I'm a vegetarian who can't cook well. I'm trying to learn how to cook, eat a healthy diet, eat less chocolate and lose weight. I'm here to find cooking ideas. I have been following Eat to Live book by Joel Furhman.
I'm finding out that when I eat mostly fruits and veggies I lose weight (I've lost over 15 pounds) and when I start eating the junk the weight comes back (hey doesn't that makes sense). And here is the best part, I'm never hungry.
I exercise 40 minutes on my elliptical, and I have been doing P90X three times a week (finished P90X and will start again sometime). I also do some exercise DVDs, lift weights and other exercise. I always need ideas for other exercise ideas.
Losing weight by eating healthy foods. Learning to cook will help.
I have been following the Eat To Live plan.
Eating lots of fruits and veggies and some beans, whole grains, nuts and seeds.
Exercise 20 minutes a day on the elliptical and 20-30 minutes with DVD cadio exercises. I also lift weights with exercise DVD's and other exercise.
I have been teaching kids to play the piano for 20 years. I like playing piano and guitar. I like to listen to rock, movie music, classical and jazz.
Scifi and action adventure movies are my favorite movies to go see.
Reading books is very fun and exiciting. It's takes me away from it all. I like scifi, action adventure and fantasy books the best.
I have been a vegetarian for 20 years. I live in Kansas.
Secrets of Success
| August SparkPoints: 13,343
I have decided to stop saying yes to people and situations that don't support my well-being. Instead, I will say..
Yes to my happiness.
Yes to my growth.
And Yes to all the people and things that inspire me to be authentic and whole, while at the same time accepting me just as I am.
My Yes from here on out is...
My pledge to LIVE HONESTLY.
My commitment to LOVE MYSELF FIERCELY..
And my cry to CREATE MY BEST LIFE POSSIBLE... YES!!!

No matter what happens, no matter how far you seem to be away from where you want to be, never stop believing that you will somehow make it.
Have an unrelenting belief...
that things will work out,
that the long road has purpose,
and that the things you desire may not happen today, but they Will happen
Continue to Persist and Persevere. - Brad Gast
Have a wonderful day!

You don't need anyone's affection or approval in order to be good enough. When someone rejects or abandons or judges you, it isn't actually about you. It's about them and their own insecurities, limitations, and needs, and you don't have to internalize that.
Your worth isn't contingent upon other people's acceptance of you. it's something inherent.
YOU EXIST, and therefore, YOU MATTER.
You're allowed to voice your thoughts and feelings.
You're allowed to assert your needs and take up space.
You're allowed to hold onto the truth that who you are is exactly enough.
And you're allowed to remove anyone from your life who makes you feel otherwise.
Have a wonderful day!!

Have you doubted your progress???
Regretted your choices???
Put yourself down???
Remember that you are doing just fine. Remind yourself right now that no matter what it looks like, you are doing the best you can and getting better.
ENCOURAGE yourself, SUPPORT yourself and CELEBRATE every little thing about yourself. - Iyanla Vanzant
