Don’t you just love when amazing opportunities come your way that also include lessons to help you GROW? 🌸 ⠀
⠀

Even if it is an unexpected lesson, I do genuinely love seeing where I can expand in all areas of life and who I am. ⠀
⠀
⠀
Today, my episode of #TheBusinessBlastPodcast goes live! 🤗⠀
@tywagz and I chat about a situation that taught me a huge lesson, the importance of following your #intuition and so much more. ⠀
⠀
While that is SUPER exciting in itself, having this chat taught me another lesson. When asked my favorite book - I blanked. If any of you know me in real life, you know that I LOVE to read (and am always reading at least two books at once) 🤓 so choosing just ONE was so hard. 🤣 ⠀
⠀
When I finally remembered a (non health/wellness related) book that I love, I couldn’t remember the author’s name. 😳🙈 ⠀
A few years ago, that would have made me so upset. Now, I smile at the fact that happened to me. It shows that I’m not anywhere near perfect, that I forget things sometimes (especially when I’m taking about things I’m passionate about!) and that my perspective still deserves to be heard regardless of “mistakes”. ⠀
⠀
And so does yours. ⠀
⠀

Even if your voice shakes. Even if you forget what you’re going to say. Even if you’re scared that people won’t resonate with it: ⠀
⠀
Speak your passion and your truth loud + proud anyways. ✌🏻 ⠀
⠀
⠀
⠀
If you’re wondering what my personal 🔑 to #happiness is or advice I’d tell my younger self, definitely check out the full episode on iTunes! 💜 ⠀
⠀
⠀
(Last but not least.. now that my 🧠 is working again: the book is: Eleven Seconds by TRAVIS ROY 🏒— read it ASAP! 🙌🏻)

Here is a more in depth look at what it's like to have IBD and what we have to put up with on the regular. I hope this helps someone who needs it. 💚

Today’s physical activity brought to by my kid’s playground stroller run! I’m actually surprised at my pace since I was pushing a stroller, though this was a much flatter run than last week. The boys just want to climb on rocks and didn’t actually play on the playground equipment at all. The little one was upset that he couldn’t get on a larger rock that big brother was on! 😂 his mad faces kill me! #aswalkselfie #curearthritisstreak .

Life is good...never forget that...even when life throws everything it can at you 🌿...
•
•
Like the same car being stolen TWICE in two months, coming to a grand total of 2 break ins and 2 attempted steals if you’re keeping count 🙃 (read: go home downtown SJ, you’re drunk) I wish I was lying to you haha. My job sitch is still uncertain and getting crazier every day. I’m really not sure where we are living 3 weeks from now 🤷🏻‍♀️ (holla at me if you know a place in Los Gatos bc we’re looking to be bougie AF 🤣 but seriously...)My health has had ups and downs, still fighting bouts of fatigue. •
•
But the difference is that I’ve already been through hell and back. Chronic illness is funny like that, giving me a {{sense of eternal optimism}} 1️⃣, I have to focus on de-stressing so I don’t give myself a flare up. 2️⃣ I have been through so. much. worse. that I can endure much more and smile while doing it. 3️⃣ I have an appreciation and deep gratitude for the little things thanks to my disease 🙌🏼

This delicious breakfast bowl indicates that I have tried bringing back some nuts and seeds. I’m actually not sure what order you’re supposed to bring foods back after when doing AIP, but I know I missed my hemp hearts! We ran out of coconut milk so this was a dry “cereal” today. I also need to watch how many bananas I eat since they do contain starch. Bananas aren’t necessarily my favorite fruit, but they are easy and versatile so they end up being a go-to for me. .
What do you guys try re-introducing after AIP? How long did you stay completely AIP? .

And today we flow 😬 if only I could figure out how to use my phone better! I’m learning the key to sticking with something is loving it!! Being excited by my work outs and excited to “get on the mat” 😂 it’s so important for me. There are enough things in life that I dread doing already!!

“Life will only change when you become more committed to your dreams than you are to your comfort zone.”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Ya know what’s crazy? I stood next to the edge of the Grand Canyon yesterday! 😆Yes, I was totally panicked, yes I had a bit of anxiety and my heart was racing a million beats per second… but I did it!🙈👏🏼
⠀⠀
It was totally out of my comfort zone.. *insert something super philosophical* (ie: now I feel I can conquer the world)✨
⠀⠀
Really though, I’ll be sure to remember this feeling— accomplishment, pride, exhilaration— when I’m uncomfy with what I’m doing. Whether it be in my fitness journey, in my business or just life in general!
⠀⠀
When something is uncomfortable just remember 👉🏼 you WILL be better because of it!👏🏼Go through the obstacle, do the uncomfy stuff because success is right on the other side!!🙌🏼🦋

The @nhljets may not have won the playoffs but I had a wonderful time watching their games with my hubby! .
.
It can become so easy to get tied up in everyday life. Especially those of us ladies hustling hard everyday to become boss babes. It's easy to focus hard on our goals and loose sight of our relationships. .
.
Watching the Jets games was my husband and I's time to hang out together and connect. Even when he was away for school it still felt like I was watching the game with him.
.
.
This weekend we were even able to experience the craziness of the white out street party together! .
.
Remember it's important to be your own person. To have your own goals and to work hard at something on your own. But it's just as important to put that amount of energy into your husband or significant other and realize that the small things really do matter! ❤ this weekend's memories of rollerblade rides will stay with me forever! 
Love you @suppes204

Woahhh we’re halfway there 🎵 all my zippers are livin on a prayer 😬 Had our big anatomy scan today to check little lady’s growth and for any deformities or defects of her organs and limbs. Happy to report everything looks perfect. She was VERY cozy in there and did not want to turn for the tech to get pictures of her brain, but we finally got all the images we needed. She had hiccups and we saw her purse her lips and practice sucking. (Too adorable for me to handle). And at one point she opened her mouth wide and stuck out her tongue. The urge to pinch her little cheeks is so strong. I’ve been feeling pretty good, aside from some semi-regular headaches this week. And I think I’ve gotten a small bite from the nesting bug because I’ve been in a mood to clean, organize, and decorate everything. Daniel and I are both getting ridiculously excited and having to restrain ourselves from buying ALL the baby things. Scroll/swipe for pictures of our little ladybug and a photobomb from Charlie. #pregnancywithanostomy #crohnsdisease #crohnspregnancy #20weekspregnant #becomingthebrowns

If you missed it Sunday, I wrote a post about World IBD Day and my Crohn’s journey to date. I’m never sure how long a period of remission will last, so I’m just concentrating on feeling good right here, right now. Hope you’re feeling good, too 😊

Feeling pretty decent today!! 🙏🏻💕💜 that’s good and bad, because when I feel l like to think that I’m healthy enough to do way more than I actually can right now. Which always ends bad🙄😔 so I’m trying to still keep it minimal and rest when I can.

I've been working hard on getting myself stronger. Lately I've been putting even more effort into eating well to fuel my workouts.🏋🏼‍♀️💪🏻🍌🍗🥗
But it doesn't mean everything will go perfectly.
Had to skip crossfit today. Leave my gym bag lonely in my car and fall into bed. It's not easy to always accept.
But it helps knowing that I don't give up 🤗🙌🏻💪🏻🏋🏼‍♀️💕 #nevergiveup #keepgoing #crohnscrossfitter #crossfitterwithcrohns #crossfitnewbie #chronicillness #listeningtomygut #fightingformyhealth #crohnsdisease #fitnesswithcrohns #crohnswarrior #crohns #ibd #ibdfighter

Week 2 of prednisone taper has me waking up 30 minutes earlier with each passing day, wired mentally but fatigued physically, too restless to nap and too foggy brained to concentrate. Loss of appetite. Abdominal pain. There's still a long road ahead. In the past 12 years I've managed lingering stability off prednisone twice. I've never seen remission. I've been dependent on a 10mg prednisone dose for managing #crohnsdisease for the past 6 years. Past tapers were unsuccessful and led to flaring of #crohns symptoms. It could take months to taper off 10mg or fail trying. So much depends on my adrenal function. It'd be easy to call it quits, this is a daunting task. But I'm not stopping this train till I'm done or my body calls for a forced stop. #crohnslife #keepgoing #tryfailandtryagain #prednisoneproblems #prednisonetaper #prednisonesucks #adrenalfatigue #adrenalinsufficiency #withdrawlsarereal #motivation #quotes #instaquotes #onedayatatime #babysteps

I haven’t written anything in a long time, I’ve been unmotivated and in and out of depression and other daily life distractions. But I thought I’d share this little piece I wrote today about sickness, specifically about my experience with chronic illness. Let me know what you think of it.

It’s ok y’all. I know there are days I can’t even get out of bed to eat or  shower. Sometimes we just need to vegetate and rest our bodies and our souls. If all you did today was get up too pee, THATS OK!!! Even struggling with the same disease there are very different levels to IBD, no two cases are ever the same. So if all you did today was survive, that’s OK! Don’t allow others perception to your pain and your struggles make you feel bad for their ignorance 💜

I've felt bad the last couple of weeks with a Crohn's flare-up. Also I began threwing up yesterday once and once today too. So, I went to my Crohn's doctor today and apparently I'm not allowed Remicade/Inflectra until they've done some tests and scannings on me. So in the very near future I can look forward to both a colonoscopy in necrosis, scan if the lungs and a MRI scan. Along with a lot of blood and feces tests. So that's my life atm. Hope to get all the stuff sorted out soon. This illness sucks big time 💩

A lot of people know that I have had serious health issues for a long time now. Not many people know that I've also been struggling with my mental health as well. Well, no more hiding it. I have C-PTSD, Major Depressive Disorder, Anxiety and Dissasociative Seizures. As part of my recovery process I've finally "come out" and revealed what's really going on to family and friends. I strongly believe that my autoimmune disorders are side effects of untreated mental health problems. Now it's time to heal, mind, body and spirit. 🖤

Service is apart of my life everyday. When I’m not wearing a crown and sash, I work in Human Resources for the Kroger Company. For the past 7 months, I have been traveling the state of Indiana providing economic stability for Hoosiers with a career at Kroger. During this time, I was able to provide jobs to over a thousand people and 471 of them being those who lost their job when Marsh closed. I have loved being able to #StandUp4 people in this capacity.

Today’s workout tested me. Several times, I needed to remind myself of my goals: ➡️To keep my Crohn’s disease in remission ➡️To be healthy and strong
➡️To be active and vibrant as I age
➡️To inspire others ➡️To be a good role model for my kids

Those goals....that is what kept me going today. 
What goal are you reaching for?

Thankful. Grateful. Blessed 💕

Best day date celebrating another school year coming to an end ☀ I love that we celebrate everything. It's who we are. It's who we've BECOME.
.
When I reflect over the last 12 years, I wonder which year made me love him this much. Was it my breast cancer scare at 23? Was it the complicated pregnancy with Mild? The year I had to re-learn how to walk? Bed rest with Wild? Was it the four years Bliss slept ON TOP of me? Or when Mild caught a virus and went into liver failure and almost died? Was it dengue fever (aka breakbone fever 😭) or melanoma??
.
Honestly, it's all of it and none of it. He's the same person when life is smooth sailing ⛵ and NOT. He's my rock and my very best friend. Thank you Jesus for this man, and YOU hubs for standing by me in all of these seasons; as I write about it now; and in all our adventures to come.
.
Especially thank you for being SO PRESENT as we managed life with Wild this school year 🙏 We did it. We have a kindergartener!!!!!! (And a second grader - but he's easy so you get no extra credit 😂) Yay for summer!!!!! #TeamMagnano #AutismMom

Is it going to poison me!!! 😂 I was approached by a nice lady that wanted me to distribute her #itworks products she really kindly sent me a load of samples as I had never tried any of these products and obviously I can’t sell any of these things if I don’t know how it works what it is or even if it works so today is the day I got the products...... I will be trying and using these products and I will be posting reviews after my operation on Friday to have some cancerous cells removed from my crevices #cervicalcancer #cervicalcancerawareness so #staytuned #followmyjourney #followmyweightlossjourney #honestreview #honestreviews #crohnsdisease #cervicalcancer #cancerawareness #getyoursmearsladies #smeartestssavelives #smearleader #joinmeonmyjourney #transformation

Werkin a new fashion accessory for the next week in an attempt to rule cardiology things out in the “why do I keep fainting” mystery. The plus side is that heart monitor tech seems to have come VERY far in recent years and this baby is tiny and water-resistant.
