(Another) New Start
Wednesday, November 20, 2013
I have had a major setback in the last few of months. Between the stress of this new job and the changes being made within the company I am about to explode. I usually counteract stress with exercise, but not lately. I have to walk so much on my new job (plus climbing steps and ladders) that I have hurt my left knee and cannot get it to feeling better no matter how much Advil, ice, heat, or rest will make it feel better. I need to lose weight to make my knee feel better, but I need to exercise to lose the weight and my knee will not let me do much.
Today I decided I have had enough! I am tired of hobbling around and tired of sitting on my butt! I found some stretching exercises especially to strengthen knees. I can still ride my bike without pain, but the weather has turn rather cold. I wish there was a pool nearby where I could exercise.
Tomorrow I will start with the stretches and see how my knee reacts. If isn't too cold, I will take a short bike ride to the park. I am also getting an appointment with an orthopedic doctor to make sure there is nothing else going on.
I will let you know how it all works out.
