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 :wink: - 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!

Thanks SeaSiren and Robert!

Sports have always been a big part of my life. As a child I also was very active in ballet and gymnastics (since age 2! :shock:) I started tennis at age 8 and played through HS.

My partner competed in aikido and judo at a very high level, and also in sailing, canoeing and climbing (he used to live in Boulder)

We are active people! :lol:

Welcome Wildflower!!!

Have fun popping around the different threads on this forum. There is tons to learn and chat about. I have a Mt biking topic in the "Other Sports" thread if you ever feel like chatting about that. I also have a German Shepherd (mixed with Rottweiler) that you can see in the Photos thread. You can post a pic of yours if you like... :)
