August Goals

So the last two weeks I have been focusing on many things, one being my health.

I decided that it was time to back my body and soul. For the longest I have been putting myself last and neglecting my needs. So this month is all about me. It’s all about working on myself physically and mentally.

Since the beginning of this year I have been losing weight from not only stress but depression. I stopped believing in myself and started putting myself down. So in turn my appetite was gone and my body slowly was losing muscle. It took a moment at Victoria Secret that I knew that this had to stop.

My clothes starting to becoming too big. At first it was the jeans, then it was the underwear and now it’s bras. So enough is enough! Here are some of my goals this month that will slowly leading me where I need to be.

Slowly but surely I hope to start gaining weight. Tomorrow I’ll post my meal plan for this week.

Budget Friendly Meal

Lately I have been obsessed with trying out recipes. This week I decided to try out Trader Joe’s Sriracha BBQ Chicken Skewers.

One thing that I liked about this recipe is that it is easy on the wallet.

The ingredients you need are;

  1. Boneless Chicken Breasts
  2. TJ’s Organic Sriracha & Roasted Garlic BBQ Sauce
  3. Pollo Seasoning
  4. Bamboo Skewers (recommended to soak in water)

In the end I customized the way I made the dish. What I did was get the chicken breast and chop them into cubes. Before I put them into a bowl I poke them with a knife so the TJ sauce can go into the chicken. So after putting the cubes of chicken into the bowl I pour in the TJ sauce. I just wanted the chicken lightly covered in the sauce.

After 15 minutes of setting, I get the cubes of chicken and start putting them into the screwer. To add more flavor I sprinkled the Pollo seasoning all around the meat.

Once the meat is cooked throughly you can enjoy dipping it into Sriracha for an extra kick.

I hope you enjoyed my foodie quest this week.

Let me know if you try it out yourself.
