I have rejigged some of my posts.

As this blog gets more successful and I attempt to widen my networking skills, I have found that certain social media sites are not being used to their full capacity due to family members/employers/colleagues do not know I am trying for a baby.

I do not want the blogs audience to be limited but I also do not want to stop writing about this part of my life, nor do I want to miss out on some peoples journeys that I have encountered over the past few months.

With this in mind I have made a new site where you can continue reading my TTC journey right here:

My new TTC blog – Go follow it!

I will continue to post Paleo, PCOS, cat and married life posts here.

Please note this post will remain for 30 days and then I will remove this post as I do not want a link to the new site.

Thanks guys!

After the storm comes a rainbow.

For the past two days I have been trying to stick to the Paleo Diet  as much as possible, I am eating breakfast everyday which isn’t always the case in the past. With work it is hard to eat the right breakfast, so granola and goats milk yoghurt it is the best option for me. My lunch remains the same going forward: carrots, mange tois, tuna and broccoli with a pot of fruit as dessert.

My afternoon snack is the “food doctor” crisps, which are a healthier option. Dinner is meat, veg and Dessert is a healthier yoghurt.

I know yoghurt is dairy (but the goats milk yoghurt isn’t really is it? woo!) and that I shouldn’t be having it but with my sweet tooth, making healthy desserts for one is a chore.

I am feeling a lot better for it, I am finding it a lot easier to get out of bed in the morning, HOWEVER……

Oh my days, my skin is awfull!!!! I have so many spots at present. I am hoping it is my body getting rid of all of the toxins in my body due to me eating healthier and as the title of this post states I like to think that I am in the eye of the storm right now.

I am hoping this time next week there will be more updates, hopefully more positive aswell!!

Today is a bad day

I’m not sure if it’s the lack of sleep or just being frustrated but looking on sites about PCOS is just getting me confused.

The last week my symptoms are getting worse. I’ve been off of contraception since May 3rd and as it’s only use was to keep my symptoms at bay I feel they’re coming back with a vengeance.

My skin is so oily and although spots are always. Problem, they’re worse. I usually have one or two big ones and now my face seems covered in small bumps as well. The usual beauty regime that has worked for the past six months isn’t working anymore. My hair Lasts no more than 1.5 days after washing it, before it becomes a grease-ball. My unwanted hair is appearing every other day with a new hair sprouting just waiting to be plucked. I’m overly emotional and scared my depression is rearing its head, I’ve been off anti depressants since March/April and do not like the idea of being back on them. I always freak that if my moods stay low for more than a few days then it’s coming back, but I shouldn’t wallow, I should try to be positive but it’s hard when I know how low I can go.

I decided to do research on blogs for PCOS today praying that I’ll find something to help, or at least perk me up but it proved my point that the most popular sites are years old, barely updated or just crap.

One thing I do wonder though, every fact site mentions losing weight, being a UK size ten I doubt I’m in that boat, however I also wonder “would it hurt?”

I’ve always had a problem with food, not in an anorexic/bulimic sense, but I’m a fussy eater. I don’t eat meat in a bone or meat that looks like an animal. I have an appetite like a sparrow but give me a dessert before dinner and I’m a happy lady.

With these issues, is it any wonder I’m apprehensive to even consider “dieting” when I’m small sized as it is, I would consider speaking to my GP but the only woman GP at my surgery I had faith in talking to about PCOS has left and sexist as it may be, I don’t know if a male doctor could truly sympathies with a late twenties woman blubbering about food and fertility issues.

If there is anyone who can help me with suggestions I would be most thankful.

I’m signing off,
