Day 7: January 15th, 2012 = COMPLETE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I SURVIVED ONE WEEK ON MY 365 CHALLENGE….and that sounds amazing and deserving of a t-shirt…until you hear the fact there are 51 to go! HOLY COW! FIFTY-ONE! That’s a heck more hell to go through, boo 😦 Boo. And another big boo 😦 😦
Cardio today was = Speed Walking/Loom Movement Training
Dance of the Day was = “When Love Takes Over (Feat. Kelly Rowland)” by David Guetta
Improvised Acting Video I uploaded to my other blog, that I to refer to as = “Push More”
Anything to Note =
Today was friggin’ FREEZING!! Why I decided to do speed walking today as part of my cardio meant I had to trek out to the far west side of Manhattan for rehearsal and back, trying to push forward with the frostbite and wind eating my face off!! I tend to walk to rehearsals for Loom on the days I have it as its way faster than taking a million trains. It’s just easier to weave and zig zag down – and I am an excellent NYC walker if I say so myself…I walk everywhere! But, my legs were completely numb today!!!
I got let out of my first rehearsal early today and had a bit of time before my other rehearsal so I decided to go to the office to do some work and also do some 365 criteria. I walked in though to someone also in the office on a sunday annoyingly so my plans had to change a little. There is a little room before you enter into the women’s bathroom that has a large full size mirror and couch and so many criteria were completed there! Including my dance of the day – which was AMAZING!! I got to do it in front of the mirror with my ipod as high it could go since no one was around and that was super super fun! I have to say that I do look like a crazy person when dancing! Like I am on some super energetic crack drug!! I also held my breath so I could hear as much of the music as possible I guess as was super out of breath when done haha!!
(Do you notice how many times I used the word “super”….something must be super wrong with me today!) 🙂
Methinks there should be an office rave in this small bathroom! How many people can you fit in the little room? Not a joke – let’s break a Guinness record and try it! Speaking of that, I should look up and see if I can get a Guinness record for any of the things I will be completing for a year…if I make it! I always wanted a record!
So….it’s been a week also of fruit and veg, and I said I would do only a week of this, and so, to keep my word, tomorrow I get to continue the criteria of eating healthy – and I am trying super hard to resist the urge to do a week of something else….in my past I have done odd things like a week of just sushi, a week of just cereal, and my favourite….a whole week of just tasti-de-lite!! I LOVED IT!!
Nope, I’m going to try to do it properly as I have 51 weeks to go so I can’t hurt my chances of not making it all the way!!
I do think I deserve a pat on the back though for making it through a whole week! Don’t I? It’s been tough and I’ve been grouchy, but I feel strong and ready to take on another week!
Day 6: January 14th, 2012 = COMPLETE!!!!!!!!!!!
Cardio was = Elliptical
Dance of the Day was = “Let me Think About It” by Ida Corr vs. Fedde Le Grand
Improvised Acting Video I uploaded to my other blog was what I like to refer to as = “Gym Rip”
Anything to Note =
Cardio today was actually at the gym – that thing called the gym that I haven’t been to in a looooong time! It’s a good thing that it’s only $10 a month as I feel less guilty. Thank you Planet Fitness. I managed to squeeze in some elliptical between conflicts today and boy am I out of shape – it was super hard! And I was on an easy level. I tell you if I hadn’t added the whole “Healthy” criteria to this 365 Challenge I would have been at that elliptical machine like the old crazy days where I wouldn’t leave the gym until I burned off 1,500 calories! Yup, I even went through a time where I had to call my good friend to come get me as I was puking in the gym shower due to my extreme-ness. That was an ultimate low-point, and I have not repeated that since, or got that low. But, to be honest, I have those urges, that desire still is there, that masochistic extreme addiction….I feel it all the time. Hence the food and veg week I am on right now, and believe me that’s wild. Since tomorrow is the end of the fruit/veg thing, I decided to have a little oil today with some veg – or I allowed it to be there – going against my instincts – but trying to be “normal”…whatever that is! I guess, better – I am trying to be better and lead a healthy lifestyle without all the crazy. This 365 Challenge is extreme enough without adding more to it!!
I also had some natural fruit gummies – also was hard to succumb to but I need to ease my body back to eating healthy so a bit here and there today and tomorrow should do it. Although I feel bad. This is how the whole crazy dieting starts though – I feel bad about myself and punishment is needed – although I don’t see it that way, but that’s what it sometimes feels like if honesty is underlying here. If I could eat nothing. Literally NOTHING, I would. And you want to know a secret….I have actually tried to eat nothing. I get to a faint state where I can’t take it any longer and give in…thank god!!!! But l admit that I have tried. I know it’s not good for me but now and again I get the extreme girl in me – the real extreme girl. I lost a lot of weight this past year because I lost my appetite – stress and an upcoming marriage would do that to anyone though! 365 will help me – if I can keep it up!! Day six! Tomorrow will be a whole week!
One good thing today, I got to dance the way I love to – in minimal lighting, high volume and in front of a mirror!!! And out came my secret techno cage dancer 🙂 LOVE!!! My body was a little tired but I pushed through. All I needed was a black light and white clothing on 🙂 I am soooooo European hahaha!!
