Wogging My Way To a Healthier Me

Happy Birthday to Me!

Today is my 33rd birthday, and I will be celebrating with a gluten free cupcake and a personal training session. Birthdays have been full of disappointment in my life, I always seem to have cotton candy dreams of what they will be, but this year I’ve tries to be realistic. The result? I’ve felt very relaxed and at peace (maybe the noontime margarita helped?) Tonight O had dinner with my family, and my husband went out of his way to get special gluten free cupcakes. I blessed and having a great workout is my idea of a great present to myself. Looking forward to what 33 holds!

A very merry unbirthday to everyone!!

Finding Hope the Natural Way

During my appointment with the naturopath, it was the first time I was listened to. She actually got upset when she heard how other doctors had treated me. She spend TWO HOURS going over my medical history. I think the last time I spent 2 hours with a doctor, I was in surgery. It was amazing to have her listen and take notes, going over everything she could imagine. Then stopping and saying, “Well first off, you’re not just meant to be fat. It sounds like your poor body is exhausted.”

After some discussion she suspected adrenal fatigue and low cortisol  levels are wreaking havoc on my body. I had extensive testing done, blood, urine, and saliva, that verified I was very far down that road of adrenal fatigue, with my cortisol levels on empty and my thyroid conserving every last calorie I am ingesting.

What now?! A lot more changes than I expected, including throttling my exercise way back, gluten free, dairy free… It’s like all my favorite things are being taken to make me feel better. I am OVERWHELMED, and it all makes me wanna take a nap. Which I hear is a natural response to having adrenal fatigue, maybe I’ll just curl up in a sunbeam and nap like that lil kitten.

I know I have a long road ahead of me, and I will share, because I am sure there are others out there who have been told they’re not doing enough, when they’re doing TOO MUCH!

Where if your favorite place to nap?
