02ADB: Saturday Squeeze

Saturday Sinigang

Metro Manila Community Quarantine - Day 707

As much as the weekend (or whenever your rest days fall) is really the best time to rest and recover, sometimes I can't help but feel a little frustrated when I don't feel that I was "productive". And being productive during the weekend isn't about working on your rest days but more along the lines of making sure to make the most of the time. 

We had a slower start to the day since we had stayed up late playing board games online with friends. So I intentionally wanted to sleep in and that plan sort of worked out, but it also didn't. I had still gotten up past 10am to use the bathroom despite having gone to bed around 5am, and it took me a while before I could go back to sleep. And of course, that meant I eventually got up much later than I had envisioned, and that just changed the tone of the day. 

Since we had a scheduled game for the day, we still need to eat brunch by a certain point, which meant I had to work out even earlier. But since I had gotten up past  02:00pm, I had almost considered mapping out a workout after the game instead, but eventually changed my mind when I pulled up a 20-minute HIIT video to follow instead. And I guess it was a good idea since we ended up gaming until around 11pm, which didn't leave me enough time for another yoga flow or anything. 

Apart from watching another episode of Coffee Prince, the main highlight of the day was our Night's Black Agents game. We had a proper full session today to make up for our last abbreviated session that had to end early because of an O Bar night. 

And then, that was sort of it. I had managed to squeeze in my daily Elevate and Duolingo tasks and finished a few comics and that was it. I'm not sure what else I was expecting to have gotten done but it still feels like we could have done more somehow? It's a little ridiculous, but that's sort of what crossed my mind by the end of the day. 

Tomorrow will follow a similar schedule with our Pendragon game as the big focus. It won't run as long given it's a Sunday and there are schedule constraints for some of the players, so we'll see how that will play out.
