"I've never really worried about my health or physical fitness. I played soccer through college, have been a vegetarian for quite some time now, and even majored in Exercise Physiology. Between balancing going back to school for a second degree, working and planning a wedding, I put my health on the back burner. I'm going to find a way to learn to balance my time and health, and I'm ready to hit the ground running!"
