Time to unleash the dragon

The year 2012 is supposed to be the year of the dragon, so I think it's time that I unleash my inner dragon.  I don't know exactly what that entails but I do know that it means it's time for me to take one some more adventures and challenges.       I didn't make any new years resolutions mainly because I didnt' really think about it and a lot of the goals I have in mind are similar to what I am already working on.    I am going to list them out again so that maybe it will get me  back on track.    I do have many challenges that I would like to complete though so I guess that's my resolution to set some goals and complete them.      Here are some of the goals I would like to complete: 1) lose weight ( this is a tough one for me I start off strong and then get very side tracked.)  2) More running, now that my TSH levels seem to be up and running it's time for me to do what works and that involves running, 3) Exercise, Exercise, Exercise, 4) Get my bike checked so I can do more cycling, 5) enroll in a golf class, I have been wanting to take a golf class for a long time so I think it's time I really try one out, 6)be better about my overall nutrition and stop eating out so much, 7) continue to find adventures to I know will be challenging but will be well worth it.         

On that note I am going to challenge myself today by making sure I do some sort of exercise I am not sure if I will have time to train for my hot chocolate run today, but I am going to do my best to either do some exercise on the Wii, or do a walking DVD.        Does anyone have any fun challenges they are up to for the year 2012????    


  1. im training for my half marathon! im so excited that your levels have been normal and you can run...mine has been a little wonky but i changed my levels and hopinh it gets better! Happy new year and your resolutions are awesome!

  2. Wow I am very proud of you for training for a half marathon!!! It takes hard work and dedication but you will feel so accomplished. Thanks I am happy my TSH is normal, my PTH is still off but the doctor really feels it's my body adjusting to being low on vitamin d or so long.
    I am excited to try to run more consistently of course today I go distracted with watching football so I am going to do a quick walking DVD.

  3. I just found your blog through Team Pancakes and I wanted to pop over to say hello! I noticed the title of your blog because I had a hemi-thyroidectomy two (almost three) years ago, and my mom has Hashimotos disease as well. I was lucky after my surgery that the remaining half of my thyroid is compensating for the other half, but I'll definitely have to monitor it for the rest of my life!

    I love that you've created a blog to document your journey!

  4. Hi Lauryn,

    Thanks for stopping by!!! I wish you the best in having your thyroid monitored. Before I had my thryoid removed I had kind of hoped that they would be able to leave in one half, but both halves had nodules and they decided it was best to take both out. I am glad to hear that the half that is remaining is compensatating for the missing half!!! There are so many of us out there with thyroid issues.
