It’s Day 4 of the new program I’m on that University Dermatology Center is sponsoring me to do at The Onion Factory in Anderson. I am mentally, physically, and emotionally exhausted because it’s been a heck of a week. I didn’t want to go work out last night…I didn’t want to go and meet with my trainer…I just wanted to sleep but I went. Boy oh boy am I glad because after my meeting/workout I felt ALOT better!!! Get up and move…even when you don’t want to because you will feel better. If I can do it…anyone can. I couldn’t sleep last night and maybe got 4 hours…since I had to be up to fill in for the Morning Show and I’m NOT a morning person…but especially when you have to wake up at 3:30am and can’t have caffeine. It’s day 4 of this and my body hurts. I never knew when you do a cleanse, your body releases built up toxins all at once, causing a host of unpleasant symptoms referred to as “detox”. These symptoms I’m experiencing include body aches…everywhere , brain fog…it feels like I’m in a dream…it’s really strange…. fatigue, low energy, headaches, irritability, extreme cravings (for sweet, salty or other unhealthy foods), and the list goes on…it’s rough but I’m determined that if I can get through a few more days the rest will be easier. It actually is eye opening to how bad my body needs to get rid of all these toxins.Is it nap time? ;)
University Dermatology Center is sponsoring my program at The Onion Factory in Anderson. It’s an amazing facility where we peel away the layers to get healthy and fit. In this 8 week program we have weekly group meetings, personal training sessions, cooking classes, lift weights, and workout. It’s alot of pressure to do this in the public eye and I’m feeling really scared but my game face is on. I quit Caffiene cold turkey Monday. I was vomiting off and on all day. Day 2 I had a horrid Migrane and on Day 3 I feel like I’m in a dream…kinda cloudy. I also gave up chocolate, alcohol, and decreasing the amounts of sugars, carbs, fats etc. It’s a lifestyle change and boy oh boy it’s difficult. I want a piece of chocolate sooo bad right now or something salty like chips but no can do Oh no I want a diet coke!!! No Amanda…focus. =p So the record weight loss is 43 lbs in 8 weeks…my goal is to beat that!!! I think I can I think I can. I’m on the meal plan so every night I stop by and grab my meals for the next day as well as will get my cardio in. Gotta love the elliptical….or as we call it THE BEAST! Many people have asked if I joined a gym and I could have but what good would that really do? I need to change my eating habits, I need to understand what weights to lift when, What cardio to do, and I want to keep the weight off. The Onion Factory in Anderson is the best fit for me because it’s having the gym/workout facility but also having a nutritionist, personal chef, personal trainer, and group support system. Also if you think I’m miserable just know right now I’m indulging in Turtle Cheesecake the chefs made because that’s what I was given for my afternoon snack. UMMM HECK YEAH! I’m scared, nervous, questioning why the hell I’m doing this in front of so many people haha because their is no room for failure. #NASHFM1025 #NEWME #Pressure

"There’s so much more to life than finding someone who will want you, or being sad over someone who doesn’t. There’s a lot of wonderful time to be spent discovering yourself without hoping someone will fall in love with you along the way, and it doesn’t need to be painful or empty. You need to fill yourself up with love. Not anyone else. Become a whole being on your own. Go on adventures, fall asleep in the woods with friends, wander around the city at night, sit in a coffee shop on your own, write on bathroom stalls, leave notes in library books, dress up for yourself, give to others, smile a lot. Do all things with love, but don’t romanticize life like you can’t survive without it. Live for yourself and be happy on your own. It isn’t any less beautiful, I promise."
