I sit here tonight very humbled. During my last goal review I mentioned being on my pity pot. Life has a strange way of providing some prospective and balance. This week I was confronted with a true crisis. Somehow I did manage to loose some weight and get some exercise in. We are never as fragile as we think. Nor do I have the resources or energy to waste them on events that don't require it. Although I wish the crisis never happened I still accept it with thankfulness as it was a learning experience that will be remembered.
I mention in my last review I bought a kettle bell and was a little fearful of it. This week on SP I found a great kettle bell group eager to help each other and giving out sound advice. I should have listen a little closer to the comment "just because you can do more doesn't mean you should" as I got so much into practicing my swings that I cannot call it a burn -I am sore!
I joined the Twenty-eight Day Boot camp hoping it will help me reach the 5% weight loss goal for my Butterfly Team Challenge. I have been loosing one pound a week and I want to step up as I need to loose 5 pounds in 3 weeks if I am going to meet my goal.
For my Spark Buddies and my Spark Teams, my apologies for being absent so much this week. I value you all!
