A forever journey of health

I am ready to find the energy to get motivated about getting healthy. I have hypothyroidism and it causes continual issues with my weight & energy.

I love cooking and I'm really good at it - healthy and non- healthy.

I am married & have 3 beautiful daughters, 24, 21 & 16. My oldest daughter has two children - 5 yr old grandson & 2 yr old granddaughter. I love spending time with family and wish I could infect them with my love for exercise. ;)

Update - after a year and a half of doing NOTHING - no exercise or diet plan, I am hitting the renew button. I officially started hormone therapy as of June 2011 after seeing some shocking deficiencies in recent bloodwork. I am also switching to a natural thyroid treatment. I am hopeful and excited to start this new chapter of health and wholeness. I have also started zumba and am back into sand volleyball and walking. I look forward to many more positive updates.

Update - I have been on the hormones & natural thyroid treatment for almost 6 months and WOW, what a difference. I have increased energy, motivation & memory! Going to zumba, hiking, playing volleyball and enjoying spending time with friends & family. I am loving this. Now, to work on the weight...

Update - as of January 2012 I changed my eating habits...for good...forever! I am also totally addicted to exercise of all sorts. I have my favorites for sure, but God is teaching me to try new things to learn more about my body. I have lost 25 lbs in 5 months...for good...forever! Can't wait to see what the rest of the year holds for all of us. So grateful!!!

Update - one year after changing my lifestyle I have released 50 lbs...for good...forever! There's no looking back now. I have made some new goals for 2013 and love having a body that craves activity. Watch out world! I am 45 and in the best shape of my life!

Update - have removed the hormone therapy & trying clean eating to heal thyroid issues. Have lost 70 lbs.

Update - I have food sensitivities!!! See 6/3/14 blog entry. Life changer!!!
