For each cycle restart the AMRAP. ▪️Each year in the United States Navy, a highly qualified and elite cadre of Sailors are selected and promoted to the join the ranks of Chief Petty Officer. Since 1893, "The Chiefs" have been relied upon by subordinates and superiors alike for their personal example, technical expertise and above all, their unique leadership capabilities. As the induction process for newly selected Chief Petty Officers is now underway throughout the US Navy, we thought it appropriate to inaugurate "The Chief" in honor and recognition of all past and present CPOs. Thanks to them and their families for their self-sacrifice, ability to adapt, tireless dedication to mission and devotion to country.
Day 11 #diabetesawarenessmonth. Fact....I thought my world had ended when the Drs said...’you have Type 1 Diabetes’. I knew nothing about it other than Diabetics lost limbs, had kidney failure, went blind & died at an earlier age!!! I was truly terrified that life as I knew it was over- no more running, swimming, competing in Triathlons! It was actually that way at 1st; there is very little support especially mentally for Adult Type 1’s & I was out there on my own. Fortunately I found groups online/social media that were incredibly supportive/knowledgeable &!exactly like me! Now I don’t blink at those 3 words! 😘😘 #type1strong#typeonegrit#type1athlete#type1diabetic#whatdoesntkillmemakesmestronger#mumsthatworkout#fitnessinspiration
Day 10 #diabetesawarenessmonth Fact......if u think Type 1’s r strong then u have never met the Parent of a Type 1 child!!! It’s one thing being an adult with this horrid disease but I can’t imagine the continual worry, anxiety & stress of being the Parent of one. They often set their alarms every 2 hrs through the night to check that their child is still alive!!! They have to live the disease through the child with added stress of worrying if the child is ; sneaking food, being fed sugar by another Carer/friend & being given the correct medication whilst at school.....the list is endless!!!! I am completely in awe of Type 1 Parents!!💪😘 #type1strong#type1athlete#type1diabetic#diabetesawareness#mumsthatworkout#whatdoesntkillmemakesmestronger#fitnessinspiration
“Forgiveness is a conscience decision to live in the present even though the past still hurts”. ~Unknown. Today I will be heading to the Bay Area to visit my ailing Grandpa who may not have much time left on this Earth. It just so happen that my Dad is now living with him, we haven’t spoke in almost 15 years. My emotions are all over the place. I’m trying to find forgiveness & understanding in my heart for the past, to let go of what I cannot change and strength to get through the next few days. Please send good vibes, love and prayers my way I am going to need it.♥️ #findingforgiveness#icandothis#whatdoesntkillmemakesmestronger#lettinggoofthepast#nervous#bethebiggerperson

Sometimes jumping of the cliff will lead us to freedom!
A year ago I was crying Whichi's death, a man who taught me unconditional love and loyalty. Even though we had differences our friendship was real, his love for my family was from the heart. Today I'm going to meet some of his roots. I'm sure, wherever he is... he's proud and happy for me. R.K.P. Whichi!! Now.. to enjoy the #beauty of #unity , where the sky and Earth are one with the universe... 🌠

It had been 9 months since my last full-on asthma attack. Last night, this was the beginning of what would turn into a 2 hour torture session. It was really windy/cold during my run and I felt the attack coming on during the last kilometer. I stopped 500m short of my intended distance and walked home. Took my puffers within 15 minutes of getting in, but it was too little too late.
What followed was 2 hours of coughing fits, difficulty breathing and violent convulsions. I was frozen despite having multiple thick fleece blankets placed over me. Eric held me the entire time trying his best to warm me up and calm the spasm that would take over my body. Nothing worked. The pain and exhaustion the lack of oxygen and the convulsions caused is like nothing I've ever felt before. It was absolutely terrifying. This one even got a few tears out of me; it hurt like hell.
These asthma attacks are always a humbling experience. They serve to remind me of how lucky I am to be able to run at all. My asthma used to be much easier to trigger. And though they're incredibly painful, annoying and frustrating, they remind me of my strength, stubbornness and determination. I don't like being told what I can't do and I'll be damned if I'll let my defective lungs stop me from doing something that I love. So yeah, you win this one lungs. But I'll be back for more - you know I like it rough. 😜
“What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger” - they say. Yep, I can certainly relate to this. Can you?
The other day my husband and I were taking a long walk, taking about life, business, our journeys - everything really. But we particularly reflected on what brought us to where we are now.
Both of us have seen a fair share of hardship. Things didn’t come easy to us - we had to work very hard for what we have now. However, no matter what struggle we faced, we tackled it head on and always came out as stronger people.
I believe that everything in life happens for a reason. Every challenge is a valuable lesson! We learn, we grow, we become better versions of ourselves as we navigate the stormy waters of life.
If you are currently facing a problem, remember, it’s all temporary! You WILL get through it and you WILL find meaning in it.
“No rain, no flowers” - they say. Well, I agree.
