Hello, I am new to the site and very excited about getting fitness/nutrition tips from other vegans.
I am 26 years old, and have been vegetarian since age 11. The first few years were a little on and off, but I have not eaten meat at all since age 16. A little over a year ago, I started going vegan. I am still improving on removing all animal products from my life, and feel better and better every day.
I am also getting back into lifting/routine fitness. I swam competitively most of my life, and started lifting around age 15 to help with swimming. I lifted consistantly though age 18 and since have been more on/off. I still enjoy swimming, as well as walking, hiking, and yoga. I also picked up on a few of my partner's fav activities
- cycling (mountain biking), paddling (we have 2 slalom canoes) and climbing (we just joined a gym with a climbing center - no mountains here).
Other things I like to do are camping, cooking, eating, reading, writing, watching movies, photography, and playing with our German Shepherd. I am also a bit of a techie, with an Information Systems degree (allthough I started college focusing on philosophy and photography and went on a photography scholarship). Now I work as a Project Manager in the Financial Servies Industry and live in the Midwestern US.
Well, that's my life story! Looking forward to chit-chatting with everyone and getting lots of great information!
