day 2357 – snow day

all day the news was warning everyone to stay off the roads because cars and busses were getting stuck or sliding everywhere. i wasn’t about to risk my safety driving out in the horrid road conditions, especially without winter tires. good thing i got the laptop last week so i had the option to work remotely. i was sad i couldn’t even go to the gym. since the office called it a day at 2pm, i spontaneously ventured out in the snow. here’s me being optimistic runners would suffice; i totally did not expect the snow to be a foot deep and probably should have dressed warmer. i switched the boots and plowed around in the snow

day 2013 – frozen pipes

shadow desperately needed a bath, but the outdoor pipes are frozen. i attempted to do a quick rinse anyway. i found filled a bucket with water, but that clearly didn’t work as planned every time i put water on to the car, it would immediately freeze and turn into ice. i’m afraid i won’t be able to give it a good wash until the weather warms up, which hopefully wouldn’t be too long of a wait

day 1889 – beyonce concert

can’t say no when work offered free tickets to beyonce and jayz concert. i was getting impatient when the show was delayed an hour before some chloe x halle came on for a couple intro songs. it was also freezing inside bc place, but when beyonce hit the floor, she really did put on a show. the stadium was down right shaking when the music came on. it was a good show but ran way too late on a weeknight

day 1668 – weathering


the cold vancouver winter is quite frightful and unpleasant for my shadow. the weather forecast has issued a heavy snowfall warning that starts at 6am. i don’t enjoy the snow on city roads because i’m slipping and skidding everywhere. the sight lines up at the mountain is a much better view. it’s making me think back on the warm summer days when i would be outdoor without frozen fingers

day 1067 – hillcrest

i haven’t taught at richmond for a long long time. got my full day of teaching in today starting at 9:30am and it wasn’t too bad at all. after a long shift, i revisited hillcrest to watch some drop in which reminded me of the hillcrest gym days i used to have. the area was busy with vancouver canadians playing as well. it was disappointing that even though the facility is newer and nicer, it wasn’t equipped with the heater like sunset rink

day 517 – chilli day

image

putting in the work as part of my kinesiologist’s version of his new year’s gift to me before my physio crucified my knee. i do appreciate all the push i have gotten this year to strengthen my weaknesses and i will continue to improve and work even harder next year. on my way out of physio to see this gorgeous view of downtown with white mountains in the background. not a good day to be under dressed when the weather is minus four degrees

day 489 – gym attire

image

it’s cold outside but its never too cold to wear shorts to the gym. time to get it going, work off all that excess fatty food and drinks that i have been consuming far too carelessly. not giving myself the opportunity to make excuses tonight, got to keep it consistent regardless of the pain because the exercise certainly won’t do itself. the fat must go die cause i don’t want it to stay in my body any longer
