Set out to swing 32 kgs for straight 50. Humbled after 21. We will get there soon, with practice. Until then, the glory is in the struggle.

Once you accept someone as your leader/guru/mentor/boss/trainer/coach, follow them unquestionably and do what they say.

Results shall follow you.

There are no finish lines

I chanced upon a great quote today.

There are no finish lines.

It made prefect sense. This is something I keep in my mind with everything I do. My relationships, friendships, habits, and principles are all for my life. There are no finish lines.

In the other news, I tried to keep quiet in Twitter and Facebook but I soon realized that lurking is not my natural state. So I tweeted:

It feels good not to pretend as someone I am not.

My new year is warming up. I started, rather continuing, work on my goals. My exercising routine resumed this week after a two-week holiday break. I started drinking protein after my workouts. I had a great lower body workout this afternoon. My trainer kept it relatively easy so all of us finished all the reps ahead of time. However, at the end he challenged me to swing 32 kg kettle-bell non-stop for fifty times. I tried, but gave up after twenty swings. So he asked me to complete two more sets of twenty swings, breaks allowed. I was able to do all of them with a good form. So that’s sixty swings with a break after every twenty. Still pretty good.

2016 has kicked off.
