Bowling After Knee Surgery

Wednesday, April 23, 2014

Wow I bowled 4 games last night with some friends and I'm feeling it today! I had ACL reconstruction 8 years ago; the ACL is the ligament that keeps your knee from bending sideways. :/ Anyway I got a lot of water as a result of that, so that part is good.

My food is doing pretty good, and I'm on day 3 of logging on #MyFitnessPal, the longest streak I've had in months! have to (re)start somewhere. I had a brownie last night while bowling, but otherwise I ate pretty clean all day Monday and yesterday.

This morning was so cold again, I didn't make it to the gym to swim; and honestly, my knees are feeling very old anyway so I just slept an extra half hour instead. I might go for a bike ride after school today, since I'm finished teaching and I can leave during planning time at 1pm. :)

My 7th graders are starting a new unit this week on nutrition and the digestive system, and today my CT is doing a lesson plan on fast food and reading labels. I am SO JEALOUS!!! I wish I was still teaching this week!!! I am all over this stuff!!! And I love seeing the looks on these kids' faces when they find out what's really in some of the stuff they eat at McD's. ;)

    Sounds like you are doing nicely. Be careful with your knee. You don't want to hurt it again. Wish you was teaching the class too. You could have been a great help to the kids. God Blessings Always. Hugs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Have a Great Day. Take Care.

    And the great thing about teaching about McD's food is that you don't even have to exaggerate for the horror to be obvious.
