Never thought a couple of pills and a patch could have such a big impact on the way I feel!

TURN ON THE SOUND 🙌🏼 It’s been a while since I shared my workout video...do you miss them? 🤔🤣 Anyway, I HAD to share this one because my trainer is THE BOMB 💣
The perfect mix of tough love and love love 😘

What I have to offer you isn’t “just a workout” or “just a meal plan”...
It’s a COMMUNITY to lift you and love on you when you don’t feel strong, or capable or worthy.
When I become your coach, you will see...I DO NOT GIVE UP ON MY PEOPLE. No matter how many times they give up on themselves, I’m there to lift and encourage and PUSH past the discomfort.
I’ve got you, sister. Ya ready? Let’s go!

Headed across the states for a 5 day #holistichealth coach intensive, so I can be the best damn life coach ever! 🤩
.
This is the work I’ve done for 2 years with #journeysofwisdom thanks to my friends @awakenwithjp and @explorewithjator who somehow seduced my ego into it!
.
Fast forward to now, I am weirder than ever and consider this work of getting out of our mind and into our hearts the cherry on top I needed to round out the transformative work we do in my #womenwarriors organization!
.
I now feel free to travel with my #sloth and #unicorn and pack like a #rainbow puked in my suitcase 🤣 #TSA won’t let me board without it, rainbows are mandatory when you carry unicorns in your carry on!
.
For all my health coach peeps out there, you should join us one day so you can take your clients deeper in their healing wounds and freedom from shame journey!
.
The weirder the better no?
Off to Florida I go!
What does your suitcase and carry on look like when you travel?
.
Stand out or fit in?
Professional or playful?
Black or color?
Sloths or unicorns?
.
(Wearing my @swanwick glasses from my friend @jamesswanwick! Never leave home without them and i always wear them on the plane or where there’s blue light!)

I’m a day behind because I worked 16 hours yesterday, but I just finished taking my before pics & measurements for the new 6 week program I’m starting! My emotions are all over the board as I’m excited to start/continue this new journey with @shaunt who motivated me in the very beginning to CHANGE my life & now is helping me to pick my journey back up. I’m sad because I let my healthy habits slip away from me and gain back weight that I’d lost and lost confidence that I’d gained. But mostly, I’m grateful that life is not only linear. Just because we’d moved forward in one part and then back, that doesn’t mean that we can’t have a fresh start ever single day if we need it! I’m grateful that I STARTED on this journey and learned exactly what I need to do to be successful. And mostly I’m grateful that I DID have a set back and the opportunity to prove to myself how strong I am to keep going!
Let’s do this! @carldaikeler

I'm still non-weight-bearing, but I was cleared to swim. This is the first time since October, and it felt super weird after not using my leg for so long. It was actually 600m, and I did all four strokes. You might say I took to it like a fish in water? 😂

I have some work to do on the guns 💪 but that’s a different story. ~Just experienced my first week using #thrive and I can believe how great I feel.

I haven’t started the shakes yet because it doesn’t jive with the #whole30 and I can’t wait to see how that changes things.
This has been one of my healthiest weeks in a very VERY long time!
~What is your plan? 🤔🤷🏻‍♂️
We are 2 weeks into the new year. 🎉🎊
If you have a plan, share it with me.
If you don’t, let’s make one for you.
I’d love to be the voice in your ear pushing you toward health.

YES. In my opinion, this is the path to loving selfishness, the light side of being selfish. A journey to find self to become selfless.
.
An empaths superpower and secret weapon combined. As we ascend to higher levels of consciousness in a world where we receive more information than ever, how you can you love deeper while also simultaneously giving less fucks? Lets start with ONE thing today. What can you say NO to today, so you can say YES to you?
.
My sister Sierra sent this to me. I love my people (is the story I make up about who they are and what they represent to me, a projection of my experience of myself). We’re Real AF. Because … just say no to people pleasing and perfectionism. It is literally killing us inside!
.
So....let’s hear it. What will you say NO to today? As a token of self love saying yes to YOU?

I am so grateful 🙏🤜to you all for letting me share my journey with you and I really appreciate all of your kind words and advice.
Day 7 of the #whole30 and I am clear AF!
I give credit to the process of eliminating all the bad 💩 from my diet.
And huge credit to #thriveexperience
Day 2 and I fell the difference already.

4 eggs(scrambled in the microwave) and 1 avocado.
Day 3 of the #whole30
Going through all the normal stuff I think 🤔
Experiencing some heart burn ❤️ 🔥 which is NOT something I battle with normally.
I guess I will chalk it up to my body detoxing from all crap.
Any whole30 warriors out there experience this??

Mustache is helping me do straight leg raises with 5lbs weight. 5 sets of 10, 3-4 times a day on all four sides.

7 weeks today.

Fun fact: no one actually knows how long it takes this kind of transplant to heal. Surgeons guess 6-8 weeks, but why risk a higher transplant morbidity rate? That's where my surgeon's 3 months golden rule comes from.

Seven weeks out on Wednesday. I feel strong overall, but I'm frustrated with my adductor. I've been cycling, e-stimming, and started lifting with 5lbs ankle weights 3-4 times a day doing 5 sets of 10 lifts each round.

Really I should be proud of this progress because it's a damn fast recovery. I can't wait until I can stand, walk, and do squats and yoga.

Sooooo grateful to be here to see a new year beginning.
...🙏🏻😌🙏🏻

Never take a second for granted.
Never procrastinate when it comes to making your own happiness.
Never let another person make you feel “less than”.
Never hurt the ones you love the most.
Never put off making your dreams your reality.
Never believe “them” when “they” say you can’t.
Never never never give up.

How do we find it? Happiness, love, peace. We don’t. We create it. My life is messy, everyone’s is at times. I accept that. I embrace it. I feel it in my heart, that I am strong enough to face anything. I am fortunate, I am blessed and I am grateful. ♥️ #DeadLiftCCAmbo #DoYouEvenDeadLift #SlayTheDay #DeadLiftCC #savageAF #WomanWarrior #WarriorAF #Beast #liftingchick #Deadift #inkednurse #inkaddict #tattednurse #fitnurse #transformation #weighttraining #fitfam #lovemyfitfam #liftheavy #bebadass #dedicated #discipline #motivated #ValkyrieAF #VikingAF #chicksthatlift #liftheavyshit #benchwench #strongAF

#oldnorse regions where the #vikings settled, farmed, and fought for their land they conquered, compared to my ancestry.com results. They were the original explorers and traveled the world half a millennia before Columbus was born. My Dad never let us forget we were Norwegian when we were kids and Hillestad is a Norwegian surname. In old Norse it would have been Hildrstadir (Hildr = battle and Stadir = farmstead) @teedwallard and I carry the surname of our ancestors that were named for creating battle settlements on foreign soil. We were #raiders and #invaders and #warrioraf. While we have settled our invading and raiding tendencies, the #warriortradition has been carried on and handed down through the centuries. I’m proud to be Hillestad and to have #descendedfromgreatness What does this all mean? Nothing really, it just helps me reaffirm my drive and need to conquer everything I do. What we think, we become! There is power in thought! I hope every one of you is proud of your heritage. Discover where you came from because it can help you define your present and future... #norseaf #warrioraf #trustinthemission #thisisourreligion

Christmas. Can we prioritize connection over consumerism? Count blessings instead of gifts? Compassion for self and others over comparison for who got what gifts and if they were better than ours. Competing for love in the form of the things we received and instead the love we received from others hearts 🤗
.
The joy of the holidays has always been about celebrating life, selflessness, rising up and coming together. Lest we not forget this today and always 👁
.
You are gift enough for the world. Your value is not measured by how much you spend on others but by the amount of time you spend and love you share with them 🐣
.
I can’t tell you how often as a life coach / emotional healing & empowerment coach I use the love languages as tool to help us understand ourselves and others better to reduce conflict and increase connection 💕
.
Can you get out of your gift box this season, unwrap your heart and gift it to the world? Tell others how much you love them, how they inspire you...and what you remember most about them as a fond memory? 👭
.
Holidays can be emotionally heavy for some! I hear you. I feel you. I’m with you. Notice if you feel like holidays were unfair to you. So and so got more than you. Where did it come from? And can you let that story go? Burn it in the fire under the stockings? Forever gone, embers into the ether 🔥
.
We can let go and open up anytime, all we have to do is change the story, chose to see it different and cherish what we already have! You already have everything you need! 🥰
.
Don’t fall for the hype that Christmas is about what you get ... because truly it’s about what you GIVE! 🎄
.
Oh .. tell me too I’m curious ... what is YOUR love language? Mine is words, acts of service, touch, quality time and gifts in that order! 🎁

HOLLY DAY reminders (and some holiday highlights)
.
#1 - I made a ridiculous video of the Top 10 Nutrition Tips NOT To follow This Holiday Season you can see on my Youtube Channel (link in bio, under Videos). Just do the opposite
.
#2 - Give yourself permission to feel your feels and not feel obligated to shine happy when it’s inauthentic.  Remember, Happy is just ONE spectrum of emotion, amidst the colors of the rainbow.  It’s ok to feel others as well. A lot comes up during this time of the year, doors open, some fruitful and some painful
.
Give YOURself the gift of being the observer rather than the participant when feelings rise.  Be present to the possibility that they could be leading you toward another open door to help you solve the riddles of your struggle, pain or health challenges
.
When your family triggers you or trauma rises, it’s ok to give yourself a break from the busy and sit with it.  Sit with your inner child.  Embrace him/her with open wings. Explore the stories he/she shares, as you unravel the ribbons, unwrap the holiday paper, and open the box...having courage to look within it, and connect with what’s inside, without attachment.  And maybe letting it go.  Consider this a possible New Year’s Resolution (which I don’t do - #noshame) or even better, something you can let go of NOW
.
Lately I have been REALLY hard on myself, going through what feels like a big transition in my health... and rather than be fake and put on the ‘yeah, I’m great, never been better’ face, I’m owning it and deciding with whom to share it. What good does it to suppress it/numb it/ignore it, other than make it worse?
.
Your invitation, call it a challenge is to detach the stigma from your feels, invite your wounds to rise, and heal your feels. FREEDOM. This is your greatest gift to self, which then becomes your greatest gift to others. No amount of artificial PRESENTS can trump your authentic PRESENCE
.
#3 - Wherever you are this week, BE where you are. And be who YOU are, unapologetically. Unless you’re a blatant jerk to others, then apologize for your past and release that shame. 🤣
.
May God Make it REINdeer blessings and lessons over the canvas of your life

2018 has been one hell of a year! From releasing the Warrior to traveling the country to meeting new friends, I am truly blessed! I’m hopeful that in 2019 the truths of vaping will become more public and allow this community to thrive and continue to save lives! Happy Holidays to all my friends!

Every day for the past week I've cycled (with just the left), done @powerdot e-stim, and been working hard at straight leg presses and raises to do this, the impossible: extensions from 45 to 0°. Discipline is doing the things we know will help us reach our goals even if we don't feel like doing them at the time. Hold yourself responsible to a higher standard because you deserve your best effort.

Just over 5 weeks out of my THIRD osteochondral allograft, which replaced my ENTIRE medial femoral condyle. 4x3x3cm!
