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!!

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»

My word of the year: Humble πŸ˜

Good evening peeps!! 

Happy Monday!

So My Love is traveling on business so it’s just me and my lil lady Bailey. Admittedly it’s pretty lame around here without him. ☹️ Also I shall admit that Thursday at 11PM can NOT get here fast enough!! 😊 

It’s early 2017 and I’m kicking so much butt!! I’m learning a lot of stuff simultaneously so that is how I’ve come to pick my word of the year: Humble. Between work and Crossfit, I’m overcoming being crappy at stuff….I’m taking critiques and learning from them. Am I getting mad? Hell no I’m thankful for the time and the looking out!! I’m getting better by the day. My confidence is mounting, I’m eating frogs on the regular!! 🐸 🐸 🐸

I’m being a coupon queen again now!! It feels so good to save money!!! πŸ’° We eat really clean and it’s always been said that you can’t eat clean on a smaller budget. I’ve been saving a bunch already this year!! My goal was to save $100 this month, and I’m already at about $200 saved and we are only half way through the month!!


Good thing I’m saving all kinds of money, I just picked up 2 of my prescriptions for a 30 day supply and it was $173.00! GODDAMN!!! 😑🀒😡 My “Miracle Medication” is $155.00 this month. It goes up to $170 sometimes. My insurance saves me like $900 on it too. What a ripoff!! Good thing I’m rich!! 😁 It’s pretty expensive to get me “normal-ish” πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Botox, medications…..shiiiiiiitt!! Normal…..NO THANKS!! πŸ˜†


Gotta go, that’s my dinner!! 

Have a great week peeps!! Love, Chrissi and Bailey 🐢🐾❀️

HAPPY NEW YEAR PEEPS!!! πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜

So it is Tuesday January 3rd 2017. Have you made resolutions? I have but I’m thinking I need to adjust them. Obviously I want to make more money. πŸ’° I want to volunteer more. I want to pay down debt. I want to save money. πŸ€‘ Blah blah blah I’m boring myself. πŸ˜‚ 

I want to hit my goal weight this year. I want to get more sporty. I want to keep kicking butt with WW. I actually have signed myself up for Crossfit and have my 1st Foundations meeting tonight. πŸ’ͺ🏼Holy crap! Not being a weenie is dangerous. 😳 Like I’ve said: If a 400 lb man and an 80 year old lady can do it, why not me?

I want to keep being the best me I can. I’ll continue to read, to practice self care. I’m going to consciously try to be kinder to myself. I’m quite mean to myself. I will fix it!! 😁  I plan on building my blog so I’ll be here to be accountable to all of you! 

Also I have a new job that I love and I’m learning more everyday!!πŸ’‡πŸ»πŸ’‡πŸ½β€β™‚οΈ The people watching isn’t bad either!! πŸ˜†

More great news!  I’m super excited about the advances in HD research!!!  Things are looking up fast! First human trials have begun!!! Team Penney will keep on fundraising!! Science is awesome! πŸ™πŸ»πŸ™πŸ»πŸ™πŸ» I know I’ll keep praying! 😁

Happy new year!! 

Let’s rock those resolutions!!

It’s a gorgeous evening…..

I worked all day and now I get to enjoy the night. Some ambience with my guy and my pup. Tiki torches lit and some country music playing….oh and a cervesa.

I’m feeling a little better today THANK GOD!!!!  Thanks to My Love for getting some of the pain out of my neck and being patient while I’m not myself!!!

I was starving leaving work. Instead of hitting a drive thru I grabbed a roaster chicken from the grocery store and had some leftover cleaner potato salad. Happy kid here What’s up for the week people? I’m job hunting and hitting the gym hopefully if I get the week pass. Also I’d like to get my pup moving some more. I love how after a walk she plops out on the dining room floor all legs everywhere. πŸΆπŸΎπŸ• Silly girl!

See you tomorrow!!  

I don’t know how to make this blue highlighter go away 😧


Finally!!!!!

Goodness it’s been forever since my last post!!  

I’m so busy all of a sudden!  I’m working, working on me, working on getting moving, being a Dog Mom being Super Girlfriend. Just got back from Boston being Super Aunnie, Super Granddaughter and Super daughter…..I’m pooped!!

My job is going well. I work with great people and who doesn’t love free massages ☺️

I have been doing really well with Weight Watchers πŸ˜ƒ I’m tracking everything. I was not at meetings for a couple weeks due to traveling but I still had a loss Friday. I did get a couple walks in last week which is a big plus!  Gotta keep moving!!

My Sweet little Grammy passed away while I was in Boston. 😒 She was sick for so long with Huntington’s Disease it really is a blessing. Still it doesn’t make the missing her any less. I’m just so glad that I got to say goodbye. πŸ’—

I ended up being in Boston a full week which absolutely was NOT planned. My Love left for 9 days the same day I returned so I had to miss him for a million days….well it felt like it. πŸ˜‰ At the end of the month we will be  our 6th anniversary. 😍

We finally got a new grill yesterday and we are quite excited about it! We had delicious NY Strips last night. Yummmm!! We grill everything, this is gonna be great!

My Bailey was SO excited to see me when I picked her up!!  She knocked me backwards and wouldn’t leave my side 🐢🐾🐾🐾

I’m hooked on bagged chopped salads right now. Yummmmm!

Here are some randoms from my week ☺️

   
    
   

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
