Update :cat-heart-blob: 146 KG.
Thats 50 KG lost in 362 days since i started.
Holy shit that's amazing! I saw that you walk 6 kms per day, how many steps is that?

And what do you eat and not eat?

I was like 70kg after living almost two years on the streets but now after having an apartment since late 2018 and covid times Ive gained 20kg! I need to really turn this around again.

Feels like I always have so much to do that I never really do anything. So I'm thinking about doing something drastic, that I will stop watching series and movie, and YouTube, completely at home! (MCU will still be watched!)

There is this saying that we aren't creative because we are never bored and that is so true for me, I seriously watch YouTube while I make my morning coffee, its small moments like that when I should be disappearing into my own mind.

Maybe I need to stop with puzzle games on my phone, I do those always when I need to wait for something or taking public transport, again could be good times to think and reflect.

I will of course go to the cinema for movie and play video games at home.

Any of you tried to schedule your days? I mean mostly for stuff outside obviously scheduled stuff, like work or school? Since there is so much I want to do I keep jumping back and forth between everything, I thought I would try and schedule my days so that I can dedicate a few hours to everything and not have to worry about what to do.

I would not function without a schedule or some sort of GTD setup. I barely do with it!

Its not that hard to come up things you want to do right? The hard part is finding the time!

Here is something I did to try it out. Look very few things but I can dedicate time to them, since I don't really have anything that I must do, except my studies, which is two hours per day.

I should add, media in the schedule isn't watching tv haha, put planning or making videos.

Unfortunately my job requires me to do different things every day, so my calendar would be a big 'WORK' from 8 AM to 10 PM because I don't even have a set lunch time.

I just block my weekday personal calendar out with “work”, because my employer has strictly closed systems that I can’t connect my devices or personal accounts to. So all my detailed calendars for work are on my work PC.

So essentially I shift between two calendars depending on whether I’m at work or not.

Yeah I do realise I'm in a position where I can actually dedicate time to projects and feel kind of bad that I havent been more organised and actually done stuff while I had the chance.

It's been suggested to me that I should try to schedule my life, but the problem I find is that I won't stick to it.
It's too easy for me to just say 'nah not today' to any number of things I could schedule, and just not follow through.

Yeah I can be the same, I was very motivated with my new schedule... then I got both the cold and the deck, so now I'm mostly chilling haha. But I do think it is important with routines to segment out parts of ones time to things one wants to do, it helps one drop that feeling of "I should be doing this and that" and can just do what you had scheduled to do. Well at least that is my hope.

Reading what I posted about almost 3 years ago, and I can say the following:

1. I'm doing pretty well as being a good father.
2. I'm taking care of my health, we are having better eating habits though between work and spending time with my child I stopped exercising.
3. I did not get a promotion, but my leadership changed and we get along well.

  • Going to try run a full marathon, probably.
  • Start drawing and use my twitter account
  • Learn something new, don't know what yet.
  • Want to do some volunteer work.
  • Rewiring my brain to enjoy things again instead of stressing over every little thing.
This post is pretty funny from few years ago.

First goal: Covid happened
Second goal: Twitter got bought out by Musk
Forth goal: Covid happened

I mean covid shouldn't stop me from doing a ton of things but it certainly affected them :p

It was kind of painful to check back at my wishes and realising that in three years it hadn’t moved at all, in fact gotten worse!

but yeah, Covid happened.

but still, I did go and get a masters, dated a lot and such. And what I want is still the same, get healthy, start a family, learn programming/gamedev, and of course find a steady job too.

I need to figure out how to enjoy things again without alcoholism, I don't want my rest of my life to depend on it.

I'm gonna focus and fix my self discipline.
Last month there were tons of local stores here doing year-end sale, so I couldn't resist and buy tons of videogames. Now? My wallet is getting thin and I am absolutely sick of myself when I see so many games lying in the closet gathering dust. These few weeks I am getting rid of some physical games and trying to avoid videogame shops and steam store as much as possible. This is going well so far because I haven't spent a dime on videogames. I am also putting effort into some of my other hobbies like plastic model kits.

You have already taken the first step by realizing that the addiction is damaging. So I would recommend avoiding alcohol section in supermarket and stores. And try to put your energy and attention into something else. I am sure that you will be able to win at the end. You have MC on your back. :dualbladesblob:

Today walking around paris I almost per instinct walked into a bakery to get some pastry. It’s going to be hard considering you can be anywhere in paris and only be at most 2 minutes away from a bakery.
