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

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!!

3 days, 3 blogs

So I’m totally thankful for my freedom today as I sit with My Love and my pup Bailey on the deck on this gorgeous evening in western MI.

We are about to hook up a delicious, clean eating meal. I’m starving but I know it’ll be worth the wait. My Love is quite the cook!!

I worked all day today and I’m not gonna lie, it sucked!!! I just feel like I literally waste my time going there. The job hunt is in full effect!!

Are you having a great holiday weekend??

So, I’m working on some stuff…

I shall begin by saying that consistency is not one of my strong suits. Now that that’s out of the way….I’m working on some stuff. Β I’m trying to being a great Dog Mom, which I’m doing well at. I’m trying to be a good girlfriend, which I’m doing well at. I’m trying to be a good person, which I’m doing well at. I’m trying to be a good bestie, which I’m doing well at. Now, here is where the trouble comes in: I’m trying to be good to me…I’m failing MISERABLY!

I can do a lot of things well but wherever and whenever it comes to me I stumble and fail over and over again. Why is that? Wish I knew…..but I’m working on it. I read badass go get it girl books, I have My Love feeding me love every day, my therapist questions me on it, yet I’m beating myself up any chance I get. I’m not acknowledging my value. So how do I fix it? I’m not too sure. Just do better I think…take my meds, sleep well…I do that. Β Love myself. I kinda do. I wish I could see me like My Love does!! Β He LOVES me! Eat right and exercise…I’ll work on it. What else?! Ummmm Β I’m trying to start to get out of my comfort zone a bit. My paperwork is all filled out for my Cosmetology and Esthetics licenses in Michigan. πŸ˜ƒ I want back in the industry and I want to wax. πŸ˜ƒ I know I’m a weirdo!! Β I love that shit!! Anyhow I’m going to WW tomorrow and the dentist and My Love comes home from Cali late night!!! Β Walk tomorrow!! Β Cure HD!! Β I’m gonna be a mushy mess, my Dad and my sweet little Grammy gone from it. It’s bullshit honestly. I’m not gonna pull the oh so popular “It’s not fair!” crap. Where does it get you?! Β It’s annoying to the listeners. I’m going the crusader route! The closest HD branch is an hour away but I’ll get in there somehow ☺️ Let’s get this shit cured!!

Happy Thursday!!
