day 2138 – flight home

after eighteen days surviving four countries and nine hundred and sixty seven photos taken, i’m really glad to be taking my final flight home. waiting for my seven hour flight to head back to vancity where my parents, friends and fun awaits. having long vacations like this makes me homesick. i can’t wait to see my family, friends and teammates, and do my everyday things like flip, hockey, gym and chill. i’m super exhausted from dealing with the selfishness and glad to be spending time with those that i’d call friends

day 2097 – egg whites

felt like giving myself one day break off my normal hardboiled eggs this monday morning. i’ve always wondered how these starbucks egg whites taste like so this was my chance. it’s tastefully cheesy and also way too many calories than i should have. that satisfied my curiosity but i will go back to my two hardboiled eggs next morning. i also had a mango dragonfruit to go along with it

day 2090 – vita galore

i haven’t drank vita lemon tea for a really long time, until i downed four boxes over this weekend. still reminiscing the team trip and wished i didn’t didn’t have to go home so soon. waking up monday morning after a long weekend is usually one of the most difficult thing to do. i don’t want to go back to work and the life of my normal daily routines. i can only look forward to the next day off i have

day 1993 – parents los cabos

i rushed from flipping to pick up my parents from the airport after their eight day travel to the sunny los cabos. it so happened to be my dad’s birthday, but they didn’t really feel like eating out when they returned, i guess there was too much of that in mexico. it sounded like they had a relaxing time escaping the cold weather of vancity. i’m glad they live life to its fullest and travel as often as they like. though i lose some freedom, i do restore the regular my eating routine

day 1911 – dodgeball night

humpdays after work, as usual, consists of flipping and kicking, then rushing off to dodge some balls with our balls your face. the first weeks of the season has been focusing on the team chemistry since there’s new faces on the team. we’ll get through the kinks in the meat of the season and get it playoff ready. part of the fun of vdl isn’t so much about dodgeball balls, but seeing the familiar faces

day 1905 – backlogged

resuming daily work activities after three consecutive days locked away for training wasn’t exactly a gentle ease. not only do i have to tend to the excessive amount of emails, many project requests, prepare for conference call, but also had to look after the dishes. i uploaded one batch first thing in the morning, ran another load right away and to my dismay, there’s still people leaving dirty dishes in the sink while the dishwasher is perfectly empty. i spent pretty much all day catching up and didn’t even get around to doing any project work

day 1770 – bootcamp


the office bootcamp is underway and the first session the pace was too slow. i guess the trainer wanted to see where the general fitness was at since we have quite a mixed bag. everything was pretty standard body weight exercise; too much jumping jacks for one day. although it was slow, i did break a sweat simply because it was quite warm being under the sun. i wanted to go to gym afterwards but thought about it twice since i had penta in the evening. i hope the pace and intensity of these bootcamp picks up in the next eleven weeks. hopefully this kickstarts and stabilizes my own fitness routine again
