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 of them. I named her Penny, which is going to make giving her to whoever adopts her more difficult.
But that was all nothing compared to these workouts. It’s been one week and I’m so tired but already feel the changes. My legs, arm and even abs hurt but when it comes to working out, that means it’s working.
I finished the first week this morning and I had to take so many breaks, especially at the end of the video and this was the one I did on Tuesday. It was not that I wasn’t able to do it, I was just tired from the rest of the week so if I wanted to finish I had to take breaks.
In the end I was happy because I was done for the day, I have my rest day tomorrow and because I completed the first week! If I finished the first week, I can finish the rest; deciding to start is the most difficult part. I already did that and saw that I can do it, now I just need to continue and that’s not that difficult.

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.
