It must be the start of a loooong week...  
Halfway through my morning trades, I realized I was approving everything with tomorrow's date - I could've SWORN that today was Wednesday. :P What a disappointment it was to find that I wasn't already in the middle of the week, but instead, only at the beginning! :P

Another reason the week probably feels so long is that I've re-started my "counting every calorie & gram of fat" diet and exercise routine again. :P For those of you who have been reading my journal for a while, you'll remember the REALLY strict diet and exercise plan I was on last summer which amazingly led to Mark & I losing about 20 pounds each... Well, those of you who have joined my journal a little more recently know all too well that with all the traveling and non-healthy eating (not to mention no exercising) that I've been doing (or not doing) lately, I've actually gained back almost 15 of those pounds! :( My goal is to lose them all again before my next trip to LA in July. :P I've done it once before, so I know it's possible, the hardest part is just putting my mind to it - and the first week of a diet always seems to be the hardest... :P

In some wonderful theatre news, Luba Mason (who is a friend of Kevin's and appeared with him in "Ten Commandments") is going to be the next Velma Kelly in the Broadway cast of "Chicago" :) I'm always SO happy to see LA based theatre performers get great roles on Broadway. :) Stephanie Block said it best when she said (at the 2003 Robbys) that LA performers were the best - nowhere could you find people who would be willing to drive 100 miles (sometimes in each direction) to perform at a 99 seater, for very little publicity and very little pay - just because they love the theatre so much. It's the reason I think LA theatre is so special and it's why I admire people like Kevin, Julie, Misty, Nick, Damon, etc... SO much.

And finally, on the "kind of too embarrassed to really mention" side to this entry, I received my tickets to Chad Brannon's event in July in the mail yesterday. I don't watch soaps at all anymore (and haven't for about 4 years now), but I'm going to be in LA to see Kevin in "Guys & Dolls" the same weekend as Chad's event and I thought it might be nice to see some of my old Chad friends there - not to mention Chad himself. I did manage to run in to him in October when I was at "Ten Commandments," but I haven't really seen him since. It should be interesting though since there are a lot of "interesting" fans at those events... Plus gigglets is coordinating it, and it'll be really nice to see Pat there since I haven't seen her since our NYC "Millie" trip in January of LAST year.

I'm off to take a much needed shower and hunt down my fuzzy dog. Hope you all have a nice evening. :D

Even though I think you look great, good luck w/the diet and exercise program, Sheri. :)

Awww, Carrie - you're too kind (but you haven't seen me recently - boy I've really gained weight since I saw you at "My Way"!) :P Thanks for the luck, I'm really going to need it. :D

Yesterday didn't feel like a Tuesday. C'mon FRIDAY!!!! :)

Is there a maximum amount of calories/fat grams you allow each day? Is this a documented diet, or just one you two created that works for you?
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on May 25th, 2005 05:09 pm (UTC)
Shouldn't it be, at least, Thursday by now? :P

I usually try to stay under 1200 calories a day (for me I've found that it works well - but everyone is different...) And the main thing I try to make sure is that the calories that I do consume aren't empty and are full of nutrition. I also follow a strict eating schedule (smaller meals more times a day to not store fat, etc...) I've been following several documented diets, but have (over time) found out the calorie consumption limit that's right for my lifestyle.

Why'd you go and remind me about dieting...I've been so bad since I went on vacation...arghhhhhh....;P
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on May 25th, 2005 05:10 pm (UTC)
I'm sorry! :D Vacations are a time to let the diet go, though and just enjoy! :) My problem was that I was enjoying a little TOO much for a little TOO long! ;)

Good luck Sheri. I am on my own diet/exercise thing too. You are an inspiration to me with your determination and motivation on that diet. :) Thank you!
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on May 25th, 2005 05:12 pm (UTC)
Yay for your exercise and diet routine! :D And thanks for the kind comments, but they're really undeserving... Thank YOU for all your support last year - it was because of all of you that I was even able to stay on that diet! *HUGS*

They are so NOT undeserving. You deserve all the kind, supportive comments in the world.

That happened to me last week. I kept thinking it was Thursday, when it was really Tuesday. And while I've kept my days straight this week, I keep wishing for Friday to get here really fast!

Good luck with the diet! I hate diets. I fail miserably at them - no will power whatsoever. So I'm sticking to just exercise right now. I figure it's a good start and may motivate me to do other things.
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on May 26th, 2005 08:54 am (UTC)
I hate when that happens. Like now, for example, it's almost Thursday, but I think it should be the weekend. ;)

I'm not a fan of diets either... And I don't really like the word "diet" at all - I always try to tell people that I'm "eating healthier", it somehow doesn't make me feel so deprived. ;)
defygravity73 on May 27th, 2005 05:54 pm (UTC)
I think next week is going to be a mess for me too, with the short week thanks to Memorial Day.

*sigh* If only "eating healthier" included chocolate. =)

Awww thanks, Kristen! :D And that's so great that you've been so successful with your diet / exercise plan! :D What an inspiration you are! :) The exercise video I'm currently using is called "Slim in 6" - I really like it! :D

Yes, I can imagine your disappointment. Hope you at least have not too much to do at work. Sometimes I wish I could be there where just is the weekend but then, it probably would be too much traveling. ;)

Good luck with the diet - I'm sure you can do it.

Please take care, Sheri. *Hugs* :)

Somehow this week feels extraordinarily long. :P Thankfully tomorrow is Thursday and the weekend isn't TOO far off. :)

Thanks for your supportive comments about the diet. :) The first couple of weeks are the hardest to adjust (then after that it usually isn't so bad...)

Hope you have a nice weekend! :) *HUGS* to you and the (belated) birthday girl Micki! :D

I wish it was the 6th of June already. LOL. I know what you mean by thinking it is later in the week. :)

Good luck and best wishes for starting your routine again.

Please forgive me if I've missed something important in one of your entries, but what happens on June 6th?

Thanks for your supportive comments about the diet/exercise plan, Laura. :) Hopefully I'll be able to lose those pounds again! :) I've only had them for a little while, they can't be that attached to me. ;)
