Okay, I know that I already blogged today but dude, I have to brag for a second.
Tonight was supposed to be our sound tech rehearsal for Godspell. What that means is that not only was it our first time together with the live band, but we were also supposed to all get our mics and test against the soundboard with our sound tech guy. Well, it turns out our sound tech guy bailed on us and our replacement couldn’t make it tonight. Also, this was the first time for the band playing together all as one unit so it took them two hours after we got there to get their stuff together. We just speed ready lines in the front lobby.
The reason I am telling you all this is because techs are typically late night rehearsals, the director had promised everyone pizza before the whole thing fell apart, and she held true to her promise.
So while she brought in six pizza pies from Papa Johns with a vat of garlic sauce packages, it smelled so crazy good. I told myself that I would eat my little half pita sandwich that I brought and my snap peas and if I was still hungry I would eat one slice.
Needless to say I was not still hungry, so I didn’t have a piece. While my cast mates ate with great vigor and went back for seconds, I instead posted a pic on Instagram about how I was being good and was rewarded with all kinds of encouragement. That helped a LOT!
I know it’s not much, but it was a huge step for me. Normally I would have dived head first into that pizza and bathed in it. I’m really proud of myself that I have managed to get my willpower back and it is sticking.
Of course my period is coming up rather quickly so that will be a huge test, but I think I’ll do okay. As long as I am prepared.
Tonight I got home around nine and the first thing I did before relaxing was make my breakfast, lunch and snacks for tomorrow. That is what I have to do each night no matter how late I get home, otherwise I am setting myself up for failure.
I feel like I’m finally getting on the right path. I even entertained the thought that as soon as the show goes up, I might start my running training again. I haven’t run in at least three years, but I know that when I did I felt amazing and eventually looked great too. The timing seems right. It will be after daylight savings so it will still be light out after work.
I really love the idea of it, we’ll see if I put it into practice.
Anyhoo, that was my brag for the night. I feel like I earned it. 🙂
