It is the end of the school year and things are in hurricane mode. Today is the last day for Seniors to present their culminating projects, graduation luncheon-rehearsal-ceremonies are Friday (which all happen after I teach from 7:45 until noon), and Prom is on Saturday night (which I am helping chaperone). Between meetings, problem-solving for individual students, and closing out IEP paperwork for the year on my students who are graduating, this chick is TOAST!
Through all this I have managed to keep my head about me because of all my wonderful friends on SparkPeople (my virtual "family") and my YMCA/Trainer family. You have buoyed me when I was down and feeling overwhelmed, encouraged me when I want to give up, and been the shoe in my rectum when no other method would suffice.
While my numbers haven't changed in about 6 months, my body has in more ways than I can address:
* Thanks for pointing out the NSVs and reminding me that they are (and I am) more important than a number on a scale!
* Thanks for pointing out that I am more fit than I have ever been in my life!
* Thanks for showing me the muscle definition in my back when I was in my baggy bathing suit and didn't know there was progress going on on my body where I couldn't see.
* Thanks for letting me cry on your shoulder when I didn't make it all the way through my AMRAP because I was too tired but still had a PR on my box jumps.
There are no words to express how much I value each and every one of you and the SP website for all you are in my life!
