Here is how things stood as of last post. I had turned down a small but juicy role in a Shakespeare show to keep myself open for one of my dream roles, Barfee in Spelling Bee. That is the kind of all or nothing choice that I struggle to make, but I went in head first this time. Tonight was the callback (#2). I felt really good about my work and on the way home I got the word that I had booked it. After taking such a big risk having it pay off is incredible. Even better was the knowledge that I had gone about it the right way. I want to thank those of you who gave me such great advice in this situation. Some comps are definitely on the way.
With my health I have felt myself getting into a bit of a rut. I haven't been logging my calories the way I should and I have been indulging a bit more than I should. The results I have had recently show few to no ill effects so far, but if I am not careful my good habits could go by the wayside. I have found myself rationalizing my laziness by saying that I am allowing the changes to be more organic and letting them be part of my everyday life. That assumes that at some point I will stop logging calories and staying on top of things, which is the wrong mindset. I need to stay aware because I have shown that I to easily fall into bad habits. I am recommitting now to doing this the right way and working hard from here on.
