My Burlesque Name
Saturday, March 19, 2011      5 comments

I know - I've been MIA for a while now. Having trouble coming up with good blog ideas, quite honestly. Things have really picked up at work, I'm back to having hardly any nights to myself, and I'm about to take on another show - rehearsals sta... Read more
Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts P.S. I Used To Look Like This
Friday, March 04, 2011      69 comments

I felt it was high time for a blog like this today. I've been a bit down lately because I feel like things have slowed down (of my own accord) and I'm just SO ready for spring. So this is a pick-me-up blog that just further justifies the ABSOL... Read more
My Own "Runner's World" Quote of the Day
Friday, February 25, 2011      13 comments

I subscribe to the "Daily Kick In The Butt" emails from Runner's World. Every morning they send me a quote said by someone famous who runs. Sometimes the quotes really are motivational and prod me to get out of bed rather than roll over and go... Read more
The Body-Mind Connection

As I commented to a fellow Spark friend this week when she inquired about how I was feeling after my last downer of a blog: I always love writing rant blogs on Wednesday nights about my frustrations and how I'm feeling like the whole world is co... Read more
Rough Go
Thursday, February 17, 2011      11 comments

No doubt about it, I've been having a really rough go of it lately. I can't seem to put my finger on what exactly is wrong, since it seems like everything is wrong, and yet, nothing is wrong. I don't know if I've reached a point of such deep i... Read more
It's Not All In My Head!
Sunday, February 13, 2011      13 comments

A very welcome email from my doctor this morning - my Vitamin D is definitely LOW and she has prescribed an additional 1000 IU a day for me with more calcium. On Friday after my appointment, I had already decided myself to start taking 400 ... Read more
Now THAT'S Impressive!

I was a lazy bum yesterday. Opening Night of my show on Friday night meant we partied until 6AM! Needless to say, I did not make it to my 9:30am Zumba class on Saturday morning. I didn't move off the couch all day. I didn't shower. I didn't... Read more
Shoveling the "Chicago Snowpocalypse 2011" (video blog)
Wednesday, February 02, 2011      19 comments

You can ask my brothers (who were usually the ones responsible) but I don't think I've ever shoveled a day in my life. What can I say - I got bored sitting at home and I needed to get some exercise today :) Also - I LOVE SNOW! It's the Canadi... Read more
My Bad Ass Just Got Whooped
Tuesday, February 01, 2011      12 comments

I didn't run this morning. Last night on Facebook I was all like "I don't care how much snow we get tomorrow, I'm going to run anyway." Well, the bed beat me again this morning and I stayed tucked in late enough that I should have just taken a... Read more
Coffee Makes Me Run Like A Crazy Person
Sunday, January 30, 2011      14 comments

I don't usually run on Sundays. I don't usually drink coffee. Today I did both. Since I skipped my regular Friday long run and subbed in walking 2.5 miles to work instead, I was actually really craving a run today (Ok, maybe it's not the ... Read more

I've been having a lot of problems lately with obligations. You see, there are two different kinds of obligations - those that you agree to (dinner with a friend, showing up at work every day, scheduling a morning run or an evening zumba class,... Read more
An Apology to My Chiropractor
Monday, January 17, 2011      12 comments

So I walked home tonight. Remind me not to do that again after a bout of freezing rain. In a 45 minute walk home I slipped and caught myself more times than I can count (throwing my back in about 100 different directions - and after I JUST had... Read more

Any of you who read my status yesterday know that I wasn't having a wonderful Monday. In fact, I haven't had a wonderful Monday since the turn of the New Year (I know there's only been two of them, but neither one of them have been a good day).... Read more
2011 - The Year of the Ones
Saturday, January 01, 2011      26 comments

In all honesty, I don't like odd number years. Something about them makes me uneasy since some of the worst years of my life have been on the odds. 2009 was TERRIBLE for me - it was one of the worst health years of my life given that I had let... Read more
