Day 93

Thursday, February 23, 2017

Temperature: High 69° / Low 58°
Guess who’s happy for the better weather - my joints! That’s who.


What Kind of Day Did I Have & Why?

Today was a good day. Little by little I’m getting back to my normal self and I’m happy for the progress. I even checked our wedding email inbox today...the question is: what did I do with the contents? lol, Baby Steps!


How Do I Feel? Health/Lupie Status?

I’ll give today a 5. Not too bad, but not wonderful either. If I keep eating well and start back working out soon - possibly tomorrow - I’ll feel better.


Workout Time & Duration?

Not today, because I had a lot of catching up to do with the podcast, but I’m not quite ready to get back into the gym yet anyway.


Destination Wedding Task Tackled:

I checked our wedding email and I believe everyone replied to us over the past couple of days. I have to admit that it was overwhelming, but I have a partner in this, so I’ll reply tomorrow to the ones that I can handle and then ask Che about the rest. Easy peasy!

But for now, I just can't.


Any Old Destination Wedding Tasks Making a Comeback?

Nope. But I do need to go into our Inbox and organize it a bit. It’s looking kinda crazy in there. I can’t find shit!

Loving Black Love Moment?

Che and I had a good conversation about having realistic expectations for our invited wedding guests. We have to keep reminding ourselves that just because we gave over a year of notice, some people will not be able to make it and it doesn’t mean that they don’t love us. The reality is that we are super happy, but the world doesn’t revolve around US...

...Must keep telling myself...

We are super happy, but the world doesn’t revolve around US


What am I happy for?

I’m happy to be feeling better than yesterday.

What could I have done better?

I didn’t take a nap and I know that is an important...if not essential...part of my recovery.


What am I doing tomorrow?

Tomorrow is dress fitting day and I’m not anywhere near where I’d like to be physically at this point, since I did all the wrong things last week - but I’m not in a bad place either. No matter what, I’m excited to be able to get back into my dress. I really do love that thing!

And we have a date night/movie night thang going on tomorrow too!

Come onnn...Friday!
