Day 86

Thursday, March 2, 2017

Temperature: High 42° / Low 29°


What Kind of Day Did I Have & Why?

It had been a very trying day. The type that you have to go through, but really wish you could go without, but know that it will make you stronger in the end...you know...that kind of day.


How Do I Feel? Health/Lupie Status?

On a somewhat good note, I was distracted and really don’t know how I felt physically.
I won't even try to give it a number, because I have no idea.

Workout Time & Duration?

I had ZERO time for a workout today. There just wasn’t enough time in the day for me...That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.


Destination Wedding Task Tackled:

I was so busy with work today that I didn’t really get to do anything for the wedding. I don’t even think I looked at our emails today...not even a glance!


Any Old Destination Wedding Tasks Making a Comeback?


Loving Black Love Moment?

Today we had a tough conversation that was very necessary, but still left us both physically and emotionally drained in the end. With the wedding coming up, we’ve experienced much gratification and with it also comes some disappointment. I know that is a part of life, and I also know that life isn’t fair, but today we really had to remind ourselves to “come from love” and I believe that we will come out of it so much stronger in the end. Our Loving Black Love Moment was us laying together in silence and just loving each other afterwards. 

What am I happy for?

I’m happy that we have each other and are okay with being in emotionally vulnerable positions together. We've worked hard on being more comfortable with this vulnerability, but it has allowed us to grow so much and trust much easier. Following our tough conversation, I was able to come out of it happy that we trust and can be honest with each other and know that our love is real and unconditional. My "bright side takeaway" is that, when we have outside disappointments, we know that we can always come home to our safe place. That’s something to be happy about - especially while making moves toward the wedding.


What could I have done better?

Nothing. I’m really proud of the way I handled this trying ass day.

What am I doing tomorrow?

Making tomorrow better than today, which will be easy as hell!
