👋🏼. My name is Katrina!
4 weeks ago I was just coming out of surgery for my cervical cancer. 3 years ago I was recovering from a life saving surgery for a bowel blockage. Today I am once again climbing back up! I have to say that through all the ups and downs of disease I have never been so amazed at how incredible our bodies are. 2 months ago I was so sick in a massive Crohn’s flare and in so much pain I could barely get out of bed. The end of August we took a family vacation and I caught a flu which sent me into a massive flare. My immune system was very compromised due to the medication I had been on for my Crohn’s disease. I had quit taking it when I was diagnosed with cervical cancer. It was scary and I went into a dark place. Luckily I discovered that darkness wasn’t meant for me and I began to grow again. I’m grateful to be healing as fast as I am.... 3 weeks ago I was barely moving. I’m here to share my story. I’m here to promote how real food nutrition can heal your body. I’m here to be the proof that darkness will fade if you let your light shine!
I’m here with my 3-5 weights doing what I can for the next 2 weeks until my 10lb limit is gone! ;). Now I gotta get back to mom duties and head out to Parent Teacher conferences 🙏🏽
Exercises shown. Shoulder press. Both arms and single arm press. Single arm press is great for using a heavier weight while still staying under weight restriction. Also it engages the core a little more!
The first pic was today 6 minutes treadmill warm up then HIIT for 24. The send was 22 on the treadmill and the rest was strength training. It is crazy to me to see the difference between the in the calories burned between the two. Getting back at it. #rebuildingme#oneinchleadstoonemile

I haven't cracked this book open in a couple of years. Even with the convenience of technology, I enjoy reading from its pages. #4in1#Scriptures#LDS The Lord always knows..... This is just what I needed. #spiritualfeeding#rebuildingME Family goal: 1 Chapter a day w our Matriarch + Family prayers. #TYheavenlyFather ❤❤🙏🙏😘😘
As a MAN sometimes I mess up and fall but I know my worth and value. My father always taught me to be humble even if it feels not right. I've went from creating venues, asking people for help, building foundations for my businesses but never moving with it consistently. Why? Because I involve the wrong people apart of my life to destroy my life of light and goals. What hurts is that your own will laugh and talk on you and telling others what you can't do INSTEAD of helping you create to your vision. [But Imma MAN and I have to stay humble]
Last year in April I watched my father take his last breathe and that killed me mentally and ruined me physically and I delt with that daily up to this point. [But Imma MAN and I have to stay humble] I'm not here to post things for hype or people feeling sorry for me but the MAN you see in this picture is real and bleed just as much as you.
So before you slam my name in the mud and tell others that I'm not about making sound/moves pleeeeaaaase keep that same energy but else were.
Consider that EVERYONE doesn't get fed with a #GOLDSPOON
I am who God says I am... #GrownBlackKing#Trueblack#Strongminded#Supportblackmen#Rebuildingme#FACTXGVO#Malemodel#ambassador#HireMe#BLACKMANSTAND
Sometimes you have to start from scratch again and take it a day at a time. Don’t beat yourself up. Put one foot in front of the other and keep moving forward. It’s been a long road for me since mid-2017 but I’m gonna make a better version of myself. I may not be able to lift what I use to but at least I’m getting back in the game. Like my Zachariah says “preserver”. #perserverance#homegym#mytime#willpower#onestepatatime#weights#armday#morivated#rebuildingme
Truth and Reality
Truth- I have always set a goal for myself when I wanted to lose weight but when it got to a certain point, I got scared to lose the rest and I would let myself go again. The reason for my fat, my body weight what ever you want to call it was my comfort blanket to secure myself from the world after I was sexually assaulted in the military almost 5 years ago. Only wanting to look beautiful in the face and not in the body to avoid it ever happening again.
Reality- Found out I was prediabetic from the doctor was a wake up call for me to get my shit together. I had to have a talk with myself, "Kiki, are you willing to put in the work to get better or get worst just to protect yourself and your thoughts. This was the only piece of my healing I was holding on to.
Here I am today working on me to heal completely. Founding this fitness community has helped me along the way as I found my way back to myself. People that help you dont have to be near you but they communicate with you like they are @phase6fitness
@kellsbells88 @coach_rt3 @azures.positive. Thank you for being a big part of my growth seriously.
