September 2018: PCOS Awareness Month

It's PCOS Awareness Month, and I've got so much going on with managing my PCOS, that I didn't even realize. Hence why I'm a whole 14 days late. But just like managing your PCOS symptoms, it's never too late to start!

I'm feeling good about the steps I am taking right now in order to reverse the effects my PCOS wreaks havoc on my body. I'm claiming my health back, and I will not let PCOS beat me. Over the next few weeks I want to share with you some of the steps I am taking to reclaiming my health and balancing my hormones naturally.

The natural journey takes time, strength, and a lot of effort. Consistency is key. There's a lot of research on my part, because right now I'm not working with an Herbalist or an Endocrinologist, because I've tried both. The Endo just wants to pump me full of synthetic hormones and drugs that force my body to ovulate and I'm not into that at all. I loved my Acupuncturist/Herbalist, but that was getting so expensive at $90/week! Her herbs were really gross, and I couldn't afford my other supplements.

There is no one cure-all to managing PCOS. It's a myriad of symptoms so it's going to take more than one remedy to alleviate your symptoms. Especially going the natural route, there's going to be a lot of ups and downs, trial and error, but most importantly you are going to reach your balance. The more you think of the terms of balancing instead of "fixing", the more solace you can give yourself.

You don't need to be fixed, you are not broken!

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?
