For Myself

I need to take care of myself for myself, but I know that it impacts my three daughters.
I've worked in professional kitchens since the early 1970's. Food is a major part of my life. Being a woman in a male dominated field was a struggle back when I started. Being an older woman in a physically demanding industry is a struggle too. I enjoy the struggle. I enjoy the long hours, the heat, the noise. The food.
In my early 50's my metabolism started to slow down. Whoops.

Other Information:
The year that I turned 50 I went on my first hike. My husband is a big hiker, and I wanted something else to share with him. Since then I've been hiking to celebrate all our 'milestones' - birthdays, anniversaries, holidays. Living in up state NY, we do a lot of Adirondack hikes, but we also hike in the Shawangunks and the White Mountains of NH.

Nancy, Thank you so much for reeling me into the SP site. I've been so darn busy I'm beyond overwhelmed.

This is very time consuming for me at this time to be signing into SP.

If you were here you'd scream at what I'm doing with my hands, back, time, labors, and my mind. lol

I think of you a lot. Hope you are all right. Is the weather ever going to get WARM?

Linda

Ha ha! Yes, of course I eat lunch. LOL! If I go to the gym at lunchtime I usually eat my lunch when I get back while I'm at my desk. I usually have a little snack before I go to the gym too. Just during the lunch hour, I like to go to the gym as it's less crowded and I am not waiting to use the rack or benches or weights. :-)

How interesting about your trainers. I was working w/ both Lynne & Sean for a few weeks, but Sean is no longer training people so now I'm working w/ Lynne all the time. What's neat though is that during my own strength workouts, I can combine stuff I've done w/ Lynne with stuff I've done w/ Sean. It all works out pretty well.

Our snow is gone from our yard. There were a few places where the fields and woods meet and where it had drifted into the dips in the fields left.
