thank you so much for all of your supportive words and helpful advice!!
I will definitely put them to use... my mom already bought lots of the stuff you all told me about and is sending me a care package.
Tonight, some of the girls and I went out to Outback Steak House. A lot of the time I would normally eat something before I went, but since we went strait from rehearsal, I was hoping they would have something for me...but at a STEAK HOUSE?! I wasnt so convinced,,, but I still wanted to go out with everyone...so I went...thinking I was going to eat some lettuce and tomato.
THEY HAD SOMETHING FOR ME!!! I had grilled vegetables, with grilled pineapple and multigrain rice... HOW GREAT!!! totally hit the spot. I also had them bring me a sweet potato (with the skin on it)
YUM YUM YUMMMMMMMM
Rehearsal has been ok. We have been learning so much, and its sort of overwhelming. My body is sore, but I have been ice bathing so its really helping. (Yes... we sit in huge horse troughs of Ice water... usually between 48-50 degrees for 10 minutes after rehearsal) I dont have many blisters, but I do tape my feet every day and make sure I really take care of them...there is nothing worse than getting a bad blister.. and having to shove your food into a pair of heels and dance in them for 6 hours! UGH
(pic of my feet from last year all taped up... and a huge bruise from jumping on my food with a heel on)
So i wanted to say thank you again for all of your advice... I cant wait to try some of the suggestions and I plan on staying completely vegan while I am "on Stage!"
till tomorrow...your favorite Rockette...*
