One of my followers asked me to talk about relationships, and not just the romantic ones. I am very blessed to have an amazing fiancé; however Crohns impacts more than just Mike and I. In this photo are my people! They just get it and never push me to do too much, we are like a small scrappy army. 💜 I will be the first to say it’s hard to be friends with someone who is chronically ill. I bail (constantly), I’m always in pain, the mood swings are awful and although my friends are trying to be loving.. I hate being asked about my illness. 💜 I’ve had friends I’ve been close with for 12+ years never show up to see me in the hospital. I’ve had others feel I’m stealing the spotlight, because everyone gets hyper focused on how sick I am. 💜 Some people don’t understand that I physically cannot get out of bed and get frustrated with me. However I have been blessed with my amazing Torrid work family, and three extremely close friends whom have been by my side through all of this and without them I wouldn’t have come out swinging. 💜 I’m thankful beyond words to everyone who supports me and I know this is hard on you too.

Cold Friday nights call for old school #glutenfree sponge & icing with sprinkles! I spotted this recipe when looking for our favourite Madeira sponge cake recipe from @beckyexcell & I’m so pleased we gave it a go because it’s 👌🏻👌🏻! New family favourite 🤤

This week, I saw a lot of ten years challenges. Today I’m showing you my 5 years challenge because today it’s the birthday of my ostomy. It’s crazy how a person can change inside and outside just in a few years. So grateful for these 5 years.

Happy Friday! The weekend is here and boy, do I need it so I can catch up on writing and some organizing our home. Remember: if you suffer from a chronic illnesses or are just plain busy and can’t clean or organize your house all at once, do what I’m doing...one bite at a time. Yesterday I tackled putting my jewelry into a huge organizer. Sounds small but now it’s done. Earlier this week, I organized our pantry. Tomorrow I hope to start purging our many bathroom cupboards and then making them organized and pretty. One thing at a time!# 💛 What are your weekend plans? 💃🏼 #fridayfeels #organization #gettingorganized #chronicillness #fibromyalgia #fibromyalgiawarrior #crohnsdisease #crohnswarrior #crohnsawareness #over40andfabulous #40sandfabulous #styleover40 #pinksalt #bottlebrushtrees #homedecor #encouragement #over40andfierce #foreverfierce

7 years ago today I was diagnosed with both Crohn's and Celiac disease at the same time🤯. My mind was blown and my body wrecked. It took several years of finding what works between food and medicine. Im still not totally in charge of my own health. Its scary sometimes. I am blessed to have support from those that love me, those that have been where I am, and those that work consistently to better my health. Cheers to another Anniversary of moving forward and taking back my health. 😟 😟 😟 #awareness #crohnsdisease #celiacdisease #inflmation #gi #gastro #help #blessed #godblessthismess #hospitals #food #doctors #greenribbon #purpleribbon #crohnswarrior #celiaclife #takeback #health

In New Orleans making Bloody Mary's is an art. Just about every bar claims to make the best Bloody Mary. I can tell you from personal experience Oceanna's on Bourbon Street makes one of the best I've ever had( and I'm not even a fan of tomato juice...don't ask). while they are not only tasty they also help with hangovers...when you add a few drops of CBD hangovers don't stand a chance. #cbd #everydaywellness#cannabiscommunity#servingupfoodandfacts #mealprep#greenpantherchef #cookouts#elevatedcatering #cannabiscommunity#cannabisculture #washingtondc#positivevibes #crohnsdisease#crohnswarrior #crohnsawareness#hightimes #dcfoodie #eatlocal#420community #dcnightlife #capitolhill#wellness #chef#entrepreneur#togetherwebuild⠀ #teamworkmakesthedreamwork#holistichealth #neworleans #frontrowtravelsllc #essencetravels

My son is on SCD for almost 2 and a half months, so for now he eats cooked fruits (banana doesn’t need to be cooked but it has to be very ripe). Since at the beginning I make apple sauce, as it was the only sweet option he had (after a while we introduced raw honey on his diet). Just organic apples, a very little bit water and after cooked, purred. Pear sauce is other option. 🍎🍐🍏 #scddiet #specificcarbohydratediet #doencadecrohn #crohnsdisease #crohnswarrior

Day 18: Education I graduated from UNH in 2015 with a degree in Ecology. College was always something that a young, Sick Me never considered to be an achievable goal. I had always figured that I'd either be too sick to get a degree, or (more morbidly) I wouldn't live long enough to graduate anyway. Well, I was wrong. I got my degree. It was one of the hardest things I've ever done, but I did it! And I'm proud of myself for reaching my goal. Just don't talk to me about student loan debt... . . . . #throwback #crohnsdisease #crohns #spoonie #autoimmunedisease #invisibleillness #chronicillness #crohnswarrior #anxiety #depression #mentalhealth #mentalillness #ibd #anemia #college #unh #universityofnewhampshire #ecology #biology #bachelordegree #degree #education #success #csphotochallenge #chronicallysuccessful #photochallenge #self #me #dress #proud

This bone broth protein powder from organikahealth is the BOMB DOT COM. I use it in my soups, I add it to my quinoa broth, to stir-fry’s, sauces, and can be used to enhance just about anything. It’s all the goodness of a long simmered bone broth...without the work! It add such richness and depth of flavour to so many of my dishes and has SO many benefits: ❇️-it is filled with vitamins and minerals like iron, magnesium, and zinc ❇️-it reduces inflammation and helps heal the gut #crohnswin ❇️-it helps protect the joints and counteracts osteoarthritis #happyandhealthy #crohnsdisease #crohnswarrior #mylife #montrealgirl #foodformyfamily #bonebroth #montreal #beaconsfield #myliferunningwithscissors #foodie

Mood.. I want to make this page all about positivity but this week I just wouldn’t be being honest if that’s what I shared.. I’m actually seeking help from my Dr for how I’m feeling mentally right now which is hard for me in itself as I’ve always been someone who’s pushed through using holistic methods. I’ve always considered myself to be really strong but I’m not feeling that this week. I’m being real and admitting I’m having a really tough time right now and I’m feeling stuck in a Groundhog Day of not sleeping, then medication and then watching what I eat or not feeling like eating at all and then my stomach giving me issues, I make plans and then I’m not well enough to go and it just keeps repeating.

Woke up from #pain and #nausea. Severe enough nausea to make my mouth water in preparation for barfing and cause me to go sit by the toilet just in case. This happens several times a week.

🚘IBD & TRAVEL 🔹 🚅If you have Crohn’s Disease or Ulcerative Colitis, you are probably concerned about the challenges of travelling. A change of climate, water or food can upset anyone’s bowels. 🔹 🚈Yet many people with Inflammatory Bowel Disease travel widely, both in the UK and abroad. They may go for a short break or a long holiday lasting weeks or months. With careful planning ahead it should be possible for you to travel to most places. 🔹 🚑Before you leave, speak to your doctor about a flare-up plan. This will mean you know what to do if your IBD symptoms worsen while you are away. 🔹 🔎For more information visit: https://www.crohnsandcolitis.org.uk/about-inflammatory-bowel-disease/publications/travel-ibd 🔹 #thegrumblinggut #beatthestigma #crohnsdisease #crohnsfighter #invisibleillness #travel #crohnsandcolitisuk #crohnswarrior #vacation #holiday #takemeback #lifequotes #fitness #sun #positivevibes #sunny #travelguide #sea #medicalschool #ibdwarrior #goodvibes #sand #holidayvibes #beach #travelgram #noteverydisabilityisvisible #dontjudge #inflammatoryboweldisease #boweldisease #raiseawareness

DO NOT SWIPE if you have a weak stomach. And please do not report, just keep scrolling. These are medical images. The following images are what feels like fiery acid knives on my belly every day. When it is at its worst (being pulled/touched/if I move the wrong way), I am screaming. And I tolerate pain pretty well. This is an ulcer from pyoderma gangrenosum. In other words, #crohns on my skin by my stoma. It has doubled in size in the last week. I have special products to keep it covered, but the only way to really fix it is to get on medication, which should FINALLY happen tomorrow as long as there are no more hiccups with the pharmacy. The ulcer weeps both clear fluid and puss. The products I have pull moisture away from the wound while keeping it covered so it can heal. This is seen on the third image, with the ulcer output sitting on the lower part of my ostomy appliance. #crohnswarrior #crohnsdisease #ibd #ostomate #invisibleillness #pain

Two of the gems found along the coastal road separating the land of East Newcastle from the waters of the Pacific Ocean in my hometown. I wrote a few days ago about how much I treasured the dusk ride and photography visit here on Sunday evening. What I wrote then has been borne out by me having an incredibly difficult week with pain, only capable of leaving the house for a trip to the pharmacy for more painkillers. I'm so glad I recognised it as a special experience in the moment. And my joy has continued as I've edited and shared more of those dusk pics this week whilst bedridden. That's why I treasure what for many of you is a fairly run-of-the-mill experience: they are few & far between. These golden moments must nourish and sustain me for weeks. Celebrate the moment in the moment. Ps. I don't need or seek pity or sympathy, I don't share these observations & challenges for these reactions. Instead, please mentally high five me, that I haven't let chronic illness beat me. Cheer me on for making art despite astonishing pain levels. Reflect on your own mindfulness practices. Celebrate with me that these afflictions have not dampened my verve or capacity for joy xx #nobbysbeach #nobbyshead #newcastleoceanbaths #newy #mynewcastle #oceanbaths #artdeco #diptychmood #eastcoastaustralia #visitnsw #visitnewcastle #minimalalert #minimal_perfection #minimalistgrammer #minimal #diptych #spoonielife #crohnswarrior #chronicpainwarror #artisjoy #seekjoy #mindfulness #newcastlensw

Endorphins are a great metaphor for life. If you haven’t yelled out F$&@! during your workout then you probably didn’t workout hard enough to get that rush afterwards. 🤯 I only get it when I push HARD. Then I’m rewarded and motivated to do it again. 🤩

It's been almost 7 months since you came into my life. It's been a time of growth. You taught me how to love myself again. That i am beautiful. That I'm more than the bag I wear. That I am strong. That I am resilent. That I am not broken. I am a warrior. A survivor. Without you I wouldnt be here today. Your a blessing, not a curse. I have life again. Because of you my medicine is working, my doctor says my levels are all normal. I'm the healthiest I've ever been. All because of you. #stomalove #newleaseonlife #grateful #ostomate #petuniathestoma #crohnswarrior #crohnsawareness #ostomylife #ostomyawareness #nursewithanostomy #blessingindisguise

SHOTS SHOTS SHOTS 💉 HUMIRA is a prescription medicine used to reduce signs and symptoms, and to achieve and maintain clinical remission in adults with moderate to severe Crohn’s disease (along with ulcerative colitis, rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, and several other autoimmune diseases). last month I didn’t have @kp_washington insurance to cover my humira injections. my doctor recommended that I call the drug manufacturer to see if they could help me, which sounded ridiculous. aren’t drug manufacturers super greedy? I called @abbvie and filled out a form—within a week, I had a three month supply of humira at my door and along with a twelve month supply for FREE. this isn’t sponsored and humira hasn’t put me in remission from Crohn’s disease yet. I know drug companies can’t cover the cost of medicine for everyone, but I was honestly surprised how amazing they were to me despite their bad reputation and I wanted to share my story with you. It truly never hurts to ask for help. . . . . . #crohnsdisease #crohns #crohnsawareness #crohnswarrior #crohnsfighter #crohnssucks #crohnsandcolitis #rheumatoidarthritis #inflammatoryboweldisease #ibdawareness #invisibleillness #invisibleillnessawareness

Let’s just be clear for a second: I workout for my sanity. I workout to lose some weight that prednisone screwed me over like a mofo. I workout even when I lose that weight, to maintain. I workout to show others they just have to show up every day. I workout because I generally feel so much happier. I have a new life all because of Beachbody. It showed me to believe, especially in myself. Do I pause the video a few times to catch my breathe ? Abso f’in loutely but you know what? I don’t give up and I won’t let you either🙌🏻 20 minutes is all it takes. Did I mention I’m slimming down in a H E A L T H Y way? Fueling my body properly with proper nutrition that’s right in front of my face every single day so I don’t know what I’m doing. Even if I didn’t know, I have teammates to help me rise and not fall.

the desperation to prove to those around me that I am in fact, a good person is SO REAL... but I’m kind of tired of trying to be someone others want me to be. I have to be honest that my soul has got some pretty heavy dark spots because of my traumatic past, and I am an assertive (sometimes abrasive) individual because of it, but I work really hard on my negative aspects. I don’t expect people to understand (how could they when my life is literally like a TV drama!), but the judgement & rumors still hurt cause I’m a human 🤷🏻‍♀️ I also think hypocrisy is a huge trigger for me. But anywho. Although I stumble ALL the time, lose motivation, and have fleeting thoughts of giving up, I’m not going to give up on myself or the path I’m on to a recovery of my mind and body. I don’t love my life rn, but it’s obviously been worse so I will always be grateful. Here’s a selfie of me smiling through a flare yesterday, cause Im hoping stuff will come together soon. Thanks for reading, I hope this helps some of you not feel alone! 🥰 #ibdawareness #bpd #bpdrecovery #crohnsdisease #crohnswarrior #selflove #selfie

*New Video Up!* Link in Bio. Not tryna sound crazy here I swear 😂 Just completed 21 days of just juice to inspire my fellow #crohnies out there. It’s not an end-all-fix-all, but your belly will love you so so so much if it’s given a break. It’s been the key to getting rid of my painful debilitating symptoms over the years. Digestive rest! - It made a lotta sense to me that #crohns & #colitis were simply damaged or wounded intestines and how does our bodies heal wounds? You keep them very clean & free of irritants. Food—no matter how healthy & nourishing it is—can still be an irritant. Solid food passing through an ulcerated zone is gonna hurt! - Juicing is a wonderful way to give your tines a gentle bitto love. The astringent, detoxifying power of fruits, veggies & herbs rehydrate your body and allow your vessel with the extra energy to shift into regenerating damaged tissues. - Over 50% of your body’s energy goes into digestion. Eliminate the labor of solid food and your body shifts into healing mode. It’s slow, but patience, patience, patience. Things take time. - And work into juicing slowly, too. Your body knows the pace. I’ve never felt better on just juice for 3 weeks straight but I didn’t get here overnight. This is something to work up to. It’s so important to listen to your body. Be gentle, be slow and give it the best care. - Check my new video where Jojo & I talk about my experience on juice for 21 days. Much love y’all ☺️

It was wonderful to finally share the amazing work of the #ibdparenthoodproject created by this group, and sponsored and supported by the AGA, @crohnscolitisfoundation. It was wonderful to be integrated into the forming of a clinical care pathway, weaving the patient voice and experience with evidence based research. Patient tools have been created alongside best-practice guidelines, which should be available to all patients and clinicians soon, to collaboratively support preconception, pregnancy, and post-natal care for women with #ibd.

Yummy #keto meal (3 whole eggs, chicken sausage, 1/2 avocado) ohhhh excuse me #jillianmichaels that you have no clue on how the body works. Do your research first before you go speaking on things you know nothing about. You’re not a doctor, you didn’t try it, you have not done the research, have not experimented with clients you have no clue about physiology. Your leverage of being a fitness celebrity having your voice heard is harmful to people and their health. Keto reduces inflammation in the body and has enabled me to get off my aweful Crohn’s disease oral medications like prednisone that completely jacked me up and when I eat Keto my symptoms are almost non-existent and when I DO eat carbs I’m jacked up....I’ve been experimenting therefore a walking testimony along with my clients and thousands of other people doing Keto. You’ve lost ANY little credibility you may have had. I hope you go back to the drawing board and reset yourself and your ways of thinking. It’s time to evolve.....and I AM an old-school Bodybuilder that has been programmed with the protocol of eating every 3 to 4 hours, 1 g of protein per pound of body weight, moderate carbs to low carbs, and low-fat and calorie restriction when it comes to contest preparation. I’ve been there done that....and KETO makes so much more sense now that I’ve researched it and the physiology of the body because as bodybuilders we were even given wrong information. So theres my knowledge with a side of butter....eat that Jillian as you should be eating your words too. . . . #toniamoore #ifbbpro #bodybuilder #nutrition #ketomeal #fightdisease #crohnsdisease #crohnswarrior #nevergiveup #stayyoungforever #antiaging #personaltrainer #onlinecoaching #education #knowledge #research #evolve #wakeup #awareness

Keto reduces inflammation in the body and has enabled me to get off my aweful Crohn’s disease oral medications like prednisone that completely jacked me up and when I eat Keto my symptoms are almost non-existent and when I DO eat carbs I’m jacked up....I’ve been experimenting therefore a walking testimony along with my clients and thousands of other people doing Keto. You’ve lost ANY little credibility you may have had. I hope you go back to the drawing board and reset yourself and your ways of thinking. It’s time to evolve.....and I AM an old-school Bodybuilder that has been programmed with the protocol of eating every 3 to 4 hours, 1 g of protein per pound of body weight, moderate carbs to low carbs, and low-fat and calorie restriction when it comes to contest preparation. I’ve been there done that....and KETO makes so much more sense now that I’ve researched it and the physiology of the body because as bodybuilders we were even given wrong information. So theres my knowledge with a side of butter....eat that Jillian as you should be eating your words too. . . . #toniamoore #ifbbpro #bodybuilder #nutrition #ketomeal #fightdisease #crohnsdisease #crohnswarrior #nevergiveup #stayyoungforever #antiaging #personaltrainer #onlinecoaching #education #knowledge #research #evolve #wakeup #awareness

I absolutely love being a #teacher! However, some days it does feel like I am trying to train dinosaurs 🦖 I have one of the most rewarding jobs that I can honestly say I look forward to going to! My goal this year is to avoid the stress that comes with spring testing and wrapping up the year! #teacherlife . . . . #crohns #crohnsdisease #crohnswarrior #crohnsprincess #stomachproblems #nostomachproblems #mommywithcrohns #momwithcrohns #soontobemom #soontobemommy #soontobemomma #crohnswontstopme #colitis #autoimmunedisease #invisibleillness #butyoudontlooksick #crohnslife #crohnsfighter #crohnsandcolitis #ibd #remissionisthegoal

Day 17. I knew the back end of the #whole30 would be hard. This is the time of the month when I am ravenous. I was so hungry today and I wasn’t prepared enough. Thankfully there is a Chipotle near my office so I got a whole30 bowl for lunch then had my salmon salad lunch for an afternoon snack. Leftover beef and broccoli and sweet potato fries for dinner. I finally feel like I am done eating for the day lol. I started reading Food Freedom Forever today to help me because my enthusiasm is waning and my pms is crying out for chocolate. I was starting to stress about this whole process so much but between Melissa’s stories today and the food freedom book I am back on track. When I start to struggle I just stop and listen to my body, my stomach feels awesome and I don’t have pain in my hands. This is why I’m doing all of this. #januarywhole30 #glutenfree #dairyfree #ibd #paleo #autoimmunedisease #crohnsdisease #crohnswarrior

My life verse! Hebrews 11:1, I have been thinking about it a lot lately, one of my best friends has it tattooed on him bc of letters we sent each other back n forth when he was in basic training. This verse means so much to me esp bc u can’t see #faith u also can’t see my #invisibledisease #crohnsdisease 💜 I need to remember #god is always working on us all inside and out. My ulcer ridden digestive system will be healed at some point and I will be able to be fun Kelly again. I miss going out n drinking n having fun. Listening to music and traveling. I am wanting so badly to plan my next trip but I know right now is not the time. There may be a lot of things working against me at this point but all good things come in due time and this too shall pass I just need to keep having faith! For now I rest so I don’t get worse and so the remi can have a chance to work. #update I def went too hard over the holidays w all the running around, traveling and food I ate lol but I was so #happy and #thankful to be pain free for once!!!! I got 4 weeks of pain free time and I am so thankful for that but then started feeling really bad again. So I need to slow my roll lol I just got my third infusion yesterday so everyone #pray it keeps working and works longer this time since it wore off after 2 weeks after the 2nd infusion. Thanks everyone for all of the support, I love you so much. #crohnie #crohnswarrior #spoonie #winter #disease #hope #asseenincolumbus #newyear #prayer #godisgood #flowers #columbus #ohio #columbusohio

So after I’m off these steroids I’m going back to what I started a few years ago and finishing losing the weight I so badly wanted to, my goal was to lose 100 pounds and I just realized that I only have 30 pounds to go to reach that !!! isn’t that amazing?! I was 300 pounds in this first picture. • • • #ibd #crohnsdisease #ulcerativecolitis #inflammatoryboweldisease #chronicpain #chronicillness #pain #swollen #inflammation #follow #me #ulcerativecolitisfighter #crohnswarrior #followme #ibd #igers #instamood #instagood #positivevibes #mood #arthritis #quote #gainpost #weightloss #transformation #goals #selfies

I have reeeeeeally hesitated to post this. You want to talk about a #10yearchallenge well here you go. Sometimes I feel like I have lived 9 lives. From eating disorders to Crohn’s disease in 24 years I have dealt with a lot. 2019, 2009, and 2006 these pictures are always the hardest for me to look at. It brings back a lot of bad memories. I was bullied a lot for my weight when I was in school. I was miserable and sad. I struggled with binge eating, anorexia, bulimia, you name it. I wasn’t taught proper eating habits growing up. It wasn’t until I got to college that I educated myself on a proper diet and exercise. But going through this journey I have learned that balance is key. I have really had to change my relationship with food. I had to stop counting calories, stop eating for emotional reasons, and learn that not all food is created equal. I intuitively eat. I eat for energy. But if I want the occasional cookie I am not going to feel guilty for eating it. Same goes for exercise, it’s a process. I always get questions about how do I workout when I have Crohn’s. It’s been a journey of learning. I used to hate working out. Even before Crohn’s, I would always get fatigued and experience faint spells. But a proper diet helped with that. Plus I found something I loved to do. I started by going to group fitness classes. I found a class I liked called PiYo. I loved it so much I started teaching it. Then I started teaching INSANITY. Then I started incorporating weights into my regiment. Now here I am 7 years later doing CrossFit. We all have to start somewhere. ———————————————————————— . . . . #fit #fitness #fitspo #fitfam #gymlife #gym #motivation #inspiration #girlswithmuscle #bodybuilding #muscle #gainz #pilates #yoga #physique #athlete #crossfit #gymnastics #workout #health #weightlifting #workouts #crohns #crohnsdisease #crohnswarrior #oshihealth #oshiadvocate

Our next #ibdstory was sent to me by Brittany @brittanyydevan ! As we see in her story, crohns can take awhile to figure out what medications work for you. Unfortunately, the only way to know is trial and error!Read her story below👇 and don’t forget to #keepcalmandfightcrohns 💜💪 ▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️ #myibdstory My name is Brittany. I’m 26 years old and was diagnosed with crohn’s disease for the first time in August 2011. I was on vacation in the Dominican Republic and got very sick. I was hospitalized and was told I have crohn’s disease. When I came back home, my primary told me there was no way I had crohn’s and took me off all of my medication. Fast forward to two years later after having continuous stomach issues, I was rediagnosed with crohn’s in 2013 by my GI doctor. Since then, I’ve been on a handful of medications and the Humira injection. None of these things have worked. My CRP levels continue to rise and I’ve had no relief.My doctors are in the process of changing my medication and I’ve been eating a lot healthier. I’m hoping the combination of the two really start to help. Although having crohn’s disease makes me upset, my coworkers, friends, and family are my biggest advocates and supporters. I don’t know what I would do without them. ▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️ Please comment with support and advice!
