Hi there. You may have noticed that some new photos were uploaded to my page. As the old saying goes...pay no attention to that man behind the curtain. Yeah, they're here, and yeah, they're current, but that in no means means that I have to like them...Personally, I would like to forget that they exist. Guess that means that I need to get my butt in gear and change them, huh? As some of you may have read/followed, this year has been interesting so far to say the least. I was diagnosed as severely hyperthyroid in February, diagnosed with seriously badly behaving thyroid nodules in February/March and then had the Radioactive Iodine Treatment on March 30th. The next two months were quite interesting. Days when I could barely pull myself out of bed and function, other days when I had a little too much energy. Days when I just wanted to break things...thank goodness no days that all I wanted to do was cry. And, of course on top of all of this, a scale that couldn't decide which direction it wanted to move...and an appetite to match. I have noticed that my current issue revolves around carbohydrates, and I am hoping that this is just a phase like the "breaking things" phase. I started taking Synthroid on May 25th, so it's really only been about a week, and I don't know what all is going to happen while we are trying to get this dialed in, but I cannot allow the stupid scale to continue in the direction it has been moving (that being up). I signed up for a body transformation challenge today as a little extra incentive to get my act (and my butt) in gear and get this back under control. So, I now have 98 days to make some serious changes, hopefully see some serious results, and maybe manage to get myself on a beach in Maui. So time to get thinking about program development and meal plan design...guess I better get busy!!
