My 2 current indulgences are listed above – a big bowl of low fat popcorn and the sight of a cute pup playing with a giant rope. In fact, Atlas keeps eyeballing me and hoping that I will drop a piece of my delicious popcorn. Not a chance, furball!
Amazingly enough, these aren’t even the highlights of my day. Those would be;
1. Quickie ab workout this morning, courtesy of exercise tv..
2. A follow-up waist measurement and joyous celebration upon realizing I’ve lost an inch!
3. And an awesome new bread recipe

I used my new purchase for the egg whites – from Egg Whites International!
Happy Heidi (with this in my belly)!
Now, happy Heidi is heading to bed so that I can get up and make more highlights tomorrow! Night!
