Day 119

Saturday, January 28, 2017

Temperature: High 34° / Low 29°


What Kind of Day Did I Have & Why?

I didn’t think it was possible, but I topped yesterday! I am so proud of myself today that I could burst! Like blow the fuck up, for real!
This evening was a well deserved Omi celebration!


I’m actually celebrating MYSELF...look at me!

Today I interviewed my FIRST DestiBride YES for the podcast!

First YES as in the first woman to agree to let me interview her to talk about her destination wedding planning process -  and it was a ton of fun!!! Can't wait to keep it goin!

Thanks Rashonda girl!


How Do I Feel? Health/Lupie Status?

I felt great all day today! I did keep my wrist brace on for most of the morning, but it was really more of a precaution than a need. Today my pain was at a 3! That’s right...a 3!


Workout Time & Duration?

I designated today to be my rest day, so there was no working out going on


Destination Wedding Task Tackled: | Any Old Destination Wedding Tasks Making a Comeback?
Today was all about business, so I took a break here too...But it was oh so worth it in the end!

Loving Black Love Moment?

Anytime Che makes me breakfast in the morning, it will be my Loving Black Love Moment! Period! Even though it was a complete cheat meal - bacon and sausage included...it was all love! And I decided that we can do that every now and then...

...whether my stomach chooses to agree or not!

And then, after I got all my work done and was feeling oh so proud of myself, Che took me to dinner to celebrate me and my accomplishments even more.

No one celebrates me like this man!

Not even me - he has that talent on LOCK! And my heart too...

What am I happy for?

First podcast episode edited AND show uploaded to iTunes for approval?!? CHECKITY CHECK!

Happy dance will commence in 5--4--3--2--


What could I have done better?

I got a little frustrated with Che this morning for not “matching my excitement level” when I played my first podcast episode. He’s not very excitable to begin with, but he had just woke up and I was so excited that I was super needy in that area.  No, he wasn’t there being outwardly EXTRA like I am always, but that just isn’t his nature and I need to be better about understanding that. It isn’t fair to him. He's my #1 fan and I shouldn't make him feel bad. AND, we did end up celebrating this evening, so I’m happy!

Guess which plate was mine... 

Guess which plate was mine... 

And, I could have practiced SOME restraint when it came to my dinner. I smashed on it today and know that I have no intention to work out until Monday...I didn’t have a cheat meal today...it has been a CHEAT DAY!

But I’m in celebration mode so it’s okay right?

Ummm, no bitch you have a wedding in 119 days...cheat then.

and Do better.



What am I doing tomorrow?

Hopefully, I get to enjoy more Quality Time and make tomorrow better than today. These days are getting so good, I don’t know how I’m going to keep topping them - but I’ll enjoy trying!
