5K race coming up this Saturday. I read on the internet that I should rest my legs and not exercise them too much before a race. So, I'm not riding my bike into work anymore this week. Maybe I'll do push-ups or something. I dunno.

Flax seeds are great, as are chia seeds. I toss them into my smoothies and add to my muffins and protein squares. I hope you have a good one!

skinnygrlwithin on 10/17/2013:
I completely agree with the online advice... I did the same thing for the couple races I've run... I find you have a lot more energy with a couple days off!

Sorry all is not going smoothly, Ohio. Hope things look up soon.


skinnygrlwithin on 10/15/2013:
We all have our days... you've been working so very very hard... I have no doubt that you'll be right back to where you want to be in no time.


V on 10/16/2013:
Hope that all can be sorted out..Hang in there Ohio!


Umpqua on 10/16/2013:
Just looking at your last couple of entries and V has some solid advice for you. Maintaining a loss is tricky business, and you may also find that there's a "range" that works for you. I know I can't stay at 1 number indefinitely, but I've been successful at maintaining a 5-lb range and I know when I get out of that range I've got to rein it in (like right now!) I hope things improve for you on the home front.

OhioRaven on 10/16/2013:
Thanks, Coach. I'm listening.

No exercise, sat on the couch and watched the Ravens snatch defeat out of the jaws of victory. Beaten by the Packers.

Played at a bonfire, cookout, sing-along. Ate my first hotdog in about a year. It was kinda disgusting and tasty. I think I'm good for another year.

Gained this week. I don't know why but I gotta get lower and maintain.

Have a Healthy Day !

Doing great as usual! Have a great week, Ohio!


V on 10/14/2013:
Hello!! Sorry about the Raven's loss I am sure they will be back on track Sunday!

As far as the gain, maybe your body is used to the same routine as far as food goes and with your bike routine maybe you need to balance out the carb ratio and add more protein to your daily intake.. Don't get me wrong carbs are good especially the complex ones but protein is just as important even moreso after your bike rides..

Not preaching, just speaking from personal experience.. After reading an article from "Muscle and Fitness" about hitting a wall/plateau with loss/definition, I switched things up a bit by getting my complex carbs in before evening since you burn the most in the earlier part of the day..Chugging a big glass or cold water upon waking up will kickstart your metabolism as well..Don't get me wrong, fruits, popcorn,beans and nuts are good but it is more about the time you ingest them

Sorry for the mini novel but I just wanted to let you know this happens to alot of people(myself included) that eat almost the same thing everyday.. This has got you to where you are thusfar with your loss and what may have worked then may not be as effective now..Your body has already changed into a calorie burning machine so now it's time to tweak your intake..Please don't take this as me being a know it all, just offering my thoughts..

Have a great evening Ohio :)

OhioRaven on 10/14/2013:
Thanks, V. I think you're right. The Ravens will be back stronger than ever. Have a good one :v)

Sometimes these food tests are a good thing. Especially since you're so disciplined otherwise.

Good going on the ride!

Co-workers and I are having the homemade sauerkraut today for lunch. I brought in SweetPotatoes too. Someone is bringing pork or sausage or something. I'm sure I won't partake of the greasy stuff.

Have a healthy day !
