Parting is such sweet sorrow....
Saturday, December 07, 2013
I joined BLC in round 9. A good spark friend, who also has become a good friend that I have met and text on a regular basis, got me in. I loved my first round as a Peach. I think because it was new and exciting to me. I thought our group was close knit and tons of fun. We gave our all on challenges and we also CHATTED. I remember fondly one Saturday afternoon when a teammie was at the home opener for the NEW Yankee stadium. The Yankees lost miserably and we kept talking and feeling bad for our friend.
The round I was closest too were the TROOPERS. I am still friends with many from that round. We didn't do so well with the challenges, but we sure had fun and loved one another.
The round I am proudest of......is the current round...the SUNSET STINGRAYS. The team for the FIRST round has done well....even had our name in LIGHTS once. I have to say....I think that Lori is the best captain ever. I do. She is organized and thoughtful. I also like the people on the team.
I have learned a lot from BLC. I may have learned nutrition from weight watchers, but my fitness solely comes from BLC. For me, having both have been my keys for the road of success.
Never in my wildest dreams would I consider doing a half marathon. In May of 2015....I shall embark on a trip to Ohio to meet up with fellow sparklers to participate. I shall be ready.
I owe BLC a lot....friends....fitness.....
and so it is with bittersweet emotions....I have decided to step away.
I have not made this decision lightly.
As weight loss has happened and changed.......so have I.
I am more into MY program that works for me.
As some may have noticed....I am less on the computer and more into my unvirtual world. I am so into weight watchers and my time there has grown. My future with them will entail becoming a part time leader and I still love to write.
I have decided that my time in the virtual world will focus more on my friends and continued focus on nutrition as I train for my 13.1
It is sadness and joy I experience when I read posts for the upcoming round in January for BLC 24. I am happy for those that are continuing and for those that are beginning.
I wish you ALL the best........
