It won't win!

Tuesday, October 02, 2012

So, giggling with my daughter Saturday ended in a frustrating way as I sprained my knee. We had a blast dancing in the living room just before that though, so I refuse to regret it.

I do regret not being able to do our trip to see fall colors and go for a hike Sunday. And I do regret losing momentum on my exercise.

But Gosh darn it, I am not going to quit! I can still exercise my upper body, even while the knee isn't ready to walk more than about 10 steps. And it will get better and I can take it really slow when it does and remember to s-t-r-e-t-c-h lots this time. And I can be creative with chair and couch and bed exercises!

I can still do this - it is a bump in the road (a rather big bump even, especially if I tore some of the ligaments like the doc thinks I did) but the road still points forward as long as I don't turn around. So my knee won't win. My head and my heart are stronger than it is!

    Hold tight it will get better. It takes a lot of stretching and icing. I know from experience. You can do it.

    Good plan! Keep working the parts of your body that are able to do the work! Rest that knee and get it better. Don't you hate when the body falls apart on you? I'm dealing with back and knee issues at the moment. I'll have a day where I'm making progress and then a day like today where I'm in pain again! So frustrating but we have to keep doing our best!

    So sorry to hear about your speed bump in the road, but you've got such a great attitude about continuing your exercising with the chair, bed and couch exercises. emoticon

    Love your positive, upbeat attitude. Glad you found some exercises you can do.

    Boy, that's frustrating! But with your plan, you will continue doing what you can. I think somewhere on this sight there are seated exercise examples--as you may well know. Keep sparkin' girl.
