I did it! I woke up at 6 a.m. this morning to workout and I loved it. I wasn’t working in the morning because I didn’t want to wake up so early but waking up a little bit earlier is better for now. I had forgotten how good exercising first thing in the morning feels. … Continue reading Started my morning workouts again
I’m proud of myself today. I thought maybe I wouldn’t be able to work out today because it was so hot, around 93 degrees Fahrenheit, but I did it! Just half an hour, with three fans pointed at me, the windows open, and drinking a lot of water. Yesterday I exercised in a room with … Continue reading Let’s try an early morning workout tomorrow
I know it’s technically not summer yet, but it really, feels like it right now in Puerto Rico. I feel like someone just turned the stove on in my house, at work, everywhere I go and not even air conditioning helps. I couldn’t sleep on Saturday night because of it, even with air conditioning and … Continue reading Working out in summer
On March 29, 2015 I decided to share the journey I had been on for three years. I was scared and a little insecure, but today, nine years later I’m proud to say I have lost some of that fear and insecurity. It’s still difficult putting myself out there and waiting to see if people … Continue reading Nine years later
This year I had two New Year’s resolutions. I have been doing my best to keep the first one which is writing more, but I hadn’t even started the second one, running again, for a number of reasons, including Covid. Now that that’s not an excuse anymore, I decided to stop wondering why I haven’t … Continue reading Working on my New Year’s resolution
Today, first thing in the morning, I went to the laboratory to get the Covid19 antigen test. I had already spent a week in my house, only leaving on Saturday for a walk at the beach. I had to get back to work, I felt fine and I couldn’t spend one more week in my … Continue reading Got a negative Covid test!
As of a few weeks ago I had to change the streaming service I used to workout. Now I’m using Apple Fitness instead Beach Body on Demand and the two are very different. Beach Body had a lot of different workout programs and Apple Fitness has hundreds of videos. I was already used to using … Continue reading Using Apple Fitness
I just finished the first part of the ChaLEAN Extreme program. This program includes four different four week resistance training calendars. The one I just finished is called Burn Phase It did take me longer than four weeks because I had Mycoplasma when I was starting the third week, but I jumped back in after … Continue reading ChaLEAN Extreme-Push Phase
I thought everything was perfect as long as I took my anti convulsive medications, didn’t drink alcohol and slept eight hours every night. I forgot that I shouldn’t gain weight, at least not too much. Gaining weight affects my medication levels; if they are too low it could lead to a seizure. I have only … Continue reading More workouts and no more snacking
This week I didn’t feel any symptoms of Mycoplasma so I decided it would be a good idea to start exercising again. I knew that after not doing anything for one week and just a few recovery videos last week, it wasn’t going to be easy to start again, and I was right. But I’m … Continue reading Feeling better and even exercising again!
I’m happy to say I found my new workout program very quickly; I only tried one two before deciding which one was right for me. I realized I liked the ChaLEAN Extreme program pretty quickly after I started it, even though I didn’t think I wanted to do resistance training, and I just finished my … Continue reading ChaLEAN Extreme- Week 1
After finishing my last workout program a week ago, my first attempt at a new program did not work. I was a little disappointed at first but quickly realized that I would much rather do something a little less intense before jumping into another program. That’s exactly what I did, I finished the week off … Continue reading Resistance training instead of cardio
After eight long weeks, I finished the PiYo/T25 Hybrid Program yesterday. It feels like that program was longer than two months instead of just eight weeks but I enjoyed doing those two very different routines together. At times they both felt just as difficult, even though they are very different. I this that’s what I … Continue reading Finished PiYo/T25 Hybrid Workout
