Be-You-Tifully Fit: Weirdness.

wpid-20150307_114040.jpgIf you had been following things with me on a health side, I'm in a stand still.  I did find out that I have/had (still don't know much about it) Hashimoto's disease.  Been trying my best to keep my vitamin levels up and eat well.  I need to do everything necessary to stay afloat and healthy.  The strangest adjustment is trying to learn to run with numb toes/feet as well as dealing with numbness in my hands as well.  Both doctors I've seen say that I'm okay to keep on because besides everything going on...I'm in perfect health.  Such a weird statement.  You have an autoimmune disease and numbness but other than that, you're in perfect health.

wpid-img_20150311_190533.jpgOh well.  Other than that...I don't have much else to say as of late.  Training has consisted of the treadmill with the windows open.  I occasionally get outside but it's the combination that life has thrown at me.  Just trying to get through the big day and not freak out with the taper crazies.
