    A description of the “One Year Of Discipline” challenge can be found here.

    It was a great day which I used mostly for relaxation after a week of not getting more than 4 hours of sleep per night.

    Interestingly, my body fat has significantly dropped to 21.3%. Could be a big outlier, but I am definitely on my way to less body fat. Is that the work of the juices I drink?

    Below you will find

    (a) a quick description how I fared on my main goals – losing body fat, working on my blog, installing good habits;

    (b) my thoughts for the day;

    (c) how the rest of the program went and whether there were any irregularities or other noteworthy points.

    Day 10

    Losing body fat

    21.3%, an astounding loss of fat. No idea why so much all of  sudden, but I take it.

    Otherwise, today was my weekly cheat day, so I ate several servings of carbs and “unhealthy snacks”. I am definitely not able to eat as much as I once use to do, which I see as a good sign.

    The juice this day consisted of collards, carrots and – blueberries. I had an extra pint of them, so I decided to use them instead of the apples.

    Ok juice, I would have liked it a bit more sour. Next time, I’ll add a bit of lemon juice.

    Calisthenics routine:

    32 good form push-ups + 88 in worse form (half way down)

    120 squats in good form

    120 sit-ups in good form. The more I stretch my body out, the easier do these exercises become, because I use leverage from other body parts to move my upper body up. So I can take my legs a bt back and have auch harder time doing sit-ups. This is great, because then I can always improve and make the exercise harder.

     

    Working on my blog

    Took a bit of a break despite writing this article.

    Habits

    (a) Emotional Health: I had long email exchanges with one of my best friends from Germany.

    (b) Spiritual Health: I continued the Happiness Habit. What was I grateful for?

    1. Losing body fat.
    2. Enough sleep.
    3. Taking it easy today.

     

    (c) Mental Health.

    Thoughts for the day

    What did I do well?
    I relaxed, but still did my daily calisthenics.

    What do I want to improve?
    I got too much distracted with Social Media.

    How will I improve?
    Before I use the Internet, I will state a specific reason (e.g. post three things I am happy about on twitter) and then only use the specified webpage.

    How did the rest of “30 Days of Discipline” go?

    Slept until 10 am (instead of 7 am), ate snacks and unhealthy food. The rest remained as always, including the cold showers.
