day 2344 – work and play time

second day of the year and already back at the office seems kind of cruel. it was extremely difficult to wake up given my sleeping schedule was thrown off during the holidays. the tiny human was also back at the office and hung out at my desk because school doesn’t resume until next monday. when she was watching her spongebob show, she cooperates and stays busy. if she didn’t occupy herself, she wouldn’t be allow to stay at my desk. i’ll miss her after this week, but will still see her during my saturday taekwondo

day 2265 – bad millie

the most difficult thing after a three day weekend is waking up for work the tuesday back. 6am rolled around way too soon and the sky was still pitch black. just trying to eat my lunch and millie got way too close to my liking. she knows i dislike her, yet she tries to pounce on my leg. i feel like the more i she knows i dislike her, the more she tries to get close to me and get my attention. maybe i’m the only one i the office that has yet to hold, feed or pet her

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

img_20200130_2042468524379275369853717.jpgfirst 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 

img_20200130_2337201582600312600971217.jpgmy 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
