Chaste Tree: Two Weeks In

I have tried to take Chaste Tree, or Vitex in the past, but this is one of those herbs where two things really matter:
  1. Brand
  2. Time
I tried the Hawaii Pharm brand, and I cannot say it did or didn't work, because I didn't finish the bottle. It was purchased solely for price point. It was a 2oz bottle for only $20! I love Herb Pharm. I have been taking this brand of Black Cohosh and it always does what I need it to do. I was so excited to order the Vitex, and this is it. I'm happy to be in the beginning stages of a good regimen to combat my PCOS.

I am currently taking:
  1. Black Cohosh from CD 16-27
  2. Vitex in the morning all month long
  3. Prenatal all month long
I feel really well. My brain fog is diminishing, I don't feel as tired or cranky like I usually do. I also think taking the Vitex with the Black Cohosh is subsiding the wonky effects Black Cohosh usually have on me. {You can read about that here.} But holy acne! I've been breaking out a lot since I started taking Vitex. It's a-OK 👌 by me, because I figure this is my hormones finally balancing out. I will not complain, but this is me complaining 😬

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?
