day 2500 – hoarders

looking ahead to when i get my hands on one of the highest sought after commodities of covid – bumper plates. basically all fitness equipment has been out of stock since the very beginning. all fitness stores are severely depleted because everyone is hoarding. i can’t wait to have my own women’s olympic barbell and a set of bumper plates in my garage gym. a nice set of equipment to suit my needs will be expensive, but it’ll be an investment that will have great returns in years to come

day 2440 – grocery shop

the day time was designated to do all the grocery shopping with my mom. we dressed and equipped ourselves with masks and gloved before heading out to both superstore and t&t. the lineup going in wasn’t too bad, but we had to load up on the necessities and stock up our fridge and freezers for more than a week. i didn’t expect tofu to be completely sold out at superstore. we carted out around more than two hundred dollars worth of groceries from each store. the whole journey took over three hours, so long i didn’t even bother eating lunch

day 2429 – garage equipment

at apex for a private session working on my clean and jerks . the clean feels fine, but that jerk still feels somewhat disconnected, but still worked up to match my heaviest fifty-two kilos. the coach graciously lent me a set of equipment i could practice at home during this covid time. i get a men’s bar, and some lighter weights to practice safely. loading and unloading all that was a workout of its own

day 2358 – packed parking

just trying to get to the gym after work and the parking lot was jam packed. i normally don’t go to the is location after work since i’d be in richmond, but today was different because i worked from home. once i got into the gym finally, the whole gym was so crowded i couldn’t really do everything that i wanted before i took off. it’s a combination of rush hour and resolutioners that made this place so full and uninviting. i’ll only come to this location during off peak hours

day 2350 – nacho business

getting my new nacho jersey after two and a half months out of the nachos lineup and first game since we’ve been tiered down. this will be shortest bench of the season of only nine skaters, so we went with six forwards and three defense. rolling three defense was tough, we ran out of gas by the end of the game. despite the short bench, it was really fun and enjoyable now that we’re in a suitable tier

day 2277 – girl can dream

a design concept i’ve stayed up many late nights thinking and working on this model. i’ve really taken this concept to heart hoping one day i could own a space like this and run my own business. i imagined a space reasonably sized, but with all the necessary equipment arranged in what i deem as the most ideal layout. a space i own could never go without a personal gym space. i wonder if and when this could become a reality. i understand for this to happen, a lot of steps and obstacles must be taken, but i’ll keep dreaming in the meantime

day 2259 – film set

a couple men came into the office carrying a whole bunch of equipment. apparently, we hired a filming company to record some footages for our new company website video. i don’t know what it’s all about, but they conveniently set their equipment at my desk and i was too shy to go back to my desk to work. i was then forced to take lunch because i couldn’t do anything productive

day 2228 – self care sundays

img_20200124_1549582392730685212064989.jpghardly ever spend time on my skin care, but figured my lazy sunday is the perfect time to do it. the secret of staying twenty four is not doing anything for it and then treating it with the once in a blue moon face mask. i also got around to washing my car and washing my hockey gear, both of which was in dire need of cleaning. it’s cloudy and drizzly, hope it air dries in time before my next game

day 2083 – sanders sanding

brought all my plyometric boxes into flightclub so we could all so some sanding together. we waited until the parking lot cleared out before we got started and didn’t finish until well past dinner time. at that point, i was too tired to join them for late night wings, so i went home and ate whatever was leftover. i should have been more prepared to be covered in sawdust. now that sanding is complete, i’m debating if i should do a paint job and add a rubber surface to the tops
