“Obstacles don’t have to stop you.
.
If you run into a wall, don’t turn around, and give up.
.
Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.”

Sometimes the things we want most are right within our grasp... 🌊⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ _____⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I've been wanting to go to the beach for months, and even though I live only about 20 minutes away, I've been coming up with all kinds of excuses for why I can't go. Too much traffic. Too many people. Too busy. Too tired. Blah blah blah...⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
_____⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Last night, in the middle of this same internal debate I asked myself, "What if I just went anyway? How would I make that happen?" Long story short, I'm headed out there today as soon as I get off work. Because as soon as I stopped looking at obstacles and instead looked for possibility, a sweet little pocket of time "magically" opened up. How 'bout that? 😏⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
_____⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Don't get bogged down by your obstacles and limitations. "What if" is a POWERFUL question. Make it a staple in your thought life and you'll be amazed at what you can make happen for yourself.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
_____⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What's your "What if" today?? Big or small, it's all amazing and I wanna hear it! 👇🏾👇🏾👇🏾⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Looking through pictures from when I first got diagnosed back 11 years ago, I was taking 800mg asacol, 60mg predniscilone, 175mg aza, 10mg alendronic Acid, calcium d3 2 times a day, iron tablets 2 times a day and literally lived on antispasmodics this was daily!! It’s mad to see the difference and how huge my face went and how much my hair fell out! I was heartbroken over the hair situation but look how much it has grown back! I love looking back at how far I’ve come in this journey #ulcerativecolitis #crohns #ileostomy #stoma #hairloss #thenandnow #ibdwarrior #ibdwarriorprincess

Wisst ihr, dass ich gerade meine Geburtstagswoche feier? Ich hab das Gefühl, dass zumindest der Herbst das mitbekommen hat. Mein Erster Geburtstag war am Montag, dass hat wohl inzwischen jeder mitbekommen, aber am Samstag ist mein zweiter, der Tag an dem ich fast mein Leben verloren oder wie ich es nenne, mein Leben zurück gewonnen habe und meinen kleinen Stomafreund Henry gleich dazu. Vor zwei Jahren stand mein Dickdarm kurz vor der Perforation und in einer Not-OP wurde er mir fast vollständig entfernt. Einige OPs später und ein paar Organe weniger, stehe jetzt hier und fühle mich zum ersten mal wieder schmerzfrei und lebendig. ....

*Make friends with change.* Wednesday is my last day in my current job. After almost 8 years with this company. Pretty crazy 😯. My fresh start is a career change, which is intimidating, but I’m excited. I’m hoping to do everything in my power to feel better before the new job begins. My first 10 days of antibiotics ended today, but I need to take a couple more tomorrow to enjoy my last day of work and the going-away party. I’ll see once my stress drops down tomorrow night, but as of now, I feel pain in my cuff & j pouch if I miss an antibiotic by a few hours..
-
Then I’m trying some new appointments - to combine my personal research/testing with a doctor who will examine the full picture with me. Staying positive.
-
This will be my first career change- after 12 years. I hope others have had a good experience with this type of change!🤞

Today’s- Tabata Strength, much different from last week, as I pushed hard then, and felt amazing, until later that night/next morning. So this morning, I modified to be safe, which isn’t as fun, but whatever. Still a good workout!! (BY THE WAY - that is a support belt that is making my shirt awkward- not rolls- okaaay! 🤨) ————————————————————.
Yesterday’s- Cardio Challenge, as it wasn’t recorded because sometimes the cord doesn’t work- but then realized last night my toddler had it unplugged in the back of the tv stand. ————————————————————.

You are stronger than you think you are.

6 months ago would have been firmly against self injecting yet alone self infusing.

Second one of these. Did this one by myself. Little bit of pain so far. Hoping for a quicker absorption this week to avoid the painful bloat.

Next week will be doing these at home.

I have to give a shout out to @washlaundry in #sangertx for the fantastic job they did washing and folding my clothes! They are even separated by what they are to make it easy to put away. I figure I can hopefully handle one bag a day! Fatigue is real with #chronicillness and you try to found ways to cope and get things done. @chuckie1956 and @jonathonanderson do their own...so yes, this is all mine....all three months worth! I guess I could go further and see if I could stretch it to 6 months!😂😂😂

Fecal Transplants for IBD & IBS - is this a miracle cure? (LIVE Training)
.
Quick question for you:
.
Do you have Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) such as Crohn's, Colitis and/or treatment-resistant IBS?
.
And one more:
.
Are you facing invasive surgeries and or increasingly hazardous drugs to manage your condition.. if you haven't already started down that path?
.
If this sounds like you, then you are going to want to be aware of a practice that has been used safely since the 4'th century called Fecal Microbiota Transplants (FMT).
.
This coming Friday, October 19, at 3 PM PST / 6 PM EST, we are hosting a LIVE training discussing the use of FMT in IBD and IBS as well as some other conditions (the conditions might surprise you).
.
Here's what we will be covering:

The conditions treated with FMT in addition to IBD/IBS

The safety and efficacy of this therapy (Hint: Zero adverse events definitely associated with FMT)

Procedure for receiving FMT (donor screening along with the decision to choose capsules or enemas)

AND...how you can get medically supervised FMT if you qualify!
.
.
This is a LIVE training where we will reserve some time to answer any of your FMT related questions.
.
If the thought of having a complete remission from your IBD/IBS symptoms appeals to you, then I suggest you join us Friday for this live training.
.
Link in this profile BIO to sign up. Please, do it now.
.
We will likely offer a replay of this training as long as the technology works in our favor, however, I can not guarantee anything so suggest you attend live.
.
See you there,
.
Joel Sprechman and Dr. Jason Klop
.
PS. The link to sign-up is in my profile Bio. Please, join us. FMT has helped many with IBD, IBS, SIBO and more, it could help you.
.
PPS - If you know you can’t make the Live training (We will miss you !) reply to this email with your FMT questions and we will do our best to answer them.

Track your poops. I SAID IT!! It’s actually not weird at all. @happily_healing & I have been talking about our poop for so many years that it’s so normal now. But I mean, what’s up? Why keep track?
-
You can learn so much about your body if you keep an eye on what’s going on. What’s your transit times on meals? Is it 6 hours or is 6 days? Most people have meals backed up inside them for daysss and don’t even know it. Whoa, which meal just came out?! Or just the quick peak and oh! That looks normal.
-
What’s the shape like? The consistency? Because everyone knows a good poop when they see one. Check that bristol stool chart or just gain some collective intuition on your own experiences. It should be shaped like a large banana, vary in length, single send, zero resistance coming out and make ya feel jolly good after!
-
I remember when food entered my colon I’d feel SO fatigued. Drained. Tired. I’d be like, where did all my energy go?! This was when I was eating a high fat cooked plant-based diet.
-
And then there was the time before I adopted #consciouseating. I didn’t know what meal was what and how long it was in me. All I knew was that it smelled like a dead animal...because it was!! And food matter like that inside of you is damaging your colon.
-
If your poop smells, that is food rotting, putrefying & going rancid inside of you. This is acidic waste. Acids burn!! And don’t we all know that burning diarrhea feeling. The ol’ spicy b-hole. God knows I’ve experienced days straight of that! But what’s that mean? Well it’s simply the body’s mechanism for evacuating toxic waste from your body ASAP. Smart body, really.
-
And then there’s #constipation. Stagnation. This is almost equally as damaging to the intestines. Low motility. What’s the reason for this? Most likely dehydration coupled with lack of fiber coupled with compromised mucosal lining. Most of our meals are robbing our bodies of water. Why are we told to drink 1/2 your body weight in fluid ounces a day? Because we eat such dehydrating foods!

One step forward two steps back 😩
So close to getting off prednisone, now I’ve had to double the dose of not only that, but everything else 😑 
12 pills a day wasn’t the solution I was hoping for, but for now it is necessary. IBD is kicking my butt, but that’s totally fine, because I’m about to kick it’s butt right back really soon 💪🙂 - #ibdawareness #ulcerativecolitisfighter #chronsandcolitis #autoimmunedisease #ibdwarrior #prednisonesucks #ibdsuperheroes #spooniewarrior #ulcerativecolitis #colitis #chrons #chronicillness #chronicillnesswarrior #fatigue

Anybody else take so many pills a day they need a pill box to keep track of them?!😂 I've taken tablets since the age of four when I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism but the amount has gradually increased! Currently I am taking; 250mcg levothyroxine, vitamin A, B, C and E, thiamine, zinc, selenium and a centrum performance multivitamin. Plus my cocodamol and buscopan when I need it.. which is at least daily, sometimes more than once a day. I've also got charcoal tablets, 5htp tablets and L-tyrosine tablets which I take when I feel I need them. I think I should rattle😂💊 #crohnscolitis #crohns #crohnswarrior #crohnsfighter #crohnslife #crohnsawareness #crohnsandcolitis #crohnsdisease #ibd #ibdandme #ibdawareness #ibdwarrior #chronicillness #chronicallyill #chronicillnessawareness #chronicfatigue #instacrohns #invisibleillnessawareness #inflammatoryboweldisease #invisibleillness #medicine #medication #hypothryoid #underactivethyroid #tablets #breakfast #yummy #spoonielife #spooniewarrior #spoonieproblems

Perfectly I M P E R F E C T... Oftentimes we are our biggest enemy, our biggest obstacle. We let our minds get in the way all the time. It’s easy to feel less than ideal when we begin comparing our lives to others, our bodies and faces to others. It’s even harder when we start comparing ourselves to those who have the same disease. @baronbaptisteyoga says “Acceptance of what is and what is not happening, in a pose or in life- creates a mood of peace.”..... resisting what is can cause greater emotional suffering than the illness itself. If you can find it in yourself to believe that all of your struggles, your trials and tribulations, have a purpose and a reason in making you stronger, wiser, and more compassionate. That yes, you are imperfect. You have flaws. Yes, our bodies are imperfect and we suffer things that many will never have to endure. But those things make you so uniquely and beautifully... perfectly IMPERFECT. Your scars, emotional, physical, spiritual.. make you one unreplicable, amazing work of art. Celebrate it and use it as a tool to help and inspire others! You are powerful. 🔥✨😍

I preach the positive lifestyle. Even though life and its circumstances got me on my knees on every corner, it never broke my spirit. I embrace every situation and take something good out of it. I encourage everyone to do the same, try to see a good thing in bad situation and slowly shift your mindset into a new baseline, a positive baseline.

Repost from @thekindnessrocksproject (go to their link for full post bc I stink at reposting!) Tonight we are so honored to feature a kind soul named Rebecca Babcock🙏🏻❤️
Rebecca has become so passionate about The Kindness Rocks Project. Making rocks has become almost a kind of therapy for her amongst her personal health struggle journey . She has started two projects in Greenwich, CT in Parks and also continues to take them on her travels, recently to France & Israel.
She has been tagging her pictures on Instagram, to share her journey with other project members. Her mom said,”Rebecca has had a rough road, but always gets up with a smile and a desire to help others.” Join us in wishing her a very Happy day, as today is her Birthday!

Ever wonder what the longest word in the dictionary is? Well, in honor of national dictionary day, the longest word is  pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis, which refers to a lung disease contracted from the inhalation of very fine silica particles, specifically from a volcano; medically, it is the same as silicosis. Comment how many letters this word is! ⠀

Keeping tabs on what my new medication is doing to my organs, in particular my liver. Purinethol can cause liver toxicity, so my blood is being monitored carefully. 💉
.
I must say that the nausea I dreaded so much has not played up, yet. My appetite is as normal, luckily. My urine is quite dark, so I hope there won’t be any complications. 🤒

It takes a couple of days to get the results of my bloodwork. I hope this medicine will catch on and yield favorable results for my wellbeing. 🙏🏻

It’s National Boss’ Day, guys, and I think we should chat about it. The reality is, even though I'm pursuing the entrepreneurial life, right now I'm still holding down jobs as a music ministries admin and a barista. After all, it takes time to make your dreams happen - time and a whole lot of flexibility! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
_____⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I'm beyond blessed to have two bosses (besides myself 😆) who are almost always willing to work with me as I balance both jobs, business-building, performing, rest, and the occasional poorly-timed flare. Yeah...it's nuts. But we make it work! I know that not everyone gets that kind of flexibility when working outside the home, and I don't take it for granted. 🙏🏾⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
_____⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So Happy Boss’ Day to you, @conductorjuan and @bounij_! I appreciate you more than I can say. 💕⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I had a bad day yesterday. Tried to hit legs and left because even with preworkout I felt totally drained. Even after 8-9 hours of sleep. Just super exhausted and fatiged. My body was telling me not to go to the gym, to rest but NOOOOOO!  I had to go. Didn't get much done but man I am sore today. I usually listen to my body but I really push myself sometimes just to be sure it's not just being lazy. Of course I pay for it later. So  I must learn to listen a little better. It's funny when you have to practice what you preach because you get so driven to reach a goal. LISTEN to your body! Especially if you have a chronic condition!! Take a day or two to get your mind and body rested. Then attack the goal again. To not do so can lead to even longer, unwanted rest due to injury.  Love to all!!

Most infusions are simple; D's veins cooperate, the IV gets set quickly, the blood is collected without vein callapse, and meds easily flow without having to set a new IV. Not so this morning. 😕 Today, blood pressure dropped, veins shut down, D got nauseous, ice and juice were brought, D had to get his feet up, his arms were wrapped in warm blankets, and a pinch hitter was called in for another go. Through it all D kept his sense of humor and worked with the nurses to get the job done. Now he's doing school work and the meds are flowing! 😊 #praisethelord #whenitseasy #whenitsnot #thisguysachamp #goofydude #ibdwarrior #livingwithcrohns #livingwithcolitis #livinglifetoitsfullest

People without chronic illness don’t get it. They may think they do, but unless you’ve experienced it, you can only imagine what it’s like. I wanted to try to keep my posts positive, and on the whole this one is. The truth is we CAN endure so much more than we think.  Just because we look ok or try to keep going despite the pain, the fatigue and everything else that comes with chronic and invisible illness, it doesn’t mean that we actually are ok. So don’t attempt to ‘know what it’s like’ or decide that we’re looking well. It just means that we keep fighting.  #ibdwarrior #crohnsdisease #crohns #spoonie #positivevibes #dontjudgeabookbyitscover

How do you break the relentless cycle of a chronic illness? It's a constant trade off of symptoms and severity. Every time I think I've nailed it, the chain comes off. It's like living life with a slow puncture 😥 #pumpmeup #crohnslife #viciouscycle #relentless

This is the bag of magic, without this treatment I would have a limited quality of life. There would be no remission, therefore my fitness dream would not exist.
.
The past week leading up to my infusion has been tough with the chronic fatigue and low mood. Yes it is tiring driving an hour to my local hospital every 8 weeks, but I couldn't be in better hands. The nurses are lovely and can't do enough for me ❤.

I hope and pray that one day there will be a cure for Crohns Disease and Ulcerative Colitis 🙏

So tired this morning 😴😴😴
Would happily have slept another 2-3 hours but sadly have work again today after a couple of days on leave.

We went tour guiding up round the Highlands, and I got this photo sitting in traffic leaving glencoe. I'm always intrigued by why things always look so good in a reflection, it's so odd but beautiful. .

(親バカ目線で)上手に使えてるうえに、持ち方おかしいとかもない。
私の箸をひったくって使ってても、基本(持ち方、指の位置、広げて閉じて掴むこと)はしっかり抑えてるようで、同じやり方なのになんでうまくいかないんだろう?と試行錯誤しております。
プチトマトも掴む。超集中してる。(笑)

実は身近に箸の使い方がめちゃくちゃな人がおりまして…いやあ、パパって呼ばれてるらしいんですけどね?(笑)
いい見本になっています。
お箸のマナー、がんばろうね!

Have no videos from yesterday and resting today, so here's some skwaats from Sunday. 5 x 55kg, penultimate set. I did another set at 57.5 after but wasn't that happy with the depth on those.

Things im now avoiding. Porridge oat husk , salad from a burger , mango chutney chunks , reconstituted chips or fries. Too many Pringles and too big a Sunday dinner.

My #MCM everyday ❤

@iammendelillouz The challenges we face are all bumps in our perfectly imperfect journey. Forever by my side, forever by your side, we will get through it all together. I know this is just a setback. I know there is hope. I know you will get better.

Eight weeks post op: Fully recovered
•
It feels great to pick up weights again. I’m starting light and taking it slow, realizing how much I missed lifting. Cardio is great and I’ll continue doing my triathlon training but I love moving around some weight
•
Going through surgery and the recovery process has taught me a lot. When you’re laying around in pain for such a long time, you really start to understand what’s important to you
•
When I was laid up in the hospital bed a few days after surgery, I knew I wanted to make some significant changes in life. I wanted to use my experience to positively impact people in a similar situation and show them what is possible; that there is still so much life to live
•
I’m grateful for you. I’m grateful because you chose to follow me, follow my story, support me, and help me throughout this entire process. I never imaged I’d have over a thousand followers just two months after starting this space
•
God uses people in so many ways and I’m thankful He is working through me to spread His word and touch so many lives. I’m no longer angry or upset that I have Crohn’s Disease because I know its allowed me to better serve Jesus

Day 6 of 40.
Mondays are so crucial man. You have the chance to set your work week up for success or cause it to spiral down into a pessimistic death trap. You just have to wake up and give it a pop in the mouth because you already know it's going to be there waiting with an evil grin. Perspective! #Amphetamax from @maxeffortmuscle has me dialed in!! Here's a legit back superset to make you realize you do have muscles back there. Part of day 1 workout plus 150 walking lunges✔. Stomach was telling me be lazy but I was telling it otherwise because #fuckcrohns and #fuckibs

People often ask me how they should transition from their flare up diet to their remission diet.
.
This should really be a slow process that is based on your individual symptoms.
.
But in general, as your bouts of diarrhea decrease, slowly increase your fiber intake.
.
One way I like to do that is by adding 1 more color to your meal.
.
A lot of times people in flares have a bland, tan/brownish-colored diet. So by adding 1 colorful fruit or vegetable into your meal you’ll be adding more fiber as well as phytonutrients (which are antioxidants) into your diet.
.
***Keep in mind*** if you have Crohn’s and have a history of blockages-talk to your doctor specifically about whether you can increase your fiber intake before making any changes to your fiber intake. ♥️

Seriously 😐. I wrote my exams today and they are the only thing that seemed to go smoothly ironically lol. Im starting to flare and since it’s a 2+ hour drive each way to school, I had only a tea and no food so I could actually make it through the drive and exams (and there were a couple close calls while driving) and to top it off my muffler crapped out on my suv so that was a super nerve wracking drive back home. Certainly not the way I had hoped my birthday would go but at least now I’m finally home and snuggling in bed with Vader...while hoping the small dinner I had manages to actually stay down. 
I’m still trying to stay optimistic that stress has caused me to feel so awful and that over the next few days things get better again 💜

Eating out was always scary for me which is why I avoided it. I never knew how I would react to the food and that made me nervous. Eating out usually brought on #IBD symptoms. .
.
Feels so great to be able to enjoy a meal out with friends again. Food is always better with company. It's also better with no associated symptoms!! Am I right?! And remember lovely ppl, symptoms/reactions to a food can appear up to 72 hrs later

Had a great 6 week follow up today! Huge shout out to Dr. Bernardin. Considering my health conditions and the circumstances she made this pregnancy a wonderful experience (.. And helped me conquer a huge fear of mine)!!
Also a huge shout out to my specialist for following us through my pregnancy and helping me have a healthy, safe pregnancy and daughter! 
To everyone out there who have been told they can't have kids.. Don't lose hope.. EVER. That's what I was told and did lose hope but, five years later Tenley is proof that it can happen when you least expect it and it will turn out to be the most amazing experience of your life 💕💜💕

• A Day to Breathe •

Oh, what a beautiful day this was. There's something medicinal about hiking through the the woods and leaving the noise behind with only the sounds of nature and your footsteps.
•
This truly is part of my treatment of Crohn's Disease. Unwind. Breathe. Let the worries of the world go. No frustration. Just a path and willpower to climb over a ridge.
•
There's also value in being still. If you struggle with finding stillness, chances are you need it pretty badly.

I’m not gonna pretend like this isn’t getting to me. I knew I high dose of steroids would cause puffiness and inflammation, but I literally feel like I’ve put on 100kgs since I’ve been in hospital. Only four weeks ago, I was proud of the half marathon time I was able to achieve at Blackmores, now I feel like I don’t even wanna wear a singlet because of how puffy I feel. I have to remind myself that I’ve been doing nothing but sitting in bed for a week, after being sick last week as well and not exercising, plus taking iv steroids, and new medication. It’s only for a time, and just one of those things. Hoping healing will come soon and it’ll all be worth it 🙏 #crohnsandcolitis #crohnsandcolitisuk #ibdawareness #ibdwarrior

Its so hard during a flare...and we all have those people in our life who get it and those who dont. Crohns and IBD and all chronic illnesses can be so hard and I have found lately very isolating.  Home from our 3rd week long hospital stay in 5 weeks. I am glad this one tries his best to get it.
