I'm happy to see some beef in your meals...great source of iron...

horn_of_plenty on 05/09/2022:
yes, really happy to have this; the good stuff too..and not corned beef lol...the real thing! happy to be eating it. and the pieces are quite large so one piece is like a serving of the cut up beef chunks from supermarket...great move here.

will make on and off beef in this method as well as chicken thighs.

horn_of_plenty on 05/09/2022:
may also see about pork tenderloin, depending on pricing.


Donkey on 05/09/2022:
^Bear has an excellent point!

Glad you had a quick walk this morning. I wish I weren't so reliant on my bike rides to relax my hips & back, or I'd do more walking, I think.

This sounds REALLY silly but I'd be interested to hear if you find a Mother's Day card for your mom.

horn_of_plenty on 05/09/2022:
and when i see mom next, i'll bring flowers that i pick up that day as her "mothers day gift."...perfect simple gift and not too expensive. she loves flowers.

i think it's great you do the bike to wake up and relax your hips in morning. i want to do more bike.

i'm happy to include the beef in my meals, yes!

yes, i'll see about the card, won't go crazy if it's not there, i won't get one this year..!!


happy-1 on 05/09/2022:
Mmm babka.

horn_of_plenty on 05/09/2022:
glad it wasn't a big piece!

FB cap jacket return requested 4.17.22- check on progress on my photos, email...haven't heard response, ..follow up completed Saturday, 5.7.22 DONE...waiting on response again. FB offered a refund which i'll take and see if i need to send the jacket back...may score the jacket anyways...and then i'll end up wearing it most probably next year LOL...we'll see! it doesn't have a tag stating what's in it...and it doesn't seem to be down as they advertised it was - the chinese brand seller on fb.

Review next weekend - TRP account - review with dad around 5.25.22 about progress and if transfer is completed. - received new paperwork in mail on 5.6.22 -  need to open package and review...to open/review SUNDAY, 5.15.22...

Keep checking for polls - to see about if i am chosen or not to work ..nothing yet..starting to cancel one weekend already to see sister ..too much to work one day and hang out on the other...becomes not enough time to exercise, etc on weekend; so canceled the polls for this coming weekend already.


5.8.22 Sunday - HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY TO THE MOMS HERE ON DD!

9a Breakfast: easy - banana and coffee 150; micro choc chic waffle (eggo brand i think?) with apricot jelly 200. 350...

Weights in AM thru early PMso i know they are done....DONE!

1:15-1:30p leave apt: bring some things to Jen for her mom and her as a thank you and to help them out a little bit: 2 strong not dull knives (seems they had like one knife?); few clementines, toner i haven't used that's been in my closet -  for Jen, few sample perfumes for Jen's daughter, a pretty much unused small saucepot for making coffee, same for a large pot for sauteeing/making meat etc, 2 sponges. 2 cans of bubbly seltzer, instant coffee (not the whole container, the last 1/3 or so of mine) for my friend Jen to use to try for making cold or hot coffee to see if they like it;...ok! back home! DONE :)

PM, while on bike...Call Christine - chat & then discuss planning of the trip for the overnight to Peach Festival - New Hope, PA. discuss pros and cons of what day we go (friday or saturday to drive there?) and hotel options googling...would be good for us to do...DONE!

Also talk about asking my SUPER (superintendent) for a raise, instead of the owner of company. old boss that i still work with told me to do it....maybe i will. he suggested asking for a very different amount than i make now...he suggested asking for just over 15k more than i make...i need to talk to Christine and also my parents about it....he said i am worth more than i am making. i could use the money, duh...the money could help me for little things and bigger things (like traveling, bike tune up that is $50 just for a bicylce i haven't ridden in 2 years,car insurance bills...those things, and to save it...). basically, making more would mean i could save more, in the end...if anyone has an opinion on this, please share, it's ok if it's not in support or in support of going forward with this to super...just thinking about it, for now....sorta DONE.

CALL MOM Mother's Day -i texted her already; to call her later TONIGHT...DONE!!!

MAKE BEEF SOUP OVERNIGHT  Add beef soup (not really stew) ingredients to crock pot to make it as it takes 6hrs on low :) cut up and dice up... says it will take 9 hrs on LOW, may cook overnight and put away in AM before work, but prepping it all doing the chopping....yup!...cooking overnight!....DONE!

Have a nice visit with your friend and her family...

horn_of_plenty on 05/08/2022:
thank you, today is just to drop off...not stay...too much for me before work tomorrow...but i hope they are happy to receive some stuff, it's not new things mostly, but half quantities of things...except for the pots and sponges.. :) thank you, BEAR :)


Donkey on 05/08/2022:
That's very interesting about the Exec's opinion (and prodding) to ask for a raise. How helpful to have his perspective and input, which he could give to you now that he won't be working with you directly.

It's nice to visit with your friend & her mom, and to give things that they might need.

horn_of_plenty on 05/08/2022:

FB offered a refund which i'll take and see if i need to send the jacket back...may score the jacket anyways...and then i'll end up wearing it most probably next year LOL...we'll see! it doesn't have a tag stating what's in it...and it doesn't seem to be down as they advertised it was - the chinese brand seller on fb.

TRP account - review with dad around 5.15.22 about progress and if transfer is completed. - received new paperwork in mail on 5.6.22 -  need to open package and review...to open/review SUNDAY, 5.8.22...call dad to discuss after his trips (2 places, 2 weeks).

5.7.22 Saturday: 

Breakfast: easy to digest/feel good: banana and coffee 150, gummy vits and small apricot 50, waffle micrwavable choc chip flavor small one 120 with jelly apricot flavor 30. 350. some seltzer/stevia also.

snacks:small amount chocolate 70.

Lunch: big lunch cooked by my friend's mom before she went out to work! omg. tacos. the meat was great with onion in it, and her grandaughter actual was stirring it. i brought the veggies and some blueberries. but they need a new pot or two as well as sponge. i don't use all mine...will bring it to them tomorrow. financially, her family is not in a similar place as my family. so i will bring a few things to them tomorrow as a bigger thank you to her and her grandaughter making us a meal. very generous. i did cut up veggies that i had brought; and left her a few. and my friend's leg is broken, so she didn't need to participate. i brought my guinea pig which she held for a long time, too. 3 smaller side taco tortillas 300, ground meat larger portion that i did finish so good 350?, veggies 50 or so.lunch was the best meat i have had in awhile thanks to her mom :) I was very hungry and it filled me up :) nice people. super nice. 700.

5p snacks: put laundry in and going to have coffee so i can do a workout in a little bit. two milano cookies and a coffee that i accidentally made with warm, not cool water oops 150, and a stevia extra sweetened strawberry on bottom cottage cheese very nice 150.300.

light, late 9p dinner: -...fruit a large serving plum lg and strawberries 100, tofu in some sauce 100, yogurt ff with sprinkles 150, ice cream pistachio light 150/200

1950

Plans:

11:30ish - in AM, i will quickly cut up -  veggies - for a platter for jen & her nice mom who is maybe cooking us tacos/meat with for lunch. - i already have peppers, tomatoes, celery. I'm happy to bulk it with extra veggies there. otherwise, i do have trouble eating meals that are more meat/tortilla based. so the extra veggies i bring will be a ton and they can keep any leftovers, if there are any. :) some veggies don't even require slicing...i'm bringing peppers, cherry tomatoes, & celery (just what i had in fridge). 

11:45am-ish - Leave my apt - for a Visit & lunch - friend Jen recovering from broken leg at her home for lunch with her and her mom; first time seeing her in around 1 year now.  

search for beef soup slow cooker recipe and prepare it / cook it today when i get home from Jen! ( not necessarily stew concistency) to make to both freeze and have some meat this week....i have the meat but need to see what kind of spices are good for it....i have veggies too like a huge zucchini, leftover cabbage, and eggplant...

I am thinking to do laundry today/ - my laundry is done


5.8.22 Sunday 

first errand before exercise: bring some things to Jen for her mom and her as a thank you and to help them out a little bit: 2 strong not dull knives (seems they had like one knife?); few clementines, toner i haven't used that's been in my closet -  for Jen, few sample perfumes for Jen's daughter, a pretty much unused small saucepot for making coffee, same for a large pot for sauteeing/making meat etc, 2 sponges. 2 cans of bubbly seltzer, instant coffee (not the whole container, the last 1/3 or so of mine) for my friend Jen to use to try for making cold or hot coffee to see if they like it;

Weights in AM so i know they are done...

Respond to messages from friends on fb/instagram...especially Joyce. :-D...

Mother's Day - parents away in Chicago; call mom...at a conference that was prescheduled, work related for my dad although retired, still involved.

See if i have a card for mom...if not, pick one up later in day from dollar store - after the bike is tuned up

 Maybe Sunday: PM, while on bike...Call Christine - chat & then discuss planning of the trip for the overnight to Peach Festival - New Hope, PA. discuss pros and cons of what day we go (friday or saturday to drive there?) and hotel options googling...would be good for us to do.

also talk about asking my SUPER for a raise, instead of the owner of company. old boss that i still work with told me to do it....maybe i will. he suggested asking for a very different amount than i make now...he suggested asking for just over 15k more than i make...i need to talk to Christine and also my parents about it....he said i am worth more than i am making. i could use the money, duh...the money could help me for little things and bigger things (like traveling, bike tune up that is $50 just for a bicylce i haven't ridden in 2 years,car insurance bills...those things, and to save it...). basically, making more would mean i could save more, in the end.

I am a little bit behind on walking steps this morning too. Spent too much time on my bike. It is raining quite a bit here, so I'm not sure if I will be able to go for a lunchtime walk. If I do not, I will drive to Walmart to walk through the store. However, if I do that, I know I will walk out with another plant.

horn_of_plenty on 05/07/2022:
plants are healthy for indoors to add oxygen :)

we have rain all day....

i wonder what weather my parents will get in chicago. my dad is there until next Saturday. my mom comes home earlier, tuesday.

Jacky82020 on 05/05/2022:
I will have to find out where New Hope is. Been in PA for years but left my heart in San Francisco and don’t know the area well. Sounds like a fun festival!

horn_of_plenty on 05/05/2022:
New Hope is nice to visit any warmer weather time of year...i'd have gone without it being the festival it's that great a place -but my friend is interested in the festival...so, we're going then, which is fine with me as long as we go to New Hope.


Donkey on 05/05/2022:
TOM is always a game-changer for me. I would encourage rest if you need it - or maybe even if you're not aware that you need it. :-)

horn_of_plenty on 05/05/2022:
i think it's why i chose, unknowingly, to get to bed early last night :) felt like i needed it :)

it's the great brand i like - Veggies Made Great (i think that's the name, tastes so good, you micro in its little package.)

You can have our rain. Today here it is cool, but clear and sunny. The sun is much welcomed, and I hope to have sufficient time to walk at lunch today. Yesterday, due to workload, other people's lunches, and rain, I did not get out for my walk until 2pm!!!

7/4/22 - July 4th is a Monday so it will be a nice, long weekend with today a Holiday!

Progress as of today: 7 lbs lost so far, only -2 lbs to go!

Donkey on 05/03/2022:
Kind of building off of a comment you made on someone's (Inner Peace's?) diary yesterday: How do you personally stop yourself from indulging in more portions, after you've had your smaller portion?

So for example, after you've had that one chocolate chip cookie, how do you stop yourself from having 5 more? (Just using cookies as an example. It could be any indulgent food.)

horn_of_plenty on 05/03/2022:
i may have 2 servings of chips or 2 servings of cookies (if they are more low cal; or if i have "room in my calorie allotment...)...but after i have had my "portioned fill of something and cannot go on," i follow it with liquid(s) to keep me going until the urge to eat/drink/consume/keep my mouth busy/hands busy/stomach busy...is satisfied:

last night was kombucha (not a great option for everytime -but a great, satisfying low cal (30 cal per cup of a nice flavor) as it can have effects, but i just had a serving and everything was nice.)

most often its flavored seltzer and i add stevia sweetener in.

best option is hot herbal tea, but when i'm too lazy to make it, it is the previous option.

at a party, diet sodas are my option / coffee with a dessert..

to reiterate, i use liquids as a backup after the eating part. that's why my soups have been so helpful these days at lunch. filled with veggies but also a lot of liquid, at least 1 cup liquid)

i do sometimes slip up to 2.5 servings lately of nachos, but i'm moving away from going over 2 servings; get better ...and the liquids save me.

at work, i do it with WATER mostly, sometimes a second coffee or decaf second coffee, and GUM.

horn_of_plenty on 05/03/2022:
i only use gum at work.

horn_of_plenty on 05/03/2022:
oh, i find it easier to stop earlier in the day and at work, as well.

and very easy to stop lately in the morning at work bc i'm used to eating "junky food" now in the AM and i'm satisfied with a little bit, plus my banana and some pb.

horn_of_plenty on 05/03/2022:
oh and morning coffee. all that fills me up.


Jacky82020 on 05/03/2022:
Happy 4th of July! I actually dislike this day as the locals shoot off fireworks that spook the dogs. Fireworks were banned in California due to wild fire risks. We liked this policy!

horn_of_plenty on 05/03/2022:
it's crazy it's only 2 months away..and it's on my entry as you noticed haha.

i don't love late fireworks...here in Queens, NY where i live, they tend to end quite early....and i do not get woken up all night....i think it was more of them when i lived on Long Island.

i guess more rules in a big city....kinda like you had in cali.


bearcountrygg on 05/03/2022:
Your Dad must have really loved his job to still attend conventions after retirement.......I'm sure it will make a nice trip for them though.

horn_of_plenty on 05/03/2022:
yes, he was one of the top guys in the union, still involved now. and yes, he must have enjoyed it a bit to go to the convention - others will go with him, the rest are prob still working, not retired. i was surprised he was going, too.


happy-1 on 05/03/2022:
Bird watching sounds fun!

horn_of_plenty on 05/03/2022:
it would be good to attend it...i have my choice of days...

TRP account - figuring out a transfer in progress...note to myself to keep up on it from paperwork submitted end of March.


two admins chitty chatty, prob not about me. prob about the girl who is supposed to join us and didn't today. i think that girl is trying not to have to come here to work at this trailer! fine by me if she never does; but not sure and guessing she'll eventually be here... whatever..

young coworker had wet soaked feet from commute, she borrowed my slippers again; instead of getting her own of course. no problem tho. doesn't bother me.

then she said when i do orders, that i shouldn't send them out and she should to the main office (i guess she wants it to look like she did the work)...i said fine, i'll send them to you and you send them out...(i really do not care....i hope to move out of this job and take that court test in the next year!)...struggling just a bit today, but i do have work to do...so i'm not without work...but it's low...let me get back to it...

What a great day -- and a nice walk afterwards!!!

I think it very wise not to get involved in the potential drama at work. Well done, you!!! Stay away from the chit-chat, and if you are invited, remember to keep your comments short and positive (or at least neutral).

horn_of_plenty on 05/03/2022:
