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Though I strive to update outdated information quickly and work diligently to make sure you have the most accurate information possible at all times, it is your duty to double check labels EVERY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 21, November 11, 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 twenty-first weigh in:

1. The Selfie: The selfie is me as of today, November 11, 2019.  

2. Weight: My weight went down 2 pounds!  I'm thrilled, and hopeful the pattern will continue. :)

3. Health News: I was able to average just over 7,000 steps per day again last week.  I hope to get at least my minimum of 6,000 steps per day this week, too, but we'll see.  The weather has decided that it is going to be winter vs. autumn, so that will make it a little harder to get out and about.  I'll do what I can, though.

All in all, I am doing pretty well, and I can't complain.  I've not had migraines, but I am dealing with a little insomnia at times still (mostly from breaking my rules).  Thankfully the insomnia hasn't been bad (really just mainly taking me a little longer to fall asleep and then waking about 5am without being able to go back to sleep or sleeping fitfully after that), and it hasn't lead to migraines.  I am going to keep working on following my rules, and hopefully I'll be able to kick the insomnia to the curb!

4. Diet News:  I did great with my intermittent fasting (with the exception of one or 2 days), but struggled a bit with some dietary choices at times (partly because we did some last minute traveling I will discuss later).  Overall, I did great, but there was a day or 2 that was not ok.  I tell ya - I felt pretty awful when I didn't following my fasting plan, though.  I was surprised by that, honestly.  I think my body reacted worse to not following the fasting plan more than it does to not following my food rules!  Good to know, and noted for future!

5. Other News: We ended up doing a last minute road trip last week.  My middle kid has been having some health issues (part of my unspoken requests that I've talked about), and we had to see a specialist about 2 1/2 to 3 hours from our house.  Long story short, we still don't have any answers, and some new symptoms have cropped up, so he will be seeing his regular doctor today to follow-up and see what's up, get some ideas for next steps, etc.  I'm sorry I'm being so vague, but I don't feel at liberty to discuss it any further until we hear something more definite.  Just know that we covet your prayers right now.  Thanks!

Also, I hope to post a new recipe before the weekend.  We'll see if I get the chance.  Things might get a little crazy, so we'll see.

Again, thank you for those who have been praying for us, and please keep them coming. 

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!
