Welcome to this week’s episode of Thyroid Strong where Maria Billis, a client of Thyroid Strong, joins me to share her journey with Hashimoto’s and how she found the missing piece in relieving her fatigue and boost her energy from incorporating the Thyroid Strong workouts into her daily routine.
Maria starts her journey the same way most of us do with Hashimoto’s, going back and forth with doctor after doctor trying to find the right answer. For Maria, though, her only symptom was fatigue and burnout in the early afternoon, not the typical weight gain and hair loss. Now, with Thyroid Strong she is optimizing her workouts to avoid burnout and she has more energy in the morning and throughout the day.
Hashimoto’s Before Finding Thyroid Strong
Maria suffered from waking up tired, and a 2pm burnout followed by an 8pm burnout. She lives a high intense lifestyle, both with stress and her workout routines. She did not pick up weights, instead, she delved into 45-minute to one-hour power yoga sessions. Each workout gave her more injuries, and tendonitis of the knees became the norm.
Working Out without Burning Out Leads to a Boost in your Overall Energy
Maria found Thyroid Strong and began incorporating weights in her workout routines, dialed it back to 20-30 minutes, and set aside her power yoga. She put a load on her tendons to heal them instead of trying to massage them out and with enough time for her body to fully recover, Maria became stronger. She feels energized, she moves better, and she now loves lifting weights.
