Update: Just had my first baby in September and am anxious to get back to working out on a regular basis. I miss those endorphins!

I'm a 20-something professional who got married in September 2006. I have gained back almost all the weight I lost for the wedding. I was working with a personal trainer and had made changes in my diet by watching what I ate and eating more balanced meals. I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis in my knees in January 2007 and it has helped re-motivate me to lose weight again. I saw a physical therapist for a while to help me with my misaligned kneecaps which contributes to my knee pain. Losing 10 pounds in 2006 helped me realize that I can definitely do this and I'm looking forward to doing it all again.

My Goals:
Gain muscle and lose fat and have less knee pain.

Conquer the 55-miler in the Harlem Valley Rail Ride in July 2008.

Improve my speed to 15 mph.

Improve my core strength.

Improve my posture.

Hop on the bike at least 3 times a week and all other days I better be doing one of my DVDs and/or working out my abs/core.

Be able to bend forward from my waist and touch the floor with the palms of my hands while keeping my legs straight.

My Program:
The program that worked for me: I weight trained with a trainer two times a week for an hour. We alternated between lower and upper body. I did cardio at least 3 times a week but had been averaging about 4. I typically gave myself one day where I don't go to the gym a week. I find that going to the gym first thing in the morning keeps me on track and I am NOT a morning person by any means. If I can do it, so can you.

Current Program: Cycling indoors and out

    Congratulations to your husband and you both. Allie is beautiful.

    It looks as if both of us were missing in action for a while. You have a better excuse! Mine was knee...but I like you excuse better!

    Lets jump back into this and take it to the end.

    Great to hear from you. I haven't been on the bike a great deal this summer, I'm still running. However, I believe my doctor plans to put an end to that on Thursday. I've been working a great deal, so I definitely understand what you mean about work.

    Sounds like it's time for us to tune the old challenge back up. I haven't recorded miles in ages. I have recorded them on them running log but not on our challenge. Are you ready to gear back up?


    ----I'm also ready for some VT football!
