It's my 782 day of logging in to Spark people and it's a roller coaster but I am hanging in and WILL NOT stop till I am at my goals.

"It seems like you've been dealing with some exercise obstacles lately. But don't beat yourself up! No matter how hopeless it seems, there are ways to get back on track. Pull yourself back up with and decide to make today different."

That was today's Spark Premium Day message. I am totally frustrated with the knee. In 33 weeks I am scheduled to go to Bali and work on reef restoration projects. I am anxious to get on with fixing this. Appointment with ortho doc March 3. In the meantime I hobble and hurt.
I am also angry with my son who thinks he is here to help me but doesn't lift a finger. I texted him to take the garbage out but he didn't. I hobbled out and did one barrel but the recycling truck already went through before I realized it wasn't out

There's my rant.

Today I have to get my behind out to take my taxes to the accountant. I will run a few errands while out. It's cold but gotta do what I gotta do I must still be acclimated to those gorgeous Hawaiian temps, yesterday I turned the thermostat up to 73 for a bit. I was reading my studies and could not get warm.

I am going to try to do a little chair exercise and maybe get a little walking if the knee will cooperate long enough. I do feel like if I could just strengthen the thigh muscles it would stabilize it a bit.

I love this pretty encouragement. Today I chose to feed my mind all the good things it needs.

    I need to do the same with the thigh muscles for my knee. It's been worse lately and I've let the PT exercises slide a bit.

    I'm sorry you're having a difficult time with your knee and not getting the support that you need. If your son won't assist, make sure you are putting yourself first. Do not try and take on tasks you should best avoid.

    The Spark quote for today is spot on concerning "beating yourself up". Be patient and kind to yourself.
