Back to Work
I mentioned in yesterday's blog that my prep for TALE is different than that of the other show I work with Phil Goglia.
What's different is that 'Carton' lived in London in the late 1790's. He also drank excessively and basically didn't take care of himself. To that end I wanted to be very thin and not overly muscular.
So Phil put me on much the same dietary program but the gym routine was a bit different. I was to do a MINIMUM of one hour of cardio a day and no weights whatsoever. So I did...and I began to drop the weight. I continued to stretch and do a bit of yoga, flexibility is important to me.
I hurt my back in 1995 (herniated a disc) and I rehabbed by doing yoga so I keep that up daily as well. I wouldn't recommend cutting out the strength training, weights etc. because i think it's a good thing to keep in the daily routine.
I cut it out for this specific purpose and obviously had a precise goal in mind. Setting goals...another important thing in my life...(that and trying to figure out which stroller to buy for the baby). I've become a stroller aficionado!
