day 2516 – zoom meeting

i was just happy to be back training and almost forgot about my taekwondo zoom meeting in the evening. deadlifts in the morning garage session felt heavy, but one eighty five still felt minimally manageable. my knee is still in a great discomfort so being able to do any movement is already a win. i wonder if there’s still hope of making my two plate one rep max goal next week to salvage a completely disappointing june. i had to be very cautious with how my body felt at tricking, but being able to do any made me feel better and i have no regrets

day 2488 – grandmaster zoom

the grandmaster ordered a zoom meeting for the committee of instructors who will be teaching private lessons starting june. i was really annoyed the grandmaster spoke to me as if i haven’t seen the posted information when i had written all the material he’s holding onto. instead, he gave the credit to someone else and completely disregarded my everything i contributed. what a petty move on his part, but i didn’t know how to deal with it but i’m not one to invoke any confrontation

day 2427 – nacho zoom

while social distancing has distanced the nacho friends, we needed a way to virtually see each other’s faces. it was good to see what everyone was up to during the quarantine days. all of us are bored and some of us have lost our day to day jobs. i hope to set up a zoom video conferencing regularly just so all of us can stay in touch and stay sane during this crazy time

day 2229 – safety meeting

health and safety meeting during lunch means i don’t get any break to take my mind off work related stuff. it was a long one since we have to go through and revise the standard first aid procedure. the company provided lunch is all carbs today – pasta and garlic bread from pizza hut. i eat very healthy at the office, but the company lunches don’t really fit in my macro

day 2209 – ashl info night

the ashl season is coming up quicker than we know it and it’ll be up to me and my assistant captain to to get everyone else up to speed. this is nacho friend’s first season in ashl, so attending the team rep meeting was pertinent. i never knew the league was so big, even the women’s division had forty one teams. picked up the all important league rule book so now i have some reading to do. i’m hoping this will be a fun team and a fun season

day 2002 – attire change

showed up to work dressed a little different today. the attire is different from my usual; a new turtle neck and cardigan. the colours of my wardrobe has a high level of consistency; still wearing my typical blacks and greys. though i was feeling a little insecure, i also felt a little more confident at the same time. the long weekly meeting i had with my manager in the morning was kind of important to me because it was i have felt a bit more distant from him since the transition. after our talk about catalytic coaching, i felt like i had a better sense of direction

day 1917 – red feather

a meeting was called to discuss about red feathers and how it went down. red feathers wasn’t exactly an easy project to to work on, nor was it one that people wanted to stick their hands in. what bugs me most is one person kept sticking her nose into things and stirring the pot. there’ll always be people who choose to point fingers, but i’m hopeful there’s enough that wants to solve the problem

day 1849 – la foret

marcom meeting at la foret to plan out the upcoming dodgeball season. it’s good to get together once in a while to make sure everything is clear and understand what’s expected of each person. i’m not big on cakes and pastries most of the time but i took home a raspberry mousse cake because i’m under the impression that the cakes and pastries here are very well known. i shared the piece with my parents and they both loved it. i guess delicacy like this is okay once in a while

day 1568 – aburi aburiĀ 

img_20200203_1447521930418015068583459.jpga little aburi and sashimi is a good way to get through the hump of the week. it could be whatever day, but sushi almost never fails me. it’s the kind of comfort food that can lighten mood and get me back on my ways. there’s no change in my erratic sleeping patterns; no matter which day, i’ll wake up several times throughout the night thinking i missed my alarm. a large part is from stress, as i prepare myself for my big day ahead of me

day 1524 – bruised butt

meetings got shifted around so immediately had a long meeting once i got into the office. it was so busy at work; before i knew it, it was already 11am and i have yet to eat my go to breakfast of peanut butter toast. i didn’t do a good job starting the month of october skipping my first meal, but i vouch to do better with eating. the fall in hockey really hit hard as i chose not to sit down at work all day because it gave my buttocks a ton of grief. i went to the gym to do my lower body workout which i probably shouldn’t have, but at least i exercised caution to make sure it didn’t cause it to feel worse. it was a much lighter day than i would have liked
