day 1895 – tiramisu mousse

the guilt of eating the mom’s tiramisu birthday cake is strong, but what’s in my stomach is already inside and can’t be changed. this cake eating was necessary to celebrate the most important woman in my world. the cake was so delicious i even had an extra half a slice. i’ll make this an exception and stay clean for the next stretch. just have to work harder to burn it all off

day 1893 – western lake

it’s always a special occasion when the best mom i know is celebrating her birthday. together, we celebrated at western lake restaurant with some chinese food. as the years pass by, the amount of time i spend with her lessens and is sporadic at times. my schedule is horrendously packed on a regular basis, but i do what i can to set aside time for family. for that reason, having everyone together like tonight is important. i’ll continue to re-evaluate my priorities to see how i can better manage everything else on my plate

day 1780 – father’s dinner

end of the week finally came and the eye bag represents how much the work week has really exhausted me. the evening was spent celebrating father’s day with the man that taught me much of what i know. the family is a whole unit and it would be incomplete without any one of the members. we’re all busy in our own ways, but we make sure that never changes. the whole family gets together during special times like this

day 1745 – mom appreciation 

the fact my family is going on vacation starting tomorrow means an early mothers day celebration. i don’t show enough, but i truly appreciate my supermom that never fails to take care of me. we rarely go out for vietnamese food cause my parents don’t like the seating, but had to try this place since it’s a highly touted authentic vietnamese restaurant. the lineup outside is always so long, somehow we got a table within fifteen minutes of waiting. this prices wasn’t cheap for sure, but the food was really good, especially the lemon grass chicken. when i said may is a busy month, i do mean it 

day 1704 – mills shopping 


i haven’t had time to go out and shop in ages and today i made up for the lack of new clothing. i went to tsawwassen mills to catch some easter deals; spent over three hundred bucks and bought a total of nine tops, two bottoms, and three pairs of shoes. it’s the only time i’ll be able to go shopping because of the rare day off. i went through months and months of not buying things for myself so it was much needed splurging. couldn’t find the new gym shoes i wanted but still satisfied having gotten roshes. i still wanted to keep shopping if the outlet wasn’t about the close

day 1692 – indian wells

the amount of output yesterday got me and my body good so i decided it was a sunday worth letting my body recover a little. so many body parts are currently quite shattered so taking time off for one or maybe two days isn’t too much to ask for. even if i forced it, i would only be half assing my designated heavy leg day. instead, i spent like how most people treat sundays, relaxing and watching indian wells finals. i’m very disappointed federer lost the match, but he just wasn’t on his game from the beginning

day 1644 – bayside dineout


i was quite reluctant to join in on the dineout vancouver festival, but mom insisted on taking visiting relatives out to a special dinner. aside from the lone boring topic that bored me to death, the dineout menu was actually quite good. i especially liked my appetizer of ahi tuna with mango and avocado. it’s apparent i can never get tired of eating salmon. the striploin steak wasn’t bad but i couldn’t finish as usual but got help as usual. the eating as gone awry over the last few weeks and it has to stop immediately. i told myself after this meal, i’ll gear down and be much more disciplined with my eating
