Day three is done! Now, let me tell you a little story about this shirt, which says "When in doubt work it out." I bought this shirt because of my lack of self confidence, because of my lack of motivation, and because of my anxiety. *Trigger Warning*
One year ago this month, I made a trip to the hospital after my first major panic attack. I had had some small ones, but never one like this. I thought I was having a heart attack and I just knew that I was going to die. I had lost so much oxygen due to hyperventilating that my hands and feet were blue. I was so scared and I felt so alone, even though I was surrounded by people who cared. Just three days later I was diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety Disorder and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. However, I got the help that I needed and here I am a year later.
I'll admit that today I was very anxious. I felt like I wasn't in charge of anything. I felt on edge about everything. So, today I pick this shirt. Because here I am one year later with more self confidence, more motivation, and working through my anxiety and I am in charge of the things that I can change.
I know my story and I know how I'm going to change it. Do you? It's not just about working out your body, but also working out your mind. ❤️
🛶 Would ya look at that, we conquered the Narrows and kicked ass on all three days of our Zion adventure! Thank you to my dearest, @mcdreamymathews, for putting this trip together and taking myself and @kabayum along for the adventure! I'm going to miss it here, I've never felt so strong and alive! Waking up early every morning to explore, and truely appreciate the awesome power that radiates from these lands! Zion, I'll be back for more of you! 🛶 #zionnationalpark#daythree#finalday#thenarrows#hiking#nature#amazing#breathtaking#adventure#alive#prettykey#summer2018

#Dare2BareChallenge#DAYTHREE Today’s challenge is about breaking up with your scale, fit tech or other numerical measurement 📏 I actually don’t torture myself with any of these. What’s been my greatest torturer are the thoughts I have about what I am or am not. It can get confusing to know which feelings are authentic and which ones are coming from a false belief. The “Buti” in #butiyoga means “the cure to something hidden away or kept secret” in the Indian dialect Marathi. This challenge, even after day one, has helped me feel free of the thoughts I tortured myself with. Baring it all, physically and emotionally, has brought the darkness to the light where it can no longer exist. So instead of a breakup letter, I’m writing a forgiving letter to myself for being my worst critic, for convincing myself that I didn’t deserve to be seen or celebrated. #ACIM says that I can only have what I give. My mind created my problems and then wanted to keep them to myself until I figured them out in my head. Maybe they were never meant to be figured out, but instead shared to help at least one person feel less alone which then helped me feel less alone. Thanks to IG I can connect with the #butitribe who are all fueling each other to love themselves. My heart is leading me somewhere and took the lead this week. My mind may take over again at some point but here’s a #notetoself on how quickly you can uplift yourself by not falling into your own mind tricks.

Headaches are one of the most common causes of pain and missed days of work.🤯 But what are the key signs that a headache might be due to dehydration?
Dehydration headaches, can be easily treated and avoided. 🥛When the body is dehydrated, the brain can temporarily contract or shrink from fluid loss. 😯This mechanism causes the brain to pull away from the skull, causing pain and resulting in a dehydration headache.
Once rehydrated, the brain plumps up and returns to its normal state, relieving the headache.😀 These type headaches can feel like a dull headache or an intense migraine.🤕 Pain from a dehydration headache can occur at the front, back, side, or all over the head.🤔 When you first start getting a headache try treating it with a bottle of water.💦If you have been hot or sweating make it a bottle with electrolytes.💫 #waterchallenge#daythree
