Adrenal Fatigue

My First-Ever Unassisted Pull-up

Posted by Miss Lizzy

Determined? Yep. I reached a really exciting milestone yesterday. After a year of doing CrossFit (perhaps the hardest workout on the planet) 3-5 days a week for over a year… I did my very first unassisted pull-up. Hanging from the bar, full dead-weight, unassisted pull-up. OMG so exciting. And here are the words that went through my head: “I WANT IT!!

I think this is the single most powerful phrase in my life. Until that moment, I only kind-of wanted it. But when I made the choice to really want it – like in big bold, capital letters kind of want it — everything came together. And I did it!

Of course, it was a combination of determination and many many hours of effort to become strong enough. But that’s what the thyroid journey has been for me. Staying determined to persevere through the hardest of times. Effort and intention. So I hope this inspires you to keep your high spirits, celebrate every milestone (especially the small ones like this), and stay determined.

When you come to an obstacle, whatever it is, remember to make choice and say: “I WANT IT!!” Hopefully your whole mindset changes.  And hopefully it will make you really happy.

PS – This is Crossfit. Yep I climb ropes and lift big barbells. Ten years ago I could never have done this 🙂 BUT, if you have untreated adrenal fatigue and untreated thyroid wait until your body is strong before trying this kind of workout. And of course consult a good doctor.

    I love reading your posts!! I am a boxer, I love the gym. My hypothyroid has held me back for manye years. I have always struggled with weight.

    It never made any sense to me. I was never an unhealthy person. My mum brought us up on a clean healthy diet. & I was always active growing up. I’ve truly never felt like my body belonged to me!
    I would love to spend my days back in the gym training for boxing tournaments!
    I just worry that my exercise will work against me like it usually does. I start off feeling excellent then I suddenly gain weight and feel dreadful. I dont like to say this but I gain fat and look totally awful.
    I can’t keep up the consistency. I feel like a failure.
    When were you able to exercise again after taking natural thyroid? Did it take a few months?

    I have been on Biothroid (natural) for 7 months . I’ve only recently been upped to two tablets a day. It made me feel great for a few weeks. I lost weight. So I started properly exercising again. Then it all just suddenly turned terrible. Out of the blue ;,(

    What is the benefit of using iodine?

    According to healthyonline.com, the thyroid (located at the frontal base of the neck) is the key gland that furnishes energy to every cell in the body. Its function is dependent on a balance of nutrients and trace minerals. These include zinc, copper, manganese and especially iodine.

    Iodine is an essential nutrient needed for the production of the body's thyroid hormones and is therefore required for normal thyroid function. Thyroid hormones are responsible for our basal metabolic rate (BMR), which reflects the body's use of energy. In addition, they are beneficial for:

    • Normal growth and development
    • Protein synthesis
    • Cholesterol synthesis
    • Carbohydrate absorption
    • Energy metabolism
    • Nerve and bone formation
    • Reproduction
    • The condition of the skin, hair, nails and teeth
    • Speech and mental state
    • Cold hands and feet
