second anniversary special edition

second anniversary special for recognizing and celebrating tongtongvision reaching yet another milestone. snippets of my 2015 canadian nationals in montreal which was a little different than last year’s toronto. still a trip filled with everything you can imagine from good times, crazy times, stressful times, exhausting times, but still creating lots of memories and meeting new people along the way. hope to go more places and with more of the gang to create more of these memories in the future, don’t let it stop, cheers to making it through another year of seesaw epicness, keeping it strong and hope it grows and only gets even better from here onwards

day 731 – just gyming

image

heading to the gym crippled but leaving happy because my ankle exceeded all my expectations. some heavy taping on my ankle makes it that much more functional, i can fall asleep easy feeling like it accomplished something today. even though i know it needs rest in order to heal properly, i also had the urge to test it out to get a better idea of what it will allow me to do this weekend. i hate waiting and i cannot be patient with these things

day 730 – my bars

image

it’s exciting when my orders and packages keep coming in and this time it’s my much anticipated combat bars. with these stocked up in my drawer, i am ready for just about anything or so i would like to think. i could use a boost in training lately as there has been a lack of it. hope this restores my motivations and puts me back on track with the things i really need to do

day 729 – physio remedy

image

decided a little blenz remedy was necessary after finishing my morning physio. because of my ankle, didn’t have to do any prescribed exercises but still had to do muscle stim which is always a struggle. physio asked me to get some rays done for my foot and even wrote an interim report to my family doctor in case i skip out on the scans; he knows me far too well. getting realigned and released was important but also gave me some reassurance and peace of mind that i am going to be okay moving forward

day 728 – summer’s day

image

looking like a typical july summer’s day as i sit under the sun gazing out. this is the best time for tourists to come visit the west coast. glad to see the warm and sunny weather returning to vancity but i am not physically able to enjoy the outdoor activities. i am hoping and expecting to return to my regular activities soon and is eagerly awaiting the clearance to resume all that planned

day 727 – email outburst

image

wrote one of my most satisfying email ever today, in response to a parent’s complaint. all my thoughts flowed out in smooth sentences and said exactly what my thoughts were from the bottom of my heart. not only was i not rattled after receiving this, but i am glad she made this complaint. this only gave me the opportunity to voice my opinion or i would never realize how i truly felt about the principles of my teaching, and i stand by it

day 726 – feeling hungry

image

sashimi and japanese food are always good go to food and i don’t think i can ever get tired of eating them. today i have the luxury of getting my sushi cravings fixed but i know i cannot afford to spoil myself too often for obvious reasons. of course i ordered my favourite salmon and tuna sashimi, and then my current new favourite, the maple roll. at least i stay away from the fried stuff
