introducing myself...

#1 Postby andesuma » Mon Jun 05, 2006 11:35 pm

Greetings!
I am new to the forum(per recommendation from Robert), and wanted
to introduce myself..

This seems like a very open and informative place, so hopefully
we can all gain something from one another.
: )


My name is Courteney, and I am vegetarian since birth(raised),
vegan since the age of 11(going on 11 years now), and mostly raw
for almost 3 years(I tend to fall in the 80-90% raw range)..
Still improving myself and my diet however I can.

As far as fitness goes...
I grew up a dancer(12 yrs->ballet, modern and jazz), and a swimmer,
I practice yoga, and am a certified STOTT Pilates instructor.
Have recently gotten into running and cycling as well... and would
love to excel at those!
I am very much in love with strength training, resistance training and building my endurance.
I have many fitness goals, and am hoping this place can help me
in that area of my life...



nice to meet you all!

Welcome Courteney!

Two new people from Portland just today :) I love this place!!!! We also had another person from Portland join a few days ago.

Great to have you here. You have a really awesome vegan and athletic background so you'll feel at home here with hundreds of other vegan athletes and others interested in veganism and/or fitness.

Yes, please do join us for our Vegan Vacation which will be taking place in Portland!

We look forward to hearing more from you, welcome aboard!

No human can call themselves liberal or radical or even a conservative advocate of fair play, if they contribute in any way to the pain and suffering of other beings.

Hi, andesuma!

Wow, you are in shape! I wish I had the patience to do pilates :? And I wish I had taken ballet and tap like my sisters did when they were growing :(

I'm also raw :)

Welcome! :blob3:

loveliberate -- Yes! yes I will be there!


robert -- thanks! and yes I will be making plans to go to the Vegan
Vacation in August, it sounds great!


_raVen_ -- aw..well I think all of my years of dance made Pilates come
incredibly natural to me... but there are SO many forms and levels you can work at, you really have an amazing variety... if you have any questions at all, just let me know... : )



thanks everyone for being so welcoming!
