Still on this journey...

It's been a while since I've posted.....I'm still on this journey! It's just taking me down some roads along the way. I love my boot camp it's a guarantee ass kicking three times a week. I think I have done pretty good on the other days. I'm so sore and tired...feeling really defeated. Not getting the endorphin high from exercising like I should. Not feeling the boost in energy from all the changes in my life. In fact the last four months I have felt worse than ever before.

I don't think it's the exercise or changes in diet. But I feel like it's something else, something not right. You know when you need to listen to your body, it's that kind of feeling. I have been losing my hair in alarming amounts. Since I've had Katelyn 17 years ago, I have been thinning but this is bad. The last four months wow theres no hiding the bald spots. My only saving grace is I don't know a lot of people here and any future friends need to be under 5'4''!

Not only the hair loss but I'm so tired. I fall asleep fine but never have good nights sleep. I have been falling asleep during the day, little short naps. I have never been a napper...not since preschool! I get up early  and exercise and complete my daily chores or whatever needs to be done but one chore at a time leaves me exhausted.

I went to an Endocrinologist last week for blood work and have to come back next week for results. He thinks my Thyroid is fine but perhaps I'm in MENOPAUSE!! What did  he say.... but I'm only 40 45! At this point I just want to feel good and see the benefits of trying to live a healthier life style.

I guess there is more to this journey than simple exercise and diet....I hope I get answers next week.


  1. i'm so glad you went to your doctor! my first thought was thyroid.....
    i recommend going to a holistic doctor, talk about hormone replacement and all things related to menopause...really helped me!
    keep at it girl, things will get better...

  2. Keep in mind Kathy it takes serveral ingredients to make a cake. OK maybe that isn't the best example- How about it takes a good foundation to build a home? Or to make your car run it isn't just the gas that keeps it running it is the oil, air in the tires etc... Hang in there my friend. I'm happy it isn't anything serious. Dang I'm 5'4 1/2"!! xo
