New Year, New Knee (Bootcamp Challenge)
Sunday, January 04, 2009
On December 15th, I went in and received a new, titanium knee. I'm only 30, but my leg was such a mess, I really needed it.
Obviously I'm still recovering, but three weeks later, I'm doing quite well. I always have had a strong desire to exercise, and I want to make sure I don't lose it. On top of the physical therapy, I've added some Pilates. However, I'm thrilled about the Bootcamp Challenge and decided to join.
Of course I'm very limited in my movement, so I really have to be careful that I don't undo the PT by getting into bad movement patterns. I also need to change the exercises so that I can do them without hurting myself.
I don't know that I'll see any changes in my body, but I'm going to track my measurements anyway. I'll also track the bend of my knee. The thigh and calf of each leg is measured separately because I always favored my right leg because of the arthritis, and I would like to even them up.
Measurements for 1/4/08:
Weight: 143 lbs.
