It would appear that I took the summer off…..

But I’m back!! Stay tuned! A couple of my manis from the past couple weeks πŸ’…πŸΌ I’m still loving the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel polishes. 

I miss the accountability that writing gives me. So I’m going to fine tune my blog whilst learning more of the tech side. Make it all pretty and stuff. πŸ˜πŸ’œ

 Happy Sunday!!

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

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!! 

I’m flaking all over the place.Β 

So I’m feeling a ton better overall now that we’ve braved the raging rapids of my medication overhaul. Now it’s a 3 day headache that I’m recovering from. I was feeling like I couldn’t catch a break…..BUT the sun is shining, I have the day off and I feel great!! I intend to make the most of my day!!

I’ve been missing writing but I just haven’t been able to get my shit together enough to do it. In other news I’m still hot on the job hunt. 

My Love has been traveling a lot this past month although I’ve had him home a week straight now. 😍 

I’ve been kicking butt with WW!! β˜ΊοΈπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ˜Ž Also I’m still slowly working on Couch to 5K πŸƒπŸ½β€β™€οΈπŸ˜…

Tonight I’m trying out a support group for Huntington’s Disease. πŸ’œ Should be interesting. I feel like maybe I should’ve done that years ago. I’m a self proclaimed CHICKEN!! πŸ£πŸ€πŸ”πŸ₯ Anyway I’m going to check it out 😳

I’m reading a Tony Robbins book: How to Awaken the Giant Within. I’m loving it!! How did I not read him before? Personal development is something I wish I found sooner than age 32. I could’ve been much further on my journey. ☺️ πŸ€“

Sooooo all is well in this neck of the woods πŸ’œ Also fun fact: my nieces love FaceTime! And I do too! I’m sure my sister gets driven crazy about it but that’s okay πŸ˜‰

See you soon peeps!!

New year, same greatness!!

Tis a snowy Monday here in Rockford Michigan. My little fur face is staring out the window on her perch. Hello!!

I have a great new job at Massage Envy as front desk sales. So far it’s going well πŸ˜ƒ I’m playing well with others so it’s all good! πŸ˜‰

I’m stumbling a bit with WW. I was doing great for a few days then the weekend hit and I didn’t do so great. I make great choices at home, but going out I fail!! It’s a new week and a new chance to do well. I’m not gonna beat myself up there’s nothing I can do about it now. That’s another thing I’m working on, not being so damn hard on myself. My Love tells me that all the time. 

My Love and my fur face got me a Fitbit for Christmas and I’m mildly obsessed with it. I guess that’s the point. I have goals that work for me. Now that I’m hitting them it’s time to up the numbers, challenge me. πŸ˜ƒ I’m nowhere near the 10,000 steps but I’m in a race with myself not everyone else. 

My Love and I are doing very well. We are still getting used to our new surroundings. We are trying new restaurants and breweries. 

Hopefully this week will kick ass too! Have a great week peeps!!!

Here’s some random pics to see what we’re up to. πŸ’œ

Well…when your life hands you lemons…isn’t that what they say?

This month has been less than stellar but I’m not going to let it ruin my year. I’m an optimistic person and I know that all of this nonsense is a lesson, a chance to grow and be a better me. I’ll take it!!
The nonsense has been illness and the death of my Dad. Also I’m trying to keep my goals in mind, although truth be told, at this time I couldn’t care LESS about my years’ goals. I still want to get to my goal weight, build a banging body and be a Senior Rep in WV. My bummed out self is sad as hell that my Dad is gone.
We did see him 3 out of the 5 days we visited in November and for that I will be eternally grateful. However, Dad and I haven’t always seen eye to eye. I am my mother’s mini. I’m exactly like her and with Dad that was a problem. I’m always on Team Mom and haven’t always been the nicest person about it. I was judgemental, opinionated and sometimes just plain old mean. I had a better outlook on our relationship once I found out that my Dad had Huntington’s Disease. I instantly felt like a piece of trash for treating him like an a$$hole when he was sick. What a prize I am. Once we knew he was sick I was a much better daughter and support source. We built a relationship that was better than it ever was, although he was deteriorating physically and functionally. I would almost always cry leaving his house, knowing he wasn’t the same old Dad anymore. He was forgetful, and frustrated and lacked balance. He was fidgety and couldn’t sit still. It was frustrating for him and sad for me and my Sister. We loved him unconditionally and I’m sure of that.
None of us were expecting my Dad to pass away, he was only 58. He was in the hospital since October with congestive heart failure. Complications from the HD in addition to the 10% function of his heart made it impossible for him to get better.

Now I’m home in Denver and trying to get back to whatever the hell my new “normal” will be. Missing Dad will forever will be part of my life now, forever. My bummed out self is present but absent…thinking of seven thousand other things than the tasks at hand. I’m hoping to stay on top of things so that I don’t have to worry about my mental health’s health. My sleep has been off, my schedule has been off…I’m hoping to get some motivation soon, this sucks!

It was suggested by My Love that I should take it easy for a few days to try to get back on track. Today I think I’ll just veg out and tomorrow I’ll try to hit the gym…I think I may just have to set it as a reminder in my phone…otherwise I’ll just keep putting it off. After all, I do have big plans for this year. I think I’ll just try to make Dad proud, well and me proud too πŸ™‚ Also I’m hoping to keep eating clean and make some meal plans and prep for a few days. Thinking about what’s for dinner everyday isn’t on my list of things to do. The girls and I have plans to get together every couple weeks or month…so we don’t all get overwhelmed by life. It does have a tendency to get away from us…life that is! So I guess all that’s left to do is just take it easy, and get ready to get back at it tomorrow.

Oh and by the way: My Love is the greatest of the great!! He is my rock and every day I’m more and more thankful and more and more in love with him. Every day I wake up next to him, and every day I smile…THANK YOU MY LOVE!!!!
