Cryo Recovery post Opp 

FYI: $20 first full body session if you mention me, I was able to get you guys the hookup.

The team at The Cryospot always takes such amazing care of me. I have been utilizing cryotherapy for about a year now for various reasons. And have a older blog post from their old site location. In the past it’s been from injury recovery as well as muscle recovery in general from work outs to get me back into the gym at 110%. 


Recently I have been utilizing cryotherapy to help with my recovery from my breast augmentation surgery. I have a treatment plan of a full body session once a week and a spot treatment on my incision site every other week that will help with the pain and scar appearance. I had a different surgery (related to a skin cancer scare) in the past and I utilized the spot treatment and it made the scar so much more minimal so we are hoping for the same results again! 

So Why do Cryotherapy? 

  •  Muscle fatigue 
  • Knee and joint pain 
  • injury recovery  
  • fibromyalgia
  • planters fasciitis 
  • injury prevention -VERY IMPORTANT to be proactive instead of reactive, I learned this the hard way!
  • Reduces Pain and inflammation
  • Decreases muscle soreness 
  • Faster muscle recovery
  • Boots metabolism and immune system
  • Reduces stress
  • Improves blood circulation
  • Improves sleep pattern
  • Releases serotonin and endorphins (same feeling as that post workout happiness)
  • Improves skin elasticity/ reduces appearance of cellulite 

Also, just a little FYI ..1 session can burn anywhere from 400-800 calories….

9 days post opp: A reflection 

I have shared a lot of #beforeandafter pictures with you guys and this is one that I’ve been debating on posting for a long time because this was during a very difficult point in my life. The person on the left is somebody who was so unhappy and going through such a troubling time. The person in the middle is the happiest and best version of myself I had been in years pre-breast augmentation. After being open and sharing my decision to undergo the augmentation I found out that I have inspired a lot of people to not feel ashamed if don’t like something about their body it’s okay. But I want everyone to understand that I still promote self love and being comfortable in your own skin. But at the end of the day after all of my weight loss I wasn’t happy with that area of my body. My transformation has all been me hard work of sweat and tears, days of exhaustion at The Camp Transformation Center and there has been times I felt like giving up but I stayed focused and put in hours at the gym and fell in love with this new lifestyle as a cancer survivor. Seeing messages every day from people on my Instagram saying they are inspired from just me posting pictures and sharing my story is what makes me feel like I have found such a higher purpose in my life…and it’s all just social media which is crazy! Thank you again to everyone for all your love and support and happy #motivationmonday . Stay strong and take it one day at a time you guys can overcome any adversity you set your mind to.

A surgery I elected to have 

Today I will be undergoing a #breastaugmentation . I’ve been sitting here wondering how to post about today on my IG and blog and then I realized I just need to be real with you guys like I’ve always been. I decided to do this as an early Birthday present for myself. I am so thankful for when I am at with my health and after getting in shape this has been on my mind for a while! It’s crazy the day is already here! I’ve been very open and honest about it at the gym I work at and I’ve had such a positive experience! People are telling me that it’s nice to see me share that part of my journey because often people feel ashamed if they want to undergo a “boob job”. I spoke with all my doctors at the City Of Hope and they all cleared me and were happy for me actually! People ask me if I’m nervous but after undergoing so may surgeries and procedures for my health in the past, this one is the only one I’m excited about! I will keep you all update, and that you for the positive thoughts and vibes!! My road to recovery/fitness is going to be mentally challenging but another opportunity to grow and become stronger in other ways. I will be excited to share my journey back to my fitness level goals.
