Mary, a word of advice...

You want the butter (real butter not that maragrine crap) to cover the entire top when it melts so it makes a crust instead of a powdery mess. flatten it with your hand before topping with butter, try to not leave too many "hills and valleys". make sure the butter is COLD b/c it's too difficult to slice when soft and it makes a mess. I cut it straight down in thin (about the thickness of construction paper) and layer them end to end. If you cut it thin, 1 stick should be plenty, you could probably get away with less.

Quickest check-in ever...

I'm alive, I'll report yesterday's and today's food tonight -- work sucks, and I totally fell off the wagon today. They brought in CHEESECAKE to celebrate my birthday

Sheila, I don't know about any apps, but I downloaded songs to my MP3 player, 2 medium fast (warm up), 3 fast, 1 slow, 3 fast, 1 slow, 3 fast, well you get the idea. I usually step to the beat of the music, so that's my program for walking.

I'm going to continue being good today, though my heart's not in it. I've been good as gold for a week and been bouncing up and down the same half pound, no real progress. Today is up . In my head I know I'm doing the right thing and it'll happen, but it's hard to feel it.
How about a cake pan in the shape of a big butt? Less misuse and more to the point.

My heart's not in it either, got into some cheese puffs. I used to hate them, but today they tasted really good. The good news is I got in that workout and I've been fairly good outside the cheese puff incident.

Is this an app? I've not downloaded anything called "words with friends". I like word games, am especially good at Boggle, Moxie and Scrabble. I might just have to accept that challenge Mr. Reign of Terror.

I don't know about the rest of you ladies, but this just makes me want to slice up a stick of butter and see if I can get it to cover a cake. Food porn police where are you?

Thank you, I keep hoping that in my real life I will be able to break out into song and dance (without getting odd looks) just like in a musical.

yep it's an app, they have a free and a $1.99 version. It's like scrabble. Let me know if you get the app and I'll tell you my username, or you can give me yours and I can send you the request.
