My name is Sariah.  I have done a total of two fitness challenges similar to this one (including being the moderator for one of them) and have (mostly) loved it.  Both Elise Adams and Heather Herrick invited me to this challenge, and I have participated with both of them in the previous challenges!

Last June I injured my knee, which took me from a very very active lifestyle to a totally sedentary one for quite some time.  I did not adjust my eating habits, and plus I was very sad and disappointed about the whole thing, (emotional eater here people!) so I gained 30 lbs. (yes you read that right. 30)

While I am still not currently able to run or jump, or even perform a nice deep squat, I am ready to stop this out of control train before it completely derails.  While many of the types of exercises currently available to me are generally not huge calorie scorchers, something is better than nothing, right?  My goals -

1. Start to lose some of this weight
2. Continue the physical therapy meant to strengthen my knee that will ultimately allow me to do the type of activities I actually want to do
3.  Be more mindful of my eating
4. Don't let the physical limits I currently have discourage me from still getting out there and moving my body is some way

Good luck everyone.  :)  Looking forward to being a part of everyone's journey!



  1. I'm sorry to hear about your knee! Wishing you a speedy recovery!

  2. Can you swim? I am swimming Monday and Wednesday mornings, and sometimes Friday. What about deep water aerobics? We should find a good one to take together! I'm serious!

  3. I can swim. My husband is gone before 5 am in the mornings though!
