(counting calories/walking/elliptical/weights)
Weight: 112.0

750 thru 11am

Snack of cheese from coworker really good 100

Noon granola bar before short 15 min walk & lunch 100

Healthy lunch from deli: lots of shrimp which turns out VERY spicy in a cilantro and hot pepper light sauce (not what i expected but definitley closes off the appetite!) 200?, and lots of portabella mushrooms only lightly coated (healthy lunch!) 150...beause i ate a ton thru the morning.

1300 after a FILLING lunch which is what i love! filling veggies and some protein....not planning on another snack during work at all, just dinner and i'm planning on sushi from a place in walking distance to the bus by me (not looking to eat at home...my workout clothes are waiting for me IN MY CAR) so plan is just to walk home, drop something off on the walk at Rickys, get in my car & go!).

500-550 healthy dinner (sushi)

250 after workout.

2050 or so. good.

3day = 2050 = very good for this week as my goal has been to stay just around this amount for awhile to see what my weight does.

tomorrow after work i have a meeting to go to...it's not right after work tho. so i'll come home, eat dinner, then walk there (it's 10 minutes away from my apt).  i'd rather skip it, but i know i should JUST GO. 

___________________________________

I will walk 10-15min at lunch...

__________________________________

now that i start at 7am i am def getting quite hungry in the morning...but good thing is i leave at 3:30 to go home, so if i have a good lunch i shouldn't need too much in the afternoon besides a small snack - forgot my clementine...i'll prob have carbs, maybe nuts.

__________________________________

...gym tonight....

...ok back to work. 

___________________________________

I'm embarassed about how weak my legs are.  Even just standing on the subway train for 20-30 min i can feel it...I obviously need to move more and not less. Will work on it.

Gym session was good but my pushups suck! my situps have gotten better there. i guess i just need to do more faster and smaller sets of pushups to build up my endurance and strength to do more :)

my legs feel stronger this week & they are also starting to do a little more at the gym.

Progress as of today: 5 lbs lost so far, only 0 lbs to go!

bearcountrygg on 02/26/2018:
To answer you cocnut water/milk question...I'm drinking coconut water called BAI....says it's an antioxidant and is 10 cals per bottle

horn_of_plenty on 02/26/2018:
i don't think its too much real coconut water...but it is a nice taste. there is caffeine.

i have had all those drinks, yes, they are quite tasty.

but if it's 10 cal, there is hardly any coconut water in it...but a good way to save calories. and made with a mix i think of stevia and erythritol.

talk later!

they also have bai carbonated drinks.


Donkey on 02/26/2018:
Hope you had a good workout at the gym tonight!

Horn_of_plenty on 02/26/2018:
it was :)

bearcountrygg on 02/25/2018:
Did you do the BEEP test?

horn_of_plenty on 02/26/2018:
yeah, i failed it miserably...my legs are completely out of shape, i'll try to do better and train....i would definitely have to improve quite a bit to be considered for the academy - to pass their test. I didn't even get the lowest score...i was completely under par, scary. it shows that my legs / and oxygen intake, etc., are not good.

i have to decide if it's even worth it to train. i think it is...but i'm a long ways off. then again, i don't run...so if i could start training again, there's hope for me...though i definitely will have to see improvement...and not too many backslides.

it wasn't good. i need to def keep training and improving. my starting point is horrible, literally.

i didn't realize it would be as difficult, again, until i tried it.....not sure if i should just quit on this...for now i'll keep it as a goal.

horn_of_plenty on 02/26/2018:
I am still debating if I can improve enough with training because health manuals and different things state that at 35 (which i am) ability decreases...and i'm starting off VERY low...i am thinking I can improve with practice...i am NOT sure i can improve enough. I'll still practice now...not ready to give up yet...i want to see where i am at in the fall / December of this year.

horn_of_plenty on 02/26/2018:
My abs are at an average level and my pushup level is high, my legs are not even at the minimal level....they are below average. they do not even score one point on the exam they give...like i said, i'm seeing if i can improve.

my legs have always got tired easily...from lack of exercise except the time i did exercise them and got to doing 5mi a run right before my injury. I suppose i can improve if i work on it....like i said i'm not sure how MUCH i can improve...i do have 2 years to work on this...before any exam...


Donkey on 02/25/2018:
I love plain yogurt!-- but I confess that lately, my guilty pleasure has been vanilla Greek yogurt (not fat free). If I liked Stevia, I would go this route, since Stevia is natural. I try very hard to limit my artificial sweeteners. (And as you know, I keep trying to cut out white sugar altogether...)

I thought of you... I did go shopping, but my morning was not much and my afternoon (after shopping) was not much either, other than folding laundry/putting away. Gotta gear up for the work week ahead!

9:30am snack: roasted lightly salted almonds 200 and clementine 30

Choc 80 840

lunch: i have leftovers so no need to buy any food until Sunday :) I have enough food for lunch and dinner here at home...planning to do a little cooking Sunday before the work week - to cook healthy dinners - at least the protein part :) i might pick up the bananas and some salad greens / veggies, though after running because i do not have fresh veggies right now in my fridge.

lunch chinese veggies 250? wrap 60 with butter 40, lox50, corn muffin with cooked cranberries 250 = 650.

1500, good...goal is 2050 cals today. dinner plan is light ice cream again...

I Slept 12 hours ! Up and happy! Good weather to try the beep test outside to see where I am at.

beep test i tried but did horribly...tons of room for improvement...i failed it. i am eager to start again to work on my cardio & see how i am next year.

2100 total pretty good.

bearcountrygg on 02/24/2018:
I'm up and Happy Too!!! Here's to being HAPPY!!!!!!

Horn_of_plenty on 02/24/2018:
Cheers to staying on track and responsible for our choices this weekend!


bearcountrygg on 02/24/2018:
YES!!!


Donkey on 02/24/2018:
Good luck with the BEEP test trial today. I hope it goes well!

I'm sorry I didn't get to commenting to wish you luck in the change of your office location. I'm glad to read that your commute went well. The hours sound better to me, too. How does that work out with your class after work?

horn_of_plenty on 02/24/2018:
It won't affect the class and it just means I'll definitely not have to leave early from work to go to it ....no change :)

horn_of_plenty on 02/24/2018:
Just having trouble with not assisting but told I need to complete a whole assignment myself :/

horn_of_plenty on 02/24/2018:
I'll be reaching out to the man I share the office with - there are no cubicles just offices

horn_of_plenty on 02/24/2018:
Time to move off the couch and do this beep test !

Weight: 112.0

Home Kombucha, didn't work 70

Breakfast / Snacks: coffee 100, banana 120, wrap 60 with ketchup 20 and egg 100. 400, salt and pepper cashews 200...hungry and cannot concentrate, jittery...had pb crackers 200

900 before lunch - hopefully not more.

Lunch healthy: clementine 50, roasted potatoes: 200?, marinated mushrooms: 150?, flounder 150? total here 550. food is great in deli across the street! and healthy...plan is to enjoy it for a week or two for now...and maybe just eat more dinners at home! YES...like i can still prepare food, but it will be prepped for my dinner rather than my lunch! that's all...

1450 after lunch...

 Dinner: to be a light dinner of lite ice cream and maybe some fruit. Not more than 400 cal..very light ice cream like 350 cal for the whole pint!

not more than1850 total today.

___________________________________________________

Saturday plans are really simple:go to track and set up for the BEEP test..try it...this will be in morning after breakfast. then lunch & after lunch i'll go to gym for a workout. after that i'm not sure...i'm not even sure what to do Sunday! well...laundry, get some food for the week - i plan to eat out for lunch next week everyday...food is good & healthy so right now i'm going to enjoy it since like i said - it's very HEALTHY.

_____________________________________________________

ending the day on a more positive note: 2070 avg cals per day = DECENT! it's my goal to remain with weekly averages now in the 2000s rather than 2100 or 2200! I'm doing good if i make the choice to eat less today. i can do it!

_____________________________________________________

it won't be a "low cal" week or even moderate cal week, it'll end around 2200 cals per day, but i'll try my best to manage my appetite tonight and eat a lighter dinner - maybe a pint of light ice cream or something to just enjoy the motions of eating but go to bed early tonight...hope to have a more productive day tomorrow after a full night of restful sleep.

____________________________________________________

Last night i was in bed by around 7pm, up at 4:45. It's enough sleep, yes, but lately i am extremely tired and it helps me not to get sick as i transition again to a new workplace and commute as well as new coworkers and slightly new assignments....

I ate a bunch of carbs for dinner and was fully knocked out afterwards...but it's also from all the changes going on for me - my body is definitely still adjusting and i'll prob be finally adjusted by April or so - it's very important right now to me to move thru Winter with continuing my gym sessions and the class i'm taking. I also have a small number of other commitments (just like a couple of them) until April, so, I have enough on my plate until then. I say April because April is in about a month from now and that's how long I figure it'll take me to feel comfortable and used to the new commute (which actually i have a choice of station i use so i'll try a different subway station going home tonight - they are both equally distant from work - around 1/4 mile...)

Progress as of today: 5 lbs lost so far, only 0 lbs to go!

1st day working in NYC during the time i've been an adult. Once, while i was in college, i worked for a brief amount of time there.

So today i'm up earlier, just before 5am, and now i'll leave my apt at 5:45-5:55 to get to work by 7am. Hopefully this is enough time, i think it is & i'll be testing it today and tomorrow.

My new hours will be 7am-3:30...3:30 is the good part....and if i were able to get home by 4:30, that would be amazing! 

Had kombucha early so I'm finally mostly unbloated. Had a banana 200 cal Packed a breakfast wrap 60, one slice salami 20, egg and ketchup 100. 200 400 Also packed a water. I'll def go out or order in lunch - hoping to go out although it's raining today I think by lunchtime....

There's a march in the city Saturday - def not going. I'll be really happy to sleep in. I now wake up around 4:45-5. Scale says I have gained around 2-4lbs

Coffee 100 and cashews 200 700 before lunch really happy it's 11 and that I can go home at 3:30pm

Lunch from right across street huge prepared food marketplace lots of roasted and also sautéed broccoli 150, 2 pieces of plaintains 150, lots of seared tuna with sesame seeds 250? 550-600 - just expensive and i coulda taken a hair less food. it was around $7.50

3pm snacks: 100

bearcountrygg on 02/22/2018:
I'm really curious as to how long your commute was today!

horn_of_plenty on 02/22/2018:
Lol it was around 1hr 15min - and this afternoon I forgot to pay attention to when I got home :)


bearcountrygg on 02/22/2018:
for 32 years D drove to Detroit and we lived anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour away...and he like the travel time to decompress...or plan his day...there are good aspects to it.

horn_of_plenty on 02/23/2018:
Yep it'll be fine :)

not gonna bring lunch to work tomorrow, planning to go out and expore the area for lunch since my coworker / boss is out this week....so i def plan to go out for lunch - and not bringing lunch would be that excuse.!!!!!!! it's the city so there's gonna be tons of food places in that area.

____________________________________________

Gym tonight...helps me in my goals to improve my fitness.

my location is changing again for work so i'm going to also change my hours. it'll take around 25 minutes longer to reach work now and same to come home...so instead of 45 min, it'll be around 1hr and 10min each way. i'm FREAKING TIRED and really not ready for the commute change to start TOMORROW. anyways, the change should be BETTER with me doing more work with someone i already know. I should be acting as an assistant to an estimator / project manager instead of being left to my own devices. I need to pack my stuff today so it can be delivered to the new location tomorrow. it's actually directly in NYC (Manhattan)...not queens or surrounding area. This is cool...maybe actually i realize there might be an Express bus i can take to work - the whole way - gonna look into that now.

Express bus is double the price, adding up to around $120 a month...not sure it's worth it - so i'll just stick with bus and train (takes the same amount of time and physically it more of an exercise if i stick to bus and train rather than sitting straight for an hour on the express bus).

Chocolate is not coming with me to the new work location.

I am going to change my hours, to start earlier @ 7am and get outta work by 3:30pm - instead of 7:30-4.  with a longer commute home, it's hard enough to get to the gym after work - i'd rather aim to get home earlier. lol, but i realize i won't be - as the half hour just covers the additional commute - but maybe there's the express bus...checking this.

__________________________________________________

Home: kombucha 60

Breakfast: wrap and ketchup 80, 1 pc salami and an egg 100, banana 120, coffee 50: 350.

Weight: 112.0

2175 4-day average. tired day.

Home: kombucha (didn't work - lately i'm a bit blocked up sorry tmi) 60

Breakfast: low carb wrap by Tumaro's (loving them again! - i used to be sick of them but boy are they good when they are toasted!) 60, cheese 100, egg 100 and salami only 1 slice, coffee50 , chocolate 50 (yeah still on it). 360.

 saving banana for later and will enjoy with some cashews 220 (too much sugar to eat banana...i seriously need to quit a bit of my sugar to get my body feeling better i think...not quit all sugar, but especially in the mornings here at work while i sit at this desk, i don't think i need to eat all the sugars right now - i wanna get back to more higher fat items - like eating my eggs (and not peanut butter on a wrap) - i do feel much better after the egg and cheese and meat than when i eat peanut butter and i'm starving in two hours. seriously - try it - low carb wraps and an egg and 1 slice salami - i'm not rebuying the cheese...that's the end of it...now i'll toast my sandwiches without it and see how it fills me up - maybe with mustard or ketchup.

650 before lunch.

Lunch: balanced and from home - trying to remember what i ate...half sweet potato with skin 100, 150 in chilli, cauliflower 50, chicken sausage 150, lettuce  50 at most: 500, excellent!...snack of 1 chocolate 50

1250

Snack: clementine

1300.

Dinner: to buy it at lunchtime from the tasty Marketplace for a good dinner to eat before my class tonight...healthy stuff...lots of veggies...not more than 600

2050 actually today....maybe strawberries and jello after class, before bed.

Got everything done this weekend except cleaning the hamster cage which i'll do Thursday night.

I am trying to stop constantly crossing my legs at work and trying to sit with them straight for a little while each day..or as long as i can take it...better circulation i think.

Progress as of today: 5 lbs lost so far, only 0 lbs to go!

bearcountrygg on 02/20/2018:
Yes to not crossing legs...I sat on one leg for years...and still do when I forget...and I'm paying for it now with hip pain....I've been limping 100% of the time now for at least 3 months...definitely better to break those habits while you are still young.

horn_of_plenty on 02/20/2018:
lol, will now uncross my legs...it's def on autopilot over here ... even just stopping for a few minutes a day will be helpful on my end!

i hope some of your ice melts up by you!

400 Greek yogurt and yellow raisins added cinnamon and couple pretzels Dark chicolate at parents house before walk 100 Hour walk from 10-11am legs were tired so I'm happy to be home - had lunch at 11 and took a shower falling asleep for like 45 minutes after my shower. Change of plans bc rock hit my windshield yesterday and having it repaired today Lunch bread 250 with cream cheese 100 and lox 100, persimmon 100

1050... Hopefully car repair done by 3:30 then driving directly to gym after stopping to bring washed clothes and stuff from parents up to my apt first first

coffee and bar before gym 250

1300 :)

Healthy dinner: 250 in carbs, lots of leftover chinese eggplant minus most of the sauce plus lettuce lol 200, chicken sausage 150, strawberries 50. total is 650, excellent!

1950 - very pleased, much better day to end the long weekend right!

3day average: 2216 - won't help weight loss but it's a decent average. The thing i've learned is not to have a bad day and try to balance it - no - but to have many good days instead...and not have all these bad days. to work towards being more successful and careful. less chocolate. less junk.

Progress as of today: 5 lbs lost so far, only 0 lbs to go!

bearcountrygg on 02/19/2018:
That windshield thing is a pain!

horn_of_plenty on 02/19/2018:
It's good we have full coverage - my parents share their plan with me :) - so luckily it's around 15min away and I got a nice walk and lunch in :) and a nap! It's nuts hoe much I sleep!


bearcountrygg on 02/19/2018:
Sounds like maybe the windshield turned out to be something that actually worked in your favor...even though it isn't a fun thing to happen...it did allow you to do some things you might not have done otherwise.

Horn_of_plenty on 02/19/2018:
For Sure :) it's the only reason i got in the long walk...and then had lunch at home with dad so tasty...and fell asleep...it was a good day overall !

i can't complain, it was productive and i didn't overeat!


Donkey on 02/19/2018:
I'm impressed with the walk! Hope your legs won't be rebelling tomorrow... How nice that you had a chance to visit with your folks.

I'd rather see a higher daily caloric intake with healthy foods, than going back to binge-eating. Just my opinion, but trying to offer some perspective.

horn_of_plenty on 02/20/2018:
i agree, just notice the weight gain around my stomach and don't want it to continue - will work on it slowly.

horn_of_plenty on 02/20/2018:
there's so rebellion - i can attribute to soreness only...so we'll just be aware and not be pushing myself to do any extra walking...i wore horrible shoes yesterday - def realize i need to wear better shoes overall, gonna switch out the "fakes" i bought in colombia with no support - and use better sneakers even going to work. but overall, i realize i need to lay back on the cardio rest of this week.

The soup in AM was very tasty - glad I did the taxes and now can forget about them :) my friend had done his the day before so it motivated me to do the same and get them done too!

horn_of_plenty on 02/19/2018:
In the past I know how the backslide started: gained 1 pound then another and another by constantly overeating and continuously having worse and worse cravings and bingeing and letting my weight spiral over a period of 2-3 years - not about to go that route again. Will try to stop with all the chocolate as well as try to eat more around but 2000 than above that in calories :) it's def being worked on :)

_______________________________________________________

plans are good for today. looking forward to a relaxed but also productive 3-day weekend. No big social plans aside from maybe walking over to Ricky's apt and watching a movie with him.  It's a really busy Winter with the class and keeping up my routine exercise so I am trying do what I want to do most but not overdo right now! 

I haven't been eating well - eating too high calories for about 2-3 weeks and the scale is starting to show it.  So, as usual, when i told myself that today i'd be really good - i've already indulged in the Lindt white chocolate truffles i have - i'm stopping buying chocolate for awhile now. Taking a break and not allowing it for myself at work bc it's gotten out of hand...

I have been productive this morning already cooked up some chicken / mozzerella sausages that were in my fridge - so i do not need to buy any proteins until Monday before the short work week (we are off Monday for President's Day!).

In terms of being productive, my plan is for two good workouts (today and Monday) and a bonus today of seeing where i am at on the Court Officer Beep Test. I'll set it up outside (just need a couple cones set up to mark 65 feet) and you run back and forth and must always get to the 65' before the "beep." It seems a challenging test and i just want to see where i am at right now...After lunch, i'll go also to the gym.

It's a little chilly out, but i don't plan to be outside too long - just to see where i am at with the beep test...I will really be trying to to a little cardio each weekend - whether it be jogging or walking or what have you.

With it being a busy Winter, I'm not looking to overdo this nice 3-day weekend.

Progress as of today: 5 lbs lost so far, only 0 lbs to go!

Actually the beep test sounds like fun!!! I could never do it...but wish I could watch you!

the gym isn't 65' so i couldn't practice it...i hope to practice tomorrow since it should be warmer, as long as there's no snow on the ground...

"Scale is starting to show it" -- ???

I find with certain foods, I can't have them in the house or I will eat them. Maybe not all at once -- getting MUCH better at that (yay!!) -- but still, if it's something I don't need to be eating on a regular basis, then once they're gone, I don't re-stock.

So lucky that you have Monday off. My office is open, and I have to be there, because 2 of the 5 assistants are on vacation. Plus we have a busy day of appointments, so I'll be doing the meet & greet.

I hope that you get a chance to run the Beep test. I'd be interested to hear your results :-)

i ended up not doing the beep test bc i sorta didn't realize that the gym is in no way 65' in the room i was using...pretty much leaves me outside only to do the test...i'll head into it in Springtime...for now i'm getting very sore from my gym leg workouts, so i'll just do them and in Spring start the outdoors jogging once again :)

i think i'm letting my mind get a hold of my body - starting to think to negatively at work all day...and it's affecting me at home - bingeing lately...so i'm going to work on it... :)
