Day 87: No Useless Videos
Day 85: Sticking to Food schedule

Top Priority: Accomplished. 4 pomodoros in a chunk. Which I have done by moving my meeting with my renter by two hours, because i spent more time eating than I planned. A great move I believe!
3 things I did right today, no matter how small:
-Doing half hour run at least despite of the time being quite late.
-Clearly 4 pomodoros
-Completing the time of cold showers (it was about 40 minutes now) which I have cut short from two days earlier in order to fit into schedule, plus here in Israel there's no heating in the rooms, so I was shaking quite a bit more than in Madrid, AWESOME, LOVE IT. Will be looking forward to many more days like this (Though I will be aiming for it to be a bit shorter, but maybe it will become colder outside ūüôā¬†)

1 thing I could do better:

though I moved all my schedule 2 hours forward, got to stay conscious of sleep and not let myself go completely lose, cleaning the house and eating with no pressure. Be a lot more time conscious.
Bottom line, I would like to practice cutting meals in the middle, because it's a big issue for me, since I always justify that I have a complete diet plan for all my nutrients and if I cut short I'm lacking nutrients. But on the other hand if I start cutting it short to fit the time frame, I'll eventually find a way to fit all of the meal into the timeframe, instead of eating leisurely like I have infinite time like a b*tch.

Tomorrow's(Today's) top priority: 

Enforce two timepoints. Finish eating at 16 flat (Not including dishes), finish working at 21 flat (Be at home by that time).

P.S. Since I cut my workday from 7 hrs I'll complete those hours in a spread throughout the continuing days, or perhaps tomorrow in a bulk, one of the two.

Day 86: Sticking to Food schedule

Top Priority: Partly accomplished. Finishd eating at 16:00 exactly, came back home at 21:14. Because I have taken a delivery which I thought I'll finish by 21 00, but I didn't.
3 things I did right today, no matter how small:
-4 hours courier rides
-4 pomodoros without breaks before breakfast
-One meal besids the one I ate after 00

1 thing I could do better:

Avoid the last delivery if I'm not sure I can come back before 21 00

Tomorrow's top priority: 

Finish bike deliveries by 21:00.
( Very hopefully that will include 10 work hrs)

Congrats on 90 days!

Thank you very much Paul! Lately I've been concentrating on going to sleep at 23:00 so I cut sometime on the forum, that's why I haven't been replying.
I'm also considering making a sleep related goal next

Day 97: No Useless Videos
Day 95: Sticking to Food schedule

Top Priority: Failed. Instead of working out, I was falling asleep after breakfast as usual, and went to sleep for two hours.
Plus I peed myself at night again and have been feeling sorry for myself and cravings of surrendering to video games were high. But got to keep going the good way.
I think also that the lack of defining the next habit I want to build here is also a contributing factor to the cravinigs.. Because I feel I'm not living up to my values and I want to burry it under escape in games.

I'm having trouble putting moving to Spain on the backburner, In order to focus on my main goal of financial freedom, moerover this would mean gaining less money in general, and feeling even more uncomfortable, so I postpone it all the time.

Also I want to focus on sleep and food on certain times, and am thinking whether that should be the next habit or marketing 6 hrs a day, that's what it comes down to.



3 things I did right today, no matter how small:
- 3.5 hrs deliveries, a part of it in heavy rain, was completely wet
- 4 pomodoros marketing, plus not counting one during which the timer was running but I was just falling asleep and made no progress
- Cleaning up all the pee quickly and turning on washing machine, plus setting an appointment with the doc, and reading about fully cushioned bike (mountain bike) because now I'm riding a hybrid one, and I'm quite sure that it's not absorbing the bumps well enough...

1 thing I could do better:

Despite the situation I'm unused to of being completely wet and shaking before even starting my cold shower, following schedule. Mainly doing the minimum time of shower if I'm past 21 30 with it.

Tomorrow's top priority: 
Leg workout (3 hrs)

Day 104: No Useless Videos
Day 102: Sticking to Food schedule

Top Priority: Not accomplishrf, but I did a 3 hour bike delivery instead. ūüė쬆That happened because I wanted to fit food in the evening, and then I wouldn't workout right afterwards so the excuse was to do a low intensity activity, so i did 3 hours biking. (excuses)

3 things I did right yesterday, no matter how small:
- 4 pomodoros ( at least the minimum )
- 3 hrs biking
- calling another apartment owner to view an apartment and not letting the momentum stop me from doing so, although we didn't setup a meeting eventually, since the cheaper room that I wanted is now taken.

1 thing I could do better:
Despite feeling super tired after breakfast do a bit of pushups, wash my face, continue working, and get out for workout, instead of laying in bed, giving in to tiredness and feeling sorry for myself (The environment at home of extreme un-organization and mother's lack of responsibility have also probably gave me some influence 


Tomorrow's(Today's) top priority: 
Do full double workout even if I feel tired, and sleep only 6 hrs (As today I slept in for about 11)

Edit: P.S. The fact that I went for new year's eve back home to play monopoly with my family for a few hours, slept there and went back home first thing in the morning should not serve as an excuse to avoid any discipline, but I still must acknowledge the fact that seeing my brother who generally plays games showing what games he likes, seeing all the clutter around the house, and having mother tell me suggestions on how to live a better life, asking me to please take a worm shower and stuff... ( Omg.... ) Those things do have an influence. So I shiould acknowledge this, and move forward with this in my consciousness. Great thing that I have this short opportunity to reflect

Day 106: No Useless Videos
Day 104: Sticking to Food schedule


Top Priority: Accomplished.
3 things I did right yesterday, no matter how small.
- Full Workout 5 hrs, no more, no less.
- Despite feeling very sleepy, still sitting and attempting to progress at marketing for 4 pomodoros.
- Skipping a part of morning routine to complete the workout and marketing before 18 00, plus waking up on time despite sleeping only about 4.5 hrs

1 Thing I could do better:
I got scared of calling my apartment owner to let him know that I'm leaving my apartment, even though I really want to do it already.
I am sure that I don't want to settle on health ( My flatmates smoke in their rooms, and my window is kind of to the inside of the building where other neighbors sometimes smoke too ) 
Therefor I've got to keep looking for a better apartment and leave this one.
The plan is to at least find a more expensive flat for one month if I will see that I can't find something affordable within the 2 week notice that I give him. 
Scared sh*tless that I might not find something affordable and be left hanging, perhaps having to sleep with all my stuff in a shared dorm. But if it earns me a few months of life thanks to avoiding the smoke, and better quality of life during that time I think it's worth it.

P.S. Of course this is something that may be fixed in the current apartment, but I think it would cost me more effort to try to fix it than move out, since there are 4 smoking flatmates, and I cannot expect even one of them, not to mention all of them, to stop smoking in their rooms or put a rug under their door or something. 

One more thing that I want to take up is to stop eating at 19:00, I think this way I will go to sleep earlier, hopefully before 23:00
As they say, got to add something to my challenges, because it's either you grow or you die. 

This will go on top of the current habits of course

Plus something worth mentioning is that these two habits are building on an earlier one.
Day 171: Eating only foods I bought
Thank you everyone for getting me this far and Got to put some gas on my life because I'm already feeling the gaming cravings piling up. 
Day 1: Eating Only between 06:30 and 19:00 (Last bite before 19:00)
Day 1: Being in bed before 23:15 
Note: These may be up to change so long as I do it in my weekly planning, but better not, at least during 90 days.

I am also thinking that perhaps I should seperate my workout to be spread throughout the week, because it doesn't seem feasible to do three meals on a day of a 5 hr workout, plus 1.5 hrs of morning routine..

This may seem harsh and un-agile, but it's just for 90 days, and it is sure to make me healthier, but I'll have to sacrifice some things for it and it will be worth it.
Plus it is only for 90 days, and If I really want, I could change it later. The key is not to remain stagnant and indecisive.
Edit: I'd like to better start with 21 days and see how it goes

Day 105: Sticking to Food schedule

3 things I did right today, no matter how small.
- Chest workout
- Calling apartment owner to give him a notice that I'm leaving in two weeks
- Finishing to eat before 19 00 (At 18 59 :D)

1 Thing I could do better:
Go to sleep a little earlier at night, I spent a lot of time just mindlessly sitting and browsing the forum

I wrote day 1 yesterday but actually it was for yesterday, so today truly is 
Day 1: Eating Only between 06:30 and 19:00 (Last bite before 19:00)
and tomorrow will be day one of (because I might accomplish it only after the daily journal entry)
Day 0: Being in bed before 23:15 

No need for top priority, as I'm focusing on those two goals for now, though it is worth mentioning that I'll need to devote at least one hour for apartment search every day, perhaps more to also go and see some.

Get into bed or allow myself to doze off on the table only after putting two safety alarm clocks for 22 30, so as to have a barrier to brush teeth and prepare to sleep before 23:15

Less chit-chatting with flatmates.
Only respond the essential responses. Do not initiate conversations. If you have something to tell them, write it down and talk about it with them on tuesday, or write it to them on Whatsapp. ( I lost about an hour and a half because of it yesterday which could have benn used for doing deliveries, or looking for an apartment for example.
