Big city vs little city mentality. I don't think I could handle that long of a commute time. Living in a city with population around 60k, there are times I decide not to pick something up at the store because it's "clear across town on the totally opposite side". Of course that only means it would take 15 minutes to drive to......

horn_of_plenty on 09/17/2018:
lol yes...and believe me, it's not because of mileage...it's due to traffic only...the long commute! LOL.

horn_of_plenty on 09/17/2018:
i would love a shorter commute, but, will not be moving out of my city or to another job to secure that :) instead, i take it as being better than others' commutes...some commute 2 hours ONE WAY.

BearCountryGG on 09/17/2018:
D was a construction superintendent for many years in Detroit and his commute was about 1 hour each way...he used that time to plan what his crew would do..on his commute in the morning...and then thought about the days problems on his way home....when he did get home...he was ready to deal with us...LOL

horn_of_plenty on 09/17/2018:
yes, i see how his lifestyle was similar to many of the electrical workers / foreman over here...!

my dad always thinks of his problems at work...my mom used to yell at him if he "cried" about them over dinner lol.

Good job of self care today.

Looks like it was a good day in spite of being late to work. Hope you got to bed early like you had hoped.

horn_of_plenty on 09/18/2018:
pretty much yes, now i just have to stop some of the acid reflux i have been having for the past couple weeks...i think most due to eating too close to bed!

Donkey on 09/16/2018:
I thought of you last night, while indulging in my own dinner, sort of like I was celebrating with you. :)

What kind of chocolate protein spread do you have? I'm just about finishing up the generic Nutella (so not really Nutella, but generic) and looking for something with better nutritional value, if there's something out there.

Horn_of_plenty on 09/16/2018:
i will get back to you on this soon...there's a few options.~~

BearCountryGG on 09/16/2018:
I didn't know that they made whole wheat goldfish crackers......when they came out with the multi colored ones I gave up looking at them...LOL....I figured they were heading more and more toward toddlers...LOL

Horn_of_plenty on 09/16/2018:
still, they are junk as besides being "whole wheat" all the other additives and junk remain in the whole wheat goldfish...so you aren't missing anything...i just like them bc they are single serve bags and to me it feels like can induglence!

8/8:3-am Breakfast Oats and almond milk 200, chocolate protein butter 250, kombucha 50. 500. 

Snacking pb on rice cake and chocolate 200 750

12:30 lunch high fiber english muffin with butter 150, pepperoni stick 100. 250.


will enjoy dinner out tonight for my bday :)

Banana 100 1100.....will have some carbs after gym ....



Overall, I got good sleep last night. I did wake up 1-2 times but overall, i slept many hours thankfully. Lately, it feels really good getting a long sleep!

After breakfast, I want to continue to read my book. 

Then, i'll shower and go out to the farther supermarket (10-15 min lol away) to get the better veggies / fruits - better quality and prices.

Then back home, put them away :)...lunch or a snack...

Then biking out to the gym for a full workout there...

Later tonight, going to celebrate MY BIRTHDAY!!!! with friends meeting in the city at a restaurant that serves Cardoncello mushrooms (aphrodisiacs!, for real!) the restaurant just opened in summer, then a short comedy club that i got tickets for on groupon for $15 each with the purchase also of a couple drinks there...it's still cheaper than most places! :)

Then home  :)

Tomorrow, I'll relax also, maybe a movie, no laundry until Wednesday, and a bike/jog session.

I also want to prefer food for the week, tomorrow, like the cauliflower fried rice i've been wanting to make again!

The reason for light plans is that i prefer them right now. I prefer to have some time at home. I have a couple busier weekends coming at the end of this month / early October...so for now, some quiet at home is perfect.

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

graindart on 09/15/2018:
Glad you got a good night's sleep. I was in a hotel last night and always sleep terribly when away from home. Went to bed around 10:15p. Woke up at 3:30a, stayed awake until after 4:40am. Woke up again at 5:10, 5:50, 6am, and finally just got up for the day at 6:25am.

Horn_of_plenty on 09/16/2018:
yes, my mind and body to crave a good night's sleep...when i get sleep like yours, the following day(s) are much more difficult and i start to crave sleep! and eat more!

Donkey on 09/15/2018:
Have a good time tonight! Sounds like a delightful schedule for today.

Horn_of_plenty on 09/16/2018:

Horn_of_plenty on 09/16/2018:
no, i'll be checking it out right now...opening a new tab....

Horn_of_plenty on 09/16/2018:
...very interesting!

BearCountryGG on 09/16/2018:
I can only see good things with that cauliflower rice......

Horn_of_plenty on 09/16/2018:
yes, i keep forgetting that i don't really need to buy much at the supermarket, if i'd just cook the darn (but awesome) frozen cauli rice i have in my freezer!

i already threw out a head of cabbage that i was planning to slow cook, but, never did...

graindart on 09/16/2018:
Staying so low in calorie count when celebrating your birthday......impressive. Most birthdays of mine, I probably have averaged 4000+ calories without even trying. Last year was the only recent exception since I was on a 4 month streak at the time and stayed below 2000 calories. My birthday is coming up in another week and I haven't decided what I'm going to do yet. If I don't screw up before then, I'll be at around day 20 of my on-plan streak. I know when I get there I'll have 2 opposing trains of thought. One will be that I need to stay on-plan to continue my streak. The other will be that I deserve an off-plan day as my reward for doing so well for 20 days straight. Right now, I'm leaning towards staying on-plan, but I know as the day approaches I'll probably start leaning the other way.

Horn_of_plenty on 09/16/2018:
i have found that lightly eating is better than fasting before going out...but then i also try to order the best items on the menu....no pasta or other high cal options for me!

next, i had worked out and knew i'd never a little carbs and protein...i had a cliff bar, but didn't want all 250 cals...so i actually tore a little piece off and threw the smaller piece in the garbage so all i ate was 150 instead of the 250 cals...LOL.

every bit helps before going out....luckily, the items on the menu were surprisingly healthy...

i know what you mean...i did much worse celebrating last sunday with my family when i ate 2500...what a waste, too.

As always, you consistency is inspiring.

horn_of_plenty on 09/14/2018:
ty for the acknowledgment on my consistency...lately my calories are a tad higher so i have to be careful, but i was moving around much more thru the weekend...not so much this week, though ;) but still, i'm balancing.

whenever i add in some cardio, i'm able to balance my weight so much better!

5day: 2175


Slept thru alarm but got ready but hair late bc bus issues too! no issue though, we are good and i'm here, awake at work! 

I have been having lots of emotions as of late. I was really mean to my sister in how i let her know i didn't approve of her actions or rather inaction. i may have gone overboard especially that she's pregnant, but i cannot apologize at all because if i do apologize then she will take it as i was wrong...which i don't want....my bday was another interesting time with my parents...and i was extremely confrontational on fb messages to my sister letting her know 100% i didn't approve of her not wishing me a happy bday on facebook...i called her selfish for knowing that i like facebook but not thinking of me to wish me a bday there. i told her i had to defriend her, because she had told me she's not into facebook, wasn't on it all day (doubt that) and that she'd prefer not to wish me a happy bday there...which i thought was strange. so, i defriended her..i'll write about it on my page....


also, my sister told me that facebook isn't the real world ... and that she'd rather wish me a happy bday in real world...she also stopped liking my posts...and would tell my parents about my posts....so....she's totally unfriended as i cannot trust her anymore unfortunately. she thinks she always knows best, many times she can give good advice, but as of late she does nothing.

i do understand she's pregnant and under stress, but her behavior has always been similar in regards to this kinda behavior...i cannot give her any extra understanding...especially as the one thing i like about FB is the communication...and the people closest to me are the ones I expect to care my about me on my bday.

I am not sure why she didn't leave me a message. she could have done it on the over an hour ride from NYC to my parent's house on my bday.

she didn't call or text me on my bday...she did show up with a beautiful bouquet of flowers that they picked up on the way over from a store close to them in NYC....

i don't know, i am not sure....i just didn't want to give her any leeway...

there was a wedding she couldn't attend at least minute on 8/25...she still hasn't mailed her check to them as of this weekend...

she's not considering anyone but herself.

i understand she's pregnant, but not her thinking process.

she had told me she's too busy to text me back a little ways ago, that she's working and pregnant and unable to respond to me. i didn't like that either.

and i invited her to my bday party on facebook, she chose not to respond either a yes or a no. she just simply ignored it, but did see it.

eh, i just think she should be a little more communicative.

and for facebook, if i'm close with you, and you are on fb, and i like things of yours and posts with you in them, and i see you are a little active, but you don't correspond to me and i feel it should be since you are a good friend or my SISTER, i do take it personally, and delete you. to me, when i had other friends posting photos of kids and i would comment and like them, i would have liked those people i deleted to support me.

to me,facebook should be equal (unless the person is hardly on there or posting...)

my sister doesn't post much, but i know she goes on here and there. i just didn't love her answers back to me....and i took it to heart a bit too much.

eh, i cannot apologize. on her bday, i'll text her plainly happy bday. nothing else. i won't see her....maybe i'll leave a voice text message of happy bday. nothing more. i had enough of my sister these days...

just feeling bad i was so mean with her and she's pregnant...but not up to apologize because i have to stand up for my principles.

My first thought about your 2 am marshmallows was the old joke about the person who dreamed that they were eating marshmallows and woke up with their pillow in their mouth........guess yours had calories...so I guess you really did eat marshmallows in the middle of the night...LOL

horn_of_plenty on 09/12/2018:

1pm after lunch snack: Atkins small bar 150

850 :) i'm happy but also feel like this day is flying lol...and that nothing's getting done.


Chocolate 100 950 1800 total :-) 3 day: 2200/day :) gooood!


Calorie goals for today are 1800-2000. since my weekly avg specifically due to eating cake last night which tasted BAD is 2400 per day - not terrible tho!


no exercise today. day off. but errands galore :) It is the Jewish New Year and I did take the day off...but I have been so busy that I have decided to do personal errands on this day instead of home with parents watching the services. I needed to take the time to finish / take care of things that are semi-time sensitive:

DONE - LAUNDRY is going now & i got lucky nobody is down there :) - DONE!

DONE - Registering for MDA Muscular Dystropy walk fundraiser and Kidney Foundation Walks - one is in October and one is in November :)..SIGNUPS ONLINE and i wanted to do this at work, but work has been busy and i keep taking too much time away from work lately, so this is a big time waster so i decided to do signups at home, especially because i'm signing up two friends along with me as well! - DONE!

1. Pull $100 from my secondary back account that i don't use and the $100 is just sitting there for over a year when i could make use of that money better in my primary account right now!...and looking later on this year into transferring all the CD account from the secondary bank to my primary bank so once again i am banking in ONE bank, not two.

2. Drive to UPS & Library since my printer isn't hooked up i'll use the libary's - Returning amazon 30lb foam coated weighted rod for weightlifting because it is so much heavier feeling than the 30lb barbell at gym! I have to also print the return stickers at the library...and go to UPS to affix them on there...and fix up the packaging which got semi-destroyed when it was originally shipped to me....I ORDERED 20LB WEIGHTED BAR INSTEAD :) TO COME SOON!

3. Return another Amazon package - same as Item #2, just another small package!  which didn't work out also - also involving weightlifting - rubber grips for the handles...but when i put the grips on the handles, they become way to big in circumferance for my small hands so i'll use the dumbells without the grips...just my own gloves will do...

3A. also at library, print tickets for Nelson Mandela Grandson speaking event at local library, FREE!

4. Pick up the photos that were developed at CVS from my disposable camera - they called a day ago only that the photos are ready :)

5. Hang my last wall mural in my kitchen :) finally, with Ricky

DONE 6. figure out prices and buy groupons for visiting Ground Zero / One World Observatory...i have a friend from Australia, female, coming to stay in NYC..and i'm meeting her for a day of tourism!!!!! She gladly accepted my offer to see this site and I'm gladly finally seeing it with her...she will be really great company! :) :) :) I haven't seen her since i was 20 and we were music camp counselors in upstate NY....i'm lucky for FB. DONE...looked at the 2 options and left it up to her :) one includes a full tour, which i particularly like guided tours and planned events...and the other is tickets to the observatory and we could walk around ourselves...left her with the options :) DONE.


Other items for tomorrow include:

tomorrow is a HUGE gym day, so i don't want a thousand other activities going on...because i plan on it being very big with snacks (i eat up to two bananas usually on days where i spend extra time at the gym) at gym and probably over 3 hours working out if i can ride to gym on bike - unless it rains. then, my gym workout i plan to spend 2.5-3 hours there without biking.

cooking some cauliflower fried rice - this is a definite!!!!!!!!!!!

researching a good slow cooker cabbage recipe

looking into cooking bags for my slow cooker (gift from friend) to get new cooking bags so i don't have to clean it much every time i use it!

cleaning the hamster cage either today or tomorrow - this is a MUST!

adding money to my laundry card at housing office - can wait till next week if i want...but need to get on top of this :)


I feel as though i'm forgetting so many things, but the awesome thing is that i have some time next week to also prepare things

Horn_of_plenty on 09/11/2018:

I am gearing up for a gym workout...it will be on the lighter side, i'm sore in my lower half from yesterday's parade. afterwards, i'm going home to celebrate the New Year holiday with my family and my bday...a rush of a day, but it is what it is and thankful for it...i just gotta get out of this apt or i'll have to rush everything before seeing my parents, needing to get there around 3pm..which is quite early.

I turned 36 today and feel good about it. Overall, 35 had major challenges and changes regarding working and commutes and new coworkers and offices. It became VERY difficult with exercise and cardio and for awhile i was stuck and constantly falling behind due to scheduling issues and getting pretty sick in January.  In the end though, I finished the year strong and caught up to where I pretty much was this time last year!!!I Cardio is pretty decent now.

I see 36 as more straighforward. I think my opportunity to grow and become stronger will stay attainable all year long :)

I had a good, but extremely tiring, day yesterday walking in the Labor Day Parade...it's a big change to sitting at a desk all day...being up on feet from around 11-3pm straight...it's good for me, glad i went...and reinforces the importance to keep working out!

BearCountryGG on 09/09/2018:
Well...I sent you birthday wishes there too.....hope you have a great day!!! I do remember that being 36 was a very good year for me...and I'm sure it will be for you too.

Happy birthday! You have a whole new year to give it your all! Both physically and religiously!

I do not know the rules that you may follow. Will you be allowed to log in on the computer on Rosh Hashanah? My new refrigerator has a Shabbot mode -- how cool is that?

Horn_of_plenty on 09/11/2018:
thank you J donk for the bday wishes...my mind lately is swamped sorry not to reply other than my own mind is wacky lately! nothing on your post that was wrong, no worries!!!!!

i do not follow many rules, especially not this year as i have been very swamped with activities and knew that i needed at least yesterday to get things done that needed to be done at a certain time frame. sometimes i go to celebrate with my parents and watch the services on TV, not this year as i feel i needed to use the days doing tasks which worked out well but today i just need to also make sure i am rested for work tomorrow.!!!! i'm glad i had the time off.

yes, totally logging into DD and even putting in my timesheet using the work program from home! awesome. i took sick days, which can only be inserted into the program on the day you take them or after. if i waited sometimes till going back to work to enter them, i'd have to wait for separate checks...not good if you wanna be paid normally on friday! so i'm glad that's fixed....

....yes, very cool on your fridge!!! a lot of folks by me i am SURE have that mode...we've got a lot of Orthodox jews around here that do follow the customs.

Weight: 114.0

Saturday i was out all day....celebrating and Marching with the electrical union of NYC in the NYC Labor Day Parade. it was cool coincidence because of all the subways and stops we could get off, my typical work route was the way we took to get to the parade, getting off at the same exact subway stop (there's so many in NYC) that i get off everyday for work. The parade happens to be right near Rockefeller Center and that's also where i work!

I've not been commenting as much bc it's been a very fast paced couple weeks & will stay that way until this coming Monday, tomorrow!
