day 1815 – designer faces

goofing around at the end of friday and taking a final picture with one that’s leaving us. so glad the work week is over because i had to swallow so much that i didn’t want to deal with. i left the office and headed straight for flipping. it turned out to be a very good class. i was urged to try an unspotted back tuck onto the blue mat – the first one on my own in years. somehow things felt right today; i made much more progress compared to all of last week and happily left the gym feeling accomplished. i’m a lot more comfortable with a few of the moves and a lot closer to landing it on the floor

day 1486 – five star 

just got confirmation that my fifth star has been added to the team hard hat. the amount of stars beside my name is a pretty good display of what i have accomplished thus far. i’m proud of the improvement and success i had in my first full year, but also not settling for anything less than what i can be. i’m predicted to continue to grow as a hockey player, but where that growth and progress takes place is not yet determined

day 905 – my setup

image

after the first round, i felt like i was going to die and making it out of the gym alive was questionable. i thought to myself that stopping after round one would be a huge letdown and wouldn’t be a good representation of what i am truly capable of. i kept chugging on one exercise to the next, hoping to at least finish with a respectable amount before i call it quits. i am truly amazed at what i accomplished today. not only did i finish all rounds of all exercises, but i am able to walk out of this gym feeling good about what i willed myself to do. i would say my first go of my modified workout went well. i’m totally okay with having sore legs and not being able to walk tomorrow

day 834 – i like climbing

image

wandering around false creek on this off day doing what i like to do, climbing things and breaking rules. yes, there’s a sign that says please do not climb, but sometimes it’s worth pushing boundaries. spending remembrance day going about some adventures, then also being proactive and completing a circuit before the day’s end. everything i accomplished felt like a very fulfilling day to me and i really do wish i could have more days where i feel this way

day 832 – power grid

image

playing some power grid after accomplishing a tough workout is the way to go. it’s a great bonding activity where we chilled a little, chatted a little and played a little. i haven’t played board games in ages so i haven’t heard of any of the games they had to offer but i am willing to learn all. my first crack at playing this game so just learning the games and strategies as we go. it’s funny my arms are so tired that i could barely control my hands to hold my chips and maneuver my pieces

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 665 – learns to cook

image

a proud moment cooking lunch and dinner for myself, all by myself. here’s some healthy looking salmon fillet so i don’t starve myself while my parents left me for travelling. i am no iron chef by all means, but watching all those cooking shows are paying off now. i would like to take all the credit even though all i had to do was put it in the oven and it would cook itself
