wowza

Sooo...this has been the longest I've gone between postings since I've started this here blog. It's also been the longest I've gone without crocheting- I haven't picked up my hooks in about a month!! I think the last time I crocheted was on the plane during my trip to LA. Yipes. I blame it all on my new job- it's sucking all of my precious crocheting time away. Well, can't blame it all on the job (although it is the prime reason).... another contributing factor is that I've been in training for a movie that I may be filming next year. It's a period piece chronicling the plight of the Cherokee Indians in the mid 1700's. I've been hitting the gym pretty hard and even started taking horseback riding lessons. (Other than trail rides here and there, I've not ridden since I was a kid!) So, my days look like this: Get up, go to work, work all day, go to the grocery store, make dinner, work out, go to sleep. Rinse and repeat.

Weekends have been filled with Youth Group stuff at church....and more working out. The really irritating thing is that, even though I'm working out like a mad woman, the scale isn't budging. Argh. Although, the good news is that my body is changing- even my hubby is noticing. :) There's nothing like a slap on the behind followed by an, "Ooh la la!" for motivation, let me tell ya. ;) I think I just need to tweak my eating pattern throughout the day. I think I may not be eating enough, quite honestly. Strange, I know, but if you eat too little while exercising a lot, your body can go into starvation mode and hold on to every calorie, which I think my body is doing right now. It is helpful being a Nutritionist and Personal Trainer for these sort of things; however, it also means that I don't have Jillian Michaels yelling at me to push myself to my limits...I need to keep myself motivated and push myself to work out which isn't always easy. The idea of seeing myself on a 50 foot screen in very little clothing, however, is VERY motivating.

Anyway, just wanted to let y'all know what's been going on in my neck of the woods. I'm crossing my fingers that this movie will go through- I truly am very excited about it! However, if it does, I will most likely have even less time to crochet.....but, we'll cry those tears when/if the time comes....

And now....off to the gym....
