Shared Fitness Tracker
I'm Sarah, and I'm newly married to my best friend! He's in the Navy, so traveling has become our life. No matter where I am in the world, living a healthy lifestyle has become a MUST. After seeing pictures of myself a few years ago and realizing what people must have thought when they saw me, I knew I needed a change. Now, if I don't workout, I feel like something is missing from my day. That's a start!
I'm down to the last 10 pounds, and my main goal is to tone up my arms, abs, shoulders, and back.
I'm doing cardio in the gym 5 days a week, and I'm doing strength training 3-4 days a week. I've started eating healthier, and watching my portions. Everything in moderation!
I'm originally from a small town in Michigan. I grew up there my whole life, and then moved to Chicago on my own when I was 22. What a great experience! Now, I'm living in Italy with my husband, and we'll be returning Stateside in January 2009:) I'm a big fan of movies - especially indie films or Oscar nominated films, I read ALL the time, I knit in my spare time, I work with a non-profit organization that helps lost and stray animals in the community, and I'm the proud mama of 3 kitties:) If you're curious about anything else, just ask!
I'm working on my degree in Humanities and Political Science. Currenty, I'm working with a non-profit group called Naples Friends of Animals. We work to reduce the stray pet population by utilizing a spay/neuter and release program, and we foster kittens and puppies until we can find them a good home. Someday in the future, I'd love to work with a grassroots organization, helping to bring light to liberal issues and urging our candidates to vote and pass bills that ensure equality to EVERYONE! I incorporate harmony and balance into every day, and I'm a continuous student of life.
