Crazy

:: Belly Fat ::

 
:: Belly Fat ::



I know that I am putting on weight 
When I stand on the weighing scale and see
An unprecedented increase in the kilos. 
Previously, I have been gymming without gaining 
Much bulk - I am probably more of the hardgainer type - 
But as age would have it, the metabolism slows down a bit
And recently, after I learned a few new really tough moves 
From E, and from this ABC fella who posts his training videos on
Youtube. There was this video where Tuan Tran would do push-ups
From the ground to the gym bench, and then back to the floor again.
Over and over again. Fierce. I endured the tough gym routines
And I did the push ups. And I think I made some progress.
But an increase in overall bulk also meant that I was starting
To gain fat around the waist. I initially didn't think too much of it. 
I thought I was just being paranoid, and that the intensive gym
Routine will maintain the shape. But after a few birthday buffets,
Parties, and weekend snacks, the calories pile up. 
While getting a little fat is not a big issue, I am concerned
That my casual disregard about a little bit of fat, over time
Will turn it into a huge paunch - then it will be too late. 
Time to start running again. Tsk.
