Morning Morning Morning!

Hope everyone had a good weekend!

So my appetite is back.. Glad to be feeling on the right side of normal but gained 4lbs on the weekend because I was starving the entire time.. Hope it will correct itself out this week!
Going to try attempt to get some exercise back in and try some stationary biking tonight (since we got 5cm of snow on the weekend and I better get used to biking in doors as it seems summer will never get here!).. Wish me luck!

End of March weight: 154.5
April Goal: 149 (5.5lbs)
Non Scale Goal: Activity of some kind (walking, swimming, biking, yoga, workout) 3-5 days a week

Cheryl good job on your weight last month. I haven't been on the scale in awhile, going to do it tomorrow

Krista glad your feeling much better.

Misty - Sorry I missed this on the old thread.. Sorry about your DS.. Hope they have everything sorted out now and he's feeling better.

I am supposed to do 1 cheat night.. Always ends up being a cheat weekend.. I really need to stop it.. I would probably be at my goal by now if I didn't add 3lbs on every weekend.

Krista ty. I live on a lake and we have cookouts every weekend and that's where I really slip up. So now I'm going to try so had to get this scale moving. So I sure know what you mean about the whole weekend.

Deb I got to look for that kale salad, I eat kale alot but never seen the whole salad. Finally got my ribs cooking and the house smells so good can't wait to eat them. SS costco didn't have any for you. All our food stores carry them.

Here is the kale salad
I thought it was great..i added chicken
L/B thought it should be more of a side dish..too chewy
I think he may be right
1 bag would be good for atleast 4 meals if used as a side dish
I have the leftovers in a container in the fridge to see what is it like leftover tomorrow.

Up early Boston again today, but I don't have to go this time. Youngest DS is going with DH. Should be just a recheck this time, I hope. I have to work this morning. But up early to get DH on the road. Well new month, so plan on getting the weight loss rolling before Summer.

Deb that salad looks yummy.

Pat hope it was a great one. My girlfriend was up and is heading back today if the freezing rain and snow doesn't keep here. We had a blast and lots of hiking and walking went out. Nice out door days and yes cleats on my boots Pat. Didn't eat prefect and a bit to much wine so today is the day to once again get on track. So my goal for the month of April is to get back into the 100's again and to increase my pole walking every week as the weather gets better. Misty I hope all goes well for you DH today. Deb and Cheryl I will try and keep up this month.

Hi guys... here I am dragging in a day late again.

Deb: Thanks for always keeping the thread going and starting a new one each month. You make it very nice for us. That salad looks really good! But, the texture is something to consider... My son was eating some of the kale that was put on his dinner plate for decoration the other day. He seemed to like it pretty well.. which is a surprise since he is so picky.

I have tumbled out of the saddle over the weekend... but back on again. My washing machine burned up yesterday. It has been having trouble on spin cycle for awhile now. But the agitator quit working completely and there was a strong "burnt" smell in the room. It is 12 years old, so I am getting a new one. and a matching dryer too...
It will be delivered tomorrow, so I am clearing out the laundry room today to make space for the guys to get in and out with the washer/dryer.
I had to get up @ 3:45 this morning to get my Dad to the airport. He is taking a 28 day cruise to Hawaii, Tahiti, etc... Wish I was going to some tropical paradise islands for the next month!! We are cooler here again today, and supposed to get some severe weather tonight. Typical Spring rollercoaster.

DH Boston appointment went great, ear is healing great and has to go for a recheck May 5th. So a break for awhile. DS is coming home tomorrow, they have his blood regulated and on new meds. Now he better take them.

Deb nice warm day here too. It 52 and sunny, still to much snow to do yard work and it sure needs it.

Jo sounds like your had a great time with your friend. And of course I'm sure the scallops were delish.

V ss about the washer but getting new ones is great.Good for your Dad going on a nice get away.

Pat did you end up getting your lobster? I checked out that restaurant and it looked so nice and relaxing.
