I spent most of the week limping (literally) from one thing to another. When I could, I would sit with my leg elevated, sometimes I could even ice it. Of course, I was working most of the week and that may have had something to do with exacerbating an already painful and swollen situation.
I went to an Aqua Fit class on Saturday because they say that it’s easy on the joints and knees and such. When I woke up Sunday in more pain, I was so discouraged. I can do upper body strength stuff but only sitting and I can’t really get down on the floor for core/abs. I’m limited but not stoppable. I am doing what I can, when the pain is not too much for me. Otherwise, since Friday, I’ve tried to stay off my leg as much as possible.
I lost 4.5 lbs (2 kg) this week. Still over my goal for the year. A little disappointing. It doesn’t help that I am physically unable to do all that I want to do to lose the weight I have regained. At least I am losing the weight but I would like to catch up with my goal and even get ahead of my goal, which is where I was before I left to see my mother. So my short-term goal is to get back on track.
The workout goals for the week:
Use free weights for upper body
Take care of my knee
