Intentions for the Week

Intentions for the Week Workbook by Tracy Benjamin now on sale!

Intentions for the Week- Week 16 in 2024

Our weekend started with a baseball game (we won!), and dinner out with friends.  My oldest brother came over and spent the night. I made portobello mushroom burgers (vegan version for him!) and hosted Self-Check-In!  I did a small meal prep since I had company.  I’ll take a picture of it tomorrow. 

It’s Sunday night and I wanna rest, so let’s make this quick! 

Here are my Intentions for the Week.
