Holy crap I’m eating big freakin frogs!! πŸΈ

So I’ve come to the conclusion that I’ve totally been Winning The Day lately. I haven’t been working much at all at ME so I’ve been free to do all kinds of stuff. 

I feel like I’ve been allowing myself to be a weenie. My meds have changed for the better so I haven’t had the shake anymore BUT my anxiety has come up more. That’s not cool. My therapist has been showing me some more coping tricks and I’ve been doing well with it. Sooooo I will NOT allow myself to be a weenie any longer! There’s a book called Eat That Frog 🐸 and it’s based on the premise of overcoming procrastinaton by tackling your biggest task first. Eat that big ugly frog first and the rest of your day is a cake walk. So let’s just say I’ve been eating some serious frogs!!! 🐸 🐸🐸🐸🐸🐸

I want a new job and since I don’t shake I can cut hair…..so scared haven’t cut any hair since school. Holy crap!!!!! πŸ’© So I ate a big frog and applied at Great Clips. I had 3 interviews in a hour!!! 😲😲😲😲 Chrissi’s freaking the f out!!!! Eatin them frogs!!! Sooooo I’ve run into trouble because I need models to do the technical interviews. I don’t know any people here to cut their hair. Fast forward a week I have an ad on Craigslist and last night got my 2 people for the Great Clips 6 mins away. ENTER ANXIETY!!! Breathe from the belly…

I’m watching YouTube tutorials, I’m prepping my tools, wardrobe choices to make then holy shit kid, I got this!!! I have absolute nervous excitedness but I sure do have a smile on my face! πŸ˜βœ‚οΈπŸ’‡πŸ»πŸ’‡πŸ½β€β™‚οΈπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ™πŸ»

So I’m reading Eat That Frog and I’m eating frogs in my real life. Even if I don’t get this job I’m so damn proud of myself. Thank you to my peeps for having my back! My Love has been holding my hand the whole time 😍😍😍😍😍 I love him!!!

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!!

Friday Funday and Game Day Saturday….

So I’ve come to the conclusion that it, in fact, is NOT summer that I love…..it’s fall ☺️☺️☺️☺️ That being said I’m SO DAMN HAPPY!!!!!  I absolutely HATE HUMIDITY!!!!!! I LOVED Colorado for all 6 years I was there because there was none of that nonsense there!! Back to the positive: it’s just about gone! Now it’s my chance to enjoy Michigan! Come on Bailey we’re walkin!!!  I want to just keep the ball rolling. I’m down 10 pounds and would like to do some of this Couch to 5K outside in real life. πŸ˜‰ I have big goals for September!! I think I’m the only dork that makes them….

I’m still on the job hunt but it’s not as bad there as it was. I enjoyed my monthly free massage the other day. πŸ˜‰ That being said I genuinely feel like a mother hen with my direct coworkers. Yikes!! πŸ™„

I’m thinking I wanna start a weekly WW Wednesday with a weekly recipe that we tried and loved….what do you think? πŸ˜„

So I’m sitting on our deck with My Love, enjoying our Saturday off with Miss Bailey. Some good food, good football…GO BLUE!! Great music, no sweaty mess!!! YESSSS!!

The sun is going down a bit earlier but I’m not mad yet, yet…..

I’m doing a Daily Journal Challenge this month and it’s making me look within to be a better me. ☺️ Everyone needs to be aware of themselves. People are present but very absent. It’s sad but it’s just how it is now. Damn phones!!!  That being said… I’m putting my phone down to be with My Love!!! 😍😍😍😍

Goodnight y’all!!! πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œp

I wanna be here for you πŸ’œ

So I’ve been thinking about how to put what’s in my head here and do myself and others justice. I’m thinking about how I started this blog to get shit out of my head. I am a VERY unique person with a lot of things going for me. That being said I struggle a lot with a laundry list of things it seems sometimes BUT those things help me connect with my peeps. 

Do you have anxiety? I’m here for you.

Do you have Bipolar Disorder? I’m here for you. 

Do you have depression? I’m here for you.

Do you have migraines? I’m here for you. 

Are you overweight? I’m here for you. 

Are you gene positive for Huntington’s Disease? I’m here for you. 

Are you on disability? I’m here for you. 

Do you see what I’m saying? I’m here for you. πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ

So whether 1 person identifies with this or 1 million…..I’m here for you. Sometimes you just feel like you’re alone and you’re not. I’m here for you. 

I try to do the right thing all the time but you just can’t. I’m doing Weight Watchers to get me a bit lighter. πŸ˜‰ I log all my food I get excercise in. Then you continue and be patient. I am NOT good at that part. I read an amazing book The Slight Edge by Jeff Olson. The cliff notes version is everyone operates on a baseline. The choices you make in your day either help you or hurt you. You order the salad your lines goes up positively. You order the quarter pounder with cheese your line goes into the negative. Over time your pluses take you sky high and your negatives take you into the ground. Bottom line is keep doing the positive stuff and you’ll get to your goals quicker than if you stray. I try to live by this. But we all stray, for we are human. But I’m here for you. We can’t do it all but we sure try β˜ΊοΈπŸ’œ

I love you all and I’m not kidding, I’m here for you. I’ll stay up with you, any time πŸ’œ

I’m back

Good afternoon peeps!!

So I’ve been away for a few days, it seems I’ve been fighting a round with life. I had that awful skin thing and now I’ve had a migraine for 2 weeks. I think I may have pissed someone off. 😁 I’ve been back and forth with my Primary Care docs a bunch. I’ve gotten a shot that tripled my pain. I’ve been to Urgent Care and had an IV of some migraine solution that helped at the time. Once that Bad Larry wore off I was back worse. I’ve been in to a rushed Neurologist consult. I’m on the fast track to get back with my Botox treatment that I KNOW works.

I’m feeling human again today and ready to face the world (with sunglasses, I still am super light sensitive). I’m out having lunch with My Love but still taking it easy. Between my regular meds and the extras now I’m a bit off for sure. My vision is fuzzy. It’ll all work out just fine, BUT I did not succeed at doing 31 in 31. πŸ‘ŽπŸΌ

We are home from lunch and a little shopping. I feel like I ran or something. Pooped for sure!

Dinner at My Loves cousins. Should be pretty low key I hope. ☺️

Have a great night my peeps! ☺️

How is it 9:30 already?!

Happy Monday night! Looks like we made it through another Monday! 😊😊😊😊😊

I’m at a total loss at where my day went. I did accomplish a lot though. Fingers and toes done and a good long massage to make my damn headache go away. I now have my neck back, I’m a little taller and my heads better. ☺️

I’m much better heading into this week as opposed to the past few weeks, AMEN!! ☺️ Coming up tomorrow: day 1 of my free gym pass. Pilates 😧 yikes!!! Also I’ll have to go to that lovely place of employment, oh joy. πŸ˜‰ 

The bipolar roller coaster seems to be on an upslope!!  I got to FaceTime with the gorgeous lil ladies that call me Aunnie β˜ΊοΈπŸ’œβ˜ΊοΈπŸ’œ I just love them. Yes I was under the table with Brenna. ☺️

Okay peeps, go to bed, I’ll be back tomorrow. Goodnight!!!

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 😧


Holy cow I almost missed today!!

It’s officially my weekend!!!

Today was a rough one!  Needless to say it didn’t go as planned. 😳

I don’t wanna complain so I won’t but holy hell!! πŸ‘Ώ

On the up side I have the next 2 days off that I shall utilize to job hunt and get better. The stupid pills my Dr gave me make me super nauseous, and they don’t even work! WTF?!?! I was so sick at work. My short shift felt like a month.

Im home now with pup next to me and suddenly all is well! My Love is out with his brother for a bit so I’m all stretched out. 😊😊

WW weigh in tomorrow and I think I may have over eaten some hummus right now, ha ha ha silly things right?! I’m keeping my fingers crossed!!! 😊

Another day, another post….

Good afternoon peeps!!

I’m having a fantastic day off. πŸ‘Ώ I’m heading out shortly to pickup my prescription to try and break my almost week long headache. Along with that I have an almost week long Bipolar episode. Let’s just say I’m not very good company. That being said My Love and my pup are amazing! 

That’s what is shitty about invisible illnesses. Slap a smile on my face and most people will never know anything is wrong. Not that I’d want to put a sign on or anything but you catch my drift. People have to see things wrong physically to believe one to be ill.  Pretty crappy. 

Well anyway I did say I have today off so even though I feel like crap I’m still at my lovely home with My Love and my pup. πŸ’œπŸ˜ŠπŸ’•

See you tomorrow!! 

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??
