  • ॐ नमः शिवाय oṃ namaḥ śivāya / reading a book about the background and effects of different asanas
  • Friday evening with Lena: Yuzu ramen at Takumi, watching Green Book at the City Kino near Sendlinger Tor. Getting my favourite mix of sweet and salty popcorn.
  • Still: Obsessively reading the Rivers of London series by Ben Aaronovitch. It's like one of those nasty TV series you just can't stop watching.
  • Noticing more visible veins and sinews on my body. Getting stronger and leaner! Yes! I can even see a little shadow where my ribcage is supposed to begin and my tissue is getting softer which means I'm losing fat and I can feel more muscles than before. Very rewarding.
  • Saturday lunch with Lena and her family. I hadn't seen her brother in maybe 10 years. My highlight: warm banana bread with slightly salty, thick caramel and homemad...

RELEASE - What did you let go of this year? // I let go of a lot of weight. Quite literally. I established some healthy routines for myself like certain food rules and trying to move every day. Which made me lose 35kg and made me feel great. I learned that doing a little bit every day has so much power. I also had to sell my car which was a big step for me. Now I’m relying on public transport, my own feet, my bicycle. And you know what? Right now I wouldn’t want to go back. Sure, there are times when a car would come in very handy but I’m used to these obstacles by now. There is always a way. And not having a car forces me to lead a much more active life.

ACCOMPLISHMENTS - What were you deeply proud of doing, making, being, etc. this year? What made you feel good? // I just had a look at my 2017 and 2018 goals and noticed that I actually managed to meet most of them. It might have taken me longer than one year but that’s absolutely fine. Slow progress is still be...
