What Kind of Day Did I Have & Why?

Well, I had a great weekend! I continued to improve healthwise and we got to take a walk down memory lane and took a peek into our future too! We’re getting married in 90 days!!!


How Do I Feel? Health/Lupie Status?

I’m almost back to my norm and I’m excited about it! We’ve been making great food choices and I’ve gotten more physically active, so I know the progress is real.

Workout Time & Duration?

On Saturday, I did 15-20 mins on the treadmill with Che and it was the first time we ever ran together. I’m looking forward to the weather getting better and us getting outside with this.

On Sunday, I had a 1 ½ hour workout in the gym and it felt good to be back at it. I think I actually skipped on the way back home...who am I kidding?

I skipped. Yup, I did.


Destination Wedding Task Tackled:

We made some progress today and we also agreed to meet weekly from now on since these days are chipping away and we have plenty of decisions to make. All the little shit really adds up.

Che found another transportation company that can give us the luxurious about to get married feeling that we want when we’re traveling to and from the airport. I sent an email to our wedding planner, Joyce, to make sure the company is legit and to see if she has any recommendations before we move forward with contacting them.

I also sent her an email to see if our guest book idea is possible since we are having a destination wedding.

We also tried to talk about our lighting options, but I still haven’t organized the emails so it was too hard to figure out what was what...I’ll organize and put it all into a spreadsheet since that seems to be the only way that I can think straight.


Any Old Destination Wedding Tasks Making a Comeback?


Loving Black Love Moment?

We’re getting married in 90 days...so what do we do?!? Well, of course, we have to pop a little bubbly to commemorate the milestone!

And we did it in a great way...

We watched a YouTube video of Secrets Maroma Beach so that we can remind ourselves of where we will be bringing our closest to have one of the best times of our life. This is going to be so fucking great! We also listened to the song that I will be walking down the aisle to. I know I said that I didn’t want to hear it until the wedding day, but I have been persuaded to not do that to myself.

I’ll have enough emotions going on, so I don’t need to be setting myself up to be messing up my makeup and possibly ugly crying down the aisle.

So we listened to it - and it’s so perfect!

Every single word of it speaks our language.

Annnddd...to top it all off, we tried on our beautiful wedding rings! This is so crazy!


Me: That’s a substantial wedding ring you have

Him: Well, I’m marrying a substantial woman


What am I happy for?

I’m happy that I decided to journal this journey. I may have forgotten that this weekend happened (or how it happened), but now I have it with me forever.

What could I have done better?

I’m getting back to drinking lots of water, but I could have done better.

Also, we received notice that a couple more people aren’t going to make it and I can take that news better. I did tell myself that I’m allowed to be upset, but not for long. And then, I have to move on from it. There are too many good things going on right now to let anything get me down. We have to enjoy this high!


What am I doing tomorrow?

I’m back in the gym for sure and I’m going to be back to work! And of course, making tomorrow better than today...which will NOT be easy, but I’m up for the challenge!
