The lack of workouts is showing badly on my body. I have noticed that i have started building in my tummy area! Well some people call it assets, where as i would like to address them as liabilities. Last couple of months there’s been almost zero workouts. I don’t want to use the term physical activity, as most people have only certain things associated with that term.
I am currently trying to get back to shape . Walking and some workouts on the Elliptical Strider is already planned. Now the problem is how do you motivate yourself. This time, it’s beyond that, I have to find ways to keep going and loose the extra kilos i have put on. The BMI looks good and everything looks good except the tummy!
Guys any suggestions, specifically to flatten one’s tummy! If you have any magic suggestions, keep them coming……my tummy needs it desperately before people categorize me under “Men with potbelly”. So all you lazy butts be active and save yourselves.
K. R. Sridhar (born c. 1960) is the founder and CEO of Bloom Energy.The energy was clean, inexpensive, and also the expensive($100 million) to start.Sridhar earned a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from the National Institute of Technology at Tiruchirappalli, India in 1982. He moved to the United States in the 1980s and got a M.S. in nuclear engineering and a PhD in mechanical engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
Sridhar was the director of the Space Technologies Laboratory at the University of Arizona, which was asked by NASA to come up with ways to make life sustainable on Mars. The team then made a device to use solar power and Mars water to power a reactor cell that made oxygen to breathe and hydrogen to power vehicles. When NASA canceled the project, Sridhar started working on reversing the process, using oxygen and hydrogen to create power.
On 24 February 2010, Bloom Energy launched a new energy-efficient and environmentally friendly fuel cell.
We had gone to Salmiya Garden for a morning walk after the National/Liberation day(s) break. We were shocked to see the state of the garden. It was such a mess that we felt that we had come to another place and not Kuwait.The appalling lack of hygiene was evident all over. It’s fun to have a get together in the open air, and the nearest park/garden is your best bet, but it would have been better if everyone took out some time to put the thrash in the place where it was supposed to be put.
Another sad display of civic discipline.
It’s been years since we left school, and almost all of us are out of India, spread out in different worlds. Working in different domains, some got married, some remain bachelors, some have kids and some are yet to get there, even though we are not equal in all ways, there is one thing which makes us all equal, it’s nothing but the love for our school. One of the guys posted some pictures of our school and our group photos from those days in Facebook and all of a sudden there is a huge response to the pictures. Most of us coincidently logged in at the same time and we had a long discussion about the football fights, the cultural blunders, the teachers and what not. All of us felt like meeting up someday. So a reunion is also planned…don’t know how far it’s going to materialize.
The song from Three Idiots literally fits our mood right now “Give me some sunshine, give me some rain, give me another chance to grow up once again…..”
