I finished week one, only seven to go

This was a difficult week to start doing a new workout program, especially one like Insanity. Aside from looking for jobs and taking two online certifications, we were taking care of three dogs my parents found abandoned in the park. We were able to find homes for two of them but we still have one … Continue reading I finished week one, only seven to go

Who would have thought nine years ago I’d be doing this today?

I made up my mind yesterday, I was going to continue doing the Insanity workout program today. I even did the fit test yesterday so I was ready to start and I was even going to be able to do it earlier that usual. Everything seemed to be in place, except the power went out … Continue reading Who would have thought nine years ago I’d be doing this today?

Finished four months of Insanity Max:30!

I did it, I finished all four months of Insanity Max:30! I can’t believe it, I still feel like I may be a week behind or something, but no, I’m done!

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

Tired but still walking

I was right, my legs hurt today after last night’s run but it wasn’t too much pain to stop me from walking. I’m tired but I’m still committed to exercising six times a week, even if it’s only for a little while. No running, cycling or videos today, I just walked. I was tired when … Continue reading Tired but still walking

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!

Positive mind for 2020

Happy New Year! So here I am looking forward to this year, hoping great things happen and trying to ignore the bad.

This year however, I'm scared because we ended … Continue reading Positive mind for 2020

There’s more of us and we are not afraid

After spending all day yesterday waiting for the governor to resign, I went to sleep with no news of his resignation and thinking I would wake up to horrible news of disaster. Our protests these past two weeks since parts of the governor's horrible chat with those close to him were first leaked on June … Continue reading There’s more of us and we are not afraid

Yesterday was another historic day for Puerto Rico. We still haven't gotten the governor to resign but Puerto Ricans have come together like never before, to get him out of here.

Ricky Renuncia (Ricky Resign)

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)

Focus T-25: Here we go again

A year ago today I finished all ten weeks of Focus-T25 and I was so proud of myself. I spent a whole year thinking about doing it all over again but always gave up on the idea, until today. When I saw that it had already been a year, I just thought what are you … Continue reading Focus T-25: Here we go again

Wake up call

Today has been seven years since the day I officially woke up from the coma, the first day I showed any sign of acknowledging the people around me. I don't remember any of this but I was also probably thinking what is going's on? Where am I? I think all I could do was look … Continue reading Wake up call
