Day 56 & 57 and 58!
Today’s entry required an exclamation mark because I haven’t been writing for the last 2 days! Not slacking, still did my 10km on Thursday then lunch time Bar Method both days. I am having trouble sleeping properly lately, and that’s been the issue with delayed posts. I am exhausted physically and mentally but there is no switch button to thoughts.
Things will calm down eventually, or I’ll adapt to the tempo. You need to push your limits to learn about yourself!

Day 55
6am Bar Method. Oh my morning was funny today. I had dinner around 5.30pm last night, so I was feeling pretty hungry going to bed but decided not to open the fridge door for a midnight snack. Anyway, I was dreaming about this noodle box, was holding it in my hands and was just about to have a bite then my alarm went off! I was like “Oh common!” I was going to be so satisfied if I was able to have a bite of those noodles before I wake up! :)
Anyway, I fulfilled my dream during lunch time. You have to fulfill your dreams!

Day 53 & 54
Since I have been a slacker (go ahead, tell it to my face), it’s going to be a long one tonite. My sincere apologies. Monday morning started with a 6am Bar Method and today is ending with a lovely moonlight run after work with Vodka.
By the way, I feel like more of you started running recently. So happy and proud of all of you who are going out and choosing the be active and playful. And to be honest, spring running is so peaceful.

Day 52
Sundays are for recovering. And no Sunday can be without mimosas. The concept of “work hard, play harder” is feeling more like “work hard, play harder, try to function the next day” I feel like the second half of my 20s is so much harder than the first half. But still we all need to remind ourselves how important to balance work and life ratio.
Most successful individuals pursue out-of-work interests just as vigorously as they do their work.

Day 50 & 51
Combining 2 nights into one once more. Life and work have been go go go lately but hey no excuses to miss a beat. Friday, lunch time Bar Method, today 4 miles run with Lilo + rollerblading in the sun with Vodka. Lots to write about today. I have been inspired by a lot of things recently. One of my good friend (Hi Kristy!) is taking a big step forward for a better world; a better world for animals who are neglected, abused and abandoned. I am so happy and so proud of her, I wish her actions will inspire many more.

Day 49
I am catching up with all the resting I have been doing. 6am 5 miles speedwork with Vodka followed by lunch time Bar Method. My quads were just solid during the class. Lots of stretching before bed tonite.
It’s been a long day but it ended with couple of glasses of wine with good dear friends. So lucky to have such good company.

Day 48
6am Bar Method. Up up up we go. My arms are just burning without me even moving them…poor turkey arms.
I am going to keep this one short. I just wanted to point out that I feel ripples of positive change around me. I see more and more people doing something for the causes their care about, volunteering, protesting, supporting… Doing something rather than watching the world go by. Hats off to you for taking action my friends.

Day 47
Lunch time Bar Method. Back in business. Not sure about you guys, but I miss my summer photos. The trails, the ocean side, color in general. These last couple of days I am finding it hard to capture anything colorful in my day. Where are the cherry blossoms and when can I start proper trail running again!? I honestly really miss the forest. I have a long run to do this weekend, might be a bit challenging to hit the trails just yet.

Day 45 & 46
Double featuring today once more. I haven’t been active for the last couple of days, taking it easy and seems like I slacked on my writing as well. I watched a really interesting talk the other day and the ideas are definitely worth sharing with the world. The talk is about the way people think about charities and how non profit sector is not able to keep up with the profit sector. The non profit sector on its own is a market for love, compassion and affection. And how can you monetize that?

Day 44
Rollerblading with the girls. The pain on my leg is still there… I can’t find where it’s coming from but it makes me limp occasionally. So taking it easy, let’s see resting a bit makes a difference. I really don’t like injuries. Because I always go thru “5 stages of grief” over injuries. Deny, then get angry, then negotiate, fall into depression and finally accept the reality. So I am going to break the first step of denying by acknowledging the pain.
