Day 133 04.08.19

 

Gratitude journal
 

Today I am grateful for a slow and calm sunday.

Today I am grateful for having nice working collegues.


One amazing thing that happened/I did today

 

1) I was really exhausted from the excursion with my working collegues (way too much beer 😞 )

 

Workout/run

 

more than 17k steps

4km running

1h playing basketball

 

Meditation

 

10min in the morning

20min in the evening


Visualisation and daily affirmation

a bit of visualisation in the morning 🙂 

Reading (0hour of studying for the exam today)

 

had enough time for learning spanish and continuing to read my spanish book, also while lying in bed and suffering I started a new audiobook (instead of watching netflix what I always would have done before)


my wake-up time

09:20

Weekly Goal(s)

start waking up at 6:30am, study at between 5 and 8hours per day, have at least 2 perfect days in a row (still the same but maybe I am going on a break for studying this week we will see)


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, find ways to avoid falling back to old habits in times of boredom especially now in the summer

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/NC:49)

had enough time for spanish and meditation, had lots of fun with my little cousin

What I could have done to make my day better

but I stayed too long in bed and wasted half the day away 😞

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

 

wake up at 7, go to work, have a workout at the gym, start studying again

 

Weekly summary, thoughts and improvements for the future

What went well today: (NF:6/NW:0/NS:0/NC:67)

Day 152 23.08.19

 

Gratitude journal
 

Today I am grateful for having a lot to do so that it is not possible to be destracted.

Today I am grateful for doing some real sport after the vacation.


One amazing thing that happened/I did today

1)started running and at first it was really hard because I thought I lost some stamina during nearly week of no real sport but after a few kilometers I realised that it was just a mental thing and not a physical one and it went great

Workout/run

 

more than 23k steps

10km running

2h workout at the gym

 

Meditation

 

67min (in the morning and afternoon)


Visualisation and daily affirmation

did a lot visualisation during my run

Reading (1hour of studying for the exam today)

 

had enough time for a spanish podcast but was only able to study an hour because there was so much to organise after coming back


my wake-up time

9:00 (to get a bit more sleep again)

Weekly Goal(s)

start waking up at 6:30am, study at between 5 and 8hours per day, have at least 4 perfect days in a row


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, find ways to avoid falling back to old habits in times of boredom especially now in the summer

3 Month Goal

getting my degree or getting it nearly done during the summer, having a really productive life, living my life so that I am proud of it, avoid the comfort zone as much as possible

What went well today: (NF:0/NW:0/NS:1/NC:68)

did some spanish and a lot of meditation, studied only around 1 hour but hopefully organised enough so that after this weekend (there will be 2! big birthday parties of relatives) I should be able to ramp up my study time significantly

What I could have done to make my day better

a lot of things: more spanish (especially reading my book), some more Tai-Chi (I only did some streching), more studying (the usual 😉 ) but the day only has a fixed amout of hours and I would have needed at least 5 more 😞 

 

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

 

wake up around 8, go to the first birthday party, study a bit,

 

Weekly summary, thoughts and improvements for the future

starting next week I will be waking up early again because I always experienced a greater productivity for the whole day when doing that (but only if I get enough sleep)

also I am thinking how to cope with my webnovel problem because I reduced it down to less then an hour (more like a half) of the day but the last step is hard since it is my stress or boredom coping mechanism

finally since my goal of at least one or more months without no fap is still far away I am thinking of following the advice of a few members in this forum and start with no porn and move slowly from there that should be more manageable

Good job mate 🙂

And I feel also more productive when I wake up early. Its somehow the feeling you are better than other people, who wake up late. It gives you kind of a benefit, you are one step more a head. But yea, enough sleep is more important(-> go earlier into the bed)
