Veggie Egg Cups

Veggie Egg Cups

I officially ended my 21 Day Fix program yesterday.  I am down 7 pounds and 7.5 inches.  The best part is that I have learned how to eat better and with portion control in check.  Most of you by now realize that my day starts at the butt crack of dawn.  Sorry, but it's true!  In order to get the proper nutrition and start off on the right foot, … Read More...
