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.

Hi, hope the weekend is going well! Its sunny and warm here, but it is the desert. We are in the mid 80's now! Last week was a little bad for walking and exercise but tomorrow is a new day so its a fresh start to the week definitely. How are things with you?

Its true lack of sleep can be a bad thing for me because then my choices can be bad with food, too carb happy definitely! Anyhow, I am back on track and feeling pretty fine. Have a good weekend~
