Day 69

Sunday, March 19, 2017

Temperature: High 42° / Low 35°


What Kind of Day Did I Have & Why?

Moral learned today: Fuck normal. I am the furthest thing from normal and guess what...my man loves me as-is. And my March Madness bracket is busted - thanks Duke!


How Do I Feel? Health/Lupie Status?

Although we had a somewhat busy day, I still managed to get a nap in...well, I really didn’t have a choice - my body started to shut down and I listened and took a 1-hour power nap and it was just what I needed! Today’s pain was at about a 4.5 today. This is definitely elevated from the past week, but I’m not gonna panic...I’m getting myself back on track. Plus, I ran out of pain pills, so that's me without my meds for the first half of the day. 


Workout Time & Duration?

Che and I completed an afternoon workout together and were in the gym for about 1 ½ hours or so. I kicked my own butt and challenged myself with heavier weights for Leg Day and was successful as fuck! I mean AF 😉.


Destination Wedding Task Tackled:

I don’t think we did anything of substance for the wedding today, but I’m fine with that. It has been a great weekend!

Any Old Destination Wedding Tasks Making a Comeback?


Loving Black Love Moment?

So...I had a freak out moment when we left the gym and it was time for us to get something to eat. I know that the anti-inflammatory diet is what I need to maintain my health and I also know that I haven’t been sticking to it this weekend, but the dietary restrictions got the best of me today and while we were walking down the street I expressed my frustration and told Che that I just want to be normal (almost in tears) - I already don’t feel normal, but now I can’t even eat like a normal person and I was upset. He stopped me in the middle of the sidewalk, hugged me, told me that he loves me “not normal” and wouldn’t want me any other way, and followed it up with a kiss...and "Fuck Normal." I immediately melted as my insecurities drifted away.

Have I said how much I love him?!? Because I do!

What am I happy for?

I’m happy that I don’t have to go full-on grocery shopping anymore. We ran our household errands today, which included picking up groceries and I was STILL exhausted by the time we were finished. All I could think is how bad it was when instead of picking up my groceries I had to actually walk through the store and do the shopping. I don’t know HOW I did that shit. Even though they mess up my shit every now and then, it still beats doing it myself!


What could I have done better?

I could have NOT had my freakout moment, but hey - I’m human. AND I would’ve missed my moment of extra love from my future husband.


What am I doing tomorrow?

Making tomorrow better than today!
