emoticon emoticon emoticon ... you are on fire!!!!! I love it!

I am doing ok. Today I am eating "ALL" the wrong things.... starting over "FOR SURE" tomorrow. I am doing a reset with my Paleo Lifestyle team and starting an exercise routine as well. I will review the pilates arc dvd today so that I can do it tomorrow. I will also review some of my spinning workouts and try to do one tomorrow... but if I don't do that I can do lots of other workouts that will not stress my knee. I am wearing the brace and it is keeping it stable for now. But I have gained quite a bit of weight back... just losing weight I feel will help my knee out tremendously.

Great for you taking vacation for a week!!!! I think it will energize you. It's good to take a break.

Keep up the good work.... I am looking forward to getting started.

Enjoy your day and I will check in with you tomorrow.

Hi Nancy, thanks for stopping by... I am glad to hear that you are still working out and that you like it.

Well, I got the Pilates Arc and I think I am going to really like it... I tried a few exercises on it and it hits all of the core muscles. I will check out the video soon.

Nutritionally, am going to start over officially on March 1st, Sunday. I am gaining weight and I feel miserable. Not good! emoticon Not going to dwell on it, but I wanted to let you know.

I will try to get in a real workout this weekend, I am feeling like I want to now I just have to force myself to do a workout and I think once I do one workout, I'll be on my way!!!!

Well, getting ready to turn in but wanted to touch bases with you. I really emoticon too and working out with you, but it will get better, I am working my way back!

Have a nice night! emoticon emoticon

Hi Nancy,

... sounds like a great program. I am glad that you are starting. I have not yet started anything, just seems like I am having a hard time. My right knee is also giving me problems, it slips or catches at times... no swelling or pain otherwise. I am wearing a knee brace when I am out of the house because I don't want this to happen when I am not at home. So far this week when I take the brace off at home it hasn't slipped. I think that I twisted it because I notice that when I turn at times I am not making a complete turn and I can sometimes feel this in my knee. I have to make an effort to make sure my feet are turning right.... I know that sounds crazy, but I can't explain it I would have to show you. Anyway, the exercises that I found for this condition which I narrowed down to Patellar Tracking Disorder and the at home treatment for it is to do exercises to increase strength and flexibility in your leg and hip... strengthening the quads, hamstrings, etc., but not doing squats and lunges right away. So since I have a pilates reformer I will do leg presses with resistance and I also have a weight bench with a leg extension attachment, so I can do weighted leg extensions and also lying weighted, hamstring/glute raises. I should do beginning, intermediate and advanced, maybe it will take about 1 - 2 months to strengthen those areas... but at any rate I have to do it and if it doesn't improve I will make an appointment with my doctor. The only reason I am not going to the doctor now is because there is no visible swelling and I don't have any pain in the knee at all until that happens ... and then it will hurt but then quickly go away, so I am hoping that I caught it early enough that I heal this conservatively without surgery.

I'm telling you, it's always something. If I start now I should be able to do the kettle bell rotation and I can modify if needed.

It's been a roller-coaster of emotions with me since Jazzi died. I am getting better, but I will never get over losing her. I think that when I get another dog, perhaps in the spring, that will help a lot because right now I miss the companionship of having a pet.

I ordered something to go along with my pilates reformer, it's called the Pilates Arc and it is great for ab exercises and other pilates based exercises, this is how it looks:

... I should get it today or tomorrow... Well, my break is over, I will talk to you later.

Hi Nancy, sorry to hear you are having a rough time too. I don't know why but we seem to be in sync most of the time. No need to apologize because as you know I have been having a hard time with the passing of Jazzi and I have not exercised at all, other than walking... so I totally understand, and I feel bad that I could not keep up with you.

.... ok, so that being said, moving forward since you start your program in 2 weeks and it will run 4 weeks, I figure that would be a total of 6 weeks (... March 24th being the end of your 6 weeks?) This is fine because in this period of time I can get back into the swing of things.

Here are some starting dates for the RKS rotation:

March 30
April 6

Can you pick or suggest a date that we can commit to, as best we can right now. I am recovering from a cold but hope to start working out over the weekend. I will do P90 B & C rotation within the 6 week period and go from there.

Let me know your thoughts on this when you get a chance.

~ Dee

PS: I agree with you on the coaching program, if I could afford it I would do something like that myself. I may be able to do so in the future. I think it will be good for you. I would love for us to still check in with each other despite the fact that we will be doing different programs for motivation, if that's ok with you. emoticon
