New School Year, New motivation to Exercise

I just had an appointment with my physiatrist (not to be confused with phycologist), who talked about the possibility of me maybe getting another set of botox injections in my achilles tendons, my hamstrings, and my hip flexors. Although, if I seem to become looser in the next few months I will not have to get botox. Brilliant! =)

So here's the plan:

1). Once a week a will go to my regularly scheduled Pilates session (maybe twice a week if i can a duet with one of my friends).
2). i will work out at the gym 2-3 times a week, in addition to my Pilates, using the treadmill and the elliptical machine.
3). I will wear my knee brace for a few hours a day and one of my splints each night.
4). I will stretch daily.

I think i found a new set of workout songs by Angus and Julia Stone. Their music is relaxing, simple, and beautiful! My three favorite songs of theirs: Paper Aeroplane, Mango Tree, and Big Jet Plane.

Here are my two questions, does anybody have a favorite brand of knee brace? Also, what are some of your favorite weight-bearing exercises?
