day 1558 – me menu

called everything off and put myself and only myself on today’s menu cause i need time alone to set my priorities straight. absolutely no work related tasks today – no work for the first time in sixteen days. i was going down the wrong path of cramming work in to avoid idle time which in turn has even more negative effect on my mental health. can’t say i’m not a workaholic but then realized i was more burnt out than ever. so first time sleeping in until eight, helped my parents moved furniture, went for a workout and cleaned my room. that is not to say i don’t see the relationship struggles, but we’ll both be working on it together. i do feel better thinking i’ve reset my priorities and reorganized my life for the upcoming week

day 1097 – get grinding

image

getting my statutory holiday grind on bright and early, so early the gym is practically empty. checking in to the gym and checking my form for all techniques. keep an open mind to all critcism for everything; that’s the only way i’ll learn and the only way i’ll get better. it’s always important to stay focused and humble and see where the journey takes me. feeling good after a workout and ready to put in the work for a strong august to recreate my dreams and reestablish myself

day 734 – quarry rock

image

had bigger hikes in mind for this august long weekend, but my ankle didn’t give me a chance. probably shouldn’t have done this strenuous activity to begin with but forced it to happen and still in one piece all thanks to the tape job that held my ankle together. would have been devastated if i couldn’t at least go on a hike this long weekend, even if it meant quarry rock. it was a good hike nonetheless and the view up top was so relaxing at the same time rewarding. hoping i can do the hike i wanted to before summer’s end

day 733 – airport outlet

image

heard it was crazy crowded the first few weekends of it’s grand opening so didn’t bother joining the rush. my parents wanted to check out the mcarthur glen designer outlet this weekend and i didn’t mind tagging along as the third wheeler. it’s a nice area but there’s no special sale that would have been worthwhile for me to lineup for several weeks back. things weren’t particular cheap but i did however buy a couple items from under armour

day 369 – choco milk

image

drinking chocolate milk like a boss straight from the jug because i can. this is only possible when my parents are not in town. needed to replenish some fluids and recover after a morning tennis session on this hot bc day. talk about exercise and cardio overload this weekend, it just keeps adding on but i am liking it. just trying to enjoy my long weekend while i still can

day 367 – japanese style sparklers

image

another year has passed by and another year of celebration of lights. chilling at the beach on a long weekend, soaking in some sun, getting a tan, meeting strangers sitting next to us and even getting free shades with colour coordinated shades. the performance japan put together was amazing and the finale was definitely one of the best i ever witnessed. great day in all, with some crazy exercises at the gym and tons of cardio booking it to and from the skytrain station

day 5 – bc day drive

image

it’s nice to actually be spending some family time hanging out in whiterock on a long weekend. whiterock is such a quiet, peaceful and laid back part of the city. here people actually get to appreciate the slowness of the day and just let things happen instead of rushing around the city trying to complete the neverending errands at hand. i guess that explains why i am a city girl; my world never stops or even slow down
