on a different front; I have been chillin out, i love working out so spend high quality time at the gym with weights. And when i am in fitness mode, which incidentally i had been for a good year and half since 2005, i eat healthy and actually eat about 7-8 meals a day ha ha. I had been off weights for a long time due to the exhausting preparation for Olympics, I am happy that i have time now for some indulgence. I now weigh 84 kgs with 13% body fat (I am 6.2 feet), my target is to be 90 kgs with 10% body fat. which means an increase of approx 7 kgs of muscle mass, wow, that might look nice.
I have just come back from attending a military function at Pathankot. It was great to be back to the simple fauji life. The soldiers, with whom i had operated in anti terrorist operations in kashmir, dressed in combat uniforms, had made a little paradise of the wilderness. We sat, eat and competed together in various games to re-live the old camaraderie. Sometimes these simple pleasures of life bring us lots of happiness which lasts a much longer time. Incidentally, very close by, in Jammu city, the nation was witnessing a hostage crises where some of my military friends were combating the anti-national elements at the risk of their lives. Everybody has fear but only a few overcome it.
I am taking this time off and looking at life from another perspective. I am sure, it will give me some insight as to what i really want in life and start with re-newed energy. To all those who are pursuing a dream; if you believe in yourself and you want it more then anything else in your life, then YOU WILL LIVE YOUR DREAM.
