So I got a call from Elizabeth at Healthways (who owns SilverSneakers) late last week to let me know that the company will be coming out to Tamarac Fitness Center to make a light luncheon party in honor of Charlotte. I honestly don’t know if this is being done for all 10 candidates or because Charlotte is such a close second. This event will be on Monday September 22nd at 12:30, immediately following class. If you are a SilverSneakers student at TFC, please mark your calendar and come out to socialize and honor this wonderful woman. While she continues to be many votes behind Grace, from Arizona, she continues to be many, many votes ahead of the other 8 nominees for the Swanson Award. We still have a week to vote, once every day, so if you are on Facebook, please continue to go to the SilverSneakers page and cast your vote for her. Thank you to EVERYONE who has helped her earn almost 1000 votes as of this morning. I am totally impressed and warmed by how many of my friends on Facebook have gone out of their way, each and every day this month, not just to vote, but to spread the word to their Facebook network and encourage them to vote as well. You have all made a huge difference in the outcome and I appreciate each and every one of you and your efforts. I know this celebration in Charlotte’s honor is going to mean a lot to her. How many 95 year old’s get to be celebrated for anything other than a birthday? Think about it…..
I haven’t been blogging much — I have been spending my blogging time doing the 21 day meditation challenge along with Mitch…and Roxbury (the cat) who purrs without pause as she lies in savasana. I would video it, except she really just lies there–but it is quite obvious how soothing it is for any living thing!….Anyway, today is day 15 and that means we have just one more week…Interestingly enough, Mitch and I did our daily meditation at the beach yesterday and had the exact same experience (thinking we might have dozed off and then forgetting what the mantra was). One thing I have learned about meditation is that however it turns out, it was exactly what was needed at that time. No judgement. No good meditations or bad meditations…Hoping we will be able to continue to keep a routine once this one is over. It’s the third time I am doing the 21 day challenge and it just gets better each time.
Since I got up extra early this morning, I thought I would check in, but time is up so I just want to wish you all an easy yet productive Monday. I will be doing a lot of subbing later this week and next, so I will keep you (the SilverSneakers students) posted. For this week, I will be subbing Thursday and Friday at 10 along with my regular classes. There will be no 8:30 am class this (or next) Friday.
Make it a great day.
