day 1168 – nailed it

image

i felt good when i tested my back two days ago, so i’m going for more. i said i wanted to be back in the one plate club so i went and got it – without extra pain. i had to scale my activities and exercises down considerably for two months and was shut down from almost everything for the past three weeks, but i think i finally see the light again. i’m stoked to get back into the thick of things, but i’ll still take it step by step. also very pleased that my midterm was extremely well done, although there’s one mark i shouldn’t have lost

day 841 – twinsies

image

got myself an additional blender bottle because one is simply not enough; a full purple to add to my half purple. i find that the extra compartments to store my stuff is something i have missing out on all along. i never thought it would critical to have the extra compartment and that it only took out unncessary space but it has proven me wrong. putting it to good use right off the bat because i an on roll and on a mission to string together many consecutive days. not letting the soreness get to me, not letting it be an excuse to break my momentum

day 795 – weekend warrior

image

feeling like a weekend warrior so i woke up early for a brief tennis session followed by gym. i am sick, but that doesn’t really stop me much, or at all. all this was completed before noon so onwards with the rest of my day. i miss going to this place so much but i know i will be back and need to be back much more consistently. my schedule this fall season just got a lot busier in a hurry but i wouldn’t complain because as long as my body can handle it, i will do it

resolution series: [one] finish

image

life presents many unexpected circumstances that act as distractions away from our intended goals. with so much going on in our daily lives, it’s easy to lose sight of what we need to focus on and follow through with. i always need to be reminded to finish whatever i started because i have the tendency of always wanting to give up when things get hard, particularly for things that i am not good at. i have been on the receiving end of many wake up calls and lectures that i must stop avoiding my weaknesses and in turn confront them head on. some things just came to me naturally; i need not to put much effort in to succeed. i have little problem following through with what i excel at but that cannot be said for things that didn’t come naturally. i excelled in swimming at a young age and swimming was my life. but when life got busy, i quit just short of getting my lifeguard certification and it still haunts me to this day. taekwondo came naturally early on but since i am so injury plagued, countless people tried to make me stop. but no matter how many times i fell and how many challenges and injuries i faced, i got back up and did what i needed to do. i wanted to prove everyone wrong and more importantly, i wanted to do this for myself and make up for my past regrets. running was never my thing as i found it boring and tiresome but i put in the effort to make improvements in this area. since i began taking rehab and strengthening exercises seriously, i have made leaps and bounds in my ability and recovery but there’s still a long way to go to get to where i want to be. so this year, i want to make my best effort to work on all those weaknesses and train it to become my strength. i know i cannot always carry self doubt with me everywhere, i just go out and make it happen
