  • RED CARPET READY

    RED CARPET READY

    RED CARPET READY By: Lauren Anderson   Full disclosure: My nails are wet as I type this. I have an event to go to tonight, where I have to dress up a little. And there will be a red carpet, and I will likely be photographed. It will be fun, for sure. And it’s to […]

  • MASS APPEAL

    MASS APPEAL

    MASS APPEAL By: Lauren Anderson I’m kind of ashamed to admit this. But if I can’t be honest with you dear reader, than what’s the fricking point of this right? Okay, here goes. I used to play this game called “Mass Appeal”. There’s a good chance I’ve even mentioned it before, so bear with me. […]

  • THE PRODIGAL ATHLETE

    THE PRODIGAL ATHLETE

    THE PRODIGAL ATHLETE By: Lauren Anderson   I recently commented on a friend’s YouTube channel referencing an inside joke we had about the “Prodigal Son”. Mere moments of the comment living online and whamo! I got internet trolled by some self-proclaimed biblical parable “expert” white guy, telling me that I should “look up that story, […]

  • A HECKLER UPDATE

    A HECKLER UPDATE

    A HECKLER UPDATE By: Lauren Anderson   For those of you reading this blog from the start, you may recall the post I wrote about being heckled onstage for being fat during a corporate improv show a few years ago. For those of you new to this: you can catch up here. https://solcanafitness.com/2016/08/week-39-heckled-and-doctor-jekylled/ I was […]

  • COMPASSION IS THE BIGGEST FLEX

    COMPASSION IS THE BIGGEST FLEX

    COMPASSION IS THE BIGGEST FLEX By: Lauren Anderson I found myself a little lost the other day in the U of M campus. Between the construction and the one-ways, and all the co-ed summer students getting from A to B, it’s amazing that I ever made it out alive. I was stuck on one of […]

  • A NEANDERTHAL’S CRAVING

    A NEANDERTHAL’S CRAVING

    A NEANDERTHAL’S CRAVING By: Lauren Anderson So, the other day I go to make myself a morning egg scramble. It’s been a while since I’ve properly cooked a breakfast like this, summer being as busy as it has been. But I found myself with a few hours to spare, and I thought I would treat […]

  • BREAK IT DOWN TO BUILD IT BETTER

    BREAK IT DOWN TO BUILD IT BETTER

    BREAK IT DOWN TO BUILD IT BETTER By: Lauren Anderson All summer long, I haven’t been feeling very well physically. Not sick really, but not at peak Anderson to be sure. To tell you the truth, I can’t quite place it. Some days I feel bloated, and some I feel hollow. But there is a […]

  • BICEPS AND BEER

    BICEPS AND BEER

    BICEPS AND BEER By: Lauren Anderson I struggled with celebrating the 4th of July last week like many Americans did. How do you celebrate a country that keeps children locked in cages, away from their families, in terrible conditions? We’ve been taught that America stands for the home of the free– but our own government […]

  • HUMPTY DUMPTY HAD A THOUGHT

    HUMPTY DUMPTY HAD A THOUGHT

    HUMPTY DUMPTY HAD A THOUGHT By: Lauren Anderson The other day I’m sitting in my dressing room at work, chatting with some friends before a show. (I am an actor, so think of it as my “office” except there are a lot of mirrors, and it’s perfectly acceptable to take your clothes off… and put […]

  • MY PROBLEM WITH ‘NO PROBLEM’

    MY PROBLEM WITH ‘NO PROBLEM’

    MY PROBLEM WITH ‘NO PROBLEM’ By: Lauren Anderson   I do it. You do it. We all do it. We all use the phrase “No problem” all the time. And recently it’s started to bug me a little. But why? WHY?!?!? Let me explain… I was getting my groceries at a fancy grocery store. I […]
