Hi. My name is Amanda and just like everyone else, I strive toward being healthier. We each have a unique set of struggles. Some of mine include endocrine conditions, mainly PCOS and Hypothyroidism and cookies. Some of my weight is from waiting to long to be diagnosed with endocrine problems. Some of it is from stress and eating cookies. Oops. At least am aware of it though and that is a start.

Another important factor I am trying to include in my life is optimism. Used to have plenty of it and at times, it's still here but other times, it's more difficult to find. Just like we all have our own set of challenges, we also have our good days and our bad days.

Encouragement is always welcome so don't be too shy to leave a comment and say hi! :) If you add me as a spark friend, I will add you back but sometimes, I may miss the email so if you don't get an add, it is not personal. It just means I missed the email. Everyone is Welcome. We are all here for the goal of health and fitness. No judgment here! :)

Hope your journey is going well today and if not, keep trying because trying most definitely counts! Don't allow anyone to discourage you today. If you're where you want to be, keep it up and celebrate all of your successes, no matter how minor you perceive them to be.

:) Thanks for stopping by my page! Thanks for the support and encouragement! Thanks to listening to me ramble on blogs and allowing me into a part of your life by allowing me to encourage you and read your blogs too! :)

"You are too smart to be the only thing standing in your way!"
There are many more quotes I love and hopefully, I'll share them soon!
