day 1754 – movie marathon

i did absolutely nothing today except eat dumplings to go along with my movie marathon. i need days like this when i could sleep in with no alarm clock to wake me up at 6:05, no rush from work to games nor commitments. i even chose not to hit the gym because my body told me it needs the rest it deserves. this year the brand new phenomenon i’ve learnt is occasionally listening to my body instead of my always go go go response. it took me quite a while to grasp this concept

day 1594 – new bar

i forgot to set my alarm but my body clock works well enough to wake me up at half past six so i was minimally late for work. there are days i just need to keep plug in the headphones and keep going and going; hopping from work on top of work. start off the week strong with lifting and be the first to use this newly unboxed olympic bar. getting back into my routines has sure left me sore for days and i can’t wait do it all over again to be sore for days again

day 1320 – can’t catch a break

what are the odds of wounding both elbows in a day?? i hurt myself often and i’ve gotten very good at doing so. didn’t think the initial hit could be so bad until a saw a trail down my arm. my parents freaked out over it and gave me their best version of tape job. felt like my body clock was utterly out of sync today and couldn’t explain why . don’t want to think tomorrow is monday again and not ready to take in another week of work and busyness

day 1305 – wash and dry

despite sleeping at 2 in the morning, i naturally woke up early as usual. morning was a little laid back as i had no urgency to wake up immediately so i slept in a little before giving my filthy shadow a little quick wash. it took a little longer than i thought so didn’t have much time for a lunch before it was time for taekwondo. i could have joined my rdl social, but after a seven hour taekwondo shift, i was too tired and turned for home. i could use the personal space just to think and straighten some things out

day 1252 – crunch time

new mug for crunch time to start a highly anticipated year. it’s the time to get back with my plans and grind even harder than before. back to work and upping my game so i can work harder, train smarter, eat better, stay healthier and get adequate sleep. it was a rough night of sleep last night; it’ll take some time to adjust my body clock to 6am mornings again. the night was eased with a good dinner out for papa ng’s birthday dinner

day 1123 – going natural

second day of adventures at harrison was a laid back one. i don’t think my body understands the concept of sleeping in, i naturally woke up at 8am without the help of an alarm. we hit up the driving range and explored bridal falls before taking full advantage of the resort facilities two days in a row, dipping in the hot springs and doing some laps in the pool. been a relaxing trip so far, hopefully it’ll be what i need to recharge me when I return

day 1034 – jetlagging

image

thought i would be tired post traveling, but sleep was hard to come by last night. i had a mid afternoon crash and really needed a coffee run to get me through the rest of the day. jetlags are so unpredictable; my body can’t make up its mind as to which time zone it wants to operate within. loading up on caffeine everyday until my body can detect pacific standard time
