I posted yesterday about meal prepping and mentioned that I made a taco salad bar. Soooo many messages with questions 😂 It’s a divided lunch container with lettuce, taco meat, cheese, and literally whatever toppings you want. 🤷‍♀️ you just keep them separate so it keeps better for multiple days. Also #lifehack steal condiment/sauce packets whenever you can and keep a bin in your fridge. I couldn’t tell you how many times that has saved the day! 😂#cheapAF But for real, this meals cost break down: $1.88 pound of beef (sale price) $2.00 bag of cheese $.89 sour cream $.77 bag of lettuce $.49 aldi taco seasoning Free salsa I made 4 salads for my husband’s lunches and I still have a half bag of cheese, 1/3 container of sour cream, and salsa for daaaays! #mealswithmanda #cheapmealprep #budgetmeals #tacosalad #lowcarblunch #mealprep #lunchbox #lunchideas #healthyfood
“Hey, what’s your least favorite thing about surgery?” Hands-fucking-down: the toll it has taken on my hair. I’ve been diligent with my vitamins, protein + water is my number 1 goal, I consume more omega-3 than I think might be healthy. I text book do everything “right” but I also kicked ass and lost 110 pounds in less than 9 months. It’s inevitable. I will say, the baby hairs are slightly less annoying than the CLUMPS I was loosing daily! You win some, you lose some...but as long as you keep moving, you’ll always come out on top! #vsgproblems #vsghairloss #regrowth #babyhairs #my168dayadventure #march27vsg #vsg #vsggirl #postopVSG #vsggoals #gastricsleeve #vsginstacrew #WLScommunity #vsgcommunity #weightloss #weightlosstransformation #wls #vsgjourney #vsglife #vsgsisters #ssdgm #selflove #changes #goals #infertility #PCOS #bariatric #mercydesmoinesbariatric
Well, shit. ☕️ Is this like a metaphor to “you’re really close to loosing your shit, but hang in there because the end result is delicious?” Or is it a “bitch, pay attention” message? #coffee #keurig #coffeelover #caffeine #mycupflowethover #perfectpour #highlandergrogg @cameronscoffee
Today I: -did laundry -reorganized my kitchen shelves -cleaned out my freezer and bought shelves -ran some errands for my #sidehustle #strippedwithamanda -made: egg roll in a bowl, fried cauli-rice, taco salad bar, egg bites, banana bread, homemade poke, portioned our veggies/hard salami/cheese for snacks -bought new cute boots and a purse at goodwill -and got my animals all acclimated to the new living situation for the next few weeks If that’s not #vsgenergy I dunno what is! #my168dayadventure #march27vsg #vsg #vsggirl #postopVSG #vsggoals #gastricsleeve #vsginstacrew #WLScommunity #vsgcommunity #weightloss #weightlosstransformation #wls #vsgjourney #vsglife #vsgsisters #ssdgm #selflove #changes #goals #infertility #PCOS #bariatric #mercydesmoinesbariatric
Thank you @kylalichty for the courage to get my own ahi tuna!! 😂 the guy at the meat counter said they have sashimi grade ahi tuna steaks in the freezer section, too! I opted for those this time. It’s marinating!! Honestly, @freshthyme has such affordable/delicious/healthy poke....it’s almost not worth making it, but if I’m ever craving it I can have the ingredients at home! #vsgeats #mealprep #my168dayadventure #march27vsg #vsg #vsggirl #postopVSG #vsggoals #gastricsleeve #vsginstacrew #WLScommunity #vsgcommunity #weightloss #weightlosstransformation #wls #vsgjourney #vsglife #vsgsisters #ssdgm #selflove #changes #goals #infertility #PCOS #bariatric #mercydesmoinesbariatric #mealswithmanda
March 26, 2018 January 19, 2019 110 pounds different A lot of inches lost And a hopeful wife that is closer to having a baby than she has been in a very long time. This surgery wasn’t just for me. It was for my husband who wants to be a dad so badly. It was for my sisters (and probably my brother) who want a niece or nephew. It was for my friends that are scared I am going to kidnap their children..... Surgery is life changing and not just for yourself. Take time to thank the people around you for putting up with you during these changes. You’ve probably been a handful. #waiting #somedaybaby #rainbowbaby #my168dayadventure #march27vsg #vsg #vsggirl #postopVSG #vsggoals #gastricsleeve #vsginstacrew #WLScommunity #vsgcommunity #weightloss #weightlosstransformation #wls #vsgjourney #vsglife #vsgsisters #ssdgm #selflove #changes #goals #infertility #PCOS #bariatric #mercydesmoinesbariatric
Meet Wilson! 🥰 My sister is going out of town for a little over a month so we are watching her dog (our fur-nephew) for her. Rammus takes some time getting used to him being around, but Alo never seems to mind. We give more treats when cousin Wilson is around. 🤷‍♀️ it’s why we are his favorite. #2doggosandacat #adventureswithWilson
Do you ever realize you need something at the WORST times? It has been brought to my attention that my husband has my ice scraper......also, my wipers need to be replaced....🤦‍♀️❄️ #whydoilivewheretheairhurtsmyface #iowawinter #twomonthslate #whydidwebuyahousewithoutagarage #impatient #firsttimehomebuyer
9 am and my kitchen is already 90% reorganized. I even gave myself a meal prepping shelf. 😍 my nerdy little heart is super excited about that. Need to get my dishes done to finish the last cupboard. Doing a cleaning cycle on my dishwasher 🤢 if you haven’t done one of those, I highly recommend it. 4 individual cups of vinegar in different spots in your racks, sprinkle baking soda over the bottom and run normal cycle. My dishes come out muuuch cleaner and it doesn’t have a funk smell in it 😂 Saturday mornings a year ago looked a lot different: Starbucks, donut run, lay around thinking about everything I need to get done. Today I got up at 7 and started in shortly after. Going to run some errands, come back and either meal prep or work on laundry. I am going to claim that my motivation AND energy is my FAVORITE #nsv #vsgenergy #saturdaymorning #mariekondowho #my168dayadventure #march27vsg #vsg #vsggirl #postopVSG #vsggoals #gastricsleeve #vsginstacrew #WLScommunity #vsgcommunity #weightloss #weightlosstransformation #wls #vsgjourney #vsglife #vsgsisters #ssdgm #selflove #changes #goals #infertility #PCOS #bariatric #mercydesmoinesbariatric
Rammus has to touch Alo at. all. times. If they are laying down, Rammus will stretch as far as he can to touch him. It makes me smile every time we see it. Alo used to grumble every time Rammus looked at him, I think he’s starting to love his little brother #dogsofinstagram #catsofinstagram #furbabies #doggo #kitty #dog #cat #catmom #dogmom #gingerpets #Alo #rammustatum #bedhogs #cosleeping #kingsizebed
We are human. We know sugar isn’t ideal after surgery. So if you wanna come on here and lie, you’re only lying to yourself ;-) How does you body react to sugar? Have you experienced dumping? Tell me the good bad and ugly! Me: Sugar doesn’t immediately effect me 🤷‍♀️ but!! The that night I can’t sleep. Im cranky and irritable the next day. But the next day I feel like I am on a cleanse 💩💩 and honestly sometimes I eat a cookie just so I can poop without #smoothmovetea Tell me your experiences #my168dayadventure #march27vsg #vsg #vsggirl #postopVSG #vsggoals #gastricsleeve #vsginstacrew #WLScommunity #vsgcommunity #weightloss #weightlosstransformation #wls #vsgjourney #vsglife #vsgsisters #ssdgm #selflove #changes #goals #infertility #PCOS #bariatric #mercydesmoinesbariatric

I am grateful for the opportunities I have been given at my job. I need to remember that no matter how stressful it can be..I am blessed to have a full time job with benefits that allowed me my surgery that has changed my life. #longhours #12hourdays #stressfulattimes #thankful #grateful #blessed #fulltimejob #surgeryscheduler #culturefacilitator #benefits #insurance #vsg #postopvsg
Yooo. I’m telling you...I NEED competition to kick ass. If you don’t do anything else, get yourself a wearable: #applewatch #fitbit #polar anything that allows you to compete against people. I’m tired as fuck, but because @millermeghane came outta NO WHERE with these points, i am about to go wash my face, put my workout clothes on and go do another workout! 😡😚💪 cause I am not about to lose on a Tuesday! 😂 #motivation #workout #crushingit #my168dayadventure #march27vsg #vsg #vsggirl #postopVSG #vsggoals #gastricsleeve #vsginstacrew #WLScommunity #vsgcommunity #weightloss #weightlosstransformation #wls #vsgjourney #vsglife #vsgsisters #ssdgm #selflove #changes #goals #infertility #PCOS #bariatric #mercydesmoinesbariatric
Sometimes I take this man for granted. The past few weeks he’s been getting his health back on track. I give him a hard time because I am not a fan of keto (or any type of “diet” to be honest besides just “clean eating” and portion control, but that’s another story) but he’s been kicking butt. Maybe to prove me wrong, maybe to get healthier...whatever his motivation, I don’t care. He’s also been a trooper with my crazy home renovation ideas. He rolls his eyes and says “yes, dear”. Tonight I came home after a weird, chaotic, mentally exhausting day to a clean kitchen, laundry done, and had I not kicked ass in the kitchen so we didn’t have to cook this week....he said he would have made me dinner. It’s not easy to love me. I am difficult as fuck. But he does it so well and I fall in love with him more and more every day. 🥰 #hesmybestfriend #happyspousehappyhouse #homerenovation #vsgspouse #bestsupporter #equalparts #ilovemyhusband #spouse #hubby
