  1. I'm no expert on these things but I totally agree with the idea of us not being physically affectionate leading to supressed tension that manifests at inopportune moments. Over time if you find yourself letting that anxiety out when you're touched it won't need to come out in a physical way. You'll start to simply feel relaxed and the tension will disappear. Or maybe I'm just saying that because I'm so unaffectionate myself and that's how I'd imagine I'd be. My best advice though would be to try not to anticipate it and if it happens just let it run its course.
  2. Though I suppose it might not be as much of an acomplishment as many of the other forum members I've been gaining weight. I've always been skinny and I'm at the heaviest I've ever been. I attribute this to the research of food that veganism inspired me to do and the appreciation for natural food that veganism inspired in me.
  3. I generally don't trust anything I've seen an infomercial for.
  4. This used to happen to me when I was more in shape and I suspect it was the tricep extensions too. I would just try not to lift anything heavy until it goes away. It didn't last too long from what I remember. There's no sunshine here in NY only rain
  5. Excellent video, very smart and definitely intriguing to those who are interested in eating healthy!
  6. Food studies in general are very confusing to me and always seem inconclusive but thank you for another perspective on a debatable topic.
  7. Good luck! Just keep at it and don't let any setbacks become reasons to quit.
  8. Thank you all! I believe with your help I'm performing better and becoming more aware of how my body works.
  9. Thank you for your tips I'll have to try them out and practice. I've tried all kinds of different clothing and I've always been barefoot but it seems my skin has no friction lol. Well that's not true of course but I've been doing it on my wii fit and although I can hold the pose (they have you hold hands stretched above your head) I seem to wobble a lot more than I'd care to. It makes me question if I'm doing something wrong. I've reasoned that it must be my sliding foot distracting me and offsetting my balance. I'll try it with my foot by my ankles as you've said though and see if that gives me any further indication. The wii fit also sorta quickly moves through the poses which is a shame because some of them you really need to slowly work through to feel what's going on.
  10. I haven't tried it but that's sweet Flanders! I still seem to be having trouble with the tree pose. My foot seems to slip down my leg as I'm holding the position and it throws my balance off. Does anyone have any tips?
  11. I thought this article was interesting and logical. Maybe something to bring up next time someone challenges your food choices and questions how you can do it. "What influenced taste evaluation was what they thought they had eaten and whether that food symbolized values that they personally supported." http://www.livescience.com/health/080717-meat-eaters.html
  12. Well I do use my wii fit to make sure I'm doing some of the poses correctly, but it only helps in regards to your center of balance, which you can manage to hold with the wrong posture incidentally. It's a good general guide though and if I can feel that center when I move into poses off of the balance board it should help me. Practice makes perfect right? I'm very much a DIY type of person (not as much as others) and I enjoy learning without formal classes. Maybe it's my pride but I like feeling as though I can compare myself with people who were trained and see things in common.
  13. I'm from Long Island, towards the middle about 1 1/2 hours away from NYC. Yoga classes aren't in my options right now but I'd consider them for the future. My current take on Yoga is just using it to become more aware of how my body functions and enhancing that "mind-mucle connection" we hear about from time to time I tried the corpse pose and crescent pose last night. I'm not entirely sure I did the corpse correctly but it was a different way of feeling things so I felt like it was a positive experience I'll try again. Crescent pose was also something I'd like to repeat.
