Dropped out
----------- 5% Summer Challenge 2012 ------------
I'm participating in the Summer 5% Challenge!

Things are wild. I'm going through a major transition from being part-time self-employed to stepping into entrepreneurship. Whatever that might mean.
It is like being pregnant. Waiting a long time for that special moment, hoping and fearing what might happen, but overall joyous.

I'm participating in the Summer 5% Challenge!

Things are wild. I'm going through a major transition from being part-time self-employed to stepping into entrepreneurship. Whatever that might mean.
It is like being pregnant. Waiting a long time for that special moment, hoping and fearing what might happen, but overall joyous.
So while thinking, planing and creating I sometimes almost miss a day. To do something daily is an illusion (only when business is involved, it works!). But every other day is manageable. Where do all these hours go?

----------Love your Life - Live your Love!----------
Ok, things I read and learned recently seem to point into one direction. Western civilization, as good as it is, leads to a mindset of getting more and more and that immediately.

We live our life and something is missing, so we buy something or eat something and try to fill the emptiness. Oh yes, we can pay with our creditcards, we can have it all - NOW.

But, what happens?
Our homes become cluttered, our bodies heavy and obese.

What do we want? A simple and instant solutiion. NOW.

But this doesn't work. In most cases there is no instant solution or instant gratification.

We have to work towards our goals, enjoy our rewards, go slow, step by step. Only this way we can be proud of ourselves.

Postponed reward, not because we are poor or can't afford it, but out of choice!

Just a question: Do we really need strawberries in January? What need will be fulfilled? What about waiting till it is their time and we can savor their flavor and know, that we waited for it and waited for the perfect and natural time. What a reward, what a joy!
----------- 5% Spring Challenge 2012 ------------
I'm participating in the Spring 5% Challenge! Yeah!

I'm with Sparkpeople for a while, but life happened and I didn't make progress. I was focused on other areas of my life.

Now is the time to lay the basis for my future. Not through thinking or planning, but through acting and LIVING!

My overall goals:
Be healthy, fit and flexible.
Make my business thrive.
Live in a pleasant environment.
Own what I need and let everything else go.

Yes, it is a time of cleaning, clearing and acting.
Does the sentence "I have to sort through that pile(s) of paper and have to file them away" sound familiar to you? Welcome to the club! This is the next big personal project, to work on that paper! One piece at a time, one pile at a time!

And I'm doing a virtual walk from Munich to Venice, a livelong dream of crossing the Alps.

Why I want to loose weight?
It is more about making some lifestyle changes and making healthy choices.
To be able to walk longer distances and enjoy nature.
To have less pain or even become painfree in my back and my knees.
To feel better.
To move easier.
To honor life.
