Since being diagnosed with Hashimoto's disease, I have been in this silly downward "I give up" spiral. "Why work out, it won't matter, anyway? It's not like I can lose weight until my thyroid is regulated." That's basically what I've been saying, but I am done with that! I have fought my way through things way worse than a little underactive thyroid. I can do this and I will do this!
From here on out, I am going to focus on exercising and eating better because it makes me feel better, not because I want to lose weight (but, oh, do I!) That way, hopefully the number on the scale begins to mean less and less to me.
I did Turbo Jam Punch, Kick, and Jab today for the first time. It was about 50 minutes long and I burned 587 calories according to my heart rate monitor. I felt great about that! I am in the process of kicking a sinus infection and a nasty case of pink eye as well, so it's been a minute since I've done Turbo Jam. I am back in the game now, though!
