These past few days, as Lori is refocusing with her new game plan for her skin and hormones, we have been discussing what to do about our workouts. We have not really worked out since getting JAX 🙂
I, just like Lori, feel my hormones are a mess. As I go for months and months without a period. I did see my GYNO a few weeks ago. As she was looking at my blood work (from a year ago) and listening to me, she told me it was not my body fat that was causing me not to get my period and felt no further tests need to be done. She gave me no reason why this is happening! Just prescribed me progesterone pills (that I did take for 10 days as prescribed by my doctor). I did get my period, but then the following month nothing.
I know Lori and I are not the only ones dealing with hormone imbalance, missing periods, as many of our blog friends have talked about their issues too. Plus we get emails of other girls saying they are having issues with their periods and hormones as well. All I can say – this is CRAZY!! Crazy how so many girls are suffering from messed up hormones.
Anyways, I was writing here today not to talk about hormones, but more about Lori and I’s new fitness goals for the summer.
Summer Fitness Goals:
- 5 minute plank workout (we will have a video soon of what we do)
- 10 + pull-ups on our equalizer (trying to improve our posture)
- go on walks outside more
- yoga 2-3 times a week ( hopefully get up to 4 times a week of just straight yoga)
- light lifting and body weight exercises (more Physique and Tone It Up like workouts)
Both of us are going to take this coming week off from HIIT workouts. And then just do it once a week, mainly cause we mentally love them and they are good for the heart!
Lori and I feel these new steps forward in our fitness goals should help get our hormones back to balance. We will both continue eating a clean diet and take our supplements. Both of us are feeling good with our decision and appreciate you all sharing your stories and tips with us!! And for those of you that have asked us what to do to help with hormones, take a step back. Re-evaluate your lifestyle. Find where you feel you could make a change. Either change up your workouts, add a new supplement in that you might be lacking, do daily meditations…take a step back and look at the bigger picture. Change can be hard, but also very good!
