So I know some of you are excited to hear about how my belly dancing class went last weekend, or if you’re not, I have been wanting to tell you all about it. I ended up going with my sister in law Amy and one of my good friends, Jana. It was really cool to experience something new with some buddies (that way I had someone to laugh with). The instructor was incredible, she was very patient with us all, but she made sure that we got the moves down before we went to the next. After 2.5 hours of working it out I was a little worried that the next day I would feel like I needed a hip replacement, but I felt it mostly in my abs and lower belly……….. Yippee! Most of you know I have been wanted to find a way to target that baby bump (hell, it’s a baby bolder….. but you know what I mean), so I was happy to find a way that was fun. I’m really hoping that they will offer more classes in this area.

Okay serious time:

I feel bad cause I have not made the time this past week to post anything. Last week was a difficult week for me. It started off great but by mid week I just was not in the spirit of things. I had a really bad headache and a bad episode of seizures. I haven’t really been sick like this in awhile. I ended up going to the emergency room and they were able to get things under control and I rested the next few days. My doctor changed my meds and at the moment I feel pretty good. The only thing that really bothered me was my blood work came back not so good. There is some kind of activity, so they ordered a few other test, including an MRI. So now we wait……………. I hate that part the most. That’s when fear tries to set in and says the cancer is back or wonder what now. I have to remember that this situation is in God’s hands and I know I am healed. I am so looking forward to the day that I don’t sit in a doctor’s office with a lump in my throat and my fist clinched to brace myself for whatever news I am going to be told. So this week I will find out what is going on. The doctors do feel from what test results have come back that I may have another tumor on my brain as well as my spine. So this week will be a week of prayer and I will try to stay calm...... it's so hard not to get worked up.

So no big shock I didn't have a very active week on the fitness level, but I did manage to go for some peaceful walks with my husband & the baby. I really enjoy when I have their company. I know my husband wanted me to rest, but he knows how important it is for me to be out there enjoying life. I don’t want just to sit by and wait.

Well peeps I promise I will post more this week, and get back in my routine. I got some really cute pics I want to share. Hope you are all having a great Monday!
