day 2090 – vita galore

i haven’t drank vita lemon tea for a really long time, until i downed four boxes over this weekend. still reminiscing the team trip and wished i didn’t didn’t have to go home so soon. waking up monday morning after a long weekend is usually one of the most difficult thing to do. i don’t want to go back to work and the life of my normal daily routines. i can only look forward to the next day off i have

day 1944 – jetlagging

first day back in town and already back at work. trying to keep myself busy to lie to myself i’m not jetlaged. that only worked for an hour as i’m already lagging two hours in. most of my day was a whirlwind, but my main focus to catch up on the seventy odd emails in my inbox. i still grind it through to the end of work day and went for flipping. went out for dinner after an extended session because i really missed flipping and the people there

day 1905 – backlogged

resuming daily work activities after three consecutive days locked away for training wasn’t exactly a gentle ease. not only do i have to tend to the excessive amount of emails, many project requests, prepare for conference call, but also had to look after the dishes. i uploaded one batch first thing in the morning, ran another load right away and to my dismay, there’s still people leaving dirty dishes in the sink while the dishwasher is perfectly empty. i spent pretty much all day catching up and didn’t even get around to doing any project work

day 1794 – flasherback

emerging leader meeting got me well on my way to a long weekend; a weekend i’ll actually have. i’m feeling really burnt out lately so this is a timely and much needed string of days off. while i have time to sit down, i flashed back to when i was in the best shape of my life before it all went down the drain all due to a broken thumb. it then became one of the toughest moments of my life because of all that happened and all that couldn’t happen. that’s all behind me because i learn and i grow. i think now i’m ready to train for what got me to the shape i wanted. i have my eyes set on being the fittest, healthiest and strongest i could ever be

day 1655 Рleg heavy 

my compound movements felt surprisingly good even after a few off days that went awry. a few days away and trainers there came to ask where i’ve been. squatted the same weight as last time but with more ease, and even upped the deadlift cause i felt up to it. maybe lifting across from my kinesiologist helped pump me up and made sure i follow through. i’m going for something new in my routine. it’s time i switch things up because i have different wants and need to zone in to the specifics

day 1644 – bayside dineout


i was quite reluctant to join in on the dineout vancouver festival, but mom insisted on taking visiting relatives out to a special dinner. aside from the lone boring topic that bored me to death, the dineout menu was actually quite good. i especially liked my appetizer of ahi tuna with mango and avocado. it’s apparent i can never get tired of eating salmon. the striploin steak wasn’t bad but i couldn’t finish as usual but got help as usual. the eating as gone awry over the last few weeks and it has to stop immediately. i told myself after this meal, i’ll gear down and be much more disciplined with my eating 

day 1643 – milking tea


i had such a good weekend i didn’t want it to end, or the fact i actually had a weekend. it’s back at work monday morning and drinking milk tea out of myself. i still feel slowed with a dull headache and is somewhat hungover. i’ll try to keep it tame this week for a change this. work will suck up a lot more of my energy because manager has for overtime from me as opposed to assumed overtime. the intention is to keep it as banked hours for the future, provided my assistance can come at the rate that work is increasing at
