Yes...I am a blogger, but I tend to only blog what I am thinking or trying to sort at the time. It feels OFF to me to blog for a challenge on a team. I feel like the rebellious teenager....that doesn't want too..but going to anyways....for the TEAM.
AND YET........it occurred to me..that perhaps some of my friends may see this and consider joining BLC 26 in the FALL. Would love to have you!
My first round was number 9! To this day, that has been the most special to me. My friend Pamela got me into BLC. She is long gone from BLC..but not in my heart.....or our friendship. Actually, got a few of those fellow teammates...we are still friends, but on FB.
BLC has changed over time, but then again, so have I.
I owe a lot to BLC. I do.
This past round was hard being in the Summer for I like to be outside more....and YET.....others felt the same way and we were STILL there for one another. We have shared recipes.......cheered others as they completed workouts, runs, and made smart choices concerning FOOD. Love it when recipes sound good and the others share them!
BLC keeps me in check.......and I hope others as well. We had our name up in lights a few times, so I would SAY SO!
There are always a few I quite frankly wonder WHY they are there...but that happens no matter what you are doing and no matter where you are. I hope one day it clicks for them and they quit saying that they NEED to do.....or make excuses of why they DON'T. I tend not to feed in to that anymore. I use too....I use to care and try so hard. It took me a long time to REALIZE....I cannot do it for anyone...no matter how hard I was trying...pulling for them. I have enough on my OWN plate to carry me.
SO...I have grown there too. I don't feel guilty....nor that I failed with those ....that don't. They just don't. They may one day....but that day will be THEIRS and THEIRS alone.....and not mine. I always wish them the best, but, to be frank, they don't affect me.
Don't get me wrong, so many DO TRY.....DO DO......and.......I LOVE THAT....I LOVE THEM. I love it when a person is HONEST....and make changes ACCORDINGLY. Let's face it...we all stumble......that is life. YET....we pick up those that have...and cheer them on....CLAPPING....SMILING.....that they got up instead of still laying there....on the ground.
I loved working with the captain and other cos. We are a unit. We have our own responsibilities and TRUST the other to do their commitment. We also support and help when needed. I could NOT even imagine being on a team without what we have. Let's face it...I wouldn't be.
I am proud to be apart of BLC and our team. I am. I am quite lucky.
