I did it, I exercised for six days straight. I completed my six days of exercising this morning on the stationary bike. I didn’t push myself too hard but I did exercise for 45 minutes. I think that’s good enough for the sixth day. Tomorrow is my well deserved rest day before I get started … Continue reading Six days!
The first week of blogging after exercising has been a success. I have been able to work out every day this week. I didn’t blog last night but I did exercise. And finally today, when I was tired and just wanted to be lazy, I decided to get up and walk to at least let … Continue reading Setting goals
Exercising in the morning is the best. This forces you to wake up and then you can just rest when you come home from work. This morning I finished working out before I had lunch and before I went to work, so now that I’m tired I don’t have anything to worry about, I can’t … Continue reading Morning workout
I was right when I said I was going to regret saying that I would write about my workouts to force myself to exercise. I didn’t want to walk when I got home from work but I didn’t want to quit on the second day. That’s the complete opposite of unstoppable. Today I got on … Continue reading It worked!
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
After resting yesterday, I want back to trying to complete the three miles today. Today I tried something new; I have been trying something different almost everyday. I decided I wanted to do something different for each mile today, so three different exercises. First I walked/ran on the treadmill. Here I did one mile in … Continue reading Almost three miles
I did it, I walked for three miles in less than an hour! Well, it was 56 minutes and 44 seconds and that’s less than 60 minutes even if just 3 minutes and 56 seconds less. Today I also walked at home but I didn’t use the treadmill, I did walking videos on YouTube. Each … Continue reading Three miles in less than an hour
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
When the quarantine started I promised myself I would organize my closet during this time I couldn't leave my house. I thought I would be so bored staying home all day that I would be happy to organize my closet and have something to do. I never did it during those first two weeks like … Continue reading Day forty something in quarantine, what else can I do?
Right now we are all facing something unknown and have to cancel or postpone events, whether we like it or not. This is the case for everyone graduating this year from high school and college. Believe me, I know it sucks not being able to be a part of the celebration of your hard work … Continue reading Don’t cancel, just postpone
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
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
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
I thought our Sunday walk would not be that long today because we walked with Indy and Sandy yesterday and it looked like it was going to rain today. We first did the Paseo de la Princesa and El Morro walk, which seemed shorter today. Maybe it was because we had already done it, maybe … Continue reading A day in San Juan
A couple of years ago I took a spinning class at the gym for a while. It was a lot of fun and a great workout but I hadn't done spinning or been on an exercise bike since I stopped the gym. In fact, I haven't even ridden a real bicycle in over ten years. … Continue reading Our new stationary bike
