Hello! Even though everyone will see this a day later than they’re supposed to, I wanted to make sure I got to share my December Monthly Mailer update with all of you.
This month, for my FIRST Monthly Mailer, I was paired with Millie (from Local Lady). She writes about life and events in Richmond, IN. I don’t ever recall visiting Richmond, IN, but her articles and calendars are very informative. Thanks for your note!
Here’s the pic I posted on Instagram!
Like I mentioned yesterday, I’m participating the in THE GOOD LIFE CHALLENGE this holiday season. You should all signup! It’s free! And say that I referred you! I’m going to try and highlight my experiences with the daily challenges here in my Tumblr as we go along! Let’s see how it goes!
Anyway, on to your challenge for today:
Choose one of your meals for the day and focus on stopping when you’re full. Like yesterday, remember to pick just one meal to focus on! If you haven’t had breakfast yet, practice on breakfast. If you already had breakfast, then practice this at another meal today.
Another good challenge for me today. I’m one of those people who was always told to “clean my plate” at every meal. I think that mindset followed me for a long time. If it was on my plate or in my lunch box I always just thought I HAD TO EAT IT. Turns out, that is not so. :) I’ve been a lot better about this over recent months, but it never hurts to touch base with your body’s hunger cues.
I once again focused on lunch for today just because it seems to be the easiest one to cover. Chicken breast and tater tots - I know, oh so healthy. ;) However, I did notice that I wasn’t full, but I was no longer hungry. I also did add a cookie on there afterwards, but it wasn’t out of hunger or not feeling full - it was just there.
It’s the holiday season, I surmise many sweet treats will be crossing my path over the next couple of weeks.

Your challenge for today is: Choose one of your meals for the day and focus on eating it when you’re actually physically hungry.
Yes, this is a great one for me. Especially today. During my normal job days when I’m working 9-5, this can be a little more tricky since my lunch time is dictated to me and I have to work with that. Or sometimes I just wait until it’s late in the afternoon to eat.
Today I was able to tackle this challenge with lunch. Since I work through the normal lunch hours on Mondays, I’m usually starving by the time I get to eat - that’s usually between 2-3pm. Today was no exception, come 2pm, I was famished. Luckily, I was prepared for that hunger after work with a turkey sandwich, chips, and a cup of chili. Now I probably won’t be hungry for dinner until like 8pm or so, but we’ll see!

Seems I only seem to update this thing after I’ve done a show, oh well. I like this group photo of the final scene from THE THREEPENNY OPERA. This particular show finished on October 20th. What an opportunity and I hope more opportunities with the opera keep coming my way! :)

Stephen Schwartz's Wicked opened on Broadway 10 years ago today. The production currently stars Lindsay Mendez as Elphaba and Alli Mauzey as Glinda. You can buy the 10th Anniversary Performance Limited Edition Commemorative Playbill (pictured above) here.
RAPUNZEL closed today. Over 22,000 people filled that house over 72 performances! What a fun ride! Stressful at first, but became a sheer pleasure by the end! I’m so happy that I have the opportunity to share something I love with so many and have the chance to share a stage with some truly talented people. No day “at work” during RAPUNZEL was ever boring. :) Now, on to THE THREEPENNY OPERA in the fall! But first, LET’S FRINGE!
