Day 52

Wednesday, April 6, 2017

Temperature: High 72° / Low 45°


What Kind of Day Did I Have & Why?

I felt behind schedule all day - and I didn’t even sleep in. Is it too late to still be feeling Daylight Savings time? Yes, I already know the answer...but it still was a great day! 52 days!!!


How Do I Feel? Health/Lupie Status?

No complaints over here. I’ll give today a strong 2!
If I keep this up, I may end up feeling 1’s and 2’s for the wedding!!! I’m not gonna get too excited...oh who am I kidding? I’m excited about it!

Workout Time & Duration?

A great evening workout is exactly what I needed today! Now that I’m feeling good I can start back working out with my partner who I miss!!! Gotta call her and hope she’s available soon!


Destination Wedding Task Tackled:

Che is going out of town for the weekend starting tomorrow, so we had to get our homework done for the reception menu before he left. What did we do? Following our discussion, we sent an email to our planner, Joyce to confirm the following:

  1. Count of 30 people (including ourselves) and 5 vendors to arrange meals for
  2. Move forward with a 3 course plated dinner.
  3. Offering 2 different menu option to our guests & we need estimate on customization
  4. Make sure that the 1-hour of canapes for our cocktail hour is included in the quote.

Bonus: Che brought up the fact that our transportation count has changed since we now have final numbers, so we need to make sure the quoted pricing is aligned with new count.

Emails sent!

All those days of doing nothing wedding related are long gone!


Any Old Destination Wedding Tasks Making a Comeback?


Loving Black Love Moment?

He was tired and has a flight to catch in the morning but he still took the time to go over all of the wedding stuff with me tonight and it felt great. I love the fact that this wedding is important to him too and he makes time for the tasks. Considerate Che strikes again!

What am I happy for?

I’m happy that my bachelorette party is in 16 days!!! And I think I found my sexy ass jumpsuit too! Imma sleep on it and consult with my besties, but I’m sure that it's a winner!!!

What could I have done better?

I got really overwhelmed at one point today and I remembered that my therapist, Julie told me that I will need to get more “emotional love” and take it easy while I’m going through my trauma/grief counseling. I haven’t been following her instructions and I think I’m feeling the effects. This is a stressful time right now and I need to be chilling out, doing my breathing exercises and all of that!


What am I doing tomorrow?

Making tomorrow better than today, hitting the gym (my jumpsuit is no fucking joke)
and figuring out what I’m gonna do with myself without my man...he leaves me in the morning!
