For the past 4-5 weeks I’ve had symptoms that wouldn’t go away 😏. My eyelid twitched for 3 weeks straight, my nerves in my lower body felt on fire, my head was SO foggy. I woke up in the middle of the night from my leg pain and did everything I could to stop my eye twitch. I gave up coffee/caffeine/alcohol and processed food. I supplemented, ate so much nutrient rich food, I rested, I tried to stay away from my screen . NOTHING worked🤷‍♀️ and no body (I saw doctors) besides me seemed to be alarmed. I’m on the other side now , I’m not scared anymore, and feel i have clarity as to why this happened. It’s called BODY WISDOM and it’s a result of EMOTIONAL PURGING, an unintentional (for me) but necessary process. Head to the blog to learn more. Link in bio. Super curious if anyone else has experienced this/is interested in learning how to tap into those buried parts of your being ♥️ it’s not pretty but I do think it’s so important to be in touch with who we are no matter what type of trauma we have endured. Love you all, happy Monday from a much better feeling LiLi ♥️🙋🏼‍♀️

When this mama gets bad news from my support team about my most recent injury, I do a #booty🍑 and #posing side by side comparison.
Three weeks out from my first #competition on left, 7.5 weeks out from upcoming comp on right. 💪
AND I am eating more food (in variety AND quantity) and doing less #cardio this prep 🥦🥒🥩🥩🥩🥦🥒🥑🍌
Still waiting to see when my hip can handle some serious #hiit and #leg days. Hoping for a quicker than advised return date! ⏰
But it is that fine balance between allowing time to heal and not making things worse which I may have already done. 🤪🤔 My high pain tolerance is both a #blessing and a curse 🤬
My #coach has assured me not to worry, we will make adjustments and get there but I don't rest easily 😲
Have I mentioned that I #love my new coach 😍 and all of my support team which keeps this body moving.
If you know #reiki please send... I am accepting all 🤩😘

Raise your hand if you’ve had to drive your kid around in the middle of the night.
It’s amazing what you can do by 7:30 a.m. When you wake up at 4 a.m., that is.
Teething. Hysterics. Pain. Nothing worked to comfort him. We couldn’t get him to stop screaming so we finally just put him in the car.
I think we saw more of San Francisco in less than two hours than a tourist who’s here for a week. No traffic probably helped.
Drove down the twisting turns of Lombard Street. Up to Coit Tower. Through North Beach. Chinatown. Russian Hill was in there also. Back to the Marina. Over the Golden Gate Bridge (it’s a beautiful drive at night with the lights, highly recommend it), around Marin County. Back over the bridge. Circled the Presidio. And home.
I am so in awe of my husband. He was calm. Awake. I fell asleep several times and he rubbed my leg. He was our hero. I know today will be a new form of hell for him, and I’m eternally grateful that he’s such a good guy. I love you @calotter2000.
He left me with a full, fresh pot of coffee and got back in the car to go to work.
When Archer is teething all he wants is his parents, my boobs, to scream at times, and unlimited Puffs. We don’t even keep Puffs in the house anymore so I had to stock up.
I’ll do my best to give him as much of all that as he needs today.
PS, I ate a deep-fried Oreo for breakfast today. Think I deserved it.
Les hear about what you’ve done to help you child during a rough night.
Thinking of doing a full breakdown on my teething remedies later. Thoughts? I’ve tried EVERYTHING. xx

Quick testimony: I've always been self conscious about my thighs. They naturally don't have any shape and I always had trouble getting rid of cellulite. I found that cardio would shrink my body but wouldn't give my legs the definition I wanted. I also fractured my knee when I was 13 so it would pop out of place and hurt 😩 This Year I started doing strength training! I've been lifting a weight that I'm able to do 3-4 sets of 20 reps for 5-6 leg exercises and I see a huge difference! My legs are looking better, more defined, and are starting to become shapely like I want them to be. Not to mention my knee pain went from a 15 down to a 3. Cardio with resistance training has been good to me! I'm far from done, but I'm proud of the progress I've made. Take baby steps and master consistency. Your body and clothes will love you for it! 🙌🏾🙏🏾😁💪🏾 #ShapeHer #ResistanceTraining #Cardio #Workout #GetFit #GetFine #SetGoals #NotLimits

In life we cross paths with many people but is true in saying that very few gel well and connect with. Feels like @millyoungertattoo and I have been mates for years and already wouldn’t trade the hours of pain (mainly on my foot), talks of love, life, business, success and life aspirations for anything. *
Love those who enter your life, add to it without asking for anything in return, and allow you both to grow as humans.

I have to wear compression stockings, and all who has to wear them knows how complicated they can make putting together a simple outfit. As there is not much info about this online I decided to start a topic today in my insta stories, with the hashtag #stylishwithdvt 💃🏻 would love you all to join the conversation about how to manage to stay chic, while fighting dvt ❣️❣️❣️it’s not only about the look, it’s about the feeling ❣️❣️❣️feeling human, feeling like a woman, feeling not (that) sick.

After constant nagging pain and numerous visits to the chiropractor I decided since I wasn't competing in powerlifting, heavy squats weren't for me.
So I took up split squats as my main movement instead of traditional squats. At first it felt like the worst idea I've ever had and I didn't believe I would keep up with it, but after trying numerous other things that failed I gave it a few weeks.
In those few weeks I learned to love them. Today my legs have NEVER felt better and my strength in my legs is stronger than ever before. You don't have to stop working out if something doesn't feel good, learning to train around injuries is one of the best things I've ever done for my training.

I love having structured workouts. Alone even! But there's something about having the boys involved and climbing all over me that makes my heart happy. It's just fun and lighthearted. I still break a sweat and am staying active! Don't put exercise in a 'box' have fun and involve the kiddos--- they probably have way too much energy that they need it burn off anyways. 😉

I've been discouraged with my workouts lately. It's so hot outside, I'm exhausted, still working long hours, and my hip and leg pain is really intense that I walk like a penguin most of the time 😂 BUT I don't let that stop me. I set the timer and 'band' around for 15-20 minutes every day. I know once the baby is born and I find my footing that I'll have the rest of my life to get back into shape and have the muscle tone I want.

Follow my blog for the full diary every few days (link in bio) Today 6.13 I had surgery to repair my right hip which had a labrum tear & Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) which is a condition where extra bone grows along one or both of the bones that form the hip joint — giving the bones an irregular shape. I had what they call a pincher bone growth which caused damage and tearing of my labrum and major pain, burning, locking and popping for the last 11 months.* Because the bones of the hip with FAI do not fit together perfectly, the bones rub against each other during movement. (Especially for weight training like I did for many years). My leg would go numb at night and when lifting. I couldn’t sleep or bend certain ways. No more squats or lifting. I cried many times in agony on the floor. Working out hurt so bad even on the stair master and I lost a part of me I loved so much. 😞 2 orthopedic doctors. 1 spine specialist. 1 back doctor. 2 months of chiropractic care. 5 months giving up working out completely. 2 MRIs. 1 hip arthogram. 2 X-rays. 1 injection. Countless creams, supplements, massages, etc . I was so sad and I was unable to do the lifting and training I loved so much* I began to give up hope. I felt like no one could tell me if this was my back or hip and then they wanted me to have a procedure on my spine. I needed a second opinion. I met Dr. Hunt from TriCounty Orthopedic who took the time to read my MRIs and sit with me and found the FAI and labrum tear. I’m so glad I went to him. 🙌🏻 It took close to 2 hours to operate but I made it out okay. I will share more on my recovery on my blog so I hope it can help some others. Check www.JerseyGirlTalk.com daily for more updates and photos/videos. Thank god for my husband, family and friends for all their well wishes and support. Your well wishes mean so much and I love all your kind messages ❤️

I feel so blessed to have as many people in my life who care about me even going through all this shit.
.
As some of you know I've been through the ringer lately. I was in an accident broke my leg, tore all the tendons in my ankle & busted my face.
.
Life can feel like the cruelest bitch on the planet & I can't deny feeling that way for a minute. It's crazy how a few moments can change your life (and you) so fundamentally. And there's no escaping it, these moments test your will, your patience, your everything.. so how can it not change you permanently? However the choice is yours in how you're changed. Will you fold to the stress? Blame anything but yourself & skip your part of the responsibility? Not just these, my ankle surgery went well, now just healing and rehab. I'm talking about a much harder test. The test of ego, most of you know I've been a very confident person in many ways (yes even cocky and an asshole) but through this accident I needed to have many teeth removed--including all my top front teeth. How do you deal with this kind of pain? Do you hide and deny it? Cry thinking of what it will do to your romantic life? I say fuck that. I'm owning it & opening up to all of you. I will not be defeated or feel ashamed/sorry for myself. In many ways I actually feel blessed from this happening.
.
Many of you know that I've had a small amount of personal success video editing in the past but I also went through some other challenges not too long ago that had me so close to just give up on my dreams & get any job to pay the bills and just check out in general.
.
Through all this I think I finally understand what the universe was trying to tell me/get through my thick head & the direction I'm supposed to go in. It's lead me to something I'm unbelievably passionate & so excited about. I can't wait to start making serious moves soon. The moral of this story is life is what you make of it & I'm making whatever the hell I want, how I want, despite trials or any hardship.
.
If you read through this entire post then you're one of the real ones & I love and appreciate you. .
Till next time ✌️

I had explained that, all week I had been watching people walk, & telling my brain to tell my body to copy & do it. For the whole 50min walk that should have taken 7min I was trying desperately to copy but failing every time. It's incredible that if you're body doesn't do something for a while you have to literally reprogram it from scratch.
So Nat & I went through our compiled list of excersises, that are devised to regain my strength in my hamstrings & quads which have wasted away from being bed bound for months. The excersise you're watching started from the TRX, with me just trying to stay upright & walking towards a wall with even weight. Then we placed the band around my waist & Nat pulled me slightly so I had to resist her by leaning into my leg. (It was bloody painful!) After a handful of goes I suggested we take it to the track without anything to assist me.
This was the first time I have walked & you can hear at the end of the clip I'm overcome with emotion. Walking has been something I've always taken for granted & now the one thing I desperately want!

If you set your mind to anything, YOU CAN ACHIEVE IT. Now it's time to fight through the pain, as much as I can, & keep smashing goals but listen to my body.
I have one person to be fit for & they're coming in June ❤

I will forever love you, Mr. Magoo. Whenever I lose a family member like you, I always hope that I'm wrong and that there is a heaven, so that way I can see you again.

I would not have finished if there wasn't anyone out there giving me water, drugs, food, or support. I was fine but when the cramps came at me I felt my whole race fall apart. I felt scared; knowing that my goal and race might have been over. My leg is swollen but I am glad I didn't pull anything and for the guy that gave me IcyHot. If it where not for him and the people who gave things away, I probably would have not made it.
2) Much hype in the begginning. I saw the Mayor :D They always play the "I love LA" song so, I was glad to hear it.
3) The boys that have done this with me since my trees roots. Erick (@speedy_gonzalez_cx) was there too.
4) Once the cramps forced me to walk, I noticed I just wanted to finish. I helped many runners along the way by giving them some of the IcyHot I got from the male that helped me out. He saved many people this day. I approached people who I saw struggling and gave them some of my magic to help them keep going.
5 & 6) Just starting to finish so I pulled out my phone. A guy in front of me starts to cramp and I help him. You can hear him grunt as his muscles pull he feels the pain. I left him super close to the finish line so he was all right. "I'm not gonna leave you" is what I said but I lied :( He only had to run for some seconds to be finished so I guess he wasn't left too bad. It was a coincidence that clip was captured; I have made a memory.
I didint get my goal time but I did finally beat my personal record after 3 years. Cramps are scary, running sucks, running is great. WILL DO AGAIN. Thank you @studentsrunla for this sublime opportunity that impacts lives forever. This was my 4th Marathon and the 2017 @lamarathon

My Soul ~ | He is my other eyes that can see above the clouds, my other ears that hear above the winds. He is the part of me that can reach out into the sea. He has told me a thousand times over that I am his reason for being, by the way he rests against my leg, by the way he thumps his tail at my smallest smile, by the way he shows his hurt when I leave without taking him. (I think it makes him sick with worry when he is not along to take care for me.) When I am wrong, he is delighted to forgive. When I am angry, he clowns to make me smile. When I am happy, he is joy unbounded. When I am a fool, he ignores it. When I succeed, he brags. Without him, I am only another girl. With him, I am all-powerful. He is loyalty itself. He has taught me the meaning of devotion. With him, I know a secret comfort and a private peace. He has brought me understanding where before I was ignorant. His head on my knee can heal my human hurts. His presence by my side is protection against my fears of dark and unknown things. He has promised to wait for me... whenever... wherever - in case I need him. And I expect I will - as I always have.Nobody can understand what we talk but we share our happiness .. our pain ..We Communicate :').. He is just my soul .. He is my *Oreo*.. and I promise to be with him forever :) I love him hell much :')

Tomorrow morning, inshaAllah, I will undergo 4-5 hours of surgical reconstruction of my right knee joint in Switzerland. Will be a long journey to recovery and I kindly request that you keep me in your sincere prayers.
God says in the Qur'an that all of creation is 'in pairs' - male and female, heaven and earth, body and soul, young and old, day and night, right and wrong, light and dark, apparent and hidden... life... and.. death. The presence of one necessitates the presence of the other. Just as we have feelings of joy and bliss, periods of expansion, so too must we have feelings of pain and sadness, periods of contraction. Duality is the nature of existence. To resist the inevitable swing of life's pendulum is futile, to embrace it is to walk the well-trodden path of the wise.

We often find ourselves wondering if we're on the right track, if we are where we are supposed to be in our lives, in our selves and in the choices we make. As physically painful, mentally challenging and emotionally frustrating this experience has been thus far (and I'm just at the beginning of it) I cannot but be grateful for God's firm push down this path for me. There is always a higher wisdom in the ways our lives unfold and I'm learning to see with new eyes; to see God's Mercy, Wisdom and Beauty in the highs and lows of our lives. The duality of creation points towards the Oneness of the Creator.

Ibn Ata'illah said: "Sometimes God makes you learn in the dark night of contraction that what you could never learn in the radiant day of expansion - You do not know which of them is richer for you in benefit”
I pray that I'm able to maximise the benefit from this injury and period of rehabilitation. I've already been inundated with messages, outpourings of love and prayers and I'm ever grateful for the dozens of visitors from friends I've only met this week but already consider family.
Finally, a special thanks to my dearest Nadia, a woman whose capacity for love continues to be an unrelenting source of solace and serenity to my heart and soul.

Alhumdolillah in

For anyone who knows my dad, many have probably not seen him very active in recent days. The marathon running, softball playing, fish slaying freediver has been far from himself recently. .
In this past year, my dad has struggled with debilitating back and leg pain. He was recently diagnosed with a 2 inch long Tumor embedded in his Spinal Cord.
.
Earlier this week my parents learned of Neuro Spine Surgeon and Specialist Dr. Patrick Johnson of Cedar Sinai Hospital in California. They spoke to Dr. Johnson over the phone and it didn't take long for him to fast track a Surgical Procedure to remove my Dad’s tumor.
.
The stars have lined up for us this far and we are glad to report the success of the tumor removal. We are so overwhelmed by all the love everyone has shown us. Please keep my Dad in your thoughts and prayers  for a speedy recovery. We are beyond grateful for his successful procedure and are looking forward to seeing his progress in days to come.
- - -
We are asking for any kind of support during this time, as the procedure and medical diagnosis has cost us over $25,000 out of pocket thus far. John is also not expected to be back to work for a while.
.
Thank you all for taking the time to follow up on John’s recovery. We love you all and look forward to seeing you soon.
Mahalo nui loa and Aloha,
The John Delima ‘Ohana

I needed some time to gather thoughts.. 💭
It’s been two weeks since my surgery. The hardest two weeks of my life I would say. I’ve been bedside since they found a blood clot (DVT) in my leg which can be very painful when I move around. I’ve been on blood thinners for over a week now but it can take a couple of months for DVT to dissolve.
Here is what I need to share with you the most:
Ive never hit rock bottom mentally and physically like this before. With a torn quadriceps and biceps (again) many of you would think it’s game over. That there is no chance I could comeback from this. That is my biggest fear. If I believe that I can’t beat this, I’m finished.
Self doubt is the worst thing that can happen to anyone with a dream!! .
>> Doubt Kills More Dreams Then Fear Ever Will <<
I have to mentally block myself every time I think “I can’t” I have to tell myself “I will”. The demons of doubt waged a war against my will to fight back, to be stronger then before. I won’t lie I was 50/50 there for a while. I felt every emotion possible (scared, nervous, anxiety, self-doubt) and probably a few more I didn’t know i had. But, all it took were positive thoughts and positive people to help me believe in myself and set me back on the right track. .
👇👇👇
So, from the bottom of my heart, thank you all so much for the endless support and love. I am very grateful God has blessed me with loyal friends and followers reaching out to help and check in on me at my lowest and my supportive IG family sending me encouraging messages, emails daily— I become overwhelmed and shy because of your heartfelt kindness, I don’t know which words to use to describe how much it truly means to me. You fill me with hope where others have left me in despair. .

I want you to know these 2 things:
1. that I will not give up on my goals or ambitions. I’m going to fight to overcome each obstacle in my path. I will become stronger then before. I will share my struggles and pain with you. 🔧
2. that I am extremely grateful for each and every one of you that have shown me support. I love you guys and I won’t forget your kindness 🙏🏼❤️

We then returned to Australia🇦🇺 not knowing it would be my last semester at Hillsong College. (Juan took his first Greek class for his theology degree and crushed it btw👏🏼.) Shortly after I suffered an excruciating back injury & the worst physical pain I ever experienced. But weeks later, I received miraculous healing, witnessing my spine straighten, my hips realign and my leg lengthen before my very eyes to equal out the other! Thank you Jesus.🙌🏼 During that time, I also received a letter in the mail offering me a significant scholarship to one of the world’s top international business schools.🎓 Juan encouraged me to go for it even though it meant our carefully planned-out future would get turned on its head. (Ha! God’s plans > our plans. Always.) I got accepted in June & left Sydney two weeks later to start my masters degree back in good ol’ USA🇺🇸. It’s now the end of the year; I finished my first semester of grad school & found home at Hillsong Phoenix. (Which did not exist before I moved to the other side of the world!) God is so faithful.
I never thought I could appreciate my hometown so much.🌵☀️ I’ve grown immeasurably and went through one test of obedience after another.. but if you’re not stretching, you’re not growing! So here’s looking forward to 2018, which will inevitably bring more stretching, require more obedience but definitely offer more grace, courage and love to walk out God’s beautiful adventure planned ahead for us. (Even if we have no idea what that looks like right now. All I know is we refuse to live a mediocre life when God has done SO much to give us abundant life!)✨Cheers to a new year & hopefully seeing my love soon!! ❤️ #ourbestdaysareahead 💫😍

I had to say goodbye to one of my best friends today, and it was the hardest thing I think I've ever done. He was made just for us, born on Amanda's birthday, and born in heaven on my own. You've made such a huge impact on me in these short years, Jackson, and I can't fathom why we had so little time together. It's all in God's plan, and I know you're happier now. You've taught me so much. How to love. How to care for something (even when I didn't even want to care for myself). You showed me relentless love when I needed it most. And you were always so excited to see us. I'm so proud of you for all you've done in your time here, most proud of the last day when you stood up and walked to the door to greet us with one lame leg and cancer spreading to your lungs. You could barely stand but still you got up to say hello and that you missed us and were glad to have us back, and as much as my heart broke to see you wobbling towards us, I'm so proud to have had the chance to call you my dog. I love you, buddy. I'm grateful for the support you showed my family during the hardest times of our lives, and I'm thrilled that you're out of pain and back home.
I wish this wasn't the birthday post I had to make, but I hope you're celebrating enough for the both of us.
RIP Jackson, January 14, 2014 - October 7, 2017

So happy that my Ashtanga practice is coming back to me, slowly but surely. It has been tough to allow my body to take it easy for so long, not pushing it in any way. However, grateful for my practice, especially it’s lesson on patience and proud that I have not given up. Right before my back pain trouble started I was working on leg behind the head poses, so I hope to get back into being there again soon. But no rush, the most important is not the asana it self, but the actual process. Would love to hear what yoga pose you’re trying to work on right now, comment below 💙

THERE IS NO PERFECT SPOT to be found because even though every inch of Joshua tree is gorgeous, there was 25mph winds and everything was getting blown away, including me & it was freezing ( yes I checked the weather & that motherfucker lied to me) 😩 The entire day was memorable af and we really won’t ever forget it 💕 Because I almost lost a leg & my husband, because I know he was ready to just leave me there of how bratty and ass-hol-e I was acting 😂 & well Mother Nature was probably also sick of me talking shit it tried to take me out, hence the door slamming on my leg with 25mph winds 🙄 No matter the struggle & no matter the pain, we always have a story we could laugh at & Zoë will have a life full of adventures, and they will always be worth it, and they will always be memorable, as long as we are together 💗👨‍👩‍👧 #ZoësBloomingFirstBirthday #ZoëTatiana #ZeeBear🐻💗 #CakeSmash #Cake #Glitter #FirstBirthday #photoshoot #JoshuaTree #Beautiful #Adventure #Explore #Live #Laugh #Love #Blessed #memories #realtalk

Force transmission and energy leaks. You get hurt when you can’t control external force
___
If ya still can’t picture the arm to opposite ass connection envision starting a lawn mower. Better yet, mimic the motion and you’ll feel it. Position yourself for optimal pulling power. 😂 Ass to arm
___
The more force you want the more you engage the glute. Unless it’s an inhibited glute. Then your nervous system default switches to pulling more with the arm as opposed to pushing into the hip and rotating in the torso. Arm gets pissed off from doing more of the work. Pissed means pain!

TRY THIS:🦄 🧚‍♀️ Massage your painful arm and then do an opposite side single leg supine hip bridge 10 times. Then do the non-painful side (arm and leg). Is there a difference from side to side. If this causative relationship exists you will notice it.

💜 SMITH FROG KICKS - I use a mini loop band to keep the hook from locking during the exercises. The key here is to NOT kick too high but to go down low. Always keep your hips touching the bench. 4 sets of 12 reps.
💜 KNEELING HIP PUSH - gotta love how this one looks lol. It’s normal to feel it in your quads, but don’t worry - your glutes still does most of the job! 3 sets of 15 reps.
💜 SINGLE LEG GLUTE BRIDGE - About as much glute isolation you can get. By having your foot elevated and your butt close to it you’ll get most movement in your hip joint! 3 sets of 15 reps/leg
💜 KICKBACKS IN LEG EXTENSION - one of my absolute favorite when it comes to kickbacks! So much heavier than what meets the eye. Don’t kick too high here either to avoid back pain. 3 sets of 10 reps/leg
💜 SINGLE LEG LIFTS - place your foot in line under your hip with your toes pointing just slightly out to the side. Kick the non working leg back (can be bent) and come up again and squeeze. 4 sets of 10reps/leg -

I did this 2 days ago and I’m still sore in my peach lol 😆🙏 Best feelz! Use these exercises as one full workout!

Today marks one year since my most intensive knee surgery. 2/3 surgeries. A lot has happened in the past year. I’ve battled a nerve disease, got 7 nerve blocks, took 2,600 pills in 4 months, got another knee surgery, had a pump that went directly into my hip to numb my whole leg. I’ve been in physical therapy for one year. It’s been 11 years since my knee issues have started. 11 years of no running, no sports, no high heels, having to be careful stepping off curbs and on uneven ground. But I had a great care team and I am so thankful to everyone involved in helping me get better.

Maybe you see me, the not so shabby looking guy with his left leg propped up on a rock. For the most part, the smile on his face may convey some sort of happiness. Maybe you even see some contentment in his smile, conveying that life is pretty awesome for this guy. Truthfully, there are days when it feels like it is. Let me tell you what you might not see. You might not see the worry—worry that our parents get older as we get older. You might not see that I sometimes get scared of the reality that my parents may not always be around. You might not see the pain in my eyes. The truth is it’s painful to NOT wake up in the same household as my kids as I once did before, and most likely took for granted when I did. You might not see how tired I am. Tired of driving 840 miles in a weekend to see my kids for a day. I’m tired of not living up to my potential, tired of seeing the people I love most in pain. I’m tired of saying, “When do we get a break?” Frankly, I’m tired of being tired. The picture might not relay to you that I sometimes feel lost and unsure of my purpose in life. Now, how would you know all of this about me just by looking at this picture? The fact of the matter is you wouldn’t. You see, this picture is just a pocket-sized fraction of who I am and what I feel and deal with on a day-to-day basis. We post what we want people to see. We don’t want people to see we struggle or that we don’t have our shit together. We don’t wan’t people to see we feel pain. We don’t want people to see that we sometimes feel lost in a world that favors pretending we don’t feel lost sometimes. We don’t want to be seen as complainers. I get it. The TRUTH for me, however, is that those not so yummy parts of ourselves are what makes us bad ass. It is what makes us beautiful human beings. It is a part of the awe-inspiring WHOLE you and I. It is REAL and should be honored. Today, I am grateful I woke up with a little bravery and the courage to share a larger picture of myself. We are more than the pictures we share with one another. I suppose I just don’t want us to forget that.

Grateful for it all,
James

My beautiful Gumbo was euthanized today and became a furry angel. 🌈 We woke up this morning to find him squirming and crying out in pain. He was panting very hard and dragging his hind legs behind him. He looked to be in pain and very uncomfortable. Immediately, Gumbo was taken to the vet, where x-rays and blood work was done. The hope was that it was just a fractured bone. It turns out Gumbo had Saddle Thrombus (aortic thromboembolism) which is a very serious and painful medical condition. The disease comes unexpected and without warning. Yesterday Gumbo was perfectly fine and acting like his normal self. It all changed this morning. In the disease, a blood clot is formed in the heart. A piece of the clot comes out and gets stuck. In most cases, it’s near the back legs. The legs become almost paralyzed and because the leg is without blood circulation, the pads of the feet turn blue. Although there was an option to amputate the leg, the problem would not have been fixed. There is no cure and most cats that have their leg amputated, don’t survive and the rare that do are still in constant pain. The blood clot is still in the heart. We made the decision to euthanize Gumbo and end his suffering. Gumbo got a shot for pain and we brought him back to the house for his last few hours. We gave him a lot of love. He was brought back to the vet where he parted for the rainbow bridge. 🌈
.
Our family is devastated at the loss of another fur baby. Gumbo was such a sweetheart. He loved having his belly rubbed and his favorite thing in the world was drinking water out of the faucet or bath tub. He would meow and meow incessantly until someone would answer his demand and turn the water on. He was the only cat that was okay with me putting silly hats on his head for photo shoots. Gumbo was so mellow and sweet and always got along with the other kitties and even Toby. He was obsessed with chicken and would do anything to get a slice. Gumbo was only 6 six years old but had so much love in his life. We were so lucky to adopt him. We love you Gumbo. You’ll always be in our heart. ❤️

First of all - so much love to all of you who reached out in the comments, dms, texts and phone calls and who offered help in different ways when I was in the hospital 🙏 It might seem pretty insignificant but meant SO much to me during the time I was trasported between different departments in the hospital and felt very alone and small. Also thankful for those people who helped me - the 911 operator, the wonderful ambulance helicopter staff that came quickly and the boatsmen who walked around the island in search of me 💙

MY INJURY STORY

What happened was that it was a beautiful autum day and I went out on the cliffs where I’ve walked and climbed thousands of times before. But all off a sudden the leg disappeared under me, I had stepped on a rock that was wet from a wave - and super slippery. I fell. It hurt like hell and when I looked down I got a chock...I could see the left leg went in two different directions and I thought the bone shaft was broken in two and it was sticking out under my leggings. Immediately I called 911 who sent out a ambulance helicopter. The pain came in waves and was sometimes overbearing. I couldn’t move an inch and my upper body had landed in a puddle so I had to hold myself up from the water with my left arm, and they were worried I might faint and drown. So when the Stockholm helicopter couldn’t get to me fast enough the ambulance helicopter from Gotland changed their planned activities and came to get me too.

After 30 minutes I could hear the first helicopter coming but they didn’t see me and passed over me 3 times before they found me. When I saw them finally approaching and dropping off a doctor on the cliff next to mine I started to cry of relief.

At the same time the boatsmen had found me and one was holding up my head and upper body from the water while the doctor gave me all sorts of good stuff 🤪

After that I don’t remember anything but apparently I had screamed the worst they had ever heard when they adjusted my kneecap that had come loose and was placed beside the leg (that was the thing I had seen sticking out from the leg). [STORY CONTINUES IN THE COMMENT SECTION, and there are more photage in my Stories archive]

I've had a difficult recovery, and by all reports, have permanent nerve damage in one leg. The physical aspect feels like a curse some days, but from a teaching perspective, it's been a #blessing.
_
I get to HELP people with bodies that don't function optimally, but who NEED what #yoga has to offer. I understand joints that don't have full mobility and need to modify. When I'm in pain due to weather, so are many of my students.
_
I love being able to identify with my students in a way that not everyone can, and being able to create classes that both benefit their bodies and keep them safe.
_
What an incredible year of learning and growing, with so much more to come. I may be a teacher, but I will always be a student. I am #thankful. ❤

Proud daughter moment here!!! Mama kept telling us that they will just chill in Sagada because she can no longer walk long distances without getting leg pain. I saw how papa kept encouraging her and pushing her that she can do it slowly. Both of them were able to finish the 1 hour uphill to the peak and 2 hours downhill to Blue Soil. They just needed ibuprofen and efficascent oil right after haha 😂

I wish I can be like you when I grow older. Thank you for doing everything for us. You are our inspiration mama and papa.

I love you so much. To more adventures together 🍃

Simply because my lower back was flaring up.

Don’t be afraid to swap movements out no matter how much you love them. I’ll admit, In the past I’ve always been married to certain exercises. But if it’s causing pain or discomfort you need to reevaluate your training programme.

I’ve never hack squatted before but mannnnn did I enjoy these! They just moved so smoothly, I’m already excited to do it all again next week.

The foundation has been set for this movement. Now it’s time to work at it!

On Friday the 13th, I went in for surgery nervous about not the actual surgery itself, but the recovery time! Lo and behold, they only had to remove that 13mm wide floating cartilage (I’ve carried for 12 years!) BECAUSE my ACL was not completely torn!!! The long story short of it, the ACL is still intact, but basically holding on by a thread (frayed)! And I am already bearing weight on my leg! My pain level is a 1 - Nominal almost non-existent!
The procedure took an hour and aside from the nausea I felt for a few hours after, everything went great! 🙏😍 Now it’s time for physical therapy; this is a great motivator for me to consider doing more strength training to protect what I have left! May have to get Katherine and Mimi’s consultation time to discuss my entry into a bodybuilding contest next summer! 😉

God is good! And thanks for your thoughts and prayers! Knee is FIXED! Oh and the floating cartilage piece, I asked to keep it! I’ll share a pic in the comments below if you really want to see it!!! 😬🤪 thanks to Mike and Diane for being there when I woke after the anesthia started to wear off! And I’m super happy because Uncle Lamar is here in Montana to visit! Plus it’s Bebe’s birthday Saturday, July 14th!!! She’s 9!
Love to all!!!

She passed away exactly three weeks ago, exactly two months after her diagnosis on International Women's Day, (same day my Pantherpuff design was shared a lot). She worked at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) for 10 years, always smiling. She greeted patrons with her warm smile despite suffering leg pain and working on weekends 'til 7 or 8pm even on holiday breaks. The museum nor agency didn't send any flowers to the funeral but so many of the gallery attendants went right after evening work to extend their condolences. Thank you to my mom's coworkers for everything.

Most of my followers are art lovers so I hope if any one of you drop by LACMA, just a simple smile or greeting to the gallery attendants could make their day. I worked there as an attendant myself when I was 19 so I know those kind simple gestures mean a lot to make it through the day. Most of them are kind and hardworking ladies that are mothers and grandmothers like my Mom and I just wish them the best.

Thank you for everything Ma. We love you. 👸🏻💐💡🙏⛪️ #rip #mama #iloveyou #museum #lacma #lacmaplusyou #urbanlights

It was the most beautiful sight my eyes had ever seen. The afterlife returned your youthful appearance. Approaching me wasn't a woman in her 80s, beaten from years of emotional and physical pain. No, approaching me was a lady in her 30s with long, flowing hair, a wide, glistening smile, and bright, vibrant eyes. Your aura, alone, extinguished my previous paranoia. Yet, I was frozen with ice-cold tears streaming down my face as if you infused my soul with an effervescent fountain of love. Each drop rolled down my cheek, onto my chest, and evaporated into my heart. I was gobsmacked.
Your hand opened as you sat on the edge of the bed. Slowly, with loving grace, you reached for my leg. Without saying a word, you told me not to worry, everything was going to be alright. I blinked to put the moment in focus, then you were gone.
That night was the most restful sleep I experienced in weeks. That night, the part of you I loved the most, the ability to love without bounds, became part of me. That night, I knew what it felt like to be touched by an angel.

I know you're resting with God, Grandma! I love you and miss you, every, single day! Happy 100th Birthday! Kiss Pop for me ❤️😇

Look at that posture! 🤕 Let's get you up to speed a little, shall we?
So I started my fitness journey back in 2013 and had a 40lb transformation.. I fell in love with training and pushing myself to limits I thought were only in my dreams. •
Then I got injured in June 2016 (I kicked a fucking wall, it was a total accident just swinging my leg back and forth not paying attention.... lovely 😖) I brushed it off thinking it was just a broken toe or something minor, man was I wrong! Since then I had been dealing with pain and would be uncomfortable sitting, standing, walking, anything really... It was all I could think about. My mindset started to shift from Positive Patty to Negative Nancy pretty quickly. I couldn't perform my routine workouts anymore or train my clients properly due to my limitations so I went to see a doctor to get XRays told me it wasn't broken, take these meds and if the pain continues come back.... (Yeah, thanks for the help.. not!) •
August 2017 I went to a foot doctor who put me in a boot/cruches for about a month. After pushing through the pain and still trying to maintain my physique I ended up with a hip imbalance and lost a lot of core/leg strength. I didn't know where to start and had to completely rebuild.

November 2017 I finally went to see @iostrengthperformance and after 12weeks of physical therapy you see where I am at as of January. I have been continuing to build strength slowly but surely getting back to my old routine. I have learned so much through this process and cannot wait to continue to build and grow my knowledge around corrective exercises. So I can also pass on that knowledge to my clientele as well. 🤗
If you read all that thank you 😙

@iostrengthperformance will be at our Love Yourself Saturday, February 24th from 11am-1230pm, so come join us, I can't stress the importance of this event. Pay attention to your body, it has a lot to say if you listen. Nikki Kanter Esthetician will also be out here talking about proper skincare/effective products to use. You will all benefit in more ways than one by attending, I promise. @genesis_fitness_training DM for details 💪

Who doesn’t like a good front and back comparison hey. The right leg is also swollen slightly.
Still early to say exactly what the outcome of this and recovery times will be, still the chance of surgery depending on how the next few days go.
The internal bleeding is forced by gravity to its low point and being sat or laid most of the time, that’s the back of my thigh.
Ironically not much pain there, just soreness, it’s all at the front and side. Feels tight as a balloon and very painful to the touch.
I can stand on the leg if hip and knee locked but any use of that front muscle results in collapse of my leg and sheer pain across the whole area.
Incredible to believe we walked (hobbled with the support of my buddies) 1.5hours down from the incident and I then drive home to Harrogate. Adrenaline, pain killers, sugar and caffeine are a potent combination.
Fingers crossed for the weekend and some more recovery.

THANK YOU all for your messages of support and offers of help, each and every one has helped in ways you’ll never know.
I intend to chart my recovery on here for my own record and for others that may suffer similar & search the #tags, apologies if you don’t want to see and I fully understand if you unfollow.

THANK YOU to my loving wife and nurse @angiedavidson39 without whom I’d be no where near this stage and looking forward. Love you 💖 .

🏐 bloody over leg injuries 🏐

In 2013 I got diagnosed with Popliteal Artery Entrapment Syndrome. My calf is too over developed and blocks off the artery that services my lower leg, making it bloody difficult to walk, run and jump without intense pain. I would wake up in the middle of the night screaming in pain. I would cry post game and just assumed I was a bit of a wuss. The same year I tore my ACL. I have worked bloody hard to get back to the game I love so much since. I have literally spent $1000s of dollars on specialists, scans, physios, skins, strapping tape, you name it, I've tried it.
I am so happy to get on the court again last week. I limped off court Saturday with tears of joy. My right leg was completely numb for 2 hours following the game. I have done everything possible to ensure I'm right to play. In the past 6 months alone I have had a twisted tibia, MCL strain, crushed minuscus/cartlidge, Achilles tendonitis and now a soleus strain for the umpteenth time in my life. I am bloody over it. I literally am doing everything I am supposed to do and still getting injured.
I have never been a natural sportswoman, I was the most unco child but I worked hard. I've read books, watched plays over and over, filmed my own shooting style to critique my technique. I love the game and love the fight. Nothing beats the feeling of coming off the court after a a great team game. I love the friendship that comes from netty. And everytime I'm injured I feel like I've let my team mates down.
I love the game... the game just doesn't love me.
Feeling a bit sore and sorry for myself today, above all, bloody frustrated.

Life is really freaking good right now. I felt almost on the verge of tears tonight after I finished my leg session. Not because of pain (I did throw up in my mouth a little because #mommadidntraisenobitch )but because for the first time in so freaking long I felt I was able to push my body to a new level. Blood was pumping, sweat dripping, endorphins going nuts. THAT is the feeling of why I fell in love with this.
Ahh my heart is overflowing with how excited I am for this next chapter.

I can still remember feeling excited and confused at the same time because I've always wanted a dog since I was little but my mom wouldn't allow it. I can still remember feeling so happy, smiling literally from ear to ear, when he finally said "Well, we got one!". I got to see him the next day at my dad's office. He was inside a box and I remember looking down at him and him looking up at me with his big goofy ears (Unfortunately, his ears were cropped when he was older.. Wasn't my decision 😔). I immediately brought him home and that was the beginning of our story.
.
I wasn't always there for him though because I moved abroad for school but I always visited him and brought him treats whenever I could. He was such a sweet boy. He loved playing with my hamsters, with my nanny's cats and he absolutely loved humping my leg 🙈 Also, instead of peeing like any other dog would when it gets excited, he would poop..a lot 😂 He was just pawfect!
.
Today, I decided to finally lay him to rest. He was such a fighter. He fought till the end despite how bad he was probably feeling. I did everything I could but sadly, the meds were just not working for him anymore and it would only go downhill for him. It hurts to let him go but I know that he is now at peace, probably being bossed around by Eevee over the rainbow bridge 🌈🤦🏻‍♀️
.
To my Max, I hope you know how much I loved you. You taught me so much. How to love, how to care, how to let go. We fought a good fight, buddy. You were so brave but it's now time for you to rest. We will see each other again. No more pain. Eat lots of treats over the rainbow bridge! Run free, my baby. I miss you already 😢💔♥️
.
Thank you so much to everyone who messaged me and asked about Max. Some of you never even have met me nor Max and yet you cared so much. From the bottom of my heart, thank you! I couldn't have gone through this without you. ♥

I’m a book nerd deep down, so got some great graphic novels from my folks. I love the old black & white Turtles comics. I’m glad Christmas is over since I work retail. It’s been a rough season and my body feels the pain. My leg I broke years ago is all swollen today from pushing myself too hard the past few days. I haven’t move far from my chair today. Beer & playing the new Red Dead Redemption has helped though. Lol. Glad it’s over. So which country doesn’t celebrate Christmas? I’ll be there next year. #christmas #christmas2018 #christmaspresents #tmnt #tmntcomics #dbz #dragonball #dragonballz #goku #gundam #mobilesuitgundam #anime #manga #books #book #bookstagram #booknerd #amazon

Its been 4 weeks since this little boy came into my life. So far with Chiyo's help: -my insomnia has gone from 3-4 sleepless nights per week, to zero. -the amount of pain medications I take has gone from 5 days a week, to 1-2.
-some days I could not get out of bed until 4pm due to the pain and fatigue. But these past weeks, I consistently have been waking up naturally on my own at 7:30 am, getting 8-9 hours of sleep per night. Its been over 10 years since I was last able to say this.
For those of you who don't already know, I take nerve receptor inhibitors alternating with opioids
to manage chronic pain from my peripheral neuropathy and multitude of spinal conditions & injuries. Chiyo alerts me to the optimal time to take them so that instead of trying to fight symptoms already in progress, I'm able to prevent the full scale pain of the episodes by taking the medication before symptoms start. Chiyo is able to detect a change in my serotonin levels, and alerts me about 2 hours before a neuropathic attack by putting his paw on my leg or laying himself on the area about to experience symptoms. I did not teach him to do this, he started doing this all on his own 4 days after I brought him home with me. I caught on when he quickly trained ME that he could feel my pain was about to strike.

After 10 years of doctors, surgeries, therapies, drugs, and sleeplessness, my service dog has given me the second chance I was starting to think I wouldn't get. ...and the condo manager had the nerve to say to me that she "couldnt see how this was going to help me" when she met him yesterday.
HA.

Just wait til he starts his retrieval tasks! Chiyo, how can I ever thank you? I hope endless kisses and treats will be enough ❤️ I love you so much baby, you're saving my life.

I finally accomplished a little dream that I set when I first entered U: 10km>21km>42km.
To be honest, I didn't train well due to the busy schedule. So for this marathon, more than 70% I guess I use my mental to run. It's a powerful part about human brain, when you really want to run without thinking of giving up, with the meaning you attached, your brain will control your whole body. At that time, I can't feel any leg pain, only a little soreness.
Also, need to thanks God, He knows I'm not the type of person who can do it alone, so He keeps off my song that I played through earphone that hope it can keeps me from moving on. The song keep off no matter I pressed on for so many times and put into my hand pouch. I prayed hard and said: "Song you off, I got nothing to rely on, only You, please do whatever you want to keep me moving and complete the run." After that, suddenly this friend Kuan Shyang appeared! And we decided to run together. We kept set target and run together. Push each other so we really keep going. The questions that I kept asking him: "Can you see the balloon? Now what's the target? I can't see any sign, I just follow you ah..." Under the heavy rain, thunderstorms and lightning, with the childhood memory playing with rain, we still create our own fun. Really thanks him, it's definitely a best experience and memory for me to end this year. It's also my last long run, no next time 😂

Side track: (1) An uncle keep help me see "longkang" when I'm running, scare i didn't see it. He kept see me and pointed it to me when he passed through it. Feel a great "father heart" in him. So warm. (2) I only did 35km. At the end the organiser decided to cancel the run due to the rain. Haizzz. Whatever, I did my very best🤷🏼‍♀️And so happy that I manage to get my finisher T and the medal!

You wouldn't believe my right leg was unfit here (It was hanging in this picture) but God has been so merciful to me. When I got involved in the accident, I couldn't stand for the first few minutes( Jesus!! my heart flew to Yankee with first class). My mum was tearing up whilst looking at me (in her head my leg don damage). My left hand was badly bruised and it got swollen the next day (healed after 16days. I didn't use my left hand for 16days). I finally stood up with my left leg praying in my head. Instead of walking, I was LIMPING(It wasn't easy mehn!) But I'll tell myself whenever the pain was much "Precious you're alive". After a month and some days, I started walking (the pains were still there though). But I didn't care much about the pains, I was just very grateful. Sometimes I'll look at the scar on my right leg and whisper THANK YOU JESUS. I've been through a lot but Hey instead of giving credit to the enemy, I'ld rather THANK GOD. So when next you ask me why I love this GOD, I'll have a new story to tell you from the so many I have.
P.S: it's been a year and 2 months since the accident.

After seeing two general doctors, a physical therapist, a chiropractor, a podiatrist, a rheumatologist, and getting an MRI — nothing has made as big a difference as my massage therapist, Rachel Skinner. She has nearly singlehandedly brought my pain down from a 7 to a 2-3.
Rachel practices Thai massage, which if you’ve never had it before is like the love child of massage, yoga, acupressure, and getting run over by a Zambonie (in a good way). If you suffer from any kind of body pain, or just want the best Thai massage of your life, I can’t recommend her highly enough. You can find her website on her profile, @racheldskinner.
Other leg pain tips: (1) Wear more supportive shoes. Thanks to @amir, I now wear Adidas Ultraboosts, which have changed the game. (2) Try a LESS firm mattress (counterintuitive, I know).

Dang, everytime I post its something deep 😭Wellll, I said I would post about my journey sooo as it continues... last Sunday night 17- 20 sheets of masonite(wood) tumbled down my thighs but hit my right thigh the most. Tuesday was the opening of my second show Annie and I'm in majority of the dances and I also did that show back to back with my leg looking like this lol, that was fun! Wednesday- I was in a good amount of pain, saw the bruise spreading and swelling and didn't do the show. Thursday, the doctor told me it was hematoma-which is a big bruise deep in the tissue & mine will take 4 weeks to fully heal. I'm very very active out here and in order for me to move properly and etc. I have to rest my leg, strengthen my thigh and heat it prior to me being physical. I didn't do the show this night either and it's been rough because I love that stage, I love dancing !!!! I was hurting, broken hearted, frustrated and this injury really opened my eyes. I felt like I had this big opportunity to show what I got and crashed. BUT everything happen for a reason and I'm extremely grateful for everyone out here at OST for lifting me up, encouraging me, seeing the real me, beauty in the midst of my storm and more. Lord knows I love to be by my lonely and now everybody is around me, being comforting and praying which is well needed. I know for sure NOTHING CAN STOP ME WITH GOD ON MY SIDE. I will still make a huge impact on everyone and everything I do. I will remain humble, dedicated and determined on my journey for that no one told me it would be easy. It's always more refreshing when people see and feel my strength because DANG I REALLY AM STRONG in all aspects!  Just thank you God for all this growth, trials and tribs., passion and positivity.

Every word you spoke describing the right hip pain, traveling down the leg, described what I was feeling. I am completely healed! I walk with no limp or pain!

I seen a mate of mine @gagewilliamson_ looking like a shredded god winning his WBFF pro card. I then remembered how fucking good it was to compete! Not to win, not for end limelight but more for the person I would need to become to go from chicken legs hospital bed to stage ready beast. I chose to compete again not to win but more for the journey. I love the process !!! I knew the person I would need to become which is fiercely focused on flawlessly executing on my nutrition and training. I would need to be mentally unstoppable. The first day of my comp prep I did legs with my training partner @senor_molez I kid you not !!! I could even squat fucking the bar and I couldn’t even do 5kg on the leg extension ha ha I spent the first 4 weeks pushing through the scar tissue and squatting 60kg. It was painful and very humbling. The past 14 weeks I trained legs 3 times a week harder than ever before. I literally trained to kill myself every session to get my legs to grow. Before I stepped on stage I had already won through the person I had become.

Thank you all, SO MUCH, for all the texts, calls, love and support I’ve been receiving!! I appreciate Mike and Pat accompanying me here and there are so many here in spirit. 💕 My surgery went super well today and Dr. Mayo is very pleased. They were able to repair my labrum instead of constructing a new one and he did end up making some adjustments to my femoral head and neck to help increase range of motion and prevent an impingement. The pelvic cuts were spot on and went as planned. He said I have incredibly strong bones! 🎉Tonight I can move my leg and foot in all the appropriate directions, indicating that there was no nerve injury. 🙌 I have little to zero pain at this time related to a continuous epidural that will remain in place until Monday. Tomorrow I will hopefully get out of bed. Seems so small, but it’s a goal, and every one counts. The epidural is affecting my left leg as well, so it will need to be adjusted so I can support myself.
I woke up, or started remembering things is probably more like it, to some beautiful sparkling trees and snow in the PACU. I recall staring longingly and peacefully out the window at all the “pretty things”.... I’m not sure the PACU even had a window, but it sure was beautiful to me....should be no surprise since glitter runs through my veins, right?! 🦄🌈💕 I’d rather have pretty hallucinations than bad ones or be sick following anesthesia!
Thank you again, my family and friends, for your love, kindness and support. I truly will never forget it. The folks here at Swedish are lovely, but I sure miss my people! I’ll keep y’all updated! ❤️🎄💕 Cheers to moving forward!! 💪🎄 #periacetabularosteotomy #newhipsarethebesthips #swedishorthopedicinstitute #iliveagoodlife #recovery

😭This one hits home hard you guys! For nearly 2 years I struggled with chronic piriformis syndrome.⁣

🤕Some days my leg would be just fine, and others I would wake up with excruciating pain from my hip down my to my feet. ⁣

💡After I realized, my piriformis was so tight, it was rubbing against my sciatic nerve. I found this move and it helped save my life! ⁣

⏱Make sure you hold this stretch for at least 20 seconds. After be prepared to have a moment. As the pain that’s been holding you back this whole time, in most cases, will be gone. ⁣

🚨Know someone who struggles with sciatic pain or piriformis issues? 🎯Tag them! This could be the stretch they need to get back on their feet! ⁣

AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION
Meet Doug!
Doug. Just plain Doug. And I’m just plain easy to have around. I am a 6 or 7 year old Bulldog of healthy proportions who lives to be scratched and have my tummy rubbed. My butt wiggles out of control at the mere thought of a good rub or scratch.
I was born with a slight deformity to a front leg so it is difficult to use but I get around just fine on the other three legs. I can even get up and down a flight of stairs if I crave the company of my favorite human. The vet says my leg cannot be fixed, taking it off (amputation) will make my other leg take too much of my weight but I am not in pain, and I move pretty fast when I want to!

I love people. All people. I am so very endearing in how much I love people. Especially children people. My foster folks are hoping I will take my house training more seriously and so am I. Sort of hit and miss so far. I am pretty smart so I think I can catch on.

I think I could be a good companion for most types of households, but I do not like cats, they are fun to play with but I also think they don’t understand me, so no home with kitties will work for me! Long walks on the beach are a tad out of reach for me, but taking naps next my person, watching TV with my person, really anything that is relaxing and mellow, well that works for me!!! Hope I can find my forever family some day soon so I can shower all my affection on them. Love, from Doug.

Let me just complete that song. I love this template. I guess I need to beef up my video editing skills. I hope I'll have time to develop the skill next year.

About last night... It was chest & back Monday (nonnegotiable like my Leg day Friday). Had some great pumps. I love these slow gains. When I look in a mirror I still feel like I have a lot of fat and I have made little gains. Looked at some old photos & videos and realised I've lost more fat and gained more muscles than I used to have. I don't think I'm satisfied but I must say I'm happy.
Like my video if you're impressed with my progress 😁

Day 12 of #CrownsandCurves #NamasteNaked it's appropriate to me that today's pose is fish pose. Doing this flow made me explore all the pain and hurt it takes to open my hips enough to lay still while relaxing into my back and butt melting it to the floor so my body can support my lower back naturally without me having to hold tension in my abs or back. I left in the bit with my legs moving so you can see and use the words of this world to explain it. You're looking at me being "double jointed" which the world told me at an early age by saying I stood like I was bow legged. I said my leg hyper extend. Because no one used either term I had previously heard with love and compassion understanding how I walk through the world while exhibiting that characteristic no matter what my body showed them. Now, leaning into my discomfort in my body in the present situation I learned to love the discomfort and loved my body hyper extension and all. That moment of love brought more understanding. The world mislabeled me out a desire to understand me. It spoke in the language of this world, numbers, medicine, sight. When I flip the dialogue based on reading the worlds actions against me in the language of Love. I see it gave me everything I needed to be strong and supple a long time ago. Beating myself up over not practicing Ashtanga the way I think was killing as much as not practicing Catholicism they way I thought I should or not being the smartest and prettiest in classrooms. It's ok. It's all ok. Because someone I just "met" saw me. @lexi.getting.flexi who looks like the complete opposite of my recognized my crown. And gave me one of the best compliments ever. You look like a CEO on a yoga mat. Woman to woman she acknowledge my strength and beauty. Babe all my life the part of me that I hated or denied kinda believed that you looked like the world gave you all the breaks in life I wanted and you could go through life looking like you felt as light as I felt heavy in my skin. Now I know we are probably all fighting the same battle in our heads trying to live in a way that gives us peace. I found peace and comfort in knowing the world loved me.

I am not nearly 70% recovered yet, I can’t add much weight to my leg lifts, but today was a very good day, I thank my friends and family who were there for me and God for allowing me to get to do what I love most. I’ve never been one to back down a good fight, I didn’t through this one either and if you’re going through something similar, neither should you!!! #nevergiveup #roadback #bodybuilding #fitness #fitfam #fitnessmotivation #fitnesslifestyle #gymflow #igfitness #chromesupps #chromesuppsnation #amsworldwide #iamchromesupps #magicpump #crushintensestim #xaa #ifbb #ifbbpro #ifbb212 #ifbbproleague #militarymuscle #airforcemuscle #simsolutions #cementboyz #santastrong #bigrican

Two weeks ago I had the opportunity to represent World Orphans, an organization I traveled down to Haiti with last November (along with 10 other American Ninja Warriors) to set up a permanent Ninja Warrior obstacle course for hundreds of orphaned and vulnerable Haitian kids for a Summer Camp. I was absolutely honored to serve by sharing my story and experience, and helping to raise money at The Big Ticket Festival for this year's Summer Camp doing the same thing! Although this opportunity was very exciting, the other side of the story that you may not know is how I was very nervous about speaking in front of a crowd of 15,000-20,000 people. I've never done anything like this before, but I knew God opened the door for me, so I was going to do it regardless of how I felt. Funny thing is, without any reason whatsoever, I woke up around 4 something in the morning to head to the airport to fly up to Michigan and I couldn't move my leg!! There was so much pain in my knee. I had ACL surgery 2 years prior, and everything has been going well since, but all of a sudden I was in excruciating pain if I bent or activated any part of my knee; but I knew I needed to get the Michigan. In addition to that obstacle, over the previous weeks I spent countless hours praying and creating an outline of what I wanted to share for the 10-12 minutes I had on stage, but I when it came down to rehearsing, I kept falling short after just a few minutes. But at the perfect time, I felt God telling me to not stress out about this, forget about the outline, and to trust Him to be strong where I was weak. I felt like God wanted me to speak from the heart and that honestly terrified me because of the fear of messing up in front of thousands of people. But I felt a peace about trusting God in my most vulnerable state, where the risk is high, and the opportunity for God to move would be even greater! This event was life changing for me and deepened my relationship with the Lord to walk more fearlessly, even in my weakness because just like the Orphans around the world, we are not alone! "For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but gives us power, love and a sound mind." #LiveFearless #GodIsGood

My doctor said I could start experimenting with working a little bit to see what my back’s threshold for standing is. So I’ve been scheduling short appointments here and there. The ache in my back comes back pretty easily it turns out, whereas when I’m not working at all it goes away, but I’ve also mostly been able to stave off the majority of my leg problems, which was the biggest issue and source of serious pain for me. If I want to be able to work, I will likely have to accept a constant low grade pain as a trade off. I figure that’s worth it, as I love work, but I especially love feeling productive and like a contributing member of society. I don’t know how I’ll ever deal with it if I HAVE to stop working, whether for health or retirement or whatever. #rainbowroots #tealhair #beautylaunchpad #behindthechair #modernsalon #americansalon

As most of you may know my mother has been battling one set back after another since 2009. It has been a tough road for her, but never giving up, and always trying to have a positive outlook. But as of recently its just been unbearable for her. She recently had a biopsy on a Peripheral Nerve Sheath Tumor, thankfully benign but now comes with a lot of issues. Since August she's been having left leg pain, then they finally found the cause; a tumor on her nerve, now we are trying to figure out if it should be removed or not. Either keeping it or removing it will cause severe nerve pain, due to where its located.
Recently her doctors switched her medication, and her insurance will not cover it, a whopping 400 for a months supply, how is this even possible???? This pain clinic has been wonderful with guiding her, but this was a really hard hit.
PLEASE -----If you click on this link in my profile you can get a deeper understanding of her history and battle AND what her needs are at this moment.
It is not easy for us to reach out and ask for help, but after all these years we (her family) have come up with no other option. This is not ideal, and we understand everyone has their own battle and life issues, any help is beyond appreciated. Even sending her a little extra love via phone or visit is always wanted/ needed.. To know her is to love her. She is a very sweet, shy, crazy, loving human who deserves a better life... <3

Best friend. You were brought into my life for a reason. I remember the day I first met you at work, & I thought... jee... that girl has a LOT of energy. But that energy that you have, is the energy I need. You complete me. You heal me. You have brought the life back into me. You have been there since day 1 of my crazy rollercoaster of a journey with my health. You are the sister I need. The friend I need. Words cannot describe how thankful I am for you my girl. Maybe one day I will write an entire book about my best friend. I want to thank my best friend for helping me while I have gone through these life changes. I want to thank you for taking care of me. For telling me not to be embarrassed about the weight gain my injury / illness has caused. I want to thank you for shaving my legs when I can’t due to pain. I love you forever. ————————————————————————————
I have developed an illness & developed an injury that is taking over my life. Both my illness & injury are something the eyes cannot see. 1 thing about me is that my left leg is extremely damaged due to nerve and muscle damage. Today was an incredible day. I guess you could call it water therapy? This photo was captured by @christiandevine77 ( my other best friend ) who has also been here for me during this crazy time. during this time I was moving my leg in the water getting used to the movement while @livvcarey held my hand telling me its okay your doing great. Today was an incredible day filled with incredible people.

I asked what the person meant, rather than responding to the comment I got a message this morning that went something like this.... "I didn't want to be rude but your legs are getting too bulky for your body. It's just not very feminine. It wouldn't hurt if you skipped leg day." Cue giant eye roll 🙄 Instead of responding I just deleted their message & BLOCKED them. 5/6 years ago though this comment would of seriously upset me. I was always SO INSECURE about my legs growing up. They were my least favorite part of my body. I wanted them to be smaller, I use to dream of having other girls legs. I just wanted to feel comfortable wearing shorts, skirts and dresses. It wasn't until a couple years into my fitness journey that I realized I was wishing & working for unrealistic goals. That wasn't ever going to be my body type. I decided to OWN my legs, and more importantly love them. They are strong, they get me where I need to be every day and for the first time in my life I felt not only comfortable but CONFIDENT in my shorts, skirts and dresses. Even if trying to find a pair of shorts that fits my waist + quads without rolling up is a pain in the ass now 😂
Even so now I just want to see my quads continue to GROW 😏 So no I will not "go easy on legs" or skip leg day because they don't fit someones expectations for MY BODY. I love these legs, I am damn proud of them.
This is a reminder that our bodies are OUR BODIES. Each is different and unique to ourselves. So instead of wishing we had someone else's body, legs, abs or whateverrrr it may be we just need to focus on loving ourselves and doing what we can to be the healthiest version of you and me ❤️ #SelfLoveAndHighStandards #QuadSquad

I broke my leg in two places tibia and fibula and needed surgery to put it all back together, a rod and half a dozen screws.
I was out in the backcountry on the edge of the ski resort and dropped in from the top of this mountain ridge line amongst all the trees because that’s where the best powder is. I lost control for a split second and slowly cruised into a Japanese cedar tree. At first I didn’t feel a thing but once I tried moving away it was like the tree came alive and bit me. The pain was something that I’ve never experienced, excruciating and my leg was just dangling away held together only by skin and muscle. I managed to release my bindings and get free from my board and into some sort of position. Next thing was to scream for help, out there by myself in a remote part of the mountain no one was around. I was yelling for 20 minutes and in that time my body shut down and I went into shock and shiver. Cold; -10 oh yes. I was faced with death and my life flashed before my eyes. I didn’t want to freeze to death and die out there so I screamed louder until someone finally heard me, a New Zealander a women and her partner found and nursed me until my tour group #minttours and the Japanese ski patrol came to the rescue. Thank you so much. It took 3 hours to get me down the mountain because of where I was situated and my condition was that bad.
I got too cocky and too confident and a little lazy with my turns, I forgot that I was snowboarding in extreme mountain conditions. The thing is that when your out there deep in the Japanese powder havin so much fun it’s pretty easy to do!
I learnt that life can change at any given moment at any given time no matter who you are or what your doing living life somewhere on this planet all it takes is one split second and your dead or seriously injured.
I know that I’ll heal and I’ll get fit again and know that I’ll be back on that ridge line in the Japanese backcountry in the trees chasing that deep pow pow next year once again. I love snowboarding and I love Japan 🇯🇵❤️. ✌️

It has been exactly a year and a day since I woke up and took this picture. I had just had my second ACL construction and micro fracture surgery. A few short hours after taking this photo I was in such bad pain that I wasn't able to stop shaking for hours. The next few weeks consisted of sheer agony and boredom as I limped around on crutches, unable to do anything.
Getting healthy again was one of the hardest things I have ever done in my life. I was 23 years old and was forced to go back to work months too early and literally had to take breaks just walking from the parking lot. I also had to find time despite working 55+ hours constantly on my feet to do physical therapy and then subsequently ice my leg.

I promised myself the day I had the surgery that I would come back and I would play sports again, but I'd be a liar if I said I never doubted myself or faltered along the way. Those who know me well know that there are few things in this world I love more than playing sports and that I am one of the most deeply competitive people you will ever meet. It was that same passion I poured into my rehab.
The point of this post is that today, barely a year removed from surgery, I played actual basketball for the first time! Granted it was just a couple pickup games with my roommate, but I was finally able to actually play and did not have any sort of pain.
It may seem like nothing but this small event meant the world to me because I remember not being able to walk and I remember the searing pain as I went back to work 4 months earlier than the surgeon recommended. Most of all I remember how hard I pushed myself in therapy and all the work I have done on my own

Milestones like this are in my eyes what make it all worth it. This simple accomplishment makes me look back at all the suffering I endured and realize how much I learned from it and how much I appreciate where I am now. Even though I still have a long ways to go to be completely healthy, I now how more confidence than ever that I will make a complete recovery and that I can overcome any adversity thrown my way.

But I cannot tell you how much a part of me this bone tumor has been. 14 years it caused me immense pain, each year growing worse, finally becoming a pain that did not relent for one moment of the day. I can't tell you the affect that had on my character. The fear that it would instill. The years of fighting medi-cal to fund an operation that they did everything to discourage me from getting. Going to doctors all alone all that time. No one but me really knows what i went through. I didn't have but a stitch of hope left. For years getting cut down, but I kept trying.
And I won.
Now as my leg begins to heal I cannot tell you the energy coursing through me. I feel electric. I don't even know what it's gonna be like. I think it's been 27 days since my surgery and I'm already in immensely less pain than I was before. This territory is unknown for me. A life with less pain? What's that like? I guess I'll see... thanks to anyone who heard me complain my whole life. Thanks to my dad for trying to set up a life for me where I am secure. And thanks to lukas for being the only person who could have helped me through this time. This is how it's supposed to be. I love you, everyone. Now music must be made.

Today makes 6 years.
Six years since that dark night I was shot in my knee with a high powered assault rifle in Aurora Colorado in the Batman Theater Shooting. .
It’s crazy to think that six years ago I had a normal left leg...no pain, no scars. It feels so far off and blurry even trying to remember what it feels like to walk, + dance, + do anything + nothing in particular without the everyday battle of chronic pain. I miss that so much. I miss being able to just RUN and be free of hurt.
.
As time passes I am becoming aware that grieving is forever going to be woven into this part of my story, and that’s ok. It’ll hit me differently at different times and hopefully I will continually be healing + growing...but this day will probably always carry a profound heaviness for me.
.

My body is constantly screaming at me + reminding me of all the hard in this world, and I don’t often enough let myself truly sit in the reality of my suffocating pain + limitations. So as hard as it is, and as much as I want to avoid it, I’m doing my best to be brave and feel the heavy. Not only my own story + pain, but also the stories of others here in Chicago who are hurting too.
.

As much as I hate suffering, I can’t deny that it is a gateway to a level of understanding that I could not achieve any other way and increases my ability for compassion and hopefully allows me to comfort others better...not because I know what to say or do, but just because “I know” and sometimes just “knowing” is comforting, at least for me it often is.
.

All of this to say, today is hard, and today is also good and beautiful and God is using and working these hard things to hopefully grow in me beautiful things that I wouldn’t have any other way.
.

So in a crazy way that only makes sense because of the eternal hope we have.....I rejoice in this suffering! It’s through teary eyes, but I’m thankful❤️

New Year, New Leg. #fingerscrossed
The saga continues. In June of 2017 I had revision of my iliac bypass graft. Scar tissue was building up in my stent causing it to close and severely limit blood flow to my leg. In September I began having troubles again and found out the same problem was occurring. So on January 05th, 2018 I had an angioplasty where they basically put a balloon inside my graft/artery to push it open.
The past year has been a physical, emotional and mental roller coaster. I’ve felt strong, courageous, happy and inspired and I’ve felt weak, defeated, depressed and frustrated.
But I stay hopeful. Sometimes there is no explanation why we’re dealt the cards we’ve been given in this life. I could blame, point fingers and seek revenge but that is not in my character. Accept was is. Look for the message in the mess. Heal, learn and grow through the pain. Our experiences shape who we become.
This journey has taught me many things: - listen to your body & your intuition. It will never steer you wrong. - ask a lot of questions
- be your own advocate. Stand up for yourself! Give yourself a voice. Speak your truth.
- appreciate how truly fascinating & incredible the human body is
- love your body unconditionally no matter what size you are, how toned you look or what perceived “flaws” you think you have
- sit with your emotional pain. Feel through it all the way to the other side even if that means crying, screaming, swearing & having a complete meltdown
- slow the f*** down. Quit rushing things. Enjoy a slower pace of life. Being “busy” doesn’t necessarily make you happier or more successful: Make yourself a priority. Quit adding things to your schedule & instead embrace simplicity, rest, relaxation & things that bring you joy. Take time to heal. - surround yourself with people who lift you up, motivate & inspire you, and don’t be afraid to lean on them when you’re feeling vulnerable. - make having fun a priority
- don’t play the victim card, it’s not going to move you forward in a positive direction. you’ll get trapped in mindset of fear, scarcity and limiting beliefs. Instead, take 100% responsibility of your life. Make a choice. 💗

Your not doing single leg exercises that’s why, I try to implement at least 1-2 in all my leg & glute days🍑
These single-leg movements have benefits of reducing injury, reducing spinal compression, reducing knee pain, and improving stability.
They also engage smaller muscles like the abductors, gluteus medius, and quads in ways we can't duplicate training with two legs, very important for balanced growth and development. These are just 3 I love & I will name a few you can do!

¿POR QUÉ ES UNO DE MIS GLUTOS MÁS GRANDES?
No estás haciendo ejercicios de una pierna por eso, intento implementar al menos 1-2 en todos mis días de piernas y glúteos🍑
Estos movimientos de una pierna tienen los beneficios de reducir lesiones, reducir la compresión espinal, reducir el dolor de rodilla y mejorar la estabilidad.
También afectan a los músculos más pequeños, como los abductores, el glúteo medio y los cuádriceps, de forma que no podemos duplicar el entrenamiento con dos piernas, muy importante para un crecimiento y desarrollo equilibrados. Estos son solo 3. Me encantan, nombraré algunos que puedes hacer!

Before the injuries leg day was one of my favorite days, besides the weekend 🤓 with injuries holding you back from performing without pain and cringing every rep it was taking my focus off my training and putting it towards thinking about the pain I’m in, mind to muscle connection was nonexistent ... Before the injuries leg day was one of my favorite days, besides the weekend 🤓 with injuries holding you back from performing without pain and cringing every rep it was taking my focus off my training and putting it towards thinking about the pain I’m in, mind to muscle connection was nonexistent for years. Now that I’m recovering well since my stem cell treatment, leg day has become a favorite again! 💪🤓 Love training in the new @gymaesthetics collection, fabric moves with you, very light and comfortable!
