So, I need to get this off my chest. I'm a big fan-girl. When I find something I like, I go overboard looking for stuff relating to it. The Avengers? Don't even get me started on the Tumblrs I found. Now the Voice.
The Voice is such a great show. It takes people who wouldn't normally get deals and gives them a chance. I love all the coaches. I grew up with Christina Aguilera so I love her. CeeLo is just hilarious. I mean, who has a parrot and a fluffy white cat for mascots? Adam is legit and I've been a fan of Maroon 5 since the beginning. And Blake...don't get me started on Blake Shelton. He is just so handsome, funny and talented. He's so comfortable with himself that when sexual comments, he just adds to them. He and Adam have such a bromance. AND he's over 6 feet tall with a drawl! A DRAWL!!!
Thanks for listening to my fan-girling rant
On a fitness note, went to the gym today :)

So two weeks ago I said I was back, then I left again. Trying to find my groove and routine has been hard. I got a membership to the local YMCA and I went today. I'm going to walk to and from school tomorrow. It's 5k there and back, but I might still go to the gym for a sweatier workout.
This is also the last time I'm going to reset my goals and trackers. Once I get back in the school groove and schedule my entire days and not just my classes, then I'll be better.
On a side note, my mom has been doing really well with her weight loss progress. I'm kind of resenting it, but I pretty positive it's just misplaced emotion, stemming from the 'rents' separation. I feel like "Really, you're leaving my dad AND you're getting skinny? Nope, not allowed!" I know that's irrational but that's how I feel.

So I haven't been on SparkPeople for a while now. I moved back to the city for school and my internet isn't hooked up yet. I haven't really been exercising since the long weekend, so 10 days. I got out of the groove. The gym at the school isn't ready, so I'm going to the Y tomorrow and get a membership. I'm also getting groceries tomorrow so I'm going to plan my meals again and not just eat whenever.
I reset my account so I can restart and not see the gap in progress. I'm going to get back on track early in the semester this year!

I feel fantastic today! I finished my Spark to 5K tonight in 34:05. I did 5 kilometres in 34 minutes! Holy crap, I felt amazing. I got a stitch in my side at one point and thought about stopping for about a half-second. I was really determined today. I decided to do intervals of a sort. I changed my pace every quarter-mile. It made me run harder and I finished those sections faster. According to the treadmill, I maxed out my heart rate and I don't doubt it. My bangs were dripping sweat through my headband.
Earlier today, I made a status update about how fit I felt. And it's true, I feel so much fitter since mid-June when I joined Sparkpeople. I exercised on-and-off for a few months at the beginning of 2012 but life and school got in the way of real success.
The other day, I came home for lunch and decided I was going to walk back to work instead. I made a wrap and it was full of every vegetable I had in the fridge. I almost considered no meat because it was that big. I was walking back to work with my wrap in one hand, water bottle in the other listening to my iPod. The sun was shining and there was a light breeze. My arms started pumping of their own accord with the music. I finished my wrap and started munching on an apple. My first bite in to the apple, the only thought that ran through my mind at that moment was:
"Holy man, I feel like the healthiest mother-f*cker on earth"
(Sorry about the language, it was my inner monologue)
I still feel like that now :) and I'm not going to give it up easily this time!

Today my co-worker brought cupcakes her daughter-in-law made. I've been doing really well with staying on track so I don't know why I took one. It wasn't even that good, it was really bland actually.
I blew a lot of calories on that cupcake. I don't know what was in it so I can only guess. I found something like it on the Food tracker but I still think it was probably 100 more calories. Now I don't know what I want for dinner.
I do plan on exercising tonight but I don't know what exactly I want to do either.
Stupid cupcake...made me indecisive.
