This is for my fellow epilepsy warriors, just in case you didn’t know, like me, People with epilepsy are at higher risk than other people for developing osteoporosis and fractures. The Epilepsy Foundation also mentions that women have a higher risk of developing osteoporosis (and therefore broken bones) than men and people on multiple antiseizure … Continue reading Epilepsy and Osteoporosis
Guess what I did today. I finished month one of Insanity! Honestly, I can’t even describe how I feel; I don’t really know. It’s a mix of proud, surprised, motivated, happy and tired. I’m very tired but I think that’s understandable, it’s been four very tough weeks. I haven’t skipped one day and some days … Continue reading Finished Insanity: Month 1!
Since I finished Insanity Max (I love saying that) on Saturday, I had to choose the next program I was going to do. I was caught between Let’s get up and Insanity. They are both by the same coach, Shaun T but they are very different. I had already done Insanity like 10 years ago. … Continue reading I’m ready to do this again
After three months and a half, I’m almost at the end of Insanity Max:30. With only two weeks left, I can’t help but think back to the moment I decided to start this and wonder, what was I thinking? I didn’t really know what I was getting myself into, but I’m glad I didn’t because … Continue reading Just two weeks to go!
I did it again! Yesterday I finished another month of Insanity Max:30! This time I finished month 1 of Ab Maximizer, which is really month 3 of Insanity Max. This month it was a little frustrating that after finishing the regular 30 minute video, I still had to do another 10 or 15 minute video … Continue reading Finished another month of Insanity!
I finished the second week of Ab Maximizer additional workouts on Saturday. I have to admit I didn’t do any of the weekend stretch or Pulse videos during the first two months of Insanity Max. I’m not going to make up a lame excuse; I knew there was something to do on weekends, I just … Continue reading Workout on Saturday too
Did you notice something different on the blog? That new banner was a surprise from my brother, who is also the graphic designer for Unstoppable María. If you didn’t notice, don’t worry, I often don’t pay attention to details like that either, but you can see the logo at the top of the page. I … Continue reading Week three Friday Fight
Successfully completed week one of Insanity Max:30!
Last week, after I got the Covid-19 vaccine on Thursday, I didn’t work out that day or the next. The CDC’s instructions were to take it easy after getting the vaccine. I did that the first time and I didn’t have any side effects except for some pain in the upper left arm, where I … Continue reading New rowing machine
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 was the first day of work after Christmas vacation and first day of work of 2021. First days of anything after vacation are always horrible but this one wasn’t bad. The only thing that was difficult was having to wake up at 6:30 again. I thought I wouldn’t want to go for a walk … Continue reading First day of work 2021
First day of my Christmas vacation was a success! I haven’t rested much but I did sort of complete my goal for today. My mom and I decided we’re going to be walking in different places during our vacation. Today we were going to the beach and our goal was to walk three miles. It … Continue reading Walking in the sand
I made it to week five, the last week of Focus T25 Alpha. I’m still not celebrating anything because I still have a week to go but I made it to week five! The week started with Total Body Circuit and I did my best, however that’s a tough one. I wish I could say … Continue reading I made it to week five!
I never take my self to seriously when I say I’m going to wake up early the next day. I know I want to but at night but I don’t really want to in the morning. That’s where I draw the line at being unstoppable, when I want to keep sleeping. So last night, when … Continue reading I said I would and I did!
