What A Day

Although yesterday was stressful and packed with chaos! Yesterday was a dream day! I had a great time with an old friend. I had to walk twice around this huge ass building... (Dude must have been like 10blocks total! I did it like 4 times cause I was lost!).. I made qualification for my next level up in my business! I got sleep last night! I am at 147.5, But I feel great about that number! I want to be down a lil bit more but I will get there! I scheduled my month for May so far, its going great! I also know that my weighloss challenge is starting soon and I am sooo damn excited to get started!!!! I also had a fizzie(energy drink) this morning and have loads of energy cause I did get sleep so I am sooo on a roll!!!!!

I do have to say that I have been managing life much better. I take some days to myself and other days to work and strive for bigger and better. It has helped me not get too overwhelmed which you all know is a constant with me. I have been on here more often writing and it also has helped me stay focused. I also think just in general my live has just been nicer too me! I think its the weather! Its beautiful outside and that always helps me get through my day! I am going to go for a nice long walk today! I am going to try and make it two miles! Also sometime this summer I want to buy the bugg... so I can track my daily activity level and see what I am doing when and how to incorporate more activity in my day!

I am so desperate to get back into gear about working out and being fit that it hurts! haha, I have tried to continue since the end of my last challenge but it has been hard. I think the winter is a very hard time for me to do much. But with the coming summer months I do believe that I will be successful! I will be going outside more! and just a lil bit extra workout with my EA active, I can really start to burn more cal! I have cut back on what I am eating and I am fluctuating between 145 and 148. Which isn't too bad, although I want to start seeing results that fluctuate downward!

Ok, I have wasted my whole day...lots of work to do.. got to go!

Rough weekend!

So at some point on Sunday I was up to 150! YIKES! so I have managed to not eat! I am so sick of my weight at this point! well correction I am eating just as little as possible. but weight kind of has been the last thing on my mind these past two days...  I am quite in crisis mode at the moment... I am prob going to be losing my job within the next few weeks... SO, I am doing everything humanly possible to make my Arbonne business work! So, I normally wouldn't do this because I dont like sounding like a sales pitch but here is my website... if you like anything please let me know...   you can buy on line using my ID# 18499856... or you can email me at

so anyway that is me letting you guys know whats going on... I am prob gonna go for a really long walk today to try and clear my head.....

life is just so unexpected, I am happy I started my business a few months ago.. It has been taking off and bumping up to the next level will allow me to stay at home!

anyway that's all for today... been on the phone all yesterday and all today... work work work.... grow grow grow.... believe!

Weigh in

So I know today is a random day for a weigh in but... I am currently 146! YES! GO ME!!!!!
I am officially going down instead of up! before LHAS, my goal is to be at 140, than to go down from there with a final goal of 125! I would be happy with 130, but ultimately I want 125! and more importantly I will get there!

one factor that I will be working on continuously thoughout this challenge will be my posture! due to breastfeeding I feel like a hunchback. I want to sit up straight and hold my head up instead of slouching!!!!! Its so bad I know but... I can focus on my posture and keeping my abs tight all the time like I used to.

This weight loss challenge is no more about getting back to being me after a pregnancy this is about reaching my ultimate goal! Getting active and staying active! Most importantly I am doing this for my ego, I want to be skinny. I never have truly been "skinny" always a size 8 maybe 6, but I want to have an even shape!

In other words I want to lose inches, I want to tone! I want to see more and better results! First thing tomorrow AM I will be jumping on the treadmill!.. weather permitting I might go for a walk instead but I will be up and out and about! by 7!

Since I am going to ultimately be staying home... maybe sooner than later..(depending on hubby), I need to instill a solid routine into my day instead of sleeping all day long...I know I feel great after a work out and should strive to work out enough that it comes as second nature. Yes, I know that I am lazy and never work out but, this is what I need to change. What I will be changing with this challenge..

The other thing that I will be doing on this challenge will be using a shake program to lower the amount of incoming cal along with getting nutrition. I will not be doing shakes instead of meals, my daily shake will be 350-400 cal, to replace lunch. Doing this will essentially eliminate anywhere from 200-300 cal a day. Which I need seeing how I have been at 1800-2000 cal a day lately.

So I will be taking this challenge to heart! Like everything else I do in my life... lets see how far we can go! who wants to join me?

Cystic Fibrosis

Good Morning Ladies!

So yesterday was a fabulous day! Despite all the things I had to do I enjoyed time with my best friend! But that is not what my blog is about today.

Today I am talking about something so much more serious... three months ago I said friends in my life had passed away in some of the most tragic ways, well I am happy to say that because of my best friend we are doing something about it. My best friend  will be starting a Cystic Fibrosis organization to honor our friend. Not only that, but she wants me to be a huge part of this organization! I am happy to announce that I will be treasurer! Now I can not give any details beyond this because nothing is legal yet, and due to family dynamics no information is to be released till all paperwork is signed and legally authorized for us. (Don't you just love family giving everyone a hard time over a great cause? yea right)...

So in-lue to these new developments.... And my newest weight loss challenge! I will be donating 5 dollars for every pound that I lose! I am happy to be donating to a great cause and hope that people will participate in my cause!

Now, not only does this affect me due to losing a loved one but it also personally affects me because I carry the Cystic Fibrosis gene. Subsequently going through testing during my pregnancy. Fortunately my husband does not carry the primary Cystic Fibrosis gene yet might carry a form of the mutation that may result in male infertility. All I know is that my daughter is most likely a carrier which puts her children at risk. And, I have also spoke about Celiac disease on here and want all to know that Cystic Fibrosis is related to Celiac, they are two peas in a pod. Of the same gene and more importantly Celiac is a form of Cystic Fibrosis. Now my god daughter and her little brother both have Celiac disease, and since they are unsure which parent is the carrier, both of their parents are following the same Celiac diet to prevent their own reactions to gluten.

So these are things that hit close to home. Not some exorbitant diagnosis that has nothing to do with me but is something that is a part of me.

Now although my philosophy has always been to not be apart of a non profit organization, due to my capitalistic economic perspective. I feel that this organization will be for the best interest of all participants and not being apart of it would do others and myself a huge dis-service.

What does this mean in regards to my new years resolution, I am becoming apart of something that is bigger than me. Something that I take to heart and care about. But, also something that will remain with me for the rest of my life. Where as I am not focusing on the here and now. I am focusing on the bigger picture of my life. Doing good and living in a way that is productive to my community.

Does it always have to be about my new years resolution... well in part yes! I am changing my life for the better and the few steps that I take to better me and the world around me is all part of what I want to do for the rest of my life. As is my business... speaking of if I am going to be home by the end of the year I will sooo need something to fill my time.

Anyway that is all for today. I hope that all of us can see events in our lives and participate in something bigger than us.

Now all my life I have hated my name and most importantly everyone I knew named Christine I just could not stand... Well I have to say that officially everyone in my life named Christine Rocks My World!!!!
First off to my blogger friends... Christine and Christine, you two are so supportive and I can talk to you guys alllll day! you make me laugh you inspire me and you keep pushing me to better myself and I appreciate everything you ladies do and everything you are! Now the next Christine in my life, is a wonderful doctor friend and mentor. Christine is training me in my business. She works by my side day and night. I can talk to her any time. She is never frustrated with my constant questions and constant hyper-ness! I owe all three of these ladies so much gratitude and praise! And it was these three ladies that I though of while looking at the blossoming trees on my way to work this morning. I felt right with my life, that I have friends and mentors to carry me through my day is such a way that I can enjoy life instead of stressing over it. Because no one else can make me smile and laugh when my daughter makes me want to cry and no one else can inspire me to push past and overcome who I am to be better and to do better than these three ladies!

Thank you!
