Diving In

This is my first blog. I would absolutely love it if someone could take all of my ideas and thoughts and just make a beautiful blog out of it. Sadly, there is only me to do it and my hopes that what and how I think will come out in my writing. 

I have a small description about this blog, but I would like to go in farther. 

I am 23 (or will be in July!) I have been married for 2 and a half years. Recently, my husband and I have had 2 miscarriages in 6 months. We have finally been trying to be healthy, especially me. I have been diagnosed with high testosterone, which is indicative of PCOS (Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome). I do not want to take medication to lower my testosterone. It isn't safe, and doesn't cure it. It treats symptoms of having high testosterone. Ways to do that is through a more plant based and healthy diet, as well as exercise. I am not really overweight, or obese, but high testosterone makes it hard to lose weight, and puts women at higher risk for both cardiovascular disease and diabetes. So aside from pregnancy, it is a dangerous thing for a woman to have. 

Through this, I am posting my own original recipes and ideas. Some won't be my ideas, maybe they'll be some I expanded upon, or just downright copied. Let's face it, with Pinterest nowadays, it's hard to have ideas no one else has done or thought of!  Most will be healthy, but some will be unhealthy. I love cooking for people and I can't expect everyone to eat the same as me. Lord willing, He will continue to bless me with creative thinking and ideas to create well balanced and healthy recipes. 

This is my journey, throughout thick and thin, through ups and downs, through mourning and rejoicing. Thank you for joining me and I hope that I can help you in some small way!

    I just finished reading what you have so far and I think that this is a great idea! Not only will this be something wonderful for you and your husband, but I think that others will be inspired by this choice in lifestyle and healthy living! I hope to see more in the future!

    God bless!
