Day 38

Wednesday, April 19, 2017

Temperature: High 75° / Low 59°


What Kind of Day Did I Have & Why?

Today was a whirlwind! I had a lot to do in anticipation of the Bachelorette Weekend! Nails, Hair, Wedding Dress Fitting Day and Pre-Marital Counseling…Yup, all of that...


Workout Time & Duration?

Well, it isn’t much, but 30 minutes of cardio and some core work happened this morning. I did a bunch of running around today and I’m happy.

How Do I Feel? Health/Lupie Status?

I was running around so much that I didn’t really have much time to think about pain, so I’ll put it at a 2. One good thing is that I had a steady stream of energy through the day…

On a health note: I am thinking about re-exploring hydrotherapy colonics to go through a detox that I think may help my condition - gotta do some research on that next week.


Destination Wedding Task Tackled:

Today was dress fitting day, and I have to admit it was a little disappointing...okay, who am I kidding?

This is MY journal after all...

I was very disappointed. Pissed, quite frankly...it was for a split couple of minutes (I was gonna say split second, but that'd be a lie), but a wave of pissedness did flow through me. Upon my arrival, my seamstress, Debbie let me know that my dress wasn’t ready for me to put on or even see and that scared the shit out of me which turned into pissedness.

Why the hell am I even here?!?
Why wasn’t I warned about this when I texted you on Monday?
What the fuck is really going on right now…
Gather your shit Omi - this is a first offense and out of character for Debbie so breathe…
But really though - what the fuck is going on?

Debbie apologized profusely and explained that she wanted to explain everything to me in person, but I had to let her know that she was playing with my emotions and I need a warning in the future - although this shit can’t happen again...my wedding is TOO close. I had to remind myself that I do trust her, and we rescheduled for exactly one week from today, so I’ll reserve all judgments for next week. Debbie has been wonderful and I’d hate for things to go badly this far into our journey together. And what the hell will I do if it DOES go bad? I can't think this way right now.


Also, we got our FINAL, FINAL quote for our reception catering and now all we have to do is wire the money and check that one off of our list. Sounds great, but the last time we wired this company, it was a bitch. Hopefully, it doesn’t take too long - we only have until the 27th to pay 30 days in advance. We should be fine.

I gotta keep my positive vibes goin…


Any Old Destination Wedding Tasks Making a Comeback?

Nope, don’t think so.

Loving Black Love Moment?

We had a really good session for our pre-marital counseling tonight. We had “homework” to list ways that our partner can make us feel loved and appreciated and tonight we went over our lists and it was a good experience. I look forward to putting Che’s list in effect.

What am I happy for?

I’m happy that we decided to go through this pre-marital counseling. We are very happy together as-is and it feels good to share and find out more ways to become even more happy and satisfied in our relationship.

What could I have done better?

My diet was terrible today. I didn’t have bad food - just not enough food. With all of the running around that I did - I missed breakfast was behind all day. I’d be lying to myself if I said it’d be any better this week...but next week I need to get back on track. Meal planning needs to happen.


What am I doing tomorrow?

Packing up and getting ready for the bachelorette/destilorette weekend!
