Cupcake Bud's Challenge

Being that my journey is the natural route when it comes to TTC I've decided to set a challenge (or perhaps some would call it a goal) for myself. I decided I wanted to see how many days in a row I could stay eating healthy. I've decided I won't eat anything fried, or sweets or drink soda. Eliminating these types of food altogether will help me accomplish my goal faster.

I've done it before and it became so natural not to eat it... so much I didn't even crave it. But after the miscarriage and putting the weight back on and not caring what I ate... I've opened the door for those awful cravings... and I want to close it again.

So starting today I will see how many days in a row I can do this :) and NO cheat days... if I do I will have to start the counter all over again. I want to at least make it to 100 days if possible. I know that is a lot, but I think I can do it.

Below is my counter to keep track of how many days it's been:

LilySlim Diet days tickers

On a side note: to explain a little more why Mr. Cupcake Bud and I decided to go natural was because we tried drugs and other things... and they all failed us. I was tired of hearing all the things I couldn't do or how hard everything will be for me blah blah blah... gotta love PCOS.

However, I didn't want to hear it anymore and did my own research and came across a lot of research studies of how natural supplements/herbs helped ladies with PCOS reverse their symptoms and get pregnant. I felt it was worth a try after all because how can it be bad to try... boy was I glad I did. Not only did my symptoms go away and I was feeling much healthier, but I got pregnant :)

So this is why I am doing it the natural way again.

I think it is so wonderful that you are going the natural route. I TTC that way (nutritionist, acupuncture, personal trainer) for over a year, but I was unsuccessful. So now I am on my first cycle of Clomid. Unfortunately for me, I have PCOS and a couple other factors which make it hard for me. I am also allergic to many weird things, so I could not do herbs. I hate the medicine with every once of my being, so I am thrilled to read about your journey. I will keep positive thoughts headed your way!

Good luck I think you can definitely go for 100 days!!! It is nice to have people to be accountable to as well!! Keep us posted!!

Good luck! Before getting pregnant, I cut out most refined foods, and loved how I felt. There's just something about not putting junk into your body...(now, pshhh, I'm lucky to eat a horrible pot pie for lunch-but we're slowly getting back to the way we used to eat as I'm starting to feel better). I hope the natural route works for you and you get your sticky baby!
