day 2423 – ramen eggs

it’s definitely weird to be staying in on a saturday afternoon instead of being at the dojo teaching. since there’s no teaching, i went to an apex session after much debate and hesitation due to covid-19. i had a really good session snatching up to forty kilos, clean and jerking fifty kilos and squatted a plate. i’m so happy to be out of the confined space and move my rotting body. i went home for lunch and made my first the six-minute egg. it turned out really well and made my noodles tasted extra delicious

day 1999 – gamblers corner

hitting up grand villa because i felt the need to earn the money i lost back on new years eve. since the craps table wasn’t open when i arrived, i gave black jack table a shot. most of my time was spent at there and it treated me well. once i won back the fifty, i knew that was the time to cash out and call it a day. the rest of the day was spent rather inactive just catching up on some work before taking me dad out to dinesty for a belated birthday dinner

day 1504 – nothing extra

one of the rare days i’m headed straight home from work because my hip and knee started causing havoc. i tried to alleviate the inflammation by icing, flossing, rolling, but nothing seemed to be the solution. i was optimistic it would get better evening so i should be good to go to the gym, but wasn’t the case. it got so bad that even with a knee brace on, all i really could do was sit in front of my desk and do some catch up paperwork

day 1056 – softball action

image

i am not used to the inactive and idle nights now that i have an extended break before the next season. i took the field tonight for my first ever organized softball game. i have never played softball before but i caught on quickly and made several nice plays. it was a fun night; i enjoyed the casual night of throwing balls and the team spirit that comes with . it’s a sign i miss being on a team and maybe should have joined a league for the summer

day 882 – sedentary

image

not quite sure what i did to my calf, but one was hurting so much i could barely walk down the stairs. stayed home all day and barely had any activity, my fitbit probably thought i was dead. at last i couldn’t take it anymore and had to go out to the gym because i felt trapped and uninspired. since i wasn’t very mobile, the decision probably didn’t make sense to many, but it did for me. i felt both my brain and my body were rotting at home and needed the boost – surely it must be signs of gym withdrawal

day 808 – migraine season

image

trapped at home tonight because the migraine is really getting to me. been bothered by a wave of migraines recently certainly makes it a little concerning considering it’s gotten much better in the recent years. so had to opt out of going to gym and taekwondo, instead laid on the couch to watch the jays game and catch up on some drama. a disappointing game it was, hope tomorrow’s game will be better for the jays

day 796 – slow moving

image

feels like a perfect sunday wasted. the sun is shining for once and all i did was teach in the morning and attend a marcom meeting in the afternoon. opted to skip out on gym as planned and not actively enjoying the rare sunshine we will hardly get in next few months. i hope the lethargic feeling goes away soon cause i can’t afford to be an antisocial couch potato
