I need a break after Recovery Week

Recovery week it over! In the begging I was happy to have a break from the intense workout but by Thursday I wanted it to be over. It started to get boring because it’s the same video every day. By the fourth day of doing the same thing, I was sick of it, but I … Continue reading I need a break after Recovery Week

Epilepsy and Osteoporosis

This is for my fellow epilepsy warriors, just in case you didn’t know, like me, People with epilepsy are at higher risk than other people for developing osteoporosis and fractures. The Epilepsy Foundation also mentions that women have a higher risk of developing osteoporosis (and therefore broken bones) than men and people on multiple antiseizure … Continue reading Epilepsy and Osteoporosis

Seizure First Aid Ready

I just found the best online certification that I want all my family and friends to get, just in case. This free, online certificate is a 30 minute course that “educates the public on the Epilepsy Foundation’s basic procedures for responding to someone having a seizure.” If you complete the course you receive a certificate … Continue reading Seizure First Aid Ready

I couldn’t afford to control my seizures anymore

In March I got the big surprise that the pharmacy that had been providing me with both anti epilepsy medication for the past six years, would no longer be able to help me with the most expensive one of the two medicines I need. Why? Because suddenly my health insurance decided to provide coverage for … Continue reading I couldn’t afford to control my seizures anymore

Exercise bike cardio

Every day when I exercise I begin by doing some kind of cardio exercise, like I used to do when I went to the gym. Right now I like to use the stationary bike but it doesn’t really matter what kind of cardiovascular exercise to do, as long as you do at least 150 minutes … Continue reading Exercise bike cardio

Got my first Covid19 vaccine today!

Great news, I got my Covid19 vaccine today! I was so nervous before I got it because of those rumors going around that the needle is big but that’s not true.

I’m going to miss these walks

With only few days left in my Christmas vacation, I want to make the best of the last morning walks. It feels like it’s coming to an end too soon, just when I was getting used to it. Today we went to old San Juan again, but we didn’t take our usual route, we went … Continue reading I’m going to miss these walks

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. We completed the first mile before we got to the end, at which point we turned back and did the second mile. https://www.saveagato.com/who_we_are Today it was … Continue reading Not running for a few days

My latest electroencephalogram

When my neurologist tells me I need to get another electroencephalogram, I feel a little anxious. I don’t like the thought of having cables glued to my scalp for a whole day and not being able to do anything but stay home, anyway I have to get the EEG. They use this to detect electrical … Continue reading My latest electroencephalogram

Today I had all day to do whatever I wanted and I had a few things in mind.

I started at 10 … Continue reading All day exercising

Happy to say I made it through week one

I can finally say I finished my first week of Focus T25. Today was my last day, all I had to do was stretch. Each of these videos has a few minutes of stretching at the end but today was 25 minutes of stretching. It is not difficult at all and I like we don’t … Continue reading Happy to say I made it through week one

This is the best I can do today

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

Can’t quit, won’t quit

The first few days after I did the virtual 5k in September I was really tired so I decided to take it easy for a couple of days. A couple of days turned into a whole week and after that I just exercised a few times a week, I just walked and didn’t do anything … Continue reading Can’t quit, won’t quit
