As anyone that knows me knows (and if they don’t, they SHOULD know) I am a total Bieber fan. (Please don’t stop following me if you’re not a Bieber fan, though! I’m not like a total nutball for the kid.) Anyway, I don’t remember what I was thinking about a few minutes ago, but it led me to listening to U Smile by the Biebs and god, I love this song. I wish the Biebs would just come to my house and sing to me every night before I went to bed.
Last year when his movie came out, I went to see it. Twice. With my gay friends, both times. In 3D, both times. The latter of which, one of them gave me a present: Purple Justin Bieber 3D glasses that I cherish to this day. True story, guys. I think a big part of the reason why I really like him is because he was not part of “the machine” aka DISNEY. I cannot stand any of those Disney stars. I takes me a VERY LONG time to remotely acknowledge that a Disney star is even somewhat okay. Example: Hillary Duff. I loathed her back in the day. Today – she’s kind of irrelevant, but if she were to be big again, I’d probably really be abraded again. Also, Miley Cyrus. I just…can’t handle all ‘o dat.
Child stars aside, today was pretty great. After work, which ended wonderfully, I did about 20 minutes of some really intense Zumba followed by about 15-20 minutes of cool down yoga/stretching/weightlifting and it was GLORIOUS. I wish I had more time to exercise so I could get in the swing of doing it every day or nearly every day again. I can get really addicted to it to the point of my day doesn’t feel correct if I don’t do it. And I need that in my life.
I can’t remember if I mentioned this yesterday or whenever it was, but I was looking at my 8th grade/early high school photo album and discovered my 9th grade homecoming pictures and I was visibly skinnier and I want to look like that again. I just want to be able to go shopping in more places and be able to fit into a size medium or small. That is basically my ultimate goal.
But also to just be a better looking me. Because a better looking me = a healthier me. And I want that again in my life. But it’s gonna take more work and more discipline. And I need to brace myself. But I can do it! I’ve done it before – the only thing stopping me is my excuses. Here’s to commitment and continuing my journey of weight loss! This reminds me, today I discovered this blog via AOL and encourage you all to check it out.
Also, last night I had a dream involving my choir/band teacher from high school and it reminded me of how much I miss being in choir. Whenever I sing in the car and get really into it, my voice tends to crack and get…weezy? And it’s because it’s not put to good singing use like it used to be all my senior year! It makes me truly sad and it’s one of the reasons I wish I were still in high school sometimes. Choir was one of my top favorite classes I ever took. I was the unproclaimed lead soprano (everyone kinda followed my lead, and got lost if I was lost – it was actually incredibly amusing and humbling) and it was just a great time in my life. Oh what I wouldn’t do to switch with a high schooler in Choir for a week…
