Check-in on a few things and pics of the new bike

Thursday, April 08, 2010

Okay, couple things just want to catch you all up on around here.

Turns out, yes, I do have a sinus infection. Started antibiotics yesterday so hopefully this deep fatigue will pass. It's good to know what is causing this. However, wow, try doing dance turns across a stage with a sinus infection throwing your balance just slightly off kilter....LOL...not to mention, this is NOT the time to attempt to learn to do a handstand. Wow, talk about altered states of reality when you are upright again.

Here's a pic a friend of mine just sent me from my first big biking adventure this past Saturday.

And here's a publicity still for the new show I'm in The Brother's O'Toole. For more info on that go look at my Facebook page (Cassandra Kelly in Rochester NY) Email me if you have any difficulties finding me there.

Lastly, I'm really recognizing the need to do better at listening to my body in regards to cardio and physically active things. I am trying, but still, when I'm working and moving, I get this rush of endorphins -- I'm telling you if everyone got as high off being active as I do, no one would ever sit still until they collapsed, LOL-- but the drawback is the signals my body manages to get through that "HEY! We're reaching a limit!" are so subtle that I just miss them. Until I hit the wall or until the next day, like today, when I suddenly feel like my body is a bag of wet cement. This might not sound so bad, since I do okay with meeting goals and such, however, I'd like to learn consistency, doing just enough every day, or even most days, instead of going whole-hog wild one or two days then spending a whole day or two in recovery.

So I'm discovering and beginning to set the terms and goals of my maintenance stage as I learn this new place and find what works for me here.

Okay, off to run lines and do a little pilates to warm up my body for blocking tonight (that's theater speak for when we add the movement, characterization and positions on the stage that go along with the words we speak.) God I love this life, I can't tell you. Performing on stage has always been the one place I truly feel at home. It never stops being scary, but that's part of the great thrill. I'm so thrilled to be getting this aspect of my life back, and meeting so many new and wonderful people and friends, because I have to confidence in myself to be back where I belong. I love living healthy!

    I call it my berzerker heritage.... I go until I'm broken if I'm not working hard at listening to my body.
    Sigh.
    Breathe.

    Last time I was on stage to do anything (about 40 plus years ago), I peed in my pants in front of the whole class. I'll leave the stage to you emoticon

    Happy Thursday!
