GL - some good advice above... another idea - do pilates - a lot of the moves will be off your feet and that way you are building core strength, which a lot of times effects our balance and prevents injuries by providing stability and balance. I use neoprene braces for my knees, which act up from time to time - I agree they are very good for keeping the joint warm so when you're working out it prevents further injury, however I think you need to focus on letting that baby heal first. Doctor knows best...follow their orders! This is also an excellent time to work on your upper body strength. When you're starting out, you should strength train 3 days a week, 3 sets of light weight doing 12 reps a set. Once your form is solid, about a month later, you can then start doing less reps and higher weight for strength purposes. Hope you don't give up on the exercise challenge... this is just a good time for you to look at a new door opening bc when you're back on your feet, imagine... you'll be farther ahead then where you left off!

Hey everyone,
I know you are all continuing on with your successful exercise challenge! I didn't get a chance to do my walking today...so many things happening. But, that's okay, got in some aerobics, and DH fixed my flat tire so I can start riding. Will pick up tomorrow and continue to succeed!
I'm also very excited because I am soda free now for 4 days. I know that's not much, but when you're downing 3-4 sodas a day, that's a big accomplishment. No more caffeine withdrawals. Yeah!

Thanks Full Steam Ahead,
Took my kids to Carl's Jr. after the baseball game and ordered a salad and a soda...completely out of habit. Realized what I did and turned in my cup and ordered a water instead. It felt so good, especially since I didn't get any Exercise in today.
Not a problem...tomorrow is just around the corner.

Keep up the great workouts!!

Thumbs up You Totally Rock!!!

I see everyone is sticking to their goals as much as possible. Keep posting everyone, it's gives the rest of us incentive!

I feel that if you can do it, I can do it. If I can do it, you definitely can do it.

I've been a SAHM for 10 years now and haven't done a lick of exercise in at least 5 years. Thanks for being part of this challenge. At the end of the month or even sooner, you will see that it was so worth the effort!

Keep on exercising!

Man, I just can't seem to get any bike riding into my exercise program like I was hoping. Oh well, I'm keeping up on my walking and aerobics...if I can squeeze biking in, that will just be a bonus at this time.

Keep on exercising everyone.

Take it one day at a time, success is just around the corner!
