#TrendyTuesday #GoodSamaritanDay

Written by

NATIONAL GOOD SAMARITAN DAY

Here's the lowdown from National Day Calendar:

National Good Samaritan Day is observed on March 13th.  This day is also known as Good Samaritan Involvement Day. This is a day for unselfish actions to help those in need and to celebrate kindness.

The term “good Samaritan” comes from the Bible parable where a Samaritan helped a stranger who had been robbed and beaten and left to die by the side of the road.  The Samaritan not only cleaned the man’s wounds and clothed him, but took him to an inn where he paid for the man’s care.

The term is used today to describe those who perform acts of kindness for those in need, especially those who are strangers.

 

Here's the crazy part, though. Apparently, this day was started in honor of the death of Catherine “Kitty” Genovese who was murdered near her home on March 13, 1964, in New York City. For Miss Genovese, had just one good Samaritan stepped forward that night, she may be alive today.  Her killer was interrupted two times, each interruption witnessed by neighbors or passersby, but no one called the police. After his third and successful attempt, one person called, but it was too late for Miss Genovese. This event also helped lead to the creation of the nation's 911 system!

What an emotional roller coaster!

Either way, be nice to people. Today and every other day ;)

INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY

Written by

Today we celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievement of women. We've come a long way and of course still have a way to go. International Women's Day always makes me think about how lucky we are to live where we do. There are still a lot of places in the world where women aren't able to do what I am here, right now. I am part of a morning show that is two women, in a building where more than half of our middle management is female. I don't think of it that way very often, but that's the truth and it's pretty awesome.

#TrendyTuesday #OregonTrail

Written by

Oregon Trail has come out in a few forms over the years but Target definitely upped the nostalgia factor with their exclusive handheld version! You have to insert a floppy disk to start the game, it takes batteries and the graphics are amazingly simple like the original. And don't worry, you can still hope the characters you named after frenemies get dysentery ;)

#TRENDYTUESDAY #CAMILACABELLO #HAVANA

Written by

If Camila Cabello's "Havana" with Young Thug seems to be everywhere, that's because it is. A huge song that now reached another milestone to become the first first song led by a woman to top the Pop, Rythmic, and Adult Pop charts. Among all acts, "Havana" is just the ninth song to have hit No. 1 on the Pop Songs, Rhythmic Songs and Adult Pop Songs airplay charts (over the 22 years that all three lists have coexisted). Here's a chronological recap:

"One Sweet Day," Mariah Carey & Boyz II Men, 1995-96
"Livin' La Vida Loca," Ricky Martin, 1999
"Mirrors," Justin Timberlake, 2013
"Blurred Lines," Robin Thicke feat. T.I. + Pharrell, 2013
"Happy," Pharrell Williams, 2014
"All of Me," John Legend, 2014
"Am I Wrong," Nico & Vinz, 2014
"Uptown Funk!," Mark Ronson feat. Bruno Mars, 2015
"Havana," Camila Cabello feat. Young Thug, 2017-18

#TrendyTuesday #royalwedding #markyourcalendar

Palace officials have confirmed Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will get married on May 19th! The service will be held at St. George's Chapel and is scheduled to begin at 6 A.M. central, so you'll have to get up early on a Saturday if you want to watch it live. 

I'm more interested in watching the reception based on the rumors of who could be performing. The latest heavy rumor is Ed Sheeran! Coldplay, Bruce Springsteen, and Rod Stewart may be invited to play as well as Pharrell Williams, Duran Duran, and Elton John. Elton already moved a couple of his concert dates due to a "scheduling conflict" and Sheeran is scheduled to be in Ireland on 5/19 but that could be moved as well...

That was then...this is now!

Written by

I have worked at Z93 for almost 14 years.  I am grateful every day for the career that I have been blessed with!  When I started working at Z93 back in 2004, I was in great shape.  I was 23 years old and I was teaching dance, I enjoyed working out at the gym, and I was very active.  Life changed dramatically when my sole focus became my radio career.  It started with working 3rd shift, which was a major change in my life schedule.  After a couple of years I switched to 2nd shift and four years later, I changed my schedule again to host the morning show in 2007!  That was hard on my body and it seemed to take me a long time to get used to the eating and sleeping habits of each shift change.  Add in some major health problems along the way, and before you know it...I had gained 80 pounds over 13 years.  I'm still not exactly sure how I let that happen, but I did.  I guess it was the simple fact that eating fast food, anything that I could heat up in a microwave or anything fast, was easy for a girl on the go.  I also did my fair share of going out clubbing with friends and enjoying cocktails! :) That leads to eating more bad food and making poor nutrition choices.  It's a vicious cycle.  One that too many of us are far too familiar with, unfortunately.

I suffered a traumatic brain injury in January 2017.  Countless doctor visits for therapy and healing meant getting weighed a lot.  That was the first time I had weighed myself in a long time.  And it was like a punch to the gut each time I got on that scale.  And finally, I had a tough conversation with my doctor about my need to lose some weight in order to be more healthy.  It made me face the truth about where I had ended up.  Deep down I knew it, but when you hear it from a healthcare professional...somehow it becomes real.  It was time to do something major because I had been given a second chance at life.  I couldn't waste another minute...

I joined NuYou Weight Loss and More in February 2017 and in just 9 months I turned my life around.  80 pounds gone and over 80 inches melted away!  The programs at NuYou are incredible and the support is even better.  Before NuYou, nothing worked and I felt very defeated.  I just felt stuck.  Two of my friends showed me that their lives had improved because of NuYou and I wanted to be the next person to change my life.  So, I did!  (see more below)

I look at these pictures from before the weight loss program with NuYou, and I honestly have a hard time believing that these are pictures of ME.  I feel a lot of emotions.  Sadness, embarrassment, anger, but most of all...I feel free.  Thanks to NuYou Weight Loss and More, I'm not that person anymore.  I'm no longer unhealthy.  I'm stronger, I'm confident, I'm happy, I feel sexy, and most importantly...I am HEALTHY!  My only wish is that I would have done this sooner.  I can't get back the time that I wasted, but I can move forward knowing that I made the best decision for myself, my husband, and my family.

I firmly believe that it doesn't matter what size you are.  If YOU are comfortable with who you are and YOU feel healthy, and YOU are at peace with yourself, more power to you! I was not at peace with myself...but I am now.
