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.

Thanks for stopping by my page. Yes, three girls is very tough. They are all getting along now and we are just holding our breath that it lasts.
I am really trying not to eat as much carbs. I have been eating yogurt and a banana for breakfast. So far for two days I don't feel hungry.
Tomorrow is my birthday. I am going to be 57 years olf. I feel very old.

Hello, friend. Stpping by to wish you well. I'm buried under client work right now, so not too much of anything else. I will have some relief come Monday. I did pull myself away to walk for 60 minutes this morning, then came home and took a nap, lol.

How was your hike in the Adirondaks? Sounds exhiliarating and fun! emoticon

Buenos dias amiga. Thanks for the note and goodie. Hope you had a great time hiking during solstice. I ended up postponing plans and just staying inside. Heat is a challenge for me, and triple digits is quite intolerable.

Enjoy the rest of your week!

At this point in time, our garden will need an army of people just to weed it out. I guess DH and I have lots of work ahead of us LOL!
