Welcome to theGarden Blog!
Hai guys! I hope you are having a fantastic day! By now you might know a little about me but if not... My name is Gena. I go by MedusaChan on the innanet. Most people call me Medusa, Duse, or M you can take your pick. You're probably wondering what is all this 100 day challenge stuff she's been talking about how did that even become a thing. Well, the last time I did a 100 day challenge I lost about 80 lbs. and felt so great. When I did it the 1st time around, I had did it just on a whim but this time I have a purpose. I currently have been diagnosed with PCOS ( poly cystic ovarian syndrome).
Lets get science-y for a second... PCOS is a common hormonal disorder that affects ovaries in women during childbearing years... yay childbearing years. I've actually had it for quiet some time now but maybe even longer undiagnosed. PCOS signs and symptoms are typically more severe in obese females. Common symptoms include:
Unwanted hair growth (excessive facial hair), Thinning hair on the head, Mood changes, Sleep problems, Depression, Weight gain, Fatigue. When I say trying to find a doctor who would listen when I was younger was such a pain in the arse.
I had to do something to get it in gear. My bad habits trickled on to my kids. Some good ones they love healthier foods but we also love to snack and game a LOT. I missed going to Zumba, playing soccer and just general things that kept me thick-fit and active. I say thick-fit because I've never been a small girl but I always had some meat on me and could run circles around people. NOT NOW, 36 has officially caught up with me and being a full time streamer did not help it on my extreme fatigue days. Though it did help tons on the days I needed to power through depression and the countless sleepless nights. I love live streaming to the very core. I GOT THROUGH SO MUCH during those times. Now its time to get back into the active parts of my life.

In theGarden Community Discord you’ll find our welcome area gives you a role to view the below areas. Everyday a new challenge will be up or something encouraging, enjoyable and lovely.
I hope you’re able to enjoy yourself on this journey with me and my family. Essentially you’ll become part of the garden just like everybody else, right? I know 100 days seems like a long time but it’s really only a little over three months.
I’m really excited to be on this journey and everything that it has attached loving on yourself is one of the best things you could ever do for you.
