Opera Concert + Holiday Preparations + My Band!
Monday, June 18, 2012
Well the opera concert was a hit! And both nights are now done!!!
The tons and tons of dress rehearsals really had me down and exhausted and I ate so many bad things from the stress in the lead up to it! But it's just made me realize that my issues with food will not go away over night! It will take many years to sort that out and until then I will just have to do damage control after it happens!
So now I'm trying to sort out everything for my trip to California in less than two weeks!!! My goodness, that's come around so quickly! I'm really excited to see all of my friends and the sun.... It's been the worst summer here in Scotland. It's a total disaster, last night it was like a monsoon and really overcast.
Anyway, so I'm booking all of my hotels and really excited that it's going to be a healthy holiday! I'm going on my own and then just meeting up with friends as I go around on my road trip so I'll have really good control over my nutrition. Lots of protein shakes and fruit and then a nice meal out at night. I've also made sure to book hotels that have a pool and a gym. I actually plan to LOSE weight while on holiday. Has that ever happened before???? Haha!
I had a practice with my band yesterday and it went so FREAKING well! I can't wait until we build up our repertoire and start playing gigs!!! We have a new bassist and he is just fantastic, he has picked up the songs really quickly and we have a new keyboardist starting next weekend! It went so well that it inspired me to start writing music again ( this band is a cover band but we've been considering doing some original stuff as well! ) and I haven't written in years so it's really feeling great at the moment!
Also, I'm .6 of a pound away from 50 lbs lost since March 22nd and 7.6 lbs away from 100lbs lost since I first started my journey 4 years ago!
