Day 130

Tuesday, January 17, 2017

Temperature: High 60° / Low 44°


What Kind of Day Did I Have & Why?

Today was one of those days where I found out just how productive I can be...And I surprised myself. Wedding napkins are almost done, I got plenty of work done, took care of my man and squeezed in a workout! I did well with my time today!


Good job Omi!
Thanks self!


How Do I Feel? Health/Lupie Status?

I really didn’t think about my pain much all day, so I think that puts me back at my 100% mark! Finally! I haven’t been here since Day 141, and it feels nice. My pain was at about a 4 today, which is probably why I was able to get so much done today. I’m rejuvenated and didn’t even know it!


Workout Time & Duration?

I almost didn’t workout today, but I’m proud of myself...Why so proud of myself?
Because at 9:30 pm I put on my big girl panties (which in this case included workout pants, a sports bra and running shoes) and took my ass downstairs to the gym for cardio and core! I did the damn thang too! I even got caught flexing my muscles in the mirror, but I don’t give a damn...I’m liking the progress!


Destination Wedding Task Tackled:

Che and I discussed the restaurant options a little bit more and we are closing in on a decision. That’s great, but these napkins tho… I really can’t believe how much excitement some damn napkins can bring…

But they do!

  Lea at Aline Mayan (I fondly call her my napkin lady) sent a follow-up email with PICTURES of the progress
on our custom napkins (it sounds great just typing it) and I’m so convinced that this is going to be amazing!


Almost Done!


Any Old Destination Wedding Tasks Making a Comeback?

Nope, not today. But Che reminded me that we need to make arrangements for our transportation to & from the airport. The arrangements through our travel agent include a shuttle option, but we would like something personal just for the two of us.

Loving Black Love Moment?

Che wasn’t feeling well today, actually - he’s sick and I got to play Nurse Fiancée today. I don’t get to see him so vulnerable like this and it is kinda sweet. I'm sure he got tired of me going "awww" and looking at him every time he sniffled yesterday, so I today I wanted to kick things up a notch and actually do something to make him feel better. Medicine, food, drinks whatever he needed, the love was there for him.
It's so easy to do because he’s so good to me every other day.
Hell, even on his sickest day, he still wanted to celebrate my business triumphs - who does that?!? My future husband does...that’s who!

What am I happy for?

I’m happy to be able to take care of my man when he is not feeling well.
I’m not too busy and I’m not too sick and it feels great to really be able to be a partner.
He’s taken such good care of me over the past few weeks, so I’m happy TO BE ABLE to return the favor. It feels good!


What could I have done better?

I could have taken a nap today. I was doing well with those, and need to make sure that I don’t forget them.
My body will thank me for it!


What am I doing tomorrow?

Hitting the gym with my workout partner, continuing my Nurse Fiancée fun and whatever else I can fit into the day!

Oh, and I have my first meeting with a Female Entrepreneur Masterminds Group I joined! Can’t forget that!!!
