Good morning. IPhone works now. 5 mile bike ride yesterday. Food and water stayed on track. Have a Healthy Day.

Good job Raven. 5 Miles nice. Glad you are back on track with food and water must be the best feeling. Have a great day and wonderful weekend.

Diamond50 on 08/26/2016:
Great day for you yesterday. Achieving successful days like that always feels good. Happy Friday Raven!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 08/26/2016:

Good Morning. My IPhone wont let me text on websites. I dont know what is wrong with it, but I'm on the laptop at work and I dont have my usual spel chek to save me from my typing mistakes. No exercise yesterday and i over ate at the salad bar (actual salad with ranch dressing and cheese). I was as full as a Tick on a Hound Dog. Hoping to get a bike ride in today after work. My knees and legs are holding up good. I'll probably do the running track thing again Saturday??? Have a Healthy Day.

Horn_of_plenty on 08/25/2016:
Hola OR :)

Stinks you can't type on your iphone here. I'm guessing it may be an easy fix? Either way, you found a way. I always prefer using an actual computer to type here, but sometimes i do use my phone if i'm away from a computer. Convenience :)

anyways, i like your analogy to being full as a tick on a hound dog! lol....

enjoy your workout. and stay happy and healthy OR.

OhioRaven on 08/25/2016:
I did it, HP. I had to reset my phone and now it remembers how to do everything again.

puddles on 08/25/2016:
Cute statement about how full you were... lol You always come up with these expressions that make me laugh first thing in the morning. Have a great day Raven.

Diamond50 on 08/25/2016:
Thanks for the morning giggle OR! Peddle off your ranch and cheese tonight! Have a super day!

OhioRaven on 08/25/2016:
Yep ! I think the weather will be good enough for a Bike ride today. Thanks, Five-0.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 08/25/2016:
and yes, veggies were involved of course yesterday. along with a lot of other crazy foods that only I would find / buy :-)

Good morning. 5 mile bike ride after work. My legs were a little stiff the last couple days but I really think the bike ride helped to loosen them up. Hope everyone gets the rest they need, the healthy food they should have. And someone close you can tell your troubles to. I'll see you down the road. Have a Healthy Day.

puddles on 08/24/2016:
Good job on the bike ride. Hope you also have a great and healthy day.

Diamond50 on 08/24/2016:
Sounds like a really great bike ride OR. Keep on peddling!

Good morning. Nothing really special about yesterday. No exercise. Just took it easy. I ate sensible. Well sensible for me any way. Have a Healthy Day.

puddles on 08/23/2016:
A day off sometimes is good for the body. Have a great day but get back on that bike today... lol Congrats on sensible eating.

OhioRaven on 08/23/2016:
Yep ! I'm gonna take a ride after work :v)

Horn_Of_Plenty on 08/23/2016:
Tomorrow i'm taking it easy OR....taking sick day #1 of 5 for this vacation year (May thru April)

OhioRaven on 08/23/2016:
I can see you lounging around in your pajamas with a bowl of veggies, and watching a Soap Opera.

Duaa123. on 08/23/2016:

Good morning. Well at weigh-in this morning I recorded a solid 187 again. I ran yesterday. I ran (2 Laps), 3 miles in 36 minutes. Thanks to Horn-0-Plenty's advice I stretched out before and after running. Again only the front of my thighs were hurting as I got to mile number 3. Plenty of air in my lungs. I was Happy about that. I push mowed grass after that for about an hour. That's all I've really got to brag about. I'm happy my weight is staying constant even though I've been shoveling in too much "Good" food. Be good to each other. Have a Healthy Day.

Diamond50 on 08/22/2016:
That's lots to brag about OR and rightfully so! You're working very hard. Great job!

OhioRaven on 08/22/2016:
Thanks, Five O.

puddles on 08/22/2016:
Way to go Raven good job. You are doing real good. Must feel good to have done your 3 miles. Have a great day.

OhioRaven on 08/22/2016:
Yes, thanks,Puddy. It was a sort of mental goal for me to cross that line.

Duaa123. on 08/22/2016:
Good body activites this day R.. keep going

puddles on 08/20/2016:
Great bike ride Raven. Enjoy your day and behave at your friend"s place... if not enjoy.

Duaa123. on 08/20/2016:
Keep going R this bike ride .. and enjoy ur time with ur friends

Diamond50 on 08/20/2016:
Great bike ride! Enjoy your time with your son OR. That's a great way to start a Saturday. Ending it with good friends just adds to fun. It all sounds like a good time. Keep healthy!

Horn_of_plenty on 08/21/2016:
I hope there's some alternatives when you are avoiding the crap food...that's what always gets me thru - or i plan to bring some things. :-D sounds like a really nice time with friends, family & music. So glad for no pain on your end.

Good morning. Yesterday I ran for about 2 miles. A Lap and a good chunk of track. I did NOT stretch out like I should have before starting. I just wasn't thinking. After the first lap I asked myself what would keep me from going around the track again. I breathed in real good. So I knew my lungs could take it. I had beets for breakfast so I know I had gas in the tank. But the calf muscles in my legs were beginning to hurt. I kept going a good chunk and listened to my legs. Yep ! They were getting sore with each impact. And my impact isn't much. I think my sneakers clear the asphalt about 1/4 inch with each step. So I stopped and walked back to the truck. It was a good sweat with good tunes in my headphones. I'm not "sore" at the moment but I'm gonna wait 3 days (Monday) before I try again. Hope everyone has a good day. Have a Healthy Day.

Diamond50 on 08/19/2016:
2 miles is great OR! You MUST take care of those muscles though and listen to your body. Injuries are simply not worth the pain and set back. Glad to hear you stopped when you did. Looking forward to hearing about Monday when you try again. In the mean time, have a healthy weekend!

OhioRaven on 08/19/2016:
Thanks, Five-0.

puddles on 08/19/2016:
Good job Raven knowing when to stop is always good. I am sure that every time run you will be able to go further. Take care my friend.

OhioRaven on 08/19/2016:
Just a little further,...or farther...? ? ? I don't know and I'm not looking it up.

puddles on 08/19/2016:
Raven must be my French getting in the way of the English language.... lol but you get my drift anyway.

Good morning. I got my beet juice on. Feeling great. 5 mile bike ride yesterday. Going back to the track today after work and try to improve on my last run. Going for 2 full laps. That will be 3 miles. I think the only thing that would stop me is between my ears. It's good to see the new people on here. It's good to be part of a Team. Have a Healthy Day.

Diamond50 on 08/18/2016:
Go Raven! Go Raven! Woot woot!

puddles on 08/18/2016:
Very good Raven. You have a fan group behind you on this... have a great healthy day.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 08/18/2016:
Any tips or info in regards to beets in general? You must be a beet pro now.

Yes, i always loved being part of a team also...or rather seeing the folks i know when i used to exercise at a large park (1 time around was 1.5 miles). I still see some of those regulars :-D around town & on facebook! so nice to always be able to catch up with good people and see like-minded people doing their thing.

Good morning. No exercise last night. I had too many stops to make after work. I'm ready for a Bike ride today. My legs are still a little sore. But I'm still greatful my knees are holding up. I just have to remember not to put them into any weird angles. Have a Healthy Day.

Diamond50 on 08/17/2016:
Glad to hear your knees are feeling good. Have a healthy day as well OR.

puddles on 08/17/2016:
Take care of your knees Raven. Don't overdo it.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 08/17/2016:
with walking and running, i would say do it 3-4 times a week, most.

Horn_of_plenty on 08/17/2016:
and if you are sore, it means REST. do not work out a body part if it is sore. let the muscle grow, just stretch when sore, then workout when it feels better.

i even took a day off the gym this week (too tired and sore)

OhioRaven on 08/17/2016:
Hey, HP. Couldn't respond earlier. Work got in my way. I rode my bike 5 miles today and I'm just a weensy bit sore. I'm wanting to jog after work tomorrow. But I'll do like you said and stretch out really good. Thanks for the Great advice. You never steer me wrong. I'm glad to have you and the rest of the group here in my life. See ya.

Duaa123. on 08/17/2016:
Take care of urself.. have a good day

Good morning. Yesterday I found the track they are going to use for the 5K on September 10th. It's 1.5 miles for one lap. I did one full lap before walking to my truck. My legs are a little sore but not bad at all. I'll try again in a couple days. Going bike riding after work. Hope everyone is good and Have a Healthy Day.

grannyannie on 08/16/2016:
Good morning! Good job on the run. Sounds like a good day.

Horn_of_plenty on 08/16/2016:
Little by little, you shall be fine. And you do a lot of walking at work right?

so on the day of the 5k, make sure you do stretching (if you do) and rest up before it so you are really energized.

Good work.

Diamond50 on 08/16/2016:
Way to go on the running the lap OR. We will be cheering you on along the way while you prepare and of course even more so come race day!

puddles on 08/16/2016:
You sound like you are pretty determined to do that run. Good for you. Enjoy.

Duaa123. on 08/16/2016:
Good, keep going
