For Myself

I need to take care of myself for myself, but I know that it impacts my three daughters, they learn what they see, right?
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 as a line cook in a high volume fine dining restaurant. 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. ...

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.

Yes, my grip is improving on account of the hangs we are working on and the staggered farmers' walks. It's great to see the improvement.

I don't do any weight for split squats yet due to my knee. I have squat to a mat as well because I am not able to go very low due to the knee. Working on it though and it is very challenging for me nonetheless.
