    Snarky Is Happy to Be Here

    I can't tell you how much I love this. Life is way too short to have any negative feelings towards your body. It's the only one you'll ever have so by all means try to change it, but love it to heck too <4

    Snarky Is Happy to Be Here

    Workout is done! I did one set of lower body strengthening today, followed by ten minutes on the exercise bike. All the muscles surrounding my hips are really weak. I have been a terrible partner in this relationship with my body because I've been so angry with it for over a decade now. I think it's well past time to call a truce and work together

    I will be sitting in this dark corner (we all know there innumerable more) sipping various colourful cocktails for the duration of this challenge. By Theon's dearly departed penis, it will be a good one.

    Terah's quest for cute animal gifs

    Monday Perfection: I did my lifting in the morning, focused on choosing low carb foods. I was fairly hungry, so I allowed myself to eat. I felt great. Tuesday My dance teacher is on vacation this week, so no dancing today. I dis get a lot of work done. Stayed low carb and felt good. In the evening I didn't feel so great anymore and was really craving something with more carbs, so I ate. I felt good again. Wednesday Shark attack. I wanted all the carbs, so I ate them. I was satisfied much sooner than I was expecting so I didn't eat all the things. No workout happened because stupid sharks. Thursday Same as Wednesday
  7. The rest of us can dress up as bridesmaids, but you get to choose the dress?

    Brogo: beats for brainz

    To be fair, that does sound like a good time.
  9. I was about to say yes then I remembered the shoulderpad thing about the 80's so maybe I will look better but everyone else will look more powerful so still no. How about I wear that dress and everyone else is allowed to wear an almost as nice dress (10% less nice) but they're not allowed to shower for a week beforehand.

    [Sloth] C'Mon Let Me Ride

    Yeah, it was a toss up between the two for me. When I was 17 I joined a Soul Calibur tournament where the loser had to take whiskey shots. I had never played the game before. All the other players were much older men who were more experienced in both the playing of this game and the shotting of the whiskey and I have never been the same since. How is the ridin' going Sloth?

    Urgan Shows Up, Does the Thing

    4/17/2019 Wholesome 武士道 Justice/Rectitude Within: Samurai Don't Complain (in class) There was whimpering at the first demonstration of maegeri kokyunage (front kick timing throw), but it was from pure fear for my knees. I stopped when it came time to start actually doing it. Without: Giri Floss - 16/35 Scrub walls/cabinets Clean kitchen table Clean toilet Clean shower Clean sinks Clean kitchen counters Mop floor Courage Within: Crying in the Dojo Aikido - 7/10 Without: Keep heizen and carry on Gun research - 1/3 Audit Grocery Bill - 740 (880), 276 (388) Audit Power Bill - 116, Benevolence Within and Without: Love Learn first-aid - 51% Donate Check up on people - 8/10 Dad Training - 3/5 9:00 Dinner - 5/10 Cat food/water - 8/15 Cat grooming - 1/5  Politeness Within: Rēsetsu Curse Count - 3 Concentration Under the Bar - 7/19 Without: Do 道 Shodo Research - 2/2 Drawing Japanese Characters - 3/2 Watch an Anime Instead of Napping Maybe Nutrition  2450 Calories. 2491 : 2406  I could be described as a newly post-hibernation bear being confronted by a militant vegan about its omnivorous lifestyle in the gym when people INSIST on talking at me. Not once but TWICE PFM came at me when the first time I failed to react sufficiently. Apparently I am great, just like the 4 other people who entered the gym before and after me. Every. Single. Day. For the last three years. I replied back with a cold deadpan "Thank you." to the PF in a way that begs him to take the hint and stop, but it's going to get ugly pretty soon if he persists in obliviousness. Raise your hand if you want to be forced to be fake polite before 7AM. Not the kind of empty politeness of greeting someone in passing, but you actually are very annoyed by this person but pretend you aren't because that is the fastest path to be rid of them. This made it difficult to keep my focus on the task at hand, because I am processing how to go forward from this point. I'm honestly not sure, I just want to work out and people won't let me. Anyway. I Did the Thing hardcore with rolling over le retirement plan on time, did a lot of work on first aid training, AND did some reading of the beginner's gun guide I posted above. I ate all the food, as I have been doing this week so far, and my energy is up. Hilarious given this is the week I had projected my strength/energy to be at its lowest by way of Hormones. I took my magnesium supplement down from two pills to one and have noticed I have more frequent (decent) BMs lately. Correlation is not causation, but I haven't had any increase in headaches (yet), so I'm calling it a good move. I ended up behind my typical Aikido partner in traffic on the way home, honked (she ignored it, thinking it wasn't for her...), then texted and she figured it out. That was pretty funny. ZERO CURSING HAPPENED AT PARENTS' HOUSE. We did in fact do the maegeri without destroying any knees in the process. Afterward we all threw money at a classmate to fund a birthday gift for Sensei next week that includes a hakama-clad bobblehead which looks eerily like Sensei. When I got home, I reviewed Jo Kata II (it appears I am remembering it correctly without hiccups at this point) and maegiri. I'm going to need to step up my video review if I want to retain the ones I have already done. Japanese lessons are still happening with an unbroken streak of ~120 days. Watched an episode of Amanchu then went to sleep. I wish I could print this out like a voucher and cash it in with Life.... You gotta love a site that doesn't take itself so seriously.

    JessFit goes full warrior

    We got over 50 inches of snow this winter... I have ZERO desire to shovel more than 4 feet of snow. It is a really good workout, but it crushes the soul.

    Tova is feasting on life

    After fumbling around for a long time, I think I finally figured out my race! In the past I've considered myself a halfling, cause I'm short. Not really stocky like a dwarf but not lithe either. I like to stay in my hobbit hole. But it never really fit with me. Last fall I went to Oregon. We drove all over - Portland, Willamette wine country, Crater Lake National Park, the coast - and one night we stayed in the Columbia River valley at this fantastic AirBnB. It was a teepee in the woods, overlooking the river. Heavenly. The host had a sign up in her potting shed that said "deeply content rooted warrior" and holy shit did that hit home. It's been my mantra ever since. When hiking Muir woods last challenge, Mr. Vibrant and I were talking about naiads and dryads (like ya do). And then it finally hit me today - I'm a dryad. But not a wimpy, weak, damsel kind of dryad. And not one who's lifeforce is tied to a certain tree and can't leave that area. It's some kind of adventuring variant dryad. I'm fiercely protective of my home and what's mine. I'm strong and grounded. I'm calm and a haven for critters. I belong in nature. Pics of Dryads
  15. What if we compromised and everyone else wore 80's style thrift store wedding gowns? Although, if you wore the dress you posted, you'd still look at least 10% better than everyone else.

    Challenge for life, challenge for now [Manarelle]

    Yup, hence the "challenge for life." That's never going to end. The hole punch did, indeed come in last night, and I was able to get the holes punched, edges burnished, and the first coat of finish on. I'm debating on whether/ how to make the conchos on the belt in the comics. Well, no, scratch that. After reviewing pictures, it's pretty consistent that they're there. And an extra side strap. So I'm not done yet. But! I'm still pretty happy with how it turned out so far. The dye I got said "medium brown," but turned out to have a nice reddish finish when buffed. Below are progression photos, and an extra of little leather curls/ springs that form when your edging goes well (I thought they were nifty).
  17. NO. I should maybe have made this clearer but the important thing about the wearing of this dress is that I have to look at least 10% better than anyone else. This I like, it's like swinging but with the addition of a depressing lifetime with someone who is unsuitable. That's so postmodern, I dig it. Who's in?

    Infinity - a space ninja

    I went on a really nice walk today with my parents and sister, 7.6k in 1.5 hours. Which is a pretty fast pace, though it was on v flat ground for most of it. It didn't really do anything to remove my fears, but I'm resting in that my mother, sister, and God will all be on that hike with me, and even if it's long and doesn't fullfill the purpose of a hike being fun and beautiful, it will be a memory to share with them and the others I'm going with. I also bought new shoes before heading out today, and did a bit of a trial run. I think I'm going to add (or switch) the sole to one that I've already used, or one that's a bit softer. My feet feel really raw, and I'll also have to switch up the socks as well. It feels like so much planning for just a two day walk, but I know I'll regret it if I don't.
