Happy New Year's Eve.

Yesterday, I didn't go to the market a second time. I think it's because my washing machine seems to have broken down on me. The drum doesn't spin during the spin cycle, which means the belt is probably finally too loose. It hasn't been drying the clothes enough for the last couple of months. I'll see if my landlord can help me fix it, but if he can't, I don't feel like buying a new one.

I did go to the shoppping mall, though. I had some raffle tickets from when I bought my sewing machine and I had my eye on a Nintendo. I was in line for an hour, and I was early. By the time I left, the line had doubled in length.

Anyway, I had 10 tickets, the official counted 12, who am I to contradict him, and I won 8 pocket tissues, 3 tissue boxes, and 3 mini handwarmers. The three lowest possible prizes. Bit like Friday's nice towel. I'm just not that lucky.

Today, I slept in. And then I remembered that I needed to clean for the new year. I got some of it done. The laundry room has never been so dust-free.

Tonight, I'm watching SASUKE (aka Ninja Warrior) and a comedy special, where the comedians are put into funny situations and are smacked in the butt if they laugh. (Googling "gaki no tsukai" should bring up videos from last year's special if you're interested.)

So that's my night. Watching TV alone. Who knows if I'll be awake when it's midnight.

Breakfast chocolate bread
coffee
chcolate bites
Lunch Red Bull
chicolate chip cookies
Dinner cheese pizza with sausage
Coca-cola
canned cocktail (mojito)

I may or may not have another drink before the end of the year. I'm not much of a drinker.

Tomorrow, I'm planning to go to Tokyo. I know of at least one store that's selling a lucky bag (a grab-bag with mystery goods inside) I want.

Here's to an okay year. I gained 15 pounds between Jaunary and June and lost it again. I got out of my shell enough to visit a bar, but not enough to get a date. And I got to do some cool stuff this year. I don't know what 2019 will bring, but I have hope and power.

... I might go to the shrine tonight. Maybe get some good fortune and favor for the new year.

Progress as of today: 15 lbs lost so far, only 85 lbs to go!

graindart on 12/31/2018:
We'll be staying in this NYE. Invited family over for dinner, but everyone decided to stay home due to crappy weather.

Doubt I'll be awake come midnight, but will give my daughters the option and I'm sure they'll decide to stay up. We've got a nice view overlooking the city and they'll be able to watch fireworks from the living room.


Donkey on 01/01/2019:
Happy New Year!


Horn_of_plenty on 01/01/2019:
Hi Pink! Sounds like a good night to me! nice and relaxing for New Years!

Usually, if i work on New Year's Eve, i stay home too because i'm tired from being up in the morning hours. This year i was off so i drove to a party but the weather was bad so the drive was a bit scary. sometimes it's good to be home watching movies!

Yes, cheers to 2019 and open possibilities!

A double punch.

Yesterday, I was stuck in a bit of a holding pattern at home, waiting for a package delivery.

The party at the office was good. I think the main reason it was thrown was: it's the last day of the year and everyone wants to stop working after 5.

I ate a lot of food. I won a bar of Lush soap during the bingo game. I also won a nice towel: the game was rock-paper-scissors and I made it to the top three. The three prizes: a bottle of champagne, a secret envelope present from the boss (I bet it was money), and a nice towel. I would have rather lose than win that towel, but if you try to take that towel from me, I will bite you.

It's a very nice towel.

Breakfast omelet: 2 eggs and a sausage
shredded cheese
Lunch rice
chicken and veg in tomato sauce with cheese
Dinner - Party Red Bull
two slices of pizza
fried chicken and waffle fries
kimchi soup
two types of potato salad, one type of macaroni salad
icebox cake? some layered dessert with pineapples, cookies, cream

Today's the first day of the big, three-day comic market in Tokyo. I didn't go last year, so I felt especially anxious? to go this year. It involves a lot of walking and looking at a lot of small booths selling handmade or indie stuff.

I spent most of today checking out the accessories and looking for sellers I bought from last time. I usually spend a lot of money, but this year, not that much. I think it's because I didn't feel like I had a lot of time to peruse. Or because I'm more used to it. Or because I'm going to another market in two weeks and I need to pace myself.

Also, I put together a very nice outfit for today: my favorite bohemian-ish skirt and a complementary sweater. It wasn't fash-ee-ohn, but it wasn't my usual jeans and a shirt either, and that's pretty good for me. No clue what I'll wear tomorrow.

Breakfast party leftovers: pizza slice, 2 fried chicken bits, waffle fries
Red Bull
coffee
Lunch too busy
Dinner leftovers: rice, chicken and veg in tomato sauce, cheese
Orangina

I didn't feel that bad about breakfast because I knew I would need the fuel. Fitbit thinks I walked 17k steps today.

I'm going again tomorrow, but if I felt that there was very little to buy today, I'm going to feel that even more tomorrow. Also, I'm not going on the third day. The third day is always for the fellows only. There'll be nothing for me there.

Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 86 lbs to go!

Donkey on 12/29/2018:
Fitbit might be right. Whenever I go downtown to Chicago, I seem to accumulate HUGE numbers of steps, even though I'm just going from point A to point B to point C...

pinklatte on 12/31/2018:
Just walking around really gets those numbers up.


Horn_of_plenty on 12/29/2018:
I'd rather have won the towel than the champagne! I'd love a "nice" free towel! Is it a beach towel?

Nice job pacing yourself on the spending. I'm doing that too! It's wonderful. I have already set aside $500 to ONLY spend while on vacation. I think it will go quickly as I'm on vacation for 2 weeks or 14 days. Half a month is a long time. However, my goal is to make it so that i don't have anything to owe or pay back on credit cards when i come back from vacation :) if that makes sense! I want to come back fully debt free :)

pinklatte on 12/31/2018:
It's more of a tea towel. 2 feet by 10 inches, is my guess I didn't measure it.

I love your vacation money planning. It absolutely makes sense to me.


Horn_of_plenty on 12/31/2018:
haha, yeah, maybe you were rocking your fit bit ;) too bad they aren't as smart as we are!


Horn_of_plenty on 12/31/2018:
all that money, it mostly came to me because of good luck. i won $200 of it...that raffle if you remember?

and then the other $300 i had issues with accidentally being charged for a service i don't use...and caught it in time with my bank to help me get all the charges refunded. so, it's all on a card i don't use much, a credit for $300.

so the $200 raffle money and my own $300 being credited all back at once is a NICE sum of money!! :) perfectly works out. i plan to try to use it over time as NOT in two days!

Yesterday, I did very little. I did the laundry, watched some videos, and took an ill-advised nap in the afternoon. I woke up feeling like a turtle that was flipped onto its shell.

Today, I started cleaning for the new year and managed... two corners of my living room. Well, I don't think I did much except move stuff around, but the main room feels so much cleaner. I put the clothes away. Threw out some old papers. Washed the bedding. Took out the trash. Sorted some of the recycling. Swept up the dust.

Before I started, I thought to myself, I want to be creative, but can anyone really be creative in this sty? I haven't even gotten started in the second room. (I got distracted with finishing a mini craft project.) (Also, it really sucks that that room is even colder than the main one.) But I really feel a bit more... at ease, now. I feel more productive. (It might just be a quick burst of energy just before my period starts, that happens sometimes.)

Breakfast chocolate bread
Red Bull
coffee
? I don't remember
Lunch chocolate bread
cheese bread
Dinner steamed pizza bun
sandwich
Red Bull
half a meat pie

Food was not great today. I don't know why I didn't cook, maybe because I really can only focus on one thing at a time?

It's still early? Maybe? It's 8pm. So I'm going to go for a walk before bathtime and work on either a. making a dent in the pile of stuff in the second room or b. sewing up a draft stopper for the one of doors in the main room. Probably a. The second room's where I do the sewing. And the new sewing machine deserves nothing less than a tidy workroom.

... Was that weird of me to say?

Tomorrow, cooking, cleaning, and errands, most likely. I have to buy snow tires eventually. In the evening, there's a end-of-year party of sorts at the office. Not sure what to expect except drinks and bingo. I want to drink, which means taking the train. ... But driving's so much easier.

Progress as of today: 15 lbs lost so far, only 85 lbs to go!

BearCountryGG on 12/27/2018:
Cleanin always makes things better!!

pinklatte on 12/29/2018:

horn_of_plenty on 12/27/2018:
No, not weird! cleaning makes me feel so much better and happier too! I love a clean apt! who doesn't!

I am also eager to get MORE COOKING underway this weekend. :)

as far as drinks, i want to put all drinking on the backburner...def don't want any weight gain right now :)

pinklatte on 12/29/2018:
The hard part for me is the actual cleaning. But having a nice, clean place feels like the best reward.

*thumbs up*


horn_of_plenty on 12/27/2018:
seems it's easy to drink away this time of year...i actually sorta canceled on my coworker! would rather just go home and relax right now :) it's nice to be home and just relax! :) enjoy.

pinklatte on 12/29/2018:
This time of year is just party-party-party, depending if you're lucky or not.

Relaxation. :)

Merry Christmas, if you're celebrating. :)

Yesterday (it's Wednesday already, here) was good. I had a "Christmas Party" for the weekend class kids. We played a few games and then I gave them markers and paper to make greeting cards. And that marks the last day of work! I'm free! I'm free! ..... Until I go to the office tomorrow and start planning for the next set of weekend classes.

My family Facetimed me during work. Right at the right time, during a break between classes. It was weird, awkward, and it made me very very happy.

Breakfast onion cheese bread
Red Bull
Lunch sandwich
fruit/veg smoothie/juice
cup of custard pudding
Snack Red Bull
pizza steamed bun
Dinner chicken paella
fried chicken
basil shrimp with potato and mixed veg
canned cocktail (sangria)
mochi ice cream

I had some precooked food from the grocery store for my Christmas dinner. I dubbed it fancy, but now, some hours later, I think I gave it more luster than it deserved? I forgot the cake, but the ice cream is just as good.

Today, I'm going to lounge around at home. I think I should clean, though. Mostly because the house is a mess, but also, it's not a bad idea to get started on the end-of-year housecleaning.

Progress as of today: 16 lbs lost so far, only 84 lbs to go!

Horn_of_plenty on 12/25/2018:
yes...i have to clean too....yum you had sangria! everything sounds good. i hope you relaxed! sounds that way.!!

pinklatte on 12/27/2018:
Cleaning's hard work. I'm just glad that I can finally take a break from thinking about work.


graindart on 12/25/2018:
Had to google mochi ice cream. Looks good. Will put it on my list of things to try if I'm ever in a place serving it.

pinklatte on 12/27/2018:
It is good. The mochi ice cream I had was called 'Yukimi Daifuku', but any brand or kind prob. tastes good.


BearCountryGG on 12/26/2018:
I ordered mochi ice cream...but it melted before it got here.....more like mochi soup...but it was tasty...not as sweet as regular ice cream.

pinklatte on 12/27/2018:
Mochi soup!? Oh no. :)

Last night, I didn't want to go clothes shopping so much, I went on a walk instead. (The walk got me in the caloric "zone", according to my Fitbit, even with the late night food.)

Post walk, last night pizza steamed bun
Orangina
chocolate bread
Breakfast sandwich
Red Bull
Lunch two rice balls, one tuna, one salmon
fruit/veg juice
canned coffee
Dinner Red Bull
burrito, curry cheese burger
cheese bread
chocolate bread

I don't want to go anywhere tonight. It's too cold and windy and I feel emotionally weird. Maybe it's the holiday. The department store was full of people this afternoon. And judging based on that, I don't think I wanted to deal with the crowds at the mall.

After spending most of my time planning for work, I completely forgot to plan anything for tonight or tomorrow. ... It kind of doesn't matter, though, does it. I have no one to celebrate with. I'll just, what, treat myself to some fried chicken and cake.

Tomorrow, work. And then, finally, finally, vacation time.

I don't know what it is about these special classes, but I feel so drained afterwards. I took a mini break at a convenience store parking lot and I think I fell asleep. It was a bit embarrassing.

Breakfast ham and cheese rolls
blueberry yogurt drink
chocolates
Red Bull
Lunch sandwich (363)
green smoothie
cup of coffee with milk
Dinner chocolates
coffee
burrito

I need to buy clothes for work. I've been planning to do specifically that for weeks, but I've been dragging my feet.

Nothing cute fits me. At least, that's how I feel... and what I experienced every time I tried to buy clothes. Everything here runs small, and I'm a lot of lady. But I'll bite the bullet and go to the mall tonight. Maybe I'll find a nice, loose sweater.

But I doubt it.

Tomorrow, work.

Progress as of today: 15 lbs lost so far, only 85 lbs to go!

graindart on 12/23/2018:
Mmmmm burrito. I've been kind of craving them lately. But I'm not really interested in the normal small burritos. No, I want a huge bursting-at-the-seams type of burrito smothered in enchilada sauce / sour cream / guac. Haven't checked potential calorie count on one, but I'm guessing the type I'd like would wipe out my daily calorie allowance by itself. And I don't really want to just eat one burrito as my entire day's intake. One burrito and 5 zero calorie redbulls probably wouldn't be a good choice on my part......

I understand the clothes buying concern and can imagine that it's much more difficult living in a country where the average size is smaller. And buying clothing online is always a gamble. It's hard to tell from a photo on a screen how something really looks, feels, and potentially fits.

pinklatte on 12/24/2018:
Man, I would LOVE a bursting-at-the-seams burrito. I'm going to have to find a good Mexican restaurant somewhere.

Usually, the things I end up buying online fit, thank goodness, but finding my size on Japanese sites is a headache, and American sites might charge way too much or don't ship overseas at all. (And I'm a cheapskate.)


Donkey on 12/23/2018:
I wish I had someone who would shop for me, to help me out of my comfort zone of baggy pants and big sweaters.

pinklatte on 12/24/2018:
Ditto. You can try out one of those subscription clothes boxes.


Horn_of_plenty on 12/23/2018:
what are your "special classes" you are talking about? are you taking classes?

all i know is that whenever i have taken "crash courses" to cram for exams or on a topic i don't know a lot about, it would also tire me out completely. the hours all in the same room, same teacher, not moving. always tiring! maybe bring a coffee and/or snacks so the class can go by a little smoother

it's the time of year for sales, so i hope you find something nice. I know donkey was also looking!

pinklatte on 12/24/2018:
No, these are the weekend classes that I keep stressing out over.

I'm not a shop-til-I-dropper, but hopefully I'll find something nice.

I haven't posted anything in nearly a week. I really should log in everyday.

Anyway, Monday was the last work day of the year. I don't remember what I ate for breakfast or dinner, but I did buy groceries after work. Bonus to me. Lunch had miso soup, and I felt shy about posting that then because I had miso-mayo dressing Sunday. It's not like I go out of my way to have miso everyday.

Tuesday, I forgot to turn off the workday alarms. I woke up at 5am. Whoops. I spent the morning cleaning at home, and the afternoon at the office. I don't have any more work at school, but I do have 4 more workdays this weekend. And I needed to prepare. Breakfast was a cheese bread that was not delicious, lunch was chicken and vegetables with rice. After work, I had a rare craving for ramen. A coworker reccomended a restaurant months and months ago. Turns out to be a miso ramen restaurant. This is a complete coincidence. I ate too much then I got lost on the way home.

Wednesday, I thought I could prep for the classes at home. I couldn't didn't. Whoops. Breakfast was eggs and different type of cheese bread. Lunch was more chicken/veg/rice. Dinner was with the older folks-black vinegar-sauced chicken and veg with salad, rice, and noodles. The noodles might have been too much, but I devoured it all. Told the older folks about the miso ramen. "Soy sauce-based ramen is better," they said. I might end up eating some next week to make sure.

Thursday, breakfast was... eggs? I think? With rice, maybe? Lunch was the last of the chicken/veg. Went to the office in the afternoon, got about 35% of the prep done. Or maybe 15%. There was a lot of work involved. I took a break at one point to scroll through Twitter, and someone posted pics of their homemade journal. I've been thinking of making one of my own, so I spent a long while at the stores late in the night, looking for the perfect notebook. I didn't find it, but the one I did buy isn't too bad.

Friday, breakfast was a burrito. Lunch was a sandwich, rolls and drinkable yogurt. I spent the entire day, 10-5, at the office, finishing the prep. I very nearly didn't get all the copies done. I had to finish cutting everything at home while watching Netflix. I finally finished prepping at 12:30 am. I did such a good job getting everything ready, I treated myself to pizza. Minor upside, a medium pizza here (23cm/9in) is probably smaller than a small pie in the US. Major downside, I ate a whole pie. Eight slices. The first four slices were so delicious, I wanted another four. I regret it.

Today, Saturday, work. Breafast was 4 slices of pizza. Lunch was a repeat of the sandwich I had yesterday, it was delicious, with a green smoothie, canned coffee, and an orange. I have been eating one or two oranges daily since Monday. Then I had a cake and coffee on the way home, and the last four slices for dinner.

The celeb that drove though town while I was working weeks ago? Today, they aired the episode he was filming for. They didn't use the footage of the time I saw him. They did show him visit a local restaurant that sells fried miso pork cutlet rice bowls. I want one. It looked delicious.

The sewing machine came a day early. I got it tonight, yay. It's very late, 10pm, but I still want to play with it before bed.

Tonight's the winter solstice. I had a hot bath with some citrus fruit floating in the water (it's a Japanese thing and I had the fruit) and a few candles. Watching the flames and the steam rise while instrumental music played... I haven't felt that relaxed in ages.

Tomorrow, work. I didn't buy groceries tonight. I have eggs, some veg, and some rice. But the chances that I will actually cook an omelet and pack a lunch are low.

Progress as of today: 15 lbs lost so far, only 85 lbs to go!

Horn_of_plenty on 12/23/2018:
After my full day in the city yesterday, like you i made sure to stop and get a small amount of groceries. I did it on purpose as i was already out & knew that i needed some minor things - like ground turkey if i want to cook some meat :) I did it on purpose so i can be HOME ALL DAY TODAY :) sooo happy about this.

But miso is good! don't be shy to post it! :)....

A good day at work. The plan I made worked out better than I hoped.

Tomorrow is my last full day at school before the new year, yay. But I have to make plans for the lessons next weekend, boo. I'm planning to spend the rest of the week at the office, working as fast as possible to get ready for six days' worth of classes. I'll try not to stress out too much over it. But the sooner I can get everything ready, the sooner I can relax and actually spend my vacation time doing vacation things.

I'm tired out just thinking about it.

Breakfast

cocoa (159)
ham and cheese rolls (320)
Red Bull

Lunch salmon rice ball (230)
half a tuna rice ball (110)
veggie sticks with miso mayo dip (150)
chocolates (250)
hot cocoa
Dinner chocolate bread
burrito
coffee

Wow, I eat a lot of junk.

I didn't make a lunch for myself. I... haven't bought groceries in a long while. Also, I didn't even finish the lunch I did bring. Dinner was actually a post-work snack, I half-planned of going out for dinner later, but it's 8pm and I'm not that hungry.

... I'll probably be very hungry in the morning.

Miso mayo dip is new to me....sounds interesting.


graindart on 12/16/2018:
Seems like you really enjoy your carbs. Me too. Unfortunately the more I eat, the more I crave. So I've had to make a conscious choice to cut down on the sugar side of carbs more than I'd like and replace it with some additional protein.

Keep up the fight and enjoy the vacation time.


Donkey on 12/16/2018:
Miso mayo - on my list of things to try!


Horn_of_plenty on 12/16/2018:
actually, your foods do NOT look like junk food to me at all! i think you eat rather well. just maybe add a few more veggies in and a fruit and you are fine! but really, the food is mostly healthy up there.

last week i also didn't eat my planned lunch as often as i'd like...this week i plan to bring the soup that's still leftover - 2 big portions of vegetable soup for Monday and Tuesday and it'd be a crime to waste it as the ingredients were expensive and it's in a very healthy Bone Broth, if you are familiar?


Donkey on 12/17/2018:
I was confused between miso and wasabi. Wasabi mayo sounds like something I'd like to try, LOL. Not sure if that's a product or not.

My hands are as close to 100% as I can live with. I can throw out both thumbs up and middle fingers without pain, which is more than enough for me.

I did some cleaning, mostly making my closet look neater. I dug out a pair of acid wash jeans (blerk) from the pile of pants and tried them on to see. I thought I could fit into them a bit? But my butt is still too big for them. So there's that.

I had a thought to go out and buy a puffy jacket today. My winter coat is a bit old and kind of bulky, and I don't have a casual, everyday jacket. Just a wornout hoodie. But I wasn't in the mood to buy clothes, I guess. Also, Uniqlo's jackets were $120 (is that a lot?), and I'm not even into them.

I also had a thought to buy a new sewing machine. My old one works, but I hate it. (I can't use a foot controller with it and I broke the spool holder stick years ago.) I grabbed a lot of flyers, thinking of looking through all of them at home, only to order one, spur-of-the-moment, at the second store I visited. The delivery's next week. $500. That was the "maybe a tablet/maybe a trip to Osaka" money. *shrug* I got a lot of raffle tickets for my purchase, and I don't think I'll win the big prize, but I filled them out anyway. You gotta be in it to win it.

I wanted something light for dinner, like soup. Soup would have been nice. I ended up at a conveyor belt sushi place. And then a office supply store.

Breakfast cookies
cheese bread
Lunch burrito (350)
coffee (116)
chocolate bread
Dinner 8 plates of sushi (a lot of meat.)
fried dumplings

Tomorrow, work. I'm going to try the whole "buy clothes" thing tomorrow afterwards. Maybe. Tonight... I don't know. Might just go to bed early.

I don't think I had any real sleep last night. A lot of tossing and turning and nightmares because I couldn't get into a position where my arm didn't hurt. Is it even possible to pinch a nerve in your tricep? (It's more likely a pinched nerve in my wrist that I felt in my tricep. I don't know.)

My hands and wrists are mostly back to normal. I can almost give a thumb's up without wincing now, which was nearly impossible to do this morning. Hopefully, I'll be fine tomorrow?

I got some backpay owed to me today. It's for the weekend work I've been doing. Considering how much those classes have been stressing me out, I'm glad I finally got paid for them. I want to buy a tablet with that money. But I'm also thinking of running away to Osaka after the New Year. It's a terrible plan: work on Saturday, take an overnight bus?, go to a special event Sunday, Universal Studios Monday, and be back in time for work Tuesday. 

We'll see if I even book myself a hotel room.

Maybe I should buy clothes instead.

Breakfast chocolate bread x2 (652)

Apart from eating a lot of bread: I was starving mere hours after breakfast yesterday, which is why I ate two rolls this morning. I wasn't hungry until just before lunch. Result!

Tomorrow, work. Tonight, pro wrestling and cleaning. It didn't snow today, thank goodness.

Progress as of today: 16 lbs lost so far, only 84 lbs to go!

You and Happy remind me so much of each other......you lead very different lives...yet I see so many similarities..............

Now I'm going to have to figure out what these similarities are.

Hey, the radial nerve controls movement of the tricep muscle, and is responsible for extending the wrist, so that may be the issue? Sometimes massage helps!

pinklatte on 12/15/2018:
Never had a massage before. But now I want one.

i wore an extremely heavy sweater...and at lunch i was walking so much that i had to open my jacket! i was one of those hot people walking outside today too!

*thumbs up*


horn_of_plenty on 12/12/2018:
well the pinched nerve you feel that you say is in the tricep...it could be stemming from a disc in your back....pain in your limbs can come from a pinching happening in the spinal cord...

pinklatte on 12/15/2018:
Well, that's something else to worry about. But I think the wrist was more likely because all the pain going on there.
