    Excellent, ergo!

    I did my physical therapy exercises. Since my knee hasn't been hurting, I asked if I can upgrade to using the elliptical. So today I did 5 minutes elliptical, and we'll slowly increase the impact I put on my knee over the next few weeks. In 2 or so weeks, I should be doing a few minutes of treadmill if all goes well.

    I trained last night. I am a bit sick so I only trained lightly. Did upper body.

    I did my exercise program today.
    I used ankle weights for the first time... just to challenge myself.
    I do a whole body work out that includes weights and exercise band...
    stretching and balance work.

    I've stayed in my pj's all day.

    I went for a walk. My knee was hurting a small bit before the walk ... so alas, I may lose elliptical privileges. We'll see.

    That sounds like a good workout! Good idea about the ankle weights, too. It's a great way to burn a few extra calories and subtly work on strength.

    6 months ago, around 30 brave and noble TypeC members embarked on a 6 month challenge of health and exercise. While we all have had our ups and downs, 15 have made it through and successfully completed the challenge. Honestly, this thread turned out to be far more interesting and inspiring than I ever could have hoped for. Thank you to everyone for sharing both your triumphs and your challenges I really had a great time with this.


    Big thanks to you, Udog, for organizing and following up with this .

    Finally felt good enough this week to complete a full workout regimen after the weeks-long annoying sick/cough-spasm thing. On the elliptical thing... I'm thinking about ditching my exercise bike (that I bought 8-9 years ago dirt cheap and is practically falling apart now). Ellipticals are much more expensive, but they might give a better workout too. I run (or try ) a couple of times a week, but in bad weather I think it's a poor idea (ie, my lungs probably shouldn't hurt for hours after running, like they do when I run in 15-degree weather). For anyone who's got an elliptical, do you like it?

    That's very good progress!

    How long does the program last, again?

    Well, basically it lasts until you cancel it. Some of the workouts do have timed "phases" to them. My workout plan actually auto-switched me over to "Phase 2" today when I entered my results, based on the number of workouts I've completed. I read over the first couple weeks of prescribed Phase 2 exercises, said "No way in hell" and manually switched back to Phase 1.

    I did my exercise program last night after work. I was sooooooo exhausted... and weak from a migraine med... but I did it anyway. And I'm glad I did because it made me feel better... at least emotionally.

    When I got home from work, I pulled into my garage and wept in my car... and relished the silence. My 16 year old son eventually got curious as to why I hadn't come into the house and opened the garage door to see what I was doing. He opened my car door and said, "Bad day?" And I burst out laughing... because it reminded me of that scene in Kate & Leopold where Kate is whooping and dancing on the sidewalk and Leopold says, "You seem pleased."

    I did physical therapy yesterday. My hips aren't locking nearly as much as they used to - I'm making progress! Unlike last week, where the elliptical caused my knee to hurt for 2 days, my knee is doing fine today.

    I'm glad you got a good cry out, and then was able to get a laugh out of it.

    Thanks for posting. I hope you remember the emotional boost, and can use it as incentive to work out next time you are feeling a bit down.
