Sometimes, the ends become frayed a bit and things unravel. Now seems to be one of those times. I'm fine, albeit it at loose ends somewhat.

I was sincerely interested and looking forward to BLC, but at this point I find that I'm not cut out for that kind of challenge. Part attitude, part schedule, all me. I won't quit, but my interest has waned and I'm merely doing the minimum as the other people on the team don't deserve to be penalized for my actions or lack thereof.

Yet another one of my phases I suspect, and this too shall pass. I have things coming up during the rest of the month that I'm very much looking forward to and I'm excited about. This, right here, right now, is not one of them. I'm allowing myself a break of sorts without guilt or worry. Maybe it will help me refocus and recharge. Or not. We'll see.

    March was mot my month! I even had days where I didn't log on to Spark. Trying to take control of my lofe back and make April a month to be proud of.

You said BLC wasn't for you, and now you know. It wasn't for me this round either and may take a break. Hope all is well with you, Bill and the babies!

    Yeah... sometimes those challenges can be a challenge... LOL! I know sometimes I struggle to stay motivated and keep everything going. Doing what's right for you is always the wise decision. I hope you have a great week and get the recharge you need!

    emoticon You do what you need to do for YOU and take care of yourself. Others will understand. I cannot do those long, demanding challenges. I know this about myself, so I don't bother. Pressure and weigh-ins have the opposite of the intended effect on me, so I stay away. I'm glad to see you're not beating yourself up over this. Glad you have other things coming up this month to look forward to. We're here to keep cheering you on. emoticon Take care of yourself, honey. Love you! emoticon emoticon

    One thing (among MANY) that I love about you Candy is your ability to just own everything. You own who you are and I think that's wonderful. You recognize that your heart isn't in it and own it. No excuses. That in itself is head and shoulders above many. Hope the things you're looking forward to for the month are all that you want.

    BLC is not for everyone. It is good to know what you can and cant do. Just never stop to take care of yourself.

    I SO understand! Long challenges can be, well, challenging to stay excited and involved in for the entire time; life has a way of getting in the way. Do what you can but mostly what you need to for YOU; remember that you are worth all the effort you put in to yourself. Just don't you dare stay away from Spark too long, or I'll have to come looking for you there.

    All the things all the time doesn't work. It's okay, take your time off and enjoy the hell out of it. I get overwhelmed with BLC, too, so I do what I can and don't stress the rest.

What things are you looking forward to coming up? Is it silly that I'm excited for you and I don't even know what this stuff is?

I hope that your break/time off won't include an all out hiatus from spark, though, because I will super miss you....

    I enjoy doing the challeneges too but I have to admit there are times I just am not feeling it. I am unable to do what I need to do. Dont beat yourself up about it. It happens to everyone. I hope you have a great rest of the week!!

    It's tough to stay present and committed to something every day for 12 weeks. Some weeks I do better, and some weeks not so much. The team knows we're all in different places at different times -- so I wouldn't worry about "penalizing the team". Do what you can, participate when you can -- but most of all keep following your path to better health and fitness!!! emoticon
