I did it! I woke up at 6 a.m. this morning to workout and I loved it. I wasn’t working in the morning because I didn’t want to wake up so early but waking up a little bit earlier is better for now. I had forgotten how good exercising first thing in the morning feels. … Continue reading Started my morning workouts again
I’m proud of myself today. I thought maybe I wouldn’t be able to work out today because it was so hot, around 93 degrees Fahrenheit, but I did it!

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.

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
I just finished the first part of the ChaLEAN Extreme program. This program includes four different four week resistance training calendars.

So now there’s only five days left of the PiYo/T25 workout program. From now until Saturday it’s going to be a piece of cake because I did the most difficult video for the last time today.

My TBI was officially one decade ago. When I think about it like that, a whole decade, it seems like an eternity but 10 years is a long time, even if sometime it may not seem that way. A lot has happened during these last ten years, not just my recovery. Ten years ago, I … Continue reading Ten years after my TBI

It was definitely … Continue reading Finished PiYo!
