day 1888 – big leap

front tucks made vast improvements with my front tucks tonight. stayed after class for another two hours drilling them and getting them on footage. not only was it my first day landing them on red, i also moved to blue and landed them too. it was looking so good i was asked to take it to the floor, but i opted not to because i was nursing so many injuries. never have i thought that i would land a front tuck on the floor before a back tuck. i do regret not taking up that offer, but i’m aiming to land them this week

day 1841 – small gestures

i do a very thankless job where i’m always expected to do things right. it’s one that does all the work in the back end and allows others to shine. usually i don’t get called out unless something isn’t done perfectly or when something goes wrong. this is one of the rare times i do get noticed on a personal level. this card i received on my desk definitely put a smile on my face. the gift is a small gesture, but one that makes me believe i do my best to service others

day 1825 – family doctor

this is a rather big deal when i make it an exception and visit my family doctor. after many months of ghosting her, even she was surprised to see me. she asked a bunch of questions, did some tests and wrote two referral notes and off i went. i took a day off work to run around from clinic to clinic; these tests and xrays are so time consuming. hopefully the results turn out negative. it’s a day off away from the office but not really – an influx of emails and a presentation to prepare for kept me busy

day 1738 – birthday game

squirtle squad planned a birthday celly at boston pizza after playing a game of hockey. its really funny the team went above and beyond and used their creativity to customize my squirtle ice cream cake. this is a supportive bunch that’s helped me in my game of hockey, only wanting to make me get better while having fun. this is my second full game playing at defense and i think i’m already getting more comfortable than the first. i’ll watch the game footage when it becomes available and try to pick up things i can do differently to improve my backend game. i think i made the cut for a spot on defense

day 1737 – birthday week

second of my birthday celebration comes with my hamber circle. i don’t usually have birthday parties or any dramatic birthday celebrations, but this one is a bigger one for me. dining at zakkushi and. i’m caught off guard when all of the sudden the lights shut off and music started playing. all the attention turned to me when the waiter brings out a small cake with candle and sparklers. i’m blessed to have grown up with this group. i hope these never change between us no matter how old we grow

day 1655 Рleg heavy 

my compound movements felt surprisingly good even after a few off days that went awry. a few days away and trainers there came to ask where i’ve been. squatted the same weight as last time but with more ease, and even upped the deadlift cause i felt up to it. maybe lifting across from my kinesiologist helped pump me up and made sure i follow through. i’m going for something new in my routine. it’s time i switch things up because i have different wants and need to zone in to the specifics

day 1560 Рscaled 

on my desk sits a scaled model that my dear coworkers said made them think of me. got a good laugh when coworker gave my model an upgraded splint, one that is tailored to document my hand healing progress. little things and acts of surprises like this makes my day go by smoother. there’ll be some that stick by to help during times of hardship; there’ll be those that won’t. that’s when i learn what kind of person they are what who truly cares
