Day 87

Wednesday, March 1, 2017

Temperature: High 63° / Low 44°


What Kind of Day Did I Have & Why?

Today ended up slowing down even though I didn’t plan on it. The stars aligned to make sure that I did ZERO work outside of my own personal and house stuff, and I'm a believer that everything happens for a reason, so I’ll take it.


How Do I Feel? Health/Lupie Status?

I felt pretty good for the most part today, so I’ll put my pain at a 3.5.  I also decided that while my energy level is still low I need to be smarter and workout when I have energy ...and nights are not where it’s at. I enjoy working out with my boo and/or workout partner in the evenings, but I gotta listen to my body. Once I get my energy back I should be able to get back to some evenings - hopefully!


Workout Time & Duration?

I decided to workout first thing this morning, so I left the house with Che on his way to work and went to the gym. I’m so glad I did it too because my energy level was perfect and I was able to focus much better! I completed Arms & Shoulders Day in about 1.5 hours and felt great doing it.


Destination Wedding Task Tackled:

So this is where destination wedding planning can get a little funky...

Che went to the bank for the second time this week to get a wire transfer completed so that we can reserve our "Night Before the Wedding" restaurant, and he’s missing MORE information. This time he needs an 18-digit CLABE number - whatever that is! First, it was the restaurant's SWIFT Code/IBAN # and the address for the company and bank, now - this! I don’t know if it is the bank or the restaurant, but I’m not understanding why it is taking so many trips - shouldn't this be easier?!?

On a lighter note, I got to play with some nail design ideas for the wedding today. My usual nail tech is out of town, so I had a freakout moment and then I had to put my big girl panties on and let someone else do my nails. I ended up going to a girl that I found a long time ago and she is al about designs so we played in foils since I had the idea to try them back on Day 179, but never tried. I'm loving it and I think I'm going to rock with her for a little while to see what we can come up with for the wedding. My usual tech - I love her dearly - but designs aren't her thing.

I really ended up inspired to do an I'm engaged and like my nails photoshoot!

I'm so lame, but I'm happy and loving it! 


Any Old Destination Wedding Tasks Making a Comeback?


Loving Black Love Moment?

I received an amazing text from my Future Husband while I was walking home from the gym
...in the rain…

Need I say more?!?

What am I happy for?

I’m happy that I get the opportunity to make Che happy for rest of our lives.
This sounds crazy coming out, so let me try to clarify…

I’m marrying a man who thinks sooo much more about others than he does himself. I love that about him and it’s a HUGE plus to be with someone who has such a big heart, but I worry sometimes that he doesn’t think about himself enough. He really surprised me today and I was totally thrown off by his eagerness to look out for a friend in a way that he has difficulty doing for himself, and I fought him a little about it (okay, a lotta bit).

I now realize that because he doesn’t think about himself enough (in my eyes), I now have the opportunity to really pick up that slack and make this man happier than he already is.

I mean...I’m awesome now, but I can really work some magic!


What could I have done better?

Take a nap, take a nap, take a fucking nap! I was yawning and exhausted before 7pm today...

What am I doing tomorrow?

I got ZERO work done today, so I need to catch up and I also need to continue with the gym and check our wedding to-do list.
