It may be Friday but like many others i am off to work for the weekend. 37 hours of shifts between me and my week of leave so I'm fueling up on oats and PB and I've got my BSLM bag packed with my meal prep. And a trust cuppa to go! What's everyone else doing this weekend? โ€ข

Behind her smiles and giggles Ry has been fighting what seems like a flare since her last remicade infusion. It started with a sniffle and spiraled out of control from there. She saw her pediatrician yesterday who confirmed her blood count is low. She also weighs 5 pounds less than she did when she first got sick 18 months ago. So shes not gaining any weight, which of course is not too great when you're only 5. But i really need some help understanding something ive not seen brought up too often among the fighters i follow... C Diff. Ry has had it a few times. i forget it manifests in the same way a flare up does. For those of you who have had it, can you feel the difference between the two? Does it make you feel any particular way? Are there things as Ry's mom i should be more sensitive toward while she is dealing with a a flare or c diff? #ulcerativecolitis #inflamatoryboweldisease #ibd #autoimmunedisease #invisibleillness #flareup #cdiff #fightlikeagirl

Finally was able to live that gluten free beignet life that I've been admiring for so long via Instagram posts. You can find these beauties at Disney's Port Orleans French Quarters in their main cafeteria. Go to the bakery section and ask for GF beignets and they will send out the chef! I told the chef no pressure but I came from California for these ๐Ÿ˜‰ they were absolutely amaaaaaaaazing ๐Ÿคค๐Ÿคค๐Ÿคค

A Colitis #prednisone #journey from left to right - 1. Early May, a few days on pred. 2. Early July, pred done. 3. Late July, 2 weeks pred free. 4. October. I still have a little ways to go before my face and weight are back to normal. #steroids are so tough. They take forever to leave your system and moon face is an emotional + physical roller coaster... hopefully I never have to take it again! #UC #ulcerativecolitis #colitis #autoimmunedisease #ibd #fuckprednisone #weneedacure #cureibd

Yesterday sucked. It was one of those days where UC was taking over, had an appointment with a new GI doctor that didn't go as I hoped, and was all around crummy.  But today was beautiful, we took a little walk around a local lake and enjoyed the outdoors. It was what my soul needed.๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿƒ #uc #ulcerativecolitis #ulcerativecolitislife #ibd #ibs #autoimmunedisease #inflammatoryboweldisease #chronicillness #falldays

Everything is Connected Everything is Divine
Modern research has confirmed Hippocrates's belief that all of these diseases begin in the gut and can be cured by healing the gut. WITHOUT USING DRUGS.
-
Drugs and things like Roundup (glysophate-it's everywhere, especially in grains) all change your gut flora and the mucous layer of your gut. This compromises the barrier wall of your intestines on a daily basis, allowing lectins in...this prompts your immune system to unleash an attack on you (molecular mimicry is caused by our immune cells attacking proteins on cells or organs that resemble patterns on lectins and LPSs).
-
Eventually the damage to your intestinal wall becomes so severe (initially you don't notice this) that you lose the absorptive part of your intestines...Lectins silently savage the absorptive layer of your intestine (aka you can no longer absorb nutrients no matter how healthy you eat!).
-
These problems are not part of a normal aging process.....it's the cumulative effect of LECTIN TOXICITY. Good news though, THIS DAMAGE CAN BE REPAIRED. You just need to have the right bugs in you and give them what they want. As long as the good bugs are in the majority, you should be in good shape, but when the bad guys dominate, problems prevail.

Thirsty Thursday here. About to get ๐Ÿ”ฅlit๐Ÿ”ฅfrom a $2,650 shot. Pop one every other week. Without it, I am nothing. I am 100% dependent on it.

Put autoimmune disease on auto pilot..
Think it canโ€™t be done? Donโ€™t have 100% control on meds?
What if I said you could improve your symptoms and reduce inflammation with diet and exercise?? Believe it. Reduce inflammation and flares. I know, I live it. I do it. It can be done with simple dietary changes that can make a difference. 
Let me help you push the auto pilot button!

You know what? I hate high rep rack pulls. Not a dislike, like I dislike strawberry ice cream, but a hate, like a I hate whoever invented strawberry ice cream. Like yes, it's a new flavor, but it's not good. You know how I know it's not good? Look in anyone's freezer that has Neapolitan Ice Cream, I bet the chocolate and vanilla are already gone and it's just some pinkish red frozen stuff. No, I don't dislike strawberries, I love the fruit, and the shortcake, and of course, the Jelly! BTW, PB&Js are supposed to have strawberry jelly, not grape. You put grape on and you're evil.

Some days are easier than others when you have a chronic illness but no matter how small it might be, there is always something to be grateful for. 
I'm grateful for so many things- big and small.

Big: I'm currently on holiday in Thailand with my gorgeous boyfriend and we had a phenomenal first day. 
Small: Last night was my first full night's sleep in over 4 weeks of being on steroids!! A full 7 hours and my Fitbit tells me it was good quality. I've woken up feeling refreshed, recharged and ready to take on the day!

One medical condition I help manage is Inflammatory Bowel Disease, specifically Crohnโ€™s & Ulcerative Colitis. On 11/4 I will participate in a charity event for the @crohnscolitisfoundation by spinning with fellow docs to help raise money for research to help find a cure. My goal is to raise at least $5,000 for the cause. If you are interested in donating, the website is below. Every little bit counts, even $1! If this is a cause you are personally interested in, please repost and spread the word! @spin4crohnscolitis @crohnscolitisfoundation

My mom made these ribs for my dadโ€™s birthday linner (lunch and dinner, itโ€™s a thing) with garlic, oregano, and salt especially for me. Every one else had the nightshade full ones with bbq sauce. .
I canโ€™t quite do tomatoes yet and not sure if I will be able to fully reintroduce them since for as long as I can remember Iโ€™d get super burpy after eating them. We shall see when I try to reintroduce them! .
A part of whatโ€™s helped me heal is not feeling excluded from gatherings. As we know, every gathering is usually centered around food. that was one of the hardest things when doing the strict elimination phase with the autoimmune protocol (AIP). Iโ€™ve been able to work around it by offering to bring a dish at a house party or if going to a restaurant that I didnโ€™t pick, my go to is just asking for a plainly seasoned cut of meat cooked in only olive oil with steamed veggies. Iโ€™m so lucky that my family happily makes adjustments so that I can eat with them and not feel like Iโ€™m missing out. ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ

#RunFastEatSlow Recovery Quinoa salad ๐Ÿ˜Š ingredients: Quinoa, kale, black beans, red onion, red bell pepper, cilantro, roasted pumpkin seeds with curry/honey/turmeric coating, olive oil, lime juice, strawberries, and walnuts. The last two are my additions to the recipe - I always add more vitamin c when I have iron-rich foods to help with absorption. Plus I just love walnuts in everything. ๐ŸŒŸ This paired with a beet/blueberry/banana/coconut water/almond milk/almond butter smoothie is what's for dinner. As an endurance athlete, my menu is just as (if not more) important than my actual training schedule. I credit #runfasteatslow for helping my recover, refuel, and get enough key nutrients during a fairly rigorous summer of training. I completed two marathons with zero injuries and a lot of my #ulcerativecolitis symptoms are at bay for the time being. I used to not cook much, but there is something really satisfying about making all my food now and knowing exactly what is in everything I eat. PS- I'm still resting and have NOT caved to go to the gym or for a run!!! I will slowly ease into the gym next week and running perhaps in another week or two. No rush, I need to recover emotionally and physically ๐Ÿ˜Š marathons are TOUGH!!

#RunFastEatSlow  Recovery Quinoa salad ๐Ÿ˜Š ingredients: Quinoa, kale, black beans, red onion, red bell pepper, cilantro, roasted pumpkin seeds with curry/honey/turmeric coating, olive oil, lime juice, strawberries, and walnuts. The last two are my additions to the recipe - I always add more vitamin c when I have iron-rich foods to help with absorption. Plus I just love walnuts in everything. ๐ŸŒŸ This paired with a beet/blueberry/banana/coconut water/almond milk/almond butter smoothie is what's for dinner. As an endurance athlete, my menu is just as (if not more) important than my actual training schedule. I credit #runfasteatslow  for helping my recover, refuel, and get enough key nutrients during a fairly rigorous summer of training. I completed two marathons with zero injuries and a lot of my #ulcerativecolitis  symptoms are at bay for the time being. I used to not cook much, but there is something really satisfying about making all my food now and knowing exactly what is in everything I eat. PS- I'm still resting and have NOT caved to go to the gym or for a run!!! I will slowly ease into the gym next week and running perhaps in another week or two. No rush, I need to recover emotionally and physically ๐Ÿ˜Š marathons are TOUGH!!

Well yesterday was to say eventful. #colonoscopy number 2 (all puns intended) is in the books. Thank God that's over and done with for another while. I honestly can't say enough good things about the nurses in the Endoscopy ward in the hospital. #colonoscopyselfie #colonoscopiessavelives #fuckthestigma #ibd #ulcerativecolitis #colitis #crohns #ibdwarrior #inflammatoryboweldisease #selfie #hospitalselfie #hospitalroom #hospitalssuck #selfiequeen #selfienation

Although I've been through a lot, there is always an upside. I've never had to receive a blood transfusion. During each of my surgeries, I've had to sign a consent form, that if needed, I would accept a blood transfusion. Thankfully one was never needed. I've never lost enough blood during a flare up to need one either. After my surgeries and my body has healed and I was weaned off medications, I wanted to start donating blood. I never felt like I was able to due to my health. Today when that needle entered the crook of my arm I thought of all my spoonie friends. All of you fighting chronic illness, who have needed blood transfusions. I feel grateful that I was able to donate to whoever may need it. .

Less than a year ago I weighed 37kg and was in my longest and worst Ulcerative Colitis flare. Daily blood tests revealed I was so malnourished that my body had stopped producing its own haemoglobin, and was eating away at tissue and muscle to survive. Despite this, I remained completely resistant to surgery. Being a perfectionist, I was so stuck in the mindset of needing to have a perfect body that I was compromising my own life. I was under the impression that having an ostomy bag would damage my self-esteem and make me feel out of place among everyone around me. Looking back, I was out of place and had little self-esteem without a bag anyway. I never once imagined I'd feel beautiful with a bag, and that having it might actually grow my confidence. Iโ€™ve realised that being perfect is completely overrated. I'll now never sacrifice anything, particularly my health for what society deems as beautiful. Beauty lies in our flaws, our insecuritiesโ€ฆand everything else that makes us human.

Surgery has happened and I feel a lot better already, although I am on strong pain meds. I'll learn more about it all tomorrow. Still very drowsy. Thank you to everyone's messages today they were great to come back to after the operation.

It's official, I am a Beachbody Coach, one of the founding coaches for Team Fit and Funky UK!
*~*~*
Why? By the start of 2012 I had put on weight due to medication after suffering two flares of my IBD within a year period, emotional eating and a bad diet. It was time to take action! When two ladies I worked with mentioned they were going to try Insanity as one of their friends had seen amazing results, I thought why not! We agreed to start together. I'm not going to lie it wasn't easy but it was great having the extra support of these two friends and knowing that they were doing the workouts kept me motivated as I didn't want to let them down. We all finished Insanity because of the support and accountability we provided each other and the program worked, we all saw results. This is why I want to be a coach, I have seen the results and want to help and support others see their potential and reach their goals.
*~*~*
I still do Beachbody workouts to this day and I love that I can workout from home. There are so many programs to choose from you can't get bored! I am by no means perfect, there are days when I may not have the best diet and my body is not perfect but I'm happier and healthier and keep improving each day for a better me.
*~*~*
I have to thank @daniellenatoni so much for all of her help and guidance in the lead up to this day, I couldn't ask for a better Beachbody mama!
*~*~*
If you are interested in any products or the coaching opportunity drop me a DM for more info.

Stay fit, stay healthy and true to you x.
