            Happy new year to all you wonderful bees!

            I managed to finish the Calves of Steel challenge as well as the advent calendar on the 24th December. Then I stopped doing anything other than eating and enjoying time with friends, family, my loved one... But as it's a new year by now (doesn't feel thet different yet...), it's time to start at least doing something again.

            December 2019:
            22 days in total doing at least a little bit of something
            on average 4600 steps per day...

            Wednesday, 1st January:
            DD w/ EC (3 min march steps)

            Thursday, 2nd January:
            DD w/ EC (60 sec raised arm circles)
            Baseline, Day 1, Level 3

                Isn't it great? One of the main advantages of no longer living in Northern Germany for me

                Oh, and Happy New Year!


                  Definitely, sleep_twitch. Happy New Year to you, too!

                  1-Minute-Cardio-Challenge, Day 1 (jumping jacks)

                  I hate cardio... But just 1 minute, that sounds doable, even for me...

                        Friday, 10th January:
                        Baseline, Day 7, Level 3

                        Well, well... first, my little sister got married and then I got sick (sore throat and all)... But I'm back again.

                        Saturday, 18th January:
                        Baseline, Day 8, Level 3

                        Sunday, 19th January:
                        Baseline, Day 9, Level 3

                        Monday, 20th January:
                        Baseline, Day 10, Level 1

                        My blood pressure decided during the workout that it didn't like me going back to work after a week of sick-leave (went down to 91/63 and that's way too low even for my standards )... So I went back to the doctor's...

                        Tuesday, 21st January:
                        Baseline, Day 11, Level 3

                        Baseline, Day 12, Level 2

                        27 DD done, 23 with EC


                          nice to see you, Knirin! Hope yr doctor's thing is OK.


                            Yes, everything's alright again, thanks for asking, Colin.

                            Thursday, 23rd January:
                            Baseline, Day 13, Level 3
                            DD w/ EC (60 W-Extensions)

                            7 sets of 15 w-extensions plus 60 for the DD... nice.

                            28 DD done, 24 with EC


                              Oh, btw, I thought about my fitness goals for the year 2020, too.

                              What I came up with is the following:
                              1. Start again with Allkampf (martial arts) training after finishing my thesis at the end of April.

                              2. Manage to do at least one belt graduation this year. (I can't actually remember which belt I'm on at the moment... And I realized a few days ago that I've forgotten quite a lot of the moves already... 2 years out of training definitely aren't helping )

                              3. Do at least 6 Darebee programs - one every two months definitely is doable, right?:
                              - Baseline
                              - Zero Hero
                              - Cardio Blast (I hate cardio, but this would definitely help me improve a lot in that area...)
                              - Gravity
                              - Fighter's Codex
                              - Full Circuit
                              But if I can manage it, I'd love to finish 30 Days of HIIT, Spartan Trials, Power Up and Epic Five, too...

                              And then there's still the goal of someday being able to do real push-ups - and to do at least 20 of them in one go. But perhaps that goal has to wait until next year, we'll see.
