I made, analyzed, and synthesized 9 recipes for a consultation job. This had me a little "cooked out," so my husband and I enjoyed some cheese and charcuterie plates. I love a cheese board with fruits, veggies, and meats for a quick and easy dinner. Cheese boards are a great way to use leftovers and make a quick meal. They offer a great variety of foods and can make a well-balanced meal. I especially love a cheese board dinner in the Summer when it feels too hot to turn on the oven. Give it a try!
For those keeping track, this makes my new recipe count 20 out of 30.
I'm continue to attend my favorite strength-training class. The leader did this light weight, high rep circuit, and I'm was sore for a good 2-3 days after class.
I continue to update my workout playlist to encourage myself to do continue building endurance and enjoying cardio. Let me know if you have favorite workout songs. You can leave recommendations in the comments below. I'd love to hear what you listen to and what motivate you.
There was no big travel this month. But, we have some travel plans later this year. So, stay tuned!

In my free time, I've started reading and listening to podcasts more than watching television. I started reading Bread and Wine by Shauna Niequist this month. It is a book about food and gathering people. It also features some of her recipes. I'm really enjoying this book. I like this book so much that I got two of her other books to read next.
For those keeping track, my book count is 2 in 2016.
These are my broad goals for 2016. What goals are you working on in 2016?
