I miss it so much. I seriously think about it every single time I work out. Sometimes for the whole class :/

Missed this. Nina (with the Coolie Rue) and I are doing it together but I haven't decided yet if I'm taking Didgie or Traveler. One of the obstacles you have to carry your dog across which I can do easily with both of them but I'm trying to figure out who's going to handle the crazy that will be their with the least amount of noise

Completed week one of C25K! I didn't cheat any of the days, no stopping early or walking farther but today went so much better than the first day. I felt my form was way better, my breathing much better and my legs weren't nearly as tired. I even went an extra minute and half of running because I didn't think it was over when it was and finally checked to see why the timer wasn't going off.

Also going to be on day 7 of the 30 Day Shred video I'm doing. I've been doing it ever other day since I'm doing C25K too but it's getting easier and harder because I've gotten better and faster at all the stuff but because of that I'm pushing myself harder. So that's good! I've noticed though really focusing on my breathing during it is helping with my running.

Yeah thanks so much for the video Beanie! Awesome. Will start with that when I get home.

I'm having such a hard time staying on track with eating.

Ran twice this week! Getting back into the swing of things. I need to workout more frequently than just running... but so time consuming.

I twisted my ankle really bad two days ago, stepped in a hole in the yard.
This is what it looked like yesterday (and while I have lots of fat in lots of places, I don't actually have very fat feet/ankles, that's ALLLLL swelling)

It's getting better, but I miss the gym I miss my 2 mile runs, and now I'm not sure how to get back to it. I'm going to buy a brace, but I'm so worried I'm going to twist it again! It makes me sad

The good news is that most thyroid issues are 100% treatable with meds, and once you get your thyroid levels back the way they are supposed to be, your whole life will suddenly be a lot better (depending on what issues you're having, anyway!)
So I wouldn't be too anxious about it. If it turns out you have thyroid issues, you'll get the meds figured out and it will be better. If it's not that, then you know for sure and can proceed with other options having thyroid issues ruled out.
I have low thyroid (right under the low normal), but I also have a vitamin D3 deficiency (rare here, and I'm pretty much a poster child for skin cancer...that's how much I'm outside).

If it helps, I also have PCOS and am IR.

I've drastically changed the way I eat. Limiting carbs was much we easier than I thought because I cut them out drastically from the start, and it was then I realized just how sick I was getting from eatin lots of pasta, breads, cereal, etc. the thing is with PCOS and being IR, I actually get the most horrid cravings for something sweet (cookies) or for carbs. If I indulge, I pay the price, and it's a good reminder why I don't do that anymore. LOL

But despite everything I've been diagnosed with and all that I've been through, it wasn't until I scrounged away for the mental strength to stop making excuses and just do it that I began to change. I started out barely being able to do a moderate 20 minutes on the recumbent bike to being able to do a brisk 30-minute fat burn program with "sprint" intervals (has varying resistance levels) followed by a T25/Hip Hop Abs/Rockin' Body workout, along with doing all my outside chores (scooping horse manure out of a 2+ acre pasture, hauling water buckets! etching.).

I've lost 50 lbs now, but I'm telling you that I've had to fight for every single one of them. It's amazing how quickly I can gain weight and how slow it is for me to lose it, but I don't wallow in excuses anymore. I remind myself that time will pass whether I fight to lose weight or feel sorry for myself and binge eat, so each day is a new day with new decisions to make. I have a habit of mentally punishing myself for a "bad" day, but I'm getting better about moving on and not thinking about it. Better to have lost 5 lbs at the end of a year than none (or worse, gain, which is what I did in the latter half of last year).
The Hokey Pokey. That's what it's all about.
