Hi, I am Sarah. I am31 years old and live in Maryland, but I was born and raised in Wisconsin. I'm single with no kids, except I have my studly pug who is my best buddy and a super great boyfriend.
I moved to Maryland in January of 2011. It isn't a bad place, just different. I have always been a little heavy, but my office job has assisted in my getting heavier and I decided 1-9-2012 that is had to stop.
In case you missed it in my name, I adore Disney and bright colors. I love all things happy and optimistic. I am a hopeful realist is the best way I can describe my general day to day outlook.
I have bins of clothes hidden under my bed in various sizes, so I am trying to get into the smallest sizes I can (healthy sizes). My secret dream is to one day be able to buy a bikini (okay so it isn't a secret now that I've told my page) but I've always been shy and self-conscious, it would be nice to change it up once ;)
My overall goal is to get to a healthy weight, and learn as much about myself as I can along the way. I have a lot to lose, and numerous ways to grow as a person.
I try to focus my goals on behaviors. I will consider the goal achieved when I hit a 1 month streak.
1st, learn to track
2nd, learn balance to stay in range
3rd, Focus on that water
4th, Start adding in 1 workout a week
5th, consistent meal planning
6th Start adding in 2 workouts a week
7th, start adding in 3 workouts a week
8th, start adding in 3 work outs a week plus 1 cardio day
9th, Start adding 3 workouts a week, plust 2 cardio days
10th, be the person I've wanted to be for years.
