Food allergies is a topic that is always a little controversial, even in like-minded circles sometimes. Everyone has an opinion and their doctor (or doctors) has an opinion. There are those people that do not even believe food allergies exist and then there are those that may choose to eliminate a food from their diet because it's "trendy" or the "thing to do" right now. Both of these groups are extreme and not ones I would personally take advice from. Everyone's body is unique and responds to foods differently. It's a fairly long post today, documenting our allergy story.
I will be honest, I am not very good at meal planning. Maybe that is why I despise it. The week always goes ten times better when I at least have a guideline though. I have searched and attempted to use countless meal planning printables and apps. We cook ahead food at one time for leftovers and so far, nothing has worked except for something I drew out on plain paper one Sunday night.
Fourth of July weekend is always a big weekend. We typically drive back home to see family. My husband's birthday is the end of June and there are a few other birthdays in July. His family makes a big deal of birthdays, but I like it. Its fun to celebrate with everyone and let the kids be around extended family. But the four to six hour drive can be a challenge - especially with no DVD player and a car sick prone kiddo.
Mondays are always long. Today was a little longer. No caffeine today. My husband and I made a pact, a wager, if you will, on who would crack this week. I'm determined to win and beat this accountability partner of mine.
Why am I so tired is really a silly question with three kids running around ages five and under. But it's a question we have to ask ourselves at some point when the fatigue gets too much.
September is Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) Awareness month. This topic is very personal for me because I have PCOS. My hope is that awareness can continue past just this month.
We have just completed week of challenging each other, my husband and I, to only drinking water. We have both been trying to do better with our caffeinated and sugary beverage drinks, but we needed to amp it up a bit. Focusing on doing it together, being accountable to each other I think is what got us through. Although, we each have had two drinks, once on Wednesday and once this weekend.
Please check back often as I am adding or modifying pages as time permits.
Scripture/Quote of the Week:
For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.
