1st vid on my walk - history of myself and my rhabdo experience. I would love to share my knowledge and experience on a greater scale. Some help from amazing TV personalities would be amazing because Rhabdo is real and more people are experiencing it and suffering from it and sadly are left not knowing what to do. #rhabdomyolysis #rhabdosucks #sports #training #muscle #sportsinjury #athletes #extremesports #rhabdorecovery #oprah
Thought to share with you few little tips to help your rhabdo recovery. Lots of trial and errors but these have helped me so much. Xx Mel #rhabdo #rhabdomyolysis #rhabdosucks #rhabdorecovery #muscle #rhandoawareness
I’m so ready for Halloween this year for various reasons: 1. Because last year all of October was one big suck fest for me and I can’t tell you how many times I watched The Addams Family movies on Freeform from my hospital bed while getting dialysis. So I need a much better more festive October this year. 2. All the awesome Halloween Lularoe I bought last year before the rhabdo came that I never really got to wear so most of it is like new for this year! 3. The Halloween costume I had planned but never bought for @vaughtmommy Halloween party last year. 4. The photo of @_beth.osborne_ and I above was the weekend before I got sick and enjoying all the Halloween stuff at Dollywood. We need to go again this year! So please pardon my excitement for fall and October! #rhabdosucks #readyforhalloween
Why patience is a virtue and listening to yourself is important!⚠️ . . This was me a few weeks ago. I found myself in the ER getting treated for rhabdomyolysis. Basically I pushed myself way too hard during a workout, ripped my ab muscles to shreds, and almost caused myself serious kidney damage. . . Why? Because I had gained almost 20 lbs, was not fitting into my clothes, energy levels were down, but most importantly I just was not feeling like the man, the husband, and dad I know I'm supposed to be. . I guess in a way I didn't want to listen. I was punishing myself for allowing my health and mental state to start rapidly declining. . . It's very easy to lose patience with yourself and attempt to change a situation overnight that took you weeks, months, or even years to get in to. . . Stop the madness! Stop the pills, the get fit quick schemes, and the new "special" workout. Start by changing your mindset, changing your daily habits, and building consistency in your life. Focus on small steps day by day that in the long run will not just add up to a change in your results but a positive change in your life. . . And find a coach and community that will walk with, hold you accountable, encourage you, and not let you put yourself in a position that can be detrimental to your health. 😉 . . . #patienceisavirtue #workouttips #healthylivingtips #rhabdomyolysis #rhabdosucks #listentoyourbody #dads #fitdad #fit4him #dadfit #changeyourmindset #changeyourlife #focus #beconsistent
After a month of recovering from rhabdomyolysis, I’m back at the gym! No worries, I’m taking it easy for a little while but it feels amazing to be back❤️ • • • • #recovery #rhabdomyolysis #rhabdo #rhabdosucks #workout #strength #adidas #motivation #persevere
#TBT To when I first started Crossfit and it was held in the park. #TFW That feel when it looks like you're constipated. But you're just trying not to die while doing Crossfit #rhabdosucks 😂🤣😄
I'd like to wish this BEAUTIFUL young lady a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

Mesmerized by these giant cacti! Standing tall so peacefully in the middle of the desert heat. I had to stop on the side of the road to take a pic. . .

6 recovery mi tonight. I’m so thankful to be recovering from the rhabdo saga and getting back to myself. This is my biggest mileage week since getting hospitalized. 41.3 mi on tap this week! Praise God 🙌🏻 Only ran a few small hills since yesterday’s run was really hilly. It was super humid out but only 80 degrees. Been running solo a lot, aside from the Saturday group runs. It’s good for the soul..to run..to sort my thoughts...to have quiet time...and to pray to the one who is in control of it all. #trailrunner #marathoner #ultrarunner #recoveryrun #hillseeker #runforgod #rhabdosucks #rhabdomyolysisrecovery #cancersurvivor
When your bestie brings you a hospital prize! Love you @bblilajewelry #rhabdosucks #myarmsarealmostnormal #lovemyfriendsSOmuch #wethickasthieves
Six Weeks Post-Rhabdo! I’m not back to my regular weights, but I’m getting there... slowly but surely! I’ve incorporated my stretching and mobility into my daily routine, which is helping! This particular stretch with a resistance band is one of my faves. So many thanks to @brickwallcrossfit for working with me while I get back into it! #rhabdosucks #brickbybrick #crossfit
I'm still not at my goal since recovering from rhabdo but I'll be damned if I give up!! . . I know I'm not a super model and definitely not a body builder. I'm just trying to be a better version of myself!! . . #gunshow #goodvibes #roses #lovemytat #motivation #nomakeup . . #roses #redroses #tattoo #tattoomom #beautifulroses #inkedgirl #thirteenpointone #twentysixpointtwo #rhabdosucks #ilovecoffee #militaryfamily #beautyfromashes #winelover #wonderwoman #unicorns   #armywifey #sahm #motherrunner #fitmom #weightliftingmommy #instafit #fitness #boymom #determined
Took this picture the day I went to the doctor's and got my Rhabdo diagnosis. You can see just how swollen both arms are. -- Today was my first day back at the gym since all of this went down a little over 4 weeks ago. I haven't done any sort of activity outside of my normal, daily routine. I've been able to carry groceries, pick Kenley up etc., but outside of that, nothing. -- Today was definitely frustrating. All I did was walk .35m, static stretching, dynamic stretching, and some very, very light (did I mention very?) plyometrics work. Just enough to get my blood flowing and my whole body moving. -- I paid close attention to what my body was telling me. I took many breaks, am drinking a ton of water, and made sure to keep things modified. I only actively did the work for about 30mins. However, I can already feel the fatigue setting in my arms and legs. I'm definitely weak and tired, but nothing compared to how I felt a few weeks ago. -- So, today was day 1 in making my way back to where I was. I have a long road ahead of me. I need to take it slow, stay hydrated, and rest. But, I've got this. I've read a lot about people "never being the same" after Rhabdo. Well not me. I'm going to come back stronger and in better shape. -- Day 1 ☑️ #rhabdosucks #beautyinstrength
Finally going home after 3 unexpected days in the hospital. If you workout and have not heard of rhabdomyolysis, go look it up! I had NO idea I was harming my body by increasing my workouts so fast. I learned the hard way. I got lucky and had no kidney or muscle damage. I am so thankful for all of you who have reached out to me, I love you all and appreciate you. ❤️ #rhabdomyolysis #rhabdo #rhabdosucks #hospital #hydration #wateriskey #kidney #muscle #workout #thankful #blessed #educate
CPK at 11,000 and climbing. Checking in to the hospital overnight. #rhabdosucks
Definitely blessed to be a spouse, sister, sister in law and aunt to the bravest Soldiers and Airmen. My time was cut short in the AF but if I could go back in time I would do it all over again!!! . . . #4thofjuly . . . #5k #10k #thirteenpointone #twentysixpointtwo #rhabdosucks #runningislife #ilovecoffee #boymom #tattoomom #militaryfamily #beautyfromashes #winelover #wonderwoman #unicorns   #armywifey #sahm #motherrunner #instarunner #fitmom #weightliftingmommy #instafit #fitness #momlife #crossfit
After a clean bill of health from the doc and normal CPK levels, I inched a little closer to my regular weights in #kettlebell class. I also did a few rounds of back squats, which was lovely! I’m glad I’m coming back from #rhabdo without too much trouble! 💪🏻 #gettingbackintoit #rhabdosucks #crossfit #backsquatsfordays
First real physical activity since my battle with Rhabdo. I lasted three games before my body said heck NO while my boy kept on... bad a** lol. Whoever doesn't think paintball isn't a workout needs to try it some day. Especially in this Miami Heat. Shout out to Family Paint Ball Center. Safe, clean fun for all. Yes, always rep'n Spartan. #familypaintballcenter #spartandad #blessed #rhabdosucks #iwillbeback
