I've had to make some hard decisions this past week. One of them was to leave the BLC. I was getting so far behind on the various steps of the challenge that it was becoming more frustrating than fun-encouraging. I just wasn't able to keep up, let alone contribute.
Some of you have probably heard me quote my former pastor who used to say that "not every good idea is a God idea." Looking back, I realize that signing up was not a God idea. I have been so super busy with my new tasks at the Bible school and my regular job at the language school that my time and energy have been stretched to the max.
On the other hand, I have gotten so tired of being stuck in my weight loss journey! I knew that I needed to make changes, and I thought that the challenge would give me a boost out of the doldrums. But adding one more project, even one involving lots of super, supportive Spark People like the leaders and teamies of Azure, was not the right thing at the right time.
So, it's back to basics. My goals are pretty much the same as those listed in my last post. I'm making my sleep habits a priority because I think that getting that in order will put me in a better place all around. I've made the commitment to stop using the snooze button and set it up as a check-off goal on my Spark Start page. Today is Day 3!
