  1. Haha! *Is Happily Snugglebitten* Ah yes it is good to be back! Yeah, I seen the new logo was released yesterday but still no date on it. I'm thinking Fall of this year now.
  2. Welcome back, Sistah! It's good to see you. I hope the TV show brings in a lots of fans new and and old.
  3. No prob at all! Yes, I try to only eat things that are organic. Every time I get a chance I make a little trip to the Whole Foods Market or Sprouts. It really seems like all those preservatives in the food haven't done us any favors over the years.
  4. My sincere apologies folks. We've been trying to reopen the Resort that I work at for the past week due to the pandemic so I've had some odd hours but let me take a stab at them questions. @Lavandula -What do you like to eat, and drink (are you conscious about eating healthy)? Well, I usually stick with just iced tea or water with the occasional Coke Zero. Up until recently I had been on the Keto Diet but now I'm transitioning to a Mediterranean Diet because I do love my meats and cheeses....and the pasta but I do try to stay healthy. Also, I quit drinking alcohol about 7 months ago but, beforehand, I loved my whiskey. (you can blame that on my Scottish ancestry). -what do you/do you like to do to keep your body strong? I work out 7 Days a week but I alternate the workouts I do every other day. I have a Shake Day for basic dumbbell free weights and a Bake Day (get it...Shake n Bake? 😄) for cardio workouts. - what do you/do you like to do to keep your body flexible? I like to utilize my ankle weights and use them with the edge of my bed to due various leg scissors and other workouts including a little basic yoga....maybe a little aerobics to work my abs. - what do you/do you like to do for fitness? Anything that keeps my heartrate up and targets the intended areas. Nothing too harsh on the joints. I'd say that it's more of a toning routine to keep my body limber and ready for anything. - what do you like to do to destress/relax? OH, I'm a big fan of just watching my various streaming Apps like Hulu (gotta love my Perfect Strangers and Family Matters) and Netflix (way too many to count). - what kind of tv (if any) do you watch? I'm obsessed with anything to do with ancient and Medieval Times. If it's got a castle in it then I'm probably gonna like it. Right not I'm very big on Bernard Cornwall's The Last Kingdom as I really enjoy those kind of books but I like shows that make me think like The Blacklist as well. - what hobbies do you have? Other than doing lots of reading, I really like watching YouTube. Some of my favorite channels are Food Challenges like Randy Santal or Food Reviews like Ken Domik. They're both really nice people.
  5. Very Nice! I'm here and I'm bringing some pals. 😄
  6. Well, I work at a Casino Resort Hotel and they've been closed for a couple of weeks due to that COVID-19 going around. So, I'm catching up on Netflix shows and a few good books.
  7. Haha! My apologies, ladies. I had to pull a 7 Day workweek and missed this but I'd like to help in any way I can. @Lavandula I'm sure you'll like it here.
  8. Haha, yes indeed, my old friend! That was quite an exciting day. @Lavandula Yeah, I really enjoy cooking. I spend a lot of time in Whole Food Stores, Sprouts, and a few other local organic markets. It was hard to find things to begin with but after finding these places it was a lot easier. I actually made organic stuffing for Thanksgiving one year.
  9. Well, I know I sure am. I enjoy watching and competing in sports as it helps keep me relaxed and focused. One of the things that drew me into the Ren'Shai Discipline was finding other people that felt the same way. Competition is good because if makes you better.
  10. Hello to you as well! I'd be happy to answer any questions you might have and welcome! Yeah, I try to live a well rounded lifestyle. I eat organic things and do my best to keep a proper exercise routine.
  11. Right now I'm planning on going back to school and taking classes in Hotel Management. Hopefully, that'll pay off someday.
  12. Oh now that DOES look nice! Especially that pool as it reminds me of the Moat on the old forums. How's everyone doing?
  13. Hey there! I'm so sorry for being late. *Takes brownies happily* Yes, it has been a while. I've been focusing on my career (at a Hotel Resort) and studies. Hope all is well with you too.
  14. Thanks! I'll try that. I'm trying to get my old siggy working from Photobucket currently. Nice to meet you all.
  15. My apologies, ladies. I am new to this new Dragonmount format. I'll have to stop by and meet/visit with you all sometime. *winks at his Aes Sedai*
  16. Hullo hullo, dear, Aes Sedai. I felt those tugs that can only come from one lady. Plus, I can so Gateways now. Glad to see you! *Hugs*
  17. I thank you so very much! I have learned so many about both myself and life in general. What I have done is nothing compared to what I think you can do.
  18. Thanks again, you guys and gals. I went ahead and typed a little more in depth Blog here: http://www.dragonmount.com/forums/blog/33/entry-10936-my-real-life-a-memory-of-light-a-comeback-story/ I really like meal prep and staying busy most days. I got all kinds of recipes and things I learned along the way.
  19. Thanks, Fnorrl! It's been so crazy. When I started out I didn't even really have a plan. I had never been athletic I had high blood pressure, horrible self esteem. I had to have emergency hernia surgery in 2012 due to me being so overweight that the fat actually cut into the wall of my intestines. I'll spare you all the details of that but it was either lose weight or probably not wake up one morning. I tried to diet in 2013 but it failed...miserably. I was just basically tired of saying someday and being a whole bunch of talk. I was sick and tired of being sick and tired. I didn't want another diet. I needed a lifestyle change. So, I got up on February 28th, 2014, I said I'm never looking back and will not ever quit another for the rest of my life. Then, my father got bladder cancer and so I had to stay with him while eating all-natural organic foods and teaching myself how to exercise. I need to write it all down in a blog or something now that I'm back. Dad had surgery and is, thus far, cancer free. I enjoy spending time with him as I neglected and took that for granted before.
