2017- 21 Day Fitness Challenge.. With Dex/ Krypolis & Rev


Okay, so I've been displaying some of  my journey when it comes to fitness. My weight has been up and down for about a year now. I'm petite- so my normal weight was around 120lb before I started taking my myeloma cocktail. In 2016 after a horrible all goes wrong with a root canal earlier in the year- my weight dropped from 130lb (gained 10lbs) to 110lb.... it was that bad! Anyway, I recovered from that but found my weight was still leaning towards the danger zone for someone my height (5'3").
I'm on a journey to change how we think our lives cannot change despite a chronic illness. I believe and have successfully pushed on my twitter the need to stay fit and healthy despite the situation- well aspiring towards a Fit trainer- I gotta look like I know what I'm talking about.

I'm taking part of a 21 Day Fitness Challenge and looking forward to sharing my journey with you.
Tomorrow is the day and I guess I'll do more posting than I normally do.

Things to consider:

_I'm a fighter so I'm up for the challenge.
_I like to shop- I'm a fashion professional come on.... I like to look super cute in threads :)
_My journey is just that- Please note my Doctor is aware that I do include fitness in my schedule. ALWAYS go through your fitness journey with your doctor first.
_I recently was prescribed amlodipine... the lowest dose thanks to my intake of Krypolis.
_ Weight is a good thing- My team would rather I have some lbs rather lose, as these drugs can do their most, and we need all the nutrients we can get when combining (KRD)

Therefore, these to consider - I know not to push things if it gets too crazy.

Anyway, can't wait to share my pics and results. Also to share my Yolie Cooks IG... coming soon.
I like to cook and take pics and I've been asked to show more- so 2017 I will supply.

Best

New Way of Movement

It’s been a while to post but this hasn’t slowed me down to handling the things I have on my plate. When COVID 19 hit like so many there was a huge concern, and still is in regard to what this virus means. It was also a concern in what It means for people with underlying issues such as myself. When we hit into the second month of quarantine did I move my concern to action by reaching out to my team to get my blood work tested. My greatest fear was would my present remission state change due to this virus? As I’m sure there are many people worried about similar thoughts. We were at a point where for many we could not reach our doctors for a one to one appointment, and that is scary and frustrating for anyone with cancer. What do you do when you’re totally alone in this or feel like you’re in it alone? Questions I’ve been active on the circuit talking with other cancer survivors during this time, and I tell you it’s been quite scary listening to others express their fee

The Audacity To Live...

I've been moving and shaking in the myeloma community, and it feels good! Anyone who has wandered onto my blog, know that I'm doing and feeling well... Sort of, as I did have walking pneumonia some weeks back. If it's not one thing it's another. I'll have my labs drawn and a follow-up in a few weeks and pray there won't be any hiccups in my remission stage. Well just to get you up to speed, I did a presentation at Mount Sinai Hospital on the Stain of Racial Disparities as it relates to Multiple Myeloma. I touched on the way of the few African American advocates with this disease; We're far and few between, yet cover this beast in higher incidences. Apparently, this conversation has opened up the door to more discussions such as this, and I'm happy to keep at it! I've been working on a fitness coaching/ trainer business and look forward to our website in a few months, or sooner. So I know exercise can be a sore subject for many, as who has

Still Kicking and Moving All Around

Hey Everyone, I'm doing well on this end. I'm currently in remission, and my follow-up next week will actually reconfirm that. We will also discuss the next steps. A lot has taken place this year and I'm just moving with the flow of things. I've been doing my share of writing via different formats online, so I'm excited about helping those also going through myeloma or any other blood-related cancer. I know this is still a harsh struggle for so many of my fellow MM's. I know in the past few months a few people I follow on social media have had a time with the prognosis of their disease, and one has recently passed away. When I hear stories like this it reminds me, that no matter remission this is still a blunt reality that never leaves you. I will always be on pins and needles, as so many of us living this new life. However, with that said I'm LIVING MY BEST LIFE  and doing what I want to do, with a great bunch of friends and family in my corner. Chec
