We're about to take a big step! 🏠 Our number one goal for 2021 was to move out of our respective parents' houses and into a place together.

About a week ago, Amanda was feeling down, so she wrote a list of all the reasons why so wasn't feeling great.

Who doesn't enjoy going out to eat? When we first got together, we ate out at restaurants almost every time we saw each other. And even now, because we still live at our respective family's homes, we still go out to eat at restaurants pretty often and sometimes get questioned as to why. In this episode, we talk about how being in a relationship has affected our eating habits, the common criticisms we hear about going out to eat,  why we go out to eat often, and much more! -------------------- Have a question?

AM In The PM #61: Your Partner Is In A Bad Mood, But You Didn't Cause It
Your partner isn't always going to be happy, which is understandable. Sometimes, you'll do something stupid and make them upset. In that case, own up to it, apologize, and learn from it. Other times, they're upset and it's affecting the relationship, but you didn't cause it. This is a more difficult situation to navigate. When the source of the problem is external, you both need to dig a little deeper to find a solution. In this episode, we talk about all of this, plus answer some questions about our relationship! -------------------- Have a question?

AM In The PM #60: The Importance of Sleep & How We've Improved Ours
We love sleep. Who doesn't? Right now, we don't live together and we have very different routines. This has led to many times where Mark is tired and Amanda is energetic or vice versa. It's a tiny problem, but one that will be at least partially solved later this year when we move in together. Sleep is important, but we also want it to be high quality sleep. Over the past few years, we have both taken steps to improve our sleeping environments. We've done things like try different pillows, upgrade mattresses, and much more. We've had some success and hope that sharing our experience will help you too! -------------------- Have a question?

AM In The PM #53: Taking Risks & Seizing Opportunities
Over the last couple of years, we've come to realize that life without a certain amount of "risk" is very unfulfilling. Now, we're not saying to do anything super crazy, but we try to always be open to new opportunities.  Risk is a very subjective thing. The level of risk associated with an opportunity varies from person to person. Simply put, some people are less fearful than others. For this reason, it's important to understand your own risk tolerance and not judge other people by theirs. Incredible outcomes are born out of rare opportunities. In order to seize those rare opportunities, you must be willing to take the risk. -------------------- Have a question?

AM In The PM #42: Amanda Is Becoming A Minimalist!
Way back in episode 16, we talked about minimalism. Mark talked about how it has positively impacted his life over the past 3 years and Amanda couldn't fully wrap her head around the concept. Fast forward to today and a ton has changed. Recently, Amanda wanted to watch "Minimalism: A Documentary About the Important Things". After we watched it together, Amanda had a much better understanding of what minimalism meant. Then, on January 1, 2021, we watched the brand new film "The Minimalists: Less Is Now". This one inspired Amanda to do even more. Since then, she's started to audit the things in her life and remove the things that don't add value. It's all about intentional living.

AM In The PM #39: Friendship Is A Two-Way Street
We often talk about relationships on this podcast, but we recently had a great conversation about friends and wanted to expand on it in this episode. It's an important topic because it's relevant to everyone. Understanding friendship at a deeper level and working to build stronger, longer-lasting bonds is key for social growth Like a relationship with your partner, friendships can be difficult at times. They require a lot of effort and they vary in intensity as time passes. People evolve and that can lead to friendships growing apart; sometimes for better, sometimes for worse. Above all, you need to do what's best for you. The one thing to remember is that no matter who comes and goes along the way, as long as you're moving forward, you're headed in the right direction. For every friend that fades away, there is a new one to be made. -------------------- Have a question?

AM In The PM #38: Our Thoughts On Becoming Influencers & Amanda's Big Announcement
The term "Influencer" is a funny one. We feel it has gotten a bad rap because there are many internet personalities that want to call themselves "influencers" without actually providing valuable content and having a positive impact on people. This year, Mark has been trying to do it the "right" way. Learn, implement, reflect, & share; that's been his strategy. Amanda has played a key role in all of it, and now she wants to start something for herself. She's started working on her personal brand and is excited to share it with you all very soon! We've been on a journey this year. We've accomplished a lot and grown more as individuals than ever before. We have big plans on the horizon and we are the happiest we've ever been!

AM In The PM #37: Our Complicated Relationships With Food
We both have complicated relationships with food. While our current living situations don't lend themselves to healthy eating, that's not a good excuse. Like everything else in life, progress in health is a process. We're documenting our journey and hope our experiences can help others! Mark has been through a couple of transformations with his diet and exercise routine throughout his life, but still is not where he'd like to be. He recently tried the carnivore diet but isn't confident that it's the best choice for him. His biggest issue is overeating. It's something to control now, so it doesn't negatively affect him one day. Amanda has tried some diets in the past but really doesn't want to restrict her food choices. She has some long-term digestive issues that might be improved by something more aggressive like the carnivore diet, but that isn't an attractive option to her. The knowledge and understanding of macronutrients would be of benefit and something like If It Fits Your Macros (IIFYM) might be the best option.

AM In The PM #35: The Problem With Being Too Nice & Why Authenticity Is Important
We consider ourselves to be very kind people. We don't have any true hate in our hearts and we always give others the respect they deserve. Sometimes, however, this leads to being "too nice" and getting taken advantage of. In theory, this is easily avoidable, but in reality, it can be challenging. Sometimes, it's as simple as not wanting to disappoint someone, so we just say "Yea, I can do that". Other times, when it pertains to business, it can be more costly. It's crucial to understand yourself. You need to know what you want, what you don't want, and be strong enough to deliver the appropriate response. In this episode, we talk about how being "too nice" has gotten us into annoying situations, why it's important to always be yourself, and much more! -------------------- Thank you for listening!

You each have to lead happy and fulfilled lives as individuals if you want the union between you and your partner to last. In this episode, we talk about how we've changed as individuals, the goals we have for the future, how we plan to achieve them, and much more! -------------------- Thank you for listening!

AM In The PM #30: Masturbation & Pornography
We started this podcast to discuss real topics about relationships, even the ones that make some people feel uncomfortable. We believe that more communication and openness is always the answer, no matter what subject. In this episode, we share our thoughts on masturbation and pornography. Most people have experience with these, but there isn't enough education and communication coming from the right people. Many innocent adolescents and teens learn about sex from their peers, who also don't know anything. The blind leading the blind isn't a good approach and we will not subject our future children to that. -------------------- Thank you for listening!

AM In The PM #25: 4-Year Anniversary Special
As of September 9, 2020, we have been together for 4 years! Not only have we grown as a couple, but also as individuals. We started out as immature kids and have evolved into young adults chasing big dreams and achieving our goals. Our relationship is exceptional precisely because of this: we're two independent individuals that have each bought into "us" as a unit. We each have our own passions that we pursue, but our commitment to "us" compliments and strengthens everything that we do. Find someone to grow with. Someone that builds you up and makes you feel as if you can accomplish anything. Then, never let them go. -------------------- Thank you for listening!

AM In The PM #16: How Minimalism Has Improved Our Relationship
For the past 3 or so years, Mark has started to take a minimalistic, purpose-driven approach to the items he brings into his environment. The idea of excessive clutter is very overwhelming to him. He believes that if your environment is well-kept, your mind will be free to focus on the task at hand. Within the past year, Amanda has drastically increased her focus in this area, as well. She has reduced the number of unused items in her space and now thinks twice before bringing unnecessary distractions into her environment. We feel that being on the same page in any relationship is crucial. Just like many other things, hoarding and clutter can be a huge area of conflict. We do our best to mitigate conflicts like these before they get out of hand. -------------------- Thank you for listening! Our Website: aminthepmpodcast.com Follow on social @aminthepmpodcast

We'd be fools to say that nothing in our relationship bothers us. It's just not realistic. Every couple is made up of 2 individuals with different upbringings, habits, and thought processes. There's bound to be some things that aren't ideal. That being said, there are also many things we love about our relationship and each other. When you find the right person, you start to realize all the little things that you can't believe you once lived without. Both parts are equally important to talk about.
