Welcome to The Zinn Life!

My name is Sarah. I have a blog problem.  This is my third and, hopefully, my last.

Blogging is hard, especially consistently blogging.  People have told me they miss my blogs and I've missed writing them, so I've tried to get back into blogging.  But it's been hard.  I've written at least three different posts over the past few months, some drafts, one actually published.  I tried to do a recap of last year on my old blog, but that didn't feel right.  Then I tried to start a new chapter of my old blog, but that wasn't sitting well either. When I really thought about it, the old blog just didn't fit me very well anymore.  It's very specific.  I'm not just about cooking, canning and baking cakes anymore.  I still do those things, but I have other interests that currently have more presence in my life.  Now I've added a house and fitness. And a love of travel and a never ending love of pretty clothes and shoes. The Redomestication of Sarah just doesn't fit all that.

Enter - The Zinn Life. For the past eight months, I've been on this fitness/yoga journey.  I told my husband yesterday that this is not the smallest I've been, by far, but this is the best I've ever felt.  Probably the most in shape. Not the healthiest because I'm still carrying more weight than advised (such a nice way to put that). But definitely the most confident and happy with me that I have been in a very long time.  And a lot has to do with fitness. And yoga. And strength. I want to share that. 

Since I've gotten into fitness and health, I've been searching for blogs that are about fitness and lifestyle and most are written by skinny b's (please, I say this in jest. I have nothing against skinny women, it's pure jealousy).  There is nothing wrong with these blogs or with the women that write them.  I've learned a lot from them.  But they see things a little differently than I do, And that's a good thing. But I feel like there's room for another voice.  I want to talk to women like me. The size 12 and ups that like to work out, that are looking for clothes that will handle all of our assets while jumping and spinning. And talk about food - good food and healthy food, which are sometimes the same and sometimes...not.  I want to be their compliment while I'm on my own journey.  Cause women come in all different shapes and sizes, not just skinny or curvy.  

So welcome to The Zinn Life. A lifestyle blog about fitness, fashion and food. And whatever else I come up with. Hopefully this is my third and final blog. I plan to post three times a week.  I want to challenge myself with writing and, if I'm honest, keep myself busy so I don't buy as many yoga pants and shoes.  I hope to see you again soon!
