I am a Teddy Bear!!!!
I am excited and ready to start the challenge!
Welcome to all my Teddy Bears and to all the other teams in the challenge. Time for some fun and challenges!
The Teddy picture on my banner represents myself and my 4 siblings and I (I am the middle one because I am the oldest) . These Memory Bears were made with our mom's nightgown so that we could each have a piece of her!
I am from Central Florida, married 28 years on 6/23, two sons and I am a 2nd grade teacher. This year is coming full circle due to lots of personal losses and challenges. However, I am committed to taking care of myself first so that I can then take care of others.
Summer Challenge Commitment:
This is the one year where I commit to really making time for myself. The past years I have neglected to really set aside my time and not let things get in the way. I feel that in order to help my family, children, friends, etc. I need to be healthy and the only way to achieve this is by looking out for number 1-ME
I will make sure that I take my gym clothes to work and leave work at my regular hour so that I can get to the gym and really have some ME time.
I don't want to sound selfish but I feel that I really need this time! I will track my food in take, and follow the LTGL.
A fragment of a poem by Ralph Waldo Emerson:
"Finish each day
And be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and
Absurdities have crept in.
Forget them as soon as you can."
I believe we can all apply this to our lives!
I look at this constantly to help me on my way whenever I feel that I have not done my best!!
So let the Summer begin!!
