This little cutie is Tickles! She unfortunately grew a rather large cyst on her side. The lump was so large, there was a worry it would start interfering with the movement of her front leg. She came in to have it removed a couple of weeks ago by our vet Amy. Surgery and anaesthesia in small mammals can carry great risks, but we take all the necessary precautions to ensure their safety and comfort.
Tickles recovered really well and went home the same day to rest and recuperate. Amy was so pleased to see her doing really well at her post-op check.
We couldn't help but be amazed by how large the lump was so we took some pictures (with an apple for comparison 😂) #guineapig#guineapigsofinstagram#feelingbetter#vets#dgvgpets
Finally taking a step forward and filming tomorrow and I’m so EXCITED. It’s the step to creating my YouTube for Helenaismus that is about math education and student life and women in STEM and interviews with my fellow BADASS STEM FRIENDS who are ALSO transfer students and just so much more to help those who want FEEL LESS ALONE in their educational journey and career journey. I definitely had some highs and major lows throughout my transfer student experience ( esp. as a math major). I want Helenaismus to be my version of what my past self would have loved to have when I felt alone in my quest to get my math degree. ❣️Stay tuned ✨😉
If you are looking for a really good Remedial Massage, I can highly recommend @becc.morrison I have had two treatments from her now and she is fantastic...very professional, reasonably priced and she comes to you, which is so convenient for busy people like myself.
I am not sponsored by her and don't get any benefits from advertising her, but it is hard to find a legitimately good Remedial Masseuse that offers the convenience of coming to you out of business hours #thanksbec#feelingbetter#loveyourwork#timeforanap#hurtssogood#remedialmassage#massage#sportspecific
I rested, I made some changes and I am feeling a healthy shift again!! Happy to be back tonight to teach a great Zumba ®️ Class. New music and choreography coming too!! Sometimes when you are so busy trying to get ahead in many ways of your life you forget to take care of yourself. I physically and mentally needed a break. And that’s perfectly ok 👌🏼😘 luckily I have amazing friends and family surrounding me always!!! #backatit#icanadmitit#feelingbetter#zumba#musicislife#rockwood#zumbawithlauren#zumbawithlaurenrockwood
The kiddos have tomorrow off so I get to stay up a little later than usual. Just relaxing and planning the rest of my week out. Been watching a lot of DIY videos for ideas for room designs. Seriously can't wait for our house to be built. #plannergirl#daydreaming#relaxing#feelingbetter
Nugget isn’t feeling very well tonight. He hasn’t eaten or drank since this morning so his foster mom brought him to me. After some tummy meds and fluids he perked up and wanted to play some but still no appetite. We may have to run him to the vet tomorrow and get something to stimulate the appetite. Now he’s resting. He wore himself out. He enjoyed being able to lay with and chew on my senior dog who is very gentle w pups. He has been through a lot of changes this week for a 5 week old pup who misses his mom and litter mates. :( #forgottenpaws#forgottenpawsatlanta#tooyoung#needshismama#puppylove#feelingbetter#acworthdogrescue#atlantahomelesspets
So I’ve been exhausted and fighting off an annoying ass bug. speaking of annoying #pests This picture is from earlier this week but I have a question, am I the only who gets unstable petty when someone fucks with your nicu babies? Cause these whores have no idea what they did. #nicuaunt#wwcommunity#sick#workout#mia#sorry#feelingbetter
Is your Environment Conducive or Constraint? -
Conducive is surrounding yourself with the right atmosphere physically and psychologically. -
Constraint is having limitations and expectations that are holding you back from succeeding. -
The environment that you surround yourself with aka your TRIBE plays a huge part in your life mentally, physically and emotionally. This could appy to work, friends, family, or even fitness. -
I've always surrounded myself with positive people and those that would always help me rise instead of weighing me down. I've always applied this to work, friends, family and my fitness life. And could confirm that I am at my happiest point in life :) -
If you don't like the way something is going, change it! You are the one that is in control of the yoke, the rest are passengers bypassing :) you get the point 🤣
It’s been a looong week; happy to say the hubs and I are on the road, headed to spend the weekend with our son and his family! Wanting to send these words of encouragement to anyone who’s tempted to give up on their Keto journey to health and wellness. This lifestyle truly is a journey for me! I lost weight really quickly when I started 2 1/2 months ago. Then it slowed down...in the past when that happened, I gave up and went back to my bad eating habits. Not this time! A few weeks ago, my wonderful husband said that he thought this time I was finished trying to lose weight for good-that I would be successful, at last. The funny thing was that I’d been thinking that as well. And though the weight isn’t falling off of me, it is coming off! And I have no desire to quit, whereas in past efforts I did. I think it’s so easy for us to get frustrated at others seemingly easy success on Keto, and just quit. But quitting isn’t anything I’ll even consider. I’m excited about feeling more and more fantastic with each passing day! Don’t live on the scale-look for and celebrate “NSV’s”,-non-scale victories; such as clothing you can now wear again, bypassing candy, enjoying a friend’s compliment on your efforts. I had a great NSV today- an awesomely yummy food truck came to my workplace today. Happy to say I stuck with the keto-friendly lunch I made, and never skipped a beat! Don’t give up!! Your triumph is on its way, one good choice at a time! #eathealthy#youcandoit#keto#yougotthis#ketodiet#ketotransformation#dontgiveup#onedayatatime#nsv#feelingbetter#feelinghopeful#ketojourneytohealth#ketojourney#ketorecipes#yourebeautiful
Aslan hung out while I cleaned my car out, he is starting to seem like his old self and enjoyed the fresh air. :)
If anyone has concerns: since he was just neutered, he was not left unsupervised on the rope, and his water bucket was full and in reach. Today was not a hot or sunny day, so he was not hot out there. He is not out in the backyard with other dogs yet because they play very rough and he has stitches in, but they did get to sniff through the fence earlier.
View is from my parents' house (TN, USA) on the hill, looking down on the formerly full farm/creek along the fence. <3
I wasn’t feeling well on Monday night, I think I got the stomach bug 🐛 🤢 on my way to a concert. Fasted all day on Tuesday & finally broke my fast on Wednesday with a @chickfila cob salad. 🥗 I can’t express how YUMMY this salad is. I obviously just ask for it without the corn 🌽 and grilled chicken nuggets. It’s so DELICIOUS 😋 .
