(what I eat every day for lunch)2. I also haven't forgotten that lots of readers have asked me to write about my eating habits (I have mentioned I don't eat meat, and almost no processed foods). I have delayed that post for months because God knows I couldn't eat ANY food, let alone talk about it, but I will write a post soon. (And I have NOT been doing so good on the sugar front the last week or so but we'll talk about that too, as I attempt to get back on track.)

You can check out all the information here. I just loved my retreat and plan on going to another again one day. Maybe in fall with baby? We'll see. If you want a chance to attend one of these retreats for FREE you can see Saren's blog and you'll see how you can do that.
4. Do you read 71 Toes? It's one of my all time favorite blogs, written by a friend Shawni. Her youngest out of five, Lucy, was born with Bardet-Biedel Syndrome. Vision loss is one part of this syndrome and because Shawni is always always upbeat and happy and joyful on her blog (and no doubt in person), I forget the she carries the heavy weight of watching her sweet beautiful little Lucy slowly lose her eyesight at such a young age. From a mother's perspective, honestly, that is terrifying and heartbreaking to me.
This week Shawni and her family are participating in a local Vision Walk in AZ and she is raising money for the Foundation Fighting Blindness-there are several new clinical trials that this foundation is working on that bring hope to Shawni for her Lucy so even a little bit helps. You can read all about her family's participation here (do you live in AZ? I am jealous if you get to walk on Saturday!) and donate here. It is a worthy cause for sure.
