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!
