Day 117

Monday, January 30, 2017

Temperature: High 31° / Low 25°
I haven’t talked about the weather in a while (at least, I don’t think that I have) but it is cold as hell outside today. Seriously, if hell is real and I go to it, it’d be cold just like this.


What Kind of Day Did I Have & Why?

With the exception of the horrendously frigid temperature, it was a great Monday! I kept my mind on Mexico’s weather and blazed through the day!  iTunes approved my podcast, the week’s dinner is prepped and I got everything I planned to do done today!

A great way to start the week was today...I sound like Yoda...but I’m stickin' with it anyway!


How Do I Feel? Health/Lupie Status?

I feel grrrreat! I’m getting my Tony the Tiger on today! I’m choosing to ignore the feels like 18º weather and think about returning to Mexico today!


Workout Time & Duration?

HOW could I have almost forgotten this?!? I don’t know, but I be trippin' sometimes!

I made today Core Day since I heard that my favorite core teacher has brought her Core class BACK! now I know my waist will be snatched for the wedding because she does not play!!!

I said snatched - 🤣

 I spent a full hour with her and it hurt so good...Yes, I just typed that! Then I topped it all off with 1.5 miles on the elliptical. Not bad...but I didn’t stretch enough, so I know I’m gonna feel it in the morning. I would say that I’m going to stretch before bed...but that would make me a liar. The truth is that I'll just suffer through it. Damn, that sounds ridiculous...but it’s 12:30 and I’m actually exhausted and still have to hang up my laundry and clean my Invisalign trays out before bed.


Destination Wedding Task Tackled:

I spent my lunchtime looking at veil options and outfits to wear on the days leading up to the wedding day. I’m getting my Lisa Raye on and wearing all white, so I have some planning to do! I’m still not sure WHAT I’m doing about a veil...do I want one or not?!? Damn! This is taking too long. I need to make an appointment to look at them soon.

This is getting out of hand...well...not yet, but I can feel it about to get out of hand. There are too many options!


Any Old Destination Wedding Tasks Making a Comeback?

Nope. I’m wondering if I even need this space anymore, but watch... as soon as I get rid of it something old will come back. I’m leaving it...just in case. It’s not hurting anybody anyway.

Loving Black Love Moment?

Although our workout time only had a minor overlap tonight, I interrupted Che’s core workout on my way out and we paused for couple of minutes to greet each other, talk about our days a little and share a couple kisses at the gym. I love me some PDA and it was just enough to not unsettle Che. It was perfect!

What am I happy for?

I’m happy that iTunes is on point with their podcast approval system. They estimate 48 hours and they hit that shit! I officially have my very own podcast!!! This shit is real! I’m happy to be hitting goals and making dreams into reality! And it is still only January!!!


What could I have done better?



What am I doing tomorrow?

I’m excited about my appointment with my therapist, Julie, tomorrow!

I plan to journal as soon as I get home to keep it fresh!

That’s the PLAN...
