    Monsters University is awesome as well.

    Apparently the minions sing a version of the Irish Drinking song that we are using in the variety show. That should be fun for Mike and I.

    The Drive In was great as usual. Loved DM2. Turbo was OK. It might appeal more to race fans. My youngest fell asleep.

    I Have created a 30 day challenge for myself for August.
    1) Do some form of deliberate exercise every day. (Yes, the exercise queen has dropped the ball.)
    2) Eat healthy, Primal food & Follow the ADF protocol. (I plan to eat mostly by W30 rules, but there will be some dairy and nitrites and hellmann's mayo. I will also be weighing daily.)

    Starting weight 226 +13 from June 1st. Today is a DD.

    Whys? Other than the big ones 1) Not Dying Young and 2) Being there for my kids, I have some short term Whys? as well.

    1) I return to school on August 30th. My goal was to weigh 199. Now I would be happy to not go back fatter than when I left. (Goal 213)
    2) I have the Variety Show on Aug. 23-25. I Want to feel like a sexy barmaid. I have to wear a skirt, so I want the swelling in my bad ankle to go down. Exercise will also help strengthen my core for singing.
    3) I am auditioning for "They're Playing Our Song" on Sept.3rd. I really want the lead role (Sonia Walsk) that the director hinted that he would like to give me. BTW He printed out the script for me so that I could prepare. The character is supposed to be in her early 30's, pretty, but overweight. The songs are perfectly in my mezzo soprano vocal range. BUT there will be competition for the role. It also depends on what men show up. The director is picturing me with a specific actor.

    Back to work In the basement for me and the boys...

    Short-term goals are great. They're what get me to actually stick to and achieve long-term goals. Sometimes I just "renew" them after I reach one. Hell, at one point, just biking 2 miles was a goal. Now I bike 8 miles daily to commute! Right now, I'm looking forward to straighter hips from daily stretching. The short-term will be relief from calf cramps

    For me, my goals for the month would be to exercise most days and to not eat any gluten for all 7 days a week.

    Good luck on your next audition!

    BIW mod 6 Lesson 2. Identify Blindspots

    -Adopt Empirical Knowledge. Rely on direct self observation & physical experiments. Engage directly with evidence collected. Become your own expert. Don't assume that what others tell you is true for you. ie. Going Paleo will kill all of your cravings.
    -Look for the bright spots no matter how small and autopsy them to see what you did right. ie. A productive day...Did you get more sleep? Write a to do list? Feed yourself differently?
    -Look for blind spots. What assumptions or false beliefs are hindering your progress? ie. It takes 21 days to make a habit. For most it actually takes a lifetime commitment.

    Practice: Form a mastermind group of 2-4 people to help you see your blind spots and support you as you work on a certain issue...building will power, decluttering, losing weight. (Shout out to the SPEED girls. Did you know we had formed a mastermind group?)
