Moving on, growing up

October 27, 2017

First I’d like to start this Blog off with some love:

MashAllah she has grown so much. The wife has gotten a new, full time job so Lailah stays with me from the morning till mid afternoon. Her mom comes at 4pm and takes over while I go back to work for the dinner shift. Lailah also comes to the restaurant so we have a great, portable crib set up in the office. I always restock every night my baby bag with essentials so I can grab and go in the mornings. By the way don’t let the wife buy a designer baby bag, personally they aren’t practical and will only hurt their shoulders in the long run. This is what I use, I got it on sale for $40:

Also I’ve learned besides making sure baby food is natural, organic,non gmo and all that important healthy stuff, the one company besides Gerbers that we appreciate and the baby loves to eat from is Beech Nut:


To be honest, being a father hasn’t hit me hard, just because I take it as something I’ve always been and felt ever since I got married. I don’t really know how to explain it, when people ask how it’s like being a father, I tell them that the feeling is surreal. That it was like she was always with me, that invisible friend I had always talked to or felt was with me growing up. That one part of my soul that knew something good was going to come from me and to keep being good, helping others and stay honest,that the time would come and it has. 

There are many milestones in life, for me, I am fortunate to go through the good and the bad with my wife, a lot more recently of the bad now with my wife and child. But I wouldn’t have it any other way. It’s definitely a learning experience that helps the soul get stronger through any situation. We are in the process of moving out of my parents house,looking for a place of our own, we can only afford to rent at the moment. Doing this has prompted me to learn the hard way on never take any hand outs, no matter who it’s from, no matter how well you know that person, because there will always be a chance that they will hold it against you and take all the credit for who you are today because of what they did for you in the past. Everyone situation is obviously different, but in mine it’s definitely better this way so that I can make it on my own and teach my children while growing up on how to be independent and how to work for themselves so that they can value a gift even more. I’m not saying that I did not value the things that I was given to me but when someone gives you something and then later on they say you owe me because I give it to you then I’m just thinking I would rather have not gotten that gift instead of owing someone. It’s basically a messy situation in a bit confusing but the bottom line is it’s better that way, even if we struggle with money and living on our own, that’s where everything starts, from the bottom. At least I’ll have more time to do my extracurricular activities like getting back to reading and being less on my phone or laptop. Also have more time to make movies and focus on my side projects, where we are thinking of living is much closer to my wife’s job so she doesn’t have to leave extra early. It’s just a headache at the moment but as long as you focus And set goals, everything else falls into place. Thanks for taking the time to read, for next time I’ll keep you guys updated on where I am, what I’m doing, and if there’s any new videos for the YouTube channel.

Day 20 cutting diet

May 22, 2013

So I’m on day 20 of the cutting diet,lost about 6 lbs. I will be flying out to Istanbul,Turkey on the 28th if this month. Then from there I will go straight to Kabul,Afghanistan. It will be after 5 years,this time I will be prepared with my 64g iPhone 5 and 64g iPad mini. Sometimes I close my eyes and I’m telling everyone that I meet that Afghanistan went by so fast,45 days was a blur & now it’s Ramadan again. This Ramadan will be the best,can’t wait to start and be at peace with myself while fulfilling my duties. I will start Ramadan in Afghanistan,I stars I believe July 8th this year,we will be landing back home on the 14th. InshaAllah we will complete Ramadan together.

I also shipped to Afghanistan my supplements from Bodybuilding.com, of course I’ll be training there while eating 6 times a day,walking miles to and from the gym & all the food is natural,healthy & organic.

Day 2 cutting diet

May 2, 2013

Got a good leg workout in with a friend of mine. He hasn’t lifted before so it was good to show him the ropes. He said he definitely feels it today so that means training him worked. I just got my 15 lbs NASM book to study, it talks about training,muscles,dieting and foods. It’ll help me pass the qualification exam and have me be certified as a personal trainer. What I really want to learn is how to make a diet,what factors go into it,what’s needed to calculate it. I know everyone’s different & there’s a lot to learn but in the one month in Kabul will give me plenty of time to read,learn and prepare.

Day 61 on gaining diet

April 3, 2013

Today I’d like to talk about stress while dieting. Dieting does play a a role in our Dailey lives and can cause some type of stress triggered by an event or person. Speaking from experience, eating “small” meals through out the day will help with weight loss or weight gain, but the perception that your still hungry while cutting or “I want to try something else but can’t” thought while gaining can cause a reaction in the brain if we choose it to. During my 16 week cutting phase I limited myself to almost every finger food within my grasp. Working at a restaurant has proven at times to be extremely difficult to diet clean and yet I have been successful. If you don’t time yourself after each meal then your body will tell you when it’s hungry while you aren’t stressed or busy; but when your hungry that’s when chemicals in the body start to take a toll. It’s extremely important to eat within every 2-3 hours of your last meal to stop your body from going into a catabolic state. learn about Catabolic state here.

An example of when we should eat is with someone who’s diabetic. If the diabetic person does not eat every three hours then they become grumpy first, then angry and very tired as if they are about to crash. I base this on my grandmother and my father, my father is prediabetic so usually we are on top of him on eating all the time.
