My name is Maribel and I live in Petrer, Spain where the Lord has placed my dear family to serve Him as missionaries. I am married to a wonderful man, David Bell, and we are in the process of planting a new church in the area. I am a teacher, and this year I have been given the incredible challenge of teaching a class of 25 3-year-old children with a great emphasis in English. I have taken it as an assignment from the Lord. This, by the way, should make my Christmas Crunch Challenge easier, due to the amount of energy spent during the day. I have three children of my own ages 11, 9, and almost 7, and I enjoy them greatly. I eat at school everyday, so I will probably choose a light supper strategy, since breakfast is my favourite meal of the day. I would like this challenge to motivate me to exercise specific parts of my body when I do not feel like exercising. I feel like at my age (37 on the 16th) my everyday activity may not be enough to keep me fit. So, let's see what happens from here to Christmas; see if exercise makes a difference (sounds like I am challenging the Challenge!). I'm looking forward to encouraging and being encouraged as I make new friends. I do need to say, though, that I do not have much time to spend at the computer, but I'll do my best to post. Enjoy fitness!
