Desperate to get moving again
Thursday, June 03, 2010
I've managed to drive a little way, more than 10 mins or so and my knee starts hurting like crazy, throbbing and feeling really tender, but it does give me a bit more independence.
I'm dying to get moving again. I may well go to the gym later today and sign up. Get them to arrange a programme for me to follow despite my knee. That's providing the people picking up my parcel arrive in time. If not, I'll do it tomorrow. I had thought about swimming but I'm not a very good swimmer and worried that I may not be able to get out of the pool without help. Last thing I want is to end up looking and feeling like a beached whale in the pool.
I've got an appt with the physio on Tuesday so hopefully she'll give me some more good advice.
My cat has come out in sympathy - he's been fighting and has been bitten down to the bone, this have given him an abscess and he's hopping around on 3 legs the poor thing. The vet's bills hurt almost as much as my knee lol
Still stuck at just over 14st - I must be thankful that I've not sat here and put on huge amounts of weight, I am going to have another push and try and get under 14st for my birthday in 2 weeks. It will be good for my knee too.
I'm also going to make more of an effort to check out other people's blogs and posts. I've been very self centred recently. Time to ease myself back into the world.
