The UGLY secret of the BEAUTY industry. #raiseawareness
Imagine your dog/cat was taken away from you, so he could be used for your makeup testing. Would you still feel pretty wearing that makeup everyday? Would you still feel pretty after knowing your pet died after going through skin and eye irritation tests where chemicals are rubbed onto the shaved skin and dripped into the eyes, because of your lipstick, shampoo or mascara?
"Animals in laboratories are suffering and dying to test cosmetics. It is estimated that more than 115 million animals worldwide are used in laboratory experiments every year. They have chemicals forced down their throats and dripped into their eyes and onto their shaved skin. Animals are forced to swallow massive amounts of a test chemical to determine the dose that causes death. These tests can cause considerable pain and distress including blindness, swollen eyes, sore bleeding skin, internal bleeding and organ damage, birth defects, convulsions and death. Pain relief is not provided and at the end of a test the animals are killed, normally by asphyxiation, neck-breaking or decapitation." - Humane Society International. That is the ugly secret of the beauty industry. Even though due to medical reasons I'm not allowed to completely cut animal products out of my diet, I consider that none of these animals need to die so we could make ourselves pretty everyday. There is no beauty in tortured animals.
We can still be pretty without makeup in which someone had to leave a life behind.

There's at least 450 alternative methods which can replace tests on animals.
At least 33 animals die in laboratories around the world every second. In Great Britain, one animal dies every 4 seconds.
Does statistic have to be this cruel? 1, 2, 3, 4. 1, 2, 3, 4. What did you feel?

DVT,” said the radiologist. Her matter of fact words hit me like a sledgehammer. I knew enough about pulmonary embolisms, strokes and similar, to know that this was not good news. Worse still, I was out of medical aid hospital cover.

So public healthcare it was. Helen Joseph.
8 days later I was discharged. And every day now, is a step towards full health.

I was entirely the wrong profile for this.
Don’t smoke.
Don’t drink.
Trail running fit.
No recent traumas.
No recent operations.
No recent long haul flights.
No genetic propensity.
No reason.

But life throws “curve balls” at us all, no matter our station in life. And we all deal with these challenges thrown, in our own way.
Never alone. Never on our own. Even though sometimes it may feel like it.

To @TheJoLurie ... thank you for the challenge. The #GramSham gets real.

Looking back on Day 3 of vacay: this was the final day of doing things since Thursday was completely occupied by driving. After feeling like South Carolina had very little to offer us in terms of the beach town we so desired, we decided to drive down to the beach town that we've loved since we were little. We took a detour through Savannah and had a fun (and very cold) time wandering through tall buildings, walking by rivers and weaving through art students before finally arriving in St.Simons Island. it's been 4 or 5 years since we sold the condo we used to have there and since I've been, but barely anything has changed. Some shops are gone but the ones we love are still there, full of their memories and souviners. I dug through the same basket I used to dig through as a child and searched for the perfect little woven friendship bracelet to fasten around my ankle like I had year after year when i was young. We pushed through windy ocean air on the pier and looked down on the waters, wondering what fish might find themselves on those decks later in the day. It all felt so beautifully familiar but also adventurous enough to satisfy my running soul and I loved it.
In present news however I am nursing an extremely sore throat. It's not swollen and I don't feel sick otherwise but I've tried everything and it still feels like I'm swallowing glass so if anyone's got any tips lemme know

And here I thought the most interesting part of our night was going to be the fact that I have strep throat with a fever.😩 But then Rexy boy decided to go and one up me by getting his fingers stuck in a metal bookcase while picking out a book for his dad to read before bed!😱😭 He told us one finger got stuck and then while trying to get it unstuck, he stuck two others!! After almost half an hour of desperately trying every trick we could think of to no avail (while his fingers swelled and turned more purple by the minute), we gave up and called the fire department who came over and rescued Rex. (I shouldn’t say to “no” avail. Jeff was able to get one of the three stuck fingers out. But the other two were impossibly jammed in there.) I’m still shaky as I write this. It’s probably partly the fever, but mostly the nerves and adrenaline and worry that I had. I think Rexy was braver than mommy through the whole ordeal.😥 It took the fire department about another 30 minutes to cut Rex out. I’m so thankful for the good firefighters and paramedics who rushed calmly to our aid. They had an oxygen mask for Rex and I was tempted to ask if I could use it!😲😬 So grateful things weren’t more serious and that Rexy’s two fingers (especially his little pointer finger which took longer to free) are just sore and swollen, but not broken - or worse!🙀

How was it only three days ago that this little miracle was in my belly? I have never dreamt of motherhood or anticipated what having a child would be like. Little did I know my heart would explode into a million bigger pieces the moment I met my moon, my stars, my heart; my Luna. Torn, swollen, stitched, sore, exhausted... none of it matters. I barely feel anything except overwhelming love for my baby girl and her daddy who has been my savior, strength and support incarnate, the past few days. Who is this delicate, gentle, sweet creature in my arms? She’s my baby girl and I am desperately in love with her already.

No more pics of sunny Australia...it’s time to get serious...preparations for 2018 London Marathon are well on there way. This year I’m raising money for the @psoriasisuk (link in bio). Any contribution big or small will mean a lot.
.
Psoriasis is a skin condition that affects 2-3% (1.8 million) of the population. It causes red, flaky, crusty patches of skin covered with silvery scales. These patches normally appear on your elbows, knees, scalp and lower back, but can appear anywhere on your body. Most people are only affected with small patches. In some cases, the patches can be itchy or sore.
.
In 2009 I started developing early stages of psoriasis on my scalp. Even though it was mild, it still affected my self-esteem.
.
Not many people know this but in 2012/2013, I developed psoriatic arthritis in both my hands and feet. Psoriatic arthritis is a form of arthritis affecting the joints in around one in five people with psoriasis. Psoriatic arthritis causes swelling, stiffness, pain, and problems moving the joints. I couldn't physically hold a tennis racket for nearly a year as my left thumb had swollen to double my right, getting out of bed in the morning became difficult, everyday tasks became a challenge, I avoided doing the simplest of things so others wouldn't know. Overtime it has eased off, but for short periods it comes back causing stress and discomfort.
.
In November 2017, I was diagnosed with guttate psoriasis, small dot like lesions that appear all over the upper trunk, back, and legs. Guttate psoriasis usually occurs 2-3 weeks after a throat infection. It had a massive impact on my social life. I hated wearing shorts, I didn't go swimming, I didn't go out because I didn't want people to see my flared up face, I made all kinds of excuses. After using a variety of medicines my psoriasis has slowly disappeared. However, it does have a tendency to return.
.

Wish me luck.

Henry was over 11lbs and face presentation, which meant he wasn’t coming out the birth canal as I had so carefully prepared for.
The recovery was long and painful and honestly I didn’t feel up to exercising until 12 weeks postpartum. My energy levels began to recalibrate (4 hour stretches of sleep felt like vacation), and after seeing a pelvic floor physical therapist, the inflammation and pain at my incision had reduced.

Over the past couple weeks, I’ve seen a few mamas, who have just received the green light from their OBs/midwives to get back to exercise. Many have unfortunately already started back with HIIT/group x classes by the time I see them.
Whether I see them at 6 or 12 or 18 weeks postpartum, we always start with the basics. Can you breathe well? Can you move well? Building on a strong foundation may be the longer road, but it is *always* going to be the direction to a stronger body and to exercise longevity. “The Body Remembers” is a phrase that I always use to describe the return to ‘normal’ exercise for the chaotic, sleep-deprived, and HEALING version of ourselves. >>If you aren’t willing to take the time to ease yourself back into exercise, your body will take the time it needs later on. This might mean injury or exhaustion or a combination of both.<< Your body is wise, so listen to it. Did you miss a whole night’s sleep with your babe? Rest. Are you super sore after a workout? Maybe it was too much. Are your abdominal muscles bulging? Is your c-section ever swollen or painful? These are your signals to rest and maybe even seek help from your local women’s health physical therapist.
Fitness & strength mean much more than working up a heavy sweat and soreness that lasts 3 days. Those things may have their place in your life, but start slow and build from the ground up.

Not sure where to start? Tune in to our Instagram story tonight to see how our mamas begin their postpartum fitness journeys... (**Note: my babe loved being in this @lalabubaby Soothe Shirt 😍 it kept him high above my incision)

"Sage is used for digestive problems, including loss of appetite, gas (flatulence), stomach pain(gastritis), diarrhea, bloating, and heartburn. It is also used for reducing overproduction of perspiration and saliva; and for depression, memory loss, and Alzheimer's disease.

Women use sage for painful menstrual periods, to correct excessive milk flow during nursing, and to reduce hot flashes during menopause.

Sage is applied directly to the skin for cold sores; gum disease (gingivitis); sore mouth, throat or tongue; and swollen, painful nasal passages.

Some people inhale sage for asthma."

This one made me chuckle lol. Sooo annoying when this happens! Sometimes I get patients who come in with a bit of a swollen gum between two teeth. They tend to think it’s an infection as it has come from nowhere and can be quite sore/bleedy. So I always ask if they’ve been eating popcorn, and 8 times out of 10 they laugh and say yes (usually around 2 weeks ago)! The shape of the kernel fits so perfectly and snuggly under the gumline; most times you don’t even know it’s there - until it begins to irritate the gum, causing it to become inflamed and tender...... And this is usually when we hear from you 🤪
Moral of the story: Floss DAILY and THOROUGHLY!

When I got to this place, I had high hopes of meeting you after you-know-how-long. I was anxious, excited, scared and was pretty sure feeling other emotions I cant put words on all at the same time, that's you're effect on me. However, destiny or whatever it was played tricks on us and I guess the stars weren't aligned as it should have been. Guess they are right. If it isnt meant to happen its not going to happen. The butterflies in my stomach took twirls and loops when I have exhausted all potential options for our get-together and it felt like an ice bucket challenge on a winter. Cold and harsh with stinging pain. I felt like I was to blame.
Accepting was not easy but it was bearable thanks to the friends I was with who I am truly greatful for. Who put my spirit down, bullied me for the next two days and made sure to point out every person who look just like you.
Yes, and it started from the mind blowing, jaw dropping world of Atolls. It was uncanny how similar you both look like. I had to que in for a photo just so you-know. Even the ones on the street, they made sure I see! Ampff! Cause that's how they tell me they love me and that they support me. (Should I feel happy? I am not so sure) :) Yes it was sad but like what you said, we still have our adventure, I hope. Fingers crossed until sore and swollen. For now, let's stick to what we know best. :) See you soon!

Do NOT comment and 'choose a favourite photo/ dress' cause I think I would just die of exasperation from that. This post is NOT abt the dress.
Left: in my late teens. Bulimia period.
Middle : in my 20s. Right : in my 30s ( I'm 34)

Shedding a bit of light of my back story. Many of you already know my history with bulimia and binge eating.. but I repeat my story every now and then because of my new followers. Hopefully this will give someone a ray of hope.

At age 14, I discover bulimia. Landed myself in the hospital a few years after because I was sick and tired of living. I had lost all the weight ( from 75kg to 48kg) but I was still deeply depressed. So obviously losing weight and becoming thin wasn't the answer to my depression.
I was overwhelmed with fear of the future and hated myself so much I overdosed on over a 100 pills. My brother happened to skip lecture that day, came home and found me unconscious on the floor.
Next thing I knew, I woke up in the hospital with multiple drips attached to my body.
It was from that moment, my life started to turn around. I refused to see a psychiatrist so I had a church counsellor assigned to me. The beginning of my recovery was hard.. no wait. It was F-ing hard. I still fell back into my old ways of bingeing and then purging. Everytime I try to start afresh, I would screw up and have another episode of binge and purge. Shame taunted me, depression knocked on my door, ready to consume me all over again.
I still remember very clearly on the day I came to the end of myself. I was throwing up again after 2 weeks of being on track. I looked myself in the mirror, my eyes were puffy, cheeks swollen, mouth and throat were sore, knuckles were scratched. I cried and told God, " I give up.. I can't do this anymore. I'm counting on you. If you don't help me, it's over for me." I had completely let go. I stopped trying. I don't even know when it started but slowly and surely, the desire to binge left me. I didn't even notice it and when I did, fear struck me. I was afraid that this was too good to be true. ( to be continued in comment section below)

Despite the fact that I had my left knee injured from a fall and got an allergic reaction after taking the painkillers that causes swollen eyes and difficulty breathing, I am still determined to show up on race day! On the day before the race, I went to the doctor and got some injections to relieve my allergies. Although I still had my swollen eyes on the race day, that didnt make me change my mind to quit and give up, but instead I nailed the full marathon by myself! I was able to conquer all the hilly roads on a super hot weather! ☀️💦
The last 10km, were terribly tough making them the hardest which required considerable mental and physical efforts to make it till the finish line. I knew I had to be cautious to ensure that my body remains healthy although my legs were extremely sore and weak. Many thanks @balimarathon for providing few remaining stations to keep cool and hydrated. With the little water available I tried to keep wetting my head and my neck’s back.
You can see me sprinting all the way towards the finish line and I got 42.5 km in total on my Garmin!
So now I’m officially a marathoner! 🏅
Thanks @stfcj @martikamarcelina for being my training buddies
@lvvng_ for lending me the useful belt
@sako7official for the very cool bidon!
all the support from @runonbali @indorunnersbali 🙏🏼
and last but not least @arlenebinarto , @santosarin for checking on us after the race! Thank God we didnt have to walk again to reach the shuttle bus! .

Worst part is, in the last week when I have been rolling over in bed and I straighten my leg, I’m getting a sharp shooting pain go through the outside of my knee. I saw the surgeon as a follow up on Wednesday who said all this was normal.

A few weeks ago I dyed and cut my hair for the first time in 2.5 years! (Swipe to see the before Root regrowth 😂). I feel so much more myself again and even found the energy to put makeup on for the first time in months! I need to get my camera out to take some proper photos as these don't show all the colour blends. There's about 6 different turquoise and green shades with purple accents.

It's amazing how something like dying your hair can make such a difference! I spend so much time in my pjs with my hair scraped back and I've got bad eczema all over my face which is sore and itchy, my lips are cracked and my eyes are constantly swollen from dehydration so I feel like I look as sick as I feel! It's not nice looking in the mirror every day and feeling like you're losing yourself to your health.

Healthwise, I'm still really struggling, don't let those pictures fool you. I've got a doctors appointment on Monday to go through some things, waiting on a referral and have secured funding for Lyme testing at Armin labs in Germany so at least I'll know one way other the other on that once the tests are back. Other than that trying to focus on pacing and keeping out of flares ups but I'm not doing the best job at that 🙈

I’ve never been a fan of cutting an entire food group. Food allergies are a different story of course. I fully believe in BALANCE.
I started this new program, 4 days a week, it’s a great balance of macros or all food groups, in the first week I saw results and felt so good after my summer long hiatus from routine.
Week 2 I was experiencing so much swelling and bloating. I was uncomfortable and on top of being sore (like so sore) I was taking meds daily for headaches. If you know my back story I suffered from migraines for yrs. kicked those so frequent headaches was really starting to upset me. Every day even though I was eating healthy balance diet I was MISERABLE.
Week 3 it got progressively worse. Joints were aching. Headaches getting worse. Swelling at an all time high. I kinda shut down publicly Bc I was so miserable but was sharing with some ladies in our private group who were helping weed out potential issues.
Against my hearts wishes I narrowed it down to Dairy or Carbs (grains) which both have a huge soft spot In my heart and diet. I cut Dairy before while nursing so know I can do it but all of a sudden at 31 one of these were ailing me. 😩🙄 So this week is week 4 of this program and I’m 72 hours at 95% GRAIN free (carbs are in like everything) only carbs I’ve had has been fruits/veggies/and some breading.
I’ve drank water, coffee, and eaten this morning already (photo on right) and NO SWELLING!!!! last week these shorts hurt to even rest on my stomach. It feels SO good. I’ve been working so hard and couldn’t tell Bc I was so swollen.
NOW. As excited as I am for results and answers. I’m more upset about this any I thought I’d be. I’ve always been able to consume carbs (clean ones) and have a healthy balance and essentially no effect. I practically live for carbs. They make me happy. So this will take more adjusting that I even want to admit. I get hangry and emotional over food 😬 cutting the carbs this week has made me crazy sugar BADDDDDD. So finding that balance too.
So if you see me looking like I’m having withdrawals. I am. Proceed with caution. I’m in mourning over here. 🙌

But During my last several weeks of pregnancy I’ve had plenty of moments when I didn’t feel like laughing, I’ve felt 😴 tired and uncomfortable instead🤨
.
It’s such a clear reminder to honor the struggle and not allow those struggles to consume your life or change who you are
.
I may not LAUGH when I only got 3 hours of sleep and have swollen, sore feet....but if I’m watching a great movie or spending time with amazing friends, i’m going to be all LAUGHS! Bring the joy my friends...
.
Life is too short to forget to LAUGH!

(But worth the read) I’ve been saying I’ll do a beauty post for god knows how long so here is the first! (Make up details to follow) I have been getting Clearlift laser alongside Fire & ice facial,
Radiofrequency & ultrasound and Mandelic acid skin peels @drmedispa . I started seeing Dr Somji last year and I’ve never looked back. It takes me 1.5-2hours (when I don’t get lost on the tube🙈) to get to his surgery in Loughton and I’m yet to regret it! This week I had my first Fractora treatment, I did what most people do and googled the treatment and I completely freaked myself out thinking I would come out with a very swollen/sore face but I should of known better that would never be the case with Munir. I couldn’t trust him anymore. If you would like to know more about my beauty treatments I have let me know ☺️💛

Ive been battling a little head cold the past few days and rumor is this little Starbucks drink helps! 🤧🤷🏼‍♀️ I altered the recipe a bit by eliminating the lemonade all together (all that sugar wasn’t appealing) and added my own local honey when I got home!
-
It’s often called a “Cough Drop” or “Medicine Bomb” but if your barista is unfamiliar you can order it:
* Venti Cup w/ a bag of Jade Citrus Mint Tea and a bag of Peach Tranquility Tea
* Add half hot water and half steamed lemonade
* Add a little honey for its anti-microbial effects
* Optional: Add a pump of peppermint (I did!)
-
Again I went with no lemonade so I just used a grande cup. The taste is great and wether or not it helps, we’ll see! If nothing else the warm tea feels good on my swollen sore throat 💛 #starbuckssecretmenu

Toe-to-toe for three rounds in an incredibly tough bout, and in the end he won on points. I don’t think he’d mind me saying it was very close. I think what perhaps swayed the judges was a fine punch from him in the third that caught me flush on the chin and dropped me to my knees. I got up and fought on though. 
He was a wonderful opponent, with a great deal of respect, and afterwards gave me some pointers and we exchanged numbers. Turns out he works in the military as a diver! He was calm and fit and absorbed some really huge clean blows and kept pushing on. Today my left hand won’t close from punching him (he wouldn’t go down!), and my nose is swollen and my eye is blue and it’s sore to chew. But I’ll be just fine.
Inside me, there are so many emotions. There is massive disappointment at losing, and frustration at not doing all the things I know I can. I put a great deal of pressure on myself and that, I think, limited me a bit. Something about trying so hard can hamper performance. But I care very deeply about everything I do, and I don’t know if I’d want to change that. Few of us will ever fight for word titles or play for world cups, and it’s okay to care about the events in our lives, no matter how small they may be.
And there are many things to be happy about. I learnt a lot about myself. And to have my friends there calling for me is something I will cherish forever. I can be certain that we will remember my battle against the soldier in Wetton for the rest of our lives. I did well against a bigger, and more experienced opponent, and I did something that was not easy.
What I found remarkable was at the weigh-in, noticing how nervous all the guys were. The thing, to paraphrase Madiba, is that it’s not that the guys weren’t scared. They were, but they pushed through it, and they fought. I take comfort in the fact that despite all the nerves and fears, I went on, and I did it. And when my lungs were burning, and my body was dying, and I’d been rocked to the jaw and my knees had given up, I decided to get up, and fight on. Because that’s what we do when we get knocked down. We get up. x

It’s comforting, warming, and nourishing. Pair this recipe with a fresh salad of your choice and it makes a winning dinner you can enjoy on your own or with family and friends.
__
Portobello mushrooms are excellent at strengthening the immune system and can significantly lower the risk of colds, flu, ear infections, bronchitis, swollen glands, sore throats, and chronic infections. They have also been shown to slow down or prevent the onset of tumors in the body. These mushrooms are a good source of vitamins E, B12, and D and minerals such as zinc, selenium, iron, and calcium.

__
Cauliflower contains the trace mineral boron, which is known to help the endocrine system—and yet cauliflower gets more attention for the so-called goitrogens it contains. Cauliflower does the very opposite of what the hype says—it helps the thyroid and the rest of the endocrine system (including the hypothalamus and adrenal glands) to stave off the viruses that are truly behind issues such as thyroiditis.
__
Cauliflower Portobello Boats
__
Ingredients:
6-8 large portobello mushrooms
1 tsp dried oregano
1 1/3 lb cauliflower, cut into florets
1 clove of garlic, finely chopped
1/4 cup chives, finely chopped + more for garnish
3-4 tbsp unsweetened almond milk
Sea salt and pepper

__
Directions:
Preheat oven to 375F. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and arrange your Portobello mushrooms on top, cap side down. Sprinkle dried oregano, sea salt and pepper on top. Roast in the oven for 20-25 minutes, until soft.
__
While the mushrooms are cooking, place a medium-sized pot on the heat and add about an inch of water and a steaming basket. Add the cauliflower, put the lid on and cook until soft, about 15-20 minutes. Set aside.
Place the cauliflower in a food processor with garlic, chives, almond milk, salt and pepper. Process until smooth.
__
Take the mushrooms out of the oven and top with the cauliflower purée. Sprinkle fresh chives on top. Serve immediately.

I’m tired and sore, my feet feel like swollen sausages! A real mess.” Your voice shakes with high pitch angst.

I can feel my body tense as waves of frustration wash over me and all I can think is, but you have a baby inside of you… you won.

Inside I scream. I am so done with feeling like this. I am so sore too—from daily injections. I am so tired too—from early morning monitoring and sleepless nights. I am a mess too. I don’t know how much more I can take.

There is no due date for me. There is no countdown or cute infertility ticker.

I muster, “Aww hang in there.” It’s your turn. You order your green tea latte, smile and tell me to have a great day. “You too,” I say. As I watch you walk away with a slight waddle, I dig deep and say, “Hey good luck with everything.” Then I dig even deeper, close my eyes and send warm thoughts your way. I wish you and your baby nothing but joy and health ahead.

Breathe in.
The truth is, I am truly happy for you, but sad for me. I am the infertile woman who you speak to all the time but don’t know. At the doctor’s office, at the gym, in Starbucks, at the bank, at the mall. When my eyes fall upon a pregnant belly, I feel emotions rise inside me. I will pay attention to these feelings. I will send love and light to you, beautiful mother to be. I will wish you nothing but love, to surround you and your growing baby.

I don’t know what your journey to get here has been, maybe you have gone through something similar. Regardless, you are carrying an amazing gift. I hope that when I am pregnant, that this kind of energy and love will fall onto me and my baby.

So, today I will choose love over jealousy. I will choose hope over frustration.

I will send only love your way. It’s what keeps me fighting.

Exhale.

Here is #bidensalba often called #bidenspilosa in the #asteraceae family one of the largest of plant families. B.alba and B. pilosa are distinguished as two different species. B.alba flower petals are usually a cm (centimeter) long or longer, and it has 5 to 8 petals. B. pilosa is smaller and lesser of the two. Its petals are under a cm in length, usually 8 mm or less. It has 4 to 7 petals, or none at all. Also, B. pilosa seeds have 3 to 5 barbs and B. alba has 2 or none. “In the Philippines, B. pilosa is used to treat rheumatism, sore eyes, abdominal troubles, ulcers, swollen glands and toothache. In Mexico, it is used to treat stomach disorders, haemorrhoids and diabetes and it also possesses antimicrobial properties”

In Hawaii this plant is known as ko’oko’olau, there are at least 13 endemic species often with yellow flowers, the above ground parts of the #plant are brewed into a tea, used as a tonic, blood purifier, diabetes, and for treating throat and stomach ailments. In some places, it is used as a poultice. In Mexico, the leaves are also used for brewing a medicinal tea. Moreover, an infusion of the leaves is used in the Kingdom of Tonga treat cuts and boils and is dripped on to eye ailments thought to have a supernatural origin.

Spanish needles has a long historical cosmology used by “indigenous tribes of the Amazon where all parts of the plant are used. In the Peruvian Amazon, it is used for angina, diabetes, dysentery, dysmenorrhea, edema, hepatitis, jaundice, laryngitis and worms. In Piura, a decoction of the roots is used for alcoholic hepatitis and worms. The Cuna tribe mixes the crushed leaves with water to treat headaches. Near Pucallpa Peru, the leaf is balled up and applied to a toothache and the leaves are also used for headaches. In other parts of the Amazon a decoction of the plant is mixed with lemon juice and used for angina, sore throat, water retention, hepatitis and dropsy. The Exuma tribes grind the sun-dried leaves with olive oil to make poultices for sores and lacerations.”

—I haven’t been posting much and prob won’t be (maybe some SC filters) because since I’ve gotten back from Mexico, idk what’s going on with my body (and I’m not asking for diagnoses) but I’m so tired, and along with a some nasal and throat issues, I’ve gotten a rash on my finger, and my lips are swollen, hurt, and have darkened... TBH the discoloration and puffiness with my mouth is making me insecure and I’ve been putting concealer on my lips which I know isn’t helping. I’m going to a doctor and have follow up soon, and it’s gotten a lot better but again, I’m not asking for an Instagram diagnoses and recommendations from you doctors in the room, but well wishes and prayers are welcome tho.
—I loooved those Marley twists and the only reason I took them out is because in my personal opinion, they were unsanitary after I spent a week straight sweating, dipping in the pool, a cave, and the beach, plus having on those stanking helmets for zip line and the atv. It’s a long lasting style, I just felt like they were dirty and I wasn’t about to shampoo them so I got a new hair do since I don’t get braids often.
—I’ll still be attending CurlFest this month, swollen knee, puffy lips and all!!! See you soon NY!

This is two PMS episodes (for lack of a better term) apart. -
I typically experience 11 days of severe PMS. Becoming extremely bloated, my boobs wouldn’t even fit in a bra and it would hurt to even walk or go over speed bumps, those 11 days were just awful for me. Being tired, crying, and physically uncomfortable. - MY ENTIRE BODY WOULD SWELL!! I’m now 3 days away from my period start date, Minimal bloated, close to zero fatigue and no body aches or pains. My boobs are a little swollen and tad bit sore but I’d take this over what I had been dealing with for years.
3 weeks on the gel and I’m experiencing so many positive changes in my body, mood and day to day life.
This is a 6 month process. For those who are interested I don’t suggest you wait for my 6 month results to begin your journey! But I also get it! -
I know this was a little TMI

Ill talk more about it later ❤️ #getonthegel

Hello swollen feet, sore everything, and never-ending hunger! Oh baby, I can’t believe we are in the final stretch! I feel like I just peed on that stick yesterday and was trying to convince Garrison that I wasn’t joking 😂 Time is just flying by and if it’s moving this fast with my pregnancy I don’t want to know how quickly time goes by once she’s here. I received so many tips on how to prepare our first baby (@ohoakley) for his little sisters arrival. Starting today we are playing baby crying noises for him and getting him ready for the chaos that’s ahead of us. He’s been so protective of me since I’ve been pregnant and I just hope he loves and cares for his sister the same.

Also: We will be announcing our little flower’s name soon so stay tuned for that 👏🏼💖

As I currently lay in my epsom salt bath with swollen feet and the most painfully sore muscles I've ever had the pleasure to remind me I'm alive, the last thing on my mind is Killington this weekend.

But then I saw this picture.

And I read the caption of what I had written last year.

I spoke about the carride home after this race, when I cried all alone just thinking about my very first year on that mountain compared to where I was last year.

And to think... last year I would have never even contemplated attempting an HTL this year.

And here I am, nursing battle scars from the hardest and most rewarding event I've done yet. Thinking about how I'll "never fucking do that again"... although we all know I will most certainly do it again.

Life is beautiful. And growth is beautiful.

And although it will hurt, you'll all still see my newly bolted ass on that mountain this weekend.

Although I might be slower than I was my first year.

But I got a good excuse. ⚡⚡⚡

Dropped Emmy at home with @gmoodyy and then ran @mina9965 to our pediatrician - for 102° temp, sore throat, body aches and very swollen glands. .

Strep positive - so we are loading up on antibiotics and Motrin and face masks (😷) and praying Emmy and the other kids don’t get it! .

Never a dull moment around here! 🤣
