Today starts my 40-day Lent challenge!
I read something yesterday that caused me to think... I won't get into the details, but basically it made me think about how well (or not well) I've been loving myself. It made me think about how much... Read more
Happy Fat Tuesday, everyone!!
Believe it or not, I do participate in Lent. To participate in such a uniquely Christian thing may seem weird on the outside (I am a Jew who is a practicing pagan/Wiccan), but I do think that discipline and s... Read more
So I don't know if I mentioned that I'm playing a stripper in "Gypsy," but I am. It's fun... and I am still picking glitter out of my teeth. :)
It's also potentially a very vulnerable experience because I've got a lot of exposed skin.

Enough is enough
OK, so a while back, I got an alarm clock that simulates a sunrise/sunset. I bought it in a moment of desperation, and I'm happy to report that it has completely revolutionized the way I wake up and the way I fall asleep. Wake-ups are gentle o... Read more
Well... the show opens this week...
It's a complicated, expensive show ("Gypsy" - in case you're curious), and there's a lot that still needs to be done. I have done my part (even made my own costume) - and so now, I'm going to see if the... Read more
The combination of being busy and being tired is leaving my defenses down. I didn't have a real great day eating-wise yesterday. I didn't eat anything garbage-y, which is good - and I didn't go completely off the rails - but I did go outside m... Read more
Sleepless in Delaware
Bolted awake at 3am and have been awake since.
I'm just grateful that I have a rehearsal tonight which finishes early-ish - around 8:30, which gets me home by 9. My plan is to get the workday done (all my meals are planned out - yay!), go ... Read more
Seriously, winter, GO AWAY
Every time we let the dog out to do her business, it's a big dramafest because she doesn't know where to pee or poop. (She's a Great Dane. That gives you an idea of the amount of snow we're dealing with.)
I nearly fell on my caboose leavi... Read more
Keep on truckin'
I'm kind of amazed that I actually worked out this morning. Between yesterday's shoveling extravaganza and these dumb pills making my entire body ache, I really wasn't sure how I'd do... but I did it anyway. So - go, me!
I ha... Read more
Lemons into lemonade!
A snow angel came with a snowblower this morning and unearthed my car! I had no choice but to pay it forward. Spent 2 hours digging my neighbors out, and we turned it into a party... because why not, right? We all pitched in and dug each other... Read more
Well... at least my pants fit better
Two doses into my antiviral medication and it's already kicking my @ss.
I am lethargic, my body aches, my head feels swishy, and all I want to do is sleep...
...but it appears to maybe be working. The redness around the blisters is al... Read more
Woke up this morning to weird blisters on my leg. Bizarre, right? Watery blisters, not very big, a little red.
In an abundance of caution, I went to the urgent care center.
Doing it for the cookies?
So, first thing upon waking up this morning, I logged into Sparkpeople and checked in.
I came upon someone's blog entry that has left me scratc... Read more
Bagging it - for now
So... I've decided that I do not like running in the dark. It's not even the cold that bothers me; once I get moving, I barely feel it. It's the running in the dark that I don't like... and I think that running in the dark in the warmer weathe... Read more
YOU NEED TO HEAR THIS.
One of the things that makes the internet both ridiculous and amazing is the insane amount of information and resources out there for those of us who are really trying to make positive changes in our lives.
It's a lot to sift through. And ... Read more
