My last few weeks have been disastrous. October release deployment had taken a toll on my body and I could see drastic changes in my body structure. I repeat that this drastic change has been because of my affinity towards Mumbai and Pune food. Yeah! I’m back home.Yikes! this is not good for me. I’m afraid I might look like a teddy bear someday. So I’m shocked infact was shocked and still shocked when I utter my weight to someone. Jeez! I used to be so thin years ago.People,I’m 87 kg. For the past few weeks I’ve been gorging on all things which could Fly,Swim,Walk and Crawl. I’m not Satan for that matter. I’m really shocked to know that my weight is 174 lbs. My waistline has increased to 38 from 34.All this happened in just 2 months. So I bet I must have put over 10 kg’s since last 5 weeks. I am not surprised that if I go by this rate then some day I might look like this bear.
A round of Applause for my mother for cooking delicious food items that attract my taste bud.Offcourse its her magic that casts a spell upon us. So the main culprit who is behind deforming my body structure is none other than my beloved mother.Delhi is an awesome city with some extreme harsh weather conditions. Winters are too cold and Summers are ruthless. Naturally it would be difficult for any person to get adapted to those harsh weather conditions. I did live there for over 2 years but trust me my fitness was not hampered. I was fit like anything. I never had 6 packs or 8 packs but this tummy irks me. So whom do I blame for this. I was thinking over this while I was taking bath. I was immersed in some weird thoughts and finally realized that I should take this workout plan seriously. I am afraid and scared that one day I could become a balloon.So to avert this threat I need to do something. As some say Prevention is better than Cure. So I am ready. So talking about Delhi and Pune food. Believe me that my stay in Delhi didn’t amuse me much because of my unhealthy food habits. I lately starting eating lots of junk food.As a result of this I started gaining lots of kilos. Also my happiness grew no bounds when I came to know that I was finally going home. Alas! it was indeed sad leaving Delhi. Now that my Belly has grown bigger I would sincerely like to thank all those Pigeon,Chicken,Lamb,Fish,Crab and Rabbits without whom my belly would be looking more flatter.Its these creatures who actually attracted me and transformed me into a Bhakasura (Epic Guy from Mahabharata who ate like anything). I can also be called as Kumbhakarna for my sleeping habits. I should talk about my sleep cycle too. My sleeping habits attributes to my big belly.Initially when I was in Delhi my sleep cycle would be around 6 hours. An average human being should have a sound sleep of around 8 hours. Anything below 8 hours is not acceptable. So 6 was not good.Few Scientists performed some reasearch and found out that those sleeping less than 8 hours will become fat. Strange! I didn’t become fat when I was sleeping less than 6 hours. But these days I seem to be enjoying a bonus sleep hours. I am like sleeping like Kumbhakarana and I sleep for over 10 hours. Now this is indeed very bad. A lazy person sleeps and eats and never does anything constructive. I do eat and do constructive things and I am highly productive too but I sleep a lot.One should remember that girls like men with packed abs and not bags.There can be some exceptions too .Check this picture .Don’t look at her .
There should be a balance between everything you do. My office is even less than 3 km from my home.It hardly takes 4 min by walk to reach office. I’m so lazy that I get up 15 min before my work hour,brush my teeth,wear my clothes and rush to work. I take an auto for my office. Now this is height of laziness. I can’t get up at 7 am. That might sound weird for some people but sadly thats the truth. Sometimes I come to a conclusion that I should rather wear all my clothes and hit the bed so that I can go to office without any haste. But that would be shameful to do.So I’m wondering and finding out ways to get back my flat tummy.As an IT professional I would just want to say one thing that we people never care about our health.We sit in front of the terminal for over 9 hours and our body gets adjusted to the AC temperature. As we go outside our body temperature has to change to the outside temperature.So this transistion doesn’t sounds good to me. There could be obvious health issues. Sitting at the same place working on codes will make you obese.These days I am seriously planning to work out but nothing is going right. I’m having a worse time at work and I have to concentrate on that too. There might be a time where my nephews might play with my belly. Bren already loves it.Now 87 is the number which I hate much these days.So could dieting could work?. Or may be some dedicated workout sessions with some trainer. May be I should go swimming. Sounds crazy. Like this I can say that 24 hours a day isn’t enough for me.I demand an extra 2 hours for doing all these workouts. Its natural and I guess 2 hours a day can do wonders to me and my body structure .I hurt myself while trying to do push ups. I’m taking this seriously and trust me one day I will be like this guy.( see picture below).
Software Engineering is a field where your work is demanding.Appraisals,Performance review etc have been few factors which actually defines a person in IT industry. Your colleague works good ,so you naturally need to bring up your performance else your manager would be considering good ratings for him/her. Flexibility is a term which I purposely used in such cases. HR managers usually ask you to be flexible when it comes to work. Well does being flexible means working overtime and being devoid of worldly things.By doing this we are obviously missing our loved ones.We are missing those valuable times with them that would mean a lot to them. Offcourse just an hour or 2 with them would make them smile and imbue a feeling of joy within them. My intention here is not to preach a lesson or something. I am no saint for that matter. My whole focus area right now is my belly. Everynight I sleep i look at my belly with a hope that one day I will get rid of these extra fats. But its disappointing at times because I know everything depends on me. I work almost 12 hours a day and sometimes I work even on weekends.I am already sleep deprived. Junk foods,over sleep and other factors have contributed to my obesity. This doesn’t sounds good.
Its just that I’m having terrible time at work. So lets say by next year I can get rid of this big belly (don’t say beer belly for a matter of fact I don’t drink 😛 ). So its time to walk, swim,jog, pushup,pull up and do every damn thing on earth to get them flat. I need to bring the number down to 75 from 87.This will do good to me.So never mind girls… I shall be back with a bang very soon. So for time being enjoy this morhped picture of Twilight superstar Edward Cullen and his beer belly. So still you girls love Edward Cullen?. If yes then you should meet me 😉
