Name: Sarah R.
Location: Washington State
Job: Interning as a clinical engineer/support on hospital tactical team (IT, IS, and networking)
2. Highest Weight? Lowest Weight?
My highest weight was around 170-172. It fluctuated. I gained a lot of weight from eating unhealthy food from the hospital I was interning at. Getting macaroni and cheese, lasagna, ham and other things. All very salted and processed. Soon after I lost about 10 lbs by eating salads and oatmeal and watching what I ate.
My lowest weight (since I was 13) was 110. Before 13 I never knew what it was like to be overweight. Which is why I call it my lowest weight.
3.Who is Dan?
Dan is my awesome, nerdy, handsome, tall, big booty, hazel eyed, goofy, silly boyfriend. He is 24 :) 4 year difference, but we rarely feel it. He loves supernatural (he hates my shipping of destiel), LOTR, The Hobbit, HP, Sherlock, video games, reading, guns, politics (right winged libertarian as well), animals, and food.
This is him:
We met on an online dating site called OKcupid. You’ve probably heard of it. It is definitely true that there are weirdos on that site. I met one before Dan, and he took my v-card all while being a complete and utter asshole. Different story for another time. But Dan was that typical guy who told me immediately “we have to meet within a week otherwise you will put me in the friendzone. It happens to me a lot”. With us, it was instant connection. First date was amazing and we became official that same night. I’ve never regretted it since. He is my true other half that I somehow found in this crazy world. Also, pictures do not do him justice. Just…fyi haha. Anyways, we were both those type of people that never get out and stay at home. Without the internets, we would have never found each other. In case you were wondering, we’ve been together since Sept 09, 2011. He motivates me in every capacity, I can be my complete weird self around him (and he loves it), he thinks I am so sexy even though I’m overweight, and if I hadn’t met him….I would be so lost. I don’t even want to think where I would be without him. Also, he has the most amazing booty I’ve ever seen on a white guy. It’s round, juicy and probably has black origins. Derp.
Yes! Samson :) My 2nd boyfriend. The original. He is my companion everywhere I go in my house. I used to take him running.
He is a cavalier king charles and he is 6 years old :) Almost 7. Cutest puppy on the planet. He has many nicknames. They are chow, crow (pronounced crwow), broccoli rob chow, puppy chow, chowly row, puppy samson, truffle chow, perching chow, le samson samson and others. It’s ridiculous.
I’m just running and taking it day by day. Sometimes I’ll do yoga, workout videos on Comcast ondemand or ripped in 30.
I don’t count calories since it’s really hard for me determine the exact amount. I’ve gotten into the bad habit of eating unhealthy, but I’m doing my best to get back to simple clean meals.
Meals like an egg white scramble with diced ham, onions, and bell peppers with whole wheat toast.
Snacks: apple slices with peanut butter, orange with whole wheat crackers, mozzarella cheese sticks, whey protein shake, banana with almonds
Lunch would be either a salad with some type of meat like chicken. Turkey sandwich, soup with fruit or something not super duper heavy.
Dinner would be protein with veggies. Like baked chicken with steamed broccoli.
That’s my way of eating clean. Keeping it simple. Only way to hold onto a good habit.
7. Things I love?
Supernatural, HP, Sherlock, HP, Doctor Who, IT Crowd, The Office, Parks & Rec, Big Bang Theory, HIMYM, cross stitching, knitting, reading, running, walking my dog, being outside, wearing beautiful colors, sex (going to be honest here, Dan sticks me good and I love it like a greasy grilled cheese), collecting antique books, watching classic old movies (1940s to 1960s), and making things.
When it comes to shipping, my OTP is Destiel. There is just something so beautiful about their love story. It’s not about being gay for each other, but loving another human being and sharing a bond. I ship johnlock too.
8.How did my fitblr get started?
I was following Alexis Doss (askandyoushallfeel) for the longest time and she was talking about eating healthy and being in shape. I didn’t know fitblrs existed. I went to tumblrs featured blogs and found some “fitspo” blogs. I followed it down the rabbit hole. Feb 8th, 2012 is when I made this blog. It’s been a rollercoaster that is still twisting and turning and dropping and rising. One day it will even out and the ride will finally end.
9. Anything else I should know?
Erm, nothing really. If you want to ask anything, my ask box is always open.
