Healthy or Convenience

Good Morning!!!

I’m sure at the time I’m writing this it’s probably bed time for most of you. But I had to get a post down for the day. Just incase you’re not aware, many times I only write if I have something to write about. As some may know a lot of my posts have something to do with what I’m experiencing at the time. So this will be no different.

This is something hard for me to talk about, because I feel that it’s letting you know a little bit too much about me. But I figure I’ll go ahead and get it off my chest. Let me start of by saying,” I’ve always been a big girl. At one point in time I use to be into health. But for the most part that has changed in the past couple of years. I guess you could say, “I allowed my emotions to get the better of me. So naturally like most people I allowed the way I felt to lead me.

This was not a good thing, for obvious reasons. Me allowing my emotions to dictate the way I feel or felt doesn’t keep me in a mind frame of being accountable for everything I do and consume. As a result I allowed myself to go crazy with the eating and the cold foods and drinks.

If I’m honest my diet consists of about 85% to 90% processed food….. Wow!! I never really thought about how much processed food I eat. That’s mind blowing. I’m just coming to the realization now that I eat way too much junk.

Well I’m sure you’re trying to figure out why I’m mentioning this. It’s simple really. I’m bringing this to light because a lot of women these days are experiencing infertilely. Many of them don’t realize it’s the food they eat that play a huge part in why they’re not able to conceive.

I remember reading a study years back, about the fertility difference in women who eat natural food appose to  women who eat a diet high in processed foods. Naturally the women who ate natural foods most of the time were the ones with a higher fertility rate. As for the women eating the processed food, they’re fertility was cut in half . What’s sad is, it wasn’t a 100% to begin with.

If I can find the study I’ll make sure to leave a link.

This isn’t the same study from so many years back, but it is something you can read to get a better understanding.

How does this affect me?

Well at the current time I’ve been feeling all over the place. Having to deal with imbalances, menstrual problems, mood swings and the list goes on. I can not fully explain what I’ve experienced waiting for my period to come every month. This puts the stress level at even a higher high because my mother wants grand babies, and I’m at an age were that could easily not be possible at anytime. As for me, I’m not sure if I want any children. I feel like that ship has sailed. Also mentally and financially I’m in no place to have children at the current time.

The only thing I’m going to say is, “if God sees it fit to provide me with a child, I will love and do every and anything I can for that child. The other thing is I don’t know how it’s gonna happen, because I have taken the longest time from dating in my whole adult life.

I thought it was time I take some time for myself, because my whole life I’ve been living for someone else. I’m so tired of that. So I finally said, “Enough is enough! It’s time for me to learn how to love me without me needing the affection of someone else.

Take life By the Gonads

Good morning!!!!

As always hope your day is going the way you intended.

Isolated Happy Family With Newborn Baby. Royalty Free Cliparts ...Question of the day: Family putting pressure on you to get married and have kids?

This is something many women and men have gone through at some point in their life. I’m having to deal with that question being asked more frequently because I’m in my late 30’s. Some people may not understand how invasive that one question can be. Truth is, you don’t know what kind of issues that man or woman could be going through in attempts to be considered normal a.k.a fertile.

Making sense of a miscarriage | MosaicJust to think back; once I was at a past job and a guy asked me my age, at that time I was 27. The next question immediately was; “Do you have any kids?” When I said “No” he looked at me as if there was something wrong with me. To be honest it pissed me off, because here you are , you don’t know me from a can of paint but you want to get all in my ovaries and find out what’s going on down there before you have the chance to get to know the person.

Sometimes it’s not easy to get pregnant. Just because a person has a little difficulty conceiving doesn’t mean they are less than a woman or man. I never got that, so many of us believe that we aren’t a real man or woman because we’ve had problems with conceiving children.

Signs That You're Killing it at Living Life – That Awkward Tan LineTo be straight up with you, life is too short to sit up here and be concerned with things you can’t change. I understand that not being able to get what you feel you want or need is a bummer, but there is way too much life to live to focus on the things you have little to no control over. That’s why it’s important to always look on the bright side. You’re more likely to grow in the right healthy direction if you do.

Infertility and it’s Causes

 

 

 

                 I wonder if people take time to think why so many women are infertile. In this day and age there could be so many causes: for one, the pollution we breathe in everyday i.e. all types of tobacco products, gas being pumped. Then you have the countless chemicals we put on our bodies daily, like perfumes, lotions, toothpaste, soaps, shampoos, and conditioners. Let’s not forget the things we ingest, like GMO foods, pills, meat, and soda.

       There are so many things we put into our bodies, it’s a wonder most of us are still a live walking this earth today. I’m sure some people are probably going to think I’m being a little extra when I list these things as reason for infertility, and not to mention, so many other things. But All I say is do your research, and you will begin to understand why what you put on and in you body are major factors as to why you are having problems with it.

I remember there was an article I read years ago, that did a study on women who ate healthy living foods like vegetables, fruits, nuts, and grains, you know things that were grown from the ground. Then there was a study conducted on women who ate foods that were what we consider as junk food and fast food, like things that were made and not grown. I’m sure we don’t realize it, hell I don’t realize it most times. But there are so many things out here we eat that aren’t good for us.

My mother always tells me about times when cheap food was expensive and expensive food was cheap. I’m sure you can guess which is which, but just incase you can’t: foods that we buy in packages now are a lot cheaper when you compare it to something like an organic non-GMO vegetable or fruit. I have a theory, I think people who are more affluent gravitate towards the foods that are good for you, because they know they make the body feel like new, if you eat enough of them on a regular basis. What that means is, there won’t be any more lethargic, unmotivated, people who have constant brain fog because of the foods they’re eating,

Also more women would be able to be fruitful and multiply. Not saying that they aren’t able to do so now, but there would be a lot more babies born, because there would be no blockages in the body, caused by things we ate or put on.

Just thought. But there have been to many women I’ve known who have gone through infertility and it’s because we aren’t eating the way we need to, to absorb vital nutrition. Like I always say when I do a post like this, “Do your research.” I rather you know for sure than take my word on it. Another thing, one you start digging you might be surprised of what you find.
