A year ago today, my life was completely changed. This fun loving, positive, high-energy girl had absolutely no idea that a simple broken leg could cause so many problems, but would later learn that it was a blessing in disguise for her future. Discovering I carry the rare and deadly blood disorder that only 2% of the population has, better known as factor 2, would determine how I live the rest of my life. But going through the experiences I have endured has allowed me to become more aware of my risks, become more healthy overall and made me a stronger person. This entire year leading up to this moment has had it's ups and had it's downs, but I have never taken a single moment for granted since July 5th, 2016. Thank you to everyone who has been here, to support me and comfort me through the highest highs and the lowest lows. Here's to many more years to come, clot free!! โค๏ธโœจ

When I think back to the pain, the struggle, the depression and anxiety of my 2 blood clots after pregnancy AND postpartum depression after my 2nd baby... I look at my family & think of this statistic all the time. I'm too blessed.

I not only thank God for surviving large DVTs TWICE. I also thank Him for the strength He gave my husband & I. DVTs may have destroyed me mentally for a couple years but it only strengthened our love. The only best friend i need. Newlyweds June 22 2013 & 1st DVT emergency Dec 16. Same year. 2nd DVT emergency Sept 28 2015.

You damn skippy our Anniversary is the WHOLE SUMMER lolololol

This has been a humbling week. I am reminded of how important it is to live fully and happily since many don't get that chance. I only have 8 lives left after all. #bloodclotsurvivor

And we will overcome by the blood of the lamb and by the word of our testimony. What an honor it was to share my testimony with my @fccencounter church. GOD'S GOOD.

Getting my blood work checked out and making sure everything is all good now #bloodclotsurvivor

A few #transformationtuesday fun facts about me:

1. I wasn't happy with my body waaaay before having my daughter. The left photo is from 2011, about a year after graduating high school.

2. I always considered myself athletic BUT NOW that I know what being a real athlete meansโ€”I consider my old self a completely mediocre high school athlete wannabe...That makes me giggle. I am 24 years old, a mother, and at the most confident stage of my life so far. Confident in my body, in my ability, and in the positivity life has to offer. Three things that are new to me now. Three things I plan to grow old with.

3. Size/weight/build mean nothing. If you are happy with you, then you're doing life exactly right. I wasn't. It had a lot to do with physical appearance but it had a lot more to do with mental perspective. Finding fitness helped me find myself. On the left, I am a size 13. I still have those shorts, as a matter of fact (Just got them out to check the size). I'm now a size 2. S/O to all the people who say, "you didn't neeeed to lose weight." You're right. I didn't need to do anything that didn't make me happy. You're right. I didn't need to lose weight. That saying just contributes to health misconceptions. I needed to build some muscle and lift some real weights. I needed to get a handle on my ONE LIFE.
4. If I would have realized how out of hand I was letting my health get in the photo on the left, I probably wouldn't be labeled a #bloodclotsurvivor .. Being fit isn't only a hobby for me, it is a solution to two blood disorders. I am not cured but I believe (key word: I, me, Alisa) that I can prevent further blood clots by continuing a healthy lifestyle to the best of my ability. I refuse to take POSION everyday to thin my blood. (That's me. I trust my gym ability more than some lab that doesn't give one crap about the long term effects of a drug). Life is too damn short to be anything but the best version of yourself you can be. Happy Tuesday! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Yo this is the IVC filter from my surgery from last Monday. I'm keeping this as a reminder of how lucky and blessed I am. I love you all!!! #blessed #bloodclotsurvivor #stopyourbloodclotcrying #puliminaryembolisim #blessingsonblessings

SO Thankful for my best friend/husband. Michael survived a pulmonary embolism a couple weeks today. It was one of the scariest times of our lives. We are very grateful he is doing wellโค๏ธ love you Michael Anthony #bloodclotsurvivor #blessed

Today is World Thrombosis Day. One in four deaths worldwide are related to thrombosis, also known as blood clots.
๐Ÿ”ด
Blood clots can affect anyone at any age. Up to 900,000 people in the US are affected and 100,000 will die. This number is greater than deaths caused by AIDS, breast cancer and car crashes combined.

I am a proud and very fortunate survivor of pulmonary embolisms (blood clots in the lungs) caused by the birth control NuvaRing. Five years ago I was told my life would be very different and I would never be an athlete again. Fortunately, that's not how my story went. However, many other women did not live to tell their story. I am so blessed to share my comeback journey and promote awareness while representing Team USA and the Army WCAP as an athlete during an Olympic year.

Many thanks to Stop The Clot, Informed Choice for AmErika, Blood Clot Recovery Network and others that helped me during my long recovery. Thank you to Vanity Fair, Anderson Cooper360, CT Channel 3 and other local news outlets for sharing my and classmate Erika Langhart's story.

I'm happy that today I'm able to run and enjoy staying fit! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’ฏ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผit wasn't always that way. In July I had a huge blood clot all over my left leg. I know I've mentioned this before but I'm just grateful that I'm still here and that I'm still able to do the things I enjoy I couldn't imagine my life without fitness. I know I'm lucky that made it though especially how big the clot was. I now live life to the fullest and never take anything for grant. Always be grateful for what you have now because you never know what life will throw at you. Don't just try to get through life but live it! Life is too short!

Enjoying our roadtrip and hiking adventures!! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Flowing waters

Time for another road trip with my handsome hubby!! Here is our view from our resort! Takes my breath away!!

4 yrs ago. Wow. Pregnant with my 1st son. 2 weeks after giving birth i was rushed to the hospital with a numb, painful & heavily swollen right leg. Luckily i had symptoms & caught the blood clot before it reached my heart or lungs. 4 days i sat in a hospital room depressed, scared, and drugged. I didnt die. 1 out every 4 women die from blood clots during or after pregnancy and i was that 1. God has been good to me. #dvtsurvivor #bloodclotsurvivor

Guys, I was given a mission. To talk to you about Thrombosis. And today, October 13th, is World Thrombosis Day. @worldthrombosisday. Do you know what it is? Do you know that 1 in 4 deaths are related to Thrombosis? The numbers say it all. I am a survivor. I am honored to be here sharing a little bit of my story. I was pregnant, my first and only pregnancy. It all started with Hyperemesis gravidarum, if you know this condition, you know that you have chronic morning sickness the whole time during pregnancy. This lead to dehydration and too much rest. That, plus hormones were the perfect formula to form a blood clot that went from the back of my knee all the way to my vena cava (chest area). That's a massive one! These blood clots break down as a mechanism of defense and travel to your lungs, brain, etc... Killing you in seconds. It blows my mind to think that Kenneth and I both survived it all. More than ever, I believe that there's a time, a perfect time for everyone. That was not our time. I was supposed to be here today, telling you that this can happen to anyone. You don't have to be old, out of shape, pregnant, etc... to develop a blood clot (Thrombosis). My advice is: get educated, get moving, keep yourself hydrated and get yourself checked for clotting mutations if they run in your family. Don't stay in the same position for more than two hours, move, stretch, keep that blood flowing. Keep your life flowing. The longer your blood sits in the same spot, the higher the chances are for a blood clot to develop. Today, my blood circulation is assisted by three stents. These stents keep me alive. My friend from college lost her life to a blood clot in her brain a few months ago. Her two daughters are under the care of their grandmother. She had severe head aches for years. This is for you, Gina! โค๏ธ Your beautiful smile could light up a room, you were light. For you my friend. Every day, for us, is a huge blessing โค๏ธ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ Life is beautiful friends, it's worth it. #keeplifeflowing #knowthrombosis #bloodclotsurvivor #nomorebloodclots here, a little clip from my video where I shared my experience with Thrombosis.

Today, October 13, is World Thrombosis Day, and an important opportunity for us to share life-saving information about blood clots. Everyone should take a moment today to learn if you are at risk for a dangerous blood clot, because it is the most important step you can take to protect yourself. Risk factors can include, hospitalization, surgery, pregnancy, cancer and its treatment, personal or family history of blood clots, estrogen-based birth control, estrogen treatment of menopause symptoms,ย  smoking, overweight, age 55 or older, and long-term diseases such as heart and lung conditions, or diabetes. 1 in 4 deaths are related to thrombosis, learn about it:

Just over two years ago, I experienced blood clots in my brain and in my lungs that put me in the hospital for almost two weeks and out of work for three months. It was a crazy and life-changing experience that has altered how I approach my life. Blood clots werenโ€™t even on my radar at the time, and I didnโ€™t expect to be impacted as a young, healthy, and active lady, but I was. Know the signs, symptoms, and risk factors for blood clots. It could save your life. #worldthrombosisday #bloodclots #bloodclotsurvivor #WTDay17 #stopdeadlyclots

Car accident last night. Whip lash this morning. Dry cough and a calf still hurting. Checking my pulse ox is keeping me sane this morning. This is the life of a blood clot survivor. You're always on alert and acutely aware of the signs of a PE/DVT.
Thankfully my pulse ox looks good, my HR is low- but normal.
9๏ธโƒฃ days until the Marine Corps Marathon and no clue if I am going to be able to run it.
