    Have you replaced the air filter recently?

    My knee is hurting and I didn't even work out this weekend. Strange. I also appear to have a miserable cold. I'm still doing my workout since I took off last Friday. I don't want to lose my momentum.

    On a good note, I took another group of pics and I do have a noticeable difference - compared to the first day of the challenge. I've only lost about 5 pounds, but I know when I work out I build muscle so I don't drop weight like I do if I just diet.

    If your knee is hurting now. You may have hurt it at least a couple of days before the weekend. Is it a deep pain? Or is it more like the muscles around you knee are just sore?

    Suggestion. Give your knee a little more time to recover. Find something to do that places less stress on it.

    Yeah, I watched it, it's not like a joint pain. Sometimes my joints can get out of whack and click, it wasn't doing that.

    I finished for the day.

    Elaur, 5 pounds in 5 weeks is respectable. The fact that you can see the difference is huge as well.

    I agree with Biaxident. That's why we don't use cheats for injuries, in fact. Proper recovery is that important.

    Remember, we are aiming for long term change here. Part of long term change is sometimes sacrificing the short term so your body can properly recover. You have all of us here to give you a violent friendly push to help you regain momentum if you lose it while recovering.

    EDIT: Hah, too late - you already worked out! Well, if it's still hurting tomorrow it's always an option.

    On that note, I skipped the gym this morning. I hurt my calf yesterday (sharp pain, not sore pain), and it was still hurting this morning. I'll try to start back up tomorrow.

    Ask Halla about working through the pain. The man has put several surgeon's children through college.

    I completed my week again. Curiously, still no additional weight loss since the 8 pounds I lost the first week...four weeks holding steady on weight. I hope it's because I'm building muscle instead of that my workout is not rigorous enough.

    On the bright side, my workout is progressing. The first week I started with 30 minutes on the treadmill, 10 pushups, and 20 crunches. I'm up to 35 minutes on the treadmill with incline added, 30 pushups, and 40 crunches. In the coming weeks I'm going to look into mixing up the workout with some lunges, squats and other stuff. Six weeks seems to be about the time to mix it up.

    For the experienced people, a question...I have some 5 lb dumbbells an old roommate left. Would they serve any purpose for a large framed man, or are they too light to make any difference? I was thinking at high numbers of reps maybe they could tone, but I don't know. I'm not interested in bulging muscles, just building strength.
