Here is my first ever filmed and edited video 🤗 you might have seen it earlier but it got deleted because I don’t understand copyright 🙃 The song is Formation by Beyoncé because it was one of the few good songs I actually have downloaded from iTunes. I know I’ll get better at this as I practice, but I hope you like what I’ve learned so far! 😊 If you have any tips or tricks, I’d love to hear them. And if you know ANY local artists (I’m into rap and hip-hop, but I can get down with just about anything) , tag them below! I’d like to find a way to support them and not have to deal with Instagram blocking my videos. 🤣
Anyways, here’s the workout:
I used my heavy Fit Simplify band (I bought mine off Amazon) and I grabbed an old towel! - Curls 2 x 20
- Bended Rows 2 x 20
- Body Crossing Bended Rows 2 x 20
- Lat Pulldowns 2 x 20
- Tricep Pulldowns
I also did jump squats, wall sits, and push ups! I almost always go to the gym, but sometimes I just don’t have the time. These bands are awesome and they really help me to get a quick workout in at home. 😚 I’ll admit that these types of workouts just don’t give me that pump I feel when I’m lifting at the gym BUT this is my lifestyle so if all I have is 30 minutes to do something active, then this is what works for me. I’m not making excuses anymore and it feels so freaking great. I hope you guys can get that feeling, too. 💪🏼😘
Many of you know that my dear husband and life’s companion (always willing to go on every crazy adventure my brain conjures) has just been diagnosed with bladder cancer. We met with the urologic oncologist on Friday, and have come up with a plan of action after three cystoscopies and biopsies galore. The cancer is Stage 1, high grade, With CIS (aggressive phenotype). Going to try to save the bladder. We will be doing BCG, which is an immunotherapy. They instill BCG (tuberculosis vaccine) in your bladder once per week for 6 weeks and at 3 month intervals for a while. We are doing more frequent cystoscopies than normal protocol to closely monitor recurrence (61% chance of in 1 yr, 75% in 3 yrs). If it reoccurs the bladder comes out. CT scan before we start to make sure there isn’t metastasis already. He enrolled in a clinical trial BCG Tokyo-172, which is approved in Europe. On the home front we are eating healthy, juicing daily and trying to stay optimistic. Hope we can get back to adventures soon!
Thanks to everyone for remembering us. #beelineadventures#beelinemisadventures#husband#mrhandsome#cancersucks#cancer#bladdercancer#bcg#biopsy#pray#health
This time last year was the hardest after twelve hours of surgery, being told it was a medical miracle watching you struggle but staying strong and telling me you were going to stick around for us and always make sure we are okay. Fast forward to today watching you doing good and watching you scream at the top of your lungs for your team just adds on to the list of great experiences I am lucky enough to have with you. #iloveyoudad#cancersucks#raidernation

For the past 6 months of chemotherapy, I got to know myself more everyday. Sometimes I looked at the mirror, I didn’t recognise my face anymore. Every time when I wore the different wigs i felt like I was another person. What I had been through the past 6 months no one can actually understand me. Every person is different and they don’t share the same exact experience when they are going through treatment. No one can help you for what you actually want. No one can love you for how you want to be loved. When you were suffering the pain and sadness, no one can actually understand how you feel. When someone abandoned or ignored you, I realised that it was totally pointless to spend your energy to gain the love and care. I had spent so much time to think about other people and what left inside me it was just emptiness if I don’t think about what I want. I always think about “You and I” or “All of us”. If my cancer comes back to me again, I will know better what to do. I tried to be positive here but seriously I can’t. I know the fact that my type of breast cancer likely to come back. I didn’t take care of myself well enough during these period. I had been through hell conditions of life. Loneliness was one of them. I felt the world is dark and was unable to see the people around you. They disappeared. They avoided you. They whispered among themselves and said that you were crazy sick and needed help. They didn’t come to help you but they were pity on you. I am not scared of dying anymore. During these months, I was living in hell. I had been through that. What is the next step? Heaven? Yes, so I will go to heaven when I cannot breath anymore. Love yourself because nobody will love you like the way you want to..

It makes me want to cry when I think about or say I'm now a 3 x breast cancer fighter.
My first battle was in 2011, my 2nd started in August 2017, round 1 of Taxol chemo Sept-Nov and I had to do a mastectomy in December 2017 when the tumor grew as it turned out to be DCIS/sarcoma, and I finally finished round 2 Adriamycin chemo May 2018. I thought I was done & celebrated.
I was just about to start the reconstruction phase in August 2018 when the MRI showed an enlarged lymph node on my good side. I had to do an ultrasound & biopsy. I just found out 2 days ago there's cancer in the lymph node on my good side. I was clear of cancer after chemo until June and now this within 1 month's time.
When I don't think about having cancer again, I'm okay, I can carry on with my life like nothing is wrong. Once I think about it, I'm a mess. I want to crumble into a tight ball, cry my eyes out & wish the cancer away.
I don't know if I can handle dealing with cancer all over again, back at square one. I'm angry about that. It's been a long hard road already. People look at me & think I'm okay and strong, but inside I'm really not. I'm scared. I'm trying to remain strong & positive but that's for everyone else's sake.
I have no other choice but to fight & kick cancer's ass again. I just hope this is the last time. Please. I'm strong but I have my limits & I'm there. I wish I was as strong as my mom was. She was a true warrior. I asked my sister what did I do wrong? She said nothing.
Thank you all for all of the incredible amazing supportive loving caring messages I've received since I posted of my cancer recurrence. It brings tears to my eyes. It touches my heart to see such compassion & empathy and that is all I wanted in this world was to inspire that in people. Don't hold it inside, express it, tell others you care & wish them well. Thank YOU! 🙏🏻💗
It’s a funny thing this childhood cancer world.
It’s like all you hear is how rare it is, and then you are thrown into it, and then suddenly it’s everywhere and it’s not so rare anymore.
You suddenly begin to care so deeply about all these other people all over the world, the mother who is feeling so isolated and lonely, and the child who has just lost her eye, the family sitting in emergency in the middle of the night, and the ones hearing the words palliative care, others hearing remission and others hearing relapse, those signing treatment papers that include the words “may cause brain damage, organ failure, death”, the ones watching helplessly as lifesaving poison runs through their babies veins, and the ones posting about their child’s wish list.....grateful to make just one.
The sad truth is while you read this somewhere in the world another child died from cancer, and many more were diagnosed.
Of course it depends on how fast you read - 220 deaths per day and 822 diagnosis per day, about.

Being diagnosed with #cancer has truly challenged my spirit. I was devastated and scared. I have cried myself to sleep. I have drowned my fear in alcohol. I have felt anger for what life gave me and what it may take from me.
From fear to anger to acceptance. I will accept what is to come - good or bad. I will make every moment count in my life and not take what I have for granted ❤️ #cancersucks
Good morning! Today is a weird day, it was meant to be my last chemo before my operation to remove my tumour. I had looked forward to this date because it had originally felt like an achievable target but about a third of the way into this cycle that all changed. After having an infection, neutropenia and consequentially a chemo break, I knew I wasn’t making this target. Pushing forward with no real date in mind is frustrating at best. So today I’ll get new goals and targets which is frightening and exciting at the same. I’m looking forward to having a date I can push towards!! Fingers 😁 xxx

Life comes with the good the bad, and the ugly, and it's my job to show you all three but God is always good~ My Daddy
Life is mostly good and I'm thankful my Daddy prepared us for every season of life not just the good ones. He enjoyed & laughed with us through the good, taught us how to try again through the bad, and held us up through the downright ugly.
The lord says "in this world you will have trouble, but take heart. I have overcome the world" John 16:33~ Daddy was no stranger to struggles. He worked harder than any man I know & lifes demands always seemed to stay ahead of him. He struggled for many years with alcohol for about a decade. As a teenager into my young adult years it was tough to see Daddy go through that. Through those struggles he taught us how to live & how not to live, how to laugh & how to cry, how to struggle & how to recover, how to thrive & how to fight, how to seek God & even how to die.
He passed away last year from a long battle with pancreatic cancer. He was a fighter and he was brave even through that struggle. He taught us everything we needed to know about life. .
Although we miss him here he lives healthy and happy in the presence of the Lord. I miss Daddy terribly everyday especially since I can't tell him about the good the bad and the ugly anymore. I would have loved to share them all with him. .
The seasons are passing quickly. My littlest baby is 2 months old today! Before Daddy passed he knew we were trying for our 2nd. I'm glad he wasn't around still when we experienced a miscarriage and lost that baby. He had a tough enough battle to face with cancer and hearing that would have crushed him. But God was faithful through that tough season and blessed us with this sweet soul. His name is Beau Boone which means a handsome blessing. I hope to teach him all about life too. I'll love him through every season.
Hallo ihr Lieben💌
Endlich ist die Chemo für die Woche geschafft, und ich kann mich ausruhen bevor es nächste Woche weiter geht.. Die Nebenwirkungen waren durch die Erhöhung der Therapie diesmal extrem, ich musste mich viel übergeben, konnte kaum laufen und lag die ganze Zeit nur im Bett. Es war echt nicht schön, mir war nur schlecht, ich konnte kaum registrieren was um mich herum passierte. Vom erbrechen habe ich Hals schmerzen, zudem ist mein Mundraum komplett angeschwollen. Mittlerweile kann Ich aber wieder schlucken und alleine laufen, das nächste mal werde ich wieder die Sonde tragen, so ist es einfacher für mich Nahrung aufzunehmen. Ich bin immer noch sehr müde aber es wird von Stunde zu Stunde besser, entgegen zu gestern und Mittwoch geht es mir viel besser.. Ich hoffe das der Cocktail🥂morgen komplett raus ist und ich das Wochenende genießen kann☺️. Trotz allem kann ich mein Lachen was man vielleicht nicht so ganz durch mein Mundschutz sieht nicht lassen"😂!!! Ich hoffe euch geht es gut soweit! Jetzt werdet ihr wieder mehr von mir hören. Und irgendwie sieht es auf dem Foto total so aus als würden meine Haare wachsen 😍😂aber leider sieht es nur so aus💁♀️✔️
Today, @taliajoy18 would’ve been 19. At just 13 when she passed, she had already accomplished so much.. could you even imagine what she’d be doing now?? I love and miss you, Talibear. We all do. Your laugh, your silly, quirky personality, your hustler heart, your go getter attitude, your creative love for all things beauty, your down for whatever vibes!! You changed my life and I still think of you every day. Happy birthday up in heaven. It’s not the same here without you.❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
