Every day when I exercise I begin by doing some kind of cardio exercise, like I used to do when I went to the gym. Right now I like to use the stationary bike but it doesn’t really matter what kind of cardiovascular exercise to do, as long as you do at least 150 minutes of moderate or 75 minutes of vigorous intensity spread out over the week.
I spend at least half an hour on the bicycle with intervals of different intensity as a warm up. The intensity matters on the songs I listen to, if the beat of the song is faster, I go faster and the more I like the song the better. Listening to music not only helps me with the speed but it also makes it more fun.

After doing this today, I started a new routine and it was very different than the videos I was doing. Those videos were 25 minutes long, today’s routine took me an hour to finish. Not every routine is supposed to be an hour long, they’re all different but I think it will take less time as I get used to it.
This week is going to be interesting trying to learn each of these routines on my own, not having someone tell me what to do or seeing how to do it but I’ll figure out how to do it.

I’m an aspiring writer still looking for exactly what I want to write about, with a lot of creativity, imagination and desire to write.
I studied Writing and Rhetoric at Syracuse University where I explored many different sides of writing through my classes and extracurricular activities in order to narrow my search for an identity as a writer.
I have written for Citrus TV Noticias and La Voz magazine, both of which gave me the chance to explore different mediums in which to write in. Through Citrus TV Noticias I also gained experience in translating from English to Spanish and vice versa, which is also something that I would be interested in working on since I am fluent in both of these languages. I was also an intern at Syracuse University Press where I got hands on experience in what goes into actually editing and publishing a book.
Through out the last four years I have faced a lot of challenges, which helped chape the person I am today. After being in a tragic car accident, being in comma, having a Traumatic Brain Injury, and being in therapy for over a year, I am a new me, willing to face challenges and knowing how to deal with them. I want to write about my accident and life after it to help others, show them it can be done and help in any way I can.
