Life is slowly going back to normal after the holidays, which means taking down Christmas decorations and going back to work.

Not running for a few days

Our goal for yesterday was to only walk for two miles outside the walls of old San Juan again but we didn’t walk all the way to the end.

I didn’t know I had that much energy

I feel like I’m really getting into this whole exercising thing. I think I’m starting to see results and I don’t know how to explain it but I feel good.

Last minute change in our walking route

Today, our new walking group bailed on us so my mom and I decided to pick our own walking route. We thought is would be better to walk outside, not in a parking lot so we went nearby to my grandparents neighborhood. It’s safe, it’s open and my mom knows her way around because she … Continue reading Last minute change in our walking route

Second week: Done!

I waited until the end of the day to exercise today so I thought I would probably just do a half an hour on the bicycle and be done with it. I didn’t feel like putting that much effort into it. Who wants to exercise on Saturday afternoon? Not me, I thought, but I wanted … Continue reading Second week: Done!

Getting ready for the 5k

Today I decided to start getting ready for the 5k I signed up for last week. This means walking for a lot longer than just thirty minutes which is what I usually do.

I’ve been thinking…

My family seems to worry every time I say something that starts with the phrase “so, I’ve been thinking...” This phrase is sometimes followed by something random I’ve been wondering about that really shouldn’t worry anybody; it’s just a question. Then there are the times that I’ve come up with a change I want to … Continue reading I’ve been thinking…
