My knee report was not good. Not good at all. The Dr. said that my ACL allograph didn't take and that I was pretty much functioning with no ACL. It is still in my knee and attached but it is not serving in function. I was given a few options, first we will be trying a ACL brace for stability. I have to go back and see Dr. Ortho after a month with the brace. If that doesn't work the only other options are surgery. Orthoscopic surgery is the first option but there are all these factors that go into it....it could end up being 2 surgeries and 9 months of recovery. Needless to say that didn't make me happy but now the hope is that the brace will work fine until I can find 9 months to do nothing but sit on my butt and gain back all the weight I have lost.
I told you I would update you so there you go. It could have been worse!

I am hoping to get to the gym again tonight but I am not sure it will happen I have had a pretty busy day and it does not look like it will be getting any better any time soon.
And I had my MRI today and I don't know anything yet. It will be Tuesday before I have results.

I was going to let you all know the reason I didnt post too much last week is I was trying out rest as a solution for the knee. It was unsuccessful so I'm back to two a day workouts. If it had felt better I would have probably just stuck with one really intense workout but I find it easier to get in 2 shorter intense workouts in the day. Just an update for you.
Then we did weights and abs on the Bosu ball as well. By the time we were done with the Bosu my ball was soaking wet. Ever time i leaned over the ball the sweat would just pour off my head and hair. It was pretty nasty. Then we had to do football drills and up downs as part of the class as well. I'm telling you it was, WOW!
Then yesterday I had Zumba at 4 and then cardio burn again at 5. I did Zumba and I am pretty sure the air conditioning was not working in the aerobics room because it felt like 700 degrees. I only did half the second class and went home to mow my yard before the rain continues again. When I got home, I was hurting my my knee and hip, and after about 3 hours I had a killer headache. I finally just went to bed...I'm all better this morning and will be back at the gym tonight.
BTW- My workout buddy told me I could wash my shoes and they would be dry by the next morning...not so much. I just hope they finish drying by this afternoon otherwise I will be wearing wet shoes.

I have not forgotten about my blog, I just really haven't had that much to share lately. I told you all my knee was hurting and then last weekend my hip started hurting really bad. So I have taken it pretty easy this week to see if I was just re-aggravating it by working out. Well it still hurts so I am going back to full speed working out. Other than that nothing really has happened this week.
Ill keep you posted.
