day 649 – phone call

image

taking advantage of our unlimited nationwide calling now that we are separated by three time zones. what we initially set out to be a half hour phone call became a two and a half hour conversation. we were both really tired but there was so much to talk about, we lost track of time. it was way past midnight vancouver time before we knew it and didn’t climb into bed until almost 3am

day 564 – feel special

image

i came home to find this sitting on my kitchen table with my name on the card. a special delivery but both the gift and card are anonymous. it was a long day, but coming home to see this made the fatigue less intrusive and my evening a little more soothing. thanks to the wonderful person for brightening my day with a thoughtful message and lovely flowers, happy valentines day

day 505 – drained

image

feeling awfully drained and really needing a break. no doubt i knew there would come a time when my mind and body will not allow me to continue with the kind of schedule i run on. its been wearing down on me for over half a year and now my mind is ready to go on strike. i wake up everyday feeling crappy and even more so exhausted knowing the things i have to get through day after day. all i want to do is shut off the world and finish what i have to do. it’s christmas season and all i am too drained to even enjoy it. i try to hide all that stress and pretend everything is okay because i don’t want to put it upon anyone else but somehow it’s showing through my shell. i need a break, i know its not time yet, but i know it’s coming in a couple more weeks

day 356 – power matcha

image

forgot mine on the go so grabbed a power matcha to fill my protein after physio. tasted good but too filling for my bladder and made me go pee twice in less than an hour. overall happy with how my appointment went, everything seems to be stable and moving in the good direction. able to do my regular exercises with ease and also more difficult variations of those exercises without feeling discomfort, only fatigue from the recent lack of exercise. worked hard to get to this point and it’s certainly showing progress but still got a long way to go before i can say its comfortable

day 333 – hot summer day

image

a green tea frappuccino to quench my thirst on a hot summer day filled with taekwondo. vanquishing the last of my five-hour weekend that is coming to an end just as it started. definitely need more down time before i begin another week of neverending work and practice. work hard play hard doesn’t apply when theres no time leftover for play. only a matter of time before my i hit the wall from this inhumane schedule

day 151 – cypress open to close

image

beauty overlooking cypress bowl from above in the night time. stayed up on the mountain from open to 7:30pm and skied on all the runs with a mixture of both beginners and super advanced totalling at least 25 runs. slope conditions were bad in morning but improved when it started snowing after noon. today must be a good day for skiing, bumped into so many different groups of people. wonder if i will still be able to move and do exercise tomorrow
