I fell but I got up

This morning when my alarm went off  at 7:30, I didn't turn it off and went back to sleep, I woke up, got out of bed and began my day. Waking up half an hour earlier gave me time to eat something, take a shower, get dressed and do my makeup without rushing . So … Continue reading I fell but I got up

So tired but have to keep going

So far October has been exhausting for me; I have been working a lot, which is great but I haven't had time to relax and sit down and write. I feel like I have been working extremely long hours every day this week but I have only been working for seven hours. That is one … Continue reading So tired but have to keep going

A new Puerto Rico

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. There have been protests for about 10 days straight, since the nasty chat conversation was first leaked. These protests have not just been held … Continue reading A new Puerto Rico

My long weekend at the beach

As I said last time, I was spending this weekend at the beach. I had been waiting for this for months and after patiently waiting I finally got the chance to go to the beach, not one, but two days. On the first day, (you can read about it on Back at the beach) we rented a … Continue reading My long weekend at the beach

I was finally standing

Every year, on October 31 I come around this great memory. This was one of my proudest days during rehabilitation. I had been working hard for months I was still not able do do anything by myself, when after six months, I was able to stand. That's it, standing, which now I take for granted … Continue reading I was finally standing

Yoga Rehabilitation Therapy

I have taken yoga a few times and I have to admit it is relaxing, at least way more relaxing than doing any other exercise. I have also done aqua yoga, which is yoga in the water. I like that better because I love being in the water and movements are easier in the water. … Continue reading Yoga Rehabilitation Therapy

One step at a time 

After over a month the boxes my aunts sent my parents to help life after Hurricane Maria finally arrived. My mom was so happy with all the food, batteries, flashlights and solar chargers for cellphones and computers.  Mail was already being delivered but when they still hadn’t received any packages I thought they had been … Continue reading One step at a time 

My new Fitbit is here!

At the end of August my Fitbit Charge began to break, I had only had it for about seven months and the wrist band started peeling out, then the button on the right and the piece that held it fell out too. I hadn't done anything except wear it everyday. I didn't know if I … Continue reading My new Fitbit is here!

Why did I say I was going to do this?

Day 3, but i've been working out everyday since Monday so really it's day 4, and I'm feeling it. Not the work, the pain. I am so tired and I can't believe tomorrow I have to go again. Why do I do this? Well, I said on my blog so I don't want to be … Continue reading Why did I say I was going to do this?

Day 1- I’m not quitting

Day one of my new healthy lifestyle went very well. I don't know if I'm doing this right because I'm not on a diet so I ate my cheeseburger and Ruffles chips with sour cream and onion dip for lunch, but the cheeseburger wasn't big. I also went to the gym after that, so that's … Continue reading Day 1- I’m not quitting

Remember that hike I talked about yesterday? Well, I have the proof, I got the pictures from my aunt so you can all see. It had been so long since a had been on a hike like that, in nature, not in a mall or theme park or anything like that; walking, in a forrest, … Continue reading Para la naturaleza artsy hike

Personal record braking time in Walgreens 5k

A few hours ago I completed my 6th 5k in a little over three years. It was a great accomplishment for me, not only because it was the sixth, and I did it all by myself, but because I beat my personal record time. If I remember correctly my fastest time had been 50 or 55 … Continue reading Personal record braking time in Walgreens 5k

I signed up/ R.I.P Prince

Happy to say I signed up for the Walgreens 5K this Sunday. After working on getting the word out about it, I feel like I owe it to myself, to my boss, and to Walgreens, to join in all the fun and run/walk.  I hope that I can do better than I did on the … Continue reading I signed up/ R.I.P Prince

Strength? Cardio?

Is Strength Training or Cardio Better for Fat Loss? This was interesting. I thought we could get those muscles from just doing cardio, and strength training was so we could lift stuff. Strength training always seemed like it was for people who wanted to be Superman, people who wanted to have big muscles. I was … Continue reading Strength? Cardio?
