day 1894 – gym dates

keeping the gym going on through the thanksgiving long weekend. working mainly on my upper body push pull exercises. taken on a challenge with my friends to to get swole and make gains in the next ninety days. i’m pretty set on my goal to cut weight, improve body composition and make those abs more visible. this will be a big test of determination, but i can’t allow any limitations make me lose sight of any of my goals

day 1875 – treadmill intervals

spent my off day from flipping for a rare cardio moment because i simply can’t find a way to appreciate it. i don’t think i’ve been on a treadmill for more than five minutes since i last did the sunrun. by the end of it, i was dropping with sweat. my lower body is so taxed from my regular activities i need not to do more leg work even more on my off days. the rest of the time was for core, stretching and rolling

day 1825 – family doctor

this is a rather big deal when i make it an exception and visit my family doctor. after many months of ghosting her, even she was surprised to see me. she asked a bunch of questions, did some tests and wrote two referral notes and off i went. i took a day off work to run around from clinic to clinic; these tests and xrays are so time consuming. hopefully the results turn out negative. it’s a day off away from the office but not really – an influx of emails and a presentation to prepare for kept me busy

day 1579 – sunday workday

it started off having a laid back sunday morning before getting into work. good that i don’t have a 7:30am start on sunday as well so i could sleep in a little after a late night of partying. had no urgency to sleep after a night like this, but once in a while is okay. worked another blackbelt test and the rest of my time spent completing a bunch of modules. banking these extra hours hopefully to pay off and gets accredited for in the future

day 1466 – out there

i did not sleep much last night, or maybe didn’t sleep at all. instead, i drove out around and around thinking of so many harmful things and thinking i want to be out of this misery. then it’s like i woke up from a dream and went on with my life like every saturday – more of work. this day it’s all me holding up the whole class alone got me quite drained. good thing i didn’t up having some fun at drop in hockey or else i would probably have crashed at some point

day 1463 – bpm meetingĀ 

mid week morning meeting is tough without a splash of caffeine. i was suppose to take a half day off last week but that didn’t happen. the form was filled out and sitting on my desk since mid july, but finding an appropriate day to take my half day off is harder than i thought. if i continue to fail, it will turn into twenty days of consecutive work. working fifty seven hour a week is like a fourteen day work week and i definitely don’t want to get sucked into doing that like before

day 1404 – priority listĀ 

fitbit shows me i need to put myself higher on the priority list and sleep a little more. sadly the amount i worked this week doubled the amount of sleep i got. i never really got a break and the start of another work week is in just a few hours away. i’m not looking forward to next week working all seven days. i am not always guaranteed a weekend, but at least this week i still have sunday off as a small breather
