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 04/30/2022:
It sounds like you have a nice, cozy day planned for yourself today. We're having really good weather for a cozy day -- which means gray & wet (but not too cold, thankfully).

When does your new office gal start? Our new replacement starts on Monday. If he is as loud as he was at his interview, our office is about to get a lot chattier for sure.

I'm not sure what weights I'll do today, if any. What do you have planned for yourself?

horn_of_plenty on 04/30/2022:
yeah, i eeally enjoy being home...

surprisingly, everything is not known about new office gal. she was transferred from main office and sounds like she doesn't like this new commute. she sounds nice, just that she also didn't want to join us in the trailer (i can tell, she didn't actually say that.)...it's like nobody needed her after the job she was on ended....and now she's stuck in a similar predicament to me....that's again why i want out of this field...

i think she'll start sometime next week unless there's a big change of plans...

for my weights, it'll be a whole body strength workout :) there's a picture we took and my shoulders look THE STRONGEST out of all 11 people in the photo. i may post it here....it shows proof of my dedication; now i know why the executive thought i was so fit lol....he stands next to me in the photo, will post it later.


bearcountrygg on 04/30/2022:
Cooking chicken with the skin on makes it much jucier.....and keeps it from drying out...adds flavor too......You can always discard the skin before you eat it if you like.

horn_of_plenty on 04/30/2022:
oops, bought skinless, but it's thighs so will be a little less dress compared to the breats. i went with what was cheapest / smallest portions at supermarket.


bearcountrygg on 04/30/2022:
They will be just fine......I was going by what your post above said....I usually buy them skinless as well and just make sure I keep them covered in something to keep them from drying out.

horn_of_plenty on 04/30/2022:
thanks Bear, they are at the bottom of the slow cooker soup

Donkey on 04/29/2022:
I did upper body weights last night, thinking of you. Your posting about your weight-training sessions really does help motivate me to keep weight training as a part of my routine.

horn_of_plenty on 04/30/2022:
if that's the case, i'm so glad i can motivate others like you!!! xo

horn_of_plenty on 04/30/2022:
plus, the only way for real progress or even maintenance is to keep at it..


happy-1 on 04/29/2022:
I love how you power through relentlessly in pursuit of your goals, but also give yourself the grace to rest.

horn_of_plenty on 04/30/2022:
thank you for your compliment, that is nice to hear someone thinks so!

it is true, i don't like to run around 24/7...so i need those days and times for rest :)

horn_of_plenty on 04/30/2022:
* someone here (not hear!)


bearcountrygg on 04/29/2022:
I've been enjoying wraps lately too.......so much lighter it seems than bread.

horn_of_plenty on 04/30/2022:
i also find them more versatile, easy to put anything in them (like cream cheese)...i would never bring cream cheese on bread to work...i guess wraps are more flexible for me too!

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

Donkey on 04/28/2022:
I'm sorry for your loss and wish you peace & serenity in handling the new changes. I think that would have been difficult for me to handle - someone leaving and all that change. An office is nice, but not having a window gets old real fast. I wish I had a window, and I think I'd trade warmth and privacy for a window.

Anyway, I totally get what you mean about another admin. assist. Is she needed? Are you not getting a new executive?

horn_of_plenty on 04/28/2022:
.....it will be interested to see one man now handle 3 women and be able to give assignments and delegate to three....

...it's going to be interesting...

we really need more project managers i think, not her....she was out a lot, i am not sure she's too reliable...she's been pushed around the offices, kinda like i was as well as the woman i took over for, there was room for us...i don't know how much room there will continue to be....maybe she's better than i think, i don't know yet she's not here....

she's 5 yrs younger than me...around 34/35 ...not happy about another...but that's the working world....always changing unless you work for government/schools

horn_of_plenty on 04/28/2022:
she was in this company longer than me but i doubt by very much...a job she was on ended, then she kept getting swapped around....like i was after i came to the location i'm at now...this is why working on a particular job stinks...when it ends, you need to have something lined up - either another job to work on or another company to go to! sucks!

horn_of_plenty on 04/28/2022:
thank you for the wishes. xo


Donkey on 04/28/2022:
PS See where you are at the end of the day, but sleep might be a priority over weight training tonight.

horn_of_plenty on 04/28/2022:
gotta do the weights; as i'm still working back to where i was.... :-D

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

bearcountrygg on 04/27/2022:
How close can you park your car at work?

horn_of_plenty on 04/27/2022:
VERY. either right next to the trailer or 2 min walk from trailer. each has enough parking :) usually i park right next to trailer, then walk in the direction of the park and back split evenly with how much time i have in AM when i'm early to work...i just walk back & forth and walk as far as possible and then turn around to come back in the direction of the trailer.

horn_of_plenty on 04/27/2022:
it is free parking inside the Dept of Environmental Protection plant :)...free parking on the road and under a tressel...a nice amount of spots for the people working here.


Donkey on 04/27/2022:
Aw that's too bad about the morning walk not working out. Now just think what would happen if you had a dog. You would definitely need to make time for that morning bathroom walk. I only say this because this is something that I remind myself of regularly. I'd love to get a rescue dog - especially now - but I already have too many butts to take care of, and a dog is a lot of work.

I'll write a little bit about my walking insight(s) in today's entry. I was going to write that I hope you get an after-work walk in today, but ya know, it's OK if you don't. Maybe your body is telling you that you need rest and sleep right now.

horn_of_plenty on 04/27/2022:
did a wee bit also of walking...still a lot of stuff going on after work (actually not a ton,just a little) but caused me to go to bed a little later than planned....

you are right, the dog is a no-go now....


Jacky82020 on 04/27/2022:
HoP, how do you use color highlights?

horn_of_plenty on 04/28/2022:
i write first, highlight it AFTER.


Jacky82020 on 04/27/2022:
I can’t get it to work. I select the line, it goes blue, then reverts when I hit the color selection

horn_of_plenty on 04/28/2022:
i only do it on my laptop, never the phone...

maybe you have to adjust your browser?


Jacky82020 on 04/28/2022:
Thanks, I figured it out kinda sorta on my iPad. That’s what I use all day, doing the stock trades and reading newspapers etc.

The trick was to select features even when highlights vanish. I thought it had to stay blue as it does elsewhere.

I absolutely have to do some banking on the laptop that doesn’t work on the iPad.

Jacky82020 on 04/26/2022:
I think we vote in May here and it will be done by mail for us. Everyone is eligible for mail now, used to be disabled & elderly only. Change was preCovid.

So no more .6 mile walks to the big church. Not good for my diet! The Church Ladies always had bake sales, all these delicious homemade cakes, pies & cookies at great prices.

The poll workers were all very nice older people.

horn_of_plenty on 04/27/2022:
yes, i know it's usually the older folks that work the polls bc they have no conflict with work and showing up to work the polls :)

you should walk outside anyways on election day ;)

that's cool with all the homemade goodies, never got that by me!


bearcountrygg on 04/26/2022:
Enjoy the lunch party.......That's a break from a lunch bag!

horn_of_plenty on 04/26/2022:
actually had a ton of veggies to choose from, but i couldn't go crazy bc it wasn't "all mine" to do it with....and i just stuck to small portions of everything...but there was a huge salad that almost nobody took from...i hope to eat it tomorrow....but then again, others may want it and so i'll bring my lunch and let them have it...that's prob best! :)

like i said, the selection was quite nice for deli food. it was the best actually i have had in terms of deli sandwiches and sides. well made! :) good taste!

4.25.22 Mon - well, i'm focused on getting back into walking before work, and do plan to walk Monday at least 10min before work, hopefully with this 24hr allergy medicine i am now taking that arrived saturday from Amazon, my reaction will be minimal to the tree pollen...yes, walked 15 min :-D

Breakfast: banana and coffee 150; wrap and cr ch 200...350.., extra decaf

9:30a Snacks: crispy fried south asian snack not too much 100; pb 100

10:15 small piece croissant with a tomato/olive flavor light spread on it. around 100

11:15 hungry day due to yesterday's high volume and calories, pb small spoon around 50

Lunch: sweet potato 100 w. skin; chicken 150, soup 50 and veg 100... maybe 1/4 avocado 100...500 (bc having a hungry day, need the fat)

Snacks: pretzel or two 50

5:15p bought kombucha bc craving it / hand to buy a card and did both at the same store 100

Dinner: between  phone calls and other things, it was around 8p when i ate, so decided on low volume foods as i've been bloated and sorta overdid it on the kombucha, but at least was able to use the bathroom somewhat - sorry for TMI...chips 350 of the spicy variety; fruit that i almost forgot to record - rest of the goldenberries 50; m&ms for dessert pb flavor 100. (real good, just opened it, it's the sharing size of them that comes in a large zip lock type of container...glad i stuck to a small amount. otherwise, why try to stay on track if i'm not going to...so i'm back on track :)

1850....

After work: walk around apt tonight; see if soil comes, go to neighbors to repot a plant most probably..went to do an errand to buy a card for the exec that's leaving instead of using my own stash at home; the one i bought is for a coworker leaving rather than a congrats, etc type of card, bought kombucha, went to bathroom at park so i could walk as i needed to pee so that park is extra convenient with the bathrooms that are open late!...another reason i like to go straight there after work...walked 1.5 mi, and talked to friend there and home...now relaxing an hour before bed :)
 
Allergies are now under control, with the Rx type of drug (though not by an rx) from Amazon brand equivalent to Zyrtec. Happy with the product. My nose / sinuses are still clearing out (from all the blowing/sneezing, my sinuses i think are a very little bit congested/inflamed, but doing wayyyy better and going away!)

4.26.22 Tues - Lou - Exec's Last day - Catered Lunch Party in our trailer, sad to see him go, he really bound us together and kept the work flow in order.

 

 

3pm - leave work half hour early: to get in Weights before meeting, no matter what.

I should leave work early to go to meeting and make work up later in the week...

i'm sure they'll discuss the contract. i'm going to try to leave early...otherwise, i'm not going to the meeting if i cannot also work out. i'm just regaining strength...

Donkey on 04/25/2022:
Enjoy the last real work day with your Exec. Having people leave has always been hard for me.

Tough call about the union meeting. Talking about the contract is important. Is there any way you can get a recap of the meeting? Can you attend via Zoom?

horn_of_plenty on 04/25/2022:
no zoom allowed but i told my main boss now about it and he said "why can't you go!?"..meaning he thought it unhread of that i'd say i am not going...so i will go, but i will also leave early tomorrow in order to get my exercise in before it....


bearcountrygg on 04/25/2022:
Having a co worker move on does make a difference in an office...especially when they are a key to running the place....Hopefully you will get a good replacement.

horn_of_plenty on 04/25/2022:
yeah, i am not sure of a replacement; they may not replace his exact position actually...but there's a bunch of other folks they have hired that do managerial positions in this company now...

yeah, i wish he'd stay!...but yeah right, he's moving onwards & upwards! (to partial owner of a company)


Jacky82020 on 04/25/2022:
Where’s that inexpensive store! I wanna shop there! Me like cheap.

horn_of_plenty on 04/25/2022:
it's called Lidl...from Europe...there's several on Long Island and i think in Queens. it's a GREAT store.

lots of goodies.

lots of packaged goodies. freezer, frozen, too.

lots of treats.

and the veggies/fruit are usually a good price - as are the eggs/dairy.

you just reminded me to get eggs there! :)

horn_of_plenty on 04/25/2022:
they even have a section of small gift items/home items/clothes.

it's one of a kind for people that like to browse, try new snacks, and get deals!


Maria7 on 04/25/2022:
Hubby and I have been getting more walking in, too!

horn_of_plenty on 04/25/2022:
i think it's great you both are walking more. it's very good to do! especially in nice weather! :) i joined you today - twice!


bearcountrygg on 04/25/2022:
You started something...LOL.....I remembered those filled croissants...and I ordered some...They arrived today.....They are almost a meal.

horn_of_plenty on 04/25/2022:
ha ha! the ones i ordered were smaller than the big croissants. says around 200 cals each? they are nice warmed (either in micro or toasted!) enjoy with your coffee???

3pm keto white chocolate 50 (trying to eat less / spread out these snacks... as my calories are already higher than usual...)...hot tea mix of herbs in it...3 sheets regulra seaweed (not the seasoned kind) 30....

4p light ice cream 150 really good. Nick's Ricky Fjord (got lots of goodies going on in my freezer). snacking...tried half a green banana i have had in my apt like all walk....literally it's a green banana...but it got softer and had half to try...pretty good...very unfocused workout as you can see....but i just am not into pushing it today...and later a freshly soft boiled egg 70, 5p rest of the green large banana (not hard, a soft, naturally called green banana) 50....VERY UNSTRUCTURED DAY, sorta overboard on relax mode...GLAD TO GO BACK TO WORK TOMORROW, BUT ALSO WOULD HAVE BEEN PRODUCTIVE IF TOMORROW WAS STILL THE WEEKEND!

6:45 EVENING SNACK / dinner: goldenberries fresh 50, lox 50, 1 egg/1egg white 100, on a tortilla 100, 300, i think some tortilla chips too...150

8:30 2 andes chocolate mints before bed soon...50. 

today is an example to ya'll of an "off eating" type of day...as well as an off day!  the good thing is that there was lots of health food today and it wasn't a total derailment. but the light ice cream caused a lot of gas and bloating so that's not good...anyways, hoping to walk a little before work tomorrow, to get my body moving. we'll see how the pollen affects me outside tomorrow. i've already taken the 24hr pill around 7p tonight.

2200.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

soft-boiling eggs...in progress...DONE.

**NEED & WANT TO DO TODAY**: I will reply to all messages i haven't read on instagram and facebook from my friends (approx 5-6!!!! friends waiting for my replies to messages they sent me since last weekend)...FINALLY, THANKFULLY DONE!

may pick up soil to repot a plant today from neighbor - most prob NOT...ordered on Amazon instead. DONE.

**This afternoon - give neighbor who is giving me a plant & pot - one chicken breast and soup :) **...left it at neighbor's door - told neighbor i haven't showered...feeling under the weather with allergies...DONE!

before After dinner - stationary bike & tv .....while responding to friend's messages...did it for 40 min on bike while mostly texting back friends / listening to tv...DONE!

may wash GP fleeces today eh, maybe tomorrow...will prob be content on doing a half-cleaning..and do it tonight, just to get it halfway done (clean the side with two pigs only - as it's easier to remove the fleece on their side bc on the other side i have to clip all around it bc the young pig loves to burough and make a mess)...we'll see, lazy day.....

Donkey on 04/24/2022:
Rather nice to have a relaxing day at home, so I'm glad you made that choice for yourself.

I find repotting plants to be very rewarding.

If you traveled to Guatemala using your Jet Blue points, then would you be flying separately from your friend? Well, who cares as long as you both get there. That sounds like such an incredible adventure.

horn_of_plenty on 04/24/2022:
actually, her flight has to come to either florida or new york from france ...her flight will not be non-stop...so, either way, she will prob join me on whatever flight i choose! :)...she will prob fly to NY ahead of time and stay with me until we both fly out to Guatemala! :) i will prob pick her up at the airport from her flight to me, before we later go to Guatemala 1-3 days later together.

horn_of_plenty on 04/24/2022:
either way, it's nice to know my flight to Guatemala will be heavily discounted! haha!


happy-1 on 04/24/2022:
OMG Guatemala post-COVID???

horn_of_plenty on 04/24/2022:
nice right!?


Jacky82020 on 04/24/2022:
Use them points and get more!!! I own stock in both AA and Jet Blue. Think Jet Blue is going to acquire Spirit. These stocks took a bit hit in 2020 but have recovered nicely.

horn_of_plenty on 04/24/2022:
glad to hear of their recovery....i'm thinking that if i get a free flight on AA, to see if there's a card i can get for future ...a card with rewards on spending a certain amount in the first 1-3mo so i can catch another free flight later....yeah!

horn_of_plenty on 04/24/2022:
(free flight from friend who is working for AA, so i get a free flight maybe thru her, i'd look into a card for future free flight again...)


Jacky82020 on 04/24/2022:
Fly high & free, HoP!

It was predictable the airlines would rebound. Vaccines, greater precautions etc etc

horn_of_plenty on 04/24/2022:
awwww, ty Jacky...now it all depends on which friends are free to travel with me / free to have a visit from me / free to meet up....i prefer traveling with a friend/to a friend :)...hopefully i can go back to functional and off the couch more often on weekends to prepare myself for more activity & traveling :)

 4.23.22 Sat 

edit re below increase: i looked at the new April 2022-April 2025 contract, 3 years, and it said a mandatory 2% increase for administrative workers in the union this year and in 2024 - or a minimum of $30 a week increase - and this is why that happened on my check, lol.  Happy was CORRECT in saying to check the contract.!!!

so, i noticed my weekly paycheck overall was around $35 more than i usually get, so i went online to see the actual pay stub as it's a pdf, not an actual paper check since it's direct deposit, and saw a small raise...will have to compare last check with this one to see the definite amount per hour that the raise is for:

Since nobody said anything to me about this; and i just received it and it is rather small per day, $0.86/hour, but overall for the year it surmounts to an extra $1,900 over the year for 7hrs regular, 1 hr OT daily at that rate, should i just say nothing? Since nobody said anything to me? should i wait to see next check, to see if it stays this way?? I STILL am making just slightly under 50K.

But, because my bills are low, especially Maintenance of the apt (monthly apt fee), living on this amount in the metro area of NYC is rather easy for me as a single person - easy to save even, as long as i don't need a new car, etc.


8:45a Breakfast: easy and what i had on hand - no fuss - banana with coffee and 2 elderberry gummies 150; Today small chocolate filled and warmed up chocolate croissant (it's GREAT warmed up as the chocolate melts!) 200, and i decided on a coconut siggi's yogurt as well 150: 500. worth it.

11a - healthier type of tahini bar...sesame seeds, a little sugar. a good bar. 100

12:20p Lunch: lox 50 & cr cheese on white tortilla wrap 200, butter popcorn: 150....400...and decided to open a canned bellini...made with sparkling water, grape wine, peach juice, and a couple other things. 150

Snacks: tahini bar 100

Dinner:going to have some bagged salad 50, with dressing 100- a lighter type of creamy caeser that i got yesterday bc it was slightly on sale (large bottle so not as cheap as if it was a smaller bottle of dressing) at the supermarket and i'm extremely eager to try, last piece of the tofu from the package 100, i cubed & heated the tofu fast in microwave and then added garlic & pepper on top, and will have "Paqui" zesty salsa verde nachos which is flavor/brand i never tried from a brand i had another flavor nachos and found them  very good; these are a little hot and good flavor as well :) 150...400; rest of the bellini drink blueberries 150

8:30-9a snacks -tastes chicken soup 150; 2 oreos 120...also an extra coffee 30

1950...

Will catch up with all your entries, was a busy week for me in addition to suffering from allergies on Thurs/Fri

...trying to get back to feeling myself by Monday morning!!!!!!!!!

Finishing the book that i have above, will delete soon & starting a new book today too :)..will llist it as soon as i start it....

Laundry - bed sheets, clothes, towels, DONE

4pm -  i put the chicken soup ingredients in the slow cooker on high for around 4hrs and get it cooking so it's ready by 8p tonight to put away...and maybe try it....in progress slow cooking!!! it includes 3 chicken breasts bc thats the smallest pack i found, eggplant, carrot, cabbage, orange pepper, small radishes that i mostly removed the outer purple skin, garlic, onion, thyme, parsley, black pepper, olive oil, large boillion cube...in progress....may give a couple soup servings/1 chicken breast away to the neighbors that are giving me a small plant&large pot for it to grow into....or give it to the woman to eat at work only...not sure i have enough for her whole family...which is wife/husband and 5yo.

bearcountrygg on 04/23/2022:
That soup sounds good.......I LOVE GARLIC!!!! Hope you feel better today.

horn_of_plenty on 04/23/2022:
Thank you....i think it will improve....as soon as i get the medicine delivery, i'll be taking one...it's prob for 24 hours...so we'll see how well it works within an hour after taking it....it comes with 90 pills, so prob enough for this year and next.

horn_of_plenty on 04/23/2022:
and, before tax, it was only $9 which is prob half the price of name brand zyrtec at the pharmacy. and it says to compare to Zyrtec. so i think this should be a good solution...


coffee&calories on 04/23/2022:
Yay it’s Saturday! Hope you have a great day. As far as your pay cheque being higher, could it be that you maxed out on your withholding tax? Like In Canada the government requires all employees to deduct CPP, EI and Income Tax. I believe once you hit the max, pay cheques look a lil higher :)

horn_of_plenty on 04/23/2022:
not such thing here / for me......i def didn't max out lol ..... but that sounds nice by you xoxo....it is an actual raise in hourly pay on the check.

horn_of_plenty on 04/23/2022:
above the check, the formula/amount for hourly pay is more.


happy-1 on 04/23/2022:
Check your contract. It might be an annual cost of living adjustment

horn_of_plenty on 04/23/2022:
...your point is valid....the contract will be signed very soon...i have to check it...i do not think it was signed yet. you have a point. the contract gets renewed every three years and it is just ending now....so perhaps they made the change a week early, tho i doubt...i will look at this...

horn_of_plenty on 04/23/2022:
i was looking at something online, which shows in a contract for my division a 2% increase in wages....so i guess my company doubled it, i think...

horn_of_plenty on 04/23/2022:
you were right to check the contract, it said this:

WAGES: 04/13/22 2% increase $30 minimum - $60 maximum (so when they increased my salary around $36 weekly,it is close to the minimum anyways)

Minimum starting salaries shall become: Clerical $603.75per week Administrative $690.00 per week Technical $747.50 per week Engineering $805.00 per week

horn_of_plenty on 04/23/2022:
and since my salary is based on also an hour of OT a day, i realize they just gave me the minimum $30 weekly increase and worked it out with the OT, so that's why my increase is like $36per week, the OT hours also were increased. yup, so my company went according to the new contract rules.

thanks happy.


happy-1 on 04/23/2022:
:)

horn_of_plenty on 04/23/2022:
xoxo


Donkey on 04/24/2022:
Glad you got your paycheck issue straightened out.

Your chicken soup sounds amazing!!!

Thurs evening edit - feeling sick from pollen allergies - skipping workout for bed - throat too itchy nose stuffed and I don't want to exercise 

4.22.22 Fri. - actually woke up early to do weights this AM, easier with the lighter traffic as well...since i skipped it last night. still blowing nose and sneezing lots. took my old 2018 allegra allergy medicine an extra this AM (as i took it last evening and it's 24hr).  i will have a new bottled delivered via amazon tomorrow. Just decided to do it with Amazon than go to a drug store as i was at work, suffering, and knew i prob had some old ones at home to use...which i do. I will throw these old ones out when the new bottle comes. but glad i have them for these two days....didn't have many allergy symptoms until i was hit hard yesterday...feel sick over it bc of the strength of the allergies....which is why i am doing weights now as well, i don't know how i'll feel tonight...also i must skip walking outside for today....since i first need to get the allergies under control with medicine, etc....

Early AM - banana, elderberry gummies 150...seltzer with stevia ;)

Breakfast: very boated bc had seltzer in AM also didn't quite use the bathroom fully during workout; ah well. tomorrow's the weekend! part of a banana and coffee 100, pump pie 200. 300.; may have another coffee later....yes, an extra regular coffee included calories negl.

Snacks: pb 50, small piece croissant snack 100

12:30p Lunch: very small piece of decadent chocolate fudge cake 6"dia tiny cake , very small piece 300 with a bit of icing/fudge; nice Amy's microwavable burrito of a great flavor 350; can't wait to go home & use the bathroom!

Snacks: few sucking candies while doing errands..50 (x4) needed sugar

Dinner: tried a sour orange lol very sour didn't finish 50, 2 packs of seaweed snacks (flavored and oiled a little bit) 100, cooked veggies in broth i made that is nice 100, wrap with cream cheese 200...total so far: 450, yogurt fat free choc on bottom, added keto sprinkles 150; and white chocolate lower sugar..like a controlled mini binge. actually lost my taste when i went for the yogurt and chcoolate. yup, you heard right, i couldn't taste any of the yogurt or chocolate. so now it's easy to stop at that! 100

2000.....

 Tonight - sit on bike & watch tv or call Christine :) - maybe.no exercise, bed early. 

took another allergy pill tonight, every 12hr instead of every 24hr as these are old and i'm experiencing bad symptoms. bought 4 big boxes of soft and lotioned tissues at supermarket....can't blow nose all day with harsh tissues.

still blowing my nose and sneezing literally ALL DAY at work, no good, i hope that when i take the new allergy medcine that isn't expired on Saturday - that it works and is way more potent than this old 2018 allegra is.

Donkey on 04/22/2022:
Good call not to exercise last night! I'm glad you woke up feeling a little better, to work out this morning. If your allergies are like what we have at the office, they tend to hit harder as the day progresses.

I definitely agree 100% that you must get the allergies under control as a priority over exercising. It's too bad about not walking outside, but I agree to hold off on that.

horn_of_plenty on 04/23/2022:
yes, i plan to stay inside today and just relax and get these allergies under control so i'm not blowing my nose every 5 min :)....

my mom said if i had pre-treated myself beforehand, before the tree pollen spiked, by taking allergy medicine like 2 weeks before, i'd have been ok now - so will try this next year. as soon as the trees bud, i'll start taking allergy pills...

glad i worked out in AM, bc battling allergies all day takes a lot out of me so i didn't go on the bike last night...but something to do today :)

have a nice day...gotta catch up on everyone's entries tonight.


happy-1 on 04/22/2022:
Hugs. Careful with antihistamines and sleep quality. Use a spray.

horn_of_plenty on 04/23/2022:
i have to use the antihistamines bc my allergies are really bad! :(

I too battle allergies. Sux! Take Clortabs. Generic from Walmart. Prefer it to the long acting ones.

horn_of_plenty on 04/23/2022:
why do you prefer the shorter time length tabs?


Jacky82020 on 04/23/2022:
I try to minimize the amount of OTC or RX meds I take & more often than not the short acting tabs works several hours, far beyond the 4-6 they claim

But I do have quite the collection of antihistamines here, including 24 hr caps

I have had worse allergies on the East Coast than I ever did in sunny California. Makes no sense to me!

horn_of_plenty on 04/24/2022:
i think the east coast does have worse conditions for allergies. i think i read the Pennsylvania is the "worst allergy state"

Driving must be a pleasure right now.......Does it get like this when school is out for the summer too?

horn_of_plenty on 04/21/2022:
YES, it does!!! it's a big difference in July and August :) just like this!...and even more sometimes bc families take vacations, so more people are off work sometimes during the summer :)


Donkey on 04/21/2022:
It's too bad you can't have an easier commute all the time, but then, probably wouldn't appreciate the lighter days/months like this.

I did not have time to walk this morning, but I will definitely walk at lunchtime. I may take a loop tonight, since the weather is getting much milder and should still be "warm" in the 60's into the early evening. I will think of you.


happy-1 on 04/21/2022:
Good job getting the 10 min am walk in. It maintains sleep hygeine.

horn_of_plenty on 04/22/2022:
i will try to get my allergies under control so i can continue with AM walks before work!
