day 977 – woodburn

image

stopped by woodburn for a quick shopping spree before heading back north. shopping can be a dangerous thing for my poor wallet. i went ahead and bought yet another pair of nike frees to add to my collection. it was a very enjoyable and fulfilling trip here in portland; i found myself preserving for what i wanted to accomplish. i can’t wait to get through that six hour drive and be back in vancity

day 967 – reebok crossfitters

image

so excited my new reebok crossfits arrived in the mail today. i tried them on immediately after getting home and they fit and feel amazing on my feet. i have a strong feeling i am going to fall in love with this once i get this into the gym. this is the first reebok shoes i bought since my early 2000s basketball shoes. now i can fully retire my first generation free run that served me so well day in day out. impulsive purchases got the better of me as with many other occasions; i definitely need to hold back for a while

day 731 – just gyming

image

heading to the gym crippled but leaving happy because my ankle exceeded all my expectations. some heavy taping on my ankle makes it that much more functional, i can fall asleep easy feeling like it accomplished something today. even though i know it needs rest in order to heal properly, i also had the urge to test it out to get a better idea of what it will allow me to do this weekend. i hate waiting and i cannot be patient with these things

resolution series: [two] decisions

image

decision making is a skill that humans slowly develop over time, but one may not notice it is not an innate skill. every child starts off with their parents doing the decision making because we are too young to make sensible choices. i have always had my parents make decisions for me no matter how big or small and that carried through to up and including university. i started later than most people and have developed too much reliance on my parents and others which may be the cause of my often indecisiveness. all i ever did was go with the flow and following the the instructions they give. but there comes a time when they have to slowly let go and let me make more of the decisions. sometimes the choices i make will be good and sometimes not so good, but its all a part of growing up and a learning curve that i must make. sure enough my parents will always be in the background giving me logical advice to consider because they’ve been through something i haven’t yet. sometimes it’s as simple as choosing the shoe i want to wear, which may seem harder than it really is. but i am slowly getting the hang of it by taking charge of my choices and paving for the road i want to travel

day 489 – gym attire

image

it’s cold outside but its never too cold to wear shorts to the gym. time to get it going, work off all that excess fatty food and drinks that i have been consuming far too carelessly. not giving myself the opportunity to make excuses tonight, got to keep it consistent regardless of the pain because the exercise certainly won’t do itself. the fat must go die cause i don’t want it to stay in my body any longer

day 121 – new kicks

image

waited long enough and finally pulling out my brand new free runs out of hibernation and into action. they are so comfortable, lightweight and most importantly it lives up to its name free. love the sharp pink colour and also the many wicked colour combinations out there. i am already eager to shop for another pair of free runs
