On Monday I started part two of Focus T25 Gamma. In my mind I was thinking that it would be more difficult right from the beginning just because it’s the second part. I thought it had to be different and tougher. Now I'm on the third day and it has not been more difficult yet. … Continue reading I can do it, I can stay focused
Today I feel proud of myself. I was able to not just walk and do a workout video, but I also spent half an hour on the bicycle. That was all after going to work, of course it was all possible because I came home from work early but still , it’s an accomplishment. I … Continue reading Only Tuesday?
This morning I had an appointment with my neurologist over the phone. I was anxiously waiting for this appointment because today he would give me the results of the EEG I had in December. He didn’t mention anything at first, which I was sure was a good sign, but I still wanted to know so … Continue reading Five years seizure free!
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
After over a week, I got to go for a walk outside. This is a great thing to do now that it’s December because it’s so nice outside, at least during the evening. You don’t really sweat that much or feel too tired while you are walking. You feel tired when you’re done walking. Even … Continue reading I can and I will
I wanted to take it easy today so I was hoping the video for today was an easy one, but I forgot it’s Friday and Friday is double day in the Focus T25 routine. This means you do two videos, or 50 minutes, instead of the regular 25. This doesn’t mean you have to do … Continue reading Double day
I wasn’t sure if this was going to work but week one of blogging after I exercise was a success so here I go again. It pushed me to exercise six days of the week which is way better than what I can usually do when I get lazy. After seeing how well last week … Continue reading Just started week 2
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
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
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
I just finished walking and running for an hour on my treadmill. Well, it was more like walking for 57 minutes and running for three, but whatever, I walked for an hour. As I walked for the last few minutes, even though I was tired of walking, I was happy. I thought there must be … Continue reading So that’s why I’m happy
It's Christmas! It's finally here, the happiest tone of the year! There's lights, music, parties, family, friends, and food, a lot of food. But there is also pressure to be at all the parties, to host some of them, to make or bring food, to give presents, to talk to everyone at the party and … Continue reading How to survive and enjoy the holiday season
Maybe you have seen this in the news or social media but we, the people of Puerto Rico, have had enough of this. 889 pages of a personal chat between the governor and his team, were leaked to the press. They talk about things which the governor described as "stress relief" but the rest of … Continue reading Ricky Renuncia (Ricky Resign)
Today I'm doing what I do most days, reading my old blog post that I see in my memories on Facebook or Timehop, but today I thought I should do more than share one of them. This post is from June 14, 2017, just two years ago that feel like a million. https://unstoppablemaria.com/2017/06/14/dont-give-up-believe-in-yourself/Don’t give up, … Continue reading The best thing I did was to stay positive
I didn't think about it, but writing this brings a lot of old feelings back. I can't help but look back at the last seven years of my life, at least what I can remember of them and the worst moments come to mind. From that very first memory that always makes me sad and … Continue reading Seven years later…
