Excellence over time. Show up every day and make yourself better. You are only competing against yourself. You are all you really have at the end of the day. • • Twisting away my worries in #eaglepose wearing: @aloyoga • • •  #yogisofig #yogaposes #yogastrong #spoonie #spoonieyogatribe #inversionjunkie #spoonieyoga #spoonielife #warrior #invisibleillness #rheumatoidarthritis #yogacommunity #yogalifestyle #fitness #health #aip #autoimmune #autoimmunepaleo #healingwithyoga #healingwithfood  #powerofnature #antiinflammatory #healthy #namaste #strengthandspoons #fitness #painmanagement #aloyoga #fitflexyfolk
It’s starting to get a little chilly.... which is weird for Idaho. Usually we have already hit the “scraping your car windows in the morning” weather 🤣 I started a probiotic and started adding in fermented foods—so exciting! I’m almost done with my stomach rehabilitation. Hopefully I won’t have to do another round any time soon! Kombucha, I missed you ✨💕 • • •  #yogisofig #yogaposes #yogastrong #spoonie #spoonieyogatribe #inversionjunkie #nature #naturephotography #boiseriver #spoonieyoga #spoonielife #warrior #invisibleillness #rheumatoidarthritis #yogacommunity #yogalifestyle #fitness #health #aip #autoimmune #autoimmunepaleo #healingwithyoga #healingwithfood  #powerofnature #antiinflammatory #healthy #namaste #strengthandspoons #fitness #kombucha #boochlife
I woke up today and I had a headache. I was bloated and uncomfortable. My elbow was so sore and stiff it brought tears to my eyes to move it. My knees were burning. And my lower back was swollen and stiff. But I got up. I got out of bed. I put my gym clothes on and I went to the gym. I bought a delicious açaí bowl afterwards as a treat. I haven’t felt this bad in a month or two, so I’m definitely flaring a little bit. All I can do is make sure I make myself more strict with my diet and give myself some love ❤️this is your reminder that you are strong and capable of anything • • •  #yogisofig #yogaposes #yogastrong #spoonie #spoonieyogatribe #nature #spooniesupport #spoonieyoga #spoonielife #warrior #invisibleillness #rheumatoidarthritis #yogacommunity #yogalifestyle #fitness #health #aip #autoimmune #autoimmunepaleo #healingwithyoga #healingwithfood  #powerofnature #antiinflammatory #healthy #namaste #strengthandspoons #fitness #chronicillness #chronicpain #painmanagement
Thank you for sharing your journey with us @strengthandspoons 🙏🏼💕 • #repost @strengthandspoons with @get_repost ・・・ I’ve been consistently making it to the gym at least 6 days a week for the last couple weeks. Even if it’s to walk on the treadmill and stretch... or to work on my swimming skills. I am feeling a shift in motivation and priorities and it feels like I’m becoming the best version of myself. I love my body. I love it so much. It can do so much for me even though I have RA and hormone issues. It feels fucking good to be comfortable in my skin guys, really fucking good. Im not even in the best shape of my life... I’m just in love with how much my body provides for me ❤️✨🙏🏼 make sure you show up with kindness for others... but most importantly show up for your own damn self!  #yogisofig #yogaposes #swimmer #yogaflow #yogafit #aloyoga #spoonie #spoonieyoga #spoonieyogatribe #yogalifestyle #yogacommunity #gymgrind #grinding #haventdonethatinawhile #fitness #health #selflove #selfcare #namaste #loveandalliscoming #strengthandspoons #healthy #healing #healingwithyoga #autoimmunedisease #rheumatoidarthritis #hashimotosdisease
My best friend for this upcoming flu season. I’ve been randomly feeling “gunky” like I may be getting sick and I take some of this to boost my immune system. Elderberry has long been used to help keep influenza at bay and heal respiratory distress. It soothes digestive upset and heals infections. It truly is a magical herb that can be used for many types of illnesses. I’m choosing to forgo my flu shot this year and grabbing my elderberry instead. This awesome blend also has echinacea, raw honey, propolis, and ACV. All powerhouses for anti inflammatory, healing, and strengthening the immune system ✨  #yogisofig #yogaposes #yogastrong #spoonie #spoonieyogatribe #spoonieyoga #spoonielife #immunesystem #fluseason #warrior #invisibleillness #rheumatoidarthritis #yogacommunity #yogalifestyle #fitness #health #aip #autoimmune #autoimmunepaleo #healingwithyoga #healingwithfood #elderberry #fxmed #functionalmedicine #healingherbs #powerofnature #antiinflammatory #healthy #namaste #strengthandspoons
Get out of your own way ✨✨ something I keep telling myself over and over again. Stop worrying that you aren’t losing weight, stop freaking out that you ate something you shouldn’t have, stop COMPARING YOURSELF TO OTHERS. This one is important. Look at yourself in the mirror every morning and tell yourself that today you are going to be a better version of YOU today. ✨🍂🌫 #yogisofig #yogaposes #yogastrong #spoonie #spoonieyogatribe #spoonieyoga #spoonielife #boise #idahome #rheumatoidarthritis #yogacommunity #yogalifestyle #fitness #health #aip #autoimmune #autoimmunepaleo #healingwithyoga #healingwithfood #yogaeverywhere #splits #yogaprogress #progress #progresspic #antiinflammatory #healthy #namaste #strengthandspoons #aloyoga
I love me a big plate of veggies and protein 😍😍 gold potatoes roasted in garlic salt and coconut oil, kale/zuchinni mix steamed in water and spices, and a salmon burger from @costco 😍😍 this was an amazing anti-inflammatory gut healthy meal and so quick and easy to make!

Some coconut clusters stashed away in my wonderful @stasherbag 😍😍 I seriously love these. So easy to clean and carry everywhere!! You can even cook things in them! 😳 I’m a sucker for anything that reduces my footprint on the environment. I try to do my research and make sure my money isn’t wasted and I can confidently say these bags are THE BOMB in every way ✨👏🏼 I bought mine at @target but they have more options when you buy them from their website! #notsponsored #justlovethem #yogacommunity #sustainableliving #yogalifestyle #healthyeating #aip #autoimmunedisease #autoimmuneprotocol #coconut #healthyliving #strengthandspoons #namaste #environmentaladvocate #environmentallyfriendly #stasherbags #reduceplastic #treadlightly #selflove #selfcare #spoonie #spoonielife
Shots!! I’ve been taking twice daily shots of a combo of these two and filtered water in order to combat the sickness going around in my social circle AND the inflammation from working out and my upcoming wisdom teeth extraction. Always making sure I’m thinking ahead and taking care of my body BEFORE it breaks down on me. I’m determined as hell to have a healthy fall/winter (my most challenging time of the year for my flare ups) ✨✨ what kinds of things do you do to keep from flaring up??

Do you have a certain visualization that calms you down? When I start to meditate I always imagine I’m laying on my back in a lake under the stars surrounded by huge pine trees. It immediately cams me down and helps me melt into my mantras and meditative thoughts ✨✨I could spend hours floating and thinking. It’s easy for me to day dream. Yoga helps me ground myself and create fire and strength for my body. I’m so grateful for it. 🙏🏼✨❤️ #yogisofig #yogaposes #yogaflow #yogafit #yogaeveryday #personalpractice #yogastrong #yogalifestyle #yogaphotography #spoonie #spoonieyoga #spoonieyogatribe #strengthandspoons #fitness #health #functionalmedicine #healingwithfood #foodismedicine #autoimmunedisease #invisibleillness #rheumatoidarthritis #hashimotosdisease #spoonielife #meditation #relax #smile #namaste
When you realize your body is healing and you are capable of doing things you haven’t done in awhile... 😜👏🏼🙏🏼 Table rock Tuesday was a success shaving ten minutes off our time! Whoo! We both have burning lungs and noodle legs but it was worth it. Filtered the crap outta this so you can’t see my tomato face... it’s fine. Love my workout/accountability partner @thenaturalsweettooth ❤️❤️❤️ #yogisofig #yogacommunity #yogalifestyle #hiking #idahome #hikeboise #getoutside #nature #neature #strengthandspoons #spoonie #spoonieyoga #spoonieyogatribe #spoonielife #fitness #health #healingwithfood #healingwithyoga #namaste #loveandalliscoming #progress #loveyourself #selfcare #practiceandalliscoming
Take a deep breath in. Release. And smile. You are exactly where you are supposed to be ✨ just lean into this moment and experience it for what it is. Don’t think about tomorrow... what is for dinner... everything you need to get done before bed... just. Breathe. And. Smile 😊  #yogalifestyle #yogisofig #yogaposes #warriorpose #warrior #yogaflow #yogafit #yogastrong #yogacommunity #yogaphotography #yogainnature #hiking #spoonie #spoonielife #spoonieyoga #spoonieyogatribe #fitflexyfolk #fitness #health #healing #healingwithfood #foodismedicine #yogaislife #sunshine #namaste #strengthandspoons #eatwhatyoulove #loveandalliscoming #practiceandalliscoming #progress
Thinking a lot about my next steps in healing, life, and personal growth. I’ve got my eyes on the prize and I’m ready for whatever comes my way ✨I’m down 15 lbs (got more to go) and I’m feeling so much better! I’m back into my gym/yoga routine and I’m realizing what things trigger my flare ups. I am starting to feel like I have more control of myself and it’s a great feeling!! #yogisofig #yogaflow #yogaposes #warrior #autoimmunedisease #autoimmunepaleo #spoonie #spoonieyoga #spoonieyogatribe #fitflexyfolk #fitness #yogacommunity #yogalifestyle #stretch #strengthandspoons #hashimotos #rheumatoidarthritis #healingnaturally #foodismedicine #yogaislife #yogaismymedicine #yogaphotography #homepractice #namaste #yogaeverydamnday #yogainspiration #yogalife
Happy Monday folks!! Made a delicious pot roast in my crock pot with some baked crispy red potatoes 🤤 sooo yummy! I saw my integrative doc today and he is very happy with how much better I am doing... yay! We moved on to the next part of my healing plan and we learned my adrenals are very sad and need a boost! So with a handful of herbs later I’m ready to take my healing to the next step 👏🏼 this is just the news I needed to hear after a rough pain weekend. ❤️ I hope everyone else found inspiration in their Monday! #rheumatoidarthritis #holistichealth #eliminationdiet #hashimotos #spoonie #spoonielife #spoonieyoga #yogafit #yogacommunity #yogalifestyle #yogadiary #homepractice #fitness #health #naturallyhealing #strengthandspoons  #foodismedicine #foodisfuel #homecooking #integrativemedicine #aip #aipcooking #yogastrong #yogisofig #mondaymotivation
Do you wash your veggies and fruits? What do you use?! I try to at least rinse my veggies but I recently started washing them with an all natural solution to clean them even better. It’s important to clean your veggies even if they are organic! Gets rid of all the bugs and dirt you shouldn’t be eating. As someone who can be sensitive to chemicals I find this step super easy to add to my food prep. I am by no means a germaphob... BUT I find this step important to maintain my personal health! Now to finish dinner 🤤 check out my stories for what the water looked like after 30 seconds of washing 😧 #cleanfood #fruitsandveggies #cleaneating #yogisofig #yogacommunity #yogalifestyle #weekendwarrior #healthylifestyle #spoonielife #spoonieyoga #spoonieyogatribe #strengthandspoons #health #healingwithfood #nourishing #foodismedicine #naturalhome #naturalclub #essentialoils #autoimmunedisease #invisibleillness #hashimotos #rheumatoidarthritis
Have you taken time for yourself today? What are your favorite ways to show yourself some love? Nature, cuddles, movie marathons, bubble baths, exercise, and nutritious foods are a few ways I like show myself some love 💕 💕💕 #yogisofig #yogaposes #yogainnature #yogalifestyle #yogacommunity #spoonielife #healthylifestyle #idahome #neature #spoonieyoga #spoonieyogatribe #strengthandspoons #spoonie #rheumatoidarthritis #hashimotos #healingwithfood #invisibleillness #autoimmunedisease #adventureisoutthere #backbend #heartopener #yogafit #yogaflow #fitness #health #healingnaturally #naturalmedicine #healthyeating
Day 19 of my diet and I’m feeling so much better. Significantly less bloating, stiffness, inflammation, and pain. I’m still waiting for my digestion to normalize but that may take time. Hoping I can make it to 30 days! It’s been a challenge so far. It’s definitely a test in self control and how much I want to actually heal. Can’t wait to get my @dutchtest back and see how we can control my hormones! I’m so excited to learn more about what my body needs 🙌🏼✨ #yoga #yogisofig #yogaposes #yogalifestyle #yogacommunity #yogaismedicine #yogafit #yogaflow #getoutdoors #strengthandspoons #naturepics #healingwithfood #healingwithnature #autoimmunedisease #spoonielife #spoonieyoga #spoonieyogatribe #spoonie #rheumatoidarthritis #hashimotos #weekendwarrior #warrior #warriorpose #invisibleillness #health #healthylifestyle #idahome #neature #yogainnature
Hi lovelies! As you can see I have moved on from virgogoddessyoga 💜to strengthandspoons 🥄✨ I feel like this name encompasses more of what I am aiming for with this account... and it was time for a change. I love to mix it up! The spoons 🥄 part of my name comes from the spoon theory that many people with chronic illness know well. This theory basically makes it easier to understand why living with a chronic illness, particularly an invisible illness, can be such a challenge. The basic definition of this is that the difference between being sick and in being healthy is having to make choices. It also means having to consciously think about things like how much energy does a shower take out of me, grocery shopping, laundry, hanging out with friends, exercise. When you are healthy you don’t have to make a choice between showering or cleaning your house, because you can do both in an hour or so. I may shower and then not be able to do much else with my day because it’ll make me sick. It’s the best way to explain it... The theory was created by @butyoudontlooksick and she is fantastic! I like the strength part of my new name because it’s pointing out that I am not pathetic and I don’t want you to take pity on me. I was handed this sickness for a reason, and it was to make myself more of a priority. I also find strength in healthy eating, yoga, and love... which is mostly what I share on this lovely platform. Hopefully that all made sense! Thanks for reading if you made it this far! Also, I love you 🖤 #spoonie #spoonieyogatribe #spoonielife #yogacommunity #yogalifestyle #strengthandspoons #yogamedicine #naturalhealing #naturesmedicine #health #lifestyler #yogisofig #yogastrong #yogaflow #namechange #changeisgood #sodamngood #rheumatoidarthritis #rheumatoidarthritiswarrior #invisibleillness #chronicillness #livingthegoodlife
