  1. Intro Have a list of things you want to do for the year of 2019? Want to end every week the entire year with a feeling of having done something meaningful? Come join us in this PvP where we check one thing off of our TODO list every week during 2019! Rules Pick something from the TODO-list, and do it! For every week I'll pick a "TODO of the week". Complete a task and tell us what you've done - 10 points Write about what you did (at least 50 words) - 2 points Post a photo of what you did - 2 points Post a video of what you did - 3 points Post a video where you show and tell us what you did (vlog) - 5 points Completing the "TODO of the week" - 5 points The points add up, so if you both post a photo and a video and you tell us what it is you did you earn 15 points (10 for doing it, 2 for the photo and 3 for the video) For some flexibility I'll allow anyone to complete two tasks in a single week. I'll also let anyone do the same task twice, if they want. Any more than that and no extra points will be rewarded for the additional tasks. I will also not award points for any more than 52 completed tasks. (The reason for the "TODO of the week" is that it's more fun if we all do the same thing, and get to compare what we've done) Full credit to @Arkania for the idea and the initial list

    How do I do that without it being weird? Suggestions anyone? I don't even buy flowers for my wife...

  5. I struggle so much with this! Happened just yesterday when my wife didn't want to finish her glass of wine. I grabbed it and gulped it all down, just because I didn't want to pour it down the drain. I had definitely already had my share of wine, and didn't need any more. In fact, after that extra glass I didn't feel too good physically. Mentally I was fine.

    That's too bad It's a privilege I have I guess I take too much for granted.

    You could find a balcony to sleep on (one with a roof). Or pitch a tent somewhere. And it's not too cold if you just put on some clothes and a warm cap

    TODO 2019 PvP [Jan 1 - Dec 29]

    Task completed Took my sleeping pad and sleeping bag out in my garden at about 11:30 (and asked my wife to come with me to take a photo ) The weather was good enough, at about 9C and no rain. But just before I fell asleep I could first hear small raindrops hitting my sleeping bag, and then I could feel them in my face. I started thinking about giving up and going indoors instead, but before I managed to reach a conclusion I was already asleep Woke up at about 3, needing to pee. My sleeping bag was dry, so I guess it must have stopped raining pretty soon after it started... I found a bush and did what nature called for, then I crawled back in to my sleeping bag. At about 6:30 I was awaken by rain hitting my face. It was already very bright outside, and I wasn't very tired, so I decided to take a photo of my raindrops covered sleeping bag, and then go inside to start my work day. This was the first time sleeping under the stars with rain in the air. And it even did rain a little bit. And I was fine! Wouldn't want to do it if I had to spend more than one night outdoors though, since I wouldn't be able to dry out the bag before the next night... But thanks to the overcast weather it never got cold, so that's a plus! The experience made me want to get a bivy sack. Something like the one below. (There's extra fabric to cover the face if it's raining) https://www.outdoorresearch.com/ch/en/helium-bivy/p/2428280008222 All in all a great night that I hope to do soon again!

    Alright, the weather looks to be in my favor. I think tonight is going to be the night I sleep under the stars

    I need to try spatchcocking my chicken next time too. Grilled a whole bird the other day... After 1.5 h it was still too red for my liking closest to some bones, but I was starving, so I ate it anyway... Spreading it out like that should hopefully speed up the cooking a little bit. And what a great idea to put some potatoes and veggies next to the chicken. I bet they tasted great cooked in all that flavorful fat!

    I'm really happy about this weeks challenge. We had such a beautiful morning today, that I actually did think to myself that I wanted to spend a night under the starts. And then this challenge gets chosen. Gotta mean something!

    Right... Anyway, here goes As I already wrote I got off to a better start than I could hope for with surviving my flight home on sparkling water and wine. When I got home I stocked up on some herbal teas. And between that, regular water and sparkling soda stream water I didn't have much problem getting through the work week. This past weekend I went to an amusement park with the family and some friends. That meant getting up really early, having breakfast on the road, and buying food at restaurants all weekend. For an early rise in particular I want a strong cup of black tea to wake me up. But none of that! And it was super cold too, so the warm tea would have been really nice. But since I couldn't have black tea I couldn't be arsed to drag a thermos with me with hot water... So I made do with plain water. And when eating out I just had water mostly, except one time when I had Sprite Zero. These are the teas I've been drinking. The left one is mint and nettle (ginger, rose hip, fennel and anise). The other boxes I'm sure you can read what's in them So, did anything good come out of this? Well, my body got a break from caffeine and theanine. And I drank much more water than I usually do. So that's good. And I found some pretty tasty teas to mix it up with. So, all in all, a great challenge

    Here's my version! I was too lazy to boil "protein ovals", so I just stirred in an egg white. Doesn't make for a very good presentation, but ohh so convenient Frozen spinach and celery for some greens. Great success!

    Thanks for the recipe! I'm more of an egg-and-beans for lunch than for breakfast kind of guy, but no matter when you eat it, it sounds delicious!
