    And lots of exercising!!! Unfortunately, today was the first time in two months or so that I skipped a workout, because I was lazy.

    Mad Hatter does a bunch of climbing and stuff

    But you did it! Lots of water. And a cheap paper fan.

    Teancum Plays D&D

    Unfortunately, I never played D&D. But! I always thought you can do whatever you want, as long as the rules are properly set before starting to play. Maybe I have a completely wrong image of D&D...

    First day of my vacation. Did mamage to do a few useful things: running, laundry, meeting a friend, thinking a little bit about my dissertation. But I also played seven hours of Octopath Traveler.

    During this challenge is really, really should finish my dissertation. Just considering the text itself, I'm maybe halfway through. But there's still alot of images to produce, applications to program and data to analyse. But this should definitely be the main focus of the next weeks. Apart from that: Exercising went well the last challenge, but my diet was... questionable. But because I don't want to focus on anything else in particular, I won't for anything during this challenge: I will simply write down what I did. Except for my year-spanning running goal. Putting Everything into categories... PHD Track number of pages written for my dissertation. Track other things done for the dissertation like programming. Pretty much self-explanatory and straight-forward. Currently I'm at 138 pages and my two central theory chapters aren't done yet. And the introduction is also relatively long and important. I guess, accouting for everything, I need another 100 pages... Movement Track number of workouts per week. Track number of (additional) Yoga per week. Go running 33 times until December. Track number of steps made per day. I try to workout three times per week; callisthenics with some kettlebell exercises. I also bought a door anchor for my TRX straps and will experiment with them. As I still have some back problems I'll try to do Yoga on my rest days. As this didn't went that well last challenge, I'll try to do a shorter routine. I planned to go running 42 times until December and I went nine times in the last five weeks. So, I'm on track. Last challenge I walked about 9000 steps per days. Let's see whether I can increase that to 10000. But I won't stress myself over these numbers. Diet Track number of calories. Track number of carbs. My weight goes up, my bodyfat percentage goes down. Let's observe what I eat and things change. Low-carb and/or intermittent fasting always worked well for me. But the last few week I've been pretty hungry all day long. Maybe it's the increase in workout volume and intensity. Be as it may, let's collect some data. I track these numbers (and others) in a spreadsheet. Not sure whether I'll write them down here, too, or whether I just do tally marks to check for doing it... Hobbies Track number of times practising the guitar each week. Track number of video games, audiobooks and books finished. Playing the guitar is very relaxing for me, but in the last few weeks I was so busy that I wasn't really in the mood. But right now I don't even miss it too much. Playing video games and listening to audiobooks (while being on the move) are more or less my only hobbies right now. I want to read many, many books, too, so I'll just track what I consume this challenge. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The biggest challenge overall will be to remember that this challenge will last six weeks for me. So... Let's start writing!!!
