  1. So in good news, my knee is improving rapidly. I still can't straighten my leg fully, but I am no longer limping. After my first month of treatment with the chiro, I have a whole set of daily exercises which I need to work into my daily routine. This has meant abandoning my 6 week challenges for the short term. I will pick up the next one and have a much better idea of what I can achieve. I am really feeling the benefit so this is good. In the meantime I'm doing Spinal Hygiene Exercises (basic stretches) twice a day, Posture 7 stretch for 1 minute a go and trying for 5 of them throughout t
  2. So I've clearly abandoned this quest, but it was for a bigger quest that came along. After a couple of visits to a chiropractor it was clear my posture is well off and that and my lopsided over pronation means that I have to take a new quest: getting my posture back on track. Back to the drawing board!
  3. Sounds like a great first week! Breaking that computer habit can be quite a challenge - congratz!
  4. Good going - I was going to ask what Curves was. Thanks for the explanation! I've been using MyFitnessPal for over a year, but not continuously. I like the recent changes and I'm finding it easily to keep tracking now than I was previously.
  5. Welcome back! I never know any of the songs either, but I enjoy reading what you're listening too!
  6. Week 1 mini complete - +1 Wisdom Week 2 mini - I need to sort my paperwork for my company. I shall tackle that this week! Purge ahead!
  7. Did you catch the series about the history of dance -Dancing Cheek to Cheek? I thought the episode on the Charlestone was really interesting!
  8. Week 1 summary: Total points: 14 Rating C While not great, I have definitely had improvement in knee mobility, fitness, and weight/body fat. So a gentle win. Week 1 mini: Targets were SMART, so +1 WIS attained and added!
  9. I love the Fitbit. I've been wearing it for a year constantly and it's just the gentle reminder I need. I cranked it right down to 3000 steps last year and increased it steadily. It survived me capsizing and bobbing in the ocean, although the contacts needed a clean up with alcohol wipe. I am on my second strap though. I do tend to fiddle with it and broke the first one. Luckily I'd picked up a number of fancy spares now. Been through the teal and now have the orange one on
  10. W2 day 3 steps: 5,862 exercise: knee is quite sore today so rested. But I have more mobility in it than I have for weeks so improving diet: Paleo! Made a paleo coconut fish curry. 2 points! Total points :2 Running Total: 5 points
  11. W2 day 2 Steps:13, 646 nailed it! 1 point Exercise: no point scoring but I did get to the gym. I'd just made my 10k steps before I started so 20 mins of walking contributed the extra, and 10 mins on elliptical trainer. but the knee was sorer so I went easier than 2 days previously. Diet:Low carb homemade chilli 1 point Total points: 2 points Running Total: 3 points
  12. I hope that your chiropractor helps - I'm interested to hear how it goes!
  13. Week 3 day1 Started with a first visit to a chiropractor. Turns out that not only do I over probate, which I'vebeen using inserts for for 2.5 years, but it's much more pronounced in my left foot. Along with pronounced forward head position there are a couple of things I'm going to need working on this year. W2 day 1 Steps: 9,586 almost, again! Exercise: none, my knee was sore and immobile by the end of the day Diet: homemade chilli, low carb but not paleo due to kidney beans 1 point Points: 1 point Running total: 1 point
  14. So points wise not awesome in week 1 but I did actually make progress. The knee is noticeable more mobile, and can take more weight. My stats also changed: Weight down 0.6 kg Body fat down 0.9% Overall I think this bodes well. I had a chiropractor session on Monday too, so I'm looking at attacking the underlying problems
  15. Day7 Steps: 8,309 Exercise: 1 complete rep of BBWW and that was after the gym. 1 point. At the gym I did 25 mins faster walking on the treadmill and 10 mins on elliptical trainer Diet:low carb so 1 point- roast pork leg with veg. Did have swede and small slice of bread Total points : 2 points Running total 14 points
