**I’m a bit frazzled today (in a good way) and hope that my following blog makes sense. HA!**
My Thursday night was fantastic! The reading went extremely well, I was surrounded by amazingly talented people and was able to check out a brand new musical just being written! All in all, it was a wonderful night! The musical is about a very famous singer (and drag queen) named Sylvester whose story is beyond amazing. I was able to meet the playwright, a producer for the show AND most amazing of all, one of Sylvester’s sisters.
Last night’s reading renewed me in so many ways; I was surrounded by positive people and our focus was a person that never apologized for who he was. Before I lost the weight, I always apologized for me, ALWAYS. It didn’t matter what it was for, but I always did. I approached my life like that, until I realized just how special of a person I was (how special all of us are really). I deserve to have a good, happy life and can be myself with all of my quirks. This kind of world may not exsist yet, but I fantasize about it nonetheless: a world where everyone accepts everyone for all of their quirks or weird ways. A world of acceptance. A world of love. Last night was just one of the reasons why I do theatre, and I felt so good about it, felt that this really is what I’m supposed to do. I do theatre to share my gift with others, to bring thought provoking works to life, and most of all to make the people around me feel the happiness I feel when I’m on stage.
All in all, I just want to spread the love.
Not much going on this weekend except for a lunch date with a dear friend tomorrow afternoon. Funds are low so I won’t be doing too much of anything anyway. I’m thinking of doing a hike on Sunday morning which should be fun. Rehearsals for the show start this Monday and I am beyond excited to get going!
In weight loss news, there has been…none. I’ve remained in my maintenance range and needless to say, I’m not entirely upset. I know why I’m not losing weight, it’s pretty simple. I’m not able (and truth be told I’ve simply become lazy) to work out as much as I’d like and would rather go to bed early than take 30 minutes to do a brisk walk. With rehearsals starting and the 1 hour drive that comes along with that, I just don’t have the motivation to do it. I still have given myself until April to lose the 15lbs, but I just don’t know that I’ll be able to in the time alloted. My main focus right now is my water intake, nutrition and being able to fit into my 12s as comfortable as I am in my 14s. My 12s fit, but they are a bit snug, so that’ll be another focus of mine as I continue on. I have no doubt I’ll get there.
Have an amazing weekend SparkBuddies!
