______________________________________________

I'd like to finish one of my books today...have like 35-40% left and I want to watch a movie tonight that I borrowed from the library - all the things I have been putting off. I'll save my cooking burgers and stuff until Tuesday when I am off - I don't have plans and I don't want plans - happy just relaxing for a bit.

really i am enjoying relaxing. i see myself relaxing more this week also. ...i was going to try to see a broadway show with my friend this week, but i think i'd rather sleep early Thursday / do gym rather than be in the city watching a broadway show...i have these free post dated tickets...i'll wait to use them - maybe labor day week or something. - i'm trying to use them on a short week, when it's easier to go out and party more bc of one less day to the work week.

Progress as of today: 2 lbs lost so far, only 3 lbs to go!

innerpeace on 07/02/2017:
You started early! could you not sleep?

horn_of_plenty on 07/02/2017:
Bc I slept a ton during the day - all is good and feeling good too!

Partying! GOod TIMES!

horn_of_plenty on 07/02/2017:
Last night was great fun in the city and overall life is pretty darn great! I just stress that I will not be able to jog by end of summer but I keep forgetting that I have two months to perfect it! And then I have a few more months till when the actual academy starts in January. I may even change my goal - and it would be to jog 1.5 miles straight by end of summer - who cares anyhow right ? As long as I keep improving :-)

total today is just fine, 2200 cal. excellent. and visited grandma finally.

Weekly average is very good: 2070 = SUCCESS this week! wouldn't change a thing calorie-wise. i had some diet coke today, but will be staying fully away from energy drinks the rest of the weekend for sure. my skin has been so nice, i should let it rest and get even better. it's been awhile since i had nice skin. I feel a difference with the more sleep and less caffeine i have!

_____________________________________________

FRIDAY Plans:

1- I picked up my "juiced up" revolutionalized hamster cage from the hardware store. This cafe is amazing & I'll be SURE to post a photo or two. It's seriously SWEET! You'll see!  I picked it up around 7:20am - before work - and due to really low traffic, i was still EARLY to work instead of only on time!

2- Working today duh....not out early bc we will prob get out early Monday, not today.

3- Get cash back from supermarket for the weekend as I do not have even a dollar to my name in my wallet right now!  I'll buy some seltzer and get cash back like $40.- as soon as I get outta work and then drive to see my grandma for a little while. Can't wait to be relaxing at home, really.

4- Visit Grandma after work & do her hair with new hairclips / barrettes that i bought specifically for her (she has some long-ish pretty straight hair (but not so much of it anymore..) ) but it's shiny and nice and should be in clips and not around her face or on her neck. So i bought the supples she needs!

5- Home for dinner, relaxing, reading & SLEEPING IN ON SATURDAY!  You can bet i'll take a sleeping pill around 8-9pm and sleep in tomorrow till around...I don't know yet. LOL. but sleep is calling my name!

Today and Yesterday i've been having some diet soda and caffine. eh. treat....must lay off it though on weekend. my skin is getting really nice with more sleep and less artificial sugars & caffeine.

I am dropping off something for coworker after work but then home free...no plans except to relax tonight! bed early. 

i think around 2050 today? totally forgot .

______________________________________________

I am def skipping an optional union meeting today bc i've been running around TOO MUCH lately and i am eager to watch a movie tonight at home. It's from the Library so it needs to be returned. I really want to watch it tonight with dinner and go to bed early.  I need this more than a meeting that starts at 6pm and ends at 7pm and then i'll eat and then just fall asleep and wake up early again for work and the rest of the week the same way = no good = that's why i am looking forward to a quiet night tonight.

The weekend was also quite busy all night Friday night till 2am and Saturday woke up early for hair and then too tired for gym so i rested...Sunday was busy all day will 10pm at night when i was finally back home after doing errands and seeing a friend back at home after a trip to NJ...

....so what is good for me is NOT going to a meeting (i do go to at least half of them so that is enough)..and i'm looking to change careers as we all know...as well as trying to keep up the gym and now getting into jogging - the union meeting doesn't fit in right now so it's being skipped - sometimes doing EVERYTHING is NOT the best method. Even thinking about the meeting is causing me anxiety. So I will NOT go. Time at home and time to myself is important and cannot always be skipped. 

I am waking up a little later now that it's summer - i will wake no earlier, most of the time!, than 6am. I used to have to wake up around 5:45...but now i can set the clock a tad later due to MUCH LESS traffic bc schools are out.  But today I got outta bed too late and arrived at work almost 8:10 instead of 8am - no good.  

It's nice to be able to wake up around 6, and not 5:45 :)  I can now leave around 7:25-7:30 instead of 7:20 and be on time easily. I think.  :-)

innerpeace on 06/27/2017:
I agree along time is best! Enjoy your movie.

I have been finding it hard to sleep later, once I see it is light out I feel I must get up - even on the weekends.

Horn_of_plenty on 06/27/2017:
lol, even without blinds, i am now able to sleep in...amazing. never like that before!

but there's no problem in getting up...i just really enjoy my rest these days...(these couple years)!


Donkey on 06/27/2017:
Hope you enjoy the movie!

Horn_of_plenty on 06/27/2017:
nope...totally went to the meeting OMG! i dropped a favor off for a coworker that always waits till last minute and since i was there, and 15 min late, i actually decided to sit through the rest of the meeting. LOL.

3day average; 1980, good.

______________________

Leaving work early at 3pm for dr appt at 4pm. I will be out earlier after the appt than if i were working, so, i will go to gym today bc i have skipped it since last Tuesday....lately i am being a little more free with my workout schedule....and trying to reduce stress. 

It was a busy weekend....mostly.....so i chose to rest in the spare time rather than exercise. I think it was actually a GREAT choice as I feel pretty good this AM.

I didn't sleep great bc i was so busy yesterday up to right before bed...so aroudn 4am i cooked the turkey burgers before the ground meat spoiled and also hard boiled some eggs. So now I have plenty of protein for the week....

I just need bananas....and to probably buy the kombucha that i love...after the gym tonight.  I must get my act together and do nothing before the gym tonight after the dr appt. I do not want to get royally behind with weights...I am already decreasing my sessions from 3 to 2 per week on purpose bc i was having a lot of trouble balancing workouts with jogging 2x per week (also which i'm falling behind, lol).

I was at a farmer's market over the weekend. A lady was selling home made kombucha for $4.00 a bottle (beer bottle size). I thought of you.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 06/27/2017:
I wonder if it was good...i would have bought at least one bottle from her!
