I know it’s been awhile since I posted one of these. Besides being away and having chores, as well as comments piling up, I’ve been in a bit of an emotional funk. Not really depression, but a lot of feelings to process and I’ve felt a need to kind of be quiet and let things slide. Just a bit tired. But I’m starting to come out from this and thinking about organizing a show before Mark and I leave for my birthday trip in a few days.
What’s new? Been enjoying my animation voice class with David, took a bonus narration class and ran into some of my peeps from the voice actors’ social group and had a good time. I can see from the experience that I have a long way to go, but it feels good to be on the path.
Went hiking for fun the other day, no recording as I needed to get up and down before the big rain. Hence the tardy show is on my mind. Slowly going through the blog comments and emails. Have a few audio bits to review as well. Also, Mark and I want to get a bike ride in today. That will be good as the rain kept me indoors yesterday. SoCal is back to its sunny self, now to work on MY sunnier self.
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.
*Daily statuses are not part of the blog’s email notification. When you enter your email under where it says SUBSCRIBE TO POSTS VIA EMAIL, you will be notified of regular blog posts and when podcast episodes are released. I didn’t want to clog your inbox with my daily statuses. However, the automatic publicize feature will inform you on my show FB page, my AdventureLaurie twitter account, google+ on its show page, and Tumblr.
PSS, some BCs have asked me the difference between blog postings and status pages. Blog postings are where I develop a complete topic triggered by my status thoughts. Status thoughts are how my day went, what’s on my agenda, and how my body feels today – and not much editing or thought goes into them. That’s why I don’t clog up your email with them. 🙂
BB (Body Balance) number: 7.
Sleep: 7 hours divided.
Tummy/Gut: Gut more full.
Hungry: After 1 hour awake. Regular breakfast satisfied
Mood: Still a bit melancholy.
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.
