I've been pretty much just in burnout mode since finishing my thesis. Because of having to scrap my original project and restart, I had to do a ton of work in a short period of time to finish it, which I'm proud to say I did, but it left me feeling pretty drained for any sort of mental work. As my accomplishment charts show, I haven't been doing much that requires strenuous braining since completing that script. I guess I earned a rest, but it's been almost two weeks of this, and I should probably get myself together and figure out what my next project will be.

One thing I have been devoting a lot of time and energy to lately is my ballet and workout regime. I have been dancing two or three times a week, attending a circuit workout with a trainer that alternates between weights and cardio, and I just started adding a couple jaunts to the gym for running or lifting on top of it. A friend suggested I try this if I'm serious about wanting to get defined muscle tone, and I figured what the heck, my schedule is the most flexible that it's been in a long time, why not give it a shot. Accompanying this I've started trying to eat six small meals a day every three hours or so, to keep my metabolism up and give all that exercise something to build muscle with. I enjoy the frequency of it, but it cuts out pretty much all sugar, which was my typical unhealthy indulgence. It takes a ton of planning ahead, something I'm still getting used to, but it's gotten me cooking and thinking outside the box regarding food. I haven't seen much visual change in my body yet, it's only been a couple of weeks, but I do love how strong I'm getting. I feel so capable, and I love how it's improving my ballet dancing. I'm just going to have to get into good habits, including practicing ballet over the summer when classes are on break. I am loving ballet dancing so much, every class I kick myself that I didn't start doing this when I was a little kid. I will improve yet!

Still. I should think about what my next (intellectual) project should be. I have, as always, many options. I just need to choose what would be the best to pursue right now.
