Good luck to all the people who submitted their VMCAS application this week. I know this is a SUPER exciting, scary, exhausting, nerve wracking time but I promise that everything will work out how it’s suppose to. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Some of you will be denied, accepted, waitlisted, or all of the above. I just ask that you please don’t let this process consume you. Continue to live your life and try to refrain from checking your email or the mail 24/7. Don’t panic if you haven’t heard back from schools right away. Every vet school has a different timeline of when they distribute information. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My first letters were all rejection letters and I felt defeated. I automatically thought my dreams of becoming a vet were over. Nothing hurts more than being denied of something you really want. And even if you don’t get accepted this cycle please don’t be discouraged & DON’T GIVE UP. So many brilliant classmates/surgeons/specialists/vet med icons had to apply to vet school 2-3x. Everyone’s path is different! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So keep your head up and try not to stress about the things you cannot control. This application is now out of your hands and your only focus should be living your best life ✨ I wish you all the best of luck and encourage you to reach out to me if you need anything! #DogtorKristi ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

This was the picture I took right after I received my acceptance call from the Dean 💛🖤 Can’t believe this was 3 years ago.

It will hurt. It will take time. It will require dedication. It will require willpower. You will need to make healthy decisions. It requires sacrifice. You will need to push your body to its max. There will be temptation. But, I promise you, when you reach your goal, it’s worth it. •🔸• #rememberwhyyoustarted #soberandfit #onedayatatime #grateful

If I lose because he's simply better I can live with that but I refuse to lose by being outworked. It will take blood, #sweat and tears to get where you want to be. Don't forget to #smile through it all on the way. #gloves #follow4follow #motivation #resultsalert🚨 #refusetolose #dominate #RememberWhyYouStarted #fitness #muaythai🥊 #workoutcomplete🔥💪 #fight #trainhard #pads #cardio #circuittraining #abs #conditioning #whateverittakes #kickboxing

Some days I don't want to push play ... but than I remember WHY I started and I don't let the excuses take over .. which I could have like ... being too tired, headache, cramps, alone for today's workout, already worked out technically with the Terry Fox run .. or too cold!

Did it anyways because I am only one who will do it for me ... change doesn't just happen ... YOU need to take action ♡

Caminhando em beleza
O sagrado ao nosso redor, em cada pessoa e ser que encontramos.
Cabe a nós caminhar pela vida de uma maneira que honre a beleza da criação.

💚🌸🐦 As I walk
The universe is walking with me
In Beauty it walks before
In Beauty it walks behind
In Beauty it walks below
In Beauty it walks above
Beauty is on every side
As I walk, I walk in Beauty 💚

#Transformation #Thursday... can you spot the difference? 🤔 last one all the way to the right is today September 2018 & the one all the way to the left I want to say was February 2017 😬 i needed a little extra #motivation today. I struggle on the daily basis when it comes to food and trying to eat healthy. My cravings take over at times and that’s ok as long as you get back on track and focus on your goal #weightlossjourney #fitlife #healthylife #rememberwhyyoustarted #motivated

Let me pre-apologize for the long post 😅
Because I have been so blessed with a platform to share my story i want to be as transparent as i can when it comes to what is going on with me. .
For the last couple of months I have had issues with dizziness, fainting, and I’ve even blacked out on a couple of occasions. Now the reason I haven’t mentioned any of this is because 1: I didn’t think it was a big deal (stupid I know), 2: I couldn’t think of a reason on why it was happening other than maybe not getting the right amount of protein/vitamins, 3: I’m stubborn as hell and it’s hard to admit something is wrong. .
Monday I had an episode where I passed out while at school and my parents finally put their foot down and begged me to see a doctor. .
After seeing my primary consultant he sent me to a cardiologist (which made me terrified), and after meeting with him today he strongly believes that I have developed “dumping syndrome”
.
For those of you outside the bariatric community I’ll give you a quick rundown on what it is. Basically food runs through your body so fast that it doesn’t have a chance to absorb all of the nutrients which can cause low blood pressure, for me that low blood pressure is making it hard for my heart to get the amount of blood and fluids it needs which is potentially causing my issues! .
How does one fix that? I have been told to stay away from protein shakes and eat more slow digesting foods in hopes that my body will be able to absorb all the nutrients necessary! .
If anyone else in the bariatric community or anyone who has any information/tips on dumping syndrome please drop them down below!! .

When you're having a bad day or a bad week, you need to remember this lesson: sometimes the hardest lessons to learn are the one that our souls needs the most. You can't feel real joy unless you've felt heartache and you can't have a sense of victory unless you know what it means to fail! #baddays #betterdays #sad #happy #dontgiveup #weightloss #weightlossjourney #longway #slowprocess #fightyourdemons #worthit #rememberwhyyoustarted #reason #challenge #foryourself
