Two weeks ago my old friend Zee told me about an Arm Wrestling competition that was taken place in TNT Gym at Jabireya. We went there to check it out.

It wasn’t just arm wrestling it was also fitness, and strength. It was fun cheering the guys and seeing them spending their time in something healthy.

then the main event was the arm wrestling which i took the video for, the number of guys who registered for the arm wrestling wasn’t much but they were enough to compose the competition. Thanks Zee ;)

Easy Healthy Meals Perps

Major part of healthy living or phase transition like weight loss or body building is to prepare meals by yourself or at least under your supervision. Though i believe in this, i find it very challenging to do so. My main challenge is time and i really hate complex recipes.

What it’s great like about FitMenCook, he creates simple healthy picture perfect meals and lists nutrition facts to help you in your goal. For those are into high protein, this guy uses protein mix whenever it’s possible.

Last week i’ve been going around keeping my self as buys as i can, so i desided to go to Yasmin farm in Wafra to get some Kuwaiti organic food. I went there two weeks ago with Itsallg000d and i really like what i bought from there and it was a different experience.

The store is small but amazing and very cute. I found the cow bells, i tried to make them knock, they where really heavy :s but their sound was fun to hear so i kept knocking and knocking until the sales man gave me the look :|

Diet Care advice on how to eat at restaurants

Sunday, July 8th, 2012

Once again i attended diet care event that was held last Tuesday 3rd of July at the chef boutique :)

The event was about how to order at a restaurant and make your order healthy as possible. The event was at 7 O’clock and since i live relativity near by i decided to take my new 3900 Trek bike and ride to the event ;)

I arrived early as usual, people started coming slow because it wasn’t easy to get to the chef boutique you could get lost but anyway we started the event with the Chef Pall as he gave us advice on how to order in Italian, Mexican, Lebanese and Japanese restaurants because the are the most common restaurant we go to in Kuwait.

Basically you should order food with less calories, fat, sugars and carbs since we can’t control the portion sorta speak and try to odrer the fool freshly cooked and ask the waiter for that. Also ask the waiter to tell you what is in your order.

The best thing i heard in the event was from Chef Pall “learn to dine not to eat in a restaurant” meaning taken a longer time in eating so that you digest the food properly.

Diet care advice you to Zumba!

Thursday, May 31st, 2012

I attended my second event with diet care, First time was Haka! And now it’s Zumba.

I really love the events that diet care are having, they are filled with information and healthy food and ways to eat then they always end it in a fun way :) there was a Zumba instructor who demonstrated Zumba for us, this sport helps the body losses fat at the abdominal area

 

During that event dietitians Ahmed Al-Failakawi and Sarah Dimashkieh where presenting, they talked about the bad habits of eating and how people can fix that, let me list some of the form the top of my head:

The human metabolism is at its highest between 12 – 2 pm and the further you go after 2pm the lowest the metabolism goes.

It’s recommended that you don’t have your dinner less than 2 hours before you go to sleep.

Eating one or just two meals a day will make your body store fat it’s better to divide you meals to 5 with small portions and a verity of content.

Not doing any excurse will help on decrease you metabolism and store fat

Being under stress will make your body store fat so try to control your feelings (yah tell that to a female Kaak!)

After the lecture there was a competition then healthy diet care dinner, during dinner we had a fun feisty chat with the dietitians’ hehe. I really want those cats to debate with the diet ninja, somebody will be sliced and diced ;) go ninja go!

Mishref Oasis Walk

Thursday, March 8th, 2012

 

Mishref new walkway project “Oasis Walk” is ready. I think it’s the best walk in any residential area in the country, the place has many outdoors activity for the whole family starting from walking path to relaxation swing chairs (but you gotta bring some cushions) it also has artificial grass  football “soccer” fields i’m assuming they are for rent in addition to basketball, volleyball courts, 2 new kinds playgrounds .. What i like about this project, they thought of some of  new activities kids like these days like riding scooters and roller skating so they reserve special asphalted area for them.

The project was sponsored by Wataniya Telecom for facilities, entertainments, plantings and Ministry of Electricity & Water(MEW) for lightings and water network
