day 1962 – handstands

putting in some handstand work at the end of the session since there’s limitations as to what i can and should do with my hyper extended knee. going upside down isn’t a natural thing, but it’s slowly getting more comfortable. there’s a couple instances where i found the balance point for a split second. it’s good to do a video check here and there. at least i see that my body is not arched. i really should spend more time practicing to make them better, especially on days where i’m damaged

day 1910 – crepe cake

girls night out at the gym before crashing a home for movie. we caught up a little while watching deadpool 2. we filled ourselves with homemade poke bowl ingredients before the main event which is all about the dessert delicacies. the earl grey and matcha flavoured crepe cakes plus coloured pearl bubble tea. it was good, but i would have to keep these decadence to a minimal for the meantime. it’s also quite a pricey enjoyment

day 1401 – feeding off 

after a stressful mental battle with stacy garcia deadline for eight hours, my mind was drained. a quick visit to chiro with steady recovery for my back and ribs, but bad news for my hip. it was humbling when a power lifter i frequently see and viewed from afar came to introduce herself. i look on as she’s feeding off his encouragements as she goes. what i didn’t know was as i’m impressed with the amount of weight she pushed, she is equally impressed with my coordination and balance as i did my olympic lifts and pistols

day 1245 – disc pistol

i rolled my eyes when i was first introduced to pistols three years ago because i didn’t think i could. i was in for a big surprise today  when i found out i mastered the weighted disc pistol. i’m very happy this was unlocked at my morning appointment today. i have no idea how many times i watched and rewatched this clip. of course, this all happened prior to being treated by the physio when he forcefully adjusted my knees and rearranged my back and ribs that’s still preventing me from cleans

day 1217 – seven to ten

image

crazy long day working and schooling for fourteen straight hours and hanging on with five hours of sleep. got home from class half past ten and felt too tired to even eat. it doesn’t help that i’m super stressed out about my term project due in a week on top of the final exam. i am still establishing a protocol to sleep earlier, all for my long term health benefits with the changes my schedule demands

day 1216 – onboarding

image

not the typical onboarding day when i only have a company lunch with the bosses and don’t even get to sit down with my manager until the last hour of the day. with her going away on vacation, i’ll have to prove i can tread and swim in the deep end. it will be a big learning curve cause she’s already put a lot on my plate. i’m expected to learn on the fly, but it’s just another test for me to crush. first day so far so good; everyone tries to keep it a fun environment

day 1045 – friday night social

image

friday is all about running around doing all sorts of errands, attending socials, making meetings and being social. despite only making an appearance to the early stages of the pineapple social, i made my presence count. it’s all a balance of work and play. there’s so much to do and never enough time; it always ends up to be a late night every night. i need to fix and regulate my sleeping schedule before it gets worse
