Hanging in there

Wednesday, March 06, 2013

My knee is still too swollen and mobility still too limited to tell if I need surgery or not. I'm a little frustrated as I'd like to know what I'm facing, but still feeling lucky that things were not worse.

I am still focusing on core and upper body strength and integrating some physical therapy moves to improve the mobility in my knee. Being smart and letting stability and lack of pain be my guide. If I start to feel unstable, or I feel any pain, I stop.

I also successful transitions to about 300 fewer calories a day, and right now my weight is still in my goal range (even a little lower, but within the "this could be water weight" category).

So, I'm hanging in there and proud of myself for making the successful - albeit reluctant - transition to being less active.

    Endorphins are incredible things. When I need to take a rest day I can feel the lack of exercise (aka endorphins) and will even get grumpy.

    It sounds like you're doing a good job though and keeping active in other ways. Hopefully the swelling will go down and you'll get some good news, or at least not the worst possible news. *Fingers crossed*
