BLC21 - Weekly theme, "Go Army!"

Friday, March 15, 2013

I love it!!


Just as the ARMY has core values they strive to live their lives around, so here in the BLC we also have core values as we travel on this journey to improve our lives. Here are you BLC Army Core Values:

Courage: We have the courage to endure, no matter what, to achieve our goals.

Duty: Our duties are healthful eating, regular exercising, drinking plenty of water, sleeping well, and trying to attain top physical and mental fitness.

Loyalty: Team loyalty is a BLC ideal. We believe in and support each other and the team as a whole. We have made a serious commitment to advance the goals of the team and each individual member.

Service: We serve our teammates with support and encouragement. We also serve ourselves in our fitness journey. We commit to go a little further, endure a little longer, and try a little harder.

Respect: We respect our teammates, we respect our bodies, we respect our distinctive personalities.

Honor: Being an honorable BLC-er means living the values of respect, duty, loyalty, service, and courage as they relate to team and individual goals of health, fitness, and happiness.


Pretty much sums up my experience with the challenge.

    I liked it. COURAGE made me think of other things as well. It takes COURAGE to:

-- Say "NO" (whether it's to tempting foods or a needy relative or friend). Every choice that we find challenging takes courage when we make a good decision and stand by it.

-- Make Changes. Change is scary, even when we know it is good for us. Every habit, big or small, that we alter in our lives takes courage to make the shift and stick with it.

-- Stand up for our own value and worth. Too often it is labeled Selfish by those who want the focus on them, so it takes real courage to say "No, ~I~ need this and it is important."

-- Get back up and keep going. Many battles may be lost before the war is won. We must have the courage to stand back up, no matter how low our morale, and face the next battle with a determination to do all we can.
