Cutting down time

Since I started the new job, about eight months ago, I have noticed myself spending a lot of time indoors. The working hours are 9 to 5, but sometimes I end up leaving the office at 6 or 6:30.

Once I get home, there is nothing to do except watching television and going to sleep. Well, we do arrange outings, dinners and movies once in a while. Weekends are usually hectic, but nothing which require physical effort.

As a result, I have noticed a few kgs creeping up, so I guess its a wakeup call to act. Well, last week I decided to go to the gym, actually am not a gym person, I have never been to a gym in Oman, but since its my only option here, I decided to give it a try.

I called a friend who told me he has a spare promotional ticket, so off we went.

I have nothing to compain about the gym, state of the art equipment, no waiting or any machines, excellent service. I then head to the changing room. One thing I can never get used to living in this country is seeing people fully dressed in their birthday suits, yes there they were, guys in birthday suits without a care in the world. Oh well, I had to proceed trying to keep my eyes at head level.

Since I started exercise, I have been obsessed with wait loss. I am in it for getting fit, but I started going for the scales. I found it quite interesting the way our bodies behave, for example, my ideal weight is 75 kgs. I have gone as low as 68 or 69, and I wasnt happy with my weight, it took me a long time to increase it. I have now gone to 78/79, so I have to work hard and get it down.

I started taking my weight every morning, or whenever I can, its interesting how the weight varies throught the day.

Anyway, my goal is to get to 72, lets see how long that will take, wish me luck :)
