My name is Heather Bailey and I live in Knoxville, TN with my husband and young son.
I am on a health and fitness journey to help bring awareness to how clean eating and exercise can help heal your body. My health issues began in 2010 after finding a lump on my thyroid, began noticing steady weight gain, and dealing with increasing anxiety. I spent years going from doctor to doctor with no answers and more issues with thyroid. My goiter and nodules on my thyroid would go up and down in size and still no one could tell me what was wrong. After the birth of our son in 2014 things became increasingly harder on me and I noticed the issues became more severe after weaning him in 2015. I struggled for answers, but kept searching for something that would help me recover from these issues. Then in the fall of 2015 I found the autoimmune Paleo diet and start seeing immediate success in my issues and overall health. Also, in September 2015 I received a diagnosis of Hashimoto’s thyroiditis as the cause of my thyroid issues.
Through my dietary changes, a good exercise regimen, and the correct medication I am helping to reverse my Hashimoto’s. As of the start of 2016 I am down over 65 pounds and feeling much healthier than I have in years. I am now an online health and fitness coach who wants to pay if forward and help you on your journey to healing your health issues and concerns with what I have learned so far. I can help you pick out a workout and eating plan that will get you on the right path to a healthy new you. Through this blog I will share recipes, tips, and workouts that can help you along on your journey to being fit.
