day 1687 – clinic time

hand therapy appointments can’t be described as fun when they passively manipulate my joint to do what it can’t do at this point. this visit consisted of some waxing, ultrasound, heat and exercise. although it’s still not as functional like i need it to be, regaining some functions is noticeable progress. an increase in grip strength and pinch strength is expected but still good to see. it will come back to me soon. it’s in my nature to be pushing harder than what i should be going for

day 1685 – millwork sample 

in the icon building inspecting the quality of vietnam millwork. overcapacity at work since everyone wants to get things in before the christmas closure. somehow i will need to wrap up all these jobs before i go on break. there’s a first for everything and today, i sat in my first ever interview. i was very nervous being part of the interview panel because what i say could make or break the interviewee

day 1684 – new bar

i forgot to set my alarm but my body clock works well enough to wake me up at half past six so i was minimally late for work. there are days i just need to keep going and going; hopping from work on top of work. start off the week strong with lifting and be the first to use this brand new olympic bar. getting back into my routines has sure left me sore for days and i can’t wait do it all over again to be sore for days again

day 1683 – hootie

back to back season winning the spirit owl with gstrings. we uphold to being a highly spirited team in regular season and that’s no different at playoffs. an early exit wasn’t what we expected but we came out of our zone and my team knows it. the hardest part of being on the sideline while my team was on the brink of elimination is knowing i could step in to help but at the same time couldn’t. if doctors gave me the nod, i would have in a heartbeat, played in a splint and found any way to have it taped so all surrounding joints are immobilized. at some point i just realized people are right and i need to take it easy at the right moment. regardless, i still wanted to be there for my team

day 1682 – gramercy 

i never questioned whether my heart is in the right place cause i know it myself. the holiday card and notes written says it all. this reminds me of why i continue to push through my hectic life to be teaching year after year. i don’t want to give up these kids i’ve trained, some for several months and some seven years. i forget what it’s like to be appreciated for what i do and what i do well. i thought it didn’t bug me, but it actually does and i’m told i should never tolerate or take it from anyone

day 1681 – omega 

craved sushi and that’s exactly what i got tonight. it’s my ultimate go to eats that i can never get sick of. as usual, i skip the fillers and go straight for the sashimi, a party size sashimi to share. getting some quality food in me and loaded up on omega after a good session. a pricey bill came with it but fulfilling meal that leaves my tummy satiated and satisfied. also feeling pretty good that the push aspect is still there, and working up on the pull
