Jun 1, 2020

THE PILL (part 1) It seems to be a common misconception that the oral contraceptive pill is "regulating" your hormones. The pill simply shuts down your natural hormone production and replaces them with synthetic hormones with simulates a period to appear "natural" This means that it isn't fixing any of the very real reasons of why your cycle was out of whack, or your skin was playing up but rather masks them for the duration you're on it and for all these symptoms (and more) to come back with vengeance when you come off the pill. The pill isn't a solution, it is a bandaid. Regulating hormonal imbalances and supporting women come off pill is something I am very passionate about so if this is something you've been meaning to look into please reach out. I'm here to empower women to understand their bodies.

We hear you loud and clear. Overlooked. Neglected. Disrespected. Dismissed. I’ve been there which is why our fight to find better options for #endometriosis is a top priority. We need participants for our #endo studies. We are conducting 3 which are accepting new patients.

Jun 1, 2020

This afternoon I head into theater for a procedure which fingers crossed, may help minimize some of my pain and symptoms. This will be my 5th time in theater in the last 2 years. That's the thing with #endometriosis, there is no cure. Its about pain and symptom management using a multidisciplinary approach. A surgical approach is only one Avenue What works for one endo sufferer may not work for the next. It really is about trial and error which is what makes this journey so incredibly exhausting and overwhelming. This body has been through hell & back the last 8 years due to endometriosis which has severely effected my bowel, bladder and pelvic floor, just to name a few. Battling with a chronic illness & constant pain every day is a tough gig, but you are not alone in this. I am here with you!

I love this artwork by hazel.mead, so raw and real 💗 menopause is a natural change women go through, however some endometriosis treatments force women into an artificial menopause to try and combat the growth of the endometriosis 💗 • • • #endometriosis #endometriosisawareness #endometriosissurgery #period #likeforlikes #girlproblems #selfcare #selflove #endowarrior #fibromyalgia #pcos #depression #bravery #recovery #pcos #pcosawareness #infertility #infertilityawareness #infertilitysucks #chronicillness #chronicpain #pain #blogger #healthblogger #spoonie #mentalhealthawareness #endoblog #medication #surgery #bravery #corona

Midwife booking app has been booked for 9th June on the day I will be seven weeks! 🥰 I’m relieved this will be face to face at the hospital rather over the phone because of the Coronavirus. I wonder if they will take my blood on that day or at 12 weeks scan?! I think this will feel more real once I’ve had my appointment with the midwife 🥰🌈 #ttcjourney #ttc #ttcaftermiscarriage #pregnant #pregnancyjourney #pregnancytest #rainbowbaby #endometriosis #ttcafterloss #baby #impregnant #happy #excited #nervous #pleasestickbaby #midwifeappointment

Jun 1, 2020

Attention all pelvic pain sufferers! . While you’re over there furiously doing your PF exercises for that clam tight Cooch, make sure you’re also learning how to release & relax your pelvic floor muscles (PFM). You’ll thank me for it later. . . Learning how to relax & release my PFM is a tool I greatly appreciate. When I’m in a pelvic pain lock due to Adeno (& suspected Endo) I feel like my uterus & ovaries are being torn & pulled downward. This causes a ricochet affect & my body follows suit causing my entire back/torso to be held & contracted in a fetal type position, which then keeps my PFM contracted. This causes more pelvic pain & more contraction. It’s a viscous cycle. . . If you’re a sufferer of chronic pelvic pain, you may have a level of Hypertonic PFM or overactivity. PFM overactivity is a condition where there may be increased PFM tension at rest, increased voluntary or involuntary contractile activity, or a decreased ability to fully relax the PFMs. Basically these muscles are constantly tight or switched on. There can be a number of causes for this. . . Overactivity of PFM can contribute to pelvic pain, cause urine & bladder flow issues, painful intercourse, erectile dysfunction (if you’re a man), to name a few. Endo/Adeno pain can also contribute to PFM dysfunction due to the level of pain & swelling involved. The cure is not more Kegels, it’s relaxation. . If this sounds familiar to you, I encourage you to seek the help of a Pelvic Physio for a thorough investigation of your PF & a tailored PF routine that caters specifically to your pelvic issues. . . Hot tip: Once you’re taught how to release your PFM, take your pain meds (whatever that is for you), once they kick in, get comfy & mindfully do your PF releasing exercises. I personally, either vape cannabis or use the oil, once it kicks in, I breathe, do PF releasing & give myself a gentle pelvic massage while doing it. It cuts my pelvic pain by half. Instead of a tearing, searing pain, it reduces it to a vibration/tingling pain. This reduction in pain is enough to allow me to fall asleep. It’s no cure but any reduction in pelvic pain is a blessing. ~ Chrissie xox

Jun 1, 2020

Why is nutrition important and how can seeing a nutritionist be valuable for you? Nutrition is the study of nutrients in food, how the body uses nutrients and the relationship between food, disease and health. The body requires nutrients from food to function optimally. Nutrition is vital, not just with growth and development of humans but also in the prevention and treatment of disease. Nutrition is also fundamental to the maintenance of good health and functionality. With nutrition, supplementation and lifestyle changes we can support a range of health concerns including : - Weight loss and fat reduction -Fatigue, low energy and adrenal dysfunction (HPA axis dysregulation) - Chronic and acute stressed - Digestive dysfunction including irritable bowel syndrome, irritable bowel disease, celiac and non-coeliac gluten sensitivity, food intolerance’s, ulcerative colitis, impaired intestinal permeability (Leaky gut) and overall gut rejuvenation - Overall nutrition evaluation to detect any nutrient deficiencies - Nutrition guidance with vegan, vegetarian diets (These diets exclude food groups which lead to nutrient deficiencies, diet and nutrient evaluation is implemented) -Women’s hormonal health including PCOS, endometriosis, menstruation imbalances - Preconception and fertility health - Skin conditions including acne (teenage acne and women hormonal acne), eczema, dermatitis, rosacea - Auto immune conditions including hypothyroid, hashimoto’s disease and lupus - Allergies - Cardiovascular health, high blood pressure and cholesterol Contact Vanessa Today hello thenourishedco.com.au #nutrition #health #wellbeing #nutritionist #girl #womenshealth #womenshormones #acne #skinhealth #pcos #endometriosis #weightloss #ibs #digestivehealth #fatigue #nutrients

Learning to love myself despite my flaws 💗 Don’t get me wrong I love the sunshine, but I feel very insecure about my body at times. I wish I had a body like vogue models, I wish I was a size 6 again! But, I’m trying to hard to love myself, even the bits I hate. Yes my body isn’t perfect, but it gives me life and that’s enough. So take care of your bodies and give them the care and love they deserve ❤️ • • • #endometriosis #endometriosisawareness #endometriosissurgery #period #likeforlikes #girlproblems #selfcare #selflove #endowarrior #fibromyalgia #pcos #depression #bravery #recovery #pcos #pcosawareness #infertility #infertilityawareness #infertilitysucks #chronicillness #chronicpain #pain #blogger #healthblogger #spoonie #mentalhealthawareness #endoblog #medication #surgery #bravery #corona

Jun 1, 2020

Hello June! Is this also your favourite month? This June, A LOT is going on in the world. I don’t know about all of you, but my anxiety is ramped up which is causing a lot of mental and physical upset. So this month, I’m determined to get into the habit of journalling and writing out my thoughts, fears, success’ and feelings more consistently. This is something I do so sporadically that I know I have never really gotten much benefit from it. However, I came up with these 10 prompts that will hopefully make it a bit easier for me! I will also be incorporating ‘Journal Speak’ into my journalling. This is something that I have learned from thevhive and nicolesachslcsw podcast. If you haven’t checked it out already, it is on Hannah M’s, The V Hive Podcast Episode #49. Feeling inspired to get journalling in June too? Feel free to use these prompts during your journalling sessions this month!

Jun 1, 2020

We all know loneliness. It’s a feeling that we feel, being human. Some people’s relationship with loneliness is brief, and other, a long standing affair.⠀ ⠀ As we all go through our pelvic pain journeys, we are all too familiar with the feelings of loneliness.⠀ ⠀ Loneliness through fear.⠀ Loneliness through feelings of not belonging.⠀ Loneliness through heartbreak.⠀ Loneliness through pain.⠀ Loneliness through not being understood.⠀ Loneliness through self retreat.⠀ Loneliness through anxiety.⠀ Loneliness through depression.⠀ Loneliness through not feeling normal.⠀ Loneliness through your closest not understanding you.⠀ ⠀ It can be a lonely world.⠀ ⠀ But the stars will shine again in your life; and the connection through community, through our pain and suffering we are creating right now, right here, from one beautiful soul to another, all around the world. That community connection is healing our open wounds of loneliness.⠀ ⠀ Can you feel it? I can.⠀ ⠀ The more we touch each other’s heart centre, the more we move each other with messages of love, appreciation and gratitude. The more the loneliness disappears and love starts to grow in is - it expands in our lives, and heals us.⠀ ⠀ Feel it my loves, it’s all around us. It’s all around you.⠀ #theplevicwarrior . . . #pelvicpain #pelvicpainawareness #pelvicpainsupport #pudendalneuralgia #vulvodynia #vagina #endometriosis #endo #anxiety #depression #vaginismus #vaginitis #painfulbladdersyndrome #intersticialcystitis #IC #mindfulness #mindbodyconnection #strength #strongwomen #pelvicfloordysfunction #persistantgenitalarousaldisorder #vestubulodyina #community #healingpelvicpain #love #gratitude #mindfulness #lonlinessquotes #spooniesisters

Quick & Easy Sesame Soy Noodles ✨ . On nights where I have no energy to make food and all I want to do is slump on the couch, I know this is when my body is screaming for nutrients, being chronically fatigued is a major challenge but it also teaches you to know your body inside and out, listening to your bodies needs is vital for recovery, and eating well is non-negotiable, junk food does nothing but fuel the disease, instead we fight it with our gut lovin' herbs and vegetables . The best thing about this dish is that it is ridiculously easy to make and takes about 15 minutes from start to finish depending on how quickly you chop your vegetables! It's mostly raw with the only thing needing to be cooked being the tofu! . Would you like this recipe written up? Type YES ❤️ in the comments section and I'll get my butt into gear . ....but first coffee ☕

These are all true, especially when you are dealing with Endo. What if I told you that you can have better relationships, connection and better communication... wouldn't that make a HUGE difference? OF COURSE IT WOULD! But first you must understand you... and your body.

These vitamins and supplements that My partner and I have been taking pre-conception for a 1st time and it has got me pregnant!! 🥰 beforehand I was taking just pregnacare tablets and my partner took nothing! I have been researching and I believe these vitamins has really helped us! 🌈 Seven seas pre conception (only me took it) 🌈 Wellman conception (partner took it) 🌈 Zita west vital DHA (I took it. This DHA is an omega 3 fatty acid, this is also said to improve egg quality) 🌈 COQ10 Apparently it improve your egg quality so is great for older ladies and also said to increase fertilization rates. You need to take a minimum of 600mg per day. I used to take 3 tablets a day. So 900mg total per day (each tablet is 300mg each) my partner also took it as it also help with sperms quality) 🌈Macca root (we both took it) 🌈pre-seed lubricant 🌈 pixie cup (I believe this help to keep the sperm up there) 🤷🏼‍♀️ works for me! #ttcjourney #ttc #ttcaftermiscarriage #pregnant #pregnancyjourney #pregnancytest #rainbowbaby #endometriosis #ttcafterloss #baby #impregnant #happy #excited #nervous #pleasestickbaby #preseed #zitawest #preconception #preconceptionvitamins #pixiecup #pregnancyvitamins

Jun 1, 2020

Red cabbage contains lots of vitamins minerals and definitely is a super food. You want to keep your hair healthy and have less grey hair coming up? Consume more folate! This nutrient belongs to the family of B vitamins which are responsible for the use, breakdown, and production of new proteins when they are combined with vitamin C and vitamin B 12. It makes red cabbage a great “gray hair fighter “ because it has all this components together. In addition red cabbage contains a lot of sulphur. Sulphur has ability to detox, or purify the blood from toxic or harmful substances. It also enhances liver function to get rid of those harmful toxins. Try to consume red cabbage daily and feel the difference when your body gets detoxified. You will feel better, and your body will feel lighter. You will also have a clearer mind. . And look at this amazing color! Indeed a rainbow on the plate! . #bloodcleansing #juicing #cabbage #businesstrip #healthychoices #alkaline #foodies #nutritionalmedicine #foodasmedicine #antiinflammatory #health #healthyfood #veganfoodporn #culinarymedicine #businesstravel #frequentflyer #holisticfood #anticandida #immunity #endometriosis #celiac #plantbase #detox #yoga #miami #delhi #barcelona #helsinki #london

Jun 1, 2020

✨Your Story✨ . Everyone who enters the clinic has a story. Sometimes reading other people’s stories helps you seek answers to your own health and wellbeing. My beautiful friend and women’s health physio colleague Lauren from physiopodco recently shared her personal story with endogeelong. Have a read below. Maybe her story will resonate with you. #repost endogeelong "Hi, my name's Lauren Earles- I'm 33, a Women's Health Physiotherapist and I have Endometriosis and PCOS. I've had painful and heavy periods most of my adult life. When I first got my period at age 13 and throughout school, my periods were tolerable. It was not until in my 20s that my periods became heavier and more painful, as well as irregular. But like most women, I considered this to be 'normal' as period health was rarely talked about. My Endo symptoms have become more evident in the last 2 years, where I started to get intense 'period pain' when I didn't have my period, severe bloating (looking 6 months pregnant after eating anything or when I haven't eaten), intense period pain, dizziness and vertigo and dyspareunia (painful intercourse). The worst was August 2019 when my period pain was so intense I couldn't walk or talk. I am currently awaiting laparoscopic surgery to determine the official diagnosis of Endometriosis but received the tentative diagnosis via specialist assessment in October 2019. For me, the things that have helped the most with my Endo are the following: Regular acupuncture and herbs by a Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner, Magnesium supplements, a probiotic supplement and Yin-based exercise (eg. Yin Yoga, walking). I am also a Women's Health Physiotherapist and run my own business in central Geelong. I treat women with pelvic pain, including Endo, regularly. Physiotherapy for pelvic pain is proven to be very effective and can involve meditation and relaxation techniques, breathing work, stretching of the pelvic floor and lower leg muscles and internal myofascial release of the pelvic floor muscles.

Do you consider the largest organ in your body? Your skin makes up 16% of your body mass and has a range of functions. . Our skin also absorbs the products we put on it, so it makes sense to avoid chemicals and only buy natural skin care products that are free of chemicals such as parabens, phthalates, triclosan which are well known as being endocrine disruptors. Even small quantities of these chemicals can be unsafe, distrupting your hormones and leading to health problems. Not what you want at all - especially if you have a chronic illness . Consider your skincare, makeup and body products and also your cleaning products. Going to get a facial? Check your therapist only uses natural ingredients. Here in Brisbane I love kindred.toxinfreefacials for a facial and abithippy for my skincare (this is not a sponsored post).

Oh I

Jun 1, 2020

Oh I'm upset.... Not only was one piece destroyed, but this sets me back on the other commissions I'm trying to finish. Luckily, her grandmother who lives across the street agreed to take my daughter for the afternoon so I could recreate the piece. And we now have a new rule in the house: Daughter is not allowed in my art room without prior permission or to bother me while I'm working. Sounds harsh, but sometimes I'm working with materials I can't replace or paper-craft items I've spent hours on that one messed up spot can lead to having to redo everything... Like today. Several hours of work, I'd just sent pictures to the customer this morning and he loved it, I was just finishing up a couple of details. Ok, wish me luck being able to reproduce my work... Thank goodness I take pictures of my work. #kids #art #arttherapy #wth "I don't own any sound rights. I don't make money from my videos.

As I stared at the pictures in pure thought, the story of Joseph was all I could think about. Joseph’s life was hard. When he finally reached Egypt, he was sold into slavery. His life there saw many ups and downs, trials, tragedies and triumphs, but we discover God was with him through it all. . . Genesis 39:21 “The LORD was with him; he showed him kindness and granted him favor in the eyes of the prison warden." . A life of bitterness could have been rightly justified in Joseph’s future, but he chose only trust, he knew God had a plan, he decided to find beauty in all his brokenness. Joseph couldn’t trace God’s hand through the chaos to find some sort of reasoning behind all the misery of life’s unfair turn, Joseph decided to trust His heart. God has a heart of love, He only wants good things for us. When we can’t figure out why life’s chaos is overwhelming, let’s remember to trust God’s heart, that is forever consistent.

PCOS sucks, Endometriosis sucks, Chronic Fatigue sucks, PBC sucks and everything in between just freaking sucks. It’s so hard to not get down when it feels like your body is failing you. Every time you make a plan, things start getting back on track, health goes to shit. Eventually it just takes too much of a toll on your mental health. It’s exhausting watching your goals constantly get further and further away after all the effort you’ve put in. . I fall down, I crumble, time and time again but I get up each and every time and I keep trying because I believe I can get control of my health. It’s just a process that is just going to take time and patience. I HAVE TO GET BACK UP! . . . . . . . #myweightlossjourney #myjourney #endowarrior #endometriosis #pcos #pcosweightloss #pcoslifestyle #hormonalbalance #infertility #mindset #fitness #fitmum #mumlife #bingeeating #mentalhealth #autoimmunedisease #primarybiliarycholangitis #chronicillnesswarrior #chronicfatigue #anxiety #depression #lowcarb #lowcarblifestyle #healthandwellness

Jun 1, 2020

; Mental Health | I've never talked about this and realized over this past weekend that I should because I'm not just all smiles and perfect picture posts. When I battled with #Endometriosis and the debilitating chronic pain, there were times my mind went into dark places on how to permanently end the life of constant pain. I thought how one quick act could end it all but then again, I'd leave behind so many people who I love and couldn't hurt in such a way. Also, suicide is against my religion so how would I answer to God. So I persevered and fought hard and never gave up, all with a smile on my face. Life improved greatly post hysterectomy 3 years ago and I didn't revisit those dark places again. Lately, I've been dealing with so much from continuing to go into work since I'm essential staff when #COVID19 started & I was so fearful, my dad becoming gravely ill and in a coma and tirelessly fighting for his care, other devatasting life events, the recent murder of another innocent black man due to unending police brutality in this country, and poor leadership from our nation's leaders..the same nation I was born in. I've been feeling so restless, helpless, exhausted, defeated, and sad the last few months and it's been hard. Very hard. I can't sleep thru the night kind of hard. I took this past weekend for myself and for my mind. I stayed off my phone for most of the time. Went on a long bike ride along the coast line with my loved ones and sang out loud to my favorite songs and indulged in yummy food. I'm thankful to have people around me who love & value me for ME and I want to thank those who have been there for me in the last few months during one of the most difficult times in my life. I'm not 100% yet but I'm optimistic that I will be soon #THANKYOU #mentalhealthday #selfreflection #selflove #projectsemicolon #♥️

Jun 1, 2020

Hallo #endosisters 💛 Ich melde mich nach langer Zeit wieder einmal. Ich war ja am Mittwoch im Inselspital. Nun ist der Verdacht so, dass die Endoherden die Blase befallen haben(zumindest treffen meine Schmerzen auf das). Ich habe dann wieder mit Absprache von der Ärztin zu Visanne gewechselt und habe einen MRT Termin bekommen, leider erst gegen Ende Juni. Soweit so gut vorgestern habe ich Hüftschmerzen bekommen, dachte es liegt villecht an den Schrauben die noch von meiner Hüftop drinnen sind, aber gestern wieder. Es wurde immer wie schlimmer und plötzlich tat dann auch mein Unterbauch höllisch weh. Auf dem Wc bemerkte ich, dass ich Blutungen bekommen hab. Wir haben Zuhause versucht mit Medis die Schmerzen zustillen half nichts. Ich konnte weder essen, noch auch die Toilette, gar nichts mehr. So entschlossen wir mit dem Inselspital Kontakt aufzunehmen. Gemäss der Ärztin habe ich die Medis genommen wo sie mir gesagt hat, wenn es in ner Stunde nicht besser werden sollte, solle ich kommen. Gut es wurde nicht besser so gingen wir am Abend gegen 22.00 Uhr in die Notaufnahme, dort wieder ne Ultraschalluntersuchung, wieder ohne Befund. Laut der Ärztin sind es Zwischenblutungen, da ich von Visanne zu Minesse und wieder zu Visanne gewechselt hab. Ich wurde dann mit neuen Medis Heim geschickt und es wurde mir aber gesagt ich solle morgen nochmals anrufen und eine Endosprechstunde vereinbaren und falls es mir nicht gut ginge, werden sie mich stationär aufnehmen. Leider habe ich heute wieder Schmerzen, kann trotz den Medis nicht auf die Toilette, kann nicht richtig essen und fühle mich einfach recht Unwohl, das heisst ich werde dann morgen wahrscheinlich stationär aufgenommen. Ich werde euch auf dem Laufenden halten. Passt auf euch auf liebe #endosisters gemeinsam sind wir stark🎗 • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • #endometriosis #endometriose #endo #schweiz #endosisters #endosister #strongertogether #nevergiveup #girlpower #frauenpower #wirschaffendas #staystrong #bleibtglücklich #behappy

And when your actually doing something about it, have 2 medical conditions that make things a million times harder...not just with loosing weight but with the mental torture I put myself through.....I cannot explain it any better..... and yet I cant stop feeling or thinking this way but I also won't stop trying to be healthy or give up but probably live like this for the rest of my days.... xx #slimmingworld #slimmingworlduk #mondaythoughts #neverending #battle #feels #staystrong #pickyourbattles #healthy #fitness #fitfam #pcos #endometriosis #focused xx

Another lockdown first- watching an online screening premiere for the amazing endoshortfilm I've not laughed so much, and cried, at a short film before. The line, "It'll never let you be. Not until it's taken everything" - summed up everything right now. Endo is a bitch that affects so many- #1in10 - but there's so much deafening silence on it. This short film needs to be watched (again) when festival and cinema life returns. Thank you so much endoshortfilm and endometriosis.uk 💛✊💛 #endometriosis #endo #endowarrior #endosisters #endometriosisawareness

My heart is so sick to think about how many people are mistreated just because of the color of their skin. My heart is sick that there is this huge movement where people are trying to make a change, to take a stand, and there are so many people trying to take that platform and turn it into something ugly. My heart is sick that it’s taken so many lives, so many heinous murders, for so many people to even start really taking a notice. My heart is sick over the injustice our country, our world suffers. I wish we could live in peace. I wish everyone could love each other. I wish everyone would spend more time looking around and seeing the beauty this earth has to offer instead of creating more ugly. Stop being the problem. Admit your faults. Educate yourself. Teach your children. Be the change.

Jun 1, 2020

Oh hey there insta 👋! For those who are new here or I have never met in person, I thought it would be fun to do a little intro. . My name is Alissa and I am a mother to two spirited pre-teen girls. I have gone through divorce and am now engaged to the love of my life! I am a full-time Payroll Specialist and a part-time spin instructor pure_vibe_studios and master trainer with trainingwithtashie 🚲. . I love ambient metal, 1940s jazz and folk rock. I do not go a day without coffee and I think about cheese more than an underfed mouse. I love black and white movies, anything Marvel, the Lord of the Rings and most classic literature. I enjoy board games, throwing a football around, lifting weights, singing and I love people. All the people! All the time!!! . I have four chronic diseases/illnesses - #celiac #endometriosis #hereditaryspherocytosis and #gastroesophagealrefluxdisease . I am currently waiting for my 15th surgery and another scope to check out some other unpleasantries that have been happening. (Quick clarification: I am not looking for pity - I give myself enough of that 😬🤣!) . I believe that most of us do not want to walk alone. We want to be heard, to be seen and, ultimately, to be understood. There can be something powerful in hearing someone else's story - of the hardship and struggle, sure, but also of how they warrior through and what they learn in the process. That is my goal in sharing what I do. . So, thanks for being here and I'd love to hear a little about you!!!

We got approved and will start injections tomorrow. And with that, I am once again reminded of how thankful I should be to live in a place where infertility is healthcare and is completely covered, meds and all. Full price would have been £650/$805, but I don’t pay a thing. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #ivf2020 #infertility #1in4 #1in10 #ivfsverige #ivfsupport #1in8 #pcos #ivfjourney #ivfwarrior #endometriosis #infertilitywarrior #notpregnant #ivf #ivfcommunity #ivfaftermiscarriage #ttcaftermiscarriage #cd1 #ivfmeds

Jun 1, 2020

Oh heyyyy 👋 It's ya girl, Dallas! We've added some new faces to this page, so I thought I'd take a hot sec to reintroduce myself and welcome you all to my journey! • So here's me in a nutshell: Born & raised Alaskan 🏔 Married to my best friend 💑 Mama to our sweet girl 👨‍👩‍👧 and expecting our second in July 🤰🏼Nurse 👩🏼‍⚕️ Lover of the outdoors, fishing, and anything involving the ocean 🏞 • I started my health & wellness journey 4 years ago as a busy student nurse that wanted more from life. I was obese, unhappy, stressed, and craved a better life. I was diagnosed with Endometriosis, and knew I had to start taking care of my body. It was definitely my wake up call! • During my very first program, I lost almost 15lbs in 21 days, and knew I could make this health thing a sustainable lifestyle. You see, I tried all the diet fads, pills, etc, but none of it ever stuck. I'd lose the weight, finish the diet, then gain it all back because I didn't learn how to actually take care of myself on a day to day basis. • Fast forward to September of last year, and I finally decided that I wanted to help other people change their lives too! I've always been a team player (thanks HS sports!), and I love cheering on my clients and motivating them to crush those goals and reach for the stars 🌟 • So that's me! 👱‍♀️ Whether you're new here, or have been following me since the very beginning, thank YOU for the love & support! 🥰

I made a mistake. I cooked enchiladas the other day using a mild spice mix, having had them before I thought they would be fine and didn’t check the label. I realise I seem like a total moron, but I am allergic to chilli and thought a mild spice mix would be safe... I was very, very wrong and have been poorly for the last 2 days. Feeling very much like an idiot currently!
