    Hello @Lovely Cat Lady
    How are you this evening?
    I have had a pretty good evening so far and am enjoying chatty Tuesdays, going to make it a part of my routine while i'm here on the forums.
    I cooked a very nice omlette and only around 10% of it fell apart, so i'm slowly getting the hang of them.

    Hi @Menz199, I'm doing well, thanks. Just trying to keep warm and dry because its been raining all day and its quite cold outside. How are you? Glad to hear your day is going good so far. Yes, it's really nice having you join in on Chatty Tuesdays. :D Oh, yummy. Surely it tastes the same in one piece or a couple of pieces, LOL. :cool:

    I'm going well thanks, yes it tastes the same, but feeling great as I'm slowly mastering it.
    Aside from being tired as I said before, today was quite good, work was very busy, I pushed myself to go for a run after work, which was very exhausting but was fantastic. I am finally willing and ready to make it part of my routine, just in the afternoons instead of the morning.

    How was yours?

    Mastering of any sorts is usually very nice, the feeling of accomplishment when you're getting better at something out of mere practice. :); You like cooking @Menz199? What are your specialities?

    Oh, good job! Setting yourself up to succeeding in your next goal. Sounds like the evenings are going to be a much better option for you than the mornings. :cool: It's true, pushing yourself through at first can be exhausting. But the feeling afterwards is amazing and it ultimately impacts positively on your mental health. :o

    Yes I used to always help Mum in the kitchen when I lived at home. Since I've moved away, I never do much cooking, I normally just buy frozen meals and stuff you can just throw in the oven, I can be quite lazy sometimes haha. I have no specialties when it comes to cooking and when I do, I normally make a big mess.

    But I'm slowing trying to cook at least once a week now. Tuesday's omelette night for now. I did actually cook some sausages and vegetables last Wednesday and did buy a few ingredients on Wednesday and was planning on trying think of a simple dish involving tuna. But the next day was when I was went to self-isolation so had to settle for frozen meals and fast food. As I couldn't be in the kitchen for too long. (I'm in a share house)

    But this week I'm keen to try more.

    Thanks, it's come as encouragement from a friend which has helped. If I don't run I am still going to do a quick walk after work. Yes it can be exhausting but very rewarding. Just got to make a habit of it and stick to it. :D

    It's hard cooking every day amongst everything else, the frozen meals are a very practical solution. Haha, guess a mess is a speciality too. All I can cook without burning the kitchen are quesadillas (and I still burn them slightly), so I'm not one to judge anyone's cooking skills, LOL. A friend recommended me to get some meals boxes delivered online that already include all of the ingredients you need and instructions, etc. I'm going to give that a try, I'll let you know if it works out. :D But it's hard, in general, from choosing what you'll make, to buying what you need and then actually doing it before the ingredients go bad.

    It's really great that you're setting new habits for yourself. Chatty and Omelette Night Tuesdays, sounds like a good combo! ;); I'm happy to hear you've got good mates, how awesome that they're encouraging you. Amazing! That's a very realistic goal, and even if you don't run, a quick walk is much better than none at all. That's it @Menz199, fantastic attitude! :cool:
