Today Aurora and I went to Arison Farm's Annual Pumpkin Picking Event! There's vendors, food, music & hayrides. The vendors included locally made soaps, honey, toys, face-painting, books, clothes & more. Lots of fun to be had, we didn't get our faces painted because the line was really long.

My Papa (pawpaw) aka grandpa passed away. It was sudden but not unexpected, he suffered from Alzheimer's the last several years of his life. I didn't have much of a relationship with him, I was one of 17 grandchildren.

It's finally cooled off a bit and been raining the past couple days.
​We caught a break in the weather and made a family trip to the city park.

This month I started Camp Gladiator, a community based exercise program. I found a company birthday special, and joined 4 weeks of unlimited workouts for $9. My goal is to complete 3 workouts a week for the duration of camp. So far I have completed 5 out of 12 workouts. I am proud to say I have pushed myself, not only physically but really out of my comfort zone completely.

I was incredibly sore after the first day, but got through the first week with no problems. The second week has been a different story, having trouble getting to camp because of work or just anxiety. Luckily it was buddy week, so I was able to bring my sister as a guest. Then I experienced my first athletic injury, nothing traumatic but severe discomfort in my knees & shins. I hope to surpass it next week!

Aside from CG, I have set some other achievable goals and made some sustainable changes. I have completely cut out soda (a big deal for me), hit the gym a few times, and taken over mowing and yard work at my house. I have also taken some 'before' photos and measurements of my body, but I will wait to post until I have some results to compare them to.

Everyone has been sharing their midsummer adventures, well summer is just getting started around here. We will soon start experiencing 100 degree weather on a regular basis, it will last through school starting and start to cool down in time for Christmas. Classic 6 month summer in Texas. Went swimming for the first time this year in my last post, and then today we went and bought some small fireworks and smoke bombs for the first time for Rory to see.
