So I'm doing pretty good with the goal to tone up everything that jiggles. In fact after my little boxing work-out with Jake (the awesome personal trainer boyfriend) last night, I can officially say, "Ow, I'm sore." The good side is that I'm feeling strong, the bad side is that after the week of working-out pretty regularly and efficiently, I'm showing a 4 lb. gain. I realize this is temporary, but boy does it stink! I hate seeing the numbers go up on the scale when I'm doing good things for the bod. It's not like I sat and ate cheeseburgers with fries and a milkshake all weekend long (or at all for that matter, but that does sound pretty yummy...sorry). I actually ate pretty well and not massive amounts either...meh! That's ok, I'm gonna stick with my getting lean goal, and I know the scale will go the other direction eventually. I've got to persevere through this as with anything else in life: I will continue to eat lean & healthy and I will keep going to the gym and working my butt off!

Tonight I have the audition for the Bronx Opera. Normally I would be looking forward to the opportunity to sing, but I've had a bit of a cold over the weekend and my voice is not quite up to par. I'm not sure what's going to come out of my mouth, but hopefully I'll be able to perform well. I'd love another opportunity to do this show with a different production company. I've really got to stop getting sick! I live and work in the huge germ factory know as NYC and I've gotta step up the vitamins and rest if I'm gonna survive the latest outbreak of viruses & bacteria. Maybe I can reschedule my audition for tomorrow, but who knows how much difference a day will make? Besides it's not very professional of me to do it with less than 24 hours I'll suck it up and go. I'll tell ya tomorrow how it went.

I'm so sorry you're feeling badly again! Winter sucks. :-(

However, I'm very psyched about your workout. You're so right, the gain will pass, and you're going to be so tough and ripped when it's all said and done! :-)

Hope the audition went well...
