Today’s New Year’s celebration is going to be a little different than it has been for the last 9 or 10 years. Every year I go with my family to the beach and celebrate the new year at the beach house in the other side of Puerto Rico. This year however,we can’t celebrate together, so … Continue reading Happy New Year 2021!
Last week I was excited for our morning walks every day, except Saturday because it is my rest day so I didn’t go. I was afraid I wouldn’t want to go today either because once you stop it’s harder to start again. The key is not to think about it very much, I just got … Continue reading Three miles and a new gym
This Saturday has been very unlike the rest of my most recent Saturdays. But let go back earlier this week. On Thursday, after work, I stayed behind with my mom to exercise with another of our coworkers. We were each doing our own thing, I was running with music when I got a notification that … Continue reading Second Virtual 5k
What a great day! Because today is my mother’s birthday, we went to the beach. It wasn’t just any beach, she wanted to come to La Parguera, where we rented a boat and went to a place like this and this We thought there wouldn’t be people at the beach since it’s a week day … Continue reading Birthday weekend at the beach
Today was a great day, a Saturday that did not involve going to the supermarket. Instead, we went to the beach! Once again, the governor opened the beaches after being closed for about two months because of the coronavirus. I’m all for taking the necessary precautions to stop the spread of the virus but I … Continue reading Another day at the beach!
I have been waiting for this for months, I was afraid it wouldn’t be possible this summer but the day finally came. When I remembered we were going to the beach today, I didn’t think twice about getting out of bed. It was a beautiful day, perfect for going to the beach. I know what … Continue reading First day at the beach after quarantine
I never liked morning walks or mornings when I was young, but as I got older and things changed in my life I now like doing things like walking and exercising in the morning. So when my parents wanted me to go on a walk with them to Old San Juan I said yes. They … Continue reading Who doesn’t like a morning walk?
Yesterday I went to see my neurologist but it was just a routine appointment. Like always he was happy to hear that nothing has happened, no seizures. I did have to talk to him about an incident I had last night with my pills. I keep all ten of them in a weekly pill container … Continue reading Medications and hot weather
As I said last time, I was spending this weekend at the beach. I had been waiting for this for months and after patiently waiting I finally got the chance to go to the beach, not one, but two days. On the first day, (you can read about it on Back at the beach) we rented a … Continue reading My long weekend at the beach
I'm exhausted tonight, but it's okay because it was a great day. Today being this tired means I had a great time. I got the chance to get away and enjoy this long weekend away from San Juan at my family's beach house. It has been so long since I have been to the beach … Continue reading Back at the beach
After a pretty good long weekend, I was able to wake up half an hour earlier this morning and workout again before going to work. I surprised myself by not only waking up, but actually doing more than my previous 15 minutes, which was also my goal for today. This morning I worked out for … Continue reading That short morning workout
This week, being the week before Easter, I thought I would be able to rest and relax. I was hoping to go to the beach, the movies and maybe even have a lazy day just staying home all day. The week didn't turn out this way. Begging with having to go get blood drawn on … Continue reading Easter break
I'll begin this post by sharing something I wrote last week but forgot to post. Yesterday I got on a plane again, this time coming to Boston to spend Christmas with Jose's sisters. This is a new experience because I don't think I have ever spent Christmas away from home but it will still be … Continue reading Christmas in Boston
What a great weekend! We stayed at an Airbnb which was better than a hotel; it was a huge house at walking distance to the beach. Because it was a beach house, it had 4 one-person kayaks, and at first I was doubting going on one because I didn't know if I would be able … Continue reading Something new every weekend, this weekend- Kayaking
Yesterday was a long day for me, and now I'm paying for that. I started the day at the gym at 8 am, that was the gym without air conditioner in the summer, near desert heat we're living with in Puerto Rico right now. (The power was out.) After the gym I came home, changed … Continue reading This morning I woke up feeling like I had a hangover
