The 'Weight'ing Game

Another shipment came! My favorite Love Grown Foods box from Amazon came with six fresh bags of delicious gluten free granola.  I just can't get enough of this stuff mixed in with 3/4 cup of plain greek yogurt, a tablespoon of honey, and yummy blueberries/strawberries (fresh or frozen!). 

I am enjoying a relaxing week up north at our family vacation spot and cannot complain about the gorgeous view of Lake Superior.

So this summer has been up and down in reference to the scale.  Last summer was my first summer of "maintenance" and I found it more of a struggle to not gain weight than during the other 9 months of the year.  I fluctuated up and down five pounds due to having the summer off from teaching and having a different daily schedule in general.  This summer, I am up five pounds from my lowest weight and I have been trying to not see it as much as a struggle and more of a success that I haven't strayed away too far from my lowest.  In fact, my "happy" weight is within those five pounds.  This week has been a nice break from the scale because I do usually weigh myself every morning and every night and tend to let it affect my mood. 

On a WAY more fun note, my garden is coming along and it's almost harvest time!



 Pea pods!

I also have jalepeno peppers and bell peppers popping up. Cannot wait to pick all of these veggies!
