It’s Hump Day! This whole having Monday off thing really has me thrown a bit, but man am I glad we are half way through this week.  It also means, it’s time to get your party face on!  I followed Jenn’s advice this week, and made sure that I vegged it up for WIAW Breakfast #1 was actually just pre-workout fuel.  I don’t know how some people get up and workout without eating first.
