PUPPET ME 365: Smile or Cry or…COFFEE!

365 ONE: day 142…What Friggin’ Time Is It???!!!!

Day 142: May 29th, 2012 = COMPLETE!!!!!

Cardio was = Tech for Show/Running Around/On Feet/Theatre Set-Up for Show

Dance of the Day was = “Kalos Se Vrika” by N Stavento

Improvised Acting Video I uploaded to my other blog was = “Too Bright”

Anything to Note =

Besides the fact that I am writing this at friggin’ 6.15am!!!

Today is tech for the show tonight. I have to take the props in my car and pick up more props on the Upper West Side at 7.30am to be at the Theatre by 8am.

So alarm was set for 6.30am as I had everything prepared last night.

What time did I wake, and then not be able to go back to sleep….5.30am!!!!!!!!


I mean, I am having troubles sleeping anyway, went to bed late getting things sorted out for today, but also because I just can’t seem to go to sleep early anyway, and waking up several times an hour as my “routine” these days in pregnancy….and then on top of all that I have to wake up an HOUR early!!!!

Why does that happen?? Why, when you have to get up super early do you wake before the alarm goes off??!!!

Wasn’t that why the Snooze button was invented??? To ease you to wake up?? For those that just can’t wake up when the alarm goes off?? Why couldn’t that be my scenario this morning???!!!


Super annoying.

And I tried so hard to just get in a comfortable position and fall back asleep – it was a lost cause.

Hence why I am writing my blog this early and did some 365 already. This is going to be a loooooooong day and I won’t be done until at least 11pm or later so have a loooooooong way to go, so I guess it’s good that I am writing this now and did some 365 already. The rest will be done along in the day.

And the best part of what lies ahead is I can’t have any coffee or the amount of coffee I would need to get by today…thanks to no caffeine while pregnant.

Woo Hoo! Let’s see how I make it through the day!!

365 ONE: day 118…And Push And Tequila And Push…

Day 118: May 5th, 2012 = COMPLETE!!!!!

Cardio was = Walking

Dance of the Day was = “Start Me Up” by The Rolling Stones

Improvised Acting Video I uploaded to my other blog was = “Yo Yo Yo”

Anything to Note =

It always amazes me when I explain the 365 criteria which one gets people, as it seems for each person it’s different and sometimes unexpectant.

The “No Sitting on Public Transportation” seems to get to a lot of people – that gets the most common “no way” responses.

The “Tip-Toes in Subway Tunnel” weirds people out in general!!!

But the other day at dinner with some friends, one of my friends was explaining my whole 365 shebang and what really seemed to be her “I could never do that for a whole year” and hardest criteria was the daily “Improvised Acting Video” – which I found surprising as that is the most creative one and she is a very creative person. Now, granted, it can be annoying – I’m not going to lie…when I know I have to get it done and I am at home or at the office, and have to search for something to do in a setting I feel I may have exhausted and is unoriginal as it’s the same ol’ setting…but then it pushes the limit so that’s I guess a good thing. It just threw me as I guess I never thought about that 365 criteria being the hardest of all.

I’m guessing for her, for everyone, it’s the whole commitment for a whole year thing, perhaps? maybe? you think? hmmmm???

It’s funny as it just hit me while talking about plans tonight and how I could drive as I am not drinking obviously, and thus can be the designated driver role for months to come!…but I actually started my 365 back in January with a detox. I did a just fruit and veg detox with no coffee or alcohol and THEN I found out I was pregnant……..so on my 365 I believe (and I will have to officially go back and check this) that I have had no coffee or alcohol at all! Which will mean that it will take me to at least September, so why not continue on for the whole challenge if it is indeed true????

Methinks I may want a drink and some coffee after the whole 9 months shenanigans and the whole friggin’ labour!!!!!!!!!!!! A shot of tequila to help with the birthing I think is only fair!!!!!!! 🙂
