  1. I hope motivation appears! But, if not, remember you can do it! These challenges aren't easy, and sometimes we need to fight even if motivation is low. But you can do it!
  2. Hey everyone, I go to the boxing gym 3 times a week. 3 months ago, my hand started to get dry/red and a bit swollen. At first, i thought it was poor hygiene of my gloves and wraps, and maybe a bacteria infected me. However, i stopped fighting for 2 months (because of a personal issue) and the problem was gone. I went to a doctor and he said i was washing my hand too frequently, and soap was attacking my hand, so i should use a less aggressive soap (and more expensive, btw). Ok, anyway, problem gone. However, i got back to boxing a few weeks ago, after the break, and my hand is starting to look weird and itch again. I'm now maintaining my equipment as clear as possible -> I'm even using alcohol and and another kind of disinfectant to clean my wraps and gloves every friday, and on monday and wednesday (the other days I go to the gym besides friday) I let them dry in my window after training. What might this be? Any ideas? Is it normal? Thanks a lot! Some pics:
  3. I'll take it, SOOOO CUTE! :3

    Everything is fine for now! I'm still eating chicken and some vegetables. I included a tomato in the mix, and i plan to "invent" some sauce later today. Let's see if it works

    Biology. And i'm now almost finished with my Master's in Education! True thing! I bought some tomatoes, mustard, potatoes, carrots and chicken. I'll try to "combine" these things and see what happens.

    Starting Again

    I also HATE doing dishes, but I did what you intend to do (washing them everyday) and it makes things so much easier! It is boring as hell, but when i go to the kitchen and everything is clean and ready for cooking, i give myself a pat on the back and say: "Thanks, past me! I won't need to clean anything before cooking and eating!"

    @Nol: Don't worry about the lecture thing: Advice is more than welcome! Feel free to say anything you think it might help - i'm really greateful! :) I think more beans might be a good idea! I'll check the grocery store to see if i can find some pre-cooked ones. @Lady Amezan: Hey, a fellow teacher! Exactly, i miss some flavors, and that's the hard part! Third day and, for now, everything is working ok!

    About carbs, yeah, i'm confused, but maybe i should try to increase the quantity a bit. I'm feeling too hungry. About cooking stuff, i use a prepared seasoning mix (salt+pepper+garlic) and some onion. I wouldn't be able to eat it without season, it's not really that good. Do you have any recipes you might suggest? Thanks a lot!

    Actually, that's a problem - i just ate dinner, and i'm already hungry. I don't usually eat carbs because I'm too lazy to cook rice. As for bread, after all, is it healthy or not? Maybe i should put my veggies and chicken inside two loafs of whole bread? Some guides say that i should avoid carbs like hell, especially during the night, so that's why i stopped eating bread. :X Btw, aside from the hunger i'm feeling right now (will eat a bit more later, some iogurt maybe), Day 2 has been a success: German, Boxing (cause i missed yesterday, it was raining, so i went today), diet... everything is working for now.

    Danke! I still don't know enough to start a conversation without relying on Google Translate, but thanks a lot Right? Burgers are awesome, but they are sooo bad for my health in large quantities . I don't have many recipes (i'm a disaster in kitchen and, quite honestly, i'm lazy). During lunch, i eat in a restaurant near my place, which has a reasonable price and the food is great, so I always grab some meat, beet, carrots and beans, and change one or two things depending on the menu of that day (today i added some corn, tomato, broccoli and half an egg. Nah, it's not much, i grab a bit of each thing ). My problem is during the night, where I can either cook or order unhealthy stuff. What I am doing is quite simple: I cook some vegetables (usually broccoli and/or carrots, and i frequently add some cabbage) and then i use just a drop of oil to prepare some chicken. It's not a "healthy feast", but it is working for me for almost a month now, and it certainly kills me slower than burguers and pizza. Recently i noticed i was still hungry after eating dinner, so i have increased the quantity of chicken i prepare. It worked yesterday - i wasn't totally "filled", but i felt that it was enough. Danke dir auch.
