  • Peace out✌!!!
.
After a short whirlwind romance with Drain the Rock Johnson. And a slightly longer relationship with Henry the Hematoma the last 2.5 months, I'm finally free! No more drains, no more poking and prodding, no more #drainchic (that 80s outfit is staying though😂)
.
But in all seriousness, I'm hoping this is finally it. That Henry won't decide to make an appearance again. And if he does, then surgery is up next on the table.
.
I wish I could say why this all came about. Could be a tear in the tissue or a ruptured blood vessel, the complications of breast reconstruction and flap surgeries. Or just the fact that I seem to be one of those rare unicorns🦄

  • The year 2010 I moved to China. After approximately one year of living as a foreign student in a Chinese high school, I came home a completely different person. It was a tough year in many aspects.

I was completely unprepared when it came to having to sit still for eight hours in 0 degrees during the winter months every school day. See, the schools in Shanghai at that time (what is it like nowadays?) did not have any heating system and the brick walls and open windows did not protect us from the cold either. Of course, I got ill. This exposure took quite a toll on my physical health, and as a consequence also my mental health. It would take years until I recovered.

My bodily functions seemed to successively slow down and I found my daily life difficult to cope with. Headaches, fatigue, drowsiness and post-exertional malaise became my new life. No one seemed to be able to explain what was really going on and I suppose I will never know.

Luckily, as I have already mentioned above, I recovered. After about 3 years of my condition progressively worsening, I noticed that I was becoming stronger and less tired.  At first I was scared to challenge myself. I was still worried that if I exerted myself too much, perhaps I would end up even more exhausted than before. Just like how it had been during these previous three years. As my thoughts were proved to be wrong, again and again, I reclaimed my freedom one challenge at a time.

Looking back at it, I am still grateful for the experiences and memories that I made in China. I visited many places, met a lot of people, improved my Chinese (now almost forgotten) and found new perspectives. China taught me a lot about myself and the world. I hope to return to Shanghai one day if only to say hello and learn how we both have changed since we last met.

Bring it on, 2020!

  • That one time when I was a page 3 girl....Leading up to the 10th anniversary of the 2003 Canberra Firestorm I was working on a memoir and project for disaster survivors.  Juggling my own trauma was a fine line.  I certainly wasn’t prepared for the tidal wave realisation that so many others were also struggling.  So many people spoke to me privately about it, everyone thinking living this way was just the new ‘normal’. The weight of feeling all alone with no one hearing or helping us nearly took me out.  If there is one good thing coming out of the current bushfire crisis it is that it has opened up the conversation again.  As crazy as it sounds (now that it’s another 7 years down the track) we need to be having these conversations more than ever.
Personally...I worked hard to resolve my PTSD symptoms.  Something I never thought I would be free of, but I am - living proof that it is possible!  Honestly, it had got pretty bad and if I could get a second chance at life from there, I’m convinced that anyone can.
Sure, the last few months have been hard, but overall I am doing pretty well.  I don’t know why they use the term ‘recovery’ after disaster.  In so many ways there is no recovering what was lost.  There is only BUILDING and CREATING an entirely new life and sometimes identity too.
As long as I have a voice I will be advocating for the #suddenlyhomeless whether it is literal and/or emotional loss they are navigating, I want them to know there is more than surviving, there is more than recovering...then end game must be to rise from the ashes of what once was and to have hope that they can and will one day THRIVE again ❤️ .

  • Last “get to know me as a human, not a brand” post for today: There is rarely a day when I do not cry. Not because I’m sad, but because I’m alive. In recovery, I’m more in touch with my feelings than ever. Life is so beautiful. And hard. And messy. And everything. What about you? Any fellow crybabies out there?

  • New bike fit. New shoes. New saddle. First bike ride in 4 months. That’s what a torn hamstring will do to you. Excited to test out my hamstring to see if more cycling is in my near future. #teamsparkle

I'm not much of a New Years resolutioner because if I want to change or do something, I don't wait. But it just so happened back surgery lined up with the New Year and since then, I've felt like a got a lot of the old me back. Sure I probably won't ever pilot an attack helicopter or squat 600lbs again, nor want to, but I want to do things, again. 2019 I basically just waited to get better and hit pause on life. My coping mechanism became video games and binge watching Netflix because I couldn't and wouldn't, do much else. Chronic pain is siege warfare, it breaks you down slowly over time and really wears you down. Recovering from it takes almost as much time BUT for the first time in a long time I feel, better.  Still have a long road ahead of me but I have an amazing wife and family supporting me and most importantly, I have my kids. Today Elliott did a 2.5 mile walk with me and right after this picture he said, "Daddy, I'm happy". And as long as I can help him feel that way, that's all that matters. Simply by being present.

  • Hola, cómo están? Yo estoy de vuelta a mi casa después del cumple de mi amigo. Cenamos a las 7:30!!!! Fue un gran reto para mí, moví mis piernas mientras comía y me quedé sin uñas por comérmelas. Comimos hamburguesas de soya (lq mía era mitad de una marraqueta, la hamburguesa, lechuga, tomate y PALTA!!!) Sentí que era mucho y casi lloré y mi mamá tuvo que ir por mí. Me puso tan ansiosa ver cómo le echaban harina a las hamburguesas y el aceite... Pero estubieron tan ricas LPM. Además me dieron jugo de piña que por mis papilas gustativas deduzco que tenía azúcar. Fue definitivamente un reto para mí, me terminé sintiendo culpable pero disfruté... Espero para la próxima poder controlar la culpa y ansiedad

  • Well, the trip is officially over and it's time to get back to the grind. What an amazing trip with so many memories that I will cherish forever. Sometimes life throws you some curveballs and it's about looking forward to what's in front of you and being present for all the positive things in your life. I can get caught up in a pity party, resentment or blame game but the only person that hurts is me. I lose out on the possibility of the lessons and beauties that are around me always! Just need to be in the now and do the next best right thing. I have faith that when the time is right, I will be presented with a path, and when I'm spiritually awake, I can see the path and choose today to walk in the direction of betterment and drop my ego. I am so grateful to be living this life of recovery and with a pretty kick ass partner by my side!! ALOHA! Until next time Maui!! 🏄‍♀️🏄‍♀️😎😎🤙🤙 #recovery #sobriety #itworksifyouworkit #happyjoyousandfree #soberwarrior #spirituality #powerofnow #maui #beaches #hawaii #healthyliving

  • Love a good mocktail 🤤 @thehansenlife with @get_repost
・・・
Mocktails. Surprisingly, a controversial subject! It can be a temptation or a trigger for some, but for me, it makes me feel included. It doesn’t make me want to drink alcoholic bevies. Before you get all “Why not just drink a cocktail with alcohol” on me, hear me out! Drinking a mocktail is like having a fake Christmas tree. You want to participate in the activities but you don’t want all the clean up.* For me, drinking alcohol comes with a lot of cleaning up, which is why I’ve given it up!
Ya’ll there are 3 delicious mocktail recipes live on my blog RIGHT NOW! I also checked another #gruvichallenge off the list 🤘🏽👊🏽

  • Desayuno:
• Caldito de patas de pollo con papita.
Porción de sandía

Almuerzo:
• Carne, arroz, guiso de berenjena y aguacate.
• Porción de Sandía.
Vasito de jugo de banano.

Cena:
• Burritos de avena con huevo, queso, espinaca y maíz.
• Taza de café con leche.

Extras que tuve en el día:
• 2 Mandarinas
• Un cuarto de galleta.

Experiencia:
Hoy fue un día bastante calmado, comí carne de nuevo, después de hace tiempo, por miedo y disgusto, ya que le había perdido el interés, pero decidí aceptar el día de hoy, estaba blandita, entonces fue más fácil comerla para mí, así que fue un nuevo progreso. Quiero recalcar el hecho de que hice el guiso de berenjena y la cena, me está gustando demasiado cocinar, voy aprendiendo nuevas recetas. 💜

No fui al gimnasio porque no me sentía con muchos ánimos, prefiero estar con mi mamá el día de hoy, mañana retomaré mi rutina. 🐻

  • Si vis pacem, para bellum
__
A Latin phrase from the 4th or 5th century AD which translates to “if you want peace,  prepare for war”
__
Now there are people that probably read just the translation and are shaking their heads right now. If that is the case this page isn’t for you. That’s fine you are entitled to your opinions and I am entitled to mine.
__
This phrase isn’t promoting violence at all.  Rather it is saying that the most effective way to ensure peace is to be prepared, armed and ready to defend.
__
This year more than anything I want first responders and everyone to please take their health and mental health seriously.  Work on you, stay ready and more importantly stay safe.

  • 💫 Foods from today:
- Oatmeal w fruit.
- Chicken w salad, carrots, and salsa.
- (Unpictured) Oatmeal w ginger.
- Meatloaf w salad and mashed potatoes.
- (Unpictured) Rebenadas cream sandwich.
.
I've been researching mindfulness as part of my therapy homework. I'm encouraged by the fact that there's a scientific basis for it - that it's not jst some fanciful bit of woo-woo nonsense. I also ordered an inexpensive journal filled w various exercises which will hopefully keep me from getting burned out on the same few techniques. It's not as tho I've never heard of mindfulness before, but I think it's good for me to {focus} on it. I've never rlly given it a fair chance. I'll do it for a day or two and then forget, so the benefits don't have much of an opportunity to accumulate.
.
Also, I gained a tiny bit of weight since making the decision to eat a little more. I'm trying to be okay w it. Normally, I'd be like "fvck this!!" and I'd revert right back to what I was doing, but I'm going to tryyy to give it a few more days (and then a few more, etc). I promised myself that I wanted to give things a chance, so that's what I want to do.
.
Oh, and I actually SLEPT last night. It's not where I'd like it to be - my racing thoughts still make it difficult to fall asleep / get back to sleep - but it's better than what I was experiencing. At least I'm not watching hrs & hrs of YouTube jst to keep the chatter at bay 💫

    Also, I gained a tiny bit of weight since making the decision to eat a little more. I'm trying to be okay w it. Normally, I'd be like "fvck this!!" and I'd revert right back to what I was doing, but I'm going to tryyy to give it a few more days (and then a few more, etc). I promised myself that I wanted to give things a chance, so that's what I want to do.
    .
    Oh, and I actually SLEPT last night. It's not where I'd like it to be - my racing thoughts still make it difficult to fall asleep / get back to sleep - but it's better than what I was experiencing. At least I'm not watching hrs & hrs of YouTube jst to keep the chatter at bay 💫

  • Last #marathon post for a while, I promise.
.
.
The past week has been a whirlwind of zooming from place to place, standing in line after line, pushing my body to its limits, and not resting at ALL since #wdwmarathon. So, while I’m on day five of marathon #recovery, I’m on day four of being sick. I’m upset that I’ve missed work and haven’t been able to get back into a routine, but I’m realizing how amazing it is that our bodies tell us to slow down when we need rest.
.
.
Each marathon has taught me something different, and this one taught me that rest is necessary in order to be successful. I have spent the past 18 weeks pushing my body harder than I ever thought that I could, but I didn’t allow myself to take it easy when I needed to. Among other lessons that I’ve learned: pushing your body to do hard things does NOT mean that you’re punishing yourself for something that you ate or that you’re making up for a workout that you missed. Setting a goal—a HEALTHY goal—is much different. And making time for rest is all part of the journey.
.
.
I’m so proud to have a fourth marathon in the books, but the first one that I’ve trained for with a healthy mindset, making time for rest and mindfulness when I needed it. It took a very long time for me to get to this place, and the community around me made all of the difference in the world.

  • UPPER BODY
•
Threw in a couple clips from today, but it wasn’t even a third of my workout. 🥵
Clip 1▪️Benching with 30’s is progressing nicely. 5 sets of 5 was an improvement from last week. I’ll take it!
Clip 2▪️The Dumbbell Lat Raises are a Double Drop Set and they KILL. Definitely one of my favorites though. They’re paying off.
▪️Clip 3: Close Grip Seated Rows are a current favorite. Really focus on engaging the last and pulling through your elbows. It’s a wonderful burn.
•
Unsure whether tomorrow will be a rest day or not. Gonna see how I feel in the morning.
In the meantime, I’ll be alternating between binging the Aaron Hernandez docuseries on Netflix and listening to Halsey’s new album on repeat.

  • When life feels chaotic, having a support system to share with makes a huge difference. It can be therapuetic to get things off your chest, and it's a reminder that you're not alone. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Alex needed to share some things, so a new episode is out today. #linkinbio

  • I don’t want my pre-pregnancy body back. I mistreated her. I didn’t always listen when she asked for food. And I didn’t appreciate the beautiful vessel for life she was. 
Now, after 38 weeks and 5 days of growing a life inside of my body, I love her. I value her. And I am proud of her. 
In april, right before I got pregnant, I was toned and thin. I was a size 0 with flat, solid abs and chiseled arms. But I was also aching to start a family. I was yearning for my body to be able to make me a mother. And now that it has, now that I feel my daughter’s tiny kicks inside my belly, I don’t want to go back to what I looked like before. Because I am different. My body is different. What is life if not for change and growth? Whatever shape my body decides to take postpartum, I will love, value, and cherish. Because it gave me my daughter, and how could I hate something that handed me the most beautiful gift?

  • More is not always better when it comes to push yourself
__
Over training is very common and may be causing your progress to decrease or stop
__
When you are working out, you are tearing down the muscle, literally. It’s when you’re not in the gym, when the muscle is repairing, that’s where progress is made.
__
If you continually tear down the muscle 6-7 days a week with intense, hard, strenuous workouts, you body will not be able to recover
__
This is why I stress the importance of taking care of yourself outside the gym. Taking complete rest days is so important for you body & your mind. Your muscles need that time to fully recover in order to come back stronger
__
Hope everyone has an amazing weekend

  • People think that as soon as you gain a little bit of weight and start looking hEaLthIeR you’re magically cured, and nothing bothers you anymore. They can say whatever, do whatever and it won’t have an effect on you as it did.
.
.
But it doesn’t work like that, does it?
People may gain weight for several reasons, and worse, gain weight while still RESTRICTING.
Weight gain does NOT = recovery.
IT’S A MENTAL ILLNESS.
.
.
You may be weight restored or close to it but YOUR MIND IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING. And it needs to be healed too. And that takes time.
.
.
I’ve been a healthy weight since September and I’ve been realising that since then, my close friends and family seem not to care so much about the fact that I’m still sick. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying they should be on me 24/7 always asking me things- it’s actually healthy not to make it the centre of conversations every time. But they look at me, and assume I’m better & mainly free of thoughts (which I’m NOT!).
.
.
And  I feel I need to show them, ‘prove’ I’m still sick, by losing weight or engage in behaviours again. But I’ve been realising that’s my anorexia talking , and that if I always do that (as I have, unfortunately, in the past) I’ll never recover.
.
.
I guess that accepting that I do not always have to show I’m still suffering is part of healing. I know I am, but accepting it for myself, validating my ‘sickness’ by how I feel IS VALID. I do not need to show it for it to be truth.
.
.
This is hard, ngl. But I guess that’s just how recovery works. We have to motivate ourselves to get better everyday and make up/remember ourselves of the reasons we are fighting for. Even if no one truly knows how hard that feels, we do. And that should be enough to keep fighting. Because we want better. And we surely DESERVE better.
