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Though I strive to update outdated information quickly and work diligently to make sure you have the most accurate information possible at all times, it is your duty to double check labels EVERY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 27, July 6, 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 twenty-seventh weigh in of 2020:

1. The Selfie: The selfie is me as of today, July 6, 2020.

2. Weight: My weight is yo-yoing again.  I'm up about 3 lbs. right now.  The heatwave we've been having is not helping my water retention, but I know I am not eating 100% right for me, either.  I'm going to keep working on it, and hopefully have a weight loss to share with you next week.

3. Health News: I averaged just over 8,900 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.

I heard from my OBGYN, and he didn't think my PCOS had anything to do with my arrhythmia issues, so that's good.  He still wants me to see him in August, so prayerfully nothing will happen to cancel that appointment.  He also mentioned that he agreed with the cardiologist that seeing an endocrinologist was a good idea, so please pray that I will be able to get that appointment scheduled soon.  Thanks!

Overall, though, I feel like my arrhythmia issue has been pretty stable.  I've not had any major issues, and any issues I have had can be linked to something dietary or stress related.  I'm just glad I've not had to make any more trips to the ER. :)

My back is giving me issues again like it did years ago.  I have a lot of tension in it with pain at times (ranging from my neck to my hips depending on the day), and I'm currently having issues with tingling/numbness/lack of sensation in my legs (mainly my left leg) probably due to said back issues.  I can also have leg pain and knee issues at times.  I'm going to see the chiro today, so hopefully it will help (it normally does).  I'm hoping that I can find some stretches or something that can help relieve the tension, too.  We'll see what she recommends.

4. Diet News:  As I mentioned above, I am still working on tweaking the diet.  The irony is that, according to traditional thinking in regards to foods, my diet isn't too bad.  Problem is, it is not the right one for me.  I'm going to work on reducing grains a bit more, and I'm still struggling to get those potato chips out of my diet (they are a temptation, but I don't have any currently in the house, so hopefully I can keep it that way).  I'm also going to work on not eating unless I'm truly hungry.  I can be an idle eater, and that's not a good thing, even if I'm snacking on things that aren't necessarily bad for you.  Anyway, I really do feel like I'm making slow progress, even if my weight disagrees.  I'll get it right one of these days! :)

5. Other News: Please continue to pray for my middle kid.  For 9 months now, he has been dealing with an unknown health issue.  Though he is essentially stable, he is still not 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're hoping to sneak in some fun family time by the weekend if possible, though.  We shall see.

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!
