Each one of the tasks for this trial must be completed every. single. day. No exceptions, no excuses.

 

This is one of the best ways to build discipline, with a consistent daily habit. I'm really glad you've returned. Let me know if I can help in any way.

I am happy to answer any questions that I can

 

I don't so much have questions, rather I find it bizarre how often 'Germany' comes up in conversation.  A woman I was in love with is heading to Germany.  Another person was going to flee to Germany after Trump's election. Another friend was visiting Germany.  When talking about an art program, a teacher mentioned Germany.  And I've wanted to look at lots of historic castles in Europe and my brain gravitated to Germany BEFORE all of these other times Germany came up.  I'm looking forward to any info or pictures.

but I also tend to be an extremist and and all-or-nothing kind of person.

 

Perfectionism can often be more hurtful than helpful. There's nothing wrong with having all-out-give-it-everything drive, but the "or nothing" part can be a problem.

This past week was TERRIBLE. I don't know if it is the stress of traveling and a new life style finally hitting me, the diet change (I eat with the family here), or just my body freaking out, but it has been one of the most physically and mentally draining weeks I have had in awhile (minus times I have been sick, of course). My joints have been aching for no reason (I am 23 and have no history of injury), I often get headaches (once normal for me in high school, but not normal anymore), often feel lightheaded or dizzy, and I feel physically exhausted and aggravated ALL the time. I am trying to do what I can (get enough sleep, drink plenty of water, take vitamins/minerals), but so far that is not helping much.

One of my besties used to be an au pair. She said that she had a group of au pair friends she'd hang out with, kind of like an au pair support group. Do you have anything like that? If so, they might be able to help with tips on how to handle the stress of so much change all at once, since they'd also experienced it. 

 

Good luck with next week - I hope it goes better. Adventuring ain't easy...

I never can decide how often I want to do these updates. Every day? Every other day? Once a week...and then I just don't choose and half the challenge goes by before I do anything, haha. 

 

If we don't hear anything every week, we'll nudge you for an update. :)

Getting used to a new schedule can be so draining! Sounds like you are doing everything right, I hope it doesn't last long!

if you ever want to go to carb heaven...go to Germany

 

Oh so you mean I'll die if I go there.  Hrm....

 

Well the beer I couldn't care less about but the pasteries...  I live in Rhode Island and a big section of the state is Italian . I'm half Italian (largest %) along with being Scottish, German, American Indian, etc.  How you describe the little shops over every corner is what it's like here.  If you go further down south, that mom&pop pizza shop vibe starts to disappear.  A main reason that if I move, it's NOT going to be in Bumfuck, Nowhere.  I want a place that has a lot of personality.  For some reason, I think Chicago, Philly, or NY in the USA.

new life style finally hitting me

 

Sounds like all of that stuff listed takes a part what you're going through.  Culture shock can sort of leave some people feeling unsure of anything about themselves as they transition to another culture.  It's like people challenge, "Do I feel this way because I was conditioned this way?" but for every question about the self.

control tends to be a bit of a hangup for me. If I feel like I don't have control over things, I tend to freak out a bit. That paired with the fact that I may or may not be an introvert with a history of depression and anxiety creates the whole, travel abroad while playing in challenge mode, effect.

 

I have O.D.D. in addition to history of depression/anxiety so that totally makes sense to me.

But I have to fight tooth and nail to focus on, and absorb, information. Again, this is not normal. I have a brain like a sponge. I absorb information quickly and easily. I consider myself an intellectual and I love learning.

My only real known allergy is mango (le sigh...I love mango)

 

How  feel about pineapple.

I knew depression and stress were playing into it

 

How I eat *creates* my anxiety/depression.  I've done experiments with it before.  When I go from Whole30 to eating random junk, it takes 2 weeks before I become suicidal-levels of depression.  It's kind of terrifying.  My first post on my current thread? *THAT* is how I felt.
