Day 21: January 29th, 2012 = COMPLETE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cardio was = 5K on Treadmill Running & Walking

Dance of the Day was = “Beautiful” by Akon

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

Anything to Note =

I wanted to take it easy today but somehow I ran more than I wanted to. My last meeting was right near Planet Fitness so how could I not go!! Just for my free tootsie rolls haha! I decided to do a 5K but wanted to run and walk it slowly, and not what I ended up doing. The stupid treadmill had the 5K pre-programmed with levels so I chose Level One thinking it would be slow, but the speed was 6.0! I wanted to walk it and then do some light jogging but it kept re-setting my speed back to 6.0. It was super annoying especially as I was writing some texts and stuff and it would re-set from my walking to that higher speed and it would suddenly speed up! That could have been a serious disaster scene! I did want to run and walk equally but I ended up giving into the 6.0 and ran more….ugh. I know, I know….I am also crazy so whenever I say I will take it slowly I never do. I could have run the whole time, but I fought against it, so step by step I am getting better….right??

I was emotional today off and on. It was odd as I was dancing to my song of the day and crying at the same time. It got to me and it was strange to dance and cry at the same time, and fight through it all. A very weird experience.

I did lighten my mood after though with my video upload – it’s a character I love to do and would love to do more and more of her. I must pursue her. There was talk once to do a whole play around a more exaggerated version of her, but I put her in a reality show in this upload today and it fit very well! So, maybe a webseries or reality show upload is in the future perhaps 🙂

 

 


365 ONE: week one done and 51 to go!!!

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!

Ugh.

 

 


365 ONE: day six of challenge

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!!
