day 2552 – home care

stay home a lot whenever i’m not training. took some time to do a little self care on my shins. my shins have been really overworked to the point it’s irritated, which makes me even more irritated because i can’t train my moves desirably. i really do want my cart front to happen soon as july is ending. it’s been playing so many mind games with me, but i don’t know when i’ll get the go ahead that i’m ready

day 1079 – partner in crime

image

there were uncalled emotional moments which i couldn’t suppress. tears happened because i have been pretending to be strong for too long. i can count on him knowing he wants to be there during my worst and toughest moments. it has been very tough lately, but i know it’s much easier to weather the storm together. happy for the passing of another month; keeping it strong and keeping it real throughout

day 1059 – surfing the wave

image

i’ve always been reminded to never take life for granted and live life to its fullest with no regrets. flashback to last year when i was one with the wave and riding on water for the very first time. i crossed off one thing from my bucketlist that day; i wonder what it would be this summer. summer season is upon us once again and if we’re not careful, it will flash by before we know it

day 649 – phone call

image

taking advantage of our unlimited nationwide calling now that we are separated by three time zones. what we initially set out to be a half hour phone call became a two and a half hour conversation. we were both really tired but there was so much to talk about, we lost track of time. it was way past midnight vancouver time before we knew it and didn’t climb into bed until almost 3am

day 623 – weird friend

image

sometimes the random ideas that goes through a person’s mind can be really absurd. in this case, i am certain he was completely sober when we were having this discussion that associated the benefits of chocolate intake and possible kidnapping scenario. i can confirms some of my friends can be on a different wavelength from the rest, but i guess that’s how i can tell them apart and that’s what makes them special

day 602 – subliminated debut

image

it was a slow start to dodgeball after a two week layoff, but got better as the night went on. as competitive minded as we are, dodgeball isn’t all about wins and loses. we were having some fun, getting up close and personal with the camera on our new jersey debut. we are finally able to take our team photo with the whole team present and debuting our spiffy new jerseys which i am truly proud of. feeling good with the jerseys and well on our way to winning best dressed

day 492 – stop drop selfie

image

my interpretation of a constipation face or just a normal reaction from the pain of rolling out knots. i figured the most appropriate response to the stop drop selfie challenge is to do a stop drop and roll selfie, literally. thought this was a pretty good way to end the week by taking awkward pictures of myself foam rolling on the ground after a friday night class. the truth is, i do this quite often

day 490 – quote of the day

image

a little humour never hurts, especially to get through a not so spectacular week. its been that kind of week where lots of things are happening but just can’t seem to have them go my way. here’s a little inspiration from a friend that made my day. it may not sound grammatically correct, but it gets the point across and serves its purpose. the quote can’t be more suitable for my situation and all the things i have to deal with

day 439 – thanksgiving dimsum

image

the only time i get to have dimsum with my family is mostly during statutory holidays, which happens no more than once a month. thanksgiving isn’t about eating turkey, it means i sit down and enjoy a decent meal with important people in my life that support and shape me in addition be appreciative of all that i am given because there’s less fortunate people out there

day 419 – my rationale

image

life is all about getting over challenges to be able to enjoy the things i consider fulfilling and meaningful. everyone has different values in life and many have disagreed with my decisions but have supported me in ways possible. no stranger to pain and injuries but today is one of those days where i feel absolutely grateful at my appointment. for the first time in a long time, i actually feel like i have my legs under me and all the beating i have taken is paying off. a big shout out to my physio and kinesiologists who have kept me in my sports throughout the years. couldn’t have done it without any one of you
