This blog is meant for tracking workouts, discussing my diet, venting my frustrations, showing off my family, and anything else I want..

I promote body positivity, even when I don't like what I see in my own mirror.

I track #mandyqueenofsquats; so tag anything you wanna share (especially if it's your adorable face).

Anon is always on if you have any questions about anything ♥

Hey Mandy! I hope this isn't annoying but I wasn't able to be online yesterday--did I make it into the Autumn Slim Down Challenge? I don't see my name on any of the groups, unless I'm just blind haha, thanks :) xx

There’s a good chance i typoed it, but if not, I believe you’re in group 5 ♥

What was your aha moment?

At what point did you go, “enough is enough, I need to change,” and start your health journey?

nomursi it’s so not cool. Like I haven’t woke myself up crying in 15 years, and the dream that finally does it is a cow I don’t even have. Like wtf brain.

But wait okay my dreams though.

I dreamt my pet baby cow got hurt so these men were taking her away to the slaughter house. And I cried so hard I woke up in a puddle of my own tears.

And just the other night, I had anxiety so bad that someone was either in the kitchen or would break in, I cried.

What is wrong with me.

Tell me I’m cute or something so I can like roll my eyes at you but then blush when I think about it later

I don’t know where the 70 ounces of water I drank this evening went, but I can tell you it’s definitely not being peed out. Dehydration is strong today.




Hardest thing to answer: Describe yourself.

i.e. how do i talk about my positives without sounding cocky and negatives without coming across as self depreciating 

actually this is pretty easy for me to do.

me: Martial artist, who trains a lot, works out  a lot. Has various interests, and is blunt and straight forward.

prob the most neutral way to describe me.

its not the hard really. just say what you do and how you think, and thats a description of yourself.

I’m a liberal that loves cooking and lifting.

That is easy.

Kendall made something easy that was previously awful! Yay!







Just so everyone is aware, there is a bunch of misleading info being spread around re: ALS research - the “27%” figure is based on previous years’ annual funding; furthermore, the remainder goes to improving the quality of life of those suffering from ALS. Given that the annual funding is approximately 16M, that’s just over 4M spent on decreasing their suffering. It isn’t greed, it’s a lack of money.”

Shut up already.

The ALS Association has a 4-star rating from Charity Watchdog. 

And the next time you start to complain about a charity either a) working on multiple fronts (because that’s what ALSA does—both seeking a cure and helping people suffering now) or b) daring to have administration expenses—let’s see how long you can last, much less tackle a cause, without printer paper and an internet connection. 

As someone who has watched a family member die from a neuro-degenerative disease; funding to develop better wheelchairs and bedsore creams is *just* as important as funding research to cure the disease itself…

A friend of mine posted an update from one of HER friends to FB earlier.  Her dad has ALS.  The ALS foundation came out to see if they could put in a ramp for his wheelchair, but they couldn’t afford it because of the kind of ramp he needed for the kind of house they had.

This week they called back and said hey, the thing is, we suddenly have a bunch of money, so we’re coming out to build that ramp.  And they did.  She posted pics.

So if you feel like bitching about the ice bucket challenge…reconsider.

I sweated so much today, if it wasn’t for burger king, I’d be down 11 pounds or some shit.

Tomorrow is a fun filled day of fruits, veggies, water, and possibly two trips to the gym.

In the morning with mom for weights, and maybe the afternoon for cardio with Donna.


Was so hungry I had a chicken thigh and drum stick.. dipped in mayo because everything is better with hellmans.
