I was focusing on my health and fitness and went from a challenge to another

17 days later I also run the 10K race at Kuwait charity run finish  that in 1h25m !!

and on Feb. 27th 2013 I can proudly say I ran Kuwait !!!! I was in run Kuwait relay team and we run from the northern to southern borders of Kuwait !!!

at the same time I got involved in voluntary work with an amazing group called Blue Circle Kuwait.. and I'm a member in iGreen group....... I will be posting about them soon..

work wise ...I had a job in the ministry of health for 2 months ( don't ask me way??!!) and now I'm working in Kuwait Livestock Transport & Trading Co. as Marine Operation Superintended.

To go to sea or not to go to sea !!!???

As I decided to go back to work at sea I hade to go through the initial medical exam all over again..  I don it on the 28/8, I was surprised when I received a call from Ahmadi Hospital asking me to do the test again??!!  So when I saw the doctor she asked me:  are you diabetic???  I answer: No!!  Not that I'm  aware of!!!  My initial test shows  blood sugar of 7% thay took another sample and it shows  8% this time.. that with me being 12hr fasting!!!
Ideas start rushing into my maind,  and most of them where bad ideas but I said to my self this is what god planed for me and it must be good to me so I shall embrace it and be grateful and thankful and I started to see the bright side of it and the maine thing is that I  will not go back to sea and I will be staying with my kids.
So now I'm  doing another test for diabetes and i must give them 4 blood samples every hour , I have already give them three sampls and only one to go.....
I will let you know of the final result.....wish me luck!!!! 

Toy Store for Athletes

I always remember the excitement rush when my parents takes me to Kids 'r' us (نحن و الطفال) Toy store in Farwanya area , that was in the good days of the 80's, as we approach the huge building and see that big , yellow koala  you latterly hear me buzzing with excitement
( I still do when I see that logo :P )

After 30 years I do feel the same when I pay a visit to sport's stores, and specially my favored brand NIKE , I was so excited when I herd about the new  Nike Store in Arjan (Bida'a Area ).

So I took my camera and jumped into my car and headed toward there.
The store looks good from out side I took view pics .

When I got inside the store was divided in to three sections, tow sections in the ground flour , Men and Women , the upper level for soccer and casual  .

This is amazing running shoes so light that you feel barefoot
 The LUNAR ECLIPSE+ technology ...you should tray it

Very nice collection for Athletes

 Men section .....I really liked there new running T-Shirts

Women Section........

The only one downside that I noticed in this store that they don't have a kids section ...other than that the store is amazing , the people working there are so friendly and helpful , but Nike have a store in Discovery Mall in Kuwait city , dedicated for kids  :-)

I noticed a lot of people don't where proper clothing when working out ....my advice to all of you ... dress up for sport workout with fashion it really boost you morals and you deserve to pamper your self ..
get moving ...pay them a visit and start BUZZZZING :-)

The Day that changed my life

Good Day.....

It's been a long time since my last post ....I needed time with my self to regroup my thoughts...

I discovered a lot about my self in the last months and I was surprised by what I have discovered..
I use to be an athlete I play football in the Yarmok Sport Club , I started playing when I was 11 years old until I was 18 , and that's the time when I joined the Kuwait Oil Tanker Company and start working at sea which result in slowly drifting away from sports and the healthy life.
For the last 10 years ( yes I'm that old) I keep telling my self I'm too old for sports and I totally believed it, until that day, the last days of Ramadan 2011, I saw a tweet by
Yousef Al-Qanai - Fitness Expert- Founder of Aymstrong

Yousef Al-Qanai ,inviting people  to join him in his workout at Mamsha Mishrif( Mishrif Track) , I decided to go ..( there is an older post about it ) .
 This workout was a wake up call tome to  start taking control of my health , I couldn't jog for 50m ??!! we where a group and when we first start to run I run with all my power BUT I saw them going away and I couldn't catch up with them , I almost quit and my old hunting thought attacked me again " I'M TOO OLD FOR THIS S**T "  it was even louder than before, I start walking and I was gasping for air I felt so week I hit rock bottom .

At this moment I said to my self: This has to change, I don't like to see my self like this , I will change , I need to change , I am changing it right now!!! I'm on the right track !! , so I started to jog again and kept pushing my self until I reached the meeting point with the others, I remember Yousef when he saw me hoofing and buffing , he asked : are you OK?? my brain was rushing with answers "NO" , " I'M SO TIRED", " I CAN'T DO THIS" , " I QUIT'" , but what came out of my mouth " I'm OK' !!!  I know at that moment that I took my first step to changing my life.   And I did ...

5 months later I completed for the 1st time in 10 years, 5k run !!! and since that time I never stop running ..

All Thanks to Allah And the great people I have met in The Fitness Camp and Nike+ running Club , you have changed my LIFE

THE THAT CHANGED MY LIFE ;)  ( I'm the one taking the Pic.)

صبحكم الله بالخير و الصحه و السعادة مع إني متضايق من الي شفته..
 أنا ما لي ميول سياسية و سياستي الوحيده حب هذه الديره و آنا مو ضد التجمعات و الندوات الي اسونها التكتلات السياسية و نواب مجلس الأمه فالكويت بلد الحرية و الديمقراطية. بس الواحد ينقهر لما تقام ندوه أو تجمع كل الي فيه رافعين شعار حب الكويت و الخوف على الكويت و مصلحة الكويت , و انا ما أشكك في كلامهم, و لكن الي انشوفه بعد هذه التجمعات يتناقض مع الي يقولونه؟؟ الي يمر الصبح على ساحة الإراده و الله ينصدم من الي بشوفه لو كل واحد من الي احضروا التجمع شال الوصخ الي عنده و قطه بسلال الزباله,الي كانت فاظية, كان انظفت ساحت الإراده في أقل من خمس دقايق.
أنا لاني مع فلان و ضد فلان انا مثل ما قلت ما لي بالسياسه, انا كويتي و أحب هذه الأرض الي ربيت و راح أموت أنشاءالله عليها.
و شكر خاص لإختي
على حبها و غيرتها على هذه الأرض و هذه مو غريبة على عيال الكويت
و مشكورة على الصور و إثارة هذا الموضوع

Blast from the 80's

I Love the 80's .....yes I do... I got a lot of good memories and I'm about to talk about one of them...
One of my favorit shows was Tha A Team, I remember it was shown in thursdays at 20:30 just after the KTV2 news ....we used to have KTV1 and KTV2 only :P
everytime I hear this theme a surge of memories rush into my head.

The A-Team Intro

and of course me and my older brother always choose a character  ....and actually get excited when the character we chose do something heroic :P

I always choose B.A ( Mr.T )
