    And another day wasted at work. Anything we did this week will be destroyed next week because, as usual, our boss has no idea how to coordinate with other companies that work on the same construction site. So we started building stuff and pulling up walls and today the geothermal heating guys tell us that they will start next week and everything we built is in their way and therefore has to go. It would be much cheaper for the company if we just got in every morning and the boss hands everybody a 50€ note that we burn. And then everybody goes home at 7:15 am. I can not understand how some employees have worked here for nearly 20 years. I´ve been here half a year and after only two months my motivation and optimism did one of those "horny eagle death spirals". And they were never seen nor heard from again...

    Agility Day 2:done. Easy peasy, squeeze the lemon.
    Chest and Back Medium : done

    I went back to my workout plan, because I still think it can work if I would just keep it up for longer than one week

      Good to see you back, buddy. Sorry to hear about the motivation missing in action. Sometimes all we can do is keep pluggin' away until we discover something that sparks the motivation again.

        And a Happy New Year to you all!

        Yeah, I´m back. Once again. I finally found out why I have such a problem sticking to my workouts. I simply don´t have a reason to stick with them. No partner for whom I have to look good, noone I care about. And I do not value my life. At all. If I´d get struck by lightning or got run over by a bus tomorrow, I simply couldn´t care less. Sure, I´m in terrible shape, my health is terrible, I´m addicted to video games and I might be starting to develop a behavior that will definitely end in alcoholism. But why change? The thing is, I have nothing to live for. Don´t think I ever had. And before yall start to worry, I´m not suicidal. I´m much to scared of pain that I´d ever hurt myself.

        Now the good news. I want to change. I want to get a grip again, I want to be able to walk a mile without being out of breath. I want to meet a nice girl and be happy again. I´m turning 25 this year and I haven´t had a meaningful relationship since I´ve been 18. But how do I start? Thing is, I can´t remember how life was before. I´ve always been different, always been an outcast. I´ve felt the way I do today since I´ve been 13 years old. At least that´s how far back I can remember. Somehow I muddled through for 12 years, got up every day to start another day is this miserable life.

        So, I started with the one thing I can control. Myself. I started to excersice again and I´ve got a little helper now. I simply set an alarm on my phone. Every day at 6 pm my phone will remind me to excersice. It worked when I was still a student, so hopefully it will work now. And maybe it´ll boost my confidence a bit. Gods know I need it.

        Now, the deets. I started simple. Did the "Better Than Nothing Workout". 7 sets, 30 seconds rest. After that was done, Did Day 1 of Easy Cardio.

        See yall tomorrow, then.

            Welcome back, you are actually starting at the right place. Strength starts from within first, and then permeates the rest of life.

                  Pfff. Huh. Realized today that maybe I didn´t start that simple yesterday. But hey, the sweat means it´s working. Started my workout at 10 past 6, setting an alarm works. "Better than nothing", 7 sets, 30 seconds rest. After that the 50 Step Jacks for Easy Cardio Day 2. In one go.

                  I had an idea how to combine my workouts with something I love. Music. So everyday I´ll post one "song of the day" for whoever wants to know what music I´m into. Fair warning though, I´m into a lot of different music

                    Happy New Year, brother. Off to a good start. I feel your pain, though.

                      6 pm may not be a doable time after all. I barely managed to put something somewhat edible together before my alarm rang. Maybe have to set it to 6:30 or so, will look into that.

                      Chest and Back lite. 3 sets, 30 seconds rest. I hate shoulder day, because my shoulders hate me. Easy Cardio Day 3, done

                          I hate my boss. We work every day 9 hours instead of 8, so we can use to overtime when the weather is bad. Because working outside in a snowstorm, regular storm, heavy rain or during a thunderstorm sucks. A lot. It´s been raining and snowing and raining here for over a week, so he had the marvelous idea that we three trainees should pave his backyard. DURING A FREAKING SNOWSTORM!!! When we finally went home because of the terrible weather (half an hour earlier than we normally would, wow) I barely made it home. I changed from my workboots into my normal shoes (cause I can´t drive with my boots, at least not my car), wiped the snow from my windshield and side windows, started the car and... completely snowed in again, didn´t take longer than a minute. I somehow made it home, even though I couldn´t see jack with all the snow blowing around, the wind nearly blew my car into the opposite lane way too often, the frequent lightnings were distracting as hell and the thunder was louder than my car radio... If today was not a "bad weather day", I don´t know what would be


                          Refresh Workout. Needed something easy because today was really exhausting. Easy Cardio Day 4, done. 50 Step Jacks in one go

                          Seemed fitting for today

                            That sucks! Glad you made it home safely!

                                *incoherent exhausted mumbling* Kill me now. Everything hurts. My legs started hurting as soon as I got home, shoulders came as soon as I sat down at my desk. I still got back up to do my workout. Don´t know why I chose Stopgap, just know it was a mistake. Don´t do cardio when you´re so exhausted you can barely move. Somehow made it through 3 sets. After that Easy Cardio. Ha, Day 4. Easy, I already did all those Step Jacks. Sadly I realized that today was day 5

                                Powered through somehow. I don´t think I´ll be able to move at all tomorrow. But in the immortal words of Werner: "Ein Glück, morgen ist Berufsschule."
