365

365 ONE: day 155…Dreamville to Ville BUT Still a Ville

Day 155: June 11th, 2012 = COMPLETE!!!!!

Cardio was = Walking

Dance of the Day was = “Cecilia” by Paul Simon

Improvised Acting Video I uploaded to my other blog was = “Apartment for Stuart to See”

Anything to Note =

I had my first subway tip-toes tunnel experience on the E train today as had to go out in Queens to see some apartments. I was expecting a long tunnel but actually it wasn’t so bad at all. So far then the worst is still the bloomin’ R train!

I went out to parts of Queens I had never been to today in order to pick up keys at one location to an apartment and then to see two apartments that were the next best on my list. So today was my first trip to both Forest Hills and Briarwood! A little exploring 🙂

First stop was Forest Hills to get the keys from a realty office. I got off the subway and entered….DREAMVILLE!! It was amazing!! It was 20 minutes from midtown Manhattan and there I was suddenly walking down green grass paths with countryside road signs and beautiful rows of chalets down the roads! It was dream house after dream house! I’ve never seen anything like it!

I took two photos of two houses but only one would upload so here is a little something of what I am talking about…

This photo doesn’t do it justice! It was incredible!!!!

I have to start playing the lottery as this is truly DREAMVILLE!!

So after a trip down DREAMVILLE to get the keys I had to go out to Briarwood, further out in Queens, to see the two apartments, and it was a little sad after coming from amazing greenery…I got off the subway and was a little disappointed….certainly not DREAMVILLE 😦

BUT…then saw an apartment that was kind of exactly what I have been looking for or had more of what I am looking for at a cheaper rate – which realistically I need to consider as this whole upfront cash downpayment thing is going to be the death of me! AND…I kind of like it actually….more than like really…

I had to take a video of the apartment for Stuart to see as he couldn’t make it – so you can see the upload of it on my other blog 🙂

So now need to think. Really think!


365 ONE: day 53…Aussie Aussie Aussie!

Day 53: March 1st, 2012 = COMPLETE!!!!!

Cardio was = Walking

Dance of the Day was = “Lady Madonna” by The Beatles

Improvised Acting Video I uploaded to my other blog was = “Fast-Talking Broker”

Anything to Note =

It was the first time I crossed over the bridge on the L Train to Williamsburg since I started my 365 Challenge. It wasn’t so bad on the tip-toes. I thought it would be long, but nothing compares to that stupid R Train!! So far that is the worst and longest tip-toe experience. I want to avoid that one! However, haven’t tried them all yet.

Had to show an apartment in Brooklyn to some potential tenants and one of them was Australian. So after he came and left, I had some time before the next appointment and used the Australian as inspiration for my video upload. I became an Aussie fast-talking crazy Real Estate Broker!

I also managed to do my fitness 365 in between appointments too at the apartment, and my dance of the day. I closed myself in the bedroom and pumped out The Beatles to dance to. It was a tribute to my hubby Stuart of course – the biggest Beatles fan ever – I figured I would have to dance at least once to his fav band in this challenge 🙂

I took the bus back from Brooklyn to Queens this time – it was a long ride to not be allowed to sit. And there was traffic. I sooooo wished I could sit down, just for a second. I dream of that day!!


365 ONE: day 27 and I Wanna MMM…

Day 27: February 4th, 2012 = COMPLETE!!!!!

Cardio was = Loom Movement/Wall Squats/Walking

Dance of the Day was = “I Wanna MMM” by The Lawyer

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

Anything to Note =

Firstly, since this is fresh on my mind, please watch the ridiculous music video of my dance of the day song “I Wanna MMM” by The Lawyer!! The song itself is just hilarious for those of you have never heard it before, but we just looked up the video and it is bizarre!! Here…

Stuart had never heard this before although it came out a while ago and of course since it’s a Euro Dance Song it was a big hit in Euro Techno land! It’s also just funny! Stuart actually danced along for the first time, but I believe we were both doing the dance to work on our bowels moving after a huge meal out!! Haha! I Wanna…poop poop poop!! HAHA!! I am still so full that I am delirious!

Going backwards now, since I am crazy after all, I managed to get my fitness criteria in at rehearsal offstage in the scenes I was not in but I felt guilty as I didn’t want to distract or make noises while other people were working on stage…it was a little tedious but I knew we were going to dinner tonight straight after rehearsal so wanted to get it all done – sorry Loom Ensemble if I disturbed you in any way.

Again, on the crazy theme – I didn’t think the Loom movement today was enough so added wall squats when I could and then ended up still not thinking it was enough cardio so added more walking into my day. When is it enough, is what I want to know, since I clearly struggle with that.

I had to take the R train to Astoria tonight as it was closest to the restaurant and holy moly do I not want to take that train again! The tunnel tip-toe requirement was so hard! The tunnel is super long and it goes super slow…I was fumbling around in my boots – I am sure people were wondering why I could not keep still. It was horrible – will be avoiding that if possible!

And to end….I just want to say…I Wanna MMM…do you?
