200!

After a little more than a year I’ve managed to reach my second last milestone of 200 lbs. (90 kg) – 25 lbs. (10 kg) more to go until I’ll reach my 2020 goal of a “normal” BMI.

Huge shoutout to my coach, Tanja Schlagenhauf – I wouldn’t be here without her counselling and advice – thank you!

Global Climate Strike

The latest reports from climate scientists are quite devastating, we’re getting close to what they call irreversible tipping points – do we really want to risk turning our earth into an inhabitable rock?

This Friday we were 630,000 people overall in Germany, according to the Fridays, protesting together against the inaction of our governments facing the climate crisis; in Cologne, we were in total 20,000 people on the streets.

Young Sheldon joined Jane Fonda for their weekly FireDrillFriday in front of the Capitol – at 11 years of age, Iain apparently has much more courage and intelligence than many adults!

On a positive note, the ailing Social Democrats have chosen a new group of leaders, and hopefully with it a more socially and environmentally friendly direction in their politics. Time will tell, though.
