I’ve successfully done 100 squats a days since May 27th and honestly without partner in crime Jen from Pretty n’ Paleo battling it out right beside me, I may have quit. It’s also even more inspiring to me that Jen is 7 months pregnant ya’ll. No joke. I couldn’t even walk a quarter of a mile when I was pregnant. I tried and was miserable. So that this strong woman is doing this every day is incredible to me.
The third day of the challenge, I was so sore but I pushed through it and Mr. Bejelly has reported that my butt is looking better, lol. I can see a difference too and another thing that I love about this workout is that it’s just small amounts of effort throughout the day so I can fit it in. I was failing at trying to schedule an hour to work out and that constant failure was just another reason why I couldn’t lose weight.
I also had my annual visit with my doctor and ran a bunch of blood work. My fasting blood sugar was 70. My total cholesterol was 195 (LDL 107, HDL 75, Triglycerides 75) and my thyroid is 100% normal. Yeah, I was thinking my thyroid was going wonky again like it did post-pregnancy. By the way, postpartum thyroid issues are very common and I was able to treat mine using a thyroid supplement and I did also use Lugol’s in conjunction.
This lead to much discussion with my doctor about my adrenals and after more blood work, I have some minor adrenal issues. I’m taking this adrenal support supplement and I can see some small success with it. I’m taking it for a month and a half and I’ll report how it’s working.
I’m excited to finally be on the right track and I’m hoping to get to my goal by my birthday!
Also, Heather, I didn’t forget about you. Are you still in the challenge?
