GoodMorning 1938 cals, 102 h2o, 5 mile bike ride. Last night's dinner was at the Brookville Grill. Salad with grilled chick breast, fat free ranch. And a baked potato plain with the same pack of fat free ranch. So, pretty good in my book. Also, My bike's computer settings went from Imperial to Metric without me noticing at first. I seemed to be going very fast and very far in a very short time. Have a Healthy Day.

Good Morning Raven. You did do good with your choices. I had to laugh at the Metric statement since we use the metric system in Canada. Wishing you a great day.


Umpqua on 07/23/2015:
Nice choices at dinner!


grannyannie on 07/23/2015:
Good choices! My bike has metric and imperial options. UK is metric but still uses miles.

GoodMorning. 1822 cals, 102 h2o, 5 mile bike ride and some push mowing. Things I eat every day part4. Cottage Cheese with blueberries. This is My night time snack. I usually add strawberries but they are going out of season. I'm trying to replace them with kiwi, and they seem to be okay. Going on the road tonight and stopping "who knows where" for dinner. Have a Healthy Day.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 07/22/2015:
Great eats...lol, at first I thought you wanted us to guess where you'd be headed for dinner! haha. I was thinking the buffet place you sometimes write about - where these isn't much selection but u tend to find something...I forget the name of it!

Kiwis are awesome, haven't had one in maybe 6-12 months at least. Last time was probably in a fruit salad at a party of some sort!

Have fun OR on the road. Great eats. Your calories are good, nice & low! I am sure it gives you a very nice calorie deduction. Even I think I might lose on 1850 per day, not sure. I def don't gain on it, which is quite wonderful! :)

How much cottage cheese do you eat at night, a cup? Cottage cheese must be satisfying with the fruit. Similar to my breakfast this week - full fat greek yogurt with a tablespoon or so of sugar free jelly. The jelly has a little fiber in it - so it's a satisfying, smaller, breakfast. Just a change of pace. Usually I go for a breakfast sandwich of wrap and egg/avocado that I make at home, but sick of it!

ohioraven on 07/22/2015:
There is a group of us. We usually stop at Wendy's on Wednesdays but only if I kick and scream loud enough. Other than that, it might be a buffet. I eat 1cup of cottage cheese every night. About a quarter cup of blueberries.


puddles on 07/22/2015:
Good morning Raven. Your doing fine and you will be fine on the road with the buddies. Have a great day.


Umpqua on 07/22/2015:
Maybe cherries would be good in your cottage cheese? We ate a ton of them out west and I'm just seeing them in the stores here now. I know you will make good choices for dinner - wherever you may end up!


Horn_Of_Plenty on 07/23/2015:
Yep, I was thinking it must be 1 cup...much more satisfying than 1/2 cup :) I do the same lately for breakfast but with the full fat greek yogurt and sf jelly. crazy satisfying at work!

GoodMorning. 1967 cals, 102 h2o, No Exercise. Things I eat every day part3; My Evening Meal. Wendy's Plain baked potato with light ranch, Small Chili with extra Onions, No crackers. It's the same thing every visit. I never stray. Except Thursday is HonkyTonk day and there is nothing there but CRAP. Some evenings, at other restaurants, I get a Salad without cheese and go easy on the Ranch. That's about it. ALSO, I'm changing my calorie target at 2000 now. I think I can make it MOST of the time. Have a Healthy Day.

Umpqua on 07/21/2015:
What you're doing seems to be working for you so that's all that matters!

GoodMorning. 1999 cals, 102 h2o, a little biking and some push mowing. My fit bit has me wondering how accurate it is, and I have been testing it. When I walk...it counts. When I stop...it stops. When I time my activity...it does too. So I think it is really pretty accurate and I an very happy with it (And the numbers showing up on it.) Last night it showed 14,929 steps. So I got on the treadmill and walked 70 steps...it showed 15,001 . I would highly recommend them to the group.

puddles on 07/15/2015:
Good morning - Nothing like making the numbers what you want when there is only 70 steps to go. lol Your doing real good. Yes this is the life that we want to live a healthy life. onward and forward to a better life. Have a great day.


Horn_Of_Plenty on 07/15/2015:
I think I may get one down the road...and as far as your calorie-count, wow...1999...not 2,000?! ;)

ohioraven on 07/15/2015:
Yep ! 1999


Umpqua on 07/15/2015:
I leave her for a few days and look at you, you're killing it. Congratulations on the loss!

ohioraven on 07/15/2015:
Thanks, Coach !


thinkpositive on 07/15/2015:
Glad to hear about the fitbit. Are there other features on it?

ohioraven on 07/15/2015:
Calories burned, miles you walk, how long you exercise, even has how much time you sleep. Sleep cycles !


thinkpositive on 07/15/2015:
Oh! Didn't realize that it is meant to be worn 24 hr a day! That's cool,


hollybelle on 07/16/2015:
You are working it, OR!! Trust that Fitbit and rock on!

GoodMorning. 1983 cals, 102 h2o, No exercise; although FitBit said I walked over 10,000 steps yesterday. But where I work in the warehouse I can see where that is Very possible. It's good to see more names showing up on our DD website. Hope everyone is good. Have a Healthy Day.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 07/14/2015:
that's amazing that you can get such a big amount of exercise in without even planning it! LOL, i'm afraid to know what a fitbit would say if I had one ;)

It's all good.

Glad my yogurt tips helped you! Definitely go for Greek only...

Have a wonderful day OR!!!!!! keep drilling those holes ;)...in your belt!

ohioraven on 07/14/2015:
Ha-ha !


GottaDoIt on 07/14/2015:
I'm thinking about getting a fitbit.

ohioraven on 07/14/2015:
$20 on sale at Aldi' s supermarket.


puddles on 07/14/2015:
Good morning Raven. Your doing good that quite a few steps especially when you add that to your bike ride and the running. Have a great day.


hollybelle on 07/14/2015:
Wow - your job keeps you active. That's a good thing. You got a great deal on your Fitbit. Geez!
