4 weeks post an colectomy operation I’m back in the gym, admittedly was only walking on the treadmill but you have to start somewhere.

Baklalı Enginar 👌🏻
Baharın en güzel hediyelerinden biri enginardır. Hele ki zeytinyağlı, bol soğan-sarımsaklı ve özellikle de baklalıysa 🤤 Kısık ateşte sotelediğim soğan ve sarımsakları enginar çanaklarına dolduruyorum, üstlerine de bakla, kısık ateşte uzun sürede pişmeli. Vee dereotu eklediğiniz anda yemeğimiz tamamdır 👍

Crohn ve Ülseratif Kolit aynı gruptan, ancak farklı özelliklere sahip kronik iltihabi bağırsak hastalıklarıdır. 
Günümüzde nedenleri halen tam olarak bilinmemekle beraber, çevresel faktörler, ailesel yatkınlık etkenler arasında sayılmaktadır. Ülseratif Kolit hastalığında belirtiler daha belirginken, Crohn hastalığı belirti açısından olmasa da seyir açısından daha ciddi sonuçlara yol açabilir. Ülseratif Kolitte daha belirgin olmak üzere her iki hastalık için de kanser  riski artmaktadır. Bu nedenle hastalık yaşının 8-10 yılı geçtiği kişilerde belli aralıklarla Kolonoskopi yapılmalıdır.

I’m feeling very fragile after my procedure yesterday. I plan on spending the day editing and binge watching a new series on Netflix, any good recommendations? #coffee #marble #netflix #lifestyleblogger #lifestyle #beautyblogger #bblogger #fashionblogger #fblogger #ulcerativecolitis #ileostomy #discoverunder10k #discoverunder2k #discoverunder5k #youtuber #morningcoffee #duvetday #paperchase #primark
Today’s breakfast. 2 pieces of white toast with unsalted butter, one mug of water & small glass of orange juice. I find keeping my water intake high everyday helps me feel the best that I can. Yes my toast says CFC in 😂😂 #ulcerativecolitis #uc #ibd #silentillness #chronicillness #ibdworldday #worldibdday #uk #london #surrey #blog #blogger #ibdblog #inflammatoryboweldisease #chelseafc #water #orangejuice #sunnyd
Done a small meal prep today. I can tolerate cheese and red meats unlike some UC suffers. So in these meals it is pasta with a tomato sauce, meatballs, pepperoni & cheese. #foodprep #food #prep #ulcerativecolitis #uc #ibd #silentillness #chronicillness #ibdworldday #worldibdday #uk #london #surrey #blog #blogger #ibdblog #inflammatoryboweldisease #mealprep #mealprepmondays
Throwin it back to February, when I was feeling a whole lot better than I do now! I thought I'd post this because:
1. I've never posted it; and
2. I'm fully clothed and done up - I've posted waaaay too many photos of me in my pyjamas lately!!
Fatigue was my biggest problem, but I managed to make it through a day of work, hair & makeup, and an entire charity ball!! It does make it easier when you're with some of your favourite people 💜

Another day of bedrest with this wee dote for company 😊just looking at that beautiful greying wee face will make you smile regardless of how you feel! And damn I feel 💩so I need all the smiles! 
Hope you folks all have a low symptom day and enjoy the weather if you can. It's actually sunny and warm here again which is pretty rare for Ireland! Fingers crossed it's the same again tomorrow for our last family day out ☀️

Dysbiosis, leaky gut, adrenal fatigue, oh my!! Today is World Chrons & Colitis Day 🚽
.
.
Day 143: Holistic Living 365
GI PROTOCOLS
.
.
When dealing with something as serious as Crohns or Ulcerative Colitis it’s important to deal with pathogens like parasites, fungus/candida) as they’re often times causal factors that lead to dysbiosis, leaky gut and inflammatory bowel disease. .
.
Before we even start looking at supplementation, it’s important to have a supporting diet in place that addresses any food allergies or intolerances that are preventing the body from absorbing essential nutrients and functioning optimally. .
.
A digestive healing protocol, followed by a bowel cleanse, an anti-fungal protocol and anti-parasitic cleanse may all be required.  This can take months or even a year or more of work and dedication on your part. And this is where you need to make a decision ... what are you willing to commit to? Do you want some pills from the dr & and bandaid? Or are you ready and willing to put in the work to address root causes and work towards optimal health and wellness? The choice is always yours. #healwithfood .

On my way to the Royal Children's  Hospital in Melbourne. I have an appointment with the surgeon to find out what is involved if I require surgery for my Ulcerative Colitis.

I always wonder how my life would be like if I never had UC, how different I would be as a person. 
I feel like my life would be totally different, I would go to a public school, I would be able to get out of bed without always being tired, I wouldn’t be on any meds but if I never had UC, I wouldn’t know how life really is, how hard it can be, I would never understand what it means to have a chronic illness, I would never understand how it affects a person. Having UC completely changed my life, yea it sucks but I’ve learned so much, I’ve been through a lot. Of course it was scary at first but it has gotten so much easier, I’ve learned so much about UC and Crohn’s, I’ve met so many warriors who have helped me and now I’m glad to call some of them my friends, I hope to meet more warriors cause I love meeting new people and I love learning about how IBD changed their lives and how they stay positive throughout all of this. 
I’ve noticed that I see life in a different way than most people, imagine a rainstorm, it starts to rain a little bit but as time goes on you’ll see lightning then you’ll hear thunder, we never know when the rainstorm is going to end, some people get frustrated cause they don’t like rainstorms or the thunder becomes too loud but eventually the thunder and lightning go away and the rain slowly stops then the sun comes out and everything is good again. That’s how I see life, when something bad happens and you feel like it’s getting worse, just remember it can’t rain forever, eventually the storm will stop and everything will be good again. 
QOTD: How long have you had your disease and what motivates you to keep fighting? (I know this is two questions but oooh well lol)
AOTD: I’ve had UC for 9 years and honestly I keep fighting for me, UC took over my childhood and I’m not letting it take over my teenage years or my entire future. There is so much stuff that I want to do and so many things that I’m going to accomplish this year. My grandmothers are my motivation, they went through a lot and seeing them fight till the very end and knowing they accomplished everything that they wanted to do, makes me feel like I can do anything. 💜💜💜

I don’t know what was wrong with this day, but the pool was right. I was going to attempt 415x6 hip thrusts tonight, but last week my foot slipped on the floor and I almost broke my leg. For real lol. So today I warmed up with 135 and my foot slipped. I need to find some new glutes day shoes. I just did a bunch of band crap today and had a really good bikini chink booty day

Because shes the sweetest 😭

Days when I'm in pain this little chubber makes everything better. Last night, all of today, and this evening I've had a lot of lower left abdominal pain. I still managed to work out this morning with some modifications, follow the nutrition plan for all my meals (just ate smaller potions) and I still went to work and went about my day. It's nothing out of the ordinary at this point and nothing I can't tolerate, but this sweet girl makes it all not so bad. 
No rain no flowers, right?

I WAS sandwiched in between my hubs and our oldest, all four stacked up. 👨‍👩‍👦‍👦
.
But I can’t help to think how I am one blessed woman! Not only do I have a hard working husband, 17 years together strong 💏, an amazing father to our two wild, smart, beautiful boys, and how I am going to always have protectors, and how these three are my life. I sometimes get carried away thinking how much chaos it can be here at times, but then when I really slow down, and think- I can’t believe how lucky I am. ❤️

Also thought this quote was cute. 💙
“A woman with all sons, will be surrounded by handsome men for the rest of her life.”

Watching “Hoarders” and decluttering. These things are EVERYWHERE! 😂 It’s like when I went from one shot every two weeks to one shot per week the syringes quadrupled. 💉😂 #humira #abbvie #invisibleillness #butyoudontlooksick #ulcerativecolitis
I didn’t realize I was struggling until I wasn’t anymore.  I shared that last night with @jaymeckatis and it’s always therapeutic for me to chat through with other ladies who understand or maybe be in the middle of the struggle too.
.

The transition.  From sport —-> life.  Where your once overly scheduled and routine life is GONE.  Where the alarm no longer sounds to show up for your team and now it sounds for work.  Where you once had a coach mapping out a plan for you and helping you to the finish line you now walk into a gym and are LOST.  You sign up for classes or races you are not conditioned to do and get injured because you over do it.  The competitive nature in us will never go away but our bodies have literally been conditioned to swim 3-4 hours a day and here we go strapping on the running shoes trying to recreate that environment ourselves.
.

And then there’s the body issues.  Your once chiseled an strong body becomes soft and weak.  Clothes don’t fit and you realize you’re the only one in your work place with shoulders as wide as a linebacker and the waist of a gymnast.  You have no idea how to eat and what to eat because you’ve literally always eaten to train and you train A LOT.
.

There are some really awkward years while you try to find yourself.  Where you try to develop an independence to do fitness for you and eat like a normal person.  A time where no one is waiting for you when you roll out of bed and sleepwalk across the street to the pool.  A time when no one reminds you what you’re working so hard for and what the goals of the team are.
.

This was me from 2004-2013. 9 years of a struggle.  Either ALL IN with a fitness plan (training for half marathons) or barely exercising.  Where I was either ALL IN ‘dieting’ and watching (ahem restricting) what I was eating or eating everything and the kitchen sink. A time where either my clothes fit or they didn’t. {cont. in comments}

If you want to make huge improvements to your health focus is the key. Have you found this to be true?

I’ve thought a lot about making a blog post about what it’s like to live with this, but I always end up deleting it. Bear with me because I’m not usually this open 😂

It’s a lot of pain, a lot of guilt, and a lot of fear. It’s not knowing if a medicine will make it better, make it worse, or just fail to work at all. It’s a lot of crying and even more trying to explain how unpredictable symptoms can be.. a lot of trying to make people understand what it’s like to feel like you have no control over when the next flare is going to hit you. Trying to make yourself understand what you did to deserve it. “Will this flare be a small one or will it throw me in the hospital?” is constantly in your mind. It’s the fear of making plans and the fear of disappointing people you love. It’s grieving for the life you thought you’d have.. a career, a family. 
But. 
It’s also a lot of faith. Faith that you’re strong enough to handle it. Faith that there will be a more effective medicine or (please, Jesus) a cure. Faith that you aren’t alone. A lot of gratitude for how much love and compassion your friends and family give. For the people who try to understand and let me vent my frustration without judgment. It’s a lot of appreciation.. especially for the little moments. And damnit, it’s strength. 💜 #chronicillness #chronicpain #ulcerativecolitis #lifewithuc #strength #ibdawareness

So... I admittedly have an obsession with essential oils. I originally got them to make my house smell good but now I’m hooked. This is only about half of my stash.😳 From today through the 25th, premium starter kits are 10% off! I’m not usually one to promote things like this, but it’s a great deal and it never happens and I wanted to share the oily love! Let me know if you are interested and I can get you hooked too! 😉 .

This is the reality of living with Ulcerative Colitis....in bed with a heating pad, praying that you can make it to the bathroom when the next urge hits. After responding well to my current medications, and some prednisone when flares would crop up, the last two weeks have been rough.  Cramping, sometimes so intense I can barely breathe. Urgency that comes out of nowhere and is embarrassing when you can’t make it all the way to the bathroom. Exhaustion even when you do nothing all day, except well your body fighting itself basically. I like to pride myself on trying to be a positive person but some days it’s hard. Another colonoscopy in the next couple weeks to see how much worse it’s gotten, and hopefully a new plan to get it back under control #livingwithuc #ulcerativecolitis #setback #tryingtostaypositive

Doesn’t look like a taco, but it tastes like one 😋 I recently (as in 3 days ago) reintroduced cumin, and my life...has been changed. It’s crazy how one little spice can bring so much joy, but seriously, when you’re so restricted, one little spice can bring so much joy 😂 •
•
I’m definitely going to have to perfect my tortilla making skills before I share them on my blog, but for now, imma keep on eating 🤤

This is my, “calling in the troops” post. 
You might not know but Daniel has been in a health battle for the past 3 months. 
Backstory: In the summer of ‘06 the Lord miraculously healed him from 4 years of intensely severe Ulcerative Colitis. Daniel completely changed from being a fast-food-junkie to an almost exclusive whole foods eater and normally experiences no symptoms. Since that day though he’s experienced 3 isolated flare ups, 2 during our marriage. Each flare up has lasted a couple of months and has been very difficult on his body. 
In March of this year he started to experience another flare up and has hardly been able to eat anything since April. 
When we were in TX, at times it seemed like he was starting to recover but since we’ve been back in MI his symptoms have been the most severe and as of right now there’s no possibility to see a GI doctor in our area until late June/early July. 
Present: We’re asking for prayer and for you to stand with us in believing that our God who healed him before will heal him again. Daniel’s experiencing severe pain from symptoms & is very low in energy but still working 8-10 hours a day. Fortunately he works from home but as some of you know, his job is ending on June 30th due to our move to Flint.
We feel like it’s providential that his job is ending and we know that we’re about to birth a ministry but at times if we could, we’d just say, “never mind, we’re good with NOT stepping back into public ministry. The cost is too high.” But there’s no taking back our “yes”. We’ve moved our lives across the country, left all that was comfortable, and are fully committed to following Jesus, even into the Wilderness. 
So here we are, in the 3rd trimester of being pregnant with a God-given mandate, specific promises, and prophetic words and we are in need of intercession to help us make it to delivery. Thank you joining with the Trinity and the cloud of witnesses who are cheering us on. 
We appreciate you.

To my delight I woke up at midnight with a headache (day 5 people!) and couldn’t get back to sleep so I decided to turn the negative into a positive and spend my morning doing yoga and designing my journal for June. Not going to lie, I spent the next 6 hours dreaming of breakfast because oats are LIFE 👏🏻 p.s. I never knew I could draw pot plants let alone at 3am after sleeping 3 hours but here we are 😂🌿🌱

Breakfast was scrambled egg with bacon, spinach, avocado and egg. Served with an almond milk coffee. Breakfast done right! 😍 -

Wow. You guys are amazing. My DMs are exploding with support. Thank you ever so much. 💐My colonoscopy confirmed complete mucosal healing and no active IBD!! Them photographs tho 😍 While this should be refreshing news there’s always a tinge of ambivalence because I know how quickly this disease can change. Hoping for a long remission this time and for health to all of you! 🤞🏻💜

15 years ago, today, I was diagnosed with #ulcerativecolitis .It was the scariest day of my life. I was 14 when I was told that I had an incurable disease and I remember that feeling. That overwhelming feeling of my life slipping through my fingers. Of all the things I wanted to do,to be...it felt like a giant stop sign on my future. I had no idea of the overwhelming,life altering journey I was about to go on over the next 4 years just to stay alive. I had no idea I was about to become a guinea pig for the medications they have out now for UC. I had no idea I was going to go through chemo because nothing else was working to get my body to stop attacking itself. I had no idea that I was going to choose to have my entire large intestines removed and live with a bag through part of high school. I had no idea I was about to experience pain most people will never have to endure in their life. I had no idea I was going to wonder if I was going to make it to 18 years old. The funny thing is, I wouldn’t take it back for the world. It taught me so much, it strengthened me in a way nothing else could have, it gave me a massive amount of empathy for all life,it offered me a view of life and the world that a lot of times I don’t think other people can see. My disease doesn’t define me but it has absolutely shaped who I am. And I’m grateful! I’m grateful for all the pain,the fear,the tears,the surgeries, and my scars. All of the scars on my body remind me just how strong I am and what I have to offer those around me. We can’t control what happens to us but we can choose how we handle it and how we view our situations! That girl in the first picture will always be a part of me. She lives to remind me to keep my energy positive, to always be grateful, and only surround myself with others that have grateful hearts!

15 years ago, today, I was diagnosed with #ulcerativecolitis  .It was the scariest day of my life. I was 14 when I was told that I had an incurable disease and I remember that feeling. That overwhelming feeling of my life slipping through my fingers. Of all the things I wanted to do,to be...it felt like a giant stop sign on my future. I had no idea of the overwhelming,life altering journey I was about to go on over the next 4 years just to stay alive. I had no idea I was about to become a guinea pig for the medications they have out now for UC. I had no idea I was going to go through chemo because nothing else was working to get my body to stop attacking itself. I had no idea that I was going to choose to have my entire large intestines removed and live with a bag through part of high school. I had no idea I was about to experience pain most people will never have to endure in their life. I had no idea I was going to wonder if I was going to make it to 18 years old. The funny thing is, I wouldn’t take it back for the world. It taught me so much, it strengthened me in a way nothing else could have, it gave me a massive amount of empathy for all life,it offered me a view of life and the world that a lot of times I don’t think other people can see. My disease doesn’t define me but it has absolutely shaped who I am. And I’m grateful! I’m grateful for all the pain,the fear,the tears,the surgeries, and my scars. All of the scars on my body remind me just how strong I am and what I have to offer those around me. We can’t control what happens to us but we can choose how we handle it and how we view our situations! That girl in the first picture will always be a part of me.

Focusing on gratitude is something I make a conscious effort of - studies have even shown that a gratitude practice changes and grows parts of the brain responsible for empathy and happiness. This past weekend was very easy to be grateful for, when I found myself doing yoga in the middle of a Sonoma vineyard, having an amazing CBD infused meal with lots of plant based options, and enjoying a guided meditation in an outdoor field while feeling the wind gently blowing over the pond nearby. Thank you @tso.sonoma for an amazing Mindfulness and Cannabis retreat and to all the amazing people and companies that contributed to the experience ❤️✌🏼🍃

This so true. Especially with my Ulcerative Colitis diagnosis. I have taken time out for myself to do the things I enjoy and I am definitely “more me.” Which I feel like also makes me a better parent and wife! #theperrinproject #ulcerativecolitis #ibdawareness #ibd #ibdwarrior #momlife #mompreneur #lifestyle #blogger
Do you remember where you were last May 23rd at this time? No?! I do. 
On May 23, 2017, I called my mom who was driving home from work in a panic, hysterically crying after getting off the phone with my doctor. Despite taking antibiotics for the prescribed amount of time and waiting 24+ hours from finishing, I still couldn’t keep anything down, was in excruciating pain and running a fever over a 100+. I’d been severely ill for 3 weeks, had lost a significant amount of weight and was extremely dehydrated. I didn’t know what was going on. I didn’t know that it would take an hour to be seen, and I’d be brought back to Peds. I didn’t know I’d be admitted to the hospital and that my CT scan would show my whole colon inflamed, requiring a sigmoidoscopy which would diagnose me with IBD. At this time, last year, I was just tired and scared.

But today, one year later from going to the hospital, I biked 12 miles in an hour. I did a 20 minute weight circuit. I laid down outside and read a book. I got up to let in the mail and let out my dog without feeling like I’d faint or cry from pain. I did chores. I showered standing up. I drank coffee and water. I ate falafel with hummus. I had a perfectly normal day, but a day that seemed impossible a year ago, 10 months ago, even 6 months ago. This is just to say that yes, it takes time, BUT your body can heal, and you WILL have good days again where you feel like YOURSELF. Cheers to feeling better friends.

Move over kombucha, there's a new kid in town!
Meet water kefir, kombucha's lesser known but more alluring cousin.
What's the diffo? 
Both kefir and kombucha are brewed from a SCOBY or 'mother' culture.  SCOBY stands for symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast. Technically the difference lies in the species of bacteria and yeast contained in the different cultures.
Kombucha produces acids and enzymes which can aid digestion and contains some beneficial bacteria, along with caffeine from the tea it feeds on.
.
Water kefir is more of a general probiotic beverage as it contains a greater number of bacteria strains, and is predominantly a lactic acid ferment which aids in the absorbtion of nutrients, and the health of your gut lining. As it doesn't need tea to ferment it's also caffeine-free ✔
.
The main difference however is TASTE. If you're not into the vinegar aftertaste kombucha imparts, you'll be pleasantly surprised by water kefir. Try it, and you'll see what we're talking about😊
.
Oh, and it contains significant amounts of Tryptophan, which is an important precursor to your main happy hormone Seratonin. This may be why 'kefir' means 'good feeling' in Turkish. 
Cheers to good health and good feelings! 🥂 📸 @fresh.is.good
