This is going to be a long weight loss journey if I can’t even make it past 15 pounds with any degree of consistency. I’ve said it before and I will say it again, food for me is closely tied with emotions (disappointments, celebrations, parties, etc.) and I need to make changes to not entirely eat unhealthy when certain situations arise. It’s okay to celebrate – and I think we should – but sometimes for me moderation goes out the window or I don’t make an effort to eat a vegetable and that is not okay for me. It will never cease to be amazing to me how quickly (granted I have other ‘issues’ if you will going on this week) weight is gained.

Reader’s Recap

I was pretty nervous to put this post out there about why Mumford & Sons means so much to me (because it is pretty personal and I’m not good at writing letters) so if you haven’t had a chance to read it, please do. Also, learn how to dry  hot peppers from your summer garden in my Summer Garden Series, which will be wrapping up with the season soon.

Photo Recap

Um, IT WAS ONLY THE BEST CONCERT I HAVE EVER BEEN TO IN MY WHOLE ENTIRE LIFE! I already miss it and am dreaming of when I can see Mumford & Sons again. I’m not kidding.


Question of the Week

Do you like Mumford & Sons? Why or why not? What is the best concert you have ever been to? Are you an emotional eater too?

Until the next mile marker,
