day 1811 – cora farewell

one of the leads is unfortunately leaving us for another opportunity. the design team went out for a farewell breakfast at cora’s before work. i had so much work to do in order to prepare for my lunch and learn presentation. i hadn’t got a chance to drink, eat, go to the washroom, check emails or talk to anyone. i was nervous leading up the presentation for i was about to stand in front of half the company, some of which are my bosses, to share my team’s knowledge. after a successful presentation, lunch and two more meetings, i finally sat down at my desk to eighteen unread emails. it’s been a whirlwind kind of day, but there’s many good things to take away from it

day 1799 – blueberry banana

my investment in a portable blender is slowly paying its bills. going for the luxurious two flavoured smoothie of blueberry banana instead of my go-to plain banana option. it was so tasty i drank it really fast, so fast that i hadn’t realized i left out my recovery. i’ve been feeling a bloat which isn’t sitting too well in my stomach; hopefully some digestive enzymes will solve the problem

day 1791 – fruitie smoothie

making an effort to growing my office fruit garden and conscious effort of eating more fruits in general. though it’s missing one of my staples, i gathered some of my favourite including mangoes, peaches and bananas. i’ve been pretty adamant in making some semi meal replacement smoothies with my portable blender. can’t wait until it’s cherry season, but sad this year i’ve lost my sources from friend’s kelowna farm

day 1653 – juicingĀ 

blending my banana kiwi almond milk smoothie at my desk. just the sound of it already makes me feel like i’m having something ultra healthy, which i won’t deny. the main reason i’m having this instead of my normal grapes is so i can have some solids and some liquids in my body. funny when people were looking around searching for the sounds that my blender was making

day 1650 – free boosters

free booster juice for the design team courtesy of manager who won the super bowl trivia. i’ll gladly take the strawberry storm smoothie over my lunch because i had a major toothache from the mini surgery. it hurt so much to eat i don’t even have much of an appetite anyways. i was told i looked sick and i certainly felt unwell since it kept me up all night. if i can’t catch some sleep again, i might have to pop some tylenols or go back to my dentist. i’m not a happy camper at the moment

day 1483 – mini blender


this mini blender better be as good as it looks because it was quite expensive after adding up shipping and import charges. that’s the problem when ordering merchandise from asia. because my hand still won’t open or close entirely, it presented challenges at the gym. it was so painful trying to grip barbells and weights that i just wanted to leave the gym. instead of doing my normal stuff, i had to refrain from anything that involved gripping

day 1020 – life on the edge

we both carry a busy and fast paced lifestyle. during our downtime, we sit back sipping on our smoothies and taking our usual walks, making the most out of the time we have together. i am feeling exhausted after getting back into town, but i am still committed to an evening of training followed by pineapple league. another scary moment at dodgeball as i was down for second time within a month. head shots have been a problem; only a few days ago did i mention i felt like i was over my concussion. i feel terrible everyone has to worry about me and i hate to see mo so concerned
