day 1793 – roller and flosser

the fact my body is badly bruised front and back is enough reason not to partake the after-work bootcamp. the excessive overworked body is sore from hip flexor, to hamstring, to calves, to traps, to shoulders, to lats. hence, i spent much time on the floor releasing myself. i did a pre-game roll on my softball and a post-game roll on foam roller and pvc pipe. since that wasn’t enough, i went one step further and did some flossing

day 1707 – autowest servicing 

the few downsides to driving expensive cars is the hefty expenses it comes with. took my beemer into autowest for my annual service which cost nearly a grand to do. it’s due for some bigger maintenance including spark plugs, brake fluid, oil change and fifty five point inspection. that’s quite a lot to service but no complaints on the service and shuttle pickups provided. my shadow left the dealership sparkling clean and ready to rock and roll

day 1623 – fully discharged

i’ve waited long and hard, to hear surgeon’s very words, i will discharge you from my hand clinic, congratulations. that was further confirmed at my physio appointment who also said i’m cleared for sports with no restrictions barring any pain. on top of that, he who rarely compliments me did so for i maintained my alignment since he last adjusted me. the usual hardwork with the kinesiologist who not only worked me hard on the rehab exercises, but also gave me extras stuff i never even thought was possible out of me. he’s one of the biggest reason i’ve improved so much through the years and i’m gratified he’s given me all these challenges. the back to back appointments couldn’t have tasted any sweeter as i left both clinics beyond elated to hear that i came out triumphant. i will be able to sleep well tonight

day 1441 – autowest 

i brought my german toy into annual maintenance for oil change. upon sitting down with the service advisor, he advised a few more parts to be upgraded or will soon need to be replaced, each item ranging from a couple hundred bucks to seven hundred. i’ll wait on those and in the meantime consult other technicians for professional opinion before making any decisions

day 1192 – fizz see oh

image

getting my maintenance work in for my beat up body so i can continue to beat up my body. i like to be active and i will continue to be for as long as i can. physio did mention he was very pleased with how well i held up for as long as i have been away. it’s also nice to hear from others that they’ve noticed my improvement and acknowledge what i can do; that’s a compliment i’ll gladly take. i’m here because you inspired and challenged me to be, but i’ll never be satisfied with myself because i know i can always be better

day 863 – depot run

image

flashback to getting my pipe roller from home depot. i bet the clerk was very suspicious of what this girl is building with pieces of pvc pipe. i go out of my way to doing what i need for maintenance. going to the gym is one of the absolute worst time to forget my phone and that’s exactly what happened today. i felt so lost and naked because i don’t have my headphones and music to get me through the grueling demands. but what needs to be done must be done

day 784 – regular correction

image

going for regular maintenance to fix whatever needs to be fixed. there’s definitely progress and improvement in upholding itself for a longer stretch. recent experiments to stretch out the length between appointments and it’s mostly provided positive feedback, but there’s still shortcomings to maintain it completely. felt so weak today for some odd reason, struggled the whole way through and didn’t make it to the finish line for some. today the weights i normally do just wasn’t going to happen. must work harder, can’t let it slide anymore
