Quote of the Day: “Don’t give up because you had a bad day, forgive yourself and do better tomorrow.” One month down (well almost) 11 more to go! So far 2021 seems to be okay…what do you think? At the beginning of January, I made a list of goals or “resolutions” I wanted to focus on for that month. How did I do? My biggest goal was to attempt the Whole30 diet.

A new year brings new resolutions. My 2020 resolutions were flushed down the toilet, like I’m sure a lot of people’s were, but I am back and here to make some new ones!
