As I’m struggling through day 2 of DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) after my first workout back after being lazy and taking 6 months off, I must remember I can whinge and whine as much as I want but I must be grateful for my body’s ability to smash a workout when this was all I could manage 19 months ago. And don’t even start me on the other pain I’d be in without the surgery. Choosing to remain positive and grateful for my body 🙏🏼😇 #begrateful #positive

Today was a bittersweet day on the mountain.  Tomorrow marks the day that my wife, Jeanine, will undergo spinal surgery.  After seven long years of pain and suffering, she will finally start on the road to recovery. Today was the last day of skiing with her this season...I sure will miss my pow pal, but I know she will be back stronger than ever next season!! I love you!

I'm really proud of this one. We hiked & climbed all over Valley of Fire, and I kept up with the rest of the family. Not too shabby considering that less than two years ago, I could barely hike down the stairs in my own house. 🔩 To all my friends who are prepping or recovering from surgery - there IS life after spinal fusion, and it can be a great one. ❤️

Got 1x165lbs on video.. a little wobbly. After this one I worked on pressing more through my hips and I got up to 175 and it was a lot more solid. Unfortunately I didn't film that one but this is still 40lbs more than last time so pretty good 💪🏼

I asked the USPS doctors at Concentra Urgent Advanced Medical Care for an MRI the first week I was injured- it has taken 81 days to have it done. They have insisted I have a back strain that more work would help. 😔🙄😬🤢😱🤮

LONG POST ALERT!!! Going to drop a little #TRUTH

I have not stopped busting my ass in my fitness. 
I have not stopped doing my best to help others find their path to a healthy lifestyle. 
I have not fallen "off the wagon". Did I gain back some weight? YUP!
Is it because I constantly shoved too much of the wrong food in my mouth? NOPE!
If my life looks like a cake walk to you from the outside,  because I own my own business and get to do something that I love every day, please remember that stress, injury, illness, and yes, even depression can have a huge impact on your physical body.

I don't always talk about it when "that stuff" happens in my life because I feel like as a fitness professional and Coach, I should ONLY put my best foot forward.  But lately I haven't really known what that was 
But today I realized just how wrong I have been! 
I do still work hard and do my best every day!  THAT in itself is pretty freaking AMAZING!  I am in a profession where many expect me to look a certain way, and I don't quite match that picture right now.
SO WHAT???
I AM HUMAN!  AND LIFE HAPPENS! 
But that doesn't mean that I gave up!
That doesn't mean that I am any less knowledgeable than I was 2 sizes and 40# ago!  In fact, I am MORE knowledgeable, because I have done a lot of research over the last 18 months BECAUSE of what I have been through!
And i do it not only for Me, but for my current and future clients.  Some fitness professionals don't "get it". But I have been there and back again several times.  And although I am not perfect, like the picture implies, I DO NOT and WILL NOT QUIT!

Beaucoup de questions reviennent souvent alors j'ai décidé de vous faire un post résumé ! • J'ai été opérée le 6 juin 2017 à l'hôpital Civil de Strasbourg par la Professeur CHARLES • Ma scoliose était d'environ 40°
• J'ai été opérée car ma scoliose évoluait beaucoup, mais surtout rapidement. De plus j'avais énormément de douleurs et de soucis dans les tâches de la vie quotidienne (entre autre)
• Je suis restée 1 semaine à l'hôpital, du lundi 5 au soir au mardi 13 après midi
• Je suis restée 6 semaines en repos à la maison, j'étais très souvent allongée car les positions debout statique et assise m'étaient très compliquées. En revanche je marchais tous les soirs environ 20-25 min selon mon état
• J'ai commencé la rééducation en centre de rééducation en externe le 19 juillet, à 6 semaines post-op. J'ai fait de la kiné et de l'ergothérapie jusqu'en octobre, j'ai commencé la balnéothérapie en septembre jusqu'en novembre. En octobre j'ai commencé le reconditionnement à l'effort, qui consiste entre autre, à retrouver une condition physique avant le retour au travail et à se remuscler. J'ai arrêté le 17 novembre, j'ai donc été en rééducation 4 mois
• J'ai repris le travail en mi temps thérapeutique le 27 novembre, après 6 mois d'arrêt
• Je reprendrai le travail à temps plein le 26 février
• Je continue à faire du sport en salle pour garder une condition physique • Ma cicatrice est plutôt belle mais j'ai beaucoup d'adhérences au niveau du bas, je vais donc chez le kiné qui me la travaille. En effet, les adhérences peuvent expliquer les tensions musculaires que je ressens encore

Je pense avoir répondu aux questions récurrentes mais si besoin n'hésitez pas à me poser des questions 💭❓ #scoliose #doublescoliose #scoliosis #douleurs #corset #scoliosisawareness #scoliosisstrong #scoliosisfighter #warrior #spinalfusion #spinalsurgery #surgery #spinalfusionsurgery #spine #fusion #backpain #colonne #colonnevertebrale #operationscoliose #scolioseoperation #reeducation #kine #kinesitherapie #balneotherapie #ergotherapie #deformed #twisted #nancy #strasbourg #hopitalcivil

Happy 8th month to my standing stud! And happy 2nd month post op to myself! We are both doing well at life. Lincoln is getting increasingly mobile which lends itself to many bumps and bruises and I have officially returned to work which lends itself to lots of soreness. Go us! #lincolnwingfield #spinalfusion #scheuermannskyphosis #kyphosis

The • Good • Samaritan:
"A Samaritan traveling the road came on him. When he saw the man’s condition, his heart went out to him. He gave him first aid, disinfecting and bandaging his wounds. Then he lifted him onto his donkey, led him to an inn, and made him comfortable." Luke 10:33-34 (MSG)
.
.
A quiet reminder outside the hospital this morning of my "why" as a physician. Lots of noise sometimes practicing medicine in America. The simplicity cuts through when remembering I did it all because I wanted to help. .
.
Comment below what your "why" is. What drives you everyday to do what you do??

So... I saw the foot doctor last week. The word is I have ‘significant changes’ in the metatarsal joint.  I can have surgery to remove a small bone.. but this will lead to bunions, or I can have the joint fused which will mean it won’t move at all & footwear options will be restricted & IMO, seriously & adversely aesthetically impacted. 
I am meant to stop:
1. Running (or trying to) 
2. Wearing high heels
and lastly
3. Climbing stairs. (Apparently it will wear my knees out)

It wasn’t the news I was hoping for... I kinda thought a joint replacement would be a splendid idea but as this isn’t on the table....FTW I will continue to do as I please & not let another chronic injury dictate my life choices until I absolutely can’t stand it anymore. 
Walked 5.2km & did 10 flights of stairs #ftw #injury #spinalfusion #training #neverdone #walkswithpoodles #ilovemydog #noparticulargoal

Happy Martin Luther King Day!
————-
This quote meant a lot to me when I didn’t even know what it meant. But now, I can say I have a personal relationship it. ————-
Now that I can walk, although my diagnosis has never changed- I am still a paraplegic- people assume my body must have returned to normal. A common misconception about paraplegics is that they will always be in a wheelchair. I am here to tell you, this is FALSE. —————-
-

With new technologies& therapies, &depending on one’s injury, the ability to walk is must more attainable now for many paraplegics.
————-
Yes I can walk, &yes I still have partial paralysis in my lower body. Paraplegic = “paralysis that affects PART or ALL of the trunk, legs &pelvic organs.” ————- I live with partial paralysis every day. It exists in my lower calves especially, parts of my glutes &ALL of my pelvic organs.
—————
I do know what it feels like to NOT be able to walk. It is something that is so easy to take for granted, until one day you can no longer do it. I spent weeks/months in a wheelchair, months after that with a walker &years after that with a single-legged cane. —————
And, despite my now ability to walk (not completely normally) I do not have the ability to run. ————
-

I love this quote because it promotes gratitude, strength& perseverance,& reminds the reader that no matter what, he/she has to keep moving forward. ————-
-
When I was learning to walk, I kept thinking “if I can just walk with the cane.” Then it became, “if I can just walk with only orthotics”, & now it’s, “if I can just gain strength in my ankles.” But no matter what struggles, what losses, what happens that is really not within my control, I have learned that it is completely within my ABILITY to TRY. I may never regain pelvic floor function, (which diminishes my quality of life), but I will die trying, &I can be okay with that. I cannot be okay w/ NOT trying, & not moving forward. Thank-you MLK. Your words speak life to me.

Maybe you just see a simple pic of my hand/nails, but to me they're symbolic of my scratching and clawing my way back to normal life after the craziness of last year. 
I've made big strides in recovering from neck/spine surgery, and an almost 65% recovery of my range of motion. (Which is probably as good as it's going to get.)
I'm determined to get myself back. Something in me has changed since that surgery. It's a version of me that I'm starting to love, a version of me that's going to be comfortable in my skin, no matter how that skin has changed and transformed.

Wyatt had spine surgery almost a year ago to correct his scoliosis.  Every few months we take him in to "grow" the rods that have been fused to his spine.  They use the device in the pic to move magnets (in the rods) to lengthen them.  No pain and the appointment takes five minutes. Isn't this technology cool?  #specialneeds #specialneedsparents #specialneedsmom #specialneedskids #disability #cerebralpalsy #specialneedschild #epilepsy #specialneedsjourney #disability #happylifespecialneedschild #posttraumaticgrowth #scoliosis #spinalfusion

A woman that is #unstoppable on bettering herself, and in return those around her. Yet, pass me all the #patience, between appointments then an 1.5 hr #playdate at an indoor trampoline park. #mommaneedscoffee #andanap.

I can officially announce that we’re going to be parents ❤️ after being told after my spinal fusion and Harrington rod surgery for my severe scoliosis that I should not plan on being able to carry to term and should consider surrogacy instead for the sake of my health, I found a neurosurgeon and specialist at the University of Washington who begged to differ after extensive testing 😍 I’m very excited and nervous... but feel incredibly blessed! Get ready for #vegetarian #pregnancy posts, #physicaltherapy progress, and the possible emotional rant 😂 so far I’m just sick 24/7 and trying to find the perfect equation of food types that I can keep in my stomach. #vegetarianpregnancy #mommytobe #2018 #blessings #jewish #women #scoliosis #harringtonrods #spinalfusion #spinalsurgery

I came for asana; i stayed for meditation. -A regular yoga practice is the only thing that allows me to feel okay with this hardware inside my physical body.  16 years strong.
