…yeah it’s been a while. My thoughts have been bottled up in business but I just wrote a midterm and so I have some dumpage to do. Ya feelz?
Thanks to the lovely Miss Spoons for giving me a platform to clear za brain
1. Them Guilty Feelz
I want to say sorry like 100 times over to you guys that I have been slacking in the postage department. I dunno what has come over me lately but I’m drawing a major blogging blank and I don’t like it. You guys don’t make me feel like I owe it to you to to post, but I want to share information with you. I think I’m also getting a lil burnt out. Ever get that feeling at the end of the year when things are starting to pile up right before exams and you just don’t care anymore? Yeah, #StudentFeelz
Help me out with this blockage by lending some ideas over my way on what you want to see.
I think another thing making me feel guilty is that I haven’t seen many comments on my last few posts. This isn’t to say that I need validation or anything, but I really feed off of you guys and it makes me begin to question whether the material I’m posting is boring you. Please, if it is, or there is something you really want me to post about, lemme know! The last thing I want to do is be that blogger…
2. Midterm Feelz
So I literally just wrote a midterm and now I’m sitting in night class. Don’t they know I need time to mind-dump after writing before I can be respondent again? Apparently not.
[Insert running to the University Centre to heat up food]
Night Class–> 7pm- ….
It’s my birdcourse so I’m leaving at 9 regardless. Sshhhh I’m a good student I promise.
3. Gym Feelz
This article is amazing. Cardio Bunnies READ NOW! Click on the picture for the link to the article
I think this is really well written! So many good points she made, here are some of what she said that I really believe in as well and think you should know:
- When it comes to cardio, intensity trumps. 60 minutes on the treadmill…no thanks and really not needed.
- If you find yourself having to clock more and more minutes to simply maintain your weight, you’re in a cardio cycle and can potentially be damaging your metabolism long term (not to mention be miserable!). The body is smarter then you are. It adapts to constant cardio and how does it do this? It slows your metabolism down so if you want to loose weight, you will then have to add even more cardio until you just plateau. It’s a bad cycle my friends!
- Nutrition will always trump cardio when it comes to fat loss. Nuff said.
- Weight training trumps cardio for fat loss. Intense weight training increases testosterone, growth hormone and lactate, all of which impact muscle synthesis and fat burning. Doing cardio alone to burn cals can impact weight loss, but it takes some muscle along with it. Think sprinter vs endurance runner. Muscle vs waif.
Disclaimer. PLEASE NOTE that the last statement I made was not meant to make jabs at people who run long distances, it was to make a point.
4. Ice Cream Feelz
Guys I’m going for Baskin Robbins on Saturday. I have been craving it for months and have decided to set a date and a time to make sure I don’t keep saying no. I now feel the ability to be open about things such as fear foods and unfortunately as much as I love the cold’n creamy stuff, I feel immense guilt about even thinking about letting myself have any. This is beside the fact that sometimes my lactaids fail me and my body then hates me for the next few days.
I’m gunna do it. I have my housemates coming to enjoy too and offer support. And damn it I’m going to enjoy it.
No anxiety all day up until that moment please and thanks ED.
5. Food Feelz
I forgot how much I really like burgers…
Tuesday nights dinner, although it didn’t contain fish (gasp), was pretty geewwwwd. Made me remember Chucks Burger Bar.
6. Awkward Feelz
Anyone else feel all kinds of uncomfortable when talking about and viewing elderly people having sex? Well I’m sitting her learning about how wild an elderly persons sex life really is…and it came with videos. #LectureFeelz!
7. Longevity Feelz?
Apparently this test is one that is used to assess your longevity.
Deduct a point every time you have to touch your knee, floor or whatever as you try to go from sitting to standing. The lower your score, the longer you will live apparently.
I’m gunna live forever!
One that note, I’m gunna jet home, so talk at you lata times my friends!
Favourite ice cream flavour? Anything with peanut butter and I’m feeling caramel lately… Two scoop club oh hey!
