That's #100days done

Earlier this year I set out to do the #100days challenge (read more over here). I planned on doing some form of exercise for 100 days.

I kept a list of everything I did over the past 100 days, excluding the walk up and down 9 flights of stairs almost every day.

All in all I can't say I'm very satisfied with the results. I am, however, proud of the fact I kept my promise and actually made it to the finish. That's something, right?

When it comes to my weight, I started this year at 97kg and this morning I was at 95,1kg. This sucks big time. I thought I'd be at 90-ish kg by now, so it's a bummer I'm not even close. I can't blame anyone but myself, if you look at the list you can tell I've been slacking with "5 minute workouts before bed" on an all too regular basis.

What's next

For the next 100 days I am challenging myself professionally, stepping away from the comfort zone that is Laravel, and get more acquainted with what's powering it. I've been very lucky with Laravel (it basically got me where I am today), but I feel I don't understand PHP (vanilla) enough to fully embrace it. I'm also attempting to finish the first book of Game of Thrones, reading before bedtime instead of mindlessly scrolling Twitter.

On top of that, to keep the spirit of fitness going, I'll be doing three workout routines at my dad's "home gym" a week and keep walking with Denise every now and then.

This time, though, there won't be a #hashtag that comes with it, unless I feel the need for public accountability and the occasional update.
