I still find it funny when I have to explain my whole 365 to people! It cracks me up as it’s now become 12 criteria with the addition of no alcohol – which then leads me to explaining I was on a detox for the first week of just fruit and veg, which then leads me to say:

“….I started this 365 challenge and then 9 days later I found out I was pregnant!”

Which is super crazy!

I then get asked though why I didn’t just stop then and there when I found out I was pregnant….which is a valid question…but I didn’t know what was going on back then (I still don’t!!) – but my mind was all on getting through and I was so busy and had so much to think about, and a week retreat upstate with the theatre company  I was in rehearsals with….and I don’t know, 365 just kept on going.

I guess I had bigger things to think about.

And, despite how harsh this sounds, my initial reaction to finding out I was pregnant was a big “No!” so I didn’t know what I was going to do to be honest – this was all a shock and not planned, and interfered with the two weddings and honeymoon we had ahead of us with the due date falling on the exact date of when the Greek wedding was supposed to be….so I was thrown.

I guess I didn’t know then what the future held. I had to figure out whether I was going to move forward with the pregnancy or not first. And the days ticked by, meaning the 365 challenge kept going in the meantime, and then I got stuck as the days added up and up and up (which granted was not to a very big number) but it felt accomplished and something I couldn’t imagine quitting or starting again from scratch.

And we all know I am friggin’ insane!

It’s funny as when I decided to start this 365 challenge this year I thought about how much of a challenge it would be to have two weddings and then a honeymoon, and how interesting that would be for people reading along – like that of a reality TV show.

I had NO idea that there would be a giant twist in the show!!! 🙂

And now how can I stop?? I’m on day 177!!!!!

But believe me when I say that there have been moments where I really wish I didn’t have to do this anymore! Especially since I am so busy and so now 365 has ended up being something I have to do when I get home late and that’s the last thing I want to do!

I’m soooooooo tired my right eye won’t stop twitching!!

Yesterday was a crazy day!!!

I was up from 5.30am until past 1am so today I am super super tired and not feeling the greatest but have to get through balancing the drama we have with a client tenant to prevent him from being homeless when he arrives Friday, two shows and then the strike, and again its like 100 degrees outside!!

I was so busy with running to see apartments and talk with two brokers in between tech and such yesterday to deal with the drama, and getting props and such that I know I pushed myself a bit, forgetting the little one inside. Which I later felt guilty about.

I stupidly ran from getting some props back to the theatre at one point and then when I got there I felt a little pain and it made me feel so guilty. I realized I need to stop doing things like that. And now stupid me is worried – always thinking the worst of course!

But I’ve got so much going on though that I have to do – I can’t pass it off to anyone else so I just have to remember my limits, or that I even HAVE limits would be a start!

It kind of takes my breath away when thinking of everything I have to do before I hopefully leave but I need to keep the little one as my constant!

Not much today actually.

I waited for the mail to see how it would dictate my day and weekend. And….still nothing. Still no green card 😦

So, since I was still here then I felt guilty so had to attend my “If-I-am-still-here” plans I had tentatively made in case I was. But I got to see my good friend from the UK again, and go to my friend’s birthday and see others there – so there was a silver lining to being here 🙂

It just feels weird.

You know what else feels weird? That it’s my birthday next week!!! I thought it was in two weeks or something!!!! I wasn’t supposed to be here for it so I guess I just blanked out what date it is and how that is in relation to when my birthday is.

Or it’s a part of my denial….of everything!

I like how I explained to Stuart in the cab home that I had no clue it was my birthday next week, just forgot it was coming up so soon, and Stuart said:

“You’ll only be 31 years young” – implying that the age is why I have a problem and forgot it. And I thought about it. Yeah, 31 I guess is a little ugh but…

“I think I have bigger things to worry about!” I said. Which is TRUE!!!!!!!!

SO TRUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OY-VEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anything to Note =

I needed to get things done in the office today as yesterday was a disaster with getting home after midnight and not being done with my 365!!

So I have done it before, done my dance of the day in my office – had some people pass, but today was crazy!! Soooo many people passed!! And there was people visiting people next to me, and others coming to say hello! Did they all get a memo to come and interrupt the girl called Zoe who is trying to sneakily dance her 365 criteria in her office??!!!

I’m stupid though as I chose a super long song! Why oh why! So there was a lot of stoping and pretending to be doing work!!

This of course inspired my video upload 🙂


365 ONE: day 107…Busy Bee-tlejuice

Surprise surprise – busy day!! Had work, where I was training two people, then rehearsal, then a presentation at The Actors Studio, then a production meeting for a project I’m co-producing  but also was cast in as an understudy for one of the celebrity roles, and then trivia, where I had planned to leave early, but just got home now! NON-STOP!!!

Well, I was supposed to have left tonight “on a jet plane” or tomorrow morning at least, but still a-waiting on me green card argh (said of course in Pirate language!!…not sure why…wow, I must be super tired!) Apparently I still have 19 official days left in which they can still send it to me before we can have an investigation. So it’s still a waiting game. I only have until May 7th otherwise I don’t have a break until sometime in June with the projects I am involved with 😦

I’m exhausted 😦 It has been non-stop since before the summer last year with the wedding planning, wedding, plays and projects, and then not being able to leave the country…

Caribbean anyone?

Anyone???????

Now?????????????????


365 ONE: day 60…dance it off!

Cardio was = Walking

Dance of the Day was = “The Coke Man” by Da Boy Tommy

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

Now it seems that whenever I put on a techno song that is not that well-known or not my favourite or not a hit, my dance becomes an aerobic workout! I just can’t dance normally to them…I try! I try to slow it down and “dance” to it but it takes over! I am ruled by the beat haha!

It is the kind of music that I play at the gym (when I go to the gym) so I do associate it with lots of bouncing and hardcore movement…but I think it also becomes aerobic from my guilt of always walking as my cardio, but in busy times it seems it’s all I can do right now.

Walk it off!

Then.

Dance it off!

Not really.

No.

I had a hard day today.

Dealing with some family news so been pretty preoccupied mentally today. Wasn’t in the mood for any of my 365 criteria so it made it hard. Kind of numb. Really tired. Not really in the mood to write right now either.

Sorry.

Hard day.
