Day 191

Thursday, November 17, 2016

Temperature: High 61° / Low 45°



What Kind  of Day Did I Have & Why?

Today I felt like a storm was coming all day long. Since I'm wrapping things up at work, it's been a little cloudy. I know this is okay and I welcome it...but it is still a little cloudy today. 

How Do I Feel? Health/Lupie Status?

Although today was a busy day, I was able to get a nap in during the afternoon. I listened to my body and realized that if I didn't do what it was asking, I would have a hard time getting through the rest of my day. And that reminds me... it's time to take my last dose of pain meds... okay, now i'm back. All in all, I'd give the day a 4.5 with the nap included. Only minor aches. 


Workout Time & Duration?
Well because I allowed myself to run completely out of my protein powder, I struggled through the weights portion of today's Week 2 - Day 4: Leg Day: Quads, Calves & Core workout. On more weight intensive days like this, I would usually whip up a quick shake before hitting the gym. If I was thinking, I would have at least ate some chicken breast. That would've made sense. But nope, I did no such thing so by the time I got to the last quarter of my 1.5 hour workout, I was running on fumes. Let that be a lesson to you: Include protein for your workouts. Your muscles will thank you for it.  I'm getting mine tomorrow. 


Destination Wedding Task Tackled:

I'm wearing a sad face right now because I'm just realizing that there were no new destination wedding developments today. I definitely had things I could have done, but really - my last day of work is tomorrow and I have been working my ass off trying to make sure everything is handled before I am no longer there. I really didn't have time to do anything other than work today. It happens... I'm sure it'll catch up to me later. I'm not going to sweat it. 


Any Old Destination Wedding Tasks Making a Comeback?
Well yes and no. See, here's the thing... The fabric that I was so pissed about Bridals by Lori messing up is still sitting in a box on my floor waiting on my busy (also known as lazy) ass to take it to FedEx to be shipped off. As much of a hard time as I gave them and after my whole rant about their mistakes, I'm dropping ball now! I want to say that I'm the bride, so I can do it - but it's bullshit and I know it. I have to do this by the weekend. It has almost been a week and that's ridiculous. Plus, I think this damn shipping label is going to expire soon. I CANNOT call the people I bitched about to tell them, I let the damn shipping label expire, so this weekend it is! 


Loving Black Love Moment?

Che has a project at work that has taken a lot of his time during his day and tonight after dinner, so I appreciate him taking time out of his busy schedule to read my blog and provide feedback. He didn't have to do this, but I'm glad he did. I love that man!  

What am I happy for?
Spartacus for always wanting to be around me and laying curled up beside me while I'm journaling right now. He's a sweet pup and loves his Mommy (that's me! PupMom). He makes me happy - even on cloudy days like this one. Not as much as Che, but it's still happiness. 

Sparky tries to hang...but is barely able to. This is one of his best friends - yes, the water bottle.

What could I have done better?
Nada. Today was one of those I did my very best, so it is what it is kinda days. 


What am I doing tomorrow?

One thing I need to do, but probably won't do is get some more protein powder! Since it'll be my last day at work, I don't imagine too much more happening, but I never know what each day will bring me. We'll see...
