Barbells, Food and Jojo

Join me as I navigate through my love for Olympic Weightlifting, Flexible Dieting and Life

I’m really frustrated, annoyed, sad, angry and tired of always being fucking tired, sick and my metabolism sucking balls because of all the above.

I try to keep a happy, positive outlook that this will all work out and that I’ll figure out what is raging against my body and immune system. But it seems as time passes it’s all just getting even worse.

Let’s put this into perspective. In the last couple months or so, I have been sick with a cold roughly five times (maybe more, I’m losing count) with different strains varying from bad cough (lost my voice), sore throat, sneezing, or congested – but sometimes when my immune system really feels like being a royal bitch, all of the above.

This all began roughly 9 months ago now with the frustration of low energy and not being able to get leaner despite my hardest efforts in clean eating, exercise and rest. But now, getting sick as often as I am these days, I know that even back then it was probably the beginning stages of my immune system nose diving. It was probably my body holding onto any nutrition that it could to fight whatever is attacking it. But (I’m assuming) it could only fight so much before the wall began to get broken down. And here I am.

Believe me, I have (as previously mentioned in this blog) had blood work done for all ailments that can cause fatigue in addition to food and allergy testing (via blood) and everything came back normal. I have also gone through months of acupuncture to no avail.

I have researched online like a mad woman. To this day, my symptoms seems to correlate the most with either me being exposed (and allegedly allergic) to mold/mildew OR there being yeast/fungus in my system. The latter can really only be tested by poop testing (UGH) and the mold allergy can be tested more accurately via skin testing (which I am going in for this week).

Think of it this way – how would you feel if you were eating clean with little to no cheat meals, exercising 4-5 times a week and getting enough sleep and you saw absolutely no results both physically and mentally? And to top that off you get a cold (or cold symptoms) pretty much every couple weeks? Let’s not forget that you’re always pretty damn tired? That you felt like you could always go for a nap? Fun? Not. One. Bit. I honestly wouldn’t wish this upon my worse enemy if I had one.

And, end rant. If anyone cared to read alllll the way through this downer of a post, kudos to you and thank you.
