Happy New Year beautiful humans ๐ŸŽ‰ May we all lead with a little more love and kindness in every encounter this year ๐Ÿ’• Not just with others, but with ourselves most of all.
If there is one thing that is easiest to slip right off the to do list, it is putting yourself first. So let's be unrelenting with our self love and care this year. Help your monkey mind quit talking shit in 2018 and kill it with kindness. Reprogram that haterade in your head with your attention and awareness. You're worth it baby ๐Ÿ˜˜
Stay kind. Stay curious. Who knows what you might find? ๐Ÿค” ๐Ÿ“ธ:@mister2speed

๐ŸŽ„ hoping everyone is having lots of festive fun!
Dont forget to take time for yourself during this busy time..always fill your love cup first ๐Ÿต๐Ÿ’–

#selfCareChallenge this schedule was set for the summer, but there are a lot of good tasks to try on this calendar. What a better way to celebrate my favorite month?
#octoberFirst #selfcare #mostwonderfultimeoftheyear #summerSelfCare

It's Monday morning and I'm off to the gym.
After a very busy weekend during which I had little down time to myself, I'm back in the gym working on chest, abs, glutes, anything and everything I need to do for me to be stage ready. There is a lot of unglamorous parts to getting this body in some semblance of shape. A lot of sweaty gym clothes, a crapload of laundry and laundry detergent budgeting, a lot of reading andresearch of various exercises that I can try to get and keep myself motivated, a ton of trying to keep myself from the candy dish, leftover meeting food and vending machine food at the office. There's a lot that goes into it. I'll give myself a break at some point and acknowledge my successes but now is not the time. Today, I push for my future self. Today, I push so that I can continue to not be lifted off the ground like a "pocket gay"/man-child. Today, I push because... Well because I practice what I preach.
#SummerSelfCare tip #446 - Even when it seems like nothing matters, it does. It matters. You matter. What you do matters to someone. What you do matters to your future self. So...do better!

It's Sunday afternoon and I'm off to the gym.

Today I had a chance to work out with my best friend after successfully convincing him to get his own gym membership. Not much to say in the way of motivation. Just trying to get this body right and tight for my next acting role as Tumbler in Restoration Stage's The Very Last Days of the First Colored Circus.

#SummerSelfCare tip #202 - just because you don't have anyone to work out with/push you, doesn't mean you have any excuse not to push yourself. Be your own motivation.

It's Friday morning and I'm off to the gym.
To be honest, I'm exhausted. I didn't want to get up this morning and am only here out of habit and a sense of obligation to my own body, which has treated me pretty well over the last 37 years. It deserves some care and general maintenance. So I'm here, not because it's fun but because it's the right thing to do. This week I've had very good workouts so I'm hoping today will be exception.
#SummerSelfCare tip #555 - take care of your body as it has taken care of you. I am more than my body. So are you. I am more than my sex, my education, my past. So are you. I am my future. I am my potential. I am more. And so are you.
Happy Friday!

It's Wednesday morning and I'm off to the gym.
These gym status messages are more often than not, a chronicling of my fitness journey but also a (hopefully) motivational to my future self and today is no exception.
Today I'd like to remind myself about what I affectionately call "the knowing". Yesterday, I had a discussion with one of the temps at my current place of work during which I recounted the story I have told countless times. The moment(s) I knew I was meant to be an actor, to be on stage. I, of course, talked about my high school theater teacher, Reyla (may she rest in peace), about my high school friend Elana. I too briefly touched on my experiences with the inimitable and seemingly immutable Vera Katz. I mentioned my hiatus from theater during which I took time to find (the rest of) myself. I told him of the Larrys, the Pauls, the Veronicas of the world. The Sues, the Cobys, the Jivons and Rikkis of the world, not to mention the Courtneys and Stevens of the world. The countless others who reminded me of what I already knew. The knowing that, among other things, I'm SUPPOSED to be an actor. I'm SUPPOSED to be a storyteller. In any event, as we continued our discussion (when we should have been working), as I "told him my story", I stored in my memory for later that I was moving him, touching him, inspiring him without even being on stage. He knew about "the knowing" also. What a lovely gift to "know" your purpose. But, as I work my way through this workout this morning, it occurs to me that what I failed to impart (that I'll rectify this morning), is that it is my belief that we all have MANY purposes in life. I'm not just supposed to be an actor. I'm SUPPOSED to be a lover, a role model to my brother, a sounding board for my mom. I'm SUPPOSED to be a shoulder to just be there when my loved one loses a parent, a resumรฉ re-writer for that friend who's trying to change careers, the spark that lights the fire for the oh-so-fleeting person who comes in and out of my life for them to seek the knowing too. I'll not dwell on the dark side of the knowing (that's for another day) but for now, I'm reminding my future self about "the knowing". Don't forget.

It's Monday morning and I'm off to the gym.
After an absolutely fabulous and relaxing weekend with my boo (during which I ate and drank whatever I wanted), I'm determined, now more than ever, to work on these old bones and get my body back in to shape. I also am super determined to eat better and get my own self image issues under control. Hell, I'm just determined. I'm probably my own worst critic. I'd like to give myself a break but I just can't. Not today. I might not feel this way tomorrow but this morning I feel like I need to push harder, strive for more, just flat out do better. My stomach is totally out of control. I'm in my late 30's and I'm capable of doing better.

#SummerSelfCare tip #25 - love yourself always. Like yourself most of the time. Admire yourself often. Then do better. Don't compare yourself to anyone other than your own past self. You may backslide but put one foot in front of the other and walk/run/jog/crawl towards being a better you.
Happy Monday!

Summer heat can leave the lymph with excess pitta. Which can show up as rashes, inflammation, itchy-red skin, anger, or sharp outbursts. Release it through cupping-gua sha and nourishing cooling oils.. Emerald Salve, Hemp or Coconut oil. #summerselfcare #balance photo @jamiearrigo

It's Tuesday morning and I'm off to the gym.
After a fairly relaxing Labor Day weekend filled with quality time with my best friend, Paul, art and culture at the Philadelphia Museum of Art and chill time with my high school friend, Elana and her adorable family, I'm determined to be grateful for all of my blessings and start this week off on a positive note.
#SummerSelfCare tip #236 - just because summer is nearly over doesn't mean that you should give up on working on getting a healthier body. Exercise your body (at the gym). Exercise your mind (read a book/go see a show... Better yet come see MY show!) Exercise your spirit (pick up the phone and talk to a good friend, your parent, your sibling).

It's Saturday afternoon and I'm off to the gym.
It's been a pretty much craptastic week. But I'm ending it on a high note this week. Today, I get to work out with my best friend, Paul. He's not certain what his workout goal is going to be but Paul is being a trooper today. We'll whip him in to shape yet.
#SummerSelfCare tip #903 - no matter the weather, enjoy the day. Even in the rain.
