day 1839 – gym socks

got on the highway and turned for home when i found out i left my gym socks at home. ended up hitting nash after dinner for a quick session of front squats, one of the few barbell exercises i can currently do. nothing like lifting some iron after many consecutive days of rough days at work. some days i question how sane i am to still be at this office. i really do miss this nash now that i don’t come as often due to work and commitments. but it’s here i find myself most comfortable and the place where i get in the best lifts

day 1673 – grunt sessionĀ 


needed some grunting moments as a source of outlet prior to having my taekwondo meeting with grandmaster. i really needed to unleash all that anger with endorphins emitting activities and iron was just the thing. the frustration of being continuously bombarded with phone calls and messages up to the hour of the meeting. didn’t kick up any of his calls because i didn’t want to be distracted by unrelated work matters. needless to say i was so distracted and deflated to the point where i didn’t want to hit the gym, but i’m glad i did it on a day where i felt so unmotivated

day 1227 – what snow

so it’s snowing outside but not even snow stops me from this part of my day. my lifts are getting better but not progressing to where i had hoped. i need to work a little harder on them but my back is giving me lots of trouble i don’t know where it’s misaligned, locked, tight or strained. in the meantime i also need fix my eating that has gotten really poor with days where i wouldn’t have an appetite

day 1226 – car ironing

image

thinking about car tires all day because of expected snowfall in the city and the new tire regulations up sea to sky highway. good thing both problems are resolved. one, by stacking some plates in my trunk to the add weight to my car. it might not be much, but should still make it more grounded and a bit less susceptible to skidding. the second, confirmed that my mom’s car tire meets the regulations to get up whistler

day 932 – unyielding

if taping up my thumb solves the problem then there’s no problem. a visit to the doctor might be inevitable if the pain persists, but in the meantime, let’s get some work done. this place has been more than a sanctuary for me through my many moods and emotions. whatever i am going through, be it stresses and problems, the gym and its iron is the cure to most of it

day 822 – back in motion

image

really my first time back in the gym after knee failing and having a brief scare with my ligament diagnosis two weeks ago; and that for me, is beyond a long break. i was a little worried i wouldn’t be capable of anything near my best but most of my motions felt alright. it felt really good just to be back cause i missed it dearly – i just missed moving, period. definitely pushed it pretty hard today and expect to be pretty sore tomorrow but that’s a price i will pay
