Siblings. Amirite!?! 😜

Siblings. Amirite!?! 😜

When the simplest things in life now become the hardest things. For every cardio session and lift I took for granted and never appreciated the strength i was given that day... I will forever remember this struggle I am in now as an appreciation and gift to just be able to move! My mind and body are not connecting together. This video is not to upset anyone but it’s to help you realize how the simplistic things are even milestones. Like getting on a bike and moving takes more mind and body connection then you ever realize. I want to helps others remember what you CAN do and not stress on what you CANT DO! If you didn’t hit a PR at the gym or if it’s an “off” day... step back and think about “hey, you know what... I still did it.. it wasn’t my best, but I got it done, I’m ABLE to get it done, and I’m grateful for that”.... That’s exactly how I felt this first day in PT. I couldn’t wait to even just touch a piece of gym equipment again. I was so excited to get on it and said “pshh I can ride this no problem”... then the realization hit....my mind was confused, my body wasn’t connecting, no mind-muscle connection, but I tried my best, used every piece of me to fight through it even if i couldn’t feel myself moving, couldn’t control my tremors, and knew it wasn’t my best . I thought to myself, “2 months ago I was hauling a$$ on an elliptical and lifting weight I took for granted... but I still got it done and I know I won’t take this moment for granted. I lost all ability to move and walk on Oct 5, 2018 and now I am moving on a bike. It may not be pretty or what i use to be able to do, but I thank god I can do it and i know he will give me the strength to come back and blow the arms off this bike!!” 😜🙏🏼😘 #painbecomesstrength

The one good thing that comes from being mistreated & put through Hell... Is that you learn what you deserve & what you will never put up with again. You learn to stand up for yourself. You learn to never allow things in your life that will take away your happiness & your light. It's hard to learn... it's absolutely scary... but it feels good. #PainBecomesStrength #BackboneNotWishbone #DontLetAnyoneTakeYourHappiness

As a kid, I thought I would grow up to be a vet or musician. Turns out I’m neither of them, but I can still sort out my own way to help animals.

Feel pain now or put it off until later? •
Ummm..B?! Right?
•
Nobody chooses to feel pain.  If we can put it off, why wouldn’t we? •
The thing is.  It doesn’t go away.  It’s still there.  And the longer we ignore it — honestly the bigger it gets. •
Yet we...
Don’t think about it. 
Don’t feel. 
Find a distraction. 
Stuff it down.
Push it away. 
And suddenly WHOOSH it’s gone. •
For now. •
Too many women are just getting through life with hidden pain.  Smiling. Working. Raising kids.  Over eating.  Over scheduling.  Staying “too busy”. Drinking a bit too much.  Over shopping.  Keeping friends at arms length.. nothing too vulnerable.  Smiling.  Ignoring.  Eating mindlessly. Gossiping. Procrastinating.  Scrolling social media — For hours.  Your partners think “everything’s FINE!” Yet there’s the binging Netflix, and carbs, even carrots — anything to distract. •
Anything to not feel.  Buffering pain. •
Sister.  If this is you. ..
•
Unfelt emotional pain — it messes with you. This pain you supposedly put off for later, decided to forget about, stuffed down so deep — it creates anxiety, it slams you down into depression.  It can feel like an unending agitation.  An irritation.  It’s emotional stress.  And it can make you sick. •
It affects all your relationships. •
Because it’s affecting you. •
But what if you just decided to feel it?  Let it bubble up.  Claim it. •
Yes it hurts. 
It’s f@cking pain. 
Yes it’s uncomfortable.  Maybe unbearable. •
And you will SURVIVE. •
It just needs to move through you.  So Let it. •
And then suddenly .. you’ll take a big breath and...silence.  Peace.  Headspace.  Heartspace.  Worthiness. 
And the best part?

The “pain” now feels freaking amazing.  It’s been turned into Strength.
Power. 
And you finally get to feel 💜

Unbound. 💜

To the woman in pain tonight. 💜,
Jenn

*hyper-mobility & hip Dysplasia awareness*

Since the age of about 7 I have been going to bed most night in agony! I remember as a child mam massaging my legs and ankles each night as I cried in pain. Now a life of heavy pain killers and hot water bottles are the only solution other than a hip replacement. I remember mam taking me to see the doctor when I was 13 and he said I may need a hip replacement earlier than most people... the reason behind the pain... hip dysplasia and hyper mobility! This means I have super shallow hip joints (hip dysplasia) so my hip is rarely ever in place and then the tissue around my joints are too weak (hyper mobility) so my muscles and ligaments can’t always hold my hips in place... and this is just my hips... most of my joints are effected by the hyper mobility... anyway... tonight is one of those nights where comfort feels miles away and this space cadet is ready for take off (codine is great 😜🥴👩🏽‍🚀) #hypermobilitysyndrome #hipdysplasia #awareness #painbecomesstrength #spacecadet #strongpainkillers #dislocation

When you go through pain the one valuable lesson learned in the end is to remain strong throughout it, to never let pain weaken you. The truly strong ones know that pain is necessary in order to gain strength and personal growth. It is your greatest pains that lead to your greatest strengths. So whatever may befall you, always stand strong and you will prevail ~ See The Angels • Voir Les Anges

My truth: I am still healing every day from pain that left scars in my childhood. Scars from 4 years ago. 2 years ago. Today. I am now 30 years old since crying over the fact that I was bullied every single day in middle school for 2 years. I still over the fact that my relationship with my mom had always been a distant one. The fact that I miss my dad terribly but cant find the courage to tell him so I just hide the fact that I'm not okay without him because he always says hes busy. The fact that my whole life, the people I had around me were only there for their benefits. The fact that every love relationship was based on fears, insecurities, illusions, demands and lies. I cry because for the first time in my life, I am standing in the middle of my truth, feeling completely alone and naked. And liberated to not be hiding from myself anymore. Because now the healing truly begins. Now, I know how to stand up without a mask. The healing hurts more than the wound for me because when you decide to heal, you admit the truth of what happened. It becomes real. The pain becomes real. .

A multitude of gains were made between these photos, both physically and mentally. For starters @danmcdaid7 gave me a propper masculine haircut to match my new found muscle tissue. Outside of that, I improved my conditioning, improved my posing, improved my peak weak strategy (thanks to the monster that is @lukasxxl ), improved my focus, improved my nutritional knowledge, and welcomed some new levels of pain to stretch myself beyond my previously known limits. Already looking forward to the next one, not long until we start turning the screw.

Being the best version of yourself and getting healthy won't always be easy, but anything worth having takes hard work! There may be some pain along the way. That pain will become strength! Don't give up if you feel pain or get sore. It is part of the process. Embrace the process!

Everything comes in terms of energy, vibration and frequency... Thus the people around us is similar in those elements... Let us surround ourselves with those who have a mindset appealing to our own which ultimately will traduce in synergy and evolution!

When the simplest things in life now become the hardest things. For every cardio session and lift I took for granted and never appreciated the strength i was given that day... I will forever remember this struggle I am in now as an appreciation and gift to just be able to move! My mind and body are not connecting together. This video is not to upset anyone but it’s to help you realize how the simplistic things are even milestones. Like getting on a bike and moving takes more mind and body connection then you ever realize. I want to helps others remember what you CAN do and not stress on what you CANT DO! If you didn’t hit a PR at the gym or if it’s an “off” day... step back and think about “hey, you know what... I still did it.. it wasn’t my best, but I got it done, I’m ABLE to get it done, and I’m grateful for that”.... That’s exactly how I felt this first day in PT. I couldn’t wait to even just touch a piece of gym equipment again. I was so excited to get on it and said “pshh I can ride this no problem”... then the realization hit....my mind was confused, my body wasn’t connecting, no mind-muscle connection, but I tried my best, used every piece of me to fight through it even if i couldn’t feel myself moving, couldn’t control my tremors, and knew it wasn’t my best . I thought to myself, “2 months ago I was hauling a$$ on an elliptical and lifting weight I took for granted... but I still got it done and I know I won’t take this moment for granted. I lost all ability to move and walk on Oct 5, 2018 and now I am moving on a bike. It may not be pretty or what i use to be able to do, but I thank god I can do it and i know he will give me the strength to come back and blow the arms off this bike!!” 😜🙏🏼😘 #painbecomesstrength

As a kid, I thought I would grow up to be a vet or musician. Turns out I’m neither of them, but I can still sort out my own way to help animals.

💗🐶😸We have raised HK$8,080 for rescue animals @hkscda this year.
.
Thank you everyone for the supports, especially to those who have come for the second year.
.
This #meaningful cause has carried my deepest pain, yet my deepest #love to a very important person in my life.

Monetary donations are defined and limited; but the love is priceless and endless.

✨“Pain Becomes Strength”💪🏻 Well today was an unsuccessful attempt at walking.. 😔 To think today i would have been competing in my pro debut at the @ocb_capecodnatural, but unfortunately things happen in life that are out of our control. It makes you appreciate even the little things in life. I’m not giving up hope that we will find answers to what’s going on. Huge congratulations to all those pro beauties that competed today! I loved watching all of you grace the stage today on my phone when I could! 😍  I’m beyond blessed to have my amazing and extremely strong boyfriend that isn’t letting go of me and won’t let me give up or fall down.. tucked me into bed and has been incredibly patient trying to get me moving again.. thank you babe for keeping my hopes high n faith high.. i love you @eurowned32 
And again thank you to all my beautiful friends and family for being strong for me.. there’s a reason I’ve had the nickname “Phoenix” (right @anationchampionships?).. whether it’s competing, life’s daily struggles, hardships, disappointments, failure, or health not being on my side... I know one thing for sure.. I have always been a fighter even at birth.. i was a 2 month premature twin with my heart not beating and i wasn’t breathing .. I was a little fighter then and still a fighter now.. “This too shall pass”. #painbecomesstrength #lwontgiveup #learningtowalkagain #faith #theywillfigurethisout #neurology #autoimmune #undiagnosed #staypositive #phoenix #hope #ocb #ocbpro #bikinipro #upstateempirefitness #ocbbikinipro #proathlete #bodybuilding #theocb

Being the best version of yourself and getting healthy won't always be easy, but anything worth having takes hard work! There may be some pain along the way. That pain will become strength! Don't give up if you feel pain or get sore. It is part of the process. Embrace the process!  Good health is a journey and not a destination. #healthcoaching #healthcoach #personaltrainer #personaltraining #healthandwellness #healthyliving #gethealthy #healthandnutrition #healthybodyhealthymind #healthieryou #foodasmedicine #healthylifestyle #eatwell #eatclean #eatgood #fitness #fitnessforlife #plantbased #plantbasedlifestyle #plantbasedeating  #greenville #greenvillesc #easley #easleysc #upstatesc #goupstate #goals #beabetteryou #painbecomesstrength #dontgiveup
