(counting calories/walking/elliptical/weights)
Weight: 113.5

i admit i'm socially awkward in the workplace ...i love my personal space and quiet time...and in this room with 4 people (5 including me and sometimes 6) it's not like that at all.  lots of dumb chatter about nothing and really sometimes it gets annoying to me a little bit (not a major annoyance). i am just so not a major people person or need to socially be entertained..so it's sorta stressful to sit surrounded by talking and be anxious (just slightly) from it as i work. also someone i know has headphones on her neck and i hear the music (clubbing music and also pop) and it's truly hard for me to work this way...

still i'm happy....just admitting my social akwardness.


home: kombucha 50

Work: coffee 50, piece of amazing tiramisu cake best cake i had in over a year i think! from italian bakery coworker brought it bc she's a grandmother again! and a cookie it came with also (lady finger?) 400, fruit later on 50.

snack: almonds?

lunch: probably my breakfast sandwich which was wrap 60, half avocado 160, turkey deli meat 50, veggies 100. 400 apple 100

snack: coffee and cookie 120

before gym: tbd i think just caffeine and sweet bar of some sort 100-200 half a small egg and avocado wrap i think with some chicken? from coworker 300 and strawberries 50. some caffeine. and a bite of chocolate to taste a sample on way home from manhattan. 50

1700 approx

after gym: maybe just a protein cookie. not sure, maybe indian on rice cake with tofu. getting sick of so much sugar and sweet things i think. 400



my face is very broken out due to lots of caffeine, too much light whipped cream, too much light ice cream, and being constipated for a few days this week. ... it's clearing up bc i'm using honey on my face which is good for antibacterial properties it has! but my face would be clear if i'd cut down on the jello, etc. i do plan to take a break this weekend from at least the whipped cream, ice cream & jello. i'll also refrain from energy drinks, except i will consume coffee.

truth is, i need better meals again at night and evening after work. def too much whipped cream, ice cream.  i bought saag the indian spinach dish which is delicious to eat over rice crackers this weekend. that is a healthy option and nutritious. i'm planning to buy Indian often as it's on my way home. It has healthy oils, healthy veggies...even the cauliflower mixed with potato is good for me. potato in general is so healthy and good for digestion. i was too tired this week partially from ****ty nutrition. so i'm at least knowing in my mind i must strive to change some things still. 

but overall, i'm happy.

and when i eat avocado, things like my skin improve greatly too.

i'm happy...have a good day, all.

Progress as of today: 0.5 lbs lost so far, only 3.5 lbs to go!

innerpeace on 06/08/2018:
To be perfectly honest, you can eat some weird food...maybe I should try it LOL. I have ate Indian foods several times and there are a few spices I'd rather not eat again.

I'm glad you stick with your goals, you are a true inspiration.

horn_of_plenty on 06/08/2018:
sometimes my diet is out there yes...i honestly do go mostly by calories and try to include protein and fat and carbs. sometimes it's too much sugar bc of the light ice cream, bars, etc...but yeah, i try to stick with my goals.

being in NYC, there's so many food options and light ones and ways to balance calories, with all my knowldge and the fact i live alone, it's not a problem to eat to maintain my weight...though my choices aren't the healthiest i know.

we have great indian food and the spices are strong yes, as a kid i hated strong flavors, now i love it.

horn_of_plenty on 06/08/2018:
thank you for the kind words!

horn_of_plenty on 06/08/2018:
oh and eating weird is easier for me as i live alone ;) nobody is affected except myself.

happy-1 on 06/08/2018:
I wear great big headphones even when i'm not listening to people so people don't bug me when I am working. Developers sometimes use folded paper signs (a sheet of paper folded into a pyramid) to say whether they are too busy to be disturbed. But I feel you on the headphone pop noise... where you almost here the music but mostly you hear the electronic vibration... that makes me crazy. I try to be in the office early before people are there to get stuff done and then leave early.

happy-1 on 06/08/2018:
I have blocked pores toi. Good reminder to use my face cream at night.

horn_of_plenty on 06/08/2018:
Honey really helps after a shower to use it...wash it off lightly after a shower and it's ok if it remains in your pores bc it continues to be antibacterial.

my face is a mess due to hormones, the junk i've been eating, caffeine...ugh.

bearcountrygg on 06/08/2018:
I would find the chatter distracting...…..

Horn_of_plenty on 06/08/2018:
i don't like it because it's not my cup of tea socially. i was asked to make a joke today and i don't have any jokes so i told the project manager (he's only 29!) i'd have a joke for him on Monday...lol...i don't like the unstructured type of job environment.

Horn_of_plenty on 06/08/2018:
but they are nice and i like the woman i am working directly for....so this is great overall. i don't expect most people to be like me - i've always been in the minority ;)

Donkey on 06/08/2018:
Queen Bee is a chatterbox too. Drives me nuts and she's two "rooms" down. I feel your pain.

I liked Happy's idea of wearing headphones just so people leave you alone, LOL...

horn_of_plenty on 06/09/2018:
Headphones wouldn't be good bc I can't hear anything of importance at all .... every once in awhile there's things worth hearing ;)

Donkey on 06/09/2018:
Sometimes I become all too aware that I don't fit in with other social butterflies. I can't change who I am, but sometimes that awareness is a bit painful. I completely get what you wrote - how you're happy, but just putting it out there that, hey, this ain't me.

horn_of_plenty on 06/09/2018:
Exactly - and I do admit it's a bit much socialization For me each day but it is what it is :) gotta go to work lol

bearcountrygg on 06/09/2018:
I'm the same way.....rather be alone personally...…….

horn_of_plenty on 06/09/2018:
Yes fully rather be alone.

Progress as of today: 0.5 lbs lost so far, only 3.5 lbs to go!

bearcountrygg on 06/07/2018:
The salami...if its beef...will add some iron.

horn_of_plenty on 06/07/2018:
yeah. just a few small slices, thank you. i think i need more beans and greens...but yes i should consider that salami!

Horn_of_plenty on 06/07/2018:

Yeah get the most complicated one with the most ways to push and pull you can afford. Ever since last year I am terrified of the chiropractor and haven't felt a need to go back since I started using that. Looking around for a small one to keep in the car

Progress as of today: 0.5 lbs lost so far, only 3.5 lbs to go!

bearcountrygg on 06/06/2018:
Good food choices!

horn_of_plenty on 06/06/2018:
Thank you -- enjoying veggies again :)

Donkey on 06/07/2018:
How was the class?

I had to LOL when I read your egg calorie count - because the yolk fell on the floor. Oh my how many times have I been saved extra calories because of a spill or accident like that?

horn_of_plenty on 06/07/2018:
class is good because it ends earlier...is a half hour shorter...

and for the 1.5 hours that i sit there, the teacher is GREAT, so interesting, has so much knowledge to share, the class is somewhat like a debate class about politics and current events which is INTERESTING and good for almost anyone to be part of. Overall, the content and structure of the class is PERFECT for me. I'm glad to use my free time there. I try to participate a bit in the class...to expand my mind. I'm not a big talker, but i do speak up a little bit rather than not at all like most people. for i have a masters degree, i've been in many classes, i will use the class to my advantage - to expand my horizons and my mind! it's a gift.

it's also just a commitment, no exercise extra or anything else. but it's worth it, to attend a good class especially due to who is teaching. it's thanks to a very smart, engaging, socialable teacher. we are all lucky in this class. he's not boring.

horn_of_plenty on 06/07/2018:
lol with carpeted floors and just the egg yoke popping out and rolling on that carpet....def no good way to clean that off without making a bigger mess haha.... :) great calorie savings!...but today i will get the nutrition in of the yoke ;)

bearcountrygg on 06/07/2018:
Hope the yolk didn't rollunder the fridge!!!!!!! That happens here!!!

bearcountrygg on 06/05/2018:
Fresh apricots or dried?

horn_of_plenty on 06/05/2018:
only fresh....dried is candy to me.

bearcountrygg on 06/05/2018:
fresh are zero ww points and dried have points for that same reason. Both are good though.

horn_of_plenty on 06/05/2018:
bc the dried are far less filling bc they are dried up - no water. so like a half cup of dried ones takes up a half cup but originally they were each a half cup! but like 5 apricots dried fit in a half cup size...also, sugar might be sometimes added to dried ones.

half cup is less filling, takes up far less space for more calories...as water has been sucked out so they will be more concentrated with sugar and less filling...all dried things especially fruit is this way.

Maria7 on 06/05/2018:
Hope you are having a good day. :-)

horn_of_plenty on 06/06/2018:
overall it was great! :)

Donkey on 06/05/2018:
Very good food day!

While I acknowledge what you said about dried fruit -- this is not new information to me -- when I feel like "indulging" or needing a "sweet", I confess that I grab a small piece or 2 of dried pineapple. It IS just like candy, but I have to think it's a *little* better than just straight out candy. A piece or 2, and I'm set. I LOVE dried apricots, but they are a food that I have problems eating in moderation because they are SO yummy!

Donkey on 06/05/2018:
PS Fresh apricots are very yummy too! A different experience than dried, but VERY yummy!

horn_of_plenty on 06/06/2018:
Yes I'd agree dried fruit is a healthier indulgence and a good pick me up before exercise or with a coffee ;) lol that's how I would do it !

graindart on 06/06/2018:
Fresh vs dried for me comes down to portion control. I can eat a piece of fresh fruit and be mostly satisfied for the time. When dealing with dried fruit, it's much easier to eat several pieces that can amount to a few pieces of that same fruit (minus the water). So eating dried fruit usually ends up with double the intake of calories for me.

horn_of_plenty on 06/06/2018:
agreed, i stay away from dried fruit usually bc to me it's an utter waste of calories! once in awhile i'll add it to my oatmeal like with cranberries which are lowest in sugar and sometimes sold as low sugar.

Weight: 113.5

250 couldn't sleep too much caffeine so ended up splurgng on whipped cream and yes i'm really bloated this AM i think due to tons of salt yesterday eve after gym...all is good everything should be more normal by Tuesday or Wednesday :)

Kombucha 50 in morning..

Oatmeal mix 380 same as last week, siracha almonds (they're great) 70, coffee 50. 500.

snack: almonds if needed 100

900 a bit high for the morning but cals have been good so far this weekend so i'm ok for today :)

lunch: buying indian...ate a bit too much but it was great. 800 approx healthy. indian prepared creamy spinach (saag) egg/egg white and crackers

snack: siracha almonds 70 AND COOKIE 80 (staying at work late tonight so i don't have to come in early wednesday)

...dinner: more Indian is what i want or ice cream? i want to cook the cauliflower fried rice...or i'll have to stick it in the freezer tonight so the riced cauliflower doesn't spoil. plan is to not do a lot tonight. perhaps sleep early. rice is prob going in freezer as i'm not in the mood to cook.

i want my typical light dinner...will buy jello and have ice cream. maybe some whipped cream also. all other meals were healthy today as well as snacks, so i'm fine.

ice cream 300, chips servings 400. 700 emotional eating.

2550, not great, not terrible!

and whipped cream 250...2800. first time in a LONG time i've had calories this high.

new day today in a new office, same job and address, different room.

3day: 2299 yucky. total emotional eating. i could do much better...this day is DONE!


they moved my seat at the office on friday on my day off bc higher administration wants that small office for 1 person of imporatance rather than myself and someone who's retiring in August, so i'm in a bigger room with more than 1 coworker now (4 others) and a lot more distraction and also less freedom for me personally like now when i go to lunch people know! and they know how often i get up for bathroom, etc., if i'm late...but i do right and don't take advantage so i should be OK!....and for awhile i'll prob have to watch myself on the internet again..

Progress as of today: 0.5 lbs lost so far, only 3.5 lbs to go!

bearcountrygg on 06/04/2018:
Makes Monday especially hard when you can't sleep the night before....hope you can make up for it tonight.

horn_of_plenty on 06/04/2018:
yes, that's my plan :) at least my gym session was amazing bc caffeine (extra) really does give you wings! but too much also caused acne once again...

no worries :) they are my own choices!

Donkey on 06/04/2018:
I hate it when people at work make big changes to my stuff when I'm out. You're taking this quite well.

Your pics of Central park were beautiful....did you take them with your phone?

Horn_of_plenty on 06/03/2018:
yes i did! i had no idea that Central park had waterfalls and also once had 3 forts. Waterfalls and all lakes are totally man made though! The park, parts that i saw as we didn't see the whole 9 mile i think park, was amazing and i didn't know it was that special! my phone isn't even a new phone but with a park as beautiful as central park, everything looks good!

Horn_of_plenty on 06/03/2018:
oops, around 6 miles to circle it.

Sometimes you just have to let these food things ride out. Otherwise, restriction backfires and that brings problems thatare harder to work out.

horn_of_plenty on 06/03/2018:
Yes agreed I am just happy I know I am getting in good protein and veggies also despite a crazy meal of desserts - it seems to work out alright to eat this way !

1300 up until party.



got up late

organized apt a bit

doing laundry

writing to you all...and watching some tv

going out to bike & walk jog after my laundry is done...

(i might cook cauliflower fried rice as i just bought the cauliflower rice and a bag of frozen peas and carrots yesterday on my way home :) and i believe i have everything else i need like soy sauce...i once made it but just the cauliflower and it didn't turn out great so this time i want to make it right!) if i don't cook it today, it will happen sooner or later!

and then off to the event tonight for my dad...i may drive to my parents so i can go with them to the event, but we'll see. it's extra driving - maybe it could be good to show up with them, i haven't made up my mind just yet.

glad i'm home bc my hormones are whacky and i've been using the bathroom all morning / afternoon.

i wish i had someone to bring / show up with :/ parents offered i go with them, but it's just extra driving to them first.

Donkey on 06/01/2018:
Have fun tonight!

I need to be spending more time in the bathroom... if you know what I mean. I need to try to make that "cauliflower rice"... Just don't have the time to focus on that right now.

Horn_of_plenty on 06/02/2018:
yeah....same here with the cauliflower rice...i should just freeze the cauliflower in my freezer as it's already in rice form and would hate for it to spoil!!! yes, that's probably what i should do! as i don't think i'll be doing it tomorrow and now heading to bed...extremely active weekend!

(counting calories/walking/elliptical/weights)
Weight: 113.5

Oatmeal and coffee just like yesterday. 450

snack: peanuts 200

Lunch: veggies 50, egg/white 100, 1/2 avocado on matzah cracker 250 with salt/pepper, apple? 100 500.

snacks: clementines 30 and choc covered pomegranates 100 (tired day...and i think hormones are starting to call my name - things starting to move i think in my abs due to period coming oh yay lol)

Before gym: not sure, just tired and can't wait to get gym outta the way and sleep in tomorrow. sandwiches before and after gym, 350 each. so 700. too much caffeine but it thankfully wore off as the workout progressed. the start was bad bc i had to keep resting as the caffeine was too much. this is basically why i stopped the energy drinks mostly...but tonight i had bc i knew i had off tomorrow and i had an extra late night workout till 9:30pm.

2000 total. 

good night everyone. hoping to sleep quite a bit tomorrow.

2090 6 day.




Tonight is gym. Looking forward to keeping my progress steady.

Tomorrow will be jogging at nearby park. and sleeping in and laundry.


THIS WILL BE SUNDAY morning instead of tomorrow bc i'm really tired and will enjoy SLEEPING in tomorrow and not getting up till i feel like it! I'm taking off tomorrow but it's supposed to rain and i signed up for a tour of central park for two hours walking.

i may cancel that and reschedule and just sleep in as lately i'm struggling to get up and also sleeping less...so sleeping in would be very nice! But i'll try to keep it scheduled for tomorrow morning, the tour.  My phone says thunderstorms whch may not be all day - i think it's important to be active so i'll keep checking my phone ot see hourly forecast for friday morning. To be at the tour at 10, i have to leave my place around 8am so it's still a sorta early wakeup..i can always come home and take  a nap before the event, maybe! like i said, i most probably will do the healthy walking tour, as long as the rain doesn't look too bad.

Later on, I have an event around 45 min away Friday night that i DO have to dress up for - a dinner dance. My dad is being honored, the reason i am attending. That's the major reason for me taking Friday off as I was NOT keen on working a full day 8-4:30, going home and getting there around 6pm, quickly prepping, and heading out to a party that starts at 7:30. It's funny how i'm fine to do it with the gym...but...that doesn't involve me looking my "best."


Progress as of today: 0.5 lbs lost so far, only 3.5 lbs to go!

bearcountrygg on 05/31/2018:
Rain here too...central park in a thunder storm would be not a good idea....better to cancel...have fun at the dinner / dance.

horn_of_plenty on 05/31/2018:
thanks, yes, i'll be checking the weather up until tonight when i might cancel and still take the day off but get a head start on laundry, some cooking, and still jog / do cardio - at gym or at a park by me if the weather is decent enough...

horn_of_plenty - Wednesday May 30, 2018
(counting calories/walking/elliptical/weights)
Weight: 113.5

kombucha 150

oatmeal and coffee same as yesterday 450

peanuts 200

lunch from home egg/whites 80, 1/2 avocado on matzah 280, green pepper 25

snack couple clementines

later before class a granola bar 200 with water..very late to class i should miss half, i'm not really even upset at myself with it. i just don't care right now bc it's not that important to me - i'll say i had to stay at work & that i'll try to do better the remaining sessions. it's a free course and you just need to show up...usually i care more, right now, i'm just trying to get it done any way possible. i know, not the best example i'm setting.

i just couldn't get out of my apartment any earlier, wanted to use the bathroom and didn't care about leaving earlier if i couldn't do that. there was traffic heading home yesterday and i got to the the gym pretty late and i was home late around 9pm...so being off Friday to do anything but work is a great thing...i am going to Central Park on a 2hr Secrets of the Park walking tour that i got half price...

...lately, i find it important to fit movement in when possible more than my regular. really trying here and just wanted to get that course out of the way...so that if i'm chosen for jury duty and i'm actually chosen to go a few days, i can be paid at 80% of my salary instead of the typical $40 a day....that's what this course gives me entitlement towards. It's 5 weeks, Wednesdays 5-7pm. Tonight i hope to get there by 5:45. TEACHER WAS FABULOUS, FUNNY, KEEPS THE MOMENTUM...HAPPY. I SHOULD GET THERE ON TIME FOR THE 4 REMAINING CLASSES JUST BECAUSE I OWE IT TO THE TEACHER AND OTHER STUDENTS IN THE CLASS. HE MADE ME LAUGH AND I REALLY LOVE THE CONTENT. IT'S A GREAT CLASS.

Lighter dinner: 350, 260 it was a few sf jello 50, a wrap with chicken deli meat, some extra salt and pepper and garlic, and mashed avocado spread 300, followed by whipped cream with light ice cream. tasty. glad at least i'm eating avocado lately which is one of the best things i consume.

2050 :)total :)
5day: 2110, good.
GOOD, decided to relax :) continue watching the Mike&Molly series i borrowed from library :) class i got to late & it ended early. 



early to bed after class (which i'm missing half of....but it's not a test kinda class and last class i never missed any days or was late...so....i'm late today. so be it!) glad i took off Friday of this week...despite having Monday off I feel like i'm just boucing off the walls activity to activity!


i'll be late to class bc i didn't come early to work bc i was drinking kombucha bc i really wanted to use the bathroom this AM and did, but left half hour later than planned, still on time to work, just not early as i meant to be half hour early...anyways, moving on


Progress as of today: 0.5 lbs lost so far, only 3.5 lbs to go!

Do you boil the eggs and just throw out some of the yolks?

horn_of_plenty on 05/30/2018:
YES...it's also very easy to bring to work - i bring them whole in their shells and crack them open at work while having lunch!

i used to buy just whites in the containers of liquid eggs to make omelettes at home on weekends, but now i also just separate out the yokes before cooking the omelette. way better price.

horn_of_plenty on 05/30/2018:
i don't throw out all yokes bc some yoke is more satisfying than skipping it completely (keeps me fuller longer to have some yolk/1 yolk)

horn_of_plenty on 05/30/2018:
oh, and bc there is nutrition to the yolk :)

bearcountrygg on 05/30/2018:
Yeah...we eat the yolks...but I usually never eat more than 2...so I hadn't given it much thought.

horn_of_plenty on 05/30/2018:
i'd eat 1 yolk, saves a lot of cals.

bearcountrygg on 05/30/2018:
On WW...eggs are zero points.....including the yolk...I'm not sure why.

Horn_of_plenty on 05/30/2018:
that is weird.
