Setback? Not if I can help it!

Tuesday, December 04, 2012

So I tweaked my knee last night while I was doing Zumba. Had a Dr.'s appointment this morning and I'm going in for an MRI to see if my meniscus is torn. Whether it is or it isn't, I'm not going to let this little setback keep me from reaching my goals. I'm still allowed to walk, to do stationary bike exercise and to lift weights (upper body only for now). So that's what I'll do. There are plenty of exercises I can do to get my fitness minutes in, and gosh darnit, I'm going to do them! Fingers crossed for a good MRI result,

    Thank you so much everyone! I did walk on the treadmill tonight for 30 minutes and yes, Erin, I did some ab work! I also did some upper body work and a little Tai Chi. I'm on track for my calories today.

I predict that I did not actually tear my meniscus, but I do think that I have been wearing the wrong shoes to do zumba, so I ordered a pair of zumba dance shoes today so that this will not happen again! A pair of shoes costs less than a knee!

    Best of luck to you on the MRI. I love to do Zumba but let me tell you, I have had more injuries doing that than any other exercise. It is fun but it may not be that easy on our bodies.

    You don't need your knees to do ab holds! I busted my knee pretty badly the summer before last and still kept going with lifting light weights and doing core moves. Hang in there! As they say, "abs are made in the kitchen."
