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

All day exercising

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

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

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. It took me 113 minutes to walk 3.33 miles on the treadmill. That’s too much; last time I did a 5k I … Continue reading Getting ready for the 5k

This is not over yet

I thought that by July this should all be under control, I mean, we have been living with this huge mess for over four months now. We should have our act together by now, but no, it’s just getting worse. People just want to go “back to normal“ but WE CAN’T. That is not normal … Continue reading This is not over yet

COVID-19 Testing

These days, if you get sick or have any symptoms of anything, the only thing anyone thinks about is Coronavirus. That makes complete sense to me because, what if you do have it? Well, you have to get tested. So, after having a headache and fever, I went to get tested for COVID19. I was … Continue reading COVID-19 Testing

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…

Going back to work during COVID_19

After two months in quarantine I went back to work on Monday and things are a lot different than they were two months ago. There are less people around but those few of us are still distancing from each other, wearing masks, constantly cleaning and washing our hands or using hand sanitizer. While it feels … Continue reading Going back to work during COVID_19

iHeart Living-room Concert

Last night,iHeartMedia and FOX hosted a concert with the biggest names in music in my television. That’s right, me and my family as well as anyone else who wanted to watch from their TV, computer, tablet, or telephone, had a front row seat to watch Elton John host the show from his house. We saw … Continue reading iHeart Living-room Concert

Brain Injury and social distancing

We are just ending our second week of isolation in Puerto Rico on Monday and were told last night by the governor that we will be in isolation for two more weeks, until April 12. She also announced that the rules will be more strict during these next two weeks with the curfew starting earlier, … Continue reading Brain Injury and social distancing

Epilepsy and COVID-19

When I first heard of the Coronavirus spread, the first question I had was if it would increase my risk of seizures, if it would cause one, even while I'm on medication or if it increased the risk of coronavirus. People with epilepsy are not immunocompromised so it does not put us at a higher … Continue reading Epilepsy and COVID-19
