A Brand New Day……….

After Monday’s fiasco I decided to sit back and reevaluate my situation. First thing I thought about was how much my knees are hurting. Nothing is helping relieve the pain. Not icing them, popping pain killers,……… Nada!!! So, as much as I hate to do this I have to quit Insanity…..for a moment that is. When I feel my knees are back to normal I will continue where I left off with Insanity. When I get to my 1st goal of 170lbs I will see a doctor about them. I just don’t want to face any bad news about needing to have surgery right now. I am 13lbs from my main goal and I don’t want to be laid up gaining the weight I’ve lost back!

Monday’s Workout- Insanity Fit Test Spin & Abs
Tuesday- Spin and Arms Strength Training
Today- Yoga, Abs & Spin

I also weighed in yesterday and saw a 1.8lbs lost. I’m thinking that the gain on Monday was from the Sunday’s Insanity workout. Your muscles tend to swell when you work them out, which can cause a fluctuation in weight! So, when I did pure cardio on Monday I was dying to see if that was the reason. I was happy to see the scale go down but, am not going to dwell on it…. For real, I’m not! I have a new workout plan that I will be sticking to until my knees are feeling 100% better.
I have been eating clean and with good proportions. I have to work more veggies into my health menu. I drank an average of 12 cups of water a day and take a multi vitamin. I was coffee free 1 day this week! LOL!!! I know! I know!….. pitiful. I will get it down to 3days a week…. I hope!

Thanks guys for sticking with me, leaving me feed back and for all the Anniversary shout outs! I appreciate it so much! J I hope you all are having a great week so far! Keep On Pushing!

Girl rest those knees!
1.8 is a good loss and you can supplement your insanity workouts with something much easier on your joints. Long walks...and sit-ups, pushups...ab ball work maybe?
Just some suggestions.

Nice work on the loss! i am sad to hear that your knees are hurting. I hope that they feel better soon so you can get back on track. A rest is always good.

You're doing really great. Don't worry about this little "setback." Rest your knees. Maybe you can work your upper body like I did when I couldn't run! You'll be surprised how much you work your heart when you throw punches!

Thank you Ladies for your kind and encouraging words! It is not over until I say it's over! :D

M- That's exactly what I'm doing upper body strength training! I did it yesterday & I feel the pain all in my shoulders, arms & upper back! I must be doing something right! :D

Insanity was too much for my knees as well. I plan to start it again but with moderation. Take care of your knees. Nice Blog!
