2019 New Year's Resolutions: Q3 Check-in

2019 New Year's Resolutions: Q3 Check-in

Posting this on the first day of the quarter, so I'm already off to a better start than last quarter! So here's how I did on my 2019 resolutions in Q3.

Supporting Causes I Care About

I've been so busy that I didn't do much on this front in the last quarter.

However, I did give to @Gillis57's GoFundMe to visit and document each ICE holding facility. From his description:

This project will create a corpus of work regarding the places, the people, communities and landscapes surrounding these facilities. I’ll do a mixed portfolio of both street photography, landscapes and micro interviews.

If this sounds like something that interests you, be sure to give him a follow on Twitter.


From my last post:

I've also started to discover that the hard part of meat free Monday is not the meat free but the Monday. Monday is usually the hardest day of the week to accomplish anything after work (I'm shocked I'm typing this on a Monday) so I'm quite frequently relying on easy favorites. I think I'll keep up a meat free day next year but it won't be Monday.


I'm ridiculously busy for the next few months. Between now and October, I have two free Saturdays. In September, I'm scheduled to fly three weekends in a row. Meat Free Monday may be pushed to mid-week as I'm in lazy recovery mode on Mondays.

Yep. It was a lot harder this quarter but I did manage to stick with on average, one meat free day per week. One of those weeks had three meat free days in it to make up for two missed weeks in a row.

Now, onto the food pics.

Beyond burger with potato salad and fruit salad from Local Foods
Jackfruit quesadillas
Garlic and herb pasta
Black bean enchiladas
Spaghetti with mushrooms and onions
Falafel and hummus from Two Apples
Penne and mozzarella salad with Super food salad w/ pineapple dressing
Shiitake carbonara

Looking forward to Q4

Again, I'm quite busy. As scheduled now, I have four free weekends between now and the end of the year. My big thing to support of Q4 will likely be the MBGC Fundraiser which benefits Make A Wish Foundation. See my pics from last year here.
