With the coming new year comes new goals, aspirations and resolutions we aspire to achieve. However most times we fall short because many of these resolutions are not sustainable long term. Why not try committing to a 30-Day challenge. These small challenges allow you to open up your mind to new possibilities and ways of being.
Committing to something small for 30 days is a lot easier than trying to immediately commit to something new long-term 30 days can put you well on your way to making something an actual ingrained habit.
My plan in 2019 is to try to start by committing to a 30-Day Self Care Challenge. My focus for 30 days is centered around mind, body, and spirit.

The key to success in any weight loss journey is not depriving yourself a treat. I had a sweet tooth and cheesecake sounded good at the moment but when I looked up the calorie counts for a single slice of Cheesecake Factory Original Cheesecake I quickly resigned that thought. A single slice of cheesecake contains 707 calories, 29g of saturated fat, 425 mg of sodium and 62 g of carbohydrates.
I stumbled upon this Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries that hit the spot.
- Beat cream cheese, stevia, and vanilla extract together in a bowl until smooth; spoon into a piping bag or a resealable bag with a corner snipped.
- Fill cavities of cored strawberries with the cream cheese mixture. Dip filled side of strawberries in the crushed unsalted nuts (optional).
