Miles has a plethora of nicknames and titles, mostly owing to the fact that he is, in fact, the king not only of me, but of all who enter the house. And he wants the attention NOW - and acts very doglike. So:

Ser Myles, Overlord, Puppy-cat, Kitty-dog and a number of squeak calls will all bring him running. Or any mention of a fetchie toy.

I say embrace the fear- it's ok to be afraid, what matters is what you *do*. Can you be afraid of failing and still follow your plan? Sure you can :-) just gotta keep breathing and putting one foot in front of the other

Thanks! Yeah I figured it would a mental thing, but I think embracing the fear is a good way to look at it. It feels like stepping into a void and hoping there are pillows at the bottom.

well the way I see it is that avoidance is generally not so helpful...so looking at the fear is kind of like saying "well, I can see there's a pillow there, there and there, but there's a few patches that might be a bit rough, so maybe I need to prepare for those a bit better" rather than blindly stepping off :) of course, that means looking into the void, which isn't always easy, but not a lot that is important is easy right?

Hub's grandma calls her cat "Kitty" or "Cat"

That is perfectly okay as long as the other cat is named Levin.

Our oldest cat Moby(like the musician), the neighbor girls call him "beautiful princess kitty" while trying to give him a flower crown.

Don't discriminate, he just wants to be pretty sometimes, not just handsome. Or the children are just seeing the world in the way that is most convenient for them. If he gets extra attention or treat, who is he to mind? 

 

 

My dog went to the vet today. He was whining because he was that excited. Probably his favorite place to go. He and I watched a dog get dragged in and I could not help but laugh as the dog beside me would have gladly swapped places.

Hey All, I'm just stopping in to say hi. I'm a n00b just working on fixing myself and getting back on the healthy life bandwagon. My goal is to become the BAMFest version of myself as possible by doing assassiny things. I'm starting small with the YAYOG pvp (yes this is my idea of small) and working to improve my flexibility fail (mah hamstrings hate me). Eventually I'd like to be able to do awesome things with my own bodyweight that I never thought possible.

 

I haven't thought of a spirit animal yet but my avatar is my whee familiar post-31785-0-97797100-1410581509_thumb.j

who's name is Tama or Dork depending on my mood.

 

Cheers!

Not so good Form:

Here ya go.   It's a link to me doing push ups when I juuuust started.   I could crank out a fair number but --- like I said elbows sticking out the wrong way and I wasn't really going far enough down.   

 

Better Form:

And this is a link to me doing push ups with slightly better form.  (Elbows pointing back now instead of straight out, and getting lower)

 

That first one is exactly how I did pushups before I read Steve's article on them.

 

Elbow direction looks about the same to me, honestly.   Much deeper range of motion though.

 

I wonder if that's an artifact of being on bars? I don't know enough about pushups to be sure.

I have taken all knowledge to be my province.

All he wants is food, sleep and cuddles. He lets the children pet him in exchange for food, I literally heard the kids say "you can't have milk without your flower crown, most beautiful princess".

I'm pretty jealous of his life actually.

Coming back after a break, I'm stoked to see how well I progress through this challenge. 

 

However I'm super nervous about failing again, so any advice on how to shake off the nerves and not be so afraid? 

 

I'm quoting this from another post, but I read it yesterday and it was brilliant.

 

 

starting over doesn't mean you failed - it just means you have another play through.

 

The first few levels will be familiar, so you can breeze through them relatively fast. Of course, sometimes you forget about that one monster that pops out and throws you off, but soon enough you'll bypass it like you have in the past with no issue.

 

Pressing Restart isn't failure. It's just a New Game.  :)

 

- quoted from Admin Chammy

 

Don't be afraid of failure you should be afraid of never trying. We all fail and sometimes epic failure, but you learn something new from every failure. The more you learn the more you know and the better version of yourself you become.

 

So GO FOR IT! and we will be here for support :)

When I was doing weight watchers, my meeting leader once said yes, and I REALLY liked it so it's stuck with me every since.   

 

"There is no failure, only feedback."

 

You gotta run with it a bit in the 'spirit of the law' kind of way, but it's true!     When something doesn't work, saying, "Now I have feedback on that..." is a lot better mentally than saying, "I failed."

 

I always like to say myself too, that the only real failure, is when you stop trying.

"There is no failure, only feedback."

 
I'm no wordsmith, the closest i ever got to enunciating that view was with a quote I then had etched into a wooden block with fire and hung over my TV.
 
It goes as follows: I win if I get up just one more time than life knocks me down.
 
So if life's knocked you down, I sympathise, I truly do. But all you need to go is get back up and get back to it just one more time. :)

Very true. I like that metaphor better. Knowing there are pillows there but preparing yourself in case you don't land on them. Yes the important stuff is never easy. Which sucks a lot, but hey, no pain no gain.
