So today I had a shorter day on the set. I started around 10:00 AM and was released around 3:00 PM. It was a fun day. However, upon getting released from the set I got depressed.
I really feel like when I walk on to the set I'm actually "home". It's such a comforting feeling to be there. I'm happy and content and don't feel like I'm "working" in any way. Even though we keep ridiculous hours and I often need an amazing amount of sleep to counteract the time/energy it takes, I'd do it over and over again just to be a part of this incredible experience.
I love this work. I love that this is my job. I love saying that I'm a working actor and having something really impressive to show for it.
So leaving I feel "set-sick". I'm homesick for the work, the people, the art.
To deal with that, I'm back trying to be on-track with my workouts and eating.
Of all the amazing things about being on set, I notice that I drink less water and am not as careful about noting every single calorie I put in my mouth. While I'm not being an idiot about choices, I'm still grazing more than I'm writing. It's tough when you are grabbing a quick bite between shots. It's the nature of the game.
But I'm back...at least for a few days. Hopefully it's enough to start the scale moving down. :) While I'm very proud of my work, I still have a ways to go before I hit my true goal.
Today's Goal: jump into the full routine = SUCCESS!
Tomorrow's Goal: Keep on that water!
