Sara's New Life

Welcome to my page!

I'm Sara and I joined SparkPeople in order to make a complete lifestyle change. I'm 25 and just recently got out of a 3 year relationship. The end of the relationship served as a catalyst to working on myself - and not *for* anyone else, just for my own health and happiness.

Welcome to my page!

I'm Sara and I joined SparkPeople in order to make a complete lifestyle change. I'm 25 and just recently got out of a 3 year relationship. The end of the relationship served as a catalyst to working on myself - and not *for* anyone else, just for my own health and happiness.

When the relationship ended, my life was turned upside down. When I moved into a new place, I vowed to celebrate a new beginning. My commute forced me to walk more, but helped to add much needed cardio to my routine. To help deal with the sadness I was feeling, I took up yoga and signed up for Zumba classes.

While I deal with life stress and the emotions of a break-up, I started getting into routines. I have an exercise routine and schedule and meal plans/recipes from SparkPeople have helped me continue to eat healthy.

I also have a long-standing battle with Depression. After years in therapy and this most recent hurdle in my life, I feel more in control of my illness than ever. It's not easy to deal with and I still have episodes, but I'm not just working on physical health - mental health is a priority of mine as well.

At the end of the day, my biggest goal is to be able to make myself happy and healthy.
