Reality check: I just ran a mini boutique out of my garage for a week selling my impulse purchases so I could pay my bills this month & have some money left over to enjoy the last 2 weeks of summer with my kids.
It sure feels good to purge and make some money at the same time. So to anyone who’s made the assumption I’m “spoiled” or a “St. Albert snob” - I’m so the opposite. I work pretty damn hard and money is tight when you’re hustling as an entrepreneur and you’ve got kids to raise.
Checkout the items I have left in my story, and DM me if you’re interested. Special price just fo you 😉
For anyone who knows me well, they’ll know I wear my ❤️heart on my sleeve! Whether I’m happy, sad or angry...you basically know how I’m feeling just by simply looking at my face. I can’t hide my feelings which doesn’t always go in my favour but I am who I am. This picture in my house always makes me smile! Sums me up perfectly! 🙄☺️🤪 #heartonmysleeve#manyfacesofme#mumdoingherbest#imnotperfect#imperfectishuman
Dans la vie, à partir du moment où tu t’es prouvé à toi même que tu avais de la valeur, tu ne dois plus rien à personne. A partir du moment où tu prend confiance en toi et que tu sais ce que tu vaux, tu n’as plus rien à prouver aux autres. Et les gens peuvent penser ce qu’ils veulent,ça n’a aucune valeur ... amen 🙏🏼 😏 🥳 Et toi ... oui toi! As tu confiance en toi ? Connais tu ta véritable valeur ? Pas celle que les autres on se toi ... mais la tiennes ?!...
I read a blogpost the other day about being the “Primary Parent” and then immediately after that I saw the quote “just because you can carry everything doesn’t mean it isn’t heavy”- this shit hit me so deep in my soul...
It doesn’t mean I want our lives to change, it doesn’t mean I don’t love/appreciate my husband ( @primalbro is a damn good dad) or my kids, it means IM FLIPPIN’ EXHAUSTED. DRAINED. I’m on cup 3 of coffee right now that will be followed by electrolytes just to keep my eyes open until 9-10pm when I’ll be able to inevitably sit on the couch (maybe since it’s soccer night) and most likely fall asleep slouched over- with half the days work left to do, but I cannot physically stay awake. •
I think us, as moms, don’t talk about all the shit we do. Like my husband has no idea how to register the kids for school, he’s the secondary on the school call list, busing kids around places constantly, all the doctors appointments, missed time from work, when the kids are sick- it’s me who handles it (and inevitably gets the illness as well, dragging it on). Us moms, we are badass. We somehow put ourselves last on a daily, monthly, yearly basis AND STILL show up and get all the things done with a smile on our face and tenderness in our hearts. •
Talk about it guys because the mom beside you feels the same whether they want to admit it or not. But let’s be honest, I know why it’s not talked about... because others will view you as “ungrateful” or “lazy”. Well F that. You can be exhausted and grateful, hardworking and tired. your feelings are always valid, and if the person you’re talking to doesn’t see that then BYE KAREN, We don’t need that type of “fake-perfection” in our lives 🙄😎
Enjoy the raw, real, makeup-less, acne showing, messy bun selfie- REAL LIFE. And swipe to see some of the blog post! •
I wish I could say this was an easy magical change. (POOF.. little fairy dust and happiness all around). But when I look back in my eyes I see the pain, the fear, the struggles of failing. I was so scared to ask for help. I was living in a shell of an Amanda I used to know.
That day getting ready I'll never forget. It took me 2 hours to get ready. My husband found me in the closet surrounded by clothes that didnt fit. Shirts where I couldnt raise my arms, jeans that wouldn't go above the knee, and a pile of tears. Make up ruined and hair stuck to my face. I WAS A MESS. I hit my low point.
I saw a woman on TV dancing in her living room shedding pounds. I could do that. I danced for 4 years in highschool, 8 years ago.
Did I try right away. No I looked online read reviews, look at "fake" transformations (they werent fake but I told myself they had to be), and I asked 6 different people how they enjoyed it, BEFORE I FINALLY TOOK THE PLUNGE. . $160 later, I had a years worth of workouts, a meal plan, reciepe book, 30 superfood meals, and an idea I would use it for 30 days, get 30 free meals, and get my money back, because NO WAY it would work. .
2.5 years I am still here. I have completed 9 programs and I am 1/5 the way through my 10th. And better yet now I get to help others find the fun in this journey. The easiness of eating real food and working out less than 30 min a day.
Do I cringe when I look at that before photo.. YES EVERYTIME. Do I hate posting it. YES.. but somewhere out there there is someone who needs to see a REAL TRANSFORMATION!!
So this is for you girl!
If I could do it.
SO CAN YOU!!!!
Ein erstes Ergebnis von dem Shooting gestern mit @rebecca.buerger.photography ❤😍🔥😱 Ist sie nicht wunderschön?🔥👑
Heute waren wir schon ziemlich früh bei Stelli und haben in der Halle und am Platz wieder etwas vom Boden aus gearbeitet. Phasenweise ganz gut aber auch mal schlechter. Nachdem ich nicht reiten wollte hab ich mit ihr noch etwas das Angaloppieren an der Longe geübt da sie da gerne mal so rein läuft in den Galopp, mit der Zeit wurde es besser als ihr aber die Kraft aus ging merkte man das auch. Wir haben dann noch in der Halle etwas Quatsch gemacht in der Hoffnung das der Regen in der Zeit aufhört, hat aber nicht geklappt und wir wurden nass😂🤷♀️
Can I be honest ? I’ve been wanting to quit sometimes! Today I tried on my black high waisted jeans and noticed you could still see the little speed pump -view #image2. At that moment it was over. I thought 💭 to myself I’ve been working so hard for nothing might as well eat everything in the fridge - I’m an emotional eater. Except there’s nothing -pinche probresa 🤦🏻♀️. So I sit there and think to myself wait you’re stronger mentally because you’re ass is getting up even on days you don’t feel like it. No ❌two round trips to the 🚗 for groceries🙌🏼. Yeah that speed bump is still there but my clothes do fit differently. Point is DON’T GIVE UP sis! You’re almost there! Look back at those before pictures, because pictures speak louder than the numbers on the scale. Think if you give up today, later you’ll want to be where you’re now. •
People in life will try to break you down, but when your heart is born to love, no matter how much a person hurts me, tries to bring me down, it always stays open. I will never be harden by the world! Everyday I pray and make affirmations that my heart never hardens and loves even better for the next round. I am in control of me nobody else and I am an overcomes in this life. I’m not perfect and will never say I am perfect but one thing is for sure my heart is mine and full of love. I will show empathy and compassion but will never make the mistake to giving my full heart to just anyone. That is sacred and only give to those who match it. We live and learn but to live without an open heart is just as equal to as if you died and live like a zombie like state of mind with a mean face. I will never be that girl and better have tried to make me that girl but will never succeed because I have way too much love in me that shines through everytime... #live#life#with#love#softheart#strong#strongwoman#takesastrongheart#tokeep#loving#imnotfromthisworld#neverwillbe #✌🏼 #selfawareness#love#instagram#instaquotes#imnotperfect#but#myheart#lovetolove
The problem for us, we tend to find perfection in someone without us realising, there’s none. Humans are imperfect, that’s the nature of God’s creation.
With human’s imperfection, God teaches you to forgive others, to help one another, to grow together. Then you’ll see perfection. ‘And the retribution for an evil act is an evil one like it, but whoever pardons and makes reconciliation - his reward is [due] from Allah. Indeed, He does not like wrondoers’ Ash-Shuraa: 40.
2017 Masjid An-Nabawi, home to the most perfect human being. Peace be Upon Him.

A few weeks ago a few friends and I visited a lady that had been going thru some hardship.
When we arrived we could see the sadness in her eyes. The hurt was so obvious, it could be sensed in the room.
I spoke to her and told her my story, the pain I had been thru, and the chains I have managed to break free from. I told her the pain I had endured in silence for some many years and all the repercussions. One of them being this Bipolar I Disorder. .
She saw me with disbelief as I explained that there was a rainbow after the rain. A light at the end of the tunnel, if you will.
She stopped me and said "I can never forgive the people who hurt me, why should I? I won't" .
I wish I could say I changed her mind. At that moment I realized that some of us tend to hold on to pain as if it was something natural. An emotion that we can't live without.
Fam it's not like that at all, we have to let go. What's the point of being angry or being hurt. It took me too many years and years to forgive and it cost me more than you could imagine. I had to stop depending on others to heal my pain...to make me happy, to give me what I deserved. When the ONLY VOICE THAT MATTER COMES FROM ME! .
We all have pain, all that means is we have a heart. A heart that feels...and if it can feel pain... imagine how much love it can feel? We just have to replace the emotion.
So throw away all that guilt, anger, sorrow, unforgiveness.
Stop depending on others to give you what you need and discover what you could be doing all by yourself!
I believe in you!
Believe in yourself too!
Gestern sind wir wieder in die Halle gegangen um daran anzuschließen wo wir Smastag aufgehört haben.
U.a. haben wir es gestern geschafft ohne Innenstellung einen Zirkel zu galoppieren und durch Ecken durch. Auch kam das Schulterherein dazu.
Was mir jetzt nach dem 3ten mal schon aufgefallen ist das sie schon viel aufmerksamer am Schenkel ist und es nicht mehr viel Arbeit ist sie in ein schenkelweichen oder ein Schunterherein zu reiten. In der Hand ist nir noch selten Gewicht und sie trägt sich schön selbst. Ich denke das ihr dabei v.a. das Aufwärmen am Boden durch die Mobilisation und Flexion sehr helfen.
Mal schauen wo uns das hinführt :). -
Heute sind wir erst mit Poldi und Pablo ca 1h spazieren gegangen und danach haben wir mit Poldi noch etwas auf der Wiese gemacht:) -
Mit Stelli haben wir heute etwas auf der Wiese geshootet und sie geputzt, also ganz entspannter Tag. Morgen wird es für sie wieder anstrengender:)
On Saturday, day 20/💯 the 100 second challenge was to write down my goals, what will stop me from giving up, why am I doing this, just WRITE instinctually.
To NOT let my pen leave that paper for the full 100 seconds. To write down all I am feeling, thinking, & channeling to get through this. Write as fast as the thoughts come, without questioning or doubting them.
I had the perfect reminder beside me of why I shouldn't quit. Of exactly why it is important that my dreams come true and what my dreams consist of. The force that kept my pen to the paper.
I'll admit for a breath it was distracting with a toddler running around - First in my head was "I only have 100seconds, sit still, leave me be" ( #imnotperfect#mommingishard) But in that quick breath, I asked "Jameson join me, get a crayon. We are going to write" and he did🖍️ I could have chosen to be frustrated, and ended up missing the challenge. Instead im making a Lifestyle Reno to my mind as well. and fighting less. He just wants to spend time with me♥️ It's damn inspiring and motivating with my toddler running around because he is a FACTOR in any choices and improvements I make.
Any Lifestyle Reno's I make for me play into his life too. He also benefits 💕
Sometimes challenges need to make you think, free you from your self doubt.
Maybe your ready for a freeing challenge just like this, something to get you believing in you before the doubt can pop in
If so, I'd love to have you join us on a free lifestyle Reno group.
Let me see your crayons below 🖍️ to join
in-- sign ups start Today.
We start WEDNESDAY 🥰
I’m more conscious than I ever have been and I will continue to become more conscious every day.
How do I do this? 🧠
I read books that open my perspective. I listen to expand my knowledge. I learn about the universal laws, science, spirituality and mindset. I am constantly learning and absorbing.
My last post was about being in control of your emotions, but...
I’m not perfect.
I still get caught up in my thoughts sometimes.
Today I am at war with them. ⚔️
I know that I am the only one who can control my emotions. Yet in these moments I feel like I have lost that control. I am conscious of the feelings, I acknowledge them and I understand them. But they are lingering & festering. So the next step is shifting them.
☑️Here’s what I did:
Deep breathing & affirmations
Went for a jog & listened to
“Abraham Hick + Esther Hicks + Fearless Soul - Law of Attraction” playlist on Spotify (my go to)
Talked with a friend about unrelated topics
Took a cold shower
Planned my day
🔘Here’s what I’m going to do:
Be productive in my business
Do something that makes me feel good
Feel gratitude and find the positives
Forgive & communicate
Just because we read that we are in control of our thoughts does not mean that we will instantly be a master of it. It takes a bit of work and practice before one can complete master their mind 🙇🏻♀️ be gentle
I want to know...
What is something that helps YOU FEEL AMAZING? 🤗
