Lupus sucks!!!

I have learned, fairly well I think, to live with lupus! My biggest/worst symptom is total and complete exhaustion!!! 99% of my life I feel like I got run over by a steam roller!!!! Totally deflated!!! I push thru because, for me, there is NO other option! O refuse to let lupus get the best of me! I thank God daily for my health because it could always be worse! If I’m not gonna have miraculous healing, let me be an inspiration for others! Have a blessed and beautiful day!!!!

lupus sucks

I shared a meme that says 87% of people w lupus downplay their symptoms to avoid upsetting their families. This is soooo true!!! My family knows when I’m suffering but I hide it from the rest of the world. Even they (most if the time) don’t know just how bad I do feel. In my mind, if I deny it, I deny lupus power over me. It is a wicked hard daily struggle but lupus ain’t gonna beat me!!! Have a blessed and beautiful day!!! #stupidlupus #lupussucks

Lupus awareness

I’ve shared with some fellow lupies that I was gonna start bloggin about #stupidlupus but haven’t really followed thru. Til now. May is lupus awareness month so I am gonna dedicate this blog to lupus this month. #lupussucks is a great place to start. I am blessed my lupus isn’t as bad as a lot of others. BUT I am NOT healthy! Everyday is a battle! My worst symptom is chronic fatigue. I have chosen to (currently) not treat with medication, but with diet and prayer. I am also prayin for all my fellow lupies. I REFUSE to let lupus get the best of me!!!! Have a blessed and beautiful day!!!

I chose…. keto aka high fat, low carb

Ok. I was gonna do aip diet, but its just not gonna work for me. I researched til my head was gonna explode and chose keto diet. I gotta have my cheese!!! So today I started… so far, so good. Gotta modify my coffee to come up w whats gonna work for me. That is my most important intake of the day. Havin lupus fatigue, I NEED COFFEE!!!! I’m old school and have my perfectly pink food journal! 💗 Stay strong! Stay motivated! Gonna get this weight off one way or another!!!!

my lupus beginnings

I was diagnosed at 18, after goin to 1 doctor 6 months, constant complaints of random pains, issues, he said it was mental. C-ya! New doctor tested me for everything: enter dx lupus. Medicated until remission. Off and on plaquenil/ prednisone for flares. Fast fwd to now: I’ve been in a flare for almost a year w no relief so I stopped meds. I am making a shopping list to start an AutoImmune Protocol diet (AIP) I am gonna try to log daily for me and anyone else curious of my journey. Tomorrow will be Day 1, prayin for a miracle!!!! Have a blessed & beautiful day❤️💋 #stupidlupus #Iwillbeatlupus #notlettinglupusbeatme

#stupidlupus

I have always loved fitness and nutrition! #stupidlupus makes it hard most of the time. I have decided to dedicate this blog to helping and inspiring anyone I can! In any way I can. I have always prayed if His will isn’t to heal me, then let my story help others. My biggest desire is to be who God designed me to be. I am far from perfect, but I am amazingly blessed! I hope my passion for life can help you. Have a blessed and beautiful day! 💜💗💋

Blech!!!

I was so happy I worked out yesterday! I felt great but today I feel run over by steam roller! I hurt head to toe and am physically drained and exhausted! I am determined to beat this #stupidlupus!!! I have the divine physician on my side, I will overcome!!! I am focused and determined! I have my goals and I control my success! Not givin in to #stupidlupus or my fears and stumbles along the way!!! Have a blessed and beautiful day!!! ❤️💋

soooo outta shape!!!

Today I worked out for the first time in over a year. I’ve been dealin w #stupidlupus for 9 months. I quit all meds and pray I don’t have to get back on any. I am focusin on diet and exercise. Not only because I need to lose weight but because I hate takin meds!!! I am ridiculously outta shape but gonna start w baby steps so I might actually be able to stick to the plan this time! I’m gonna try to keep bloggin my journey so maybe I can inspire someone else in their journey!!! Have a blessed and beautiful day!!! ❤️💋
