Day 63: No Useless Videos
Day 61: Sticking to Food schedule

Completed a double workout which is great, but skipped jumping push-ups the first time in a millenium probably.
The thing is, that probably the combination of cold and the hard floor made me feel super hard impact when landing and I got scared that I might hurt my wrist.
Will try to combine it with my next workout tomorrow (today)

Sliding with the meals to the next day the second day straight (Meaning I eat parts of the meals of the next day a bit after 00:00 ) Instead of the defined time, spread in 3 meals)

Today is the first day after a while that I ate a complete breakfast according to schedule ( Apart for dates and brazil nuts which I didn't buy yet)
I think I had a little bit too much water in it though, because I felt extremely satiated afterwards.

Thinking how to obtain the 1 year visa.

I ran into an option that I was aware of but now made me think again which states that i need about 25,000 EUR for a visa of 1 year in Spain, I have therefor been brainstorming how could I get this amount relatively quickly, considering that I now have about half the amount.

Thoughts that popped to my head were becoming a car salesman, but I realized I don't have a license, and I do not want to acquire one yet.
Then I thought of doing real - estate sales. I know that one sale there may mean very big comissions. Some even may get me the whole 12,500 EUR in one sale.
So maybe I should take up a middleman sales course in real estate?

Other optionss that need looking into furter:
-Working as an independent in Spain.
-Could I be considered a highly skilled worker for something? (Perhaps my lifeguard or airplane mechanic certifications could help?)

Day 62: Sticking to Food schedule

Once again changed up my workout schedule. This time the excuse is that I had a vaccination and that the time god too late so I preferred to do a 1 hr run than a 3 hr stomach workout.
Once again a part of the meal after the workout dripped a bit over to the next day.
I think that doing the workout in the morning could stop this vicious cycle. 

The question is, where will /i do an abs workout so as not to hurt my back?
 

But I guess as usual the cold hard asphalt could do. But I still need a pretty soft piec of grou to cobtubnue the chest exercise i missed 2 days ago, in addition it is preferable that my hands will be well wormed up. So I gues a good solution would be to come back home and just do this exercise on the floor, despite the noise it will make for the neighbors.

Day 63: Sticking to Food schedule

Alright so it seems my entries are quite scattered lately, so I think one thing I could to to focus them is write one goal for the next day at the end of the post that is most important to me.

3 Things I did right today no matter how small:
1. Abs workout first thing in the morning!
2. 2 hours of marketing project(despite feeling sleepy) Thankfully I planned this clause yesterday during daily schedule planning and had written out what I will do when (not if) i feel tired after food and before working on the marketing projecy. It seems that this too is not obvious since this month there are 7 days where I didn't meet this norm already... 
But of course, even small wins must be given a nice word about.
3. finishing food earlier than 23:00 and not "borrowing" any food from tomorrow

1 Thng I could do better:

Planned a bit more time for work out.

Top Priority for tomorrow:
Double workout Chest and Legs (Without jumping pushups) (may replace it with other exercise for chest)

Top Priority: Accomplished. 4 hrs project.
3 things I did right today, no matter how small:
-4 hrs project.
-deviating from schedule only by about an hour.
-1 hr run
1 thing I could do better: Plan next day before dozing off!!!

I've slipped and woke up very late, so instead of a double workout of 5 hts, I'll do a 1 hr run, but I'll attempt to do 6 hrs blog.
Tomorrow's (Actually today's) top priority: 6 hrs project.

Day 66: Sticking to Food schedule

Top Priority: Accomplished. 6 hrs project. 
3 things I did right today, no matter how small:
-6 hrs project.
-quickly adapting in the morning for a 6 hour marketing day once realizing I missed the deadline for a 5 hr workout.
-recognizing cravings and accepting that it is okay to have them
1 thing I could do better
-Do 1 or a few pomodoros where I summarize more generally and not word by word to elaborate my comfort zone.

Cravings are coming in droves. Probably because I allowed myself to do a 1hr run instead of a longer 5hr workout double workout. Let's wait and see if they continue. Maybe I should make some minor changes in schedule, so as to have less of them?

Tomorrow's (Actually today's) top priority: 5 hr Double workout

Day 67: Sticking to Food schedule

Top Priority: Accomplished. 5 hrs double workout. 
3 things I did right today, no matter how small:
-5 hrs double workout.
-2 hrs marketing and saying awake despite extreme sleepinesst.
-Cleaning the house
1 thing I could do better
-Go to nut shop (Will do on Monday together with the vaccination of rabbies, it's very close anyway)

In this house that I rented there are only windows into the inside of a building ( like a patio ) which is surrounded by the building itself, therefor there's really not a lot of clean air and if someone smokes it goes directly down to my appartment which is on the bottom floor. Moreover the entrance to the apartment also smells like cigarretes. So I'm surrounded by cigarettes from both sides basically and coughing all the time.
The questions I've been asking all apartment owners when looking for an apartment to avoid this were whether someone smokes in the apartment and whether the room has a window, but apparently it wasn't enough.
In addition, on the day after I came to the apartment I washed all the sheets, but the next day the thick mattrass cover apparently has spread the smell of pee onto the clean linen again. 
The second issue appears that is on the way to resolve (the owner is talking about buying a new one 
The other 2 just seem insolvable... And I have signed a contract for a month clearly...
So for now I'm coughing all day long apart for when I'm out for a workout.
I think all the time that Is not essential to be in house I'll be outside. The problem is I still probably need to sleep eat and shower at home, which is like 12 hours.
Anyone got any other solutions? Maybe an affordable purifier? Anything?

Tomorrow's (Actually today's) top priority: 3 hr chest workout

Day 68: Sticking to Food schedule

Top Priority: Accomplished. 3 hrs chest workout. 
3 things I did right today, no matter how small:
-3 hrs chest workout.
-2 hrs marketing and saying awake despite extreme sleepiness the same as yesterday.
-Washing clothe again because of it getting wet in the rain
1 thing I could do better
-Pay more attention to the clothes on the balcony, especially that I knew that rain was in the forecast. I got carried away with the cooking... And when I cook I do not hear anything apparently (air suction from stove, clothe washing machine, audiobook, are all causes for that)

Cravings are intensifying.... 
I think that for one, I used to have a major goal of the flight to Spain in the last period and it kept me busy, but now that I'm here I have often avoided the reason that I am here, which is finding a job. I have not yet even physically gone to one employer.

Moreover, there is an upcoming simplification of workouts. Instead of the usual 5 days of bike of 4,4,4,7,7 hours and 2 days of 5hr workout, I'm about to do 1,3,1,3,1,3,3 which is 15 hours instead of 36, and it feels like I'm slacking off....

Tomorrow's (Actually today's) top priority: Rabbies vaccination before 13:00

Day 71: No Useless Videos
Day 69: Sticking to Food schedule

Top Priority: Accomplished. Arrived before 13. 
3 things I did right today, no matter how small:
-7 pomodoros/ almost 8 but got distracted to re-hang some clothes in the clothes hanger.
-Finding and purchasing nuts for the remainder of my stay, and buying chlorella to try it out as a source of B12
-1 hr run
1 thing I could do better
-Look for jobs I could call more intensely so that I could make use of the fact that I'm now in madrid

A nice day overall apart for the fact that I have yet again fell asleep without completing the evening routine, and that's why I also write this entry just now. 

I'm not writing a top priority, as it would be retro ( and kind of cheating ).

Top Priority: None written. 
3 things I did right today, no matter how small:
-5 pomodoros.
-1 hr run
-avoiding eating rice at dinner because of meals not having a big break between them because I woke up late

Day 73: No Useless Videos
Day 71: Sticking to Food schedule

Top Priority: Almost accomplished, as I woke up 01 hr and 45 minutes late, and it was warmer than expected. (6°C)
3 things I did right today, no matter how small:
-10 pomodoros again despite feeling like falling asleep all the time, standing, washing face, doing pushups in between focus units to wake myself up.
-3 hr workout even though a bit late, but still nice and it was still kinda cold 🙂
-Completing evening routine completely without starting to fall asleep so my progress counts. (5 pages of book, book summary video) Note: still have a bit to go, but it seems I'm on the track to completion hopefully

(Edit) 1 thing I could do better: Wake up with alarm


Just as yesterday slept in on the 06:30 alarm clock, and accidentally woke up at 08 15, despite when I slept in i told myself I'll wake up at 7, but then didn't set an alarm.
Cravings were super strong during workout as I remembered the cold when I was living in Novosibirsk and how I used to play the computer in my mother's office and the first MMO RPG I played... 
Plus thoughts of eating sweets..
But I realize that all those things will hurt me long term. Still I need to think about an activity that will replace some of the needs those habits satisfied.


Tomorrow's top priority: Wake up with alarm clock. (Will plan in a few minutes when that is.)

-8 pomodoros including the fact that I finished 2 hours early!

Eat three meals instead of 2. This puts a lot of pressure on the digestive system. My meals are big enough as is, even when they're split into 3.
