I am lumping all summer into this one update. We were here, there and everywhere, and September always feels like a fresh start!

I’m back to walking in the evenings, which is great. I am better about making sure I meet my water goals, and mostly watching what I eat. I went outside my comfort zone and bought a swim suit that shows way more of my chest than I would normally allow.
