Work It Out Wednesday #5 | Being a lazy b*stard

Work It Out Wednesday #5 | Being a lazy b*stard
The last post I wrote in this series feels like it was forever ago, I was all motivated to get on with my 90 Day SSS Plan and was feeling like things could be starting to look up.

Fast forward a few months though and I'm now deep in the realisation that the thyroid issues I have are a bit more serious than I first thought and that it's going to take more time to get myself back to where I was even a year ago.  We're not talking dire in terms of the seriousness, but I'm still in a situation where no matter what exercise I do and what changes I make to my diet, my weight stays the same.  Another lovely side effect is that I'm bloody knackered all the time.

It's been an incredibly frustrating situation to be in; for the last year I've really prided myself on my active lifestyle, but getting nowhere has made me act like a right lazy b*stard for these last couple of months.

So what's changed, and why am I writing this series again?  Well for the simple reason that I don't want to start the festive season in a negative frame of mind and when the doctors and I do get my thyroid meds right and this god-awful tiredness lifts, I want to be doing everything I can to keep my metabolism up and to keep me in good health.

I think I remember reading somewhere that it takes 21 days to make a habit, so I figure if I can eat well and keep doing some light exercise every day for at least that period to begin with, I'll be in a good position again in a short while.  And who knows when I've got more energy I might be ready to start the 90 Day SSS Plan again (with a few tweaks since I'm now vegan).

Wish me luck!  Until next time...
