Another day, another workout.
But it is not just another workout. It is one more day of challenging myself. One more day closer to my goal. One more day stronger.
How do I keep myself motivated. Well, I dont always do it on my own. I have my reasoning to becoming healthy that stems from being diagnosed with PCOS and wanting to make my body healthier and stronger. This keeps me motivated on most days.
But, there are days where I fail at motivating myself. That is when I turn to my team. I lean on them for the support I need to keep going and keep showing up for myself every day!
Yall, it is not selfish, nor is it wrong, to make time for yourself. All you have to do is take the next step, have faith in yourself, and find a team that empowers you on the days you cant do it for yourself!
What are you going to do for yourself today to make a better tomorrow?

✨PCOS and Me✨
I decided to start this instagram so I could track my journey on the road to healing my pcos and hopefully connect with those who are fighting the same fight. This is my story. .
Ever since I can remember I’ve had always irregular and painful periods along with bad breakout and the inability to lose weight. I was teased some times in school for my breakouts in my face, I still do sometimes and I’ve been out of school for 7 years. I’ve never been small either and always found it extremely difficult to lose weight, no matter how hard I tried. I could never lose more than 5 kg at a time. It wasn’t until my best friend suggested that I see a gynocologist that I even considered I had PCOS, let alone knew what it was. I was diagnosed last year and it’s been a journey since then. So here’s my journey. .

This morning I lost my ish. Straight up.
I got up at 430, fed the baby while sipping my unicorn juice. At 5 my body was pumping and I was ready to go. Then I couldn’t find the remote that plays my workouts. This might seem so minimal to someone but that remote is the key to my sanity. I have a four year old who’s attitude has beyond tested me this week, a 9 month old who got her flu shot and just isn’t herself and isn’t sleeping and then my job which is a completely different story.
As a mom, we get very few things that our *ours*. My workouts are that for me. Because if I don’t channel that energy into my workout I channel is through stuffing my face full of garbage food.
Did I mention that remote is key to my sanity?! So I finally streamed HALF of the workout on my computer and now here I lay, crying, feeling defeated and trying to find the energy to get up and shower and go work my ass off for someone else.
I think I can.. I think I can.. I think I can..... #lostmyish #myoutlet #formysanity #momlife #needtobreathe #pcoswarrior #letsgetthroughtheday #needmetime #lovemykids #butholyshit #clearyourmind #onestepatatime

Every time you think you are broken,
know this: you are never really breaking.
No one can break an ocean, darling, all you are doing, is breaking the glass that is holding you back, diving deeper into your own depths, discovering yourself in pockets of the most somber waves, rebuilding your heart with coral, with seaweed, with moon coloured sand dust.
So stop trying to hold yourself back inside that glass, it was never meant to hold you.
Instead, break it, shatter it into a thousand pieces…and become who you were always meant to be,
an ocean, proud and whole.

Reasons not to take #Metformin
- - People with kidney or liver problems should not take Metformin. Your health care provider will check your blood to make sure that you do not have blood, kidney or liver problems before you start Metformin and then usually once a year after that. - If you get sick and throw up or have #diarrhea
, call your health care provider and stop your Metformin until you feel completely well. - It's very important not to be dehydrated (not having enough fluids in your body) while taking Metformin. - You should not binge drink alcohol and take Metformin. - If you're going to have surgery or a medical or dental procedure where you can’t have anything to eat or drink, talk to your health care provider about stopping the Metformin for 48 hours before the procedure.
- If you're scheduled for an X–ray that includes a "contrast material" (a dye that helps the radiologist see the images better), you should talk to your health care provider about stopping your Metformin for up to 48 hours before and after the test.
, having #kidneyproblems
, or having a serious infection can cause the rare condition called "lactic acidosis", so it's important to talk to your health care provider about any of these problems

This is why I like side by sides. So I started this journey in Feb 2015.... I was 604 LBS. Yes 604 LBS. I have honestly gone through a lot in my life just like everyone else. But I do have PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) and I have a Binge Eating Disorder....(I do turn to food when I am upset and emotionally eat, but to a greater degree, and at a point and time that was everyday.)
I have fluctuated so many times in my weight this journey has had its ups and downs. But I refuse to ever give up. I am now currently today going to go weigh myself again and get an update and see what I am....last time I checked I was 453 lbs so down 151 LBS from where I started. I have been 448 LBS at my lowest so far. I will get to my goal of 200 LBS.
What makes me fight everyday is the fact that I want to 1. Get healthier again (which I have made great strides in that department, but still have a long way to go) but 2. I want to prove to myself that I can accomplish what I feel is the impossible.
Please do not judge others and their battles. People who are morbidly obese are not that way BY CHOICE. It’s not because they are “LAZY” or “GLUTTONOUS” or whatever other crappy words people choose to describe us. There is always a catalyst to the madness and a lot of times the weight is a symptom of a much scarier issue, whether it be mental illness, or a metabolic syndrome, or something else. People who get up to 600 LBS or more don’t usually get there because they WANT to be there. So please reserve your judgements for someone else ;)

L'un des meilleurs trucs que j'ai pu manger ces derniers temps 😍😍😍 Bouchées dattes, beurre de cacahuètes et noix de coco.
INGRÉDIENTS - Dattes
- Beurre de cacahuètes (non sucré)
- Coco râpée et/ou cacao sans sucre pour l'enrobage
1. Mixer les dattes (les dénoyauter avant !) et le beurre de cacahuètes au robot.
2. Former des boulettes avec la main.
3. Rouler les boulettes dans la coco râpée ou le cacao !
Les conserver au frais et penser à les sortir un peu avant de les déguster pour qu'elles soient fondantes !
Évidemment, c'est sain mais très calorique, n'en mangez pas 30 😂😂 en collation, 3 ou 4 suffisent à caler.

I was in the hospital on Monday because of my PCOS. I had to call an ambulance because I couldn’t move or make it to my car in time to get to a clinic or hospital. So many women have no idea that they have it, while other like me don’t have enough information to get treatment for it. The EMTs that came to assist me didn’t know what PCOS was. And the physicians assistant at the hospital completely disregarded me once I said I had it. There isn’t enough research for the doctors to know what to do. There is no cure or treatment plan. Please wear teal this month to bring awareness. Please start asking questions and inquiring about it. Because you know someone who has it. But they may not know it yet. #pcos #pcosawareness #pcosfighter #pcossupport #pcosawarenessmonth #pcoswarrior

De diagnose PCOS kan soms worden gemist als: 🌸
🌸 Je geen overgewicht hebt.
🌸 Je een regelmatige cyclus hebt.
🌸 Je zonder medische hulp zwanger bent geraakt.
🌸Je geen "kralenkrans" rondom je eierstokken hebt.
🌸Je geen overbeharing hebt.
Twee van de drie volgende symptomen dienen aanwezig te zijn om gediagnosticeerd te worden met PCOS:
1. Oligo- of anovulatie: een verminderde of ontbrekende eisprong.
2. Hyperandrogenisme: te veel aan lichaamsbeharing, acne, kaalheid of een te hoog vrij-testosteron gehalte in het bloed. Dit laatste wordt door middel van bloedonderzoek vast gesteld.
3. De aanwezigheid van meer dan 12 cystes per eierstok. Dit wordt vastgesteld met behulp van een (inwendige) echo.
Doordat iemand 2 van de 3 kenmerken moet hebben om PCOS te hebben, zijn er dus ook grote verschillen tussen vrouwen met PCOS. Het kunnen bijvoorbeeld kenmerk 1 en 2 zijn, maar ook 1 en 3. Hierdoor kunnen de klachten ook erg verschillen.
In de praktijk blijkt dat verschillende ziekenhuizen er verschillende protocollen op na houden omtrent de diagnose van PCOS. Ook de behandeling ervan verschilt.
Om PCOS vast te stellen behoren bloedonderzoek en echoscopisch onderzoek plaats te vinden.
Gelukkig wordt het steeds vaker herkend, maar is er nog veel onbekend. Spread the word!

Do you sleep enough? Or more importantly, do you sleep well enough? .
In a day and age where copious amounts of sleep is almost deemed “lazy” and our rest almost always takes a back seat to the ever trendy “run-off-your-feet kinda busy”, I’m here to tell you a little secret. .
Not only is sleep one of, if not THE, most important element when it comes to development and maintenance of your body, it’s actual the complete opposite of a lazy, sedentary process. In fact, sleep is a very active process. We just don’t see it happening. .
There’s still much mystery as to what actually goes on in our brains when we sleep, but we do know that sleep is crucial to laying down new memories and learnt skills, removing toxic waste substances from our brain, allowing repair of well-worked and damaged muscles and organs, maintaining mental sanity and ensuring we perform at our best levels when we are awake.
Lack of sleep can cause performance deficits similar to those seen when you’re intoxicated (think poor judgement, lack of inhibition, clumsiness) and can also spike your cortisol - a stress hormone linked to weight gain, chronic health issues and inflammation. .
So before you think you’re letting others or yourself down by choosing to rest and have that sleep in, remember that you can’t be your best, for yourself or anyone else, if you don’t prioritise sleep!💫✨

A common question we get asked is ‘What tests should I ask for?” There are at least 50 parameters or tests that may need to be performed for a couple experiencing fertility problems in order to rule out possible reasons or cause for infertility. Without knowing specific circumstances, it’s tough to pinpoint which specific tests you should ask for.
But! There are a few baseline numbers you should be familiar with, so today on our blog we’re reviewing our top 4 tests for any couple dealing with unexplained infertility.

Still can’t believe there is a little baby growing inside of me! Anxiously waiting to feel an official kick. These past couple days I feel like I felt something move, but im not sure if it’s the baby or just my mind playing games with me. How far along were you the first time you felt a kick?
Join my tribe ♥️
Digging wearing this heavy blanket tonight.

The ways I calm my anxiety are:
Lots of water. Meditation/Prayer. Exercise. And now I’m adding this in the mix 🤩
