I'm teeming with teams!

Saturday, April 20, 2013

In my last blog entry I spoke about how being a member of a BLC team here on Spark People has really helped me. I think of myself as a loner; I prefer to do quiet things on my own and the companionship of a discerning cat is as much as I've needed to feel as if I am socializing.

But in January I joined a Trivia Team and we played in a League in loud bars with people young enough to be my grandchildren--if you stretch it a bit.
We came in 2nd overall. This afternoon we won the finals and our team split $700. I don't think I have ever earned so much in two hours in my life.

I have received a great deal from Spark Teams, too. Worth more than $700 is the ability to join a team challenge which, if followed, will result in a very likely chance to lose weight and to gain fitness. Team work has motivated me to increase my stamina and to extend my muscles. It's true!!

    Funny, I have just found out about these trivia teams - from reading Ken Jennings' book Brainiac. I'm only moderately good at trivia but it sounds like lots of fun. and as a fellow loner, I must say it's been great for me to develop my stunted "group-y" side by working with other musicians. emoticon

    I like the teams. I go from active daily participation to virtually nothing a few times a month, but it's always cool. I love the diverse information you can get.

    trying to type one-handed because the other arm is full holding my old grouchy cat who will NOT settle down unless he's on my shoulder... yaay to introverts and the companionship of cats. i love Sparkpeople for giving me the benefit of teams in doses i can manage without being overwhelmed. and yaay too to having fun with a group of like-minded people - in this case profitable fun as well. congratulations1
