After I quickly showered, I had breakfast waiting for me in the fridge. Last night I whipped up a pumpkin Breakfast Cookie: Oats+Soy Milk+Pumpkin+Natural Whey Protein Powder+Almond Butter+Honey. I made it into a cookie and stuck it in the fridge!

This morning I topped with an egg for a little more protein, tasted wonderful!!


Gotta run! I have an early doctor’s appointment. I leave you with some beautiful pics from Skinny Bride’s wedding!!!
