Update on me: It’s been a year since my diagnosis of Fibromyalgia and I’m finally getting viable treatment. I say viable, not effective. I’m not as fatigued as I usually am but the pain in my shoulder is still intense, regardless of the chiropractic care I’m receiving. The pain physician that I see believes I have a torn shoulder so I’m scheduled for imaging, next week. I am suffering from severe plantar fasciitis in my left foot, which is requiring me to use a cane when I walk. I’m not sleeping very well because of the pain but all I want to do when I’m awake is lay down because of the fatigue and pain in my neck and shoulder. Sometimes, I think I just don’t know how long I can go on like this but then I realize this kind of stuff doesn’t kill you. It all just makes you suffer, endlessly. My pain level at any given time is a solid 7. So, that’s where I am, a year after my diagnosis. Not really any further than I was, then. #fibromyalgia#chronicpain#fatigue#plantarfasciitis#cfs#invisibleillness

I can’t even tell you how many times I have googled working out with adrenal failure over the past 48 hours.. Why? Because I am confused. For the first time ever, I am actually thinking about how working out TOO MUCH could be causing health issues, or at least not making them any better. ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️
I’m a personal trainer and have spent many years now in the fitness industry, I have always thought of exercise as the key to optimal health, which is still absolutely true. But, now I have figured out the line between excercise for health and OVER excercise actually is very fine but also incredibly detrimental. Unfortunately I figured this out the hard way.
If you don't already know my adrenals are failing. I have gone from being misguided and over trained, to dealing with the loss of a loved one, to comp prep x 2, full time work and a busy mum of 5. I am not surprised that my body’s stress response is on high alert
I know how important movement and strength are to overall health, healing, and happiness, but I also know that my workouts need to look a lot different than they do. I have already written myself program after program.... I'm feeling a little lost and struggling with the part where I need to PULL BACK. After all, I'm an all in kind of gal. I know I can do this. Just like everything in life, keep trying until you get it right. I don't quit here, I just have so much learning to do. I could let this defeat me, or I could use it to light the fire. Follow my insta stories for my daily workouts (starting next week) and my plan of attack! 🌱💪🏼💚#findapositive#alwayslookforward#healthoveraesthetics#noteasy#butnothingworthhavingeveris#bodybuilding#fitmum#fitness#gym#selfworth#health#workout#positivity#motivation#selflove#bodyconfidence#transformation#vegan#vegansofig#fatigue#rest
When you are full of energy and vitality, you have so much more to give the world around you. Its my greatest joy to give the gift of health and live in the gift of health each and every day. Unfortunately, I know there are many who are suffering. Who struggle to get out of bed. Who are overwhelmed. Fatigued Daily. I’m on a mission to eliminate adrenal fatigue so that people can enjoy life with the abundance they were designed for. It’s what I was born for. So let’s start today by breathing deep, letting go of perfection, and making the decision that you are worth prioritizing. Your family and friends, and the world NEED YOU to be well. You have so much abundant life left to live and there is hope for restored energy !
"I am learning new things that heal my body one step at a time." - 21-day challenge to cultivating a healthy relationship with food (see #thrivetobeme and instastories) .
Rain season has started here in Vancouver, but the days are a lot shorter. Did you know that your body stores about 1-2 months of vitamin D? So come December / January, we may be vitamin D deficient if not supplementing? With the negligible vitamin d production during the fall and winter, we are deprived of the sunshine vitamin which helps in the development and maintenance of bones and teeth, and in the absorption and use of calcium and phosphorous. Calcium intake, when combined with sufficient vitamin D, a healthy diet and regular exercise, may reduce the risk of developing osteoporosis. Some symptoms of vitamin D deficiency might include unexplained fatigue, difficulty thinking clearly and muscle weakness. Foods that are naturally high in vitamin D include: egg yolks, mushrooms, salmon, tuna and beef. If you are looking for a supplement, liquid form should include medium chain triglyceride (fatty acid) to help absorb vitamin D or take vitamin D capsule with healthy fats. ☀️ Before supplementing with Vitamin D, it's a good idea to get your levels tested to supplement accordingly.
Coucou les mam's !! Besoin de conseils ce soir... je sens bébé vraiment bas. Il s'appuie contre mon col et parfois je dois arrêter de marcher car ça me fait comme un pic et c'est très désagréable. Je trouve que ça fais un peu tôt pour ressentir ce genre de choses non ? Et puis parfois je n'arrive pas bien à différencier contractions et bébé qui bouge car ça tire vraiment... Toujours ces sensations de châleurs dans la poitrine aussi... enfin je suis assez inquiéte en sachant que la gygy n'a pas vérifié mon col la dernière fois... 34 SA dimanche. Bonne nuit les mam's 😚😚
B12 is a big deal! Read on to learn more. #Repost @beefpros
Are you feeling tired? Weak? Depressed? Did you know numerous diseases/illnesses like MS, cardiovascular disease, infertility, developmental disorders, neurological disorders including dementia can mimic signs and symptoms of B12 deficiencies?
Depending on the study, 6-9% of people (across all ages) are B12 deficient but neurological symptoms can start occurring in the 'low normal' range where almost 40% sit. In fact in Japan & Europe they start interventions when levels are at 500-550pg/mL (450 pg/mL in US).
Not a bad idea reason to eat an excellent source (beef) of B12 today!
Have fun! There are so many things going on in each of our lives and in the world that it might be tempting to give up. Stop caring. Shut everyone and everything out. Please don't. Find your inner light. Find something you love to do. Maybe a game or craft that you loved as a child. Try it again. See if it helps boost your mood and ease the stress. Whatever you do, bring fun into your life. With your friends and family. By yourself. With your pets. I have always found something funny in the medical dramas I find myself in. Yes, you may feel yucky or depressed or anxious or frustrated at having another surgery or yet another infection, but dig deep to find your funny bone. Find the funny in the most mundane situations. You can do it. And it is so good for your self-esteem and well-being. #findthefunny , #healthandhijinx , #havefun , #happiness , #keepyourspiritsup , #depression , #shuttingeveryoneout , #frustration , #chronichealthissuesarefrustrating , #chronichealthissues , #spinabifida , #fatigue , #well -being
It's Friday, the weather is great in NYC and my sales, well let's just say, they need to get their lives together.
In the meantime, enjoy this #ootd where I thrifted and #styled that #Fatigue Army Jacket
