Cyster Talk: Nutrition, Step 1

There are 6 steps to help alleviate the problems with PCOS, and Step 1 is always the hardest. Are you like me? Spend hundreds of dollars on different products that claim to help reverse your infertility, or will help boost your fertility? If so,


I know, easier said than done. But honestly, it can be done. We can do it together, because right now I am struggling with my Nutritional intake as well. When you start eating for nutrition and not to fill your belly, that's how you go down the right path. I'm so notorious for thinking that I can just ditch all the junk I've been eating my entire life and go clean 110% on day one. Nope. Not going to work. I mean, I ate a really gross meal last night, but it was packed with nutrition. I had leftover Knorr Teriyaki rice, I scrambled an organic egg inside of it, and added a handful of spinach. It was gross, but I forced it down. One, because I don't like to waste food, and two, because it was packed with nutrition.  

Another misconception is that you can't afford to eat clean. Oh, and let's make something very clear right now: there is a difference between eating "healthy" and eating "clean". With PCOS we are aiming to eat clean

I want to eat more fruits and veggies, so I buy canned fruit and canned veggies. That's healthy, right?

Nope, on so many levels. You gotta think BPA from the can liner, and if the can advertises BPA free, then guess what? You betcha they used another chemical that is just as worse, if not worse than BPA. Also, that can of fruit is going to be loaded with so many added sugars, just don't.

Rule of thumb? Stick with fresh and frozen. Now, if all your budget only allows for canned, then guess what? Still better than any other junk you could be eating in the store.

  1. Fresh
  2. Frozen
  3. Canned

Start simple. Make small changes weekly, until you get a better feel how to navigate. If you see Organic on sale, buy it! I bought a dozen large organic eggs last night for only $3.99, this coming from a person that is used to only spending $1 on her eggs at the Dollar Tree. I got a tub of Spinach for $2.50 that will last me a few days, or I could choose to freeze half the tub for smoothies or to use in eggs. I got cajun grilled chicken to add to my spinach for a salad at work, a splurge at $5.50. I spent less than $20 and I'm eating clean 👍👌😁

Weekly Challenge:

  • Eat oatmeal in the morning, don't add sugar
  • Drink water throughout the day
  • Add spinach to lunch and dinner
  • Buy the least expensive fruit + eat it every day

Also, I am still taking my Vitex in the morning, my one dose of Tribulus, and I just added Norwegian Cod Liver Oil (Vitamin Shoppe brand), because I found the bottle after cleaning. What are some things you're doing or planning on doing? Drop a comment below.

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 …

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?
