Back in the groove

  • Feb 5th, 2019 at 2:46PM

I’ve had a few days where I have slipped on my motivation to weigh and measure everything. This definitely resulted in me not eating enough veggies and then feeling hungry and looking for more. I’m missing at least one fruit snack per day...usually either the afternoon or evening. I’m in full recognition that I need to get back on the strict wagon if I want to see the results I signed up for.

On the exercise front, I’ve tweaked my knee. It feels tight, is making new clicking noises, I can’t achieve full flexion. But...weight bearing is ok and I seem to be able to manage skipping, creeps, and lunges fine as well. For now, I’m keeping on as usual with some ice and ibuprofen thrown in for good measure.

Just sharing what I learnt, do try if it works.
When my knee starts to hurt, I try opening up my quads, hamstrings n flutes. Holding stretches for 20/30 seconds....its instantly helps and opens up the knots that cause my knee to tighten up. Do try if u can manage.i did it just 2days back n am back to normal

      Jennifer, if your knee is a bit iffy, can you try some alt cardio? The rope is a lot of repetitive motion so I am worried it can get worse. Stretching will surely help, it is ok to rest, too. The diet! The diet! You are right, you won't get the results unless you nail your grams. Back to it, please!

        The knee is a tricky joint and I would prefer it if you made a visit to your doctor.

          Yes...I’m having an evaluation. It’s more than just a tweak. Walking is ok so I’m sticking w that for now for cardio. Laying off the tennis & skipping. 1 hour swimming & 1.5 hours of Dragon boating both 2x/ week so I feel like I’m getting a decent amount of cardio as a base too.

            Bummer about the knee. Kim sent me a injury recovery sheet that recommended heat rather than ice once you're in recovery mode. I found it really helped. Hang in there! You looked good on the boat today!
