day 2192 – master class

made a request to attend master class today because i didn’t really train yesterday. i had never been to a master class and wasn’t sure if i was allowed to. thankfully many students are out of town so it was almost like private lesson. i worked on a lot of progression drills towards flash kick. i made progress, but i just can’t seem to break the tucking habit. i need to work harder on this trick because it just doesn’t feel natural to stay open. also had some self practice time to work on some cart twist and i think i’m catching on the timing

day 2146 – rusty snatches

second apex workout since returning and i’m still trying really hard to get back to proper snatching. i’ll be the first to admit i’m pretty disappointed in the missed snatches that shouldn’t be missed. when the lifts appear to start out wrong, i give up on it far too early and clearly don’t try hard enough to save them. i was told off for doing so and smartened up after that. at least i made up for the lackluster lifts with some better back squats

day 1104 – catching on

monday workout consisted of a lot of barbell and practicing my technique. continuing to put work in; snatching with better coordination and form today, but must remain patient with these lifts and make sure i break all the bad habits. i am a big believer in staying reserved because good technique goes a long way. finished off the night with a softball game. i can’t tell if things hurt, are tired or sore, but it’s not a bad way to start off the week

day 875 – nocturnal

doing my best work at 2am is not unlike me at all. at this hour, i am usually the most productive and that’s also when my creative juices flow more vividly. it’s a comparison between getting more stuff done in half an hour in the night time as opposed to five hours in the daytime. having a messed up body clock and being innately nocturnal doesn’t bother me but i know my liver doesn’t appreciate it, especially after being called out recently. there’s just less distractions to break the concentrations

day 796 – slow moving

feels like a perfect sunday wasted. the sun is shining for once and all i did was teach in the morning and attend a marcom meeting in the afternoon. opted to skip out on gym as plannedĀ and not actively enjoying the rare sunshine we will hardly get in next few months. i hope the lethargic feeling goes away soon cause i can’t afford to be an antisocial couch potato

resolution series: [twentyfour] bad habits

it’s one of those unexplained phenomena why most girls always take pictures of their food before devouring them. i guess for me i like to document things and have variety of pictures available for blogging. i don’t know how to stop having food cravings at the most random times. one thing on my to do list is to limit the amount of eating out and consumption of unnecessary crap because it is hard to control my digestive system. and speaking of digestive system, there’s been some ongoing issues with mine that i have yet to find reason or solution to, all i know is it is very sensitive and gets upset for no good reason. also wish that i could get rid of that peculiar food craving and stop eating junk at the most inopportune times. i have this terrible habit like the sudden urge to have chocolate, ice cream, cookies, chips and all sorts of unhealthy snacks you can possibly think of. fortunately i am not a big fan of desserts, especially the white desserts and pastries like cupcakes, brownies, mousse cakes etc, but i do like my fair share of asian snacks. with all that said, my top priority is cleaning up my eating, control my cravings and intake to ensure that i do not mess up my already messed up digestive system. maybe once that gets under control, then i can pinpoint what is going on with my stomach
