Movie snacks are typically delicious but also calorically dense. Popcorn, Kazoozles, ice cream, M&Ms – are anyone else’s taste buds salivating?

Her self-proclaimed nickname “The Lifting Flutist” honors her life’s passions of lifting and playing the flute – she’s actually a professional concert flutist! Sarah is also a single mom, in the military and is here to share her transformation story and let you know that YOU CAN DO IT!
