Day 101

Wednesday, February 15, 2017

Temperature: High 43° / Low 28°


What Kind of Day Did I Have & Why?

Today was a pretty steady day...I got some wedding things rolling and had an overall good day. I did some reflecting over my lost footage of yesterday's Valentine's Day holiday...and...My first 100 days are almost over! Whew!


How Do I Feel? Health/Lupie Status?

I was really tired today, but I didn’t sleep well last night so I’m sure that had a lot to do with it. My pain was fine, so I’ll keep myself at a 2 today.

Workout Time & Duration?

Ummm...about that…

Yeah, no...it didn’t happen.


Destination Wedding Task Tackled:

Today I went back and forth with our planner, Joyce, about some of the quotes that she sent us. I know she is doing everything she can, but of course, I feel like I can find some things cheaper. I’m just a little irritated by it because I think these vendors are doing too much because they hear the word WEDDING! This is Mexico!  I searched on Etsy and found stuff cheaper (like, Papel Picado), but the only thing is that I’ll need to ship it to Mexico...and HOW much will THAT cost us? We will not be dragging all of our damn wedding decorations on the plane with us...only the beloved napkins.

I reached out to a few sellers and one of them is supposedly IN Mexico, so we’ll see what they say.


Any Old Destination Wedding Tasks Making a Comeback?

Loving Black Love Moment?

Che and I had a great talk about feelings today. I love that we can remind each other of the important things in life and today we reminded ourselves that our feelings matter. Sometimes it’s easy to forget or ignore that, but today I was able to love on my man in a communicatory way...Not a word - I know, but it felt right, so I'm keepin' it.

What am I happy for?

I’m happy for these 100 days that I have been journaling so far! I’m happy that I will always have this and be able to go back to it whenever I want. These days have been really special and I’m proud of myself for keeping it going!

But, I’m also looking forward to doing it again with these next 100 days!


What could I have done better?

I could have taken a nap today. It might be time to bring those back into the mix.

What am I doing tomorrow?

Tomorrow MUST be better than today! So...that’s first on my list.

The 100 Day countdown starts tomorrow, damn it!!!
