I’m Just a Mom Who Loves
Craft Beer and House Music!
I'm Mandi, a Dietitian, wife, and mama of 2 kids and 2 bulldogs. I’m kinda obsessed with all things craft beer, Nordstrom, spinning and shrimp & grits. Most nights (after schlepping kids everywhere), I can be found watching The Real Housewives and double fisting: cold beer in one hand and bowl of Cheez-Its in the other.
You too? Awesome, we’re spirit animals! Lets have a few virtual beers together, laugh as we try new dance moves (you Floss?) and talk all things Housewives.
I spent most of my years oblivious to all the beauty life has to offer. Instead I focused so much energy on seeking perfection in everything, especially my body. This lead to years of disordered eating, the inability to foster meaningful relationships and no way in hell living the life I so badly craved. Instead I lived in a shit storm of constant disappointment, guilt, hiding and was left with zero self-confidence and zero sense of self-worth. After hitting rock bottom and almost losing everything, I decided I no longer wanted to lean on my eating disorder for comfort and enough was enough. It was time to take my life back and rewrite all the rules (insert badassery here)!
Life Is Beautifully Messy
Everything happens for a reason. Do you believe it?
It’s so difficult to find purpose when bad things happen. I’ve been through plenty of shit storms that I could write a book juicier than Fifty Shades. It sounds cliche but looking back through all the pain it’s clear everything truly does happen for a reason. Power lies within the choice to grow from the pain and throw shade at the negativity. Every single shitty thing has led me here: stronger each day and focused on living my best life.
Now, I’m sharing the truths that broke me free of pain to help you live a life free from perfectionism and empowering you to embrace who you are and live life to the fullest. By recognizing that true beauty lies within and we aren’t defined by our weight or appearance, we can be set free.
We can’t control everything that happens and life will never be perfect, but we can trust that each experience will shape us and guide us to unstoppable badassery.
