day 2197 – matching limes

driving was made difficult today when i can’t even do the shoulder check motion. i saw two matching lime green vehicles on the road as i was heading to my chiropractor appointment. it’ll definitely be a rest day after suffering a whiplash. apparently i’m not suppose to workout while experiencing antibiotic side effects. it’ll be a write off and i’ll take the time to catch up and prepare to start my intermittent fasting again

day 1891 – jump squats

walking wasn’t easy the day after i went ham with jump squats at end of class conditioning. it got me good, so good that i didn’t really want to move today. my quads are tired and stiff from the twelve sets. i only managed to do a little sample size of active recovery and a whole lot of foam rolling. it helps that i had tutor lined up after work so i wouldn’t be tempted to do other sporting activities

day 1817 – furniture shopping

i lost track of how many times i pressed the snooze button, but i slept in until my poor body was ready to make any type of movement. my lazy day off was mostly spent with my parents shopping for both furniture and groceries. we came to a decision and laid down three and a half grand for a set of leather sofa. i really could have played another hockey game, but realistically i need to be a sloth so my legs could rest. it’s nice to be able to help my parents out; something i miss doing for my parents

day 1786 – thoracolumbar

not how i had planned out my thursday. i had to leave work early, miss bootcamp and skip softball to visit my chiropractor. only then had i found out i injured my thoracolumbar junction. i’m in so much pain i couldn’t rotate, bend or reach. i wanted to continue with my sports, but there was really no range for that. of course, i tried to tape my own back and needed to prove it can be done. i struggled behind the mirror for over an hour before putting it with proper tension. only then i realized the jammed part of the vertebrae had a softball sized bruise

day 1754 – movie marathon

i did absolutely nothing today except eat dumplings to go along with my movie marathon. i need days like this when i could sleep in with no alarm clock to wake me up at 6:05, no rush from work to games nor commitments. i even chose not to hit the gym because my body told me it needs the rest it deserves. this year the brand new phenomenon i’ve learnt is occasionally listening to my body instead of my always go go go response. it took me quite a while to grasp this concept

day 1743 – repose

i miss the gym, a lot, but i’m going to resist from going to the gym for at least two more days. i need the rest and my body needs to recover after such a crazy but fun-filled birthday week of festivities. when i step back into the gym, i want to be fresh and ready to begin my new program. let me relinquish the feeling of not being sore for forty more odd hours because once the grind starts, maybe i’ll only feel soreness. spent an evening catching up on my news feed and tvb drama

day 1723 – knee down

one knee down and only one working knee left to hobble on. i felt like a genius laying all out to make a beautiful play at handball, but my body isn’t feeling so genius after the adrenaline died down. it’s probably the right decision to skip out on dodgeball when i can’t fully weight bear on that leg. as much as i want to play, i shouldn’t take that risk. what i really need is my physicians but one is on vacation and the other is overtly busy. i’ll manage myself with some home remedies
