I had such a busy weekend. I got contract work to get done for a co-worker at work. His wife’s uncle passed away and they are having a memorial service for him next weekend. So I am making a DVD presentation for her. So I spent the weekend making this DVD. I was going through all the pictures and placing them in order of life events and I thought to my self, if I die will people remember me and make me a DVD too? Will they have speeches prepared and a memorial service. I doubt it. I think it is just a nice gesture though. So I spent the weekend doing this, it was a lot of work, but I think it looks nice. Multimedia presentations are the only things that I can do nicely.
So other than that, I was remembering my self. How I used to look like and pictures from my late teens. Good times. Unlike now.
So one day about couple of months ago I decided to join the gym. It’s daily aerobics class. I like music and dancing and it is fun. I just wanted to loose weight quickly and look the way I was when I was 18. Crazy idea eh? The problem is I was too skinny and fit. I was obsessed with gym back then and didn’t eat much. I didn’t even drink coffee or eat sweets much. However, the depression the past 3 – 4 years killed me. I started binge eating continually and drinking so much coffee and drinking caffeinated drinks. So should I say how much weight I gained within a 6 month period about 3 years ago? I gained 40 pounds. Ridiculous I know. I was uncontrollable, and I was too depressed to do anything about it. It was sad, and my job didn’t help since I sat on my ass for 8 hours a day. So sad. So I decided that I can slowly loose the weight. I don’t want to be a vegetarian with 2 hour work out sessions daily. That’s not going to help my situation.
Yes, I did say I was vegetarian back there. I was 19 or 20. I didn’t eat meat for 6 months. Amazing isn’t it. Now I don’t eat meat much. I eat mostly chicken. I eat lamb occasionally cause I love it. I had to stop my vegetarianasim because my dad thought it was “haram”, (sinful) because only Sikhs and other non-believers do that. So I was like fine, whatever, bring on the lamb! Can’t resist lamb, 6 months was plenty of time!
Other than that, I have been pretty good. Nothing really exciting in my life. Just the daily boring routines.
