Discouragement

Today I planned to walk my doggie again since it was so nice to move my body that way yesterday, but I got caught up on the phone with my DB (Dear Boyfriend) who is out of town and got a scary call about one of his daughters (she had an ectopic pregnancy that they just found last night and had to rush her to the hospital...all seems well now). So I headed out to look at new houses (DB and I are thinking about buying a place together) with my agent and figured I'd get some exercise that way. Which I did until the house that was my favorite pre-shopping trip tried to kill me!! I slipped on some polished stone steps, tore up my hand and arm and, WORST of all, screwed up my knee which was finally starting to heal from surgery in late September!! I was luckily wearing my brace or who knows how much worse it would have been. As it is, I am hugely set back...can't walk anywhere near normally, knee is hugely swollen again and it HURTS. I am not sure whether to head to the doctor or not first thing tomorrow...am leaning toward hitting physical therapy and seeing what they say first. BUT, this means MORE time before I can really exercise again. I am extremely sad about this. Very hard to lose weight when you can't do more than hobble. :-( Oh well...hoping for better day tomorrow...

I'm so sorry to hear that you fell and on your knee.

Maybe it's just a small tiny setback. Can you do anything in the water with it? Get well!

Hi Lori and thanks for the comment! A pool would be great, but I don't have one (or access to one). Luckily I do have a hot tub and my doctor says to alternately soak in that and ice...AND do a lot of exercises in physical therapy! Good news! :-)
