I can't tell you how many times I've wandered around my house looking for Bella, only to find she was next to me to begin with... #blackdogissuescantseeher #thestruggleisreal #crazybella #blendingin

DONE. After a weekend of cleaning up vomit and poop and no sleep I’m so done and only want to sleep for 24 hours straight! . . .

The #liftingjourney is like constantly moving a pile of dirt 🚜 Some days, you move it with a tractor 🥄 Some days, you move it with a spoon It’s extremely humbling (and frustrating) to be doing singles at 265, but I have to remind myself, I’m still down 15 pounds right now, and it’s only a week post competition I have 2️⃣0️⃣1️⃣9️⃣ goals on the horizon already #hungry #trusttheprocess #girlswholift #fitgirls #chickswholift #fitchicks #deadlift #legday #powerlifting #natty #100natty #thestruggleisreal

Early morning to yoga class (well 10:15 but don’t judge) and I don’t notice this until I’m on way out. #doesnotmatch #thestruggleisreal
These little hats are SO close to finishing...but I’ve ripped out the crown shaping about a dozen times on the blue cuz it refuses to do what I think it should. All I wanted was to gift my niece a little arrow-motif cap, with ear flaps and a flat top and two poms ... is that too much to ask?! 🙈
4 miles with the hubby today, still struggling but will persevere till it finally comes back (hopefully sooner rather than later!) #runner #running #couplewhorunstogether #4miles #thestruggleisreal
Haven't done this in awhile, yet it wasn't as hard as I remembered. Still a serious struggle, but didn't feel as impossible as a few months ago 🤗 . . . . . . . #backflexibility #backbend #shoulders #poledancersofig #stretch #thestruggleisreal #yoga #practice #progress #pigeon #kingpigeonpose #pigeonpose #nypoledancing #yogastrap #wip #workinprogress #thestruggleisreal #nyc #newyork #newyorkcity #bronx #poledancer #flexibility #flexibilitygoals #notyoga #yogisofig
To anyone who suffers through chronic digestive unrest, I feel your pain 😩 This ⬆️ is how I spent the majority of the day yesterday: bloated, uncomfortable and utterly miserable. As some of you may know, I was formally diagnosed with IBS 3 years ago. I first began to exhibit symptoms in 2013 as a senior year at Cornell, but it wasn’t until I moved to Boston to start my first job in 2015 that things really got bad. What began as the occasional bout of having an ‘upset stomach’ gradually morphed into a full-blown onslaught of digestive woes that plagued me day and night. I experienced constipation that lasted for days, bloating so bad that it was hard to be in a seated position, and a constant churning and bubbling in my lower right abdomen that made it impossible to concentrate on anything other than how uncomfortable I was. Eventually the pain and discomfort got so bad that it began to affect my training, my job, my sleep, my relationships, and my ability to simply live my life. At one point I felt so uncomfortable and so overwhelmed that John took me to the emergency room to see if they could help me get some relief. They did not help, unfortunately, but instead sent me to see a gastroenterologist. The GI Dr. put me through a barrage of tests including a Celiac blood test, a lactulose breath test, a balloon expulsion test, a barium enema, a sigmoidoscopy, and a colonoscopy. At the conclusion of all of those incredibly invasive and ridiculously expensive tests, I was told I had Irritable Bowel Syndrome (aka IBS): a disorder with no known cause and no cure. That diagnosis was disappointing, frustrating, and incredibly demoralizing. Since then I have been trying my best to manage my symptoms, but it is truly a constant struggle. Flare-ups like yesterday’s are completely debilitating, both physically and mentally, and leave me feeling exhausted and hopeless. Talking about these digestive issues is not easy - it’s awkward and embarrassing and makes me super uncomfortable - but knowing how sad and isolated I felt yesterday, I wanted to let anyone else out there who might also be struggling know they are not alone ❤️
Wrapping is done! Thank God because I could hardly get up off the floor after all that! 😂 I love coordinating the paper and ribbon with the tree and decorations. I get excited to wrap the presents all pretty but literally by the time I reach the last few I just wish I had some peel and stick bows! 😩 #thestruggleisreal #firstworldproblems _____________________ #christmaspresents #wrappingpresents #presentsunderthetree #christmastree #christmas

Two guesses on who is personally insulted that she had to walk in the rain.

“When the alcoholic gets into trouble because of his drinking, the family worries. They are so afraid of what will happen that they do anything to get the alcoholic off the hook. They do his work, pay his bills, pick up his messes, patch up his mistakes, and tell lies for him. Without realizing it, they make it possible for him to continue drinking. They don’t know that removing all the painful results of the drinking only reaffirms the alcoholic’s conviction that he can drink as much as he wants and nothing bad will happen.” ˙ “Alateen – Hope for Children of Alcoholics” (p. 6-7) ˙ Alateen is for teens who have been affected by the family disease of alcoholism. Most Alateen groups are for teens from age 13-18. When a member reaches 18, they transition into Al-Anon.

Answer: 2 Rationale: If the client develops an air embolism, the immediate action is to place the client in Trendelenburg’s position on the left side. This position raises the client’s feet higher than the head and traps any air in the right atrium. If necessary, the air can then be directly removed by intracardiac aspiration. Options 1 and 4 are incorrect positions because both positions elevate the head, put the air in a dependent position, and increase the risk of a cerebral embolism; lying flat in the lateral position does not help trap the air in the right atrium. Priority Nursing Tip: If an air embolism is suspected, the intravenous tubing is clamped off immediately. Test-Taking Strategy: Focus on the subject, air embolism. Note the strategic word, immediately. Visualize each position in the options and recall cardiac anatomy. Recalling that the goal of action is to trap air in the right atrium will direct you to the correct option. (Silvestri 84) Silvestri, Linda, Angela Silvestri.

Repost from @angreads ! This is such a cute, intellectual picture; I love it! The Bookworm book sleeve is one of my most popular. I’m glad you guys think these little bespectacled worms are adorable, too! . . In my earlier story I said we were going to take it easy today. I don’t know what happened but I have been doing a HUGE toy destash for 3 hours with my kids! . . My husband teamed up with our son, I teamed up with my daughter and we just went through every single toy in their rooms. It either stayed or is getting donated. It took forever!!! And this is only Stage 1! . . Stage 2 is destashing the toys from the playroom then moving them up into their rooms. Because right now, they’re using my dining room and library as one giant playroom. Well, I’m over that and I want a dining room...like a real adult. I have been DYING for my library. DYING. . . So 5 years is enough. I never had a playroom growing up- I always played in my room and I’m not scarred in any way. But if you ask them (who are 8 and 7 btw) the world is ending and it makes no sense. To quote my son, “What are you gonna do with a dining room anyway?!?!” 🙄 . . Very soon renovations will begin on those two rooms and I’m extremely excited!! I will keep you guys in the loop along the way bc there’s no way I can keep my happiness inside. We’re talking new floors, painting, new furniture...everything! . . #bookworm #bookdragon #booksleeve #booksleeves #bookmarks #bookmark #bookartbookmarks #sewhappystitchhappy #bookstagram #booklover #reading #readersofinstagram #momlife #destash #toys #outwiththeold #playroom #myturn #thestruggleisreal #diningroom #library #mytime #renovation #homerenovation

Capturing a rare moment. My hair is (sorta) fixed and I have (some) makeup on. #thestruggleisreal # I often wonder if I am too lazy to fix my hair and makeup or do I legit just not care what society says I should do to “be presentable and professional?” And since I don’t consider myself a lazy person, I am inclined to think that I really just don’t care. 😏 # But on to the real reason for this post. # Did you know the average woman absorbs 4lb 6oz of chemicals from toiletries and make-up every year? # There is a growing body of evidence linking these chemicals to hormone disruption and increased risk of cancer. # The United States has not passed a major federal law to regulate the safety of ingredients used in personal care products since 1938. There are more than 80,000 chemicals on the market today, many with no safety data whatsoever. This is particularly true of those used in the skin care and beauty industry. # I am a safer skincare advocate. If you want more information on safer skincare or makeup products, lemme know. # #skincaresunday #selfcareeverydamnday #beautycounter #nourishingpractices
The struggle is soooo real.
Sleep deprived and battling fatigue as I conquered Vienna city centre amidst strong gusty winds 💨 this evening. I think after this smile, the face is in my salad plate 🤣🤣 #thestruggleisreal
