Next exercise program

After spending almost a month deciding what to do next, was almost sure I finally found it. This week I started Transform: 20, a 20 minute workout program that’s not like anything I’ve done before. This program is not like the others I’ve done with Beach Body because you need a step. It is optional, … Continue reading Next exercise program

Intense Thanksgiving weekend

I don’t think I had been able to take a break and relax for the last three days until this afternoon. First there was Thanksgiving on Thursday when, even though it was nice seeing family again after at least two years, it was still a lot being a co-host to the celebration. If waking up … Continue reading Intense Thanksgiving weekend

Yoga recovery week

I decided to take it easy for a week to recover from those intense nine weeks of Insanity so I’m doing Yoga this week. I might also start using the stationary bike but I’m still not sure, maybe I should just rest for the rest of the week. That was an intense program, even with … Continue reading Yoga recovery week

Insanity workouts: DONE!

That’s it, I did it! I finished the 60 day Insanity program. I still can’t believe I did it and, as I’ve already said it, I didn’t think I would be able to do it but I had to try and I did it! I worked out six days a week for nine weeks from … Continue reading Insanity workouts: DONE!

Epilepsy and Osteoporosis

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

Finished Insanity: Month 1!

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!

I’m ready to do this again

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

Just two weeks to go!

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!

Finished another month of Insanity!

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!

Workout on Saturday too

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

Week three Friday Fight

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

New rowing machine

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

I can do it, I can stay focused

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
