The starting point of all achievement is desire. - Napoleon Hill⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
Two weekends ago, I completed my first sprint triathlon, which I didn’t think I could ever achieve. I didn't know how to swim, nor ride a road bike, but I knew I want to complete one.⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
I had about 8wks to train & learn to swim. I wanted to quit after the 3rd week. It took me 4 wks to feel somewhat at ease in the water. I learned to breathe in week 6. Going from panicking in the pool to swimming freestyle in open water was no yoke. I did it while nursing a grade 2 separation on my left shoulder and a load of emotional baggage. The shoulder hurt to swim especially with the wetsuit. I wanted to cry every time I pull off my shirt after practice & when the pain woke me up at night. It still hurts to run uphill. I didn’t bike & run to save my arm for swimming. It was difficult emotionally because I no longer had a partner to share my struggle. Poor @dumputer had to be the stand in whenever I needed to complain. It became a mental battle of how badly I wanted to swim ½ a mile.⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
I did have an amazing swim coach, Erin @tryfit. She got me through the pain with her encouragement and commitment at every swim session. She taught me how to use the gears on my bike a few days before the race, too. I tried riding on my own twice and I f-up the derailleur so badly that it needed repair both times. Erin also prepared me for other important aspects of triathlon as well so I showed up on race day feeling less apprehensive than I would have been.⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
Like a fairy tale story, race day was perfect. Great weather, great friends, @carrieganster and @myjetsetter @msjyu kicked butts! I survived the swim. I rode the 3mi uphill solely on my determination not to disappoint Erin. I repeated her words over and over, “YOU are not going to walk,” and to her pedaling cadence of “one, two, one, two.” At the end of the race, she asked if I walked and I was happy to reply, “I did not get off my bike!” In true badass fashion, Erin came in first in the women division at the race! What an inspiration! ⁣⁣⁣
#rokasports & #bettydesigns definite helped me feel comfortable and look super fly, too.

You need adversity in order to get better and stronger! ⠀

That’s what my trainer said this morning. ⠀
I thought about how we complain when stuff in life is hard or there is something we don’t wanna do... and yet doing the crappy, hard stuff in life is what makes us better human beings! ⠀
So, time to reframe my mindset and lean into the hard. What about you? Double tap if you are learning to feel the same!

I'm currently at home recovering from breast cancer reconstructive surgery so I thought I'd drop in with an update.

I want to talk about my journey with conventional and alternative medicine. In 2014 I quit traditional cancer treatment and medication due to my lack of quality of life.

It was a pretty easy decision for me to make once I started listening intuitively to my body and stopped listening to the plethora of specialists and doctors. After all, no one knows my body like I do irrespective of how many post nominals you have at the end of your name.

It was a decision that turned out to be exactly what I needed, and I've had absolutely no regrets. I've remained cancer-free, and I'm now in remission, six years and counting.

Fast forward to now. Conventional medicine is never my first, second or even third choice as it's just not for me. But, if/when the time does arise I'd never sacrifice my own health and wellbeing because of my preferred choices.

So yes, pre and post-surgery I elected to take the necessary pharmaceuticals to manage both my anxiety and pain because it was the right choice given the circumstances. Out of the three surgeries I've had for my breast cancer, it's been the biggest requiring the most recovery.

But I also know and have my alternative options which I know will help and support my body once I'm off pharmaceuticals. First, up will be a detox to help remove any remaining anaesthetic and/or medicines from my body.

Then once I'm able to shower and remove my many steri-strips, I can start supporting my scars. That's where my trusted essential oils will help with the healing process.

It's unknown what the final outcome will be, and it's too early to tell. I'll have a better indication once I see my surgeon and from six weeks post-surgery onwards. They're finally 100% healthy, and I know that's what's most important, but I also want them to look good as well. Fingers crossed.🤞🏻

The moral of today's story is both conventional and alternative medicines can co-exist. It's not one or the other. What are your thoughts on the topic? Let me know by leaving a comment below.

You CAN do it. I don’t let my clients say “I can’t”. I used to make them do 5 burpees. I told them they have to say “I will try my best”, “I’m finding this difficult right now”, “I’ll keep practicing”. My best example of this is when my new clients see the jump box and say “NO WAY, I can’t!!” even before they have tried it. Whether they make that first jump or not, we keep practicing every week until they CAN do it with ease💪👏 I love the look on their faces when they make that jump - it literally makes my day! You CAN do it ladies, just keep practicing and keep at it, you got this ❤️ www.kaylaitsines.com/app
