Another day, done!

I completed my goal for today again, this time in a different order. I did the first two parts of my workout, the bicycle and the video, this morning before work. After work I finished by walking outside for one mile. We didn’t walk more because it was going to start raining but we also … Continue reading Another day, done!

Doing better every day

Today we walked more than we did on Thursday and we finished our walk faster. Next time we’re aiming to walk a little more, maybe like 2.30 miles. It’s not a lot more but if we increase little by little we can get to three miles pretty soon. I also managed to do 25 more … Continue reading Doing better every day

Last minute change in our walking route

Today, our new walking group bailed on us so my mom and I decided to pick our own walking route. We thought is would be better to walk outside, not in a parking lot so we went nearby to my grandparents neighborhood. It’s safe, it’s open and my mom knows her way around because she … Continue reading Last minute change in our walking route

Interval training

This afternoon I did the second video of the Focus T25 exercise routine. I thought I wouldn’t want to do anything today after all I did yesterday but I did! Just like yesterday, I used the stationary bike, did the video and walked on the treadmill. Today I used the bike for 45 minutes, then … Continue reading Interval training

Let’s try this again

Today I made a last minute decision and changed my exercise routine a little bit. I hope it will be for the better and I don’t change my mind halfway through. After already warming up and spending over half an hour on the bicycle, I decided I didn’t want to just keep doing workout videos … Continue reading Let’s try this again

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!

Setting goals

The first week of blogging after exercising has been a success. I have been able to work out every day this week. I didn’t blog last night but I did exercise. And finally today, when I was tired and just wanted to be lazy, I decided to get up and walk to at least let … Continue reading Setting goals

Morning workout

Exercising in the morning is the best. This forces you to wake up and then you can just rest when you come home from work. This morning I finished working out before I had lunch and before I went to work, so now that I’m tired I don’t have anything to worry about, I can’t … Continue reading Morning workout

Can’t quit, won’t quit

The first few days after I did the virtual 5k in September I was really tired so I decided to take it easy for a couple of days. A couple of days turned into a whole week and after that I just exercised a few times a week, I just walked and didn’t do anything … Continue reading Can’t quit, won’t quit

My first virtual 5k

I haven’t done a 5k in a very long time and with the pandemic I didn’t think there would be any anytime soon. Then I heard that some people from work were doing a virtual 5k. In my head this meant walking in front of your computer for three miles, but that’s not the only … Continue reading My first virtual 5k

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…

A day in San Juan

I thought our Sunday walk would not be that long today because we walked with Indy and Sandy yesterday and it looked like it was going to rain today. We first did the Paseo de la Princesa and El Morro walk, which seemed shorter today. Maybe it was because we had already done it, maybe … Continue reading A day in San Juan

Let’s go on another walk

We did it, we walked again this weekend; first on Saturday night night then again on Sunday morning. Both days we walked in Old San Juan but we took different routes, we don’t want to get bored of the same thing. It was a little difficult on Saturday night because we had to go up … Continue reading Let’s go on another walk

Our new stationary bike

A couple of years ago I took a spinning class at the gym for a while. It was a lot of fun and a great workout but I hadn't done spinning or been on an exercise bike since I stopped the gym. In fact, I haven't even ridden a real bicycle in over ten years. … Continue reading Our new stationary bike

Who doesn’t like a morning walk?

I never liked morning walks or mornings when I was young, but as I got older and things changed in my life I now like doing things like walking and exercising in the morning. So when my parents wanted me to go on a walk with them to Old San Juan I said yes. They … Continue reading Who doesn’t like a morning walk?
