exploring la : solstice canyon

Because of my shoulder, my workouts haven’t been what I’d like them to be this past month. I think that discouragement has made me seriously slack on the food side of things as well. So this next month I’m participating as best as I can in the #TIU31 fitness and nutrition challenge to kick my butt back into […]

classpass

I began writing this post before my unfortunate shoulder injury a few weeks ago, so as of late, I haven’t been able to attend classes that require much of an arm/shoulder workout (which severely limits me). It’s a bummer for sure, and I’m trying to straddle that line of letting it rest but also not letting […]

taking control of my fitness

This past month I have gotten serious about my fitness and my health. I’d been slowly jumping back onto the workout routine, but after seeing some taped audition footage of myself, as well as photos wearing a swimsuit, I knew I needed to commit. I’m fortunate that my metabolism is relatively fast, but it just can’t keep up […]

fitness attire

The past few weeks I have been getting serious about my fitness (I’ll talk more about that later), and I bought some new workout clothes for probably the third time in my life. Most everything I had was hand me downs and so worn they were literally falling apart. And most of the things I wore weren’t […]

new routines

I leave for Europe next week and couldn’t be more excited. It’s my first time out of the country since I moved here from Japan at the age of 8, and it’s my first time to Europe. But I’m trying to appreciate my time until then so I don’t go crazy with the anticipation (easier said […]

life as of late

Man, it’s been a while. Still trying to figure out that work-life balance thing. March was a busy month for me – what with spending the entirety of my days editing, shooting footage, and recording voiceover for a big video project at work, as well as attending a slew of casting workshops in the evenings and on […]

the architect

I’m pretty sure certain I’ve spoken numerous times about the contradiction that is my brain and the anxiety that courses through it and my efforts to battle/live through/survive it. I even took a personality test, not once, but twice (because how could this be true??), and came out with this personality: Architect: INTJ-T, which apparently only […]

slowing down

This week has felt exceptionally long. And I have felt exceptionally tired. I’m assuming it’s a culmination of several things that have all attributed to this longest week in existence. I last talked about the winter/new year blues setting in and searching for ways to combat it. Being stuck in an office all day doesn’t […]

winter blues

I can’t be the only one thinking it – now that Christmas is over, can we stop with the cold weather already and fast forward to summer? Without the twinkle lights and festive merriment, it’s just not cute anymore. But alas, this icy monster is making it even harder to rise out of bed in the morning (will […]

one little word

It’s New Year’s Eve – I’m at the office today and making a trip to San Diego this evening to celebrate. The office is slow, and we’re going to have an impromptu mixed drinks party this afternoon to kick off the new year. I’m reflecting on this past year, and though I’ve shared my goals […]
