day 1041 – spartan everyday

image

after having done my first ever spartan race on saturday, i feel like i could be a spartan everyday. i happily hit the gym on sunday, underestimating what my body had gone through. i only came to realization as i woke up this morning that my legs were jello. i could make excuses for myself, but mondays are never rest days for me – training must be done and dodgeball must go on. pushed myself really hard through a grueling training session today. my legs were no longer under me come dodgeball time, but i enjoy the feelings of pure exhaustion and these are the kind of things i want to be doing

day 1011 – unsleeping

image

coaching this early saturday morning made difficult when i could barely keep my eyes open. had one of those sleepless nights where my stomach was feeling unsettling, likely from the food at dinner. so overkilled with taekwondo, i really didn’t feel like practicing myself even though everything in my body tells me i must. after following through regardless, i went straight home and passed out. i’m disappointed plans had to change and the streak was broken, but i just couldn’t stay awake

resolution series: [six] unimportant things

image

life isn’t made equal, but when it comes to time, everyone is given the same amount to work with everyday – no more, no less. since there’s a limit, one can only choose to include so much in their daily routine and screen out all the things that aren’t deemed worthwhile. but even after screening, we must then filter and sort out which of the commitments are priorities and require more attention. there is only that much time in a day to fit everything into my daily life. as it stands, my schedule is already far beyond packed. inevitably take a lot of responsibilities than the amount of time i can afford, too much for my own good cause i haven’t learned to say no. i try not to surround myself with all the drama queens and drama kings out there because i simply don’t have the time and energy to deal with them. drama can only lead to more stress than i can already handle. i need not to be involved in other unimportant business when i haven’t gotten complete control on my life. but until then, i will put my life, my problems, my wants and needs as top priority

day 505 – drained

image

feeling awfully drained and really needing a break. no doubt i knew there would come a time when my mind and body will not allow me to continue with the kind of schedule i run on. its been wearing down on me for over half a year and now my mind is ready to go on strike. i wake up everyday feeling crappy and even more so exhausted knowing the things i have to get through day after day. all i want to do is shut off the world and finish what i have to do. it’s christmas season and all i am too drained to even enjoy it. i try to hide all that stress and pretend everything is okay because i don’t want to put it upon anyone else but somehow it’s showing through my shell. i need a break, i know its not time yet, but i know it’s coming in a couple more weeks

day 417 – full day’s worth

image

occupied by a full day of taekwondo which started with an overloaded meeting and ended with another dinner. so many tasks at hand, so many news, so many changes, so many new ideas, so many things tasks left undone. there’s just too much thrown on my plate, i simply don’t have the time to fit all in my already crazy schedule nor the energy to carry the load. i wonder how long i will last before these tasks start spilling over my plate

day 320 – jelly belly

image

not what i wanted to see on the counter when i am trying to make a change. not much of a jelly bean fan but must admit this is pretty sweet. so many different flavours to choose from it has a legend and when mixed with the correct combinations, it can yield blueberry cupcake flavour

day 123 – what a day, glad that’s over

image

my marathon day included taekwondo, dodgeball playoffs, instructor seminar, and training twelve hours consecutive. just wasn’t my day, nothing really went my way since i never felt into my dodgeball games and my mind, arms and legs were super exhausted towards the end of the day to be any use for training. need to brush it aside and look forward
