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 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

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

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

Manicure Monday take 1

Happy new week!

It’s a beautiful day in my neighborhood today!  I think I’m gonna take a nice walk around with my fur baby. Get some steps, some vitamin D and some fresh air! 


I’m doing a little something different today and I’ll see how it goes. I’m calling it Manicure Monday. I’ll show and tell my mani every Monday. I ripped my acrylic nails off the wrong way so my nails are PRETTY short. This weeks polish is a Sally Hansen Miracle Gel polish called Sugar Fix. It’s a 2 step polish that lasts like gel without needing to be light cured. Pretty genius if you ask me. So much less time. It’s at every store imaginable. There’s tons of colors to choose from. I’ve worn this color before and I LOVE it! It’s a great bright color. 


I hit 23 pounds down!! Weight Watchers is going great! Well it was till this past weekend, My Love’s Birthday Weekend! 😳 We celebrated for sure!! Back on track today! Track track track!!! 

It’s 3 1/2 weeks till Boston! It’s going to be a great time!! First Communion, 5 de Mayo, family cookout….good times!!

Have a great week peeps! See you Wednesday for Wellness Wednesday!!
