Day 78

Friday, March 10, 2017

Temperature: High 36° / Low 23°


What Kind of Day Did I Have & Why?

Dress fitting day is the best day! The snow is a hater, but it couldn’t keep me away from my beautiful dress.


How Do I Feel? Health/Lupie Status?

My hands feel really good today and I can really feel that since I’ve made REAL strides toward eating healthier and taking better care of myself, I’m at a strong 98% and I’m happy about it! I’ll give today’s pain another 2.5! That’s 3 days in a row!


Workout Time & Duration?

Now...I didn’t do anything workout related today, BUT during my wedding dress fitting with my seamstress, Debbie, I was told that I need to eat a pizza (yes, a whole pizza) and she hopes I’m not losing any more weight...so I’m happy here too! I do need to tone up, but my silhouette is on point!


Destination Wedding Task Tackled:

Today was Dress Fitting Day!!!

So, of course, it was a wonderful day indeed. The intermittent snow showers almost stopped me, but the clouds parted just in time for me to get to see my glorious gown. I swear I love it more every time I see it. The appointment ran over for the bride before me, so I got to see another bride’s dress. And then she saw mine too and it was nice to compliment each other and be in bridal bliss with another bride for a quick moment. But then...it was all about me! My seamstress, Debbie, got a lot done since our last appointment on Day 113 and I'm with it so far. I did have a few more changes and I got to meet Debbie’s new assistant (damn, I forgot her name ALREADY!) and I like her. I feel really good about this appointment and I do have homework to figure out what I want to do about the veil situation. She gave me the fabric so I can play with it at home and hopefully get inspired! I’ll be back in 2 weeks!


Any Old Destination Wedding Tasks Making a Comeback?


Loving Black Love Moment?

Tonight’s date night came unexpectedly and was wonderful (as usual). Che called me late this afternoon and told me that he knew today would be busy, so he made dinner reservations at Seviche. I’d never been before but was really excited and I always love when he’s extra considerate. Our whole dinner was Lupie friendly and delicious. It was fun to not have any idea what was coming to our table and we just made some decisions on the menu and enjoyed and experienced it all as it came. Perfect date night with my future husband!


What am I happy for?

I’m happy for a lot, but other than the obviously awesome life I have to be happy about on a daily basis, I’ll keep today light… I’m happy we took Uber to our restaurant tonight and on the way back home we got to ride in one of the self driving Ubers. It was pretty cool and for the quick ride -- we had a good time.


What could I have done better?

I got nothin here...I had a great day!

What am I doing tomorrow?

Working and enjoying my Saturday with my future husband! I like saying that and (‘ll only be able to say it for another almost 77 days! I have a lot of exclamation points happening today :)
