Hormone Hell

There have been times in my past where I truly believed I was living in hell with my hormones…

img_4649

Heck there are times I still feel that way…lol…

I started experiencing wonky-ness with my cycles early on…..by the time I was in the military my hormones, cycles, health was so wacky I had to be on bedrest usually the first 2 days of my period.

Because the military did not like this…..well they pretty much bullied me into getting on to the pill…..even though I was morally apposed to it…..I didn’t know what else to do.  I felt stuck…..I felt conflicted.

I am so grateful that today there is such amazing info out there for young girls and women to be empowered on why the PILL is PHYSICALLY unhealthy……EMOTIONALLY unhealthy…..AND SPIRITUALLY unhealthy!

I see my beautiful daughter and see how her hormones are looking like they are similar to mine…..BUT……the difference is she has tools and support that I didn’t have.  She is able to recognize how her nutrition, exercise, sleep, stress, toxic load….and so much more effects her cycles.

We as women have enough to deal with….especially if you are challenged with any body distortions and food fears…..we don’t need our hormones to add to the HELL!

Instead we want to welcome our hormones…say HELLO BEAUTIFUL YOU!

Because those hormones can actually play into the mental chatter that can contribute to the body distortions and food fears!

What is one thing you can do today to empower your hormone health….to want to say HELLO to them rather than “ah hell”…..!?

Sit with this….pray about it….journal about it…..tap about it…..then oil up!!!

Many blessings and hugs always,

Kelly 🙂

Your Temple: Is it loved?

I’m tired! How about you!? LOL….

It’s only the first month of the year and honestly I feel like I have already ran a marathon….or that I am training for one!

Yet if I think about it…I AM!  I am training for the best race…the best marathon…..the marathon of life!

And that means I SHOW UP each day!  I assess what is really important for that day and what do I NOT need to overwhelm myself with!?

How many of us allow chatter in our heads….chatter like:

  • You’re not good enough!
  • You have already failed at your new years resolution
  • You’re not pretty enough!
  • You’re not thin enough!
  • you’re not smart enough!

It’s all lies!

Just because some of what I am doing isn’t measurable by others….just because some of what I am doing and preparing for doesn’t serve some and their goals…..doesn’t mean it’s not serving those who I am suppose to be serving…..

I had a huge come to Jesus moment because I was finding myself falling into the trap of feeling like I wasn’t meeting the expectations of some people in my life.  I was feeling the need to please and that if I didn’t please them then I wasn’t worthy of them.  Or that I wasn’t really showing up big for life.  Or that I wasn’t serious about what I do!

I had to call a BS on that to myself…..it had me realize that it is similar to my journey with dysmorphia and probably connected….how I can easily allow the chatter to consume me if I am not careful.

I can start comparing myself to others on social media.  I could allow myself to fall into thinking how could I provide the coaching and education I provide like “so and so”……

Or I could even find myself thinking that who could possibly want to learn from me when I am still learning!

BUT…..I DONT FALL FOR THAT TRAP ANYMORE!  NO….I am not perfect…..but I have amazing and powerful tools in my arsenal now.  And God keeps equipping me!

Each day I am amazed at how much He loves us….loves me….and I only need to focus on Him.

Each day I need to quiet the chatter and only listen to HIM!

And Each day I need to remember I am amazing and I AM SHOWING UP BIG….even if no one else sees it….GOD SEES IT!  He knows what He has called me to do…..and even if everyone else thinks I am crazy or doesn’t understand it….that’s okay!

And…..this is a big AND…..and even if these “others” really do think I am playing small, I am not doing all I can do, that I am a “hobbyist” with my mission, my life…….that’s okay!

BECAUSE…..I KNOW THE TRUTH!!!  I KNOW I AM WORTH IT!

I KNOW I AM PLAYING BIG THE WAY HE HAS CALLED ME TO PLAY…..I AM A LEADER FOR HIM…..not for anyone or anything else!!!

How are you showing up this year?

Have you been allowing the chatter to interfere with your conversations with God!?  Thus interfering with WHO YOU ARE!!!

Sit with this….pray about it……journal…..tap…..and oil up!

As always….lots of prayers and blessings sent your way dear one!

I DO: Know I’m beautiful!

24 years ago I said “I Do”……

Marriage isn’t always the easiest thing…..we all know this….

But because of sooo many tools God gifts us with…I am able to try and practice being the best version of myself with and for my husband!

One of the many gifts has been doTERRAs precious oils….

These oils support me in so many ways….physically….mentally….emotionally!!!

And we all know relationships can be very emotional 😭🤗😇😘!!!!

Today I’m going to use Beautiful oil even more than usual….because it will stir with in me and remind me how beautiful my husband finds me!!!

He tells me all the time….🥰…..

I know this to be a truth….just like each of you are sooo amazingly beautiful….but because of the mental disconnect with dysmorphia…..I don’t always believe it!

Beautiful oil doesn’t let me forget it…it transforms the lies into truth!!!!

What lies do you allow the enemy to whisper in your ear?!

How can you combat his lies with the truth?!

Sit with this…..pray about it…journal….tap….and oil up!!!

2019: His will or mine?

I’ve been taking some much needed self care time!

Time to reflect….ponder…and dream!!!

I’ve been filling up journal pages faster than I can write…..so when I’m not writing on paper I’m writing in my head!

Some of what I’ve been writing and reflecting on is 2019….

How do I hope to be the best version of myself?

How do I plan on reaching some pretty big goals?!

And how do I plan on making sure I’m constantly surrendering to His will and not mine?

I don’t have all the answers or thoughts written out yet….but that’s what I’ve been up to the last two weeks and well I plan on continuing through this month to get laser focused on the essentials of a truly WHOLE-life-giving 2019!

Have you set your 2019 goals?

Have you taken the time to unplug from all distractions so you can be alone with the Lord and hear His thoughts for you?!

How can you live an authentic, transforming 2019?!

Sit…pray….tap….and oil up!!

Surprises on Saturday!

I absolutely love it when I am getting ready to plan out my Christmas shopping list and I receive amazing emails with great deals!!

Some years I am in a shop shop shop sort of mood….other years I am in a DIY mood….and there are some years I am just about gift cards!!!  LOL….

This year I have been looking at some of my oils and goodies and thinking I really want to create some specialized goody bags and home made things with the oils.

img_3937

I’m thinking bath salts, seasoned salts, lip balms, teas, baked goods, and so much more!

Well this morning I opened my email and saw that doTERRA has brought us their amazing BOGO deals again!!

This kicks off on MONDAY :)!!!

What’s super exciting is these deals are open to everyone but each day it is for 24-hours only and then a new special is released.

So this upcoming week with each BOGO…..I will share with you how I use that oil in my home and for my family’s whole health!  I will even share some great gift giving ideas for that day’s BOGO!

If you don’t already have a doTERRA account now is truly the time to maximize on some great deals!

I will serve you and care for you!

Okay enough about BOGO’S now lets remember Thanksgiving is just 5 days away!!!

img_3935

What are you feeling most thankful about today!? 

I am feeling super grateful for family.  My mom texted me last night.  It said “keep dad in prayers, at hospital, water on heart.”

Now I am not a worrier….but it wasn’t a text I could just say “okay”…..and go to bed!  Nope I asked if I could call….she said yes.

We visited…..I even got to visit with my dad……and all was good.  I was able to go to sleep knowing all was truly okay.   But it did have me reflect…..time is too fragile and too precious to take for granted.

I don’t take time and life for granted, but I know I can get caught up in the passion of living my life with my family and friends locally that I can be a “out of sight out of mind” sort of person.

This text and phone call also had me reflect on how some of my healing, health journey means I need to not avoid conversations or questions that truly need to be said or asked.

So I am Thankful for prompts like last night to remind me time is precious; don’t waste or avoid saying and doing the things that are super important!

What are you thankful for?!

Sit…..pray……journal…..tap and oil up!!

Blessings,

Kelly 😉

 

Fertile Friday

At the age of 15 I started to experience severe pains in my lower abdomen for 1 -2 days about every 40-50 days.

By the time I was 20 my cycles never were consistent.  They could be 20 days but usually 38-45 days.  There were many times that they were 60-70 days.

I had/have PCOS and didn’t know it.

Over 20 years ago there wasn’t much out there on PCOS.

img_3925

The answers to women were to mask the pain by being put on the pill.  But all this did was create an unnatural environment within our body.  It wasn’t working with the nature, the beauty of how we were made.  How God designed us.

I knew my body was try to tell me something but I didn’t know what.  I knew the pill was not the answer but being in the military and the severity of my cramps getting worse and worse and my need to be in bed during the first 2-4 days of my cycles, sometimes more…..well the military wasn’t going to have it.  So the pressure was put on me to be on the pill.

So with great counsel, reflection, and prayer……I gave into the pressure.

This led me on a 5 year journey of my fertility being suppressed…..ignored……disrespected……and neglected.

You see the PCOS was actually my body telling me how to heal it…..how to help it……but the pill muzzled it.

When my husband decided to convert to Catholicism the priest who was his adviser was an amazing teacher and mentor.  In the course of my husband’s learning the beauty of Catholicism this priest and I had amazing conversations about the beauty of our sexuality.

It came up about my health issues and how/why I was on the pill.  I also expressed how things were actually getting worse even with being on the pill.  Hindsight my body was try to speak out over the muzzle of the pill.

This wise amazing priest asked me if he could help me learn a way to elevate the pain without the pill would I be open to try?

I was absolutely in favor of this!

He introduced me to several different natural family planning methods.  They each tracked and monitored my fertility and hormonal health in different ways.

I had no idea that NFP was about more than just knowing when you should or shouldn’t have intercourse as a married couple.  I learned during that time how I was able to monitor my hormones to see exactly what was going on.  To understand that there is a true beautiful dance with the two main hormones of estrogen and progesterone and when they are not in harmony the whole body gets out of whack.

I also learned how certain foods trigger things like PCOS.

I learned through this process just how beautiful our fertility is…..how God designed our cycles to actually be protective and restorative for us.  As well as life giving…..not only physically but spiritually as well.

I learned that monitoring our fertility isn’t just for couples to communicate if they want to achieve or avoid a pregnancy it is also for truly monitoring our physical health……therefore it is something that all young girls should chart as soon as they start their menses.  It teaches us an appreciation for our body and how to protect it and honor it.

So the pain did become less and in the process of this my husband and I started to actively try to conceive.  When it didn’t just happen month after month…..we then knew there was more to this….

Again this is where the method we were using became the most amazing blessing……since we were using a method that was me monitoring my cervical mucus…..we were able to discover I was estrogen dominant……which allowed us to understand that I probably was also insulin resistant…..which meant my diet as well as my DNA was a factor……we were able to start connecting the dots…..there were more dots to connect that we didn’t know to connect until years later.

In the process of me falling in love with this fertility charting method system I decided to become a practitioner for a short period of time.  I was able to teach and guide other couples to learn about monitoring their cycles.  To empower them to make that conscious decision of when they are ovulating to either engage or abstain from sex depending on the place they were at in their life journey.

Fertility tracking created communication in a way that was deeper and more rewarding not only for me and my husband but for all the couples I taught.  And for all the couples who continue to learn about it.

What I learned with my PCOS is that grains, diary, and sugar are truly triggers.  Stress is a huge trigger.

With PCOS we tend to be deficient in certain essential minerals and vitamins so supplementing is a must.

I’m at a different stage now with my fertility……I had to have a hysterectomy several years back due to the discovery after another miscarriage that my PCOS wasn’t the only thing that had been causing my infertility but that I had a severely bicornate uterus.  There was also a lot of scar tissue inside and outside of my uterus due to the ruptured cysts of PCOS and scar tissue because of an emergency appendix removal when I was 15!

The doctor I had after my miscarriage was truly surprised I had even been able to carry my only daughter to full term.  Hindsight again is always so beautiful because it explained so much of why that pregnancy had so many complications.

The problem with my uterus now was that it was becoming diseased, it was doing things, and experiencing things that were not natural and causing much more havoc than my PCOS ever did.

So now I was at a dilemma of how do I monitor my hormones without a period?

So whether a woman naturally goes into menopause or has had to enter into it prematurely there are ways we can monitor.

We still do have some cervical mucus….we can monitor it……charting even how we are “feeling” can help give indicators, what we are craving……and taking our temp is super helpful…..

Ironically 20 years ago taking my temp wasn’t helpful…..but I now know why (another amazing hindsight moment)……our thyroid is also responsible for our temp……so if our thyroid is off then our temp is going to be off…..

So monitoring your fertility also helps you monitor your thyroid!!!

I saw the beauty and power in this knowledge so many years ago…..so much so that I knew when my daughter entered into menses several years back I started her charting……

I love watching her be empowered with the beauty and knowledge of understanding her body’s physical and spiritual needs.  I love how she is able to anticipate when her cycle is going to start and know how to honor it with self care and love.

I love how she recognizes the spiritual component to her fertility which deepens her love and respect for her body and the theology that it is telling us!

She has recently been showing signs that PCOS could be in her present or future……but since she is very aware of what can contribute to it and turn those genes on……she is very consciences of avoiding grains, dairy, and sugar.  She uses lots of ClaryCalm…..one of her favorite oils for her cycle time……she even combines certain oils to create a heating pad type of effect on her gut area when we can’t be at the house with a heat pad.  There are certain supplements she uses that she knows help keep her body balanced.

Do you have challenges with your fertility?

Would you like to learn more about the beauty of charting your cycles?

There are so many great resources, apps, books, and educators to help with all of this.

I have included some great links throughout this post.  They are amazing resources for you to learn more!!!
