    It's weird how our mind works, isn't it?

    Definitely! My favourite scene is...

    Well, yeah, I try to do a break every 30 minutes and walk down to the cafeteria, talk a few words with friends, and walk back up to my office. But often I'm too busy or I simply forget. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Had one of my typical bad days: Stomach problems, dizziness and chest pains. But! I didn't have a panic attack, (as would have been normal six months ago,) I did Yoga, was semi-productive at work and ate more or less reasonably.

    Somehow I have the feeling there should be a Nerd Fitness blog post about this... Maybe check the usual suspects for advice: Mark Sisson, Tim Ferriss, etc. There should be some strategies to find... Don't be!

    Week 0 recap Well, I had a pretty good start for this challenge. I'm still a bit spacey and disorganised, but I'm on a good track. Mal's Quest: Working on my thesis daily works mostly well. At the weekend it was hard, which isn't surprising. Next Monday I have a meeting with my advisor and I have to finish the final report for our iPad project. So, a lot to do this week, and I hope that I can actually make some progress on my thesis. Zoe's Quest: Exercising is good so far. I'm not 100% comfortable with kettlebell swings yet, but I like them. Running is a chore at the moment, because I'm so out of shape. But with the nice weather here in Munich right now I hope to improve significantly the next weeks. Walking 10000 is incredibly hard! I managed it twice last week, which is something at least. Unfortunately, I have two days a week at which I come home very late from work and I rarely have enough motivation for a "long" walk afterwards. And on the weekend It's hard, simply because I lack the trip to work. But! On all days I managed to walk more than 8000 steps and on 5 out of 7 days it was... well... I.e. I don't have to do much more to reach my walking goals. So.... maybe running in place 10 minutes every day...? Book's Quest: Dieting is... okay? I think I should try to slightly reduce my carb intake, simply as it makes calorie reduction much more easy. Let's see... My discipline overall seems to improve. Meditating needs a better rhythm; but playing video games only after being "productive" went really well. Right now I'm playing Rocket League, which means I could sink hundreds of hours into it to improve and there's no end to it as it's a purely multiplayer game. This task keeps my in check pretty well. Kaylee's Quest: Practising the guitar is relatively hard; don't know why. But it's fun and I improve slightly every time. Studying Go is pretty easy right now; especially with dozens of books and phone apps at my disposal. Reading when very well the zeroth week. But as The 4-hour Body is a real door stopper I might not take it on my way to work as often as I want to. ------------------------- Can't wait to be awesome this week!
  8. Welcome!! As far as I see it, most join as what they identify. In the end it doesn't really matter, I think. The fundamentals are the same for everyone and when you have enough experience you do your own thing anyway. But, tbh, at the moment I don't know how much sex-specific there is. Maybe the calorie amounts... There is a LBTQA thread/subforum somewhere, if I remember correctly, and the people there might be able to help.

    I have some troubles keeping track... I often note +1 for a task, but forget to actually increase the progress bar. Hm... Had a pretty good day, but working for my thesis was rather hard during the weekend.

So far it's a bit clickbait-y, but if you're used to Tim Ferriss' style, it's nice to read. Basically he says: "Here are some interesting ideas, why don't you try them? They are great, because they work for me."

    Definitely! ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Stupid day... Brought my car to the garage for general maintenance and tire changes. Unfortunately, a marten has chewed through the heating line and the cooling liquid is leaking, too. (I hope I translated everything correctly...) So that's a couple hundred bucks more than I expected... And throughout the day I felt very dizzy and lightheaded. I even had to cancel plans with my girlfriend. But, of course, the moment I got home it was fine again. Still mostly psychosomatic... But considering all this, the rest of the day went great. Mal's Quest: Thesis: ||||III - IIIIIII - IIIIII - IIIIII - IIIIII Spent the day at work testing and bug-fixing our iBook. And combined with all the other things I hadn't time to really work on my thesis.

    Didn't sleep too well, mainly because of my stomach problems. But I was semi-productive.
