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Though I strive to update outdated information quickly and work diligently to make sure you have the most accurate information possible at all times, it is your duty to double check labels EVERY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 14, September 23, 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 fourteenth weigh in:

1. The Selfie: The selfie is me as of today, September 23, 2019.  

2. Weight: My weight stayed the same again.  I am hoping to have some weight loss soon, but I'll take no weight gain.  We shall see what this next week holds.

3. Health News: I was just able to average over 7,000 steps per day last week.  I am hoping to do at least that well this week, but that may not happen due to bad weather.  I will give it my best shot, though!

Insomnia and restless legs have cropped up a little here and there.  I have tried drinking some tart cherry juice for it, and it does help, but I forgot to drink some yesterday and regretted it greatly!  I am going to definitely drink some tart cherry juice daily this week and see how much difference I notice.  If it is noticeable (and I believe it will be based on how much it helped the few times I drank it last week), I will add it to my Food "Do"s List.

Much to my chagrin, I am still dealing with issues that began with the herbal water pill.  There may be something or some things else going on as well, but the herbal water pill definitely played a part in all of it.  It has not been fun, y'all!  I am hopeful that I will be 100% again soon.  I appreciate your prayers.  Thanks so much!

4. Diet News:  Well, last week was a total fail in so many ways as far as wise choices.  I would do great most of the day and then bomb later.  I will admit it - I did a lot of stress eating due to the health issues I've been dealing with.  That didn't help anything, and it is never worth it to stress eat.  You'd think I'd have learned that lesson well enough by now not to repeat it, but I guess I'm stubborn. :)  I will say this - the older I get, the more I realize that eating that chocolate (one of the types I can't eat or eating too much of the types I can) or other food that doesn't play nice with my system, no matter how yummy at the moment, is not worth the consequences later because the consequences are so much more violent than they used to be!  Wisdom definitely comes with age! :D

The intermittent fasting is still going well, and probably the only reason I don't have a weight gain to share today.  I definitely plan to stick with it.

5. Other News: Busy in spades!  That phrase describes this week well...or perhaps the next 2...maybe 3 or more, actually.  I may be able to breathe come November...maybe. :D  I'm glad to be busy, but when I'm not feeling 100%, it is definitely a bit more taxing.  Anyway, at least I'm not bored!

Oh, and my wonderful hubby got me a Samsung Galaxy Fit!  It is really cool!  I can monitor my sleep patterns, keep track of my steps better, check my heart rate and more!  I love it!  If you're looking for a relative inexpensive fitness tracker, check it out!  I can say I highly recommend it.  {No, Samsung is not paying me to say this - they don't even know I am posting this and probably don't even know I have a Galaxy Fit.  My opinion is completely that - my opinion, and I can't be bought, anyway. :D }

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!
