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:

GoodMorning. Wo-hoo ! 189Lbs this morning. 1143 cals, low h2o, ran 5k. (This one was NOT easy) push mowed. ThankYou, HornO'Plenty for the advice on the difference in yogurt. I got a fitbit now I need to learn how to use it. If anyone needs me I'll be drilling a hole in my belt. Have a Healthy Day.

puddles on 07/13/2015:
Congrats Raven. Good job you are doing it right. Must feel good to drill that new hole in your belt. Have a great day.

GoodMorning. 2458 cals, 102 h2o, 10 mile bike ride. Hoping to run today if the rain holds off. I don't want to say running 5k is easy but it IS getting easier. I need a cheap wAtch to time myself. My cell phone is just to heavy and clumsy in my pocket. Hope you have a good and healthy day.

hollybelle on 07/12/2015:
Good job on the 10 mi bike ride! 5K run - wonderful!

ohioraven on 07/12/2015:
Thanks, Holly.

puddles on 07/12/2015:
Good morning Raven. WoW 10 miles and 5K run your really going at it. Good job keep it up. Have a great day.

grannyannie on 07/12/2015:
Well done on the bike ride and the run! Yes, running does get easier. When will you do a marathon?! :)

ohioraven on 07/12/2015:
I Would do a half marathon ; but I fear they would have to time me with a calendar.

grannyannie on 07/12/2015:

Umpqua on 07/12/2015:
Excellent work Ohio!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 07/13/2015:
Most yogurt is probiotic! It will usually say it somewhere on the label. Greek yogurt is usually probiotic too! It's in general how yogurt is made :) Definitely opt for greek yogurt. Don't opt for the ones that are flavored. You can flavor them yourself with fruit (strawberries) or other things. The additionally jelly etc that they put in is all sugar...

The most filling ones for me are Fage, the 2% or even full fat. 2% is best if you are watching calories. the non fat varieties of greek sometimes don't keep me satisfied long... You can add lots of healthy things to your yogurt. If you get non-fat, you can add some nuts and fruit...

Definitely greek is healthier than the regular yogurts. It has more protein, less sugar.

Usually, many of the brands go on sale. One week it's Face, another it's Chobani. To save money, you can try to see if the bigger multi-serving containers are on sale and eat from there...instead of the individual sizes. I usually go for individual since I am bringing them to work or not eating them all the time.

GoodMorning. 1998 cals, 102 h2o, 5 mile bike ride. I found a really good experiment to eat thanks to HP. In a slow cooker I add a half a head of shredded cabbage, 1 bag of sauerkraut, and a bag of frozen California medley vegetables. Overnight, I get a big pot of low cal goodness. Hope everyone is good. Have a Healthy Day.

puddles on 07/11/2015:
Good morning Raven. That is a pot of goodness do you had water or broth to that? You did good with cals and water and exercise yesterday keep it up.

ohioraven on 07/11/2015:
Nope ! No water. But I will leave the brine that comes with the sauerkraut.

grannyannie on 07/11/2015:
You're doing great! Have a healthy day. Are there good places to ride your bike around you without much traffic?

ohioraven on 07/11/2015:
Hi, Annie. There is no motor traffic on our bike trails. But lots of people are using them for walking, jogging and biking.

grannyannie on 07/11/2015:
Nice! We've got quite a lot of two-bike wide tarred trails and more are being built all the time.

ohioraven on 07/11/2015:
Yep ! I'm glad that we've finally got these in my lifetime.
