I’m Amanda. I started this blog when I was a 21 year old student and self-proclaimed fitness addict. I began my fitness journey as a sophomore at college, when I gained a significant amount of weight and finally felt fed up with how I looked. I wanted to make a change. A few friends introduced me to the world of weightlifting, and ever since, fitness has become an integral part of my day-to-day life.
I’ve been lifting weights and educating myself on fitness and health for over 4 years now. I also began practicing brasilian jiu-jitsu in August of 2016, and yoga later that year. I’ve managed to lose more than just the 20 lbs I gained. I now maintain a healthy weight of 112 lbs (I stand at around 5′ 0″ tall), and have gained a substantial amount of muscle. I’ve managed to reclaim my body and my health in a way that I could not be more proud of. I have transformed myself inside and out– fitness has been instrumental in shaping who I am as a young adult, as it’s influenced my overall demeanor and attitude completely. My journey is well never-ending, and I’ve never felt better.
