day 2104 – flex day

took a flex day in anticipation that i’d be exhausted from a weekend of activities and i couldn’t be more correct. there was no way i would’ve been able to wake up at 6am for work. i slept in until 11am, and half the day was gone before i knew it. i really should be cleaning up, doing laundry and preparing food, but i mulled around and finished off my drama series. i went to flip and stayed until late despite my leg and ankle being crazily bruised up. good luck waking up for work tomorrow morning

day 2029 – sick day

instead of going into work, i stayed at home all day because i woke up with a headache, sore throat and the feeling that i’m fending off an oncoming cold. after calling in sick at 7am, i managed to sleep until past 1pm. sleeping fourteen hours is a really, really rare occasion since i usually get six or less. i logged a total of less than two thousand steps so my fitbit probably thought i was dying

day 1972 – stick and pucking

winter break and off days are the best time to sleep in and catch up on what i’ve lacked all year round. it’s also a good time to put in some extra practice at the stick and puck sessions i wouldn’t otherwise have been able to make. getting a free pass to christmas eve afternoon stick and puck session to work on some shots, pivots and stick handling sounded like a good choice

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 1805 – home alert

a much delayed sick day and stayed day home to do nothing. even after sleeping in until ten in the morning, i still felt really crappy. not only has my head been hurting constantly for weeks, i could feel my blood pressure is at a low and couldn’t get my head or body to function. knowing so, i had to deliberately feed myself some salt. although i didn’t go into work, i was still checking my work email hourly. not being able to make it out to hockey game isn’t so bad, but it’s alarming when i felt indifferent missing it

day 1775 – maple roll

having one of my favourite speciality roll, the maple roll, with my parents. the maple roll has a new look with the pink bonito flakes. my body is way overloaded with recent amount of sports and games and what a rare moment it is to hold myself back from workouts and games. i stayed home to catch up on all chores and tasks that were lagging behind like fixing my taekwondo bag after delaying for several months. my goal setting also needed some amendments to align with what i choose as priorities

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
