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

Social distancing day 3 or 4

So I’m not really sure how long this social distancing has been because I don’t know when I should have started counting. Was it Sunday or Monday? It doesn’t really matter anyway because it doesn’t change the fact that we can’t go out. I’m not complaining about this, I actually think it has been good … Continue reading Social distancing day 3 or 4

Work and the Coronavirus

Ok before jumping in to what everyone is talking about right now I want to share some good news. This week I started a second job! And better than having two jobs it’s a blogging job. Right now I’m setting up a blog for a company and pretty soon I will start writing whatever they … Continue reading Work and the Coronavirus

Let’s go on another walk

We did it, we walked again this weekend; first on Saturday night night then again on Sunday morning. Both days we walked in Old San Juan but we took different routes, we don’t want to get bored of the same thing. It was a little difficult on Saturday night because we had to go up … Continue reading Let’s go on another walk

Don’t ignore pain, it just makes it worse

Today was my third therapy session for that back pain, which has gotten better and hurts less than it did before. I was really hoping it would be gone by Sunday so it wouldn't bother at the Ricky Martin concert. Unfortunately it still bothered me and the seats at the coliseum didn't help but Ricky … Continue reading Don’t ignore pain, it just makes it worse
