'Check out those pipes' said no one ever about my arms!
The picture on the left is Sept 1,17 and the picture on he right is Dec 10.17.

Clearly it was a much #warmer time on the left with the #tan I had going on but take a look at the #arm #gainz ! It may not look like much to anyone but to #me this is such a #huge #accomplishment ! I #play a lot of #sports so unless I'm in the #gym my arms are #neglected almost always.
With my #fasciotomy #surgery 6 weeks ago I made a #conscious #decision to make sure I kept up with my #workouts even though I was very #restricted in what I was allowed or could do. I put a big #focus on my #corestrenght and #uppperbody.

Many slow and steady gym dates and check out these #gainz! It might not look like much but to me, i'm #pumped 👊🏋️
Weird leg muscles post-surgery! Proud of em! 💪🏋🏼‍♀️#compartmentsyndrome #gym #scars #healing #gettingthere #legs #calves #progress #fasciotomy
Warning: close-ups of my incisions are in the next couple pics. You can see my matching scars on the right leg in the first pic (the anterior-right is barely visible!)...Surgeon says things are looking good and healing as expected! #compartmentsyndrome #fasciotomy #surgery #scars #injuredrunner
Thank goodness I did not believe my orthopedic surgeon when he told me I would never do a push-up again after a radial fracture with hardware resulting in a fasciotomy in 2008.

I gave my body plenty of time to heal slowly and experienced the incredible blessings of my restorative and gentle yoga practice.

There are seasons of life when challenging asana expressions are available, safe and sensible. It’s important to not get attached to a specific expression of Asana.

We practice to develop the ability to maintain equanimity throughout all life’s curve balls!

Day 1: toes and feet are a little swollen but better after some AROM. Super thankful for all the help my mom and boyfriend. #day1 #fasciotomy #fasciotomyrecovery #injuredrunner #compartmentsyndrome
PT round two. This leg has more bruising and pain than the right did, but everything looks good and normal according to my therapist, so I am excited to start healing! #fasciotomy #injuredrunner #physicaltherapy #iceicebaby #fasciotomyrecovery #compartmentsyndrome #skirtsports #realwomenmove #skirtsportsambassador
Warning: gross bruising in the second pic. First few days of recovery = swelling & bruising, especially after going back to work. The best solution is lying inverted on the couch with an ice sandwich. #fasciotomy #recovery #injuredrunner #compartmentsyndrome
Isn’t she a beauty! I have bruises all up and down my entire leg. This is my knee. #compartmentsyndrome #surgery #fasciotomy #ouchie #woof #bruises #blackandblue #shiner
Let’s get this recovery show on the road! Surgery went well once it started, but it was delayed. As a result I was very dehydrated and hungry when I woke up, and that led me to being pretty dang nauseated. We got home from the surgery center around 9pm and once I managed to eat some dinner I felt worlds better. I’m sore and swollen today, but that’s to be expected! #fasciotomy #injuredrunner #surgery #compartmentsyndrome #recovery
Day 30 beautiful

It’s the last day of #mindfulnovember I’m so sad it’s coming to an end. I’ve really enjoying posting every day!! So today I was thinking hard about what beautiful means to me. I immediately jump to the material ideal of the word put to us in the media today. But it’s not always about physical beauty what about the beautiful moments too?
And then that got me thinking about some of the beautiful moments I have had this year (of which I can share!) and this photo did bring in both aspects of beauty for me. Because on this day I felt beautiful and I think you’ll agree the other bridesmaids looked stunning. But this moment was so special taking this photo and seeing my best friend meet with her dad just after this was taken and the moment between them was so beautiful.
And as for my bestie; she always always looks stunningly beautiful but on this day she was so graceful and radiant ❤️ but not only that she is beautiful on the inside too and she was so concerned about everyone having what they needed on the day we almost had to tie her down to her her own hair and makeup done 😂

And in this time where we constantly worry about being beautiful and perfect I think we should remember to take in the beauty of moments too ❤️ and be beautifully kind, beautifully patient, beautifully smart, beautifully funny and beautifully strong. True beauty comes from being yourself; remember everyone else is already taken 😘 Coley H 30.11.17 .

Day 29 Energised
Good energy is contagious ☀️ So I’m trying to catch all the positive energy from the sun in this pic and I definitely did feel super energised after the trek up the hill to capture this moment 😂
But it was worth the hike, if only for the company and the hot chocolate waiting for me at the end ☕️🍫 .

Day 28 This Very Moment
Girly catch ups, cups of tea, blankets and Christmas films 🎄💜 This very moment is magical to me. Love spending time with one of my oldest friends. When life gets so busy that you schedule regular Tuesday night dinners in- we are committed to a dinner date every 4-6 weeks. It enters the diary in this very moment so that life doesn’t pass us by and we wait another 6 months before seeing each other again.
Yes it’s not very spontaneous but I long for our catch ups each month and find them just as wonderful as when we’ve arranged them on the same night.
In this very moment I feel calm, happy and loved 💜 what more could I want after a rocky few weeks. Friends are the best!
Remember to call your friends and remind them you love them today 😘 .

SWIPE WARNING! Chicks dig #scars Swipe me left, like you do on #tinder. You'll see these incisions open. Gore lite. I was wide awake and took the photos #fasciotomy
Day 26 Challenging
So many challenges over the past few years and so many to face in the future!
There’s the daily challenges to overcome and the big future challenges to face up to and tackle head on ❤️ It’s ok to admit things are hard and it’s ok to admit that things can be challenging for you. It’s ok to admit that things are too tough and to ask for help; but if you don’t try to face up to the hard bits in life you’ll never know how strong you are!! even if that means you get there with a little help 🌸

As my sister would say I’m a survivor not a victim. So bring it on 💪🏼 .

Day 25 simple things
There are so many simple things in life that bring me great pleasure but that I don’t normally notice.
Like stopping to watch the cats play as they chase a toy mouse around the room 😂 hearing children laughing and the happy buzz of people chatting in a coffee shop.
But the greatest has to be a warm, strong cup of tea 😍 honestly don’t know what life would be like if I couldn’t drink tea. In a very British manner I always reach for the tea if I’m stressed, tired, upset, happy, excited or wanting to catch up with friends. It has to be Tea!
My week hasn’t been great but at every tricky moment a friend, family member or colleague has gone straight for the kettle. What is it about a hot drink that makes things feel better when life’s rough?? I think it could be that warm comforting feeling it gives you and the walls it breaks down for good communication or maybe it’s just a british thing! .

Day 24 favourite memory
This might seem like a strange memory to share. But amongst all the chaos my first going home day from the hospital last year is definitely up there with my favourite memories.
My nurses were hands down the greatest legends that have ever walked into my life but man was I pleased to go home after almost 5 weeks in hospital I was DONE!
I was still quite unwell but after a visit and prayers from my lovely friend Lilli from church I was finally able to be just about well enough to escape the hospital. ❤️ I have never believed more in prayer than on this day because I wasn’t due to be discharged for at least a few more days when they decided to let me leave 👌🏻 Ps spot the spelling mistake 😂 I was still very high on morphine and other pain meds!! .

Day 23 Never Forget
This is an old photo of me in my favourite spot at the @nationaltrust Devil’s Punchbowl at Hindhead.
This photo represents many memories and emotions for me. In this photo I am sat on a memorial bench for both my grandparents 💖 I miss them dreadfully and of course nothing will ever let me forget them.
And yet looking at this photo from a different perspective it reminded me that this is the last photo I have before I got really sick, before I needed 4 major surgeries, before my whole arm became lifeless and numb, before I was unable to move my own fingers and before I had to even consider my life being changed through a disability. This photo was taken the day before I was admitted to hospital and just 24 hours before emergency surgery. I look at this photo and I’m glad that I see no fear, I was in pain here but I was happy ❤️ Little did I know my life was about to change quite dramatically and a long road to recovery lay ahead. And I will never forget how I felt this day and the comfort that comes when I look back and remember how Unafraid I was at this point 😍 they do say ignorance is bliss and I totally agree when I get to remind myself of this! .
