Do you have access to a pool? When a friend of mine was having severe tendon problems in her ankle, she could still swim.

Well if you don’t want to go outside and you don’t want to get a gym membership there really isn’t a whole lot you can do… I’m assuming you don’t have any gym equiptment in your home to work with.

I really would consider re-thinking the gym membership.  Using an elliptical machine would be really good for you.  Your feet stay planted so it’s no impact but you can still get a really great cardio workout which will help you shed pounds.

Also signing up for yoga or pilates classes would probably be good for you as well (which would be included with most gym memberships) since these are both low impact.

Punches, upper body only cardio, shadow boxing… all things you can do when you have a lower body injury.

Look on Craigslist for equipment? I found some cheap treadmills/ellipticals on there previously.

@MrsSl82be – that’s a great deal! I’m not a fan of the elliptical (it makes my knees hurt for some reason) but we have a treadmill at home that my in-laws gave us – before they offered, we had found a couple on craigslist!
