Kitchen = 90%. Win that battle and you will win the war Trishanna!

Avery Ways

You just gotta remain focus. It's all about the intake or the kitchen. After relocating 2.5 yrs ago far from family and friends, I'm slowly getting back to focusing on myself. I haven't seen my favorite size 10 jeans in a while but I am determined to get back into them by this summer since my only brother is getting married this June!

Chronic pain is no joke; especially from auto-immune inflammatory type illnesses. I know exactly how you feel and where you are at right now. I was there a few years ago before I finally got in to see the right Doctor who started me on the right medication for me. It really has made a world of difference. Don't let it get you down. Keep trying. Keep seeing different specialists until you fight the right one with the right plan to best help you. You can start to pick up the pieces and get on with life after that. It is super hard, but never give up on yourself. You are not a failure. Your body is simply attacking itself. People who have not expeirenced that have idea what you are going through and have no way of knowing. Try and stay hopeful. Keep looking for the answers. Keep reminding yourself of reasons to get up every day and try and look for one positive thing you can be thankful for each day (even when it seems impossible). You can beat this! You will get through this!!!

Well, you are not alone. I struglle With physical and psycological illnesses, and I know the toll it takes. It is easy to feelbad about yourself when you are hurting all over. Maybe my blog posts about inner dialogue and exercising With disabilities may help you feel a little better? I have no way to give you the links, as I am a technical neanderthal..

You can do it Trishanna! I took a holistic health (HH) class last semester (on my 20 year plan to graduate) and it really opened my eyes to how food affects our bodies. My teacher talked about a study that was done on surgery and if it was actually beneficial. They did a double blind study, no one knew except the doctor I think. They took the group of people, half actually got the surgery and the other half just got an incision to make it look like they had surgery and the results were really similar. Not saying this is the case for all surgeries, but that sometimes it's not the surgery that changes someone, it's the changes they make after because of the shock.Also learned that the bacteria in our GI tract impacts us more that you would think. He told us about someone who had a fecal transplant, I know, it sounds gross, but that the receiver of the transplant got better and started to receive characteristics from the donor; the donor was a overweight and so the receiver of the transplant gained weight. There's a lot more, but too much to post. You can Google about it. I think it would be beneficial for you to do some research on HH, seems like something that could benefit you. Good luck with everything!


I feel your pain. I too have been fighting injuries, gained all 17 lbs back that I lost and am struggling to get back my mojo. Joined a MyFitnessPal fanatics db that starts on Tuesday. I am making it my goal to lose a couple of pounds before it starts (my usual would be to just have fun before it starts) because my clothes are so tight I am miserable and depressed. I easily get caught up in all the hard core training lots of people do and I want to do that. I want to train like an athlete but I am prone to injury so I have to know AND REMEMBER my limitations. Good luck on your DB Trishanna... I am back too! Let's do this.

Great planning. I'm going to do the same thing, especially since we have several Christmas parties coming up. I didn't do so well last Friday and really splurged at the first holiday party. I definitely need a better plan. Thanks for the inspiration!
