Time to restart my life again

Recommended Posts

Day 64 27.05.19

 

Gratitude journal

Today I am grateful for seeing a way to my goals again.


One amazing thing that happened/I did today

1) had a busy day but found time to study and had a crazy flow (worked nearly 2hours straight without any distraction)

2) less than 90min mobile screen time today 🙂

 

Workout/run

 

more than 15k steps 

 

Meditation

 

10 min guided meditation in the morning

10 min guided meditation in the evening


Visualisation and daily affirmation

a bit affirmation and visualisation

Reading (2hours of studying for the next exam today)

 

did my regular Spanish session, studied 2 hours (sadly external influences hindered me from studying more 😞 )


my wake-up time

 

7:40 (bad start I know but had again trouble to sleep)


Weekly Goal(s)

continue with miracle morning routine, study at between 4 and 8hours per day, reduce my screen time to less than 2hours, meditate half an hour every day, have at least 2 perfect days next week


Monthly Goal

to study a lot for my exams,  be more grateful for everything in life, find the joy of living in the moment, think hard about my values and what kind of person I want to be, start the miracle morning 1 month challenge anew

3 Month Goal

getting my degree or getting it nearly done so that at least at the end of July I have it in my hands, having a really productive life, living my life so that I am proud of it

What went well today: (NF:3/NW:1/NS:1)

had another perfect day (if I exclude the waking up time), was really focused while studying, my screen time on my mobile phone was really low (one day I will get it under 60min^^), had a great talk with my psychiatrist, overall was really productive today ->

What I could have done to make my day better

 

but not in the way I hoped, we had a serious moth infestion in our kitchen and so a large part of today was to throw away lots of food and spices also went on a cleaning frenzy and now hopefully the problem is gone,


What I will do differently tomorrow/What I have planned for tomorrow:

 

wake up earlier, meditate for 30min, study at least 2hours, go to work, play basketball first time since my ankle injury

 

Weekly summary, thoughts and improvements for the future

Day 65 28.05.19

 

Gratitude journal

Today I am grateful for having some time for myself.


One amazing thing that happened/I did today

1)  did only sleep few hours (because of my neighbours) but nevertheless had a really productive and great workday and even went to the basketball training afterwards despite wanting to go to sleep really badly

 

Workout/run

 

95min intensive basketball workout

more than 11k steps 

 

Meditation

 

10 min guided meditation in the morning


Visualisation and daily affirmation

a bit affirmation and visualisation

Reading (0hours of studying for the next exam today)

 

did my regular Spanish session, studied 0 hours (I was too tired after work and basketball 😞  )


my wake-up time

 

7:15


Weekly Goal(s)

continue with miracle morning routine, study at between 4 and 8hours per day, reduce my screen time to less than 2hours, meditate half an hour every day, have at least 2 perfect days next week


Monthly Goal

to study a lot for my exams,  be more grateful for everything in life, find the joy of living in the moment, think hard about my values and what kind of person I want to be, start the miracle morning 1 month challenge anew

3 Month Goal

getting my degree or getting it nearly done so that at least at the end of July I have it in my hands, having a really productive life, living my life so that I am proud of it

What went well today: (NF:4/NW:0/NS:0)

had a really productive workday, a hard but rewarding basketball workout, found a little time to meditate,

What I could have done to make my day better

 

but like always when I am dead tired starting the day I cave in and break the no sugar habit to sustain myself and sadly today I was too tired to avoid looking on my usual webnovel site and broke this budding habit as well ( but tomorrow will be a better day with more sleep)


What I will do differently tomorrow/What I have planned for tomorrow:

 

wake up between 7 and 8 (maybe get a little bit more sleep), meditate for 30min, study at least 5hours, go to university, go to tai-chi, maybe run a bit if the weather is ok, have a perfect day again

What I could have done to make my day better

 

I have been too destroyed to cope with the popping up cravings (so the counter is down to zero again for all three) but the next weeks will be much better because now the next exam date is near the pressure will force me to shed the habits (at least for thes period of time)

again another failed track of coping with my cravings but I am optimistic because when I mark the days of the last month when I was weak I reduced that number of days (and especially the time) drastically since starting the journal so I will not give up and start anew tomorrow

longer meditation, same spanish and a bit Tai-chi also waking up earlier would have been nice (I just imagine waking up at 7 would have alleviated my time problem so I write it down as a reminder to change my sleeping shedule)


What I will do differently tomorrow/What I have planned for tomorrow:

 

wake around 8, try to meditate for 30min, study at least 6 hours, maybe have the time to do some Tai-Chi

 

Weekly summary, thoughts and improvements for the future

Day 77 09.06.19

 

Gratitude journal

Today I am grateful for my great family.

Today I am grateful for my deciding to change myself more drastically again.

Today I am grateful for seeing my flaws and finding new triggers and solutions to my cravings again.


One amazing thing that happened/I did today

 

1) had a great sunday with my family

2) it is now nearly a month that hold my weight of 80kg instead of the 84kg I had the years before 😉 (but my goal is still 78 and optmistically 76kg)

 

Workout/run

 

more than 4k steps  (restday)

 

Meditation

 

5min in the morning

10min in the afternoon

 


Visualisation and daily affirmation

a bit affirmation

Reading (3+hours of studying for the next exam today)

 

had finally time for spanish today, studied  more than 3hours


my wake-up time

 

08:20
 

Weekly Goal(s)

start waking up at 6:30am again, study at between 5 and 8hours per day, reduce my screen time to less than 2hours, meditate half an hour every day, have at least 2 perfect days


Monthly Goal

to study at least 4 hours a day (or as average over the weeks),  be more grateful for everything in life, find the joy of living in the moment, think hard about my values and what kind of person I want to be

3 Month Goal

getting my degree or getting it nearly done so that at least at the end of July I have it in my hands, having a really productive life, living my life so that I am proud of it

What went well today: (NF:0/NW:0/NS:0)

studied  a bit, had a fun meeting with my more distant relatives, was at really fun Pentecost celebration at church (one of the few must go events at church) I dreaded it as far worse, finally did my spanish and Tai-Chi, found time to meditate

What I could have done to make my day better

 

had a negative day 😞  but as a ray of hope found all the triggers to them (well the no sugar was not possible because of the family celebration there is always llots of sugared food around)


What I will do differently tomorrow/What I have planned for tomorrow:

 

wake around 7, meditate for 30min, study 7 hours, do some Tai-Chi, do some spanish,

 

Weekly summary, thoughts and improvements for the future

I realized that a week without working and with a hard studying shedule does wonders to judging how I want to spend my time and what habits and time consuming activities I do not need anymore so I wrote down most of my main goals for this summer (starting today and a detailed plan is in the making):

  • another weight loss to 78kg (I still dream of the 76kg) and get my pull-ups counter to ten
  • no down time during summer for studying (if last week let me realize something it is that I should never really stop learning/studying for some time I gets REALLY revert back to the productive self)
  • quiting webnovels and similar internet activities for good (because I did half-assed or even as a reward till now I was not able to let go so I blocked all possibilities to access them ever again)
  • reading more books but this time mainly the non-fictional and professional sort ( I plan for at least 3 but we will see how it goes and how much time I have)
  • cut down or avoid all entertainment that drown my selfreflective ablities (I let go of a lot of my favorite podcasts today becasue the were helping my old and destructive habits)
  • and finally get my good, productive sleeping habits back (but I hope I will  accomplish this in the next weeks!)

What I could have done to make my day better

 

maybe I could have studied a bit more but in my office the air conditioning was broken and we had 30+ degrees outside and nearly the same inside so I was really exhausted after work, maybe a bit spanish would still have been possible I do not know...
