I can help you out with that!
6 months ago, I registered for a Thanksgiving Turkey Trot. I thought, ďOh! Itís on Thanksgiving Day, cool!Ē
Wrong. Oh, so wrong.
The 5k was actually on the 24th of this month and I MISSED IT. I missed my own 5k that I registered for 6 MONTHS in advance.
I feel like an idiot. I feel absolutely stupid. Money wasted and even though I was pretty scared, I was determined to go, beat my time.
IDIOT. MORON. STUPID.
Pick your word, thatís what I am.
On the better side, I really look forward to holiday and am thankful for so much!
ENJOY YOUR HOLIDAY SPARKBUDDIES!

Iíve been on this journey for over 2.5 years!
Nutrition = Better. Itís a work in progress and being mindful of my eating seems to keep me centered.
Water Intake = Much better.
Exercise = None. Aiming for some in the next couple of days, been so tired.
Clothing Fit, Inches Lost = Bought more jeans unfortunately (I gave all of my 16s, etc away months ago). It was hard, but necessary. I want to feel good in my clothes, not be ashamed that my jeans are too tight or that my muffin top is out of control. I feel a lot better in my new jeans, which is what matters. Iíll get back to my 12s/14s, I have no doubt. In fact, I was able to zip up and button one pair of my 12s and not another pair. Sizes are so ridiculous.
Stress Level/Exhaustion = Meds seem to be working and Iím getting rest. Feeling positive and happy for the first time in months.
1). I was able to zip up one pair of 12s. Wasnít able to last week.
What I'm Grateful For:
Sweater weather in CA! Itís blustery and cold, LOVE it!
Show Biz News:
I closed the show with the kids this past Sunday (and got a raise in pay too!) and closed the professional around the same time. Iíll be singing for the Mexican government along with my choir in about 3 weeks (fully paid gig) and open another show the 2nd week of January. You know me, Iím crazy about THEATRE! I checked my resume today and saw that Iíve been in 7 shows this year alone, itís a record for me.
I won't give up SparkBuddies, I'll be back to my old self soon enough. I have faith. Love you all. Have an amazing weekend!

Hi SparkBuddies! It feels good to be back on Spark after such a long time. Iíve been super busy and also have been fighting a really tough bout of Depression. I feel 80% better and feel like Iíve come out of a long sleep. Depression sucks and I wouldnít wish it on my worst enemy!
Anyway, my 2nd 5k has been weighing heavily on mind for the following reasons:
1). I havenít done ANY running in months. Why? Illness, overbooked schedule and laziness (at times). Iíve worked out, but I seriously havenít done any running OR training in order to feel like Iím ready for this.
2). Iím super nervous. I was beyond nervous last year, so I think this may just be the gitters but man, I just canít believe this thing is next week.
Regardless, Iím going to do it and Iím going to do my best. If I donít beat my time from last year (47:18), I know Iíll probably be disappointed but Iím going to do my best not to be hard on myself about it. Even if I get to 46 minutes, Iíll be a happy camper. After all, I HAVE had my gallbladder removed, a serious bout of Depression where I couldnít work for 4 weeks and 3 shows. Iíll update you guys on my shows and gigs on my blog Friday.
Hope you all are doing well and thanks as always for your support!
