If I Only Do One Positive Thing Today...
...I'll remind myself of how far I've come, how miserable I was and how close I was to having a failed liver.
...I can now strut across the stage in a low cut dress, ... Read more

My First 5k!
Hey SparkBuddies, I'm at home (again) after feeling too ill to go into work. I'll be fine I'm sure as long as I can get some sleep and rest a bit. My brain won't shut off, so I thought I'd go on Spark to put my mind toward positive things which ... Read more
Perhaps I Won’t Lose It?
Granted I have been ill for the past 5 days (still feeling under the weather), and have been in rehearsals until 10pm or later at night, but still…
What if I can’t get to 170?
Maybe I’m shortchanging myself before I need to…
What... Read more
Back To It
Back at work today after 4 days of being in bed with the stomach flu. Still feeling pretty bad, but the show must go on right? Speaking of shows, the show I’m currently in is going very well and I look forward to singing my little heart out (sic... Read more
Weigh-Day Week 96 (Late Posting)
The flu has taken me over completely and I really haven't left the bed since around 5pm Saturday evening. It started right after I returned from my hike (which was wonderful) and it got worse the later and later I was in rehearsal. I became extr... Read more
I think ME time is really important. Not only does it help clear your mind, but it helps recharge you after a long week of stress. Tomorrow morning, I’m going on a hike by myself and I can’t tell you how much I look forward to it. I’ve done this... Read more
No Gig? No Problem!
Since I don’t have a gig for the early part of this year (except the one that I’m in now), I now have time to focus on other things. My main focuses will be both my career, my fitness and miscellaneous fun!

The Nature of The Business
Well SparkFriends, I didn’t get the part. ANY part at that. They began offering roles on Monday evening and I was not one of them. I’m really sad, but as it is the nature of the business I can’t be too sad. Those were the only auditions I had li... Read more
I MADE Time
You know what I did yesterday? I worked out despite not having much time at all between work and rehearsal.
I MADE time.
After a short nap (in which I couldn’t sleep, so I just laid there), I jumped up and got ready for rehearsal…and ... Read more
A Heavy Heart With A New Focus
I won’t lie to you and tell you that I’m feeling really positively about things, because I’m not. I need a new focus, and the scale just can’t be it right now. I’m up at 188.6 despite running yesterday (felt really good to run again, I did fairl... Read more
My Scale and Body Are In Cahoots
I swear they are! Despite staying on the lighter end of my calorie range AND getting 30 mins of cardio PLUS mild strength training in...I'm up 2 ounces! I'm not bummed though because I know I'm making very good progress and will see results via ... Read more
Weigh Day - Week 95
I can't say I didn't try my best, but as I predicted, I didn't hit my goal for the week. I am glad I did lose another pound after 2 days of no scale movement, but it's just not what I'm hoping for. I will not be changing my ticker because I simp... Read more
I've Got The Weight Loss Blues
It’s looking like I won’t be reaching my goal for the week and I’m a bit bummed. I did however manage to lose 2 ounces which is good, but not what I was hoping for. Because I’m fighting an upper resp infection, I’ve been too ill or tired to do c... Read more
I Wasn’t The Biggest One For Once!
2 NSVs For The Week:
1). Last night our costumer was taking measurements for the show and when she went to go talk to my director, I peeked down at all of the ladies’ dress sizes (I know, I’m bad). Guess what?
I WASN’T THE BIGGEST ONE.
