Hello my friends!!! I appreciate you taking time to read my blog.
Can you believe it’s the last day of September already? It sounds so cliche, but where has the time gone? I don’t know about you, but I plan on finishing this year as strong as I began it.
I was reviewing my 54 Before 54, and I’m amazed at how this “list” that was made during a road trip with my husband, Steven, has changed my life. I’m pleased with my progress to date and plan on accomplishing a lot in October. This is not a “to do” list that I begrudgingly do for the sake of scratching it off the list. This has been about embracing new experiences and stepping out of my comfort zone. Living life to the fullest.
I finished September by completing my 3rd StepBet – 11th since I joined 3 years ago. I keep saying, “I’m done with these StepBets- no more!” But there’s something about the personal challenge that keeps me going back for more… https://waybetter.com/stepbet#
And let’s talk about caffeine. If you know me, you know I’m a coffee lover. Actually, I’m a coffee snob. Truth 🙌🏼. I was originally going to do my 54-days caffeine free in June and I barely lasted. Realizing I was going to regret not following through, I chose to begin after Seattle, on my Dads heavenly birthday, September 23rd. This would take me to November 15th, only to realize this is my Mother-In-Law’s heavenly birthday!!! Honestly, this is HARD. Why am I doing it? I was drinking too much caffeine, and by abstaining for a short time it would give me an opportunity to explore different drinks. I’m drinking hot tea, but…. its just not doing it for me. Every tea I’ve tried ends up tasting like boiled water. So as I’m only 8 days in, when I’m feeling frustrated, I’ll offer up my sacrifice to my two angels above 😇
For the month of October, I’m going to focus on mastering soup. I made a butternut squash soup this weekend, and it was DELICIOUS!!! Tonight I’ll be trying a black bean soup. I’m looking forward to trying many new recipes. Let the kitchen adventures begin!!!
I’m looking forward to many wonderful things to come in October as we reach the final stretch into the end of the year. One thing is for sure, by the time December 31st arrives, there will be no stone unturned. I will be ending 2019 AND beginning 2020 with satisfaction. No regrets.
Imagine with all your mind ~ Believe with all your heart ~ Achieve with all your might
