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
Keeping up with blogging, exercising, working and taking classes all at the same time has not been very easy so far. I was able to keep up with everything during my three week Christmas break because I was on vacation, but now that I’m back to work and working more hours than last year, it … Continue reading I can find a way to do it all
Alright, so I think I’m going to make it through the first week of Focus T25 Beta, tired, but I’ll make it. I got through it a little later than I hoped yesterday but I did it. Before that I did some cardio on the stationary bike but I didn’t walk after. Today, after a … Continue reading I’m getting better at this
Today I had all day to do whatever I wanted and I had a few things in mind. Before doing anything else I wanted to exercise and get that done in the morning, then I would have the rest of the day to do everything else. I didn’t do anything else. I started at 10 … Continue reading All day exercising
I hope you got to enjoy the weirder that usual Thanksgiving, and got to see at least some of your loved ones with safety precautions or on Zoom, WhatsApp, FaceTime or some other video calling app. After eating a slightly larger than usual lunch yesterday, I decided that even though it was a holiday, I … Continue reading Exercising after Thanksgiving
After work today, a few of us stayed behind to exercise. It was a nice change from exercising in my apartment. We started walking or running around the parking lot, each at our own pace. After a while we took a lap outside, around the building. It was a little scary because there were a … Continue reading Workout at work
As I mentioned last week I started Focus T-25 for the second time. I'm only half way into a 10 routine and during my workout I was wondering why I'm doing this to myself. This thought often comes to mind when I get tired, when I want to stop, but I keep pushing myself because … Continue reading I won’t give up, I’m doing the best I can
A year ago today I finished all ten weeks of Focus-T25 and I was so proud of myself. I spent a whole year thinking about doing it all over again but always gave up on the idea, until today. When I saw that it had already been a year, I just thought what are you … Continue reading Focus T-25: Here we go again
Happy fourth birthday Unstoppable Maria! I still can't believe it's been four years, I didn't' even realize it has been so long when I remembered it was our birthday today. The years have gone by in a flash and I've enjoyed every day of them, I really hope you have enjoyed reading. Thank you for … Continue reading Happy Birthday!
This morning I woke up earlier than usual, even though I had a long day at work because today I had an appointment with my neurologist. It was just a routine checkup, to let him know how everything is going and of course I was very proud to tell him that, if everything keeps going … Continue reading Almost there!
I did it, six years ago I learned how to walk again. If you ask me today how I did it I can only say I did it with a lot of hard work and a even more patience. It takes a lot of persistence, desire to move forward and even more faith in yourself. … Continue reading You can get back up again
This is the best way to show how angry I was six years ago, while I was still in the first stages of my recovery and I saw no way out. There were dark moments, like when I wrote this status update, when I would hit rock bottom, I was angry and would take it … Continue reading I’m just happy to be ok
Having an apartment all to myself is a lot of work, more work than I thought. I knew that after all the work we did this summer it wouldn't be over yet, I still needed to do somethings to finish, like painting my bathroom door. I had been avoiding that for days because something always … Continue reading Painting and cooking
I'm happy to say that right now I'm writing from the comfort of the living room in my new apartment! I moved in yesterday and as much as I wanted to tell everyone about it, I was too tired by the time I stopped trying to organize. The movers first went to our old apartment … Continue reading I’m home!!!
After a brief break from the remodeling, we got some work done today. It wasn't much, but I felt like I actually knew what I was doing, so my mom and I were trying to finish putting together one of the Ikea cabinets for my kitchen. Everything went well after I moved some screws that … Continue reading Hard work continues
