Good morning IP'ers! Happy 4th to those of us in the US!

We are golfing today with my parents and maybe a movie in the afternoon. I am up a little early so I should go down to the basement and do my pilates, which I haven't done since I started IP last Friday...but I don't want to. Yesterday I did 8 minutes of squats and lunges, and I can sure feel it.

Today was the first day the scale didn't move. After Friday's WI, I am moving my scales to the garage.

Happy 4th everyone!

I have been on a 2 week plateau, but stepped on the scale to see a 1 pound drop since Monday!

Today I will do a little cleaning, BBQ salmon and veggies for dinner, fireworks at dusk. It was 103 yesterday, HOT for Montana, but in the upper 80s today. So I may also do some work in the garden.

Had to harvest the last of my spinach yesterday. Now it's back to store bought spinach.

Have a fun OP day!

Good morning. Happy 4th of July to all you Americans! Have a safe and happy OP day.

Today was WI day for me, and while not fantastic I'll definitely take it. -1 lbs down. This is getting me veery close to my 1/2 way to my goal weight. I've promised myself a little mini-celebration when I get to 1/2 way.... I'd better hurry up and decide what it's going to be!

Everyone have a great day!

Happy 4th everyone! Stay strong and keep cool. Last night I went to a friends for a small get together and am proud to say I stayed 100% OP. That was nsv for me!
I had my soy puffs with me and was just happy to sit on the deck and hang with my girlfriends while our kids played in the pool.
enjoy your day peeps!
Ps I think I'm addicted to this forum. My breakfast is getting cold cause I had to check in here first. Lol

Happy 4th everyone!
I have no idea what we are cooking today, but I will be going out to the store shortly. We want to grill, but the heat is so nasty! If we grill, it will probably be something quick, like burgers or hot dogs. Chicken takes entirely too long, and it is just way WAY to hot to be hovering over a grill.

I will say this, even with the heat, I am enjoying this summer so much more than last summer. I actually worked out in my yard yesterday for the first time in years. I enjoyed it so much! I kept a chair out in the shade to take lots of water breaks, but my gosh it felt so good to be out there - among the living! LOL! It was uncomfortable this year, but it would have killed me last year. Thanks IP!!!

Y'all have a safe 4th!

Happy 4th from your neighbours to the north!!! Hope everyone has a fantastic day!

This was posted in yesterday's thread and I wanted to respond to it:

I take one tablespoon in the morning and another before bed every day. This DOES NOT replace any of my protein packs.

I think the confusion comes if you're trying to get collagen from the two IP packets that have it - the jelly and the blueberry cran granata drink. They do count as packets (because they are!) and they should only be consumed once every second day because they're missing one of the eight essential amino acids the other packs contain.

So if you're trying to get extra collagen from the packets - one every two days. But if you've purchased their liquid collagen, the sickly sweet raspberry flavoured liquid, then it's 1tbsp twice a day every day.

Hope that helps!
