I'm totally on board with eating more, lifting heavy, and leaning out. 🍴🏋🏻‍♀️

I'd never tried a grilled cheese sandwich before coeliac diagnosis, but this gluten free version I made with @sainsburys gluten free bread is 👌😋 🧀🍞 #yum #food #instafood #foodporn #yummy #foodoftheday #foodstagram #grilledcheese #cheese #foodie #glutenfree #freefrom #singluten #coeliacdisease #coeliac #celiac #celiacdisease #ibd #ulcerativecolitis #invisibleillness #chronicillness #ibdwarrior #autoimmunedisease #lunch #tasty
I found myself listening to Kesha’s newer song “praying” yesterday while heading to work. The lyrics mixed with the passion she sang with overwhelmed me and I began to sob uncontrollably.
.
.
I’m usually okay talking about how I’m feeling with others. I’ll tell them I’m feeling crappy or that I’m pissed off my symptoms are back. But what I don’t share all the time is how it affects me. I get T E R R I F I E D every single time the word “flare” creeps back into my mind, which is hard for others to understand. I think back to the traumatic times I had as a child where flares lasted 6+ months to years, where I looked like a skeleton or a balloon in photos. When I can remember exactly what memories I was robbed of and what “good times” Crohn’s managed to ruin. I think of the one complication that happened 10+ years ago every. single. day that caused me to need Pearle today. And then there’s feeling hopelessness. Like, really? After all this hard work and the time I put this past year to be successful this is how my body is going to repay me? With fatigue and joint pain and extra-intestinal symptoms up the wazoo? .
.
.
I think it’s safe to say I have a bit of trauma from my disease and with good reason. But today after seeing how I reacted to listening to one song on the radio I realized I wasn’t dealing with my emotions lately. I’m too good at suppressing those hard emotions, as we all are. But it’s important to feel them when they’re raw like that. And I’m comfortable sharing  moments like these with you all here on my platform because this my safe place to do so.

Goodmorning with a cappuccino made with lactose free milk and some cinnamon on top. Yummm. Today is not a very good day so I’m going to watch The Good Place on Netflix and recharge my battery.

I know I’m going off on a little tangent today but for the last few days I’ve been really annoyed and angry at something that I had seen a few days ago and I came pretty close to losing my cool and doing something stupid. Sharing my story yesterday helped me a bit and after seeing this quote it kinda calmed me down to an extent. I’m still upset and don’t know how to approach it but it’s better than being extremely angry and saying things I may regret. #quoteoftheday #quotestoliveby #crohnsdisease #crohnscolitis #ileostomy #ostomy #ostomate #colitis #ulcerativecolitis #ibd #ibdsucks #ibdwarrior #crohnswarrior #irritablebowelsyndrome #inflammatoryboweldisease #ulcerativecolitiswarrior #ucwarrior #chronicillness #invisibleillness #superstoma #stomalife #ostomyawareness

Good morning! 😊
I thought it would be a good day to post a selfie in normal clothes. There's another one in gym clothes though, to prove that it's really me 😂
.

Training was 3 supersets, 8 reps of each exercise. Pleased to say that I've progressed to 16kg on dumbbell rows 😀

3.5 month check up 🌸
•••
How fancy is the building where my surgeon’s office is? Had my check up was this morning. I still have stitches that will take a long time to dissolve, but it’s ok to leave them in.
•••
I’m doing well, so the plan is to do a scope in the rectum next year in May. This is to make sure there’s no dysplasia cells there. If yes, that’ll speed up j-pouch surgery. If no, I can keep the bag for longer.
•••
I plan to keep the bag for a while though. How long did you J-pouches wait between surgeries?

No workout this morning, I'm exhausted! It's been a busy couple of days and I haven't had enough rest. So I listened to my body, slept a little longer and skipped my workout. But Millie still needs her walk and she is ready to go!

My breakfast for this week 🙌🏼Amaranth Porridge 🥄. It's amaranth grain cooked like you would oatmeal but the liquid I cooked it in is almond milk with nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon, and maple syrup so it smells & tastes soooo AMAZING!!! I really want everyone to know that healthy eating can be so delicious! Every week I am excited about my meal plan. If you need help getting started with meal planning for your goals & great recipes, I help all of my clients with this and just launched a one week program for people who are interested but want to try and see if it's for them first. ☝🏼dawnhermanfitness@Gmail.com 😋

When Ulcerative Colitis made me lose control of my body I latched onto anything I could control in my life. I became passionately OCD - my cupboards were colour coordinated, my days were scheduled down to the minute…even my spice cupboard was alphabeticalised. With this came crippling anxiety. Just the thought of leaving my house sent me into a panic attack and I’d starve myself to avoid accidents. Having an ostomy bag has allowed me to gain control of my body again. I’m now so much calmer, I’m more spontaneous and for the first time in 5 years I feel free…and thanks to my stoma I can actually start my mornings with a coffee before going out for the day.

Life can be tough especially when making big decisions. My blog this week talks about the massive decision I have made and what happened when I was being sick with my Stoma. 😷 Read it here: https://semicolon563.wordpress.com/blog/ 💩😊

For this post and I’m not sure how many of you will actually read this but since I don’t have too many pictures to share of my past history of my journey, I think I’m gonna go a different route and share my story and do a little info and awareness for our chronic illness and show a serious side to me especially for my real life friends who are probably wondering about my rants.....lol. I was 16 years old when I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease. I had never heard of the illness or was I even prepared for what I was getting into when it first hit me. When the symptoms started to manifest I blew it off as something that would go away. Unfortunately, it kept getting worse. My mother dragged to a doctor to figure out what was wrong only for him to tell her that I was on drugs probably doing cocaine. My mother flipped out and if there’s one thing I’ve learned, not only should you never piss off a Latina but don’t EVER piss off one who’s a single parent and worried about her kids health. She took me over to another hospital where I was better treated and diagnosed with Crohn’s disease. As the years passed, I noticed that I would have flare ups in the fall/winter but would have remission during the spring/summer semesters. They were rollercoaster flare ups by the time I was 21 I had finally been in remission for 4 years until I hit 25 and unexpectedly became hospitalized. That’s when I first learned of remicade which was a new treatment for me at that time and it did wonders for me! By the time I hit 29 I had a bad flare up that just permanently scarred my colon. I toughed it out for 2 more years until I just couldn’t handle the exhaustion and tendencies of wanting to pass out. By the time I was 31, the option of having my colon removed came up. The doctors notice I had polyps and the original plan was to have 3/4 of my colon removed then after I healed remove the polyps and then talk about reattachment. After about 6 months of having my ileostomy, I went to see the doctor about removing the polyps. It turns out that they were pseudo polyps and it was my illness trying to flare up only there wasn’t anything it could do. (This story will continue in the comments)👇🏼

Again I can’t reiterate this anymore! There are those out there that just don’t understand what we go through as we struggle with a chronic/invisible illness. This is the one “superpower” I wished ignorant people would have. Not only do we have an invisible illness but it’s incurable for a reason! Stop telling us bullshit that we know ain’t gonna work especially if the meds we’re already taking that’s suppose to treat the illness are fucking us up more as it is!! #deadpool #crohnsdisease #crohnscolitis #crohns #ileostomy #ostomy #ostomate #ostomates #colitis #ulcerativecolitis #ibd #ibdsucks #ibdwarrior #crohnswarrior #irritablebowelsyndrome #inflammatoryboweldisease #ulcerativecolitiswarrior #ucwarrior #chronicillness #invisibleillness  #superstoma #stomalife #ostomyawareness

For a lot of people meal planning is something they do to get fitter or healthier. They can pretty much use a free take+make plan and tweak it to their needs. If it doesn’t happen, they can manage to head to a restaurant pretty easily. They might be a bit set back in their results, but it’s not anything threatening. But for those of us with an unruly gut, there is no other option. Because even though it make take us a long time to search for those “gluten free, vegan, Low Fodmap, Low Carb, please god no garlic or onions” recipes, as soon as we eat out for a dinner that we weren’t prepared for, it can set us back for days. Not in our results but in our LIFE. If you want a quick sample of what Low Fodmap looks like in a day, check out the free Eat To Live guide. Link in bio. I give you a sample meal plan in there. What are your other fave resources for IBS-friendly meal plans? .

Hurricane Ophelia is about to hit our wee island, news reports are saying it might be bad enough, but then our part of the world is not use to this, so in comparison to other hurricanes and storms this could just be a passing blip! Time will tell...
.
Schools are closed for the day, we’ve put the Halloween decorations up and we are staying inside, warm and cosy, to watch the storm pass. Tonight I am supposed to be going to an IBD event with a medical expert talking about the condition and how it is treated in Northern Ireland, should be interesting!

I read a good quote: ‘when the storm rips you to pieces, you get to decide how to put yourself back together again’ (Bryant McGill). I’m learning and discovering, a work in progress! 💜☔️🌈

Dinner time, med time! Rheumatologist rearranged some meds, so no more 18 pills at night! Food keeps me from getting too nauseous, so a #brownrice #tortilla with #zucchini #hummus and #chicken with #greentea will help....hopefully!

After a stunning holiday with weak internet and phone signal it's back to reality. 
This week is going to be intense. So much to do and then to move to our new house next week. 🙌
I will need to find a way to tackle this week one step at a time and hold onto the calm I feel right now.

So easy to take days like today for granted. A family trip out to celebrate my son's 2nd birthday. No desperate scramble to find the closest toilets. No pain. No fatigue. No fear.

THAT is what my stoma has given me.

Don't fear surgery. Don't fear the bag. Embrace it. Own it. And live life again.

Always looking for ways to heal my gut and it is well documented that probiotics are healing...
Water kefir is my latest experiment... and it is already growing faster than I can drink this stuff.
Check them bubbles 😍

12 day progress! ☺️ I'm eating at a SURPLUS (a little over 2,000 calories per day). I'm in a build phase eating to gain muscle, but the additional muscle & food is revving my metabolism and I'm burning fat. 🏋🏻‍♀️🔥 The scale hasn't changed much but my body composition has.
.
I will say that my calories are all clean. I see a lot of IG fit girls eating processed stuff with chemicals & artificial ingredients in it because it fits their macros, but I believe in health first & foremost so I eat real, whole, all natural foods. That goes for my supplements too. 👌🏼
.
I'm so intrigued by this process and I can't wait to see where I'm at on day 84!! 😁 If you want to join me, send me an email! If I can do this in 12 days, imagine where you can be by Thanksgiving. 🤔 I think this is the perfect program to do through the holidays, since you get to eat so much food! 🍽 dawnhermanfitness@gmail.com

So today, after a few months of going out with someone, I finally told them about my IBD ...after a morning of wondering if my gut will behave, and if it doesn’t, will I have time to get home before it happens 💩 ...not exactly the thoughts I wanted to have while spending a night with the person I like 👫 
How do you handle new relationship? How long until you open up about your condition? .

Mmmmmm pizza night... every now and then I decide to eat something a little bit naughty with the hb and kids. Still healthy...not very IBD friendly 😂 Balance.
Rice paper wrap as the base and lactose free cheese.
Pretty excited!

New tattoo... 🎨💉
•••
Got this in 2 stages, just coloured yesterday so still sore & fresh. Tattoos are something I've been collecting since having UC. I love bright, colourful, happy tatts - often to contrast the dark that UC would make me feel. It's also pain on my terms, something I could control, unlike UC.
•••
This tattoo is my little (well, big!) "goodbye colon" piece. Full of flowers, crystals and a couple of Mome Raths from Alice in Wonderland. My pain threshold is very high - this took about 2ish hours to colour in, and it felt fine, only a little bitey.
•••
Big thank you to @sarahktattoo for being a superstar and creating this art on my arm 🙌❤️

CLC MEMBER FEATURE: Hi there, I'm MJ. I'm 34 and live in Sydney, Australia. I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis when I was 17. The first few years were manageable but as time went by, my symptoms got worse and I also developed IBS and Anemia. Western medicine never worked that well for me. I slowly failed everything I tried, including prednisone, Remicade (triggered drug induced lupus) and Entyvio (liver damage).
•
I experimented with diet: SCD didn't work, but a modified low FODMAPs, no red meat, low fiber, and minimal processed foods seemed to help.
•
I also tried alternative therapies. Acupuncture, massage and chinese herbs had the best results - despite my doctors not thinking so! I'm a big believer of positive thinking, metaphysical and energetic healing too.
•
UC was a relentless daily struggle, especially the anxiety, stress and fatigue. The worst was urgency, constant diarrhea and pain. Despite being in a flare for the last 7 years, I still travelled the world: Asia, South America, Europe, Australia. I was determined not to let it rule my life.
•
I decided to end my UC journey and get a total colectomy and an ileostomy when a couple of scopes showed dysplasia (pre-cancerous cells). By this stage I was also out of medications to try, so it was surgery time.
•
Since getting an ileostomy I feel like I am living life 2.0 - my UC was severe ulcerative pan-colitis (affecting whole colon) - now that the toxic organ has been removed my quality of life has improved. I can eat a normal diet, leave the house without fear of finding the nearest public bathroom and even my IBS has settled. So much stress and anxiety has gone and I am so grateful.
•
My journey has been made easier by the wonderful IG community of like minded-souls. It's so great to have such a wonderful support network here to share experience and advice. It helped me realize having a bag was not a failure or a bad thing, it was going to give me my life back!
•
Stay strong you chronic illness warriors out there. 💪 Be kind to yourself, think positive and don't let anything hold you back from living the life you deserve 💜🙌 #chronicloveclub

By this stage I was also out of medications to try, so it was surgery time. • Since getting an ileostomy I feel like I am living life 2.0 - my UC was severe ulcerative pan-colitis (affecting whole colon) - now that the toxic organ has been removed my quality of life has improved. I can eat a normal diet, leave the house without fear of finding the nearest public bathroom and even my IBS has settled. So much stress and anxiety has gone and I am so grateful. • My journey has been made easier by the wonderful IG community of like minded-souls. It's so great to have such a wonderful support network here to share experience and advice. It helped me realize having a bag was not a failure or a bad thing, it was going to give me my life back! • Stay strong you chronic illness warriors out there. 💪 Be kind to yourself, think positive and don't let anything hold you back from living the life you deserve 💜🙌 #chronicloveclub 
I just made an easy body scrub for my morning daily shower. An easy recipe of two cups sugar to half of cup coconut oil. I added citrus bliss and peppermint  doterra essential oils to help wake me up of a morning.  Let your shower be the ultimate diffuser after scrubbing your body down gently with this concoction. Turn the warm water on an inhale the essential oils too as you rinse it off. Doing this daily will greatly improve your body's ability to heal chronic allergies by sweating and detoxing unwanted waste and chemicals, sloughing layers of dead skin, reducing your sympathetic dominance, and strengthening your immune power. Plus getting the added benefits aromatically by helping me clear my breathing with the peppermint and elevate my mood with the citrus bliss!! Too simple and cost effective. 🍊 🍃 #doterra #lowtoxliving #allergymama #essentiallywell-littleoilygems #back2basics #peppermintoil #citrusbliss #ibdwarrior #excema #autoimmunedisease

There are times where I just can’t hold back my sarcastic and facetious nature when I meet people that think they know more than my doctor. I try take into account they mean well but half the time, they don’t know what the hell they’re talking about. And don’t get me started on the ones that tell me I don’t look sick or that I’m not tired blah, blah, yadda, yadda! U grow tired of hearing it at times. #deadpool #crohnsdisease #crohnscolitis #crohns #ileostomy #ostomy #ostomate #ostomates #colitis #ulcerativecolitis #ibd #ibdsucks #ibdwarrior #crohnswarrior #irritablebowelsyndrome #inflammatoryboweldisease #ulcerativecolitiswarrior #ucwarrior #chronicillness #invisibleillness  #superstoma #stomalife #ostomyawareness

#tbt to the day before my Stoma when I was probably the most nervous I have ever been. I had no idea how much it would change my life or how I’d adapt. Writing a blog has helped me express some feelings about it but also use my experience to help others. Please follow my new twitter account for my blog and all things IBD! @semicolon563 ❤️💩
