day 792 – unhappy throat

image

i know there’s a recommended limit within a time span that says you shouldn’t have more than four in an hour, but i was a little desperate to make my throat less grungy. consuming this many just in the morning alone and not having much improvement probably means that it’s not working very well. need to find an alternative source that will do my throat justice, but in before then, i will be coughing all the time before something helpful comes along and cures me

day 791 – bottoms up

image

fueling on my bcaa tonight like it’s the last thing i do today. i know very well that i had worked hard today and most definitely be sore tomorrow. just hope to minimize the degree of soreness and decrease the chances of being sore for too long cause i got a full week ahead of me. getting back to it after a prolonged period of time and definitely happy with today’s progress as things are coming along

day 790 – xi upgraded

image

my ride looks a little different today while my car is being serviced. minor upgrades from the usual with the newer model, bigger engine, navigation and digital dash. wouldn’t mind if they take longer to service my car cause one day of extra luxury just isn’t enough. it was a smooth ride with cool features as expected, but i really dislike the fuel saving function of turning off engine at every stop

day 789 – a little chatime

image

stopping for some chatime after mid autumn demo just because we are thirsty. feeling a little reminiscent of the times back at toronto nationals 2013 when we discovered chatime for the first time. there’s no shortage of good bubble tea in vancouver, but chatime does stand out from the rest and the lineup backs it up. even though this really doesn’t fit in my macro nor does my cold-like symptom appreciate it, i did it for my cravings. happy mooncake day everyone

day 788 – rooftop

image

grand villa casino doesn’t know too shabby when viewed from the rooftop parking lot. i have never been inside the casino before even though i stopped by the parkade handful of times. the parkade is quite large and judging by the amount of cars parked, there must be a lot of gamblers inside. not a big fan of casinos because there’s just no winning against dealers or slot machines and i don’t have the extra moola to donate to casinos

day 787 – food for one

image

sashimi is my type of food for the sick. not feeling well enough to do anything this evening, with sore throat feeling tired and weak. useless me couldn’t go gym, couldn’t go tennis, couldn’t go taekwondo, couldn’t go out for dinner. so here’s takeout my mom ordered, just the way i like it. hope i am not on the verge of getting sick cause i have a jam packed week next week. calling it an early night and hope magic happens overnight. peace out at 9:30pm

day 786 – medicine

image

i don’t know what happened overnight but my throat has been uber dry all day. taking some medication before going to bed, but before that, i wanted to eat some homemade ice cream. i could try to make an argument that the ice cream is actually the cure to all throat problems, but i have no scientific evidence to back that up so i decided i wouldn’t even try to defend myself

day 785 – dodging difficulties

image

note to self to never have my physio appointment scheduled the day before dodgeball nights. not only were my legs sore, my butt and core were also just as sore which took away all my dodging abilities. maybe too much compensating for my soreness led to pulling my back which nullified all the work done by physio yesterday and put me back at square one. despite all my body problems, i still had a great time seeing all the familiar faces again and meeting new ones of course. it definitely felt weird not being in league ops for the first time in seasons, i think i kind of miss it already

day 784 – regular correction

image

going for regular maintenance to fix whatever needs to be fixed. there’s definitely progress and improvement in upholding itself for a longer stretch. recent experiments to stretch out the length between appointments and it’s mostly provided positive feedback, but there’s still shortcomings to maintain it completely. felt so weak today for some odd reason, struggled the whole way through and didn’t make it to the finish line for some. today the weights i normally do just wasn’t going to happen. must work harder, can’t let it slide anymore

day 783 – rdl debut

image

dodgeball season is officially in as tonight marks my rdl debut both as a player and an exec. playing on a new team with a new organization in a new gym location, but not all that new because it’s the same old game of dodgeball which i have been so accustomed to. no these are not dodgeballs, they are mini dodgeballs also known as stressballs. although there’s no difference between it because i throw balls at people to relieve my stress anyways
