There are millions of “motivating” and “inspiring” blogs. Why would I start my own personal blog?
I am starting it for me….this is going to be my way of creating somewhere to store my journey , my thoughts and my opinions.
In August this year ( 2018) it will be 2 years since I was diagnosed with a Prolactinoma , click on that link to have a quick read of what a Prolactinoma is. The first 6 months after my diagnosis were hard , I thought the worst , I had to get used to the fact that I may have to take medication for the rest of my life and I was battling with the side effects of the medication ( Cabergoline).
The past year I have been in a bit of a black hole , I was struggling to get out of bed in the morning , I didn’t have motivation to do much else other than work , get home , eat , sleep. For anyone that knows me , I have always been a bubbly and energetic person , however for the past year I hadn’t been inside even if it still seemed like on the outside , you see , you just never know what someone may be feeling or going through.
20kgs heavier then the year before made me feel even more grotty , I wasn’t looking after my body , I stopped getting my nails done , I stopped getting facials , I stopped having “me” time because I didn’t feel like I deserved it….I gave up on looking after myself. Having a supportive Fiancee has been amazing and I am so damn lucky to have him , he never ever judged me , he never ever tried to force me to change , he just stood by me and he was there when I had my bad days.
3 months ago , I had enough. I had enough of struggling to wake up , I had enough of my brain not being able to think clearly and I had enough of feeling crap. So I decided what better way to challenge myself then to join a Crossfit box? I googled and found a local Crossfit box only a short 15min drive from my home , so I instantly messaged one of the owners and went along to my trial session a few days later.
I will cover more on my first Session in my next blog post , however all I am going to leave you with is it has changed my life.
If you want to read about my journey , and how crossfit has and still is changed/changing my life then follow along and I look forward to having you right here beside me.
