and i want to be good at dying it at home bc i will save tons of money this way...especially when i really need to dye my hair with more grays...i'm just getting used to dying it now...

awhile back, 2-3 years ago, i was experimenting and getting all kinds of highlights and nice things done to my short brown hair. it all looked good, but needs too much upkeep for me. i don't really enjoy having to be high-maintenance.

and now that i'm unemployed, it'd make no sense to get an ombre or anything...and i'm not skilled enough to do it at home! plus my hair is too short for that...it's not even down to my shoulders yet!


Jacky82020 on 11/23/2020:
Oh, come on, you’ll look cool running off to interviews in pink and platinum hair! L’Oréal works for me! Quite often they have $5 off coupons if you buy 2 I am so cheap! It’s a family tradition.

that's a good coupon deal, there...most recently i found a product on Amazon (from a well known hair color company), that if i sign up for subscribe and save, it comes to less than $5 per package of dye...i haven't tried it yet, it's a brown...but maybe has a tinge of red in it. should be fine...i hope for it to be my go-to color...but first i have a package that i saved and didn't use all the coloring from to still use up!

Jacky82020 on 11/23/2020:
Love amazon!!! Thanks

Horn_of_plenty on 11/23/2020:
yeah...it's sooo scary how many trucks i see now that are out for Amazon delivery...i hope our economy / community stores makes it overall thru this crazy pandemic! but i love my amazon, also.


grannyannie on 11/24/2020:
I quit dyeing my hair about 5 or 6 years ago. So I'm mostly grey and I'm fine with it. I always did it myself except for twice when I had highlights done at a salon. So I feel a bit sorry for the women who only had theirs done a salons and are hating their grey roots! Like my sister.


legcramps on 11/24/2020:
I stopped dyeing my hair a couple years ago, simply out of laziness. I really hate the upkeep, am not a high-maintenance person at all. Shaving is about all I can muster the motivation to do LOL.

horn_of_plenty on 11/24/2020:
I may Turn into a non dyer in the future but I’m not there yet ! In your photos, I don’t see gray hair


grannyannie on 11/24/2020:
We don't have Amazon trucks here. It all comes from the post office or independent delivery trucks. And we live where we are a bit isolated shopping wise so we buy a LOT from Amazon, especially now.

horn_of_plenty on 11/24/2020:
Wowwww. You should see all the amazon trucks and vans! All day, everywhere


grannyannie on 11/25/2020:
My granddaughters gets gifts from me by Amazon truck. And my sister sees them all the time.


legcramps on 11/25/2020:
I don't have much grey yet, i'll admit. But if history and genetics play a part, my grey will grow in patches on my head which may look a little strange. Still, I don't know how much i'll care when the day comes.

grannyannie on 11/22/2020:
Have a great Sunday! Studying again?

Horn_of_plenty on 11/22/2020:
trying to, yes.


Jacky82020 on 11/22/2020:
Study hard for that one, HOP! Such a costly test.

Horn_of_plenty on 11/22/2020:
ty ty


grannyannie on 11/22/2020:
How do you make your tofu?

Horn_of_plenty on 11/22/2020:
sometimes, many times, i have it as is and just mix it up with bites of whatever else i'm eating!!!

or stir fry it with veggies, without totally frying it...if that makes sense.

i usually have it as a quick protein with whatever i'm eating, just even heat it in microwave a minute!


Jacky82020 on 11/22/2020:
Never attempted tofu, but just googled & too much work for me for widely available item. They either used beans and extracted the “milk” or the easier recipe used soy milk. Good thing is it doesn’t have to age and can be prepared in a few hours. I think.

Horn_of_plenty on 11/22/2020:
tofu is solded regularly in all the supermarkets by me!


grannyannie on 11/22/2020:
I dry fry it before it's added to a curry. I like it fried though but too high in calories.

Horn_of_plenty on 11/22/2020:
yes, the restaurants usually fry it too, many times...i prefer they don't!


Jacky82020 on 11/22/2020:
Love that too! Ever try Tempe?

Horn_of_plenty on 11/22/2020:
no, i think i bought it 1x....and the taste i didn't like...


Jacky82020 on 11/22/2020:
Haven’t tried it. Think widely available. Strikes me as something that depends highly on cooking methods & sauces, like if you fry and top with spicy sauces it’s supposedly good & otherwise bland

Horn_of_plenty on 11/22/2020:
yes, tofu is bland like an egg white until it's mixed into sauces, etc...


Jacky82020 on 11/22/2020:
Meant Tempe. Used to eat tofu

Horn_of_plenty on 11/22/2020:
yeah, the tempeh texture...thickness and toughness, puts me off!


Jacky82020 on 11/22/2020:
They make it with a fungal starter from soy beans Staple in Indonesia

Horn_of_plenty on 11/22/2020:
ugh, i know even my kombuchas are made from starters, but i don't think i could ever eat tempeh again! unless it was super-saturated in good flavorings, restaurant quality meal! hahah


Jacky82020 on 11/22/2020:
The kombucha uses both a fungus and bacteria. Disgusting looking thing, the SCOBY. Looks like slime mold from a horror flick. You can buy a bottle of kombucha and use it as the starter & make a gallon. Saw pics. These slimy tendrils grow out. Can’t recall, but think it takes a good week at least


Donkey on 11/22/2020:
I need to dye my hair. I have a gray patch in front, by my part, that is getting bigger as I keep getting older. I can usually cover it up or blend it for 2 months with a box of hair dye. However, I will not have the chance to color my hair before I visit family, so everyone will remember me as an old lady, this year.

Horn_of_plenty on 11/22/2020:
ahh, there's more to remember than some gray hair....you go have fun, Donkey....you be safe, but enjoy yourself!!!!! xoxoxo

Weight: 113.0

Good Morning Everyone. I have a full, OPEN, day ahead :)

10am-11am Late morning snacking/breakfast:  thsese little gummy straw things 150, a "Greens" choc coated protein bar (higher sugar, but does have many vitamins and nutrition, but not a light bar by any means) 300, kombucha 50...500

1:45pm healthier lunch: poke bowl that i got on sale, salad, some edamame 50, seaweed 100, dressing 100, some other stuff, salmon 250. 500, some goldfish crackers chedder..150, the other half the rose cider (spiked) from the other day, still good, i just put the cup i don't finish back in the fridge. 100.

4pm snack: another new low sugar gummy i ordered, by Smart Sweets, new flavor which is red twists (fashioned off of twislers)...very good. 100

 7pm light meal - pumpkin pie filling 200, yogurt 150. 350 filling was warm bc i just cooked it...its much better when it is cooled! lesson learned.

will eat better tomorrow, late snack is two white chocolate pb cups. 250

1950 total today.

 

 

 


Most of the day, in intermittent pieces - meaning between other activities to try to stay motivated and with a focus on studying, i'll be studying the PM. My goal is now to finish understanding the formulas...and move into the "Cheat Sheet" section as it's called on the PM app.

I have signed up for the PM test, in the afternoon, around 3:15pm, Monday, November 30th.  I wanted a morning session, but it was taken. The slots seem to fill up very quickly. I will have to be careful if i need to register again, bc i believe the slots will be even tougher to get because after December, the format of the test is changing for the long run - and people want to get their test taken before that happens.


 

  • half hr WAlk outside - DONE
  • I have decided to clean the guinea pig fleeces so they are downstairs in the washer of the building laundry room now. luckily nobody was in there, no waiting time, perfect! DONE
  • It's important that I do some cardio today - I might do it home bike ?
  • I plan to make my favorite pumpkin pie filling today, no crust. planning to bake it this AM...it's so easy and shouldn't take long.
  • I will do my leg strength exercises today, probably a bit later in early afternoon.

 

I'm loving the "insert horizontal line feature, is this new!?---:


Supermarket -  MONDAY or Tuesday?:

  • i should pick up some seltzers from the supermarket bc they really help me drink more as i'm not always drinking my water. i usually had stevia and they become really sweet drinks.
  • Oh, I am also running a little low on veggies to feed the guinea pigs...down to one green pepper and lettuce, but no tomatoes or carrots. I should pick those up at the supermarket too...Haven't been volunteering at places that have many veggies and done volunteering for the time being...need to be home right now more... 

 

  • I still have some cooked chicken that should last 1-2 more days at most in the fridge.  and i still have frozen meat to cook when i run out of chicken, so no need to buy. 
  • i should prepare my own cooked veggies, soon. otherwise, it's salad for a few days - hmm, that is fine, too...

 


 OIL CHANGE- TODAY - DONE, no wait at all for it to be done!

30 min walk, DONE

  very important for my 11 year old car!, fingers crossed for my perfectly great car! (Pontiac Vibe, only car that ever lasted this long for me!)

walk while it's being done.

and it's only 11:30am and already 60F+ degrees...would be perfect to get out of here and take a walk while getting the oil change done, pick up the poke bowl that i have a coupon for...seems my plan...


 

Lunch Plan for Today: DONE!

...but i also have a coupon, again, for a poke bowl so i will use it, $5 off $10 or more. that's a decent deal. going to use that, today, probably later in the day, for early dinner.


 

 

Progress as of today: 2 lbs lost so far, only 1 lbs to go!

Donkey on 11/21/2020:
If I may: Try not to use your errands as a reason not to study. I find that I do this, especially if I'm nervous about an assignment or project (i.e. studying). Still, having the errands might help you structure your time, so in that case, that's fine.

I don't envy you for having to take this test.

I did not have a chance to reply to yesterday's entry before you posted here, and I wanted to say how much I AGREE with you about disliking pizza as a meal. If there is not green salad or, say, a raw vegetable tray, then I tend to go completely overboard on the pizza. For me, pizza in itself is not a complete meal.

I believe I will be faced with a similar situation next week at my brother's house, unfortunately.

And then to have cake on top of that - oof! The vegetables help balance the fat and carbs of the pizza, making the cake more ... tolerable. Yes, this is me saying that, and I *love* cake.

Horn_of_plenty on 11/21/2020:
yeah, pizza and cake is not up my ally. i like to INDULGE...and you can't do that with pizza and cake. you can just only have your one slice pizza and cake and not really feel satisfied, just "meh." and it kinda makes me feel bad...i don't know why. and it put me over calories easily, even though if it were other food, i'd probably have met me calories or eaten less. just not good. lol. although i eat most things, it's really hard to moderate a big slice of pizza. i still have anxiety with a food such as pizza. slices are big.

yes, errands can knock out studying. i was planning on being productive for the afternoon, but i was not. i'm not sure why....i have tomorrow to also improve this...someone called also, i spoke to her.

but i can do better. yes, errands can either help or hurt when needing to study. totally. they were supposed to help, but didn't as much as they could have....talk soon....your trip can be good for you...just be safe and don't take mask chances.


Donkey on 11/21/2020:
The solid line feature has been there for a LONG time. I use it quite often in my own entries. I find it helpful to organize my entries into different subjects.

Horn_of_plenty on 11/21/2020:
never knew about the line, i am soooo slow!

also, will write you back letter on the questions / concerns above, mostly in agreement with you on all you write about, above.


Jacky82020 on 11/21/2020:
Lol, the cheat sheet sounds like something you write on your arm, but I know our HOP never do such a thing in a hundred million years.

Horn_of_plenty on 11/21/2020:
while taking a short review course this summer for this test, we were actually told, outside of the actual class meeting - but by the teacher - that more people than ever are cheating. with help of other people in the home, they can hold up papers / formulas, etc. or wheel in a whole cheat board. well, i don't plan to take the test around anyone else...just me...

i am unsure still if i will...ahem...you know...undecided at the moment.

before the test, you have to take your camera / laptop, and show the room, as well.

was thinking to put things up around my laptop screen, but unsure if i should yet...will just study and make up my mind later...

Horn_of_plenty on 11/21/2020:
lol and the arm this time wouldn't work, bc i am on video the whole time taking the test! with someone watching me!


Jacky82020 on 11/21/2020:
You’re saying ppl take these tests from home?

Horn_of_plenty on 11/21/2020:
bc of Covid, that's the new setup...everyone gets their own, online proctor, watching you the whole FOUR HOURS.


Jacky82020 on 11/21/2020:
Well, write upon the ceiling and gaze upwards. You could tilt your head back and pick your nose Lol

Horn_of_plenty on 11/21/2020:
hahaha....that would be SOOOOO ridiculous!


Jacky82020 on 11/21/2020:
What if a girl has to go pee pee? Actually heard of ppl taking proctored tests & going to the bathroom to call the guy with all the answers

Horn_of_plenty on 11/21/2020:
or go into the bathroom with my answers in the bathroom!?! this is, quite, GOOD!!!! maybe i will put some info in the bathroom!

Horn_of_plenty on 11/21/2020:
if you have more ideas, feel free..

Horn_of_plenty on 11/21/2020:
for a four hour test, there's gotta be allowed pee breaks :)


Jacky82020 on 11/21/2020:
I’m working on it. Lol


Donkey on 11/21/2020:
I may have misunderstood your intention for today. Perhaps you are having an open day, with spurts of studying to sort of "rev up" to more serious study sessions. I find this way, too, to be a productive approach. I get more out of the "serious" time if I work up to it.


Jacky82020 on 11/21/2020:
The husband has worked as a PM for the computer company out west. They do GPS. He hated it, prefers to take less money and work as a test engineer which he does now. Said he couldn’t stand this Microsoft Project he had to use. He never heard of the PM test and said they’d never hire an outside person to manage projects, because they wouldn’t understand the system. He’s a super smart guy, bachelors from MIT and PhD from Stanford.

Horn_of_plenty on 11/21/2020:
yes, i know about the tool Microsoft Projects. the test is to have on resume, period. it's not a tool to hire people, etc. it's simple a status symbol as passing the test, many companies that hire PM's know about the test. also, many PM's may not have heard of it. it's just a test, to show you've passed, to add "letters after you name," like a dr would use "MD".


Jacky82020 on 11/21/2020:
Any specific positions it prepares one for?

Horn_of_plenty on 11/21/2020:
a project manager, any field of work that a project manager can do.

basically, if you pass the test, it "proves" you have an ability to think constructively like a project manager about what is important in the organization of a project, as well as doing certain mathematical formulas to work out budgetary / cost / savings (etc) questions.

it is just a test that is an incentive for people who want a PM job to prove they have that aptitude.

some companies that need PM's do know of the test, and they feel the test is like a "certificate" or even compare it to a degree...like a "degree in project management" showing that the person who passed the test is reasonably knowledgable in being able to manage a project, that's all.

it simply shows a person is prepared to be a project manager, except, i am sure some people who take the test may be lousy project managers! haha, but for the most part, if you can pass the test, most it can also give you an incentive for a raise from your company or better job opportunities. it's just another credit to your name.


Jacky82020 on 11/21/2020:
Sounds like a good credential to have You’ll get yours someday!

Horn_of_plenty on 11/21/2020:
now you got the idea of the test.

(counting calories/walking/elliptical/weights)
Weight: 113.0

had alarm set for 7:50am, but turned it off and slept until 9:30am. seems it was what i needed...

10am sweet breakfast: dried fruit/flavored oats 170, almond milk 30, raisins 150, coffee 50...400.

snacks during upper body workout that i almost skipped : kombucha 50, reg gummy bears sour 150

lunch - prob around 1pm 1:20 - rest of sauteed pumpkin 100, chicken 200, wrap 150. 450. Pepperidge crackers 150

50cal very dark chocolate 

Pizza too much 800, cake large piece with icing 450? Non alcoholic beer 50 (worst meal i've had in a LONG time).

2450-2500 ah well.... 

not too satisfied with this bday meal and I feel fat and gross too. 

It's really hard for me to eat meals like pizza and cake because the large slice of pizza is hard for me to not eat the whole thing of...and it's just not a satisfying meal and high in calories. it's taken me a long time to lose weight and it's not "fun" to go over calories bc of meals like this. didn't know it would be pizza till i was told it would be pizza. i actually asked for a salad that maybe we could eat with it...and parents said no - that we were just having pizza. i could have brought veggies...but, whatever.

_____________________________________________

I am waking up to study for one hour, approx 10:30-11:30, after studying the formulas a couple more times, the next part of the app i'm studying is called "CHEAT SHEET" and it's a smaller, more compact section, easier to study...

followed by a snack and upper body weights from 11:30-12:30ish until 1:20ish- NOT SKIPPING bc my strength is already not great after not always following thru during covid.

followed by lunch, 12:30/1pmish 1:30ish...

Shower.

Study from around 2-2:45

leave to go to family for my baby nephew's 2nd bday around 2:45/3pm....i'll be there for the rest of the day till evening....there will be cake :)

___________________________________________________

the guy i was telling you about...the big guy/army vet...texted to ask if i want a turkey...well, i called my neighbor to see if i could get her one because i do not need one...so i'll be picking it up for nice neighbor that doesn't make a lot $$, and possibly see the guy again for a short hello in the next week, i presume ;)

Progress as of today: 2 lbs lost so far, only 1 lbs to go!

grannyannie on 11/20/2020:
Mmm cake!

Horn_of_plenty on 11/20/2020:
for some reason, every time lately that i have cake or pie with my family, it doesn't taste as good as it should!


Jacky82020 on 11/20/2020:
The plot thickens.... Sounds like this guy wants to see you again, HOP. How old did you say he is?

horn_of_plenty on 11/20/2020:
Half a year younger than me :-)


Jacky82020 on 11/20/2020:
Perfect!

Horn_of_plenty on 11/20/2020:
we shall see, i just plan to say hi and bye. i am stressed right now about the test and stuff... :/


grannyannie on 11/21/2020:
It's impossible for me to moderate pizza.

Horn_of_plenty on 11/21/2020:
Same. i feel bad not to finish the slice, then i crave for more. it doesn't satisfy me at all.

   EVENING EDIT: I LITERALLY WROTE A THANK YOU EMAIL TO THE FIRM FOR THE INTERVIEW AND LITERALLY WENT OVER IT ONCE WITH MY PARENTS AND ONCE AGAIN, AFTER THAT, WITH THE RECRUITER BEFORE SENDING IT. 

I SWEAR I FEEL LIKE I AM BACK IN SCHOOL...AND NERVOUS HOW TO DO WELL ON A JOB WHEN I'M GETTING ALL THIS EXTRA HELP AT HOME!? WHOA!

I HAVE A RECRUITER THAT'S MORE NIT-PICKY THAN MY OWN MOTHER RIGHT NOW! lol - she's obviously a good recruiter who is doing more work than anyone i've ever met to help me.

________________________________________________________

 Good AM to you...

      half hour on stepper - cardio

10:30-11:30 kombucha 50

12:30 lunch wrap 150, some chicken with breading 200?, sauteed pumpkin 150..500

      45 min cardio walk in afternoon around 3-4pm - skipping weights today -  to be            done on Friday morning...then again Sunday morning...best scheduling for me.

_________________________________________

10:30am I had my pre-interview chat with a really helpful recruiter, that has recruited me for an interview with Weitz & Luxenberg for asbestos cases thru companies that go bankrupt (asbestos companies) and they are forced to set aside funds for compensation to victims of injury (cancer, other lung diseases) due to asbestos fiber inhalation due to working with the substance.  she helped me work on my answers, after i already worked on them, and she had some tips for me.  that was at 10:30-10:50am.

11:30-11:50 / noon - gonna go on my stepper for some cardio....while watching tv...clear my head.

2:30pm now i have the interview later at 2:30pm with a lawyer and paralegal manager at the firm (it's located in NYC).  they are hiring for a "temp" no strings attached position (just easier for them to do it that way, contract wise, especially during covid). the firm also does training - another plus - to get paid while learning the job...although i'm sure i will be pushed to learn fast...it could be a decent opportunity for me...hopefully i could keep up?!

4:30pm - writing a thank you email...need to actually send it to recruiter and she said she will review before i send it out to the firm as i don't have the interviewer's email......this recruiter is like "my mom."

7:30PM...Having trouble sitting still, doing my laundry now for the whole week, except the guinea pig stuff...

_________________________________________

I have no plans on taking any day trips, a friend invited me to go hiking but the date is not planned yet, and i cannot see myself really taking any time away from my local area and parents on Long Island except for my volunteering and family gatherings. I feel slightly overwhelmed, but in a good way, knowing that my job situation is constantly in flux and i have a test to study for...which is going, but i'm having a hard time remembering everything...it's a lot and i'm sort of forgetting what i learned earlier this summer.

ok, too much thinking out loud.  My point is that i need to use my time right and i cannot see myself going on a trip upstate for a whole day with friend / old coworker beecause it's going to drain me and i don't have time to be drained.

 

Progress as of today: 2 lbs lost so far, only 1 lbs to go!

grannyannie on 11/19/2020:
Study hard!

Horn_of_plenty on 11/19/2020:
will do...thank you for pushing me....

Horn_of_plenty on 11/19/2020:
a thousand and one interruptions today...no real studying till the day was almost over...too much concentration on the interview...and then i can say i did some fancy walking and stepping back at home...what i can say.!


Jacky82020 on 11/19/2020:
Especially for that PM test! I’d hate to have to pay to retake it.

Horn_of_plenty on 11/19/2020:
high chances that i repay....UGH.....it's sickening to think that it's so expensive, as much as a week-long vacation somewhere. disgusting and disgraceful that a test is so darn expensive.!!!!!!!!!


Jacky82020 on 11/19/2020:
Does it have a high failure rate? As I recall the California bar test does and many ppl take it multiple times. Must cost a fortune!

Horn_of_plenty on 11/19/2020:
yes, high failure rate. only 30% pass. they don't even have a "guaranteed" passing score...it's simply up to the PMI (Project Management Institute).


Jacky82020 on 11/19/2020:
I remember when JFK jr took the NY bar exam more than once. Guy seemed to be a handsome dunce at times.

Horn_of_plenty on 11/19/2020:
yes...i believe he was handsome...


Jacky82020 on 11/19/2020:
Wow! Only 30%. Has to be worse than the California bar.

Horn_of_plenty on 11/19/2020:
well, i think lawyers are smart, so i think if it were only lawyer's taking the proj management test, i think they'd do better than 30%

people that take the PM test are business owners, engineers, project managers, wannabe project managers, trades people, students...mixed bag...people who want to be executives (it's not industry based, only related to the overall idea of project management but not in a specific area of project management expertise (like not electrical pm, just PM)

Well, that sure ups your odds of doing well. Also think you’d score high on a civil service exam, you’re smart & have a master’s. Probably lots of dolts taking those tests

Horn_of_plenty on 11/19/2020:
oh yeah, i DO feel i'd do ok on the civil service exams for the court thing...thank you so much for your kind words!!!!! xoxoxoxo

the PM i'm not too crazy about...and there's a math part that is tricky where they give too many extras in the wordy question that aren't even supposed to be used in the formula...

but civil service i wouldn't be as worried about...just nervous, but not worried...

but, it's coming no matter what...the PM, that is.

ha.

Horn_of_plenty on 11/19/2020:
i'm in the category of "student, wannabe PM, assistant PM, office worker"


Jacky82020 on 11/19/2020:
Some very fine people there.

Horn_of_plenty on 11/19/2020:
(i may be on the low end of the spectrum) LOL.


Jacky82020 on 11/19/2020:
Nope. Very fine people on both sides. But seriously, you’re in the upper tier, smart & well educated. Not to mention fit & cute

Horn_of_plenty on 11/19/2020:
ok, you can stop kissing up, sweetie...you are so sweet, did you know that!>

Jacky82020 on 11/19/2020:

With the recruiter and your folks you have a good team behind you! How does your dad feel about you trying for jobs outside of the union?

If you feel so, you need to dedicate a much time as possible to studying for your upcoming test. I have a friend who is studying for the MCAT, and her days are work and study, repeat. That's it.

Horn_of_plenty on 11/20/2020:
dad is supportive on all fronts.

dad is stressed and has a HUGE pimple - he gets them when stressed, i feel bad for his stress (he's worried as he should be on many fronts in general about family...i don't need to ask him to get the idea of his stress).

yeah, i do feel i could have dedicated more time to studying...you are totally right.


Donkey on 11/20/2020:
Glad you got through the interview! When will they make their decision?

Horn_of_plenty on 11/20/2020:
they will be interviewing more. seems this company can afford to do whatever they want to get who they want....i do not know when the decision will be finally made.

Horn_of_plenty on 11/20/2020:
but it's been one of my best interviews and i should save my answers / bullet points for future interviews...i should type them up and save for reference.


legcramps on 11/20/2020:
I'm glad you have a recruiter who is helping you as much as she can... that's great!

Happy Friday :)

Horn_of_plenty on 11/20/2020:
Happy Friday, yeah, she went above and beyond.
