This coming week is the last week before rolling into TECH WEEK. While I have never experienced tech week as an actor, as a drama mama during Andrew’s tech weeks, I know it can be intense for all involved. Yesterday afternoon, I attended rehearsal to work solely on my monologue and solo for the play. I’m enjoying the process of developing my character and exploring different choices as Mitch. It’s an exciting feeling!

So, I plan to bask in the calm before the storm this week. Hydration and eating clean are top priorities. Getting an ample amount of sleep and keeping stress to a minimum are key. This week is a season of self-care. Next week is a season of sacrifice. Both are temporary but necessary for an incredible end result. Tickets are now on sale at www.octavians.org if you, dear reader, feel so inclined to come see a hilarious show that encourages audience participation.

If you want an excuse to rewatch The Office, check out the new podcast, Office Ladies. Jenna Fischer (Pam) and Angela Kinsey (Angela), who happen to be BFFs,  take you on an episode-by-episode journey that breaks down each episode and gives you behind the scenes information on the much loved tv show.

Kombucha 2My quest for Big Easy Kombucha is still in full force. I have only been able to find it at my local Wal-Marts. They have added two more flavors, Jammin’ Ginger infused with ginger, Meyer lemon, and hibiscus and Melon Magic infused with cantaloupe, honeydew, and watermelon. I usually enjoy a cup of Kombucha with my dinner. Apparently, Big Easy Bucha has a tasting room in New Orleans where you can try Kombucha on draft. Road trip!

I am down another pound which puts me at a total loss of 9 pounds since September 2nd. Slow and steady wins the race. I am ten pounds away from meeting my weight loss goal.

Life is good, dear reader. Better yet, life is wonderful! I am living a blessed filled life. What are your plans for the remainder of the weekend? My hubby and I are going to see Zombieland: Double Tap in a couple of hours. We watched the first one last night to refresh our memories. Good stuff! After Andrew gets off work (yes, work…an official employee at BAM), we plan to meet him for dinner at SLU. The cafeteria in the Student Union is amazing. Happiness!

“…and when the tension receded there was calm, the calm that is called before the storm, but is in reality the foundation of a human life, waiting there for us between the steps of our march to our mortality, when we are compelled to pause and not act but be.”  ~ Mohsin Hamid, Exit West

For the past four Saturdays, I have been attending an Acting for Film & Television Workshop in New Orleans. Yesterday, I had my last class which turned out to be exciting, emotional, and eye-opening. My acting coach Lance Nichols invited a director (Oley Sassone), a director of photography (Claire), and a script supervisor (Sandy Parker) to teach the class. As an actor, you need to not only prepare yourself for your performance, but you must also know the technical aspects of performing in the space of the scene. I walked away from this workshop showing more growth as an actor, gaining more wisdom and insight into the craft of acting, and obtaining a better understanding of the technical aspects of working as an actor in film and television. In addition, I met wonderful new friends in the acting community which is so beneficial on this journey to becoming a thespian. Since my workshop has ended, I will be focusing solely on my role as Mitch Mahoney in the upcoming theater production of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.

KombuchaEver hear of Kombucha, dear reader? Molly Kimball, a New Orleans registered dietician, talked about Kombucha on her September 12th episode (“Behind the Brand: Big Easy Bucha”) of her podcast, Fueled: Wellness + Nutrition with Molly Kimball. She interviewed Austin Sherman, co-founder and CEO of Big Easy Bucha, to learn more about this locally produced tea and why we should be consuming it. There are several benefits of drinking this concoction rich in probiotics. According to an article by Kristen Lila on the website Odyssey, Kombucha cleanses and detoxifies, supports joint health, helps digestive heath/gut health, supports immune health, promotes energy, and helps aide cancer prevention/recovery.

I found Big Easy Bucha at Wal-Mart a couple of weeks ago, and I bought a bottle of Jazz Juice which is infused with Pineapple and Elderflower. I’m not going to sugarcoat it. The first sip tasted like vinegar. My hubby tasted it and agreed. I almost cut my losses and poured the rest of it down the drain. Instead, I decided to drink small amounts of it over the next couple of days, and surprisingly I now like it. Yesterday, I bought another bottle of Jazz Juice along with a bottle of Bayou Berry which is infused with Strawberry and Honeysuckle. I like the Bayou Berry more. My hubby says it tastes like vinegar, too. HA! More Kombucha for me. I asked Molly if Kombucha should be consumed daily and how much is enough to see benefits. It is good for daily consumption and 8-16 ounces per day is plenty. Molly personally drinks a 16 ounce bottle most days. I’m planning to incorporate at least 8 ounces daily. Since there is a variety of flavors, I’m on a mission to find other ones. The Wal-Mart in Ponchatoula only carries Jazz Juice and Bayou Berry.

October is finally here, dear reader, but somehow it forgot to bring cooler weather with it. I’m hoping, as I’m sure the rest of Louisiana is hoping, that this week will bring plenty of much-needed rain, as well as cooler fall temps. In the meantime, enjoy the rest of the weekend. And, if you come across some other flavors of Big Easy Bucha in your grocery store, please let me know. Happiness!
