Wednesday, April 23, 2008      0 comments

Lordy - Opening a show, and dealing with all the madness that ensues is hard work. But I did mostly okay for the past few days - except for Monday, when I had to attend a training session downtown. It was my bad, I didn't have break... Read more

Thursday, April 17, 2008      4 comments

So today is my 100 day anniversary. I use the day I joined sparkpeople as day one - January 8th, 2008. Then, I weighed 186 (gasp!) - Now, I'm 30 pounds lighter at 156, which seems like complete and utter craziness to me. I'm not ne... Read more
Day 99: Why be dizzy?
Wednesday, April 16, 2008      3 comments

I'm doing really well - working out when I can, in rehearsals every night, eating around 1300 calories a day.. so anyone have any clue why occasionally I'm getting dizzy? I'm assuming this is diet related, since I've never gotten dizzy before I ... Read more

I had 3800 calories on my birthday - and 1700 on Saturday - However, breathe, I'm fine with this. It was a time to celebrate. And celebration involves Corona, Pizza, McDonalds, and Cheesecake. I refuse to beat myself up about it - ... Read more

Wednesday, April 09, 2008      0 comments

Work, rehearsal, sleep. Lather, rinse, repeat. We open next week, so right now I live in the underworld. But I'm eating well, and the show is exercise all by itself. (Did I mention Annie kicks my ass in the show? It's great!) So, when it ... Read more

Tuesday, April 01, 2008      1 comments

...Seriously. Since I won't be able to go (ie, won't be able to weigh in) until Saturday, I'm slightly going nuts and convinced I'm gaining back ALL the weight I lost - despite mostly eating healthy/good and being in rehearsals that are fairly p... Read more
