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Though I strive to update outdated information quickly and work diligently to make sure you have the most accurate information possible at all times, it is your duty to double check labels EVERY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 12, March 23, 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 twelfth weigh in of 2020:

1. The Selfie: The selfie is me as of today, March 23, 2020.
2. Weight: My weight went down half a pound.  I'll take it!  Hopefully, next week I'll have another weight loss to report.

3. Health News: I averaged just over 7,200 steps per day again last week.  I am hoping to get at least my 6,000 steps per day average this week, and will do so as long as I can be out and about.  With the current COVID-19 restrictions along with the uncertainty of Michigan weather (Welcome, Spring!), I'm not sure I'll get out much.  Thankfully, we live in a small town, so I know places where we can walk without coming into direct contact with others.

Migraines are leaving me alone for now, but my insomnia is still showing up now and again.  It is my hope that I will continue to have improvements in these areas this week, too.  We'll see how it goes.

Other than the insomnia, I feel like I am doing pretty well.  I've been a bit stuffy with a scratchy throat at times, but no fever, so I can't complain.  I'm pretty sure it is seasonal allergies, but it is so impossible to know for sure in the day and age we live in, so I am just keeping my eye on things (and staying home other than to get outside when I can).  What else can you do?

4. Diet News:  Nothing too new to report here.  I am finding I am still a bit of a chip-aholic (Potato chips are my nemesis!).  I am working on that!  Other than that, I feel like I'm making progress and making better choices overall.  Here's hoping for more improvements in this department over the next week, too!

5. Other News: Please continue to pray for my middle kid.  For nearly 6 months now, he has been dealing with an unknown health issue.  He has basically made no real major 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, school as usual (because we homeschool), but that's about it.  We are now under a stay-at-home order which will turn life even more on its head.  We've been basically staying home, anyway, but now it is a requirement.  We'll still go on walks when we can, but will be home otherwise, with limited exceptions.  {Praise: It looks like my husband's work is considered exempt, so he will be able to work for now.}  I know this will pass, but for now, it is definitely a bit overwhelming.  I'm so glad God knows all about it, and I can seek His wisdom, peace and guidance in this matter!

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!
