I said I’d catch you if you fall,
and if they laugh, then fuck’em all,
and then I got you off your knees,
put you right back on your feet,
just so you could take advantage of me. 😶💋

He did it!!!!! Our miracle boy is on the couch!!!!!!
It’s been almost 3 months.
Just to put it in context - He couldn’t even walk up a curb a couple of months ago and now he just got on the couch totally unassisted.
Ugly tears right now 😭😭😭😭😭
Day 3: Let me start by saying...I’ve lost 2.4kg since Friday (3 days). Friday morning before my procedure I weighed in at 82.7kg and this morning (Monday) I weighed 80.3kg. Im super happy with that. In all since I started this process/journey on the 20th September 2018 I’ve actually lost 4.1kg but I think it’s easier to track from the day of my balloon insertion so from today I will refer to my weight loss from my insertion day. As for day 3 of this fabulous journey, it started off ok. Still weak and tired and have no energy, which is bound to happen when you don’t eat anything. I actually went to work this morning but 4 hours into it, I had to leave so I’m back on my lounge sipping water and ice blocks. I did actually have 3 tablespoons of low fat yoghurt with 2 tablespoons of protein powder and it hasn’t hurt my tummy as yet. Fingers crossed I can’t tolerate some soup and some puréed apple later tonight. I think I’m on the way up now and feeling hopeful that the shitty part has passed. #gastricballoon#orberaballoon#weightlossjourney#myballoonjourney#yoghurt#ontheup
Happy to have got the first proper weeks training in since busting the shoulder 6 weeks ago! 15hrs banked and some decent mileage 🏃♂️ and 🚲 on the turbo💪 Fitness is definitely a bit down, but got to make a start somewhere right as 2019 isn’t going to train for itself 👊🏻 .
Also a big plus to have finally got to the point where I can start working on the rehab exercises to get me back in the pool 🏊♂️ Might actually be excited to go swimming by the time it’s mended 😂
So often I feel like people want a bargain on skincare and beauty products. You get what you pay for. What you’re willing to buy may not be what others want. Many people are acutely aware of what goes in and on their bodies, why do we make decisions for others up front? ✨ no one will want what I have
✨ no one will do this with me
In the past 2 years, regardless of what I offered, I heard the above Time and Time again. Oh and let’s not forget: ✨The kit is too much
✨the products are too much
✨my network won’t buy it
✨my husband doesn’t believe in me
And while these all may be accurate why are you not thinking YOU can overcome obstacles? Why are YOU not committted? Because here’s the thing, for every time I heard that guess what? •People still joined, still found success, still sold those products ......and became leaders. And they changed their life and the lives of others•
What’s holding you back?
First time putting Evie to bed all week. First time sitting downstairs all week. First time getting Pepper love all week 💞
Mom was discharged and is home and happy tonight, though she still has some needed answers and follow up.
I got partial answers from the neurologist. Classic, text book panic attacks brought on by physical and mental stress I guess I didn’t recognize, ruled out any neurological disease or spinal cord issues. Hard for me to buy it, I mean, life is great, I’m a very happy woman. But we saw one of the best neurologists around and his confidence was comforting. However that’s only part of it. More doctor appointments this week and hopefully relief and more explanations for the rest of it.
Thank you so much to everyone who has been thinking of us and reaching out. I feel optimistic we are both on the road to being well again. 🙏
It is important to remember that I started this self love ❤️ wellness journey as a rape survivor. Then, I met two male Marine Corps Veterans, and heard their stories firsthand about their experience of rape. I know it’s not such a pretty word, but it exists so you cannot turn a blind eye to it. One was active duty, and experienced rape as a boy, by another boy. The other survivor was a veteran and experienced rape as an active duty member in boot camp at the hands of his drill instructor. He actually won in court that same day that I met him while picking up sandwiches at the local deli. Yeah, I know. Wild. I also pride myself on being someone that people can open up to. I wasn’t vicariously traumatized either thankfully because he had worked through and learned to own his emotions instead of dumping them mindlessly on other people. What I did take on was the fact that I was more than ever aware of our choice as survivors. We have many choices but two of them are that you can either allow the rapist to control you for the rest of your life through failing to own your positive personal power that makes changes in your life instead of trying to own others. Or, we can fall into an endless cycle of self-doubt: “Did you deserve that treatment?” .. “Did you deserve the violence?” NO. There isn’t one human being who deserves violence. An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind. However, it is up to you to bring yourself 1st TOWARD, then T⃗H⃗R⃗O⃗U⃗G⃗H⃗, and finally B҉E҉Y҉O҉N҉D҉ the actions of another. STOP looking at life like it is happening to you; you are in fact experiencing life and therefore able to redeem the type of experience that you want to have moving forward. TBH, what was worse than the rape was the fact that we live in a society that doesn’t talk about it. My own teenage best friend shrunk back from being there for me through the temporary pain that was caused which caused more unnecessary suffering. Therefore, I SPEAK about the experience because I care to lighten the burdens of those around me. You are not shameful but the actions of the rapist are indeed. Free yourself. Most importantly, forgive. 🙏 #RapeSurvivor#ILoveMyBody#SelfLoveCoach#OnTheUp
