I did it again! Yesterday I finished another month of Insanity Max:30! This time I finished month 1 of Ab Maximizer, which is really month 3 of Insanity Max. This month it was a little frustrating that after finishing the regular 30 minute video, I still had to do another 10 or 15 minute video … Continue reading Finished another month of Insanity!
Successfully completed week one of Insanity Max:30!
Ok now I’m done with week three of Focus T25. I finished everything this week, even the Sunday stretch. Tomorrow I begin the fourth and last week of part 1 of Gamma. Even though I’m almost done with the first four weeks, I still feel like I’m on week 1 because I’m still having trouble … Continue reading Week three of Focus T25 Gamma: Done!
I can’t expect to have a great workout everyday or for every week to be as successful as the last because that’s just not realistic. What I can do is do the best I can everyday. Some days that will mean an hour on the treadmill, workout videos and more time on the treadmill, while … Continue reading This is the best I can do today
I can’t help but be impressed by the amazing things TBI survivors do. The most recent one I found out about is ABC journalist Bob Woodruff. Bob suffered a serious injury in Iraq in 2006. He was there covering the Palestinian elections and was later visiting the troops. He and Doug Vogt, camera man, were … Continue reading Rogue Trip
So far October has been exhausting for me; I have been working a lot, which is great but I haven't had time to relax and sit down and write. I feel like I have been working extremely long hours every day this week but I have only been working for seven hours. That is one … Continue reading So tired but have to keep going
Yesterday was another historic day for Puerto Rico. We still haven't gotten the governor to resign but Puerto Ricans have come together like never before, to get him out of here. There have been protests for about 10 days straight, since the nasty chat conversation was first leaked. These protests have not just been held … Continue reading A new Puerto Rico
Maybe you have seen this in the news or social media but we, the people of Puerto Rico, have had enough of this. 889 pages of a personal chat between the governor and his team, were leaked to the press. They talk about things which the governor described as "stress relief" but the rest of … Continue reading Ricky Renuncia (Ricky Resign)
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
First of all, Happy Mother's Day to all mothers. We couldn't be alive without you, like, literally. Thank you for everything else you do, after we get to this crazy world. From changing our disgusting diapers to teaching us how to walk, then drive and sorry for wrecking the car (we all did at one … Continue reading Happy Mother’s Day
It's March again and you know what that means? Brain Injury Awareness Month. Every year different organizations have different campaigns to celebrate this month, like #ChangeYourMind from the Brain Injury Association of America or the best one I've seen so far #notinvisible. This campaign is being used by Faces of TBI, a movement started by … Continue reading Brain Injury Awareness Month 2019
I know It was yesterday but it's never to late to try to raise awareness, especially for something as important to me as epilepsy. So this year I would like to share this quiz, which I was very surprised and happy to see BuzzFeed taking a part in Epilepsy Day. What do you know about … Continue reading Epilepsy Day 2019
As much as I write about my brain injury, I sometimes feel like I can't really explain exactly what it's like. Everything I read says different things about what it feels like but that's not always what I feel. I don't know if others feel the same way but as much as I try to … Continue reading The Invisible Rain Cloud
Yes we are, we all are and don't ever let anyone tell you otherwise. You and me and everyone else fighting this battle is a champion. We each fight our own battles and become stronger after every they are done. Keep fighting and don't give up because you can do it, I know you can. … Continue reading You are strong
