Whole lot of talk

Thursday, August 16, 2012

So, I found out yesterday (even though i guess I knew it all along) that I can not run on my knee. For now, walking for exercise is even a no go- until I can get it calmed down and strengthened around it. This is really hard for me, because I know how running used to make me feel and what it did for my body. I don't know why I am so resistant to trying other things...right now it just seems hard to do. I am going to try to be on here as much as I can, and a good freind of mine is a Beachbody coach as well. I have been using this knee as an excuse for a liong time. I don't want to be in pain anymore- so I have to stop and listen to what I have been told. But at the same tiem, I need to lose opunds to amke my knee feel better! I want to be inspired, motiviated, happy again. There seems to be somethign missing....
Today i will go to Aquafit- i missed tuesday due to a meeting runnign late over an hour away from home. I have a PT that is very good, I already love the way he approaches and explains things. he is going to help me get biking! I need to start saving for decent equipment.
Enough for now, i should be working. emoticon

    Keep up the good work. I injured my knee three years ago and used it as an excuse to gain 50 pounds. So, now I am doing the work to get back where I was. I love the mantra: No looking back, only moving forward!

    I just wanted you to know, that I just started sparking - four days ago - I'm almost 300 pounds and reading your story really inspired me. Working out is hard for me - I had an ankle rebuilt (metal and pig ligaments) in 2004, and the doctor is looking at a knee surgery soon.

    Here's the deal - I know there are ways to do this even with my body's limits - my drive has no limits.

    Thanks for keeping up your blogs and posts. You've been really inspiring today.

    Sounds like a plan... Do you have a special mantra or saying??? I've found that helps me when I'm very discouraged... Just keep posting, and talking out the fears, and frustrations, soon you'll be telling us about your renewed mobility, and how awesome it feels to be able to walk again!!! Baby steps are hard, but sitting on your hands is even harder... you can do this!!! It'll take time... listen to your body. If it says rest then, rest, and when it says i'm ready... be prepared to be amazed!!! You sound like you have the spirit and the will to succeed... and it sounds like you have tons of support... or at least tons of Spark people support... we're cheering you on!!!
    One of my mantra's is:

    I believe I shape my future. Whether I fail or succeed shall be no man's doing but my own. I am the force; I can clear any obstacle before me or I can be lost in the maze. My choice; my responsibility; win or lose, only I hold the key to my destiny. No excuses..

    (I got it from another sparker.. but forgot to write down who... so I'm passing it forward)...

    Have you tried biking instead? My biking buddy had painful knee injuries that prevented her from running, but thankfully for me she bikes now instead! She still gets to enjoy the great outdoors~the wind in her hair~and we have a GREAT time!
