Let Your Freak Flag Fly...

Good Morning!

My weigh-in was pretty anti-climactic this morning...I stayed the same! I'm good with that, I halfway expected a gain, as my head just wasn't fully in the game this past week. Between coming off a few real PUSH weeks and work, a couple distracting injuries....I was pretty much runnin' on vapors. Glad my body understands that I need a break...

Going to hammer out a few hours of work and then Cindy & I are heading to the pool. We got some really nice planters potted up yesterday, here are a few pics:

I really am enjoying taking care of our flowers this year, very cathartic for me to work on them on our patio and just let my mind relax. Hope everyone has a really fun & safe holiday weekend, time to take it easy for a few days. Ryan

    When I saw your pictures, I really liked the smaller flower in the boxes (purple, red and peach ones) - I had never seen them before.

    I was at Lowes yesterday and they had them in hanging baskets!!!! So I picked one up. Still don't know what they're called but I really like them!

    I've always thought of gardening, especially when its with flowers - as good medicine. Nice work, your patio looks gorgeous & so alive! Have a great weekend Ryan, get some sun & keep moving forward. All good things will come with time.

    I wish I knew your secret I bought from a reputable green house but our flowers are not doing well at all. I think Mother Nature is drowning them.
    Enjoy those beautiful blooms and stay with your program is is obviously working for you. Pat in Maine.

    The flowers are beautiful. I've been working a lot on my gardening since I have lost some of my weight. And, today, like for you yesterday, I weighed in the same! I also was sort of expecting a bit of a gain and feel very, very happy to be able to stay the same. It just makes me that much closer to the next pound or two lost! You are doing an awesome job and please know that even though I don't comment regularly I am following you and really rooting for you!

    Beautiful flowers! I so wish I had the ability to tend to a garden or flowers like that, but unfortunately if they aren't barking or whining I forget.

    Your flowers are just gorgeous. You must really enjoy sitting on your patio with all that beauty around!!!

    We're trying our first vegetable garden in this house. Unfortunately, I don't have a green thumb, so it's a struggle.

    Have a great weekend.
