DAY 183

Friday, November 25, 2016


Temperature: High 40° / Low 31°

What Kind  of Day Did I Have & Why?

Pretty Damn Good!
I was able to get some things done around the house and was also able to work on my plans for the rest of the year. As a bonus - I'm not mad at my Thanksgiving dinner anymore! That means I was able to enjoy smaller portions of my leftovers and not feel like I was going to die. Now that's a good day!


How Do I Feel? Health/Lupie Status?

Well, I did use the heating pad a few times today and I did have the blinds closed most of the day...but it wasn't too bad. I was able to relax a bit, so I have no complaints. I'll give my pain a 4.5, but I was a little more tired than I have been this week.
I blame the Thanksgiving leftovers!


Workout Time & Duration?

Well see what had happened was... okay, here's the thing:

The gym was closed today for the holiday, so what was I supposed to do? Go to the gym 4 floors down in my building? Maybe...but nope! Not me. Hell, I'll go tomorrow and make it up. But I do need to start back using the building gym sometimes, I do like it. 


Destination Wedding Task Tackled:

We did a little bit of wedding lighting research, but nothing major quite yet... It's coming soon! I can feel it!

Any Old Destination Wedding Tasks Making a Comeback?

While cleaning out my purse, I came across the recipe for my favorite margarita from Tako! It's called Aloe & Elderflower and it is AMAZING! It's a seasonal drink and they stopped making it at the restaurant, but I had to ask for the recipe since I really think I want it to be my signature drink for the wedding. I thought to myself: since I'm seeing this again, it must be fate...

Aloe & Elderflower will be my signature drink! 

Here's the thing: when we got back from the restaurant, Che told me to write the recipe down and put it somewhere safe...but he's not the boss of me! Okay, maybe he was right because I really did forget about it...but still...

Loving Black Love Moment?

Che had the idea for us to stop what we were doing to look at some videos of our wedding venue on YouTube. We were all up in the wedding spirit and got some ideas for our own wedding.
I love when he has his wedding-sensitive moments! 

What am I happy for?

Happiness. I came across this quote today and I'm making this my mantra.

Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.
— Mahatma Gandhi

What could I have done better?

Che loves Christmas and has been excited about playing his Christmas music. I haven't quite switched gears into Christmas Time, but I could have done a better job of meeting his Christmas spirit. I love Christmas too, so I can show my excitement! It's the most wonderful time of the year damn it! 


What am I doing tomorrow?

Working all this bad food off! The gym is NOT ready for me!
