138 Days - Destination Wedding Journal - Black Destination Bride

Day 138

Monday, January 9, 2017

Temperature: High 32° / Low 26°, but it is 18º...
So it looks like the weather channel people were confused again...according to their forecast, this is impossible.


What Kind of Day Did I Have & Why?

Today was a nice start to the week. I didn't get EVERYTHING done today, but I made some great family connections and got some amazing marriage advice. And #GymLife Omi is back in effect! The Happy meter is on 1000!


How Do I Feel? Health/Lupie Status?

I’m not quite at 100% yet, but I'm definitely getting better. I’ll give today’s pain an overall 5.5. I would have scored it better, but towards the end of the day my arms and hands started to give me some trouble. It could have had something to do with today’s workout.

Workout Time & Duration?

Today was Chest & Back Day and I was in beast mode today. We had plans for the evening so I had to get right to it, knock out all the workouts and be on my merry way. I may have set a Chest & Back Day record - 45 mins!


Destination Wedding Task Tackled:

Any Old Destination Wedding Tasks Making a Comeback?

Nope, not today!

A lot of talking about it, but NO bein' about it.

Loving Black Love Moment?

Che and I visited some of his family today and it was really nice to connect with them and see a part of where he comes from. Those genes are strong! I had a great conversation with his Grandmother and she offered me some great marriage advice.

1. Don’t let anyone tell you how to make your spouse happy.
You should already know it, or figure it out yourself...They’ll appreciate it more that way.

2. Keep everyone out of your business
(sounds similar to #1, but it WAS more all-encompassing)

3. It is okay not to have kids...Do what is best to make you both happy.

I’m keeping these!

Doesn’t LOVE just give you the fuzzies???

This is my journal, so I’ll go ahead and answer:

Yes, Yes it Does!

What am I happy for?


I’m happy to be happy for no reason...While sitting here, I realize that today I’m just happy to be happy. I wake up happy and go to sleep just as happy, if not happier! I appreciate this so very much and have to take a moment of silence for happiness…

I’ll pour one out for inner happiness tomorrow...


What could I have done better?

Well, yesterday I said that I was going to get our meals prepped for the week and that was a total fail…but I’m on it for tomorrow!


What am I doing tomorrow?

Making tomorrow better than today, something wedding related, and getting these meals prepped!
I bought a little refrigerator calendar so I can list our weekly meals and it's looking quite pitiful over there. Oh, and I can't forget to pour one out for happiness !
