    Much delayed response because I rarely click on anyone's blog XD But...

    Way to go! :D Congrats and keep at it~

    I'm thinking of picking up swimming weekly (which I think I told you before? But school go in the way. Now I no longer have school which means nothing at all on my weekends, so I've got time to kill), so hopefully I'll be thinner next time I see you. We can swap stories lol

    *thumbs up*

    Damn girl, that takes some dedication, I'm impressed and happy for you! Sorta surprised that you don't own a bikini, you should totally invest in one soon. With that beach bod, you'd totally rock it.

    And yay, another PC Meetup! Sounds like it was fun, I'm jealous. :c

    This blog makes me want to go back to working out. Ughhhh

    I couldn't say that I'm more impressed. Thats fantastic! You look fantastic but the best thing that you now have confidence in yourself and how you look. Maybe pc should pool together and buy you your first bikini as a celebration.

    Pretty much the opposite of me then who focuses mostly on cardiovascular stuff, though I do push ups, crunches, leg raises and a bunch of other exercises like that too.

    Thanks!
    Mostly weights, if I'm honest.
    I will do usually 5 minutes on the rowing machine (if they are taken, then 5 minutes on the Cross-Trainer/Elliptical at a high resistance) to warm up.
    Then I do a bunch of free weights with the arms over a yoga ball.. I forget the names of them.. uh.. dumbbell pullover? Like a chest press one? Or sometimes I will do seated row to target my upper back. So that's triceps, biceps and upper back.
    Then I do Squat presses. Then 1 Legged Bridge for my legs and glutes.
    Then a back extension, and I just started a type of crunch with the machine (dunno what it's called either.) Sometimes I will do calf-exercises or hip adductor exercises to strengthen because the podiatrist recommended them to me to strengthen my legs.

    The whole workout takes about 35-40 minutes I guess? I might skip on a few of those but I try to get them all in. I'll also go for the occasional swim instead of hitting the gym.. but I might go once every 2 weeks.

    The gym also has free classes and I tried a pilates one on Saturday which was pretty good. I enjoyed it!

    Feeling a bit shafted on Pokecommunity.

    About the matchmakers thing, maybe because it's valentines now? But anyway, I feel your pain, in reality my ideas aren't taken account of, but if someone else mentions it, they're praised by everyone! So I feel your pain...

    Feeling a bit shafted on Pokecommunity.

    Oh wow. I didn't know my idea struck you so close to the heart, Kura. Oh god, I'm not even sure what to feel at the moment. Or say for that matter, honestly.

    It is unfair that you've basically been pushed aside like that, and have other people take credit for ideas and the like. I feel for you, honestly, and it makes total sense what you're saying.

    What I honestly feel is admiration. You have the guts to speak your mind, and that in and of itself means a whole lot. And I do believe that you were better off blogging instead of going to PCQ&F, cause as Nick said, asskissers.

    I just want to say that I respect you for voicing your opinion. Do I agree with you? I'm not going to say no, cause that's not true. Personally, I haven't gone through the stuff you have, so I can't make a call like that, but I wouldn't be surprised if such issues did exist. Should something be done? Yes, possible more thought behind actions.

    I'm not sure if anything I said hit what I truly felt, cause I wasn't sure how to word them. I just feel a little bad that I sorta took an idea you had and had it go through, while yours was shot down. I really am sorry for that Kura. Truly.

    That being said, at the very least we're both working on the thread together right? =D Yay for optimism!

    Feeling a bit shafted on Pokecommunity.

    Broken Arrow,
    I appreciate your sentiments so thanks!

    Sydian, it's totally understandable to change your mind, but it's a bit silly when it happens in less than 24 hours. Being phrased weirdly or not.. if people need clarification then.. why not ask? Either way, why not try and see something good in a suggestion instead and work with that? To agree with someone else while denying me over small details seems.. almost like no thought was given to what I had to say in the first place.
    Maybe you wouldn't feel down about it.. but I do. That's why I wrote this blog. Maybe what you say plays a factor, but I don't think I (or anyone else) should be completely disregarded because the comment wasn't some fully formed structured idea to begin with.
    I already said I know this isn't being done on purpose. But IMO, the process to a solution is just as important as the solution. I think it might be something everyone can try and work on, or at least be aware of.

    Toujours and Nick, I appreciate that you can see some truth in what I say. I didn't want to post it there because.. I didn't want it to be a mess and be devalued. These are my feelings and I just wanted to make the community aware of how I felt. I think we can only try and lead the community by trying to set a better example, because I notice people try and follow trends in threads (Like if OVPers start misreading the question in the first post, everyone afterwards will still answer like the first people answered.)

    Twilight Sky, thanks for your thoughts. I feel like.. even if the suggestion was shot down completely by someone.. in that post they could at least contribute something instead. I do appreciate that most people take the time to explain why they don't agree most of the time, but then things just turns into a thread of counter arguments.

    I've posted stuff in CQ&F before about some choices or behaviour that I observed and I didn't like.. (closing threads too quickly or closing instead of moving/merging threads that seemed to be happening a lot) and it turned into a big thing that was closed with people telling me that I should've just contacted staff or higher staff to begin with without making it public because they thought I was making a mockery of staff judgement. I thought that that was what that forum was for, though.
    But I basically only didn't get warned for it because I didn't know it would get such a big reaction, and I said I wouldn't do it again. Lo and behold, I'm not posting there anymore and I go to staff specifically for something now. No need to apologize. You're more than welcome to continue my sentiments on that forum, but as for me.. this blog was just more about letting my feelings out.

    Again, thanks for listening.

    Feeling a bit shafted on Pokecommunity.

    I was struggling to find the words to reply to this blog, and really, I still struggle with it, so please forgive me if anything I say doesn't make any sense. I'll try to explain/clarify the best that I can.

    It's really a shame that this problem exists within PC. I mean, no one really deserves to have their ideas and thoughts shot down, regardless of who they are. I mean sure, the only reason an idea would ever have to be "shot down" is if it needs to have improvements, or if something was missing, or something like that, y'know? But it to happen repeatedly is kind of a fair shame. I feel that, as a community, we can definitely improve on that. Y'know, give things a chance and whatnot, don't be so extra critical of people's ideas and compare the pros and cons of things to see whether or not it'd really work.

    It's also a shame that(and I know this exists) people are actually afraid to post anything in CQ&F in the fear that it would get shot down, and it really shouldn't be like that, and CQ&F shouldn't give off that kind of environment. But this blog overall really leaves me speechless and outlines the issues that is going on with suggesting various things around the community and having them overlooked, only having them approved on a later idea. @_@; Kinda messed up, I know.

    Again, I apologize if anything I said was misleading. I tried my best.
