3.) FAVORITE QUOTE: “The first place we lose the battle is in our own thinking. If you think it’s permanent then it’s permanent. If you think you’ve reached your limits then you have. If you think you’ll never get well then you won’t. You have to change your thinking. You need to see everything that’s holding you back, every obstacle, every limitation as only temporary.” ~Joel Osteen

In other words, this too shall pass. I say that to myself at least once every day. It’s definitely a good reminder!

9. EASY RECIPE: Cheesy Roasted Asparagus—Preheat the oven to 400 °. Put one pound of washed and dried asparagus on a foil-lined rimmed baking sheet. Sprinkle with 2 TBS olive oil, 2 minced garlic cloves, 1/4 tsp salt, and 1/4 tsp pepper and toss. Arrange the asparagus in a single layer. Roast the asparagus in the oven for 7-9 minutes until it begins to soften. Meanwhile, mix 1/2 cup of Mozzarella cheese and 1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese together. Remove the asparagus from the oven and sprinkle the cheese mixture over the middle of the asparagus, only leaving the top and bottoms without cheese. Return to the oven and finish roasting for 6-8 minutes until the cheese is melted and golden. Serve immediately.
