Weekly summary, thoughts and improvements for the future

  •  8/16 fasting was great and helped me loosing weight far more effectively so I will try to contine to follow it for the next weeks
  • wasting a lot of time with sports (Champions League and NBA) may be a problem for August if it is going to impair my studying for the next exam (it is a really big one 😞 ) then cold turkey should be an option to consider but we will see

  • got my waking up time right through the whole week but half of the week I had borderline 7h or less sleep which is not ideal for my productivity and was for sure the main reason why I was quite weak against the temptation of bad habits (sweets, more meat than usual, porn,...)

Days 513 19.08.20 to 517 23.08.20

so fast can it go from good to way worse 😞. After work on wednesday I did not feel that great and of course I had to get sick for a few days additionally on the weekend I got craving after craving for gaming (it has been a long time since they were this heavy)  maybe because I realised that now that my road plan for the net exams has gotten way harder also since I was just lying around in my flat waiting to get better my boredom got the better of me so I watched a lot of youtube and I fear both reasons are responsible for my rush of cravings or gaming nostalgia (I am still not sure what it is). Well as a consequence I am going to reduce my screentime heavily again this week and also try to find the root causes of why since a few months I get this regular attacks.

At least on sunday I was able to go to the gym for a small workout and I decided to start this week playing tennis since it seems I am unable to live without a sport with revolves around a ball.^^ Studywise I will have to make a new plan (again... I think I am far from consequent enough in following them) and restart my progress. The next entry should be back to normal hopefully. 😉
