Wow! 😲 These pictures were taken exactly one month apart!! Even I was surprised to see how much my face has changed, especially my eyes. No makeup, exact same lighting, exact same location. No wonder my husband said that immediately after my infected root canals were extracted he saw my eyes & face change - he said it was like watching a huge burden be released from my face. It’s AMAZING how the CORRECT treatments can heal the body so quickly! It’s only been TWO WEEKS since the extractions and ozone therapy. HALLELUJAH 💕😆😃🎉. I can’t wait to see what a year of healing will bring! #tlknyc #wholefoodsevangelist #healing #beforeandafter #amazing #health #rootcanalssuck #beingsicksucks #nutritionresponsetesting #autoimmunedisease #spoonie #chronicpain #chronicillness #better #ozone #behealthy #hallejuah

Sit with yourself and the discomfort that comes with identifying and addressing your own problematic behaviors. Apologize sincerely when necessary. Don’t let imposter syndrome get to you. You are worthy of being there and you belong, so take up space. Get some sleep, nurture yourself, and medicate. 🌿🌹

Do you feel like you wait for the perfect moment and situation to get something done?! This workout was less than ideal:
➡️done in hiking shorts
➡️had to do during a lunch break because I slept in this AM
➡️no sneakers
➡️wildfires making it hard to breathe
➡️cellulite flashing
.
I often see others on IG that make workouts look so glamorous. I’m not one of those gals 🙈. You’ll see me huff and puff, sometimes I’m wearing my pajamas, my eyebrows will be sweating off, and sometimes my form may be off. But that’s me, that’s my reality. And the workouts that matter most are the ones that are DONE and that doesn’t mean you have to be put together and perfect for it.

What’s your workout reality?

When you need to rest after packing for your camping trip tomorrow & you’re utterly pooped 😝 I sat down on the bean bag & saw the rain coming down & loved the shaded sunlight coming thru & I thought ... selfie light 🤪😂. So a couple of things...I badly need a haircut. After such a horrendous summer battling the debilitating humidity, I had no energy to go get my hair cut. Two...I was too tired to put my “fake” face on using makeup. It’s me in the raw 😁  I hope your day is full of unexpected lights of various shades & that you’re having a doable comfy day. Loving the rain but with it comes “rain pain” mixed with that dreaded humidity pain. Just tryna enjoy it 🌧😩💦❤️😖💜😄🌻🌷 #mytruth #az #myspoonielife #spoonie #myspooniejourney #chronicillness #chronicpain #chronicfatigue #truth #purpleness #invisibleillness #autoimmunedisease #spoonielife #spoonietruth #autoimmuneillnesses 💜🌻#justme #nomakeup #nolipstick #spoonieintheraw #azweather #rainpain #nofilter ##spooniebarometricpredictor

Nut Free Low Carb, High Fiber Bread Rolls! These bad boys are also dairy free and may I say, oh-so-delicious! I worked off the famous @diet_doctor keto rolls and applied my coconut flour magic, along with a few other tweaks. I wanted these to be good. Period. Not “good for coconut flour keto rolls.” Mission accomplished. 
#
While I don’t recommend eating these kinds of grain subs all the time. Damn it’s nice to have sometimes. Recipe coming soon. .

Tonight’s supper:
~ roasted zucchini
~ roasted 🥕 carrots
~ roasted onions
~ sweet potato🍠
~ roasted parsnips
~ roasted chicken breast 🐓 🍗
~ fermented cucumber 🥒
~ garlic
~ bone broth mixed with juices from roasting chicken🐔
.
I roasted veggies in goose fat in the oven. Chicken was seared in the pan and cooked in #instantpot. It was quick, nourishing and delicious😋😋😋
.
I ended up eating half of the chicken and went back for more veggies☺️
.
We have a little storm today ☔️ 💨 and I am fighting an infection so decided to have something easy and comforting. This dinner was just perfect for a cosy night in.

What are you having for supper tonight?

Confession time: I’m afraid to start working out again.
.
Up until a year ago you’d find me in the gym for about an hour after work two days a week. Nothing crazy, but I really enjoyed that time, and I’d always been an athlete, so working out was just normal for me.
.
Until working out started making me feel worse - with nausea and heart palpitations being the scariest of my symptoms. It just seemed like my heart would race after even the smallest amount of physical exertion.
.
So I did what I knew I needed to do to get healthy, I stopped going to the gym and working out all together. I knew that exercise was a stressor on my already stressed out body, and I was ready to do anything I needed to help it recover and heal.
.
And now that I’m feeling healthier again, I’ve been able to start exerting myself more, which has included some short attempts to lift weights at home.
.
But, if I’m being honest, I’m a little scared. Anytime my heart rate increases I have an anxious thought in the back of my mind that I’ll start feeling nauseous or my heart will skip a beat.
.
I think this fear lies in the fact that these symptoms were so closely tied with me working out before, that the anxiety just creeps back in whenever I attempt those same behaviors now.
.
But, I know that I’m healthier now than I was before, and that if I take it slow and don’t over exert myself my body will be fine. And in reality - I’m just really out of shape, and an out of shape heart needs to beat faster than an in shape one.
.
Just wanted to be super real with you all today. And help to encourage you that if you need to take it slow and cut out things that society would generally consider healthy, do it! And if you have fear around trying something (whether it be working out or food) that once made you feel sick, give yourself some grace, and don’t be too hard on yourself. Healing takes time!

I have found this to be true many time in my life, where I limit my potential and my dreams based on what I think about myself and what I can and cannot accomplish.
.
What’s amazing is that the times I have felt the most alive are the times I’ve stepped outside my personal limits and trusted in God’s dreams for my life. Becoming a work at home Mom at the end of last year was one of those moments I didn’t believe could happen but did once I opened up my mind.
.
If you’re daring enough, share with me when was a time you stepped out of your comfort zone?

How are you spending this last week of summer?  It’s hard for me to believe I’ve lived through 50 summers.  50!  And I can honestly say I’ve never felt more comfortable in my own skin than I do today. I would have looked forward to 50 if I’d known it would feel like this!  I’m seriously enjoying the view😎☀️💪 #fitgirls #fitchick #fitmom #fitness #bikinicompetitor  #rheumatoidarthritis #autoimmunedisease #50plusandfabulous #fitat50 #summer

I swear I'm not really a vain person,  I just can't get over how much I love my teeth now. My smile looks the way I feel now! No more feeling like I have to hold back to hide the hardware or the crooked teeth. I promise not to post toothy grins too frequently, just today. 😆

Unfortunately, most people with #hypothyroidism and #autoimmune #hashimotos spend years on a wrong #thyroid treatment (or even without any treatment) before realizing that it will never work. Most patients never get to learn about a Thyroid Hormone Pathway that exists which your thyroid #hormones must go through in order to perform their metabolic action successfully.
The problem is that in hypothyroidism your pathway becomes blocked on multiple levels preventing your thyroid hormone from reaching your cells. If you can’t get the right amount of thyroid hormones to your cells or your cells can’t metabolize that thyroid hormones efficiently, then you will always be #hypothyroid and continue to have symptoms. 
NO amount, brand or type of thyroid medication can change that. 
However, there's a system to completely unblock your Thyroid Hormone Pathway and permanently restore your thyroid health. 
Learn about it and experience life-changing results at http://thyroidproofdiet.com/hypothyroidism-programs or just click the link in my Instagram profile bio @thyroidproofdiet and read on the blog

Ok, in all seriousness.. being hurt makes me feel like crap. Aside from the actual pain, I get in my own head and that inner dialogue causes my depression to run amok. Without getting into a whole sob story, living with two invisible illnesses is hard, and often overwhelming - especially when the majority of people either don’t know the details, or don’t understand. Even though I spiral and start to panic about what other people might assume, I think it’s important to remember my limits, and know when I have to take a minute and be kind to myself.

I know the photo makes it look suppperrrr sketchy - but I promise, it was delicious! 
It is called Tomato Spinach Chicken Pasta and I just took it one step further and used spinach fettuccine instead of normal spaghetti noodles. This is what I had for lunch today and I was really nervous it would be bad and then I would be stuck searching for a lunch replacement! Luckily, I cleaned my plate. :) RECIPE on blog - find link in my bio!! It was a super easy make and easy cleanup. And remember, if you make it, tag me so I can see!

MOMMIES and MOMMIES-TO-BE, this post is for you!
-
-
I’ve carried and birthed two babies. I gained 50+ lbs with EACH pregnancy. During one of my pregnancies, my doctor told me I was gaining too much weight and needed to keep the weight down. Pretty discouraging thing to hear when you’re literally vomiting all day every day and the only things that sit right in your stomach are bread and crackers.
-
-
I also didn’t really know much about health and fitness at that point in my life so I just did my best.
-
-
This also began the beginning of my autoimmune disease journey.
-
-
After my little man (baby number two)- my body was completely different. No more perky round chest (breast feeding stole all of that), my butt had NO muscle tone- it was super saggy, I ended up with stretch marks that literally look like scars from getting stabbed, etc.
-
-
When my little man was 6 months old (so 2 years after first becoming a mom) I decided to dive into my health and fitness. I didn’t see results overnight. I had (and still have sometimes) moments of frustration. I’ve fallen off the wagon and got back on. I’ve fallen into the comparison game.
-
-
My point to all this is, becoming a mommy can be a transition. It changes us. It changes our bodies. Some women have a hard time with those changes or get discouraged when they look in the mirror. Give yourself the time that you need. Don’t get so caught up in the things you don’t like that you miss out on those special new baby times. Then when you’re ready to make a change, you put one foot in front of the other and start the process. It’s always a process but there is light at the end of the tunnel and I can tell you, our babies grow WAY too fast. So enjoy it. ❤️

Pretty discouraging thing to hear when you’re literally vomiting all day every day and the only things that sit right in your stomach are bread and crackers. - - I also didn’t really know much about health and fitness at that point in my life so I just did my best. - - This also began the beginning of my autoimmune disease journey. - - After my little man (baby number two)- my body was completely different. No more perky round chest (breast feeding stole all of that), my butt had NO muscle tone- it was super saggy, I ended up with stretch marks that literally look like scars from getting stabbed, etc. - - When my little man was 6 months old (so 2 years after first becoming a mom) I decided to dive into my health and fitness. I didn’t see results overnight. I had (and still have sometimes) moments of frustration. I’ve fallen off the wagon and got back on. I’ve fallen into the comparison game. - - My point to all this is, becoming a mommy can be a transition. It changes us. It changes our bodies. Some women have a hard time with those changes or get discouraged when they look in the mirror. Give yourself the time that you need. Don’t get so caught up in the things you don’t like that you miss out on those special new baby times. Then when you’re ready to make a change, you put one foot in front of the other and start the process. It’s always a process but there is light at the end of the tunnel and I can tell you, our babies grow WAY too fast. So enjoy it. ❤️

3 times every week this thing both ruins my day and saves my life.

I am terrified of needles. The only things I'm more afraid of than needless are my illnesses. And spiders.. and a pizza shortage.. Never take your health for granted and make time in your life to do the things you enjoy.

I remember being so sensitive as a child.
.
It manifested as overthinking everything, second guessing myself, always wondering if I did the ‘right’ thing, and replaying conversations over in my head again and again. It made me feel like I over reacted to certain things, therefore I shut this part of myself off so that I didn’t stand out. I scolded myself for being so sensitive and started telling myself to toughen up and build a thicker skin.
.
And I did.
.
It was totally possible to push that part of me down and label it as weak.
.
The last thing I wanted was to be seen as weak.
.
I yearned to be a strong, independent woman.
.
And that’s exactly what I became.
.
A woman who didn’t trust men (or anyone). Who has this hard, I’m a bad ass she’ll.
A you can’t hurt me exterior.
.
But it was all just a facade.
It was a mask to my truth.
.
Then when Jordan died all the bricks of this wall came crumbling down. I didn’t have the energy to hold it up anymore.
.
So I let it crumble. And I watched myself soften.
.
I allowed myself to feel things again.
To trust people.
And most importantly, to start having conversations with myself and trusting myself.
.
I realized how much unnecessary energy I was putting in to this hard version of Sarah.
.
It was exhausting.
.
So I decided not to go back to that way of being.
.
Instead I let that softness find a home and I honored it.
.
It became something I love/d about myself.
.
And it that vulnerability I found my connection to my intuition. It was in that place that my DEEPEST healing occurred.
.
I’m holding space for you to discover your own intuition and harness it for your healing.

Happiness in a bottle 😄😄😄😄😄😄😄
•
Did you know coconut enhances the power of anything it touches?
•
For example if you add coconut water to a smoothie, anything in that smoothie that has healing properties ( such as bananas, wild blueberries, oranges etc) becomes more nutritious & life-changing 🙌🏻
•
Drinking coconut water is the best way to avoid insomnia & other sleep disturbances. It provides vital glucose & critical mineral salts, including potassium & sodium to the bloodstream. This is a fundamental component of our neurotransmitter chemical production.
•
Coconut water is good for every single brain & neurological disorder 🙌🏻 (info from @medicalmedium #lifechangingfoodsbook )
•
I’m drinking it currently in my heavy metal detox smoothie!! 🥥 🥥 🥥 🥥 🥥 🥥 .

It’s been 1 year since we started this crazy journey with Kyndall. I started documenting her inflammation based on what we were doing and what medications she was on. The extremely sad video was shortly after it all started. She was a cranky miserable baby who cried all day and much of the night. .
It was excruciating to watch our 1 year old in pain while we waited on appointments, tests, and insurance companies. .
We since have found out she has Polyarticular Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis. It was a heartbreaking diagnosis that we are still taking one day at a time. .
We have made some drastic changes to her diet and wellness routine. Kyndall is finally on a medication that doesn’t wreck her body from the side affects and is actually helping her inflammation and pain. .
As a parent, I wish I could take this diagnosis from her and let her have a normal childhood. Yet at the same time, I am ever so grateful this wasn’t something more. We go for infusions every two weeks. It is heart breaking to be sitting next to frail children who are there for cancer treatments. All I can do is pray for those sweet babies and praise God for “only having JIA”. I am learning, in every situation, to find ways to praise God. .
I 100% know God is going to use this challenge in Kyndall’s life to bring glory to Him. .
If we allow God to shine through the challenges, it will be a testimony for the hope we have in our loving Father. 💗
.
Are you facing a difficult challenge in your life right now? We’d love to pray for you. 🙏🏼💕

To all those that wake up in the morning and wonder if they will be able to: 
Get out of bed today
Shower. 
Leave the home. 
Make a meal. 
Be free of pain. 
Breathe. 
Sit at a table 
Sit in a chair 
Hold their head up
Maintain hope
Etc

To all those that may “look fine” to others in photos or in those rare public appearances or hear by well meaning friends and family: “everyone has health issues.” Just know:

Whatever you are struggling with
You are not alone. 
I GET you! 
Don’t give up HOPE! 💕

It’s been a rollercoaster recently. I haven’t been super open about everything that’s going on but I think it’s time. Hopefully, this will help someone someday who is going through the same thing. Thankful for my phenomenal support system and all the love surrounding me. Life is good. This is just another part of the journey. #mctd #mctdawareness #autoimmunedisease #raredisease #spoonie

Hey fam! Thanks for hanging in there with me. 
Be encouraged! Be motivated! Work out while you can!
I really wanted to get back into the gym but THIS MESS RIGHT HERE 😑☹😭🤦🏼‍♀️
My left knee has been swollen since last Thursday with NO exercise or injury as the cause. It hurts a great deal, I cannot put much weight on it, and I have no idea why it is swelling. 
X-rays look clear so the clinic recommended a visit to the rheumatologist. 
Appt tomorrow morn. Will keep you posted. 
Prayers appreciated! 🙏🏽❤

Moved to the recliner and now have two kitties.  Lydia is my black and white Tuxedo kitty.  I raised her as a 9 day old after her mother was killed.  She really is gorgeous but quite antisocial. This is the best shot we will get to capture her on camera as she is like “ Go AWAY Paparazzi!!!” each time I try to take a picture!!🤣🤣🤣. Notice Wolff is right on my chest because that’s her favorite place!😍 #ludocat #tuxedocat #rescuekitties #mycats #wolffcat #blindcat #catsifinstagram #blindkitty #handicatsofinstagram #spoonie #autoimmunedisease #polyarthritis #uctd #fibromyalgia #cfsisterhood #myalgicencephalomyelitis  #cfsme #couchbound #chronicpain #spoonielife #myazlife #pwme

I’ve always been a late bloomer. I’m embarrassed to admit I sucked my thumb until I was 11. I didn’t get my braces off or learn to wear makeup until grade 12. Let’s just say I wasn’t “experienced” with boys until weeeeell after high school. I took 6 years to complete a four year University degree. I didn’t go to Teacher’s College for another 3 years after that—I was 30 when everyone else was 21. I started my career a good ten years after many of my colleagues. I waited 14 years to work up the courage to fall in love with my soulmate, whom I had met at 19. I got married at 35, and still don’t know if I’ll be a mother. In the years of waiting, it feels like every milestone is going to pass you by. It becomes more and more difficult to envision achieving a goal when it seems to come easily for everyone else. For years I was convinced I would never marry—it had been so long since I’d been in love, I couldn’t picture it anymore. So it occurred to me today: after all of the waiting, all of the hoping, all the losing faith, and the joyful tears of “Finally!”, who am I to worry that I won’t heal? That I won’t one day live a life without pain? I’m not finished blooming yet. 🌸

Calorie counting sucks to put it mildly. I did it for way too long. Counting calories, weighing & measuring everything I ate. It really didn’t give me the results I wanted & not only that, it made life kinda miserable too
•
Enjoying food at parties, dinners out with friends, on vacation, etc was rough & I was always worried I was eating too much
•
What I wasn’t focused on & should’ve been were small daily habits like these below that help prevent having to count every bite & help focus more on MACROS & enjoying FOOD
•
📌 Use a smaller plate
📌 Prevent mindless snacking
📌 Double your veggie & half your starches
📌 Walk away & stop picking
📌 Save half & eat it the next day or next meal
📌 Focus in THIRST & HUNGER not boredom
📌 Dressing & sauces on the side
📌 Be mindful of empty calories in beverages
•

Leftover pulled pork crisped on the stove, with an egg, goat milk cheddar, cilantro and hot sauce. Accompanied by half an @wholesomeyumblog everything bagel... which yes, does not really look like a bagel but tasted just as good. This is my afternoon snack today, I guess?

I'm not going to pretend that I know how to strike the perfect pose 😜🧘🏻‍♀️ I do like the way it makes me feel, though. Vrksasana may help me strengthen and tone, but I'm more drawn to its ability to help me become more centered. Balance (in life or on the mat - well, in this case, on the beach) isn't always my strong suit. . . .
.
Pigeon, or Eka Pada Rajakapotasana, is probably my favorite. What's your go-to yoga pose?

There is ALWAYS something to be thankful for!
•
I’m thankful for the opportunity that MS has afforded me to connect with amazing people like you!
•
I am able to spend quality time with my peeps that if I was “normal “ I wouldn’t be able to spend with them because I’d be working.
•
I have grown in my relationship with Christ! <- this is my favorite thing MS has done for me!

There're a lot of claims about how coffee is bad for your #thyroid but but the truth is that... they’re all FALSE. Unfortunately, effects of coffee on your body, #hormones, weight and endocrine system is one of the most misunderstood topics. But in fact, coffee and caffeine both boost and protect your thyroid health on numerous levels. ⠀
Learn in a new article on my website:⠀
- How coffee and caffeine reduce your risk of almost every disease from heart disease, to cancer, to diabetes, and even neurodegenerative brain diseases.⠀
- How coffee and caffeine help you to be healthier and live a higher quality of life.⠀
- How people with #hypothyroidism, #autoimmune #hashimotos and low #metabolism can benefit from drinking coffee.⠀
- Why some people have trouble tolerating coffee and can experience blood sugar fluctuations, sleep issues, anxiety, etc. Hint: these types of issues are usually caused by other underlying imbalances like poor liver function, unhealthy diet and nutritional deficiencies but not from the coffee itself. ⠀

As a full time grad student, I have relied on meals that are quick and easy. This chia seed pudding has been a go-to of mine for my early mornings because you can prepare it in advance, and it keeps you full for a long time!⠀
✨⠀
Chia seeds are full of fiber, iron, magnesium, and Omega 3s. You can sprinkle them on salads or smoothies, and when you put them in chia seed pudding, they soak up any liquid and become the consistency of a tapioca pudding ⠀
✨⠀
Recipe:⠀
6 tablespoons chia seeds⠀
2 cups milk alternative (I used almond)⠀
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract⠀
1 tablespoon sweetener (I used maple syrup, but you could use honey or agave)⠀
⠀
Combine ingredients and let sit overnight. It’s as easy as that! When you’re ready to eat, top with fruits, nuts, cinnamon, etc. ⠀

Cancer, grief, heart disease, & autoimmune disorders have tried to become my story for the past 2 yrs, but GRACE won 💕 Restoration didn’t happen as quickly as I’d hoped. The process was messy and looked worse before it ever became better 🙌 Over the past couple years I’ve been drawn to restore furniture 🛋 Pieces that were left out for trash or given away to second hand stores. I’ve found treasure in the trash 🌟 Miracles in the mess ❤️ and as I’ve restored furniture, He has restored me... .

This couch was just finished today and I couldn’t help but to snap a few pictures with it before I let it go 📸 It is for sale if you’re interested 😍 highest bidder gets it! And remember before you offer me a low price, I’m a mom of 5 that needs to pay rent 🤷‍♀️💰😁 #mystoryisntover #restoration #instagram #miracles #grace #faith #process #wednesdaywisdom #messymiracles #trusttheprocess #cancer #autoimmunedisease #heartdisease #grief #tbn #faith #soulcare

It is Well Wednesday! 💕💪

Even though most people don't want to accept a disease diagnosis, they have accepted it as a part of their life & all the changes that go with it. They haven't considered that it's a real possibility that it can be reversed. It's should not be a lifelong sentence.

The body wants to be well. The disease is simply telling you that you must change course. You must be willing to do what's necessary though and get the right information not some random advice that doesn't consider the whole body.
