Jedi's Epic Lightsaber Journey


Recommended Posts

Yesterday's good food choice: instead of the bowl of cheesy potatoes that I could have easily excused to myself at work for a snack, I had a cheese stick!

Yesterday's good food choice- kept myself from eating even more unnecessary food late in the evening after dinner even though I wanted something (not needed)

Love the story! I haven't seen the new Star Wars yet. We're waiting for the DVD to come out middle of the year.

Congrats on the good food choice! That's a big difference.

Good thing you haven't seen the new stuff, I'm using nothing of it xD 

 

And yeah, it was super empowering to choose well!

Today's good food choice- put away extra chocolate instead of eating it, leaving dessert at a reasonable size

One small good choice builds into many :)

Yesterday's good choices were a bit of a struggle since my dumb self forgot my homemade lunch at home, requiring me to use money I really don't have in order to feed my face. On the up side, I managed to get decent (not excellent, but decent) foods the whole time. And I somehow managed to control my dining hall issues! I didn't have a bunch of dessert or extra food. I ate my meal, my salad and extra fruit, and my dessert, and that was IT. No overdoing it. I'm rather pleased even if I did have a SINGLE glass of fruit punch. I ended up spending like 30 mins drinking glasses of water and resisting the urge to eat more foods. Even more impressive when it's shark week which is when I ALWAYS overeat.

 

I've gotten almost all of my workouts in this week, I will probably go for a run tomorrow at home. I think I'm going to not lift weights this week, my gym at home doesn't have a squat rack, distressingly enough. I'll do bodyweight based workouts and extra yoga. Speaking of, even though I haven't done the getting up early thing every day, I've gotten some variety of stretching and yoga in every day. I think that I'm going to finish mine this evening when I go home so that I can impress my sister. 

 

I'm going to work on my 30 mins of coding today and hopefully I can fix this confusing error I've been having for a while. Very frustrating thing. 

 

And now, without further ado, some more of Aria's story!

 

Master Leia was a hard taskmaster. Simply by her being there and watching, Aria felt the need to work harder, do better. She needed to impress her master. Interestingly enough, some of the training she was doing, she was doing with the little girl, Allana. Also known as Amelia. When they were on the old ship, which Han called the Falcon, they called her Allana. Any time they were off the ship, she was Amelia. But the girl was excellent at the stretching exercises.

 

"She has a child's limber body," Leia said to her one evening after she struggled to complete something that Allana found simple, "She's a child, and she has no idea what's impossible. Also, children's bodies are naturally more flexible. Don't feel bad for not knowing something you've been doing for a month while she's been doing it most of her life." Aria smiled slightly, and kept stretching her body, trying to warm up her muscles enough that her hamstrings and thighs would allow her to touch her toes like she had a few days ago. "Stubborn girl," Leia said with a grin, "Luke was right."

 

"About what?" Aria said, stopping the stretching.

 

"The fact that we'd get along well." Aria looked up and found her master grinning at her. She grinned shyly back. "Tell me about your family," Leia said, making it sound more like a suggestion than a command. Aria grimaced slightly, but began, the calm demeanor of this familiar woman drawing words out of her that she never thought she'd reveal.

 

"My mother's name was Rhea," she began, "And I never knew her last name. She never said it around me and never told me. It was downright odd, really. But she could talk endlessly about my father. She told me that the red in my hair came from him, and that many of my mannerisms were like him, despite the fact that I was born a long time after he died. I never had any siblings, and mother... Mother almost seemed to blame me for the fact that Father never came back. Even though she knew why, part of her felt as though she should have followed him with the strangers that asked for his help. But she didn't, because she was pregnant, and she blamed me for the rest of her life. I was the reason for all of her problems it seemed. The reason her parents had sold her into slavery like they had my aunt, the reason that Father died without her by his side, the reason we had nothing. She somehow managed to put me into school, but was never satisfied with my performance.

 

"When I was 8 standard years old, she died. She pined to death, many thought. At that age, I almost didn't care, after the way she treated me like a pariah. The school, impressed by my performance, allowed me to stay on as a boarder and scholarship student. Looking back, I think that this school was the reason I was able to escape. It wasn't an excellent school, having been founded by some group wanting to help galactic literacy, but there were funds for a few scholarship students. I kept my studies up, and then began applying to schools as far away as I could. The end result was Naboo. It was as far away of a school that I could go on a one trip ticket with all of my possessions. After a couple of years there, you found me," Aria finished up her story with a shrug, but was completely surprised by the hug that Leia swept her into. 

 

"You poor child," she said, eyes looking haunted, "After losing two children, I can't imagine a mother acting that way toward her children. And I feel even worse since some of this is indirectly my fault." Aria looked at her in complete confusion. "The strangers your father left with were trying to rescue me. I was being held captive on the Empire's Death Star after Dar- my father captured me on my ship trying to smuggle plans for the ship out. I managed to get them out, along with a message to your father, who had worked with my adoptive father, Bail Organa, in the Clone Wars. Luke, Han, and Master Kenobi ended up saving me, and your father was killed by his former apprentice, Darth Vader." Aria's eyes were huge.

 

"Um, I'm sure being held captive by a Sith Lord is a bit worse than what I dealt with." 

 

"Well, either way," Leia said, "It's done and over. And just so you know, we're approaching our first stop- Corellia. We need parts for your lightsaber!"

 

Aria smiled "Then let's go!"

Way to go on making good food choices at the dining hall! And double points for doing it during shark week-that is on master level difficulty.

I'm hoping to keep the trend going for the next couple of days :)

Obi-Wan's daughter? You'll probably laugh about the coincidence, but next weekend is my Youngest's 7th birthday and he is playing Obi-Wan. We are busy making a Death star pinata, and he has his mind set on X-wing biscuit treat, as well as a small Death star cake and tie-fighter cupcakes! Star wars for the win!

 

You made great choices and have proven you have a lot of inner strength force, to help you through each and every day!

Thanks! It's a bit of a FanFic in memory of the thousands of lost characters that happened when the Sith Lord Disney sent out it's own personal Death Star and destroyed an entire timeline

 

I grieve most for the loss of Mara Jade Skywalker.  Amazing transformation of the character from introduction to the later stories.

I have a sneaking suspicion we lost out on a lot of Star Wars (animation) story here in the backwaters... then again, as family we haven't had a tv for the last 20+ years, only watch some when we visit mil, or if it is a series bought by the dvd shop (and they are usually up to date?).

Okay, so short version. I have been SO BUSY during my spring break. My workouts have been beyond iffy, but I've made one good choice every day. And I've gotten my stretching and yoga in every day. I'll probably get two or three out of my four workouts in this week, but thanks to the MASSIVE NEWS at the bottom of this post, I'm definitely going to be working SUPER HARD on my fitness!

I was devastated in both of the manners in which we lost Mara. Devastated.

This is all novel stuff :) I read a ton of the novels before they made them no longer canon.

Thank you! She was amazing. 

 

Hey, congrats regarding that thing on Facebook!

Thanks!!! I am SO EXCITED

 

So, if you're confused about Tank's last post, he was awesome enough to let me announce to you guys!!

 

I AM GETTING MARRIED <3 <3 <3

 

My boyfriend (Fiance!!!) proposed to me yesterday!!!!! AHHHHHHHHHH!!!! I am so excited!!! We're getting married next April, a couple months after I graduate. My ring is absolutely beautiful, though I'm going to have to get it resized since it's about two sizes too big. But it's beautiful :) I love it! And I'm SUPER overwhelmed by the whole wedding planning thing. But in a good way. I'm still slightly in shock. Though after over four years, I shouldn't be xD

 

So yeah, that's been my life this week.

Edit: and good going on the good choices - and maybe don't have the ring resized just yet, because it sounds like you are going to work so hard, it might have to be made even smaller ;)

I'm so happy for you!
