Knee NewsPosted: January 21, 2010
Sorry for the no show last night. News from the Doc was not the best, but not the worst and I just didn’t really feel like plugging in after all of that.
Basically I had irritated soft tissue in my knee that can only get better with doing NOTHING. I even asked about yoga and he said, no. The one thing I can do is swim, which I am bad at and cannot afford to join another gym just for a pool considering they are much more expensive and I can’t break my current contract without serious fees. I am basically only allowed to walk where I HAVE to walk when I HAVE to walk. After A MONTH if there is still pain I have to get an MRI and maybe a scope.
Not moving is going to be the most challenging. I am an active person! On the bright side this will give me plenty of time to concentrate on helping BARCS, which starts on Saturday. I may also look into some other volunteer opportunities. I HATE coming home from work at 4:30PM and having nothing to do.
Anyway here is a quick run down of the eats yesterday + about 2 servings on H2H that I consumed in nervous eating before my appointment.
In my wrap was hummus, spinach, egg, olives, avocado and cilantro.
Clems + seltzer + those cups of Kashi H2H…
Due to my excessive snacking I had a small dinner to round out my day.
I fell asleep on the couch around 8:30pm (Sorry I didn’t call you back mom!)
This morning I watched some early morning tennis.
I also made myself some oat bran for breakfast. 1/3 cup: oat bran, water, skim, plain Stonyfield. 1 tbs chia and flax, 1 small banana, black berries, sprinkle vanilla almond crunch granola, DCPB. Food Rule will come with dinner. I have run out of time! I still have to drop off the recycling! Yikes!
