OOPS!:) Day #23 - Day #27

LOL I think summertime is FINALLY here! Which means Kristi has LESS time for internet, LESS time for Facebook, and LESS time for Blogger:) So I have been walking needless to say but this past week has been a little off due to the damn rain in Michigan! I have accomplished walking EVERY day I work! Yay me! I missed my WW meeting tonight so I will be back with the weigh results next week!:)

Published with Blogger-droid v1.6.8

Today was a shitty....Uh I mean not so nice day.....I got one 30 minute walk in at work and it has rained ever second since then! I feel SOOOO lazy! I have acquired that "exercize high" that every athlete talks about.....The results of walking are endless for me! So I am laying low and takin it easy....headed to the Tattoo parlour for Chad to take his tattoo virginity!:)

Day 20!

Published with Blogger-droid v1.6.8

Look at that look of determination! LOL I took this on my 4 mile walk around the country roads in Concord....I REALLY wanted to skip this walk but forced myself because tuesday is weigh in day!:) I stay the exact same as last week at weigh in....I guess its better than a gain but I dont understand it because I have not cheated at all.....even when nice chocolaty chewy brownies have stared me down! LOL But as I am posting this the next day I weighed in at 161.....2 pounds LESS than yesterday! Ugh! 3 more pounds for my ultimate personal goal.....I hope it doesnt take me all summer to get there! I walked 7 miles again tuesday:)

  • And only 13# from high school graduation weight of 150# when I thought I was SOOOO fat I couldnt possibly go on......LOL
  • AND I am 24.1 on the BMI scale......that is nice and snuggly in the middle of the "Healthy Weight" range:)
I love where I have come from and Love where I am headed!:)

Day 12:

Back to work for me means back to the ole routine:) Walked on break for a total of 50 minutes total at work, then walked by myself around Concord ( Believe me if I wasnt weighing in at WW tonight I would have totally skipped!) for an hour:) I am headed off to the Monday night WW meeting at Western High School and hopefully meeting lifetime! Wish me luck!

Jumped Back on!

I feel like I have fallen off the weight loss wagon a little bit the last couple weeks......
  • I havent been tracking every single bite, lick, or taste like I should....
  • I find myself gorging on unhealthy options when eating out on the weekends......
  • My life was NOT controlled by my nightly walks like it should be.....
So I am back on the wagon, walking like a fool.....AND I am GOING to get this last 3# off and reach lifetime and NOT have to pay $40 a month to WW anymore and be FREE!:)

Day #5

Walkin on break at work.....50 minutes total here.....then plans to walk with Sarah and the dogs ay 330 around Concord....Im back! Spring has really sprung......notice the blooming pear tree???

Day #4

Published with Blogger-droid v1.6.8

Today I made sure that I woke right up and went for at least an hour walk! Chad and I went out, dogs in tow, and walked around the country block at our house.......It took us 65 minutes and then we landscaped!:) See the above picture.....we are making progress on cleaning stuff up around here:) We powerwashed the house and garage, burned a pile of wood rubbish that had taken ownership of the back cement pad, and rototilled the garden that I cannot WAIT to plant!:) Tomorrow starts a new week and my goal is to walk at least twice at work everyday and to walk everynight when I get outta work:) Hopefully my walking partner Sarah's blisters have healed!

Day #3

Well saturday pretty much sucked for exercise.....We went to the Hillsdale auction and walked around alot there and we went shopping around with Chads parents so I guess that counts as a day of exercise but its not typically what I would like to count....Onward!

Wanted this once since last year....

When I graduated with my RN.....I wanted something that would show people the hard work I endured and once again its symbolic of me....I wont lie though....This one HURT LIKE A BITCH! My fingers were numb for 2 hours prior and I could feel the pain all the way into my neck, he was hitting nerves the entire time! I am already thinking about what I can get next!:)

Horse shoes tattoo:)

FINALLY had enough balls to get this done! I have been wanting it done for a while but I was listening to everyone on the outside telling me the pain that I would endure and me with a pretty high pain threshold....Rocked that shit! LOL  Once again another symbolic of Kristi Tattoo:)

Gettin some New Ink:)

I am getting some new ink on wednesday with one of the ladies at work.....She has been talking about wanting to go get her FIRST tattoo at the age of 60 and wanted someone to go with her........Me getting the springtime itch I always do, volunteered! LOL I have decided that I am getting the medical Symbol (top pic) on the inside outer edge of the underside of my right wrist.....Bout the size of a nickel to symbolize me as a nurse and I am trying to decide between the 2 horseshoe pictures for the top of my right foot, any suggestions as to which one you personally like better will be greatly appreciated:)
