Something I want to try to be mindful of
I want to try to not eat past ten o’clock. I think it will help curb my random snacking and I feel that it will help me be more aware of what I eat. The only exception that I’ll have is water of course and caffeine free tea. One of the tea’s that I really enjoy is a brand called Yogi Tea. The flavors are delicious and the tiny affirmations that come with them are super cute.
“When the mind is backed by will, miracles happen.”

“If this is coffee, please bring me some tea; but if this is tea, please bring me some coffee.”

Allied forces fought bravely and ferociously to establish a foothold through the fighting. June 6th, 1944 was the beginning of the end of a war.
“Your task will not be an easy one. Your enemy is well-trained, well equipped and battle-hardened. He will fight savagely…I have full confidence in your courage, devotion to duty and skill in battle. We will accept nothing less than full Victory! Good Luck! And let us all beseech the blessing of Almighty God upon this great and noble undertaking.”
– General Dwight D. Eisenhower, Supreme Allied Commander
