Box in the mail

Today my order from Mountain Rose Herbs arrived. It was so fun to look through the box at everything. My original intent for the order was to get supplies to make Nursing Mother Tea. I had a good bit of supply issues when nursing Caleb, so this time, I’m going in armed and ready. Last …

Yogurt

We are absolutely loving yogurt around here lately. Well, we always love it, but it’s been a long time since I’ve made any. With the diet changes we started implementing this week, I decided that having plain yogurt in the house was a good idea again. The recipe I followed is at A Year of …

A realization

Stephen and I had an interesting discussion last night about weight. Mine, to be specific. I’m in the time frame right now where everybody’s understanding that I’m still above where I’d like to be. Really, C is only 4 months old. Some friends have told me to not worry about my weight just yet, that …

My bloodwork results

I finally got in touch with my doctor’s office this week regarding my bloodwork. Everything came back normal. I was absolutely shocked! I asked her for the specific numbers because I just couldn’t believe the test came back normal. The nurse told me that sometimes weight loss is enough to reverse insulin resistance, and apparently …
