Here we go.

 

 

Happy New Year Everyone! New year, new blog. Seems fitting, right?

 

Image2012 was a pretty darn good year. I made many new friends. I became a Crossfit fanatic and a Paleo enthusiast [read: freak]. I love my job as a Neonatal ICU Nurse. I have developed a strong sense of self, and love the world I have created around me. 

I can’t say I am too spoiled, my Hashimoto’s is at its worst since I was diagnosed 5 years ago. I transitioned from Vegan [yikes] to Paleo in the fall of 2011. This past year, I got serious with it. It’s amazing how sick and shitty you can be, and food can make you feel better. It seems like a no brainer, right? So, this blog will follow me continuing on my journey to health. Or just my random ramblings. Or just my creative outlet with some Paleo recipes and drool-worthy photos. Thanks for reading!

Conquered DisneyWorld, for the 1st time. They’re building my castle next.
Hashimoto’s came back with a vengence.

I felt horrible this entire month, waiting for my thyroid medication to kick in!

Started Crossfit, became addicted. Started to feel like a normal person again.

Was crossfitting 3-4x/week and was starting to feel amazing.

a little non-paleo indulgence, but it was tequila!

a whole lot of crossfitting and clean eating.

Still battling the Hashimoto Monster, but had a fabulous holiday season with my family and friends.

 

And here we are: Janurary 2013. I’m waiting for my thyroid meds to kick in, starting to work dayshift (hopefully that helps my thyroid), starting to Crossfit regularly again [and hitting incredible olympic lifting PRs!], sticking to Paleo and starting a Whole30 challenge soon. A new blog, with updates, recipes and maybe a face lift soon. Letsdothis.
