(counting calories/walking/elliptical/weights)
Weight: 116.0

2300 - approx - excellent.

2day slightly high: 2200. healthy though.

Happy Sunday!

9:30 Late Breakfast: whole wheat cream of wheat with almond milk and stevia and 2 rice cakes 250. Saag on the rice cakes, around 3/4 cup of it at least 250. 500. maybe a sip of kombuchca too. 550.

Salad from friend 150, bagel with cheddar cheese on top and cream cheese 700, fruit 100 1500....so full ... 1650 beforehand workout and dinner Dinner back home after gym sausage 150, potato 150, Indian leftover 200, ice cream 100 600 2250 - dinner was at 9 and I'm so hungry still maybe a fruit ! Good night ! 2300 ;) .

Currently doing laundry and getting organized.

I'm going to take my cousin (kinda like 3rd cousin - not first cousin) out to lunch. He lives by me and is 60.  Very nice and smart man. He was born with many birth defects because of a situation at birth.  He was supposed to be a completely normal baby but because of a situation that happened at his birth, he has had to work around multiple physical handicaps but has proved to overcome them all by having a full time job until he retired not too long ago.  He was emplyed by Marriot / Sheraton hotels and also he exercises a lot - mostly bike riding.  He has proved to overcome all odds and is a true inspiration and wonderful, loving person. I am happy to finally catch up with him as i typically see him only 2x a year even though he lives really close (15min away). so this shall be good. He said he fell so i know i'll have to help him eat...so i cannot really go there thinking of myself that i'm going to eat this amazing meal and i'm going to have to help him which i'm happy to do.

AND I WAS JUST INVITED TO POOL WITH SAME COUSIN AFTER LUNCH AND HIS SISTER! CHEERS! gym will be much later :) great plans today! and sun! just need to poop, get back in shower shower and shave....as i didn't shave with the first shower...running a hair late but just got sausages cooked and laundry done - ready for the week!

Gym in later afternoon. Ricky invited me to go to a bar tonight to eat, i might. they do have salads. the bar is in walking distance to my apt...very close. we'll see. i know i'll be tired. it's been a great, full weekend.


I finally tried on the swimsuit i ordered that arrived this past Thursday and the top was huge - gotta ship it back. was debating just returning the whole suit and getting my full $ back. However, it IS a nice suit and if i could just get the right size top if I try again...So i'm going to try again. It was overpriced, but nice to wear a beautiful white suit on the beach, no!? haha.  The bottoms fit decently.  I'm going to look for my own packing tape so i don't have to tape it up at work & with the work tape...I've been returning things all week due to also ordering a bit too much from Old Navy and their own mistake of sending me the wrong size 2 times - no worries as i'm saving money by returning and also went on a "scavenger hunt" in nyc finding the Post Office (HUGE!) and a UPS store both close to work to do the returns at lunch which was fun...


Progress as of today: -2 lbs lost so far, only 6 lbs to go!

happy-1 on 07/08/2018:
Good on you! I wish I lived closer to my extended family.

Donkey on 07/08/2018:
^^ I wish I lived closer to my extended family too. Enjoy the lovely day at the pool with family - doesn't get better than that on a hot day. (Has it cooled off by you yet? Yesterday was cool for us, so relief is on its way to you. Today isn't too bad but hot & humid is on its return again on Monday... Just in time for the work week, eh?)

horn_of_plenty on 07/09/2018:
Same weather as u - family was a fun change of pace but doubt to see them too often - not enough time all the time

bearcountrygg on 07/08/2018:
Family all farther away now too......Have a nice day...sounds like a great way to spend your Sunday.

horn_of_plenty on 07/09/2018:
It was a great change of pace - didn't see male cousin for 6 months and other cousin didn't see in approx 10 YEARS. Not close. She was so nice ;)

Maria7 on 07/08/2018:
Hope you have a wonderful lunch/visit.

horn_of_plenty on 07/09/2018:

I see that...…..hard hat time eh?

Horn_of_plenty on 07/06/2018:
lol....i was underground but really most of the time was in an office and hard hat and goggles weren't necessary!!!!!!! hahaha. it was a great change of pace.

Donkey on 07/07/2018:
Very cool! A change of pace can be a very good thing.

Horn_of_plenty on 07/07/2018:
it was - needed this. and i was standing all day so i didn't go to walk or exercise any more after work since i was hurting...but it was a good thing - to see how i was holding up, etc., and to remember what it could be like to not work at a desk all day...a very good change of pace, to also see how the project i'm working on is actually being completed, what it looks down there, working conditions, etc.

Horn_of_plenty on 07/07/2018:
i also enjoyed assisting my project manager that i work with/for...seeing her work...watching the progress me and her personally made on what we had to do yesterday. we took a completely unorganized workspace of huge work drawings just seriously thrown all around and organized them into neat organized piles according to the area of the project each drawing is for...and we aren't done but the place now looks like an organized workspace!

graindart on 07/07/2018:
Just a quick note to say thanks for being so consistent in your posting daily. It's a daily reminder for myself that it is possible to eat in moderation on a daily basis.

Horn_of_plenty on 07/07/2018:
yes...it IS possible to eat in moderation. and surprisingly, the more moderate i have been able to become, the EASIER it becomes to be moderate. it's like it works together. when your body is constantly getting more of a balance, mentally & physically i feel more balanced and therefore i can make more balanced decisions and eat in a more balanced manner. also, i have learned to know how much i need to eat and how little to eat and what to strive for and also to know that if i eat too little, i am always nervous it'll backfire on me...and cause overeating.

all of my journal entering here has made me MUCH more aware and it's been a huge learning process.

one thing i like to do is eat big volumes and i wish i didn't care for that - but i do - so i use it to my benefit as much as i can...since i'm not much of an intuitive eater (not much for being able to stop when i'm full - i still struggle with it).

thank you for the kind and thoughtful comment!

it is soooo good. also good to add cinnamon but didn't have any with me - and i don't always need to add the flavor of cinnamon.

8am? a protein bar i wanted to try, but needed to do it when i was "off from work" because i didn't realize but it was a probiotic / prebiotic bar. it was amazing. low sugar. it was a chocolate bar filled of a raspberry really soft jelly, coconut flakes, and with chia seeds. very sweet. and just like the best type of candy you can imagine and low sugar. so tasty. sweetened with more natural things like stevia/erythritol. 200. 

i had it with some selzter sweetened with stevia and then went back to bed. and slept on and off till around 10 or 11. feels good, especially after going to gym the night before. sleep is important! and i got it!

11am kombucha but not much 50.

12:45 Lunch I wanted whole wheat hot cereal with almond milk 200 and a 9% Skyr Raspberry icelandic (greek thick style high fat) yogurt 170. very good...still craving now coffee but would have to leave apt for it. so no. 400.I didn't eat the fresh chicken burgers i made bc i'm going to a bbq with burgers later - and wasn't in mood to eat burgers all day!

650, good.

BBQ eating veggies huge amount 150

Ice cream and cookie 150

Chips 200, pretzels 150, too many stacys pita chips cinnamon sugar 400, hot dog 150, one small drink 100, turkey burger with hair of cheese 250. Total here 1200

2250....lol didn't really stay low cal but the damage isn't terrible.

2090 5day. Better a hair lower but not terrible !

I will keep cals relatively good until this bbq later where i plan to behave fully bc i prepped a TON of veggies for everyone!




Later i'm stopping at a BBQ, will not be out too late. Maybe a movie after with Ricky before going to sleep & work tomorrow! So happy to have a midweek day off, Donkey can relate...this is GREAT!

Unrelated, my Period is in really high gear, fast flow lol, so happy to not have plans early this morning! Instead i got some extra "beauty sleep" and cleaned up, prepped and cooked some things for today and seasoned chicken burgers for the week :) Happy to not be rushing around right now! 

My stomach is a bit rumbly so i'm happy to be home and near the bathroom!

also, another set of racks for shoes/bags etc. came in the mail so i'm putting it together. cleaning up and prioritizing. also decided to ship back some clothes to Old Navy - i went a little overboard and the sandals were around $40 and don't fit perfectly, returns are free and there's a post office i'll go to during lunch at work. next, i ordered a cotton dress in a SMALL and they sent me an EXTRA SMALL (but the winner is that this is the SECOND TIME they screwed this dress up on me....i already reordered the dress and this was their second attmept to get it right - but no worries, i'm just going to save money and return it fully). the dress was around $20 and the sandals $40. so that's savings in the end. i have enough sandals and dresses for the rest of the season. 

Progress as of today: -2 lbs lost so far, only 6 lbs to go!

Weight: 116.0

Kombucha 70

pumpernickel bagel with scallion cream cheese 600 and coffee 50

snack? almonds 100

lunch: small wrap with egg and avoacdo, very small. 250

out early probably at 1pm today....did extra walking with friend so not sure about jogging tomorrow?...i showed my friend a large train station that she'll be using to commute bc she moved from Queens to Long Island. I showed her the Long Island Railroad and took her on a short tour. We stopped a couple times along the way from work to the train station, so it took around half hour or a little longer as we looked in some stores.  Maybe more like 45 min. Then we took the subway from there to go home :)

snack before gym: small bar, seltzer with stevia and cherries. 200 and relaxing on the couch for like a half hour.

Working for a lower calorie day...I would be happy with 1700 cal.

Tuesday avg 1700

bigger dinner: saag with cheese leftovers, curry cauliflower 350, ice cream 250...yup! 600.oh and grilled peppers 50.

1950 - good.

Weekly avg 2050 = good.


gym after work - had a GOOD workout. abs are starting to improve. 

no interest to diet more to lose weight, just to increase cardio


after work before i go home: quick trip to bank, quick trip to H&M to pick up stretchy, strapless bras. cheap and perfect to wear under ANY shirt. 


Finally it's that time of the month, really happy about it as I knew it was coming for at least 3 days before i could tell....happy when the symptoms beforehand finally lead into it...and knowing that it will all be over soon !  i think i'll lose weight afterwards. ...not working to lose weight, really what i need is to get more cardio fit.

Progress as of today: -2 lbs lost so far, only 6 lbs to go!

bearcountrygg on 07/03/2018:
I agree with your not dieting....I think from what I understand is that you really are more interested in building muscle and strength...muscle weighs more...so the scales may not be so relevant....you are in GREAT shape!!!! Your FB pics are not showing any fat at all.....GO YOU!!!!

Horn_of_plenty on 07/04/2018:
yeah it's more about strength as my weight is not very far from what i'd ultimately want to be - it's not even really a difference of more than 5 pounds. it's really an issue as you said i want more strength and ability to run in my legs as well as increase my heart's capacity to power me thru a jog. YES...it's much more important right now to work on my fitness :)

Horn_of_plenty on 07/04/2018:
but i do have a little "flab" at my stomach area and when i put in work at gym, it's annoying that i am not burning all the calories i eat to keep my stomach even flatter. BUT, i'm not about to really lower calories a lot. so this is where i am at :) in general i'm happy. just don't want to gain more weight, because still i gained just under 5lbs from my lowest, and it's really easy to just keep gaining!

happy-1 on 07/03/2018:
Good job! I appreciate that you model positive choices.

Horn_of_plenty on 07/04/2018:
I do make right choices sometimes :) THANK YOU!

Donkey on 07/04/2018:
Were you able to leave work early? My boss had everyone staying until 5pm... Something was up; he was in a bad mood in the morning.

Horn_of_plenty on 07/04/2018:
5pm that is very stinky. i have a nice boss when it comes to holidays. i think the office in Queens gets out at 2pm...we got out at 1pm. i am glad - got a ton more activity in after work. sorry you had to stay for the full time.

The weekend was pretty good :-) I have mixed feelings about some of it..

Home: kombucha 100

8am: coffee with milk/stevia 50, wrap 100, avocado 100, chicken/vegies 150

Snacks: almonds 250

Lunch: another of those wraps, above, 350, celery with a little salt. 100. 450. 

dinner: ice cream 280, chocolate triple cream yogurt (not worth it, not very chocolatey)170, chips 150 600

1850 :)

3day: 2070 :-)


I really need to lower cals a hair bc i am not so pleased with my shape...but at the same time, i feel i could lose an inch if i get more cardio in...like BCGG this is just a "moment in time" and i can make changes. I don't want to rush changes bc i really want to run someday...and i'm working on it now...but don't want to rush & get another injury.  The court officer thing is not happening yet ...i have time to improve and possibly get in....i just can't rush it and risk injury. 

The classes i've signed up for are done..

Beach yesterday was fun but i am not fully comfortable anymore with a certain person...and not sure how the rest of the summer will play out....

I enjoy hanging out with some friends just one on one and others in a group. mostly one on one..but a lot of the one on one friends that i'd like to bring together like so there's 3 in the group - they dislike each other. it's hilarious

i don't know if i actually want to go to the beach each weekend, probably not for the entire summer every weekend.

i get bored just doing the same thing..she's not interested in new beaches.

right now, i'm a bit antsy. 

i know i just need to up my cardio slowly, and not forget my fitness goals right now.


I'm reading an interesting book called Fat!So? ...it's a book about how it shouldn't be a crime to say you are fat...and the author is overweight herself, but in good health otherwise. No diabetes or any other issue. I haven't gotten far in the book yet, but basically she's saying that having some extra pounds shouldn't be something frowned upon in society, especially when a person is otherwise healthy. She writes about her experiences as well as others'. There's a lot of medical facts and research but also funny quizzes...i'm not sure i'll finish the book...

Progress as of today: -2 lbs lost so far, only 6 lbs to go!

happy-1 on 07/02/2018:
Sounds like you should look on meetup.com for people meeting up at new beaches!

horn_of_plenty on 07/02/2018:
you def did get a gist of my entry today...you are def on the right track here :)

happy-1 on 07/02/2018:
Maybe even doing beach workouts first!t

horn_of_plenty on 07/02/2018:
yeah, this would be cool..i should look to see if there's outdoor gyms :) by me!

happy-1 on 07/02/2018:
Meetup has people running fitness bootcamps, out here especially they are on the beach and people just hang out after.

bearcountrygg on 07/02/2018:

Late 10am-10:30 breakfast: strawberries 100 tops, wrap 100, lots of saag and one piece of the paneer cheese 300, egg 100. kombucha 50. total here: 650.

1150 coffee healthy dinner bread 100 chicken 250 salad 200 550 1600 before gym

2050 total.

gym was 30 min bc i got there too late and they closed after 30 min...all is good - got a lot done today.


Plans are to do all my laundry so i'm super prepared for the Holiday week ahead as well as the beach tomorrow with my friend Christine :-P Super happy. And tomorrow should be a beautiful day at the beach! It's really nice beach days all the way yesterday thru Tuesday coming..so i'm happy to be there tomorrow...and Wednesday the 4th looks cloudy so i'm not yet sure of my plans. Ricky invited me to see a movie at his place, and i may take him up on his offer!!

Last night the beach worked out perfectly with some Shuffleboard and a free concert that we only watched a little of - we mostly walked and played shuffleboard :) Makes me content with refraining from doing cardio today as i'm enjoying some rest and relaxation at home!

Tonight is the gym - so it gets done 3x a week is always the goal. 

oh, and sometime today Ricky said he's stopping by to hang one last piece of wall art for me!! cheers! I love my beautiful apt, more beautiful thanks to both the ideas of Christine & Ricky.

Progress as of today: -2 lbs lost so far, only 6 lbs to go!

bearcountrygg on 06/30/2018:
I need to look up paneer cheese...never heard of that.

Horn_of_plenty on 06/30/2018:
an Indian version of cottage cheese - they then add acid in the process of making it and it stays solid in cube form even in warm foods. its higher in protein than a lot of cheeses with a very mild taste - its good...it comes in the spinach dish and i can't ask for them to take it out...so i end up throwing it out a lot or eating a few!

Donkey on 06/30/2018:
Sounds like you've planned well for Sunday and Wednesday! I have no plans for Wednesday, but I'm thinking maybe I should, for myself... ya know?

Horn_of_plenty on 06/30/2018:
YES! plans don't have to be huge...! just have something in mind you want to do...it'll feel good to have done something on that day off...

we have a chance of a very cloudy day Wednesday. if so, i'll stay home and do cardio...and watch a movie with ricky that we rent. we didn't end up hanging my picture today, but we watched a movie we found in the Red Box...it turned out great, i think it was called Gringo

bearcountrygg on 07/01/2018:
we have cheese curds here...sounds like something similar

Totally planned to sleep in - did it successfully. 

Late Breakfast: wrap 100, half avocado 160 with garlic/salt, egg 100, coffee 50. 400.

Lunch: chickpea salad 300?? a coworker gave me and tomatoes 100 (lots). 

Snack: almonds 100? later a decaf coffee 100 extra milk.

Naan 150, beef burger 200, lots of Indian veggies in a little sauces 400. 750 1750

cookies, come beer   2050 total

Week ends at 2100 per day - decent.


Dinner: veggies and Indian food....tbd...friend wanted me to pick him up some too...at home, i'm planning on a wrap with indian veg and some deli meat! Ricky will join me for dinner too!


Went into work late on purpose (made up most of the time lol...little bad today on purpose...). Happy to sleep in bc my workout got started really late last ight at 8pm, home around 10pm from gym. I had gotten drenched in the rain walking home without a jacket/umbrella (clothes still hanging wet at home today since last night!). so i relaxed and had a nice light drink of a large can of "Spindrift" water - my new favorite! I sweeted it extra with Stevia of course.  Tastes like delicious soda - Strawberry flavor...so i went to gym really late, had a banana for a  little energy since my snack was around 5:30 and now it was 8pm starting my workout. Everything worked out last night and sleeping in helped me so much, although i did feel completely dead walking to the bus and on the train, i feel better now at work.

I don't have much work today - my superior is on vacation and i finsihed my assignments. i can review, for sure, for my own clarification and knowledge of what i did though..but first writing to you all and relaxing lol...i don't think today is a day that requires too much work here at work from me - I am seriously taking it easy...and i plan to enjoy the weekend and the beach on the 4th...and not be really tired like i have been for past holidays, etc.


Tonight after work I'm going home first. Bringng home Indian food to share with Ricky as he requested it since i am always saying how good it is at this particular takeout spot right on my way home near the train where i work in city now...so i'll get that food and take it on my hour commute home haha...i do this frequently bc i like this food and like eating it on weekend. 

We have NO INDIAN restaurants where we live directly in my neighborhood that i'm aware of - we have to drive over 20 min to get to them - sometimes 30min. So having this one good Indian restaurant in the city is a blessing. There's one more, but it's not as reliable with it's offereings bc it's smaller and a lower quality. but i like that there's two options. Two Indian restaurants in a big city in the area where i work is NOTHING. Indian is NOT popular everywhere yet. It's mostly popular in the neighborhoods where Indian (and related ethnicities) live - which is not in MANHATTAN...but is in areas of Queens that are like i said 20-30min from me. And those places are GREAT in Queens. Very popular in some neighborhoods.

After we eat dinner, Ricky and i are going to a concert at the beach! It's free! Parking is free too! It's at a smaller bandshell. The music is a cover band that is known to be pretty good and playing Beatles songs! They call themselves the Liverpool Shuffle.  And speaking of shuffle, i'm hoping to also get a few rounds of shuffleboard in before the concert starts :) They have shuffleboard courts at this beach - it's called Jones Beach and highly popular and huge public beach on LI that has just about everything!

So we'll get home late tonight, and i plan to sleep in again tomorrow. Saturday will be low key - laundry / small food prep - with gym in evening (keeping the routine!) and Sunday i'll be with my old friend Christine at beach all day/dinner on way home...and go to bed in time to wake up for work Monday morning!  I may also do some cardio Saturday early based on how i feel.

Weekend is looking fantastic..


Progress as of today: -2 lbs lost so far, only 6 lbs to go!

Friday sounds like it was a lovely day -- not too bad at work, fun after hours :-)

Well done on the calories too!

I hope that your weekend will include cardio - reach for those goals!

So far, so good :-) Very happy about how the end of the week (yesterday) panned out and that i'm not feeling like death today! I really planned the week, which i thought was going to be sooo difficult with a union meeting and a class involved during the week...i planned it really well! super happy. <3

thank you Donkey. i'm feeling much better than usual.
