#LupusWarrior

Back injuries AUGHHH. Physio tape came off today and couldn't help myself but start gently back into training (mind you was only 5 days of boredom). gentle swimming plus yoga ball core work so the back is always supported, planking and on knee push ups kept my back safe and allowed me to get my fix :) back in no time....#noholdingback #norestforthewicked #gym #gymproblems #gymgirl #fit #fitgirls #workout #lighttraining #recovery #exercise #fitspo #fitnessaddiction #fitnessmotivation #nevergiveup #lupuswarrior #lupus #girlswithtattoos #girlswholift #girlswithmuscle #strength #muscles

Sometimes you have to push through the fatigue and make the most of your days. This year my aim is to make as many memories as possible.
This weekend was full of races, BBQs and cricket but most importantly friends and family. Couldn’t do it without them. #lupus may make everyday a struggle but doesn’t mean I have to give in....just continue to have naps.πŸ’œ

Been a minute since I took a pic or been out for that matter. Haven’t been feeling so good lately, but today I had to show lupus who was boss and get my ass out of bed, beat that face, suck up the pain and fatigue and spend some much needed quality time celebrating one of my best friend’s birthday. I’m glad I forced myself to get the spoons to do so! ☺️πŸ₯„πŸ’ͺπŸΌπŸ’œπŸ¦‹ #fucklupus #lupuswarrior #chronicillness #invisibleillness #warriorgoddess #mermaid #moonchild #spoonie

Blue Chip Talent Jordan Ashley @jay__ash was diagnosed a year ago with Lupus. She thought she would have to give up Rugby but with her determination and passion, she is training hard again and in such good condition! She says β€œThere will always be obstacles” and we say it’s up to you what to turn them into- barriers or bridges. β €β €β €

Do you ever miss who you were? Just some food for thought. Please share your answers, good, bad, or uncertain. No judgement. There is no right or wrong. Just your YOUR OWN honest feelings.

So this was removed today because it doesn't follow community guidelines? WTF? My vagina is not showing and my very peirced nipples are very clearly blurred out..... but hey thanks for the complaint. I'm putting it back up because the removal is bogus. There is no reason it should have been taken down, there is nothing tasteless or inappropriate about the photo. #beautifullybroken #beautifuldisaster #tattoedbeauty #instamodels #vikingblooded #germanicgirl #wintersoul #inkedgirls #tattoo #modeling #natural #inked #crankypants #peirced #letsmakeart #lupuswarrior

I wanted to say hello πŸ‘‹ to some of my new followers and introduce myself a bit more. Below is taken from my about me page on my blog, so you can find the full version linked in my bio πŸ’•
.
.
While I know that my autoimmune illnesses can never be cured, I have regained control of my health by coming to better understand my body and mind, and understanding how to minimize and manage my symptoms effectively. I've learned through a lot of trial and error that listening to my body is KEY for a successful and healthy life. Through nutrition, self care, western medicine, exercise and other wellness techniques, I feel that my quality of life is higher, I can achieve more and that I am winning in my battles with chronic illness. I am still learning, and I hope to encourage and strengthen others on their wellness journeys as we all seek to find what makes us feel our at our best, and feel alive.
.
Don't get me wrong, I still face symptoms and flare-ups. Fatigue, joint pain, swelling, achy pains, migraines, stiffness, skin rashes, nausea, anxiety, depression, etc. You name it, and I have probably been there more than a few times. But choosing wellness over complacency, choosing to make decisions that I know my body will thank me for, has not only minimized my symptoms and made life easier, but has empowered myself within a body that attacks itself. Making positive choices for myself is an act of self-love in itself, and I have learned how to love and care for myself on this journey more than anything.
.
I think we all have a duty to be exactly who we were created as. That just in our creation, we are given value, beauty and significance. I think this requires a true acceptance of everything we have faced, and will continue to face. We are not the sum of our experiences. When I come to love who I am and where I came from, I am able to take better care of myself and live more freely. I am able to move toward being my best self, exactly how I was created. πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ»

Don’t be afraid to stand out. To be the light in a world of darkness. To swim against the current. ✌🏻
