The Elysian Knights Ride Again


Recommended Posts

We do and did! Thank you for the well-wishes!

 

Also, Farscape was just added to Netflix, I believe, so if you wanted to get back into it, you should be good.

 

I, um, possibly own the boxed set (plus the Peacekeeper Wars) and it's been available on Canadian Netflix for ages.  I reiterate:  the shame.

Behave yourself, badly if necessary.

I've been thinking about this for awhile but I don't think I posted about it.  Please forgive me if I'm repeating myself.

 

I have been paying attention to my posture during aikido classes.  Everyone watches their posture while they are working with partners (or gets reminded to).  No, I'm talking about watching my posture while I am sitting on the side as the sensei is demonstrating.

 

I noticed a long time ago that when I sit up straight I can focus much better.  When I slouch my attention tends to wander.  Back then I could sit in seiza (kneeling with my toes flat).  Now my knees can't take seiza for any length of time.  I have to sit cross-legged (anza).  Keeping my posture erect while sitting cross-legged takes a lot of core strength.

 

Has anyone else noticed this?  Do you find a difference in your focus when your core is engaged and your back is straight?

That looks fun. I haven't been too good about the course I signed up for, though, so I don't know if I'd follow through with it.

 

Also, the angry chicken dance is the dance of my people - the Angry Chickens. XD

 

When did you have the time for a course?  Heh, I just love the silly combo of aggression and the chicken dance.

Huh, I will have to pay attention and check.  Food for thought indeed.

Hey guys.  I am alive.  After joining Overeaters Anonymous, I have discovered that I have a pretty significant eating disorder.  So with that in mind, my focus has been on recovery, not diet and fitness.  I am not doing the NF challenge right now, and don't have much to contribute to you guys', as mine is not a simple issue of willpower, motivation, etc, and I'm a bit startled and confused by these revelations.  I'm hoping that maybe by the next challenge I will figure out a way to create something that lets me stay in this community and get better at the same time.  I still read you guys' posts, and I miss you all!

I thought I'd had time... earlier. That did not prove to be the case.

My oh my. Sounds like something big happened there. Glad you caught it. Hopefully we can help you somehow with undergoing your treatments/action steps/what have you.

 

Take it a step at a time. That's all you can do.

Yay!  I am glad that you are alive and figuring out what you need to do to have a good life.

 

I understand that eating is tangled up in all sorts of emotional issues. I hope you can sort that out and move forward.  I have confidence you can do it based on all the progress you made in the last two challenges.  We are here for you if you want to talk thing out or just vent your frustrations.

Self-knowledge is a very good thing. Let us know how it goes.

Team threads seem to still be for the last challenge but I will set one up if people are so inclined.

Hi all, I'm finally back from travelling to see my family.  I had 28 hours of road trip time this week.  Sorry for the radio silence.  I had limited screen time.

 

Yes, please set up the team again for the next challenge.  Let's see if we can also get some new members since Fae and Techmom have gotten busy with other things.  Hopefully they will come back sooner or later.

Cool, some people in the LGBTQA and Ally Safe Space thread were looking for a team.  I can drop a note in there?  Any other particular areas that could be good to drop a recruiting note?

 

We might as well continue in this thread. 

 

I don't know about any other particularly good threads, but talking to people and telling them we have room is as good a tactic as any at this point, you know? And yeah, definitely mention it to the LGBTQA and Ally folk. They need help just as much as we do.
