BLC 22.. is coming soon for those of you who were not in round 21 but would love to be in round 22. This is a competitive yet supportive team that breaks us into sub-teams who compete against each other within the main team.
That being said, it is one of the biggest reasons I have NOT given up and keeps me committed to living healthy and making strides towards being the healthy Cyndi that I’m striving for. Do you think it’s not for you? You may be surprised. While yes, it is a competition and those who lose the most are celebrated, there is something there for everyone who is seriously committed to living a healthier lifestyle.
Most of you out there know my situation and know how hard it can be to live healthy and exercise while living with chronic pain. Many of you may think like I used to that a competitive team would not be for you. I took a chance on it when a friend posted that she was joining again (in a post similar to this one). I have gone from being able to exercise/walk/bop on a ball (yes I was involved in this team before and during my ankle surgery) for up to 30 minutes at a time to exercising most days of the week for an hour (or more).
What you need to be involved?
1. A willingness to commit for a full 12 weeks. Yes, that is 3 months. But this is a challenge and as such should make us stretch.
2. A willingness to do your best with each of the challenges within your team or the overall BLC team as a whole. They/we do not expect perfection, but that you put forward your best effort wherever that is right now.
3. A willingness to be social. When you sign up you commit to posting to your team and interacting with your teammates 3 times a week. A MINIMUM of 3 posts. However, you get out what you put in and the more you chat with your team the better the round goes. At least, that is how it works for me.
That’s it. That’s all you need.
Are you willing and ready to take this challenge… or dare if you will?
Open (hopefully) May 15.
And here’s a link to the different teams descriptions. See each team has a different focus, as such there’s something for nearly everyone.
