Don’t be alarmed. It’s not what you think. I realized tonight that I am just beginning a lifelong trek to change my eating and exercise behaviors. So, this is indeed the new normal. Not a “diet” or a weight loss program. Of course, I’m still working toward my 50% off goal, but it is in the longer context of a lifelong transformation and subsequent improved qualify of my life.
My daughter saw a nutritionist this summer. She told her, “Try not to eat anything that you can’t recognize where it came from.” Good advice. I need to learn how to cook. That’s next on my todo list. I also need to learn how to use proper kitchen utensils. Even fancy kitchen machinery, such as a Cuisinart. Of course, I have one, but have no idea what to do with it. I’m also interested in juicers, but I hear they are expensive. I met with a group of woman-folk friends last night who said Whole Foods and Central Market give cooking classes. I know Central Market holds a class on knives alone. I really need a “Cooking for Dummies” class.
