I tried something new
I tried eating more calories according to the MFP recommendations. LOL HAHA JK didn’t work. We all know why. Say it with me. Thyroid. Seems like I need to go back to my old caloric range.
This week my joints feel good enough to bike again and I did this morning. Last week I really needed to give them a break and I started a little slow today. I don’t want to intentionally hurt myself over this but am about to go for a little walk to the grocery store and I’m back in the pool tonight.
Also, I had been told that iodine is bad for your thyroid. I know that radioactive iodine is used for people with Grave’s Disease and can be terrible for you if you have hypothyroid problems like me. But what about regular iodine? It’s supposed to be key in maintaining a healthy weight. Anyone out there know more about this? I’ve heard both sides, yes you should have iodine and no you shouldn’t because it could make things worse, and it just sounds like a crapshoot. I’ve been on the side of caution, I guess you could say, and have avoided iodine for the most part (I use non-iodinized salt, for example). Now I’m starting to wonder if I actually should be paying more attention to it.
