day 2171 – late comer

i arrived extremely late for civil war and it was almost like a gear up speed test to get onto the ice in time for the second shift. i was close to not going to hockey at all because i had been tied up with taekwondo, tired from an extra long shift of teaching and just tired in general. somehow, i got convinced and pressured to show up; i guess better late than never. i had to book it home after our ice time because i’m expecting to wake up at 6am tomorrow

day 1959 – swiss roll

it’s a bad idea when you hang out with food friends and all they want is try new dessert places. they also want to split the foods with you and inadvertently split the calories that comes with. this is a piece of the oolong tea swiss roll with a load of ganache in the centre. it was very tasty as expected. i wonder how my mildly lactose body will respond after devouring that

day 823 – pumpkin carving

image

evil cheshire was created by a team effort. i did my part early on before falling asleep on the couch halfway through and woke up to see it completed. i was super tired after such a long crazy week but wasn’t going to stop me from staying up late to chill out and watch a scary movie. no fright night this year, no kicking people as well and no crazy partying, but a halloween well spent carving pumpkin and eating junk food here and there, which i should probably feel guilty about

day 736 – night snacking

image

so happy it’s already humpday wednesday and halfway through!! i can’t express my love for long weekends accounting for short weeks because it makes getting through the week that much easier. it would be a perfect paradise if three day weekends existed every week. man, people are such bad influences on me for tempting me to do night snacking that i could not refrain from. i do feel a little guilty after devouring that toast box

day 697 – montreal poutine

image

and a poutine to wrap up my montreal nationals trip. i couldn’t leave montreal without having eaten their city’s most famous food – where the infamous smokery poutine originated. there’s a lot of guilt with every bite cause i have been eating too much and definitely too much filthy junk food all trip long. i definitely need a detox once i get back and everything should go back to normal with healthier foods

day 563 – vday decadence

image

it was a moxies kind of night. it was also a night i bandwagoned the whole eating protocol and got myself some baby bbq ribs. i figured pairing it with some kale would convince myself it contains a portion of healthy choices, that was until we received a free white chocolate ice cream brownie. been sort of letting it slip today after i was bummed out from some news regarding my competition obligations and left so bogged down i even skipped gym

reality in the making

image

ever had those dreams where when you wake up you don’t recall much of what happened or only recall fragmented pieces that doesn’t link up?? those temporary dreams that don’t make a lasting impression are not of my concern. when a dream worth achieving, it is a dream worth working for. a timely post to remind myself about discipline and self control because i have been doing poorly in that regard as of late. i guess that’s what separates dreams from reality and the mediocres and the good. thanks for always nudging me back on track when i start straying, reminding me the importance of the game plan and forever pushing me to do better. although sometimes it’s pretty brutal the way you put it, and you make me feel a little more useless than i need to. it is that guilt trip that lets me know i am not doing it right, that i can always do better. it takes a lot of commitment to make a dream into reality but once i put my mind to it, its reality in the making
