And the article itself (sorry for the glare...I tried it without the flash and it was too dark):

Z-Life Magazine!

Thursday, May 30, 2013

Zumba Fitness have released the front cover of the Z-Life summer edition that I'm in. I had a chance to see the article and I'm giddy!! I'm so blessed to be able to share my story with y'all. I know how much those success stories meant to me when I started out on my journey.

Anyway, here's a picture of the cover of the magazine (edited to add: the front cover is a picture of Zumba Education Specialist Kass Martin...not me...no matter how much I wish it to be *lol*). I believe the article will be online in a few weeks. I'll keep y'all updated!! emoticon

* And a quick update: I'm healing really well and physically feel great. It's going to take a while to heal emotionally, but we have a great support system in friends and family down here. Our friends have been checking up on us and making meals for us. We're blessed!

Sadness

Sunday, May 26, 2013

We just got home from the hospital, yesterday. We lost the baby...there was no more heartbeat. emoticon I'm home resting for the next couple of days and it will be a couple of weeks before I'm allowed to resume normal activities.

This is a difficult time for our family as this is our 2nd loss in the space of a year. We appreciate all prayers and positive thoughts.

    So sorry for your loss! Life is so uncertain, things change so quickly, so many emotions, so many unplanned things happen but somehow we adapt, we learn from it and grow stronger and we are more compassionate for others because of it. Your grieving will go on for a long time and sometimes will hit you when you least expect it. Allow yourself to be human and give yourself time, but also trust in the Lord to guide you through. Trust that your precious baby is in heaven and that you will meet someday.
God Bless,
Michele

The Spark Solution

Friday, May 24, 2013

Good Morning, Lovelies!!

I bought Sparkpeople's book "The Spark Solution" and they have quote from me in there! It's under the section "Tips from Successful SparkPeople Members to Help You Stay Strong".

Also, I've been reading through the book and it's pretty amazing! I loved all the stories and there are so many recipes I'm just itching to try. They even have suggestions for lighter versions of your favorite higher calorie meals.

I highly recommend purchasing this book. There's some really stellar advice in there to help you reach your goals. (and no SparkPeople have not asked me or paid me to say this emoticon ) emoticon

Have an awesome day, my friends!! emoticon

Tornado Check-In!

Monday, May 20, 2013

Tonight was a very sleepless night for me, as we were under a tornado watch and at almost 1am, the sirens went off and we were under a warning! I had to grab my four kiddos and hubby and all squish into our shoe closet as that's the most centrally located place in our home. We're all dragging a little this morning and the storms are still going to continue into today and tomorrow.

How is everyone else doing? Staying safe? I heard Oklahoma and Texas were hit pretty hard. emoticon My thoughts and prayers are with them. emoticon

    I'm there with you no emoticon the weather radio's kept going off. It hit last night in Carthage near were we live, but not us and I don't think that anyone was hurt. And as I write this we (my pup and I ) just got back in after the sirens stopped And called to check in on hubby and the girls. The real God send today is that his load was changed last minute (which isn't new) but he was to be going to OK. And the the news came on about the tornado's Sorry but prayers go out to everyone that was caught in the storms emoticon emoticon

  May Everyone remain Safe and get through this Huricane and Tornado Season. May God comfort and watch over the ones that was in the Path on the Tornado. The Homeless, the Loss Ones, the Injured Ones, and provide what they need in the days and months ahead. My Thoughts and Prayers are with them. God Blessings to Everyone. Have a Super Great Day. Take Care. Hugs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I woke up to "all clear" at 4:30 this morning near St. Louis Missouri- I had no idea there was so much activity because I picked yesterday to keep my media off (of all days not to have a heads up on emoticon !) .... whew! emoticon
