day 1517 – ruined

nothing but disappointment missing my monday workout, missing dodgeball but that’s exactly what happened today. this forces me to rearrange this week’s workout schedule. i haven’t cramped this hard in a long time, but it was more than that which made it worse than waking up on the wrong side of the bed. it was an unrestful night where i laid in bed for hours not being able to fall asleep and when i finally do, i get woken up several times in sweat. even in terrible condition, had no choice but to to go to work because i had stuff to hand over

day 1504 – nothing extra

one of the rare days i’m headed straight home from work because my hip and knee started causing havoc. i tried to alleviate the inflammation by icing, flossing, rolling, but nothing seemed to be the solution. i was optimistic it would get better evening so i should be good to go to the gym, but wasn’t the case. it got so bad that even with a knee brace on, all i really could do was sit in front of my desk and do some catch up paperwork

day 1222 – plug away

meeting at coffee shop to actually do some work on building my library project. with two days before the deadline, it’s a must to get down to business and be productive. i regretfully procrastinated again and have tons and left myself with no choice but to work until 2am to get as much as i can done since i won’t have time to do so tomorrow. i don’t know why i always make it so hard on myself, that’s something i must work on

day 855 – get it together

image

feeling really upset with myself today for making poor decisions. also feeling upset that my hyperextended elbow got worse during dodgeball tonight. not cool especially with my all important playoffs coming up this weekend. no doubt i will turn it around starting tomorrow and stay the course. can’t stress how important it is from here on, no more hiccups allowed. need to constantly remind myself i have important things to do and big goals to reach

day 841 – twinsies

image

got myself an additional blender bottle because one is simply not enough; a full purple to add to my half purple. i find that the extra compartments to store my stuff is something i have missing out on all along. i never thought it would critical to have the extra compartment and that it only took out unncessary space but it has proven me wrong. putting it to good use right off the bat because i an on roll and on a mission to string together many consecutive days. not letting the soreness get to me, not letting it be an excuse to break my momentum

day 758 – physio checkup

image

having my regular morning physio check up and it was a positive one, held up nicely since last visit and that’s huge for me. it’s a sign of progress and a big step in the right direction considering i have been doing a fair amount of my activities during this time span. my reward for having such positive feedback is some trolling courtesy of my physio and kinesiologist who demanded some unexpected numbers and then threw a curveball at me. i had a lot of hesitation but they gave me the sense there was no way out of it knowing i must do it or i am not going home

day 716 – take me back

image

take me back home to where i belong. where the night meets the day seamlessly and not much could get in the way of me and my dreams. when i thought i had friends that would last forever and get me through tough times. what i dreamt i would accomplish and make a difference in this world. who i thought i would become to be strong enough to withstand. how i thought i would live my life, standing affront the beach and gazing out at sunset
