Did you miss me?

*sniff sniff* You probably didn't even notice I was gone...that's ok...I know I've been neglectful.

So I'm still trying to hold strong to the healthy side of life...but life is not getting any easier. Ugh...at least I still have a job, good thing I didn't leave when I had those other offers..."last man hired, first man fired".

The singing is going well, and I just finished doing "Martha" at The Liederkranz, and I'm now learning my music for Die Fledermaus and Rigoletto...life is busy but good. I've been off and on of my eating and working-out lately and I'm trying to honestly get back into it, but boy have I been feeling tired and distracted. I'm still only averaging about 5-6 hours of sleep and I haven't really found a resolution for that. Perhaps up my vitamins to help balance the lack of rest? NO...I've just got to schedule it into my day like I would any other important activity!

I was whining to MizFit earlier about how every time I start up in the gym again, I get sick within the next week or two...and then I have to decide to either push through or lay back and recover. I can't afford to get terribly sick or I can't keep singing...it's a delicate balance...maybe that's why opera singers get thick after a while?...eh who knows, but my life and health depend on getting and staying in shape...and if I'm gonna do it, I'm gonna REALLY do it. I want to be in mad, sick shape. I'm tired of feeling a bit doey or always looking a bit plump...I can weigh 135 but still be squishy in the middle, and that's NOT ok! I want to be a LEAN, MEAN, SINGIN' MACHINE! I think that's my new motto / mantra...I'm gonna make it happen...law of attraction baby! Ok, now I'm just rambling.

Alright kids...I'm off to an event, but I'll try to post more tomorrow.

Have a great day!
