July 4th food suggestions

      Heard to believe that today is the last day of June. The year is officially half way over. So, I'm one of those people that like holidays for one reason: the food. Given, there are some holidays that I like for reason besides food, but food is a common denominator with most of them. With July 4th this weekend, I thought I would share some different side and desserts. I mean, who doesn't love sides or desserts:

I have a small love potatoes if you didn't figure that out from two of the sided. I might make one or two of the items this week. We'll see though. Until next time, Peace & Blessings all!!!

Summer Strawberry Treats

 With the official start of summer a few days away, I've been wanting to make something with strawberries for some reason. In all honesty, it probably has to do with the big bag of strawberries I've got in my freezer as I write this. I went to Food Network to try to see what they had & here were a few of my favorite ones:

Berry Trifle

Strawberry-Cucumber Water

Strawberry Bellini

Now, some of these require no cooking at all (the infused water) & some you do have to cook. I think it was a fair mix of drink & desserts. All of theses would be great for any of the summer holidays or entertaining during the warm season. A recipe of something I made will be up soon so be on the lookout for that.

Until then, Peace & Blessings all!!

June 2021 Goals

      So, I just realized that I didn't post any goals for May. I made a list of goals but didn't write one down so. But anywho, it's now officially June. I do have goals for this month. Many of them all in the area of other goals from previous months. Between still trying to find a job & other things, I haven't been keeping up on task that I set for myself. Here are my main goals for June:

Be more active

I've been switching between strength training (to tone up) & cardio (to try to burn some fat). So right now, I'm in my toning up stage. I'm trying to be up & moving more too during the day. I've figure out how much I need to move to lose some of the weight I put on. Between stress & waiting for my new thyroid medication to kick in, I'm just trying to not be sitting all the time.

Reduce Stress

This is one of the main reasons that I've gained weight. I tend carry stress in my body, in particular in my back/shoulder/neck area. I've been trying to stretch more before & after working out. I've also been journaling regularly along with meditating. I'm trying to find other options as well to see if it helps with removing some of it.

Read More

One of my goals from a previous month. I'm trying to stay on top of all the books that I have piled up on my coffee table right now (8 books to be exact). The ones that I've read so far have been pretty interesting. I can't wait to finally finish the stack so I can finally share them with everyone.

Cutback On Technology

In the last year, I've been on my computer/phone/social media WAY too much. I'm have been sitting a timer on my phone to not look at it as much. I think I'm going to try to get off my computer & phone an hour before I go to bed to see if that helps me sleep better. 

I will see how all these goals work out since I've been a slacker of late. Hopefully, I can share a positive update at the beginning of July/end of June. Until then Peace & Blessings, all!!
