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Though I strive to update outdated information quickly and work diligently to make sure you have the most accurate information possible at all times, it is your duty to double check labels EVERY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 36, September 7, 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 thirty-sixth weigh in of 2020:

1. The Selfie: The selfie is me as of today, September 7, 2020.

2. Weight: My weight went down two and a half pounds.  I'm thrilled!  Here's hoping the weight loss keeps up.

3. Health News: I averaged just over 10,100 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 do best when I get in a daily walk or 2, so I am going to really push to do this even if the weather isn't 100%.

My TeleHealth with the OBGYN was short and sweet.  He says that my issue seems to have resolved.  I am not exactly sure what that means, if the cysts are gone or not growing or what, so I'll will let you know when I get the official report.

I am still waiting on my rheumatologist appointment time.  I will let you know if/when that happens.  If by chance the referral does not go through and I don't get to see the rheumatologist, I will speak with my doctor about next steps.  I'm finding that if I don't stick very strictly to my dietary needs, I have issues with racing heart, and even some elevated blood pressure (and I've never had high blood pressure - it has always been great or almost borderline low).  Anyway, we'll see how things go with the referral, and I'll keep you posted.

I am also having some insomnia and restless leg issues off and on again.  It's not too bad, but it is definitely enough to frustrate a person!

4. Diet News:  I am still struggling for variety, and now I have to watch my salt intake as well as my carb/sugar intake.  It makes things interesting to say the least because there is a fine line between too much salt and too little salt, and even the time of day matters for the salt and anything carb (I pretty much can have nothing too salty after 3pm, and no form of sugar - including honey, fruit or grains - after 3pm, either).  I'll figure it out, but it's going to take time.  It definitely makes for some rough nights when I get it wrong, I tell ya!

5. Other News: Please continue to pray for my middle kid.  For 11 months now, he has been dealing with an unknown health issue.  He is having a few issues here and there, and we're waiting on some things yet, but otherwise he is pretty stable (as long as he takes his medication).  We'd like to be able to figure out what the source of the issue is so that he can go off the medication if at all possible, though.  If you'd like more of a current update/rundown on his condition, you can click here.

As to our week, it's back-to-{home}school week, so it's going to be a bit insane.  Hopefully, all will go smoothly.  We shall see!  Other than school, not too much is planned as of yet, but I have a feeling it won't stay that way.  At least we won't be bored! :D

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!
