$$$$ Surviving the 100th day/ Zija/Moringa/Zumba!!!

Notice the $$$ in the title.  $$$$ is always a popular subject in my blog. :) I get lots of hits on those posts.

This was around 6:45 when I leave for work.

I’ve been busy with the usual school stuff and working out.  I have really upped my workout schedule and the ounces (It’s slow) coming off.  I have been averaging about 5+hours a week of Zumba and/or Body Pump!  I love it!!!!  Not only have I bought me some Zumba pants, I participated in a Flash mob and an hour and a half Zumba Master class. The trick to working out is finding something you love it do!!!  Update: I lost .8 as of my Saturday weigh-in.  Can you say, "Yahoo!"?

We celebrated our 100th Day of school with lots of special activities.

Teachers now have to be up on the latest technology.  Here is one of my students using the interactive smartboard.

Writing "I would like a 100 ____________."

These hats had 10 strip that the students drew 10 things on.

They loved this challenge: standing 100 dominoes up in a row. At least one group did it!!

We made 100 day trail mix.  They chose 10 of 10 things and loved it!!

Friday was the 100th day of school and I planned special “100” activities for the day.  It was fun for the kids, but it meant that I didn’t get all of my usual housekeeping, paper work kind of stuff done.  So, I brought it home and I guess I’ll need to get that done tomorrow!!

You may remember that I mentioned a miracle plant that I learned about in Honduras.  We helped a couple of the missionaries down there plant it while we were there.  This plant comes from India and it is considered a miracle plant because of all of the nutrients.  It was an interesting coincidence that right after I came back from Honduras, I started hearing about a product made from the moringa plant called Zija. Slowly, but surely, I heard of Facebook and church friends who were selling it. 

To make a long story short, I have  started using it and selling Zija. It really came in handy when my older son got really sick last weekend.  He spent last Sunday in the ER and couldn't keep any anything down. It settled his stomach and he finally started getting better.  I will keep you informed and here is a link to more information:

Flash Mob:
I went from one weekend in the ER with my son to the next weekend in a flash mob.  It was fun and great and I'm sharing the video that Nick took of our Zumba flash mob.  Enjoy!

I also had fun at another Zumba event. Some of the local instructors brought a master teacher from Memphis.  About 200 Zutmba enthusiasts danced and had a great time for about an hour and a half.  We had so much fun that the time was up before we knew it.


  1. Well, In all zija contributes it's complete conversion option of body fat as for weight loss and also guarantees for getting complete moringa goodness from it.


  2. I just now saw your comment. Thank you!! I use and can distribute Zija, but haven't been to all of the training sessions. So far, I have liked the product and how it makes me feel!!
