It's 10:58 ... do you know where your calories are?

Tuesday, January 15, 2013

Mine are .. well I don't know. I had a few too many to keep track of today. Spaghetti is my downfall apparently. And I was so hungry and in a hurry from school that I didn't measure. Bad me.. Bad bad me. I'd smack my own hand, but .. eh.

It wasn't too much over. Just have to fine tune and regulate myself. Of course, since It's that time of the month, so of course I'm craving carbs and sweets and.. I need my SP app back. I did so much better when I could look at my totals at any given time of the day. It was easier to track too, since I usually keep the laptop upstairs. Course, I thought that would leave me an opportunity to burn more calories running up to track things.. ehhhh.. FINE TUNING! At least I got lots of walking in today. Still not all in one chunk, but 4 rounds of .5 miles each. Trying to push myself to walk a little faster than normal. Baby steps.. but I am growing.

On a different note, we started rehearsals for Grease tonight at my school, and I'm pretty sure that I'll be put through my paces with that. Not performing, but keeping up with all the noise that goes on to make sure the actors have what they need, where they need, and when they need it. It's my first gig as a stage manager. Well, assistant stage manager... S'gonna be fun. The rest of my life's gonna be fun, what am I talking about.

Short. Sweet. Simple. Goodnight world. Tomorrow is another day.

    My experiences in theater have generally left me sweaty, starving and cranky. I've directed, staged-managed and acted and stage-managing is the WORST because everyone thinks you belong to them and wants to order you around. It's also really fun and really worth-while, but you tend not to get the love that you deserve.

    I would suggest always having your water bottle with you, and keeping a supply of healthy snacks in your bag. Otherwise you will be lured by the siren call of the vending machines.

    In response to your title, yes, I do know where my calories are. About half are on my left hip and the other half on my right!

    Here's what I've discovered that may be useful to you too:

    1) I've found that when I don't eat properly earlier in the day (i.e. lots of fiber and protein), I crave all kinds of junk food later on.

    2) Sometimes thirst signals can be mistaken for hunger signals so drinking a glass of water may keep you from getting hungry.

    3) I have to eat about every 3 hours or cravings set in.

    4) Before eating anything, I've started saying to myself "I'm choosing to eat X". I do it without judging myself, but simply acknowledging what I am doing reminds me that I have the power to take care of myself and my body.

    Btw-spaghetti's fine...I suggest using whole wheat pasta, though. Good luck with "Grease"! Sounds fun!
