Where’s the Crust Pizza

Healthier Overnight French Toast Bake

Weight Loss Journey – Day 52

As mentioned last Friday, I did start the Harley Pasternak workouts once again this morning!  It felt really good to get that first 32 oz. of water down as well.  When I started work this morning, I did pick out my two snacks for today – whether I ate them or not I didn’t know…
