day 1808 – meeting onslaught 

closing off the work week with a meeting filled friday. the onslaught of meetings is just starting now that design tech is almost a department of its own. i now have to sit in all the sop meetings and pod meetings. ending the friday with some flipping and a sashimi filled dinner with mom. i landed several flips on blue with phantom spots; i guess that’s progress but kind of slower than i’d like. maybe i need to work harder and force myself to do more repetitions each time

day 1807 – camper

i was on the fence of doing bootcamp today but got peer pressured into it since multiple coworkers tried to call me out for skipping. i didn’t want it to interfere with the new workout schedule i had planned to start. luckily i didn’t get lazy after the bootcamp; i stuck with my original plan and went to the gym after. it worked out because i spent that time at the gym while waiting for knight bridge closure to ease off. though i didn’t completely escape from the backed up traffic of a flipped truck, i got my pulling exercises in

day 1806 – westcoast poke

it’s been months of hearing everyone rave about these poke bowls and now i jump on the freight train. went out to ironwood during lunch time to give westcoast a try. i built a bowl with a mixture of atlantic salmon and albacore tuna with spicy yuzu siracha and wasabi aioli. the siracha sauce had an interesting taste, the good kind of interesting. every time i drive by the westcoast poke, the little shop is packed with lineup out the door. these bowls are really good and refreshing, but they charge way more than how much it cost to make these. i’d get these more often if it was only less expensive 

day 1805 – home alert

ok a much delayed sick day and stayed day home to do nothing. even after sleeping in until ten in the morning, i still felt really crappy. not only has my head been hurting constantly for weeks, i could feel my blood pressure is at a low and couldn’t get my head or body to function. knowing do, i had to deliberately feed myself some salt. although i didn’t go into work, i was still checking my work email hourly. not being able to make it out to hockey game isn’t so bad, but it’s alarming when i felt indifferent missing it

day 1804 – tired but tried 

i’m willing to accept that my legs will take several days to recoup, but not willing to stop everything i have on my schedule. still trying to kick and land some flips while in class. it wasn’t spectacular by any means, but i still landed a few spotted. the repetition and getting the numbers in has slowly gotten me more comfortable. it’s crazy to think it’s the start of the second week of july. how time flies by so quickly and where has the months gone?

day 1803 – battle of chicks


the game of the year is a sunday matinee game. this season i’m on the jabba lineup instead of the chicks, though i will always see myself born and bred chicks. it was a super fun game between the controlled rivalry. this will be my third hockey game within twenty four hours and i may not have played if it wasn’t for the game of the year. my quads were absolutely fatigued when i woke up this morning after two game night. all i want to do is stay in my compression pants and not move

day 1802 – drink the pink


its an activities overload kind of day and there wasn’t much of a meal at all. lunch was banana pancakes, pregame was banana pancakes, between games was snack wrap and post game was e-noodle and ice cream. my legs gave were long dead my jdp game was over but still must play my heart out for civil war. i ended up scoring the prettiest goal of my life – stole the puck off a forecheck and deked out the goalie to roof it. too bad there was no go pro present to record the epic goal. there’s still so much i need to clean up in my game, but i’m happy i played my heart out today and make a statement. it’s extra sweet for all the criticism i took last week
