Vegan Non soya Hazelnut Caramel Latte


*What keeps you motivated? (To do exercise or the diet)
the thought of not letting something beat me. i admit it is hard especially when you feel really hormonal and emotional but now i know that exercise and diet (no milk) works for me, i try extra hard to keep going. i have always been interested in fitness and i feel like while ever it helps me i will try to keep going! The no milk thing has been fairly easy - i substitute for Soya ( i know this does not work for everyone) I also limit my wheat intake - i have not been able to cut it out completely yet! 

*Can you give me one positive thing/thought that having endo has taught you that you didn't do before?
it has taught me that you are stronger than you think. even at your lowest point there is always some one worse off than yourself and you should be grateful for what you do have. i am so thankful every time i wake up after an op, even though i am in pain - at least you have woken up. Women are fighters.


*what is your go to thing that will make you instantly happy every single time you do/go to/have/are with it? 
a hot water bottle! and of course having a cup of tea (soya milk style!) 

*If you could give advise/motivation to a fellow endo sister what would it be?
Let endo define you - as a fighter not a victim.

Be the lawyer who has endo - not the endo sufferer who is a lawyer 
*One thing/person that is inspirational to you and why? 
All my endo sisters are a constant inspiration to me - some are further along this journey and others just starting but knowing what they are going through is an inspiration. 
(I will also say Beyonce! as she is my hero! she defines strength in women and belief in being yourself . )

*What is your favourite exercise to do that you find eases your endo pain? 
depending on how bad my pain is - normally i like body combat ( it helps relive a lot of stress and anger and also makes you feel strong) for that 1 hour you are a fighter. 

if my pain is bad i like yoga - this can help muscle spasms relax

i also like dancing just because it is fun and makes me feel "normal" 

*And finally have you a favourite endo friendly recipe you'd like to share that makes you feel great? 
i haven't tried any food recipes but i do like a Hazelnut Soya Latte :)
