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Though I strive to update outdated information quickly and work diligently to make sure you have the most accurate information possible at all times, it is your duty to double check labels EVERY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 26, June 29, 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.

{I apologize that I didn't get my Family Favorites post up last week!  I totally forgot about it with all the busy that was last week!  I plan on having the Family Favorites post up tomorrow or Wednesday.  Sorry about that!}

Here is my twenty-sixth weigh in of 2020:

1. The Selfie: The selfie is me as of today, June 29, 2020.

2. Weight: My weight stayed the same.  I'll take that over weight gain.  I'm still working on tweaking my diet, and I'm sure that (once I get that right) weight loss will follow.  Wish me luck!

3. Health News: I averaged just over 7,400 steps per day 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.

Overall, I feel like I am doing pretty well, though I still have some odd arrhythmia issues now and then (they are rarer and shorter in duration, and I can always link them to a bad dietary choice, stress event or even possible hormonal trigger).  It will be interesting to see what the specialists say when I do get to see them (I am still have not heard from the gynecologist or endocrinologist yet).  Hopefully, I'll be able to get those appointments scheduled soon.

4. Diet News:  As I mentioned above, I am still working on tweaking the diet.  I am still learning what I can and cannot eat.  It seems that I will have to limit grain products (corn, wheat, etc.) unless there is a decent amount of fiber, fat and/or protein in the product I am eating as those tend to get my heart racing.  So far, I've figured out that berries, honey, whole grains, and most veggies are fine if they contain or are eaten with a decent amount of fiber, fat and/or protein.  I cannot eat most other fresh fruits (including grapes, citrus and bananas), but I'm hoping I can eat apples ok (I am going to try that soon in the form of apples with natural peanut butter).  We shall see!  Dried/sweetened fruits, juices, anything with added sugar, and most prepackaged and processed foods (along with other foods I mentioned above) are a no-go.  It is a bit daunting to sort through it all, and it gets frustrating when I think I have it figured out to only find out I haven't quite yet.  Prayers appreciated as I navigate this new phase in my life.  Thank you!

5. Other News: Please continue to pray for my middle kid.  For nearly 9 months now, he has been dealing with an unknown health issue.  Though he is essentially stable, he is by no means doing 100% (though he is doing much better than he was).  Pray for wisdom for us as we try to decide what to pursue, what to wait on, etc.  Thank you!  If you'd like more of a current update/rundown on his condition, you can click here.

As to our week, another busy week, and that won't change any time soon.  We are tentatively making some plans for a family Independence Day celebration, so please pray those plans all pan out.  Thanks so much!

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!
