Thanks for commenting on my blog. I tried to find the article again and couldn't. I know now that when I quote, I should give credit for where the information came from. I even copied in part of the quote and had a lot of hits, but none of the articles looked familiar. Wish you the best on your journey to becoming a healthier you. 2284 days ago
RE: cooking skills...NO you aren't a lost cause! Up until I was 20, the limit of my cooking at home, was eggs and toast...Maybe a baked mac and cheese here and there, and easy stuff-like hamburger helper or spaghetti. I don't include working in fast food joints because it doesn't take a genius to feed burger patties into a mechanical grill or put fries in a fryer and hit a button or boil meat and cheese in bags in an industrial sized boiler... When me and my df got our first apartment, he showed me how to cook, and I just kind of took what he taught me and ran with it. Start with recipe books. If you have a friend that knows how to cook, have them there with you to help walk you through the first few times. It may take some practice, OR it may come naturally! You never know! But no, you are TOO young to be a lost cause in the kitchen! Peace!
THANKS so much for stopping by my blog and for the words of encouragement!! I'm feeling really good about my decision to start over. I'm not dwelling on past mistakes, just looking towards a successful future -~- one that includes seeing my goals in sight. 175 here I come!!! P.S. WELCOME to Spark People! I think you picked a great site to continue down your path of happiness and healthiness!! 2351 days ago
yeah - i get out hiking at least once a week while the weather's nice. in the summer i'll probably switch over to indoor rock climbing because, lets face it 4 am is way too early to be out and about lol
but the places i go hiking are staying open, they're just closing the really fun ones, like Red Rock state park and Lost Dutchman State Park. 2358 days ago
