This week I had my first appointment with a holistic and functional medicine doctor (who also has 35 years experience in internal medicine). This is something I've been wanting to do for a very long time. I have to say- I wish I had gone sooner. . One of the things he asked me to do is read this book before I see him again in two weeks. I feel like I am in the middle of quite a few books right now, but homework is homework! 😊 . If you are someone who is struggling with an autoimmune disease, leaky gut, chronic anything really....pick this up! The information I've read in just the last few days has been great! It also includes a plan for how to heal your body and get well. I wish I had found this book sooner! . @amymyersmd . . #thyroidhealing #thyroid #thyroiddisease #hashimotos #hashimotosdisease #organic #cleaneating #healthyfood #healthyeating #healthylifestyle #heal #autoimmunedisease #autoimmunepaleo #ivf #infertility #fertility #endometriosis #chronicillness #chronicpain #aip #paleo #guthealth #toxinfree #antiinflammatory #paleodiet #chronicfatigue #leakygut #guthealth #inflamation #disease #autoimmune
Mini #Mudder in #training 🏃🏻‍♂️👧🏻🧡🖤🧡 - I have never hid my illness from my child; I don’t mind when she asks questions or watches me insert sites. Someone asked the other day, if we have a plan in place if I am alone with her and I #seize ; terrifyingly enough I didn’t...until now. She’s only 3 but it’s time to practice calling 9-1-1👨🏻‍🚒👮🏾‍♀️👮🏿‍♂️👨🏼‍🚒

The girls scored a coconut yoghurt each for dessert tonight! Found these @coyo_is_coconuts sachets at woolies and they have some delicious flavours 😍 My babies were super satisfied! 👌🏻
For years, I used to be someone who was out of bed pretty much as soon as they woke up. Not one for ‘lie-ins’, I would be thinking about everything I had to do that day and how lying in bed was a waste of my day. But now? Now I cherish all and any time I can rest in bed! I don’t get a chance to lie-in often so when I do, I don’t rush to get up at all! #tired #chronicillness #chronicallyill #chronicallyfabulous #hypo #hypothyroid #hypothyroidie #hypothyroidism #underactivethyroid #thyroid #chronicfatiguesyndrome #chronicfatigue #thyroiddisease #thyroidwarrior #thyroidproblems #hashis #hashimotos #hashiwarrior #hashimotosthyroiditis #hashimotosdisease #hashimotoswarrior #adrenals #adrenalfatigue #autoimmune #autoimmunedisease #thyroidawareness #spoonie #spoonies #theinvisiblehypothyroidism

The impact my #dogs have had on my life is hard to verbalize 🌱 As many of you know, I've recently been diagnosed with #celiacdisease on top of already having #hashimotos (#thyroiddisease ) 🌸 My life went from careless to careful REAL quick when my body was in pain, I did not want to get out of bed and LOST interest in almost everything. 😴 My dogs were there for me 🌧 through the first winter I spent away from home in #montreal 🏡 They got me out of the house. They cuddled me when I needed it. I ADORE my dogs. They are my BEST FRIENDS. They loved me when I didn't love me. They don't judge. They don't give up. They really do love unconditionally. 💕 #bestfriend #family #furfamily #animals #dogs #fureverhome #dogsofinstagram #shibasofinstagram #shibainu #adventuredog #ruffwear #puppy #puppylove #doglife #support #selfcare #selflove #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #therapy #dogtherapy #hikingwithdogs #california #explorecalifornia #depression #anxiety
Had my first Ningxia Red today. oh yeah, energy the healthy way. 🤗😊😁😊🤗 🌱🌾🌿🌱🍃
Living alone in a new city means I have to find more ways to take care of me. ⠀ ⠀ It means buying a super cute new mug and taking a stroll on the beach. It means long bathes, reading and spending more time with myself than usual. It means that when hard feelings come up there aren’t many people there to comfort me. ⠀ ⠀ I have to face me... and even though I’ve done heaps and heaps of work, there is always more. There is dusty corners I must sweep and people I must make peace with. ⠀ ⠀ I’m going through an intense time of healing and rediscovering who I am. For once in my life, I’m not ashamed to be the spiritual girl. I’m open with everyone I meet about what I’m up to and what I love. If you don’t like, that’s great. If you do, even better 😂⠀ ⠀ I am releasing the guilt on doing whatever I need to feel and be my very best. Some mornings I wake up and do yoga and try to meet new people while others I lay in bed most of the day. It’s all a journey and I’m learning along the way. ⠀ ⠀ Wherever you are in your path, give yourself some god damn grace. We are all doing the best we can.
I pushed my #legdayworkout until Friday night because that’s how cool kids jump into the weekend, right?! 🤷🏻‍♀️ In all seriousness, there’s nothing that could have prepared me for this workout. Usually #doms set in about 24 - 48 hours later for me. But the soreness is creeping in already. I guess that doesn’t count as DOMS if it’s not delayed?!?! Regardless, I feel like Wonder Woman after conquering that workout. Can’t wait to use the handrails and handicap stalls all weekend 🙌🏻
Happy Flex Friday💪 Week 1 is done, WHAT???? I absolutely love this program so far. Shorter workouts, so it's easy to fit them into our busy schedules. I'm feeling sore so I know they are working👊 Can't wait to see what the next 7 week's bring💪 Let's do this👊 . . . . . #strongmommy #bodyafterbabies #strongmom #momofboys 💙 #boymomma #boymomsrock #hotmessmom #busymom #busymama #momofthreeboys #momof3 #floridamom #lifedailymoms #joyfulmoms #boymomlife 💙 #momlifebelike #hypothyroidismsucks #thyroiddisease #anxietysucks #strongereveryday 💪 #strongasamother #workoutfromhome #couplesworkout #coupleswhotrain #believeinyou #believeinyourself
Workout when your tired! Usually no one says this, but when your in a slump or still have some day left to go and do things try doing a quick workout and see how you feel afterwards! It might just be your go-to from now on when you need a “pick-me-up”. Did a little 20 min weights for the upper body and a good shower. Now I’m ready to go hangout with some good friends! ☺️ • • • • • #hashimotos #momsliftweights #mombod #glutenfree #autoimmune #turbofire #shoulderworkout #autoimmunedisease #thyroidwarrior #mommymuscle #challengemylimits #feelgreat #igotthis #saygrace #fitfamily #grateful #thyroiddisease #workout #tiuteam #tiuaz #hypothyroid #hypothyroidism #jesussaves #lovelife #fip #blessed #nevergiveup #nomatterwhat

It has been a month since I started my journey, and I am so glad that I finally said yes. Yes to committing to myself and pushing my excuses to the side. In the past month I have become a happier, stronger person. My why is not only for me to be happy and healthy for myself but also do it for my family. They deserve the best me! Added bonus to bettering myself is that yesterday I also received my first paycheck for this side hustle. Yep, I get paid to help other people! Curious on how you can get in on this DM me and let's talk about your goals! #momof3 #strongmom #stronger #happy #healthy #hashimotos #thyroiddisease #bethebestyou
Legs and HIIT. I think my face explains it all. That was brutal and awesome at the same time. But stairs will be a problem 😳. I am excited about seeing progress, because I definitely need more flexibility as I was losing form on some moves. Week one is in the books and even though my upper body is still sore from earlier this week, I’m feeling pretty awesome, even if my face doesn’t portray that 😂 #workout #liift4 #legday #fitness #progress #weights #liftandhiit #hiit #dead #thyroiddisease #hashimotos #pcosjourney #pcos #autoimmunedisease #adrenalfatigue
I have been keeping a EPIC-GAMECHANGING secret with my Biz partner @cin_day38 that effects our BIG goals for this year, our team and YOU....and the only person who can keep a secret around here is my little!! Announcing bright and early tomorrow on my IG stories at 8AM!! Til then, 🤐 See ya there! 😜✨ . #teampowerempire 🌈
The longer you hang in there, the greater the chance that something will happen in your favor. No matter how hard it seems, the longer you persist, the more likely your success! I’m feeling beyond grateful that I get to treat my husband to a weekend away for the first time! This is just the first of many!! ❤️
Listen to that little voice! We will never give up our quest for better health! Together, we can do this! 📷: @livelikeitsthewknd #chronicloveclub
STOP PUSHING YOUR AGENDA ON PEOPLE. . I get it, your opinions and feelings matter; everyone's do. . Today, a client expressed her frustrations about the way people make her feel about being vegetarian. . You know what I mean... The looks, the giggles, the questions, the discrimination, the judgement. . Kinda like peeping other people's carts at the grocery store..you know what I'm talking about. 👀👀 . Why we do what we do is our business. What we do & how we do it is the best way we know for US; not for YOU. That is not a hard concept to grasp. . I'm guilty of this too; I think we all are at some point. . But, it's important to recognize that the discrimination & judgement is a direct reflection of the person dishing it. . It comes from a place of pain, insecurities, suffering, and most times the desire to better one's health. . This doesn't mean that asking health questions marks us as insecure & dumb. I believe we're all here to serve one another, but there's a DISTINGUISHABLE difference that all humans (especially us empath gals) recognize right off the bat. . So before you push your own beliefs & agenda on someone, think about why you're having that feeling & urge to do so in the first place. . And as hard as it is to be on the receiving side, return a confident (because you are!) answer laced with pure love & compassion, because those people need it the most. . I'm constantly on this mission & (hopefully) encouraging others to do the same. . Are you on this mission with me??
And that’s a wrap on this week’s workout schedule! Just 4 workouts per week and each is under 40 minutes...and don’t be fooled by the seemingly easy schedule, those 3 recovery days each are necessary! This program is pushing and building my strength so much and it’s just week 1! And 3 recovery days allows me plenty of time to fully recover from he hard workouts AND get the extra rest I need while my thyroid levels get back to normal! . If you want more info, hit me up! It’s not too late to get in the test group...yet!!! . . . . . . #newprogram #fridayvibes #4daysaweek #workoutmotivation #thyroiddisease #hashimotosthyroiditis

Day 6: Part 4 ✌️✌️✌️✌️✌️✌️
Pure BeautyTalk!!! 🌱🌱🌱🌱I've been using Éminence Organic Skincare and really loving these product. I don't endorse many products. I first research them and make sure that they’re  pure and don't have any cancer causing ingredients. Then I make sure they really work.This is the 1st line that I have found that delivers true results. Their 🌱Green Stone Crop Cleansing Oil (amazing!!! )I put it on right after I wash my face and then rinse it off. Its hydrating, moisturizing and drenches your cells with vitamins and nutrients. 🌱"Remember what you put on your body is just as important as what you put in your body" - Juliet Mitchel.  Please zoom in on the picture so you can see my skin.

Day 6: Part 2
Day 6: Part 1 Work is one of my number 1 triggers for anxiety. It makes no sense because I currently love my job and my boss and there is literally 0 reason to be stressed out when I am there. I think part of the reason is the added pressure of having to appear “ok” in public when really I am not feeling “ok” at all. Here’s 5 short videos of my struggle with getting myself to work. Of course some days are better then others and it’s not as difficult. Instead of focussing on the times I didn’t make it in, I now think of all the times I have and I use this as strength to push through.
13 weeks post op 🙌🏽 I have a keloid on my incision site and the area where my JP drain was inserted but it’s okay.. just a reminder of my second chance at a better life. #thyroidscar #thyroiddisease #thyroidectomy #thyroid #autoimmunedisease
• • Not even going to lie: today has been LAZY! I woke up not feeling it 👎🏻 I worked from my couch today. I binged Greys Anatomy in the background [for the millionth time]. I read some comments about how tough LIIFT4 leg day was and I was a little scared [ @joelfreemanfitness ]. I started to come up with excuses why I shouldn’t work out. 🖤 BUT I got off my 🍑 and I drank my go go juice and I hit PLAY! GUESS WHAT?! I feel freaking amazing and I feel like a boss for pushing through every part of that workout. I showed up and made myself proud. What did you do on this FRIYAY to make yourself proud of you? . . . #progressnotperfection #autoimmunedisorder #thyroidwarrior #thyroiddisease #roadtowellness #higgymama #married #girlmom #gravesdisease #overcomingillness #positivevibes #empoweredwomenempowerwomen #texasgirlsdoitbetter

👉🏽👉🏽swipe 👉🏽👉🏽 Today I got do something, that I never expected I’d be able to do. I got to dump my hypothyroidism pills in the trash can! After nearly 4 years of taking levothyroxine, I’m totally done with it. It’s an unbelievable feeling! I, like many hypothyroidism suffers, had no clue, you could even be taken off the Meds. I had to convince my doctor by changing my lifestyle, and dropping 70lbs, and totally proving her wrong that it could be done. I know there are others that have done it as well and congrats to you! So thankful I found the #ketogenic lifestyle, it’s been a major help in achieving this. Busting my butt day in and out in the gym, has also been a close second! Just here to show it can be done people! Don’t sit back and except your Aliment if it’s something you can do about it, try your best to not have to live on pills forever. Rooting for all my fellow thyroid warriors out there! 🦋 #hypothyroidism . . . . #hypothyroid #thyroidproblems #thyroidhealing #thyroiddisease #thyroidhealth #healthandwellness #fattofit #obesetobeast #weightlosstransformation #ketotransformation #keto #ketogains #ketosis #ketolife #lchf #lowcarbhighfat #igfit #igfitfam #igfitness

💚Gut Health💚 I’ve been drinking these organic super greens for about two weeks now, and my gut health has significantly improved! Living with hypothyroidism i’ve had lots of gut issues over the past three years. These super greens make my tummy happy. I feel so much better. I have more energy, better digestion, and no bloating. 🌱 31 organic plant extracts, probiotics, prebiotics, and digestive enzymes all in one scoop! and the best part....it doesn’t taste like you pulled some grass out of your backyard and blended it up.😝these greens actually taste good! so good that i look forward to drinking them every morning. 😋 thankful for @eve_fitchick for introducing me to @biohmhealth 💚 #biohm #biohmhealth #supergreens #prebiotics #probiotics #guthealth #microbiome #wellness #digestivehealth #guthealthmatters #hypothyroidism #hypothyroid #thyroiddisease #thyroidhealth #instahealth #fitnessjourney #weightloss #fitchick
Unfortunately, many people who have #autoimmune #hashimotos disease with #hypothyroidism learn the hard way that healing this #thyroid condition is not as easy as "just taking a pill every day." Conventional medicine doesn't offer any treatment for Hashimoto's but it doesn't mean that there is nothing you can do to get better. In my own Hashimoto's journey I tried many different things, some of them worked and some of them didn't. If you would like to learn about my experiences with hypothyroidism and Hashimoto's that will save you years of "trial and error" go to http://outsmartdisease.com/hashi or just click the link in my Instagram profile bio @outsmartdisease

Skin Issues Skin conditions come down to the medical issues with the liver. Virus in the liver feed off high levels of toxic copper & other pesticides. When the virus feeds of these poisons it releases potent dermatoxins which float up to the skin causing severe rashes, flaking, cracking & itching. Ideally our livers would filter out these dermatoxins like other debris, however when the EBV is overloading the liver and rest of the body the normal detox process gets interrupted which is why these toxins try to leave through the skin. The worse off the liver is the worst the Eczema & Psoriasis. For more information check out my video on IGTV.

It’s Friday and we are about to take off for the weekend! First things first though. I NEVER skip me! This was never who I used to be. When I was overweight and unhealthy the first thing I would have thought about was what snacks could we pack for the long drive. That is no longer who I am. I have changed my habits and my lifestyle. That is all it takes is a change in your mindset!! Once you change that.. ANYTHING is possible. You can do hard things.. You just need to start and let go of all your excuses! That my friends is where the magic lies!! ❤️
Nothing good comes easy! These are the kinds of things your parents or teachers may have said when you were younger; aphorisms from mentors and coaches. But there is a beautiful simplicity in how true they are, especially when it comes to your physical and mental health. You get the results you work for, not the ones you hope for. We hope you’re staying motivated, determined, and supported. Remember those people who were rooting for you, thank the people who still are.

It’s Friday! And since I haven’t done a #fridayintroductions in a long time, I wanted to reach out and say Heyo 👋🏼 to some of the newer connections I’ve made here! To start, this picture is most definitely not in real time. I’m currently sitting in my back yard, chugging coffee as fast as I can so no bugs end up inside my cup. Anyone else have an enormous amount of bugs in their yard this year? We’ve sprayed down our entire property 4x this year already and they keep coming back 😩 anyways.... A little bit about me: 🏠 I was born and raised in the only suburb completely surrounded by Chicago #islandinthecity 👪 I’m married to my high school sweetheart and we have an almost 6 year old son 💇🏼‍♀️I am/was a hairstylist for 12 years before becoming a #wahm 💌 I design custom packaging decor for other small businesses and makers and I don’t use photoshop- I have NO CLUE how to use it 🤣 . 🐶 I’m allergic to dogs but have 3 fur babies 👩🏼‍🍳 I can’t cook or bake. Thank goodness for my hubby! 📝 I need to write out to do lists for everything 🧘🏼‍♀️Yoga newbie, I would love any and all advice from #yogisofinstagram ✅ after 3 years, I’m finally in remission after being diagnosed with #GravesDisease 📲 I am the worst at reaching out to people. Idk why, maybe because I’ve been pretty shy my whole life. It literally pains me to do it lol but once that door is open, I don’t shut up... • So if you’re still reading this... let’s connect! I’d love to get to know more about you and what you do!
Out of Office... Well, figuratively anyway! I was all set to travel with my family down to Ensenada, Mexico this weekend for a cousin’s wedding and some R&R. But coming home to a very sick kitty yesterday changed that. 😿 __________⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So, since my schedule was cleared anyway, I’m going to make the most of a much-needed staycation this weekend while I play nurse to Myah. Sure, I’m disappointed to miss out on the fun and celebration, but a cat mom’s gotta do what a #catmom ’s gotta do! And I’m glad I can be here for her. 😽⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ __________⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Now, the challenge is going to be to keep the vacation vibe and not end up working! 😬 What are your plans for the weekend?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ _______________⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #staycation #plottwist #mindfulness #mindfulnesspractitioner #mindfulnesscoach #mindsetcoach #intuitiveliving #autoimmuneentrepreneur #autoimmuneartist #spooniepreneur #fempreneur #cultivatejoy #leadwithlove #autoimmunedisease #autoimmunewarrior #chronicillness #chronicdisease #invisibleillness #thyroiddisease #gravesdisease #hashimotosdisease #lupuswarrior #crohnswarrior #ibdwarrior #lymewarrior #multiplesclerosis #highachievingspoonie #highachievingwoman
#Repost @theinvisiblehypothyroidism (@get_repost ) ・・・ Just a reminder that taking care of yourself is not selfish. If you don’t take care of yourself, you won’t be much good for anything else! Today I usually work for myself from 10am to 3pm, but I woke up at 11am after a hard week with my health and I’m still not out of bed. I’ll get the essentials done for my work but I’m got to take care of myself today. 🦋💙 #chronicillness #chronicallyill #chronicallyfabulous #hypo #hypothyroid #hypothyroidie #hypothyroidism #underactivethyroid #thyroid #chronicfatiguesyndrome #chronicfatigue #thyroiddisease #thyroidwarrior #thyroidproblems #hashis #hashimotos #hashiwarrior #hashimotosthyroiditis #hashimotosdisease #hashimotoswarrior #adrenals #adrenalfatigue #autoimmune #autoimmunedisease #thyroidawareness #spoonie #spoonies #theinvisiblehypothyroidism #mentalhealth
Just the average morning routine, right? 🤔🤷‍♀️ This is MY normal morning routine. These little pills help my body to function. This is what it looks like to live without a thyroid. Ten years ago I was diagnosed with Graves Disease, it's an autoimmune disease. Treatment options were discussed and it was best determined that I should have my thyroid ablated and that would mean that I would be on thyroid meds for the rest of my life but it also meant being able to have a healthy pregnancy one day down the road. What they don't tell you is how you'll feel afterwards or how I packed on almost 75lbs in a matter of 9-10 months. Luckily, I found a great specialist who helped me find which dose keeps me in the normal range so that my body can function almost like a normal person's would, with a few minor exceptions, that I learned to deal with. A woman in my meeting once saw me dosing after I weighed in and inquired about what I was taking. She assumed that thyroid meds were the reason I was finding such great success on program and that's it's why I was losing weight. Part of me wondered if she was right. The next time I saw my specialist, I asked him, and he told me, "Those pills level the playing field, they help your body function so you don't shut down and slowly die. If all it took was thyroid pills to make people drop weight, they'd be prescribed to people all over. Tell your "friend" that all your hard work and dedication is the key to your success and quit thinking it's as simple as a little pill." I love that guy. So, if you're wondering if success is found in a little pill, it's not. Take your 🍑on a walk, eat something good for you 🍏🍌🥕, drink plenty of 💦, get adequate sleep 😴, and love yourself 😍🤗. Don't find short cuts, find your normal, healthy routine. #weightlossjourney #weightlossprogress #wwtx #175charmbylaborday #wwteachers #wwgood #wwdfw #gunningforthenewyear #ww #weightwatchers #thyroid #thyroiddisease #butterflyeffect #gravesdisease #autoimmunewarrior #extremeweightloss #extremeweightlossjourney

Meet my man. We’ve been married over 17 years. A dear friend took this pic a month ago, and I love it. Marriage can be hard. Add an autoimmune disease to that, and man, hard is an understatement on so many levels. It was difficult to open up and communicate with my husband about what was really going on with my body, and what had been going on for years, and was getting progressively worse. One of my identities has always been that I am strong, that I push through, that I am a beast. That was part of the woman my husband fell in love with. I was afraid to admit what was going on inside. I pushed and fought for years until my body would not let me anymore. Sure, I knew something was wrong and even went to the doctors periodically with my symptoms, but I would give up when the doctor would tell me I am healthy and everything looks good. I regret not pushing for answers and tests sooner. I regret not communicating with my husband sooner. Autoimmune disease, in my case, is usually an invisible disease. Through trial and error, I’ve learned that I need to communicate with my husband daily and let him know how my symptoms are and what my needs are realistically. That doesn’t make me less of a wife, or a weaker woman. It makes me real. It makes me honest. It strengthens our marriage because if I’m being honest, I was not fooling him all those years. He is closest to me. He knew something was hurting me and dragging me down. He loves me and wants to know what is going on and how he can help without having to guess. Sometimes it’s as simple as holding me, sometimes it’s watching a funny movie so we can laugh, sometimes it’s grocery shopping, sometimes it’s massaging my legs during a flare, sometimes it’s going on an evening walk with me, sometimes it’s nothing at all. I cannot stress enough the importance of communication, and being open and honest about what is going on and your needs...and especially asking him how he is doing, how he is feeling, and what his needs are. As hard as it is to experience an autoimmune disease, I could not imagine how hard it would be to see the person I love most in this world suffer, and to be unable to fix it.
The second class of the thyroid program is now available. Thank you for everyone that participated and still joining in the first class. Your results were amazing and if it wasn’t for you I wouldn’t be here. You allowed me to see that helping others with this disease is truly my passion. So let’s further put healing journey together in this next class! All the information about the class in the bio link!! 🦋
