Hammer time

Just got myself an 8 pound sledgehammer and a used 4x4 tire recently, I decided to try that instead of going to the gym not only because it's much cheaper than joining a gym. It is also a much interesting method to build up strength and muscles.
I only spend about one hour beating the crap out of the tire switching to different swinging methods after completing every set. Boy can I feel the burn on my back!
Haven't had this sensation for years now!

I do still workout at home or whenever i can after I stopped going to the gym, but it's mostly simply exercises. Nothing as serious as my gym rat days. At my peak, I was pushing 30+kg bench press. Ask me to do it now, I think I'll just become pancake.

I do feel sad looking at old pictures of myself being buffed up, those muscles really shrink if you don't use them and I kept asking myself why didn't I go all the way and keep training. I most likely be able to reach my targeted body weight of 60kg if I did, but as for now my body weight had fell to below the 55kg mark. And yes, I know most people have trouble reducing their body weight yet I am doing the opposite, I don't know if it is a blessing or a curse, but my body weight is always the same, no matter how much or how little I eat. The only time I manage to increase it was by working out with really heavy weights, that only gave me a extra 5kg to my weight.

Hopefully I can gain back the missing 2kg without going to the gym.

Have s great day

I've not written or posted a new post in my blog for so long that some of my friends wonder if I've already forsaken my blog. For myself, I'm not sure of the answer either, let me explain. Sometimes in life, people get lost, either distracted or not sure of their direction, where to go and what to do. To find their way they often look back at the past, comparing now with then, who died? What changed? What made them laugh? What made them cry? I'm actually not in that situation, but the drama helps make this post a little longer.

I think I spend more time reading my older post than writing new ones, not really sure what's the reason but I find that more enjoyable to do but in a way I am trying to find out who I was. It's not like I've got in to an accident and lost my memory but my memory is starting to get bad as I grow older.

Simple things like forgetting my keys or trying to find my wallet in my messy room often fill me with frustration that always make people around me upset. I never have any intention of hurting anyone but sometimes things just happen subconsciously, but I'm really sorry for that.

I remember I used to be very patience in many things I do, well at least much more patience then I am now at least. I cannot stand people telling me what to do when I'm already doing it, like just when I was about to take out the trash, somebody just jumps in and tell me to take out the trash, I know people cannot read my mind but it's just so very annoying. With all that ranting aside, I think the whole point of writing this post is just to write a post and to clearify that this blog is not forsaken, I'm just too damn lazy to write.

Have a Great Day
