The Perils Of Being A Patient With PCOS

The Perils Of Being A Patient With PCOS

Imagine a doctor tells you that there is something wrong with your body.  The doctor proceeds to share with you that the problem you have is genetic, there is no cure, and he has no idea how to really help you.  What he knows he read about in a paragraph on his own in one of his medical books.  He also tells you  that you may never have the opportunity to have children.  You MAY be able to ease some…

Lighting the spark

Lighting the spark

What does it take to get you to be the best version of you? Is something holding you back? Did you decide to start with a goal in mind? What made you start? Do you need encouragement to move forward? Where does the encouragement come from? Can you do it alone? What’s stopping you?? I faced my own battles for years. I definitely could not have started it on my own. What was my motivation? I wanted a baby… really…

Logically and Unequivocally Me

Logically and Unequivocally Me

There are days were I wonder why I write and share these things.  It’s not because I’m brave.  I certainly don’t want to feel vulnerable.  I do it because it’s an outlet.  It’s a way for me to get out the words that I can’t say.  Well then why do I do it in a public forum?  Maybe it’s the hope that I can help others.  Maybe it’s so I feel like people can understand me better.  I’ve been on…

Fighting a losing battle

Fighting a losing battle

For the last few months I’ve been in a really good place. Every once in a while I get derailed and the hard part for me is trying to get back on track.  I’m my own worst critic and I pick apart everything I’m doing wrong.  What sets me off this time?  A stinking number.  A number that won’t change even with my best efforts.  I’m sharing my story not for pity or for encouragement.  I’m not sharing it to…

Becoming Me

Becoming Me

I’ve spent almost 40 years learning who I am.  I’m still learning and practicing more every day.  The one thing that I’m always focused on is growth.  I want to be the best version of me possible.  I’m not looking for perfect – and neither should you. Perfection.  Perfection is not a viable answer in my world.  Perfect means you can’t become any better.  You have nothing to strive for.  There is nothing to challenge you.  Why would perfection ever…

 Shine Bright Sweet One

Hey, girl.  Yeah, you.  The one who isn’t sure of herself.  The one who questions her beauty.  The one who thinks she isn’t up to par.  You don’t feel thin enough, muscular enough, pretty enough, tall enough… or you feel too tall, too chunky, you didn’t hit the goals you want… the one who questions her self-worth daily, questions her ability to do her job… the one who is just tire of it all… I see you.  I see you…

There’s Always A Plan

There’s Always A Plan

I’m forever the planner.  Life is like a chess game to me.  I’m always 6 or 7 steps ahead of the game.  I’m the product of overthinking.  I don’t know how my husband puts up with me ever (<—- See. Overthinking again).  What’s bizarre is that my planning at times can come across as being impulsive.   Showing impulse may not necessarily be a bad thing but it can throw your world around when no one else is expecting it. Case…

Running For A Goal

Running For A Goal

How many times in your life can you say you needed something more? Did you reach out and try to find what that something more was? Do you set goals? Do you try to meet them? What your goals are aren’t really the important part. The important part is the journey to reach them. The part that makes you grow… the part that pulls you out of your comfort zone… the part that changes you… the part that makes you…
