TH, Day 14...

Tuesday, June 14, 2011

I'm still at work, so I haven't actually done my workout yet. I have my videos to do, my games for the Wii Olympics, and the drill for BLC 18. I'd also like to fit in a walk, so I may be up working out till after midnight tonight. lol I'm off tomorrow though, so I'll sleep in.

So I've decided that today will be the day that I decide if I'm going to drop the Tony Horton program. I've got lower body again tonight, and Wednesday, and Thursday. This is the one that kills my knees. I'll do today's and then see how bad my knees are. I hate to quit a challenge, even if its a self-inflicted one. :P I just don't want to hurt myself where I can't work out at all. I've got 3.5 more pounds and I'll have lost 20 since starting my Biggest Loser challenge in 300+ Lbs. Team, and would really like to be physically fit enough to lose AT LEAST that over the next 3 weeks, if not more.

I went through all the challenges I'm involved with and wrote out all the daily and weekly things I have to do for them. Hopefully this will make it less hectic than yesterday was. :P I thought I'd give myself a twitch, trying to keep everything straight yesterday! Hopefully now that I'm a little more organized, I can make it all work. This, of course, would be another tick in the Pro column for stopping the 10-Minute Trainer challenge. Decisioins, decisions!

I have a question for everyone today. I'm looking for exercise programs that can be performed in a wheelchair. Everything from upper body, to lower body, to core and for varying degrees of paralysis. Does anybody have any ideas on what to do or where to look? Any help would be greatly appreciated, and the sooner the better! Sorry for the rush, but we're under time constraints. Thank you in advance for any help you can give me!

Well, its almost time to head home, so let me get my work finished and get packed up for the day. hehehe It sounds like I'm taking a trip. I have to finish packing! Okay, I know I'm tired because I just amused myself.

Alright, really going now! I'll let everyone know what I decide about my challenge. I guess you'll know if my blog tomorrow isn't named TH, Day 15. We'll see.

    Hey honey!! Don't worry bout that stupid Tony Horton, you got a million other things going on! You are not quitting because you're a quitter, you are simply stopping it because you don't want your injury to get any worse, there's a BIGGGGG difference there! Awesome job on making it to almost 20 lbs on your BLC I am sure you will reach that this Monday, if not more!!! So, where's this trip you speak of, Maybe you could head to Missouri to see me and Tisha! lol! Hope you enjoyed your relaxing bath and got to sleep in this morning! Let me know if your knee is feeling any better today! K, enjoy your day off, talk to you soon, I'm sure! :)

    I completely understand what you mean about the lower body workouts. My knees are not very good, so I'm extra careful about the lower body exercises that I do. It is better to quit than to hurt yourself and not be able to do your other workouts. It's not like you are quitting working out, you are just quitting those workouts.

    I'm sorry that I can't really help about wheelchair workouts. The best I could do is google it, but like anyone, the person should probably consult a doctor before starting to workout. I'm not saying that I did, though. LOL I do know I should have. Sorry I wasn't any help with that.

    Have a great day 3 of BLC18!

    Well even though it's sad to quit a workout, it's better than injury! I had to cut waaaay back on Jillian Michael's workouts, because they were killing my knees with all the repetitive lunges.

    As for wheelchair workouts... I don't really know much, but I keep hearing about chair dancing.
