“Operation Amanda PT: a leaner and stronger version of myself”
Category : Uncategorized
Four weeks ago I told a very good friend of mine that I was going on a diet and she freaked out! ☺
She freaked out because that meant I would follow a very strict diet and give up on alcohol for quite a while.
We usually go out with our friends to socialize and have a good time. And this often involves eating good food and having a few drinks, so NOT drinking is a big thing, isn’t it? Alcohol can help us relax and unwind. I really enjoy my weekly glass or two.
One thing my friend told me that day was true, she said: “You don’t believe in diets! You’ve always said that if people exercise and eat well during the week they can have a treat on the weekend… you have always thought that. Why are you going to do this program?”
Well, here is why…
I’ve always wanted to have a leaner body but in the past I wasn’t ready to give up ice cream, chocolate, cake and wine, but this time, I’m ready to do it!
I’ve been working in the fitness industry for over 17 years and exercising since I was 5 years old. The first time I went on a diet was in 2014, as I wanted to lose some fat and get stronger. I stopped eating fatty foods, refined carbohydrates, sugar and I also stopped drinking alcohol.
Back then, I really struggled with the strict diet.. (what I missed the most in 2014 was pasta (I LOVE PASTA) and wine (I love having some wine on the weekends)). However, I am happy to say that I’ve been on this diet for four weeks now and so far I’ve kept strong. Last Saturday, I really wanted to eat a chicken burger but I quickly talked myself out of it when I thought about the good results I’ve been having already.
Four weeks on and I’m 2.7 kilos lighter, and feeling stronger!
I can’t wait to see what is waiting for me at the end of this 6-month journey! Watch this space…
