Weight: 115.0

Happy Weekend. Upon waking, i did start thinking about my boss and work since so much has been going on. but i'm relaxing - just like i did after work yesterday. I'm now slowly getting into jogging. I am def a beginner and cannot do much right now.  I've settled on just doing 1.5 miles of jog / walk 1x per week or so for now, for THIS month. I may add another day here or there, but i don't think so. Yes, just 1x per week and the rest of the time will be spent walking when i can. Life is VERY busy & it's simply hard to fit things in - especially when my boss doesn't know my own hours and now wants to make me work late (not happening, i am sorry, i'm not going to all of a sudden work longer).

I jogged yesterday so i don't want to do it today...seems i have little plans for today - just gym in the evening. i don't want to walk more, as my legs need rest because tomorrow will involve some walking...i will do the laundry that i planned to do tomorrow today instead.gonna relax and read now.

tomorrow will be a fun day in NYC at a comedy "Drag Brunch."  My dad was pissed i'm going because he thought all the audience would be drag - oh no!!! it's an entertainment thing, i bought it on Groupon!

_____________________________________________

Breakfast:  banana and honey 150, oatmeal 150, protein powder 100, almond milk 30, peanut butter 200: 600 approx.

snack bar 230

lunch: fried wheat gluten 450?, rice 100, chips 150 700. (not in a veggie mood. fine to splurge sometimes on somthing different - it was all food i picked up last night so that i would have food specifically at home today!)

snack: strawberries 100

dinner :protein cookie but my leg is throbbing from needing potassium so then a banana in a pumpernickel wrap. 550.

gym tonight.

total cal is pretty good for a whole day at home and just the gym in the eve: 2200. GOOD.

Progress as of today: 2 lbs lost so far, only 3 lbs to go!

Donkey on 04/29/2017:
Good for you for starting your running program. "Slow" will be your key to progressing. It's a building process, so I applaud you for resting. Remember: if you are increasing time/distance/speed/incline, to do so one at a time. So if you are going longer, do not go faster. I encourage you to approach running with a Zen-state of mind. :-)

I have been reading your comments about work. I was going to caution you to be careful, but after reading what your dad told you, and considering you are union, then you will probably be OK. Can't help though feeling like you have a target on your back for your boss. WTH???

You know, some people just need a scapegoat in their lives to make themselves happy. I work with someone like that. Must be very careful around them...

Weight: 115.0

Weekly Average: 2015 per day = VERY GOOD.

ACV drink in AM no cal...

Low Protein breakfast as lately i do not want cream cheese and salami on wraps, i just can't take it - honey 50 and pb 200 on a wrap 100. 350. coffee. 50.

Snack:  cookie 120

Lunch: healthy: other nicer boss ordered lunch for all. shrimp and veg 200? sauce 150? tons of brown rice maybe double serving 400? 750. was worth it.

Snack: 100, 120

Dinner: 800 tops.

2350 (didn't calculate calories well enough and things got screwed up.) still a decent average.

I made it to the park and i walked / JOGGED 1.5 miles. On purpose, as i get into jogging, less will be more: meaning, to stay away from injury and everything, even 1.5mi walk / jog is better than doing 2 miles. I don't need to do a lot, just more than i used to. That's it.  I will not force any injury upon myself like i did last time. This is my chance to give myself a chance to jog...slowly.

_________________________________

This week still involved getting back to an even keel with my administration. It's been a long 1.5 months for me.  I'm glad it's the end of another slightly rocky week.  Good thing is I got 1.5hrs OT for last night.  Bad thing is I learned TODAY that i'm SALARY and not HOURLY. first time knowing this in 6.5 years here...stupid administration. I used to make mad OT $.

When i got a raise, i had no clue it was for SALARY a month ago. Don't you think boss should have told me / reminded me that the raise was for SALARY and not HOURLY? unreal. I swear i couldn't make this stuff up if I tried.I swear, i always thought i was HOURLY. AND USED TO BE. 

And this week i did quite a bit of OT - who would have guessed that I cannot even earn compensation on all of it? (i was compensated for my extra 1.5hrs last night - that i stayed because the pregnant lady initially doing the work couldn't stay. and i'm QUITE POSITIVE this will be the case going forward that i will stay to do HER WORK. and because she's pregnant (like men think we should be in our lives), she'll be treated NICER and i will get the brunt.  I am learning so much now, so much!).  It's crazy sometimes.

I can hear my boss now whispering with his secretary, the pregnant one, she's saying bad things about another one of my coworkers. the environment here is absolutely of hate. I hate my boss and he's a piece of work...**** really.

Progress as of today: 2 lbs lost so far, only 3 lbs to go!

Sorry there is craziness at work! Remember to take care of yourself and remain on your path to the NYPD. Don't let their backbiting and craziness rub off on you.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 04/28/2017:
Thank you so much...yes....your advice is the only way to go at this point :-D

I am glad i am not "white trash" (sorry if what i write sounds rude)...but i value my upbringing from my parents when i was a child and i'm so very glad that i have this current opportunity to change my life to how I want it.

I have learned so much, at 34 now, I have a lot to bring with me to the academy. A ton of great skills.

Horn_of_plenty on 04/28/2017:
my dad told me not to worry about this boss....to just do my work and that's it.

My boss of 6 months is such an idiot that he thought my schedule was 8am-5pm when it's 8am-4:30pm. Moron of a man who doesn't know how to communicate effectively.  I will def need to speak to him today briefly to remind him that if he needs any clarification over anything involving me, that he should def feel good about bringing it up with me before speaking to any other administration or bosses (like he did the other day) because the best person he can go to involving anything i do, is me personally.  

Why is my boss so darn retarded. I can't take his stupidity and lack of administration skills. 6 months he didn't know my schedule! IDIOT. Because if i ever took a break, i'd stay as much time as i took and stay late.  I am not a person who breaks rules or who isn't trustworthy or honest. But now, i'm eager ot get out of here ASAP for the rest of my time here - 30 min lunch and leave at 4:30pm on the dot because i cannot fathom giving this SOB boss any extra of my VALUABLE, personal time.

Other people do take time - like his own secretary who will go for a walk with her other secretary friend (both also pregnant and both first pregnancies were before marriage) reason i bring that up is because my boss is SO DARN STRICT with me - but whatever his secretary does is ALWAYS OK even when she tells him that her pregnancy was an accident!? I imagine and KNOW that if i ever told him this - this same moron boss would tell my other boss Russ that something is wrong with me for being pregnant. It's like I do everything wrong and she does everything right simply bc my name is Jackie and her's is Shannon.

I hate my boss!

Update at 11am: just walked over and spoke to HR, glad i did - my boss already further complained about me yesterday!!!!! In regards to the manner in which I "aggresively" told him i was taking lunch!? WTH. I HATE MY BOSS.  i have to say, this boss SUX.

I woke up early like over an hour early around quarter to 5am, cooked beef burgers before the meat spoiled bc the sell by date was for today. Good idea. Ate one even for breakfast in a wrap! And for lunch I had another.  Now i have 3 left...they are tasty :-D My first time actually cooking beef burgers (yes, i'm slow like that...glad i did it). I'm learning to cook and doing far better. Proud of myself!!!  

It saves me money and I eat healthier by cooking more meat at home and not eating so much tofu and veg products that aren't necessarily healthier than eating meat.  

All those soy products are processed. But i do have some tofu at home, lol, that i should def get around to eating before it spoils!

Plan for tonight is 2 things: reading & early to bed. I'm tired, but happy. It's been an uneventful week which is GREAT!

__________________________________________

Early: ACV drink no cal. and diet tonic.

Breakfast: wrap with burger 300, coffee 50 (Had cravings for LOW sugar and MEAT since yesterday i ate tons of carbs in the evening.)

Snack:almonds 200 healthy. and a few candies.

Lunch: another of my tasty 90% lean burgers 200 at most (so proud of myself for cooking them this AM when i woke up early and wanted to be productive and not cook meat tonight lol!), matzah 100, tons of veggies in thai ginger sauce 300 most. 600 and healthy.

snack small cake 100

Dinner: egg 70, some pumpkin 50, greens and potatoes 150?, spinach 50, ice cream 150: 500

1750 :-)

avg cal: 2050 5day!  good!!!

Tofu spoils? Good to know. I've had some that I wanted to make tofu bacon with. Never did...yet.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 04/26/2017:
Yes, def go according to the package. the expiration for me is usually a long time - like at least 2 weeks and sometimes more like 1 month the date goes until from the time i get it.

When it's spoiled you'll know...it gets slimy and partially smelly. but instead of just being firm (not talking about silken tofu which is naturally like silk feeling as it tastes gross!) ...but the firm tofu i get...if it gets slimy on the perimeter, it's spoiled. Only happened to me a couple times bc the expiration date usually isn't over by the time i eat it. BUT...i even sometimes eat it a few days after the exp date. it's similar to like yogurt in expiration properties LOL.


Donkey on 04/26/2017:
Well done, HoP! I had to shake my head at all your work drama. I'm so sorry. A bad boss makes it really difficult. Hang in there - you've got the right approach.

Horn_of_plenty on 04/27/2017:
My stupid boss thought my hours (for the entire 6 months he's been the boss) were from 8-5 when they are really 8-4:30! He must of thought i was ALWAYS taking time from company when i'd leave before 5 like at 4:45pm. Such a stupid man. He never thought to speak to me about it.

This guy doesn't communicate. And the one time he did, he went above me to the other boss and HR (who deals with conflict). Thanks Donkey. I actually had to speak up yesterday and make sure my boss knew my hours yesterday. i am still not sure it's clear. i will speak to him again today, because i will let him know everything on my mind.

Horn_of_plenty on 04/27/2017:
I will specifically say to my boss this AM, if you have anything you feel you need to discuss with me, I'd prefer it be with ME first before you take it to Russ or anyone else.

Horn_of_plenty on 04/27/2017:
I want my boss to be stressed and not be able to do the job. I want him to fail. Because that's what he did to me. When i was having troubles this past month, he decided to lay it on me also.

1800, perfect.  

Today was pretty good. My annoying boss played some trick on me, not writing it out, so i left late.

But then my good looking, hot, MARRIED so no i'm not hitting on the dude...he walked into the gym next door and saw me working out! That made my night! But then he left? and he was in gym clothes....i don't know...was he there just to change and say hi and then leave. i'm sure tomorrow he'll say hi or smile that we saw each other? i feel like i almost imagined it...it was FAST. and he left?

i swear this happened. and i'm glad it did bc i doubt it'll ever happen again...because in one month i'll be done at the gym next door and already paid to join the one year old gym, BLINK, which is two blocks from work, instead of next door, but newer and better. I'm sick of the crap place next door to work. I'll still leave my car safe in the work parking lot, but get to walk a couple blocks to the gym and back...good for my health!

 Long Story Short:

My New boss is a piece of work.  He's been my boss since October...and i can't trust him for the world.  You'd think someone his age, 60, would have some heart and be kind somewhat. He is not. Like a devil disguised in nice clothes. A fat devil is what he is. (sorry no offense ot anyone here, but he thinks he's perfect and he's just not!) Oh well. 

I'll make this work.  I'll play his rules. Let his bull**** and inequality that he allows fly back in his face when he least expects it. He's racist, hates me as a Jew and is out ot get for no reason.

My boss hated my old boss who is also his boss. My new boss now likes the people old boss hated and tables are turned so that i'm not benefited in the least anymore.

Lots of changes overall in my entire company like the owner was even fired from his own company after he sold it.

There's a lot of revenge and butting heads. 

My boss is stressed, and does't seem to like me. He's Italian, typical from an area where it's very Italian in Queens. I am not rasist, never thought i had a problem with him, till now...till I see how he favors this other girl over me...sorta like my boss used to favor me over her....it's a sick world. And upper managment wins = my boss wins = I'll deal, unless i want to leave, which i will....in December.

Progress as of today: 2 lbs lost so far, only 3 lbs to go!

jabockov on 04/24/2017:
I'm so sorry your boss is difficult to work with. I retired early because of a similar situation. I just got too old to handle all the c**p. Work should be a joy, something you look forward to. Can you transfer to another department, or is it time for a job or career change?

Horn_Of_Plenty on 04/24/2017:
I am changing my career in January to join the police force. I will enter the Janaury 2018 Academy :-)

I just need to hold out till mid December here! So yes, i am thinking the same exact way as you - Get out! :-D

Also police job is more reliable and better pay after only 3 years i'll be at the same pay scale i have now...and then I will almost double it in 6 years as an officer.

Thank you for your kindness. And your insights.


innerpeace on 04/24/2017:
That sucks! Hostile work environment is no fun. Hold your tongue and look out for number 1. It's obvious no one else will.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 04/24/2017:
look out for #1 you mean me right? right....i will be good. no choice. it's funny he showed me this AM that Shannon, his secretary, can talk as much as she wants. she can curse, he'll let her.


innerpeace on 04/25/2017:
Yes you are #1. I hate people who blatantly use double standards.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 04/25/2017:
I am unsure why he's taking such a chance with it. Then again, it doesn't matter. I am going by his rules, leaving on time. I will not just show him that he's got me upset...i will move above it...

my father is in the industry, not company, and if anything, i have someone to reach out to - although i definitely hope i don't have to at all. i don't want problems, but did make my father aware of this situation...and of course that led to a bit of an upsetting morning which ended up improving. of course my dad doesn't want to deal with controversy or know that i'm involved in office upsets. so it was hard to speak with him about this. i hope it's over.

Monday Morning Update: i did wake up in middle of the night but was able to fight a craving to get up and nosh....and instead i WAS able to get back to bed. I didn't take a sleeping pill, but did sleep pretty well anyways.  This is good.

I'll be working on my sleeping this year.  And working on taking less sleeping pills.

I need to have my life under control (as healthy and low stress as i can manage) before i leave this job.

I do feel positive about it.  I do feel I am able to overcome and accomplish this, despite recent setbacks at work involving huge miscommunications.

Sunday:

Breakfast: dried fruit 80, almond milk 30, fiber one 180, cinnamon. total: 300, good.

__________________________________________________

Bigger plan for today is to meet my dad at my grandma's place and visit her from 9:30-11:30am. Then have lunch back with my mom and dad (mom doesn't go to visit grandma).  After lunch, i'm driving straight to the gym (which reminds me I must bring my gym clothes!).  After gym, back home. Maybe cook burgers (i bought the meat already).  Maybe wash my sheets, but i don't think so....i may wait till Monday after work. Either way, I think i'll shower now....

Life will be very busy. I've made the decision, which i want for me right now, to not take any days off this year. To leave work in mid-December instead. I may not even wait till mid-December. But I'll try. then I'll have a month lapse between when i leave work and time to rest up / prepare for NYPD academy.

Last night in bed, I pulled my fb account off for awhile.  I disabled it bc i am having too much hassel at work and all around. I've decided to take some time away from the world, especially fb.

Today i have nice plans to go to a new park with a friend who lives a few blocks from me. Older guy, no intentions to date, but a friend. We going to park and lunch after.  Always nice to get a walk in with a friend at a new park here.

WTH is going on at work??? I'm so sorry... Lay low and do your work and go home. Thank goodness you have the gym and your goals.

Enjoy the park today - I'm not sure the weather will cooperate by you? (Was watching the Today Show while working out.)

Horn_of_plenty on 04/22/2017:
it rained but drizzled only. we got lucky as it rained more when we were back in car driving to lunch! it was like a nice hour walk only some scattered drizzles.

yes, thank goodness for gym and goals.

work is lousy, that's all. it's high stress with loads of change for everyone. and somehow whenever i open my mouth even if it's for GOOD, i get blamed for what comes out. so....my mouth is sealed.

and it just goes to show that everyone has good and bad in their hearts...but some people prefer to use the bad side over the good. it's life. not fair or equal.

Horn_of_plenty on 04/22/2017:
my friend couldn't believe the **** i've been dealt at work and did tell me it sounded quite harsh. but that's life. usually the boss wins.

Happy Friday - I'd like to say, for once, after a full week, I feel quite EXCELLENT! I have this....NYPD January 2018 here I come!  I have no more time to delay it, so it's mandatory for me to enter in January. Will learn to run this late Spring / Summer.

Unbelievabe afternoon crap edit: This Friday ended in Drama at work again. with me involved. I'll write another time, it's too stupid to share. I have already made the choice to not talk to anyone, anymore (within reason). I will now have many days eat at my desk as well to have lunch here and not cafeteria. to leave at 4:30pm on the dot. I arrived here early, 15 min early at 7:45am. I will leave at 4:30 - there shouldn't be an issue here.

Can't wait until you go to NYPD. Is it residential training? will you leave your apartment vacant while you training? I know you will be busy but will you still check in with DD?

Horn_of_plenty on 04/23/2017:
It is not residential training to my knowledge. I'm glad it's not. Def not as I never heard that...so that means normal living at my apt.

I plan to YES check in with DD because i do like this online community a lot (and have been part of it for over 10 years now!).

This is for January, NYPD.


innerpeace on 04/21/2017:
The girl said she wanted to start the couch to 5K with me, I'm excited for this, but she doesn't like to sweat or get dirty so not sure how long it will last.

Horn_of_plenty on 04/23/2017:
That is really healthy for her. Try extra slow with her, if she needs another week of each week before moving onto the next challenge with that program. ...

This can change her life. She can lose a lot of weight if she gets into activity. It's really healthy.

Maybe tell her it's healthy to be active...good for the mind and body. It will make her feel more powerful...stronger.

but be careful talking about weightloss as it can cause an eating disorder in young girls....that's my take.


mylilsista on 04/22/2017:
Sorry you had another negative experience at work. It sounds like detaching is a good idea--at least for now.

You sound SO motivated to join the NYPD. January will be here before you know it!

Have an awesome weekend dear :)

Horn_of_plenty on 04/23/2017:
Thank you so much, lil sista. It means a lot to have your support when at work i don't & my close friends are few.

I'll be doing this on my own...this journey to NYPD. THANK YOU for your support!

And yes, detaching at work. Just coming in on time & leaving on time.

Weight: 115.0

2010 6-day average, good! 

Home: ACV drink, honey, banana 150

Breakfast: coffee with milk and splenda 30 (had half), energy drink 0, wrap 100 with pb 150 (and some of that banana) 250. 300.

Snack: egg. 50.

Lunch: extremely healthy: white meat turkey burger 120, avocado half 150, broccoli slaw mix 100, other veg sauteed 100, matzah 120: 600 tops.

1100 approx

Snack before gym: granola bar 100, caffeine (oh and candies thru morning) 50 more.

and had one more granola bar at 3pm 100

1350...

after gym: protein cookie 350 and then back at home after a shower i had a craving for more carbs so i filled that craving - wrap 120 with a banana 120 and some honey 30. total here 650 tops.

total today is good: 2000. seems my body is i think able to burn around 2000 daily, i think, maybe, to maintain. we'll see.

Gym workout was one of my best. I wore only a sorts bra at the gym that i usally don't do that at - but it was worth it - i worked out harder. I may continue with that method.  It seems that nobody really gets offended....and that i am still respected....and i like to workout this way....i may.

 

Progress as of today: 2 lbs lost so far, only 3 lbs to go!

I am, thank you Puddy F. I will comment later on your entry. Seems that everything is stressing everyone at work - boss took it out on me...things seem better for now.

Sounds like a great work out! Hope you have a wonderful weekend! :)

Planning on it!

PS - I was supposed to give a ride to a coworker after work today (FRIDAY!) to get glasses for him as a favor but he DOES have multiple days off he can take now to do it himself and he does drive and/or take busses.

I can't do the favor for him - decided to tell him i have to visit my parents...

I'm learning to limit what I say YES to. :-D

I need to take care of me after work today...not be running around getting glasses for a coworker / friend - when they are fully capable to do it themselves....

It's another "errand" that i don't need to do...it's not even for me!
