Reflections

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,

  1. 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.

    SO……. this is true with so many – a large majority!!! Yup! 🙂 So to be real & honest.. sometimes we just can’t eat & celebrate for every occasion out there especially if this triggers more bad eating decisions.. that takes time to learn & do but it is so worth it. I am not saying I only celebrate my own things BUT mostly them only. 🙂 I may take a bite of something but I have years under my belt & can stop.

    You have to know your triggers & adjust from there – know that you slip up but don’t give up BUT I do suggest trying to modify those trigger situations.. 🙂

      Thanks, Jody! I don’t know when all of this became so hard, but it is definitely something I do need to work on. I hope that recognizing it makes a difference and now I just need to make the decision and learn how to deal with it. Thank you so much for stopping by and for your advice!

    Sara,
    A friend of mine went to the Mumford and Sons concert too and she said it was great too. I like them too.

    As far as the food, I agree, a lot of people (myself included) reward and punish ourselves with food. It is hard to train ourselves to not use food in these ways. I am very slowly learning how to do that too. Be strong. You will get there.

      Thank you for your encouraging words, Beth and for stopping by. I’m still dreaming of Mumford – I want them to come back!! 🙂 Enjoy the week.

  3. I love Mumford & Sons. I like their folky sound. Never seen them in concert though.

    It’s too tough for me to pick one favorite concert, but I will be seeing MY favorite (Nine Inch Nails) for the third time next month. Always an amazing show!

    I’m also an emotional eater. I’m also what I consider a “lazy” eater. Too tired from work, life, etc and don’t feel like putting together something healthy. I understand where you’re coming from!

      Have fun at Nine Inch Nails, Courtney! I hope I get to see Mumford again someday.

      I don’t like to admit that laziness comes into eating, BUT I think you are right! It is so much easier to grab and go sometimes and not think about it. Thanks for your thoughts.
