  2. lobsteriffic - I had my Tendon Surgery done in June and Ankle Ligament surgery in July..In October I tried to start back up doing Barbell squats and I wasn't ready.I think it put a lot of pressure on my right leg and ended up messing my knee up , doctor had me on Celebrex to help bring down the pain and swelling.It feels better now but all I have done since than is calve raises, leg presses, and lately i started doing DB Goblet Squats..and i also started doing various Pilates like exercises for my leg, Lying Leg raises, side leg raises, putting the band thing around my thighs and walking sidesways (though i am going to look for the one you put around your ankles cause it always moves..

Water Intake 120 oz
  12. Ordered 80 oz worth of Bob's Red Mill Natural Raw Sunflower Seeds and Vega Whole Food Health Optimizer Chocolate..sometimes I get a weird reaction to nuts (especially Almonds) so seeds are usually better for me...Just gotta tell myself to put the bag down after i measure how much i am going to eat..lol I still have to acquire a taste for kale but that is the reason i buy it...I have gotten sick off spinach and broccoli so i am cautious, If I steam broccoli and mix it with something like quinoa or rice i am fine but raw I can get really sick..
  13. faster paced yoga? yoga is suppose to be a mediation practice I wish I could eat spinach, I dunno for some reason my stomach doesn't like it very well..kale works good for me though.
