131 Days - Destination Wedding Journal - Black Destination Bride


MLK Jr. Day!

DAY 131

Monday, January 16, 2017

Temperature: High 41° / Low 35°
I have no idea how it feels out there because in the house all day and in the bed for most of the day.


What Kind of Day Did I Have & Why?

Today was a day of recovery...I may or may not have done too much last night while hosting the Steelers v. Chiefs game, so today I am in straight
get my shit together for the rest of the week mode.
But, hey! It was worth it because we won and had a great time doing it!


How Do I Feel? Health/Lupie Status?

I woke up feeling like my hands were made of Jell-O...hot, uncomfortable and old Jell-O. And my ankles weren’t in great shape either. My meds, a heating pad, and a warm comfortable bed have been my saving grace for the day. I’m pretty sure it was ½ hangover ½ Lupus flare warning...not a full-on flare, just Lupus warning me to get my shit together before I have some real problems. I read the warning loud and clearly… I’m getting it together! My pain was an overall 7.5 today...I did the math...8.5 this morning, and 6.5 now equates to an average of 7.5. Tomorrow will be better! I know it!


Workout Time & Duration?

Nothing today, but I’m working on getting this week’s workouts planned for the rest of the week
so I can keep my #GymLife train rolling! Last week was too good!


Any Old Destination Wedding Tasks Making a Comeback?

Destination Wedding Task Tackled:
Nope...full on recovery mode!

Loving Black Love Moment?

Che knew I wasn’t feeling well, so he took the reigns on the house today.
Our teamwork always gives me the warm & fuzzies...there wasn’t even a conversation necessary.
He just knew and did...I love that man!

What am I happy for?

Today is Martin Luther King Jr. Day and I’d be remiss if I didn’t give it a shout out. What better place than the place that I reflect on my reasons for happiness on a daily basis. Today I’m happy that men and women like Dr. King did the hard work for people like me to be able to live with the freedoms that are afforded to ME. This country has a long way to go, but they fought for change for ME well before I was even a thought in my parents' mind and that is something to be happy for! Thanks Dr. King!


What could I have done better?

The first thing that comes to my mind is that I could have went to the gym, but who am I really kidding?
I needed this break so I'll be able to have energy for the rest of the week.
It's conservation!

What am I doing tomorrow?

Getting back on my shit!
Gym, work, wedding planning...all of that!
I’ve got shit to do, yo!
