So many of us look down and at the past and just dwell there. But that is not what is going to lead us into a successful future.

Look up, look forward, Dream and do. Have a beautiful and blessed day. ....

Despite it being marginally warmer today than it has been in a while, I cannot get warm! Hopefully this yummy looking chunky veg soup from @dietchefuk should hit the spot and warm me up a bit! ...

Me pongo sería. Todo lo que me ha tocado pasar desde agosto con el pie, la colitis y sus derivados  me ha generado mucha ansiedad. Comer cosas que no me sientan bien no ayuda nada. Asi que como no me encuentro nada bien,toca depuración. Lo principal para que un plan nutricional no fracase es la planificación de lo que vas a comer desde que te despiertas hasta que te acuestas. El plazo de 21 días es para generar el hábito, no vayáis a pensar que después de 21 días se acaban los deberes. #positivemind  #nevergiveup  #colitisawareness #colitissucks #ulcerativecolitisfighter #ulcerativecolitissucks #colitisulcerosa #chronsandcolitis #autoinmunedisease #autoinmunewarrior #cu #paleo #paleolife #comidareal #realfood #eatrealfood #eatingclean #vidasana  #mentesanacuerposano #yotengounaenfermedadintestinal

Sunshine in a dropper ☀️
A couple of weeks ago my new GI ordered blood work to check some of my vitamin levels. I have battled with a lot of fatigue (outside of the normal during recovery), lightheadedness, dizziness, muscle pain, and more for awhile and now that I am on the mend, it was time to begin really trying to fix any low levels.
My results came back showing that I was very low on vitamin D and anemic. I have struggled with both of these levels since my diagnosis despite taking supplements to improve them. So its back on 50,000 units of vitamin D a week and iron pills daily.

According to the journal, Nutrition Research, 42% of adults are deficient in vitamin D. Most people get plenty of vitamin D from the sun, however, if you have an underlying medical condition (hello, chronic illnesses!) you have a higher risk of being deficient. If you think you may be deficient, talk to your doctor! Many times you will not even recognize the symptoms.

Rise and shine fellow IBDer's! I started off my morning by having an abdominal ultrasound 👍Two nights ago I started leaking some suspicious looking fluid from my belly button, and have had increased pain to the area. But let me back up a bit: in mid-October I had my 4th surgery (a laparoscopic abdominal exploration and stomal revision), and ever since I have been experiencing ongoing pain in my abdomen and I generally feel unwell 🤒 I know my body, and I KNOW something isn't right. My nursing gut (ha!) instinct says it's an abcess. And if it is, it will be my third one I've developed post-op 👎 The ultrasound was very painful around my umbilical and stomal area, even with light pressure. Hoping my specialist will have the results Monday!

Only a few more days until I run the @msbluesmarathon. Got my treatment yesterday morning. Felt completely exhausted afterwards. Hit the gym up for an hour today but stopped when I became nauseous. Hopefully I’ll feel more normal(whatever that is) tomorrow. Was hoping that my body absorbed the chemo juice over the night last night but it looks like it’s still doing whatever it is that it does for a short while after the infusion. #alphamale #usmcvet #alkebulan #fitness #health #vibramfivefingers #runnersofinstagram #fitdad #applewatch #underarmour #gymselfie #aesthetics  #ulcerativecolitis #chemotherapy #menshealthmagazine #ulcerativecolitisfighter #ebonyfitness #blackfitness #remicade #handsome #countryboy #mississippi #ocrtraining #spartanracetraining #marathontraining #weightlifting #applewatchfitness  #runnerscommunity #strongasoak

Apparently my intestines just couldn't wait until my GI appointment this coming week & decided to really act out today... Bonus: the ER during flu season is not a fun place to be. 😷🏥🙅🏻 #ulcerativecolitis #ibdsucks

Is it Pizza? So last night, my family wanted pizza... and I though... I can do that!
I made this delicious little gluten free toasted pizza, hold the cheese with lots of veggies and it was delicious and super easy and quick.

I felt like I was eating pizza with the family and  I was totally on point with my nutrition. It also didn’t bother with my stomach or my UC. 😃😃 ...

All you need is 20 seconds of insane courage.
For Christmas, my parents got me a gift card to a local gym to use when I felt ready. Unfortunately, right after Christmas I was hit with a GI bug that cost me a week of feeling less-than-wonderful and over 5 pounds. Since then, I have been working to regain the progress that I had made.
This morning I woke up and knew that today was the day I wanted to try going to the gym. So I pulled on my tennis shoes, tied my hair into a ponytail, and headed out. When I arrived, I sat in the parking lot, clutching my gift card. Suddenly I was scared. Suddenly a wash of what-ifs flooded my mind. “Maybe I’m not ready yet,” I thought to myself. I started to reach for my seatbelt to leave.
“To Kristen, from Mama and Daddy,” I read several times from the front of the gift card. My parents believed in me- so why did I not believe in myself?
•••
In that moment, I unfastened my seatbelt, grabbed my water bottle, and made my way to the gym. Today I stepped out of my comfort zone: WAY outside of my comfort zone. I was scared. I doubted myself. I almost let fear win. But then it hit me: less than a year and a half ago I was laying in a hospital bed, dying. My parents were being told I wasn’t going to make it. But today, I was going to the gym stronger, healthier, and very much so ALIVE. I survived when every single odd was stacked against me, so why would I choose to let anything hold me back now? Today I felt the fear, but I did it anyway. It only took 20 seconds of courage. Thank you so much to @levi.stone_13 for the Warr;or bracelet 💪🏻

There are not many things better than a perfectly ripe avocado. Not to mention soft scrambled eggs with a bit of cheddar, chives, and franks red hot. 🤤 .

Complete silence and a warm bubble bath 2 days in a row now 😳 It’s a record! I’ve never ever been a bath girl....BUT the joint pain associated with #ulcerativecolitis and the cold weather (yes, it’s freezing lately here in the ☀️shine state) has me feeling like I’m 92 😖 I’ve decided tho, pain or no pain, I could get used to this 😋 #imaginingimintheocean #ulcerativecolitisawareness #ulcerativecolitisfighter #ibd #invisibleillness #autoimmunedisease #selfcare #blessed #gratitude 🙏🏽

So tomorrow I get my treatment; thank God. The past few days, I really haven’t had much energy and my stomach isn’t being nice to me. St I had to do something even if it was just a little bit. A good hour of strength training and I was completely exhausted. I’m surprised that I did 17 pull-ups. The negative stuff in life(stress, depression, sickness) is no longer going to be an excuse for me not to train. My mind is going to keep pushing my body past my perceived limits. #alphamale #usmcvet #alkebulan #fitness #health #vibramfivefingers #runnersofinstagram #fitdad #applewatch #underarmour #gymselfie #aesthetics  #ulcerativecolitis #menshealthmagazine #ulcerativecolitisfighter #ebonyfitness #blackfitness #weightlossjourney #handsome #countryboy #mississippi #ocrtraining #spartanracetraining #marathontraining #weightlifting #applewatchfitness  #runnerscommunity #strongasoak
So tomorrow I get my treatment; thank God. The past few days, I really haven’t had much energy and my stomach isn’t being nice to me. St I had to do something even if it was just a little bit. A good hour of strength training and I was completely exhausted. I’m surprised that I did 17 pull-ups. The negative stuff in life(stress, depression, sickness) is no longer going to be an excuse for me not to train. My mind is going to keep pushing my body past my perceived limits. #alphamale  #usmcvet  #alkebulan  #fitness  #health  #vibramfivefingers  #runnersofinstagram  #fitdad  #applewatch  #underarmour  #gymselfie  #aesthetics  #ulcerativecolitis  #menshealthmagazine  #ulcerativecolitisfighter  #ebonyfitness  #blackfitness  #weightlossjourney  #handsome  #countryboy  #mississippi  #ocrtraining  #spartanracetraining  #marathontraining  #weightlifting  #applewatchfitness  #runnerscommunity  #strongasoak

November 2017 ➡️ Now.
This is why I get up every day and work to nourish and strengthen my body. This is why I fight through the pain and the sadness and the frustration. This is why I cry until there are no tears left and then dry my face and keep going. This is why I wake up every single day with an open heart and mind to the “impossible.” This is why, no matter how many times life knocks me down, I will always get back up.
THIS is why I have an unrelenting belief that everything will be ok. That I will be ok. That every single person waking up and fighting battles every single day, most invisible to the eye, will be ok.

“Never give up on the things that make you smile.” 😁 | I’ve got travels and holiday’s on my mind, which is a little distracting, but it makes me smile 🙈 I cannot wait to feel the sun burning on my skin, feel the sand underneath my feet, breath in the ocean air and catch some good waves 😍 but I will have to be patient. I’ve already been looking around for this summer’s holiday and it got me all excited. If I could, I would go in an instant. For now I will just dream a little about it ☀️🏝🌊🏄🏼‍♀️ Have you read my blog yet?

Letting my hair go au naturale!
I get a lot of questions about what I have been using to grow my hair and all I use is the @renpure Biotin and Collagen Shampoo and Conditioner. They make my hair feel thicker, softer, and look so much healthier! My hair has taken almost a year to grow this long after losing 90-95% of it and I still have many different lengths while it grows back, but I am thankful every day for the progress it has made. Seeing your body grow stronger and healthier is such an incredible thing to experience. Thanks, @renpure!! #renpure

*GI APPOINTMENT UPDATE!* I saw my gastro doc Dr. Atkinson this morning, and needless to say I'm in great hands 🤗 He thinks I may be experiencing a flare up, and there is a possibility I may have Chron's features along with my colitis. He wants to do a full scope of my gi system (including my already formed J-pouch) to see what is going on, and there is a very real possibility I will be started on Remicade to control the inflammation so my fistula can heal. I had my chest xray today, and my scope is booked for next Tuesday 👍I'm definitely worried, but I also feel very relieved and thankful I have Dr. A on my team!

When I came home from the hospital last August after my first surgery, I could barely walk unassisted. I could not even lift my own foot. My parents carried me up the stairs because I could not raise my legs to climb even one stair. I used a cane to walk back and forth to the restroom and could not wear shoes because they were too heavy for my feet. I am 5 foot 6 inches and I weighed only 72 pounds at that time.
•••
Since that time, I have worked tirelessly to gain my strength back, with so many setbacks in between. Every time I would gain a little strength, I was hit with another setback, causing me to lose more weight and muscle. Today I celebrate another milestone in my recovery- biking. I have been unable to bike since my last surgery due to discomfort and pain, but today I rode for several minutes. My battle with Inflammatory Bowel Disease is far from over, but no matter how long it takes and how hard it may be, I will always get back up and start over again.

One of my fav fish recipes 🙌🏻
I don’t know about you, but I am ALWAYS feeling short on time. So when it comes to cooking, I need something to be simple, fast, and safe for me to eat! 💕

Just cook both sides for 5-7 minutes on medium heat. I personally love to pair cod with sweet potatoes, broccoli or butternut squash. Super easy and yummy! 
What are some of your favorite fish recipes? 😊

✨PRODUCT LINK IN BIO.✨ Supplement Sunday! Aloe Vera isn’t just for sunburns ☀️
This is one of my FAVORITE supplements. I’ve taken Aloe Vera supplements for three years now. Aloe Vera is known for helping fight off inflammation in the body! 👊🏻 I take three a day, but you can take up to six. Aloe Vera has played a big part in my healing process. I definitely notice when I don’t take it. Also, this stuff is amazing when I have a cold. I’ll take six a day instead of three, and It helps me get over my cold much faster. Love love love this stuff!

For the most part I love my ileostomy. She saved my life but we have our moments. Right now she’s being a proper little bitch and will not fucking stop pouring. Other half has banished me to bed, I’m all dosed up on loperamide, got my sports lucozade and kind of wanting to just curl into a ball. Dehydration is a serious thing, even more so with a stoma. We can go downhill pretty rapidly so resting up and hope the bitch cheers up soon cos after over 24 hours of this, I’m pissed off and feel like shit. No pun intended.

Rehydrating after a long walk outside with my sister today!
I have been using @drinkdripdrop for almost two years since my diagnosis and it is so great for battling dehydration and giving me the salt and electrolytes I need. Those of us without colons will always require a little (or a lot) more hydration and salt to keep us going!
•••
Today makes 3 1/2 months post-op and it was exciting to be able to get outside and walk. It was a gentle reminder that I am making progress, even if some days it does not feel that way.
Little by little, a little becomes a lot.

When Lego, wine and fakeaway win over the gym. More yogalates in the morning and gym Sunday. Gonna enjoy the downtime with my family. Fakeaway is noodles and diet chefs chicken in black bean sauce. Wasn’t my favourite of theirs but still tasty!!

Good morning! I made homemade dairy free yogurt bark! I made the yogurt in the instant pot and was genuinely shocked at how much it tastes like tangy plain greek yogurt. To make the bark I just placed some parchment paper into a small rectangular container, poured the yogurt in and added some blueberries and honey. (You can use whatever toppings you’d like.) Stick it in the freezer for at least 4 hours (or overnight like I did) and ta da! .

Stick it in the freezer for at least 4 hours (or overnight like I did) and ta da! . . . . #glutenonthefritz  #glutenfree  #grainfree  #soyfree  #dairyfree  #gumfree  #binderfree  #nutfree  #scd  #scddiet  #scdlegal  #specificcarbohydratediet  #paleo  #autoimmunepaleo  #ulcerativecolitis  #ulcerativecolitisfighter  #ulcerativecolitisfriendly  #yogurtbark  #dairyfreeyogurt  #paleoyogurtbark  #mncooking  #snacktime

I’m not sure how but I have to keep pushing. My body is starting to go into a flare up because of the autoimmune disease(Ulcerative Colitis). Remicade day is next Friday so hopefully I can hold it together until I get to the chemotherapy clinic. I have to keep my body in motion because the marathon is almost here. I really want to have a big improvement over last time. Also it’s not 100% confirmed yet but I might be doing a Spartan Endurance Hurricane Heat 12 Hour this upcoming March near Las Vegas; I’d really like to be mentally and physically sound for that event too. And last but not least I’m working on possibly doing the Spartan Race Ultra Beast either in Killington, Vermont or Hawaii this upcoming August. Naturally I’m leaning more towards going to Hawaii. #alphamale #usmcvet #msbluesmarathon #alkebulan #fitness #health #vibramfivefingers #runnersofinstagram #fitdad #applewatch #underarmour #gymselfie #aesthetics  #ulcerativecolitis #menshealthmagazine #ulcerativecolitisfighter #ebonyfitness #blackfitness #weightlossjourney #handsome #countryboy #mississippi #ocrtraining #spartanracetraining #marathontraining #weightlifting #spartanendurance #applewatchfitness  #runnerscommunity #strongasoak

I think my time of remission comes to its end😭 But never lose hope so I have to eat more healthy and I hope. Everything will be fine with this broccoli kiwi smoothie and bread!!!! #colitisulcerosa #colitis #ulcerativecolitis #ulcerativecolitisfighter #uc #crohn #morbuscrohn #crohnsfighter #chronic #remission #healthy #selflove #healthymind #cleaneating #health #afterworkout #staystrong
Despite my gym card fail, just done an hour of #yogalates felt bloody great. Need to do the guided relaxation but may save that for bedtime and not when my bonus son is about to walk in!

Who knew collagen could help your gut health? 🤷🏻‍♀️ I didn’t until my doctor told me to add it to my daily supplements! @vitalproteins is my favorite thing to add to my morning coffee. ☕️ It’s great for your belly, plus it’s amazing for your hair, skin and nails! Sounds like a win win to me. 🙌🏻
