  1. So gonna update these on Saturdays 24 days down. I heard one of my favorite games was rereleased on Steam which has led to many day dreams over the last week. Snapping myself out of it is relatively simple. Just about keeping myself on task. Same kinda process as meditation when your mind wonders. Just bring yourself back to it. So doing this I've picked up a few good habbits and I'm really seeing the benefits from them. The grattitude journal and meditation set my mindset for the day. Picking up my guitar for the first time in years has been fun and isn't the chore I thought it would be.
  2. Day 16 down. Gonna be doing a new format from now on. I'll do weekly progress reports on here and daily records in my hand held Journal. Today was okay. Still messing about with doctors, medications and painting while on break. I have to stop any form of exerting exercise as my medication causes muscle cramps which suuucks. But aside from that. Reasonable day. Things are easing up with the lockdown so hopefully back to work soon!
  3. Day 15 9 am - I woke up. Really late start today but I couldn't sleep last night till I finally dropped off at maybe 3.30 am. Light jog is all for dismorning till I know more about my medical problems. 10 am - Breakfast and shower. 11 am - Medical consultation. Just my luck to deal with medical issues, in a global pandemic while I'm trying to quit gaming xD 12 30 pm - Lunch time. 1 pm - Painting time again. Think I need to start scheduling breaks xD 3 30 pm - Walked up the hill. It was relaxing but the rain was pretty heavy. 5 30 pm - Dinner time.
  4. I have never heard of complaining Germans being a thing but I'll take your word for it. Good luck trying to break free from the chain xD
  5. Considering you only played one game and it was for social. I don't think its too bad. Especially considering how addictive that game is. I used to play League and I never knew when to stop xD
  6. Day 14 6 am - Woke up and exercise. 8 am - Breakfast and shower. 8 40 am - Went out and did a family shop. 10 am - Had a call with my Doctor, he's told me to relax on the exercise atm. I've got some medical turmoil ahead it seems 😛 10 30 am - I went and met up with a friend which I haven't seen in about 8 months and we spent most of the day hanging out from this point. 5 pm - Got home, put dinner on. 6 pm - Did some painting. Finished a model I've been working on. Pretty happy with the progress. 9 40 pm - Came on here, later than normal but its
  7. Day 13 6 am - Woke up on time this time, High intensity walk and lower body workout. 8 am - Breakfast and Shower 8.40 am - Werk Werk 12 pm - Lunch time 12.30 pm - Did some more research on dieting mainly so I have an end goal. I'm gonna have to wait for a while as I scouted the nearby supermarkets and they are very low on too many ingredients to start it in full. For now, gonna have try some of these as ingredients become available just to get used to the food. 2.30 pm - Got work on painting alot of models up. Basing them all in one long spree so I can get a
  8. Glad you had a good time at yours friends 🙂 It's pretty surprising when we quit how quickly that days actually go when we fill it with worthwhile things xD
  9. @mks I think its admirable that you are trying to get out of your shell. I think making eye contact in different stores may hit your bank if you're doing it every day though xD But training out of social anxiety is good, aslong as you do it your pace 🙂
  10. Day 12 8 am - Late start today, struggled to sleep. Not really sure why. Running and upper body workout. 9 30 am - breakfast and shower 10 am - Started working again. Actually got passed the problem from yesterday. It was a logic error which I should of suspected to be honest when considering what was wrong. Hindsight... 1 pm -Lunch time and spent time with the pups in the garden again 2 30 pm - Back to work. Almost at the end of this section. 3 30 - High intensity walk. There is someone who I keep running into when walking, guess we just kinda sync out wal
  11. Day 11 6am - Woke up, high intensity walk and full body work out (Who said Sunday was a rest day). 8.30 am - Healthy breakfast, found something which made something so bland taste good. It'll really make a difference keeping to it xD 9 am - Started working on some advanced stuff for my module. Made some really good progress but I hit a brick wall xD 12.30 pm - lunch time. Abit late but I was determined to smash my head into that brick wall xD 1 pm - Playing with the pups in the garden and hanging out with the family. Nothing too special, just relaxing for abit.
  12. @Helen Yeah, luckily for me, the lockdown started around the same time he was born, so I was able to spend most of the time watching the adorable guy grow and raising him xD It was nothing on Teddy's side. We think Peanut was resource protecting his human unfortunately. My brother didn't spend much time socializing him so he's not used to other dogs. Luckily, Teddy came from a litter of 10 so he's abit better on that front. Just need to find a few friends for him so the fun can continue 🙂
  13. @mks I find when I have no reason to get up my insomnia goes wild. I'd end up awake till 5 am for no reason because I had nothing to work towards so why bother to sleep to be ready for the day after. I think that may be a goal in itself, find some you're passionate about, something worth getting out of bed for. I used to be really resentful a couple years ago. It took some meditation and some real healthy mind steps to break passed it. Couldn't recommend meditation using Headspace. One of the first things it teaches you is how to let your thoughts just come and go 🙂
  14. Day 10 6 am - Woke up, gratitude journal, went on walk and when I got back, did a lower body work out. 8 am - Healthy breakfast, shower and watch a couple things while eating and waiting for people. 9 am - went on first walk with our pup Teddy, it wasn't a long one as he just hit 12 weeks and didn't want to damage his joints and then we went round my brothers to introduce Teddy to his dog Peanut. Unfortunately they didn't get on 😞 11.30 am - Healthy lunch. 12 pm - Starting painting. Gotta get to work if I wanna stuff ready for my goal so I spent a good amount of
  15. Weather or not your here looking for total escape from video games, you're in the right place. Welcome 🙂
