day 2440 – grocery shop

the day time was designated to do all the grocery shopping with my mom. we dressed and equipped ourselves with masks and gloved before heading out to both superstore and t&t. the lineup going in wasn’t too bad, but we had to load up on the necessities and stock up our fridge and freezers for more than a week. i didn’t expect tofu to be completely sold out at superstore. we carted out around more than two hundred dollars worth of groceries from each store. the whole journey took over three hours, so long i didn’t even bother eating lunch

day 1429 – cherry imports

img_20200204_1531172409260874753265877.jpgi’m happy but not surprised when i saw giant boxes in my kitchen. this is the time of the year when my dad orders ten pounds of cherries from coworker who owns a farm in okanagan. normally i would eat cherries as meal replacements, but it as big and sweet as other years since the peak season is delayed this year. it will get finished nonetheless and then he’ll order another batch

day 1175 – homeworking

img_20200204_2158148095144537240975814.jpgmy legs and back are not sore but very fatigued from yesterday’s activities, good thing i was kept busy at my desk all day. spent most of my day catching up and finishing all my assignments. i was under a little stress because there were several undone and it took me long enough to finish a thirty one page assignment. i better get working on that term project cause it’s going to take a lot more than that thirty one page assignment. also better get ready to stock up on coffee

day 934 – raiding ben

image

it’s so hard to get out of bed early on saturday mornings, especially when friday was a late night. it was a fun late night with a mixture of training, learning and chilling. spent saturday morning running errands and raiding the shelves of walmart because i need to ship bengay to hong kong. these tubes are on always high demands especially come peak of training season. with the amount i use, i admit it’s border line substance abuse

day 847 – secret stash

image

i think my mom’s addiction to avocado just got worse. i came home and my mom was eager to show me the four new packages of ripe and ready to eat avocado sitting on the counter. this is good news for me because i will never run out of avocados for my salad. feeling a little under the weather today, with my headache getting worse throughout the day on top of a sorry back from all that deadlifting yesterday. but toughed it out for yet another trip to the gym and also out to run some errands

day 842 – bulk pack

image

one huge stack almost complete and another stack on its way. i made it a priority to load up because i need my supplements like i need food. i am a little disappointed i didn’t get the flavour of my choice, but i simply didn’t want to wait another week to have it shipped. that being said, there’s a dozen of flavours to choose from so there’s a handful of secondary choices i wouldn’t mind adopting. this got me covered and should last me a while

day 777 – costco stock

image

looks like someone went a little crazy at costco the other day. i got home to see a stash of supplements and vitamins on the table as if costco was on a closing out sale. i guess my parents are getting ready for their hong kong trip and bringing back vitamins for grandparents and infinite relatives. i imagine these are high in demand in the east when other relatives are also putting in requests for some year after year

day 650 – liquidation shopping

image

went lunch hour shopping today and made some impulsive buys since  sportchek for downtown location was having a store wide liquidation sale. i do believe everything that i bought was deemed useful; stocking up on k tape is definitely a necessity in my case. good thing i stopped short of buying a pair of reebok shoes i thought was really cool wouldn’t have been a good investment because it would only serve one major purpose

day 617 – swept it

image
i know they just restocked but i literally swept their shelves clean of their snack bars. will be extremely hectic in the upcoming weeks; no time for real meals where everything is on the go, so loading up while supplies last. they will be of high demand while i go through this phase and i will have to adjust to them. at least these don’t taste like cardboard or else it would be really rough and i might starve to death. busy life doesn’t make any excuses for not eating or going for fast food, i still try to get my protein in

day 331 – cherry season

image

i would know when cherry season is in because this is how my fridge looks like during its peak season. this is what my dad stocks in the fridge after realizing how much i like cherries. these are the sweetest and freshest kelowna cherries from a private farm but not sure if i can eat them everyday for breakfast, lunch and dinner
