day 2458 – bake cookies

felt quite lethargic from the moment i woke up this morning. i cut my lifting session short because i was running really low on gas. i only completed my cleans and front squat complex plus the row and good morning superset. i felt super bored in the afternoon so popped the cookie dough made by my friend. i shared the freshly baked white chocolate walnut cookies with my parents and ate the remaining three

day 2391 – shopping with mom

my extended long weekend is reserved to hangout with mom. it’s been far too long since the two of us had any extended quality time together. she wanted to go shopping so we went for a brunch before queensborough outlet. i took her to cora’s, shared a smoked salmon benedict and still couldn’t manage to finish. it was a good day off just being out with my mom. unfortunately my foot started hurting from the heavy tape job done by physio

day 2360 – deadlift knowledge

morning gym session to get my leg day in as well as help a friend out with hers. having a gym partner can be motivating and fun at the same time. i certainly did not mind teaching and sharing my fitness knowledge with whose who are eager and willing to learn. we hit it hard with the squats, deadlifts and leg press before moving onto back exercises and then finished with some superset core exercises. i have plenty of fitness goals i want to hit this year, and at the same time i hope i can also help her reach hers

day 2322 – department lunch

the first christmas meal of the season is a combined department lunch with human resources, finance and admin. it was a group of twelve dining at a hotel restaurant called 75 west. nothing on the menu really appealed to me. the ribs i ordered were alright. i had half the rack plus the caesar salad and shared the other half, fries and slaw

day 2203 – shaved ice

being done with the never ending bottle of antibiotics is something to celebrate for. so i celebrated no more dealing with side effects by training a little more than the past days. although my neck and back from the whiplash is still noticeable, i still insisted on building my back tucks back onto the floor without a spot. after training, the crew had the urge to get shaved ice so i got a chance to try snowy village for the first time. this is bad for my eating plan, but at least i shared it with two others

day 2176 – uneaten lunches

uneaten lunches piling up because this week has been a little busy. my monday lunch is still uneaten in the office fridge because of onboarding lunch, first aid lunch meetings. both lunch boxes had things i wanted to eat so i shared the lunches with coworker and skipped the overlaps. if i start getting a stomachache in the afternoon, i’ll definitely blame the old leftover lunch

day 2052 – dessert delicacy

dinner, dessert and movie night with the group of girls to celebrate two march birthdays. trying out the new cheesecake and chocolate mousse cake from aberdeen’s spirtea. it’s one of those things that you can’t have all of so to share both the calories and the cost. we had sushi, assorted roasted vegetables and juke fried chicken while streaming bumblebee. it’s always good to catch up with the group now that some of them left the company

organized a late lunar new year lunch for the asians in the office. what was suppose to be a foursome expanded to a group of eleven. the three of us girls shared a salad, sashimi and two rolls. it’s good to have variety otherwise i’d only be limited to eating sashimi and a roll. didn’t feel like going back to work after eating. it. i hope the snow doesn’t stick so i can drive to delta for my game later in the evening

day 1910 – crepe cake

girls night out at the gym before crashing a home for movie. we caught up a little while watching deadpool 2. we filled ourselves with homemade poke bowl ingredients before the main event which is all about the dessert delicacies. the earl grey and matcha flavoured crepe cakes plus coloured pearl bubble tea. it was good, but i would have to keep these decadence to a minimal for the meantime. it’s also quite a pricey enjoyment

day 1865 – cafe de l’orangerie

trying out a new restaurant i found tucked at the corner of hudson. it’s a little neat japanese runned cafe serving fusion, dessert, coffee and some alcoholics. i had a shared tuna gomae to go with my chicken tomato spaghetti. portions were quite big and as usual i couldn’t finish my meal and packed it to go. eating lots before i start my cut; i’ll cherish it while i can
