As I may or may not have mentioned on here before, I suffer from Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, a form of hypothyroidism. It really sucks because it slows your metabolism waayy down, causing you to gain weight. It also makes you feel utterly exhausted all the time. I could seriously have slept for 15 to 20 hours everyday. Before I got on medicine. It took me a while to get a doctor to even diagnose me, then give me proper treatment for it, and now it finally seems that I have found the proper dosage to stay at for a while. Which means hopefully I will start seeing results when I work out instead of gaining 12 pounds in 6 months, like my second to last visit went. This past visit went much better, seeing as how my weight held steady (with little to no exercise).
Now if I could just officially shake this cough. It gets less and less everyday, and I do plan on starting up again with my working out and running soon. Very soon. My goal this month is to lose 10 pounds, which may seem far-fetched, but I’m hoping since I have been eating better, and now the combination of working out regularly, I can make it. I’m just over it all and ready to not be asked when my baby is due or do I know what I’m having. Also-shorts, here I come.
I don’t know why I feel comfortable talking about this on here with a bunch of internet strangers, and not letting my IRL friends know about my goal. Maybe because I’m afraid they will most likely make fun of me for it? Or I think they will make fun of me for it? It’s hard to say.
I’m hoping as well that it doesn’t start raining on my way home tonight. Even though it’s getting awfully cloudy outside. And it’s fairly windy as well, but moderately warm. I can’t wait for tax season to be over with and for day light savings time to end so it stays lighter longer outside and I can BE outside and run after work, instead of getting stuck on a stuffy old treadmill.
