Day 120

Friday, January 27, 2017

Temperature: High 36° / Low 23°


What Kind of Day Did I Have & Why?

This Friday was probably one of the BEST Fridays I have had in a LONG time! And although I did have a minor wedding planning setback, I recorded my first podcast episode and was able to workout with my man AND get my Quality Time! I don’t know HOW I’m going to top today, but I’m looking forward to trying!


How Do I Feel? Health/Lupie Status?

No pain, no gain right? I’m just kidding. I just really wanted to say that. I was a little achy today, but nothing crazy. I got a lot of work done, so I did use my wrist brace to stabilize my wrist and make sure that I didn’t do too much with it... For the most part, I kept it easy on my hands, and I’ll put the pain at about a 5.5 overall.  


Workout Time & Duration?

Yes! I worked out with Che today and had a great time. It was Chest & Back Day and we got it all done in about an hour...we were hungry & extra motivated to get outta there and get our quality time crackin’!


Destination Wedding Task Tackled:

Well, I HAD my dress fitting appointment scheduled for this morning, but it just wasn’t meant to be today.
First, we had to reschedule because another bride with a wedding right around the corner had an emergency and I agreed to move back my appointment for her.

No problem at all here, who knows...I may be in the same place one day and want someone to be as much of a kind and understanding and beautiful of a person as I am (yeah, all of that!) so I’m cool...


about an hour before my new appointment time, a snow storm decided to grace our city and I was forced to watch the snowflakes blow in and my poor appointment fly away. We rescheduled for next Friday...

Even though mother nature is a hater, I’m not gonna let that bitch get me outta my element today. She has her good days and bad days...and I need her to be on her best behavior in about 119 days, so she can trip right now and get it all out of her system.

Plus, I did have a nice text conversation with Debbie and we are going to play around with headpiece options during our appointment next week too - I may figure out whether I want a veil or not at that time!

AND that gives me another week to hit the gym...so Mother Nature won nothing today,
Nothing at all!


Any Old Destination Wedding Tasks Making a Comeback?

Nope. But my ring is calling me to put it on...I hid it from myself (in Che’s drawer), and I can hear it calling for me to slide it on my finger for just a couple of minutes and maybe twirl around a bit...But I won’t! I’m waiting!!! How many more days?!? 120...the day is pretty much over, so let’s make it 119… This is totally doable!

Loving Black Love Moment?

Working out together, ordering delivery from our favorite taco spot for dinner and watching movies all night...need I say more?!? I got love all over me (in my Monica voice)

What am I happy for?

I’m happy that I finally got my solo recording debut! Damn, I’m on a roll today with my words. Since I’ll be keeping this forever AND it is out here for the world to see, I should probably specify a little, huh? Well, I wasn’t afraid to record my solo podcast episode where I introduce the mission, background and share a little about myself! I’ve had no problem with talking to other people, but talking about myself? Alone??? Whew shit! That took a while, but now I am cured!!! This is HUGE because I’ve been toiling back and forth with this for about a week now.


What could I have done better?






What am I doing tomorrow?

I get to try to make tomorrow better than today...a tall order!
