Cyster Talk: 10 Tips to Beat the Funky Fogs


I'm in a funk. Feeling some kind of way because I don't really have an actual audience just yet. I keep blogging anyway, but I am losing my steam. I'm finding it hard to keep up with my blog routine. I know what I want to accomplish, it's just hard getting there. I tussle mentally with myself with what I want to share, how deep I want to get. There was a post, actually a couple of posts that I really wanted to share, because I know someone needed to hear my experience. To know they are not alone in this whole PCOS circle of darkness. But I know I have certain readers out there in my personal life that read this, and I'm not 110% comfortable with being completely vulnerable with my feelings. 


I'm currently 67 days late, which is very frustrating. Forget baby dancing, it would be nice to just be normal and flush my uterus of old, stagnant blood. That would be great. I'm feeling low. I'm feeling mentally overwhelmed. I know I should exercise, but I don't. Guess what dummy continues to pay $23/mn for a gym membership she doesn't uses? I will not say my name... I know I should get back into cooking my meals at home, and actually buying groceries. I have stopped. I can't even tell you the last time I cooked a meal, or have eaten anything remotely healthy. Water? What's that? Did I take my Vitex this morning? Shit, I skipped a dose of Tribulus. Oops. Oh, what's the point? It's not working anyways!...

STOP!

This is the whirlwind toxic thinking behavior that I go through on a weekly basis. I have my really good days, my ok days, and my just dig a hole and throw me in it days. The only thing that is freaking me out is that these latter days are more frequent and turn into weeks instead of days. So, how do you find your light when everything around you seems so bleak?

You keep going. Don't stop, don't think, just press through it.

I know, easier said than done. I get it. We're human. We're going to make mistakes. We're going to eat shitty, we're going to skip doses of medicines, we're going to not feel up to exercising. We're going to stare at our vitamins, our 4th cup of tea, our tincture and think: why me? Why does it have to be so hard for me? Why do I have to be the one who tries extra hard? 

10 Things I do to beat my Funky Fogs:
  1. Write in a paper journal
  2. Diffuse essential oils: I use Nature's Truth blends at Walgreen's
    (Happiness is my fave blend!)
  3. Go for a walk, or dance to some really good tunes
  4. Join a PCOS support group online
  5. Have you a really kick ass Fertility Friend (my FF has PCOS, too! She keeps me sane!)
  6. Read a book
  7. Go to the beach (weather permitting!)
  8. Go shopping (or browsing if you're saving like me!)
  9. Meditate
  10. Envision, pray, speak into existence what you want in your life
What are some ways you de-stress when it comes to dealing with your PCOS symptoms? If you can't make it to the beach, watch the soothing video I made when I went to the beach in this post.

Vlog Magick v.6: My Growing Walgreen's Addiction

Hey, lovelies! It's been a while. May is still Mental Health Awareness month, so I'm exercising working on myself this month. It's especially important to me because I'm getting a year older in my dirty thirty's. It's both bittersweet and eye opening. I'm finding my depths this month, more so than I have ever been tried in all my 31 years. I'm finding a strength I didn't know I had in myself, and it's growing everyday. I still have many obstacles to overcome, but day by day, a girl is kicking the ass of all the negativity coming my way. I just keep reminding myself and telling myself that this season is almost over. I'm still winning in my own special way. Lovelies, what ways are you taking care of yourself this month?

Adulting: Surviving A Long Term Goal

How To Reach A Long Term Goal:Write the goal downKeep doing what you need to do to achieve the goalConstantly look up things that motivate you towards your goalA little competition never hurts!Speak the goal into existenceExpect to fail, but plan to succeed I made it! Holy crap, Batman! I survived Mental Health Awareness Month, and I have no idea how I kept pushing myself. I skipped lunch today to save the extra coins. Yes, you read that right. A co-worker had a snarky remark about it, but guess what? IDGAF! I have goals in my mind, and I'm keeping my eye on the prize. Summer 2018 is mine, and I can only hope that things are finally falling into place. Besides, it's not like I didn't eat anything. I just didn't order out. I saved my money. Call me cheap.


I don't know what the rest of the Summer holds for me, but I know I'm going places and making progress. It has been slow going, and I have been tried, tempted, and failed so many times. I don't know where …
