My Week and Swine Flu

Posted Apr 27 2009 10:03pm

As you know I'm working in Mexico. Which is ALL over the news right now! I'm in Cancun and now that there have been cases that came from Cancun everyone back in LA is freaking out about us coming home. We're shunned from the office! If we go back we have to work from home. It's pretty crazy. I'm not really worried about it but it is weird. I'm more worried about not being able to get out of Mexico in a few weeks.

I feel like there's not much I can do to prevent it. The locals I work with do kiss me when they get to work. That's how they do things here. I feel like we shouldn't just stop doing that! But at the same time this flu thing could be bad. I keep thinking if this happened a month ago we would forsure need a doctor to check out everyone on the crew because EVERYONE was sick with these symptoms. I think it's totally blown out of proportion in the states. Yes, people in Mexico City have died, a lot of them, but no one in the states has and it's just spreading panic.

Back to tracking.....
I only tracked 4 out of the past 7 days. We had the last few days of shooting and our wrap party! Then yesterday I went to Playa Del Carmen. It was soooo nice to get away. We some great local food and some drinks. It was a really fun time and definitely worth the extra calories. We walked ALOT. I worked out in the morning so even though I went over my calories I feel good about it.

This is what we had in front of our faces at lunch! It was amazing though. They use natural sugar and cocunut to make most of these candies. Soooo delicious and sooo Mexican.

I haven't felt very motivated lately but I'm hanging in there. I'm trying to staying to about 1400 calories on my good days. I'm definitely not losing weight yet. At this point I'm really happy not to gain but I would REALLY like to lose, I hate feeling like this. I'm having so much fun here in Mexico right now that I don't want to not do things because I'm afraid of the number of calories I'm consuming. So I'm still doing things and eating out but trying to take it easy whenever I possibly can. This week is busy but I'm doing some sort of exercise for an hour every day. I have to! I must keep moving.

Thanks for listening!! I'll be back to talk about my new heart rate monitor!
