Hayyyyy! I thought I should introduce myself since I’ve had some new followers lately.
My name is Manda, My husband is Zach and we have three children. Ember 3, Georgia 2 and Rock 1. We currently live in our camper in Minnesota until Zach’s work season is over and then we will hit the road for about five months. In mid March we sold almost everything we owned and our home, got the trailer and a new truck (not in that order) to be traveling, tiny dwellers. Go minimalism! I love church, red lipstick, cute beach towels and taking pictures. .

This summer has been different......
For 2 main reasons....
.

1-I am the most confident I have ever felt in clothes, a bikini... you name it. (That’s because a) I’ve worked hard over the years & have refined my training & know my body & b) I’ve come to an age where I’ve learned to love my body because of the incredible things it’s done & give myself some grace along the way. (Life’s too short to hate yourself). .
& 2- we’ve reached a point in my coaching business where we have both the time & financial freedom to travel both near & far. We’ve planned out the summer with a balance of being home & enjoying our friends & traveling to explore new places and visit family too. 😆
.
.
This is the life I’ve dreamt of & for that, I am truly grateful.
Don’t let another summer pass by as anything less than your best. Life is too short (& precious) to live anything but your Best Life. .

HAPPY HAPPY GAL because I'm working on something super exciting..... I'M STARTING A MONTHLY EMAIL 🙆🏼‍♀️🎉👯‍♀️😄🌈
.
Each month I will be sending out an email with sample meal plans, healthy and YUMMY hubby-approved (aka picky eat approved lol) recipes, nutrition tips, and helpful mindset motivation! I've been thinking about doing this for a while now and recently I just stopped and was like.....well, why don't I just DO IT?!
.
SO if you are interested, drop your email below (or message it to me if you're more comfortable with that 😊) and I'll add you to my list!! Planning on sending out my first one very soon!!! 🙆🏼‍♀️
.
Much love 💛💛💛💛

Mr. Isaac ran into his nanas cigarette today. Burned his eye. We went straight to the hospital. He looks like he's fine now. Bless his heart. After that went to walmart to get a new train. Percy!

My biggest challenge isn’t the pain I feel, or the struggle to physically get the weight up, not the ache in my legs or my breathless lungs. It’s the ability to physically get my body to do what I need it to do... and the voice that often enters my head telling me......... “You will never be normal again”. •


My cognitive, neurological and neuromuscular part of my brain is and probably always will be my biggest struggle but that doesn’t mean I can’t make it better every damn day. We have to fight, we have to understand that we are in control of what WE do on the daily. There will always be somebody fitter, faster, stronger and more capable of doing the hardest things but day by day you’ll get stronger. My journey is unlike the rest but I’m thankful for every single moment because it has taught me that I can accomplish hard things in life 💕 #thankfulthursday for @ramonblankenship for believing in me and pushing me past my struggles! •

Do you ever find yourself in the comparison trap?
.
We compare ourselves to other moms, other wives other woman. Who always seem to do more, have more, be more than we are. And that only leaves us feeling less than, disappointed and maybe even ashamed.
.
When I want to compare myself....I am learning to only do so.....with myself. How does the me of today compare with who I was a year ago, 6 months ago or even yesterday. .
A year ago I was about 3 months into my recovery. Battling every day with my insecurities and trying to overcome my negative thought patterns. I was still hiding my struggles and trying to save face while all of this emotional turmoil was happening. .
Today, my confidence is mountains above where it used to be. I have completely transformed my mindset and continue to work on it every day. I have had the courage to speak openly about my journey. And I have drastically improved the relationship with my husband and my role as a mother. .
How can I be upset about my perception of what somebody else has or what somebody is doing when I am focused on ALL I HAVE and ALL I HAVE DONE and ALL GOD HAS IN STORE FOR ME STILL.
.
I'm not saying it's easy. Our human nature is to compare with other people. I'm saying it's a choice. When I find my gaze drifting to this woman or that woman I have to readjust my focus. .
And everyday just try to be a little better than I was the day before.

We went to the beach today 🏖
I put on my swim shorts and was like “oh nice, these were tight last time I tried them and they fit perfectly now”
...and then I ate 3 slices of pizza 🍕 😳🤦🏼‍♀️
It was spinach and feta...so that’s kinda healthy...right?! 🤪
It happens to all of us at times.
Tomorrow I expect my swim shorts to be tighter again. 🙄

Mothers, daughters, sisters, cousins and BFFs who met through the internet. All different ages from the 20s to the 50s! What a crazy business model!!!
.
(There are 4 of us 50 somethings in the pic!!! Can you find the old farts?!?! 😂)
.
You get to get in the best shape of your life, meet incredible people who want to live better lives, motivate others to get healthy, and get paid for it!
.
Some of the people you impact are family members and some are complete strangers. But regardless of where they came from, you become a family together who lift each other up and support one another. Families become closer and strangers become family. .
It's a proven model that works. My daughter and I are proof of that. We're 4.5 years in on our amazing journey and it just keeps getting better! #TeamPositude #BetterTogether 👯‍♀️

Today is a great day. The weather here in Maryland is beautiful! I hit 27 weeks today! AND we got to see the baby for the first time in a long while! 😍


He looks like he’s doing great in there and he loves to kick me right in the bladder. So today, after a 45 minute ride to my appt, I’m also thankful to have made it to the bathroom!! 🙌🏽


Here’s to another week of growth and health! 🥂

Thankful, grateful, blessed. Sometimes when we start looking at others highlight real we compare and then start discounting your own story and journey. But truth is we all have bad days, kids that throw temper tantrums, heck we throw temper tantrums. But when I look only at my life I realize how blessed I am, thankful I am and Grateful I am for all the blessings I have. It’s my journey. I write my story. #thankful #grateful #blessed #inspirationalquotes #dailyinspiration #thankfulgratefulblessed

Real talk 🖤 Tuesday was a hard day. A really flipping hard day. I let my emotions & negative thoughts get the best of me and then I consciously chose to let myself feel all the feels, but promised myself I’d let it go before the next day. I teared up multiple times, I shut myself off from communication with people and I just simmered. While it sucked, I truly feel like we just need to let those times happen now and again. It’s reality, it’s truth and it’s totally normal. Yesterday was a better day, because I followed through with my promise to myself. And today is even a bit better. Just a reminder that not all days are good or easy, it’s okay to feel all the feels, you’re normal if you have a negative thought. Feel it, address it, let it go. It’s a process. 🖤 #truthfulthursday #mindbodyspirit #bekindtoyourself #pregnancybrain #pregnant #fitmama #healthymamahealthybaby #25w5d #itisntadestinationitsajourney #healthymindhealthybodyhealthysoul #thankfulgratefulblessed #tooblessedtobestressed #bumpin #mama #bumpie #strongerbetterfasterstronger #strongmindstrongheart #strongwilled #noexcuses #mindful #beyourowncheerleader

#thankfulthursday Today I am especially thankful for my health and for my family. Our littlest little turns 4 tomorrow! She joined our family when she was 2 and it has been such a joy watching her learn and grow. It is hard to believe that today is her last day being 3. #slowdownbabygirl💕

Do you ever look at your children and just smile uncontrollably?? Not because they did anything amazing.... Just smiling because THAT is who God blessed you with!? I’m amazed at this little human every single day. And nothing amazes me more than the fact that God chose ME to be his mom. ♥️
