  1. Day 7 Sunday 16k steps. I visited a friend and we went for a walk and chilled in the towns park. It was a really good day. Not much sleep. We haven't met for a while and talked until late at night. So fitbit counted 50.4 k steps this week. I want to hit 70k. So I would have needed two 20 minute exercises this week. Next week I'll try harder.
  2. Day 6 7.7k steps better than the last few days. 20 minutes Ring Fit Adventure. So I got in my first exercise session this challenge. Squats, crunches, ... I didn't sleep much Friday to Saturday. Me and a friend were gaming until 5am online. I totally lost track of time.
  3. Finally I got in a 20 minute workout with Ring Fit Adventure. I was really exhausted. But I'm glad I got in the 20 minutes, I decided to do beforehand.
  4. Day 5 3k steps. I should really try harder. And I went to bed around 5 am. I have vacation now and I spent to much time on Twitch. I tackled the scale this morning and I'm shocked. 85 kilos... 170 pounds. I never ever weighed that much. Damn.
  5. Day 4 3k steps. My day was really full. Maybe its going to be easier, when I get more sleep, get up early and walk to work. I'm taking the bike every morning, because it's faster. Walking would only take me about 20 minutes, so it's not that hard. I went to bed around midnight. After my role play session, I wanted to stream a bit on Twitch. I'm playing Yakuza Like a dragon and I really enjoy the game. I have Friday to Tuesday off, so I'm going to tackle my third goal the next days. This challenge is more a preparation challenge. I'm not going to rate it. It's about showing up, trying and getting ready for the next challenge. The last few years have been a struggle and I think it's important for me to learn taking it slow, but still doing little steps every day.
  6. Glad to hear the test was negative. Getting sick isn't fun, but at least you know better and give yourself some rest. I got sick last week and feel much better after resting, drinking tea and sleeping it off. Somehow society makes us feel guilty, when we can't give 150% all the time.
  7. Day 3 8,4 k steps... I'm getting better in standing up during work and I was a little more active than yesterday. Also I made a little longer trip than necessary to the supermarket. Today I realised how much out of form I am. I went up the three stairways to the flat and was breathing a little heavy. Damn. I'll at least try to get to bed before 11 pm, but I'm not sure. Somehow the days doesn't have enough hours. I hope I'll have some time to check out some other challenges later this week, when I have a few days off. It's an odd feeling to write here again. It's been such a long time since my last challenge. I think I forgot how to stick to things.
  8. Day 2 6k steps. I went for a little walk before going to bed. In bed 11 pm. Better than yesterday. I managed to get up early and take a shower in the morning.
  9. I'm sorry for your loss. It's all right to grief and giving yourself time for getting used to changes. Your challenge looks good. I know you can handle a lot of goals at once. Best wishes.
  10. Yesterday wasn't good 5k steps, no exercise and I went to bed around midnight. I didn't hear my alarm this morning and was a few minutes late for work. Damn.
  11. Trying to get back again. It's been 3 years. At least that's the last challenge I found in my signature. That's an odd feeling. I hope there is still anybody I know from back than.

  12. Luciana Valerosa Culming - Come back Hi, I'm back again. I'm Kate. I'm 34 years old now. I fell off the saddle again and try to get back on. So this is a respawn challenge. I would have started a week ago, but I caught a flu and then I thought it was better to do four weeks than waiting again and not trying at all. My long term goals: - lose weight (I haven't weighed in again. But I guess it's about 30 to 40 pounds I should lose. I'm a bit scared.) - get back into exercise (I used to do sports daily, now I struggle with getting in 10k steps a day) - sleep hygiene and coffeine intacke - meet some folks (corona was't good for my social life) - finance (I have an excel sheet, but I only use it every few months) - Spend time with the cats regularly (When I get depressed I don't play with them enough) - mental health, mindfulness Challenge goals: - 10k steps or small workout 5 days a week - get into bed before 22:30 (without my phone) - get the finance sheet up to date before the next challenge (I haven't updated it since March, so this will be a big task. I need to write down my expenses from March till the end of August.) And now time for some motivational music - Triggerwarning swear words:
  13. We managed to get all the stuff from our old place and now I'm spending most of the day on unpacking, decluttering and reorganizing of space. Hopefully I'll by finished by the end of this challenge and get back in February.
  14. Day 9 I'm really tired. Day 10 Today was the worst. I got in an argument wirh my boyfriend yesterday. He came home and started argueing with me and his mother for packing his stuff up. But he can't do it himself. He really struggles packing at least one boy a day. I just wanted to help. And at night his friend called again, because she had a nightmare. I hate that woman. Why can't she give us a break?! University was really hard. I couldn't stand an unfriendly teacher and decided to let it be for the day. I left his lecture and went to so a friend during his lunch break to get things off my chest. Afterwards I went to a nearby cafè and cuddled some cats while reading about Mindfulness for my presentation. That was really good. I'm so glad, I was listening to myself. Day 11 Finally I was able to sleep more than eight hours again. During yoga I realized, why I'm doing this challenge. It really helps me to focus on my yoga practise, do meditation and care for myself. I really need this to get through this emotional times.I have to get my strength back to make some important decisions in the near future.
  15. Day 8 - not enough sleep; I'm waking up early and can't get back to sleep - only 7k steps; lot of workout handling boxes; squats and carrying them in the cellar - did my Yoga and meditation 8n the morning - cooking was relaxing
  16. Week 1 summary Sleep could be better. I got >8 hours on two days. I'm going to bed late and wake up early. At least I was able to use the mornings productive. I got >76k steps this week. That's over 10k a day. So I'm confident, I could get in 10k on a daily basis. Saturday I felt sick and Wednesday was only slightly under. Caffeine could be better. Tuesday is my regular cheat day. I have to get up really early. Friday there was leftover black tea, when we had guests and I couldn't resist. Sunday was the free Vanille Cappucino incident. At least I used the left over energy to pack some more boxes. My self-care plan seems to work. I feel a little less stressed out and have more energy. I'm monitoring this with my journal regularly and manage to stay relatively calm in this busy time. What a week. For me it's train rail construction. We have a fairly good structure in Germany. But at the moment it's not easy because of all the construction sites. A big one is supposed to be finished on 8.12. That will be a relief. Half an hour less commute. Sounds tough. Do you know, what you're doing? Is there any way to prevent sleep walking? That's quite a task. Did she put back all the stuff in the right places? I'm impressed. Don't you sleep walk with closed eyes? It was all right. But I did my yoga the next morning. I'm still waiting for my book on "Aufmerksamkeits" meditation. I have read a few books from Jon Kabat-Zinn, but thats the first book of his I'm reading in German. I have to prepare a short presentation for next Saturday. (Yeah Saturday classes are a thing.) At least that's a topic I enjoy a lot and I already know some stuff about it. Let's see how that goes.
  17. Super busy until 10.11. Not sure if and when I've time to update here. Yoga goes well, caffeine could be better. I'm getting things done.
  18. Day 7 We went to the museum today. I couldn't resist a really good Vanille Cappucino, they offered for free. Getting out was nice after yesterday. In the evening we packed some more boxes and I took care of the laundry. Yoga was really nice although I'm a little asore from yesterdays chore exercises.
  19. Day 6 I got sick. So I didn't go to a party in the evening nor did me and my bf go to an art exebition, I wanted to see with him. Damn. Instead I searched for something to eat, that wouldn't upset my tummy. At least I was fine in the morning and managed to get in yesterdays and todays yoga video around 7am.
  20. Day 5 I got into christimas spirit by decorating the house. We also got rid of all the broken and old stuff. There was so much christmas decoration under the roof. I was really impressed. Afterwards I was at university for five hours. That was a really intressting lecture about SelbstBewusstSein. So it's about self esteem and beeing aware of yourself. Great! But now I'm really tired and I haven't eaten much. I guess the rest of the day I'll try to calm down, do my yoga and eat something. Geesh. It didn't help, I was stuck in the traffic often and long today.
  21. I wish you to get well soon. Nice to see another Hogwatch challenge. I'm trying to be more spirited this year, too. Usually the season makes me a little grumpy.
  22. I love soups, too. The next time I'll try to take a picture of my red beet soup and post it in the monk kitchen. It looks really nice and I like the taste of red beets. But I guess not everybody likes them.
  23. Managing my time is definitely a good idea. And if I wake up early, I at least want to spend the morning productive. 10 hours would be too much for me either. Can't imagine half the day sleeping. Bread workout xD I just shouldn't eat too much of it. I definitely have mixed feelings. It's hard to say goodbye after six years. At least he seems to like the place to. But I'm sure I'll find a lot of details that will make me miss our old place. For example there is no bathtube. And there is less storing place. A Chance to declutter! A few years ago a fell asleep quite easy. Maybe I'm spoiled. ^^ That's definitely true.
  24. Day 4 Woke up with a bad feeling again. So I tried to get that shadow out of my head with 5 Tibetans and a nice tea. Unfortunately I didn't get enough sleep again. At least Roibush with milk is a good substitute for black tea and I don't miss coffeine that much anymore. Later I did Day 4 of my Yoga challenge and 10 sun salutations. In the evening I meet up with my pen and paper group. All in all it was a nice day after all.
  25. Day 3 I got enough sleep, finished preparing my meals in the morning and went to university. There I had a nice chat with a student in my age. It's nice to meet new people, you instantly seem to conect to. During lunchbreak I did the third yoga video and read some more texts. In the morning my emotions were still a little all over the place. Maybe because of the bad dream. After yoga I felt much calmer and more focused. So the rest of the day could go on just fine and in the evening I finally found some time to relax with friends again.
