FITNESS BLOG: WEEK SIX & SEVEN

Sorry guys for not posting last week!!  I’ve had so much stuff going on that it’s been pretty tough to keep up.  Like I’ve said before, sometimes life gets in the way! I had premiere’s for HOLLISTON and HATCHET 3, which are both projects that I’m in, then last week was E3.  In case you aren’t familiar, E3 is a huge electronics and gaming convention. It was really great to get to see and demo all the new games that are coming out.  Hopefully, I actually have time to play a couple of them in the future:)  With the Team Unicorn Adult Swim show going to pilot, I have a feeling my spare time is going to be cut down quite a bit.  I’m a gamer, who doesn’t have time to game…go figure, lol.  However, it will be good to be back to being busy with the show, I constantly need to have an creative outlet or I start to feel crazy!

Clare and I ran into Alicia Marie and Adrianne Curry at E3…I feel so little compared to those beautiful amazons!  Plus, I think this is probably the most gorgeous picture of Adrianne I’ve ever seen;)

So over the past two weeks, I have to be honest, I haven’t really been able to stay on track as far as working out consistently is concerned.  Last week, I only had time to work out three times opposed to my goal of six.  It sucks, but I just have to accept the fact that sometimes there are other things that are going to take priority over working out.  Still, I’m really happy that I managed to make it as much as I did  considering how busy I was.  Admittedly, a lot of me being “busy” was me hanging out with friends.  Baseball games, birthday parties, premieres, camping, etc.  If you know me personally, and you’re reading this, you know that I don’t usually make having fun a priority.  I’m the type of person to reply NO to most Facebook invites, usually make it a rule to “Irish exit” from a party forty minutes in, and would rather spend my Friday nights watching old sci-fi shows or cartoons on Netflix while cuddling with my kitties and pup than going to the club with my girlfriends.  Basically, I’m a boring cat lady…glamorous, I know.  Sorry, If I shattered the illusion of an exciting Hollywood life for you guys!  I’m starting to think that maybe the fitness regimen I’m on has something to do with it…that and of course the company of amazing friends;)  I just have so much more energy than I usually do that going out doesn’t feel like such a chore like it used to.  Same with my sleep schedule.  Usually, I have to have eight hours of sleep to feel functional the next day.  I’ve always been so jealous of those people that are totally fine with six hours of sleep, because for me six hours of sleep (or less) will basically ruin my day.  It actually physically makes me sick.  Imagine morning sickness without an alien baby growing in your stomach…not fun!…not that having an alien baby baking in your oven would be fun either, but you get my meaning.  Strangely, I’m finding that recently my body doesn’t want eight hours of sleep anymore, it wants less, but I wake up feeling amazing…SO WEIRD!  Of course, my first instinct was to fight it.  “Noooo body, you NEED eight hours of sleep!  Why aren’t you sleeping?!?  Why you so kray???”  However, now I’m finally starting to accept the fact that I just don’t need as much sleep anymore.  SO AWESOME!  What a great side effect of getting into shape:)

This weeks meal prep!  Throwing everything on the grill is a really great way to cook super fast!

Over the past couple weeks, I ran into a few of you who have been reading this blog.  Really blessed to have your support, guys!  I  started out writing this to keep myself on track with my goals and to share the process, but I’m super excited that some of you have been inspired to start your own fitness routines!  Yay you!  Love hearing your guy’s stories and what you have been doing in order to get in shape.  It’s hard but keep at it, the results are totally worth it!
