Okay... so this has not been my best round.
All I can say about that is that between both physical and mental health issues, I've managed to go way up this round, rather than down. Whatever. My fault and I OWN it.
BUT... still would have been in much worse shape without the BLC.
One of the things that is BEST about Spark are the amazing, supportive teams that you can find everywhere. One of the key components of health/weight loss is having support you can count on. And boy, have I had that support, both through the BLC and other wonderful teams that I've been part of in the past.
For me, the BLC, and Azure specifically, is the fit that is just right. I feel extremely lucky to have found that combination.
But even with the best support, this battle with weight, at least for me, is all in my head. If I'm on my game, I succeed. Maybe not with the speed I want, but I do succeed.
I've had the extreme pleasure, however, of seeing two MOMs on my team who are just amazing, several others who are losing, losing, losing and someone who's had a healthy pregnancy.
My goals for between this Wednesday (when Round 27 ends) and the start of the next round, is to get back to at least 30 minutes of exercise five days/week, tracking 6/7 days and hopefully lose 5 lbs. I don't usually set weight goals, but I want to get a good start on moving the scale down again.
During the next round, I am going to regain my good habits of tracking and exercise. I am going to find good "tools" for stress relief that don't involve food. I am going to participate in, and complete (or best I can given a few physical limitations), whatever my team mate, Evelyn, throws at me via TnT. And I am going to be a good team mate who can inspire others.
I started out in the paragraph above phrasing each section with "I want to", but then realizing I needed to switch it to "I am going to". And I am. So there.
