I have wrestled all this week with the decision: to re-enroll for Fall or not-to-re-enroll: that is the question I am tossing and turning over and over in my mind.
I have not yet put my name on the list and perhaps the enrollment will fill up before I get over there to do so, and that will be the deciding factor..not so sure about that.
On the negative side:
I have some rather good reasons--or are they excuses--to NOT come back as a team member for the Fall Challenge. You could probably take some of them on as your own.
Too much going on in real life-being pulled in too many directions and not doing any of them well. I need to focus on less and do things better.
DH often asks me 'what are you doing' when I am on the computer. I think he sometimes wants me to just be 'here' for him and not pre-occupied with this machine (and my friends outside his life)
I've been a FIRECRACKER ever since before we were FIRECRACKERS, when we were OVERFLOW campers, and maybe I need a break--(lame excuse
Perhaps if I take a break, I'll come back refreshed and 'ready to jump in with vigor'
I have several real life physical factors that keep me from doing all that I would like to do as a team member, so if I can't be 100%, I won't participate at all--I guess that's rather lame, but that is how I usually do things in real life--100% of me gets in the game.
I'm trying to learn a 'new way of eating/living since I've been diagnosed diabetic (I hate this new life) and it is taking A LOT OF TIME which I used to spend on this team. I believe a team player should devote lots of time on team work.
NOW--THE POSITIVES--WHY I SHOULD RE-ENROLL AS A TEAM MEMBER:
I LOVE working on the team-it keeps me aware of what I eat and makes me stay focused on the values of each bite--numbers wise.
I LOVE chatting with team members, but this challenge I did NOT chat much at all, I really was too involved in trying to get a grip on my need to get control of my eating habits.
I also fell down 2 weeks ago--hard--in my hospital lobby and ended up on a cane for 2 weeks, nursing an injured knee-hip-ankle. Finally getting better but still a bit sore--should be fine for the new challenge.
I don't spend a lot of time with 'words', I'd rather 'do' than to 'say' so I'll close for now and go over to the 'sign-up' team for the Fall Challenge and become a part of the new Challenge.
Y'all come over and join the Fall Challenge--lose a few more lbs and have fun doing it.
NEVER GIVE UP---THAT'S MY MOTTO
CAN BE YOURS
PS...I POSTED THIS "NEVER QUIT" JUST A WHILE AGO--THOUGHT I'd BRING IT UP HERE. Now, if I posted this, I cannot quit--RIGHT?
Today, I promise I will not quit.
I pledge that no matter, how many ups and downs I pass through, I will continue on my journey.
I pledge to make a NEW START today, and forgive myself for my past, and to stop being so critical of myself.
I pledge to take control of myself, to stop making excuses, and stop blaming other people or situations.
I pledge to treat myself as I would my best friend, because that is who I am.
I pledge to stay in the race and to be a WINNER!
REPEAT: to BE A WINNER--I WILL LOST THESE EXTRA POUNDS.
JOIN ME TODAY.
