What's going on with this?

I am not an expert - there are more qualified members than me, but to my mind you need to start eating more, and do a starting strength basic programme.  No need for fancy shit which is ineffective anyway.

Look up Starting Strength by Mark Rippletoe.  He's the man.

He's been going for years and has always been the best.  All these young kids poncing around, roided up...All wrong.

Listen to old man rippletoe speak for 5 minutes and you should be convinced : he's the man.

Remember : old school is best...IN LITERALLY EVERYTHING!

I see there is some motivational activity on my journal. I know Rippletoe is highly recomended though I am going to follow a Kinobody program due to its enfasis on looks. I know it follows Mark's principles though. About eating more... I don't think so, my current diet is quite clean (the worst I eat is bread) because I am trying to lose body fat and eating healthy makes me not to need much food. I am aiming for the fit lean look instead of highly muscular. So we will see how it goes.

My nogym workout (till I get into one):

7 times per week (fuck resting time, this is not such a hard workout)

1. Weighted Chinups (30 reps + 0,5kg per week)
2. Bodyweight Pushups (Previous Day Limit + 1)
3. Running (No more than 30', I won't surpass 2' at the beginning, though)
4. NoFap (most important training ever) sinergizes well with NoPorn.

Estimated time: 10'-35'.  Estimated hour of training: 6 a.m. (this is going to hurt, like really)

Diet: I eat 2-3 times per day, depending on my hunger, almost everything is proper food. I don't drink soda nor eat procesed food. I am quitting coffee.

+30' walking per day: I will get some audiobook or something for weekends. Regular days I am going to walk a lot in order to sell, so no need.

+Waking up naturally: Aiming for the 8 sleep hours→Apparently your testosterone is ok, if you have a morning erection. I might track that lmao.→Reading book from 20 to 21 to avoid blue light so I can sleep→Currently reading: The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand.

Tracking method: I am putting a reply here after every sucessful training time.

+Cold Showers: This is involuntary, but I might as well take them into account. Not really sure they are that great, but whatever.

I will post a couple of photos on my results every 14 workouts.

Goal: The slim-muscular 'fuckboy' frame.

1st training done:
20+10 chinups (0,5kg)
30 pushups
Running (no idea, but 3 min at least)
NoFap+No Porn= ✓

Good job putting together a routine despite not having a gym...getting things done regardless of your circumstances will service you well in life. I'm going to toss in my two cents and you may do with it what you like: while you have a lot of good ideas and intentions, I think you are allowing your enthusiasm to overshadow any sort of prudence. What do I mean by this? Assuming these are all new habits, I think you're trying to do too much all at once. You're like someone with a terrible hunger in their stomach trying to order everything off the menu--I'm hear to say you should reconsider.

Speaking from experience, one of the pernicious ways we sabatoge our efforts is to create regimens for ourselves that are nearly impossible to fulfill. I see you already putting extraneous demands on yourself that I think are failure traps...for instance, why 6 a.m.? In addition to adding all of these great new habits in your life, you demand that some of them ALSO happen at 6 a.m. A good plan facilitates flexibility and the ever changing fluctuations of daily life: to be so rigid is your subconcious planning for failure; and when you fail, you'll be the one flagellating yourself while repeating the mantra: I'm not worthy. I'd nix the no-fap, cold showers, and 6 a.m. workout schedule. These seem somewhat unecessary for a better body, and, while possibly good habits for you to inculcate, you should do them at another time...plz see them as separate problems to attack. Another option is to stagger your habits over the course of time, so you don't make all these changes at once. Each week or two, add a new item to your daily routine.

For myself, I have a high margin of error: since consistency is more important than any degree of effort, I see a 20% success rate as a WIN when what has hitherto been 0%. Even if you're nothing close to perfect, DON'T QUIT. Any effort in the right direction is infinitely preferable to standing still.

You are right, but the only thing' I am really trying to do is the workout. The only reason I choose 6 a.m. is because I leave at 7 a.m. so if I make it the first thing, I will not have to worry about it for the rest of the day. The days I leave later I will do it later, the idea is 1st thing' after waking up.
About the cold showers: It is not by choice, we cannot heat water unless I go to the kitchen and heat it there. I just mentioned it as I have to do It anyway.
About NoFap+NoPorn, this is something I will try because when I avoid both I feel better. It is not my most important thing but instead of tiring me it gives me energy for everything else.
So I only really care about doing the workout, the rest is a bonus.

A fair response! If I were you, I'd then pick one or two things from that list and qualify them as ESSENTIAL...a sort of bare minimum for success. Everything else you accomplish will be a BONUS. This will psychologically reorient yourself towards patterns of success--what's important is that you string together as many dopamine hits as possible. If you create low barriers for success and reframe everything else as a BONUS, then you'll crave those good feelings of accomplishment rather than feel obliged.

Yes, my essential is the workout, the rest I can fail and no problem but the workout is not negociable. 
You mentioned dopamine, in my ideal life all my sources of dopamine would come from being productive and getting results. The #1 goal of this journal is creating a lifestyle where all my time is spent being productive or enjoying something valuable. At the moment, it is time to get ripped AF.

This motivates me:

It depends. I know after a while of regular coffee consumption I get adrenal fatigue. But I want to avoid it mostly because I am trying to white my teeth. 
But moderate caffeine consumption is usually healthy, can even improve testosterone.
I am almost used to cold showers. And I mean COLD. But running while rainning I am like, fuck it. 
I still did the rest of the training, though.
