woke up sooo late today around 10:30am.  i have been going to sleep later, is why. i'd rather go to sleep earlier, so it won't be too much of a challenge when i go back to work! anyways, enough about that!

Happy Monday to everyone despite the politcal / health unrest! 

began with coffee and gummies LOL (i've already eaten my way thru 2/3 of my entire gummy order of MANY, many gummies - and that's good since they are not veery beneficial to my health it'll be good to MOVE PAST THEM for awhile! 

gummies and larger coffee 250.

1pm lunch: remainder of the turkey bacon 100, wrap 100, fried egg 100, wine/kombucha mix 150...450.

3:30 kombucha and 2 last kiwis 150

4:45 found a protein bar 200

7:15pm dinner cooked cabbage 100, meatballs with a very little bit of cheese (frozen and friend had cooked it for me - I was saving it for a good time to reheat!) 350, leftover kombucha 50. 500-550? Wine/kombucha 150

Gummies 100

. And couple chocs at middle of night 100


did a ton of reading a novel today :)






I'm happy to say yesterday i used my stepper, bike and upper body weights. Planning to walk outside in beautiful spring weather (64F) today with sunny skies.

I will be going thru my legal vocab words 2x today of the half i've studied.  

I will read for 20-30 mintues from my Proj Managment textbook.

I will read a book i have on my phone thru free amazon prime books - the book i had to return to the NY Public Library when i thought we were moving offices (we never did since it was the week this pademic was getting real in mid March). so i'm glad this book was on Amazon prime, i added the kindle app to my phone, and that i can continue to read it for FREE! it's amazing i can keep reading right where i left off. i started reading it yesterday or the day before and really enjoying the book. it's called Far From the Maddening Crowd. a very old classic that was turned into a movie as well.

Progress as of today: -3 lbs lost so far, only 1 lbs to go!

bearcountrygg on 04/06/2020:
I am sure leaning towards junk food around here too.....bars, jelly beans,,,animal crackers......I'm careful to at least eat one well rounded meal a day though.....must be the stress and boredom.

Horn_of_plenty on 04/06/2020:
Same here- trying to get some nutrition daily :-)

Donkey on 04/07/2020:
You made good use of your day! A nice mix of exercise and sedentary activities. Isn't it nice to have a good book to read???

Horn_of_plenty on 04/07/2020:
So thankful for a good book :-)

edit - not the best eating lately...and going to bed hungry because i keep staying up too late...good to stay more busy, i guess, with more plans and then try to keep sleep a normal schedule.

much - later stationary bike with TV show 60 mintues!.

3pm chocolate 100, wine 150, wine 100 mixed with seltzer and stevia all during workout trying to remain at a higher carb intake sorta on purpose now ..also some ice cream light 150 cal.

6:30 couple chocolates 100

dinner salad and dressing 200, tofu 50, chips 300. 550. Gummies 150



i have ordered a food service where I will cook the meals at home starting end of next week as a trial ! The deal was great - free ! Just pay the 9.99 shipping. A friend gave me a code. So I will be eating well - chicken/pork/salmon starting end of next week, thank gosh! It's called Martha and Marley Spoon.   I will only be using the trial as the service usually costs I think around $70 a week for 3 meals with 2 servings each which is actually pretty good as I am thinking about it! Maybe I will continue during this isolation time, we will see. Perhaps I'll do it for two weeks.

Progress as of today: -3 lbs lost so far, only 1 lbs to go!

bearcountrygg on 04/05/2020:
I've used Hello Fresh and really liked it....there is also Blue Apron...and many more...there are a lot of codes out there...one good way to get codes is to go to youtube and look for one of these companies names in the title...and in the video..they usually will give their code......( look for the most recent vids.)

Horn_of_plenty on 04/05/2020:
Yes I’ve heard of those :)

bearcountrygg on 04/05/2020:
I hadn't heard of Martha and Marley spoon...and so I looked it up...It's a Martha Stewart product.....interesting.

Horn_of_plenty on 04/05/2020:
Yeah I hadn’t heard of this service I am using the trial for either until this week ;) the meals seem nice. I got to choose what meats and everything I wanted - good to do now I figured especially for 6 total meals for one person for 9.99!

Donkey on 04/05/2020:
I've never tried one of these services, but if I were single, I might. My husband eats too much to be satisfied with the portions that they give you.

Horn_of_plenty on 04/06/2020:
yes, those are the reasons i'm trying...and it will help my further my cooking skills with meats / fish which i def don't do enough on my own :) plus, the crazy low price of 9.99 for everything has me thinking it'd also be a good deal to actually buy a full week in a couple weeks for more cooking practice as you KNOW my meals could use some more nutritional benefits! :-)

Horn_of_plenty on 04/06/2020:
also, i keep my protein portions of meat/salmon on the small side, so this is a good plan for me. i totally understand that it wouldn't work for you...and anyways, after this, if i like something, i can always buy it myself at the supermarket and make these things again :)

did my leg exercises in late morning, then took a shower at noon.

Hour walk - will go out for a walk today (in a local cemetary for a change of pace - yes, really) with Ricky. as long as it's open, we know it won't be crowded with people!

yesterday i stayed home as the weather was rainy and a good day to stay inside :)

i still haven't read chapter 4 or even started it. i think i'm taking a full break from the reading until monday of the textbook...i think tonight i'll push myself to read a web downloaded version of a book i had to return to the library that i was able to get off Amazon Prime, for free :)...i currently will use my phone as the way to read it as opposed to my laptop, would rather read my phone for now...i can adjust the font for reading :)

 honestly, with the textbook, maybe i'll just read it on weekdays. i'm sorta sick of the textbook for now.


Progress as of today: -3 lbs lost so far, only 1 lbs to go!

Donkey on 04/04/2020:
That's OK if you don't feel like having what we would normally define as "lunch". I've had "dessert" in the middle of the day and it holds me until the next meal. On the worst day of my life, I went out to dinner and had a huge peanut butter/fudge brownie thing. It was as big as my hand.

I love walking in cemeteries! It's so interesting to see the different names - especially the "Old School" names that you don't hear any more: Edna, Myrtle, etc. There is a cemetery near my work. A lot of the names are German! And then there are familiar names that I think, "Oh is that his/her ancestor?" or "Is that where (street name) got its name from?" I also look at it as a way to honor those who came before us, and most likely had it harder than we do now.

I completely agree to hold the textbook reading to weekdays. That's more work-related, and weekends should be for you.

Horn_of_plenty on 04/04/2020:
We enjoyed the cemetery. It’s a nice size and we easily spent an hour enjoying the weather and the walk. :-) there were several people there but not that it was crowded by any means :) it was a good way to get out and this one was a catholic cemetery only a few blocks from my apt....but we drove bc the entrance side is rather far to walk to! I just live near a back corner ....., not the entrance :)

Yes...Those are the one's I was thinking of.

Horn_of_plenty on 04/03/2020:
wayyyy too addicted. already finished the other box of sour yellows! i used to have TWO boxes like a few days ago!

Donkey on 04/04/2020:
Way to go on the bike ride! how was the pizza? I wish you had taken a picture of it, but that's OK.

I thought of you last night, just couldn't get myself to do weights, other than my push-ups. I'll talk more about that in my own entry. But I'm glad someone around here is doing weights! (lol)

Oh those gummies --- I LOVE them!!!

Horn_of_plenty on 04/04/2020:
you've tried the gummies?

don't feel bad about not doing weights one day, just pick it up when you are able to soon!

the cauliflower crust was eaten as is...no sauce or cheese...it's a crust that is such a mix of ingredients that it was just satisfying enough to eat alone because it has a lot of seasonings...i'll take a picture next time i eat one...i've had them in my fridge for way over a year when i ordered a bulk of them at once..and i have 2 crusts left :)

Horn_of_plenty on 04/04/2020:
and yes, i need to use the bike MORE. that one was such a great purchase, for leg strength even if i don't push hard or get sweaty....i need to do more (often) on the bike :)

Donkey on 04/04/2020:
^ Oh I misunderstood about the pizza - now I get that you had only the crust. Nothing wrong with that - kind of akin to having naan or pita.

I haven't tried those specific gummies - I meant to say that I love ALL gummies, which is why I don't keep them in the house. I don't care for jello though.

Horn_of_plenty on 04/04/2020:
the crust is made with cauliflower/light amount of cheese/eggs so it's much more satisfying than naan or a pizza...it does have some protein and fat :) that is why i had it for dinner, it is big and contains about 300-400 calories i believe. i'll send you a link to what i ate.

skipped weights - to do after breakfast tomorrow - I was about to do it and then I forgot I had the therapy appt over internet until she called me at 8pm to start lol.


On Amazon, i'm not ordering any extra right now  other than things i was subscribed for,  but i ordered a LOT of these gummies, along with pet food and razors since i was running low.

went out for a walk, around 1.5 hours today. slow, but steady :)

did bike for a half hour + a little more today

i signed up for unemployment today (took around an hour to complete it online)

even though they are saying not to leave the house, i am going for walks. hardly anyone was out and then R called me saying he was nervous something was going to happen to me which scared me lol...i was happy to come home after this long walk!

i'm going to study some court / legal vocabulary and read also today.

this morning i listened to the meditation app, finishing the Paris story that i fell asleep listening to last night!

Hi HoP! Glad to see you are still active here! Also, active physically at home too - you're doing great with all those walks you've been taking. Love seeing your pics!

Stay safe and healthy!

Horn_of_plenty on 03/31/2020:
they are saying to stay home, but, i just cannot totally do that...i'm continuing the walks around the community for now..

:-D ...i only go to the supermarket 1x per week or less.

bearcountrygg on 03/31/2020:
Are those the gummies that are in the red/yellow/blue packages?

Horn_of_plenty on 04/02/2020:
Yes ! They are the Smart Sweets and I have an affinity for them as of late ! I ordered a ton and they help me get thru the day, so I’m enjoying them lately especially the sour types which have a TON of flavor.

Donkey on 04/01/2020:
Sounds like a lovely day to me! I still walk at lunchtime. Anyone I meet either crosses the street or steps away from the sidewalk. I'm ok with that.

I hope you had a productive therapy session :)

Horn_of_plenty on 04/02/2020:
Therapy was def pretty good.

It’s good to still get out and walk, at least for me it is. I know they are saying to stay indoors but If I limit myself too much I feel I won’t be able to go back to what I used to do !....like my walks. May take a break from them today though....we’ll see!

so far, i've done some reading of a local #3 newspaper sent back in September that i decided to read throroughly before throwing out :) DONE!

spoke on phone briefly to R and Family. Will talk on phone much later to C, i may either foam foal my legs or ride bike while on phone with her (probably the former!)

1:30pm or so - going out for a walk with R before the weather changes to some rain in the later afternoon. - walked ONE HOUR. DONE!

home, will have snack, then reading of the textbook chapter 4 material (30 minutes of reading)..wine?!...

also go online to take a look at where's i've walked on google maps and/or research nearby safe parks....(30 minutes of this) pretty much done lol ...got distracted while on maps ..done.

lastly, study some court terminoly/vocab words (i previously made flash cards during another time this year when i had more free time!) - something i will start today...this is a lot to do at once, but i figure i'll be on the couch a bit after the walk..(up to an hour of this)

thinking to do a leg workout in the evening :)..prob not?

maybe call Christine around 5pm/6pm/7pm. talked earlier - done !

i love honey comb. I would always eat it as a snack, no milk.

Horn_of_plenty on 03/30/2020:
it is very nice and sweet but NOT too sweet! i do love it yea!

i am thinking that next time i go to supermarket, to indulge in another cereal :)

i think i'll be home for at least 1 more full month possibly if not more.

bearcountrygg on 03/30/2020:
I'm loving the lightness of cereal......and just discovered how good honey was on it...never tried that before.

Horn_of_plenty on 03/30/2020:
yeah i totally want to buy another box of cereal...not sure what!?

Donkey on 03/31/2020:
My eating has suffered greatly lately. Like yourself, in this entry, I did ok until the evening.

I still remain quite impressed with all that you accomplish in your day! Good idea to grab the walk when you could!

Horn_of_plenty on 03/31/2020:
with the too-early dinner and eating too much, i set myself up to a downfall last night, but, still it wasn't as bad as past eating episodes. i am glad i am more focused and have more healthy options at home too :) wishing you a good day today! let's do better :)

also, it could have been TOM which i got yesterday which does tend to increase my cravings!

- after weights, i will read some of my textbook, chapter 4...i will prob hold my guinea pigs while studying :) DID NOT READ TEXTBOOK

- clean off a few spots in bathroom that got hair dye on them that i recently noticed DONE

- 5 minutes stepper DONE (12 MIN)

- half hour stationary bike DONE !

- do some research on very local parks in area; do some research on areas i've walked and see them on googlemaps so it makes more sense to me which way i walked visually - get to know the neighborhood better (online). i didn't grow up here, so i don't know this neighborhood that well although i've lived here since March 2013 - 7 years! :) MIGHT NOT HAPPEN TODAY.

- go thru Front closet of jackets / clothes and see if there's anything i want to donate to make room in the closet which i find always too snug with so many jackets / coats (from my mom many of them) that i don't wear, ever....looked briefly - having a hard time throwing anything out..will need to make myself throw out some stuff ...DONE?

- Did a little more organizing around apt. :-D DONE!


- time of the month is coming very soon, so i'm ok being home...

Donkey on 03/29/2020:
I never thought about a communal laundry room, but you're absolutely right! My first apartment had one, and yes, it's a shared space. Good point!

The nice thing about being off is that what doesn't get done today can be added to tomorrow's list.

I found myself eating instead of getting things done, too. I can't say much more without getting into my own entry today, so I'll save the story for that.

Horn_of_plenty on 03/30/2020:
sorry you had trouble yesterday with staying on track and out of the kitchen. i feel for you! i know the feeling of being there and done that thousands of times!

also, i am mostly relaxed at home all week so i have been now home awhile, whereas you were stressed, working and just had the day off...so i can totally understand and see why you did / reacted how you did yesterday.

you have the strength within yourself. and do not punish yourself for when you go off track because you are also very good at getting back on :-)

you handle a lot and you handle it well! keep on, J donk! my life is quite simple right now. i just have to take care of myself and stay in touch with family and friends. mothers, caretakers....they must be far more stressed right now than i. and you also have the responsibility of caretaking...keep on with your spirit and energy !!!!

bearcountrygg on 03/29/2020:
You got a lot done...GO YOU!!!

Horn_of_plenty on 03/30/2020:

went online to file unemployment but it says i have to wait till next week and probably my day is Tuesday as it goes by alphabetical order..so i have to wait till the weekend is over to file.

dropped weights off at coworker's house today because i have extra (didn't go close to her or anything and didn't go in her house). that was my special thing i did today.

really took the day to relax. even fell asleep somehow after lunch despite all the sleeping i do at night!

cleaned a lot today. went thru papers, tried to make things neater in my closets. so far i have 2 big bags of clothes to give away and will have more by the end of next week or this weekend :)

i cleaned also a desk, lots of papers were shredded with my hands and thrown out.

things are a bit cleaner although they can get even cleaner for sure still! 

i am up to a great start with the cleaning and throwing out of unnecessary clothing, etc.

took a rest day with ALL exercise.

talked on the phone a lot today - to couple friends, parents. all is ok right now.

President Trump may instate a 14 day quarrantine for NY, NJ, CT...we shall see what happens. since we are the epicenter.

tomorrow after breakfast: planning to do weights exercises first including pushups and abs.

do some reading of the new chapter of the textbook that i pulled out - chapter 4.

You're probably too young to remember this commercial, but I remember, as a kid, watching Saturday morning cartoons, and the Honeycombs Cereal commercial would come on: "Honeycombs big, yeah yeah yeah! They're not small, no no no!" LOL - I was singing that to myself all day yesterday after I read your breakfast entry.

I found this link to the old commercial - just so you know I'm not making this stuff up: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QP2iT0ub8lc

Horn_of_plenty on 03/29/2020:
yes, i think i am too young with the honeycomb, but, i'm going to watch it today - the link you sent and get back to you about it on your entry :)

AHHHHH cereal.....I had festive Christmas red and green rice krispies today......love the added nutrition.

Horn_of_plenty on 03/29/2020:
this honeycomb i checked the nutrition facts and compared to cheerios and other top brands, they don't add as much nutirition to honeycomb, but there's some :) and that is good yes!!!!!

rice krispies are another light and tasty cereal!..i'm def into the sweet stuff lately! good change of pace when home :)

You were laid off? I guess I must have missed that post. Sorry, I hope you will be OK. You do a great job planning your days and staying busy.

Horn_of_plenty on 03/28/2020:
yes, a "temporary" layoff with plans for rehire but we don't know the exact date of rehire.

thanks, i try to stay busy although some of the things you do i sadly don't have patience for like the puzzle, nice work!

I love cereal!

Horn_of_plenty on 03/28/2020:
ohhhhh me too! so sweet and somewhat crunchy still with the milk. amazing!

and this one isn't too sugary either! :)

GREAT change of pace this week!

Good luck with the unemployment website. Earlier this week, in Illinois, the website crashed because so many people were applying. (It's back up and running though.)

I'm so impressed by all that you have been able to accomplish during your time off, especially with cleaning, reorganizing, decluttering -- I never seem to get to that point.

Horn_of_plenty on 03/28/2020:
thanks Donkey! if you were home, i am SURE you'd be doing some cleaning too!

still everything appears to be messy...i have so much "crap" in my apt...so many extras and too many t shirts and all. i shall never need to buy a tshirt to sleep in ever again! (let me recall this!) unless it's a fundraiser or for charity...!

i have to get on the unemployment website tonight, for sure...to do now :)
