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 Vacay Mode πŸŒ·β˜€οΈπŸŒΈπŸŒž

Hello my Lovelies!

It’s almost vacation time!! πŸ’œπŸ˜Tomorrow we’re leaving The Mitten to head to Boston!! I can’t wait to see everyone! Our last excursion to MA was for Momma’s 60th last year. The beginning of June to be precise.

 I have a mental checklist spinning away in my mind. I have to work today so it’ll all have to wait until later on. How many days, how much clothes, of what kind of clothes, need comfy stuff and pretty stuff. Meds, can’t forget the meds….I’ve done that one before!! 😳😳😳😳 Makeup, money, shoes, jewelry…..goodness gracious!

At WW this week I had a HUGE gain and I can’t be certain why. It’s all part of the journey I know but it’s frustrating. Especially since I’m gonna be partaking in some rich deliciousness over the next 5 days. I’m gonna try to eat clean as much as possible but if I want something in particular just not everything in general. Gotta make smart choices!! I’m bringing brand new to me pants for the 1st Communion day. I never fit in them before!! πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ

Tan πŸ‘πŸΌ

Nails πŸ‘πŸΌ

Hair πŸ‘πŸΌ

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

Wellness Wednesday, well Thursday πŸ˜

So it WAS Wednesday and I want to talk about spring!! The days are longer, the temperatures are creeping up….the sun feels warmer and more lovely….I’m a sucker for spring fever!!! Baseball starts, all good stuff!! It leads me to want to be out. Any chance I get I want to have the sun on me. It also makes us want to start a garden, well it does for me. I’m still reading my garden book. 😁 It’s helping me to not trip over myself with the when where and how. Lord knows I make myself dizzy once I get something in my head. I still need to get me some purple garden gloves!! 😁😁😁 Anyhow I want to be out, we are out on the deck again with the tiki torches. We’re grilling….now we’ll need to prep more. It’s way too easy to just grab stuff that goes together: pasta salad, brats, hot dogs and potato salad is my ultimate weakness!! Lightened up stuff is the way to go for us. I’m down 23 pounds with Weight Watchers and I’m not done! I need to be super focused!! No distractions, well not until Boston! I am looking forward to the visit and the food! There’s nothing like Boston’s pizza, seafood and Italian food!! I’m gonna have to fit in some exercise for it all!!πŸ˜πŸ˜‚ 2 weeks from today!! 

Oh P.S. I’m still super sore from Monday’s Crossfit debacle πŸ‹πŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ˜²

Have a great week peeps!! πŸ‹πŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸŒ±β­οΈπŸ˜πŸ’œ

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
