Month: February 2016

  • About a month ago I tried to swing 32 kg kettle-bell for straight 50 times. And failed at 21. This evening I swung two rounds for straight 30 with a break after the first round. I literally crashed onto the floor at the end of the second round. It felt wonderful. It is hard, but […]

  • Sunrise calendar app

    Last week I discovered Sunrise calendar app. I loved it at first sight. Sunrise joins Wunderlist in my GTD tool set.

    Sooner or later, results eventually follow all the efforts. So more than results, I’m worried about feeling smug and getting distracted by the results.

  • Highlights of the day

    Nine years ago on this day my sweetheart and I exchanged rings, six months after exchanging our hearts. I dead-lifted 60 kg for the first time on a 20 kg bar holding a 20 kg plate on its each side. At 15%, my body fat percentage falls in the fit range. I only need to shed 2% to fall in […]
