Starting Insanity Month 2

After taking a small break from Insanity after the recovery week, it was time to go back. My knee is not bothering me anymore, it feels a lot better, and all it took was one stretch video. Well, that and resting for the rest of the weekend. It was a small surprise to see that … Continue reading Starting Insanity Month 2

I need a break after Recovery Week

Recovery week it over! In the begging I was happy to have a break from the intense workout but by Thursday I wanted it to be over. It started to get boring because it’s the same video every day. By the fourth day of doing the same thing, I was sick of it, but I … Continue reading I need a break after Recovery Week

Epilepsy and Osteoporosis

This is for my fellow epilepsy warriors, just in case you didn’t know, like me, People with epilepsy are at higher risk than other people for developing osteoporosis and fractures. The Epilepsy Foundation also mentions that women have a higher risk of developing osteoporosis (and therefore broken bones) than men and people on multiple antiseizure … Continue reading Epilepsy and Osteoporosis

Finished Insanity: Month 1!

Guess what I did today. I finished month one of Insanity! Honestly, I can’t even describe how I feel; I don’t really know. It’s a mix of proud, surprised, motivated, happy and tired. I’m very tired but I think that’s understandable, it’s been four very tough weeks. I haven’t skipped one day and some days … Continue reading Finished Insanity: Month 1!

One more week DONE!

We do amazing things when we’re motivated, like yesterday morning for instance, I didn’t hesitate to get out of bed when I heard my alarm. I went straight into my workout. I didn’t have all day to do it like I usually do so I had to hurry and I really couldn’t, or didn’t want … Continue reading One more week DONE!

Working hard for what I want

I’ve got some good news, I got a job! I was worried it might take a long time because I thought I would be competing with a lot of other people. I sent many resumes but heard back from one of them for an interview pretty quickly and I got it! I’m nervous about it, … Continue reading Working hard for what I want

Seizure First Aid Ready

I just found the best online certification that I want all my family and friends to get, just in case. This free, online certificate is a 30 minute course that “educates the public on the Epilepsy Foundation’s basic procedures for responding to someone having a seizure.” If you complete the course you receive a certificate … Continue reading Seizure First Aid Ready

I finished week one, only seven to go

This was a difficult week to start doing a new workout program, especially one like Insanity. Aside from looking for jobs and taking two online certifications, we were taking care of three dogs my parents found abandoned in the park. We were able to find homes for two of them but we still have one … Continue reading I finished week one, only seven to go

Who would have thought nine years ago I’d be doing this today?

I made up my mind yesterday, I was going to continue doing the Insanity workout program today. I even did the fit test yesterday so I was ready to start and I was even going to be able to do it earlier that usual. Everything seemed to be in place, except the power went out … Continue reading Who would have thought nine years ago I’d be doing this today?

I’m ready to do this again

Since I finished Insanity Max (I love saying that) on Saturday, I had to choose the next program I was going to do. I was caught between Let’s get up and Insanity. They are both by the same coach, Shaun T but they are very different. I had already done Insanity like 10 years ago. … Continue reading I’m ready to do this again
