10.Natural Sweeteners such as Coconut Sugar, Honey, Maple Syrup, Stevia and Blackstrap Molasses to name a few STILL have sugar in them! Don't be fooled by the word natural - this doesn't mean because it's natural you can have as much as you'd like. Your body still has to process that sugar and the same effect happen within your body when you eat it. One teaspoon of honey has 5 grams of sugar, and my guess is you use a little more than one teaspoon on top of your oats or in your daily smoothie!?! And although all these Natural Sweeteners do have many things good for you and may be called superfoods - just be conscious that the bad effects of the sugar might out the way the other benefits you can get from these Natural Sweeteners.

Working out at 273 lbs was hard Working out st 200lbs was hard Working out at 185 lbs was hard Working out 5 weeks pregnant was hard (believe it or not!) Working out after a miscarriage is hard - The point is it’s never easier But as you take care of yourself over time you find the energy You love the endorphins and challenging yourself - I mean I still hate cardio days And every time I have to take a break I get mad But it is 100% worth it to push myself To find what I can do To change my body To take care of myself To find a release for my sadness and for my anxiety and for my frustration - Exercise is NEVER easy Changing your life is NEVER easy But it is so worth it
Beachbody has a new program coming out called 80 Day Obsession. It is going to be 80 days of different workouts each day with using timed nutrition. This will take all the guesswork out of it….it’s like having a personal trainer, but for a lot less! I’m excited to not be bored with my workouts! . But, truth be told, I’m not sure this is a good fit for everyone. I became a coach because I was able to fit health into my life, feel good about myself, and feel healthy WITHOUT obsessing about it and I wanted this for others. . But the word obsession…..not about the scale, food, number on your jeans, size of your belly or thighs, or a quick fix. That’s NOT what I’m about. . But I am obsessed with overall wellness and health, health education, making yourself a priority so you can serve others, finding a long term solution, being a better version of yourself, overcoming emotional eating issues, but all in a healthy manner with a community of support….because I have seen it change the lives of MANY! . This is why I can promote this program, or find another one that can fit into your life. My overall philosophy is that health should COMPLIMENT your life, but never CONTROL your life. With New Year’s goals right around the corner, there is a program for EVERY level of fitness that can compliment your life and get you feeling your best, but NOT obsessed. 80 Day Obsession just might be the right program for your goals. I’d love if you want to do it alongside me with a non-obsessive approach! If you are interested in learning more, shoot me a message and we can chat about your goals!
"In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. 1 Peter 1:6 Though these trials may be painful and heart-breaking, they cannot compare to the wonderful joy that lies ahead! So be truly glad, knowing that we know the God who's reality is the impossible, who is always working for our good and His purpose and who ALWAYS keeps His promises! #iwillpraiseyouinthevalley #godisfaithful #faith #bejoyfulinhope #standingonthepromises #theheartofhannah #infertility #infertilitysisters #infertilitysupport #ttc #ttcsupport #ttccommunity #ttctribe #overcominginfertility #blessingsinbrokenness #womenoffaith #hope #womenofgod #infertilitywarrior #iamHis
Healthy doesn’t have to be hard. It also doesn’t have to be bland. Whipped this up in under 30 minutes and it is SO good leftover. 🙌🏼 Recipe on my FB Page 😘
Brekkie amongst packing lunch& dinner for the next few days. Grated beet, cauliflower, cabbage & carrot fried up in butter - 2 eggs, avo & berries on the side. Again, this only took me less than 15 mins to make from frig to plate - 2 pans to cook in - SIMPLES - Let's see your #gratedvegbrekkie (it's a thing now 😜)
14.12.17 I will not obsess over things I cannot control.
There are a lot of holiday gatherings! Friends holiday parties, the office gathering, family Christmas dinners (x10), New Year’s parties…and they are all packed into ONE month. You don’t even have time to recover from one before you are thrusted into another. Therefore for your own sanity and emotional well-being, you need to take care of yourself. So go shopping! Read a book! Or burn off some steam in the gym. Maybe even take a “mental health day” from work and curl up on the couch binge watching your favorite TV show while eating pizza and a box of cookies! Whatever it is you can do to treat yourself, do it! Especially if you like to take a relaxing bath! Because did you know soaking in a hot bath 2-3 times a week with Epsom salt will help draw out the toxins, as well as lower stress-related hormones and balance your pH levels? Therefore making Epsom salt baths especially beneficial for woman suffering from infertility and PCOS? So what are you waiting for! Go give yourself a little compassion today!
Love this! There doesn’t seem to be many bad boys partnered to those on this forum 😉 Thank goodness for our sweet loved ones, who hold us up, put up with our moods and love us unconditionally come what may. If you’ve got to the end of the year still together and strong be proud of yourselves. This crazy journey puts huge pressure on relationships. If u haven’t told them for a while that they are amazing, give them an extra big squeeze today and tell them they rock!

I always worry that I'm being punished for something I have done in the past. I know it's irrational but 🤷🏼‍♀️ #ttc #ttcover30 #ttcsupport #infertility #infertilityjourney #infertilitysucks #clomid #clomid50mg
What is the hardest thing you’ve ever experienced in your life? 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻 comment below and Do you ever feel like you’ve been through enough already? - Like I get it universe! I’m meant to be strong But after a while it feels like a bad joke or a bad episode of a Shonda Rhymes tv show - 1/4 women are sexually assaulted 1/4 women experience early miscarriage 1% of people in the US has trichotillomania It feels like a lot that all of that would wind up in one person And trust me I know that there are others with MORE pain and with even worse statistics People who have lost homes People who are born with less People facing unknown diseases that only 0.01% of people get etc. - And here’s the thing I believe in positivity and not playing the victim I believe that it’s about growing through what we go through I don’t know that I believe everything happens for a reason but I do believe that WE find reasoning out of what happens I do believe we wind up on the right path for us if we keep our heads up and keep moving forward I don’t know that I believe “we aren’t given more than we can handle” I believe we do our best to handle what we’re given And over time, we are able to handle life because our strength grows - I am grateful that I’ve been through what I have so I can be a fierce advocate and help others who have been through the same things So I can shed light on some things that people are too afraid to talk about - Life is hard Adulting is hard Sharing what you’ve been through can be therapeutic for you and others Connecting and being part of a community of women who get you can help you grow and learn and give you strength - While I don’t believe the other cliches I do believe that it doesn’t get easier, you get stronger. So whatever you’ve been through I’m glad you’re stronger because of it even if you don’t feel it.
You. Are. Enough.✨ . . . Maybe you need the reminder. Maybe a friend does. ❤️ don’t ever forget how beautiful & amazing you are.
Fert Check 🐣 This morning this 41 year old patient had 2 normal fertilized eggs and 1 abnormal fertilized egg. A 1pn (1 pronuclei) demonstrates that only 1 of 2 parts to the activation process have occurred. In this case given its ICSI, the egg probably thinks that the injection of the sperm was “the insemination moment” and began the next process. This means likely that the sperm inside did not activate and as such only 1pn is seen Nevertheless we will keep the 3rd embryo to see if clevage occurs and decide from there but already we will keep it separate from the other 2. This patient wants Day 2 ET, in the body as quick as we can, as they prefer to have them inside where they can not think about the next steps. After explaining the pro’s and con’s of Day 5 ET, they still want Day 2. Fair enough, its their choice. Fingers crossed to them. Its their 2nd cycle, they had a blast last time ET, she has a low AMH so egg numbers are usually in the 2-3-4’s.

TTC Sisters! I need some advice. I’ve been using the glow app to track everything but I’m not really feeling it. The last two cycles it’s been completely wrong even though I’ve put all my info in correctly. What app is everyone else using? I’m tired of fighting with this one. Help! 😩
Today's workout was great and I am shaking from all the strength moves. But it is an exciting day in my world today, the 80 Day Obsession bundles are available, and my sister finds out what she is having today. So I took a break from chating with some women who want to be part of am exclusive test group with the creator herself to get my sweat on. You guys these test groups only ever happen with people who are picked by corporate and now is your chance to get in and be part of beachbody history. . . . . #girlmom #girlmum #sahm #dogmom #disneymom #disneylife #wifey #dogmum #chocoholic #ttcsisters #tryingtogetpregnant #walkingdead #toddlermum #mumlife #momlife #toddlermom #redhair #postpartum #colorfulsprinkles #ttcsupport #mumof1 #momtipsandtricks #ttccommunity #disneynerd #UK #married #foodie #ttc #family #ttcjourney
11:11 💫 Started to make a wish, but I’ve got all I need. 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦
Thankful Thursday! I’m not gonna to lie. It’s been a physically and emotional draining week. A brutal stomach flu. Sleepless nights due to insomnia. Increased stress for a variety of reasons. But, I am surrounded by love. Love has pulled me through. And, exercise has been a great stress reliever. I always use Thursday as a time to say thank you. To reflect & find gratitude. Today, I’m beyond thankful after many years of infertility, that, we were successful with some of our fertility treatments. I’m thankful for the power of prayers, science, medicine, my team of doctors & nurses, and, my loyal friends and family who have supported me along the way. I’m thankful for a healthy, essentially uneventful pregnancy so far. I’m thankful for this sweet little boy growing in my belly. Hard to believe he’ll be here in just two short months. It’s always important to stop for a minute and reflect on your life. Find gratitude. Be thankful... No matter if it’s something big or small. What are YOU thankful for today? . . . . . #thankful #thursday #blessed #grateful #infertility #ivf #ttc #infertilitysucks #ttccommunity #ttcsisters #fertility #ttcjourney #infertilityjourney #ivfjourney #infertilitysupport #infertilityawareness #pregnancy #baby #iui #ivfsisters #infertilitysisters #health #ivfsuccess #love #ttcsupport #life #pregnant #family #weightloss #infertilitywarrior
Well...I got my estradiol levels back last night and they were nowhere near where we expected them to be. 108. 👎🏼 Normally they would be anywhere from 200-300 PER mature follicle. My level should have been near 1,000 in a “normal” cycle. The nurse knew I was instantly discouraged and reminded me to not count myself out just yet. Being on letrozole (Femara) actually suppresses estradiol production. Some clinics won’t take estradiol levels because they will automatically be artificially lowered. Their main goal is to make sure the follicles are growing, which mine definitely are! Knowing we seen one follicle containing an egg is keeping my hopes up. I now know why the nurses were so curious if I was uncomfortable at my last appointment. OUCH!! Follicles grow approximately 2mm/day until ovulation. If my appointment was on Tuesday and I was measuring 5 follies 19-23mm, I can only imagine the size of them today! 😧 I’m feeling every single one of them 😬 The HCG trigger injection will also help boost maturity of follicles, giving my estradiol a bit of a boost before ovulation. I wish I could have my estradiol retaken today just to give me peace of mind. #infertilitysucks #support #nevergivingup #holdingontohope #havefaith #warriors #ttcsisters #ttccommunity #hope #estradiol #ttcsupport #babydust #infertility #ttc #ttcbaby1 #ttcjourney #infertilityjourney #letrozole #femara #letrozolecycle #femaracycle #determination #ttcourmiracle #onedayatatime #growgrowgrow #follicles #endometriosis #endometriosiswarrior #endometriosisawareness #endowarrior

🍍💗💙🍍This was taken one year ago! So much can change in one year! It shocks me sometimes!! This is my dear friend and #ttcsister Keri @journey2bebegogo we met on Instagram and then got partnered up for a Christmas gift exchange. Shawn and I soon planned a trip to Montreal and Keri and I got to meet in person and exchange gifts. We have supported each other over the past year. I didn't know it but when this photo was taken I was pregnant. Keri supported me after our miscarriage and really helped change my life and healing. Her gift was the #fiveminutejournal and I used it every single day and it dramatically changed my outlook and gratitude for life. I don't know where I would be with out that gift! We found out we were pregnant and our due dates were 10 days apart! How amazing is that! I am so happy we got to walk this journey with each other's inspiration, motivation and encouragement. Both of us used positive vibes to fuel our fires and strive to be amazing mothers. Through infertility, pregnancy and motherhood we are there for one another. That is the beauty of the #ttccommunity it really connects woman and creates beautiful friendships. Even though we are on the total opposite ends of the country the love and support is there and it is strong! And I am so excited for our babies to meet up and become little buddies! Sending you a world of blessings love and light my wonderful friend #ttcsistersareawesome #ttcchristmasexchange #ayearspentgrowing #ttcsupport #unexplainedinfertility #pregnantafterinfertility #dontgiveup #wegotthismama
《Marriage》= Two completely different people joining together to be better and change the world in the space they have been given. . Let's focus today on the completely different part... 🦌my husband is an avid hunter and outdoorsman, who grew up in a family of boys with a father who was a gunsmith... I didn't grow up like this at all... 🌵I grew up in a family of girls that loved to shop, go on fun family vacations that included educational aspects, and no weapons in the home. 💕My husband and I have introduced each other to what we value and we both are better because of it. We now have 2 girls that are educated, love to shop, and can handle a rifle better than most adults and I have my CHL. . Although I don't like hunting, I have been hunting with him and support my husband's love for it. This is how he gets refreshed. When we love someone who is different than us, we love them the way they need to be loved . 🦌+🌵=💕 . #lifecoach #dreamcoach #couplescoach #fertilitycoach #fertilitysupportcoach #marriage #surrogate #birthingadream #ttcsupport #ttc #ttccommunity #infertility #infertilityawareness #faith #family #fertility #blog #blogling #christianblogger #lifeasasurrogate #momlife #mompreneur #womenpreneur #surrogacy #secondaryinfertility #adoption #yourangelwings
Got my workout in this morning thanks to my two favorite trainers 💕💪🏽
Shots of water with a chaser of embryo transfer. Thursdays were so different 5 years ago.
CONFESSION: I used to skip stretching 🙆🏼‍♀️ Yep. Every. Single. Time. I used to think it was a waste of my time 😑 That was until... I started having pain 😣 A few years ago I just couldn’t figure out why I was ☝🏼 ALWAYS sore and ✌🏼 why I wasn’t getting much better at the moves! Well, insert my lovely hubby & he reminded me just how IMPORTANT stretching is for our body! 🙌🏼 So, even though I still dislike it 😂 I do it. Do you skip stretching too?
I think today is CD1 but period keeps stopping and starting. All really weird. Since being on clomid and tamoxifen my periods have just been getting shorter and shorter and lighter and lighter. Did anyone else find this? TMI but it starts in the morning a little bit and then just stops for the rest of the day. I would have loved this when I was a teenager! But now it's really concerning me. I'm meant to be taking double the dose of tamoxifen tomorrow as the last lot didn't work according to day 21 bloods. Was only 19.4. I'm not sure if I want to take them or not. Any advice welcome. Thank you. #tryingtobecomemum #infertility #infertilitysucks #infertilitywarrior #infertilityjourney #infertilityawareness #infertilitycommunity #infertilitysupport #infertilitysisters #ttc #ttcuk #ttcsucks #ttcsisters #ttcjourney #ttccommunity #ttcsupport #ttcawareness

9. There are at least 61 different names the food producers have come up with to try and trick us on the nutrient labels. Corn syrup or high-fructose corn syrup, Dextrose or crystal dextrose, Fructose, Maltose, Lactose, Sucrose, Glucose, Evaporated cane juice or fruit juice, Caramel, Carob syrup, Brown sugar, Raw sugar, Dextrin and maltodextrin, Rice Syrup, Molasses, Evaporated corn sweetener, Confectioner’s powdered sugar, Agave nectar, Other fruit nectars (for example, pear nectar), Cane crystal, Cane sugar, Corn Sweetener, Crystalline Fructose, Dextrose, Fruit juice concentrates, Honey, Invert sugar, Lactose, Maltose, Malt syrup, Molasses, Raw sugar, Sucrose and Syrup. Using a name for sugar that the consumer might not be aware of, makes it easier to skim over a long ingredient name in a hurry during a rushed shop and inadvertently take in more sugar than you want to.
