day 1149 – plate less

image

it’s an off day away from the gym once again so here’s my version of throwback thursday. every time i walk by this rack i have the urge to lift these. it’s been weeks since i have and i miss it too much. i disregarded restrictions and tried on a number of occasions, but ended up giving my back more setbacks. i’d be lying if i said i wasn’t in pain more than half my waking hour, but i want to keep doing what i do. more importantly, my october competition status is up in the air if it doesn’t get better soon. i can only stay patient for so long, and i am not a patient person when it comes to recovery. when will i be back lifting normally without pain??

day 313 – gym with restraints

i feel like i have been jailed far too long. hitting the gym for the first time in long stretch since sustaining my injury. been issued plenty of restraints that i am not to do anything involving my legs and will continue to be banned until further notice. sports is my passion and an integral part of my life and without it, my life is nothing but bland. i can’t help but feel hopelessness and wish someone wakes me up when all is better

day 195 – down time in downtown

taking some time off to refresh and wrap up all the grudge and negativity i hold as it is time to move on from the recent understanding or lack there of. wandering around and revisiting an area that i once spent countless hours during my studio. after briefly going down memory lane, a stop at the warehouse was in order

day 31 – late night bbt

at this hour, the only places that were open to serve food was defaulted between taiwanese restaurant if not a bar . not craving whitey food this late at night, so beefy beef it was. having late night bubble tea kind of night and catching up with a highschool friend i haven’t seen in a while. it’s incredible so much as changed since highschool, but we will learn to grow in some form
