Putting the Spring back into my Spark

Time for a fresh start, and what better way than with a fresh page? I can't say that the past few years haven't been a struggle, but I'm still plugging along. And that's kinda the problem, I'm just plugging. I've lost some of my *Spark*, so I'm making getting my spark back a goal for this spring and summer!

*I need to get back into running. And I will!

*I need to lose a few pounds...but more importantly, some of the jiggle that has *sprung* back upon me. And I will!

*I need to get out more, and become more social, and maybe even get back into the theater/entertainment world. And I...well, I might. I need to be more social (and I will!), but still thinking about the theater thing.

*I need to rediscover my passion for life. I've been drifting a bit over the last few years, especially after I left my theater dreams behind, and I need to rediscover my spark and passion again. And I will!

And that's just the tip of the iceberg. I know there is so much more I am capable of, and I want to do all I can to figure out what that is, and what I can contribute to the world around me. And this spring is just the beginning!

Won't you join me?

My Goals:
Continue losing the flab and firm up my muscles.

Begin taking yoga classes, perhaps with an eye towards becoming an instructor. At the very least, be able to put my legs behind my head!

My Program:
I love running, and even completed a half and a full marathon in the past 2 years. I'm also a big fan of kickboxing, and have a problem with collecting exercise DVD's-I have an ever growing collection of all sorts! I'll try just about anything once.

Personal Information:
I'm originally from Chicago. From there, I moved to Knoxville TN, and from there I moved to Atlanta, where I am currently. I'm planning to move back to Knoxville soon, to pursue a more peaceful life.

I am a Christian who tries to live by the golden rule-do unto others as you would have done unto you. I try to be kind to everyone and appreciate and accept that not everyone will agree with me, nor I with them. I'm not always successful with this, but I continue trying.

Other Information:
I'm a recovering actor, and am now looking towards making a huge life change. I'm considering pursuing yoga, pilates and holistic nutrition as a career. Or not. Who knows. I'm open to just about anything!

Thanks for checking in on me. We're almost moved now, at least. We hired movers to move the bulk of the stuff yesterday, but the estimaters at the company underestimated how much we had (despite the fact that we sent them an itemized list, including the notation that we have 2 curved china hutches and lots of books and shelving) and so they estimated that it would take a half truck and 10.5 hours to move... and instead we ran out of room in the truck, we were about 1600 pounds over weight (which means we'll end up paying more than the estimate) and it was a 17 hour day for the movers (and about that for us). So today we spent picking up the majority of the stuff left behind... we didn't get everything, but it's close.

Unfortunately, most of the furniture can't go where it is supposed to because it's either going into the basement, which we need to refinish first, or in the diningroom/kitchen area, and we had the floors there redone and we are avoiding setting anything in there (besides one China cabinet that is too heavy for us to move ourselves) until it is fully cured. So right now about the only room that is really useable is the master bedroom and this corner of my office... and the office only sort of useful as the desk etc. isn't set up yet.

But we're getting closer. This week we get to touch up the trim and put down 1/4 round molding in the dining room, move boxes and furniture into the kitchen and diningroom, and start painting the one apartment. Once it's painted, we can clean it (which shouldn't take long as we barely lived there, really) and turn in the keys, and then clean the other apartment (which we did live in, but is also a lot smaller) and eventually turn in *those* keys. And unpack. And refinish the basement so we can put the books etc. down there. But we're getting closer.

Thanks (belatedly, I'm sorry; I 'm really far behind on responding to people!) for your comment on my blog. Yeah, pretty overwhelmed and stressed right now but also super excited!!! Got our keys yesterday and were able to take possession at midnight *happy dance* and were so hyped we were up until 2:30... and my husband had a 7:30 meeting this morning!!! Yeah, I think it will be worth it in the long run... so weird to think we are now homeowners though! It's something we've both always wanted but the cards just were never right.

Thanks for your comment on my BLC goals (I know, really late--it's been a really crazy spring followed by a crazy summer and apparently a crazy fall...). Your confidence in me both humbles me and inspires me. Yeah, things are still crazy busy here, and I'm still so exhausted from my last year of grad school... just bone tired and still pretty stressed. So I'm struggling with finding balance. I'm really hoping that once we get settled in the new house though things will finally settle down--I really could use a chance to regain my footing. Things probably won't slow down until January though. emoticon
