We went for a delightful drive up in the mountains on Wednesday to see the fall colours. So very pretty and we had a wonderful time wandering around a wildlife area. Took a bunch of lovely pictures and DH took one of me and the kids that actually looks ok to me. I am not into having my picture taken needless to say.
I have been doing some reading up about hypothyroidism. Some interesting reading out there. I have been thinking about my experience on Primal VLC. I started out feeling great and lost 48 pounds. Then all of a sudden I started gaining weight back for no obvious reason and am 'stuck' at about 204 - 208 lbs and feeling awful. I think the VLC pushed the hypothyroidism into a worse state. I am realizing that the VLC was making me feel awful and am feeling much improved since increasing my carb intake. I am sleeping much better now. I have also started using earplugs at night and it is helping so much with waking up for the tiniest sound. Now that DS is a little older I don't feel that I need to have one ear tuned at night. He is old enough to come through to our room if he needs me. I have an appointment to see the ND on Monday afternoon again and am hoping to get more help with my situation.
I have been thoroughly enjoying going to the private training sessions - very good. Only thing is I just don't have a space to do the majority of the exercises. Our house is just too tiny and our yard is so spiky with weeds. The other problem is that I have no energy to get going. I have my last session next week and then we can't really afford for me to keep going Maybe I can figure out a way to get a few sessions from time to time. I have ordered a canvas tarp so that I can lay it out in the backyard and workout there when the weather is ok. The exercises are really fun and I can feel that they are helping me in some areas. I did find that I was a bit off with one of the exercises the other day and my back felt a touch strained. Must be careful to keep everything lined up as he has taught me.
Potroast and veg and sweet potato fries for dinner.
