Hi There and Welcome to The Healthy Fit Diva. My name is Sarah and I’ll be your guide along this journey. I’m starting this blog to chronicle my thoughts (well maybe more like rants at times) on all things health and fitness related. Seeing as we don’t know each other too well yet I thought I’d intro myself with a few random facts:
Occupation: Student (exercise & sports science), Pilates instructor and PT
Exercise: Love it all!!! Actually I’m not very good at sitting still for too long (i just get BORED). I do something physical like walking pretty much everyday and go to the gym about 4 times a week.
Cardio or Weights?: Definitely weights cuz I feel so strong after. I used to loooooove doing spin but seem to have lost enthusiasm in recent years. Who knows maybe I’ll take it up again.
Pilates or Yoga?: Both, but i have more practice in Pilates. I find they are both very calming and great for flexibility.
Foods I love: Oatmeal (well more of an obsession really!), carrots, peanut butter, and hot chocolate
Foods I loathe: Brussel sprouts, and oysters (seriously who wants to eat a big ball of slime…just saying)
Vice: I’m a magazine whore (my family can vouch for this…I have a bookcase full of them). My favourites are Oxygen, Clean Eating, HFG, and of course some fashion or cheesy gossip mags (after all a girl does have to keep up with ‘current affairs’)
TV: Jersey shore – I used to hate it but now I can’t miss an episode. I think reality TV is a lot like a watching a train wreck in slow motion….you know it’s bad and you shouldn’t watch, but you just can’t help yourself.
Movies: If I had to pick a favourite it would probably be Forest Gump. I like watching movies but have a really hard time staying awake (I put this down to the dim lights and comfortable chairs).
Clothes: I’m usually hanging out in my favourite workout gear (Lululemon) and sneakers. But if it’s for a night on the town I’m all about donning some ridiculous high heels and a sexy dress.
Quotes: ‘If it were easy, everyone would do it!’
‘As we think, so we become’
‘No matter what the past, the present offers a new beginning’
‘Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice’
So there you go…a little about my merry self. Over time I hope I get to know some of you lovely people as well. I’m off to attack a snack so take care until next time!
