Life is really hard @garyvee. People spend their days worrying about work, school, finance, things they have no control of and even worrying about what the fuck other people think... Do yourselves a favor and stop doing that shit, please. Life is too short to worry about things that don’t define who you are on a macro level. Life is too short to allow yourself to be offended by a post on Facebook or even envying a life you see on social media that is not your own. Money is cool too but laughter is free and love doesn’t cost a thing.
Point being: Chill the fuck out, especially this time of year. Look at the people around you, think about what makes you happy, think about why you do the things you do. Stop stressing yourself out over things that society puts an emphasis on. Sometimes you gotta hit the pause button and reflect on the things you have... Happy Holliday’s everyone...

#transformationtuesday I call this fit to fat (due to unforeseen circumstances) to fit over these past four years even though I’m trying to be a much better and stronger version of what I was in 2014 before my life changed forever!! As I always tell people the old Kel is no more and the new Kel was given a second chance at life and with this 2nd chance at life, I must do even greater things then I was doing before!!
-
My goal and hope by posting this is to inspire at least one person to achieve his/her goals rather it’s a fitness/health goal, career goal, or any goal!! Because if I can get in this kind of shape despite my limitations, disabilities, and all the other issues I deal with everyday as a result from my severe brain injury, you can achieve whatever goals you set your mind to as well!!
-
I’m a living testimony that with hard work, determination, and faith in the MAN above, you can achieve anything despite your situation, limitations, or what anyone says!! And I’m just getting started too, you haven’t seen nothing yet 😬 2019 is going to be lit 🔥🔥 Stay tuned!! All the praise and glory goes to God 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽

I could care less about pictures with celebrities just ask @amandaguimaraes_ she has a few stories and never cared about meeting them while working at the San Diego Sports Arena (yah that was back in the day)... but Dr. Daniel Amen and his clinic are a true blessing for so many with Traumatic Brain Injuries he is an Angel 😇 I had to make this a memory! I wish I could tell him how thankful we are! He is one of my hero’s!

I've always focused more on shoulder workouts than on chest workouts, I do them the same day for this reason. Ladies, do you do the same? Guys, are chest workouts a big part of your gym routines? I wanna hear about this! #chestday #shoulderday #girlswholift #fitnessmotivation #tellme

Sweaty faced after two successful workouts and being back at work today!
Recovering since the crash has been long and frustrating. I’m finally back at work part-time (2 months later) and just starting to get back to working out. Coming to terms with the fact that the Minneapolis police won’t pursue a criminal case against the person who hit me and fled the scene on foot has been hard. My short term memory is still shoddy and I have headaches daily. It has been a lesson in patience as I have had to accept my body and brain’s current limitations with the hope that I will be 100% in a matter of weeks, months, or years.
But, there has been so many silver linings to this shitty situation. Through it all, @jordan_theurer has been amazing, as usual. He’s a “good man in the storm”, as they say. Nothing fazes him. There is a slight possibility he’s a superhero.
Other silver linings: I was never able to meditate before the accident. Because of my anxiety and OCD, I was never able to “turn my brain off” completely. When I would try to meditate, I would be thinking of 20 other things I should be doing at the moment. I don’t know if the crash knocked something loose in my brain, but for the first time in my life, I am able to meditate.
I have also really started to feel an endorphin high when working out! I have been thinking about what Elle Woods says in Legally Blonde: “Exercise gives you endorphins; endorphins make you happy. Happy people don’t just shoot their husbands - they just don’t!” I finally get it. It feels good to feel really freaking good ☺️ #tbisurvivor #tbirecovery #roadtohealthy #mentalhealth #happinessjourney #endorphins #sweatlife #ellewoods

Guys! After the completely unexpected experience of being struck by a car at 48mph last year while in a pedestrian crosswalk and the ongoing recovery from the injuries I sustained, I CANNOT stress the importance of health insurance enough. Please head to healthcare.gov and make sure you get coverage before the 15th!

No jump shots. No ferns. No memes. Not this time. I’m going to give it to you straight:

If you need health insurance for 2019, the deadline to get covered is December 15. Head to HealthCare.gov today. Most people can find a plan for less than the price of a monthly cell phone bill.

Go to HealthCare.gov and pass this on — you just might save a life.

My Guardian Angel and July 16, 2010. The day when life became forever changed! And that was just the beginning! I've discovered so much about myself and my life since that day. I found strength, spirituality, how to live with the effects of a severe TBI, a way thru anxiety and PTSD, my being Afro-native (Ojibwe), Autism Spectrum (which explained a lot of my youth), new friends, who my real friends are, and aren't (including family), a, path towards peace and the motivation to live the best life that I can! As long as you exist in this corporeal world you will have highs and lows. The lows will make you appreciate the highs as well as give you knowledge and strength! The view from the heights will make all the other ish you go through worth it. Enjoy spreading your wings and fly!

After years of taking NSAIDs, anti- inflammatory, muscle relaxants, and painkillers for chronic pain, myofascial pain and muscle spams, I developed acid reflux in 2010. By 2015, I had a recurring gastritis that had me in and out of the ER for dehydration from vomiting. I wanted to die lying there in the ER for the upteenth time. Many TBI patients suffer with GI problems. The meds are just a band-aid.

In comes a 40-year retired Army nurse Rosalie Vilar who practices holistic healthcare. An intestinal cleanse and dietary change that included probiotics saved my life. I have this milk kefir that I grow, as a Smoothie, with alkaline fruits (blackberries, blueberries, raspberries) and ripe banana twice daily. Never had any recurrence of Acid Reflux or Gastritis since.

Healing from a concussion not only affects you physically but also mentally and spiritually. I personally believe it is mental battle more than a physical. My basketball coach would tell my team, if the other team can defeat you mentally then they’ve already won. And I found that the same goes for brain injuries. If you believe you will never recover, you will not! Change the way you think about your recovery and what you expect from it and your body will adjust accordingly.

In the CBG blog, I will go into depth the importance of keeping a positive mindset and ways I was able uplift myself during my lowest and darkest moments. All to come January 2019!🧠🏋️‍♀️💙

Personally, I love this one. So many times I’ve caught myself living in fear. Fear of judgement, fear of more pain. But now I’m free from that, I know that taking chances is okay. But living in fear, isn’t.

This little guy has been a lifesaver in my #traumaticbraininjury recovery and is my go to thing to help with early stage symptom flare ups.

Regardless of who it is that is wanting you to fail, doesn't support you, isn't on your side, brings constant negative thoughts and honestly gives less than a crap for you, the only person you have to justify your efforts to is yourself! Only you can live YOUR life!
The government's institutionalized system is geared toward keeping you/us, from being your/our best. EFF THE SYSTEM and be the best YOU that can be! I know that I will! Will you?
