MOST RECENT

Sometimes in the middle of a 100+ hour work week you just have to stop and be a little goofy. My royal chair that I found on campus Saturday! And my shirt matches 🧡

Don’t be ashamed of your story, it will inspire others! 🙌🏼 I have had so many people reach out to me, especially recently when I really opened up about my health and journey. I’ve said it time and time again, I don’t tell my story for attention, for credit, for symphony or anything like that. I tell it for those who might be at the beginning of their story, who don’t know where to turn to, who feel so alone. To me, it is incredibly important to know you are not alone in your journey.

YOU ARE NOT ALONE!
I decided to create my own website so l can truly open up and those that want to follow me and read more can! Link is in my profile!
Take a look and hope to see you there! 😘

Prüvit!

I’ve been asked a few times why Pruvit Ketones versus other brands that you can buy in stores or online. 🤷🏻‍♀️
.
🙌🏼We own the patent on pure therapeutic ketones which was developed with grants from the Department of Defense and the Office of Naval Research to avoid brain toxicity/seizures at high altitudes and in deep sea missions, among other things. .
🙌🏼No one can reproduce our pure therapeutic ketones which are bio-identical to the Ketone created in your body and, regardless of diet, will put you into ketosis. .
🙌🏼The knock offs have filler salts in them that cannot be used by the body very well.
Backed by science, research, NASA and the Department of Defense. 💯

My 10 Days just got a bit sweeter!
Our new flavors just arrived on my doorstep. This is your chance to test drive all of my FAVE flavors.
Basically if you can answer yes to any of these questions you need to KETONES in your life! .
🙈trouble focusing?
🙈want to boost mental clarity?
🙈constantly hungry?
🙈carb cravings?
🙈poor quality of sleep?
🙈energy crash in afternoon?
🙈want to upgrade physical performance?
🙈 need some anti-aging from the inside out?! Interested?! Comment below & I’ll put you on my list for one of these 10 Day Experiences!
Hurry, they never last long 🤩

It’s been an interesting week. I was looking for some positive vibes to come into my life to draw out all of the negative energy that has been consuming me lately in many different aspects of my life! .
Mission accomplished! 🙌🏼
.
Why do we hold onto things that no longer serve us in a positive way?
.
Why do we keep repeating vicious cycles that are leading us down a very dark path?
.
I had to get off of that roller coaster but I guess I had to hit my own version of rock bottom before I realized I could stop the damn ride. .
I was angry when I was put back onto a very restrictive diet again but the truth is, I forgot how amazing it felt to feel amazing. I have worked out every day this week!! My energy level is incredible. My inflammation and pain is decreasing. .
Let food be thy medicine....

Life would just be way too boring if we just did the same thing over and over again. New gym in town means a chance to change it up a bit and add some more variety to our workout schedule! .
Stick with the people who pull the magic out of you, not the madness. .
So thankful for this lady right here who has been on this journey with me for many years now!

When the sharpest words wanna cut me down
I'm gonna send a flood, gonna drown them out
I am brave, I am bruised
I am who I'm meant to be, this is me
Look out 'cause here I come
And I'm marching on to the beat I drum
I'm not scared to be seen
I make no apologies, this is me 💕

Game time!
.
I know I feel like crap, when I eat crap and so no more!!
.
Back to my Paleo/Keto lifestyle because that’s when I feel the best!

Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don't resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality.

Those words, I just keep reading them over and over again as I attempt to once again put a ton of tiny puzzle pieces back together after a recent health update over the last few weeks. Yesterday’s literally knocked me to my knees but I’m ready to stand up and face everything head on.
More info to come in my new blog that I am creating to share my story. Some people might think I overshare when it comes to my health, some people would prefer to keep things private but what good does that do? I have people reach out to me all the time because they have similar medical struggles and they literally felt all alone, until they read something I shared.
I don’t do this for the attention, or for myself. I do this for the young girl who literally can’t get herself up out of bed in the morning. I do this for the one who feels like her entire world is crashing down when doctor after doctor says well something is wrong but we don’t know what yet and they are throw to yet another specialist. I do this for the one who just learned about a new diagnosis but has no idea what it all means.
I don’t do this for me now, I do this because I know what navigating that road feels like and if I can help even one other person, it makes my soul happy.
Let reality be reality.
Don’t resist change.
Be the change.

Oh the roller coaster ride that comes with autoimmune diseases. Just this week, two days I completely slept through my morning alarm and my husband’s obnoxious one that I ALWAYS hear. Then there are mornings like today where 4am hits and I am wide awake and ready to roll. This is why I always have my go bag ready. And by go bag, I mean my cycling cleats and gym clothes ready to go. .
A little morning splash because this flavor is literally the most refreshing thing in the world and then out the door for me for my morning ride! .
I wanted to beat myself up for missing earlier this week but instead I am going to celebrate today.

Back by popular demand and in limited supply ✨
