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Though I strive to update outdated information quickly and work diligently to make sure you have the most accurate information possible at all times, it is your duty to double check labels EVERY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 12, September 9, 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 twelfth weigh in:

1. The Selfie: The selfie is me as of today, September 9, 2019.  

2. Weight: My weight went down a pound!  I am hoping this will continue.  I have been able to stay a bit more active, and I feel like I am making better food choices, so that should help.  Wish me luck!

3. Health News: I averaged over 8,800 steps per day last week.  I know that that number is a bit skewed because of the Bridge Walk last Monday, but I was out and about as I could be, so that's a positive regardless!  I will keep trying to stay active as I can, and hopefully I will average 6,000+ steps per day this week.

Though my insomnia is definitely better, I am still dealing with some consequences of taking that herbal water pill.  I am hoping they clear up soon, and they seem to be, but they have been no fun!  I definitely won't be taking the herbal water pill again, and I can say that I will not be recommending it.  I am still contemplating another herbal alternative, but I am definitely going to wait awhile for that if I ever decide to try an herbal alternative again.  I have a feeling I am just going to have to deal with the water retention for the foreseeable future.

4. Diet News:  I definitely feel like I did better with my diet this week.  I think that is in part to trying to be very aware of what I am eating and why, but also I decided to try intermittent fasting (for more information on that, click here).  Basically, I am only eating anything calorie containing between 10am and 6pm (though I do have to modify that to like 9am to 5pm on Sundays due to church activities), and limiting myself to water, unsweetened tea or black decaf coffee at any other time.  The biggest thing that I will need to do with this is avoid the trap of eating the convenience foods or anything high in sugar.  So far, I have done very well.  The other thing I am going to try to do is add in more fruits and veggies.  That's something that I got a bit away from, and I would really like to change that.  Wish me luck!

5. Other News: School is in full swing, and this week is going to be insanely busy!  My head swims just thinking about it all.  But you know me - better busy than bored!  Also, I have a few unspoken prayer requests, so if you have time and think about it, I'd appreciate your prayers in those areas!  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!
