Pumpkin spice e n e r g y b i t e s!🤗 . Because I’m gonna need ALL the energy⚡️ I can get over the next few days as I go in to my long work stretch! I’m working 6p-6a at the hospital 5 of the next 8 days! . I know that going into this coming week prepared is going to help me stay on track with my nutrition and help me avoid the snack table they have put out that is filled with gummies, cookies, pretzels and chips! . So to set myself up for success I made these delicious pumpkin spice energy bites! I didn’t measure anything - I just added ingredients until it was able to form into tasty little bites: -pumpkin spice shakeo -natural peanut butter -raw honey -oats -chia -flax meal -cinnamon . This and other fall inspired recipes are things that I will be sharing in my upcoming “Clean Up Your Pumpkin Spice” group! You’ll get to try the new pumpkin spice shake and get some of my fave fall recipes! . Drop a 🎃 below if you want more deets in how to join the group!!

Keď som bola mladšia, chcela som si našetriť peniaze a dať si jazvu odstrániť. Hanbila som sa nosiť plavky a iné oblečenie, ktoré jazvu nezakryli. Teraz viem, že by to boli zbytočne výhodené peniaze a s oblečením nemám problém, pretože tá jazva je symbolom, že som prežila, a keď som zvládla toto, neexistuje na svete nič, čo by ma zastavilo. #scarsarebeautifulproject #zipperclub ❤️ @brigittazatko @savetheheartbeat @chd_hearts ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ #scarsarebeautiful #adultwithchd #chdadult #chdawareness #halfaheart #girl #potd #healthylifestyle #heart #heartwarrior #selfportrait #openheartsurgery

(Temporary post )I promise , after this , normal service will resume on this account , but I wanted to use my following ( even if it is small ) to try raise awareness to things that are extremely close to my heart . On this date 3 years ago , my baby boy was 13 months old and had his 3rd heart surgery ( last pic ) . He has a strangers blood running through his veins and one day , will need more . I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve left him with strangers , and trusted them , not only to look after him , but to save his life . Without the kindness of strangers , this little boy wouldn’t be the crazy weird , outgoing and comical school boy he is today ! If you don’t donate , please consider it .❤️ ( second pic was first open heart aged 4 weeks and 6 days ) #nhs #organdonation #blooddonation #donor #idonate #savealife #tof #tofwarrior #openheartsurgery #zipperclub #greatormondstreet #tinyticker

#therealAtlasJames is #4monthsold! He still loves to chew his fingers and grab Mami's hair. He sleeps great, with one or no wake-ups in the night. To celebrate turning 4 months old, we moved to our new house, and he slept in his shared bedroom with big brother. He rolls from tummy to back, and seems close sometimes to going the other way. I say he gave his first official giggles to his big brother as he watched Rex keep making elephant sounds. Still lots of extremes with this little dude, but more and more happy times. I love the smiles and squeals you give me when I get you when you wake up! I pulled out 6-9 month clothes today and they are none too small! We love you, Atlas James!! . #AJPmonthbymonth #mybabyboy #4months #chd #chdwarrior #coarctationoftheaorta #heartstrong #zipperclub #thoseeyes #thosechubs #thosecheeks #thathair #rollsfordays

My illness is part of my identity💚. You see me fighting everyday. It has defined me as a person. I am stronger for it. I care more. I let myself feel more. My illness defines the choices I make everyday. • I make time to workout so I can keep my heart as long as possible because I have a family who loves me. • I make time to refill my medications and schedule doctor’s appointments so my body doesn’t reject my transplanted heart. • I get a flu shot so I don’t end up in the hospital. • If someone comes to work while ill, I avoid them or go home. • I try hard to ensure my son and husband don’t get ill as I can’t be around them when they are 😢 • I can’t injure myself badly as it takes me longer to heal. Embrace your life and your challenges, insecurities and illnesses. I want my example to put a smile on your face and to inspire you. I stand strong alongside you everyday. My illness doesn’t consume me. I advocate health and life. Be good to yourself 💚💕.

. To say its intense would be a understatement. This holiday feels a lot like a dance on the volcano. Flying to ibiza with a 1,5 years old might be tricky anyway. With our 1,5 years old Leo its mindblowing. Its mindblowing beautiful to watch him in the ocean. This euphoria! This laugh! To die for. We dont care about purple lips - the mediterranean sea is warm like a bathing tube, so we go for it! ✌️ . On the other hand its mindblowing cause he gets so hysterical i fear getting a tinnitus! Today i googled „Can a 18 months old already be in despite phase?“ and „Signs you are a really bad mom“. I stopped googling „Where to get a exorcist?“ Leo has always been temperamental but we are getting to new levels here. Cutting tooth number 13 doesnt help. Being aware that your kid has a lack of oxygen in its blood doesnt help either. „Oh just let him scream for 10 more minutes .. His sats might be in the 60s, so what?“ #nope . Its intense. Its as beautiful as exhausting. Wish me luck for a glorious last day - and that Leo eats something else than bread and chocolate 🙈 #goodnightandgoodluck . #hlhs #heartwarrior #halfaheart #myheartkid #zipperclub #wanderlust #letthemexplore #toddlertravel #travellingwithkids #naturelovers #ibiza #ocean #vitaminsea #endlesssummer #reisenmitkindern #instagood #instamamas_at #nofilter #littleandbrave #childhoodwonders #badmom #makingmemories #travelling_europe #mom_hub #honestmotherhood #motherhoodunplugged #uniteinmotherhood #leo

Almost 5 years ago you changed my life and gave it so much meaning. Till this day I have people asking about my line down my chest and what it means or is it a scar itself. It’s the most symbolic thing I have on my body. It’s beauty of your battles and my undying support for you.. my daughters a fucking TANK.

Did you know I like to ask questions? like, if you fall asleep tuesday at 12am until 8am, did you sleep all of tuesday night or Wednesdays morning? Why do we have planets? Is snow really white or do we just call it white like we do polar bear hair? On top of asking random questions, I like answering serious ones. That being said, do you have questions about my life with CHD? Ask them in the comments below or message me. #heartwarrior #CHD #Zipperclub #heartfailure #mitralvalve #UofM #congenitalheartdefects #heartdefect #chdwarrior #everybeatcounts #life #mechanicalvalve #asd #vsd #tetrologyoffallot #doubleoutletrightventricle.

These results made me wonder....What if 80% of the world knew about CHD and we just had to share with the rest of the 20% who were unaware. That would be pretty easy wouldnt it? Kinda hard to imagine though, because people ask me weekly "what is CHD?"! Help me out so people are informed of this hidden uniqueness.

This kid has no personality...at all... he's also on team no nap today. I plopped him in the pack n' play in hopes he would nap (and hey, maybe mom would too 😂). This was the outcome. Apologies for the shaky video, couldn't stop laughing 😂😂😂

- C O N F I D E N C E - Confidence is something I have always lacked. I get told I’m funny a lot but I think this has been a defence mechanism as I have always just lacked the confidence in my body and how i look. I’ve never been a skinny girl, well apart from when I was 18, going through a rough time and dropped to a size 8, guess what, still wasn’t happy and had zero confidence! And at my biggest, well a 14 was becoming scrimp and I’m only 5ft 3 so cannot carry extra baggage well at all 🙈😂. Today, I’m a size 12 could do with shifting a good few pounds but today I am happy with how I look 6 days out of 7. I can’t pinpoint what clicked, I’m not the size I’d ideally like to be, I have jiggly bits, lumps and bumps but I’m happy! I’m sitting here now thinking it could have everything to do with my eldest daughter... So Brooke has had 2 open heart surgeries and many other surgeries/procedures that have left her with 28 scars scattered all over her little body... so as you can imagine raising a little girl with so many visible scars is worrying, I don’t want her to feel ashamed or self conscious about them, we can’t get rid of them we can’t change them so maybe I can teach her to love them... Brooke will be 4 next month, she’ll flash you the zipper scar down her chest at any opportunity and be happy to tell you how it got there, she’s damn proud of It! Success! If she can love herself, I can too so I go to bed at night and instead of letting my mind wander, in my head I tell myself something I felt good about today, I go buy the top I’ve been wanting but not sure I can pull it off, I experiment with make up to see what I like and feel good about wearing. By teaching my 3 year old daughter to love herself I have finally begun to take my own advice... #confidence #positivebodyimage #averagesizegirl #positivity #loveyourself #lovewhatmakesyoudifferent #growingconfidence #childhero #childwarrior #chdwarrior #zipperclub #raisinggirls #chunkybutfunky #openheartsurgery

When you’re recovering it’s little things that brighten your day and make you feel good inside. It’s so easy for people with not much understanding of major surgery or illnesses to not fully understand how going through something like this affects you physically but also mentally. Thank you so much to @itschrisroberts and @sroberts1960 for this thoughtful yet brilliant gift 💕 Chris suffered a heart attack a few years ago, we met to first talk about our heart journeys and how the physiological aspect affects you but now I happily class Chris a very good friend of mine . . . . . . . . #physcology #cardiacsurgery #friends #gift #thoughtful #heart #ticker #happysunday #journey #zipperclub #heartbeat #beatinghearts

I swore I would never go all out for a birthday party. I also never thought I would do a character party. But the things you do for the little muffins you love! I can’t believe we are celebrating {almost} 2 years with our Lucy girl! I almost cried while everyone was singing her Happy Birthday. Her life is beyond words precious to us. Every single moment the Lord gives us with her (and honestly, it should be this way with everyone we hold dear), is such a precious gift. Lucy girl, we love you more than words could ever express! Happy early birthday little lion! Too many hours in the kitchen, the pain in my lower back and feet are all worth it for you little one! 💗 🦁 #lucyleonarae #prayforlucylion #ebsteinsanomaly #chd #chdwarrior #heartwarrior #zipperclub

Pumpkin spice and everything n i c e!🍁 . This new spin on my favorite superfood shake has just the right mix of pumpkin and spice! I taste the pumpkin first and then get the spice at the end. But it honestly tastes just like a pumpkin pie {if not better!}🎃 and without all the bad stuff and calories! There is ZERO guilt with this delicious shake! . This limited edition seasonal flavor sold out in less than 24 hours! So that means the only way to get it now is through me! I stocked up and grabbed a few extra boxes so that I could grab some friends and spend a week together in what I’m gonna call a “clean up your PSL” challenge!🍂 . Im looking for friends who have n e v e r tried Shakeology before but have wanted too!! You’ll get the new PS shake along with some of the regular flavors and my favorite fall crock-pot healthy recipes! . We will spend this week together {channeling our inner basic b’s} making better choices when it comes to our nutrition and fitness.💁🏻‍♀️ . But I only have FIVE spots available. So if you have never tried Shakeology before, comment👇🏻 for more info and to snag your spot so I can help you simplify one meal a day!

Can I tell you something? Sometimes it's easier to hide in the dark about my CHD. Then people treat me "normal".Then I'm not treated different or looked at different. I'm just treated like everyone else.....normal. Here's the thing. I think that's part of this battle! I think that it is satan telling me I'm not enough for this world. That I'll never be enough. So how do I fight this battle on a day to day basis? I remind myself that I'm a beloved child of the one true King. That I'm enough for Him and that He will never ever leave me and the He made me who I am for a purpose. I believe that whole heartedly and on the days I dont feel like believing it He finds ways to reminds me. He is why Im not ashamed of telling people I have CHD and that our God is good! like the hoodie? click the link in my bio to purchase yours today! #heartwarrior #CHD #Zipperclub #heartfailure #mitralvalve #UofM #congenitalheartdefects #heartdefect #chdwarrior #everybeatcounts #life #mechanicalvalve #asd #vsd #tetrologyoffallot #doubleoutletrightventricle.

Life is about balance. Be kind, but don’t let people take advantage of you. Trust, but don’t be deceived. Be content and grateful, but never stop improving yourself. Even though I was born with a congenital heart defect (Aortic Stenosis) I do not consider myself a victim. I’m a driver, striver, and a thriver @davidmeltzer 😉 I am not a product of my circumstances. I am what I continue to work on and make of myself. The @Beckford_Bar will give you an upper-body and complete chest workout. The full range of motion will help develop size, definition, strength, and target your core in a way that no other single exercise is capable of doing. song credit: @kidcudi “Pursuit Of Happiness” Feat @whoismgmt & @ratatat 🔥🎶 @steveaoki remix . . . #beckfordbar #heartwarrior #noexcuses #aorticstenosis #zipperclub #upperbody #chest #core #challengeyourself #getoutside #pushyourself #entrepreneur #leaderscreateleaders #beckfordbarpushupchallenge #kidcudi #mgmt #pursuitofhappiness #ratatat #steveaoki #passionpainanddemonslayin #maxout #pushupchallenge #connectedtogoodness #balance #fitness #motivation #rallyflipcap #headstartcaps #bekind #inspire

Fall fashion find at Michaels. Decided to swing by to check out Halloween stuff and I couldn't resist trying on some fun hats. In post-op updates, it is week 36 post #openheartsurgery and everything is going well. Still get some slight discomfort around the sternum if I move a certain way or when I breath deeply. Was told it could take a year for it to completely subside, in part due to microfractures. #halloweenhat #halloween #halloweenbrowsing #halloweenshopping #hellofall #openheartsugeryrecovery #heartsurgeryrecovery #openheartsurgerysurvivor #heartsurgerysurvivor #zipperclubmember #zipperclub #congenitalheartdefect #aorticaneurysm #bicuspidaorticvalve #chdawareness #1in100

A new journey: 💆🏼‍♀️ Today I embark on a new path. Now, don’t panic. I’m still a Massage Therapist and yoga teacher. That’s not changing, trust me. 🏃‍♀️ I’ve done a lot of reflection lately and a big anniversary is coming up for me, and I felt compelled to challenge myself. ▫️ In 6 months, it will be my 10 year anniversary of my heart surgery. Originally I was told the surgery usually only lasted about 10 years before another was required. I’ve since researched that’s no longer the case. Wahoo! 😳 However, for a while I was quite scared of another surgery despite being healthy. So I want to increase my odds of living a heart-healthy life sans another surgery and decided to build up my cardio and run a 5K near my anniversary date. 😝 Now those who know me, I’m sure you are laughing right now. I know, I know, I hate running. Nonetheless, this is my challenge. ⏱ I’ve even hired personal trainer, @stephenjcornely to motivate me, ensure healthy exercise goals and keep me accountable. 🙋 I’ll post some progress from time to time and feel free to share your experiences with running, marathons or any challenge you’ve given yourself. 🙏 . . . . . . . . . . #challengeyourself #yogateacher #hearthealth #runningchallenge #personalgoal #5ktraining #heartsurgery #zipperclub #cardio🏃 #massagetherapist #phillyyoga #phillyrunner #philadelphia #myjourney #alwayslearning #keepingitreal #thisisnotajoke #faceyourfears #personaltrainer #positivethinking #ihaterunning #focusforward #outofmycomfortzone #yogiclife #barefoottraining

Amor que me ha enseñado a enfrentar la vida, a ser valiente, a creer que el amor lo puede todo, a no rendirme nunca y buscar siempre la luz y la alegría viviendo en amor, sonriendo, jugando y soñando #nacidaenjulio #nacidoenfebrero #corazonespersonalizados #chdwarrior #zipperclub #motherofaheartwarrior #nostalgiadejulio 11 años recordando cirugía ❤ #esunangelenlatierra
