Resting today as pushed a little too much in rehabilitation yesterday. Ops 😳 This is probably the worse stage of having an operation, it’s all about Trial & Error. Exercises can feels good, then bam 💥 you’re taken out the next day. I’m only just 6 weeks post op, it’s going to be sometime yet. It’s a waiting game, but I’m not going anywhere, so let’s get this done. Forward is forward no matter how slow 😊

Working my way back up in deadlift!! We did sets of 6, 6, 4, 4, 2, 2, then 1. 253.5 lbs was my max today. My hip can handle the heavier loads so far, I have an old hip labral tear and cam lesson that slows me down in training but doesn't stop me. Slowly adding weight to max at my meet in March but not deadlifting too often during the week. Trying to beat old max of 275! Thanks coach @level5crossfit!! . . .

Fours months post op, better by the day and so happy I have the fine people at @athleticarept to guide me through the ups and downs. #injuryrecovery #hiplabraltear #aerialist #letthegoodtimesroll #outofthewoods

My muscles are so tight! That's why stretching is soooo important. It not only keeps you loose and limber but protects your heart, too. My right hip has been extra tight to the point of knotting up on me at home and at work. That's not a good thing! It makes me limp extra and worsens the compensation issues I already experience. I followed up with some foam rolling but it still feels like I have some work to do so I can walk fairly normally. Plus, the extra tight muscles don't do my neuropathy any favors.

Do not underestimate how good it feels to be strapped to a machine that moves your leg for you after hip surgery. #cpmmachine #faisurgery #hiparthroscopy #labraltear #surgery #hipimpingment #running #denver #runner #runnersofinstagram #momswhorun #hipinjury #hiplabraltear #justkeepswimming

Meh. Another really meh day. All the stuff (hip, tailbone, pelvis and groin) are terribly flared. I can't sit without the tailbone pain becoming excruciating. Standing sets ofd the sharp groin pain. I have such cramps om the left side of my pelvis. And my hip has a general achy heavy sharp feeling. There's not really a comfortable position anymore. I think the weather is also aggravating it all too. The kids had a half day and i bribed them with snacks and Netflix in our bed. There's not a lot I can do either other than truck through. °°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°° #hiplabraltear #hipsurgeryrecovery #hipimpingement #tired #endowarrior #endometriosis #chronicpainwarrior #chronicillness #chronicpain

Day 2 on the beach. After walking a bit with no crutches I had to have the hubby go get them. Even though the sand is pretty packed my hip isn’t quite ready for the strength it takes to walk on it. Week 6 post op of my #hiplabraltear. Recovering in Florida 💦🏖🌴is SO rough. 🤣 #hipsurgery #hipsurgeryrecovery #crutchlifeisntoveryet #labralrepair #fitness #fitover50 #sohip #6weekspostop #instafit #instafitness

I felt ambitious this morning. I got up. I got dressed. I put on make up. But I sat and did some homework and my pelvis pain flared up so bad that I needed to lay down. I got some stuff down but now I'll be reading my textbooks in bed. Trying to stay positive but this surgery really has thrown me for a loop. It seems with each victory comes with a lot of set backs. My pelvis just aches. I want to cry. #hiplabraltear #hipsurgery #hipsurgeryrecovery #hip #hipimpingement #fatigue #endometriosis #endowarrior #endowarriors #chronicillness #chronicpainwarrior #chronicpain

This surgery is no joke y’all. Ignore all texts, emails and social media posts from me over the next few days as whatever I say, is the full and complete responsibility of the pain meds. 😂 ⠀⠀ Surgeon had to cut my ligaments in half, scrape away some bone, sew my torn labrum, put in two screws then suture my ligaments back together. I’ve got two pain meds, one for nausea, and one so my body doesn’t try to regrow the bone that my surgeon just cut out. 🤢 But I’m already home and getting to know my bed really, really well. But spoiler alert: it hurts. ☹️ ⠀⠀ #faisurgery #hiparthroscopy #labraltear #surgery #hipimpingment #running #denver #colorado #motherrunners #denverruns #runnersofinstagram #momswhorun #hipinjury #hiplabraltear #justkeepswimming #ipreview via @preview.app

Pushed a little too hard today. I went to the chiropractor, hobby lobby and to BOB's. Then my mother in law brought me out for lunch. My hip is pretty swollen but my hip is only a little crabby. My pelvis and tail bone hurts like the dickens though. 5 and a half weeks out. Still on crutches. I am getting around a bit better. I am a bit frustrated that car rides and sitting are still excruciating. This is such a slow freaking recovery. I felt today I was making big strides. Nights make me aware that I'm still recovering and need to be aware of how i push my body. °°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°° #hiplabraltear #hipimpingement #hiplabrumtear #hipsurgeryrecovery #hipsurgery #chronicillness #chronicpain #chronicpainwarrior

6 months post op right side hip arthroscopy, and I finally felt comfortable enough to go for a jog! It was about a mile and a combination of walking and jogging up and downhill. I felt so free and refreshed. I can't even begin to explain. I kept smiling and looking at the night sky, brimming with tears of gratitude. 6 weeks left until it's time for my left hip surgery. I know this evening I'll probably feel tomorrow, but it will be a memory that keeps me pushing toward the light at the end of the tunnel.💪😄💓 Begin reflection: Take care of your bodies y'all, and just because someone looks healthy doesn't mean they are. I'm about to be 29 and this past year and a half of hip issues has given me a lot of insight and time to reflect. Some of my closest friends and most of my family brushed off my surgery as no big deal topped with justifying their callousness. Most of my co workers don't get my daily struggle with things they take for granted such as being able to sit comfortably or being able to easily pick something up off the floor. Elderly look at me inquistively or with irritation because I haven't paid my dues. An icepack is still constantly tucked away in my purse. Travel is in my blood and currently I'm unable to sit long enough to do so, so I can't visit my hometown when it's a mere 4 hrs away and I can't fly to see my mom. Etc. I constantly catch myself watching peoples postures(my labral tear was caused by a severe muscle imbalance caused by waitressing mixed with some natural hip impingement.) I flinch when I see some meds my residents take for pain. A lot of pain killers are crap for you and don't resolve the issue but my residents have some issues that are so far gone I think they(along with many people in general) are okay masking when their body yells at them. But it's not okay. Be proactive with your health. On every level. Physically. Emotionally. Spiritually. Break the cycles of justifying lack of self care and not loving on yourself. Break the cycles that are rooted in ego and insensitivity as well. It's okay to be compassionate toward others. Ask them how they are. Listen to their response. Smile at them. Let Higher love guide you.

Graduate school semester 2 starts tomorrow. I'm much less anxious this semestee than last semester. I feel like I found a groove. While there's a lot of reading, the truth is it will be nice to feel productive while still recovering from hip surgery. It was a bit of a blow to know returning to work is still several weeks away (at least 6 weeks from today) and getting off crutches is still at least another 2-3 weeks away. It Will be nice to feel that I am doing something beyond rotting my brain with more Friends binge watching. Ready or not, here we go.

This world we live in is magic. . Over the past two weeks I’ve witnessed so much magic. Between breathtaking views to meeting amazing people , to marrying the most thoughtful and loving man. Sometimes the magic that exists in this life is so blatantly in front of your face that you can’t ignore it (like being on a red sand beach in the middle of the pacific😍) but other times, circumstances cloud your view of the magic and it almost seems like it doesn’t exist - I know you’ve been there too. . I’m about to go from one extreme to the next. The magic of Hawaii to having legit hip surgery in a few days. . I don’t share this part of my life too often, because I consciously choose not to live in a mindset that focuses on struggle and pain. But as much as there is magic here, there is also struggle. And maybe the magic wouldn’t mean as much if it wasn’t for the hurdles...🤷🏻‍♀️ . My point in writing this out is to remind myself to focus on the good things when they aren’t right in front of me- even when things are super tough over the next few weeks during my recovery. . I might share bits and pieces of my recovery going forward, but to all my brides/clients that have booked with me, don’t worry at all!!! I’ll be taking some time off and killing it in physical therapy and I’ll be back in the game so soon and ready for all my 2019 weddings and photo shoots & I can’t wait!!! . xoxo

Post @parkrunuk cuddles from my favourite running supporter.🐶🐾This wee Cockapoo was the key to staying cheery last year when I couldn't run - he was very good at providing cuddles and kisses when ever they were needed and now I'm fit again I'm hoping we can treat him to his own park run soon! Today's run came out 27.45 which I'm pretty pleased with, 46 seconds quicker than last week means the continued hard work at physio is paying off. Not getting carried away upping the mileage too much is also helping. It is really hard not not slip into old habits of running every day, I can definitely feel the addiction coming back but being strong and following medical advice will be key to hopefully improving that time further!🤞🏼#runningmotivation #run #running #parkrun #parkrunning #parkrunuk #runningcomunity #runningcomeback #hipinjury #hiplabraltear #hiparthroscopy #londonparkruns #cockapoosofinstagram #runningwithdogs

Saw a different PT today. And it was an absolute night and day difference. Pretty much, every time I went to PT, I'd be in tears and have days of misery after. I was making some progress but at the cost of constant, excruciating pain. New PT confirmed last regime was way too aggressive and did not have enough understanding of the pelvic floor or how to accommodate my train-wreckiness. The overly aggressive PT has set me back a few weeks. Crutches for another 2-3 weeks minimum. No work for another 6 weeks. He wants me to go back to pelvic floor PT in a few weeks because there is so much tension. While I'm sore and achy, this is completely different from being in tears and the continuous sharp and violent pain. The other thing was is that my PT works with one client at a time, similar to the pelvic floor PT. I asked him if that was standard and he said yes: 1 person at a time. As much as I hate to treck into NYC for things, I want this done right. I'm much more satisfied with the new PT. Some exercises are the same but there is a lot more focus on strength than ROM. #physicaltherapy #pelvicfloordysfunction #hiplabraltear #hiplabrumtear #hipimpingement #hipsurgery #hipsurgeryrecovery #hip #pain #pelvichealth #pelvicfloorphysicaltherapy #endowarrior #endometriosis #chronicpainwarrior #chronicillness #chronicpain

I managed to sleep a decent amount last night. My hip is swollen today. Groin aches. It aches a bit but it is significantly better after the break from PT. I can do bridges, some gentle stretching. Pelvis pain is pretty calm. That just flares up out of the blue now without provocation. Tomorrow I go to NYC to see the more seasoned sports PT that has a better understanding of hip issues and pelvic floor issues. I hate that everything spazzed out at once. Mentally, I feel in a better place than the last few days. My brother is going to come by to hang out. Even though it'll suck to go to NYC and be in a car, I'll be out of the house.

Definitely needed this foam rolling tonight! Sore muscles can make anyone not want to move but relieving that soreness through foam rolling can make it much easier to bear. I'm going to have to break out the massage balls I just bought as well so I can get deeper into my glute muscles. I feel so much more relaxed now. You might moan and groan through it but foam rolling really helps to reduce soreness, helping you feel better. Who else loves foam rolling? 🙋

📢Torn Hip Labrum Rehab: WITHOUT SURGERY📢 . . 🚫Yes it is possible to avoid the knife! ↪️Although, the literature is severely lacking in nonsurgical treatment options and outcomes for hip labral tears, in many cases, patients have been able to improve pain, quality of life and get back to the activities they love without surgery! . . ♦️Ok now that we have that out of the way, the femoroacetabular joint is a ball-and-socket joint essentially designed like a suction cup, where the head of the femur (the “ball”) is allowed to glide and roll throughout 360 degrees of movement in the acetabulum (the “socket”). The labrum is a fibrocartilage that helps maintain the “vacuum seal” of the femur in the acetabulum and improves the joint congruency during movement. When the “ball” becomes abnormal in it’s shape, it can cause shearing of the labrum in the “socket”….& this is how many people end up tearing their labrum. BTW that is an over-simplification, as there are a few other, less common causes such as trauma or accidents. . . ⬇️⬇️The goals of rehab are listed in the comments below(I ran out of room, sorry guys)⬇️⬇️ . . 🔶Here’s where I like to begin, let’s call this PHASE ONE: 1️⃣ Lateral PB Hip Mobilization with limited and pain-free IR/ER movement (for pain modulation) 2️⃣ Groin Mobilizations + Hip Flexor Mobilizations + Hamstring Mobilizations (based on individual patient examination & labral pathology) 3️⃣ Single Leg Glute Bridge + Hip Flexion 4️⃣ Plank Hip Extension + Abduction 5️⃣ Side Plank + Hip Abduction 6️⃣ Stability Ball 2 point Deadbugs 7️⃣ Stability Ball Hamstring Curls . 🔻I also give numbers 2-5 as homework, since they don’t require any equipment. I have my patients do 3 rounds, 15 reps of each exercise during round 1, then 10 reps of each exercise during round 2, then 5 reps of each exercise during round 3. . . 🔥These are good exercises for anyone to do, not just those with a hip labral injury! . 🍑TAG, LIKE, COMMENT, SPREAD THIS INFO🍑 . . @clinicalathlete #labrumtear #hiprehab #hipstrength #hippain #hipmobility #hiplabraltear #hiplabrumtear #femoralacetabularimpingement #hipimpingement #clinicalathlete

My surgery went okay.. less painful than my spinal fusion! It took longer than expected Bc I had a bone spur and at the very end, needed 6 anchors instead of 3, and had a seizure so I had to stay the night. . . Like I should've been home 24+ hours ago if it weren't for the complications. I had to have 6 anchors put in when usually it's 3 but I'm so hypermobile the surgeon couldn't believe it lol it's the most anchors he's ever done. Feeling better and will be ready for the next surgery (left hip) in a couple months! . .

So much progress yet so far from where I started... what was once an extremely easy thoughtless movement in the past takes so much work and mental energy to complete. Getting closer to squatting to 90 degrees... flexibility is still horrendous by the way I can’t keep my chest upright and not really being to break parallel. The journey is frustrating at times but I need to remind myself it’s only been two months and it will take four to six months to get back to everything. I know for certain that my 100kg backsquat pr from the Olympic lifting days is not going to be back any time soon... #hiplabrumrecovery #hiplabraltear #hiplabrumtear #roadtorecovery @arcadiaactiv

According to our most recent study published in Arthroscopy -The Journal of Arthroscopic and Related Surgery- the risk to total hip arthroplasty conversion following hip arthroscopy for FAI and labral tear was 3 times higher in patients with complete ligamentum teres tear.

I'm very frustrated. I heard from dr Bharam today, since PT has been flaring up my hip & groin so bad. He's unsure why my pelvis is suddenly freaking out on the left but he did bring up since the left has other things going on (my dumb ass left ovary and the #bullshithernia and pelvic floor dysfunction). At this point, he wants me to back off PT a bit and see if that can calm the flares. He also wants me to see a different PT in NYC to evaluate for any soft tissue issues. This sucks ass. I'm so tired of all this. I'd like to feel better. I'm very discouraged. Dr bharam reassured me that this isn't atypical at this point but this set back really is leaving me in a sour mood and sad. #hiplabraltear #hiplabrumtear #hipimpingement #hipsurgery #hipsurgeryrecovery #surgeryrecovery #endowarrior #endometriosis #adenomyosis #hysterectomy #chronicpain #chronicillness #discouraged #twobullshithernias #pelvicfloordysfunction #pelvicpain #pelvis #invisibleillness #pain #painsomnia #paingenerators

Cheers to new friends, new places, new goals 🍾🥂 . I a year ago I was ready for a new atmosphere. Everything and everyone around me just felt so stagnant. I was hungry for change and adventure. Moving to Illinois was a great decision. I may hate central Illinois but I'm so happy I decided to get out of my comfort zone and see what the world had to offer. Nothing about this move has been easy but everybit worth it. I've learned the power of positivity is incredible and that I have all the control over my own happiness. When I think about being stuck in Illinois I get down but when I think about all the growth I've experienced so far I'm filled with joy and pride.

I think I forgot about using the slides and weights together in the workout. Now my legs are like noodles 😂 So far, keeping my expectations at 4 workouts a week is much easier for me to handle. I'm still working on trying to balance work and life but I think it's at least moving in a more positive direction than it had been. Phew!

3 mth post op update: FRIDAY I GOT TO “JOG” for the first time since surgery!!! 🤩🤩🤩 It was a very slow trot around the therapy gym, but it was run progression! I continue with my strengthening workout and have added a lot of agility drills. Wooo! Talk about a good workout! I wasn’t this strong before surgery, even during the peak of all my training sessions and making the podium at races. I can do this workout without difficulty and would have struggled with this before. It’s really been an eye opener to me of just how important strengthening and agility is! This will always be my first priority when I’m back training for races! I just wanted to share one of my workouts/PT sessions. I’ve been MIA for awhile with posts! I go back to see Dr. Emblom at the end of this month!

Bad day today, pushed too much with my rehab at the weekend, I even managed to go out for lunch yesterday 🙌 However the feeling of good has bit me in the bum today 😕but I must remember with a big operation comes trials and tribulations. I must not rush my progress, I must not become impatient, baby steps and improvement will come and eventually stay without the pain 😁✊I’ve done it before, endured and come out the other side and reached my set goals in between having right hip operation January 2017 to now the left in December 2018. More goals to achieve but slowly does it, no rush as time passes anyway ✌️

Here's to probably another night of #painsomnia and aggravation. It's not so much the hip pain but its now the pain in my left side and pelvis. The hip is crabby but doesn't compare to the pelvic pain.

@_endowarriors posted this today and this was just so fitting. This recovery from my hip surgery has been no joke and has been incredibly challenging. This post was pretty spot on for today. As someone who has #chronicpain from multiple pelvic pain generators, I have been subject to such phrases as "are you better yet?", "there's no way you can have this pain", "your pain is between your ears, not between the legs", "you are an empty vessel now, what's left to even hurt?", "oh you are the train wreck pelvis your friend told me about!" And some of these quotes are directly from doctors. I'm lucky now that I have good doctors who believe my pain is real, but I know there are many who are not so lucky. To those struggling with pain today, know your pain is real and I believe YOU. * * * * #endowarrior #endometriosisawareness #endometriosis #endometriosisisreal #hiplabraltear #hiplabrumtear #hipimpingement #hipsurgeryrecovery #chronicillness #chronicpain #centralization #nervedamage #pain #painsomnia #yourpainisreal #adenomyosis #endo #endowarriors #endometriosissurgery #adenomyosisawareness #pelvicfloordysfunction #pelvicpain #pfd #twobullshithernias #hernias #multiplepelvicpaingenerators #paingenerators

I had no expectations going into this surgery. I just knew it needed to happen and to take anything that comes my way- all I know is days into my recovery I felt strong and that I had this- there was no way it was going to take me 6 months to recover. Im starting to think it’s going to take longer - sucks but it is what it is, I just want to be healthy again 💪🏼 until then I’m going to poke fun of all the changes my body is going to go through because it will give me that reminder of how I got this shit 🙌🏼and I will be coming back strong again💪🏼 ♥️💪🏼So crazy just what hip surgery does to your muscles- instantly shut down on my surgical side—- you see the muffin butt cheek I have now 🤣🤣🤣 Keeping my good side toned will help me come back slowly and just as strong. allowing me to be strong now crutching my body weight around. I got this 🙌🏼🙌🏼 3 weeks 2 days down and months to go until I’m strong again or hope🙏🏻 Depressing but I just really hope it will be worth it 💕🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻💕#confidence #hipsurgeryrecovery #myrecoveryjourney #hipreconstruction #hiplabraltear #recovery #noweightbearing #fitgirl #fitmom #staypositve #focused #healthy #strongwomen #strongissexy #strengthtraining #chickswithmuscle #momswithmuscles #fitover40 #fitmomof6 #fitfam #bodypositive #physique #igotthis #🍑 #strongbody #mybootyfellasleep

Woo hoo! Crushed a ride with @robinnyc and Cardio Barre Arms with @studiotoneitupjillian 💦💦💦 All I did was sweat! Brought the kiddos to my one year post op appointment this afternoon. They got to be in the little room watching me from behind the glass while I got my X-rays done and Harper was like “mommy’s skeleton” hahaha. It was so cute! My range of motion was great, X-rays were good and then the physical therapist checked me out. I will go back in August for both hips and then won’t have to go back until my 5 year mark. 💁🏻💁🏻💁🏻💁🏻 What a journey this hip surgeries gave me BUT they taught me things that I needed much help with internally. Now to keep on making progress and improving with my workouts and keeping my hips in good shape.

Hey there. I’m Tristen 🤗 2 years ago I started CrossFit with an open mind and a desire to live a better life. This gym brought me a new family found through Crossfit and lifting. I started making fitness goals, participating in the community, and looking forward to working out again. This summer, I discovered I had a disc herniation in my lumbar spine and labral tear in my hip that had me limping and in a good amount of physical and mental pain. I came home to Buffalo after being away all summer to my CrossFit family ready to help me recover. My rehabilitation was not easy. It tested my mental and emotional stability and challenged me physically. I worked almost daily at my weaknesses and chased my mobility hoping I could just get back to normal. The thing is though...I’ll never be the same. I’m STRONGER more so than I’ve ever been in my life. I’m self aware. I’m capable of so much more now that I’ve trained my core, improved my positioning, my posture, and dialed into training my body like a well oiled machine and not abusing it. I quit my job as a part time massage therapist and got hired as an axe throwing instructor to change up my movement patterns while still in PT school (and because it’s flipping awesome 😎). I learned so much about myself and my body because of this place. CrossFit Nickel City has played an immense role in the athlete I am today. Shoutout to @the_barbell_operator @eat_live_lift @optimizehealthpt @movewell1on1pt and all the killer peeps @crossfitnickelcity @nickel_city_barbell_club for being there for me and helping me grow in muscles, confidence, and mindset 🏋🏻‍♀️💪🏻Love you guys ❤️Go Team Peach 🍑 Today’s nutrition and deadlift session: 4x8 @ 90,110,120,130# #fitgrad #ptstudentlife #fitnessgoals #rehabilitation #physicaltherapy #ptfirst #crossfitnickelcity #barbellclub #barbellbabes #axethrowingisawesome #liftshitupandputitdown #iliftyouliftwelift #strongerthighs #thickthighssavelives #strongerthanyesterday #mindset #movementismedicine #coreiseverything #movewellmoveoften #liftheavy #girlswholift #discherniation #hiplabraltear #recovery #teampeach #bootygains🍑 #musclesloading #deadliftsfordays #deadliftsession #whatarelegs

Dear 2019, it’s nice to meet you. For the record, these hanging around posts are not evidence of my desire to make a full-fledged “comeback”. Circus and aerial is my world, my mom performed single trapeze until she was seven months pregnant with me... this stuff is literally in my blood. The aerial world and the physicality needed to be and do the things I know how to and want to do represent my baseline. I want MY baseline athleticism back. For now I love these little moments of hanging, feeling my body again and being moderately pain free in most places. I am amazed by how distinctly these moments affect my mood, creativity and recovery. There is so much emotion tangled up in injury and recovery and I am so happy to have this space (my living room),this time and the amazing support system of friends and family to get through this. So grateful for all that and superficially, so fucking happy I still have at least two abs. Cheers to that 2019! #longpostalert #offthestrip #aerialsilks #sweatpants #homesweethome #hangingaround #circuseverydamnday #aerial #cirque #circusartist #performingarts #peopleareawesome #injuryrecovery #hiplabraltear #motivated #hello2019

Basement workouts are starting to happen again... Though majority of it is spent stretching and some small movements as the journey of full recovery continues. "Slow and steady" #hiplabrumrecovery #hiplabraltear #hiplabrumtear

Snuggles with #puppy . Today, similar to yesterday, was a lot of loafing about. @batmaneatsbae came over for a bit and we watched some television. Did my physical therapy exercises. I feel a bit iffy today but definitely much better than Monday. #hiplabraltear #hiplabrumtear #hipsurgery #hipimpingement #surgeryrecovery #endowarrior #endometriosis #chronicillness #chronicpain #pain #spoonie #spoonielife

I've been revisiting this mini program as a part of caring for more than just my physical health. What I have noticed is that the stronger my hip muscles are, the less pain I'm in, and that helps me have more energy for everything else. The reverse is true, too. The weaker my hip muscles are, the more pain I'm in, and the more exhausted I am. When I'm exhausted, it's difficult to maintain a positive mindset and my thoughts can quickly spiral into the negative. Even though I am tired right now, it's the "I'm going to sleep well tonight" kind of tired instead of the "I'm tired of battling pain" kind of tired. I'll definitely take the former. How about you?

I've pretty much been MIA over the last few days as I worked two double and one regular shift. It's really made it difficult for me to keep up with working out and even eating healthy. I'm trying to get back to some kind of "normal" with my routine so I don't fall too far off the wagon. I just don't feel right if I can't exercise and eat healthy. So bear with me as I get back to basics with focusing on sleep, water intake, nutrition, exercise, and self-care. After all, aren't we all worth it?

2018 was not the year I thought it would be; while expecting a different outcome, 2018 became more about learning, self-reflecting, and laying groundwork. It wasn’t the “comeback year” I anticipated, but the “build a foundation” year I desperately needed. I said “yes” more while learning to let go of things in life that no longer served purpose. I learned to stop paralyzing myself before I have a chance to walk (and learned just what a gift ‘walking’ can be!) I loved, felt loved, experienced immense loss, and profound joy. All surrounded by good humans I am lucky to have in my life. 2018 was full of more lessons than accomplishments... I’m ready to put all of those lessons to use in 2019 while chasing the light at the end of the tunnel 🔥 #evolveproject

Today is 3 weeks post op. I had PT today. My range of motion is on point for where it needs to be (90°!!!!) But I'm hurting soooooo bad now. Icing and resting the rest of the day. #hiplabraltear #hiplabrumtear #hipsurgeryrecovery #hipsurgery #hipimpingement #surgeryrecovery #hip #endowarrior #endometriosis #chronicillness #chronicpain

To say 2018 was life altering, would be an understatement. I pushed every single limit I’ve ever had. From diving head first into making interior and exterior doors, to having the most creative, and productive year I’ve ever had doing anything. The woodworking is my vice, it gives me a chance to distract and a huge reward when I’m finished. There is no other feeling greater than creating something in my mind, then creating it with my hands!! Nothing. I’ve not posted in about a month. It’s taken me at least this long to accept that I have torn labrum in both my hips. It is the most incredible pain, and I have to use crutches most of the time. I’m not able to lift anything or even be on my feet for any length of time. So the doormaking business is on hold right now. I have one surgery tentatively planned for February 5th, with 3-6 months rehab on the other side of that. Then to address the other side, which up until last week was my good side🤦‍♂️ For a while I was posting motivational, or positive quotes....regarding “limitations”, and “hope” among other things. Ironically enough I may have posted those at the time for my future self. This life can be trying, it can be so so beautiful and the next minute turn to despair. Sometimes you don’t know you’re in an adventure until it’s over. But sometimes, they’re rare, but they do happen, sometimes you’re lucky enough to be aware of these moments as they happen. I encourage you to breath deep those moments. Hold on to them and know that nothing is forever, everything changes. It can happen so fast. Life is a continual struggle to balance those good and bad times. Maybe that’s why its so bad right now, because it was too good and life had to intervene and put me in check, or maybe I’ll just go crazy trying to figure out the why’s and the how’s😳. I hold on to the hope of getting back into the shop at some point in 2019, but it may be a while.

Today is quite a bit better. Yesterday I potatoed all day, other than my PT exercises. PT exercises and PT flare up the pain pretty bad. I still need Advil/Tylenol around the clock. But today is the first day in a while the pain is managed. I am absolutely wiped out again. This is a very up and done recovery. When I feel good, I easily overdo it and am miserable for days after. It is much easier to flare post op. Today brings more potatoing, PT exercises and I will try to look at stuff for my classes coming up, but truth be told, we all know I'll be playing donkey Kong. #hip #hipsurgery #hiplabraltear #hiplabrumtear #hipimpingement #hippain #endowarrior #endometriosis #chronicpain #chronicillness #coffeeselfie #surgeryrecovery #hipsurgeryrecovery #recovering

Today marks 1 year post op on my second hip surgery. For the newbies that follow me...I had labral tears in both of my hips and had surgery on both sides. This surgery definitely took me longer to recover from then the first. My surgeon and therapist were the best. Best part was that my therapist got to be in on my surgeries and observe. She truly was amazing from keeping me sane and being much more than a therapist could. Prior to my first surgery I was balls to the wall with being I guess obsessed with working out and sticking to a schedule. With the first surgery it taught me to not be obsessive about working out and if a day came that I couldn’t fit one in then no biggie. With this second surgery it taught me about change. One thing is I struggle with change wether good or bad. Change is good and change happens for a reason. The change this time is with my workouts. For my older followers you knew me to be all about Beachbody. I still love those workouts just my hips do not and not really recommend. Cross training is what I am supposed to do. A good friend of mine got me into @toneitup and I didn’t realize that it was going to be a good change. So thanks to @brittanyriley22 😘 I can run, walk, do the elliptical, TIU daily moves and now use my Peloton with no hip issues!!!!!!!!!! My scars don’t look too bad being a year post op but are not even with my left hip. Drives me bonkers. 😂 I will see my surgeon soon for my one year post op and I’m sure I will pass with flying colors. Might just need to crack open a bottle of wine to celebrate my 1 year on my right hip. 🍷

Post-op day 8 from #hipsurgery, looking at me and @kiah.ritchie swag from our short long distance running career. We’ve ran a lot of 5k’s but we’re pretty proud of our half’s. Can’t wait to see what we get into next. #hiprehab #surgication #hiplabraltear #runninginjury #hiplabralrepair #femoralosteoplasty #physicaltherapy #physio #physiotherapy #physicaltherapist

Reflecting back on this day, this year, and the challenges I have overcome in the past. I think sometimes we forget, block out, or try to not remember the pain, the hurt, the suffering, but today I look back and remember it with gratitude in my heart. My hips and I have been on a journey together for a while now. I remember being diagnosed with adult hip dysplasia in 2014 and hearing I would need a PAO (periacetabular osteotomy) surgery. I remember researching what that was and freaking out. The previous year, I had major surgery to remove the synthetic mesh that was placed after my desmoid tumor was removed and completely reconstruct my abdominal wall with my own muscle. I was in the hospital for five days, had drains coming out for me for two weeks afterwards, was told my abdomen physically would not be able to carry a child, and I could not work as a physical therapist for a year. It was a lot. And now, another major surgery where they are going to break my pelvis in four places to build me a new hip joint? This is one of the largest orthopedic surgeries a person can have! Are you sure, God? Can I go through that again? Am I strong enough? I am, I can, and I did. Three more times to be exact. Bilateral PAOs, a surgery to remove all the hardware a year later, and then bilateral hip scopes two years later to repair the labrum and impingement on both sides. It has been a journey. I was on a walker for six weeks after each PAO. Lots of physical therapy after each surgery. The irony of it all...the physical therapist had now become the patient. For years I had shown people how to use a walker, and now I was using it. Can I just say, it is much different when you are the patient? I thought I was an empathetic and compassionate person before, but when you go through something personally, when you experience something like that in your body, you become the expert in it and see things in a completely different light. Today, December 29th, is known as my right hip surgery day, as I had my right hip PAO on this day in 2014, and my right hip scope in 2016. Sometimes you may have to face a battle more than once to win. <Continued in comments> ⬇️⬇️⬇️

Today's a lousy day. Yesterday I went to a friend's house for a bit and it was too much. Too many stairs, too long in the car. Did my PT exercises. They are so hard and they suck. Two cause extreme pain into the pelvis so I need to bring this up with the PT. I wasn't feeling great yesterday and it just left me in an awful flare today. Almost 3 weeks since hip surgery, and this is what I've learned: 1-stairs are the worst. They create the worst pain as does sitting in regular chairs. 2-the catching/stabby/sharp pain is worse with PT, in particular, exercises that bring flexion above 60°. 3-the sharp/stabby/squeezing pain that shoots into the groin and abdomen happen most regularly with "tummy time" and the one kneeling quad stretch. My core is incredibly weak. 4-for every ok day, I have 3-4 bad days after. 5-this recovery blows. This is incredibly mentally and physically taxing. I feel like a baby for whining but this really friggin hurts. I know in a few months i will be so happy I did this but right now I regret it. What's the worst is that I am not sleeping great. I'm sure if I was sleeping better, I'd feel better. :/ #hip #hiplabraltear #hiplabrumtear #hipimpingement #hipsurgery #hipsurgeryrecovery #hippain #surgeryrecovery #healingisnotlinear #endowarrior #endometriosis #ouch #pain #painsomnia #chronicillness #chronicpain #spoonie #spoonielife

I don’t usually like motivational quotes because one quote can be interpreted completely different by another! Plus most quotes are just put out by people who talk the talk, but do not walk the walk, and lets face it, are usually board. So yes, I’m board being stuck indoors and had another bad night, but I was up at 7am, on the bike for 15 minutes then back in bed for an hour. Then hauled my backside out of bed to have my first proper shower ✋️Along with some pain comes improvement 😬😃🙌 and I was back on the bike again. This quote suits me at this current time, as I’m picking up my sword to fight again 💪So for others who are currently in rehabilitation / re- development stage in their life this quote may help you too 😉 onwards and upwards 👍

Something that I've learned is that you benefit far more by focusing on the exercise, proper form, and muscles you're working. It also helps to reduce risk of injury 😁
