Day 137

Tuesday, January 10, 2017

Temperature: High 43° / Low 36°


What Kind of Day Did I Have & Why?

Productive! Unlike yesterday, I did EVERYTHING I planned on doing today, so no complaints here.


How Do I Feel? Health/Lupie Status?

A little better, but the pain is still at a 5.5 today and my hand pain is officially on my nerves at this point. I’m a little frustrated by the fact that I’m still feeling a little raggedy -- I’d like to be at 100%, but oh well. I think this is a testament to just how bad last week’s flare really hit me. My body can take all the time it needs to recover.

Workout Time & Duration?

I needed this Rest Day, but I’m oh so ready for tomorrow’s Core Day! I’m hitting that baby hard - especially since I know that my next dress fitting is around the damn corner. Who knows how much I can do between now and then, but I’m gonna do something damn it!


Destination Wedding Task Tackled:

Che and I talked about the conversations he has been having with our “Night on the Town” (the night before our wedding ceremony) restaurant. On Day 160, we reached out to see what type of menu customizations we could make and they've been going back & forth for a while. We now understand that whatever changes we make, they still need to meet their current pricing. This makes sense to us since they need to be able to cover the costs of everything associated with setting up the private area we want...tables, chairs, linens etc. Our planner Joyce, is back from vacation so it is definitely time to loop her into everything...We’ll let her work her magic! I'll reach out to her this week. [adding to calendar now]


Any Old Destination Wedding Tasks Making a Comeback?

Nope. But I did realize that my next dress fitting with Debbie is on Thursday and I need to make an appointment with Melanie at Goldstock for my final wedding band inspection. Those aren’t exactly comebacks since I haven’t checked them off my list yet, but they just came back to my mind… so there!

Loving Black Love Moment?

Che came home for lunch today and we got to spend a little Quality Time in the middle of the day! I love it when that happens. That hour is a nice break in a busy day for the both of us to take a timeout from it all and be in each other’s presence for a little bit. Gotta love a mini-recharge to take on the rest of the day!

What am I happy for?

I’m happy to have a fiancé that is just as involved in the wedding planning as I am...if not more at times (I had to throw in the “at times” cuz I’m hatin a little). He doesn’t have a Pinterest page, but who the hell cares!
He’s all in!
The last few days of posts will prove it...my Destination Wedding Tasks Tackled have been all on Che lately!
I need to catch up, but I’m happy about it!


What could I have done better?

I think I’m going to start adding 30 mins of cardio to my workout rest days...This body isn't in the place to be doing just nothing on ANY day right now. I don’t even have to go to the gym for cardio...I can do it in the building’s gym downstairs.

Actually, let me change that!

No more “I think”… I am...

I AM going to start adding 30 mins of cardio to my workout rest days!
Muuuch better!


What am I doing tomorrow?

My Top 3:

1. Core Day!

2. Making my wedding band appointment!

3. Drinks with the girls tomorrow night...We need to catch up!
