Getting my thyroid under control
Sunday, November 18, 2012
I have been trying to get my thyroid condition under control for over a year with different medications and strengths. Along this journey, I have also gained 6.2 pounds which to some is not big deal, but when you worked your a$$ off to lose 72 pounds, this is something that didn't settle well.
After thinking I was just under everyday stress and not resting enough, I went and had more blood work done to find that my body is attacking my thyroid as an invader and my meds needed to change and increase in strength. Trial and error I guess.
The first time I have ever been glad to have bad news! My condition has a name....hashimoto disease.
This explains the joint pain, the muscle pain, the falling asleep in the middle of the day, the extreme fatugue after teaching my classes of TURBO KICK. And the weight gain. When you work hard, workout right, eat clean 80% of the time and continue to gain, you know something isn't right.
I am ready to continue my journey of moving forward, loosing some more weight and continue toning up.
New Year's, I have a challenge group starting and my workout of choice is going to be a TURBO FIRE/ChaLean Hybrid! Best of both worlds(strength and cardio).
