Weight: 114.6

Sunday: laundry finished already by 7am :-)

Breakfast: kombucha 40, light ice cream 360 = 400.

11am: turkey wrap with mustard 200.

1pm: banana 120, wrap 70, with cc 40, and chocolate whipped pb 150. total 380.

snacks 200

1600 total = very good.

2day avg = 1550.

gonna read for a bit....i don't even need to go food shopping for tomorrow. only things today were laundry around 5am-7am and gym around 5pm or maybe earlier :-) perfect.  let me tell you, i'd love ANOTHER weekend slow like this one. i really don't want to go to the beach next weekend either...

need to do oil change, but not in the mood. maybe friday after work or something.




Took a sleeping pill around the time i went to bed....i slept till 11:30am = the most awesome thing.

I planned a low key weekend on purpose. I want to mostly rest & recharge. Planning on probably a late gym session on Sunday afternoon / evening.

Today at 3pm-5pm getting a massage and facial at Massage Envy. I am a member and get billed $49 every month for a massage. I have a lot of pre-paids to use....happy to go & may do this again soon, actually.

I am happy to be alone on the couch, doing my thing, most of this weekend.  I do need an oil change though...so that may be one more thing to get done...maybe i'll do it after work Monday.

Brunch: leftover & tasty sauteed eggplant and also a pumpkin dish 250-300 most. Protein muffin 240, jello 40.  and some kombucha 20. 300. i'll say brunch was 600 total. good. 

Snack around 5:30pm: granola bar 100

6:30pm meal: strawberries 100, rest of the pumpkin 100, lots of tasty sauteed collard greens 200?, popcorn and chips 200, plum 50. total here: 650.

total so far today: 1350, good.

1500 total for saturday.

Progress as of today: 4.4 lbs lost so far, only 2.6 lbs to go!

puddles on 07/23/2016:

Horn_of_plenty on 07/24/2016:

Have a great TGIF.

innerpeace on 07/22/2016:
i hope it's work related! You know you can leave there and not think about it for a few days! Do your thing!

Horn_of_plenty on 07/23/2016:
yes, it also had to do with hormones & lack of sleep....feeling still tired but much better after lots of sleep.

Donkey on 07/22/2016:
TGIF indeed! I'm sorry that you are angry (((hugs)))

Horn_of_plenty on 07/23/2016:
Thank you very much :-) I do feel a bit better now & did sorta make up with the guy.

Work: Wrap with extra cream cheese and some salami 300, decaf coffee and another little bit of a flavored caffeine drink 50. 

small protein bar 150

1pm Lunch: turkey wrap 200 most with mustard, chips 150, salad 150 most. total 500 most. intestines still doing flips.

before gym: caffeine more, fruit 50, bar 150 most 200.

after gym: indulged. subway sandwich and light ice cream back at home. 600 tops.

1900, tops.

6-day average: 1775

(Responded to yesterday's post in the comments.)

I also wanted to comment about your pictures. I hope it's OK that I do that here. I noticed your comments that you were a little disappointed and looking for a leaner "cut" look. You can do that, but you would have to start doing some serious carb and calorie restriction / high protein plan. You know, the "one chicken breast, 1/2 sweet potato, 1 cup green beans" plan. I followed a few "cardio queens" who had converted over to the body builder side, and that's what they would do.

I'm not sure it's worth it. I'm also not sure it would be compatible with your long-term goals (e.g. police academy). If it helps any, I would kill for legs like yours. OK, maybe not kill, Ms. Police Officer, but you know what I mean ;-)

Horn_Of_Plenty on 07/21/2016:
I responded to all your comments :-)

I want to say thank you for your kindness always. For giving me advice always!

You are right, being that type of "leaner cut" and "dehydrated" build will NOT working for me and the NYPD goal of getting in. You are right, I'm NOT willing to adjust to any type of extreme diet. lol, you know me pretty well :-)

I know you are only kidding and wouldn't even kill an ant, well, maybe ! haha

Thanks so much J!!!!!!!

Sending you a Big, Thank You HUG!

Snacks 150 

dinner: sauteed bean sprouts 100, chips 150, lite ice cream 450 total 700.

Total today is good 1800.


Monday morning edit: It's 7:04am...totally overslept bc of sleeping pill but happy to get the extra sleep. Still can get to work on time. Actually overslept just about 1 full hour.

There's something bothering me that i'd like your take on......lately when i hang out with my "bestie" i realize how "old and set in her ways" she has become and it saddens me.  more and more I realize that to have new experiences, i'll have to hang out with others, not ask her for new things as she is typically against it all. so sad. she's off all summer and still when i asked her to go to a new beach with me - she turned my suggestion down! we are both adults, both our choices and wishes are fine....i just wonder how she can sit home all summer and do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!?  

she literally doesn't have any desires to do ANYTHING new in summer. i cannot understand how someone so young, 33, no kids or family is content going nowhere with her life.  and it doesn't help that i consider her my best friend. i wish she didn't hold me back so much in this way. I don't like doing the same thing over & over again. I am supposed to go to the beach with her this weekend, but i'm trying to get a massage and facial instead since i have a lot of unused prepaids and really just wanna do my own thing, ALL WEEKEND. she has plans anyways on Sunday, and i don't wanna rush to the beach Saturday, so i'm trying to get out of it for this weekend by making my own plans.  Hopefully there's something available for this weekend for me...

It just doens't make sense to me for someone to want to do NOTHING everyday?  That's why i cannot owe her the beach each weekend. just NO....not this weekend, even if i can't get a massage, maybe i'll go to another place instead or something....

...right now i've decided - i'm doing my own thing this weekend because i need to recharge. big time. 

because i have my own life goals. and she's not helping me reach them. i'm gonna relax. have a good gym session sunday. i need to feel good come August because I will get my own desire - my man here - and she doesn't even care to go with me to meet him....so....doing my own thing this weekend, for sure.

i'm get annoyed SO QUICKLY when she starts complaining to me how she has to go out of her way to get things she wants. Including last weekend NYC - she complained she had to come alone to the Broadway show and that trains don't come on time which is why she was so late!? well...take an earlier train girlfriend! plan ahead for once. !!!! if you know the subways are as slow and unreliable as shiat....then plan ahead of time like we all do. She says to me "oh, you were already in city from morning which is why it was easy for you to get to the show on time!"...i gotta laugh...does she actually think it matters? i was showing my friend around NYC...we had plans to meet....start taking responsibility and start planning. 

then she complains to me about having to get work on her brand new (under 1 yr) old car...its free with warranty...she just has to bring it into a place, call insurance, and see how the paperwork has to be. she complains that she doesn't know how it works and she'd rather just drive 2hrs to Pennsylvania to have it done over there...so she doesn't have to deal with the paperwork of doing it in a New York shop....guys!!!!

OMG GUYS...i just can't. !!!!!!!!!!

she's home all summer.

if she wants the dam* scratches taken out of her car....just go to the shop, submit the paperwork...and do it. what else is she doing anyways?

stop complaining that you "don't know how to do things...." or "don't know the system...." and actually just do it...learn how to go with the flow....

learn how to "help yourself" and stop making small problems or small challenges into major ones.

then...she's asking me about how to tell her therapist that she's gonna stop going to her....she's asking me how to "let the therapist down easy"...i'm like, just tell her "you're taking a break for now"...like who really cares anyways!? it's your life...it's your therapist's work....if you don't like your therapist, just stop going man!.

I just can't deal with little situations that seem so big in her mind!?

i need a friend to challenge me....and i need a man to challenge me....this is starting to be VERY important. 

and if my guy Paul doesn't start to wake up, i'm gonna stop trying to wake him up. and i'm going to start hooking up with someone else and leading my own life.

and this also will involve pulling away from my best friend....when she starts to whine and complain about little things in her life. 

that is life girl! 

make the best of it.

stop making little things into huge problems.

get a hobby.

do something you enjoy.

dam* it.  

I'm not angry. I did have a nice weekend at the beach with her. I just don't understand how she's so complacent and against every challenge no matter how small. It frustrates me.




Progress as of today: 4.4 lbs lost so far, only 2.6 lbs to go!

puddles on 07/18/2016:
Probably time for you take your own goals and life in hand and find yourself a new friend and definitely a new boyfriend doubt this Paul will ever change such a waste of your time. Negative people are unhealthy to keep around they drag you down. That is my 5cents of advise to you take it or leave it.... lol Have a great day J. Wishing you new beginnings.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 07/18/2016:
yeah, this whole weekend was a push for me to see how I have my own goals still and that i will get them...and not to let ANYONE take me down :-D yes...

You are right to forget him. Absolutely right.

And as for her, you are also right. I owe this girl nothing. A girl, my dar* bestie no less, that really sets no challenges...i don't need to set those challenges.

i was invited to get together with friends Friday after work...but i see myself going home and relaxing...or i would go...

yeah, i will take my life in my own hands this year. and do what i have to do for myself.

thank you for additionally reminding me of these things...and for pushing me to reach out to new people also.

thank you.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 07/18/2016:
best friend doesn't even offer to come with me to beach to see Paul / make plans.

I am happy with the weekend, but not content with settling ever...for lower standards or achieving as "little as possible."

lol...and my friend wants someone to challenge her?...she speaks of wanting to meet a guy who'll challenge her....

i laugh! what guy wants to challenge someone who refuses every challenge?

so confused.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 07/18/2016:
Puddles, i'm listening. I booked a massage and facial at Massage Envy on Saturday to fill my time with solitary stuff...and the rest of the day to be home relaxing. Low key weekend to recoop after being pretty busy since the 4th of July....and honestly, if i want to be home next weekend also, I will.

I want to feel 100% re-energized ASAP! lol

innerpeace on 07/18/2016:
I learned in the Stephen Covey - 7 Habits of Highly Effective People class to ACE - Accept, Change or Eliminate.

I see you can't accept how your friend is, I say she may be mildly depressed if she doesn't want to do anything! Set in her ways uninterested to do and/or learn anything new. That is very sad, and I doubt you will have much success in changing her this is evident. So you're only left with eliminate her from your life. You have your goals and you work very hard towards them and I wouldn't let her bring you down! You GO GIRL!

Horn_of_plenty on 07/19/2016:
I think you are right that she is mildly depressed.

I think I will just accept her as I've always done.

But in lesser quantities.

I guess i'm left with seeing her less then...ya know? I don't want to rid myself of her as I do enjoy doing things with her. Just not ALL the time.

I agree it's very sad. I have stopped trying to change her as my energy isn't that high where i need to work on someone else before myself & like you said - my goals.

Thanks for the reminder that i have a busy & challenging life of my own ahead of me...and that I will have to do what my life requires..and not be brought down by anyone negative influences around me.

Maybe I should get a book like this from the library.

Donkey on 07/19/2016:
I think it's easy to become addicted to complaining. Maybe that's the first step in getting old? Getting stuck in one's ways? Your friend might not even realize that she's stuck.

I'm not sure about eliminating, but one has to be careful not to let the toxicity of complaining become contagious. I think I want to read the book that innerpeace recommended...

Horn_Of_Plenty on 07/21/2016:
yeah, even i catch my own self complaining sometimes. she doesn't realize she's stuck.

we go to the beach, she doesn't even try to walk over these big rocks like i do and i see 50-60yr old women doing it too - instead, she's scared and walks around. she's not tough...which is fine, i just don't think she realizes...?

not that it really matters :) she's her own person, not me :-)

yes, like i recommended to you - i'm gonna to try to get myself thinking on the positive side first (rather than after...)

Weight: 114.6

2-day average: 2000......i can do better. lately eating too much and too many weeks of higher calories. i think i want to get back on track rest of this month - yes i will!!

remember the guy i like around here? he's driving me nutz because he REFUSES to let his guard down. I won't be getting together with him this month, for sure. We'll see about August when it comes.  I'll be concentrating on myself for the rest of this month since i'm still trying to get back on an even keel after partying for two weekends straight.


Photos at the bottom of this entry :-)

Banana 120, quest bar 190: 310

Peanut butter , popcorn 250 Peppers 100, popcorn 100, lollipop 50, pretzels 50 300 850...ices 200 plum 50 peppers 50 300 1150...lollipop 1200

bigger meal at diner: piece bacon 50?, avocado 100?, shrimp 150?, little salad dressing 50, some salad 50?. so total here is: 450 i'll estimate extra...and also had a plate of stewed zucchini 300? 750-800. 2 small cookies also.

total today: 2,100. good.

took a nice stroll on beach, short one.

ankle feeling pretty good.

took a sleeping pill at 8pm (late) but worth it. need to keep getting good sleep to start the week. whatever. have a long summer to feel good about. 

skin is really BAD. because of stress and picking at it. ah well.


Morning All!

Figured I should post some photos of my adventures last week. Lately, I am getting used to the lower weight sorta...trying to maintain...and it's generally working...but lately i just feel "skinny fat" like I've lost muscle and that i'm flabby all over in my stomach area always (never had abs except maybe as a kid and also as a teen just because i was so thin but not very defined as a teen, just very slim). anyways, my legs have no muscle, my arms don't show it as much, and my stomach is flabby. I feel like my body has gotten used to the lower weight. I want to try to still lose a few more, even if it's after summer when things die down a bit over here.  It's not like i'm "unhappy" with my weight.  I bought two pairs of size 2 shorts. They are on the tight side, but they fit. But when i see photos like what i post below, i am not happy with how "unfit" i look.  I need to start up cardio.  After the summer, that is.  Beach right now is enough punishment to my body since it's difficult for me to walk on sand.

So as much as I want to do cardio and figure it all out and get into the NYPD, I'll deal with this soft look in my body. And start doing more leg exercises at the gym. I'll make this work for me. I can do this.  I need to keep strengthening my legs and ankle before starting up cardio again...sometime after summer.


Here's some photos from last weekend:  

This photo is from Fire Island.  It was a nude beach, so when i put the top back on, i forgot to put a space in the middle....anyways, it's a candid shot and i was having a ton of fun with my friend from Toronto who came to visit for the weekend!...

Here's where i noticed my legs need major work and that i have no muscle in the lower half my body:

My Canadian friend and I at the beach (Fire Island, NY)

Me at the gym yesterday afternoon, feeling pretty slim but want abs definition....lately i'm very skinny fat....

Progress as of today: 4.4 lbs lost so far, only 2.6 lbs to go!

puddles on 07/17/2016:
Nice pictures. Yes so much flab... lol I would not dare put picture like that of me then you would know what flab really is.... lol We all have our own definition. Don't be so critical of your body you look great J.

Horn_of_plenty on 07/17/2016:
TY Puddy. I do feel great in the gym photo. :-D

I always love your pictures when you post them :-D

thanks for the compliments.

Home :-D

Debating taking a day off the gym again...like i did the weekend my friend stayed over last week....but i may go tomorrow morning to gym instead. I am physically and emotionally drained right now.

There is NO GOOD in constantly skipping the gym. That's why I didn't skip. I had planned on it once I knew i was going to the beach Sunday. Staying fit is a choice. It's not always easy, but it certainly is WORTH IT.

Morning: banana, sf jello, and a chocolate protein muffin 380

snack Chips, 2 servings, 270

lunch: wrap with lox and cream cheese: 300

before gym: 4pm-5pm: more caffeine, 2 plums 100, tomato & onion salad 100, kale salad 100. 300., wrap with mustard and smoked Boars Head turkey breast around 150 only., water.

bar 140, ice cream 240...380...more ice cream...around 180

total: 1730. 1900...gave into temptation, had ice cream until i couldn't have anymore because i was full of it. (very light ice cream, 60 cal per half cup....so i had ALMOST 2 pints. finally tired. finished my book. texted my guy too much. going to bed REALLY soon.


and about to KILL my neighbors who are blasting oldies music....i'd rather them have sex (if that's what they're doing!?) without it. stupid neighbors. cannot stand them, actually. i feel they forget they have neighbors and when they slam the door every time they close it, it frustrates me.


i'll be heading off to the gym soon after i bring up my laundry and finish my book probably. i'm glad i got everything done today (food shopping, laundry, and will do gym, too). I'll not be buying a dress for summer as it's truly i waste of my hard-earned money right now :-) 


gym will probably be a fast one as I'm glad to get it in, but don't plan to be there long...i'll prob do minimal sets of everything (no more than 3) in an attempt to get out of the gym fast.


I wish it were a 3-day weekend but the good thing is that i'm prepared already for Monday.

Progress as of today: 4.4 lbs lost so far, only 2.6 lbs to go!

Def not trying to complain but just wanna say that I was really smart to make this a 3-day week. I didn't go to bed early enough last night & I am not feeling on top of the world today at all. Hints of sadness and emotions that usually wouldn't come up i feel like they are resurfacing like they tend to when i get overtired. 

I'm just really happy it's a Friday & don't plan on shopping tonight, that's for sure. Maybe tomorrow. Gonna try to go home, eat a LIGHT dinner since i overdid lunch, and get myself to bed early. Only thing i want to also do it read. Maybe even stay off the computer and electronic devices.

Just feeling like I need some more alone time :-) which i will get tonight and tomorrow. I may even skip doing most laundry this weekend....or do it sunday after beach. trying to limit money spending and doing any extra activities this weekend besides minimal things because my body is still resting up still from the previous 2 weekends.


Morning! Nice, short week over here! :-) Well Planned!!!!

6am at home: kombucha 80 (4 light servings, worked finally!)

8:30am-9am at work: banana 120, coffee 50, wrap with cream cheese and lox 300:

11:30am snack: small atkins bar 130

Lunch: to be healthy...lately popcorn does the carb trick for me....gives me enough carbs & i feel full... don't really need to even go light on lunch... had a coworker's leftovers 700-800. more than expected.

1500...and not in a mood to do errands after work. if i go to buy anyting from OLD NAVY it'll be tomorrow!

1600 after fruit.

Dinner: strawberries 50, frozen yogurt 120, 240: 410

Total today 2010.

1925 7day avg. I want next week to be better..


Maybe tonight after work i'll stop by OLD NAVY here in Jamaica.no i'll have to go by me in Flushing....i'm not walking around Jamaica again after work nah....YES....that would be good, then i don't need to do this errand on the weekend really and just get it done after work. I  need a light short summer dress...at least one....and they are on sale.  Probably not buying the sundress today....no.

gonna try to get my weekly calorie average to be in the 1800's...shouldn't be majorly hard...and i have a TON of light ice cream and jello at home so it should be okay to eat a lower calorie dinner tonight & maybe bed early.

Saturday i'll be doing laundry, errands like food shopping, and MAYBE buy a dress on sale at old navy...oh....and gym in evening...so it's a full day but a good day & i can sleep a lot - def going to bed early tonight.  also gonna finish my book this weekend. i really loved the Harry Clifton Chronicles. Read all except #7 because it's not in the Queens Public Library system yet! All 6 books were fantastic!

Sunday is Beach day....should be great!

Then a full week next week.


I am totally in love with my ex-physical therapist. we've been texting 3 years or more most days of the week if not all, lost track. He knows i had a guy from Canada over. I texted him (Paul - my old PT GUY here) even while Canadian guy was at my place.

I want to maybe someday marry Paul...although he has no clue that i love him or that i may marry him yet! jajajaja.....it's still a LONG time coming...i'm working my magic....slowly....on him. and it's WORKING!!!! so happy. lately he's more comfortable in texting with me....and he's much calmer overall.  I don't want a typical marriage. I want to always have my own apartment. I just want to "belong" to somebody...ya know? i want to always walk around knowing that there's a guy who loves me to the moon and back....i hope it works for us in the end!!!!. :)   like i said, it's a work in progress with me and him.

I probably wont even hang out with him until August as I'm not this weekend (just trying to relax, still quite tired out from the past 2 weeks!)....and i don't think the rest of July (but this can change, we'll see overall how i'm feeling!)

Progress as of today: 4.4 lbs lost so far, only 2.6 lbs to go!

Definitely would not be a typical marriage for sure. Obviously no kids in the picture. Where would they live if there is.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 07/15/2016:
yes, prob no kids...

Start with the friendship and go from there- who knows- maybe it will work out for you.
