day 2720 – latte stop

stopped at my usual blenz for my usual matcha latte after my chiropractor appointment. my back has been acting up but not for no reason. i felt really deprived and wanted to training last night even if i was limited to what i can train. knowing very well i’ll pay the price afterwards, i’d still do it any day because i needed to move around to keep my sanity above water

day 2693 – kind cafe

been meaning to stop by this vegan cafe to check out their coffee and decor. it’s a nicely laid out place with two stories, lots of signage and a unique art piece with a lit up peace sign. i tried their regular latte with what they called vegan mylk. i wouldn’t say it tasted better or worse, but it tasted different than the normal. their overpriced items and deposit on the coffee mug was not a selling point

day 2510 – starbucks vibe

the starbucks addiction that i’ve managed to rip off is creeping back in. i really needed my caffeine fix this morning since my friend dropped by for an early lift. i wasn’t planning to do any exercise so my finger could have a break, but watching them made me want to do things too. i woke up far too sore in my lower back to do any more lower body work. i stuck with lighter upper body lifts like overhead press, skullcrushers and delt raises. still got a pretty decent workout in before i did some back end work

day 2313 – cafe artisans

long talks and coffee kind of day on a cold sunday december afternoon. i can’t believe it’s already the start of december. i just couldn’t wait to turn the page past a horrendous november and move forward to a better december and an even brighter 2020 year ahead. by the time holiday rolls around, i hope to put the finger woes behind me and figure out much of the uncertainties surrounding my ankle

day 1705 – coffee and work


the easter long weekend continues and it has really let me shift my gears a little. i must admit not going into work throughout the weekend is a big change. homeworking at a coffee shop because month end means lots of work piling on. it feels working full time is not suffice as there’s not enough time to get them done during work hours. stationed my work and laptop at prado sipping on my customized latte. had to wrap up march with a work session and get some planning done for the month of april. it’ll be an interesting month as there’s a lot in store for april

day 1302 – skinny latte

img_20200204_1657458026898167595129842.jpgday three and i can walk without pain but the bigger question is can i kick, can i play, can i still compete?? there’s progress every day but my leg is still bothering me and stopping me from doing fun things. i’m not going to lie, but i was on the fence with skipping class. in the end i chose to go to school to be a good student and tried to be productive. caffeine intake was necessary so i can get through school

day 829 – gift of goodness

today i received a gift of goodness in a warm red cup. at first i was a little puzzled cause i didn’t know why. afterwards she told me she really appreciates all the help and wanted to thank me for the work i did. what i did was no big deal because i only do what i can whenever i can. it was a very nice gesture that filled my heart and made my day. this kind of action is a reminder to never overlook the act of kindness and any kind of acknowledgement. it’s the little things that adds up to mean a lot. i, for one, felt it today
