Wahoo! So, Mr. Eric proposed, I accepted, and now wedding planning is in full swing - and one of my biggest priorities is to get back in shape in time to walk down the aisle... which, at present, is a problem. ..... Since the ex... Read more

I'm trying to get back on track, though it's really really difficult. After a year of hard, slaving work, to have a few months of relaxing my habits felt awesome, and though I've only gained 3 pounds in 4 months I know it's a slippery slope and ... Read more

Alright - sigh - It's time to get back on track. Clearly, I've been slipping lately, so it's time to get back in the game and start staying within my calories again and working out with some regularity. SO - My goal is to stay within my cal... Read more

Though I'm eating in maintenance range and working out regularly (if way less intensely than I used to) my motivation for working as hard at this as I used to is gone. It's official. I can't make myself run. All I can remember is how hard it was... Read more

Well, Mondays workout felt great and I almost managed to stay in my calories (seriously, I went over by 20? Geez.) so I'm going to do the same workout again today! Fun, right? I loaded my ipod with all the new music I scored this weekend at Pitc... Read more

After a few weeks of slacking, due to general business (which begin to end starting in September, after my two shows close and I begin a for-real theatrical hiatus) I need to get back to working out regularly. SO - Today, I again begin The ... Read more

Well, in addition to the whole "I have to wear a bikini in September on the beach" deal, now I have added motivation. My dear friend Aleisha is getting married, and I'm to be a bridesmaid. Holler. I've been eating really well and working ou... Read more

I always feel like I'm whining when I blog here... Le sigh. I'm so overwhelmed by life at present. We're subleasing my current apartment to subleasers who may or may not have good enough credit to take the place (which we didn't know ... Read more

Despite the fact that we spent around 5 hours yesterday moving, Eric and I still hauled our tired butts out of bed this morning and down to the Lincoln Park Zoo to take part in the annual United Run for the Zoo - and though we had made peace wit... Read more

My June resolution is to be nicer to myself, at least for a month. I'm not perfect, and can't always reach my calorie burned goals, especially when I set them way high. This week, for example, I could only work out on my lunch breaks... Read more

So, upon further research, I am about to embark on what will be perhaps the busiest 9 weeks of my life. I'm directing a show, and acting in another, and in a staged reading of another. My boyfriend is in a different show, and directing... Read more
Hating Today
Monday, June 01, 2009      6 comments

Today blows. Seriously, hard. A. I get up at 6 and leave at 7 to get to work and get everything I HAVE to have done before I'm locked to my desk at 8. After 8, I can't leave the lobby of my company unless I have coverage, and the girl... Read more
Surprised by my own willpower.

Sometimes, my willpower amazes me. Last night after a hard workout and dinner at Noodles and Company (blessed be the Chinese chop salad!) I was craving something sweet. Some dessert of some sort. Eric and I went on a mad quest for somethin... Read more
On one hand, disappointed - on the other, excited?
Wednesday, May 27, 2009      2 comments

In this corner: My feelings of super-bummedness that I didn't score this directing gig I super duper wanted and was super excited about. My proposal, my interview - both were great, but they went with someone else. Booo. In this corner: Ran... Read more
