  1. Day 365 24.03.20 to Day 372 31.03.20

    nothing much happend this week. I worked 4 times this week, went running three times and tried to stay fit on the other ones (thank god for my workout equipment at home), did my usual university courses and have a ot of homework till friday this week, cooked everyday some thing new especially learned how to do a great guacamole and an aple tiramisu but botched my next attempt at baking bread 😞

    Something I am really proud is that I was able to meditate 40min three times in a row (especially on the weekend even if it is really hard to differentiate between weekday and weekend nowadays) and that I find ways to meat new people every week (even if it is only via skype or teams at the moment) and we are already planning a meeting in person when the whole spook is over. 

    Now on to the bad things, I am gaining weight again 😞 so this is something I have to fight all the time now because getting a training routine at home is far harder than at the gym or going running also because of work, university and meeting people in front of a screen I am sitting far too much and my posture is slowly getting worse. ALso I forgot twice this week to do my daily spanish so I have to do it again after waking up like I always did when I realised my habit is sliping. The craving for gaming is strong  as ever but here cutting screentime is really a legit help and I am going to cope with it.

    All in all I am fine and healthy and I hope you and your loved ones are as well.


  2. Day 359 18.03.20 to Day 364 23.03.20

    I never thought that at the end of my first year of no gaming I have to fight every day against the urge of just trying it again. That is part of the reason why I did not write my usual dairy entries online in the forum because since my go to solution to avoid video gaming, porn and other bad habits was always either do some sport, try to meditate or leave the flat (especially the last one saved me countless times).

    Nowadays when everybody has to stay at home option number one is limited but still possible with enough discipline (still no running or going to the gym is going to be really bad for my figure 😞 ), the second option is sometimes essential for a "normal" day but the loss of option number three hurts the most because now I am locked in my room/flat  nearly 24h. I work via Home Office, I have University classes from home and I spent my freetime at home 😞. This is the reason I fear I will not write a lot of online diary entries as long as I am fighting against my urges because to counter them I started to reduce my laptop screentime immensely and do most of my things from the company computer or my mobile phone to avoid even the possiblity of gaming. Therefore I even broke my lent resolutions and started to drink alcohol and enjoy a bit of sweets sometimes just to have less other cravings which could amplify the gaming ones.

    Nevertheless I am well and mostly healthy with most of my days having a strict routine: (maybe it helps somebody who is in a similar position as I am)

    • waking up before 8 
    • mediating (I am trying to implement it in the evening as well)
    • do some workout (there are a ton of great apps helping to start a routine with minimal time investment, for example this week I try the 3000 burpies challenge but not 100 a day like it is normally done nope I try to finish it in the least days possible 😉 )
    • then working with the occasional university course in between or the reverse depends on the day
    • cooking  and every two or three days I go for a shopping run
    • and in the evening either
      • reading a book (boy did I read a lot of books so far hopefully it does not get boring anytime soon)
      • or meeting some of friends, family or working collegues online for a skype beer and chat about everything
    • write in my physical diary (extremly important otherwise I would loose oversight of my days)
    • going to sleep early with my usual spanish session

    on the weekend the plan changes a bit but then my flatmate and I are playing boardgames, clean the flat extra thoroughly, more skyping 

    I am going to post more updates hopefully every two to three days depending on how well I cope with the situation.

    So have a good time, stay healthy and try to avoid going crazy at home (if you have similar circumstances as I do),

    Workout/run

    Meditation

    • 0min (the first alarm bells are ringing in my head I completely forget about meditation so I have to implement it in my morning routine again also since I am doing normal one and zazen I fear that the possiblity will always exist that I forget one of them so maybe a morning and an evening routine? we will see)
    •  did my zazen  finally  (only 5min buit it is a start)

    Visualisation and daily affirmation

    • did my affirmations and my visualisation in the morning

    • did my a bit of usual meditation and my daily spanish session, had 2 long online university courses, studied a bit (but sadly without much motivation), cleaned pour flat, cooked, went for a long walk (hopefully I will healthy enough at the weekend to start small running distances), made a few lists and organized thethings to do, to buy, to clean this week and also now that I have the time things I always wanted to do but I shied a way because of the time commitmend(mabye a bit python or baking or or or...)

    • I have created the perfect indoor training plan (something I wanted to do for months to become less dependable on gyms) sadly my health is against using them at the moment but I feel this the ideal time to create a training routine at home which I will be able to follow even when the danger of the virus has passed 😉 

  5. Day 355 14.03.20 and Day 356 15.03.20

    Sadly I was sick this weekend, just a normal cold not the big bad flu but nevertheless not the best days I have had so far this year. So there is not much to write about these days as got to nothing but trying to get better. Since Austria is after Italy the country in Europe with the most restrictions to the social life the days were quite chaotic since knowadays it seems a lot of people have to be protected from themselves.

    I am still not healthy but the sunny side of the whole stay at home and stay safe directive is that all my university courses are streams and home office as well should be doable tomorrow. The shady side is that all exams are postponed which I fear will throw me in a deep whole when at the end of this week or the next one I do not have enough stuff to work at home, I did not have a lot of social contacts and could not go running because I am still fully healthy. I hope I will find something productive to waste my time on then but we will see.

    So stay save and healthy guys.

    Weekly summary, thoughts and improvements for the future

    •  the problem I have at the moment is that the next exam is still 2 weeks away and not that big so my motivation to study ahead is non existent (as you can see just looking at my study record for the last weeks) and with a lot of freetime there come the cravings to  game again it seems I have to plan not only the exasms for the semester but also how to cope with bigger pockets of freetime
    • nevertheless I hope that this time is an extreme case of having too much time an my hands because of the virus is going around and so people tend to stay away from bigger crowds and also I am not drinking alkohol at the moment which makes partying in the morning more than a bit dull (strange I know but when you are the only sober person in the club/bar it is not fun believe me especially since our country is big social drinking)

    • no alkohol -> okay till now but a bit harder because going out with of friends will need some time to adjust  like every year this
    • no coffee -> no problems since I started this in late January
    • doing things ouside my comfort zone -> with university starting also not that hard (hopefully the corona virus will not shut them down for a while 😉 )

    One amazing thing that happened/I did today

     

    1) I do not exactly know why but for some reason I got really bad cravings for games before and  during gym time at least it helped me to find some old/new triggers (imagined free time in the evening, a podcast which skirted the topic of gaming) in the end I got over with only two of my counterplans (running since I was already at the gym and locking my phone with an app). Nevertheless it shocked me a lot because I thought this kind of intensive cravings were already behind me 😞

    Weekly summary, thoughts and improvements for the future

    As I promised my plans for lent:

    • no coffee (doing this since start of february to fall asleep better and it is working so I decided to continue it)
    • no alkohol
    • no meat (I will try to be as veggan as possible but I know that sometimes I will need a bit of cheese or some eggs)
    • no sweats (as long as possible no products with sugar)
    • I will try no porn till easter that should be managable (on fab I am not sure but I will try)
    • also each week I will do at least one thing that is (way) outside my comfort zone

    and I know but nearly every year I go completely overboard while fasting but I read in my last book that freedom is not having more choices of things to have and to do but real freedom is achived by deciding what not to do and by the things you deny yourself. I will post updates on how my lent it is going every wednesday so that there is progress to track.
