Tonight’s meds of choice 💊 I find codeine a good all rounder for moderate pain. I get on really well with it unless I’ve not eaten and then I get a very brief episode of pancreatic pain which is killer. So handy having these on repeat prescription 💕💕

What are the ladies saying about our virtual workouts?! Are you ready just hop on the wagon and join us?! 👇🏻✨👇🏻✨
.
Its so easy for us to make excuses. I'm too busy. I'm tired. I don't have time. I can't physically do that. I don't have the money. 💰 .
Maybe you are just embarrassed to admit where you are right now. 😞 Its a hard pill to swallow sometimes. 💯
.
Start with a positive attitude and make a list of reasons why you CAN! 📝 .
We all have lost mins in the day. It doesn't matter if you can ONLY walk... WALK! 🏃🏼‍♀️
.
I was talking to someone today on the phone and she said that someone told her that walking wouldn't do anything for you to improve your health. 😮 I wanted to scream! If you can walk... WALK! 👣
.
I don't care where you are right now. Its a good place to START. 👍🏻 Walking is FREEEE.... drinking more water is FREEEE (well kind of lol). 💦
.
If you are doing NOTHING to be healthy, here's my FREE advice... 🆓
.
Walk and drink lots of water! 😜

Bring on the naps! 😴 anyone else a napper? Do you prefer short or longer naps? What’s the best time frame for a nap for you? 💤

Sorry for the radio silence. We’re taking some time out at the moment. We had an appointment around a month ago with a new Gynaecologist. She was absolutely amazing and was super thorough. However, she thinks there’s a risk I may have a condition called Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia (non-classic type) which could be causing the PCOS and infertility. I have all the normal anatomy etc but it could be causing havoc with my hormones. So... now we have had to have a special blood test that’s been sent to a lab in London and she’s requested all my hospital notes from when I was a child (had investigations when I had my first period at 8 years old). This will all take a few months to get the results. •
So for now we are taking some time off to enjoy our summer and each other. We have booked Wilderness festival, a week holiday to Turkey and also a city break to Prague! August will be amazing 🌻💗
We’ll never stop living our lives, even when it doesn’t go to plan. One step at a time, we’ll get to where we need to be.
I love this J.R.R. Tolkien quote “little by little, one travels far”. A little reminder on my fireplace 💗

Ladies. We had an anon msg from a young woman who has been recently been diagnosed with endometriosis and is struggling to explain the condition to her friends and family - mainly due to the invisible side effects.

Could you offer some of your thoughts 💛🎗️💚

I’m so excited to share my sweet friend and cyster, LaRaesha, has joined this round of the PCOS Academy! She is an elementary teacher 👩🏼🏫 and momma of 2 sweet little boys (can we say Chaos Coordinator?!). 😅
.
She is one of those people that you wished lived closer because you have so much in common and you know you both can offer so much to a relationship (yes, this introvert just said that!)! Thankful for the gift of social media to make the distance not seem as far! 👭
.
I’m excited to partner with you on this journey, LaRaesha! I can’t wait to see what the future holds for you! ✨

Back in bed, back in my pjs, back watching Grey’s Anatomy. My happy place 💕 currently nursing a cup of tea and snuggling a fox 🦊 shaped wheat bag to get some heat into my pelvis. Such a lovely, thoughtful gift from my angel @iamyourdensity for Christmas last year 💜

Un nouveau post sur mes repas.

Je ne compte pas poster tous mes repas sans exception car ils sont encore bien trop ennuyeux et simples pour être vraiment intéressants. Il faudrait vraiment que je teste des recettes... Cependant, ce post montre que, oui, je m'alimente. Et jusqu'à satiété.
Un petit creux ? Je prend une collation (oléagineux, fruit, protéine).
Et ça marche.
D'avoir considérablement levé le pied sur les glucides (mauvais glucides, sucres ajoutés, etc.) m'a fait perdre environ 2kg en 1 semaine !

Et, croyez moi, je suis la première étonnée.
Toute ma vie, j'ai cru qu'il fallait que je me laisse mourir de faim pour pouvoir être "comme les autres filles".
De cela à découlé bien des années de souffrances (anorexie, dépression...).
Pour le moment, mon sentiment général est plutôt la colère. Je m'en veux et j'en veux également au corps médical...
Si mon SOPK avait été diagnostiqué plus tôt, si les médecins avaient vraiment cherché le fond du problème, si on m'avait écouté, cru...
Peut être que ma maladie aurait été prise en charge plus tôt.
On aurait découvert mon hyperinsulinisme et je me serais adaptée, soignée. (des traitements médicamenteux existent !) Si j'ai été capable de me laisser mourir de faim pendant 14 ans, je pense que j'aurai pu également faire quelques changements des plus simples dans mon quotidien.
Mais voilà où mène un gros manque d'information et une incompréhension certaine.

Bref, pour le moment je suis trop en colère pour rester positive.
A moi de transformer cette colère en force qui m'aidera à déplacer des montagnes...
Je veux y croire.

Morning everyone, I hope you’re all well! 💜 just woken up after a lovely hen party day/ evening yesterday and I actually managed to stay out until 12am! I came back to our apartment early because of pain BUT I’m taking it as an achievement lasted that long. Now for a cup of tea and some breakfast cake. •

Deconstructed bacon & egg 'burger' with field mushrooms, dill pickle, cherry tomatoes, advocado & spinach. Trying to kick start a new #carbfree diet to gain back control of my weight 😥 Also have #endometriosis surgery this week which the anxiety has increased my desire to eat sweets & carbs 🤤

Today was another step in my recovery, one I have been reluctant to take. Since my surgery and diagnoses, I have not gone anywhere near a bathing suit. I was so confident when I was a size 4 with almost no belly. Now my body had stretch marks and scars in places I never knew they would exist. Finding something that made me feel confident and that was wearable with my crazy weight fluctuations was a process, but I found it to be more relaxing than stressful. Both my husband and I are learning to love my new body and shape even if I do go up and down 12 pounds in a day. With his encouragement and reminder of my beauty in his eyes, I was able to be bold and show my scars proudly. Bikini season here we come. #pcoswarrior #pcos #infertility #infertilityawareness #cysters #endoworrior #endocrineissues #scarsandstripes #curvyandconfident #laprecovery #laparascopy

There may be some hardships or things that hurt our heart but there is always joy ahead. You’re loved, you’re valued and it’s all going to be okay.

I have said it a thousand times and I will keep saying it over and over until YOU get it. This journey is much more psychological than physical. .
We have that inner voice that reminds us of who we are and how we should be. We can choose to feed that inner voice with positivity, negativity, or not at all. I believe that if you aren't feeding it with positivity, then you are working toward self destruction and you will allow it to be toxic to yourself. Not feeding it at all? You may as well be on a long journey to nowhere.
.
When we feed our souls with love, compassion, grace, we truly see who we are and what we were created for! God did NOT create us to tear ourselves down. He did NOT create YOU to speak such negativity to not only each OTHER but to YOURSELF. .
The way you allow your inner voice to speak to you, is that how you would speak to your best friend? Your daughter? If not, then you need to check yourself (before you wreck yourself!). .
Seriously, LOVE yourself. LOVE yourself enough to have reality checks often enough to make sure you are on the RIGHT path of self love and discovery. Don't ignore HATE - even if it is toward YOURSELF.

Man I was really feeling myself in this outfit so I snapped a picture. When I looked at this photo my eyes immediately went to the areas of my body I’m uncomfortable with. I almost retouched this photo to make myself look better, but why? What truth would that tell? I’m not perfect and one day I’ll look back and see all the progress since this was taken. Be yourself, inexcusably ❤️🤘🏻 _______________________________________________________

Yup, time to change the plan. This time, I’m legit organizing my ENTIRE day. I was SO successful when I did this, and I stopped, about 3 years ago, if not more. I need structure and routine.

Started today, diving deeper Monday. Cause Sunday’s have always been the same, and I LOVE my Sunday’s, so no need to change up that day. 😉

Pepperoni #pizza with a chicken crust! The fiance was particularly proud, this was his first ever keto pizza he made by himself, and he didn't use a recipe. Turned out great!

Fatigue.
No, I don’t mean feeling a bit tired, I mean can’t keep your eyes open, full body exhausted, even first thing in the morning, no matter what you do fatigue 🙁
Fatigue is a common symptom of PCOS and it’s so flipping frustrating. I’m doing everything I should be, eating right, exercising, losing weight, going to bed early, and yet this week I feel like I’ve been hit by a truck.
I have been exceptionally stressed this week, I know that can effect me and I suspect that coupled with the main culprit, my old friend insulin resistance, is what’s making me feel like I need to sleep all of the time.
I’m wondering what my fellow #cysters do to fight this fatigue? Do you take supplements? I really want to avoid prescribed medication if I can (I already take the pill to fight some PCOS symptoms). I’ll be spending my Saturday reading about how to fight this............. if I can stay awake 😴

Keep your confidence high and your wardrobe fly!!

Saturday’s are for squats 🏋🏻‍♀️ Even on the weekends we lift! This top was perfectly appropriate for me today with what I’ve been dealing with..

Not every day is easy. Not every day is a complete success. Some days we have to push through to check the boxes off the list. Some days we have to bite our tongue when we disagree. Fly higher and do you and keep your eye on prize!!

It’s easier said than done sometimes. I have God, my husband and family, and some amazing friends that help me to remember to fly higher and push through..

Don’t lose your drive and don’t let anyone take that from you!!

One serving of scoopable keto ice cream, straight out of the freezer. I still need to tinker with my own ingredients (I think the mct oil I have may have screwed me over), but I'm still enjoying this delicious vanilla bean soft serve! Head over to @angel619sd's page if you want to make some too! At 3.7g net carbs per serving, how can you not? .

#lowcarb all the way 😋 switched from skim milk to half and half from @starbucks (sugar free vanilla, no classic) so far I've been maintaining my weight without tracking every little calorie and the stress relief from it is amazing. I'm so glad it's my Friday though!

So my month of #cleanketo is finished and in total I lost 2.4kg (just over 5lb) and got my glucose down from 5.6 to 4.9 (it did drop down to 4.1 on some days) honestly I didn't stick to it as well as I planned. The first two weeks were 'perfect but the last 2 I got lazy and had some cheese and processed foods 😬 but whatever I'm not perfect but am really happy with these results! I usually lose weight really slowly so over 5lbs in a month is great for me! You may have seen in my stories I haven't tracked daily the last 10 days it was getting to my head a bit and I was becoming obsessed so I'm going to ease up on the tracking bit try keep as natural as possible!

The word “worry” is rooted in the Old English wyrgan, meaning “strangle,” which is pretty much what worry does to us, when you give it some thought. We hear all the time that useless worry steals our joy, and it also prevents us from focusing on those things help nurture our spirit. Commit today to eliminate worry from your list of bad habits. ✨

PCOS is one of the most common hormonal disorders in the developed world. In fact, it’s thought to affect almost 7% of pre-menopausal women in North America.⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Most women with PCOS will experience one or more of the following symptoms:⠀
• Irregular or absence of menstrual periods⠀
• Excess body or facial hair, indicative of increased androgen levels⠀
• Cysts on one or both ovaries⠀
• Uncontrollable weight gain⠀
• Infertility⠀
• Sleep apnea⠀
• Insulin resistance and associated metabolic problems⠀
• Acne and/or embarrassing hair loss⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The most effective diet for PCOS is one that promotes weight loss and reduces levels of the hormone insulin. One of the most effect ways of eating for these results is a high fat, low carb diet (note that this is not the complete elimination of carbohydrates because your body still needs them). ⠀
In a small study of women with PCOS, a high fat, low carb diet diet reduced body weight by an average of 12% after 24 weeks. There was also significant improvements in PCOS hormones, and a 54% reduction in fasting insulin levels.⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I regularly recommend this way of eating to my patients struggling to overcome PCOS and have seen incredible results amongst those following The Fat Fuel Formula™️. To learn more about this 12 week fully guided program click the link in my bio.⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

#factfriday Vitamin D can play an important role in helping to reduce some symptoms for women with #PCOS! According to research, we are 3 times more likely to be severely deficient in Vitamin D! Our wellness expert @hawthorne05 shared some important tips about Vitamin D this week, so I decided to do more research to see how it directly correlates to women with #PCOS ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
———
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
*Vitamin D can help improve fertility and regulation of the menstrual cycle (especially paired with calcium intake but dairy is a no no for us 🙅🏽‍♀️) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
* Lower Androgen ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
*Lower Inflamation and decrease Insulin resistance ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
———
I started taking Vitamin D supplements after the doctor told me I was low this winter but then I fell off — I’ll be going to the store this weekend to get more now! Let’s hope this helps my period come soon too 🤞🏾 @findinghopewithpcos

The last few days have been hell. I’ve made a major decision to take some time off of school after separating from my husband. So I’m back to working my butt off. I work Monday-Friday as a lead teacher in a daycare and pick up 20 hours a week at a grocery store I worked at before I moved to Indiana a few years back! So between working and sleeping, I’ve been trying so so so hard to get my eating habits back on track and take the millions of vitamins I use to take when I was naturally ttc. My consultation with a new RE is next Friday and I’m so incredibly nervous. Lots of prayers that he says all the things I need to hear to get me through this next step forward 🌸🌸🌸

Jesus. Thank god it’s Friday. Home from work and straight in a bath. I’ve bloated up slowly today to about the size of a small humpback whale. It’s so sore and painful. Absolutely typical when I want to wear a nice dress tomorrow. 🙄☹️ this literally always happens to me. Always! •

In the midst of hectic schedules, working overtime, preparing for school, etc. I had to remind myself to breathe, to enjoy things around me, to make time for myself to relax. So I saw this and felt the need to share because I'm sure someone somewhere also needs that reminder.

Mood: lying in down in my living room and listening to Ed Sheeran all night. (Don’t judge).
Got THE call with my doctor. I actually feel bad for doctors when they’re nice because they genuinely don’t know how to help. Here are the conclusions:
- the pill helps with the endometriosis and PCOS symptoms but not with the adenomyosis (hence the constant pain in spite of it all - at least now I know why).
- Solution 1 for adenomyosis: an IUD, which would help with the pain but not with all the other symptoms (acne, anxiety, PMDD, etc), and would make me gain weigh and increase the excessive androgenism.
- solution 2: a hysterectomy, which would not even guarantee the absence of symptoms and I would have to kiss the option of ever having kids goodbye (not that I want any but you never know). In other words: no solutions.
So I know there are plenty of things to do naturally, through nutrition and exercise and a strict lifestyle and I will eventually get there.
For now though, time to lick my wounds and cry to Ed. .

Le SOPK touche les ovaires mais comme il s’agit d’une maladie endocrinienne, il a un impact sur tout l’équilibre hormonal et peut entrainer différentes complications au niveau métabolique, cardiovasculaire, reproductif mais aussi général.

Pour mieux comprendre le Syndrome des Ovaires Polykystiques (SOPK). Le syndrome des ovaires polykystiques est une pathologie endocrinienne.
Son appellation fait référence à l’un des aspects de ce syndrome visible à l’échographie, à savoir l’accumulation autour des ovaires de multiples petits kystes. Ces kystes sont en réalité des follicules qui refusent d’entrer en croissance lors de la dernière étape de la phase folliculaire. Cet aspect n’est cependant qu’une facette du SOPK, un syndrome qui peut se manifester différemment selon les femmes dans des formes plus ou moins complètes, avec de multiples répercussions sur la santé féminine.

🌸Tip 91. Lavender Reduces Anxiety🌸
.
Whilst staying in Hvar, Croatia I quickly began to recognise that Lavender is an important part of life for the local people who harvest it from all over the island and produce this aromatic plant in many different forms from oils and soaps to candles 💜.
.
It was great to see and smell Lavender everywhere I went and I love it for a variety of reasons👇
.
• Helps treat anxiety.
• Helps treat depression.
• Calms the mind / promotes relaxation.
• Improves sleep.
• Reduces pain (can also relief PMS symptoms).
• Reduces swelling.
• Use topically on eczema or dermatitis.
• Treats burns and cuts.
• Treats dry or chapped skin.
• Alleviates the symptoms of hay fever. .
• A natural flavour booster in foods and drinks.
.
What form of Lavender did I buy when I was in Hvar?.
• A bottle of Lavender essential oil which I have been putting a few drops on my pillow before I go to sleep (please go to tip 59 on my page for more info about essential oils for PCOS). .
.
Overall #lavender is calming, relaxing and balancing – physically and emotionally which is perfect for a natural remedy for PCOS 🙌💜. .
