Hi everyone!

My home consists of an awesome husband, a gorgeous American Bulldog (Sarge), Border Collie (Scrat), and cat (Gabby)..all rescues! I love all animals and am forever rescuing or finding homes for strays.

A little about me:

Clerical day job/certified Natural Health Consultant/Professional Artist (painter); animal lover. I'm a longtime FS member, and am in maintenance. I have a new blog, where I write about my art and also some of my recipes. It's, in case anyone is interested. I also love fast cars and Nascar.

Vegetarian/Mediterranean for 16 years

Kickboxing, PiYo, Pilates, Zumba, Barre, cardio, resistance, kettle bell

My goal is to continue my healthy way of eating. I choose the vegetarian/vegan lifestyle because I believe it is the healthiest WOE for ME, and also for my personal ethical reasons. It's also a smart choice for my husband, as he has type 2 diabetes. You will see lots of veggies and fruits on my food log...when I don't stroke out when you see the carbs, LOL. I'm probably one of the few here who is not a low-carber, but prefer a plant based diet. I think it's really important to incorporate exercise with healthy's good to move your body. I love FS for logging my foods and exercise, and will still be here even after I reach goal.

I'm a supportive person, and buddies are welcome!

Good luck on your journey!

Agree with Steven. I've had several 'members' try to market to me on my journals. The delete button is handy.
