Ten years after my TBI

My TBI was officially one decade ago. When I think about it like that, a whole decade, it seems like an eternity but 10 years is a long time, even if sometime it may not seem that way. A lot has happened during these last ten years, not just my recovery. Ten years ago, I … Continue reading Ten years after my TBI

PiYo/T25 Hybrid

I didn’t waste any time looking for a new workout program after I finished the four month PiYo program last week. I quickly started the PiYo/T25 Hybrid calendar and I really enjoy the mix of these two programs. I like having the intense T25 workouts combined with the low impact PiYo workouts. Having to do … Continue reading PiYo/T25 Hybrid

Finished PiYo!

Today I finished all four months of PiYo. This low impact program combines benefits from both Pilates and Yoga. It was something new to me and a little different than what I was used to but I quickly learned and enjoyed it. It was nothing too difficult but not too easy either. It was definitely … Continue reading Finished PiYo!

Last week of PiYo

Today I began week 16 of PiYo, the last week of the program. I can’t believe I have been found this for 16 weeks. After four months of this high intensity, low impact routine, I’m used to the workouts and feel comfortable with most of the moves but I’m tired. I’m very tired today because … Continue reading Last week of PiYo

7 years seizure free!

As of yesterday, April 8, 2022, I am officially seven years seizure free! I didn’t have time to write a celebratory blog post like I do every year but that doesn’t mean I was not happy of telling everyone I could about it. I almost thought I didn’t make it earlier this week when because … Continue reading 7 years seizure free!

I made it to week 12 of PiYo!

Now that I finished another week of PiYo, I decided to look at the calendar to see what to expect in the next five weeks. If I’m being honest, I have to say I just got a little scared. I have already done a lot of what’s left at least once but there are still … Continue reading I made it to week 12 of PiYo!

EEG results- Still seizure free!

I got my EEG results today. I wanted the results to show that there was absolutely no seizure activity anymore so I could be taken off the anti seizure medication. I knew that wasn’t going to happen so I just hoped for something more realistic like it not getting worse. The EEG showed just that; … Continue reading EEG results- Still seizure free!

Tracking my brain wave patterns for 24 hours

I was forced to take a day off of PiYo for an EEG today. This is the 24 hour test where 24 electrodes are placed on my head for 24 hours to track and record brain wave patterns. The abnormal patterns show problems,which in my case are seizures. I always dread having this done, but … Continue reading Tracking my brain wave patterns for 24 hours

Workouts feel more challenging every day

I have to make a correction to something I said more than once in previous blog posts. I said that the workout videos program I’m doing now was ton high intensity and that it was easier. I recently realized that I was very wrong. This is not easy and while it is “low-impact”, it really … Continue reading Workouts feel more challenging every day

Back in the driver’s seat , ready to start PiYo Month 2

Today I got back in the driver’s seat of a car and went for a short and kind of slow drive. I have started driving again a few times already and I never get anywhere, but by the comments I got after my short drive, this will be better. My mom said I did well … Continue reading Back in the driver’s seat , ready to start PiYo Month 2

New year, starting over

It’s three days into the new year and today I felt the need to begin my current workout program from the beginning. I haven’t been doing this one for so long but I was having trouble following the daily calendar for the program. At first I thought I was doing fine but then I lost … Continue reading New year, starting over

New program: PiYo

The Asylum program didn’t work out either. I lost count of how many I have tried in the las few months. There were a few reasons why this one didn’t last either, among those being the job at Old Navy, Holiday distractions, a little confusion with the workout calendar and that I don’t have all … Continue reading New program: PiYo
