Donkey on 04/20/2022:
How did the veggie soup you made turn out?

I hope to take a morning walk before work today - and not on the treadmill as I have been doing lately in the mornings.

I did leg weights last night, thinking of you :-) Of course, by the time I got to them, you were probably finished with yours, with the time difference and all. But that's OK!

horn_of_plenty on 04/20/2022:
The soup tastes good for the minimal effort that i put into making it. I think i should do this more often as a way to cook by just chopping but not needing to stand at the stove. I really like how Legs said she and her bf put all kinds of things in the slow cooker, just stirring every half hour. I only stirred like 2x, sorta at the beginning of the 8 hours on low it cooked for. everything was cooked well. the bok choy ended up tasting very good this way, cooked well, sweetened it. also, i think it's good i added in 1tbsp-2tbsps of olive oil so that it wasn't too light-tasting. it's good, i'll finish it or freeze anything i don't finish this week.

yes, i'm so happy to get at least 15min of walking in this AM.

totally forgot we have a time difference. yes, i was done with everything around 8:45p. i want to work on getting done even earlier...stretching out workouts isn't relaxing to do; best to get done earlier, then relax after earlier....

have a nice day. it's a good week over here.


Maria7 on 04/20/2022:
Your 15 minute walk sounds wonderful! Hope you have a good day.

horn_of_plenty on 04/21/2022:
so good to get some blood flowing.


coffee&calories on 04/20/2022:
I need a slice of your attitude! :) I was catching up on entries and see over the holiday weekend you didn't even overeat! How do you manage to stay on track 100% of the time? How do you not give in to the "lower brain" that might tell you it's okay because it's a holiday, you can compensate tomorrow etc? Do you never experience the urge to binge anymore? I tell you, one day you must write a self help book haha.

horn_of_plenty on 04/21/2022:
will try to write you back by Friday sometime,.....such a distracted week over here!...even put off responding to 3 friends on messenger in facebook, i'm so behind this week..


Jacky82020 on 04/20/2022:
Nice you had that brisk walk!

horn_of_plenty on 04/21/2022:
a brisk walk is always what the dr orders..


bearcountrygg on 04/20/2022:
That is a great way to acquire books to read....Then when you are done with them you could take them back to the laundry room for someone else to read......nice way to recycle things.

horn_of_plenty on 04/20/2022:
this is a good idea.....to clear up my bookshelf....


Maria7 on 04/20/2022:
Hubby and I took a nice walk today, too!

horn_of_plenty on 04/21/2022:
that is great, it's perfect weather for it.


happy-1 on 04/21/2022:
What is the dried jackfruit good for?

horn_of_plenty on 04/21/2022:
mostly bc it's dried fruit that is still a little sweet, this brand no sugar added. takes awhile to chew, keeps my mouth busy for a long time.

it's just good to snack on....

horn_of_plenty on 04/21/2022:
also, when i need sugar after exercise or after not eating for awhile, if i have a bag of these from my amazon orders, it's nice to start a meal with the sugar, but it also has fiber so the dried jackfruit is better than starting with crackers or gummies or candy...just another "better" option..

I'm having a tired feeling week; but i think it's my fault as i keep going to bed around 10 or a little after and it's not enough sleep; i also wake up in the middle of night to look at my phone..

waking up early to take care of my hair....i want to wash it with the blue tinted shampoo i bought; and also add some of the glaze sample the hairdresser gave me; i will not blow dry my hair tho...just washing and trying to calm it a bit....my hair is actually really dry, but my scalp is a little irriated in certain spots so i'm looking forward to washing my scalp tomorrow in the AM...waiting for tomorrow bc my hair, like i said, and scalp even, isn't very oily - at all....

Nice that you got in a walk before work, even with the drizzle.

Today is lower body weights for me. I did a couple this morning, but I will try to do something tonight, after Zoom Grief Group, if I can.

horn_of_plenty on 04/19/2022:
yes, winds were low too, so no umbrella issues of getting tossed and turned around, easy to hold it while walking....

i'm glad to hear you are staying with your workouts; and the Zoom grief group xo.

i was suppsoed to have a meeting for my religious club i'm in associated with the union but luckily it was canceled due to it being a holiday. THANK GOSH. i wasn't going to go. too much and i had forgotten about it, until i saw a phone reminder last nite...so glad it's off :)


Jacky82020 on 04/19/2022:
It was so windy and snowy here yesterday!

horn_of_plenty on 04/19/2022:
i have heard about the snow all around (well, actually just up in northern areas! seems a lot of folks have gotten some lately!) yuck!

horn_of_plenty on 04/19/2022:
it is chilly here this week tho, around 40's-50F


bearcountrygg on 04/19/2022:
All of your food sounds good today!

horn_of_plenty on 04/19/2022:
Thanks, it feels pretty healthy and reasonable :) xoxo...good to get more into less sugar too; plan to have some savory breakfasts when the pumpkin pie is done, maybe even before i finish the pie....i have some lox, cream cheese to make wraps

You have a good looking menu planned for today!!!

horn_of_plenty on 04/18/2022:
thank you...i do need more health right now...to keep my skin clear and energy up! :)


Donkey on 04/18/2022:
Are the meatballs what was in the picture you sent me, with the red sauce? <:-)

I'm glad you got to work early, even with a late start - yay!!!

horn_of_plenty on 04/18/2022:
yes yes! the whole tray of small meatballs. like 1/2" diameter. smaller than an inch. fun. in a cranberry sauce made from canned cranberries, but not too sweet. like a sweet/sour. very nice. :)

tomorrow, i can try to get here earlier by waking up on time... :) and not having to search for my food/lunch...and i can walk 20 min! :)

have a nice day to you too.


legcramps on 04/18/2022:
We make our meatballs in the slow cooker with sweet and sour sauce too, so good!

horn_of_plenty on 04/18/2022:
do you first do any sauteeing on stove top for flavor of anythign? sometimes they recommend sauteeing the onion, etc...

i will use slow cooker tonight for easy cooking.


Maria7 on 04/18/2022:
Your vegetable soup sounds wonderful! That is so nice you got in a good walk before work this morning!

horn_of_plenty on 04/18/2022:
yes, it is so good to get a little movement in before starting work :)


legcramps on 04/18/2022:
No, we literally throw it all in the slow cooker and just stir it every half hour or so. I suppose sauteeing it would bring out more flavour though!

horn_of_plenty on 04/18/2022:
Depending on the dish, it can help add flavor by sautéing some of the veg - but I also will not be doing that tonight !


happy-1 on 04/18/2022:

thanks, looking forward, although i left a little late, recharged by relaxing home before going there..lol...


Donkey on 04/17/2022:
I can't wait to hear about your Passover dinner. I bet it was delicious! And I'm glad that you'll have a day to recharge before going back to work on Monday.

It's so relaxing to have your hair done at a salon. I hope you had fun!

horn_of_plenty on 04/17/2022:
my mom made so much fun, i asked to take some leftovers home and now i have some really good eats for the start of this week!!!

a chicken soup homemade was one thing...

and she made a dish of cranberry sauce over meat balls....like a sweet and sour taste for meatballs, very nice...i think that's what you were looking at - must look back in that message to you...she made a lot of veggies too, was easy to stay on track.

dessert was one choc covered dried apricot, delish, and one jelly ring chocolate covered. small amount.

:)

i realize i forgot to buy the 6 and 0 candles for a bday, so will have to go out later..

bearcountrygg on 04/14/2022:
I looked your croissant up...and they are the same ones I used to buy when we lived downstate....They are good...I was always tempted to eat more than one......I see you can stick to just one...BRAVO!!!

horn_of_plenty on 04/14/2022:
at work it is easy to stick to one; and being they are single packaged and stay fresh for months...is awesome! :) at home, i'd want to microwave or warm it...but at work, it works perfectly.


Jacky82020 on 04/14/2022:
Series of STD vaccines? Does STD mean what it used to? Never heard of it. Been seriously monogamous for decades.

horn_of_plenty on 04/14/2022:
yes, it's the vax series that came out when you were in your 30's (bc i was in my 20's around 26 at the time) it's for HPV related viruses. you can get the vax now up to age 45 even if you have or had a related STD/STI. they are very common, some cause cancer. I figure let me get the vax as it helps to prevent cancer or even is good to have in general whether or not a person was diagnosed in the past wtih something.

the world is a crazy place. too many thigns to catch by just having fun. it's hardly worth it anymore!


Jacky82020 on 04/14/2022:
Yep, a cause of cervical cancer

horn_of_plenty on 04/14/2022:
right; some of the types. some not. there's like 150 HPV types. shot only blocks a few.


Jacky82020 on 04/14/2022:
Kinda funny how thing they people slow down at 45. Statistically probably so. Common theme on my medical dramas is all the old folks at the home getting various std’s. These places have a resident stud. LOL

horn_of_plenty on 04/14/2022:
yes. but std's are extremely common; so much so that you are more prone to get it than not; or rather more prone to even carry it and not show symptoms.


happy-1 on 04/14/2022:
Keep on truckin’!

horn_of_plenty on 04/14/2022:
THANK YOU, HAPPY!!!!!!!!!


Jacky82020 on 04/14/2022:
Not common in faithful couples!

horn_of_plenty on 04/14/2022:
nope...it says it's very common...depends how many partners before they met each other...read up, you'll be amazed..

  • Fall 2023? - if flights still free for me; thinking to do another trip including J and friend Joyce if they are both free, somewhere in Europe...
  • OR WINTER 2024 - AUSTRALIA? (have friend there who has invited me several times to visit! - if flight is free, then i will make it a point to possibly go, depending on anything happening with NYS courts)
  • Thinking to get a small dog in Sept/Oct.

 Compliance items: RESTARTED -  (Revised Vax/Boost Spreadsheets with complete dates - companywide)...doing better, continue making phone calls, make follow up phone calls only after first round of calls is done.

i think the exec will be gone by 2 weeks from now. 4.20.22?...we will see if this changes. prob not overall; but just maybe by a week....


4.13.22 Wed -

walked just about 10 min in AM once parked at work! was so nice. not even very cold. :-D

Breakfast: smallish choc small bit filled croissant with a coffee 250, pb 100. 350.

snacks: almonds 100, cookie 100pb? 50

600...

Lunch: healthy leftovers: salad with a little dressing 50, wrap toasted with an egg 200 and slice or two of cheese 120. 400 lunch. clementine 50

Snacks: maybe banana later?

Dinner: don't need takeout; have one last meatball and sauce from Christine she cooked and gave me; will eat with leftover veggies at home; clementines...thai takeout is what i decided on. shrimp 150, sauce 150?, veggies including lots of eggplant 150, blueberries 150. 600 tops. no rice or anything. relaxing now and watching a couple tv shows.

1650-1700.

i think i will walk 10 min after work or so just to get blood flowing before driving home; but want to sit on my exercise bike tonight. i have to change my mindset to realizing that the bike is good for alternating muscles....i didn't do bike but i walked/stretched more than 10 minutes as well as went to supermarket and walked around a little bit there.

I Was up a little late doing my workout last night. did everyting except toe rasies bc my calves are sore and this wouldn't help. did all squats with no issues and upper body went well. 

I'm a little weaker with my upper body - and using slightly lower weights (5lbs less) compared to what i usually do (i have a few sizes of weights)...and with constant effort to maintain and keep my workouts at 3x per week, I feel i can get back up to the heavier weights. 

However, at almost 40 yrs old, i have always said to myself that if i need to ever stop lifting "heavy" and move onto a different way of lifting later in life; whatever age that might be, I will feel it and recognize it and adjust....i don't think i'm there just yet but i do have to go back to 3x per week workouts more steadily without skips right now :)

Donkey on 04/13/2022:
A short walk after work might be a good idea, after sitting all day, to move around before sitting down to a long commute. You can still do the bike for a little bit (or a lot) when you get home, because, as you pointed out, it works muscles differently. The bike has done wonders for my hips and lower back.

I've read FB posts from older men who are bulked up, but due to age and injury (includes arthritis), have switched to lighter weights, more reps to get their gains. It's comforting to me to know that this is an option for me, too.

I have found that for me, it's good to push my limits and lift heavier, but then I fall back to the lighter weights (more reps) for a break. Then, after a few weeks, I go back to heavier.

horn_of_plenty on 04/13/2022:
re your last paragraph, that is my plan...i'm in the lighter weights stage right now and planning to get back to heavier once i can increase the number of reps at the lighter weight level...not there yet!


Jacky82020 on 04/13/2022:
Are you feeling following the Subway shooting case? I hope they catch him very soon. Unusual mass shooter: black & 62. He’s the kind that may off himself as the cops close in. Just as well IMO

horn_of_plenty on 04/13/2022:
so crazy...yeah, i hope they get him! nutso!

horn_of_plenty on 04/13/2022:
i wonder if it was him alone or someone else invovled!


Jacky82020 on 04/13/2022:
No, they are fairly certain this psycho acted alone. He’s a short heavy guy. My guess is they get him dead or alive very soon.

happy-1 on 04/13/2022:
What kind of dog?

horn_of_plenty on 04/13/2022:
i am not sure, but the appropriate size for an apt, not a huge collie/large doodle or anything like that!


bearcountrygg on 04/13/2022:
It's been a few years since I had a filled croissant...but they are sure tasty!

horn_of_plenty on 04/13/2022:
smaller type, but not tiny, packaged, quite nice. the filling is more like a spoon of a chocolate spread. pretty nice. can be warmed but i ate it room temp.


happy-1 on 04/13/2022:
Omg, croissants

horn_of_plenty on 04/13/2022:
even packaged and it's good!

Donkey on 04/12/2022:
Fiber filled ice cream? What brand is that? That sounds like the best of both worlds to me :-)

It's hard when you don't get sleep, but you're most likely right that you'll sleep well tonight.

horn_of_plenty on 04/12/2022:
very tasty, relatively new brand called Nick's...cannot eat a lot without my stomach relieving itself...which is good and bad ;) ....but not always good to poop like that...so will wait awhile before trying the other pint...and not buy this brand again - bc it is not healthy if it's going to mess with my body. i hadn't realized.


bearcountrygg on 04/12/2022:
UGH...Fiber...can be a friend or foe.....

horn_of_plenty on 04/12/2022:
lol was the bad fiber, but of course i felt really thin this morning LOL.


legcramps on 04/12/2022:
That sounds like a pretty delicious breakfast this morning! I was just thinking about national donut day yesterday, which is in about two months. I don't know why it is so important to me, LOL.

Enjoy your full body workout today! I will be doing a lower body workout!

horn_of_plenty on 04/12/2022:
i hope to have a donut on donut day :) i hope you do, too! :)

i may skip lower body as legs are really sore in the back of my calves...i have been flexing and pointing my toes up and down to fix it...


Maria7 on 04/12/2022:
Hope you get caught up on your rest. Have a blessed day.

horn_of_plenty on 04/12/2022:
thank you Maria :) you too!


Jacky82020 on 04/12/2022:
Enterman’s ! They had a surplus store in San Diego. Oh Yummers! Everything was marked way down, some super low. My kinda store!

horn_of_plenty on 04/12/2022:
oh, so much better when on sale! my kinda store, too! i think there's one around 45 min from me, maybe less...too far to go just to get cookies tho. that is cool.


Donkey on 04/12/2022:
Don't think I overlooked that line about getting a dog. ;-)

horn_of_plenty on 04/13/2022:
right!? i was talking to my "nurse therapist" that i talk to every month or so...she agreed and supported it for the future, but def not for now due to many unknowns about job stability / commute right now! it will be exciting later. :-DDD
