Yesterday was bittersweet. After being put through numerous strength and plyometrics tests I was officially released from #acl physical therapy. Yes, I graduated. My wonderful therapist told me it was time to spred my wings and fly. I'm going to miss her and all the help she gave me. I highly recommend @phoenixphysical and Kelly Ivey. .
.
I still have a lot of work to do and a long way to go but I won't quit! The toughest part will be the psychological readiness. With that said, I can almost taste the mud of my #ocr return. See you all soon! @teamsocialmisfits @spartan40gogogo @savagerace @spartanrace @ruggedmaniac @bearcrawlocr @warriordash @terrainracing @we_are_strongasoak @theoriginalwarriorpak @hoplite_outfitters @burstenergygel ~

🔸Successfully stand and balance on sore leg whilst shaving good leg
🔸 Walk downstairs like a normal human being
🔸 Survive arms only Asshole Bike
🔸 Link more ring dips than ever before
🔸 Realise you’ll be jacked AF with all this upper body work

Thanks to some great advice from @good_n_you and @lindseyrunks, I took my back rest off for my ride on the weekend.

The result was that I had much more confidence and bike control as I was able to actually move around on the bike more. This helped to make riding feel more natural as it did before my injury.
With the greater control and confidence I. Was able to ride trails much faster than I was expecting, aswell as riding some tight switchbacks and narrow single-track. 📸 @wallache_photos .

Things aren't going so well right now. #clippertheterrier and I are living in the car, healthcare is on hold until further notice, no prospects for suitable work, and no fuel with which to get around and keep the a/c running for the pooch on these hot days. About the only thing we can do to keep sane is walk the trails around town. A decent night's sleep and proper diet would help, but it seems that that's asking a bit much from life

It is tough to realise that sometimes poor mental health can be just as hard a poor physical health. So thankful for your love and support 💖 #conquerer #feelinggood #ptsd #lymie #remission #strong #downnotout #mentalhealthawareness #quoteoftheday

I get asked alot about how I get into my bike. So I thought I would get a video of it.

I need two people to lift me into the bike and one to hold it. What you can't see in the video is that I have two straps holding me into the seat, one for my legs and one for my hips. My feet then lock into clip less pedals. @pitcrewnz

Hello World! The RedTent is a PMDD Haven (started out as and still is a Discord Server). Our Instagram will be a visual journal into our lives with PMDD and our journey to coexist with it. ————————————— This past cycle was 44 days and I drew this comic then and it’s essentially what was going on the entire rest of my cycle. Sometimes the self sabotage seems endless this late in my cycle. When you’re dealing with irrational feelings it’s good to distract yourself with things that give you comfort but it’s also easy to get carried away/obsessed and just sit there the whole day and you’ve done nothing else at all, priorities, responsibilities, food, water.. then all of a sudden you’re reminded that you have to go to work and que instant downward spiral of your mind, panic sets in and a meltdown/implosion is inevitable. This is the time when help is need to complete some of the most simple things... And you wish for your period harder than you think might be healthy. ~Luna—————————

Endometriosis awareness post 🎗️ I was diagnosed in 2009. Have had multiple surgeries, numerous rounds of severe hormone replacement drugs such as Lupron. It’s more then painful periods. It’s a chronic illness that takes over your whole body. There is no cure. For the last two months I have been battling one of the worse endo flare-ups I’ve had in a very long time. I was advised by my ob doctors to let my body rest . No heavy lifting 😳 no strenuous activity of any kind. To say I was depressed was an understatement. Today was the first day in a long time I’ve felt sort of back to normal. This is the last round of lupron I will take. If this is a fail to find me relief from the pain , I’ll be making a final decision to undergo a full hysterectomy. If you have endo , your not alone . Keep pushing forward and take it day by day . #Endometriosis #endowarrior💛 #chronicpain #chronicillness #indivisibledisease #endosister #pelvicpain #pelvicinflammatorydisease #downnotout #justincaseyouthinkifelloff #igfitmoms #fitlife #keepgoing #trusttheprocess #fitmom #womanempowerment #chronicfatigue #endometriosisawareness @endofound @endo_relief @newyorkendometriosis @endowarriorshirt

Yesterday I took a whacked #softball to my left shoulder. I dropped fast. It is still not happy. Yet I still showed up to #crossfit this morning & let my right arm have it. Gave the left arm modifications so it wouldn't feel left out. I think that's what it means to keep showing up.

10k power walk this morning. By no means quick but great to get out and have something to focus on. .

I've no idea what will come of my hospital appointments this week and whether I can run or perhaps walk the races I've got lined up 🤷‍♀️ Apart from a huge bruise and scrape on my left knee, my legs are fine from my fall so if I can use them I will! 🙏🙏

Repost from @wheels_and_paws_ using @RepostRegramApp - Massive shout out to @cxpracing for making me up a custom bracket for my seat. This is to add a little more stability and to stop the bucket seat from twisting. Can't wait to test it out tomorrow!

Soooo. Real talk time. As you may or may not know, I've been a psychiatric inpatient for about a month now.
.
I was initially admitted to an all-female ward in a specialist mental health hospital in Darlington, but I was then transferred to a mixed acute adult mental health ward in a hospital in Northallerton.
.
I never expected to end up in Yorkshire, much less on psych ward! It is a terrifying, boring, yet somehow inspiring place (that's true for both Yorkshire and psych ward btw!). The staff are amazing and do a hard job for little recognition. I'm truly grateful for the NHS and everything they've done and continue to do. .
So how did I end up here? Shit got weird; from both a mental health point of view and in my personal circumstances. My diagnosis is bipolar disorder.
.
This actually makes a lot of sense - some of the more intense and impulsive aspects of my personality I can now identify as symptomatic. It also explains the reckless highs and crippling lows that have been part of my life for the past decade or so.
.
So why am I sharing all this now? Firstly, I'm aware I've been completely off the radar for a while, and I've found it hard to reach out to people around me, so thank you for the love, support and kind words. I really appreciate it. .
Secondly, because it's okay. We still have a huge stigma surrounding mental health, but it's okay to admit that things aren't going well. It's okay to not understand. It's okay to say you're suffering and it's okay to accept that you need help. Because help is always there, and even in the darkest of storms, there'll be a break in the clouds.
.
Sun goes up. Sun goes down. Nothing else fucking matters.

I took this picture at the @crossfitgames one year ago today. I was so excited to get that close to @camillelbaz. Unfortunately she was injured in this event and had to drop out. She had shoulder surgery and his back this year. She is my inspiration as I recover from my shoulder surgery. #downnotout #crossfit #fitfifties #muscleups

The first run in a very long time where I felt utterly defeated. I know they are bound to happen from time to time but still sucks when it happens. I didn't get a chance to get out before the heat and it was brutal outside, hot and humid. A five mile fast day was on the schedule but I listened to my body at mile 1.5 and turned around as well as bumped the pace down. I am all for pushing through pain and mental toughness, but sometimes you have to listen to your body and just like with high risk winter summit attempts you MUST respect the turn around. I felt weak, my legs were on fire only a half a mile in and I just knew I was risking injury pushing on. I think tweaking my schedule to make my travel plans work was a big factor. So here is to resting and traveling tomorrow and then see how my long day goes Saturday AM. I may be defeated today but I will get back up, and as long as you dont quit you can never lose👍 #defeated #difficultrun #hardrun #downnotout #nevergiveup #never_quit

Sooo I competed at The Strongest Woman in the world this weekend in Norway .... this weekend was extremely challenging to say the least but I feel like this video explains how my weekend went the best lol... I had to speed up the video to fit it all in but if you listen to it - you can hear/see the enormous amount of support and love my friends, teammates , the crowd and @strongmancorporation showed for me .. I feel like that was hands down the best part of this competition. I was obviously aggravated I couldn’t compete at 100% . Who wouldn’t be !? But these people .... are amazing and supported me every step of the way . I want to say thank you to you all for the encouragement and keeping my spirits up ! I felt so loved and just extremely happy to have so many wonderful and uplifting people in my life . Thank you from the bottom of my heart ♥️ . (I’ll post more when I get back in the states so stay posted ;)
