So I had a costume fitting today. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this place. All my costumes are being made for me. To fit me perfectly. Everyone makes me feel great. They say all the right things. They are more than wonderful and sensitive with regards to the fact that I’m standing in a well lit room in my bra and panties with 10 people milling about.
That being said..
Actually, I’m kind of okay with the whole stomach out thing. It’s really the legs that get me. There are some short shorts and short skirts for me to wear too. And again, let me stress, they are GORGEOUS. I just get nervous that my body is not going to do the clothes justice.
How am I supposed to stay level headed about my body under these circumstances. Again, no one is forcing them on me. They cast me in the show. They have my measurements. They knew what they were getting themselves into. It’s me. I know. But still, I’m nervous.
I’m using an app called “Lose It” to track my calorie intake. I want to make sure I’m fueling properly. I’m expending a lot of calories on a daily basis in rehearsal, but as with race training, it’s easy to over eat because you’ve worked out hard that day. So far, so good. I think I really need to make sure to have a cheat meal here or there. I tend to be a little “all or nothing” with “diets”.
What do you think? What would you do in my situation? I’m trying so hard not to fall headlong into a bit of an over exercising, no chocolate or chips kind of craziness. That never lasts long. I actually just want to tone up and feel great about my body. Weight aside. Just feel like I can rock those costumes. ARgh.
