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

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.

Follow Up on My H.E.A.
Still feeling pretty ill today and my voice is pretty exhausted. I had to e-mail my contact for the choir audition because there was just no way I’d be able to get through two classical pieces and not do serious damage to my voice. On my way hom... Read more
Are YOU Armed?
I suffer from emotional eating. Plain and simple. There are days when I’m not bothered at all, and days where I literally have to go to bed early because the urge to eat is so intense. Although my coping mechanisms for stress, etc have greatly i... Read more

Who Is Giving Up? NOT THIS GIRL!
This blog is more for me than anyone else. Maintenance is a completely different beast SparkFriends, but it's a good one to try to get a handle on. I remain in my weight loss range of 185-189, and I am beyond proud of that. I have no doubt that ... Read more
