30 Day Hybrid Training Challenge 

So tomorrow starts my 30 day challenge with my gym (where I do crossfit). We had to give a reason why we are starting the challenge and this is mine. 
I have severe allergies and have immunodeficiency. I have had very poor health and have been on steroids which have caused weight gain and physical discomfort.I have been working really hard with my nutritionist to lose weight but I face almost daily challenges with my illnesses. I frequently end up in hospital… tonsillitis for your average person is very uncomfortable and can mean that you’re unwell for a week.. I spend time in hospital and then am dosed up on steroids for weeks and sometimes months. Every infection usually leads to some other infection and some other mishap. This is a part of my life that I have little control over. I’ve joined up to help combat the feelings associated with chronic illness. It would be so easy to say that ‘it’s too hard’, or blame the steroids for my weight issues, or just give up. But that’s not in my nature. I want to stay motivated and interested and inspired. I want to shed the extra weight that I’m carrying so that my immune system has the best possible chance this winter. It might take me longer to drop the weight due to my obstacles but I know with the added support of this community I’ll have a secret weapon against the ‘it’s too hard’ thoughts.
