What I learned from the 5K last eve is I need to make them more social. I went by myself, ran by myself and I missed some opportunities to socialize. I even missed the group picture of the Galloway group. There were lots of people I knew there. I need to be friendlier and less competitive. So, my highlight was learning. Glad I finished. Next time I'll have more fun!!

Good for you, Cyndi.

I'm looking forward to packet pick up for my 5K tomorrow. I just practiced piano for 40 minutes and read a chapter of Big Magic, which is quite interesting.

Piano recital I'm sure will be my highlight today. Group is going to new Dairy Queen close to our home and my challenge will be to participate well. Maybe just coffee? Or???

Looks like the highlights is fizzling. On to something else??

Senior Dance was lots of fun this morning. I liked "shopping" in my closet. Now that I can't wear heels my dresses don't look so good so I wear a lot of pants. Found a blouse I usually wear with a skirt that looked really good with my khaki Dockers. I have sparkly shoes, they are casual and my orthotics fit in them fine, but at least they have a bit of flash to them!!

Walked all over looking at new construction today. 26 new homes for sale in a community on Banana Lake almost finished; the posts are up, but the gate for the community isn't. I heard another 300 homes are going in to the neighborhood nearby. I'm a little worried about traffic as I age, but I'll just take it one step at a time and not worry. I did find another entrance to the construction area, so not all of the traffic may be on our side.

Cyndi, I bet Mike is really good at trivia, and you are no slouch, either. Fun!!

Wonderful cantaloupe this morning. Food is my highlight today? Okay. I had a great run this morning, too, and saw several bright cardinals in my neighborhood.

Got Gwen to school just at the last moment (before we would have had to go to office and she'd be tardy.) Drove Natalie to school as usual, but DD had headache, took meds, threw up, went back to bed, so she asked me to take Gwen to school. Whew. I made it!

Magnolias are finally getting low enough for me to enjoy the fragrance, although not on my tree yet. However, yesterday's storm knocked a heavenly petal off our tree and the girls and I enjoyed it immensely!

Today my highlight has to be the Tiger Trot 5K. The anticipation is good; I think the actual race will be lots of fun!

Oh,, yes, Wednesday's dinner with Cyndi and Mike was special. Forgive me for not mentioning it!

Today the 2 grandgirls and the granddog stayed with us. Granddog is still here and he is so sweet. (Josh didn't want to get fur on his uniform, so they are coming after dinner to get him.)
He was a highlight today for sure! Very soft. Very sweet.

Ran this morning after I took Natalie to school. It's going to get too hot to run after 8am, but for today, there was a great breeze and it was perfect in the shade. I like my blog today. Check it out!

Highlights include exercises 1-14 in Hannon. Enjoyed my piano practice this morning. besides scales and exercises, I'm playing:
* Give My Regards to Broadway
* There's No Business Like Show Business (from Annie Get Your Gun)
* Music Box Dancer
* The Caisson Song (Gwen chose this one for me to learn)

Got my 7500+ steps in before lunch. Lovely walk this morning; now raining.

Wonderful sunrise run this morning. Ran with Deanna who has lost 60 pounds recently. She is looking so good! Brendan, our pace group leader, did a great job of reading the map and helping us find a new route. Pix in blog -- the sunrise was gorgeious!

I'm in the foreground and Deanna is slightly behind and to the left. That pix is from the race we ran a week ago.




I should try to get more of my running group to join SparkPeople. I've tried without much success.

Much better day yesterday. Highlight: Stepped on scale this morning and down 2.2 pounds from yesterday morning. I'm back in the acceptable range but hope to lose about 4 more pounds. It will take work and then diligence to keep it off.

Today we are going to the Cookie Concert. Imperial Symphony Orchestra plays at no cost in Branscomb Auditorium at Florida Southern College. From 2-3pm kids can meet musicians and play instruments. From 3-4pm the orchestra performs. We have taken the girls several years. I expect it to be our highlight today!

Today my friend Shelly is doing packet pick up for me and will bring my race number to me at 6pm. I am looking forward to the 5K tomorrow; enjoying the anticipation is my highlight today! The idea of running on the tarmac with Blue Angel planes and 20 balloons taking off just sounds exciting. Already have most of my clothes laid out. Not sure what time Shelly is coming for me, so haven't set the alarm yet. Well, my watch is set for 5am but may not need to get up that early for my 7:30 race. And my orthotics are in the shoes I'm wearing for today, so will need to put them in my race shoes. Anyway, I'm trained for it -- reasonably trained for my current level of fitness and limitations. Not putting speed pressure on me, going to do as good as I feel and be happy with that!


Kids are spending the night as DSIL is working and DD is at a workshop out of town. She is learning about scars and scar tissue as it relates to massage, which may help Natalie and all of us. Hope to get them off to bed on time and get a good night's sleep anyway.

Good talk with Natalie while driving her to school this morning. Foggy, but no problems driving. She shared about test today and challenges in her life.

Group run and afterward fun coffee was the highlight of my morning for sure. Absolutely worth getting up at 5am. Sunrise was lovely.

Good going, Jane. I need to be a bit more mindful than I've been this week. Will truly try.

My highlight today is the visit from my granddog. DD was so sweet to bring him when she brought the kids. He is soft and sweet although much more high energy dog than what we were used to. Kids did pretty good piano practice today without as much fuss as sometimes. Also, Natalie looked up a recipe for PlayDough on the Internet and the 2 girls made some since theirs had dried out. We also washed a lot of PlayDough toys and enjoyed playing with them.

My highlight today was finishing my fifth (5!) day of mindful eating.
That is a big deal for me. Bring on Day 6.

My sweet-sad highlight today was little Gwen asking Gary and me if it would be okay with us if she changed the name of her stuffed animal dog to Kahlua.

Highlight today was getting up at 5am, getting ready and going for group run. And when I got home at 8:20, Gwen was still asleep and I hadn't been missed!

Here's Martin with his dog, Zooey, during our Lake Hollingsworth walk yesterday.




Today's highlight was Senior Dance. I got Natalie to school early so I could do my quarterly coffee duty. Gary helped, too. I have a slight groin pull so took it easy and mostly danced slow ones after we were done with coffee. Hoping to be able to run on Saturday, but we'll see!

My highlight was the end of my 3 mile run. I usually feel like running, although often I don't feel like pushing pace. Yesterday I just really didn't feel like running at all, but I decided to give it a try. I felt better and better as I ran and ended up feeling good by the end of my 35 minute workout in my neighborhood. Part of the reason I didn't feel like running was that I had overeaten. Am trying hard to have a good eating day today as I don't want to repeat that yukky feeling.

Not sure I know how to do a like from an iPad, either, Cyndi. In fact I know I don't know how. Oh, well. You can pretty much count on I "like" any positive thing you type!!

My highlight yesterday was the play "Titanic, the Musical". As expected, it was very entertaining and well done. Enjoyed my run yesterday morning, too.


Today one of our dancer friends is having a 90th birthday party. I was so surprised to fine out how old she is, I truly thought she was at least a decade younger. Such a good role model. Happy, friendly person!!

I'm computer illiterate, unlike Marsha, and can't figure out how to do a like from my iPad! LOL.
Yesterday's highlight was a great, healthy trip to the grocery store.
Today's highlight was running errands and having lunch outside under a big umbrella. It was sunny with a cool breeze. A perfect Florida day!

I expect Senior Dance to be a highlight today. Got Natalie driven to school already this morning and I'm dressed to dance. Smoothed my hair, and pulled the crown back in a barrette, but wonder if I shouldn't really get a haircut. Gary got his mop cut yesterday and he looks much better. Maybe I should follow suit. I'm thinking about it!!

Sorry Marsha, I won't be at the theatre again until April 18. What's your date for "Tuesdays with Morrie"? I can see if the slots are filled for volunteers on that night.

Today's highlight will be our drive down to West Palm Beach so we can view the Downton Abbey exhibit. I expect tomorrow's highlight will be the exhibit!

Thanks, Donna. I would love to meet you. We will be at Titanic on March 16. Will you? If so I'll be looking for a time you aren't too busy and introduce myself. We have season tickets to both Winter Haven and Lakeland theaters and really enjoy the stage productions.

Yesterday's highlight was my sweet dog being thankful after being fed. I blogged about it!

Marsha - I know you'll enjoy the show. I try to volunteer at 3-4 performances of each show - all wonderful people.

Today's highlight was a bunch or fun people at craft group. We laugh and have a good time while working on our projects.

Donna, thanks so much! We have tickets for Saturday night. Can't wait. So good of you to usher! We dance Thursdays with Bonnie who often ushers. Can't think of her last name. You might know who I'm thinking of.


My highlight today was getting Gary to the doctor. Going to go get his Rx in just a minute. So relieved doc says he doesn't need to be in the hospital. He is so weak. Hasn't eaten significantly for 6 days and every symptom Pepto Bismo is designed for. After that I'm dropping in to the Senior Games closing ceremonies at the Lakeland Center. Gary actually won a bronze in chess (he got a call last eve) and I'm suppose to go pick it up. He didn't think he'd placed. I may be able to get my shirt and some good freebies that they hand out, too. Then I'll get the kids after school. So, lots to do! Driving Natalie to school in the foggy dark this morning was a victory of sorts, too. And my weight -- 129.6 -- is definitely a victory!!

Thanks for creating this thread, Jane.

I've been posting my highlights in my blogs, but I'm going to start putting them here. I didn't have a very good one today. Will look for a good one tomorrow!

After SparkGuy Chris Downie posted his idea of posting a daily highlight(s), several of us had thought sorta simultaneously that this would be a great thread . . . and encourage each of us to watch during our daily walk for those moments of "highlight" that we feel comfortable reporting to the team.

SparkGuy Chris has been recovering for several months from surgery to remove a brain tumor. His story is compelling and so interesting.

To read his blog about "highlights" you may find it here::
