Welcome to the start of a new week and a fresh start if you ingested more calories than you would have liked over the holiday weekend. I hope your 4th was both safe and enjoyable!

I did good. I really watched what I ate, managed to lose a few pounds and had a great time at my friends Erin and Phil out in Dyer, IN. From their porch, we could see about 6 different fireworks shows going on at once, all while enjoying Phil blow off tons more. We managed to upset Erin by bringing these cheesecake cookie things my wife made and leaving them there for her and the rest of the family to pig out on when we left. Sorry Erin! Erin and Phil are doing that PS90 or PX90 or whatever that program is that is all over the infomercial world late at night and have been doing very well with it (Phil lost 20lbs and Erin needed new jeans; I guess we ruined that!).

The next day, we reconnected with some old friends at a BBQ at Goodenow Grove in Crete/Beecher. There was tons of food and "spirits" but we had to leave early because my daughter starting freaking out about the bugs. It was a blessing in disguise though because I was hungry and might have been a bad boy. Instead, I had an italian sausage and some salad, and then some chicken later on. Good to see you Luke, Ray, Valarie, Kathy, Rick, and everyone else!!
