At the time of publication, all recipes were free of the allergens listed as being free of in the title (i.e. soy-free, milk-free, etc.), and all other information shared was accurate to the best of my knowledge.
Though I strive to update outdated information quickly and work diligently to make sure you have the most accurate information possible at all times, it is your duty to double check labels EVERY TIME to ensure that the ingredients you use are SAFE FOR YOU.
Your doctor or allergist should also be your first go-to for information on how to handle your medical needs. That being said, if you DO notice an error, please send me an email letting me know (tell me what page or recipe the error is on, what the error is, etc.), and I will correct the error ASAP.
Thank you so much!

Please Be Advised:
I make sure all of my recipes use foods that are free of the allergens they say they are free of. You will need to do the same. For help with this, please see the appropriate "Alternative Names" page for the allergen(s) you need the recipe free of.

Weekly Weigh In: Week 17, October 14, 2019

I have decided that this feature will now run indefinitely, and will replace the My Quarterly Report feature.  It will go live every Monday, and it will be a weigh in that will share how I'm doing health-wise, and it will give me more accountability with my health.

Here is my seventeenth weigh in:

1. The Selfie: The selfie is me as of today, October 14, 2019.  

2. Weight: My weight stayed the same again.  I'm definitely not going to complain about that, but hopefully I'll have a weight loss to share next week.

3. Health News: I was only able to average over 7,500 steps per day again last week.  I am glad I was able to do just over the minimum, but I'd like to do more.  I should be able to reach my 6,000 daily step goal minimum this week, too, but it is unlikely that I will be able to do more.

Despite how helpful the cherry juice is, my insomnia is back.  It is no where near what it has been in the past, however.  Also, I can definitely confirm that insomnia and my migraines are linked.  I have been dealing with a migraine for a few days now.  Thankfully, ibuprofen and some black tea have kept the pain away, and it has been more minor in terms of migraines for me in general.  I've basically had the brain fog that lingers on even when the pain is gone, but no nausea, vision issues, etc.  

The flavored, no calorie, carbonated water is definitely not as helpful as the non-flavored, but it is still helping a little with the water retention.  I will take any help I can get, though!  Still no bad side effects that I can tell, so there's that.  I will probably be adding both this and the cherry juice to my "med" list soon.

Other than the migraine/insomnia, I'm doing pretty good! :)  I think once the weather stops fluctuating so wildly I'll do much better.  We'll see.

4. Diet News:  Oh my!  Epic fail this last week.  It is amazing that I didn't gain any weight.  I feel like my appetite came back with a vengeance, and I made some awful choices.  I'm going to really work on that this week.  I am sure my dietary choices haven't helped the insomnia or migraines.  You'd think I'd learn a bit quicker...  *sigh*  Here's hoping I get this week's eating choices right!

Intermittent fasting is still helping.  I'm sure it is why I didn't gain weight.  It is pretty much habit now, so that's great!  I am probably going to add this to my food "do"s and "don't"s list soon.

5. Other News: Yep, another busy week this week.  Missions Conference, Driver's Ed (part 2), school, doctor's appointments...Yes, I think I'll need a vacation when this week is over! LOL :) All in all, it should be a great week, and I'm really looking forward to the conference.

If you think about it, please be in prayer for some special unspokens.  I have a lot on my heart and mind that I cannot share publicly, but those things do require prayer.  Thank you!

How are you doing?  Do you have anything you want to weigh in with?  Any health progress or goals you want to share?  If so, please leave a comment below (with a link to your post, if you have one and wish to leave it), and I'll respond ASAP.

Have a great week!
