Whenever I tell someone that I have Celiac Disease the typical response is something along the lines of, “That sucks. It must be miserable.” It is miserable, but it isn’t at the same time. Being diagnosed with Celiac Disease was a blessing. It answered so many questions I spent the vast majority of my 20s trying to answer. Why was it that one week I could be completely energized and happy, and the next week I could be anxious and depressed? Why did I have weeks where I was consumed by brain fog, and other weeks where I was completely clear headed? Why did I require a 2-3 hour nap in the afternoon at the age of 25? Why was I so moody? Why would I randomly blow up and look 6 months pregnant? 🤷‍♀️ Why? Why? Why? These are just a few of the questions that I asked myself on a daily basis. What is wrong with me? After awhile you start to question your own mental sanity. I did, for sure. A lot. About a year and a half ago I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. If you look up the definition of Celiac Disease on any health website there should be a picture of me. I’m practically the poster child 🙋‍♀️ After I completely cut out gluten from my diet I began to heal emotionally and physically. In order to avoid cross contamination and potentially getting “gluten bombed,” I taught myself to cook 👩‍🍳 (and I’m quite the little chef now 😬) Something that has helped me tremendously over the past 10 years of my life is Pilates. It lessened the brain fog. It gave me endorphins to fight the depression. It taught me to breathe again, and helped me live with severe anxiety. It made me feel strong. On some days... it even got me out of bed. Pilates has played a HUGE role in my life, and not just in relation to Celiac Disease. Pilates has always been there for me, and @remedypb has always been a safe place for me to land. So why am I telling you this? 1. My sister and fellow Celiac inspired me 2. Now you know where my genuine passion for Pilates comes from 3. I am proof that Pilates and movement can heal the mind and the body 4. If I can help just one person feel better physically, emotionally, and spiritually than I am
fulfilling my life’s purpose - to help others feel their best.

That feeling you get after crushing a workout! 😅
YOU know what I'm talking about!!!

I’m really loving my @invisalign and I can’t wait to see my results in November! #happylife #smilebig #thisis31

The other day on our long bus ride back to Ontario from North Carolina I had so many compliments about my smile. It made me realize that I didn't always like to smile! Before I had braces I was insecure about my overbite and had kids call me "Sandy Cheeks" from Spongebob which made me super self conscious about my smile. It wasn't until just before high school when I had my braces removed just in time for grade nine starting in a couple months that for the first time ever I honestly felt beautiful!
I sometimes forget this part of my life and it was a kind reminder to be grateful to have had a mom who had spent so much money on my teeth! This smile has helped me get jobs, make friends, be more social and confident. So today, smile a little harder because no matter what people think of your smile, you deserve to show your happiness!!! 💎
Ps: now my biggest fear is chipping a tooth or losing my teeth 😂 #steppingstone #moment #behappy #smilebig #confidence #beautiful

Happy birthdayyy❤ I really like it when you post photos of yourself Smiling BIG. You have a beautiful smile, wear it often. May this year brings more smiles and times of joy for you❤🙌
