The snow was steady today. No elaboration needed...It was just steady.

Snow beginning at 12:15 pm

Snow by 1:15 pm... I stopped taking pictures at this point and just enjoyed the snow globe view...I should've taken more - damn it!

What Kind of Day Did I Have & Why?

I was able to get my Christmas lights AND new ornaments today so what more can a girl ask for on a snowy day like this, really? I already did better than yesterday!


How Do I Feel? Health/Lupie Status?

Another good day physically but I did take an additional pain pill today. I’d say I was at steady 4 all day. Steady like the snow.

Workout Time & Duration?

Even though she had to trek through the snow to get to the gym (and I use trek, dramatically of course), Sweatin for the Destination Omi is still going strong! We didn’t make it to the gym until close to 7 tonight, but I was just as energized as ever. Chest and Back Day wasn’t ready for all of this today! And it only took about an hour. Really, most upper body days take about that long but that’s because I’m using lighter weights to tone instead of the monster weights I try to beast whenever I’m on my lower half workouts. Still, at that late of an hour to be in the gym, I’m proud of my hour!


Destination Wedding Task Tackled:

I’m changing this to “Destination Wedding Task NOT Tackled” today because I had to push reviewing my napkin email from Lea to tomorrow because I thought I was going to be decorating a tree today. Maybe I didn’t have to, but I did, and since we didn’t get to decorate the tree again, I feel like a bonehead. I’ll do it! I just want the mood to be right and I don’t want to feel rushed. Yes, I just said that...and I’m sticking to it.

Any Old Destination Wedding Tasks Making a Comeback?

Zero, zilch, nada, diddly-squat...

That’s what came back today...

Zero, zilch, nada, diddly-squat.


Loving Black Love Moment?

I woke up this morning to Che standing over me...or maybe he was kneeling, I can’t remember since I had JUST opened my eyes...but he was all in my space telling me that the weather channel is reporting a snowstorm so I needed to get my Christmas lights first thing this morning to beat the storm. Now, at first I was perplexed as to the reason for the urgency in his voice, but then I realized that my dramatics yesterday with my No Christmas Lights Blues affected him too and he wanted to make sure I got those damn lights today. He cares! He really cares!

This may seem ridiculous or small, but Che doing whatever he can to prevent my disappointment NEVER gets old for me! Love that Chocolatey Man of Mine!

What am I happy for?

Thanks to Che, making it to Michaels in time to shake my No Christmas Lights Blues!


What could I have done better?

I’m not sure how I could have done it, but I could have figured out a way to decorate our tree tonight. At least I think I could have. After all of my dismay yesterday about not getting to decorate it, I was just happy to have all of my materials to decorate if I need to...and that’s not right. Right??? Once it got to a certain point, I just tapped out and threw it on tomorrow’s To-Do List. Could I have done better? Hell, I don’t know!


What am I doing tomorrow?

I’m growing tired of saying this, but Decorating the Christmas Tree!

Maybe if I don’t put anything else on the list it’ll actually happen...outside of working out, of course!

Christmas Tree & My First Core Day!
