day 1564 – warehouse sale

happily shopping for shoes to reward myself for a job well done. went shoe frenzy and tried on many to find the one that i couldn’t go wrong with. in the past i’ve neglected my own well-being and overlooked many of my desires because i was made to not feel important. i learn to grow, i learn to be stronger, and more importantly i learn to live to be treated the way it should be. over the next little while i will change up my priorities to be sure i put myself as one

it’s boot season to keep my feet dry. staying warm is something i don’t do a good job in because i am always cold. my wardrobe has enough summer clothes but i need more winter clothing. it’s a great reason to go shopping or cyber shopping

day 1111 – my nano

image

the arrival of my order with my new nano got me super excited. my shoe racks are getting very full and soon i will need an expansion, but i felt like it was the right time to treat myself to another pair of crossfit training shoes. i can never get tired of shopping for sports stuff, and i can never have too much training gear. i am feeling amped up and ready to take these into the gym and do more aggressive lifts

day 1065 – second closet

image

my car trunk has assumed the role of my second closet. not only do i spend a lot of time on the road running from one event to the next, but my gear and equipment has clearly outgrown the allowable space i have in my room. currently, five pairs of shoes, a pair of skates, tennis rackets, pvc pipe and hoodies are some of the things that reside in the back of my car. sooner or later i maybe be looking for an extension to a third closet

day 977 – woodburn

image

stopped by woodburn for a quick shopping spree before heading back north. shopping can be a dangerous thing for my poor wallet. i went ahead and bought yet another pair of nike frees to add to my collection. it was a very enjoyable and fulfilling trip here in portland; i found myself preserving for what i wanted to accomplish. i can’t wait to get through that six hour drive and be back in vancity

day 967 – reebok crossfitters

image

so excited my new reebok crossfits arrived in the mail today. i tried them on immediately after getting home and they fit and feel amazing on my feet. i have a strong feeling i am going to fall in love with this once i get this into the gym. this is the first reebok shoes i bought since my early 2000s basketball shoes. now i can fully retire my first generation free run that served me so well day in day out. impulsive purchases got the better of me as with many other occasions; i definitely need to hold back for a while

resolution series: [two] decisions

image

decision making is a skill that humans slowly develop over time, but one may not notice it is not an innate skill. every child starts off with their parents doing the decision making because we are too young to make sensible choices. i have always had my parents make decisions for me no matter how big or small and that carried through to up and including university. i started later than most people and have developed too much reliance on my parents and others which may be the cause of my often indecisiveness. all i ever did was go with the flow and following the the instructions they give. but there comes a time when they have to slowly let go and let me make more of the decisions. sometimes the choices i make will be good and sometimes not so good, but its all a part of growing up and a learning curve that i must make. sure enough my parents will always be in the background giving me logical advice to consider because they’ve been through something i haven’t yet. sometimes it’s as simple as choosing the shoe i want to wear, which may seem harder than it really is. but i am slowly getting the hang of it by taking charge of my choices and paving for the road i want to travel
