I’m telling my self this. I’m telling you this too. We are doing a beautiful job figuring out some heavy shit. 
I say all of the time that we all have a f💙ck face, mine is just literally my face. Everyone has “something”. Right? 
Lately, I’ve had things piled up on top of my f💙cked face and head. Life. Yesterday, I felt just how hard it is on my body being sick and mom-ing on top of it. My body was not handling it. I could not say a word. I haven’t been saying a lot of words about so many things. Instead, I choose funny. Funny is good. I’ve always had my sense of humor. It’s always, all ways, been my saving grace. 
I’ve been trying to figure out heavy shit. How to navigate new normals. How to settle my losses and just move forward. Acceptance always feels like settling. Sometimes I feel talked into settling with pain no one could possibly understand. I feel like w my recovery, it would be like me accepting I had anorexia & just living with it. What sense does that make? There’s an immediate response of, “That makes no effing sense at all!” Am I right?! So I’m doing a beautiful job handling my heavy shit. And shit. Not so beautiful right now. I actually feel more paranoid and drawing worst case scenarios. Does that shit ever end? I’m a pretty badass human. And yet. 
In case no one tells you or no one knows or you don’t feel it, you are doing a beautiful job figuring out some heavy shit. And shit. 
I love you. I love me. I love us.

February 12, 2019. He’s gone, and we’ll never be the same. There is grief where love once lived. There is a new normal just barely beginning to take shape. There is a future full of unknowns. But we’ll be okay. I know we’ll be okay. He isn’t hurting anymore and I am thankful for that. His daughters are brilliant and resilient and I am thankful for that. We are surrounded by family and friends and the most incredible support system I could dream of, and I’m thankful for that. And that’s all I know right now. 🔷

Asking for help is ok! I’m trying to change my mindset and not think of my body as something that needs fixing, maybe my normal is just different, and even though it’s not always fun, it’s also not wrong. It took me a lot of painful trips outings and missed events to finally ask my doctor for this pass, I’m still my same BA self, just with a little extra support. #chronicillnessawareness #onedayatatime #fibromyalgia #undifferentiatedconnectivetissuedisease #chronicpain #newnormal #askforhelp #mondaymotivation #fibrowarrior #mindsetiseverything

1 year anniversary of my dedication to fitness and my HEALTH. 💪🏼

The the girl on the left was depressed and sick all the time. I was drinking too much, eating fast food, treating my body terribly and I hated myself for it. I remember taking these before photos. I put makeup on, straightened my hair, and used my ring light to try to blur imperfections because I was SO insecure.
.
I have spent an entire year focusing on my health first; feeding my body properly and getting strong. What’s most important here is how I feel!!! I have eliminated everything from my life that is harmful. I have never felt so clear headed, confident, motivated, and happy. ☀️
.
I’ve been working with my trainer @buffduff24 for 4 months now and I’ve seen a major improvement. She trains remotely, I’m in CA she’s in NY. What I love about her is her knowledge and how she focuses on your health and how you feel. Thank you Jacquelyn, you’re truly the best.
.
I can’t wait to see what this next year will bring 🎉

Well y’all!  It’s time to step into your power.⁣
⁣
Yesterday I spent time with one of my soul sisters who so graciously volunteered to be my audience while I practiced my TEDx talk.  As I shared my story and said things like “I was hit by an SUV” and “I had a 1% chance of saving my leg” and “I was surrounded by daily reminders that I would never walk again,” she stopped me.  She reminded me of the darkness I had overcome and the light that I had found—mostly because I was saying it like it was no big deal. ⁣
⁣
“You kept your leg and you’re out of your wheelchair!  That’s a f*cking big deal!” she reminded me.⁣
⁣
New perspectives provide new solutions AND leave you feeling grateful.🙏🏻⁣
⁣
Sometimes in darkness, it’s hard to imagine that things will ever get better or that we will ever find our magic again, leaving us feeling hopeless.  It’s so important to celebrate our small victories along the way, whether that’s taking a first step towards our goals, or LITERALLY just taking a step.⁣
⁣
Just keep putting one foot in front of the other, one day at a time.  HOPE is available.⁣
Claim your power!!!⁣
Shine your brightest even in darkness—just like the moon.⁣
⁣
I love you like that!⁣

My new normal 🤪 When Kaison was 6-months-old, and we started trying for our second kid, everyone told us how tough having two kids under the age of three would be. Now, I know they weren’t lying, but I wouldn’t change a thing. These boys are so amazing, and I’m so thankful for both of them ❤️

That broken thing you keep trying to put together can’t compare with that beautiful thing waiting to be built.⁣
⁣
I used to try and get my life back to the way it was before my motorcycle accident, 34 surgeries, and before being diagnosed with CRPS.  I would try every way to train the way I used to, work the way I used to, DO the things I used to. ⁣
⁣
But true resilience doesn’t always mean bouncing back, but instead bouncing forward and reinventing yourself. ⁣
⁣
We all have resilience within us and it’s just waiting to be claimed! ⁣
⁣
Sometimes we just have to let go of what was and trust what will be.  You CAN have the life you have always imagined!⁣
⁣
Happy February!  I hope you experience consecutive wins, healing energy, and unexpected blessings.  May you receive everything your heart desires!⁣

“How is it with #threekids ??” 💜

This is the number one question I get asked on the daily now that baby Millie has #joinedourclan and my answer is pretty #simple but #honest 💜

We are still adjusting and figuring out our #newnormal . Having a baby ALWAYS requires adjustments and sacrifices to be made, but once you kind of get the swing of things it gets a lot more doable. Lowering my expectations of everyone and everything makes life A LOT more enjoyable. I will still always say that the first baby was the hardest... now I kind of know what I’m doing. 💜

#motherhood doesn’t have to be miserable. In fact, it truly can be incredible. Letting go of perfection and allowing constant “resets” is key to happiness in motherhood if you ask me. And as always, #selfcare for mama will be TOP at the list of priorities.

“How is it with #threekids ??” 💜 This is the ...

It was my absolute pleasure to do this blog post. Hilary was 51 years old when she had a stroke that drastically altered her appearance & mobility. 3 years later she's written a book that details exactly what happened, why it happened and how she has redefined her "new normal" to find purpose and fulfillment even after something so difficult.

Have you ever had to define your own "new normal"? It happens after divorce, job loss, illness and so on. We can wallow, remain stuck in the past and what should be or we can embrace the present and flourish!

After a death, pulling oneself up by the bootstraps, and entering the home or business of the deceased to find what is necessary to settle the estate, is one of the most emotional parts of dealing with a death in the family.  It's a major stumbling block for many families and estate executors, for multiple reasons.

However, once locating all the needed paperwork in the house is done, did you know that you can take that paperwork to an estate concierge and have them write the letters that do everything from notifying extended family and professional contacts of the death, all the way to notifying creditors and disconnecting utilities, and then mail the results directly to the attorney handling #probate so that you have some space to come to grips with your #newnormal ?

He entered this world unscathed, not yet jaded, only understanding gentle words and soft touch from his mother, father, and others who adore him.  The ability to which he loves is intrinsic; his greatest calm is in my arms. The only “evil” he knows is a cold wind on a bare bottom or a fleeting pang of hunger, none of which last very long. He’s learning to smile, and see the world around him. His eyes filled exponentially more with wonder than with fear. 
I wish he could see the world like this forever... •

One of my goals as a #Stepmomma is to SLOW DOWN.
♡
♡
♡
I used to be that #Stepmom who wanted everything to be perfect... because I wanted our family to be, I guess... 'normal'.. Or at least appear to be. I always planned out activities for us to do. I made sure that we went here and went there. I was exhausting my own self and I am sure that I was tiring out my #Stepson and #dearhusband. And what made it more frustrating... I felt unappreciated. I felt like I wasn't doing enough or being enough. Sometimes I still do. But you know what, I am learning to s-l-o-w down. Breathe. And just live. So what if we don't do this activity today or tomorrow. So what if we can't go here or there. Slow it down girl. #Stepparenting is not about being perfect. Let's embrace our new normal. It's okay. 💕

There’s not a lot that brings a smile to my face these days. No matter how hard I try, I just don’t “feel” a lot of the time. 3 months and it still feels like yesterday. There are moments though, that give me hope that this isn’t forever, that the “new normal” will someday just be normal. It will never be the same without you Sam, but we will press on, we will endure and we will never, ever forget.

My smile yesterday came from Nick. He reminded me of Sam, headphones on, rapping as loud as he could in his room. So Nick, even after a long day of hockey, hopped in the shower and started singing Rock and Roll All Nite. Then was humming Run to the Hills and then thismorning was singing Iron Man while playing FortNite... proud dad moment...🤘🏻He reminded me that everyday is a new day, to find something to be grateful and happy for each moment no matter how small, that it will get easier and most of all, we will be alright. .

The new normal. I think about that a lot. How life can change in, seemingly, the blink of an eye. And everyone from the cat to the washing machine has to adjust, to learn the ups and downs of the new path life is taking. Navigating change is never easy but sometimes it comes with the richest of rewards.

One day I hope I can enjoy life again. I hope that I will be someone who is adventurous, fun, peaceful, loves, is loved, gives and one who has ganas. I used to have these attributes but not  anymore. I hope one day I can reclaim my identity.  One day I hope I have these qualities and more. One day I hope I’m stronger, fiercer and with ganas like you wouldn’t believe. I hate how deeply broken I am because of him. I don’t even know his name and has so much power over me. One day I will reclaim that too and I will not be stronger because of him. I’ll be stronger in spite of him. I’ll be brave in spite of him. I’ll find peace in spite of him. I won’t just survive I’ll live in spite of him. 
One day I’ll be happy, I hope.

End of last year this was me. 
Test after test led me struggling with Day to day life
This is what my normal looked like. 
Until I saw something that made me stop, think and feel differently..
You are the master of your change, either they'll dance in the rain with you or create the storm, it's only yourself that can change it. 
I decided to find out more information about this #newnormal old mate of mine was talking about. 
And my box I had boxed myself in suddenly crashed open. 
I was no longer stuck, I have opportunities you can have too, I have a new found love and respect for myself, that you can too
And I want to help you get out of the "box" we put ourselves away in all too often! Is it your time to shine too? Let's hold hands and do it together!

Note to Self:
1. Stress need not be stressfull, problems need not be problematic, troubles need not be troublesome.
2. Trust the process, and don't rush the process; Dreams and Visions and Desires should never frustrate or torment.
3. Pace yourself in rhythm with those Great Expectations, you will find they advance one step at a time, one day at a time---*that* is your stride.
4. Trust me, you're doing great.

Day 245 with the new heart and I’m feeling introspective today. .

Granted, that’s not particularly unusual for me. You simply can’t live through a true life or death struggle like the one I survived in the past year without finding your perspective changed, your view focused both inward and outward in an all new way. .

My neurologist said something to me last week that brought tears to my eyes. We were discussing my cognitive “new normal” and he gently said “Andrea, this is *your* life now. You can do whatever *you* want with it.” .

Each Spring I pluck the brown, dead pom-pom remnants of last year’s blooms to allow this gorgeous hydrangea bush in my backyard to flourish. Soon it will fill out with lush greenery that will perfectly frame the periwinkle blooms I love so much on the long, lazy days of our beautiful #pnw summers.
.

Today as I completed this annual task, I found myself wondering what *I* need to shed from last year in order to reach my full potential. I thought I had already emerged my from cocoon a fully-formed butterfly 🦋 ... but it feels increasingly like my transformation just continues and it’s exciting and frightening and filled with both joy and sadness. .

The Boy and I were talking about this the other night and he commented that in some ways, having a heart transplant is like escaping an abusive relationship. On the one hand, I’m so happy that I survived and that I’m “safe.” But on the other, I really haven’t dealt yet with the abuse I lived through or with the emotional attachment I have to the heart I was born with, but which beats no more.

We walked across stage to be recognized for: ✅celebration of the birth of our new unit, ✅their promotions as Star Team Builders/Red Jackets (the top 5% in the company) AND ✅the 3 of us being in target for the FREE cruise from @marykayus 
Yes, you read that correctly, the FREE cruise!! ***side note, if you’re one of our customers and friends and do NOT already have a MK gal taking care of you, we would LOVE to share with you how you can support us! 🤗🤗🤗 Please and thank you 😉😉 In less than a year, they each ✅moved up in their business, ✅got a promotion, ✅received a pay raise and ✅walked across stage to receive recognition for their accomplishments!

Here’s the coolest part... ✅There is a spot on stage for anyone who is willing... ✅There is a promotion available for anyone who is willing... (Whenever you want it, not when someone ELSE thinks you deserve one...) ✅There is a check available for anyone who is willing... Want to know what it takes to be #willing? 🤔

We can tell you!

My heart is SOOOO full and my cup is overflowing with gratitude for the chance to watch the abundance that is flowing...hold tight y’all!! Let’s give these women some props y’all!

We all have times in our lives when we are truly tested.  Mine was 14 years ago when my brother passed.  Naturally I was an absolute mess and have only just started to accept it happened. .
So what's my point?
.
I signed up to Pure Energy Music new presenter search that year and I needed to submit my entry video just days after I received this news. Teaching an aerobics class and filming it was the last thing I wanted to do but I did it, submitted the video and got shortlisted.  Just a few months later I went on to win! .
Still, what's my point? .
My point is this... there will always be a reason to quit, there will always be a change in life (planned or otherwise) however it is up to you to decide how you deal with it. Did I want to jack it all in? Absolutely, but where would I be if I had just given in and given up. Changes from what we are used to or comfortable with should not always be seen as a negative - we simply create a new normal and find a way to carry on as best we can. .
We can find a thousand reasons to quit and a hundred barriers in our way however we only need one solid and positive reason for going for it... so what's yours?

Do you schedule happiness? How often do we hear how we should hustle more? “Gotta grind to get success,” they say. We totally understand that a good work ethic leads to success. Do you know what else does? Good health. Both physically and mentally. .
.
If you want to have success in life, you must make time for health and happiness. They go together. Time can always run out if you leave health and happiness to the end. What about scheduling these things as a priority? .
.
We really like the phrase “Life’s short. Dessert first.” Treat health and happiness as your life’s dessert and put it first.

Yesterday 6 teenagers were working from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. to help a former homeless single mom of three children move her belongings from storage to her recently leased apartment. 
The media says that we have toxic masculinity, meanwhile our boys have been moving vulnerable single moms and elderly people. Many times during difficult situations, last-minute notices and almost on a weekly basis. Our boys are taught to defend the weak, protect the fatherless, love others as themselves and respect their elders.

The propaganda machine says that the only way to success is to accept a large debt and college degree. Meanwhile our young leaders grow their networks, get apprenticeship opportunities with great leaps into financially lucrative careers. Some even launch their businesses because they invested college money and received business coaching from our colleagues.

Planned Parenthood which PROFITS from abortions says that they have easy access to abortions, but we always offer support, free care from (Options 360) and encourage adoptions. 
Our society says that they can be any gender, offers permanent hormone treatment and surgery. But, we remind them that they are unique and were beautifully made in the image of our creator just as they are.

The CORRUPT pharmaceutical industry says that they need medication therapy and couciling, but we say that they need to receive Jesus's love, forgiveness and healing. 
You can stand with us and defend our future or keep going with the flow. @flash_love #NewNormal

Week one of @rpstrength fat loss cut template starts tomorrow. I know it's going to be a challenge, but I'm ready and excited for it.
___

I really don't know the last time I bought this much whole foods. Nothing processed. New normal.
___

I did notice that my mind kept going to donuts and chips and burritos and everything else I'd eat to excesses. I'd like to get to the point where I can have these things in moderation once in a while, but I know that I need to build up to that.
___

My mind is still going to be my biggest challenge. Excessive indulgence vs self control. How do you maintain a strong mind?
