Day 61

Monday, March 27, 2017

Temperature: High 71° / Low 53°


What Kind of Day Did I Have & Why?

Today is March 27...My wedding day is May 27...
My wedding is 61 days from today! 61 DAYS!
No complaints over here - only confirmations...


How Do I Feel? Health/Lupie Status?

I’m still feeling great! Eating well and staying active has provided great results for me and I have no intentions on stopping at all. Today I was at about a 2. I can’t tell if it’s workout soreness or Lupus, but I’m leaning towards workouts. I’ll keep an eye on it.

Workout Time & Duration?

Today I missed my Core Class and ended up doing a combination of Core and Upper Body workouts with Cardio and ended up in the gym for my usual 1 ½ hours...I’ve been thinking about this for a while... and I think I’m going to try decreasing my duration to 1 hour and increasing the frequency to 7 days/week. Every day I must do something for 1 hour - not always going hord, but something...That’s my plan and I’m sticking to it.


Destination Wedding Task Tackled:

We received confirmation for our deposit on the space in the restaurant that we’re having our night before the wedding “Night on the Town” Friday night dinner.

Che sent that wire transfer back on Day 81 (20 damn days ago) and we’re JUST NOW getting the confirmation from the restaurant. A wire transfer DOES NOT take that long! They had to have been dragging their feet on that one but they better not do that with our dinner. We’ve seen great reviews (Che checks regularly) so I’m not worried about it...but still…


Any Old Destination Wedding Tasks Making a Comeback?


Loving Black Love Moment?

Che came home for his lunch break today and brought me my favorite salad. It’s always nice to see him in the middle of the day...He brightens my life! I love me some him!

What am I happy for?

I’m happy that the weather has been nice lately. Now that I think about it, that may have something to do with my great condition too. Yeah, I'm sure it does! Cold weather is definitely bad for my joints and this warmer weather has been pretty fucking awesome!


What could I have done better?

I’m back planning out my days so that I can maximize my productivity and I decided to add an hour of “Wedding Fun” into my days starting tomorrow. Hell -- my wedding will be in less than 60 days and we have more to do and I want to REALLY enjoy this time -- so instead of putting here that “I could/should have done something wedding related” -- I’m doing something about it!

This is a GREAT idea if I can say so myself!

2 pats on the back and a gold star for Omi!


What am I doing tomorrow?

In addition to my therapy session (Woohoo!) I’m making tomorrow better than today and implementing my new daily adjustments:

1-hour Workout + 1 hour of Wedding Fun!

And celebrating because at that point,

I’m going to be
Mrs. Douglas Che Allen
in 60 Days!!!
