I listened to an outstanding podcast this morning that I just had to share with you! If you have been around for a bit, you know that I once struggled with PCOS and Hypothyroidism.
This was an outstanding podcast, for one because I could relate and two because it reminded me of some things that I knew ‘back in the day’ but given 2020 and 2021, most specifically our last 14 mths for our family, my brain was on over load!
Jenn reminded me that women with PCOS do NOT want to be doing a ton of cardio, that will work against you! I knew there was a reason I am truthfully not a cardio fan at all LOL! Also the importance of some supplements for our body, keeping in mind everyone’s health is different so its truly not a cut and dry solution for one scenario!
I have shifted… back in May I believe I shared with you that I crumbled. At times hard. Typing this blog, I can feel emotions sneaking up to the surface, so there is still some work to do. In my safe place, in my zen den, because thats where I would only work out, in May I found myself pushing, pushing through pain – physical as I have an upper rib that pops out a lot, also pushing through emotional pain.
Cancel hustle culture… there truly is NO room for this in anyone’s life. A previous program I was doing, I can now see although it provided me with some success moments, it wasn’t fueling me properly… it was fueling a fire that needed first to be tamed.
Truthfully, I signed up with Jenn to ease into this new lifestyle, she also provides incredible nutrition – like real nutrition and LIVES by it. So for me, with my various food sensitivities I would have to adapt a LOT of recipes… many of her’s are Pam friendly, which lets be real, makes it SO much easier! I am truly excited for her Free Yoga Class on Friday morning!
Even if you have not been diagnosed with PCOS this is a good listen for every woman!

As I sat down this evening I had a “memory” reminder pop up. It happened to be this blog post…
Where in the blog post I wrote about taking time for myself, healing and how much it meant to share family time with our extended sides over the holidays 🥰 Which. Let’s be real isn’t happening and although part of me is LOVING the extra time, our kids are seriously missing out as are the adults from precious family time.
I then saw this photo… from our Christmas 2015. With my lifestyle shift I had begun to shed a bit of weight… about 5lbs. Which for me was significant. I then thought of our this years photo… not only how much healthier I am but happier too!
Another bonus I read in that post, from on this day in 2015… my parents had all 5 kids for a sleepover lol which was just what we needed after a busy holiday!!! 🙃
