day 365 – getting work done

image

making good use of my time and being productive sure makes time go by much quicker. been so fed up of this incompetent computer that can’t support and lags when using any large programs. something needs to be done about this because it totally affects my productivity and efficiency

first anniversary special edition

prepared a little something special as part of tongtongvision reaching a big milestone of its first anniversary. congratulations on making through the first year, it wasn’t easy but it’s definitely worth it. clips throughout my 2014 nationals adventure to toronto and new york. a trip filled with everything you can imagine from good times, crazy times, stressful times, exhausting times, all combined but nonetheless endless team bonding memories. hope to go more places with this gang and create more of these memories in the future, don’t let it stop. this is just the beginning that could possibly lead to something much bigger and better

day 363 – drawing things

image

less than an hour before midnight and my deadline is coming up tomorrow but i have yet to start on my graphics and had zero inspirations to get it started. naturally i started getting side tracked and started sketching random things that came to mind which was my recent obsession with barbells

day 362 – picking up where i left off

image

i have not set foot near the squat rack ever since my knee exploded. for the first time in nine weeks, i had the courage to step up to it again, but this time not having an expectations. to my astonishment, i was able to lift the same weight i had just prior to the injury. even though it’s not much and there’s so much to improve upon, it meant the world to me. it made my day and i can say i am truly satisfied. now i will work even harder to build up that weight

day 361 – just rolling

image

my right knee has been clicking and uncomfortably pulling which means it’s time to roll out and release all the built up knots and kinks out of my legs. as painful as it will be, it’s necessary to getting all that tightness out and range of motion back. i expected to be badly bruised up after all that rolling but that’s nothing new, not like my leg isn’t already bruised up

day 360 – because food is essential

image

probably shouldn’t be stuffing my face again, but i am stuffing my face with some taiwanese food and bubble tea. eating is the way to lazy out cause i felt too lazy to drag my butt to catch the fireworks tonight. need to exercise to balance out that intake and output, but it isn’t happening tonight

day 359 – flashback

image

looking at this photo of me back in the day makes me laugh. this was my first ever competition years ago and i have never looked back since and have gone on to many more. who knew this competition kickstarted my interest in competition and to this day still continue to compete whenever possible. seven years and counting, i have risen to and accepted many challenges along the way. been plagued with numerous undesirable injuries ranging in severity, but nothing stops me from doing what i care about. i have learned and gained so much, transformed from a girl who didn’t have the confidence to speak up in front of people to now having the confidence to step in the ring alone and perform in front of a large crowd. this is not to say its in my comfort zone because i do get nervous every time, but at least i am willing to take that step forward and do what needs to be done

day 358 – h2o

image

thought it was worth noting that i successfully drank four cups of water in a day. even though that’s one cup short of my goal, it’s my new personal best. i make a big deal out of it but to many that’s still considered little consumption. my bladder was bursting which explains why i needed to pee four times in the morning alone

day 357 – vancity rain

image

raining hard on my windshield even the windshield wipers can’t catch up. the weather in past few days hasn’t been good to us as it suddenly got so cold and dark. it’s only been a couple days but i already miss the sunshine and heat. doesn’t feel like summer but good weather should resume before the weekend
