Here is the story of my "Man Crush Monday". A couple years back Jeff Hodges was sitting at a stop light when a lady (texting) slammed into the back of his brand new truck at full speed. The impact was so forceful that it bent the steel A-frame of his new truck and completely ruptured his right shoulder.
Just like that, in an instant, he lost his health and wealth. He needed surgery and was not able to perform the job he had been at over 10 years.
The reconstruction of his shoulder required three separate surgeries resulting in 15 total anchors holding the muscle to the bone.
6 from 1st, 5 from 2nd and 4 from 3rd, plus a tied bicep repair.
These were some very hard months feeding, dressing and bathing him. He was also disgnosed with ulterative colitis, very sick and got down to 136 pounds from not being able to properly absorb the nutrients from his food.
But we had each other and the will to make it through this stronger than we were before. Jeff began to use Plexus products to help him gain back internal health and strength to make it back into the gym. Well as you can see, not only did Plexus help him....it helped create the body you see today. Strong, healthy, muscular and off all prescription medications. We learned there are no excuses when you have God on your side, the right supplements, persistence and dedication. Prayer works!!!
I'm SO proud of you Jeff for the man you are to build back your body and also for starting a new installation company from the ground up. I can't wait to see you help others through your story of inspiration.

colitiscomeback So it's nearly been 8 weeks since I posted last I've had a complete change of job and lifestyle and have been all over the place, luckily I'm starting to settle again but my body hasn't been looked after as well as it was... Here's to September the 1st and getting my body back to a temple. Latest gym shot, doing my beloved chest pump 🏼🏼 #girlgains #girlswholift #chestday #gains #ulcerativecolitis #crohns #colitis #pump #shredding #abs #absnotflabs #macros #mealprep #smithmachine #fitness #eatingdisorder #recovery #cardio #fats #protein #carbs #healthyliving #happiness 3h

rhonda.vk Hey! So my husband @philvankleef and I run #ZombieMudRun #5K #ObstacleCourse marathon. We also raise money for #ibd research. Everyone gets "lifelines" during the run that the zombies can steal to "infect" you, but for a $10 donation you get an extra life line. 100% of the $10 goes right to the foundation. Obviously this charity is VERY near and dear to me as an Ulcerative Colitis survivor and permanent #ostomate . We are located in Niagara Falls, Canada. Check out our website www.zombiemudruncanada.com 4h

brianiif This just happened. First ice bath ever. Wasn't as enjoyable as a hot tub but apparently it will help me recover faster.

erin.rangner Cozy afternoon at the home office. A day off means lots of errands, and doing a little work building my own dreams :) This new month has me all kinds of excited to challenge myself in more ways. So, my current challenge group is going to participate in a 30 day happiness challenge, alongside our workouts. These groups are more about learning to love yourself from the inside out, so I am really stoked to try this. Are you in our group yet? If not, you should probably think about joining the party :) There's lots of love and hard work waiting for you <3 4h
