Day 159

Monday, December 19, 2016


Temperature: High 28° / Low 18°


What Kind of Day Did I Have & Why?

I had a good day, but it was too rushed.
I squeezed a little too much into my day, but now that I’m at the end of it, I think it was necessary and worth it. Sometimes I just have to have one of those days. I was able to get a good amount of work done, had a puppy play date with a girlfriend and have some great Girl Time, managed a weak ass workout, got some more work done and cleaned up a little and got dinner together. Not a bad day at all.


How Do I Feel? Health/Lupie Status?

I’ll give today a 2 today. I really had a good day physically and considering today was probably the most hand intensive workout day - Arms & Shoulders, that’s pretty damn good!

Workout Time & Duration?

Today’s workout was kinda crappy. The music in the gym was off, I wasn’t focused and it showed. I wasn’t there long enough and have to admit that I didn’t complete the whole day. We did the meat of it (the Arms & Shoulders weights part), but the Cardio and Core didn’t happen. I was on a bit of a time crunch, but there is still no excuse. I told myself I’d do the Core at home and...negative. I think I was there only about an hour.
No bueno Omi...No bueno


Destination Wedding Task Tackled:

I realized that in all of the wonderfulness that took place on Saturday, I completely forgot that my fabric from Bridals by Lori arrived. I probably forgot because we were on our way to our wedding ring fittings when we picked it up, and then the day just got better and better...Anyway, while on the way to the gym, my clumsy ass tripped over the box and I remembered that I am going to open the box and take it to Debbie tomorrow afternoon. Excitement washed over my body and I was ready to take on my workout more than ever! Wedding Dress Bawdy here I come!  


Any Old Destination Wedding Tasks Making a Comeback?

While visiting with my girlfriend this afternoon, we ended up catching up on everything since we hadn’t seen each other in what feels like forever. It really has been a long time tho. We ended up talking about some of my early guest list drama and I realized that it had been a little while since I talked about it...I mean I talk about it with Che, but not really with others. It was somewhat of a reminder that as hurtful as it was in the beginning...I’ll get over it!

Loving Black Love Moment?

I think my busy day had me a little wired tightly by 9/10:00 so I got a little stank. What did I need? To close my laptop, tie my hair up and lay across the couch with my man...so that’s exactly what I did.

The best medicine: Love!

What am I happy for?

Puppy play dates! I need to have them more - for Sparky and for me! It was a great energy exchange to be able to chat with my girlfriend and talk about whatever we want...and watch our pups exchange their energies and have a great time too! More puppy play dates in 2017!


What could I have done better?

I kicked myself enough about today’s damn workout, so I won’t keep going on about it. But, it should have been better. Plain and simple.

What am I doing tomorrow?

#Return of GymLife and Unboxing my Bridals by Lori Fabric box and taking it to Debbie! And I need to email Lea about these napkins still. The mere fact that this is THIRD on my list is what scares me most! I’m doing it tho!
