RAINY DAY EDITING – actually is quite soothing. Tiger the Cat and I spent a lazy day getting the audio file for day 99 produced and the show notes ready to publish. I thought about exercising, but just didn’t feel like it. It was a day for wrapping up in blankets and drinking tea and letting the weather be outside and me in.
Started getting some audio from BCs for show 100! Yay! Please, call or record and become part of the bravery song. Fionna has sent a new version that is FANTASTIC, and I’d LOVE YOU to be part of its debut.
All you need is to say 3 things:
- Your first name
- Your State or Country or General direction
- One reason why you are brave
Example: I’m Mark from California and I’m brave for posting a comment on day 98
It was a peaceful, non-stressed day, which is GREAT because this is going to be a very busy week for me. Interviews, social groups, hair cuts in downtown, loads of driving, loads of interacting. I’m glad I got the rest.
I know I’ve said this a few times, and I mentioned it in Day 99’s podcast, but will leave it here in case this is the way some BCs will discover it.
Feb 3 will be the one year anniversary of the start of the show, and it will ALSO be day 100. Please call the bravery hotline or send some audio with your good wishes or jokes or stories or songs to help me celebrate this milestone. Both my VO acting coach David and my director Marc have agreed to interviews to help me celebrate. And I have a few more tricks up my sleeve. I REALLY hope you can find a way to be part of this milestone show too! BTW, I need anything you wish to do, by Feb. 1, 2015 at the latest so I can write the show before I record Feb. 3. Earlier makes my life easier too. 🙂
SINGING IN THE RAIN! Not really, but I WILL be puddle stomping today for a little exercise and stress-busting, and I’ll be practicing and having my singing lesson today. Afterwards, Viki, my teacher will say a few words for show 100. I’m very exited to share some more of the awesome folks who have been shaping my bravery with you.
Umbrella at the ready, waterproof gear, a song in my heart… Off to see the wizard and have some watery adventures.
How about you?
Please feel free to comment on MY statuses or add YOUR OWN thoughts, feelings, challenges, rants and raves on these pages too. That was one of the original purposes of why I posted on FB. I thought BCs might like to share about THEIR days. So if you have thoughts and feelings you’d like to share with the group, go ahead and put them here with your comments.

BB (Body Balance) number 8 Sleep: 8 hours divided in 3( ok first 4, restless next 2, great last 2) I feel pretty rested considering. Tummy/Gut: Playing very nice, and feels balanced. Hungry within two hours of waking, and feel I need something more substantial than normal. Will go the egg and toast route. Energy: High Moderate Mood: Quirky.
BB is my personal criteria, and I don’t think too hard about it. I ask myself at the keyboard, what is my BB? A number between 1-10, including halves, pops into my head. I write it in my post Then I figure out why it is higher or lower and gently make note.
If you are interested these are my measures.
- Sleep. Quality and Amount.
- Tummy/Gut – If I ate what my body asked for, usually above and below the belly button feel balanced. Ate too much, below the belly button feels more full. Ate too little, the reverse.
- Am I hungry within 1 hour of waking? I have found that I feel best if I am hungry within 1 hour of waking. This tends to make my eating day even and not heavy on food in the evening. But I don’t eat if not hungry unless I’m about to ride or hike. I’ve learned I need to fuel these morning activities, or I’ll bonk.
- What is my energy level? Subjective, but telling.
- A quick look at my mood.
