So many exciting things going on!!!

I’m so sorry I have been an absent blogger!  I have no excuse…BUT I’m back!  

We kind of took a week off…for a trip to Michigan for My Love’s niece’s 7th birthday!!  She is, as usual, adorable, super smart, and creative!!  We had a fantastic time with My Love’s family…we were all there 🙂 It doesn’t get to happen often so he soaks up every minute! While we were in Michigan My Love and I went to the Red Sox vs. Tigers game with his brother and his girlfriend.  We had so much fun, although my Red Sox didn’t win 😦  Sidenote:  I’ve NEVER seen so many mosquitos in my life!!!

I have branched out into a business with a solid background!  All non-toxic super effective products!  I’m really excited!!  I’m seeing reorders already!!  Whoop whoop!! I’m feeling better without the chemicals in the house.  I honestly had no idea of how toxic most products are.  The products honestly work better than the toxic ones!  Who knew I’d turn into a tree hugger? 😉  ha ha

We are eating clean and logging in My Fitness Pal.  Are you on there?  Add me: chrissipenney  We slipped a bit in Michigan…it’s an easy thing to forget when you take a step out of your home schedule and are on the go go go.  My Love is headed away on business this week.  I will miss him but business is booming!!!  It’s so great to be working for your own benefit; not someone else’s benefit.

I’m trying to figure out how to get social media buttons on my blog…I’m a little bit, how shall I say it, technologically challenged 😉  I’ll figure it out…unless you want to help me?

I’m coming out from chicken self..I’ll be promoting my blog from now on!!!  I’m hoping for accountability from my faithful readers!!!  I’m trying to learn consistency…It’s like the book The Slight Edge.  If it’s easy to do, it’s easy not to do…I MUST read this again!!  Do you know it?

Are you on a journey of some sort?  I’d love to follow you!  My plan is to share my journey as a healthy living lady trying to find my healthy, happy weight,  I have some health challenges so my journey is a bit strained.  I workout when I feel good and I rest when I’m not.  I shouldn’t push it too far, my doctors remind me that what goes up must come down and that every action has a reaction. (A little pushing it doesn’t hurt though)

Still crushing it!!

We are Winning the Day big time!!!

We’re eating clean, we’re working out, we’re setting goals for our week, we’re logging our food, drinking water, sleeping…BOOM!!!

I’ve been a bit off for the past week and a half, but who doesn’t have their off days?  Mine just lasted a little longer 🙂  I’ve also had a headache this week.  BUT I did rally and hit the gym today.  Like they say in the fitness world: Never miss more than 3 days in a row.  I have to workout every day until the end of the week to hit my 4 workouts this week, but it’s totally do-able.  

We’ve been making some absolutely delicious food! We had chicken and broccoli stir fry last night, and turkey and quinoa stuffed peppers the night before…yummm!!  I’ll have to learn how to add them and give credit for them 🙂 We’re doing 1-2 shakes, smoothies or Advocare Meal Replacement (I’m LOVING the vanilla right now!!!) and then a super clean dinner.  

So, today is my anniversary with My Love!!!  4 years of insane happiness!!!  I took a leap of faith to move to Colorado from Boston to take a chance on love with My Love…and I’ve literally never been happier!! ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤  He makes me smile when I’m full of tears.  He’s my backbone when mine is away.  He’s my better half, my life, my world, my why.  He’s my accountability partner in our adventure to get fit.  I’ve set my goal to FIT@40 and I know I’ve got this!!!  We’re a great influence on each other now that we’re serious in taking this journey all the way!!  I can’t wait to see our results at the end of the Advocare 24 Day Challenge!!  Today is day 17!  It’s coming up, I’d better get to work!!!

We’re indulging in sushi galore tonight.  We’ll make any healthy swaps we can: limiting or omitting crunchy rolls, using brown rice, getting sashimi…we’ll experiment and see what we can do.  There’s no wrong answer with sushi!  I just love love love sushi!!!

I had a meeting with a great gal who is a Life Coach.  We were chatting and she is SO HELPFUL!!!!  I spilled my guts and told her information that she needed to make an assessment for me.  The outcome was: I need to do what makes me happy.  If I’m doing something that I’m not happy with, I won’t be successful.  I was kind of in a “DUR!!!” moment.  It seems so simple, why was I having trouble?  Dur Chrissi!

So all in all I’m a happy, happy gal!  Madly in love, living the good life!  I’m am so blessed!  Thank you Universe!!!
