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 … Continue reading Exercise bike cardio
I did it! Today, after eight weeks, I finished Focus T25: Gamma! I felt great after finishing Aphasia and Beta Phase the first time but I this one feels different.

Last week, after I got the Covid-19 vaccine on Thursday, I didn’t work out that day or the next. The CDC’s instructions were to take it easy after getting the vaccine. I did that the first time and I didn’t have any side effects except for some pain in the upper left arm, where I … Continue reading New rowing machine

For a short spring break, I went away with my parents to the beach for the weekend, since it was a long weekend. I didn’t know what to expect because the beach is always very crowded during Easter weekend but I thought maybe this year would be different because of COVID. It was very crowded … Continue reading Spring break 2021
On Monday I started part two of Focus T25 Gamma. In my mind I was thinking that it would be more difficult right from the beginning just because it’s the second part.

After five weeks, I finished part 1, Pure Gamma, of Focus T25 Gamma! The calendar is only four weeks but I couldn’t finish the fourth week on my first try because I got my COVID-19 vaccine that week.

Last week, after getting the vaccine, I thought I would be able to finish week 4 of my workout routine. This is the first time, since I started doing these videos that I haven't completed a whole week of videos but it wasn't because I didn't want to, my arm hurt when I moved it. … Continue reading Started week four again
Great news, I got my Covid19 vaccine today! I was so nervous before I got it because of those rumors going around that the needle is big but that’s not true.

Out of nowhere, I’m already on week three of Focus T25 Gamma. Actually, I’m more that halfway done with week three. This sort of seems a little unbelievable because Gamma Phase is not easy but the great part is that there are no double days. Friday is just one regular video just like the rest … Continue reading Week three of Gamma Phase
Yesterday I get a bombshell dropped on me, the pharmaceutical company that has been providing me my epilepsy medicine for over four years won’t cover my most expensive medicine anymore.

Just like the previous Focus T25 videos, you do the different videos five times a week according to the calendar provided with the program, Saturday is rest day and you stretch on Sunday. I wasn’t able to do all the videos … Continue reading First week of Focus T25 Gamma
