Love this picture: 1998... shortly after my 16th Birthday. I was carrying a little baby in my belly and was so so so... scared.
Keep going, even when you’re scared. Hold your head up and just keep going.
Life has changed so much since this photo. I spent years working full time, finishing high school... literally up all night with my son, then dropping him off at day care, then going to class, picking him up, dropping him off with family and going to work... everyday... I knew I had to finish high school and then college, with my son by my side. I wasn't sure how to make that happen... and certainly had no clue what I was doing, as a mom, but I knew I had to keep going.
We. Just. Kept. Going.
I started college the year he entered kindergarten and graduated with my Bachelors degree, cum laude (while still working full time!), when he was in 4th grade.
Just keep going! Just keep going. You can do anything. #PROMISE
Sover som en kratta! Tar melatonin och lergigan runt 21, somnar runt 22 och vaknar 01😴 Sen är jag vaken i flera timmar för att ibland somna om runt 04. Brukar sova som en stock om jag väl lyckas somna. Vet inte varför jag vaknar utan att somna om. Någon med liknande problem? Finns det något annat sömnläkemedel som som håller hela natten? Funderar om cirkadin kan vara ett komplement...
working on debunking the myth that my life only consists of studying/school! as a studygram, one of the q's i get often is if i do anything besides school. & yes, i do!! instagram is NOT reality. these are just little snippets of a few seconds of my day. for the past year, i've been doing my best to promote a well-balanced lifestyle that doesn't mean depriving yourself of other life experiences. i hope to show you that yes, you can study hard but also open up your days to other activities like working out, reading, sleeping well, photography, hanging out with friends, etc. don't feel the need to give up on the things you want to do, because if you really want it, then you'll make it work. as always, peep my story for a look into my day. so, what do YOU do outside of studying? #selfcare#studybreak#lifebalance#wellness#selfcareinhealthcare#wellnessmedicine#premedstudent

Last night I was really stressed and frustrated. Everything was going well until I felt that same discomfort in chest, throat and arm. Which I did take my meds that was recommended. And electricity was gone again. Also, I had to take figure out some personal problems which added some extra stress. I woke up and realised I was worrying for nothing, I was stressing about things I can't change and simply ruined my night which I could have spent doing something useful or just relaxing and taking my mind of things that are bothering me. Today I decided no matter what, I won't stress over the little things I can't control. I m doing the best I can for my body and myself.
Mushroom Bourguignon #vegan#delish from veganheaven.org I have made this twice and it is my GO TO French recipe. Hearty and flavorful! OMG you must try this. I made in my Instant Pot which cuts down on time by several hours😉
Pure MD skin science products formulated with the Flourish f(x) complex to penetrate to the dermis layer of the skin - and not just sit on the surface - so you can achieve visible, lasting results. Flourish f (x) is full of anti-oxidants, anti-inflammatory, and cell regeneration ingredients to prevent skin damage from the inside out and improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and promote a naturally even skin tone by combatting free radicals. Each product is specially formulated to defend the skin from free radicals that prematurely age skin.
Free radicals are molecules with unpaired electrons, causing them to be unstable and chemically reactive. UV rays, pollution, and lifestyle factors like stress, alcohol, and smoking, stimulate free radical damage that leads to visible signs of accelerated skin aging, including fine lines, wrinkles, loss of elasticity in the skin, dull skin, discoloration, and finally skin cancer.
While sunscreen protects the skin from UVA and UVB rays, sunscreen may not protect the skin from all free radicals. The Pure MD products with the addition of the Flourish f(x) complex work to neutralize free radicals and protect the skin against oxidative stress. Incorporating a full regimen of the Pure MD products into your daily skincare regimen provides necessary protection from environmental damage.

Transformation. ✨ What do you really want? ✨ Why do you really want it? ✨ What is standing in your way? ✨ What will be different in your life once you achieve it?
Transformation is the highest outcome of self-compassion. Know your innate value, get real on what make you happy and what makes you suffer and take back control of your current and future self.
It doesn’t happen overnight, but I know we all have something amazing we are working to become 🌸

Matcha tea is derived from the Camellia sinensis plant. Concentrated in antioxidants, one cup of matcha is approximately equal to 3 cups of green tea! Reasons to swap your morning cuppa with a cup full of green earth juiciness:
Highly concentrated in antioxidants - counteracting free radical damage, protecting cells and tissues. Helping to fight inflammation.
Assists in weight loss. Matcha has been shown to enhance the bodies metabolic rate! Helping your body burn calories faster.
Matcha contains L-theanine. This mood boosting amino acid increases alpha waves in the brain enhancing mental relaxation, reducing your stress response as well as increasing focus and alertness. L-theanine also helps to modify your bodies response to caffeine without causing the drowsiness that often follows coffee intake.
If you are thinking of including matcha into your daily regime make sure you use ORGANIC matcha as non-organic matcha leaves often harbor contaminants including heavy metals, pesticides and fluoride.
Using organic match reduces your exposure risk to pesticides, however even organic leaves may contain substances that are harmful when ingested in large amounts. Therefore it is not recommended to exceed more than 2 cups per/day. 📸 borrow from @pinterest

Whether it’s a mental or chronic illness it can feel like a catch 22. It’s figuring out how to show up for life, family, or friends but then also showing up for yourself. It’s finding that threshold in which you may be comfortable enough to push while knowing you can’t push too much. It’s also knowing that it’s okay to completely take days off and not feel guilty about it.

***Wellness Wednesday*** The TRX suspension trainer, an intricate collection of straps, pulleys, handles, and carabiners that looks more like something a stuntman would use to dangle off a building than it does an incredible piece of workout equipment. This is my most favorite tools in my fitness tool box for myself and my clients I’m so lucky to instruct!
In actuality, the TRX—short for total-body resistance exercise—is a training tool that uses your body weight to put a new twist on some of the big-name exercises you’re already tackling in the weight room (Think inverted rows, jump squats, and push-ups, among many other things). Its “handles” can be used to anchor hands or feet, which allows for a ton of single-leg exercises that are hard to replicate using traditional dumbbells and barbells. By incorporating balance into the weightlifting equation, TRX forces you to engage your midsection and back throughout every movement. It is, in other words, hard as hell!
The device was created almost by accident by Randy Hetrick, a Navy SEAL who was trying to get in some fitness while deployed using only jujitsu belts and some spare parachute webbing. This early, rudimentary TRX caught on quickly with friends and colleagues. Hetrick completed a post-deployment stint at Stanford business school, and after a whole lot of prototypes, a version made of high-quality nylon is in gyms everywhere. (Worth noting: Although plenty of competing TRX-style suspension trainers are on the market, you’ll likely see the signature yellow-and-black straps in most training facilities.) Warning: The apparatus must be anchored to something before you trust its straps with your body weight. The brand sells a few accessories to make this easier, including a wall mount that screws into any ceiling or wall; for the security-deposit-conscious, there is a door anchor that requires no drilling. And just as with any sort of new workout routine, make sure you get the fundamentals down early.

Heartfelt gratitude today and always, to all the souls who have served for our freedom to be who we are today and do what we love.🙏🏼
As we relax and enjoy on this special day, here’s a yummy recipe from the talented @theessentialoilchef with a modern twist that you may like to try.
It’s based on the old classic Anzac Biscuit that the soldiers wives would bake to send to their loved ones at war. Amongst the history and other important traditions of today, Anzac biscuits are made and eaten in remembrance of our ANZAC’s. #WeWillRememberThem
