home: nothing, R told me his car wouldn't start (OLD CAR that he constantly fixes)....so i rushed to get ready so i could drive my car to the train since today has the best parking & then i can come straight to my car later and drive to the therapy appointmenton Long Island tonight. As much as it's a good challenge for midweek, i'm def in the works to change the place i'm going to - to a MUCH closer place. Just getting the documents they require and getting it set up this month or so.  It's taking longer than i'd like, but it's not like I need to rush on it. So, i'm just going along with the procedures, filling out request forms, waiting for documents to be mailed to me first - then i have to bring them to the new place. Lots of leg work here in order to change therapy providers...

Will do Sit Ups tonight, rushed out of the house this AM.  Also therapy this PM. Lots of driving, home around 9pm.

Breakfast: homemade banana/whole wheat/oatmeal cookie 150, yogurt 150, coffee 50. 350 total.

snacks: chocolate 70, almonds? 100

lunch: vegan sweet potato/cauliflower and cheese dish 350, a tomato 50, plum or persimmons 50, bread 100

snack: tbd chocolate 50

late evening dinner: starbucks egg bites? 250 and a decaf coffee i think 300

snacks: fiber one bar, gummies. 300 tops

1850 tops, got in my ab work right before bed.

Leaving work early by 20 min because i got here today early @ 8:10, not 8:30am. but i can't say i was totally productive until 9:30am...doing other things online amongst just waking up...sorta. 

I'll be out of work by 4:45pm today...

bearcountrygg on 02/11/2020:
Never had a persimmon...are they sour?

Horn_Of_Plenty on 02/12/2020:
no, they are sweet. they must be eaten when they are VERY soft and almost look spoiled, otherwise they aren't ripe or sweet enough! :) we have lots of persimmons in the markets by me. they usually look quite ugly on the outside skin, but as long as they are ripe and soft, they taste great on the inside.

Arrived at work a little early so that i can leave a little early for dentist appointment tonight. i almost forgot that i'd have to leave work early today until the last minute last night, glad i realized & got myself to work a little earlier today...I may leave even earlier than i should, just so i'm not late to this appointment. should be OK. i can always stay late a little tomorrow or come early again tomorrow.

breakfast: my own banana oatmeal cookie 150, coffee 50, yogurt 150. (no kombucha bc i was rushing and really it's good i take a morning off from it) 350...

11am snack: tbd almonds 100

1pm lunch: leftover cabbage with Jamaican eggplant/potato mix 300?, tofu/cabbage 100...chips 250 jalepeno flavor so spicy! 650

2pm from coworker Popcorn 50, black coffee 

4pm plum 50

snack: need to buy some fruits at lunch...and get money at lunch...done!

dinner: tbd? maybe a microwavable meal...i have a cheesy cauliflower meal that i bought over the weekend..leftover sauteed onion & pumpkin 50, okra 150 in wrap/egg white 150...350, ice cream 200

1850..

Tonight exercise: maybe YES to leg exercises :)...and that's enough. also maybe a mile walk if it's not raining during commute.   forgot i have the dentist...but did walk a little (10 min) and also 15min at lunch...we're good. since i was early to the dentist.

legcramps on 02/11/2020:
Great job getting in those leg exercises! It's tough to fit it all in when you know it's going to be a busy day. I actually can't imagine what your commute to work every day looks like. I absolutely hate having to drive to the gym to work - it's 25 minutes each way. But from my house to where I work full time (desk job) it's only like 6 minutes LOL!

I suppose if there was public transportation it might be better, since I wouldn't have to concentrate so much on the drive. But then you have to worry about timing it out so that you arrive on time, etc.

Hope the visit to the dentist went well!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 02/12/2020:
The hygenist cleaning my teeth said that i don't brush well enough and to get a water pick!

also, the commute is a bit draining but does take more energy than driving. if i ever start driving again for a commute and when i know i'll be driving for a long time, i'd rejoin a gym.

___________________________________

Things I want to do tonight / tasks:

Walk home at least 1 mile again :) from the bus.

Look thru receipts (now i take photos/email them back to my email so i don't have to search thru the paper receipts anymore for lost copays) - i have been mailed a bill that i think i paid so i'm checking to see if i have a receipt....

Look thru discharge paperwork from hospital when i was there in fall - need the paperwork in order to being therapy / psych at a more LOCAL an closer place than where i am currently going..

Leg Exercises for strength, haven't done them recently.

___________________________________

On another note, I had diarhea that actually woke me up in the middle of the night last night.  I'm feeling better today. Might have been the whipped cream or could have been the high fiber gummies or a mix of everything i ate last night including a bit too much coffee.

Progress as of today: -2 lbs lost so far, only 0 lbs to go!

I was going to get up early this morning and do a workout, but when the alarm went off I cried a little bit, turned over and went back to sleep LOL. Just not a morning person at all!

I'm glad R is around to help you out; it's so nice to be able to count on someone from day to day!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 02/05/2020:
This habit is horrible...i fall back to sleep so quickly once my alarm goes off! and then i sleep for the next half hour!


innerpeace on 02/05/2020:
Be careful driving tonight, there is weather winter weather coming in, oh well it might not make LI, but still be careful.

yes, lately i'm all about the chocolate...i've almost finished up these truffles, thankfully. tho - i have other treats at home LOL.


bearcountrygg on 02/04/2020:
You guys have a nice vibe going on there at work....lots of food sharing and taking care of each other....do you work best when you are rushing around ? ( some people do)...or are you most productive if you have a little time to settle in when you get there?).....i always wanted to be a little early....I was just calmer to get started on my work.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 02/04/2020:
I do good work when it's rushed at the last moment and can work like that sometimes but NOT continuously as it has bad effects on my health. I have worked like that over weeks and months, but need some low key downtime too.

right now, work is NOT stressful and i have some time in the morning to eat breakfast and everything. i doubt it will be this way, always, for the rest of my career.
