I quit my job…

June 28th, 2011 / 1 Comment » / by Amanda

A lot has happened since my last blog.. I up and quit my job at ADT and did a happy dance. That’s right that picture up there is my stuff all packed up to get outta there!!! It was the most scary/awesome thing ever to tell that crappy place where they could stick it! It was scary because I hadn’t quite locked down another job yet. Otherwise it was amazing and I was able to get a client and have started working with them doing some Social Media work. So far it’s great.. Being in Gatlinburg everyday is pretty nice. It’s pretty neat learning the area in a different way than the “tourist” way. Learning the short cuts, good places to visit/eat that aren’t the normal touristy places, etc.. It’s been great so far. I’ve did well from what I can tell with getting everything started up for them. It’s pretty exciting since they is the career path I really want to be on. Right now Cabin Rental places… Next stop Motorsports and Racecar Drivers!!

Random CDs

May 13th, 2011 / No Comments » / by Amanda

If you follow me on Twitter you probably me saw a tweet from me earlier that I had found an simply amazing CD. My car only has a CD player and all my cds in there are all pretty much 4-5 years old. They are just CD’s I have made myself and I just usually randomly pull one out when I need music and the music on the radio sucks (IE, Nickelback, Disturbed, Creed).

Today I pulled out not one but two gems! Now some of these cd’s have labels as to what sort of music the cd holds and some do not. This first piece of amazing song compiling was labeled. “Old School Guys” works for me.. If you know me, you know that I LOVE the 80s! Everything having to do with it. The Music, Hair, Clothes, obnoxious amounts of neon I LOVE it..

Playlist from said CD was as follows: Read more…


Seriously this time..

I’m going to blog I swear!!! I may even start vlogging! We will see!

Today I start the amazingly awesome Couch to 5K program! I hope that in 9 weeks I will be able to run a 5k easily! :) It’s on my bucket list to run a marathon and I will do it this year! It’s exactly 10 weeks until I turn 30 and it would be a fantastic present to myself to finish this program.

I’m going to be using the Couch to 5k App on my lovely new iPhone I got a couple weeks ago that tracks everything for me. I am going to be tracking my food intake via the MyFitnessPal.com website and app as well. I can see when I do bad and when I do good it has my calorie goals built into the software.

On top of doing the program I may also throw in some Zumba now and then, I purchased the DVD set a couple months ago and have done it once.. It’s great for toning so I’ll throw that in now and then to mix it up a little bit, more probably on my off days from work since it takes like an hour to do.

If you have any fitness tips or awesome recipes please share them! I’m excited to get started on everything and am determined to stick to it this time!

I will post a weight in with everything tomorrow, I forgot to weight in this morning due to having a job interview.

Lately I’ve been trying to find some other hobbies.. The only hobby I really have is Drifting.. So I have came to the conclusion that I need more hobbies.. Drifting is done some in the cooler months but mostly done during the spring/summer. I love looking at pictures so I figured that learning how to take a good picture would be a good hobby to take up. I work so much on FemaleRacingNews that generally I don’t have much time for anything else. With my stress levels at an all time high, I decided it was time for a change.  So I’m working on this, I’m trying to find some blogs to read about technique, and relying on advice from Chris since he minor in photography in college. I hope to get pretty decent with composition within the next few weeks. Wish me luck!
