Take it easy on that knee KIDDO or I'm calling your dad! It obviously isn't tracking correctly.

Today is my 10th ANNIVERSARY of not smoking so I did 3.5 miles of treadmill to celebrate that!

Tomorrow is another anniversary for me! See you then

mandalinn, I am so sorry you are having such a hard times with your knee. I hope it get's better soon. Maybe Swimminmg can help you get your fix, or does that hurt too?

I was going to go to the Community center for Water Aerobic's and then some laps, but apparently, the man didn't put enough gas in the truck for me to do anything other than carry the boy back and forth to school. WTH is up with that? Trying to keep me prisoner or something? lol I'll have a speaking with his butt about this tonight. Yeah, I could go get gas myself, but then I wouldn't have the $$ to go to the pool. Soooooooooo....I guess I am going to do the WATP's thing today, except I am going to break it up into 2 or 3 thirty minute workouts.

I had a speaking with my Doc the other day, and explained that I have been counting my calories, and working out 3 to 4 day's a week (unless sick or hurt), and I have been struggling with the SAME 6 lbs for 3 freakin' months! GRRRR She said that maybe I could try breaking my workouts up, and instead of doing an entire hour (or so) @ one time, break it up and do 30 minutes in the morning and then another later... She say's this might help me speed up the metabolism. So That's what I am going to do. The goal is morning and Lunch time, and maybe, if energy and time permits, another 30 in the afternoon's around 4'ish. Wish me luck.


Edit:
Morning:

30 minutes- WATP - 2 Miles
Lunchtime:
30 minutes WATP - Aerobics & Strength training

30 min in the pool. 50 min strength training.

80 min frustration and pain. But I guess that would be double-counting

How many calories do frustration and pain burn, anyway? Does it have to be physical pain, or will psychic and intellectual pain count too? I'd hate to think there are calories I'm burning that I'm not counting.

OK, I just need to vent. Bear with me.

I've been good. I've done NO impact exercise, limiting myself only to swimming, and then only a couple of times. I've done no LB lifting. I've gone slowly up stairs, taking two steps per step, just to make sure I'm not hurting it. I've iced every 3 hours, for 30 minutes, I've compressed, I've rested, I've elevated. I went to an MRI, and have the films (but no ortho appt until Wednesday...he was totally booked up).

Why does it hurt worse? I'm in some SERIOUS pain here, and I've been so good! I hate having restricted myself to this degree, only to have it get worse anyway.

UGH.

Argh. How frustrating. Are you taking regular ibuprofen to keep the swelling down? It sounds as though you're going to have to suck up the lack of exercise until you can get to the orthopedist, even though that will make you miserable. Truly blowing out your knee will also make you miserable, but for longer, so be careful.

I'm going to go lift now. At least that will make me feel like I did something.

40 min arm workout. It was intense. I'm referring to it as "punishing my arms since i can't punish my knee".

My doctor phoned but since I've been housesitting, I didn't get the message until after he was gone. But since a) he called personally, b) he would have received the MRI report, and c) he knew that I had an ortho appt on Wed and didn't have plans on doing anything but getting the MRI authorized and having me carry the films to the ortho, I can't imagine this is good news. What doctor calls personally to say "your test was normal!".
