Holy Cannoli (mmm)

The scale has continued to move down as my cold has moved up from my chest & throat to my head, thus making me a disgusting, watery, snot creature with mascara running my's truly lovely. Oh and I should mention my nose is all red and crusty from blowing it wayyy to much, so that just adds to how attractive I'm looking today.

I really avoided temptation yesterday when I was finally thwarted by a cannoli from Veniero's (only one of the best Italian bakeries in all of NYC). How can anyone say no? I tried and I did well until finally around 8pm I gave in and it was soooo worth it! Today I didn't do much better eating wise; I had 1/2 a blueberry muffin, a whole wheat bagel with some cream cheese and two cups of coffee with half & half. Granted it was broken up in the span of 3 hours, in fact I'm still sipping on the coffee at this very moment. The good news is, I'm not only down the original 4 lbs. I had gained over the weekend, I'm also down an extra 2 on top of that for a total of 6 lbs. lost, thus I feel that eating a little unauthorized isn't going to be too detrimental as long as I keep going to the gym (which btw I haven't missed a day yet this week, including Sunday's work-out with Jake.) All this on top of being sick, having auditions, doing hair & make-up at Dicapo Opera, and having to be in early at work everyday this week; I have to say I'm doing very well and I'm proud of myself for sticking with the working out, when I could easily make the excuse that I'm too tired/busy.

I also got an invite to audition for The Ballad of Baby Doe from the Maestro of Chelsea Opera, which is one role I'd LOVE to play and would be idea for me. So I'm very excited about that and now have to learn a couple of arias from that opera to audition with. Thank goodness it's all in English, I'll learn it in no time.

That's about all I have to report at the moment. I definitely plan on eating well the rest of the day and will be hitting the gym hard to burn off that bit of unauthorized eating in the past 24 hours. Have a great day!

Holy Cannoli indeed, Bex! :-) (One of my favorite sayings BTW.) You're doing awesome! It's great that you're doing so well, and still working out, with all the sickness and busy-ness and whatsnot. (Yeah, that was a deliberate type, I feel your sinus pain!) I am sorry that you're feeling so crappy though, that totally sucks.

But give yourself a big pat on the back from me, you're rocking the whole healthy lifestyle thing. :-)
