day 2004 – roundoff game

a few weeks ago, my roundoff didn’t look remotely like a roundoff. i made up my mind that i wanted to change that so i worked on it every class, it’s really come a long way since. deep down, i ultimately wanted the roundoff backtuck but i didn’t want to press for it and waited for my coaches to have confidence in me first cause clearly i didn’t. it was offered today and i’m very happy i chose to go for the roundoff backtuck at the end of today’s session. i went home really feeling really satisfied knowing that i’ve taken a big step towards attaining what i’ve always wanted

day 1120 – try, try, try again

snatching is one of the harder lifts i have come across, but that makes me want to get it that much more. practicing them can be frustrating at times because i give up too easily and fail to lock out. i wasn’t satisfied with the many failed attempts and low success rate so i was determined to keep going until i finally got it. by the end of it, i must have made at least thirty attempts. my back took a hard hit from the barbell, but rewatching my videos motivate me. there’s no better feeling than not giving up to succeed in something i wanted

day 700 – larger than life

i have never ever seen or even heard of an order of bubble tea served in a pitcher containing all the toppings available. i wouldn’t dare order that because the amount of sugar in that pitcher alone is enough to cause diabetes and cause my organs and system some trouble. just looking at that already makes me really full and bloated. the deal was if my friend can finish that in one sitting without puking, the pitcher is on me. happy 700th day post, this blog has certainly come a long way

day 666 – long visit

this is me being super bored when i had nothing better to do while waiting with not much doing at appointment this morning. i knew it was going to busy but had to squeeze it in before physio leaves to check up on my banged up legs and body. today also marks the fourth anniversary of my first foot fracture. never forget what i went through, always remember how hard i worked to stand back up. it’s a good feeling to look back and see how far i have come since being removed from the fracture and on my way for bigger and better things

day 302 – familiar territory

erratic visits lately to fix my knee problems that’s been sidelining me for the past week. almost any kind of bending is prohibited aside from walking, this to me feels worse than imprisonment. three years today was the first time i broke my foot. how far i have come and how much i have gone through to get to this point and i will stop at nothing because i know it will only get stronger and better

day 114 – throwback

made this two and a half years ago to keep track of how many days my broken bones have kept off any sports, physical activities and much of my social life. every x marked each and every day that i suffered through, no doubt the worst time of my life. use this as a reminder to never give up on what i love, fight for my passion and always remember the tough times i had to go through to get to where i am today
