And so another thread for whats probably the longest respawn ever (man what a lag ;) )

So for this Challenge I decided to start working on my mornings and my morning routine like I tried last month but this time I plan to do it more slowly and take in account what worked and what didn't worked:

 

Challenge 1: Starting the day right

Last time I tried to do a "how my morning should be plan that in retrospective totally failed this time I'll try to reverse engineer my mornings and based on that will try to incorporate changes.

 

First week starting today till 18th February

- Write down how the mornings actualy happened (when did I get up, what did I do, how was I feeling and so on)

 

Second week:

- monday try to create a weekplan that sets a wake-up time for every day and has 3 morning workouts in it

- track how the days actually go

 

Third week:

- depending on the second week, when the workouts worked and I see that there has been free time. Try to add meditation to it. If not try to make week two goals work

 

Last week:

- track and evaluate, make goals/plans according to evaluation

 

Challenge 2: Run to the Hills

RUN FOR YOUR LIVE!!! (sorry not sorry ;) since Maiden are the best band ever)

I still have time to train for the marathon without getting in panic mode and to keep it that way I have to start training sooner rather than later. So for this challenge there will be some running goals

- Find a running rout (20min) near my place and near my girlfriends place

- Look for running groups that could fit my goals/tempo

- Try if thursday running training can be part of my weekly plan (and where to move the movie day in that case)

 

Challenge 3: A good breakfast

I started preparing my breakfast sandwich in advance (using self made mayo (still needs improvement) and sandwich toast) and it's definitely and improvement on my wallet as well as my daily calories nonetheless there's still work to do

- find a paleo bread alternative

- prepare breakfast in advance

- find out if putting fruit into my breakfast will increase my morning

- reduce coffeee and more importantly coffee sweetener

 

Challenge 4: Community work

I really enjoy the supportiveness of the NF community so I want to participate in that again

- Follow 2 NF rebels (will follow @Jonesy and 1 more ) and check in and leave a supportive message from time to time.

- update my thread at least twice a week

- participate in the mini

 

So new goals, hoping to get more results than last time ;) 

Still need to work out how to give points for this challenge, if you have good ideas please let me know :)

Like your goals and that you put some improvement steps in each of them, especially a kind of cycle into the first one : plan -> execute -> review -> plan again etc.

 

Reading 'Challenge 2: Run to the hills' immediately got that song stuck in my head. Thanks for that. Now I have to play something even harder loud on my headphones to get rid of that...

... or maybe I enjoy it a little while longer... RUN FOAR YO-HUR LI-HIIIVE! B)

...BA-DA-BA-DAM...BA-DA...

 

Regarding breakfast. Sometimes I cut up some vegetables or use some dinner leftovers (that are too small to be a full meal) and mix it with some eggs and make an omelette for breakfast. Pretty filling and yummy. My wife likes to make smoothies in the morning so I have enough fruits (and again vegetables). That made it easy for me to stop eating bread... until my wife started to bake her own bread with nuts and seeds and... and I'm hungry again. Enough of that.

 

Regarding books:

 

- I listened to the audiobook version of 'the 4 hour work week' and the man had some good points and advice. Didn't and never will follow all of them, but it was interesting.

- Different but also inspiring is the book 'Rich dad, poor dad'. Listening to this and the other (audio)books by the author I came to the conclusion that he made a lot of money by selling milllion of copies of the same book telling the same things over and over again. But again, there are some really interesting things in it.

 

And since you are a fellow German: Viel Erfolg bei deinem Respawn!

I like the break down for your morning routine goal. I've found in the past starting slow helped me remember what I was supposed to be focusing on rather than all at once.

Hello fellow German :)

and thank you for the book recommedation will definitely look at it to determine if it should go on my list. Actually I don't know yet what direction I want to go into workwise so I choose the books that I want to read by looking at the synopsis and than try to sense if it feels relevant to me.

 

The thing with breakfast is I'm not really a morning person. I get up early but I like to have as many things prepared as possible so cooking in the morning only happens on saturdays so omelettes are to much work for me but thanks for the idea :)

Thank you. I tend to be a all or nothing person so going slow is hard for me but I think it will be the more sustainable solution. Stole some ideas from your challenge though ;)

Welcome back. I like the idea of building a morning routine to see what works instead of trying to force it. Hopefully this helps.

Thank you :) I like the idea as well..let's see how it works with my special morning attitude XD

That's actually a really good idea, I think, starting with morning routines.  Kind of like how diet coaches tell you to start with breakfast or dinner or whatever meal.  Do you think you'd prefer a hot breakfast?  They tend to keep hunger away longer.  For a paleo option, crustless quiches keep well and can be filled with vegetables.

 

We watched The Producers (both versions) recently, so I've had Springtime for Hitler stuck in my head for days.  I don't know whether to feel like a horrible person or not.

You can also make egg "muffins" in advance and freeze them. Whip up some eggs, chop up some veggies, toss them into muffin tins, and bake. They microwave quickly and since they're made in muffin tins you can portion control really easily. 100% bread-free. 

 

Good luck!

Crustless Quiches sounds good and will be put on the to try list :) I'm to lazy to cook in the morning so it has to be prepared cold breakfast or something I can heat in the microwave :)

CHALLENGE UPDATE

 

So what happens with the respawn? It's still looking okay, definitely better than last time but of course the busy life got kinda in the way ;)

I went to a little 4 day vaccation with my girlfriend in Madrid last week so in that time we didn't realy had a morning routine in the way that I planed it to be but more like 1) sleep in 2) eat unhealthy at the breakfast buffet 3) walk the whole day. So unhealthy food was eaten, a lot of walking was done and most importantly a lot of sun was enjoyed. Definitely worth taking a break to the challenge.

Of course the monday was kinda used after that vaccation (because Madrid was feeling like summer and Berlin was still cold and ugly), that's why I moved my trainings so that this week there have been only two (but those are already done). but I did a hughe step to make training more automated by changing the payment for the gym. Now it will be done automaticly so I think I will go regularly because it's payed and it would be money wasted if I don't go. Also the Gym only offers morning training on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from next month on so moving dates will no longer be possible. So less decisions to take :)

Running isn't working out yet, need to put some reminders around the house to get the panic going I think (maybe a Hugh calender counting down to the marathon or something like that >_<)

Eating is okay but can still be improved. Overall it's going better than last time and that's okay for me.

I decided to not do points but use colors to show how the challenge goes since all goals are kinda hard to judge on a point scale at the moment.

 

Challenge 1: Starting the day right

Last time I tried to do a "how my morning should be plan that in retrospective totally failed this time I'll try to reverse engineer my mornings and based on that will try to incorporate changes.

 

First week starting today till 18th February

- Write down how the mornings actualy happened (when did I get up, what did I do, how was I feeling and so on) Kinda, enough to work with it.

 

Second week:

- monday try to create a weekplan that sets a wake-up time for every day and has 3 morning workouts in it Managed to plan 2 workouts, no dayplans yet because my days need to have a little room for wiggling at the moment

- track how the days actually go Not yet, need to write stuff down

 

Third week:

- depending on the second week, when the workouts worked and I see that there has been free time. Try to add meditation to it. If not try to make week two goals work Meditation will have to be done in the evening since I figured I don't need it in the mornings. thats pretty good because my girlfriend and I manage to start the days in such a positive way that I don't feel like I need to meditate mornings to start the day refreshed and without stress :)

 

Last week:

- track and evaluate, make goals/plans according to evaluation

 

Challenge 2: Run to the Hills

RUN FOR YOUR LIVE!!! (sorry not sorry ;) since Maiden are the best band ever)

I still have time to train for the marathon without getting in panic mode and to keep it that way I have to start training sooner rather than later. So for this challenge there will be some running goals

- Look for running groups that could fit my goals/tempo Nope

- Try if thursday running training can be part of my weekly plan (and where to move the movie day in that case) Will join thursday trainings in March :)

 

Challenge 3: A good breakfast

I started preparing my breakfast sandwich in advance (using self made mayo (still needs improvement) and sandwich toast) and it's definitely and improvement on my wallet as well as my daily calories nonetheless there's still work to do

- find a paleo bread alternative Found alternatives but haven't tried those yet

- prepare breakfast in advance Most of the days yes, on the others I cooked in the morning

- find out if putting fruit into my breakfast will increase my morning Not yet need to start doing that tomorrow

- reduce coffeee and more importantly coffee sweetener Yes :)

 

Challenge 4: Community work

I really enjoy the supportiveness of the NF community so I want to participate in that again

- Follow 2 NF rebels (will follow @Jonesy and 1 more ) and check in and leave a supportive message from time to time. Following but need to write more

And another update:

I'm trying to do NF but there's really! not enough hours in the days at the moment. but on the upside I'm having a lot of drive at the moment and I'm using it to work on improving my life as well as my health so that's a good thing and when there isn't so much time for internet thats a sacrifice I'm willing to make.

Also updated my year goals. I already like those and will probably stick with them from now on :)

 

 

Second week:

- monday try to create a weekplan that sets a wake-up time for every day and has 3 morning workouts in it Managed to plan 2 workouts, no dayplans yet because my days need to have a little room for wiggling at the moment

- track how the days actually go Kinda did, found out I'll probably best plan activities ahead and not times because I really need to adopt to how I feel in the morning

 

Third week:

- depending on the second week, when the workouts worked and I see that there has been free time. Try to add meditation to it. If not try to make week two goals work Meditation will have to be done in the evening since I figured I don't need it in the mornings. thats pretty good because my girlfriend and I manage to start the days in such a positive way that I don't feel like I need to meditate mornings to start the day refreshed and without stress :)

- Look for running groups that could fit my goals/tempo Found one and planned to try them next week

I started preparing my breakfast sandwich in advance (using self made mayo (still needs improvement) and sandwich toast) and it's definitely and improvement on my wallet as well as my daily calories nonetheless there's still work to do

- find a paleo bread alternative Found alternatives but haven't tried those yet

- prepare breakfast in advance Most of the days yes, on the others I cooked in the morning

- find out if putting fruit into my breakfast will increase my morning Tried, only thing that changes is I eat more calories. think I will focuse on improving my regular meals more but not add anything at the moment

- reduce coffeee and more importantly coffee sweetener Yes :)

Thanks @zeroh13.

 

quick update. Mornings are working out well (with weight lifting integrated into them) and can stay as they are for the moment. So the main goal of this challenge is a succes.

finding time for Nerd Fitness isn't working out as I'd like it yet but at least I'm checking in kinda regularly.

Running will need to be done this month. That didn't worked out yet :/

 

Overall the challenge was okay I would say.

 

Second week:

- monday try to create a weekplan that sets a wake-up time for every day and has 3 morning workouts in it Managed to plan 2 workouts, no dayplans yet because my days need to have a little room for wiggling at the moment

- track how the days actually go Kinda did, found out I'll probably best plan activities ahead and not times because I really need to adopt to how I feel in the morning

 

Third week:

- depending on the second week, when the workouts worked and I see that there has been free time. Try to add meditation to it. If not try to make week two goals work Meditation will have to be done in the evening since I figured I don't need it in the mornings. thats pretty good because my girlfriend and I manage to start the days in such a positive way that I don't feel like I need to meditate mornings to start the day refreshed and without stress :)

 

Last week:

- track and evaluate, make goals/plans according to evaluation Would say that this one is done so far. Of course I'll share my evaluation and plans with you guys. first of all I would say that I succesfully added trining in the morning to my daily morning routine. Over the weeks it changed from a struggle to just getting up early autiomatically and going to the gym even though I don't feel like it. So hughe succes. I'm still evaluating the time I need fromg etting up to leaving the house since that's normally 1 and a half hours at the moment and I'm not sure if I want to try to cut that down. If I find something that I'd like to get done in the mornings (or more likely can't get done later in the day) it might be worth tweeking but at the moment I'm pretty good with my morning timing.

 

Challenge 2: Run to the Hills

RUN FOR YOUR LIVE!!! (sorry not sorry ;) since Maiden are the best band ever)

I still have time to train for the marathon without getting in panic mode and to keep it that way I have to start training sooner rather than later. So for this challenge there will be some running goals

- Find a running rout (20min) near my place and near my girlfriends place I just decided to use the same track from my home as well as my girlfriends home. Will probably need to improve it but first I start to train running again.

- Look for running groups that could fit my goals/tempo Found one will try next tuesday.

- Try if thursday running training can be part of my weekly plan (and where to move the movie day in that case) Not yet really thought about that.

 

Challenge 3: A good breakfast

I started preparing my breakfast sandwich in advance (using self made mayo (still needs improvement) and sandwich toast) and it's definitely and improvement on my wallet as well as my daily calories nonetheless there's still work to do

- find a paleo bread alternative Found alternatives but haven't tried those yet

- prepare breakfast in advance Most of the days yes, on the others I cooked in the morning

- find out if putting fruit into my breakfast will increase my morning Tried, only thing that changes is I eat more calories. think I will focuse on improving my regular meals more but not add anything at the moment

- reduce coffeee and more importantly coffee sweetener Yes :)

 

Challenge 4: Community work

I really enjoy the supportiveness of the NF community so I want to participate in that again

- Follow 2 NF rebels (will follow @Jonesy and 1 more ) and check in and leave a supportive message from time to time. Nope

- update my thread at least twice a week I'm trying

- participate in the mini YES, YES YES
