Four Year Anniversary - TIME CAPSULE TIME!

Hello.

Can you believe that another year has clicked by? It's been four years to the day that I started this little blog about my journey on the Tracy Anderson Method. Incredible.

And last year, I followed the lead of another blogger and came up with the plan to create a Tiny TAM Time Capsule and encouraged you to put in your comments, thoughts, hopes and desires for where you'd be a year from that day.

You can read that post HERE!

What can I say, it was indeed a fantastic year. Did it come without hiccups? No. Did it have both ups and downs? Hellz yeah! Did I do everything I set out to? Um not exactly. I will admit that my TAM time capsule post was a bit fanciful.

I predicted that I'd be well into year three Continuity, in fact having one on one classes with Stacey and Maria while hanging out with Tracy and GP at the wrap party of my second film, among other things. No one can accuse me of not dreaming or having a wild imagination. Got that in spades.

So how did the year shape up?

I stopped and started Year Three a number of times and in the end had to go with my gut instinct and stop. The workouts were a little too long and complicated for a simple girl like me. I did go on to order Glutecentric of Metamorphosis and have thus far made it to level 5 (then I got the mutha of all colds last month and am only now making my recovery). 

Do I still believe in Tracy and the Method? You bet your ass I do. I swear by her work and the content she creates. Remember, I have never met her. I do not get anything from endorsing her. My body is my only proof and the woman still makes me work hard no matter what level, what centric, or what workout I'm doing of her Method.


Do I get up at 6am everyday to get my workout in? Um, not so much. Am I craving cardio? Yeah, not! But I have grown more fond of it and have taken to learning some of the choreographed dances and I'm okay with that.

Am I at my ideal weight? No. But I still fit (most days) into my skinny-ish jeans.

My diet will forever and for always give me the most trouble. I drink too much coffee, love my bread and cheese and cannot quite permanently keep off the sugar. Crap!

As for my career? There isn't a wrap party for the second film as yet, but I do have a film moving forward and with any luck, we'll shoot it next summer. Keep your fingers crossed for me. I've also just developed a one-hour serialized TV show that I'll be shopping very soon and I am so jazzed about it.

The film I did make continues to screen at many festivals world-wide - here is the film's star Cara Gee and me at a festival early this year.


Funny enough, and totally unexpected, I won Canada's Oscar, the Canadian Screen Award for Best Original Screenplay. Like wowzers! Blown away.

You can download the film on iTunes and Vimeo if you're curious. It's called Empire of Dirt - like the line from the Johnny Cash tune Hurt.


How did you make out this last year? Were your eating habits cleaner? Did you workout more? Harder? More efficiently? Did you achieve the goals you set for yourself?

We don't always achieve everything we want to, but my dad always says, if you aim for nothing, you'll hit it every time. I would encourage you to go for something this year. September is a fantastic time to shoot for a new star. Stretch a little farther, reach a little higher, be a little braver. You only live once.

What does the next year look like? Who can predict? But I do know that it's time for a change. Time for me to try something else. With that in mind my lovelies, the moment has arrived to bid you adieu.

Please take a glance at my FAREWELL PAGE and see what four years on the Method looks like. I so love and appreciate each and every one of you who has stopped by over the years. You've truly touched my life in ways you'll never know. Take care of yourselves and keep in touch.

Big hugs.
Shan
