I woke up at 6:55 pm tonight. Not good, since I was supposed to be in acting class by 7. I made it by 7:25, though, which worked out fine. Class was just getting started, so I didn't miss anything. I felt a little discombobulated, but settled down as we did more exercises. I had fun with some character work tonight, and managed to do one thing better than I've ever done it before in the nearly two years I've been studying with this acting coach. So I feel like I finally broke through something there.
I also did my monologue tonight, and my coach loved it. Thinks it's a great monologue for me (it isa good one for me, even though- or maybe BECAUSE it is such a stretch for me). Got some great feedback on how to continue to work it to make it more real and more emotional.
We also did a quick scene from "The Spitfire Grill", which I didn't remember seeing until my coach gave us the backstory on it. It's a powerful scene, and we're supposed to bring it back memorized next week. I also have to bring back my monologue. Lots to do this week to work on this stuff!
Men. Don't know what the latest is with the man I've had three dates with, but I'm going to have to stop mentioning them here, because it seems that the minute I say something, they disappear! We'll see if that's the case, but it's looking that way so far. I can't complain, though, at least I'm not spending 6 months or more with the wrong guy now - it might be three dates, two dates, a phone call, etc., but I'd rather know they are the wrong man sooner rather than later! I do have a brunch date lined up for this weekend, another eharmony match.
I've been really paying attention to what is giving me any kind of reaction, and trying to avoid it if I notice anything after eating it. Soy yogurt gave me a mild reaction, but only one particular brand, so I don't think it is the soy itself, but something in that brand.... Noticed this tonight during a break in class when I wolfed down some almonds, blueberries, bananas, and yogurt all mixed up together. It might have been the almonds, but I think it was the yogurt, since I had almonds earlier in the day and didn't have any noticeable reactions.
I ate a banana and a bunch of cherries and some almonds when I got home from work yesterday, and then ate a piece of spelt toast with almond butter on it.
I had no time to cook for work tonight since I got up late, and only had time to fry and egg and eat it off a piece of toast before heading out the door to work. I threw together some pineapple juice and egg protein powder for a shake lunch, and tossed my spelt bread and almond butter in my bag, too. I've also got more of my yogurt and fruit and nut mix, and I'll try to narrow down the reaction and see if it really is the yogurt or those almonds.
I walked my mile last night, and did a few stretches once I got home yesterday morning. Tonight I'll walk another mile or so, and tomorrow evening will probably do my first real yoga workout in over three weeks because of my neck injury. I'm still not 100%, and won't be doing any shoulderstands anytime soon, but can do most everything else.
The weekend should be good. I'm going to go hear a friend's band play Friday night - I've been trying to go see them play for months, and kept having things come up. So tomorrow I'll FINALLY get to see them. Saturday I think I might spend the day at the movies, or I'll rent a few movies. Sunday is supposed to be brunch, and then I have to go to a film festival in the afternoon, and I HAVE to go. I was in TWO of the films they're showing! These were both filmed over a year ago, and they are finally finished, so I'll be excited to see the finished products.
