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.





Member Since: 8/13/2009

Fitness Minutes: 268,003

My Goals:
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.


My Program:
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.



Personal Information:
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.


Other Information:
I have been a vegetarian for 20 years. I live in Kansas.

    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.

    Don’t simply exist in this world, but grasp life’s potential by the jacket.
    Dare it to be all it can.

    Make life historical.. a gripping account of accomplishment.
    Make life a mystery.. a challenging, bold adventure.
    Make life heartfelt.. an enduring, poetic romance.

    Whatever it is you make of your world, live the fairy tale.” - Richelle E. Goodrich


    Have a great month! emoticon
