Whew it's been a ROUGH week and a half! My resolve has been tested over and over again, I GAINED instead of losing because I'm a "stress gainer". My body holds onto water & salt like a mizer! I've been discouraged, disgusted, downhearted, & disease blocked. BUT..... I REFUSE TO GIVE UP! Every day, sometimes through LOTS of frustration tears, I MUST move my body to help it! You say "well Coach, I just don't have it in me today".... and I GET it. I do. But, I can't let you stay there. The more we don't move, the worse our pain gets. Even if it's walking a lap or a few laps around your living room....you' ve GOT to move that body! If you're bed ridden, try moving your arms & legs in some creative way. Honest to goodness there have been times when rocking back & forth on my side in the fetal position has been what I could do at the time. It IS hard....it DOES suck sometimes....but keep fighting! This is YOUR life, NOT fibro's life.

Eating for Flare Ups


Get some nutrients in the body as soon as possible! For me I drink Shakeology shakes because they are PACKED with dense nutrients for the body. When I feel this horrible I hate eating which drops the blood sugar and actually makes pain worse! This way I can chug my nutrition and get it over with. Plus...they just plain taste good and they help me fight the waves of nausea. If you'd like info on ‪#‎Shakeology‬ please contact me. Make sure to eat vegetables and some protein when you are in a flare. Stay away from processed sugar, flour, and aspartame as they will kick your pain into high gear. ‪Message me for info and details

Fighting Body Pain - You are NOT alone

I'm documenting my fight today on my Intagram and Facebook accounts. You can find me under "Fibrocombat" on Instagram and at www.facebook.com/sherri.kohls for Facebook.
I'm having a super crappy fight with Fibro and Allodynia these last 2 days.




I had my aunt who is a #fibrocombat warrior contact me today with a question on cloudy days. Here is what I shared:

"Yep, same here. The barometric pressure changes cause the actual air pressure around the human body to change. For people with chronic pain challenges such as arthritis, Lupus, MS, Fibromyalgia, and many more...the change in weather can intensify their symptoms. That's one reason I HATE to fly. The airpressure in the plane is like being squeezed by a boa constrictor. My legs and feet usually swell so badly. I've learned to wear compression socks to fight that. Some tips are: IF your Dr. approves it and it's safe to then take a 2nd dose of your pain meds, alternate heat & cold to particularly painful areas, and as crazy as this sounds TRY to make yourself cry. The chemicals released in the brain actually help alleviate pain in the body when we cry. I will usually make specific time to have a few minutes to 1/2 an hour to let myself have a good cry. Afterward I can literally feel a "wash" of release come over my muscles & joints and I can manage a little better. Love you!"

Health Progress!! - Start today to have a different tomorrow!



















Every day I'm getting closer to my goals! This is more than "weight loss" this is a fight for my quality of life! Don't let your disease claim your whole day. Take back as many minutes as you can today! EVEN IF IT'S ONLY 1! Take it BACK!

Keep Fighting Keep Moving

So Fibro won a little tiny bit today. I was only able to do 15 mins of power walking instead of 30, and I had to keep my Treadclimber on a little slower speed for my 30 mins on there. BUT... it doesn't matter. What matters is... "Keep Going". Every day I'm making a step toward a healthier life and a more active "me". Fibro might have smacked me around a little today, but I threw a few punches of my own  Keep fighting for your quality of lfe!

A Work in Progress

A work in progress  Fighting for my quality of life 
Confession: 
I have been approached with the opportunity to become a health/fitness & motivation coach and I would love to focus mostly on people living with pain. It would be an extension of what I'm already doing to fight my own circumstances & I REALLY want to help others do the same. Plus I want them to see the real deal, pain, struggle, good & bad days and all of it so they know they're not alone in this. Anyway...it's a big prayer focus for me right now. It's a big responsibility. The first photo is hard to share. I look at my face & it says it all. #Fibromyalgia is a thief. Fighting back us a chance to still have some say over what's happening to us. Its a way to take back power & stand up (physically & emotionally) for one more day. Even if it's one lap around the living room...it's a VICTORY!
