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.

Mud Girl Obstacle 2023

 This was my first race that was a thrill to take part in. Multiple Myeloma has been a crutch that I've been able to keep at the back end of my shoulder. It is essential to keep living and doing which I tend to do at the 10th degree. Despite the labels, the Mudrun race was a new thing to do and crush. I live by breaking the rules and breaking those assumptions that life stalls. We do know life is short and I find it my kryptonite to not allow the powers that be which sometimes are out of my control to limit what I want to do; perhaps Im fortunate in being able to do things with some limits of course with a different mindset than most.  Crushing this feat of a 3-mile race with 17 obstacles in the mud, and making it through my fear of heights has now allowed me to consider other bucket list possibilities within reason to take a stab at. Cheers to living your best, even when the "You" has been tested at all degrees. Courtesy: Spitfir Production Courtesy: Spitfir Production

Plugging Multiple Myeloma

I had a wonderful conversation with a new friend on the trials of myeloma, and it was interesting that we’ve both experienced to some degree the nonchalant reactions when faced with our disease. The saying to walk a mile in one's own moccasins could never be far from the truth, sometimes you get the feeling that no one cares or your cause and or experience is not of interest...., or better yet taken seriously.... I'm reviewing various sources to promote Another Face of Multiple Myeloma , and after extensive research I found there a not many books on patient related experiences, which I find odd, with the exception of popular myeloma blogger Pat Killingsley, I found just two other personal stories from author's penned memoirs on myeloma, and one unfortunately passed away and the other I'm desperately trying to gather contact information. I was in the process of working with a top myeloma foundation to present my book to readers that could possbly relate to my experi
