  1. So, usually we do aerial rings class there. I find it fun but painful, and usually tap out halfway through to practice juggling. Last week's class, we did a variety of circus-y stuff. Started with tumbling - did some forward and backward rolls. I can't yet build up the momentum for backwards! Then we did some aerial silks basics, just holding on with our hands and feet, then hanging upside down on the silks (with it knotted behind our backs). Then we did some hula-hooping, which I wasn't that great at! Kept falling down And finally some juggling. Jupiterstar is a newbie to that, so we focused
  2. Hi, sorry. I'm going through a depressive episode, so it's hard to update/respond to stuff. Sorry for the absence. Not doing very well on any front this month. Tracking food every other day, maybe. Tracking some purchases, but not all. Very little yoga so far. And due to a busy schedule, only one instance of rollerblading. I did go to circus class last week, though. Was fun. Think I'm going to focus on things like creative endeavours next month.
  3. Body: Do yoga twice a week. Body: Go biking with rollerblading anime freak (@JupiterStar) twice a week. Food: Track what I'm eating every day. Life: Track my spending - immediately! - no matter how small. It's short this time. I'm tired, and I have to be up early tomorrow. Plus I was out at a social gathering tonight and all my words have been used up for the day.
  4. So, final results. Looks like I started slipping on soda and chocolate as the month went on. Tooth brushing was good, only missed 3 days in the whole month! My aim of 3 yoga things a week was a bit ambitious, so next month I will do two times a week.
  5. The shipping to here wouldn't be extortionate, only $5 or so, but the cost of the bars puts me off. Also, since I didn't grow up with s'mores, it probably wouldn't hit the right buttons
  6. Long-overdue update. I realised that milk tea has 6-7g sugar, not 12+ like I thought, so my resolve for not drinking it has weakened! I've had it quite often in the last week Been doing so-so on the chocolate. It's been a hard week for Jupiterstar, and so for me, so I'm not so strong against the nummy snacks, especially on my way home. Yoga, last week was good, this week I only managed once. My Tuesday disappeared in running around Osaka looking for speciality shops that have feta and white baking chocolate. Ugh. Buying anything in Japan seems to be super hard. You want bland
  7. First day back at regular job after the holiday, and I've guzzled a coke and two snickers on my way to and from the school. Damn the alternative versions, they taste so good! I was just nauseous with hunger on my way home, though, and I saw they had both the dark choc and the almond varieties, so I cracked. I went into the shop like, "okay, banana chips", but immediately changed to "oh damn it, snickers". Oh well. No yoga today either, but maybe I'll give it a try tomorrow, on my day off. Still going strong with the tooth brushing, though!
  8. Wait, scratch the yoga fail! We just did a quick bedtime yoga video So, that's one day this week so far, at least!
  9. Hi @Guzzi, @fleaball, sorry for the disappearing act! We've been travelling to Tokyo for Golden Week (bunch of national holidays in a row), so it's been super busy the last wee while. Milk tea is kind of like a tea latte. I've had those from Starbucks, and I noticed the similarities. It's sweetened, and you can get it cold (in a plastic bottle) or hot (bottle or can). Canned hot drinks were weird for me at first, especially from a vending machine, but it's so useful for warming up in the winter that I stopped thinking it was strange very quickly! I've attached a picture of my preferred b
  10. ... Confession time. I had an energy drink today. That's like, soda plus bad. So, a fail on that today. But still no chocolate! I have actually been super tired the last few days, and needed a boost for classes today. I realised last night that it's because I forgot to go to the doc and refill my meds, so my underactive thyroid is lounging all over my metabolism and making me sleepy. So I'm going to go tomorrow (first chance I have, and last for over a week due to public holidays), and I'll be back to normal, no energy drinks needed anymore. I'm actually quite wary of them now, since a 25-yea
  11. I did not have milktea in my life before I moved to Japan. 'Tea with milk' and 'milktea' are sooooo different. Even when I buy it hot, it's still different from brewed tea in a mug with milk. It's sweet, without tasting like two sugars in tea tastes like. I don't get it, but it's yummy, and I can't get enough. So, it's a problem.
  12. So far this week, I have managed to brush my teeth once a day! *those are my shiny teeth* Still seeing some blood from my gums when I rinse, though They are sensitive, and un-used to brushing, I guess. I'm not too worried, cos I know that gums are likely to be more delicate and easily damaged by the toothbrush if you don't brush often. I cracked today and got a milktea with my lunch, mostly because I forgot my lunch box at home. If I hadn't, maybe I wouldn't have stopped to get anything from the shop on my way to work. I've got to get into flavoured water. @JupiterStar gave me a
  13. Two days in, brushed my teeth both days! Only one milktea drink bought, but I mostly drank water. No chocolate though! Haven't done any yoga yet, though, but I have Tuesday, Thursday and Friday mornings free, so I'll probably do it then.
  14. Yeah, I don't know how to delete stuff
