Going In For Battle
Morning beautiful people! I am so thankful for all of you, I hope you all know that. The blogger community is such an amazing place and I feel so blessed to have so many wonderful readers and friends NHerShoes would not be what it is today without all of you!!!! Ok I just had to get that off my chest :).
I had another night of terrible sleep! I woke up at 3:30am and couldn’t go back to sleep so I stayed up for an hour plus and watched some TV. I ended up falling asleep again around 5 and getting up at 7. I am hoping that I don’t feel exhausted all DAY! Needless to say I didn’t do yoga as planned :(
For breakfast I made Cranberry French Toast, one of my favorite combinations.
Instead of milk I used Rice Nog + 1 egg and two egg whites + Pumpkin Spice
Topped with Apple Butter, Honey and Cranberry Sauce.

Question: How do you make good choices when you know you will be served dinner instead of making it yourself?
