Day 113

Friday, February 3, 2017

Temperature: High 27° / Low 20°


What Kind of Day Did I Have & Why?

Today was Wedding Dress Fitting Day AND Friday, so BOOM! I need not say anymore...
...and I won’t...except that.


How Do I Feel? Health/Lupie Status?

Today was a no real pain day, and I only took one pain pill all day, so I’ll put it at a 2!
This is funny because after all that shit I was talking yesterday about needing to get back into my low numbers...apparently, all I needed was to have Wedding Dress Fitting Day!

Workout Time & Duration?

I fully intended to do my Chest and Back Day workout BEFORE my appointment, but all I could squeeze in was 30 minutes of Cardio. It wasn’t a complete bust, and I’ll move Chest and Back Day to Sunday instead...because I can!!!


Destination Wedding Task Tackled:

My wedding dress alterations are going pretty damn well! Debbie is so detailed...and I know I’m not supposed to be expecting perfection, but it’s hard not to have your mind on it when she is working!

Every time I step into my wedding dress it feels like magic!

I’m suddenly transformed and all stress disappears. I can no longer think about anything other than how amazing my dress and I am together! We’re a perfect match!

I now understand how someone can be addicted to trying on wedding dresses! I could do this every friggin day! Can this be a job? I guess it is huh? Models… but that’s overkill.

Once we went through the tweaks we need to make on the dress, the real fun started!  We got to play in different headpiece ideas...I hated some, liked others, and I had to really ask myself: do I want a veil or not? I now have an answer. So Check in that area! Decision made so now I can move along...


Any Old Destination Wedding Tasks Making a Comeback?

I have nothing!

Loving Black Love Moment?

While Che was at the gym, I sent him a text…

ahh...fried chicken acceptance...that’s love 😍

What am I happy for?

Fried chicken!

The first thing I wanted to do when I left my appointment with Debbie was go to Popeyes and get me some chicken!

Did I? No....Did I try?A little bit!

I asked Siri to re-route me to the nearest Popeyes. I already knew how to get there, but needed I someone on board with me...Siri was my friend...sad, I know. But I’m being honest and that was how it went down!

I changed my mind and went home instead. But, I did end up frying some chicken tonight on my own...It’s healthier that way, right? Since I know exactly what’s in it? And, I didn’t get the red beans & rice, fries, and biscuit that I would have demolished earlier!

Either way, that’s what I’m happy for today: Fried chicken!


What could I have done better?

I could have tried my wedding dress on longer!

What am I doing tomorrow?

Officially kicking our Christmas tree out of the house, and a whole lotta work!
