Happy ♥️ Monday, everyone! We are currently packing for a week down in Utah to play @lagoonpark I think my husband & I are more excited than the kids are. What can I say, we are BIG kids 😜 This trip is important to me because two years ago I had to get off a roller coaster because my hips were too wide. Now I'm 100+ pounds down and ready to ride EVERYTHING!
here's a fun lil intro:
i was twelve years old when i was diagnosed with depression and anxiety. i was twenty-two when i was diagnosed with ADHD on top of that.
i, much like many others, have suffered through the ins and outs of these illnesses. i've felt disconnected from my body several times, i've been foggy, i've felt weak to the point where i could only lay in bed and stare at the wall without really seeing it. i've felt the earth shattering chest pain and rush of emotions when a panic attack is starting and the fear that you can't stop it, only get through it. i've dealt with losing interest in things that i loved doing due to my lack of motivation, stability, and attention span.
all of these side effects of my menta illness are honestly just the beginning, and there's so much more to it that i could list here.
the point isn't about getting attention, instead this is to OFFER attention. if you feel any of these symptoms and you're not sure what to do, please reach out to me! i don't care if we've never spoken or if we even don't get along. no one should deal with these side effects alone. I AM HERE. Constantly. Always.
I'm going to make it a point to post positive mental health posts every so often on here, so here's where i'll start.
GUYS! How freaking sweet is @a.better.bre ?!?!?! I got this in the mail today! Protein chips I couldn't find where I live and some precious earrings! I ❤️ it! Thanks so much! I am so grateful to be part of such an incredible community of sweet people like bre!
@Regrann from @sweetbabygurl86 - @hercs_nutrition_kingston for the win yet again, and of course I had to indulge in a strawberry banana smoothie as well while I was there, before my tan.. Always great to see yah and have a quick convo, always very informative and listens to your needs especially as an RNY patient we need different things, and he is able to learn right along with me for what we can handle! Can't wait to try the pre work out, and hope it agrees with me! Down 72lbs 28 more till goal!! ❤

We're always more than happy to help anyway we can, and glad for the opportunity to educate ourselfs a bit more on post RNY nutrition! Congratulations on how far you've come on your fitness journey, keep up the great work!! 💪👌👏
So I'm not gonna lie, today was challenging for me. I had to stop, take a few thousand breaths and water breaks haha but I got it done. Day 8 of 21! Making the shift, mentally and physically. Pushing as hard as I can!
