The frustration station

Week two of get thee less fattimus:
Total lbs lost: 5
Days exercised: 1 :(

This knee injury has been major lamesauce.  My knee is getting worse everyday, the pain has reduced me to tears the last three days.  I did go have it checked out on Tuesday and x-rays were taken as it was pretty swollen and I am still waiting to hear back from the dr's office.  I am pretty sure it's bad news bears though. The way it feels, this will not be a simple case of R.I.C.E!! (rest, ice, compression, elevation) And seriously nothing has made me more depressed these last two weeks than not being able to move more! For the first time in a looooooong time I have been so motivated to work out only to be unable.  I have to say that thankfully, eating much better has been paying off for me or I would be doubly pissed off! It still hasn't been an easy road in the dieting half though, there were a couple of days that I was really freaking hungry! I just had to choose very wisely and pray, pray, pray for the strength to get through this!! And I am kicking ass!

Now the plan of attack going into week 3, lots of ab and arm strength training.  I will also start doing some resistance band training as well, going back to my dancer days and all the pi-yo stuff used to do, to get the muscles shredding! But I am pretty sure cardio is out. :(..... If only I had a pool!!!! Or access to one in the near vicinity! Which I do not. Booooooooo!

This week I could sure use some positive thoughts, well wishes and prayers for the knee to magically heal itself. (And also for me to not need the "S" word)
