day 1103 – know no japanese

image

my headache has improved as the days pass by, but all those hours of teaching and coaching caused a lot of havoc for my throat. my mom gave me some medication she bought in japan, ones that only provided instructions in japanese. it doesn’t help that i am japanese illiterate. little did i know how to take them; i just assumed they were to be ingested in some form which is exactly what i did

day 829 – gift of goodness

image

today i received a gift of goodness in a warm red cup. at first i was a little puzzled cause i didn’t know why. afterwards she told me she really appreciates all the help and wanted to thank me for the work i did. what i did was no big deal because i only do what i can whenever i can. it was a very nice gesture that filled my heart and made my day. this kind of action is a reminder to never overlook the act of kindness and any kind of acknowledgement. it’s the little things that adds up to mean a lot. i, for one, felt it today

day 771 – tennis fever

image

the plan for tonight was only to hit for roughly an hour and a half, but ended up going all out for three. so instead of a late dinner like i had initially told my mom, it ended up late night snacking at 10:30pm. started off mellow and hitting lightly, then round two heated up and everyone began ripping the ball like they wanted to take each other’s heads off. felt so good to let my swing loose, but my good knee didn’t feel so good halfway through, hope it will feel better tomorrow after a night of icing with frozen peas

day 745 – stocking

image

my obsession for protein bars and my quest to find the best ones continues. function is important but flavour is also a big factor in complimenting my many moods. stocking up in bulk and ready to go because i will be needing them. don’t mind me, i haven’t gone crazy but just doing what i need to do because this is the only way i can ever get enough protein intake in a day

day 675 – messy me

image

all i wanted to do was have my recovery drink but turns out i spent a lot more time cleaning up the mess i made than the time required to finish drinking. what made matters worse was i didn’t just fail once, but twice. the first scoop, powder flung out all over my table. then second scoop, i dropped the scoop and scattered on my lap, chair and floor. turns out to be too much work

day 599 – another weekend gone by

image

where has my weekend gone?? or realistically speaking do i ever get weekends. time just doesn’t seem to slow down especially when i am constantly caught up in this busy lifestyle. i needed to end it off with something that would feel ease the pain and uncompromising hardships we consistently deal with. i know this is terrible and is not approved of and it’s been going a bit downhill but how do i put that to a halt and get back to my real self

day 565 – absurd

image

how in the world can someone walk into the gym with a cane but leave without it after a workout. apparently it’s possible because i witnessed it first hand tonight in the change room and here’s a photo to prove it. bizarre things happen every now and then. the world is full of surprises and might throw you a curveball when you least expect it. i guess the surprises keep us on our toes and makes life interesting
