Spark Emails/Team Challenges

Friday, February 15, 2013

This is just a quick rant that I feel that I need to get off my chest. This morning I awoke with many emails about my tracking goals for a team. I have a bodymedia fit that tracks all that I do an well it just inputs it how it is on Sparkpeople. Now here is where that rant comes in.

I should not be scolled for how I input or track a goal through my fit thingy. I am a person and I am an adult and there are ways to come about things without treating an adult like a child! Then be told that another team member is doing something so I better get more miles or we are going to lose. Let me tell you something, it is a TEAM effort it is not all on me and I am almost to the point that I will put the wrong weight in on purpose just to be out! I do not control what other team members on other teams do. I am not traing for anything and well I am working with a bum knee that has basically retrain its self to work properly from being continously injured. I workout accodordling. What miles I have at the end of the day is what I have!!!!!!!!!!! I can't push myself over the limit and risk injury yet again and have a setback. I am not going to let a certain person(s) or team tell me what I am doing is not good enough because IT IS!!!! I have worked so hard to continue to do good on this journey and I am not going to feel bad for doing what I need to do to not suffer and injury, I am not going to push myself over my limit. I AM GOOD ENOUGH AND WHAT I AM DOING IS GOOD ENOUGH! Really so over this and this is not how I wanted to start my day! Thanks team for messing with my morning! Rant over now. I will vlog later. Bye for now!

    I'm so sorry that this has happened to you. Maybe your better off just leaving that team if you believe that they are going to inhibit your progress. Your doing an awesome job. I wish I could find the strength that you have. I'm proud of you... Keep Pushing!!! You're doing an awesome job! Don't let anyone tell you otherwise!!

    Aw, that's terrible :-( You're right, every team member is different with different abilities. It's not up to one person...but as you said, a team effort. I've been on teams before and we all encourage each person to do the best they can AND support them no matter how much or how little they do, not berate them for not doing enough!

    Aw I'm sorry that happened. You're totally right though, you can't push yourself beyond what your body can take just to not 'let the team down'.
    You stick to your guns and just keep on doing your best : )
