Hi guys, sorry I have been little MIA, posting only here and there, and not really checking on anybody. I have been super busy working & living.
This is what is new & what has been happening:
- I am feeling super fantastic/accomplished after completing my Yoga challenge
- I have also been dealing with major joint pain for the longest time, my weight was not been coming off as much or not at all, no matter what I was doing with my diet and exercise and my PMS/periods have gotten super wacky and unbearably painful. I finally ditched my old useless PCP and found a new wonderful doctor and I finally got answers as to why.
I have been living with Hashimoto’s Thyroditis (autoimmune disease, where your body attacks your thyroid - here for more info) for years and I have been treated since 2007 with a Thyroid hormone replacement.
My new doctor just found out that my levels are super low and increased my dosage. Even after taking this higher dose for only few days I feel like a new person. My joint pain is disappearing and I am yet to see what happens during shark week :-) My energy is through the roof, and I am ready to get back to the swing of things and shake up my routine a bit.
I have already switched from “full time Yoga” to this:
- Body Rock 3x week
- Yoga 2x week
- rest days 2x week
As far as my “diet”, this is the new plan:
Beginning April 1st, I am starting IF (Intermittent Fasting) on a schedule of 16/8 with eating window either 12-8, or 1-9 depending on a day.
The benefits of IF are amazing, for more info click here.
I am very confident that with my new thyroid meds dosage, eating at a small deficit (NET at least 1500/day), BodyRocking and IF will bring my fitness level and my body to a completely new dimension.
If you made it this far reading, THANK YOU :-) for your support!
I will slowly be coming back to the Tumblr world and check on all of you!
Love & Light!
