    And we also had our first snow! Unfortunately it was very late and quickly followed by icy rain, so I didn't have a chance to frolic. Next time though!

      well, I think you thought here would be a secret message hidden right? no, sorry, just testing the secret code ... ok, but I will give you one, but don´t tell anybody: "Winter is Coming and I am just before reaching world-domination"

            what a day, gets colder day by day ... we are nearing theLibrarian´s paradise

            Heaters are working again ... although the technician said that there are still some errors with the installation ... well, stay postive: they are working atm and my wife is happy again, what else to wish for

            I changed some challenge-dates, especially cold-shower and meditation - raised them to a year. Sounds good to me - TheLibarian never does things by halves.

            and now: happy

              One year of cold showers? I think next year you won't need someone for broken heaters. ^^

                Hell yeah, buddy. I've been taking daily cold showers for close to two years now. I start out with warm for the first 2 minutes and then switch to cold for the last four minutes. Most days it's great, some days it's miserable, but every day it's rewarding.

                I'm sure you're familiar with Wim Hof?

                  proabably no heaters for me - I am already my own gym, why not be my own heater as well. One year challenge, here we come

                  wow, 2 years is an amazing long time. What are your experiences so far? Have you made some ineresting discoveries throughout your journey?

                  In the beginning of my challenge I started out warm too and worked my way to the "cold side" step by step - what a hard work indeed - body wasn´t accustomed to cold showers - but now, since the second week, I go directly to the cold, sorry, I mean warm side, and enjoy my time there for 4-10 minutes, always depending on my mood, without alternating of the water temperature - just cold. Its amazing how your body adapts, and cold is definitely not cold if you get my drift. But you are right, every day is different, but every day is rewarding in the end.

                  So far I really like it, I go with a smile in and out of the bathroom And the body feels just amazing afterwards.

                  Wim Hof - of course - he is to blame that theLibrarian started with the cold shower in the first place I read a lot about him and his method and found it more then interesting! His 3 pillars (breathing, cold and meditation) addressed me. "The Cold is my warm friend" But I have to confess that I neglected a bit the breathing exercises, but meditation, yoga and cold-showers are still with me and helping me.

                        Time fo a cold shower... *hides*
                        If it won't be so sad, it would be funny. I'm crossing my fingers it will be fixed soon.

                              Last day of the snowballfight for me - it was a great event - and I will continue to cheer from the side, but time is a bit tight atm for theLibrarian

                              IronBorn felt good to day - I added some other exercises from my pysio as well, it worked out quite nicely.

                              cold shower: I experimented a bit, I had to think on what Wolfen wrote a bit earlier. Today I tried another approach, a few minutes warm in the beginning, and then I went cold for the last few minutes. It felt really good. Something like a contrast-shower, but without a "real" present of cold if you get my drift, sounds weird, right? yes, it is. nonetheless, still in my own rules for the cold-shower, so all is good. Normally I go to the shower after the workout in the evening and then directly cold. The body is still warm because of the workout, but not as warm as a few minutes warm-showering if you get my drift. The whole process today felt more, well, how best to describe it, more balanced and smooth I would say, just perfect. Well, lets find out, still some days left to play, right?

                              meditation: oh boy, today was hard, only got about 5 minutes right, it was really hard for me to keep at the task today. My mind was just wandering and I was with my thoughts somewhere else and a bit edgy, Well, you can´t force it, so tomorrow is another day. Nonetheless, 5minutes better then none, I will do anoter 5 mintuter later on, before bed, to get my 10 minutes of the challenge, though.

                              Heaters and hot water: we came home, and guess what: everything works again, heater and warm water is back online, well, at least for now, will keep you posted on the morrow

                              Wish you all a great Evening my bees
