Really can’t start a blog without allowing you into my world first.
So heloooo from me, I am Amanda.
I squat and snatch for fun , a barbell in my hand is my thinking space , my Amanda time and It also makes me feel and look freeking amazing!
Olympic Lifting is my hobbie.
I love to eat and I am a total coffee snob!
Single mum to my best friend ever – my son Taylan. Naturally I will say this , but I promise it is true, he is the coolest kid ever!
For fun, he lifts the iron also and has a extremely funny sense of humour!
Totally blessed to have him as my training partner.
Do you even work !
So I work, I hold down a job as a Nutritionist and a Medical PA for the NHS in Mental Health and work freelance for UKMMA.
I am a busy bee for sure but as a single mum I was always determined to fend for myself and my son no matter what life threw at us!
I am one determined lady and have been inspiring females into fitness and nutrition in my local area since 2006. Love being able to inspire or motivate someone to achieve their goals, improve their health and realise a healthy lifestyle is not boring but instead empowering and god dam sexy!
My Double Edged Sword
Life dealt me with an illness , Ulcerative Colitis. Diagnosed in 2006. I have one message about this ..
FUCK YOU COLITIS !
This blog will cover my Ulcerative Journey mainly because If I can help someone understand it is possible to fight back , or to share my struggles and help someone not feel alone in those dark times, then I will be a happy lady.
I know what it is like to feel lower than low, to struggle each day with a disability and put on your make up like everything is ok , but inside your body is struggling with a fight of its own.
I guess I want to get the message out there about Ulcerative Colitis and make people realise it is not IBS, spread the word that this illness is a silent life changer for everyone impacted by it.
I will also blog about all things health and fitness.
I love interaction , so message me , comment , I will always reply
Be Strong , Be Healthy , Be You
