It’s been a while since I’ve added a new blog entry, so I thought I better add one before I forget how!
Nothing exciting to add, just some more of the usual I’m afraid, but the past few months have been okay for me but not great health-wise and workout wise. I’m mostly back to normal life since the passing of my father on Christmas Day (you never really recover fully from the loss of a family member but I’m coping better now) and I’ve kept busy with my theatre. I just finished playing “Big Daddy” in Tennessee William’s “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.” One of the most demanding roles I’ve tackled – even though I’m still more than a decade to young for the part – and one of the most gratifying in many ways. Great cast mates and the opportunity to work off some “off stage” aggression and depression. Audiences seemed to enjoy the performance and I was even recognized while out a week later (fans, you gotta love them).
Unfortunately, I’ve used theatre as an excuse to stay away from the gym – after all “Big Daddy” doesn’t need to be thin – but that’s past now. I’m busy with work and family activities but now is time to start training for another 5K this summer. I still do my tap dancing once a week but I’ll need more cardio to get my time down from my last effort two years ago (has it really been that long? Yes!).
Looking to drop about 20 lbs this summer and actually add some muscle back to this old frame. Wish me luck! I hope everyone else is reaching their goals.
