Last minute interview 

So today I had the guts to ask if they got my application for a job at the gym. They had and the woman I asked actually had it in her hands among other applications. I asked her at the right time because the manager was right there and I was able to sit down … Continue reading Last minute interview

Workout videos vs. Gym

I recently made a change in my life, I left the gym I joined after I was done with my therapies. I had ups and downs at the gym, periods of time when I went frequently and really enjoyed it and times when I was bored, couldn't go that frequently and didn't really feel like … Continue reading Workout videos vs. Gym

This morning I woke up feeling like I had a hangover 

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 

Don’t tell Unstoppable Maria she’s just making excuses

Anyone who reads my blog, even they just read it once, knows that I have no problem talking about my accident. Even if I don't remember what really happened during my recovery or I don't know what happened because I wasn't conscious at the time and confuse the stories I have been told, I am … Continue reading Don’t tell Unstoppable Maria she’s just making excuses

My new Fitbit is here!

At the end of August my Fitbit Charge began to break, I had only had it for about seven months and the wrist band started peeling out, then the button on the right and the piece that held it fell out too. I hadn't done anything except wear it everyday. I didn't know if I … Continue reading My new Fitbit is here!

Recharging batteries

Today was rainy and a little cold (not cold as in freezing but cold as in you're not sweating when you walk outside) in San Juan. To recharge batteries after the long weekend this is just what I needed to start the week. I rested after going to the gym this morning so I'm still … Continue reading Recharging batteries

Pay more attention 

For the last like three weeks I have been going to the X-Bike class I talked about the first time I went and it's going pretty well. I'm getting used to it and the people in the class as well as the teacher, are all really nice. I don't feel intimidated anymore, but today there … Continue reading Pay more attention

Keep it up, don’t quit now

Summer is officially over, at least for me. My summer companion and my ride, my mom, started working today. That's it,the two month's went by too fast, as they do every summer and on the end of summer I let myself down. Why? Because on the very first day of August, of this new semester, … Continue reading Keep it up, don’t quit now

Forget clothing sizes, they’re just numbers

That's it, I don't want to worry about my size anymore. I have been worried because I have been trying to fit into clothes that just don't fit me anymore, they were small sizes I could fit into when I was too skinny after my accident. I'm tired about feeling ashamed of my body just … Continue reading Forget clothing sizes, they’re just numbers

Why did I say I was going to do this?

Day 3, but i've been working out everyday since Monday so really it's day 4, and I'm feeling it. Not the work, the pain. I am so tired and I can't believe tomorrow I have to go again. Why do I do this? Well, I said on my blog so I don't want to be … Continue reading Why did I say I was going to do this?

Day 1- I’m not quitting

Day one of my new healthy lifestyle went very well. I don't know if I'm doing this right because I'm not on a diet so I ate my cheeseburger and Ruffles chips with sour cream and onion dip for lunch, but the cheeseburger wasn't big. I also went to the gym after that, so that's … Continue reading Day 1- I’m not quitting

This is not a diet

This summer has been a rude awakening for me, showing me that I need to worry about my weight. I never cared about this, I love to eat and that's true love, I will never abandon it, but I forgot I can't eat everything on my plate and then have two, maybe three scoops of … Continue reading This is not a diet
