Winning the Day!!

Happy Wednesday Peeps!!

I’ve been an absolute slug lately!! It’s  bad…..BUT I was tired of the couch JUST ENOUGH to get off of it finally today. I just had 2 days off but I felt very tired and blah and was doing well to not eat the whole house. For real it was bad!! I ate a whole bag of…..get this…..caramel corn mini rice cakes!! Hilarious really! Rice cakes…..at least it wasn’t candy or fried foods. I tracked it while shaking my head at myself. Oh Chrissi πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„

Last week I gained the 1.4 that I lost the week before. How annoying. See I told you I’ve been a slug. I started my fight back today. I did 2 miles walking on the treadmill. I still have work to do so I can’t be stagnant yet!! Just gotta get moving!!

My Love is on the road this whole week, YUCK!! 😑 Me and Bailey are quite boring without him. He’ll be back Friday. Then I work Saturday and Sunday. Good times! We both have Monday off!! 

I grabbed myself some fruit and caffeine before work and I’m pleased with my choices.  πŸ‘πŸΌ Seasonal mix of fruit was yummy! 


I feel like work could be painfully quiet this evening. We shall see πŸ™‚ 

Well my friends I gotta go…oh Sally Hansen wants one of my Mani Monday pics for their instagram. My cute little stubby fingernails πŸ’…πŸΌπŸ˜† Go me! #itsallaboutthehashtags #gottagettowork 


See ya Monday!!! πŸ’œπŸ˜πŸ‘πŸΌ

Wellness Wednesday πŸ’œπŸ˜πŸΆ

We are fresh off of vacation! Pooped doesn’t even begin to explain my level of exhaustion. I feel like the trip was great, lots of fun!! To say it was busy would totally be an understatement. We didn’t have any downtime at all. We went hard all 5 days. So many people to catch up with it was practically dizzying.


We ate the local cuisine. πŸ˜† Kelly’s for lobster rolls, Kane’s for maple bacon donuts, why no?!?🍩 We went to Our pizza place. πŸ• Also we had some homemade Italian deliciousness, cleaned up tacos and some great Chinese. It really was fun being naughty. I didn’t weigh in last week since we were traveling, yes I know there’s WW in Saugus but a week off won’t kill me. Now that we’re home I’m totally reigning it in. Back to working the plan and staying accountable!! Friday’s weigh in should be interesting. 😳😳😳

Next up the garden!! I’m all ready to start it in my head now just to actually do it. I’m working all weekend so it’ll need to be Friday that I start it all. I have all of my notes. I got some purple garden accessories from My Love and My Pup because they love me!! πŸ˜πŸ’œ
We’re finally having some delightful weather!!! πŸŒžβ˜€οΈπŸ˜Ž It’s pretty exciting!! Hopefully My Pup will be better behaved if we go exploring again. I can’t limit myself to walking only the neighborhood, how boring would that be?! ☺️🐢🐾  


I seem to be feeling a bit better which is nice. I try to rest when I’m not “On”. I work with the public so I feel like an actress sometimes. Don’t we all?! πŸ˜‰ I’m working 4 of the next 5 days so that’s good! Back to making some money instead of spending it!!! πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ’°πŸ’Έβœ‚οΈπŸ’‡πŸ» Ahhh the joys of vacation!!!

All great stuff!!! I hope you all have a great rest of your week and weekend!!! See you next week!! πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ’œπŸ˜πŸ˜ŽπŸ’‡πŸ»

Wellness Wednesday 😁

Good afternoon peeps!

I hope everyone is having a great week! My Malibu Peach is pristine so all is well! 😁

Spring in west Michigan is beautiful! Everything is sprouting and budding  and looking great!!! That being said, the goddamn gray skies and rain stinks!! Today humidity has reared its ugly ugly head, I’m not impressed!! It’s time for me to get myself gardening gloves and get pulling on the weeds that currently live where I wanna see flowers, and vegetables!! 

Last week at WW I stayed the same. Still a win to me. 😁 I finally made burrito bowls with the riced cauliflower and rotisserie chicken. It was a success for sure!! Easy and yummy, 2 must haves when My Love is away. It was just an overnight but it was way early Monday to way late on Tuesday, technically Wednesday. Gross! Poor love. 


I had my appointment with my meds doctor Monday and we’re upping my antidepressant a bit to see if I can shake this funk. It’s been lingering far too long!! I hate it because I don’t even look like myself, my face looks different and my eyes look miserable. I’m uncomfortably quiet and I’m ready to fight I feel like. 

I have had the opportunity to walk the neighborhood with my little furry love, Bailey of course!! The past 2 days we’ve walked the hood. 😁 Gorgeous spring weather for a few days until today. πŸΆπŸΎπŸŒ·β˜€οΈ


My walking buddy πŸ’œ

Next week Boston!! I’m looking forward to all of the fun we’ll have!! It’s been about 11 months! We’re hoping for good weather! We know the company and food will be great! I’ll have to weigh in while I’m there. It may not be pretty!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Anyhow great family, great friends good times!! Hello lobster rolls and pizza!! πŸ»πŸ•

Have a great rest of your week! 

Till next time! πŸ˜πŸ’œπŸŒΈπŸ’…πŸΌπŸΎπŸΆ

It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood🐾🌸🌷🌱

Today is Manicure Monday!!!

I’m in love with this weeks color! Its Sally Hansen Miracle Gel in Punkish Purple. It’s the Gel with no light necessary. Since my nails are trashed from improperly removing my acrylics the Manicure didn’t last the full week but it was my fingers not the polish. It’s as my Mom would say is Chrissi Purple. It’s my new favorite!! It’s tricky to get off the finger after painting though. The easy solution is to NOT get the nail polish on the finger! πŸ’…πŸΌJust saying 😜 We will always see the left hand holding the polish. I’m definitely without a doubt NOT ambidextrous!! πŸ˜‚πŸ’…πŸΌ


I like doing the Sally Hansen Miracle Gels because it takes no extra time from regular polish and it lasts longer. I’m clumsy and I’ve been known to ruin a mani in less than 10 minutes. Yes it’s true. The polish wears off before it’ll chip. I just think it’s a solid product and they have tons and tons of colors.

I’ve had a very productive day so far: Crossfit, tanning and Manicure. This day off brought to you by caffeine, lots of caffeine 😁😁😁😁

See you next time for Wellness Wednesday!! Have a great night peeps!! πŸ’œπŸ˜πŸΎπŸ’…πŸΌ

Wellness WednesdayΒ 

Good afternoon friends!!

Manicure Monday was a success so I’m going for a 2 post a week routine. πŸ˜πŸ‘πŸΌ My gel polish is still perfect!

I’ve been kicking butt with Weight Watchers! I’m down 23 pounds and I’m really enjoying it! I had a great week last week until Tommy’s birthday weekend. But I’m not mad I just tracked it all and I’ve moved on from it. I lost 1.8 last week and I’m still looking okay for this week. Lots of clean eating necessary to stay on track. I want to lose a few more pounds before the Boston trip and I’m pretty sure I can do it!!


On another wellness note my Bipolar Disorder has been acting up a ton. I’m super exhausted and crabby….just not me. I’m quiet, and not in a peaceful way. I generally have issues in the spring so I’m not too surprised but it still doesn’t make going through it any easier. I hurt and I feel useless. I’m in a funk and I do not like it. I struggle with my eating and feel like self sabotaging everything I’ve worked so hard for. Good thing I have My Love by my side!! He stops me, well makes me see what I’m doing. 😍😍 It’s tricky having a miserable a$$hole living in my head. I am trying to practice my self care but I’m unable to read when I feel like this. I just am not me. I’m going through the motions but I’m not IN it. I slept in today hoping to brush it off….we shall see.

Thanks for reading friend! I hope you loved Wellness Wednesday! Time to learn! Have a great rest of your week!! See you on Manicure Monday!! πŸ˜πŸ’…πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ’œ

Gotta love me some FRIπŸ’œYAY πŸ˜Š

A busy day of the week this week.😊


I’m pretty stoked today since after I work today and tomorrow I have 3 days off in a row!!!!! 😁😁😁😁 I’m gonna try so very hard to do nothing at all. πŸ˜† I’m physically burned out. My Bipolar Disorder, which is a full body disorder, tells me that I’m pooped!!! I’m looking like a cute tanned zombie!! 😜😜😜😜😜


Dr Michelle says I need rest and a lot of self care with it. So I’m gonna do some Kindle reading, some yoga, some hood walking with my lil family and daydream of spring. 🌞🌻🌱🌸🌼🌷 

We now have our tickets to Boston for May 4-9 and me and WW are in full effect!! Had a great couple weeks and I’m looking forward to 5 more till Boston!! Track track track it all!! Water till you burst!! 

This is the 30 minute chicken noodle soup I made while My Love was traveling. So good!! 🍲🍜


My Love goes on the road again next week. Looks like I’ll have to find another batch cook recipe so I won’t have to cook for 1. Hello Pinterest!!

Until we meet again have a great weekend!! See all you peeps next week!! 

Stupid cold ☹️

So I’m so very happy that it’s Tuesday. I’m sick and I have ABSOLUTELY NOTHING that I have to do today. And I intend to do just that. I’m pooped. I’ve been working a lot of days but shorter shifts. It’s a lot more time getting ready and a lot more driving time. I’m trying to be nice and accommodating but I’m tired…and now sick. It’s gonna be a long month!! 

I’m looking into my garden already!! I have spring fever like no other!! β˜€οΈβ˜€οΈβ˜€οΈβ˜€οΈI’m reading a book for beginners and their first year of gardening. Also I have a set of PURPLE gardening tools, ergonomically correct of course! 😜 I know what I want to plant and where, oh I’m just so excited!! I think a garden will do me good! My Love is just letting me run with it for  now. πŸŒ»πŸŒ·πŸƒπŸŒ±πŸ₯’πŸ†πŸŒΆπŸ…


I am getting back on track I hope with blogging. πŸ’œπŸ–‹πŸ““ Consistency is a struggle of mine. I’ll just have to work at it!! I try to do too much then I crap out and get mad at myself. Silly isn’t it?! Anyhow I’m 2 weeks in a row! It’s a streak!! 

A little couponing, some reading, resting and some snuggle time with My Love and my pup. A day off well spent.
