Ready for 60 more days of Insanity Max: 30

I was longing to have a weekend at the beach, I mean, it’s almost July and I don’t think this is the first time I go to the beach this summer. I really wanted to rest and get away for at least a day, so thanks to my cousin and his girlfriend for visiting and … Continue reading Ready for 60 more days of Insanity Max: 30

Exercise bike cardio

Every day when I exercise I begin by doing some kind of cardio exercise, like I used to do when I went to the gym. Right now I like to use the stationary bike but it doesn’t really matter what kind of cardiovascular exercise to do, as long as you do at least 150 minutes … Continue reading Exercise bike cardio

Gamma: Week eight

Today I began week four of Focus T25 Gamma part 2. That is weekeight of the entire Gamma workout program and in four days I’ll be done! I hadn’t noticed that it has already been seven weeks. I cannot say that they went by fast because I feel like I have been doing this forever. … Continue reading Gamma: Week eight

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

Started week four again

Last week, after getting the vaccine, I thought I would be able to finish week 4 of my workout routine. This is the first time, since I started doing these videos that I haven't completed a whole week of videos but it wasn't because I didn't want to, my arm hurt when I moved it. … Continue reading Started week four again

Happy to say I made it through week one

I can finally say I finished my first week of Focus T25. Today was my last day, all I had to do was stretch. Each of these videos has a few minutes of stretching at the end but today was 25 minutes of stretching. It is not difficult at all and I like we don’t … Continue reading Happy to say I made it through week one

Double day

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

Just started week 2

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

Six days!

I did it, I exercised for six days straight. I completed my six days of exercising this morning on the stationary bike. I didn’t push myself too hard but I did exercise for 45 minutes. I think that’s good enough for the sixth day. Tomorrow is my well deserved rest day before I get started … Continue reading Six days!

Getting ready for the 5k

Today I decided to start getting ready for the 5k I signed up for last week. This means walking for a lot longer than just thirty minutes which is what I usually do. It took me 113 minutes to walk 3.33 miles on the treadmill. That’s too much; last time I did a 5k I … Continue reading Getting ready for the 5k

Rogue Trip

I can’t help but be impressed by the amazing things TBI survivors do. The most recent one I found out about is ABC journalist Bob Woodruff. Bob suffered a serious injury in Iraq in 2006. He was there covering the Palestinian elections and was later visiting the troops. He and Doug Vogt, camera man, were … Continue reading Rogue Trip

I’ve been thinking…

My family seems to worry every time I say something that starts with the phrase “so, I’ve been thinking...” This phrase is sometimes followed by something random I’ve been wondering about that really shouldn’t worry anybody; it’s just a question. Then there are the times that I’ve come up with a change I want to … Continue reading I’ve been thinking…

5 years seizure free!

I made it another year! I’m five years seizure free! This would be a great reason to go out for dinner to celebrate and we have on past years but sadly we can’t this year. The best and safest way to celebrate is staying home but this doesn’t stop me from being incredibly happy! Five … Continue reading 5 years seizure free!
