2016 Goals
Try 30 new recipes. 

In October, I tried a few new recipes including:

  • Vanilla and pumpkin scones
  • Shredded beef and bell peppers for soft tacos
For those keeping track, this makes my new recipe count 28 out of 30.

Build endurance and strength.
I'm still loving my strength class. I created another playlist of music for motivation for cardio, and I'm glad to say it's helped me look forward to gym days. There are times when I'm busy and working out doesn't seem to fit in to my schedule, but I know physical activity is beneficialWhat keeps you motivated? Comment below.
