#thankyouwhole30

MOST RECENT

Hiya! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿป Iโ€™ve noticed there are quite a few more of ya here so I thought I would introduce myself.
__
My name is Amanda, Iโ€™m 29, married with 2 kids (6 and almost 8!) that are my world.
__

3 years ago I was living the busy Mom life, working part time, raising kids, getting out of debt and keeping up with a home. I was on an emotional binge eating and drinking rollercoaster which I had been on my whole adult-ish life. It has just gotten MUCH worse with adult life. Feel sad or emotional>Overeat or drink> Beat myself up for overeating> Feel even worse about why I was sad in the first place> Feel even worse and more guilt> Beat myself up even more> Start again next time something came up. It was ENDLESS! That was until I did Whole30. (Which I NEVER thought I would have enough self control to do!) __

It has changed every aspect of my life. It helped me heal my broken relationship with food, heal the triggers that were causing it, heal the relationships that were causing the triggers, learn my self worth, taught me how to love my body with food, taught me how to have self control, gave me more confidence than I ever had before, loose over 50lbs, heal digestive problems, clear skin, lessen migraines, etc.
__

Now, as a #whole30certifiedcoach my hope is that I can help you accomplish the same things! We all deserve to learn to love ourselves and show our bodies the respect they so graciously deserve! When we put crap in, we get crap out! You are what you eat! If I can help you in any way, please donโ€™t hesitate to DM me or email me! Iโ€™m an open book! Thank you for following me along in my journey and I hope to meet you some day! ๐Ÿ˜˜ Have a wonderful night!

Every day my kids earn these as treats at school. For the first few weeks, I was ok with it. What's one piece of candy gonna do?
.
But then they kept coming... Attitudes got worse, there was more bickering and they got abnormally upset if I said no to that one piece. And grades at school started to slip.
.
So I took it all away.
.
ALL OF IT. No sugar, in any shape, way or form. (The Whole30 has that effect on people.)
.
During the Whole30 and even now, the kids trade in candy for something at home.
.
โœ“ Sometimes it's a cup of flavored yogurt that I found marked down. โœ“Right now it's half of a homemade peanut butter chocolate granola bar.
โœ“Soon it will be homemade peanut butter cups.
.
Allowing one piece was a slippery slope for us, and it led to behavior issues, so we don't allow any candy at all.
.
It might sound harsh, but it's amazing to be on the other side, to confidently say no to candy AND THE KIDS are in agreement with us. It's so freeing!!
.
What's your take on candy?

If I can do this; over-come emotional/disordered binge eating, change my relationship with food, create new healthy habits, gain confidence and self control, and loose 50lbs and keeping it off for 2 years; SO CAN YOU! One choice, meal, situation, day at a time. You are the only one in charge of you. โค๏ธ ๐Ÿ˜˜

So hereโ€™s my before and after from my adventure with @teamiblends and @whole30....I am 11 pounds down and canโ€™t believe how different I feel on the outside and inside! If you put your mind and body to the test, you can do anything! #thankyouteami #thankyouwhole30

#whole30 day 29 and what a day it was!!! Spin class, church, then this hike. It pushed me past my limits....I talked to God,Pops,Nana and Pappap a lot....i found peace in MY struggle. Find peace in THIS life even in your struggles because the end will be a billion light years better than anything you have experienced this side of heaven!! #michellehikes #thegoodlife #nothingcankeepmedown #lesstalkingmorelistening #faith #utahisrad #mybackyard #yesitookanap #thankyouwhole30

( ๐Ÿ“ท 2.5 years apart.) This dress has seen so many things! And I think itโ€™s almost time to retire it and get a new one. When I bought this it, I was only comfortable wearing it with my spanx, and even then I wasnโ€™t really โ€œcomfortableโ€. It will never cease to amaze me how finding your self worth will completely change how you see yourself. In fact, how you see everyone! Learning to accept yourself and love yourself is one of the most powerful things you can do. I wish I would have learned this sooner in life, but nevertheless, I am extremely grateful for learning it! ๐Ÿ˜โค๏ธ Donโ€™t be so hard on yourself. You are trying the best you can, and if you arenโ€™t, you know what you need to do to change that. So do it. Stop complaining. Stop whining. Stop being the victim. YOU are the only one who can control YOU! I believe in you! You CAN do it! Those cookies and candies you binge eat in private, you wear in public. That self loathing head voice that tells you youโ€™re not good enough, wins every time you give up. You are more than your flaws, mistakes and short comings. Itโ€™s time to change! Love yourself enough to change. Only look back to see how far youโ€™ve come! ๐Ÿ˜˜ #selflove #loveyourself #transform #healyourmind #healthymindhealthybody #mamawardgetsfit #selfworth #youareworthy #youareamazing #transformation #eatclean #foodisfuelnottherapy #foodheals #ificandoitsocanyou #recoveringsugaraddict #disorderedeatingrecovery #paleoish #paleomama #wholefood #healthyeats #paleo #lifeafterwhole30 #iamwhole30 #thankyouwhole30 #wetseal #bodycondress #dressesfordays

Hi! - Itโ€™s Amanda. Iโ€™m gonna be real raw with you today. โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”
I have stretch marks all over my body. I have small boobs and big thighs. I have loose skin on my tummy from having babies. I have crooked teeth. I have acne. But you know what? I LOVE myself despite all of those things!
This did NOT happen over night. Far from it. In fact Iโ€™ve struggled with insecurities and body image issues most of my life. When I was younger, I was all legs. 5โ€™8โ€ wearing a size 00 in 7th grade. When you are tall youโ€™re told 2 things, โ€œI bet you play basketball!โ€ Or โ€œYou should be a model!โ€ Well, I played basketball, and REALLY wanted to be a model. But that dream would never happen. As I got older, the insecurities and self hate just got worse. Until recently, when I FINALLY learned how to love myself. The dream of becoming a model is still very much in my heart. That leads me to @aerie โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”
A couple years back, I found out about their #aeriereal campaign and I was drawn to it. For the first time in my life, a company was supporting REAL women and celebrating their imperfect bodies and confidence. No retouching, no editing. Just beautiful, real women. I fell in love with the company and their voice they had created. Well, they are looking for new models/fans to join their campaign, so I entered! ๐Ÿ˜ฌ Itโ€™s terrifying and I found myself starting to doubt but I shoved that noise aside and went decided to go for it. I canโ€™t even begin to tell you what I would do if I got picked to be apart of the new campaign. It would be a dream come true. Beyond a dream come true!
โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”
So cheers to being real, raw, imperfect and confident! I pray my daughter skips all the bullshit I went through, and learns from me NOW and not my past. Youโ€™re beautiful inside and out. Donโ€™t let anyone make you feel otherwise! ๐Ÿ˜˜

Face to Face Friday -- My wake up call on my health/weight happened when I was studying abroad in South Korea. I look at this video from July 2016 and can now see just how unhealthy and worn down I really was. Now, 70lbs lost and I feel like I got my life back. Celebrating this progress today, because damn. My checks got smaller but my smile? So much brighter now that I have my health as a top priority. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ-->๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’›โ˜€๏ธ

A little transformation picture for your Thursday afternoon โœจ Iโ€™ve been working really hard with eating good food for the past 27 days. I only have 3 more to go on my first round of #Whole30 !!! Some days are hard but it has sooo been worth it! Striving to live a healthier life ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค— the picture on the right is the most recent of me, on Easter. Iโ€™ll have to post a more recent before and after ๐Ÿ˜† #thankyouwhole30 #transformation #throwbackthursday #beforeandafter #healthylifestyle #betterfuture

Balsamic Chicken and Veggie Bake with half of a baked sweet tater for dinner with some great reading! Today is DAY 30!!! I feel awesome! Better energy, more alert, no cravings, and I just feel CLEAN. I canโ€™t say much about my sleep because my little one has been tampering with that a bit ๐Ÿคฃ But Iโ€™m definitely more energized! One other awesome #nonscalevictory is that I can wear a TON of my pre-pregnancy clothes that I wouldnโ€™t have even dreamed of fitting into 30 days ago! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป Yassss! #fitgirlsguide #whole30results #whole30compliant #whole30 #foodfreedomforever #foodfreedom #therealfoodrds #thankyouwhole30 #tryingtobeafitmom #fitmom #bloomintoyou #cleaneating

Too many colored eggs?? Breakfast salad! (Or anytime) I never thought I would love veggies for breakfast but now it doesnโ€™t feel like breakfast without them. #tablaviesrf #tablavie #simplyrealfood #veggiesforbreakfast #thankyouwhole30

Closing in on the end of my Whole30 and to say Iโ€™ve learned so much about myself and my relationship with food would be a huge understatement. This is my third time doing a Whole30, and Iโ€™m amazed at this programโ€™s ability to have someone continuously learning and growing. I have a new relationship with the fuel I put into my body and Iโ€™m excited to tackle life after this awesome nutritional reset. This book is helping to answer my questions about how to approach the reintroduction phase and continue to be mindful when choosing my foods. To enjoy true food freedom. #foodfreedom #whole30 #thankyouwhole30 #foodforthought #nighttimereading #fitbabesunited #fitgirlsguide #bloomintoyou

Iโ€™ve realized lately that I have not been eating as many veggies as I could be. So Iโ€™ve been trying to figure out way to get more greens in my diet. I have also learned I LOVE arugula! & With pretty much anything! What I love about cooking, is that you can make anything! You can play around with recipes and make them your own, or just come up with your own all together! I think part of eating healthy is also learning how to cook. Once you learn you can cook, the possibilities are endless! Donโ€™t be afraid to experiment! Have fun with your food! Pictured: Roasted potatoes, chicken sausage and wilted arugula! ๐Ÿ˜

Today- weโ€™re taking it all the way back to November 2014. 3.5 years ago! (Photo: Left- 3.5 years ago, Right- Today!) So much has changed in 3.5 years. So many good things! Some, not so good things. I can tell you one aspect of my life that is better and will always be, is my mental and emotional health.
_

If you take nothing away from my IG feed but this- listen up!!
_

You have to LOVE yourself to change. Self hate and self loathing is what keeps you in the emotional binge eating cycle that you (I was!) may be stuck in. That toxic mental state which you keep falling back into. That HAS to change FIRST! Then, you will realize things about yourself and your relationship with food, that you never have before.
_

My hope is that you can have the emotional and mental change that I have seen in myself AND friends/clients. It has totally changed my life and theirs as well.
_

You are far more capable of change than you think you are!! ๐Ÿ˜˜ If you need help/encouragement/guidance, Iโ€™d love to help coach you through your journey!
_

Iโ€™m going to be taking a group of people through Whole30 starting April 1st! Who wants to join?! โ€”-Message me!

Starting the whole30 book and the last paragraph in the introduction really is so important not just for whole30 but for me in everything Iโ€™m trying to accomplish in my fitness journey! #whole30approved #thankyouwhole30 #andthanksforaddingpotatos #bbgprogress #bbg

Since itโ€™s #transformationtuesday and all, I thought I would join the party. If you have followed me for any length of time you will have heard me say numerous times how I post these photos for inspiration/motivation for others. Still to this day, it is VERY hard for me to share the photos on the left. Why? Because I was in such a bad state emotionally that I had neglected myself. Completely disregarding my health. And thatโ€™s embarrassing. Doing and eating what felt good in the moment but then caused all sorts of problems afterwards. I am in a way, showing you all my dark secrets. What I did in the darkness of my own mind and while alone. Iโ€™ve heard before that what you eat in secret you wear in public and that could not be more true in my case. I was continuing to gain weight, in an endless cycle of emotional binge eating, out of control, drinking too much alcohol, trying desperately to end the cycle but being too hard on myself and ending up riiigghhttt back where I started. It went on for YEARS. Iโ€™m so glad to off that ride! I hope that somehow, someway, I may inspire you to@figure out what works for you to heal yourself. In the deepest darkest parts of your mind that no one but God sees. Because at the end of the day, it will always come back up and bring all the hurt with it. Take time to heal YOU so you can help heal others! Trust me, if I can, you can! Be kind to yourself. Love and respect yourself enough to do this. Stop beating yourself up. That doesnโ€™t help anyone! ๐Ÿ˜˜ #ificandoitsocanyou #transformation #healyourmind #healthymindhealthybody #foodisfuelnottherapy #mamawardgetsfit #mamawardswholekitchen #whole30changedmylife #thankyouwhole30 #thankyoumelissahartwig #whole30 #iamwhole30 #whole30certifiedcoach #healthcoach #changeyourlife #youdeservebetter #selflove #loveyourself #youareworthit #eatlikeyourlifedependsonit #recoveringsugaraddict #yougotthis #getitgirl #senitaathletics #transformyourmind #itstartswithyou #lifeafterwhole30 #youarecapable #disorderedeating

TRANSFORMATION TUESDAY..
We all start somewhere and for me I started at rock bottom. After seeing this particular photo, I knew I needed to overhaul my entire lifestyle..There was just no denying it anymore. 3 months after this photo was taken, I joined a gym (I learned to love) and committed to my first round of @whole30. And I've never looked back. I still eat a Whole30 plate 85% of the time while still exploring my food freedom and I push myself with fitness 6 days a week. This is just my life now, and I'm so f*cking proud of the girl on the left for realizing her health was worth fighting for. Because health and happiness? It's worth it's weight in GOLD

A little something I read today that explains the journey I am on. #24days ago I decided to jump in, take life by the horns, and do something I never thought I could do. I can already see #nonescalevictories and I know thereโ€™s still more to come. Iโ€™m on my way to #food #freedom #forever #thankyouhusband #thankyoumelissahartwig #thankyouwhole30 #thankyougod

Trying to keep my #whole30 exciting by making coconut flour "chicken nuggets" we will see how this goes ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ #synergysisters #whole30recipes #24poundsdown #thankyouwhole30

I have been cleaning out different areas of our house, and the next step is my closet. I recently found this shirt that I bought 10 years ago and I cringed. This shirt is the epitome of what I fight against. This mindset that if you eat a cupcake you need to โ€œrun it offโ€ or โ€œearnโ€ it first. NO! You eat a cupcake because it is a worth it food to you and you really enjoy the flavor and the celebration it represents. Or you DONT eat a cupcake because itโ€™s not a worth it food to you and you just dot want to in the moment, but you know you are ALLOWED to and can really just eat one whenever you want. You are a human and YOU get to decide this. And on the other side, you run because it part of your routine as a healthy person and you really enjoy that amazing Runnerโ€™s high. Running has nothing to do with cupcakes and cupcakes have nothing to do with running. I am not even going to donate this shirt, it is going in the trash where it and this mindset belongs ๐Ÿ’•โœŒ๐ŸปFOOD FREEDOM FOREVER!
