Okay! Our sizzling hot by summer challenge starts THIS wednesday! I am excited. That is new motivation for me, at a time when I couldn't embrace anything less. I am wrapping up the last day caring for my mother in love ( Mother in law, but I love mine!), and will get to sleep in my own bed tonight! I am excited about that. I am off tomorrow, but it is a fully packed day taking care of lots of odds and ends that haven't been tended to from being gone for four days. I am not complaining, just organizing things in my head. I thought one of my little ones may have had the starting of pink eye, but it now looks like it may have just been allergies. Only time will really tell on that one. So tomorrow is going to be an "off day" from school, but still so busy just the same.
I will be posting reminders out there about what all is needed for each participant in the challenge, and then get up a running list of challengers, their starting weight, and of course links to all the blogs, so we all can support one another through the next few weeks! So hard to believe that summer is just around the corner, but I am ready. Ready physically ( because it means lots of playing, swimming, relaxing), emotionally ( I can focus just on three kids instead of 18 +3), and mentally (because there is only one "house" to care for).
I am so proud of those of you who are stepping out of your comfort zones, posting pics, scales pics, and even "the number" where you might not would have otherwise. It really is a "freeing" state of mind to be in, when you can look at those things not as YOUR defining moment, but as the start of a new journey. A new journey of a free-er you! I just had to tell you that I was proud, and really look forward to the next few weeks togther. You all joining me, makes me want to do my very best, as I hope it does the same for you.
