Holy sh!t I haven't added to this thread in a month. I promise I have been working out. I have incorporated spinning classes here and there b/c I need more intense cardio that doesn't bother my ankle. Here's what I did this past week:
monday: ran 2 miles, 30 min stairmaster
tuesday: 40 min stairmaster, 2 hrs later extremely intense spinning class
wednesday: point sparring
thurs. more point, annoying jump rope pushups situps
fri. run & stair (I forgot times)
sat. ran 2 miles, 30 min stairmaster

Yes, I know I need to start lifting again.

Spinning is cycling at varying intervals and resistance settings on a stationary bike. If the teacher is good, which mine is, it will work you out. My cardio conditioning is pretty good and I'm always sweating hard and my heart is pounding. I went today for an hour to add to my training log. It's good cardio for people who have had a lower joint injury like me.

Get lots of rest, make sure you're eating healthy, and go back into it a little slower than your used to.

Definitely focus on drinking lots of water and also eating healthy, but also focus on making progress with your cardio. For instance, try running for 10 minutes straight on a treadmill, then add a minute every day or so. So it would end up looking something like this:

Day One - 10 min run on treadmill
Day Two - 10 min run on treadmill
Day Three - 11 min run on treadmill
Day Four - 12 min run on treadmill

etc, etc. I did this kind of method with my friend and he progressed really quickly, just always aim for progress! A good way to think about it would be to try and be a little bit better than the day before, no matter how small of a change it is

does that mean I have to eat 4 cups of vegetables bleahh

Does vodka count as a vegetable since it's made from potatoes?

I'm going to go to the calorieking website and find out what I need to eat to reach my dream weight of 115. I'm 5'6" but that weight might be doable for me b/c my frame is small.

Also, should I even be consuming whey protein? is it a protein alternative, or meant to be a weight gainer?
