I know sometimes my eats get boring to blog about everyday, but I still love recording it online. So, I’m going to start putting it all on instagram for a food diary and blogging about what I want here. I’m RunEatRepeat (bet you never would have guessed) on Instagram so follow along if you want
After the most delicious Chipolte dinner I went home and went on a closet cleaning rampage. Remember how I turned my hangers around for a 6 month Closet Clean Out? Well, I finally threw out everything I haven’t worn (save for a few special occasion dresses).
Ben hung out for moral support. I got this shirt at Blogher last year from Stonyfield and had him put it on for a photo op.
This morning I ran 6.63 miles. Random. I wasn’t feeling like running much today but am glad I pushed it to that much.
Thyroid Health Update
Almost exactly one year ago I found out my T3 thyroid is low. My doc put me on a T3 prescription, but that didn’t really make me feel any different.
Since then I haven’t felt any better and before that I had been doing really well with losing weight and was down about 7 pounds. In the last year I have been gaining and more cold and tired than I should be.
So, I have an appointment with a specialist in October. But I was very frustrated a few weeks ago and started doing research on natural thyroid remedies and food choices.
I found a lot of random rants, e-books you can purchase and general information – but nothing from a resource I trusted. Then, I came across Jill Grunewald, holistic nutrition coach with Healthful Elements. She had some great information on thyroid health and nutrition.
I read her about page and it turns out she was diagnosed with adrenal fatigue, hypothyroidism, and Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and is managing it with holistic and natural options.
I immediately emailed her and asked for help. Luckily, she offers health coaching and after a consultation we set up our first phone appointment.
I spoke with her yesterday and she sent me a ton of great resources. It turns out a bunch of foods I thought were “healthy” are the exact opposite of what I should be eating! There are many foods that interfere with your thyroid (like raw cabbage) that I eat in mass quantities. #Fail
I’m only at the very start of learning exactly how/why my thyroid is off and how I can help it naturally, but I’m excited and finally hopeful.
For now I’m supposed to do a hormone dump (I think that’s what she called it) and take an adrenal health test. I’ll update as I learn and try things.
