Yes, you will have a week to report to your team and learn the ropes if you're new to the BLC! But April 29 is the day that the invites are sent out!

Challenge requirements are different for each team but nothing is difficult - as long as you're eating healthy and exercising! LOL That's what most of the "challenges" ask us to do.

You have already signed up for the Crimson Butterflies team correctly so you're all set!

HI - Each team will have a thread for chatting. Many teams have challenges that involve exercise, but most don't set up a routine for you. You should be able to continue to set up your own routine.

I am a bit confused about some things.
1. Will each team have their own threads?
2. I see a lot of odd descriptions in the main thread for workouts. Will we learn what those are or be able to do our own?
I have a partner that I work out with and we try to take turns coming up with routines. Our goal is to strength train individual muscle groups but do to my work schedule, we sometimes have to double up.
Thanks in advance.

Team assignments will be announced when registration closes. We are usually able to give people their first choice unless a team is closed because it's full. But we need to wait until registration ends in case we need to shuffle people to fill other teams.

You can check the list to see if your registration has been completed. Here is the link to that list:
www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_mes
sa
geboard_thread.asp?board=32418x68423R>x72106454


Please do check the lists because I do make mistakes! LOL If you have registered and you are not on the list, contact BLC-ADMIN or GRACIEC by SpMail!


Invites to the BLC41 Team will go out August 28th!

We encourage all of our members to participate depending on their abilities. If you're doing PT for any reason, that is your exercise & you can count it toward any "requirements" in challenges. We always accept modification of any form of exercise. Come join us and there will be a team that fits your needs!

Question:
I am limited in formal exercise as I am not allowed to do any on my feet (recovering from extensive ankle surgery). Would this make me not a great fit for this competition?
I have been thinking about it for a while and I would really like to be a part of an active, motivated, and supportive group, but I don't want to drag my team down because of my limitations. I can do chair exercises, but it's not like I can do hours of them like I could if I was walking or something. Just figured I would ask since I have been trying to make a decision without all of the information.

"The door will open" means that we will start sending out the invites to the new team. Each round, we establish a new Sparks Team for all the registered members. It is a private team so only those invited may join the team.

I would suggest "subscribing" to your team's chat thread. Then you will receive an email when someone posts on your team. You could also put the link to your chat thread in your signature line to take you directly to it. Lastly, bookmark the page so you can find it on your computer instantly! There are lots of ways to access without any problem!

I have a question about introducing myself on my team's thread. It's my first time on the BLC, and I don't know how to find my team thread. I'm on the Groovy Gecko team. I thought I had entered my introduction info, but apparently it was in the wrong thread, because I received mail today saying that I hadn't done it yet.

Mel, the old mailing list team has been closed. This team right here, The BLC Registration Team, is how you get notified of registration. As long as you have joined this team, you will get all future mailings about registration.

Newbies & Former (not BLC35) members will start registering tomorrow, December 1. Registration will be open all of December. Everyone who has joined this team will get a notice of registration.

Registration ends on December 31 and well open doors to the Winter Round on January 3. That gives everyone time to find their new teams and get acquainted with their teammates before we officially start on January 10th.

Starting Weight - Jan. 10
Week 1 - Jan. 10 - 16
Week 2 - Jan. 17 - 23
Week 3 - Jan. 24 - 30
Week 4 - Jan. 31 - Feb. 6
Week 5 - Feb. 7 - 13
Week 6 - Feb. 14 - 20
Week 7 - Feb. 21 - 27
Week 8 - Feb. 28 - March 6
Week 9 - March 7 - 13
Week 10 - March 14 - 20
Week 11 - March 21 - 27
Week 12 - March 28 - April 3
Final Weigh In - April 4

HAPPY-FIT-GAL, you are all set. Now you can hang out here in the Registration Team and chat with other former and future BLCers until we send out the sparkmail invites to BLC34. Once you get the invite (around the end of May) you will then join BLC34.

If I copied and pasted the info and the Registration thread is that all I need to do? I saw someone say we needed to join the BLC 34 team not just the registration team but I can't see how to do that? I have been in the BLC but it was years ago...
Should I just be waiting to see a sparkmail?

My memory sometimes is not so good. Someone please remind how we find out if and what team we are on please. I've done BLC several times and always forget this part.

Woozcat - hi, this is Jane, captain of Resolute Renegades.
CICO is calories in, calories out.

For our team one of the team goals is to eat in a way that creates a weight loss.
For most people that means having a calorie deficit for the week - eating less calories than they burn (exercise and their basic metabolism rate).

Some people don't count calories but they count weight watchers points or Nutrisystem or some other food plan.

I work with people to make this team goal work for them.

About a third tracker - I don't want people to spend a lot of time tracking. In fact I want them to spend more time exercising than on SparkPeople. There are choices such as reporting numbers only at the end of the week (taking the numbers from your other tracker and putting the week total in the Renegade tracker - often reports can be generated to help with this). This takes just a few minutes to enter everything.

Others find it motivating to see that they are (or are not) doing their exercise and food plans as the week progresses.

I hope that helps, if you have any other questions, feel free to sparkmail me.

This is for the RRs but could also be for other teams if they require a CICO tracker.

What is it exactly?

I've been on BLC rounds before, 27-29 including the summer challenges and have always relied heavily on the SP Fitness and Nutrition trackers. Is the CICO different? Or have SP's trackers been updated to include it?

I'm simply not familiar with that terminology and although I think this is the team that most fits my own needs, having a 3rd tracker may make it too cumbersome for me.
