Diary of a Mad Fat Woman (Update)

Diary of a Mad Fat Woman 7-6-18

A while back I started a post called diary of a mad fat woman. This talked about or ranted about all the things that women of a certain size could not find in regular stores and had to go to other stores that were specially designed for larger people but most of the stores never had anything women of plus size wanted to wear. I look back on my blog and came to see that I'm not mad anymore, but I will still keep the title “Diary of a mad fat woman” since I never reach the weight loss goal that I was looking to a achieve but I'm happy with the condition of my body.



Since my last post I believe I did lose a few pounds but I am still considered overweight which is totally fine with me because I am an active overweight woman I participate in Taekwondo, I go to the gym, I walk and I run sometimes, I work out at home and manage my eating with very well. As the years went by and I started to look at myself more and appreciate myself more. I find that the more that you dumped down on yourself about the weight that you think you're supposed to be you set yourself back. Taking it slowly at first, working out even if it's like 20 minutes a day just doing something that makes you active and watching all the stuff that you eat because that's a large part of why I stayed fat.

I am much more concerned about what I eat now, but not monitoring the foods that I was eating and not watching what I was taking in, which I was taking in a lot of food and still borderline kinda am now and then like on my post titled “A day out” where I talked about going to Manhattan from Brooklyn and when I was in Manhattan I was having a day to myself I ate what I wanted, and what I wanted  to eat wasn't all that healthy, but it was only like one day and I tried not to regret it  and just get back on the horse. Now you know you have to workout twice as hard and make sure you are also putting in right foods in your body and do all that work so you can achieve the goals. My goal now is to stay healthy as healthy as I can but also I want to lose at least 20 pounds, but I'm not gonna dump down on myself or kill myself over not being able to achieve that in a short amount of time. What matter is that you keep pushing and you keep trying
.
So at whatever weight you're at make sure you're taking care of yourself. Make sure you're monitoring what you're eating and what you're putting into your body. Remember to try not to eat thing that has a lot of sodium, not a lot of fat, and even still like all those things that you put into your body, there are alternatives for those. I started eating veggie burgers and vegan type foods just to give myself a variety of foods that I can choose from other than what I have here at home.

So don't judge your progress by your scale, judge it by how you are actively keeping yourself healthy whether it's 1 pound, 2 pounds, or 3 pounds as long as you're taking off those pounds and your happy  doing it and you're not punishing yourself in any form or fashion in regards to what your restricting yourself from. All the power to you. Remember to just keep pushing and doing your best to get yourself where you wanna be that person that you see yourself being.

A DAY OUT -FROM BROOKLYN TO MANHATTAN

Hi, everybody, it’s been awhile since I have written a post on my blog and I am trying out a new dictation system on my Windows 10 so hopefully, I will get to blog a little bit more. A lot has happened since I've last blogged. I wanted to share all the stuff that I that has happened to me and the places that I went. I've been on vacation for the past 2 weeks. It's amazing how you are so eager to go on vacation but then when you already have vacation you don't really know what to do with yourself, so I think about myself to explore the city that I live in well only a small part of the city of it I've always seen Brooklyn Bridge Park from afar and decided that one day when it was sunny I was going to go.

So, I'm that day I decided to go to the park I really didn't plan anything I just took it upon myself to follow the directions and walk myself to the park um I got lost a little bit because I didn't really know how to read my um Google map and but it was simply not that I redirected myself and I got there but I must say that the park is very beautiful. You can take the A train to the Brooklyn Bridge stop and the walk is not very far. The park is clean, spacious, and you can catch the ferry to Manhattan, but what is most impressive is the view. While I was there I walked around and took some nice pictures off the bridge, ends of the statue Liberty but you can see from this you at the park. After being at the park for a while I decided that I wanted to do something else I've never been on the ferry here in Brooklyn and decided to take the ferry from Brooklyn Bridge Park to 34th St. in Manhattan. From 34th St I walked all the way to 42nd St-Times Square where I shopped around at different stores so if you're into shopping there are a lot of stories there’s Old Navy, H&M, the gap, any number of other stores.

Also, there are a lot of places to eat. I decided to stop at BB Q's to have lunch which was very delicious so if you're ever in time square is in you just need a quick bite BBQ's is right there in In Times Square and they are fast so you won't say hungry for long. After eating lunch, I decided that I wanted to see a movie, so I went to the Regal Theater and I have to say that this one is one of the most luxurious theater that I ever been in. The seats are recliners so you're able to sit and watch your movie in Comfort Inn not have to worry about like space or anyone saying excuse me while passing through or having anyone bottom in your face while they pass by.  After the movie, I went to dinner at the Olive Garden which is all the way past the red steps in Times Square wall right behind the red steps in Times Square it was packed at the time that I went, and I have to say that the service was good, and the food was great.


In all, I had to say that I had a very pleasant day. So if you're ever in New York make sure to check out Brooklyn Bridge park and take the ferry ride over to Manhattan and less you're tired and you just don't have it in you to walk you can catch a cab from 34th St to  42nd St. Times Square mix and mingle with the rest of the tourist that are there .

Rest In Peace Princess Leia: Carrie Fisher Dies at 60

This year totally sucks for Hollywood...It has lost so many great actors and 2016 seemingly is leaving without taking a couple more people with it. I saw Star Wars when I first came to the U.S. and it was one of the greatest  movie I ever saw in my life...Princess Leia was one of my favorite characters because she was strong and fearless and didn't just cry and wimpier. When sh*t got real she helped herself and choked out who she wanted...I will forever remember her as a fearless warrior who fought to save her people and help out her then unknown brother lol...I love it and will forever be a fan.

RIP Princess Leia- May the Force be with you

K DRAMA ADDICT

Hey everyone!

So it's been a while and boy can I tell you I've missed writing to you all. So I haven't bee up to much just teaching and playing games, but I've left my game because I've been watching so much K-Dramas aka Korean Dramas. If you haven't watched a K-Drama man are you missing out. Some of these drama are so good. Of course I have to say sorry but these dramas are mainly for woman, girls, boys with emotions. SO here are some of the dramas I've been watching. The most recent on is 

#1. CheeseintheTrap 
Cheese in the Trap
Can I tell you that I loved this drama so much ....so so  much first because Seo Kang Joon, but the whole cast was totally amazing. If you watch this drama you will be cheering for Yoo Jung and Seol the two main characters all the way to the end..the end oh yeah don't watch the last 10 mins. of the last episode if you know what's good for you TRUST ME! If you are on DramaFever and read the reviews for the last episode you will understand what I'm talking about.

Next up one that just want into my all time favorite and I can watch this again like two more times list is 

#2 Oh My Venus
Oh My Venus

I love love this series because of the two main actors Si Ji Sub and Shin Min Ah are totally amazing together as the main characters Kang Joo Eun (Shi Min Ah) and Kim Young Ho (So Ji Sub). Totally out of shape lawyer loses her guy to another woman and she tries to find away to get back to her old sexy self...Here come  Young Ho to save the day after Joo Eun passes out on plane and he says to save her...The story develops nicely and the two characters slowly but surely end up in a relationship..I highly recommend this one...WATCH IT!! WATCH IT. Oh yeah if you are so into Korean rap you should check out So Ji Sub's songs on Youtube ...He is really good.

#3 Moorim School
Moorim School

Awesome awesome series....I also recommend this series...hopefully it has an amazing ending and nothing crappy like some of the K-Dramas that are out. If you love mystery, mystical and totally hot male leads you're gonna love this one.

#4 Noble , My Love
Noble, My Love

That's it for now I just thought I would get back in there and write something...Love these check them out on DramaFever.

CAN A TEACHER GET A FREE METROCARD OR WHAT?




Okay readers so personal thought. While I was getting on the bus today, a crossing guard got on the bus with me and showed her ID and got on the bus for free. While I who also work for the City of New York had to pay my $2.75 so I could get to my next job. I am a substitute teacher, but I am on call everyday and am on the bus or train all the time. 



So why is it that teachers can't get a MetroCard?

Are we unworthy of the pass or something? Seeing that we wake up at the break of dawn to get to where we have to go and then take public transportation, most of the time I think we should get one. Personal spending $116.00 dollars each month out of my paycheck is a little uncalled for, since I am living paycheck to paycheck. I am sure that the MTA will find some other reason to hike up the fair to $3.00 dollars at some point and then the monthly MetroCard will also go up in cost.

What are your thoughts? Should teachers be entitled to free MetroCards OR Should all city works be entitled to MetroCards?

IT'S BEEN A WHILE



Hey all it's ME!!! Well it sure has been a while since I posted anything here, and I wanted to come by and give and update on what is going on around me, with me, and for me.


Life is so a big ball of stress, but you have to push through it and smile or else you will totally drown. So let's first start off with what's going on around me. Well most of you know that I live in New York and last week was a total mess with traffic and all since the Pope was in town. There were a lot of people out there showing love to the Pope for his visit to the United States. I only got to see him on TV, because I wasn't going to go out there  plus, I like my sanity. Getting through any cowards in New York will drive you totally crazy. But it's great to see so many people show their faith, since so much of us really don't. 

Whatelse??? Well unless you are one of the mold people or living in a cave you totally saw the Super Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse. It was amazing! I spent about an hour outside with my son watching it and he was totally amazed by the moon changing color. I was so happy to watch it with him, because when the next one happens I'll be in my 50's and him in his 20's. It's really amazing all the natural things that happen around us and above us. So now and then it's nice to take notice of the wonders that are universe let's us enjoy for free. Source: Flickr. Original Title: “Blood Moon Suspended in space” by Sudhamashu Hebbar.

Now we are going to move on with what's happening with ME! Well I've been a a HUGH slump when it comes to my writing. I haven't really written anything new and my old projects have yet to be finished. The last story that I wrote ALTERED GENESIS, is still on there on Smashwords.com waiting for you all to grab a copy. But for right now I haven't done anything new. I have been thinking of ways to finish up other projects I've been working on such as, the next installment of The Adventures of Marco and Carla, which I am hoping will be done maybe by the end of the year. I've been working on two other stories besides that and I don't know the they will be finished. 

I am hoping that this block that I am having will go away soon. HOPEFULLY!!!

I am back to work (Woohooo)! With low book sales, sadly I cannot retire and just sit around and write books. So it's back to substitute teaching. Why do I like teaching? Well besides the fact that I get most of my ideas when I am at work, I also love being able to teach those that are willing to listen and learn something that's not on TV or YouTube. So far so good.

Well now what's going on for me?? Nothing much really just working. Over the summer I went back home to Jamaica and it was an amazing trip. Why do you ask? Because I got time to chill and relax and spend some time with my family. I also got to go out and do some well earned fishing. For the first time in my life I got seasick and I was totally pissed off at my self, since I pride myself on being the granddaughter of a great fisherman (R.I.P). Oh yeah!! So if like anyone wants to buy me a plane ticket to South Korean, please do!! I've been thinking about taking a trip to South Korean for awhile now. It's on the list of my top 10 places I want to visit. It's like tied with my other number one Japan. Hopefully I get to go soon, because I've been drowning myself in Korean Dramas. My latest obsession which ended "Scholar Who Walks at Night" AMAZING... 

But well that's enough...Hopefully I will be updating you all about what is coming out next for me and other things that I love and I think you should look into loving also. 

Have and amazing Day.....joh-eun halu doeseyo!!
