Healthy, Active, Balanced!

Hi, my name is Merritt and I'm ready to get fit!!! I have been active and pretty healthy most of my life. I do enjoy a little too much wine and chocolate, but I certainly eat my fruits and veggies. I have been living in Africa for the past 2 years and did not have access to a gym or all the foods that I would have liked. Now that I am back in the States, I have no excuses... Its time for me to get fit, eat well, and be the best me that I can be.

So I thought I would start this ...

So I thought I would start this new journey of mine on SparkPeople. I was a sparker years ago, but I really only checked a few blogs and tracked my food at times. This year I'm going to really get my Spark on. I want to start blogging for accountability and do this right! I'm looking forward to my new journey!

Where are you living in Tanzania? I spent a while there in 2007 but was mostly on Zanzibar and Pemba islands. I definitely feel your pain with trying to exercise and eat healthy there... it is almost impossible. After a few runs in skirts I decided it just wasn't worth it anymore and mostly stuck to yoga while I was there. The food is delicious but sooo unhealthy.

I'd love to hear more about where you are and what you're doing. I miss Tanzania big time but the lifestyle is pretty difficult. Good luck with staying fit and healthy!
