NoNothingNovember, Days 1 and 2

A description of the #NoNothingNovember challenge can be found here:

As promised, here is my journal so far:

Day 1 and 2

Sleep – I slept 8 hours from Day 1 to Day 2 and then 6 hours from Day 2 to 3. The 8 hours of sleep were easy because I had tired myself out the whole week before. The 6 hours were significantly harder, because I was so excited about starting my blog and would have LOVED working more on it that very evening. Yet, I know it’s better to keep something to look forward to the next day, when I am well rested.

Sweets and snacks – knowing that that would be challenging, I indulged myself in a lot of snacks before day 1, so on that day I was basically still full from the day before. On day 2, I made myself some oatmeal with blackberries, apples and honey. Delicious. I did not miss store-bought snacks at all.

Social Media – that was a bit easier. First of all, on both days, I posted the three things I am grateful for as status updates in the morning, then I logged out and did not touch it again until the next morning. I think that was possible because on day 1, I focussed on my lab work, while on day 2 I focussed on producing content for my blog. I have eMail notifications enabled, so I am sure I won’t miss anything important, e.g. if someone sends me a request.

NoNothingNovember, on to day 3!
