Day 4 of #80dayobsession :
Things I Learned Today:
1- if you have time in the middle of the day to workout even if it isn’t part of the schedule at the time, get it done.
2- strength slides are no joke, this video shows the best moves. There were others!
3- I really need to plan out every single meal. When I used the containers before, I just made sure they all got eaten. Now that I need to have specific containers at specific times, I need to plan way more.
4- that’s all I got for today. #happythursdaynight#californiagirlinmaryland#kerrigetsobsessed#yearofme
My skin is getting so much better!! The first photo is my face before I started Accutane, the second is a couple weeks in and the third photo was taken today (don't mind the coldsore haha). I can't express how happy I am with the results.
If you have bad skin like I had, I highly recommend Accutane. Your results may not be as fast as mine, but I promise it's worth it! •
Day 3 of #80dayobsession
Things I learned on day 3:
1- I got in all my containers because I was home today and didn’t forget any, but did it out of order since I worked out midday and still survived.
2- stress is a real hazard when on an eating plan since you want all the things but when you eat all your containers you aren’t actually hungry for more, so trust your hunger
3- slides are no joke and Sam killed it like a boss.
4- cardio isn’t great for my colitis so I modified when I needed to so I can keep going on the program.
Day 2 of #80dayobsession is complete and I am relaxing on the couch.
Things I learned today:
1- it is not possible to have your green and blue container food for meal 2 if you don’t actually bring it to work 🤦🏻♀️
2- I was not hungry today and I forgot those containers so not sure how I am going to add those today.
3- Booty day is no joke
4- even though I am super hungry and it is late when I am done my workout, wait a little to eat (feeling a little nauseous from eating so quickly)
Day 1 of #80dayobsession is complete and I am about to head to bed. Here are a few things I learned today:
1- I need to thoroughly plan out my meals or else I am not going to eat everything I am supposed to. Today I missed a few containers but it is also going to take some time to go back to eating every 3 hours. Tomorrow is back to work so I need to think it all through in the AM
2- Sam does way better push ups than I ever have been able to
3- I can workout for an hour and not get bored, it was nice to ease into it with a midday workout. We will see what happens tomorrow with the evening one.
4- I think that I am way bigger than I really am and when I look at a pic of myself I can see the changes. I need to give myself a break and be happy with my progress.
5- I need to learn how to get good music on Alexa. I tried the Spotify playlist on my computer since I couldn’t figure out how to get it on Alexa for today’s workout and wasn’t the biggest fan.
So excited to see what day 2 is going to bring #californiagirlindc#yearofme#kerrigetsobsessed
I've been feeling really good lately!
Monday is a big day for me. Second semester of college starts back up again and I have my check up with Dr. Struthers. •
I have been eating a lot better (no tomatoes and iced coffee😉) but I have been enjoying some sweet treats. Time for me to clean up my eating habits... although that's a lot easier said than done. Wish me luck! •
I wondered if you could advertise our Petition with Parliament and Facebook Page, about Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD). The Petition Title Is Below
Consultants or GPs to do PIP, DLA and ESA assessments for people with IBD
To get medical assessments conducted by qualified consultants and GPs who understand patients’ conditions in Crohn’s and Ulcerative Colitis, which can give accurate information about their disabilities to support their claims for PIP, DLA and/or ESA.
Here’s a bit about myself below:
I suffer from Ulcerative Colitis, ADHD, OCD, Anxiety and Depression Disorder and Cluster 4 which means I can't deal with day to day life. I'm on a drug called Infliximab Infusion which is for my IBD and have to have it every 6-8 weeks in hospital in the Infusion Unit. This suppresses my immune system, which means I am prone to infections. I have been rejected twice by PIP saying my IBD and Mental Health Issues don't affect me in my day to day life; I am now waiting for a tribunal.
The Petition Link is below:
Here’s a little tidbit about me: Sometimes, it’s hard for me to take selfies because if you were to meet me in person, you’ll find that I’m really shy. However, once I warm up and get comfortable with you, I’m a very hard person to keep quiet 😁😂 I’m usually talkative, easy going and very mellow and do my best to find humor in everything and make people laugh. So why is it hard for me to take pics of myself? PREDNISONE!!!! When I took prednisone between the ages of 19-23, I developed really bad cystic acne and I was so afraid to go anywhere because I would get ridiculed and made fun of by little kids and teenagers or I would get scolded for not taking better care of myself by adults. That’s probably one of the reasons why I don’t have many pictures of myself in my early 20s and many pictures of when I was experiencing bad flare ups. Yes, camera phones didn’t exactly exist in my days but I was always camera shy. Once the acne ceased, I had so many scars that every time I’d see a pic of me, that’s all I’d ever see were acne scars and not the man that overcame a flare up and it took years for me to overcome that self-consciousness. I didn’t start taking selfies until about 2012 but even then, that was short lived because I started putting on so much weight that I became even more ashamed of myself. This past year, I dropped 35 lbs, a feat I thought would be impossible. I was so proud that I think I went a little overboard taking selfies throughout 2017 😅😂 If there’s one thing that 2017 taught me, it’s that nothing is impossible and to never fear uncertainty in the coming months
I hope to encourage, and to use social media to inspire and impact someone! 💖 Today is injection day. I dread injection day. It’s painful, unpleasant, and my anxiety increases. I have been reading and following different posts. Trying to get as many tips as possible. Today I tried to get a video and it’s not very good. I’ll try to get a better one next time. 😬🤦🏻♀️ I get very angsty and break out in a massive sweat. My hands shake and I’m a nervous wreck. Trying to breathe and be a bad ass but I’m obviously a weenie. One thing that did help was to numb it! So, I put an ice pack on my leg for about 5 minutes. Cleaned the injection site with alcohol, let it dry, then applied my Humira pen. I need help (as seen in the video) because I close my eyes as I do it. Once it leaked on me because it came out of my leg some. I need to learn not to close my eyes but it hurts! I have to hold firm pressure and I’m still figuring this out. Any tips from any other UC Warriors will be greatly appreciated! #ulcerativecolitis#ulcerativecolitiswarrior#ulcerativecolitisfighter#humira#humirainjection#humirapen#keepfighting#wannabebadass
When goals get hard and tough to keep doing, what do you do? Do you stop doing them or push harder and show up to accomplish the goal? .
I used to just quit, I quit everything from soccer when I was 4, to cross country when I was a freshman in high school and anything else that got hard. BUT, now I don’t. I show up for the goal and I show it who is boss. Every since I became a beachbody coach and found my purpose i accomplish everything I put my mind to! .
My determination is about to be tested harder than it has ever been. A WEEK from today, I will be handed the biggest challenge I have faced. A BRAND NEW, never done before 80 day workout program. 80 different workouts for 80 days that progressively get harder each day. .
Are you ready to get OBSESSED with #80dayobsession ??? Are you ready to help keep my accountable for the next 80 days?? Are you ready to have the biggest transformation EVER? Do you want workouts, meal plans, 1:1 coaching, and giveaways? YES!!! GIVEAWAYS! 🍑🍑😍 #countdowncontest
Hey friends! I’m so excited to be starting a daily journal, if you will,about my journey with Ulcerative colitis. I remember being in the middle of my first flare up and not knowing what was wrong with me. I felt so horrible and so alone. So whether you were just diagnosed with UC or if you have been battling it for years, know that you are not alone! We are here to lift each other up and help one another.
There are so many struggles that come with UC. What to eat, how to travel with your disease, supplements, medications, just to name a few. I’ve tried to find instagram accounts and blogs that are helpful and encouraging for those of us with Crohn’s and Colitis, but everything I came across was depressing and scary. That is not me WHATSOEVER. I like to be positive about everything. I am a glass half full kind of girl. 😊
Now, I’m not minimizing the disease. This is a painful, not to mention annoying disease. However, I try and choose joy daily.
On this account, I hope to bring you a daily dose of positive encouragement, share recipes, helpful tips on what to eat and what to stay away from, supplements, and just tips on how to live a healthy life in general. I can’t wait to start sharing with you! 💕
PS. This is my precious hubby. I could not do any of this without him. He has been my rock through it all.
