#AutoImmuneDisease

Did legs and cardio. Overdid it and my ankle is very angry. Oops. Side thought- I get told I have a lot of discipline. But having an invisibleillness/autoimmune disease/UC, you just have to. It’s the only way to feel a bit better. However, I do think this can get out of control because it is empowering. #gym#fitness#fitfam#fitspo#weight#lifting#lift#girlswholift#discipline#conquer#goals#mental#physical#cardio#legday#invisibleillness#spoonie#crohns#ulcerativecolitis#autoimmunedisease#motivation#pinspiration#words#quotes#self#selflove#selfcare#health#wellness#lifestyle

Kicking MS in the teeth. This disease WILL NOT keep me from doing the things I love. Stimulating, firing muscles and getting circulation going. Slow and steady.

My GP did a health care plan for me which means I get to meet with a nutritionist at the end of the month and I am hoping we can get food intolerance tests done. It's such a nightmare trying to work your way through "endo diets" "anti inflammatory" and so on. Even this chart here for "Anti bloat foods" there are a few items on here at least that I know triggers intestinal pains in me πŸ€”let's hope for clear cut answers.

How much do I cost?
.
Invisible illness carries many burdens, on our supportive family and friends, on our confidence, on our relationships, on our identity, on our emotions6, on our careers and a huge financial burden.
.
This little needle contained a great drug called Humira. I take one injection every 10 to 14 days to battle my Crohns and is only one several medications in my daily life.

How much do you think a box (2 doses) costs?
Comment and then take a look at the next photo.

I vividly remember the first time it happened... I was with my (now) ex-wife in a small Seattle store, shopping for appliances for our new house, when I impulsively pulled away to catch my breath in the bathroom. I locked the door behind me and made my way to the sink, placing my hands on the cold porcelain vanity and looking down at my feet. The minute my eyes found themselves in the mirror, tears began rolling down my face... no expensive European refrigerator was going to stop our marriage from completely unraveling, no matter how hard we tried. "I'm okay. I'm okay. I'm okay," I told myself as I ugly cried, watching my heartbroken, overwhelmed reflection... As I swallowed the salt water that pooled in the corners of my mouth; as I swallowed the honesty I could no longer deny... "I'm okay. I'm okay." And ultimately I was... Ultimately, I dabbed at my face, washed my hands, and went back into the store to pick out our fancy double-oven, and life moved on. And then months later, so did I. A friend texted tonight to ask how I am. "I'm doing pretty well," I told her. "Feeling great after my weekly procedure tonight. Tuesday's are my favorite." A few minutes later a timer went off so I grabbed a potholder and reached for the small frying pan in my oven. But I didn't have the strength to lift it out with one hand. Did you know that you can actually hear it when a piece of your soul unexpectedly crumbles? I took a deep breath and went into the bathroom to stare at myself in the light. "You're okay," I told myself repeatedly as my chin trembled... And ultimately I was. Ultimately, we all are. We are all okay... we are all okay.

Looking for a little inspiration!Β  I use Pinterst so often for recipes, that I often forget how lovely it is to sit down and thumb through a beautiful cookbook.Β  Missing is the Oh She Glows Everyday Cookbook - another favourite!Β  What cookbook are you loving right now, or is Pinterest more of a go-to?

Day 21: go to for lows #projectbluenovember Yes I can say a juice box saved my child's life. So did the icing on the softball field once, and skittles lots and lots of times and glucose tabs skiing. Lows are so scary to witness #diabetesawarenessmonth always have low supplies stocked βœ”οΈ @dexcom has helped catch so many of these before they were super low and we are so thankful for that technology! #warriorup

And then she made this chocolate...πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ˜„ ok maybe it’s not the best one ever but it’s a start, plus it’s #lowcarb ☺️ IN THE BLENDER: one cup of water, one tablespoon @bulletproof cacao powder, 1 tsp @fourthandheart ghee, 1 tsp @nutiva coconut oil, 1 tsp @ommushrooms immune powder, half scoop @furtherfood marine collagen and a little bit of chia seeds. Also added some almond milk, IF you try the recipe you may need to add less cacao or maybe some sweetener πŸ‘ŒπŸ» If you drink cacao like that, it’s a great source of magnesium and healthy fats πŸ‘ŠπŸ»

Sometimes having a 100% home cooked meal isn't realistic. At least having easy main dish dinner options are needed for a busy mom like me. I am so glad that finding healthy gluten free options become more and more affordable and available. Found this @Wal-Mart. Husband & toddler approved!!! πŸ™ŒπŸ˜ŠπŸ΄
