GoodMorning. 2129 in, 2213 out. 102 water, 5.5 miles, 800 foot climb. High in calories yesterday. I bought the wrong popcorn. Now I have to eat my mistakes. I'm cutting grass tonight. Have a Healthy Day.

grannyannie on 10/06/2015:
Good job on the workouts!

puddles on 10/06/2015:
Good morning Raven. Enjoy cutting your grass tonight and work that stair climber. Have a great day.

Umpqua on 10/06/2015:
We have a cheapo air popper that has lasted over a decade and I get the kernels in bulk so we always have popcorn in the house. Nice exercise!

Can you share your model/type of stairclimber?

GoodMorning. 1185 in, 1805 out. 2 bottles of water, 1.8 miles, no exercise, cleaned gutters. Good weigh-in. Hope to get a lot of stair climber in today. Have a Healthy Day Everyone.

puddles on 10/05/2015:
Congrats Raven - Definitely a good weigh-in. Keep up the good work you are doing well and good luck on your stair climber. Have a great week.

Umpqua on 10/05/2015:
Yay, congrats on the loss and the success of your top secret stair climber mission!

grannyannie on 10/05/2015:
Well done OR!

horn_of_plenty on 10/05/2015:
Nice job on the water - you must have thrown it into a cooler like you said u might on the weekend..

Great getting your stairclimber on your worksite.

GoodMorning. 1749 cals in, 1862 cals out. 2.2 miles on my feet. The stair climber is in place at work and I wasn't arrested. I had just enough time for a short climb. I think it was 3000 feet or as tall as Big Ben. The display got wet when it was in the truck overnight and it rained. Hoping it dries out OK. Weigh-in tomorrow. Should be a Low day today. Low food, Low water and Low to no exercise. Hope everyone has a Healthy Day.

grannyannie on 10/04/2015:
Well done on not getting arrested! :D

hollybelle on 10/04/2015:
Ah, success for the climb! Wonderful!

puddles on 10/04/2015:
Glad we did not have to go bail you out of jail Raven. Good luck tomorrow morning.

Thanks Puddy :v)

GoodMorning. 1600 cals in, 1869 out. 2 bottles of water, 2.4 miles, no exercise. I've just got the stair climber machine in my trailer. I brought it in 3 pieces, first thing in the morning under the cover of darkness. Not really. There is a big bright light over the door where I brought it in. Cameras were probably on me. Now I'm just waiting for the guards to come and get me. Oh well. Without risk there really isn't any adventure. Have a Healthy Day.

hollybelle on 10/03/2015:
OR - I have had a pretty stressful week and kind of lost my smile some this week but your posts have made me smile. I like your stealth popcorn story and the stair climber machine tucked away in your work trailer is great! You are a man with a plan and it's paying off! Good for you, OR - well played!

grannyannie on 10/03/2015:
Have a great weekend! Like your sneaky plans.

GoodMorning. 1991 intake, 2348 burn, 6.3 miles walking for the day. I think this is the first Thursday I've stayed under calorie. Off work today. My water will probably be low. I'm dragging my stair climber machine out of the basement today and putting it in the truck. Have a Healthy Day.

Umpqua on 10/02/2015:
So sneaking healthy food worked - it's a shame you have to do that though. Just loading and unloading the stair climber should be a good workout for you :D

ohioraven on 10/02/2015:
Yup !

thinkpositive on 10/02/2015:
Good luck with the stair climber. Hope you have some help to move it! Those things look very heavy!

grannyannie on 10/02/2015:
Have a good day!

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.

puddles on 10/01/2015:
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.

It's ok to be busy but I hope you find some time to relax if you are looking for it!
