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Though I strive to update outdated information quickly and work diligently to make sure you have the most accurate information possible at all times, it is your duty to double check labels EVERY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 2020: Week 4, January 27, 2020

Weekly Weigh In will go live every Monday, and it will share how I'm doing health-wise, and it will give me more accountability with my health.

Here is my fourth weigh in of 2020:

1. The Selfie: The selfie is me as of today, January 27, 2020.  

2. Weight: My weight went up 2 lbs.  There's a lot of reasons for that, and I am dealing with bloating, but it is what it is.  I will keep working on it, and hopefully be back on track by next week.

3. Health News: I averaged just below 6,000 steps per day again last week, so I didn't quite reach my goal.  I am hoping to get my 6,000 steps per day average this week, but we'll see.  I'll at least do the best I can.

I was not able to do any of the toning/strength exercises last week, though I did get out and walk when I could, and I did shovel snow at times, too.  Not my best week in regards to exercise.  Hopefully this week will go better.

My insomnia and migraines showed up at times this last week and were still bothering me last night.  My dietary choices weren't the best at times, and I'm sure that played into it.  We've had a lot of crazy weather systems, too, so that didn't help.  I've also had some sort of stomach issue (only partially linked to the dietary choices) going on, so I'm sure that didn't help.

My plantar fasciitis is definitely better.  It bothers me very rarely now, so I'm glad.  At least I can walk without pain. :)  Thanks for the prayers in this regard!

4. Diet News:  I definitely made some poor choices (for me) this week.  Part of it was not feeling the best, so that meant more simple carbs vs. complex ones/proteins, and that ends up being a double-edged sword.  It may make my stomach feel better, but I also gain weight and have bloating due to it.  It's kinda awful, but it is what it is.

My stomach is starting to feel better today, so I'm slowly going back to my more normal way of eating.  Hopefully that means I'll go back to weight loss next week.  

I am also going to be a bit more cautious about eating foods too closely together that don't always agree with me (i.e. don't eat tacos within 24 hours of eating chili).  I think that will help me a lot.  

Also, I am going to be more diligent about avoiding sugar after noon.  I'd let that slip a little, and I think that played into my insomnia a bit.  Not worth it!

5. Other News: Please continue to pray for my middle kid.  For nearly 4 months now, he has been dealing with an unknown health issue.  He has basically made no changes, and he has good (and I don't mean symptom-free, just more mild symptoms) days and bad days.  If you'd like a current update/rundown on his condition, you can click here.

As to our week, just a normal school week for now, but that could change (for example, my hubby is ill today - prayers appreciated - so we have an unplanned appointment for him this afternoon that's made our school day interesting).  

I have my blog schedule basically finalized for this year, so that's good.  I am going to start slowly working on some blog updates as I can, but who knows how long those will take as I am squeezing those in as I have time (which isn't a lot recently).

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!
