So from what i understand your body is paralyzed when you lucid dream but yesterday i was in a lucid dream and my eyes kept opening like i was waking up. Of course i can't be a 100% sure it wasn't just part of the dream but it felt real. So is it possible to temporarily open your eyes while lucid and still continue dreaming?

It would be my guess that it was not your real eyes that were opening. It could have been a new dream, or let's face it dreams are just that strange! It may have been what is considered a "False Awakening" where you only think you have woken up.
I have had similar experiences...and they are very convincing! _________________ I'm goin' in...

Not necessarily. I had a lucid a long time ago(one of my firsts) where I was falling through the air, and my real eyes opened when I tried to take in all of my surroundings. I had a strange dual-reality moment in which I was staring at my closet in a dark room and at the same time feeling the breeze on my face as I fell towards the sunlight landscape. Search "skydiving" under my username.
I'm pretty sure its possible to be in a lucid dream state and momentarily open your physical eyes. Even open-eye visual hallucinations can happen I think. Sleep paralysis is never 100% effective. Sometimes your muscles will still make little jerks. Its difficult to say whether you opened your physical or "dream" eyes though.
