Hiking to Cañón San Cristobal

To change our weekend routine, my family decided we should go on a hike on Sunday, so we went to Cañon San Cristobal in Barranquitas. I had never been there and didn’t know what to expect, I just knew that is was going to be hot. Because it was going to be very hot, we … Continue reading Hiking to Cañón San Cristobal

More workouts and no more snacking

I thought everything was perfect as long as I took my anti convulsive medications, didn’t drink alcohol and slept eight hours every night. I forgot that I shouldn’t gain weight, at least not too much. Gaining weight affects my medication levels; if they are too low it could lead to a seizure. I have only … Continue reading More workouts and no more snacking

Resistance training instead of cardio

After finishing my last workout program a week ago, my first attempt at a new program did not work. I was a little disappointed at first but quickly realized that I would much rather do something a little less intense before jumping into another program. That’s exactly what I did, I finished the week off … Continue reading Resistance training instead of cardio

Less that one week left!

So now there’s only five days left of the PiYo/T25 workout program. From now until Saturday it’s going to be a piece of cake because I did the most difficult video for the last time today. As tired as I am from that 50 minute PiYo video, I couldn’t help but smile when I realized … Continue reading Less that one week left!

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

Just one moth of PiYo left

Just started the last month of PiYo today. Just four more left in this program but I’m thinking about doing one of the hybrid workouts when I’m done. There are two hybrid workouts, one is PiYo and P90X, the other is PiYo and T25. I might do the se Indy one, PiYo and T25 but … Continue reading Just one moth of PiYo left

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!

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

PiYo Strength Intervals

Finished week three of PiYo a couple of hours ago. Today’s workout was Strength Intervals and I really didn’t know what to expect. It was a little different then the others but I liked it because I felt like it included cardio. Even though it was a short video and I didn’t think I did … Continue reading PiYo Strength Intervals

Starting Insanity: The Asylum

I don’t know whyI was having so much trouble looking for an new exercise program to do after a finished Insanity. It’s been almost a month since a finished and today I started what should have been the most obvious choice, Insanity: The Asylum. This program includes drills used by professional athletes. That’s exactly why … Continue reading Starting Insanity: The Asylum

This is it, last two weeks!

That’s right, just two weeks of Insanity. That’s s nothing, especially after you have already put in six weeks, seven if you count recovery week, but right now it feels like an eternity. That’s 17 workout videos in 13 days. There’s two ways of thinking about that: 1) Shit, that’s a lot! I can’t do … Continue reading This is it, last two weeks!

Starting Insanity Month 2

After taking a small break from Insanity after the recovery week, it was time to go back. My knee is not bothering me anymore, it feels a lot better, and all it took was one stretch video. Well, that and resting for the rest of the weekend. It was a small surprise to see that … Continue reading Starting Insanity Month 2

One more week DONE!

We do amazing things when we’re motivated, like yesterday morning for instance, I didn’t hesitate to get out of bed when I heard my alarm. I went straight into my workout. I didn’t have all day to do it like I usually do so I had to hurry and I really couldn’t, or didn’t want … Continue reading One more week DONE!

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?
