I was at Marina Crescent in the morning and saw there was a kids marathon going on so I went to check it out, I asked organizers about this event they said this is the Omniaty Kids Run and it’s a short marathon (1/2 km for ages 5-8 years & 1km for 9-12 years). I pretty much liked the idea so I decided to cover the event since they said all the registration fees (KD1) will be donated to children with terminal, and deteriorating Illnesses in collaboration with Bait Abdulla (BAACH).
I think this is the first well-organized kids marathon in Kuwait, I truly respect all those families who made sure to register their kids to participate in such a sport and health event. Charity aside, it’s important to raise our children with health awareness since and engage them in sport events since early years, it’s like an investment for their future. The kids were fun, I was enjoying an laughing at them because some of them were crying because they lost, simply adorable. I’d love to see more similar events in future and please “parents” involve your kids in such healthy activities and not just take them to fast food restaurants.
I’m glad that I managed to keep up with my workout for several months now and drop my weight from 97KG to around 86KG and maintain the result, but of course my target is not only to lose weight but to get back in shape by losing fat and gaining muscle mass to get the toned body look. However, the biggest challenge that I’m facing now is that on some days I feel little drowsy when I arrive to the gym, also feel tired when I do intensive workout for say 50-60 minutes. I usually start with a warm up then do weight resistance exercises and finish with cardio or sometimes swimming at the pool.
So I’m now considering to add supplements to my regimen, the ones that I used before are shown above but I’ve checked online (supplements in Kuwait too expensive) for bodybuilding, vitamin shoppe, and amazon websites and there are many new supplements that I know nothing about, what I’m basically looking for are the best supplements that help with raising energy level, boost natural testosterone and growth hormones, improve muscle anabolism, whey protein and multi-vitamin. I’d would be thankful if you could share your experience about supplements so we could all benefit, also if you know good shops or trusted websites that sell them for good prices.
Note: I wanted to add that ordering supplements online has also become tough in Kuwait because of customs and Ministry of Health new regulations, package has to be sent to test labs before it can be retrieved.
I read this new report from Kuwait Environment Public Authority (K-EPA) that Kuwait consumes over 6.5 Billion plastic bags per year, that’s like 179,000 bag per day! I think the Co-op’s hold the major responsibility for the abuse of these plastic bags that can harm not only the environment but also our health, I wonder if there’s an alternative, maybe a bio-degradable bags or recycled ones? at least they must be environment friendly.
I recall when ever I’m in Europe, I rarely see super markets providing bags and they even charge for them, this encourages people to re-use them instead dumping them and use new ones everytime they go for grocery.
Flu season is here, somehow I always got away without actually getting flu or it’s symptoms, thanks to vitamins and healthy diet, but this time guess I wasn’t lucky enough since one of my co-workers who happen to share the same office with me was sneezing all day and I tried everything I could to convince him to take a sick leave but yet to no avail. Now back to flu, I’m now experiencing all the symptoms except fever (thankfully), so a friend suggested that I take a flu shot that can keep the flu away throughout the year, it’s an annual vaccination given to protect against the highly variable influenza virus.
I liked the idea, not having to suffer from annoying flu is cool but I’m always hesitated when it comes to treatments, I heard Dr. Ahmad Al Khateeb clinic give it for probably KD5 or something. So anyone tried it before? More importantly, is it safe?
I saw this CNN reportage on obesity in Kuwait, currently Kuwait is considered the 2nd fattest country worldwide after U.S, the report states that about 70% of Kuwaiti Men are over weight and things are even worse with Women, and that with this increasing rate in obesity Kuwait will soon be the 1st with flying colors. Personally I’ve to keep my eye on my weight since I’m having more and more cheat days lately.
