I Haven't Disappered!

Hey ladies! I promise I'm still here! I'm so sorry that it's been so long since I've posted! I lost my internet connection for a while and life got in the way, but I'm back now! Just a quick update on what's new with me: I'm in nursing school and have found a wonderful man! I hope y'all are doing good! I promise I will post more often!

Music Monday: John Mayer "Dreaming With A Broken Heart"

When you're dreaming with a broken heart
The waking up is the hardest part
You roll outta bed and down on your knees
And for a moment you can hardly breathe
Wondering, "Was she really here?
Is she standing in my room?"
No she's not, 'cause she's gone, gone, gone, gone, gone....

When you're dreaming with a broken heart
The giving up is the hardest part
She takes you in with her crying eyes
Then all at once you have to say goodbye
Wondering, "Could you stay my love?
Will you wake up by my side?"
No she can't, 'cause she's gone, gone, gone, gone, gone....

Now do I have to fall asleep with roses in my hand?
Do I have to fall asleep with roses in my hand?
Do I have to fall asleep with roses in my hand?
Do I have to fall asleep with roses in my, roses in my hand?
would you get them if I did?
No you won't, 'cause you're gone, gone, gone, gone, gone....

When you're dreaming with a broken heart
The waking up is the hardest part

My Best Friend is Pregnant

And while I truly am happy for my best friend and her husband it is kind of bittersweet for me. Is it ever going to happen for me? Can I even have them? I guess it doesn't really matter because I need to find someone to have them with first. Maybe one day. I just need to have faith.

I was on Facebook last night and saw this on PCOS Nutrition Center's page and loved it! I have send out e-mails before, but never really knew what all to say. Here's a good place to start!

ATTENTION! Please read, share and contribute to this important information from fellow cyster and PCOS activist Ashley Levinson:


Everyone often asks how do we get awareness out there!!! It starts with you and your willingness to put yourself out there. Over the years I have gotten a lot of media exposure, not because I am special, not because I am different from any of you but because I am willing to fight the fight.. How did I do it?? Simple I looked online and found out the contacts for all of these media outlets and simply put my story out there.

Now its your turn to help and blow up the local, state and national media markets.. I am calling on all of you to make a change…

On Friday January 10, 2014 I am asking everyone to have their stories and pictures together and to have found contacts to their local media..

On this day we are going to so something revolutionary, we are gonna bomb the media with all things PCOS and let our stories and voices be heard.

How do I create my story???? Very simple… I am including a very small little template

In (ADD YOUR YEAR OF DIAGNOSIS) I was diagnosed with a syndrome not many individuals, let alone doctors were aware of or well equipped to treat. While there have been strides in recognition, it still remains a conundrum for many...

Up to 10% of women and girls worldwide have polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), a complex hormonal disorder for which there is no cure. If left untreated PCOS can be a precursor to many life threatening conditions including type II diabetes, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, stroke and kidney problems. This means PCOS contributes to some of the leading causes of death and disability in women today.


There are still many unanswered questions. While there are many medical and physical implications with this syndrome the psychological stigmas such as being overweight, excess body hair, acne and infertility leave the most long lasting impressions on many women living with this condition today.. With more awareness and teaming with media outlets like yours, we can change perceptions of who these women are, not simply lazy women who do not take care of themselves but, women who are battling the complications associated with this syndrome every day.

Christmas Wishlist Idea

I made a makeup purchase from QVC the other day and I found a pretty good deal! I purchased the Tarte Bow & Go holiday set and found that they have the Tria at home laser remover now! I first hear about it from PCOS Diva's review on it and have been wanting to try it. Since I've started taking classes again I can't afford it, but what I love about QVC is that they offer easy pay! Instead of paying $449 (plus $12.47 shipping & handling) you can try it for three payments of $149.66!

Just like Sephora, they have a great return policy! From their website:
QVC makes Holiday Gift Returns easy! Any holiday gift you purchase now through December 23, 2013 at Noon ET can be returned for any reason for a full refund including original S&H until January 31, 2014. Shop with confidence.

To save even more go to Ebates first! I saw the commercials and had heard women talking about it on YouTube, so I decided to try it. I signed up, made first purchase, and received my gift card in the mail! To use it all you have to do is go to the Ebates website, search to see if the site you're going to shop at is on their list, click on it, and then start shopping! I usually use it when I shop from Sephora, Ulta, Lane Bryant, or Amazon, but there are a ton of websites on there! Each site has a certain percentage that you save and they keep up with it and send you a check every quarter. It adds up quickly! Especially when you're doing Christmas shopping online! lol

Music Monday: The Civil Wars "Kingdom Come"

I loved The Civil Wars! I wish they were still together! Anyway, when I listened to The Hunger Games soundtrack for the first time I was very happy to hear them on the cd. I know that struggling with PCOS and The Hunger Games don't have anything to do with each other, but I can see bits and pieces in this song. 

Run, run, run away
Buy yourself another day
A cold wind's whispering
Secrets in your ear
So low only you can hear

Run, run, run and hide
Somewhere no one else can find
Tall trees bend and lean pointing where to go
Where you will still be all alone

Don't you fret my dear
It'll all be over soon
I'll be waiting here
For you

Run fast if you can
No one has to understand
Fly high across the sky from here to kingdom come
Fall back down to where you're from

Don't you fret, my dear
It'll all be over soon
I'll be waiting here for you
For you, for you

Don't you fret, my dear
(Don't you fret, my dear)
It'll all be over soon
(It'll all be over soon)
I'll be waiting here

Don't you fret, my dear
It'll be over soon
I'll be waiting here
For you, for you, for you

Run, run, run away
Run, run, run away

My Munchies!

For the past month I have changed my eating habits. No more Dr. Pepper, sweet tea, fried food, or simple carbs. Now it's water, fruit and veggies, poultry, fish, and whole grains. This is what I've been munching on here lately!

Belvita breakfast cookies (Golden Oat), banana, and 1% Milk
Egg Beaters with turkey sausage

Apple with natural peanut butter
Kind bars
Chobani Greek yogurt
Almonds and dried fruit (raisins or apricots)
Dove dark chocolate bar with almonds (I don't eat this in one sitting. I'll break the bar into three pieces and eat them throughout the week)

Salad - baby spinach, carrots, cherry tomatoes, turkey, Parmesan cheese, a couple of croutons, and Annie's Natural Cowgirl ranch dressing.
Turkey wrap with baby spinach, cherry tomatoes, Annie's ranch dressing, on a wheat wrap.
Grilled Chicken Ranch salad from McDonald's
Tuna salad

Spaghetti - Whole wheat noodles, spaghetti sauce, chicken, garlic, fresh mushrooms, and bell pepper from my dad's garden. This was so good!
Flounder fillets with garlic, pepper, Italian spices, and a little fish breading. And individual sized from brussel sprouts with butter that you cook in the microwave
Kentucky Grilled Chicken from KFC
Turkey burger on a whole wheat bun with a sweet potato and zucchini
