This is me after climbing the side of a cliff dwelling in Mesa Verde.

That's me on the left. On the one hand, I am proud of myself when I look at this photo, because I had just climbed up STEEP ladders on the side of a cliff dwelling and crawled through a tunnel. I was scared as can be, but I overcame it and did it!

On the other hand, it is a reminder that I am not where I want to be. I would NEVER post this photo on Facebook or on my regular blog for fear of judgement. I put it here because this is a place where I can show my real self in hopes that it will motivate me to do better.

I'm starting again. I hope I can do it!

Last summer I was at a much better place. When I started back to teaching full-time, I was at a good place and was taking care of my body. But work and stress and moving and EXCUSES happened and here I am again.

I hope I can really do it this time. I did it once (see photo under the one on the left), I can do it again!!!

My Program:
I'm going to be starting up at the gym again. I need to build up my endurance in cardio. I go to Crossfit 1-2 times a week and will be seeing a personal trainer again soon.

Make better food choices and plan meals.

Get in my protein, calcium, fiber, fruits, veggies, and water water water!

Try to cut back on junk food, but allow myself treats, and don't beat myself up if I slip. Move on!! (Maybe the treats is my problem....)

    I have no Thyroid and Diabetes 2. I've tried WW and it's just too hard since they dont offer a Diabetes Program. But, I have been doing great with low carb high protein and lots of veges of all colors. It works for me. You can do this 👍

    Hi! I just joined the hypothyroid team and noticed your name on the team. As I read your comments, I recognize much of what I have gone through! Although you are much younger than I am :-) I started weight watchers over 3 years ago. it worked for a while. But what I found that, with our condition, a lower carb, no sugar way of life seems to work a little better. Have you tried a low carb way of eating yet? I say low carb, but how I do it is lean protien, lots and lots of green veggies and some fruits and berries. Hope this helps! Hang in there...
