I just had a thought...maybe my actual knee isn't the problem, even though that's where it hurts.
My beau has extreme and constant pain over his shoulder and down his arm....after a couple of years of misdiagnosis' we found out that he has cervical spinal stenosis and we are to the point now of waiting for surgery for him to correct this....its the nerves that begin in his neck/spinal column, that are being pinched and causing the pain that actually hits in his arm.
When I got up this morning, my back was sore....I have bulging disc in between L4-L5 and L5-S1....I also have a lot of trouble with my sciatic nerve....that begins there and where does it run? From my behind, down my legs! That stupid nerve runs right behind the knee!
Of course I will wait to be sure of what the xrays and stuff say when I go to the doctor again, but if they don't turn up anything definite, I will bring up the problem with my sciatic and see what he thinks about that.
In the meantime, I can work on my back issues and get the right stretches done for that problem and if nothing else, I can get some relief there!

Walked a mile in the pool in the 4 ft section, lol, I can do a mile outside in about 20 minutes...in the pool it took an hour and 15 minutes!
My knee is ok I think, its been sore all day and now its tired too, but I haven't got that sharp pain that I had before.
Wonder if I burned that more calories. Tomorrow is a walk outside since the gym is closed and maybe whippin some tail on horseshoes on the kinect...
Enjoy your weekend and the Olympics, if you are watching them!

I haven't been sleeping well this week and with worrying and dealing with my knee and being in some pain, all the stuff going on at work....when I got home from work tonight, I made a bad decision followed by a worse one.
I had planned on taking our gym account off hold today and hitting the pool this evening, but I forgot that the gym closes at 6 on Fridays and we don't get off until 6.
We had a big storm that came through late this afternoon and the stoplights were out right at 5pm so traffic was a nightmare, it took probably 20 minutes to get home instead of the usual 5 minutes. By the time we got home and I put up the little bit of groceries that I bought before collecting my beau from work, it just hit me.
I'm tired of not sleeping.
I'm tired of feeling like I have to babysit myself all the time.
Sometimes I wish I could just be a normal person.
I am worn out from end of the month stuff at work along with the stress of our company being broken up and sold and hopefully still having a job after August 20.
I am tired of babying my knee and I am tired of this pity party I have been wallowing in all day.
Bad decision....giving in to being worn out and tired.
Worse decision....ordering pizza after feeling extra hungry today AND forgetting to specify thin crust.
Worst decision....letting my guard down, letting the bad habits sneak back in and eating 3 slices of said pizza without even thinking about it.
I have been sitting here feeling like I have a rock in my stomach and my heart has been pounding away like crazy.
Although I was bordering on full, I waited a little bit and ate some cold watermelon which has helped settle things a bit. At least it cut the grease from the pizza anyways and settled my stomach.
Why I let my guard down, ESPECIALLY on the night before weigh-day, I have no idea. I had weigh day scheduled specifically on Saturday mornings because we usually have a night out on Saturday or Sunday night, which gives me a week to correct any mistakes.
It has been a long week, a lax week, a frustrating week full of ups and downs, and thank God its over!
I logged, blogged and now I am movin' on!
I WILL get sleep tonight, I WILL get to the pool tomorrow, and I WILL either get on the Kinect or get out for a walk on Sunday!
I'm NOT normal and that's not necessarily a bad thing, I have my beau who loves me for me and my family and my friends too.
I have made progress so far and will continue to reach my goals.
I GOT THIS!

Good news from the doctor, I can still exercise...as my knee tolerates, so it will be back to the gym and the pool for us for awhile...Got another steroid shot, JEEZ, my doctor loves those steroids, but they burn me up! I went for x-rays too for my knee and hip (that I was supposed to have x-rayed last week) I also got a huge painkiller shot and just finished sleeping it off.
When he asked if anything happened to my knee, I told him that my fat happened to it and maybe I was too big to run and he told me that was nonsense. He is such a good doctor!
Its 9pm and I am just finishing dinner but I got to use my new taco bowl pans tonight for dinner...note to self...don't be a calorie nazi and get the bigger tortilla shells! They were more like little cups, so I had two of them, lol!
Yummy though, I made shredded chicken and mixed in the leftover pulled pork and added taco seasoning, filled up each bowl with 1/4 cup meat, 1tbs shredded cheese, some garden spring mix, and slice of avocado and a squeeze of lime, YUM!
