Weight: 183.0

GoodMorning. 2004 cal intake, 2275 burn, 102 h2o, 5.9 miles walking for the day. Honky Tonkin' tonight. I'll try to smuggle in some healthy PopCorn. I'm going to buy a bag from the concession stand, dump it out, then take the empty bag out my car and fill it there. It's a pity I have to be sneaky to be healthy, but no trans-fat for me tonight. Have a Healthy Day.

Good morning Raven you have to do what is good for yourself. Good cal and good water in your day. Have a great day.

thinkpositive on 10/01/2015:
Oh, I like your style with the popcorn. You are buying their popcorn, just not eating it. I've been known to bring 100 cal propcorn into movie theaters in my handbag. 5.9 miles is a lot of walking!

Umpqua on 10/01/2015:
I guess you're not allowed to bring in outside food so that's a great approach!

ohioraven on 10/01/2015:
Right. No outside food or drinks.

biscottibody59 on 10/01/2015:
Hi ho, healthy popcorn:-)

GoodMorning. 1579 calorie intake. 2461 calories burned. Walked 7.4 miles. 102 h2o, no exercise. I've decided to bring in my stair climber this Saturday when no one is around. But first I have to drag it out of the basement. Have a Healthy Day.

puddles on 09/30/2015:
Good morning Raven. Your calories are good and your water also. Sneak in the exercise machine. You planning to use it on your lunch hour or just sneak off the job during the day. Keep it simple and have a great day.

ohioraven on 09/30/2015:
I'm planning on using it on breaks, after lunch, and slow times.

thinkpositive on 09/30/2015:
Where there's a will , there is a way ! And you are proving how important your health is to you. But how does one "sneak" a stair climber in to a building??!

ohioraven on 09/30/2015:
Stay tuned for my Saturday adventures.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 09/30/2015:
I hope it's not too difficult to move your stair climber into the work trailer. GREAT idea, OR. As far as exercise, NICE JOB. I can only wish right now to do that much walking. That's impressive. Right now i'm getting used again to having walking become routine again. Still working on it. Feeling better about it, slowly.

Also nice calories, good job OR.

ohioraven on 10/01/2015:
Thanks, Horny.

GoodMorning. 1745 cals, 102 h2o, no exercise. I'm supposed to push mow tonight but I think I'll just work overtime in the warehouse instead. It's going to rain all day. I'm thinking about sneaking a stair climber into my work and keeping it in an office trailer I keep locked there. I dunno. I gotta do something. Have a Healthy Day.

thinkpositive on 09/29/2015:
Hard to fit exercise into your busy work day! Some fast walking around the warehouse?

ohioraven on 09/29/2015:
Yup ! 5 miles so far. Going for at least 7.

puddles on 09/29/2015:
Good morning Raven - Not the time to panic I know you are working so hard at this and you might be upset about your Monday weigh-in but don't let it get to you it is but a bump in the road. You are consistent just keep at it and it will all work out. Have a great day.

ohioraven on 09/29/2015:
Thanks, Puddy.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 09/30/2015:
Stairclimber is probably the highest burning cardio machine out there...that would be cool to keep in your trailer. I hope you at least have a fan, if not an air conditioner?

Stairclimber would definitely be perfect for days when it's raining...and other times for a change from walking / running. Good idea.

GoodMorning. 1397 cals, 1bottle h2o, No exercise. My weight is up a little. I'm sure it's because I'm not exercising. I don't think I'll be changing much this week. Could be just a bump in the road. Have a Healthy Day.

puddles on 09/28/2015:
Good morning Raven yes we do hit bumps in the road and we should not really sweat them too much. Your Cals were real low and probably you are right with the exercise statement. Wishing you a great day and a great week. I will try to be on the site more this week at least while I am in town. During the weekend I power off all the tech stuff.

Umpqua on 09/28/2015:
I wouldn't worry about the flux, just keeping doing what you're doing :)

horn_of_plenty on 09/28/2015:
I agree with the above, don't let the increase in weight get you down. You've been on your journey for the long haul and there will always be ups and downs. Just on those down feeling moments, never forget your passion and drive to keep those positive changes you made in your life.

GoodMorning. 1594 cals, 2 bottles of h2o, push mowing. I've been busy. Have a Healthy Day.

horn_of_plenty on 09/28/2015:
It's ok to be busy but I hope you find some time to relax if you are looking for it!

GoodMorning. 2284 cals, 102 h2o, No exercise. Way over on cals. Blaming it on a big bowl of soup beans and extra PopCorn. I guess it could have been worse. Have a Healthy Day.

livinglight on 09/26/2015:
I feel you on this one! But like someone said to me - you can start a new day at any time of day so that's what I am doing!

hollybelle on 09/27/2015:
Not so bad - you are right - could have been much worse. You are doing well - overall!

GoodMorning. 2035 cals, 102 h2o, No exercise. I ate one bag of Trans-Fat PopCorn at the HonkyTonk last night. I don't know why I do it. I think it's the smell. Hope everyone is doing good. Have a Healthy Friday.

Umpqua on 09/25/2015:
I'm sure it's tempting - maybe pack a giant bag of non trans-fat?

GoodMorning. 1870 cals, 2 bottles of h2o, 12 mile bike ride. Bought 2 New pair of Transition Pants. I now have a 33 inch waist. Have a Healthy Day.

Umpqua on 09/24/2015:
Sounds like a very healthy day and yay on the new pants!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 09/24/2015:
I have heard of transition lenses for glasses...but not transition pants! I guess we learn new things everyday...

Congrats to you, everyday, for making the choice to be healthier and happier with yourself. For making better choices. Very proud of you...you are at a much better weight and I am sure also fitness level and level of health. good job, OR!

biscottibody59 on 09/24/2015:
Sounds good!

thinkpositive on 09/24/2015:
New size pants- woo-hoo!!

hollybelle on 09/25/2015:
12 miles on the bike - great fun, I hope! Congratulations on the new size waist!

GoodMorning.1980 cals, 102, h2o, no exercise again. Off work today. I should do OK on calories and even get some exercise in. But my water will probably suffer because I'm not at my desk. I always line it up on my desk in the morning. Hope everyone is good. Have a Healthy Day.

thinkpositive on 09/23/2015:
Have a great day off!

Umpqua on 09/23/2015:
Enjoy your day off and get that water in!

puddles on 09/23/2015:
Good morning Raven - A day off nice hope you enjoy it. Have a good one and yes drink your water.

horn_of_plenty on 09/23/2015:
I like your method of getting water in while at work - excellent strategy! Why don't you come up with a strategy for weekends and days off? Doesn't have to be as regimented...

ohioraven on 09/23/2015:
Maybe I'll put some bottles in the car.

GoodMorning. 1942 cals, 102 h2o, no exercise. Lots of warehouse walking. My FitBit said I walked over 7 miles. Hope everyone is doing good. Have a Healthy Day.

Umpqua on 09/22/2015:
7 miles is serious business!

livinglight on 09/22/2015:
Agreed with Umpqua! Awesome
