Today takes the sweat medal!!!!!!!!!!

I thought it was supposed to actually die down today, but nope!

I had to be up early as driving to Lake Placid today for our friend’s wedding tomorrow, and had to go to work first, so of course the 365 had to be done early. I was so hot so I took a shower this morning as I was also so tired so thought it would be a good wake-up. It was so hot here that the electricity was going in and out all, night. Our crappy air conditioner would be on and then you could hear it fade down and pumping lower, then surge suddenly back up! And this air conditioner already has trouble cooling down the room the poor little old thing!

Anyway, that was annoying so naturally didn’t get much sleep – but do I ever???? Ugh.

So I was super hot when I got up and took a cold shower – which was nice while it lasted! But then I had to rub belly oil on and moisturizer so my half hour 365 walk after to the subway this morning was disgusting!!

I was talking to my dad as I walked and when I pulled the phone away there was a thick layer of white on my screen from where the moisturizer had rubbed off my face!! Nasty!!

Hopefully up at Lake Placid its cooler…..please!!

This summer is just soooooo hot! Thank god my Green Card got approved (got the approval notices in the mail last night so its official!!!!) so I can hopefully be in a less hot and less friggin’ humid environment. The UK seems to fit that bill – although trust my luck and they have a super hot and humid summer or something this year!!!

This here is NOT preggo weather!

I’ve been offered a seat a few times on the subway now – preggo alert! Especially in this hot weather where I also can’t wear my usual layers to cover the bubbling bump 🙂 And as much as I would love to sit down I can’t, or rather I’m not allowed. But I’m starting to feel bad actually. I say

“No, thank you.”

And I see their faces look at me as if I’m crazy or mad or something, as most of them repeat with,

“Are you sure??”

And then I feel guilty as I feel like they are thinking I’m being a bad mother by not resting!!!



365 ONE: day 16 in Tivoli NY

Day 16: January 24th, 2012 = COMPLETE!!!!

Cardio was = Loom Movement Residency

Dance of the Day was = “Rehab” by Amy Winehouse

Improvised Acting Video I uploaded to my other blog = “Hotel Sausage”

Anything to Note =

We drove up to Tivoli in upstate NY for a residency up here with Loom Ensemble, so after we arrived and were settling in our rooms, we had a quick break for “lunchtime” and so I was eating sausages and turned the ipod on to video and then the improv happened!! I also decided to sneak in my dance too so turned my music on shuffle and started to dance in front of the long mirror and the bathroom and danced!!

I have a limited time to upload this blog as now on “dinner break” so this will be short but I managed to get it all in. I do feel a little like my cardio wasnt as its full potential today but its a long day tomorrow so I need to rest for that.

So more tomorrow!!!! I guess whats important is I got it done haha!! And that I can accomplish this from out of town 🙂

365 ONE: day 5 and still alive!!

Day 5: January 13th, 2012 = COMPLETE!!!!!!!!!!

Dance of the Day was = “Alors on Danse” by Stromae

Improvised Acting Video I uploaded to my other blog was something I like to refer to as = “Bathroom Joke”

Anything to Note =

This non-sleeping thing is just worse than my normal non-sleeping problem I have. So any worse is just like NO SLEEP! It’s really starting to get me down with such early mornings and such long days….and FRUIT and VEG still. Well, I am hoping to be done with the fruit and veg sunday as that will be a whole week of detox, and I need to really adhere to my “Eat Healthy” criteria as I know this is not healthy. But do you really want to know the truth? I could probably go on and on and on and on with fruit and veg. Those that know me know I could. I really believe that…but NO! I. Will. Stop. That is why its a criteria to Eat Healthy as it’s a challenge for me. Backwards, I know!


Inserting these criteria in my day is just funny really! It would make for a good reality tv series! Not to say that my life is just so tv-worthy!! No, what I mean is from the outside eye some of my daily moments I think would make some good crap tv!

Speaking of that, I would love a videographer or camera-man/woman to help with my acting improvs I’m filming. I decided on the bathroom this time for my upload and was almost caught! I just feel a little limited…but I will persevere – forgot to ask at the Apple store when I was there today about that, I just realized! Boo! I was going to ask them about an ipod touch remote and didn’t. Ugh. Will have to go back.

Was late home tonight so had the dance to still do – picked one so that my cousin visiting from Australia and my hus*and (still have a hard time saying that out loud!!) could perhaps join along with me as I danced in the living room…but nope! They both sat and played on their computers/phones!! I saw a few finger motions – what a bunch of Lazy Susans!!!!
