day 2390 – donnie yen

family day statutory holiday started with a strong session at apex, coupled with a family lunch and drama time, and finished with a laid back enter the fat dragon movie starring donny yen. no misses on my clean wave and topped out at fifty nine kilos, which is only two kilos shy of my personal best. i got a taste of what seventy five kilo front rack feels like from jerk dips. though it sounds like a big jump, i handled it well and think i could go up next time i do the same workout. seventh week without snatches; i do worry i won’t remember how to snatch when my shoulder is ready to return

day 2321 – frozen 2

tuesday cheap movie day isn’t really all that cheap because the ticket still cost over twelve dollars. i went to do a quick workout session at apex before joining the girls for frozen 2. i enjoyed the movie and i found it very funny and thought the songs were really good as well. it was half past night by the time i got home and i didn’t do all that much before heading to bed. i’ve been lacking sleep quality since sunday so trying to do some catching up

day 2223 – sloth day

my flex day consisted of no alarm clock, no schedule and barely any moving. desperately needed this day off after spending many hours working blackbelt test, training for blackbelt test and taking the blackbelt test. the boards i held and the boards i kicked left so many cuts and gashes. basically spent the morning watching a netflix movie and another movie at the theatres in the afternoon. no part of me wants to go back to work tomorrow

day 2167 – spiderman far from home

it was a very good day. i had good snatches and strong paused squats before catching spiderman far from home with friends. i redeemed myself from last week’s poor showing by working up to two kilograms shy of my personal snatch record. also feels good to add five pounds to my paused squats. i walked into the cinema feeling great and perhaps watched my favourite spiderman movie of all time. i thought his newest suit is the best looking ever and wished that i could have waited before buying mine. this one is probably one that i would rewatch once it’s made available for streaming

day 2159 – biking stint

spent canada day olympic lifting, hanging out and having some fun inside and out. while some needed a power nap, i borrowed a bike and took it for a short spin to visit the office. it was a little risky since i haven’t ridden a bike in vancouver for years and years, and never on the streets sharing the road with cars. after a short stint on the bike, we went to watch men in black movie. it wasn’t the best of movies, but i still enjoyed watching hemsworth. i’m so stoked spiderman is coming out tomorrow, and can’t wait to catch it in theatres

day 2094 – avengers end game

i’m super excited to be watching the avengers end game on opening weekend. up to when it’s my turn to watch, which is only two days in, i haven’t heard a single bad comment. it was suppose to be the movie of the century and it most definitely was. a three-hour movie is very long, but good thing the movie had a fair share of humor. i was so impressed everyone made an appearance including black panther, spiderman, doctor strange etc. with the large cast, my favourite character has been and is still captain america. the three hour movie did leave me with a very stiff back, neck, and butt

day 1980 – spiderverse

the first blank page in 2019 was written by spiderman in spiderverse. i couldn’t turn down my friends again two times in three days so i rushed over from my consult to hit up cineplex for spider verse matinee. i’ll be honest and didn’t completely understand part way when multiple ‘spiderman’ showed up, but like all the spiderman movies in the past, they never fail. not a bad way to start the new year kicking it off with a movie. but just as the new year begins, work in back in business tomorrow. it’s been a chill and relaxing string of days off, a luxury i don’t get. i haven’t felt recharged for the longest time so i will wrap everything up and begin the new year strong

day 1974 – aquaman

img_20200130_2039529083338302767768681.jpgwatching movies in theatres nowadays is so pricey. i don’t catch many movies in theatre on their first week of showing, but aquaman was too good to pass up. i liked that the background story was well presented. i’d rank this one up there with the rest of the marvel movies. bumble bee, spiderman and grinch are next on my list to watch or stream. note to self that boxing day shopping isn’t only a morning, it’s a full day of craziness especially metrotown

day 1110 – companionship

img_20190811_1133286747062911931697498.jpgsundays are meant to be lazy, but we started off the day by hitting up nash because we both needed our lifting fix. the laziness ensued with a movie and some shopping before our evening feast. our busy and ever changing schedule has made it difficult for us to workout together, but we made it happen on one of our significant days. it’s been one heck of a ride, i am so glad to have a companion by my side for the roller coaster ride we call life

day 1072 – cinematic

image

staying indoors with a movie is much better than being outside with the muggy weather. the weather as of late has been disappointing. getting a good laugh out of central intelligence while munching on popcorn and sipping on lemonade. a movie date was then followed by some window shopping and a sushi dinner. the night didn’t end off in the best of ways, but it is what it is. it’ll be another day tomorrow
