day 2497 – versa lite

my fitbit replacement arrived in the mail in the form of versa lite. originally considered selling it and buying one i liked a little more, but turns out i quite like it. i immediately got on the computer and ordered a few replacement bands and some tempered glass screen protector. the versa lite has a lot more options and customization than what the fitbit charge offered

day 2337 – shopping damage

boxing day made some damage to my wallet. i went all out this year after saying there’s nothing i needed to buy. i bought a computer monitor from bestbuy, a cardigan from lululemon, jackets from bench, shirts and shoes from reebok and some board games from wallet. all of which were discounted, but still adds up to a pretty significant number. i sure hope my paycheck covers for this sudden splurge. i also did a declutter of my wardrobe to make room for my new clothes and justify that i need to update some things

day 2290 – google toy

the first of five package to arrive is my newest google toy. during my recovery phase, i’ve got nothing better to do but to invest in online shopping. i’ve already missed my original targeted date in returning. the recovery progress is slowed and sometimes nonexistent. i’ve received four or five different diagnosis without a verdict. i can’t lie, but i’ve started to lose hope that even after resuming my activities, i will not do things nearly as good. part of me wonders if my ride is over and i’ll have to give up certain things that i really like

day 2066 – shipping order

my latest order came in, but too bad the sizing chart wasn’t very accurate. what was meant to fit up to five foot five ended up being too short for me. my search continues because my unproportionally long legs isn’t easy to shop for. maybe it’s hinting that i need to keep my spendings tab in check because i tend to buy duplicates of things that i like but don’t necessarily need

day 2015 – romaleos

img_20200124_151623494313596916196806.jpg

feeling so excited that my neon nike romaleos 3 was delivered to my doorstep. i’ve never olympic lifted with olympic lifting specific shoes, but i’ve only heard good things about how well it allows you to get under the bar. i notice it’s difficult for me to pull the bar over me which is why i don’t punch the bar aggressively. this should put me into a better position when catching the snatch at the bottom. i can’t wait to try them on the platform and lift bigger weights over my head

day 1975 – paypower

img_20200130_2039297709034684495307270.jpgusing the mastercard paypower i got from star performer spin the wheel to help out my extensive hobby of online shopping. even though i didn’t physically join the boxing day mall crowds, i bought a few things and spent quite a bit of money. some were impulsive buys but i needed more tech savvy things. i must contain myself after the holiday season is over and until i can recover for the damage of all these sales

day 1961 – fishy cravings

img_20200130_2039215259954262312414184.jpgit hasn’t been long since i had some. but the fish craving is pretty strong once again since i didn’t get a fair share of sashimi during my vacation. going without sushi for more than week is rare, but it’s hard to be picky when on vacation. also, i was told not to trust the salmon within many places in asia. the best fishes are on the west coast, so it only makes sense i take full advantage of them and abuse my rights

day 1788 – stranger things

img_20200130_21205677140746512928020.jpgi’ve failed to do any of my heavy lifts for a while now because i’ve been so occupied with many things from all directions. to be honest, i think the number one cause that’s keeping me away is being overworked at work. i’m constantly stressed and sleep deprived, i think more than half a year without vacation makes me more weary than i know it. there’s not much of a work life balance and that needs to change. i’m going back to the drawing board to map out what needs to be done to get myself back into equilibrium – that means going back into the gym doing things i love

day 1742 – bundled goods

img_20200130_2212504314931104911091450.jpgthis is a product of online shopping done last week. the bundle comes from reebok and includes a convertible duffel, hoodie and socks. i haven’t splurged on myself for a long time so i’ll consider it a birthday present that i deserved. i love my sports and can never get enough of looking at athletic gear. initial glance, i like my two-in-one duffel and styling hoodie but the socks seem a little on the thin side

day 1709 – fancy shoes

img_20200130_2212356273806005994131565.jpggot home from dodgeball and two boxes sat beside my staircase. i was so excited to see my shoe order came in the mail as a result of last week’s shopping spree. bought both pairs with a really good deal and they turned out to fit well. one is very comfortable and the other is rather avant-garde. i don’t regret spending the money on these at all; in fact, i should have bought a few more. as much i love shopping and my neverending wishlist, i have to monitor my savings too
