Colitis, you are one nasty, unpredictable beast but you will not stop me from adhering to rule #1 - NEVER MISS A MONDAY!! I had a rough afternoon dealing with IBD symptoms. This would have been one of those days where I could have used lack of energy (and some other symptoms that would be better left unsaid), as an excuse not to push play but I’m a coach, I’ve made a commitment, and I have a group to report to. Jeanne, Iron Maiden and Sagi, helped get me started, after that IT WAS ON!
Beast Up - C/S/T crushed. Chest quivering. On to tomorrow.
I’ve been super swamped with life lately so here’s a picture of a much less stressed, happier me doing what I love to do! I’m currently preparing for a really big work tradeshow event in Las Vegas and the stress of that along with normal life, yoga teacher training, and overall disease management is starting to wear on me. I’m trying SUPER hard to find balance and really hope my healing isn’t reversed after all of this! I know I can do it I just need to remind myself to slow down. And daydream of catching big fish on warm sunny days....*sigh* 🎣☀️
Finde libre!!! Desconexión!!!! Ha sido una semana dura, quizá no demasiado física pero si mentalmente o esa ha sido mi sensación. Miércoles y jueves decidí descansar solo con yoga y hoy ha tocado entrenar pero de otra forma:
- Calentamiento remo 10 min.
- 5 x10 rep. Sentadillas sumo (10kg).
- 5 x press banca 8-10 rep. pecho (3,75 + 3,75kg).
- 5x 10- 12 rep. sentadilla libanesa .
- 5 x 12 rep. Jalon espalda abierto (25 kg).
- 5 x 10 rep. Elevación de pelvis (5kg)
- 5 x 8- 10 rep. hombro frontal con giro de muñeca (6kg).
- 5 x 12-15 rep. abdomen con elevación de piernas.
En el momento que he escuchado sentadilla y la segunda palabra ha sido libanesa, me han dado ganas de salir corriendo, pero como no puedo correr... 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 Total , me duele todo, las sentadillas son mis enemigas.😋😋😋Hasta el jueves que viene por lo menos mis entrenamientos van a ser así, cero impacto , CERO. Regalo pie izquierdo!!! Quien lo quiere?
This is a repost from last year, today from my personal page! It’s amazing to have these posts to look back on and see the transformation. The work it took to get here. And most importantly, that I made it! In all honesty sometimes I didn’t think I would. #oneyearlater
I am very good at hiding my pain, my emotions and my feelings. Im trying to change this for my health. I'm going through some heavy life shit lately. I never reach out but for some reason it feels right. So here I am.
I am the queen of shutting down, the absolute best at negative self talk, pushing away how I feel so I don't burden anyone else or so I don't have to deal!
I've read that we stay in the pain until we learn from it. Well, this rock bottom experience has taught me so much but for some reason it's not letting me up outta the murky water to catch a breath. It's holding me down for far too long.
I'm being kind to myself, self care, thinking positive. Allowing myself to cry when I need to. Today was a confine myself to the house day!
I've been told that staying with the pain instead of shutting down is the way out. It's the way to let go, move on and transform.
I'm coping with this pain by indulging in too much decaf coffee and chocolate. But that's what I need today.
Maybe this post will allow the surrendering, forgiveness or answers into my world. Something. Anything. Whatever it's suppose to be I'm open to it and ready for the transition to be complete already!!! Or maybe to allow someone else to feel their feelings too and surrender to what is, let go of what was and have faith in what will be.
I'm not really sure what I'm doing because I'm stumbling through just like everyone else. I'm reading Byron Katie's book "Loving What Is" hoping it will help me out of this.
Surrender and faith in my case doesn't relate to religion. Its to release negative energy...to the air, to the wind, to take it away. It's to the universe. It's.....TO THE WINDOW...TO THE WALL....TO THE WALL...😂 Gotta have humour even when I'm an emotional mess!!
This little dude is just about done with his meds and is gettimg better every day. Every time I think we crested the hill, though, he gets a minor upset tummy set back 😧 Want my baby to be well again.
So thankful for my forever valentine and the support he gives me in all of my health struggles and life adventures. I’m not sure what I’d do without him. ❤️ I’m mean, seriously, who else would appreciate my poop jokes!! 💩😂
