I’m Amanda-the gal behind the blog. I have only recently started blogging, and man has it been a lot to learn! Living an active life and being healthy have been passions of mine for just about most of my life, in various forms. I was your typical kid growing up trying multiple sports until volleyball was the one that stuck. I played that in high school as well as competitively on club teams. I absolutely love volleyball. The team aspect, competitiveness, and personal growth made it such a great thing to be a part of. I am a competitive person so this was great for me! I continued to play a bit recreationally in college, and am trying my hand at coaching middle schoolers.
After my volleyball career had run its course, I turned to working out at the gym. I didn’t really know what I was doing at first, but knew I enjoyed it so I read fitness magazines and Google articles. Luckily Pinterest was just becoming a thing so that gave me some good tips as well! My love of exercising continued to grow, so I decided to go to school for exercise science and try to figure out a way to apply my passion to a career. After completing my Bachelors, I still didn’t have much direction of where to take my passion for fitness. I worked at a physical therapy/sports performance clinic and learned so much.
Fast forward a few years, I am now married to my husband Daniel (who I met in college), working for a data software company, and living in Boise. While working full-time, I decided to go back to school for a second bachelors in nutrition. I realized after college that I wanted to expand my knowledge of eating and proper nutrition. The end goal is to become a registered dietitian, and hopefully one day have my own coaching business!
The purpose of this blog is to share the things I’m learning-in life, fitness, and nutrition. In this world with so many different opinions and fads, my goal is to help bring clarity and help people figure out what is best for them. I would love to hear your thoughts about anything, and feel free to ask me anything!
Thanks so much for stopping by and reading my thoughts! Hopefully you’ll get some takeaways and encouragement for your own life.
