Day 82

Monday, March 6, 2017

Temperature: High 59° / Low 38°


What Kind of Day Did I Have & Why?

I kicked this week off with a doozie of a day! I had my first super Destizilla Moment and learned a lesson that will follow me for a lifetime - I’m sure….and I’ll never do THIS shit again.


How Do I Feel? Health/Lupie Status?

Today’s pain was at about a 3 today. I ate well, drank plenty of water and got my workout in today so I ended up with minimal pain and a decent amount of energy throughout the day. Go Omi!

Workout Time & Duration?

I made it to my Core Class today and added a little bit of a weight workout too, so I ended up with a 2 hour workout.


Destination Wedding Task Tackled:

Today I finished the lighting spreadsheet and had every intention of talking to Che about it...but it didn’t happen. Our planner, Joyce, sent us a reminder email which means we’re taking too damn long to reply. We’ll do it tomorrow.

We also received our guest confirmations from our travel agent, Sarah, and I’m super psyched about it! People are really traveling to Mexico with us to support our decision to become Man & Wife! This is so dope - I’ve been hanging around my future husband too long because I NEVER say that...but it’s true.

This is going to be DOPE!


Any Old Destination Wedding Tasks Making a Comeback?

(which rhymes with DOPE, but isn't as fun).

Loving Black Love Moment?

I made lunch and took it to Che’s office today. He’s been busy and I haven’t been to his office since he put up his newly framed diplomas so I thought today would be a great day to go and get some quality time in the middle of the day. Great idea! I love seeing him and if I could do it all day, I just might. But in the meantime, random lunches in his office with work just fine.

What am I happy for?

I’m happy that I have a therapy appointment with Julie tomorrow because this past week has been nuts and I need this session!
Oooh shit, I need it!


What could I have done better?

So this is when I snitch on myself:
The lightweight version is that I had a Bridezilla (or should I say “Destizilla” moment and got disrespectful for the first time and it was a total fail. I am obviously not built for ugliness and now I get to feel terrible about hurting someone who is very close to me. I learned a big lesson today: Control the Destizilla - for real.


What am I doing tomorrow?

Figuring out how to ease the destruction of my Destizilla moment ...

And trying to make tomorrow better than today.
