    Good Morning Judy. I think we lost a few people.

    Weigh-In 185 wooot!!!

    No breakfast this morning. We are out of fruit. So I will drink my coffee and hope some of our people in our meeting brings fruit. They usually do. Like strawberries. We will be going shopping today too Judy.

    Kathy, grape jelly - violet. ha ha ha! You funny girl.

    I will be getting a chick-fil-a grilled chicken with tomato-red and lettuce- green today and just drink water. That will be my lunch and supper. I'll have cereal or something like that for a 6 pm snack to tide me over till morning.

    Hi , Judy.
    No, Aus I'm not lost just out for a little bit.
    We have had a bit of a scare here and I spent yesterday researching area family practitioners for my Michael. He's scared to death of doctors, and hasn't seen one in many years and now that I found one that he may like, after physically checking out several yesterday, he may have his very own pet dr .

    backstory....

    Well, we were out and I finally got him to sit at one of those bp machines...a NEW one. His bp was 170/120 which is extremely high.
    I told him I was scared for him and us and I think he got scared..... and Michael doesn't scare easily about his health.

    Not as worrysome a situation as Mardee is going through, the poor girl, but that's where I have been....

    Breakfast
    Egg and greens(spinach, onion, mushrooms)
    1 med banana

    lunch
    builders bar
    glass of unsweetened almond milk blended with a 1/2 of a fresh peach

    Dinner
    1 serving of homemade Mexican Casserole(yellow corn polenta, tomatoes, onions, black beans, ff refried beans, jalapeno peppers, green peppers, corn, green enchilada sauce, ground turkey and ff cheddar cheese.)
    Small serving of tri color broccoli slaw

    Hip was extremely twangy last night and all day so far.... thinking about just the pool and a short walk with Boog later.

    Hi Judy,
    Boy I have lots of work to do on the line of rainbow, this is a great idea. This will be a turning point for sure if I succeed in mastering the rainbow
    Since this morning everything is bread color. except for the egg and the pate. lunch was a noodle package with a mountain of lettuce and shallots.
