Hi, my name is Anja and in Feb 2009 we moved from Germany to Hawaii. My husband is in the US Army and I am originally from Germany. Before I became a stay-at-home mom, I specialized in building telecommunication networks on a world wide basis for one of the biggest telecommunication companies in the world.

My husband and I met in June of 2006 and from there we went on a fast track in the left lane of the Autobahn :o) We married in Nov 2006 and our "little monster," Charlotte Thalia, was born in June 2007. Two months ago we finally welcomed our son William Tiberius aka Ty into the world and now we are PAU :o) We are complete and happy.

Becoming a stay-at-home mom was very difficult in the first year... not only due to the fact that I went from working on a career, to staying home and taking care of a newborn but also because of being very isolated due to becoming a first time mom. When my daughter was a year old, I found the stroller aerobics in Kaiserslautern, Germany and even though Lotti did not want to stay in the stroller (still doesn't lol), I still attended and had a great time. It was the start of becoming very active and losing 50 pounds from the weight prior to being pregnant with my daughter.

Imagine... I had not really worked out since high school and that's a looooooonngggg time ago ha ha. Unfortunately during my pregnancy with Ty, I could not work out like I wanted to and ended up gaining it all back. I have 30 pounds to go until I am where I want to be and I know you ladies will help me achieve that :o). I am very excited that I found Stroller Strides Oahu and I can truly say I feel very welcomed and motivated to work out as much as my busy schedule permits. Mahalo for being such a great group! Keep pushing :o)
