also, i weighed myself at the gym today. first time on a scale since i don't remember when. seems i've lost ~4 kg since moving to pakistan: came in just over 74kg/163 pounds. i guess i knew i'd lost a little but that's quite a lot. wonder when it happened, i.e. right away (people who haven't seen me in a while have been telling me i look like i've lost weight for the last two years or more) or after i started running.

in any event, do not want to be any lighter than this.
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.
