Damaged Knee Won't Stop Me!

It's been 1.5 years since my knee reconstruction surgery following an injury in early 2012. Despite having worked hard throughout physical therapy and exercise to regain over 90% of my flexibility and strength, I'm still struggling to push through the doubts I have about my abilities. Sometimes the knee becomes a self-imposed limit. I'm trying to change that!

Fitness Minutes: 31,113

My Goals:
- Reach my weight goal by June 24, 2014.

- Eat something green every day. Green gummy bears don't count!

- Cut down on my sugar intake. Began the Tame Your Sweet Tooth Challenge on January 1, 2014.

- Be able to do the splits

- Learn to do a handstand

- Declutter my life by selling or donating my excess possessions

- Be more mindful of what I do buy. Is it a want or a need? What resources went into making it? Was it made locally? Is it build to last? Can I buy it secondhand?

My Program:
Visit the gym on my lunch break 5 days per week for 60 minutes: 30 minutes cardio and 30 minutes stele entry training (rotating through focus on arms, legs, and core). Yoga at home at least 2 times per week to improve flexibility and focus.

Personal Information:
Filmmaker, traveler, foodie, French-speaking novice

Other Information:
Quality and flavor of foods are very important to me. I do not eat at chain restaurants or fast food joints. If food tastes the same everywhere, it's not an experience! I grow some of my own food in my small backyard during the summer. I cook most meals from scratch.

I vote with my dollars, and prefer to support local farmers and establishments over "organic" products shipped from halfway around the world.

Hello! I have a bad knee, too, but not to the same degree as yours - not at all. (I haven't had knee reconstruction surgery.) But, I want to follow your progress both to encourage you and to get some ideas myself.

Keep it up!

How are you doing these days? Haven't seen you around here much. Hopefully you're keeping busy, having fun, and busting out some goals ;)
