Day 81

Tuesday, March 7, 2017

Temperature: High 61 ° / Low 43°


What Kind of Day Did I Have & Why?

Today was much better than yesterday. I’ve never enjoyed a therapy session more that I did this afternoon! Where would I be without my therapist? Would I have made it to Day 81? Who the hell knows!


How Do I Feel? Health/Lupie Status?

I’ll put my pain at about a 3 today and my energy level was definitely up!

Workout Time & Duration?

Che and I completed our late ass evening workout together and it was hard to get started, but that’s because we got a late start. We both did upper body and my Arms & Shoulders workouts have been paying off if I can say so myself! We were done in about an hour or so...we were hungry!


Destination Wedding Task Tackled:

I FINALLY sent the email to our wedding planner, Joyce, about our lighting vision to give some clarity and let her know the things we definitely want to move forward on. Who would have known that lighting would be so intricate?!? I want to get this checked off soon because it’s taking too damn long - and it’s our fault. More mine - but we're a team damn it!

After the bank sending him back and forth for information last week, Che was finally able to send the wire transfer so that we can reserve our "Night Before the Wedding" restaurant! He sent the confirmation email to our wedding planner, Joyce, this afternoon!

I also found a really great bridal headpiece website that may have the answer for me. They let you try 3 pieces and then return what you don’t like!



Any Old Destination Wedding Tasks Making a Comeback?

Nope, but since I don’t have a bachelorette party section (and I thought about adding one) I’ll add that I’m hardbody excited about this too and I’ve started looking at outfits, hair, makeup, shoes and all of that shit! makeup artist and all!

Loving Black Love Moment?

Today’s Loving Black Love Moment goes to ME! Che got to the gym and realized that he forgot his lock and gloves - which would frustrate anyone. I calmly provided a resolution (throw my stuff in my gym bag so he could use my lock since he had his work clothes) and he was able to have enough relief to stay at the gym and workout. He is always the person to “diffuse my attitude”, so it was nice to be able to return the favor tonight. I’m learning from the best!

What am I happy for?

I’m happy for my therapist, Julie! Hands down, she is the shit! I always leave feeling healthy and restored and it’s really great to be able to work through my issues with a professional and find the deeper meanings when needed.  I’m also happy that our pre-marital counseling will be starting next week! The appointment coordinator reached out to schedule us, so this is big!


What could I have done better?

I’m proud of me today. I even turned down an offer to eat at my favorite restaurant, Tako, tonight because I’m cutting out wheat, rice and all of that shit this week. I love me some Tako tacos, but we had salmon salads for dinner tonight instead!

What am I doing tomorrow?

I have a lot of work to do to get this Desti retail online store open and I gotta put it into overdrive tomorrow!
