KOMBUCHA 50

8:30am Breakfast: "good fats" coconut chocolate bar of which the texture is AMAZING, never ate anything like it! 210, coffee 50. 

10am snack:  small roll 120, 1/4 avo 80, turkey pepperoni 70 270-300

snack if needed before walk: cashews! 150 :) stayed away from chocolate so far!

lunch: veggies - got a ton 200 , some i might bring home to have with dinner, leftover 100, and crackers 150. 500 tops.

snack: pistashios / apple  chocolates 100, apple 100, 2 herbal teas

dinner: planning on it being healthier again, roll with egg and avo, veggies on side. ? or something similar...THE ROLLS I BOUGHT ON JUST REGULAR AND NOT FILLING..I SHOULD TRY WHOLE WHEAT OPTION NEXT! LIKE A MIX BETWEEN TOO HIGH FIBER AND TOO LOW FIBER!    healthy change of pace: extra blueberries 150, cooked eggplant smaller amount 50, cauliflower crust 250 very light one, yogurt 100 and a drink (low cal). 550, fine. i was full before finishing the cauliflower but ate it anyways, bc i really wanted that yogurt afterwards no matter what. weird, i know.

2000 cal, better...need more of these bc some of my pants are tight right now.!

5 day: 2211 (this is why i am gaining weight lol...time to think around 2000 per day, not 2200)

___________________________________________

will do LEG EXERCISES tonight, four of them total with 3 sets each and most of them are done one leg at a time so i'm glad i separate legs from arms now. 

Leg exercises typically do not bother my legs when they are recovering from overuse...they are great exercises and i look forward to my 2 types of squats, lunges and toe raises!

legs tired, so no extra walking besides at lunch...and it means i can get home, get started on the leg exercies and get to bed at a more reasonable hour. need rest tonight! :)

____________________________________________

friday after work is plans to see a famous comedian - Jerry Sienfeld! at the Beacon theatre which is around 100yrs old almost, in upper west side of NYC! never been there and of course this comedian is top of the class!

Progress as of today: -0.5 lbs lost so far, only 1.5 lbs to go!

legcramps on 03/13/2019:
Oh My Gosh! I would love to see Jerry Sienfeld! That will be so much fun :)

horn_of_plenty on 03/13/2019:
RIGHT!? and it's a short show i don't think more than 1.5hrs! so perfect on a friday eve, 7pm and going home after ! just wonderful way to start the weekend!

almost 400 cal just in chocolate today...hmmm....i am sensing somewhere to cut back!

and def that much in candy.

_________________________________________________

worked so slowly today at work, i didn't manage time well, worked slow and had to stay a half hour late to feel like i accomplished what i needed to....

def the chocolates and snacking have caused a couple pounds gain ...or maybe it's bloat also but i've gained...i'm still in binge mode but i sense an end...! it would be better if i am in Paris and not heavy to start...around all that .....food...bakery items...etc!

like donkey felt, i am feeling it now...gained a little since i returned from florida. it's been about 1.5 months back now. mostly eating high calorie the past few weeks.

________________________________________________

11am snack pistachios 150

lunch: from home leftovers from Sunday... - large fresh (not packaged) miso soup (tons of seaweed and tofu!) and chips to buy at lunch...600 TOTAL SO GOOD!

2pm tired, body is achy day. i'm not sick, just body is achy. i did have a tetinus shot yesterday so that is def contributing to an overall achy feeling! 100 cal in more chocolate covered cherry thing. 

4pm 1 chocolate 50  :-) SO GOOD. and a decaf green tea (second cup), couple sucking candies on way home 50

Dinner before workout: lots of lightly sauteed veggies 100-150, roll 120 with 2 egg whites 40, and 1/4 avo 80, blueberries 100. total here: 500

Weight: 114.5

Weight 115 on drs scale this AM sounds good to me ! In terms of BMI, it put me actually dead center for a healthy BMI /  ideal weight based on my weight and height. what more can i ask right?

today I have optical appt (9:30am) , full physical (11am-12pm) and dentist (5:45pm) all walking distance and within 15 min from my apt! I plan to stay out of the apt mostly and stay at the library to do Paris research as well as reply to my Paris friend since she sent me multiple different messages at the end of last week that I have yet to catch up on - I was waiting to do it today. On purpose I have few plans this afternoon so I can be relaxed at library to research - after I fill up my laundry card at housing office so I can continue to do laundry next weekend lol 

home kombucha 50

snacking at dr: iced coffee 50, apple juice bc gave blood don’t need to pass out again 140, dark chocolate 80, bar bc couldn’t hold out ! 250

12:45pm lunch I am not going home - going to have sushi and miso soup I think. 650 and very filling! Also under $7 and actually good! Only cheap and convenient sushi place I know !

3:30-4 while at library doing research dark chocolate so good with that coffee I have been lugging around all day :) 150

before dentist small bag kettle potato chips nice 150

dinner: lots of cooked eggplant with little sauce 200, wrap 80 with avocado 80 and egg 80, salt, pepper, yogurt for dessert 120. total here: 550, tasty.

2 smallish plums 60

2160, excellent.

3day 2253/day...stilll high - and seems i have gained a pound or two.  but i keep waking up with an appetite in the middle of the night, bad habit i guess!

___________________________________________________

I ended up staying at the library from 1:30pm-4:30pm, used the bathroom and had a few drinks/chocolate but also did a fair bit of research making it a very well-spent day! I was glad not to stop back home at my place and researched enough and i'm satisfied with today! Usually, you can only use a computer for 30min, but, there wasn't many people needing one and there was no wait (extra computers were always available), so i had used the computer for 3hours no problem! so happy, once again, that i was doing this research at the library and not at my apartment! 

and then after library, i walked the short 10 min or so walk to the dentist. so easy! then i walked home, around 7pm with leftovers for dinner. what a great day!

 _______________________________________________

i walked a little bit today but nothing to write home about! Probably, by day’s end, I’ll have walked around 2.5 miles that’s it. Good amount for really just a rest day.

Progress as of today: -0.5 lbs lost so far, only 1.5 lbs to go!

_________________________________________

 I've been getting a few things done today, now 12:30pm and i did all my laundry including bed sheets  (which i have decided as of late to wash only every other week - except pillow covers which i wash every week...), and cleaned hamster cage :) 

__________________________________________

It's a rather raining day until 2pm, so planning to be home until then unless I decide to drive to get an oil change and pick up boots a coworker wants to give me (these seem to be high possibilities).  Or i might just read at home. My legs are sore from extra walking the past couple days...

Progress as of today: -0.5 lbs lost so far, only 1.5 lbs to go!

Donkey on 03/10/2019:
A gray day here too - you're getting all the rain we had yesterday. Free car wash! My car looks so nice and clean, now that it's been thoroughly rinsed off!

If your legs are sore, might be a good idea just to rest. I hope you have a nice day even with the rain. I love rain :)

Horn_of_plenty on 03/10/2019:
i did rest my legs mostly ;)

but i didn't get out early enough for the free car wash!

wishing you a good day tomorrow...slow getting back on here :)


happy-1 on 03/11/2019:
Happy hamster!

Omg totally and the hamster always is cleaner and more kissable haha when I am taking her out of a clean cage !

___________________________________________

tomorrow's plans are not so much but enough:

probably swing by supermarket at some point,probably later in day.

the gym. 

laundry in morning since i'm not wanting to do it tonight!

______________________________________________

of course got into an argument with mom and dad today over really something so stupid maybe write about it later but really don't care to even think about it. they really think everything their way. this will be difficult when they are older and aging. 

__________________________________

Later goals (approx 4pm?) when i'm back from Long Island and close to my apt: swing by Vitamin shoppe to pick up some amino drinks with my coupon :), swing by library in same area to pick up my reserved Paris travel guides! (4 in all!)...come back home and do leg workout, maybe also swing by a place where i can buy a leg muscle roller...as i don't have a foam roller and want a longer one that i dont have to use with my hands (right now i have a rod, but you have to work it on your leg by using your arms, i'd rather have a roller that i "roll over")

Progress as of today: -0.5 lbs lost so far, only 1.5 lbs to go!

Donkey on 03/09/2019:
I hope you have a nice visit with your folks. Is mom home from the hospital?

Do you think your increased hunger is weather-related, emotional, or perhaps getting sick (referencing that odd feeling in your tongue)? Could it be something like that? Maybe it's just cyclical - sometimes we eat more, sometimes we eat less. (??)

Horn_of_plenty on 03/10/2019:
mom left hospital but is in rehab...lots of work and time before she goes home due to the pelvic fracture and 7 ribs. the pelvis issue has caused difficulty to walk so she's in a wheelchair except for when a nurse is helping her.

the tongue thing was an irritation i think from a food - the mango rind candy mixed with tamarind that i had three of and the last one i was sucking on, instead of just chewing and swallowing, that irritated my throat. there are def times when i am on an "eating week!"

i'm taking tomorrow off - 3 dr's appts...glad to not be going to work. need a break.

laying in bed friday night hungry! whats going on? small wrap with seared tuna 200, and some roasted eggplant. 100. not sure why i'm SO HUNGRY lately!

___________________________________________________________

Update about going into the electrrical subway field yesterday: seeing a lot of older men (50s and 60s) in great shape reminded me how office work isn't going to help me become a court officer and how much exercise changes in my routines will be needed to get cardio under control. men in the field are so fit not only from their jobs, but these men also keep their health in check to be able to do their jobs by doing ADDITIONAL cardio after work and weights. there's a reason why they look so fit - and it's not due to genetics on their part. Just in a workday, they are walking well over 5 miles whereas with my commute without added walking, i'm only at 1.5-2 miles for the day. that's why the 2.5 miles days are so important. but it just goes to show how a physical job just puts them in a whole different fitness category compared to office workers trying to get a little exercise into a sedentary day!  Most of the men, many!, in the field (big project) are prob closer to 30's-50's age group and look surpringly better (above avg) compared to the general population that's not in hands-on labor type of jobs.  but it's not only due to a physical job..it's bc their lifestyles are in general more active even on weekends.

_______________________________________________________________

AGAIN 4am woke up hungry, so had rest of blueberries, an apple, peanut butter  250. 

kombucha 50.

8:45am breakfast: wrap 80, egg 70, avocado 80, salt/pepper, coffee 50. total here: 280

10:30 bar and candy 200

11am chocolates 120, HUNGRY!  the work is hard and i'm having issues.

Indulgent lunch: roasted eggplant 150?, roasted peppers 100?, seared tuna 200? maybe more, and these wantons filled with shrimp, 5 of them and at least 50 cals each if not a hair more as they were extremely dense type of wantons 350. 800. VERY big lunch, really satisfied now and basically happy. slightly indulgent, but, pleasantly full. 

close to 4pm snack: dark choc lava truffle..says only 50 cals do i believe it? by godiva.

5pm Snack 2: apple 100

6pm chocolate and tea, still at work wanting to finish something :) 150

Dinner: on walk coffee, later a bar total 300

2300, awesome...could have been a bit higher!

7 day avg: approx 2160, decent.

did my 4k walk.

grabbed extra food at lunch, so i have veggies if i want them for the weekend.

wasn't working well today, so, staying at work to finish something bc i want it done sick of this procrastination!!!!!!

____________________________________________________

Tongue still extremely irritated at the base near my throat started garlgling with salt water last night and will continue that. should heal by Monday i hope!

__________________________________________________________

My my plan is to separate my abs/upper body workouts from leg days.  I am not in love with my home workouts being so long anymore.

Legs workouts are shorter and not as strenuous and will be good to do separate from upper as upper is a much longer program (approx double the amount of workouts as i do for legs) and I’m fed up with how long my home workouts have become, many days i end well after 10pm.  

Breaking upper and lower exercises up, for at least a couple months until end of April, will help me get to bed early so I don’t have to be so tired anymore on days following workouts as it's not helping me feel good at work or get thru the week well anymore.

I'm ready to work on this and how i can make the exercise a better fit with my commute and lifestyle. I'll work on this more.  Lately, i've skipped cardio on weekends at least for the past month. This weekend i'll start adding walking back in as the weather will be better around 50F not  25F like it was the past few days. I'm looking to get into moving more, being more positive and getting on track.

Just today a male coworker who also changed his commute since summer to here with less walking now, has complained he gained 20lbs this winter bc his lifestlye / work commute changed.

It just goes to show that little changes add up either positively or negatively. in his, coworker's case, lack of exercise and wintertime more at home led to 20lbs gain..over the course of the fall/winter. 

_________________________________________

I'm really happy today is Friday and also that i skipped all leg exercises last night.

I was able to get more sleep and now i am considering breaking up my workouts again ?  the full body workout is starting to be too much on worknights...but then i have to workout many days, i have to think about this!

Progress as of today: -0.5 lbs lost so far, only 1.5 lbs to go!

Donkey on 03/08/2019:
I agree: a desk job isn't going to do you any favors as far as physical fitness or training. I sometimes wonder if I would be better off working at a big box store, walking around, etc., than sitting at my desk. Thank goodness my FitBit reminds me to get up every hour to walk around. That is the EXACT reason why I upgraded my FitBit, because the old one didn't have that reminder function.

A change in weights routine sounds really good!

horn_of_plenty on 03/08/2019:
yes, soon those nights of sleeping late because "it's workout night" are going to be gone :) i will have to soon (after the trip) consider how i will get myself running :)

until then, workouts will be broken up, except for the weekend ones, though, we'll see i might even break those up!

legs for me can easily be done any time of day, it's an easier set of exercises bc i do NOT push myself to the same stress as i put on my upper body. too many past injuries to exercise my lower body in such a forceful way, so, i can easily see myself even doing legs separate from arms even sometimes on weekends. by doing them separate from arms, all workouts will be shorter and not so "marathon-like" as i do NOT really enjoy them anymore being so long :)


Donkey on 03/08/2019:
PS I am having issues with food this week too. Gonna turn the corner on that TODAY.

horn_of_plenty on 03/08/2019:
yeah, higher cal week by me, but, i also will be more careful on weekend. I'm not stressing, as i also have been walking less and know i can easily do a little better so i know once i make slight changes, i'll feel good :)

and this was awesome, it was the rind mixed with tamarind and made into a big gel


Donkey on 03/07/2019:
I'm sorry the cheesecake didn't turn out. That's always so disappointing when I make keto things and it's like, bleh. Especially an eggy taste - no thanks.

I hope you are not getting sick. I had that tickle in my throat on Tuesday. I swabbed my nose with Zicam and woke up the next morning feeling OK. Zinc has helped me not get sick this year, truly.

horn_of_plenty on 03/07/2019:
I Think it's an irritation / pimple / sore on back of my tongue.

horn_of_plenty on 03/07/2019:
very back of tongue which basically is in very close relation to my throat causing issues with even when i talk...it's my tongue i think rather than throat and one of the only times i've ever really felt this weird feeling!

Nice - gotta love happy days!!

So, what exactly does kombucha do for you? I have never tried it.

horn_of_plenty on 03/05/2019:
it's a probiotic...same effect as like oatmeal, coffee, or a yogurt...it stimatulates your bowels to move.!!!!!!!

sometimes it works very well, but if i eat too much volume of food too late at night, nothing works and i'm bloated the next day.

horn_of_plenty on 03/05/2019:
some days it works like a charm but recently i'm having bouts of bloating more often again.

horn_of_plenty on 03/05/2019:
could be bc of the wraps i bought this time around...too high fiber.


legcramps on 03/05/2019:
Oh I see, I might have to give it a try sometime

horn_of_plenty on 03/05/2019:
lately, i find my body is just off and it prefers having a bowel movement unconveniently at work, which doesn't work well especially if gas is involved!

Horn_of_plenty on 03/05/2019:
i love it on an empty stomach....it's carbonated and i like to relax and drink it while i watch news for like 15 minutes in the mornings.


Donkey on 03/06/2019:
Looks like it was a really good day - those are nice to have :)

horn_of_plenty on 03/06/2019:
yes, these week has been quite nice.

tonight, i'm deciding if i want to stay at work a little extra to do more Paris research tonight...even a half hour should be enough :)

...or if i should get home and walk a little... have foot and hand warmers since it's around 20F today/tonight!

we shall see :) haven't been walking much!....

Lately, i am having hungry days and starting with M&M's isn't the smartest as my morning does get hungrier, lol...must remember this tidbit!

3:30am shredded wheat onyorgum cereal sooo good with almond milk 200. woke up a couple times during night and this last time i had a snack as i had a small appetite.

Kombucha 50

8:45am Work 1st breakfast: white chocolate coated peanut M&Ms 200, coffee 50

9:45am Work 2nd breakfast wrap 80, saag spinach 150, egg 70: 300

11&12pm: cashews and pistachios 150

Lunch: TASTY higher cal leftovers from yesterday's lunch with dad...perfect for a snowy day...rice 200?, sauteed eggplant 150?, fried tofu 200?, and some cherry tomatoes 50. total here: 600 (hopefully not more, a lot of sauce somewhat!)

...fine..it will end up a slightly higher cal, around 2200-2300 day)

snacks: i have a dark chocolate cherry and a drink to carry me over..100 i think. and around 50 cal cashews. feeling nauseous like i wanna leave! LOL...just an hour left :)

5pm - staying an hour or so until 6pm (since i don't have sneakers so the commute home will be simple and without exercise so i have an hour to spare!) to research Paris!!! 70 calories of caramel hershey's kisses; and 3more regular kisses 70...chocolates while i research!

dinner: TBD, thinking yogurt and cranberries...or a bar....we'll see.!!! sorpressa pork sausage 100, egg white 20, saag 150 and a piece cheese 30, toasted wrap so good 80. still hungry, but total here: 380., apple 100

2380.

3day: 2226

early bedtime i'm thining, since i don't have any exercise goals at all for today :)

Evening plans: early to bed...cannot seem to get enough sleep lately it's ALL I WANT?!

It snowed, but will warm up and melt easily so i could have walked home tonight the 2.5mi, but i don't have appropriate walking shoes to do the long commute walk..when i get home i do plan on doing the stairs, one time, from my 9th floor up to the 23rd. ...so, 15 flights. it leaves me so winded...the plan is to just do this to raise my heart rate some days of the week ...and try to continue this habit.

Progress as of today: -0.5 lbs lost so far, only 1.5 lbs to go!

Stair climbing is a great option to work in some extra cardio! And it gets my heart rate climbing pretty fast too - way more than just walking would. Have a great day!

yes - it was always a goal to incorporate it since my apt bldg makes it so easy to do ...with the huge stairwell 23 floors total....and there's a (young-er and fitter than most) retired guy who does them most days...his doing them inspired me to really start getting into it...just starting with 15 floors at first :) my floor 9-23 and take the elevator back down ;)
