Terrific Thursday

Today has been brilliantly productive, I must say. I woke up feeling like a whole new woman! No nausea, no stomach pain, nothing! I guess yesterday must have been a fluke. I wonder if I pulled something doing Yoga. I was moving my buns and the Gaiam Weight Loss Yoga tape I have is pretty intense. I may have just overdone it. I feel great today!

There is only one day left in September and that means just two recipes left! Today's (which is freaking AWESOME) and tomorrow! WOW! I can't believe it! Tomorrow my mom is coming over and I have a fairly busy day at work...but the recipe will make up for everything, it's AWESOME!
