Yep, I decided it was THYME🌿 for a change! 😉 WW & PCOS will always be a part of my journey, but they are certainly not the only parts! I decided to make the little leap & just go for it! I thought this also might be a perfect opportunity to reintroduce myself a little bit to you all!
👋 I’m Anna. I’m 29 and from Northeast TN/Southwest VA. I claim both. My hometown is literally split between the two right in the middle of our downtown.👩🔬 I have a degree in chemistry, but after graduation & some major wind shifts in life, I realized my path was in another direction. Now I’m a Community & Systems Advocacy Specialist (and wear about 100 other hats) at a small nonprofit serving people with disabilities. 💑 I’ve been married to my love for 5 years and have 🐶 2 precious doggies, Dublin & Maggie. 👩🍳 I grew up in the family restaurant business, so cooking and connecting with others through food is in my DNA. 🌸 In June 2016, I was diagnosed with PCOS and started Weight Watchers immediately thereafter...3rd times a charm, and I haven’t looked back since!! 🥑 I am a proponent of real food to heal the body & am on my journey to food freedom! 🌿 Thyme is my favorite herb & I grow an herb garden every year.💕 Taking time to cultivate gratitude is one of the most important aspects of my journey through healthy living-mind, body, & soul! 😘😘

It’s been awhile, #facetofacefriday brought to you by when I had no idea my face had puffed out like this for my 30th birthday. ...Fast forward 1.5 years, 20lbs, and 35” ...
The past few years have been amazing and I owe a large part of that to those at home workouts and diet meal plans you have thought wouldn’t work.
On top of my weight loss and physical body changes, my mind has changed too. I have become more self aware, optimistic, and proud of who I am.
If you’re struggling, maybe it’s time you stopped thinking something wasn’t going to work before even trying it.
I won’t tell you it’s easy, but it is DEFINITELY worth it ❤️.
Want to try? 😉
Hey guys! I just uploaded my weekly meal prep to my YouTube channel 🤗 I hope you enjoy this video! If you did please give me a thumbs up, and subcribe if you would like to see more Weight Watchers related videos. The link is in my bio! Thanks for watching ❤

Find yourself a man who plans Friday night dates that involve your newest Netflix obsession and La Croix in wine glasses. And then brings you home a dozen roses to kick off date night while you snuggle up in your favorite comfies 😍
I’ve waited my whole life for a man like this to walk in my life, but knowing God had a plan was all I needed. Our story isn’t a boring or simple one and will always leave us laughing, but I wouldn’t have it any other way ❤️

When you have a successful day at work but can't drink wine... you pretend your water is wine. Soon enough I'll be enjoying you again! 🍷👶🏻🤰
It feels good to say it-I’ve worked out five days this week after months of spinning in circles. I may have almost died today (what the Buddha squat?!?!?!), but I feel so much better. I sleep better, eat better, feel more mentally balanced, and an actually handling the dreaded 🦈 week with a modicum of self-control for the first time in months. It’s so hard in the moment, and so very worthwhile on the other side 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻

Can you believe ALL the STUFF in soaps? Stuff that has been SCIENTIFICALLY proven to be harmful & toxic; hormone disrupters, killers of our good gut bacteria, etc etc etc. And yet, we use this like it’s no big thang. Especially when it smells good. And c’mon, who doesn’t like the foam?! I am totally guilty of it myself - a reformed bath & body works shopper (which is how I ended up with this particular foaming bottle and cute bottle cover). The last time I shopped there, I really had no qualms, I thought, “it’s just soap, I wash it off. I can’t be 100% all the time.” But. I brought it home, used it a couple times and realized it’s not JUST soap. The scent stuck on my skin. It didn’t wash off. Which meant, it went into my body. And my bloodstream. As a person who battles PCOS, battled infertility, battles ailments that are highly affected by toxins/chemicals, etc., this was a poison I was justifying. (It’s proven science, y’all.) So I started “making” my own smell good foaming soaps that are more effective in cleaning, without all the harming of self (and equally sensitive son). Castile soap, water, essential oils. Boom! Done. .
- I prefer @drbronner hemp baby soap. It’s unscented.
- Essential Oil of choice
- Warm water (not hot)
- I start by filling my bottle about 2/3 with warm water.
- Then I fill up with soap (soap after water so it doesn’t foam and spill out of you did reverse)
- I put the top in and give a quick couple shakes to mix the soap and water, then add my e.o. of choice. (About 3-5 drops OnGuard and 10-15 drops wild orange is the go to for me! I like the fresh scent of oranges mixed with that spice this time of year) - put the lid back on and shake again. - now use! .
(Ps- there is no judgment here. My hubs has his own bathroom and still uses that other stuff... he is a pillar of perfect health and is not ready to give up a lot of his “likes”. I get it.)

You GUYS...pardon me while I happy cry 😭😭. I was SOOO scared to leave my former company. To me it meant admitting failure. I was there for three YEARS and had SO little to show for it. I literally worked myself and my relationship into the GROUND.
I worked harder while pregnant than anyone EVER should. But I had LITTLE result. Deciding to follow a new business venture made me want to barf...after I clicked “cancel” on my former business’s account, I literally cried on my bathroom floor for HOURS.
I’ve only been with my new company a short few months but OMFG!!! As I sit here packing up the FIVE orders I got overnight I can’t help but be soooo grateful that I chose to follow my heart! My main goal when switching was to be able to build an income but to also be a PRESENT mom. I didn’t want to be working on my phone while my son put his finger in a socket. .
In my last business I was ALWAYS working. Working on MY health journey, running paid groups, running free groups, running sneak peeks, running and participating in training groups, team calls, 1:1 calls, and THEN doing the activities that actually made my family money.
With my new business we ONLY focus on the activities that provide income for our families. We get to help people in an authentic way WITHOUT burnout. AND it is such a new business 9 out of 10 people haven’t heard of what I offer!!! With my old business 99% of people I talked to had already talked to someone ELSE about what I did. .
I NEVER had THIS kind of response before with my last business. In only a few months (less than 3) I’ve sent out WELL over 100 packs. This is LITERALLY changing my family’s lives. .
I’m sharing because YES this product is AMAZING and I have never felt better or more ME! I used to feel like social media me and actual me were two different people. But I’m ALSO sharing because if you feel burnt out with your current business or you are searching for a new business opportunity...this is WORTH exploring!! If you are a hard worker and you are coachable, you’ll be crying about the results YOU get too!!! .
I always recommend potential biz partners start by TRYING these amazing ketones! (Cont’d below!)

I wanted to make a separate Instagram account from my personal to document and release off my mind + heart about all of my thoughts, hopes, fears, trials, Dr. Appointments, & fertility treatments. I knew there was a large community of women out here in the social media world that GET IT. I needed to meet you all, and be able to share stories and cheer each other on. I have been so overwhelmed with the support from everyone going through their VERY OWN heart breaks. Girls, you’re my super hero’s. I truly believe you’re not strangers... just friends I haven’t met yet. ❤️🍍 THANK YOU!! &&& just out of curiosity, where is everyone from?! Washington State, here! 🌲 the good ol’ PNW

So keep calm: it's the weekend! Keeping the nice hormones flowing and minimising the nasty ones can really help your skin and control your acne 💫
👉🏼 I break my skincare routine into 3 chunks: Food, Fitness, Facecare. I call it the 3F's of Beauty. You'll call it a game-changer! Discover more at naturallyradiantskin.com⠀
“Anyone can give up, it’s the easiest thing in the world to do. To hold it together when everyone else around you would understand if you fell apart? That’s true strength.”
This week has been hard. I’ve wanted to cheat, give up, and say I’ll start when I’m healed.
But I’m here! I haven’t given up, I haven’t cheated, and I’m not healed but I can modify to fit my injury!
Being part of an exclusive test group with roughly 10% of our global staff keeps me accountable and pushes me when I don’t believe I have it in me. To have been given this opportunity has already inspired me to be better for you!
Today, I am stronger than yesterday and tomorrow, well tomorrow I may just blow your mind!
I’m here to inspire you just like my team inspires me, all it takes is the courage to ask. You know where to find me 😘❤️❤️❤️
I was badly behaved today 🙈I was super stressed and tortured with migraines which is no excuse but I used it as an excuse. I really wanted to stay on plan today because I’m going completely off plan tomorrow night at a friends birthday (which from the start I said was 100% okay with because if I couldn’t join in occasions on a diet I’d be sure to quit) but today was a slip up 🙈 for lunch I had curry chip from the shop but I literally ate like 1/5th of it cause of my migraine. Then had a creme egg mainly because I just wanted one. Then I had my syn free dinner. Even took the fat off the pork even though it’s always been my absolute fav. Then a hifi bar. Then a whole bottle of black tower rose 🙈 because I went for a bath to destress. Ow this wine is usually only 5.5 syns for 250ml which is fab but I was greedy! Then I had a Cadbury bar cause I planned to have it as my treat anyway. Back on plan tomorrow morning 💪🏻 but as I said off plan in the evening and I can hide none of this from the scales Wednesday! 😂 #SlimmingWorld#notalwaysperfect#pcos#pcosfighter#gettingslimformyovaries#gettingslimforababy
Late post as it was a long day at work yesterday but got my #80dayobsession in and after day before’s workout, this felt much better but I could certainly feel it in the glutes! Really enjoying this program!
