this really made me laugh! and can we ever laugh to much?
i think not!
Happy Sunday folks ;p (i’m loving the word “folks” – so out of character ;p)
So its been 2 weeks since I got back to the gym, in those 2 weeks ive only went 3 times and hoping they would be 4 by the end of the week. You might think that this is too little, well let me explain to you why:
- What am doing is that am taking only classes for now, so am not doing any other kind of exercise except that. Yes it’s not the perfect idea, but I need to start slowly and catchup with the rest of workouts later! I havent moved my ass since ages, life has been very busy and going to the gym wasnt at the top of my list, so this to me is definitely a progress!!
- The first class that I have went to was a body pump class, I barely survived and was VERY sore for at least 4 days, sore to a limit that it hurts to sit and take the stairs, so even if I wanted to go to the gym, I literally couldnt.
- When my legs started feeling better, I went again for the same class (talk about determination lol) and lucky me the instructor agreed to just focus on the upper body part, which was great, but again I was left with sore arms for 3 days.
- I have also went to 2 stretching class that helped to ease the pain, but still I guess my body needs time to warm up to this.
- Today i thought to try the spinning class, the problem is that I know my knees kill me whenever I do this kind of class or take the stairs, but am willing to change that and I thought this is a good step towards it, don’t you think?
So am trying to take things slow, I know I have along way ahead, and honestly at this point, my aim is not really to lose weight! My aim is actually MOVE! I wanna get used to exercising and not to get easily tired and all of that. So am giving this a shot, and I will continue.
Tell me about your experience if you like :)
what i find really strange is that the balance of the world seems to be have tipped in the past couple of months..
everything seems to be going a bit crazy.. around the world and in my life too… i don’t know if everyone else feels the same…
there have been earthquakes around the world..
bombs – including boston, iraq, pakistan
other sorts of disasters: bangladesh collapse of factory building, mexico gas tanker blast
even the price of gold has been all over the place…
add in political and economic uncertainty
coupled with the fact that barcelona lost to bayern munich 4-0 the first leg – and 3-0 the second leg of the UEFA Champtions League… and life just doesn’t make sense anymore!
i just feel that the world seems to get more and more chaotic…
has it always been this way or have i just been more aware of the news?
its a really sad state of affairs and i really do wish that life was easier on a lot of people..
i wish we had more peace (as cliche as it sounds), mutual respect, and desire to help others succeed as opposed to pure selfishness…
tomorrow when i wake up.. i want to hear something good happening in the world.. i really do…
hey you guys!
i just read on 248am that expats in kuwait may now started getting deported for speeding! (according to Arabian Business)
now – personally.. i have been a bit of a speeder in the past (and occasionally at present) – and have had a travel ban placed on me in the past in kuwait… not one of my proudest moments ;p but it was hilarious in my head..
now while i believe that speeding is part of the problem!
while the rest of the problem is bad driving! perhaps there needs to be a look re-testing those that have licenses and have a certain amount of black points / accidents on their record…
surely taking licenses away would be more effective and a better method to deal with just traffic violations?
Well…techniqually…not yet there! But there’s no harm in preparing myself by writing this post and making it official so there wouldn’t be any way out! :P
It all started 3 weeks ago when I suddenly decided that I want to join the gym again, and not any gym, a gym that I would enjoy…feel comfortable at and have fun! So I thought of my friend who has been taking working out very seriously for the past year probably and have progressed dramatically. She has told me so much about her gym and how awesome it is, and I got a bit excited to be honest.
The fact is that am not a weight freak. I would love to be in perfect shape yes, I do have freaky diets every now and then YES! but I just think it would be a shame not to be active and workout on regular basis when I actually can!
So I made sure to pass by and checkout the place, it felt nice and decided to start a week after. Sadly that’s when I got sick and postponed the thing a week more. and then my mum got sick and we all got busy taking care of her! But now its official, next week ill be going to the gym, like it or not Moody, YOU ARE GOING!!
Anyone has any tips for me?
If you are a fan of Spartacus, then you probably know that the show has come to an end. Sadly, after 3 seasons only, the story has ended and we will no longer see those pretty faces or their six packs :P
This show had a lot of ups and downs since the role actor passed away and had to find another suitable for the character. Not only that, but the first season had so much drama, killing, revenge and action going on that we barely saw in the next seasons. I wasnt expecting much of it, but it was too late to stop as I was already hooked, so I just had to finish it and am glad that I did.
Not to give out too many spoilers, but the last season has more drama and action than the one before. They definitely took it to another level and got us all excited and waiting in the last 2 episodes. It didn’t end the way that I wanted, but I guess it was ok, though it could have been better.
Now since I was watching Spartacus a lot of people have told me to watch Game of Thrones and to be honest I wasnt very interested since I watched the trailer. But since Spartacus is over, maybe I should give it a shot after all!
Any shows you recommend?
Its been a while since I got seriously sick (alhamdulilah of course) and I have always thought of myself as someone who doesn’t have a sensitive stomach at all (cuz I basically eat anything) until this weekend, when I woke up and realised that I had the stomach flu. It was definitely not a pretty scene, a very painful feeling and 2 days of torture.
Apparently it’s happening to a lot of people specially kids these days, but I just didn’t expect it, and kept fighting until I couldn’t resist anymore. Thank god it only lasted for a day, and the next day was just recovery, but I was very happy to get back on my feet that soon :D
What also surprised me is that not only that I couldn’t eat a single bite of anything, but even smelling food, or looking at food pictures got me sick too!!! it was a disaster, specially when your parents starts experimenting their home remedies on you and you try your best to convince them otherwise, and they finally win..! not pretty.
Anyway, I shall be back on track soon, you stay healthy people, be careful as this thing can be contagious, so keep away !!!!!
since in the gulf countries – and across some of the middle east – we tend to work or go to school from Sunday to Thursday – i thought it’d be a cool idea to have sunday morning ‘wake up calls’
this can pretty much be anything that makes me smile – or laugh – a joke – a quote – an image of somewhere i’d rather be.. anything really
just a little pick me up for a sunday morning :)
“EatHealthyQ8 is a first of its kind Nationwide initiative that focuses on children with the help of their parents to improve their eating habits, and to curb the growing trend of childhood obesity in Kuwait. The EatHealthyQ8 Initiative is a collaborative effort by Diet Center Kuwait with the cooperation of the Public Administration for Private Education, The Ministry of Education, The Ministry of Health and the International Organization for Migration along with ARGANA Hotels and Resorts. The initiative of the initiative is to engage 10 different schools to enroll 30 children ages 11 to 14 in the EatHealthyQ8 program. The month-long program teaches children the benefits of proper eating habits and physical activities as part of a healthy lifestyle.”
This is such a great initiative that everyone should take seriously and support. I personally was one of the kids who grew up thinking that i always had to finish my plate, it didn’t make me fat, but it definitely forced me to take extra kilos here and there. Its something am working on myself and wanting to change. What about you?
