Just A Bit Closer

The past week I have been trying to go the gym a little more but with a lot of work, social & family events I barely made it to the two I usually stick to. I have some what managed to increase my strength a bit at the gym through all the work outs for the past 6 weeks but this past week I totally pigged out, my meals were totally messed up.

I try to keep things light at night but last week I ate way too much so this week I’m trying to keep it simple. There is one thing that I am very proud that I have achieved at last, one thing that I never thought I could do since I was a kid.

After all this time I managed to touch my toes while keeping my legs straight. That is something which I didn’t think was possible, but when I did I was extremely happy. My stretching capabilities have improved so there are a few things that are getting better and I hope to keep improving, also the key in my case is to eat healthy. Sometimes I have ridiculous cravings like Ice Creams or Burgers, or in this case Elevation Burger. I hope to keep this up because I am liking the progress and there are results, I just feel healthier and better.

The Work Out Regime

Yesterday was the first day I went to the gym as part of my plan, and I have lessened the amount of food I consume recently as well. Overall the plan is somewhat working, I feel a bit healthier and better overall because I’m sleeping lighter. Still I’m not even the same league as M.F.W since he is going over board with pretty much everything, he set his sights to destroy me in every way shape or form but I have plan to win.

After working out at C Club for about an hour I felt that I didn’t have the right type of direction or help that I need and recently I found out about a new gym called Inspire who have trainers who pretty much put you through your worst physical nightmare to get you into shape and on your time. People recommended Core and Sidekick to me, and they are excellent gyms but they aren’t for me. M.F.W trains every morning between 6 and 7 am and at Core Fitness then goes to the gym again after work then plays football twice a week, not including barely eating anything but protein at this point. He may have a head start on me but I am very good on planning and this time around I will execute these plans.

Tempest Freerunning Academy

Parkor and Freerunning is one of the coolest physical sports that I have seen, they are like modern day ninjas with what they do. Now Tempest is a new Academy in a LA and their training wharehouse looks like one giant video game, this is one of the coolest videos I have seen in a while, it feels like a Nintendo video and especially at the end when all the foam pieces is flying around.

@ 92.8

Its been a bit of hectic couple of weeks with work and family, and when I have a chance I eat what I can. Usually I try to eat a few times a day to keep losing weight but at this point I think I have bottomed out. On a normal morning I would weigh around 92.8 KG, and the lowest I reached in the last two weeks was 91.7 which was pretty good, and the drop has been on the slow side for the past month but overall I’m very happy. From 107 KG to 92.8 over a 5 month period which is really good but the last month has been around a kilo or two at most, I had a faster drop initially. I have also had a few more off days the last two weeks then I usually do but thats probably because I keep thinking that Ramadan is around the corner. I know I need to start going to the gym consistently because its the only way I’m going to lose more weight. One thing I’m going to try during Ramadan is not to eat too much at Futoor because I know I’m going to be hungry as hell.

Ridiculously Out Of Shape

AddidasRunningShoes

I have come to the very clear conclusion over the last two weeks that I have reached the worst physical shape that I have ever been in, not as in gaining weight but as in endurance or any physical activity what so ever. There are a few factors that have lead me to this conclusion.

Walking:

When I was walking the long walk in Dubai Terminal after landing with Wataniya Airlines I felt like that became a very long corridor and I was walking very quickly and quickly running out of breath, when an old gentlemen passed me as if this is normal walking pace, then another gentlemen over took me while I was trying to catch my breath. That was a very apparent indication as to my health is not in the best of shape.

25th & 26th Weekend

During that weekend I ran into several limits of my physical capabilities. As I was tossing some of those balloons at young children feeling like a very big man, and any victim that I can see, I ran into a problem. I pulled my shoulder muscle and my back felt out of whack, I felt like a really old man who could barely move, that was a very sad feeling. The second day I decided just to watch and laugh, but towards the end of the day our neighbors kids ran out of people target so they decided to target us, I never knew that 7 to 11 year old kids could be so evil, they ran after us with those foam cans and some of my friends suddenly became ridiculously fast and I was running for my life when the kids caught up with me and pounced on me. I felt like a deer between cheetahs, never in my life did I think I would be slower then a 7 year old kid, thats a new low.

The Solution:

Simply enough, there is no way around this, I need to get back into shape, I’m going to start it realistically but I’m going to start it and stick to it.
