Funny that I don't feel proud at all about finishing so much yard work. I only realize that it´s not finished.


This is where my mind lives at times. But focusing on step by step makes it easier.

There's a saying in polish: "Better" is "good"s worst enemy. 


Perfectionism is a crappy mindset, and thinking "all-or-nothing" style only makes situation worse. I have the same problem and I fight it with help of my therapist (alone I wasn't strong enough).


You (or things you do) don't need to be perfect, good enough is really good enough.

I absolutely CAN run on caffeine and hatred. But only with a dash of milk.

woke up with a sore throat and had to cancel almost every commitment this week. Coronavirus makes every little cold a potential danger for my students and I don't want to be the person to infect others. 

Weight down to 102.2.

feel tired and will just rest today. Mixed emotions: relief that I don't have to work so hard this week and sadness because I was having a good run with my appointments and stuff..


See you tonight! ❤️

I hope you are able to do what you need to do to feel better!  (I like to drink a bit of tea with honey for a sore throat, stretch and read a book in the outdoors or bed if needed.) 


Take care!!!

You guys all made me smile!!! ❤️ Thank you for all the good wishes. They worked and I feel slightly better today. No temperature also so don't have to see a doctor. Will rest today and tomorrow and get back into things at the end of the week. Thank god I worked so much last week ... Im not in financial trouble because I have saved a couple bucks. :)

weight down to 102.1 kg. The scale showed the 101 for a second before going back up. Im so exited that I will be reaching my goal of being under a hundred kilos soon. The change of macros ( more protein, less fat ) hit the spot. Im ver pleased. Next challenge I will experiment with low and high calorie days. I cant tell that I lost weight from looking in the mirror or down at myself, but I found pictures from before keto and they tell a different story.


Off to see what you are up to! ❤️

took dog out 

1x washing done

dishwasher was filled and just finished

cleaned living room

Am happy and will just relax now.

Im leaving early again. Will be back on Sunday with my new goals,hopefully healthy and with new energy!


this challenge started with me doing a keto break and gaining a lot of weight back. Highest weight this challenge was 107kg. Today Im down to 102.1kg. Real happy about that! :)

the name giving minimalist game was played until the 15th and my apartment is completely decluttered. I got rid of 106 items big and small and today I put the last stuff on the curb to be picked up by the trash men . Happy about that too!

Read about Cross Fit here in the group and rediscovered my wish to start doing that again. Unfortunately I wasn't very good at preparing for training by doing my bodyweight circuit. I never really liked doing it and the times I did stretching I enjoyed much more. This topic will be taken into the next challenge.

Eating and hydration was on plan for the complete challenge and Im happy I got into a routine here.

Showers happened again and I don't need the goal anymore, Ive gotten into a groove here.

Meditation was taken out of my goal list as I think its completely fine to have a break here. I mostly feel mentally well and centered and am sure Ill get back into a new morning routine soon.

Walking with the dog was fun, should happen even more though. I went much further toward Mordor than I planned tough!




Today I feel better and didnt need to revisit my doctor. Had an psychiatrist appointment at noon and am happy about the good relationship I have with her. I told her that my drinking habit has become so much less of a problem since last winter. Moderation worked really well for me even when I fuck up once in a while, and I never drink a bottle of sparkly by myself anymore. So that's a win too. Will have to have an eye on my addictive behavior though. Smoking less was also not consistent but happened more often than not. Glad about that.


I decided to work again tomorrow and Saturday. Will have 2 students tomorrow and 1 on Saturday. Thats important because I need the cash. Will sleep ridiculously early today and hope Im up to it tomorrow. I have no more fever and am sure by now that my doc is right and its not the rona! :)



Thank you guys for following along and giving support! I love it here and you helped me tremendously! ❤️


I will check out your challenge reviews and be back for real on Sunday with week zero of the next challenge. Cant wait!


Bye! :)
