day 1129 – salt and pepper

image

i was pretty bored and lazy today even though i had a ton of things waiting for me to do. the family commented on how rare it was to have me eat out with the rest of them. it’s been a long time since i hardly recall when and where was the last. it was such a long dinner, my everything was so stiff by the time we took the bill. got home and did some painful rolling so i can still move for team practice tomorrow. i’ll also get to my long to do list tomorrow

day 1084 – stack on stack

image

executing the literal meaning of stack on stack with four different bottles of four different flavours. after overcoming the weird after taste and the colour residue on my tongue, i have really come to like what it provides. getting them bcaa restocked so i can power through my workouts. i am all stocked up in terms of supplements and prepared to make more gains

day 892 – new nemesis

image

i knew the day would come when i would outgrow my pipe and needed to find a harder alternative. for as much as i use my rollers, my body has developed enough immunity to the pipe it no longer serves me justice. i have passed the stages of foam, firm foam, even firmer foam, ridged foam, plastic and pipe in sequential order; let’s get straight to the point and go for metal. found a new effective tool to roll out my frequently overused legs and get it to a functional state

day 836 – no better feeling

image

continuing my obligatory blenz matcha remedy after physio appointments because each visit usually entails a long list of exercises and much pain inflicted. today’s appointment went extremely well, probably one of the best i have had in years. i cannot express how ecstatic i felt when physio told me my knee is recovering well, no misalignments and everything is holding up nicely with the exception of some minor spasms and tightness. i had a good feeling about this because i have been feeling great prior to the appointment and this just confirms it. it’s funny how many take what i have been longing for as a given, but for me, being pain free is a rarity and means the world to me

day 758 – physio checkup

image

having my regular morning physio check up and it was a positive one, held up nicely since last visit and that’s huge for me. it’s a sign of progress and a big step in the right direction considering i have been doing a fair amount of my activities during this time span. my reward for having such positive feedback is some trolling courtesy of my physio and kinesiologist who demanded some unexpected numbers and then threw a curveball at me. i had a lot of hesitation but they gave me the sense there was no way out of it knowing i must do it or i am not going home

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 721 – hibernating day

image

my mind is constantly telling me all commitments should be pushed to the side, not going out tonight anywhere because i feel the need to hibernate. i want to stay at home and take the time to catch up on so much i haven’t gotten around to completing. hope hibernating this week will cure all the troubles and tasks on my plate, set me back to normal and boost my productivity
