This was the image at the end of my coaching session today. I know that lately I have fallen into some time traps. When I injured my knee I found myself sitting around either elevating, icing or both frequently. But, even before all of that, I would sit and watch shows with my husband in the evening, barely moving. By that time of day I often am in pain.

So, I need to make better use of my time and maybe take something for pain with my dinner so I can keep moving throughout the evening. I will start slow so as not to make my knee worse again. Using a cane has really helped a lot. My back and hip have returned to their normal level of pain and I think my knee is healing faster as well. I should have done this years ago. I can even walk up stairs alternating my feet. Still can't go down more than one step at a time but I'm improving.

    Best of luck to you. I think that battling pain is one of the most difficult things you can do. Be as careful as you can and work it slowly. emoticon emoticon

    Rehabilitation is challenging. Be careful in pushing yourself enough but not too hard.
