Love me anyway 💙 when you don’t want to, really hate the idea, have so many reasons not to... do it anyway. And by “Me” I mean Yourself 🤗 #mondaymotivation

Reflexology is a type of alternative medicine used to reduce pain by applying pressure to certain zones of your hands and feet. These reflex points correspond to specific parts of your body and are believed to have a healing response when massaged. It’s used as a holistic approach not only for pain but to increase blood circulation, reduce stress, and release toxins that are being stored in your organs and tissues. .
.
This past weekend I had my first reflexology treatment and it was amazing! I typically get a deep tissue massage twice a month as part of my wellness plan and I love the way it makes me feel renewed. During my reflexology treatment I could definitely feel the increased circulation because my stomach started grumbling and I got really hungry. I think there was a detox factor going on from how thirsty I was during and after the treatment. The immediate feeling once it was over was complete relaxation. 💆🏻That bliss feeling lasted a few hours after.
.
It’s interesting to see the spots where I was tender in relation to the reflexology map. My left toe (brain) and middle of my arches (transverse colon) were the most sensitive spots. Pretty interesting given the fact that I’ve felt like my brain was constantly going and worrying and I was feeling a little off in terms of my BMs and intestinal cramps (sorry if that’s TMI, but that’s IBD for ya!) the few days prior to treatment. I’ll be incorporating reflexology into my care plan and definitely recommend it!

My current view. I seem to have picked up a lovely cold virus at my little cousin's 3rd birthday party. Fun times!

All we need is just a lil patience... And some tea of serenity (chamomile, lavender, cinnamon, spearmint, passionflower, rose, and turmeric).

Whether the diagnosis was breast cancer, #interstitialcystitis , #crohns , #gastropheresis , or any other #cancer or #chronicillness, many have found #relief , or #remission in a #plant .

Never leave home without it. If I ever am away from home and end up getting sepsis and can't speak for myself (it's happened to me before from a line infection. Woke up days later in ICU) it's important that whoever finds me knows that I have a port, am TPN dependent and have intestinal failure due to CIPO. Also my allergies and what meds I'm on which changes all the time. The number on this bracelet gives clinicians all my medical info. Plus ☝🏻I want them to know I have a Jpouch should I ever need emerg surgery. Nobody better fuck with my Jpouch! #chronicillness #CIPO #crohns #chronicintestinalpseudoobstruction #intestinalfailure #tpndependent #medicalert

You can't SEE Crohns and Colitis but these diseases matter. 
It matters to 1 in 200 Americans , to the people who suffer from them,  to their families who watch them struggle & wishes they could make it to away, to anyone who hears "but up don't look sick".

Who am I? I'm not a triathlon coach. I'm one of the many fighting for them so we can find cures in our lifetime.

CLC MEMBER FEATURE: At the end of 2003, I began to feel that something was wrong. I was constantly exhausted and I was battling JUST to smile, speak & swallow. We went to different doctors and got a different diagnosis each time. Eventually we realised that it was something more serious and we finally saw a neurologist at the beginning of 2004. She diagnosed me with Myasthenia Gravis within 15 minutes & I was admitted straight away; I was 15.
•
Over the years I have had countless operations including a thymectomy where my sternum was cut open; I had every medicine known to help treat MG; I had perm caths inserted for plasmapheresis: and I’ve  undergone chemo & tried all sorts of immunosuppressants.
•
I was well controlled for 2 years, but then went into full-blown crisis last year & have now been told that my disease has progressed into Refractory Myasthenia Gravis, meaning that it no longer responds to regular treatment. I walk with a cane often, & have to wear a mask to protect myself against bugs & any illness.
•
But, I will never ever give up! I try to find the good in life & have made it my goal to make at least one person smile each day. There are times when I choke on my food; there are times when I can't speak, dress myself or lift my arms above my head; there are times when I battle to walk & climb up stairs; there are times when I drop something that I’m carrying. I am generally exhausted, but I am holding on to hope that things have to improve!

So my crohns was bad last night which meant I didn't go to university today 😥 if I look exhausted in this photo... it's because I am! However, I had my boyfriend @adrianmyrosz come for dinner tonight (which was a pre-planned thing, I refused to cancel even though my condition was a bit crappy) he met my parents for the first time and they liked him! 💖💓😊😇😌 they said he's nice and different to my usual type (which isn't a bad thing!) they saw how happy he makes me 🙈🙊 I was SO nervous about them meeting! But it actually went great! Now me and morphine dazed butt need to sleep so I can go to class tomorrow!!! #boyfriend #meetingmyparents #firstmeeting #wentwell #crohns #ibd #invisibledisease #chronicallysick #tatts #ink #inked #tattooed #inkedgirls #tattooedgirls #girlswithink #girlswithtattoos #pale #blonde #girl #girly #nomakeup #septum #dress #forever21 #fashion

I've decided to submit this photo and another one for 2018 calendar entries of @stomawise.  Honestly it was a big step showing my bag to the world.. it's my reality, it's my new life and I am happy and thankful for having this bag which really saved my life, so why should I be ashamed of showing it? I am trying to live my life as normal as possible, and most of time it's normal...my bag doesn't prevent me to do the things that I like. I keep my smile on my face and I am happy, first step to be happy is the acceptance.

Haha HI! 👋🏽 Crohns leaves me with a vitamin D deficiency, my daily medication for it makes me extremely sensitive to the sun, AND I love sunshine more than anything in the world. Yet another strange life riddle I guess - the only thing to do? GOOFY GRIN.

It's hard to argue with results. Trying going off Keto for a few days and my body just hated it. Did not respond well at all and it was not pretty. I'll do what I have to do I guess. #Fitness #Golf #RemissionGoals2017

Why I choose to workout and eat well...
#1 I have Crohn's disease and working out and eating healthy keeps my symptoms at bay and allows me to take zero medication. (Note: This does not work for everyone with IBD)
#2 I had a baby so my body needs to get back to where it was! I miss being comfortable in my body and happy with my appearance. But even while I'm striving to progress, the feeling after working out can boost my self confidence, which of course I love! 
I love everything the gym and what healthy food has to offer. I get sick less often, it helps so can drop my fat percentage and gain lean muscle mass. Needless to say, I'm ready for my soup I prepped to be done so I can have some before I head to Anytime Fitness this evening and break a sweat. 🏋️‍♀️

Nice cream bowl 🍌 It's starting to get colder but for some reason my body is craving this. I'm trying to practice intuitive eating... At least I think that's what it's called. If I feel like having some fries, I bake some fries. If I feel like having something crunchy and salty I eat seaweed snacks. If I want something sweet, I have fruit or juice. If I want something filling and satisfying, I straight up just eat pasta 🍝 😋 I listen to what I want and give it healthy alternatives. So far, I'm feeling great.

205lb x 6reps

The reps that are hard are what counts.
.
Practice and do things you least enjoy. Thats where you'll get a lot of growth.

6 months ago I was squatting 95lbs. I've since double that. Nothing is impossible, it just takes time and work.

My mom and grandma took me with them as they ran errands and I alerted both of them! I alerted my grandma for her migraine and my mama for her low blood sugar. I'm glad I could do my job while they were shopping, but it's so boring walking around a mall with girls!

Extremely happy about this Yoke walk from this past weekend, 650 pounds 50 feet in 13 seconds at 198 BW 💪

The road to 700 continues! 
I remember when I thought 600 pounds was impossible back when I was 20 pounds heavier 😂

Smart training and most importantly changing my mindset from "this is going to be hard" to "fuck yea I got this!" has helped me break through these previous maxes.

It's all mental 🤔

Waiting my turn to be taken back. Thankfully,  I've got the Mom with me to distract me from the hungry pains and keep me smiling. Even though I've been here before and I know I'll be okay.  There's still an underlying fear that comes with having a chronic illness. The unknown. But I got this #shit and I know whose hands I'm in. Plus, I've found that laughter goes with anything. Even a hospital gown. #crohns #ibd #crohnsdisease #chronicillness #faith #bestmom #laughterisgoodforthesoul #smile #stoic #tenacity

Switching up my training has definitely made an impact on my body. Skills that used to be easy have now become hard. Skills that used to be hard have now become easy. Like kick overs have become harder because my shoulders have become tight. However, my handstands have gotten better because my back muscles have gotten stronger. Last year I did a lot of body weight strength training and I had more flexibility than I do today. This year I added weights into my regiment. I have gotten stronger but my muscles have become tight and it’s harder to stretch. That’s not to say you can’t have flexibility and strength, you can. But it’s finding a balance between the two.

And so after just six months living with my stoma, I said farewell this afternoon. We may have to meet again in the future if things don't work out, but that's cool. It gave me back my life and helped me beat ulcerative colitis. I'll be forever indebted to this amazing gift.

J-pouch, it's over to you. I've got your back, if you've got mine. So let's go kick some ass! But not literally please. I'm still a bit tender... 🙈

Vanity. A few people that I follow on here have recently posted about this - I thought I would add my two cents to it too.
-
First omission - I’m vain. I care about how I look and want to look the best I can. But it’s deeper then that - there is something that drives my vanity.
-
That thing that I’m pointing to. Thats where my vanity comes from. It’s my motivation. My reminder and also my leveller. Openly, I wouldn’t get rid of this scar for love nor money.
-
Having a nice chap carve me open just over two years ago has given me a lot of perspective on life. It’s shown me what I love doing and reminds me when I think I’m having a hard time that it could be a lot worse; it did used to be.
-
My posts in a way are designed to show off a bit. Not to you or anyone of my followers - but to the old me. To show the old me how far I’ve come.
-
Going back the opening statement about Vanity. Yes there are some people on here that post ‘belfies’ or pictures of that amazing glute workout that they’ve just had. Okay. Cool. 
But maybe there is more to Instagram galleries then just your ass?
-
Pretty sure if my gallery was like that I’d be reported and locked up…
-
I’m going to change what my Instagram is about; slightly. Bit less about me & more for you.
-
P.S I fucking love my scar.
P.P.S Go and absolutely smash your goals in the gym or outside of it!

I'm on my way! We have to do #thework! We have to push through those obstacles no matter how long they are in our lives. The quote: the universe will keep giving you the same lesson until you learn it. Is so damn true. I wasn't listening. I kept walking into the same situation. Abuse. Emotional abuse. There is no blame. There are no mistakes. Those people are brought into your life to teach you something. stop and let the lesson be heard. Heal. Heal yourself and carry on. Strength is in you. Strength is the work. The work we have to do, its creating the person you are becoming.
•
The work takes time. It's every minute of every day. Sometimes if feels like it will never get better. Most often it's like a curse, like the perpetual motion you once had is gone and highly doubt it will ever come back. Will this transformation be complete? Is this a thing?  Is this what's suppose to be happening? Is it ever going to end? Why is this happening?
•
Working at my life to get to this point has been incredible. I can say that now that I'm here. A year ago or even a couple of months ago it wasn't incredible. It was painful, hard, complicated, confusing and defeating.
•
I still have uncertainty, but then again who doesn't,but it's not as damning. There's no panic or doom to it. There seems to be a good possibility there is an end. That end is good. That end means the crisis has passed and I am out of the woods. That crisis is almost behind me.

Never been so happy to be unremarkable. I got the results of my CT scan today. I was expecting the worst. But, everything looks better than it has in over a year. I completely believe it's due to the changes I made to my diet.

My bestie @nie_raby always seems to just know even from across the ocean... Yes, the last point does say 'to bond over food and toilet'. Having IBD means being prudish about all things bowels, poo and toilet goes out the window. Finding those special people who are totally unfazed by your unfiltered outbursts about all things toilet related and join you in your unapologetic terrible toilet humour, can make those frequent embarrassing moments so much more tolerable. Let's face it we all poo and no doubt have had at least one embarrassing tale to tell, so perhaps it's about time we put the prudish social conditioning to one side and open the conversation about all things gutsy...
