Week 1 closing and I feel good!

Friday, May 17, 2013

Especially after finding many opportunities to get up and walk around today. It was great because my legs felt so sore by the end of the day. I love it when my legs are sore because I feel...normal. I don't feel like this marshmallow walking through the building and so long as I don't look in any mirrors, I will continue feeling good. I did real well with eating. I haven't looked at my Spark Streaks yet, but I know I got some streaks going and I'm hoping for things to get better and better!

Tomorrow we board the planes and say goodbye to Cambodia and take off for NYC! I'm so excited because I've actually been there in real life and it will be much easier to go site seeing in my head. What was really funny was when I was talking about the next destination, I think one of my butterflies thought I was really going because she was telling me to enjoy and how she would like to go. Well, if she's doing the challenge, she's going because the butterflies are flapping hard and I'm sure the other teams are doing well too. So far it has been a very fun challenge and the spark I needed.

I'm a single Mom with a 7 year old daughter. I have a mobile home. I now have a new car. I don't get to travel anymore. So when I got this invite to join, I got very excited. To be able to travel...if only in my head is just amazing and I'm making a lot of great friends in the process. This has been an amazing journey and so needed. It's helped me point out what stuff I need to work on and where I'm solid. I don't know what the scale is going to say Sunday, but not going to stress about it. I'm changing from the inside out!

    You just exude excitement. I am so glad for you that you are enjoying the challenge. That is the kind of attitude that makes it all worthwhile, and makes it come all together. Keep it up. Don't forget to post your weight tomorrow, on Saturday.
    Hugs, Ravyna

    You have done great - you must be a huge inspiration to your little girl. It also must be hard doing all that on your own - as well as take care of you. You deserve a huge round of applause! I will start. emoticon emoticon emoticon Well, what did you expect?!? They didn't have an icon for clapping! I told you I was resourceful sometimes - didn't I?!?

    I grew up in Jersey - we went on field trips and all that to NY. I have many fond memories. I even got to visit there with my dh many many years ago. It was nice. So looking forward to seeing you there - beautiful butterfly!
