Thu, 26 Apr 2012 15:15:10 EST Bikes, UFOs and a workout http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4844978 What a wonderful day. Since I was invited to a friend's party yesterday evening, I allowed myself to sleep in this morning. I was awakened at around 10 AM by the BF who has already been awake for several hours. <BR> The sun is shining and although the wind is kinda strong - just as the last days - I feel like a long walk outside today is at hand. As I wrote in a recent status update, I think that the stress I put myself under is really hurting my weight loss efforts. Not speaking of the amou... Sat, 21 Apr 2012 06:46:18 EST Sunday Short Workout - Bodyweight Sets http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4835648 Inspired by fitocracy, my Sunday workout on a usually "lazy day" was like this: <BR> <BR> Bodyweigt Jump Squat x 10 <BR> Bodyweight Lunges x 20 <BR> Pushups x 20 <BR> Bodyweight Squats x 30 <BR> Jumping Jacks x 100 <BR> Crunches x 30 <BR> Plank Hold x 45 sec <BR> Bicycle Crunches x 20 <BR> <BR> Short, pretty easy, broke a little sweat, feels good! + 10 minutes stretching afterwards. <BR> <BR> Just wanted to share the workout idea! Have a great Sunday :) Sun, 15 Apr 2012 07:28:53 EST The new, the old, the blue http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4829724 No, I'm not getting married. But my stepsister will. They announced it this Easter. We, the BF and I, spent the Easter holidays at my father, who, as you might know, now lives alone again after the death of my stepmother. <BR> It was really nice to see him so shortly after Christmas again, though I was really shocked how much everything seems to go out of hand there. My father never was the kind of man who was able to take care of a household alone, and sure I couldn't in this huge house asw... Wed, 11 Apr 2012 03:42:14 EST Exhausted, tired, but finally there. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4809217 We are here. <BR> <BR> Tuesday. <BR> BF gets sick. Have to take his part of the work, too, he tried, but he just can't. Going back to painting etc after a 4 hour exam at 8 AM. <BR> <BR> Wednesday. <BR> Packing my old apartment. Labelling everything, trying to get my furniture in portable pieces. Thanks for a specific swedish furniture store, it's kinda easy. <BR> <BR> Thursday. <BR> Early in the morning, BF's dad gets here. We rented a van and are ready for takeoff. BF still sick. Fir... Wed, 28 Mar 2012 14:54:25 EST I am more fit than he is, obviously http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4794342 The first weekend of extreme cleaning and painting is over. Ever little muscle in my body hurts, even though I took Arnica yesterday evening. It's still early in the morning, but I have an exam today and tomorrow and i have to do a little rest of studying etc. <BR> <BR> Let me tell you about the weekend while I have my deserved cup of coffee. <BR> <BR> I will skip Friday. Let's just say we were on a concert and it was a really bad idea to go because it did cost us a day where we could hav... Mon, 19 Mar 2012 04:34:14 EST oh finally http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4787424 Finally, finally, finally that guy who had our apartment until now let go of the key and we can pick it up tomorrow. Meaning that things can really start from now on. <BR> I can finish packing things, we can rent a car and set dates. All things concerning elecritcity, water, cable, internet etc are already set anyway so it's just the move itself that is missing. <BR> <BR> So, yay for some stressful times and yay for finally getting out of here. I'm gonna be so sore from carrying all that st... Wed, 14 Mar 2012 13:47:53 EST I can't think of a title so here you go http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4778944 After a week, the cold I caught last weekend seems to be finally gone without any further additions. Even though a sore throat is kind of annoying, it thankfully didn't develop into anything bigger. I just drowned myself in herbal tea and slept long, which seems to have done the trick. Why do I tell this in a blog like this? Well, I have been sick a lot during the last years. I got sick - really sick, like, stay-at-home-at-least-2-or-3-weeks-sick, at least twice a year, actually more often. ... Fri, 9 Mar 2012 10:29:36 EST Those inner demons http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4771214 The weekend is over and my mom managed to call me 2 minutes before my alarm went off, giving her a reason to ask me why I sleep in so long on a Monday morning! The answer that I have been working on a paper until 2 AM and therefore am allowed to sleep until 8:30 wasn't obviously that sufficient, but well. <BR> <BR> My motivation must have stayed in bed somewhere, I don't dare to search for it though, because I fear I might stay in bed, too. I decided to get dressed ( normally, I wear sweatpa... Mon, 5 Mar 2012 06:56:35 EST To keep in mind ... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4765034 It strikes again, every time the "free" time between two semesters returns. All days are not particularly ordered, and as much as I enjoy the first one or two weeks of this everytime, it just makes me lazy as hell. I don't know, the knowledge that I have all day to finish thing A, B and C just makes we postpone starting with them at all so that I am in a hurry or overthrow the whole plan in the evening. <BR> <BR> Keeping in mind that I need kind of a plan for my days even when they are off ... Thu, 1 Mar 2012 10:29:24 EST Checking in on the weekend thingie http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4758224 Well, as I said in my status not long ago, I intend to check in on what I planned. <BR> <BR> <BR> (1) I will not get myself stressed too much during this weekend. <BR> <BR> Yes indeed, it worked quite well. Even though the part with having lots of people here for visiting my apartment, the evening was nice and relaxed and so was the Sunday. <BR> <BR> (2) I will get up before 9 AM on Saturday, even though I intend to stay up late on Friday. <BR> <BR> I got up way earlier because of of... Sun, 26 Feb 2012 15:55:26 EST Speaking to myself, 1 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4754961 “Even though life may have moved wearily and painfully through such a person, they have still managed not to let it corrode their soul.

I'm sitting here with my cup of coffee - it's a christmas themed mug, silly things, they are out of season so easily - and my head full of projects. <BR> I had uni during the whole weekend, you know, one of these block seminars where you meet with the seminar group on Saturday and Sunday from 9 AM to 6 PM. These are quite exhausting, at least for the brain, endless discussion... Mon, 6 Feb 2012 03:52:57 EST When I don't work out, things do http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4697173 So many things are changing, and they are changing fast. <BR> We - that's the BF and me - got the apartment we applied for this time and everything is just wow. It's a pretty neat one, a decent size ( 65 squaremetres ( yes, metric, I'm too lazy to convert) ), has a decent price ( 490 Euros without electricity, water and cable )3, three rooms and also a pretty big cellar room. There is a kitchen which is pretty ugly but sifficient, it has a real stove, an oven and a freezer - sounds like heave... Sun, 22 Jan 2012 16:03:34 EST To love something that death can touch http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4673243 Maybe I'm not that much of a bad person as I always thought. Maybe my heart is lighter than I knew and maybe I love my father more than I thought. As of tonight, my stepmother died in the hospital. I have mentioned her in some of my blogs and if you know me a little, you might know that we were less than friends. We were able to live together for some days during the holidays and were able not to fight during these days, but basically we were two very different persons who did not get along w...

Fri, 6 Jan 2012 15:47:12 EST The 'mandatory' year recap. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4657273 I'm not really good at recapping years because I tend to forget things that happened. Although it might also be a good thing, it is mostly annoying because I have to - or want to - edit the recap I wrote like a million times because I remembered things I wanted to add. <BR> Nevertheless, as it is most likely mandatory to write something like this, I will try. Maybe it's easier to do it in a list? Let's see. <BR> <BR> - Lost 10 kgs and therefore finally reached the 20 kgs lost mark ( = 44 po...

I will not be at home for the last days of this year, as always, first visiting the family over the holidays and then going to visit friends to spend my silvester night and the days before there. <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/9/8/l986402812.jpg"> <BR> (http://fu.ckmenumb.tumblr.com/post/1419<BR>0878876) <BR> <BR> My preparations are almost ...

University brings me a workload that goes from 8 AM to 8 PM these days and then there is the preparation of christmas presents and all this stuff. <BR> I decided to re-trype my grandfathers life story and have it bound as a little book for my father and my aunt, including pictures from my grandfathers youth and the places he lived & so on. I really look forward to ... Fri, 2 Dec 2011 10:28:37 EST Cooking suggestions?

Since I got to know that I can actually change my studies to what I've always wanted to do, my enthusiasm towards "things that aren't really full of pleasure but have to be done" has risen by like 200%. I feel good! <BR> <BR> I actually don't have that much of an update to make, my DIY end plate still says it all.

This will be the last one http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4415965 Monday, 1 PM <BR> <BR> I have written about how I feel and everything else these last days.

I even slept kinda good, too long, but I didn't wake up after only 4 hours for the first time since I started this. I got tons of errands to run... Tue, 9 Aug 2011 07:05:50 EST Day 4. Calm on the outside again. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4414479 Monday <BR> <BR> 8 AM – I must have the willpower of an ox. Or wait, do they have a lot of willpower? I don't know. They are strong, though. So, I have as much willpower as oxen are strong. Or something like that. This is day 4, I'm still alive, my neighbours are still alive and so is everybody I met these days. I can be proud about that, right? I didn't even severely hurt someone. Too bad actually ... just kidding. I have a nervous twitch in my right eye. Now that's annoying! Never had that...
