I'm feeling quite sad; the 5% Challenge is over and I have to wait until May for the next one.
But there is a silver lining. My team, The Casual Travellers, keeps up its chat and interim challenges in the interval. So I'm not totally bereft of my friends and their help and support. To say nothing of their sense of humour.
The name belies the team's character : there's nothing casual about the help and genuine interest the members display towards one another as we wing our way around the virtual world,
visiting fascinating places and picking up and practising healthy lifestyle habits en route. I'm a traveller in maintenance and find the whole experience even more useful in keeping my weight within acceptable bounds than I did when I was trying to lose. Without this regular challenge to keep me focussed on healthy eating and regular exercise I am sure my weight would have ballooned.
I've never felt that I wanted to try out another team as I'm comfortable in the Casual Travellers; but there are other wonderful teams hanging around the airport, each with their own individual character - something for everyone!
I've signed up already for the Spring into Summer journeying. Now it's just a case of waiting for an individual team invitation. Why not try to book a vacant seat on a plane?
