    What type of vodka do you favor?

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    I am very open when it comes to vodka.
    What I buy depends on what I am doing with it.

    If I am making martinis, then I buy the good stuff, like Grey Goose, Ketel One, etc. I think Absolut is a little hard on the palette for the money. I prefer Stolichnaya in that price bracket.

    If I am buying vodka to mix with cranberry juice to make cosmopolitans, or with spicy hot V8 to make bloody Marys, then I buy the best inexpensive vodka out there: Seagrams. Not around for a long time, kind of a recent product. Their gin is awful, their vodka is smooth and affordable.

    Also, I'm a hypocrite, I use Ocean Spray DIET cranberry juice to keep calories down. I take poisoning my body very seriously, especially when it comes to trying to keep my midsection in order.

    What about you?

    Thanks Halla for all your thoughts. My responses:

    When I was in public school, I was one of the kids that the gym teacher would shake their heads at, you know - the pity shake with a sprinkle of disgust. So it has been a challenge to shake that initial conditioning. Not using that as an excuse of course. I know I am a lot stronger than anyone ever gave me credit for back then.

    Yes, he's a big boy, shepherd X. Before we moved, he had our huge yard to just explore, but now he has to be on the leash and there are adjustments for both of us. I'll keep in mind it will just take time

SOOOO, let's look at the obvious motivations to exercise: (1) To look "fit" and "attractive", (2) to be heatlhy, (3) to feel good, and (4) to achieve some physical feat (e.g. running a marathon, squatting your bodyweight 25 times, etc.) or any combination of the above.

    WHY is it that you THINK you NEED to develop a LOVE of exercise?
    I want to be healthy and enjoy an active life without physical limitations. I have always been fortunate to maintain a slim build so not looking to lose weight.

    So I would say I want to feel good and be healthy paramount, with the fringe benefits of looking even better LOL!

    Quote Originally Posted by Halla74 View Post

    My body weight at 132 (so about 8 lbs less than I weight now). I am looking to increase my flexibility and tone my muscles, not build muscle mass. I want to be able to go hiking and not get winded, so the ability to perform about an hour of a spontaneous physical task without really feeling it.

    Quote Originally Posted by Halla74 View Post

    Well, there's not really a financial threshold. But I feel like I shouldn't have to rely on someone else to motivate me at this point in my life. Do you know what I mean? I don't want a personal trainer again because I only exercise to "please" them instead of myself.

    Quote Originally Posted by Halla74 View Post

    Yes, I could do that.

    Cool! I am now pondering your response. <you can hear the rocks grinding in my head if you listen closely...>

    Once my brain latches onto something I'll post back...

    We'll get something figured out for you, no worries.

    P.S. I want to kick your PE teacher's ass. What a jerk off. That's no way to motivate a kid!

    Yes, actually it is! The definition of "soft" vs. a "hard" martial art is dependent upon the style - hard is when force meets with force, a direct block or a angled strike through the technique with one's own force. Soft instead involves a redirection of your opponent's energy & momentum (as you stated), utilizing it against him and positioning yourself to advantage with an appropriate technique of your own.

    Muay Thai is a good example of the former, and Aikido is a perfect representation of the latter, using primarily the redirection of force in its technique.

    Dude. What Steven Seagal does in movies, is Hollywood Aikido. Any passing resemblance to real Aikido is coincidental.

    And there are very few actual striking movements in Aikido.

    PISS!!!

    I haven't logged onto Vent since it got "locked down."

    No Vent for me tonight. Will take my blabbering elsewhere, unless Ivy is Sooper-Dooper fast, which is totally possible because she is after all EXTRA awesome!
