Day 1

Well day one is almost over and I did it! I kept to the plain of low gi, low carb, gluten and dairy free. I’m so proud of myself! It may be the first step all over again but I feel ready to stick to this whereas last time it was a count down to when I could have something I wasn’t meant too. I want to do this for me, not just to have a baby, even tho that’s the main reason, I know want it for me.

 

Tomorrow is the day

Starting tomorrow I back to being gluten & dairy free, low carb, low gi! after cheating for weeks I actually feel horrible and just want that healthy feeling I had a few months ago when I was exercising, eating properly. I’ve found I cant have cheat days because my brain just goes well you might as well have something else because the day is gone.
Monday 14th July is the day I make this work and count! I really want a baby now and this is the only way that’s gonna help with that!

Part 1 of a couple

As another day slowly comes to an end. I thought I might share Our story thus far. Just to give a little more insight into our lives and what we have been through. We have been together 9 years so I might just do it over the next few days. Now I’m not much of a writer,  I tend to ramble and spelling may sometimes be a hit and a miss, But this is our story and I’m pretty proud of what we have achieved to get to this point in time.

It all started when we were both 19, it was just a few short months before my 20 birthday and I was once again living at home. I was in a horrible place emotionally, I was going out every weekend, drinking it away and during the week with no job I was chatting on yahoo chat rooms.  I had made a few good ‘friends’. I had been chatting to them and decided to change rooms for a bit and clicked a music chat (it’s where I mostly chatted) Not long after I had signed in my husband did as well. There was only a couple of people logged on at the time, so I decided to talk to him.  He was pretty chatty and flirty, full of confidence. I later found out that he was only online because he had beat a game and was pretty chuffed with himself and he would normally be at work at that time but had quit his job.

We pretty much hit it off there and then. We chatted for hours and hours. The more we chatted the more I saw the light at the end of a very dark tunnel that I had been stuck in for about a year. 2 months into chatting, He asked me out. We had never met in person, but I knew that he was the one!

That’s all for now.

What’s on the menu tonight

My lovely husband is cooking dinner as I type. Yay I don’t have to cook! Not that he doesn’t cook at all but since we have started on a gluten-free, dairy free paleo diet, I have been in charge of doing most of the cooking. New recipes, starting from scratch is not quite his thing. Even tho he can cook. Not using packet mixes like we used to use has thrown him for a loop. He is slowly learning how to make different recipes and this is one of his favourites to make.

Paleo Chicken tenders with honey mustard sauce and sweet potato fries as a treat.

    • 500 grams boneless and skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips
    • 1 cup almond flour
    • 1 egg
    • 3/4 tsp paprika
    • 1/2 tsp cumin
    • 1/2 tsp onion powder
    • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
    • Salt and pepper
Honey Mustard Sauce
  • 5 tbs raw honey
  • 2 tbs Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbs apple cider vinegar

Cheating just a little bit frozen packet of sweet potato fries – cook in oven while cooking chicken

Instructions

  1. Cut the chicken into strips
  2. Whisk egg and set to the side
  3. In a bowl, combine the almond flour and the spices
  4. Take each piece of chicken, dip into the egg then into the seasoned flour
  5. Make sure all the pieces are well coated
  6. Heat fry pan add your choice of oil – coconut or avocado or olive oil
  7. Cook chicken in fry pan until cooked. Once cooked place chicken aside
  8. In a small bowl whisk together the honey, mustard and apple cider vinegar – it’s that easy!
  9. Easy and delicious!!

The very first post of many more to come

Hi anybody out there?

 After years of saying I’m going to do something about my PCOS,  I finally reached out to another blogger and her insight of what I could do to help my infertility and other annoying symptoms that come along with PCOS.  I not only found helpful tips and recipes but a community of Ladies dealing with the same issues. 

It is a Big Thanks to them for being such an inspiration to lose the extra weight and get on track for a healthier life style that I know now my body was craving.  I have decided to write down everything that I experience on the way to creating a healthy me and hopefully a little family for me and my husband.

So from the positive to the negative and all things in between I hope if you are reading this  that I may just help you to find what you need to help yourself.
