2019 Donation Drive

It's time for our annual Server Donation Drive! We need to raise at least $650 (same as last year) to keep The Cauldron's server online for another year. Please help! Either hit that Paypal button to the right and make a one-time donation in any amount or set up a monthly Bronze, Silver or Gold Donor subscription. You can find more info in this message!

Donations as of 16 Sept 2019: $660 donated. $10 more our minimum goal! Let's beat last year's total of $99 more than the minimum!


Note: This total is updated manually, usually once a day


* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

It's time for another baby steps thread!

Exercise is my arch-enemy but, in order to nurture myself (and my Dark Flame) I need to do something.  I need to get up and move from time to time in a purposeful way that doesn't involve "let's walk to the State Store for another bottle of wine."

(Although, walking to get a bottle of wine is preferable to driving to get one, right???)

This week, I started purposefully doing (or trying to do) a series of 15 minute exercises (streamed from Amazon).  I've done one each day for three days now and while I feel like the lovely woman in the video is trying to kill me, I'm also having fun with it.  I'm also planning to add swimming back in, starting next week, 3 days a week.

So, what do you do?  Is there something you'd like to do, but haven't started?  Let's post our baby steps toward greater body movement here!

 
I was doing training physically for a job change back in March, and ended up injuring my ankle at my current job. It was a bad sprain that effectively stopped all my workouts. Now that it is basically healed I am working back into the system again- calisthenics and (ugh) running.

So, yeah.  Exercise has fallen from my list of things to do; although I know I should want to do it, I don't.  In the spirit of that bleh feeling, I thought I'd revive this thread.

Anyone doing anything interesting, exercise-wise?  Anyone want to team up to motivate one another?

Until a couple of days ago I'd been doing good amounts of exercise every day or two. It fell off a bit because my time has been taken up with christmas preparations. I'd only had it going for 3 weeks or so, took me a while to get into a groove of sorts.
I've pulled out my old Wii fit, and I'm also doing weights every 2-3 days depending on muscle strain. I'm still learning my limits.

Both my preferred yoga class and dance class were cancelled this fall, so I'm getting almost no exercise besides walking to the bus stop. I subscribe to an online yoga service that I hardly use, and they're going to have a "Yoga Tune Up" program for New Year's, so I'm planning to start that. I've never been good at keeping up with a home exercise program, so I'm hoping my husband will agree to do it with me and help keep me motivated. Other accountability is definitely welcomed. :)

I'm trying to go swimming regularly, but it's very, very tiring (especially at this time of the year), and I'm getting dehydrated (and therefore migrainey) even with a bottle of water on the side of the pool. So I'm a bit stuck at the moment. I do have a lovely swimming pool nearby, though!
