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.

Fitness Minutes: 264,043

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.

    One morning of missing my medication doesn't hurt, no. But I don't like to miss more than once a week. It's like SP, need to be consistent for results.

    "If I had to select one quality, one personal characteristic that I regard as being most highly correlated with success, whatever the field, I would pick the trait of persistence. Determination.
    The will to endure to the end, to get knocked down seventy times and get up off the floor saying. "Here comes number seventy-one!"

    Thank you for your comment on my blog about fearing weight loss. I am terrible at sewing. I took a few things to a seamstress (she sewed my simple wedding dress a long time ago) who didn't charge much, but she has retired. I don't like her daughter's sewing suggestions too much, so I stopped using her services. I wish I could sew! My great-grandmother was a seamstress. I just don't have the time to learn, to many other priorities.

    "Defeat may test you; it need not stop you. If at first you don't succeed, try another way.
    For every obstacle there is a solution. Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence.
    The greatest mistake is giving up."
