#ChronicIllnessLife - #Reflection on what you have been through, #learning from it, and knowing where you want to go is important.
I'm spending some time to look back on the start of the year and what I could have already done better.

Don't forget the reason for #MartinLutherKingJrDay.
Here we go, #NFCChampionshipGame. #LetsGoNiners #NinersNation
#OnTheBlog - Recently I've gone back to the #basics of working out and it's made everything better.

Sunday morning means yoga, jacuzzi, and the steam room at my club. #recovery

Sitting on the couch and staring at a fire might be one of the best ways to spend a Saturday night as I get older. Very therapeutic too.
A good surround sound experience at home is key!
I'm already starting to get nervous about the @49ers game tomorrow but I think they will win. Fingers crossed they'll be going to the #SuperBowl. #NinersNation
I love my friends for always being there for me, even when times are bad with my #chronicillness. Thanks to all of those who have supported me.

Saturday morning swim - done. Saturday morning spin - done. Operation relax - started.
Watching my favorite movie right now, #6Underground!
#ChronicIllnessLife - There will always be nights when you know you should eat dinner, but your body just doesn't want to.
I need calories to gain weight but the nausea just doesn't allow it at times.

These guys are HILARIOUS! I have the pleasure of knowing both Chris and Paul. I can easily say they're two of the funniest guys I know. Check out the dates of their new tour!
You know our show was fun when the next day, we’re completely sore, head to toe 👍 #chrisandpaulshow #chrisandpaulshowfuntour
I switched from butter or non-stick sprays years ago to olive oil and avacado oil. Best decision I've ever made. It takes a while, but in the long run, you can truly feel a difference with less inflammation and aches.

Feel that peppery tingle in the back of your throat when you eat virgin olive oil? That's a compound called oleocanthal, and it works like ibuprofen. EVOO also has lubricin, which keeps joints sliding smoothly and protects cartilage from breaking down. https://wb.md/35TZOsa
Every time I see this I get upset. While it's easy to say this is cool and a glimpse into what nature can really be like. I can only imagine what this kid has gone through since. How could he not have nightmares and how are his parents dealing with this challenge?
This isn't cute or funny.
Fuck Zoos in general...but especially zoos that allow for interactions like this. https://twitter.com/ABC/status/1209145675373580292
I was told by some that I could never complete an @IRONMANtri with my #chronicillness. That fueled me to slowly chip away at showing them they were wrong. Now I can say I heard @IronmanVoice call out my name.

Use it as fuel.
I go throw waves of eating a lot of sweet potatoes and then none at all. It's a fairly easy switch with most meals that call for potatoes too. Thanks for the reminder @WebMD. Do you like sweet potatoes?

I haven't been able to take part in #CampOasis yet, but would love to in the future. In my mind, this is one of the most important programs the @CrohnsColitisFn has. It's a major reason I fundraise with #TeamChallenge.
