Day 12 of the Challenge started pretty normal. I woke up,had breakfast, did some work - finished my first Translation job (wohoo!), had lunch (with vegetables and salad) and started to do some stuff for Uni. But then suddenly the Screen of my laptop froze… nothing worked anymore. So I tryed to restart it and….nothing happened! I mean, yes, it did happen something but not what it supposed to be. It just told me that Windows can’t be loaded and I would need a recovery CD, but I didn’t have one. At least I thought that for about 2 hours when running in panic through my room and thinking about what to do. Then I found one I had forgotten about and it took me another 3 hours or so to finally get it to work again. So, todays post is some kind of miracle . I even thought about some comfort eating as I still have half a pack of chocolate cookies in the kitchen, but then I saw, that Dirty Dancing was on TV, so that saved me from doing something I would regret (It’s Sunday so it wouldn’t have been that bad, but I still didn’t want to do it).
I also did Sports Active today, the first minutes, my laptop was off when I still hoped that it would work again after some cooldown time. Helped me to release the Stress too.
So todays Summary is, that I now appreciate my laptop much more than today morning, that I know that I can access Facebook via my Wii and that I was strong enough to resist chocolate in an Emergency.
Was your Sunday better? I hope so! Leave me a comment.
P.S. When the sentences in this post make even less sense than they normal do then it is because of the last few hours and their aftereffects.

First two-digit-day of my Challenge today! Everything went a bit different to the last few days today as I normally ate at a certain time (or tried to) and today friends came over and we had a “food session”. They brought Pasta salad and Tiramisu and I made another kind of Tiramisu (Apple tiramisu, delicious!). That means that I practically was eating half of the afternoon, but it was big fun! We all agreed in doin that again soon. Maybe we even create a Facebook-Group for it. (“The not-anonymous eat addicts” or something like that ) Oh, and I nearly forgot – no chocolate in Tiramisu so I’m still fine with my Challenge !
In the evening I did some Sports Active but today it was more tiring than the last week when I did it. After that I ate Dinner, loads of it.. and now I’m stuffed and tired. But at least I ate a piece of cucumber with the Dinner.
Ok, that’s it already for today again. Please give me Feedback, if you died already of boredom about my posts or if you like what I do here, or what you would wanna hear (more) of.

Day 9 of my Challenge. Made it to four meals today when I include the snack with a joghurt and walnuts and raisins in the afternoon and ate Salad with the meals (not with breakfast and the snack tho). Today I did Sports active in the Morning because it was scheduled that I had to work in the afternoon again and yesterday it screwed my plan to do it in the evening, so I did it in the morning to find out after lunch that I don’t have to work today (wasn’t really sad about that).
Again I ate no chocolate even tho I had a BIG trial today as I was shopping for some decoration stuff for tomorrow (friends will come over and we will eat delicious stuff like apple tiramisu) and when I was in the area where they had the office supply stuff, there was the HUGE chocolate area directly next to it including an easter market! I rushed through that with my eyes pinned to the shelves with the office supply stuff . BUT, I made it! I’m proud of myself .
I’m also proud of myself about other stuff. About my blog, that I still stick with posting here, and that people still read it, exciting!
What I’m also proud about is yesterday’s “t-shirt reconstruction”-session I had. Ok, I finished just one shirt, but it turned out pretty good for the plain and really old t-shirt i started with. Maybe I post a Pic about that later.
Ok, that’s it for today. See you tomorrow with my first two digit Challenge Day.

First Day of second week of my Challenge today. I ate well including Salad and an Appel today and no chocolate but I didn’t have time to do Sports Active even tho I was looking forward to it and now I’m too tired and directly heading to bed. What reminds me, that I’m also already 45 Min. late for Bedtime so I stop writing now and go to sleep. Good Night!

The first week of my Challenge is already over. That was quick! So today went pretty much the same way than the days before, no chocolate but a bit of veggies. No Sports Active as I already said yesterday because it’s a Breakday today. Haven’t done anything else sportwise yet but I’ll go to a club with my girls later so I might get some excercise on the dancefloor . That will be fun!
Ok, it seems that I’m not very talkative (writative?) today so I stop it here now. See you tomorrow!

It’s day 6 of my Challenge already, woho. Today again no chocolate for me but I also didn’t really felt an urge for it anyway. In exchange I ate again Salad with my meals and some Grapes after.
Sports Active I did too today even tho I felt a few of my muscles (which I forgot that I have) before already. Tomorrow is a Breakday again and I felt a little sorry about that, maybe I’ll do something else instead tomorrow.
Today I also realised that I told you about trying to “fix” my sleeping Schedule but haven’t spoken about that since. So, it did get a lot better already. About two weeks ago or so I spent most of the Nights awake and even saw the sunrise a few times (I did not really “see” it as it was cloudy most of the time but I saw how it became lighter). Last week I decided to go to bed at 12 during the week and at 2 at weekends and get up at 9 / 11 (funny number.. oO ) in the morning. I didn’t manage to make it perfectly on time, I messed it up for about 0,5-2 hours a few times but it’s still a lot better already.
I hope this helps me, when Uni starts again next week (OMG next week already, I haven’t done anything of what I planned for the holidays yet *panics*) At least I were at Uni today to sign up for a few more classes I wanna take. My timetable looks already insane again, but I get used to that. It lightens up during the semester anyway, so I don’t bother much about that.
Ok, enough of my thrilling life for today (/irony off) and see you tomorrow (hopefully). I’d love, if you leave a comment below on how you like the blog/Challenge or anything else you think I might be interested in.

I’m back with my Summary of Day 5. Today I could have had Chocolate as it is Sunday but I didn’t eat any, even tho I thought about it twice or so. I want to try to eat none at all until April 3rd (end of lent). I ate Salad with my meals again and a Banana Milkshake in the afternoon.
I also did Sports Active again today and I realised that I have no muscles at all, this needs to change. I also weighed myself and found out that I gained 2 kg since the last time I did it (but don’t ask me, when it was, I think it was somewhere around Christmas or New Year). I should probably start doin some excercises for my belly in addition to Sports Active as this is the part of my body who annoys me and Sports Active didn’t do anything (yet) about that, just cardio workout in general what does help too but maybe not effective enough. Maybe I do a few crunches later, but didn’t decide yet.
Besides I just watched a documentation about a personal trainer and his daily job and that motivated me. To see other people work hard to lose weight (not really my goal) and become healthy and do sports. And this Trainer gets 200€ per hour! Wow! I want to do that too, I think I’m good at kicking another one’s ass…*cough*. But first I have to achieve that for myself.
So that’s all for today, see you tomorrow with my next update.
P.S. No that’s unfortunately not my belly in the picture but it would be a good motivation .

Day 4 of the Challenge is over and I thought of Chocolate only once. A few years ago I might have already freaked out about it I think, but lately I sometimes even don’t want something sweet anymore. In the past I could have lived only of sweet stuff. Not that I don’t like it at all anymore, I’m far away from that, but it feels like I changed a little. I ate some cucumber with my lunch today and some grapes during the day.
I didn’t do Sports Active today, because the Program said it is a Break-Day today for my body to rest(It’s always 2 Days of Workout and 1 Day Break I think). However, I thought about doin something else instead but then thought it might be good to stick to the Plan. Oh, I did some e-sports today but I guess that doesn’t count .
So that’s all for today. Would love to hear from you how you are doin with your Challenge (if you have one), if you wanna join or have suggestions for me.

If you haven’t read about my personal Challenge yet you can read it here.
It’s day 3 already, woho. My behind *cough* hurts a bit of yesterdays Sports Active exercises. Yes, I know, that means I’m totally lame at Sports but at least I try . I did Sports Active today too and I was looking forward to it!
Staying away from Chocolate was no Problem for me today even tho the Cookies in my Cupboard were smiling at me very friendly for a second, but that was just one, so everything’s fine. Again I ate pretty healthy today, tryed to stop eating when I’m not hungry anymore (that might sound strange to some people who do that all the time but i don’t/didn’t) and had again Salad with the Lunch and half a Cucumber with Dinner and Grapes in between. Loads of good stuff for me! I also thought about weighing myself once in a while to see if something changes, but thats not my goal as I don’t have a Problem with my weight.
Oh btw, did I tell you about another thing I try to change in my life atm? I wanna try to change my sleeping schedule from “Nightowl” to “average”. I always liked staying up at night and it’s hard for me to get up earlier but I think I get a lot more done when I do (hopefully).
I think about giving you an update every day for the next 40 days , also to practice writing at the blog a bit, but I’m not totally sure if it works out. We’ll see. Maybe I surprise myself like I did the past two days. Hopefully these are not too much changes at the same time. Wish me Luck!
I hope you do well with your Challenge(s) in life too and maybe you wanna tell me about in the Comments!
