I’ve been consistently making it to the gym at least 6 days a week for the last couple weeks. Even if it’s to walk on the treadmill and stretch... or to work on my swimming skills. I am feeling a shift in motivation and priorities and it feels like I’m becoming the best version of myself. I love my body. I love it so much. It can do so much for me even though I have RA and hormone issues. It feels fucking good to be comfortable in my skin guys, really fucking good. Im not even in the best shape of my life... I’m just in love with how much my body provides for me β€οΈβœ¨πŸ™πŸΌ make sure you show up with kindness for others... but most importantly show up for your own damn self!  #yogisofig #yogaposes #swimmer #yogaflow #yogafit #aloyoga #spoonie #spoonieyoga #spoonieyogatribe #yogalifestyle #yogacommunity #gymgrind #grinding #haventdonethatinawhile #fitness #health #selflove #selfcare #namaste #loveandalliscoming #strengthandspoons #happy #healthy #healing #healingwithyoga #healingwithfood #aip #autoimmunedisease #rheumatoidarthritis #hashimotosdisease
My sweet friend bought me a crackle candle for my birthday ✨ and let me tell ya it’s a game changer for bath relaxation. Excuse me while I melt into the luxurious Epsom bath I drew for myself. I hope you all had a lovely Monday and you did something kind for yourself today β€οΈπŸ™πŸΌ #yogisofig #spoonie #spoonieyoga #spoonielife #yogacommunity #yogalifestyle #meditation #homepractice #selfcare #selfgrowth #manifestyourdreams #autoimmunedisease #rheumatoidarthritis #hashimotos #yogaeveryday #fitness #health #bathtime #epsomsalt #candle #relaxationstation #healingwithnature #healingwithfood #namaste #loveandalliscoming #strengthandspoons
Do you have a certain visualization that calms you down? When I start to meditate I always imagine I’m laying on my back in a lake under the stars surrounded by huge pine trees. It immediately cams me down and helps me melt into my mantras and meditative thoughts ✨✨I could spend hours floating and thinking. It’s easy for me to day dream. Yoga helps me ground myself and create fire and strength for my body. I’m so grateful for it. πŸ™πŸΌβœ¨β€οΈ #yogisofig #yogaposes #yogaflow #yogafit #yogaeveryday #personalpractice #yogastrong #yogalifestyle #yogaphotography #spoonie #spoonieyoga #spoonieyogatribe #strengthandspoons #fitness #health #functionalmedicine #healingwithfood #foodismedicine #autoimmunedisease #invisibleillness #rheumatoidarthritis #hashimotosdisease #spoonielife #meditation #relax #smile #namaste
When you realize your body is healing and you are capable of doing things you haven’t done in awhile... πŸ˜œπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌ Table rock Tuesday was a success shaving ten minutes off our time! Whoo! We both have burning lungs and noodle legs but it was worth it. Filtered the crap outta this so you can’t see my tomato face... it’s fine. Love my workout/accountability partner @thenaturalsweettooth ❀️❀️❀️ #yogisofig #yogacommunity #yogalifestyle #hiking #idahome #hikeboise #getoutside #nature #neature #strengthandspoons #spoonie #spoonieyoga #spoonieyogatribe #spoonielife #fitness #health #healingwithfood #healingwithyoga #namaste #loveandalliscoming #progress #loveyourself #selfcare #practiceandalliscoming
Take a deep breath in. Release. And smile. You are exactly where you are supposed to be ✨ just lean into this moment and experience it for what it is. Don’t think about tomorrow... what is for dinner... everything you need to get done before bed... just. Breathe. And. Smile 😊  #yogalifestyle #yogisofig #yogaposes #warriorpose #warrior #yogaflow #yogafit #yogastrong #yogacommunity #yogaphotography #yogainnature #hiking #spoonie #spoonielife #spoonieyoga #spoonieyogatribe #fitflexyfolk #fitness #health #healing #healingwithfood #foodismedicine #yogaislife #sunshine #namaste #strengthandspoons #eatwhatyoulove #loveandalliscoming #practiceandalliscoming #progress
Turmeric is one of my favorite flavors!! It also happens to do wonders for joint inflammation and pain. I try to get a daily dose of turmeric in. Sometimes I take a tincture, sometimes I make a fancy drink. Either way, I’m giving my body the love and healing it needs! This DELICIOUS @rebbl drink is a quick grab and go dose of turmeric and it doesn’t have any of the gunky crap that you don’t want to put in your body! Check their drinks out, they are my favorite ❀️ #notanad #justlovethem #spoonie #spoonielife #spoonieyoga #yogisofig #yogilifestyle #yogalifestyle #yogacommunity #yogastrong #autoimmunedisease #autoimmuneprotocol #diet #turmeric #health #naturalhealing #foodismedicine #yogaismylife #yogaismedicine #healthyfood #foodie #healyourself #fitness #namaste #strengthandspoons
Thinking a lot about my next steps in healing, life, and personal growth. I’ve got my eyes on the prize and I’m ready for whatever comes my way ✨I’m down 15 lbs (got more to go) and I’m feeling so much better! I’m back into my gym/yoga routine and I’m realizing what things trigger my flare ups. I am starting to feel like I have more control of myself and it’s a great feeling!! #yogisofig #yogaflow #yogaposes #warrior #autoimmunedisease #autoimmunepaleo #spoonie #spoonieyoga #spoonieyogatribe #fitflexyfolk #fitness #yogacommunity #yogalifestyle #stretch #strengthandspoons #hashimotos #rheumatoidarthritis #healingnaturally #foodismedicine #yogaislife #yogaismymedicine #yogaphotography #homepractice #namaste #yogaeverydamnday #yogainspiration #yogalife
Happy Monday folks!! Made a delicious pot roast in my crock pot with some baked crispy red potatoes 🀀 sooo yummy! I saw my integrative doc today and he is very happy with how much better I am doing... yay! We moved on to the next part of my healing plan and we learned my adrenals are very sad and need a boost! So with a handful of herbs later I’m ready to take my healing to the next step πŸ‘πŸΌ this is just the news I needed to hear after a rough pain weekend. ❀️ I hope everyone else found inspiration in their Monday! #rheumatoidarthritis #holistichealth #eliminationdiet #hashimotos #spoonie #spoonielife #spoonieyoga #yogafit #yogacommunity #yogalifestyle #yogadiary #homepractice #fitness #health #naturallyhealing #strengthandspoons  #foodismedicine #foodisfuel #homecooking #integrativemedicine #aip #aipcooking #yogastrong #yogisofig #mondaymotivation
Do you wash your veggies and fruits? What do you use?! I try to at least rinse my veggies but I recently started washing them with an all natural solution to clean them even better. It’s important to clean your veggies even if they are organic! Gets rid of all the bugs and dirt you shouldn’t be eating. As someone who can be sensitive to chemicals I find this step super easy to add to my food prep. I am by no means a germaphob... BUT I find this step important to maintain my personal health! Now to finish dinner 🀀 check out my stories for what the water looked like after 30 seconds of washing 😧 #cleanfood #fruitsandveggies #cleaneating #yogisofig #yogacommunity #yogalifestyle #weekendwarrior #healthylifestyle #spoonielife #spoonieyoga #spoonieyogatribe #strengthandspoons #health #healingwithfood #nourishing #foodismedicine #naturalhome #naturalclub #essentialoils #autoimmunedisease #invisibleillness #hashimotos #rheumatoidarthritis
Have you taken time for yourself today? What are your favorite ways to show yourself some love? Nature, cuddles, movie marathons, bubble baths, exercise, and nutritious foods are a few ways I like show myself some love πŸ’• πŸ’•πŸ’• #yogisofig #yogaposes #yogainnature #yogalifestyle #yogacommunity #spoonielife #healthylifestyle #idahome #neature #spoonieyoga #spoonieyogatribe #strengthandspoons #spoonie #rheumatoidarthritis #hashimotos #healingwithfood #invisibleillness #autoimmunedisease #adventureisoutthere #backbend #heartopener #yogafit #yogaflow #fitness #health #healingnaturally #naturalmedicine #healthyeating
Day 19 of my diet and I’m feeling so much better. Significantly less bloating, stiffness, inflammation, and pain. I’m still waiting for my digestion to normalize but that may take time. Hoping I can make it to 30 days! It’s been a challenge so far. It’s definitely a test in self control and how much I want to actually heal. Can’t wait to get my @dutchtest back and see how we can control my hormones! I’m so excited to learn more about what my body needs πŸ™ŒπŸΌβœ¨ #yoga #yogisofig #yogaposes #yogalifestyle #yogacommunity #yogaismedicine #yogafit #yogaflow #getoutdoors #strengthandspoons #naturepics #healingwithfood #healingwithnature #autoimmunedisease #spoonielife #spoonieyoga #spoonieyogatribe #spoonie #rheumatoidarthritis #hashimotos #weekendwarrior #warrior #warriorpose #invisibleillness #health #healthylifestyle #idahome #neature #yogainnature

Hi lovelies! As you can see I have moved on from virgogoddessyoga πŸ’œto strengthandspoons πŸ₯„βœ¨ I feel like this name encompasses more of what I am aiming for with this account... and it was time for a change. I love to mix it up! The spoons πŸ₯„ part of my name comes from the spoon theory that many people with chronic illness know well. This theory basically makes it easier to understand why living with a chronic illness, particularly an invisible illness, can be such a challenge. The basic definition of this is that the difference between being sick and in being healthy is having to make choices. It also means having to consciously think about things like how much energy does a shower take out of me, grocery shopping, laundry, hanging out with friends, exercise. When you are healthy you don’t have to make a choice between showering or cleaning your house, because you can do both in an hour or so. I may shower and then not be able to do much else with my day because it’ll make me sick. It’s the best way to explain it... The theory was created by @butyoudontlooksick and she is fantastic! I like the strength part of my new name because it’s pointing out that I am not pathetic and I don’t want you to take pity on me. I was handed this sickness for a reason, and it was to make myself more of a priority. I also find strength in healthy eating, yoga, and love... which is mostly what I share on this lovely platform. Hopefully that all made sense! Thanks for reading if you made it this far! Also, I love you πŸ–€ #spoonie #spoonieyogatribe #spoonielife #yogacommunity #yogalifestyle #strengthandspoons #yogamedicine #naturalhealing #naturesmedicine #health #lifestyler #yogisofig #yogastrong #yogaflow #namechange #changeisgood #sodamngood #rheumatoidarthritis #rheumatoidarthritiswarrior #invisibleillness #chronicillness #livingthegoodlife
