I've been doing a lot of that lately. Examining my intent for doing things, making sure that I am doing what I really want to be doing for the long-term, and for the right reasons. Been scrutinizing my behavior and thoughts and how well they are aligned with my goals and dreams. I've come a long way in changing my life, but boy, do I have a long way to go!
Today I went to the actor's network that I'm involved in to hear from an acting coach. I slept about 90 minutes before I went over there, and probably shouldn't've napped at all, because I was incredibly tired going over there. And when I parked my car I hit the rim against the curb and bent the rim enough to make me wonder if I would have a flat tire by the time I got out of the meeting. So far it seems fine, but I'm still checking it every time I head for the car. Fortunately, my car is 10 years old and the paint is fading and it generally doesn't look like much of anything, so I don't care if the rim is bent unless it is MORE than cosmetic damage.
The coach was interesting to listen to. He seems to have a lot in common with my current acting coach, so there doesn't seem to be much point in changing coaches, though I might take his 8 week class just to jump start myself and get really jazzed about acting again. I'm always excited about it when I'm doing it, but I haven't gotten to play any parts lately, so an extra boost would be a good thing.
I've been pretty good lately about exercising, even if I haven't been posting about it. I haven't been to the gym in weeks (I hate this gym - I need to join my old one as soon as I get my tax refund, because I loved it there), but I have been doing Pilates and yoga at least every other day, and I'm feeling good about what I'm doing. I do want to get back to the hated gym in the next few weeks before I join my old one again - the elliptical machines are calling to me!
I'm really enjoying my juicer! The extra time it takes to clean it is far offset by the decreased chopping to get the food into the juicer. I love that I chose one with a large opening! Tonight I juiced two ruby red grapefruits and got roughly 30 ounces of juice out of them, and it is delicious. It was a breeze to peel the grapefruit and pull them apart into a few sections rather than section out the whole thing like i used to have to do with my old juicer. Yesterday I made a beet, carrot, celery juice. Yum.
On tap for today is a massage (haven't had one in a while!), sleep, and meet a friend for drinks in the evening. I haven't seen Joseph in probably at least a year, even though we both live in LA. I've known him for probably 6 years, and we used to get together regularly with a group of people. The last couple of years, we've gotten together sporadically. It is always good to see him, and we always enjoy our time together, but we just can't manage to meet up more often. I'm very much looking forward to it.
- Almost forgot to mention that I realized the other day that I'm now having reactions to my favorite chicken/turkey pesto sausages from Trader Joe's. I happened to have one by itself the other night, and nearly choked from the pepper in it. I can usually get away with a little black pepper in something like that, but won't be having those sausages anymore. I also had some of my 'usual' reaction - coughing, sniffling response to stuff I shouldn't be eating. So no more sausages for me. : (
