Ah, Dang it!

Thursday, January 31, 2013

emoticon I don't even know what I did, but I've somehow injured my knee. This is the same knee I've hurt three times in the past, only this time it's on the back of the knee not the front. The problem is I don't know what I did to hurt it! I woke up with it a little sore yesterday morning, but nothing serious, so I went ahead and did my work out, no problems. Until that afternoon, ouch. By evening I could barely walk.
I've been icing it regularly, which helps a lot and I didn't work out today. I had to go to work though and I have a job that I never sit, but I wore my old industrial-strength brace which helped, but it's designed to protect the front of the knee not the back.
So, I'm at home, bored because I'm usually not here till later in the day, (no workout) and fretting about what if I can't exercise for awhile and I start gaining weight?! I've worked so hard and really, really don't want to go backwards! I know I'm just borrowing trouble, but these thoughts are driving me crazy, what if, what if, what if. And, now I'm just being silly, but there's 18" of fresh snow on the mesa and I really wanted to go snowshoeing this weekend!
I've had my rant and I feel better now. And I'm also hopeful that it will be all right (provided I take care of it) and I need to quit with the pity party. emoticon

    Praying that your knee feels better and is healed! Are you using Motrin or anything like that? Have you seen a dr for it yet?

  • WRITEAWAY careful... and (((mend well)))

    Who's your accountability-buddy for not injuring yourself further? Because I'd be all over that (snowshoeing when I have an injury, yup). You take good care :-).

    Please get yourself checked over by a doctor. Maybe some physio will help too emoticon emoticon You could probably strength train your upper body if you really need to fit in a workout. I know what you mean about worrying what will happen if we miss workouts but sometimes it happens. I don't think you are having a pity party. It is frustrating when we try to make physical progress and our bodies rebel. Been there and still doing that.

    Sorry to hear that the knee injury sounds more serious than at first. Are you sure you shouldn't have this checked out by the doc. You don't want to be injurying those knees more seriously than neccessary. We need them.

    Like Nilla I thought about the SP chair exercises. I know my DS checked them out since she broke her leg.

    If it's not better in a day or two, I'd say you better go see the Doc. In the meantime, there are some chair workouts on SP in the fitness video section. I hurt my ankle awhile back & had to resort to those & they will make you sweat! Hang in there!! emoticon emoticon
