Working on my New Year’s resolution

This year I had two New Year’s resolutions. I have been doing my best to keep the first one which is writing more, but I hadn’t even started the second one, running again, for a number of reasons, including Covid. Now that that’s not an excuse anymore, I decided to stop wondering why I haven’t … Continue reading Working on my New Year’s resolution

Trying to imitate grandma’s cooking

I tried to make my grandma’s famous arroz con salchichas or rice and sausages. It’s always been famous to me because it’s my favorite, but Her famous dish is actually her flan. I don’t like flan but from what I hear, she makes a really good one. My grandma is a great cook and almost … Continue reading Trying to imitate grandma’s cooking

Using Apple Fitness

As of a few weeks ago I had to change the streaming service I used to workout. Now I’m using Apple Fitness instead Beach Body on Demand and the two are very different. Beach Body had a lot of different workout programs and Apple Fitness has hundreds of videos. I was already used to using … Continue reading Using Apple Fitness

ChaLEAN Extreme-Push Phase

I just finished the first part of the ChaLEAN Extreme program. This program includes four different four week resistance training calendars. The one I just finished is called Burn Phase It did take me longer than four weeks because I had Mycoplasma when I was starting the third week, but I jumped back in after … Continue reading ChaLEAN Extreme-Push Phase

More workouts and no more snacking

I thought everything was perfect as long as I took my anti convulsive medications, didn’t drink alcohol and slept eight hours every night. I forgot that I shouldn’t gain weight, at least not too much. Gaining weight affects my medication levels; if they are too low it could lead to a seizure. I have only … Continue reading More workouts and no more snacking

ChaLEAN Extreme- Week 1

I’m happy to say I found my new workout program very quickly; I only tried one two before deciding which one was right for me. I realized I liked the ChaLEAN Extreme program pretty quickly after I started it, even though I didn’t think I wanted to do resistance training, and I just finished my … Continue reading ChaLEAN Extreme- Week 1

Resistance training instead of cardio

After finishing my last workout program a week ago, my first attempt at a new program did not work. I was a little disappointed at first but quickly realized that I would much rather do something a little less intense before jumping into another program. That’s exactly what I did, I finished the week off … Continue reading Resistance training instead of cardio

Finished PiYo/T25 Hybrid Workout

After eight long weeks, I finished the PiYo/T25 Hybrid Program yesterday. It feels like that program was longer than two months instead of just eight weeks but I enjoyed doing those two very different routines together. At times they both felt just as difficult, even though they are very different. I this that’s what I … Continue reading Finished PiYo/T25 Hybrid Workout

PiYo/T25 Hybrid

I didn’t waste any time looking for a new workout program after I finished the four month PiYo program last week. I quickly started the PiYo/T25 Hybrid calendar and I really enjoy the mix of these two programs. I like having the intense T25 workouts combined with the low impact PiYo workouts. Having to do … Continue reading PiYo/T25 Hybrid

Finished PiYo!

Today I finished all four months of PiYo. This low impact program combines benefits from both Pilates and Yoga. It was something new to me and a little different than what I was used to but I quickly learned and enjoyed it. It was nothing too difficult but not too easy either. It was definitely … Continue reading Finished PiYo!

Just one moth of PiYo left

Just started the last month of PiYo today. Just four more left in this program but I’m thinking about doing one of the hybrid workouts when I’m done. There are two hybrid workouts, one is PiYo and P90X, the other is PiYo and T25. I might do the se Indy one, PiYo and T25 but … Continue reading Just one moth of PiYo left

Workouts feel more challenging every day

I have to make a correction to something I said more than once in previous blog posts. I said that the workout videos program I’m doing now was ton high intensity and that it was easier. I recently realized that I was very wrong. This is not easy and while it is “low-impact”, it really … Continue reading Workouts feel more challenging every day

New program: PiYo

The Asylum program didn’t work out either. I lost count of how many I have tried in the las few months. There were a few reasons why this one didn’t last either, among those being the job at Old Navy, Holiday distractions, a little confusion with the workout calendar and that I don’t have all … Continue reading New program: PiYo
