{Summer #BlogChallenge} Day 16

Fitness guru or couch potato? Talk about your fitness habits.

Well, let’s just say that I am a fitness enthusiast! My mom would say that I am a couch potato, but then again she doesn’t understand the importance of writing reviews, and entering giveaways :] During the day I do my motherly chores, washing/folding clothes, washing dishes, cleaning, school, etc. Which in my book should be counted as exercise.

In order to tell you about my fitness habits, I first need to tell you about me. I have been diagnosed by a medical doctor, with hypothyroidism and PCOS. Basically it means that instead of my body using insulin like it is suppose to, it just stores it into my fat. I was sent to a Endocrinologist to see what I could do, and they told me that no matter what I do that I would never be able to lose any weight. I tried for years to do different “diets”, but nothing seemed to work I would lose a little and then gain it back.

A friend of mine started going to this nutritionist and was having really good results. I decided to give it a go and two years later I am still going! She focuses not on weight loss, but on total body healing. I was in really bad shape before I started going and now I am a completely different person. Along with God’s miraculous help she has helped me to overcome my PCOS {poly cystic ovarian syndrome}, and now has given me a clear shot of my future with kids. I lost 20 lbs at first and that put me around 250, but I was basically starving myself, and that wasn’t healthy. She gave me the go ahead to start exercising now, and I started a little, but with school, I struggle to find time.

I do follow a strategic diet plan, where basically I do not eat any wheat or sugar, and stick to the whole foods. I admit that I do struggle at times, but I am still healthy, and if I am meant to be the size, then oh well, that’s me and I love me :]
