July 4th Weekend

Well, I made it thru the holiday weekend okay.  Had several picnics to attend and a bunch of beer to drink. There's this thing called the 3 bite rule.  Basically, you can put any of those pot luck dishes on your plate that you want to try, but only have 3 SMALL bites of them.  That way you get the flavor and you don't feel like you're getting cheated from the holiday experience, but you also don't feel guilty or sick afterwards.  It worked great for me.  Hope you all had a happy and safe 4th of July!!!


  1. Shelly, you guys are doing so great! So proud of you both. I managed to break even this past week, despite two full days of sitting on my butt in the car, Chick-Fil-A on the way there, McD's on the way back, two barbecues, a baptism lunch and Janelle's brownies. All I've got to say is thank goodness for your mom's elliptical!

  2. I had Janelle's brownies too - at both picnics. Don't feel bad!
