Today's Highlight -- Fun one about meeting a SP member

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Wednesday, August 08, 2012

Hit Like if you did at least 10 minutes of fitness today!

60 for me. Today's highlight was a fun one. I had a breakfast meeting and the hostess at the restaurant recognized my SparkPeople T-shirt and said she's a member. So I signed a copy of our book The Spark and gave it to her. Always a thrill to meet SparkPeople when I'm out (on my last flight, the lead flight attendant was a SP member). What was your highlight? -- SparkGuy

    My highlight was getting up early (even though I don't have to work today) and doing 45 minutes of cardio before the kids got up. A great start to the day!

    My highlight was reaching a major goal last night. It has taken months of planning to make it out to Denver, CO to visit mmy step son.
We hope to also reach another goal while out here-hiking a 14,000 foot peak!

    Thanks, SparkGuy, for doing what you do. Keep it up and I might nominate you for something...like President maybe. Ok, you're having too much fun with SparkBoy. Sign me just another SP out there...we're everywhere.

    How cool! I've never met any other SP members, but I always tell people about the site when they ask about my weight loss!

My highlight was going for a 45 minute walk with Princess right after the rain stopped - we are staying in Brian Head, Utah, and during our walk we went above 10,000' elevation. It's a little harder to breathe but I really enjoy how nice it is up this high!

    emoticon Hi there, Chris! How have you been? emoticon

What happened to you is what I like to call "God winks." These are situations or occurrences that seem like sheer coincidences, but are really affirmations from God that you are at the right place at the right time and on the right path of your journey.

Don't you love it when that happens? Serendipity at its best...

Today, my God wink was this week's Community Highlight. It was exactly what I've been telling myself and feeling, and there it was, in black and white, as if telling me "Get back to it, woman! Just do it."

emoticon

I'm so glad you got a chuckle and had a heart-warming tickle by running into Sparkers. It must have felt so great to have met two random people whose lives your hard work and vision has affected in great and positive ways!

emoticon

Take care.

Debbie

    Tried on an old pair of "skinnier" jeans and was able to zip and button 'em!!! Have kind of hit a wall lately, both physically and with the spirit. Think I was actually trying to set myself up for the disappointment (crazy huh?) and was pleasantly surprised. Hey, they may be tight and I shouldn't wear them in public, but it IS progress since I could barely get them over my hips and had mega inches to lose to button them. I needed that boost:)

    My highlight was getting in some activity and cooking a healthy dinner for my family.
I thought a lot about the self talk message and I am guilty of calling myself "idiot". I like the standard that if you wouldn't say it to someone else, don't say it to yourself. I will try to do this.

    Lucky for that lady! I would love to "run into you" and say thank you in person, but, let me say it here: Thank you for this amazing site. I have paid for Weight Watchers on and off for years and never gotten the results that I'm getting here since I "discovered" the Spark Community. I have used the Tracker portion on and off for years, but it is the community that is making a difference for me right now.

Thanks so much!! emoticon

    Great Story...
My highlight today was...
A friend of mine is a very busy farm marketer with a barn full of animals.
She has customers all day, shops for the produce to sell, feeds her barn etc. etc. etc...
She grabs sweets to eat rather than eating all that good veggies and fruit she sells.
She's not over weight and only her mom has diabetes in her whole family.
Yesterday, I told her that not only obese or over weight people get Diabetes.
And Low and behold, one of the Spark news articles for today was right on that subject.
I emailed it to her. It's nice to have the knowledge and resources of Spark People Always at my fingure tips...
I need you so much and Thank You for being there for me.

Hearing today that I inspired someone to run a half marathon was really humbling too. I cannot imagine myself as an inspiration to others. That blows my mind!
