Well one week down and 7 to go!! This week was a rough start because it was my birthday weekend m and I did go out to dinner with friends and then of course my three men (DH and 2 sons) also took me to dinner!!! So I was not following the proper food intake!!! So I did go up 1.5 but because I was active I did keep it to a minimum! Now the excuses are over and let's start fresh!! Let's go Teddy Bears!
Well it is almost time for the 5% Spring challenge. I am happy to report that I am a Teddy Bear once again. mm
I love my Teddy Bears and I am so happy to be once again traveling with this great group of Bears. Welcome and a warm hello to all the new members. Hope to get to meet you all and you can count on me to be there for support and cheering us all on.
A friendly hello to all returning Teddies and hello to all the other teams that will be joining us on this wonderful adventure.
Let's have some fun and great competition!!! May the best "Bear" team win!!!
Thank you to all my wonderful spark friends "Teddy Bears" for all you kind and warm wishes on my day in the spotlight. The messages are so heartwarming and the goodies are awesome!! Love the fun we have with this team and the whole website!!
Let's finish our challenge strong no matter what the outcome.
I have learned throughout this whole process that it is not just the weight it is the whole body, mind and spirit. So many motivational moments, inspirational quotes from all that we share. We learn and give ourselves permission to say "YES" to life.
As the saying goes "We lose some and we win some" of course our goal is to lose the weight but we gain so much more and all the friendship that is formed is incredible!
So once again thanks to all my sparkies!
Tomorrow I head out with my 4th grade class on our annual field trip to St. Augustine to supplement our studies of Florida history. Everyone is really excited but the only damper is that the weather has made a turn for the worse (Florida style) and it is raining and cool. Tomorrow is suppose to be cooler -low 50's-which is great but raining. The kids are all so excited that I have had a hard time keeping them focused. This our big trip that they all look forward to in 4th grade and all week all they have done is talk about it and ask questions. I love to see them so excited and full of life.
So my day tomorrow will involve lots of walking and fun with a wonderful, enthusiastic group of 4th graders. m
Let's just hope that the rain does not spoil our day!! and that I can survive so much energy!
