Day 27

Sunday, April 30, 2017

Temperature: High 90° / Low 59°


What Kind of Day Did I Have & Why?

Today was definitely better than yesterday! I felt better about myself and it showed throughout the day. 


How Do I Feel? Health/Lupie Status?

Yet again - another day with no complaints! My pain was probably at a 1 today!

Workout Time & Duration?

So...here’s the thing...
I went for a 2 mile run with Che and that was terrible! Like, really, really terrible. First my ankle, then I’m too hot, then I’m too tired...my body fought me all the way, but thanks to Che I made it. But then, our last leg was to the gym to add some weights into the mix and I killed that workout. So, I suffered at first but ended up all good in the end. Including the run, I’d say that we worked out for about an hour and a half.


Destination Wedding Task Tackled:

Yes, yes, yaaassss...we're making progress!

The seating chart!

Ohhh....the seating chart…

I worked on the seating chart and showed it to Che and initially, he thought it was fine, but with only one suggestion...that once suggestion got my wheels turning and turned into about an hour of discussion - with no resolution. We’re close, but not quite sure.

💖 I also showed him my Pinterest pins on ideas for the welcome letter/itinerary for the guest welcome bags and he doesn’t really like much, but he doesn’t hate much either, so I may be able to exercise some creative control here - we’ll see how that goes. I’ll make 2 options this week and figure out how we can get these bags customized.

💖 Che sent our wedding day timeline to the DJs so that they can know what they should be doing and where and when we need them.

Time is really ticking!


Any Old Destination Wedding Tasks Making a Comeback?


Loving Black Love Moment?

Che took me to lunch after our workout and we ended up having a good conversation about him being comfortable and welcome to discuss the business with me without me being sensitive or defensive. I will work on allowing him in so that he can help me stay on task. I really couldn’t pick a better partner for me. I love that man...he’s always trying to make us better and I appreciate him for that.

What am I happy for?

I’m happy that today’s workout was better than yesterday.

What could I have done better?

Instead of taking a nap, I decided to go to the mall to cash in on my birthday coupon at Victoria’s Secret. Yeah, that was my decision. Smh


What am I doing tomorrow?

Making the most of the beginning of the week! And going to the bank...and calling Delta to get our plane tickets changed so we can REALLY get excited about our honeymoon!
