Somethings gotta give

This is me on pizza!

This is me on excercise!
Any questions?

Okay, so I'm back from my cruise. Well I've been back since Monday and now it's Thursday. It took me a couple days to recover. Most of the recovery process included me lounging around my apt. eating copious amounts of Chinese food and pizza. Well this morning I stepped on the scale. All I can say is "S%*#! and F*#$!". My whole summer plan has been to come back from my cruise and then workout every morning. Well the only workouts I have been doing since my cruise are the ones at physical therapy which are actually something. Let's be honest though I'm not making myself do those I HAVE to do them. It stands to reason that I don't actually HAVE to do the physical therapy ones but if I ever want my knee to be normal again and not dislocate then I HAVE to. I need to somehow trick my brain into thinking the same thing about regular working out. I mean if I want to live a long time and not be all miserable and riddled with health issues then I really do HAVE to workout. However, it's a little harder to get motivated when there's not anything actually reminding me of this like a swollen knee. That's the other issue. I'm not sure exactly what I can do yet other than walk and ride the bike. Yes, I know I can do those things but I bore very easily. The gym does have Zumba which I've heard alot of great things about however, I'm not sure if I'm supposed to do that yet. Guess I'll have to ask the doc this afternoon when I go. Finally, there is water aerobics. My biggest hurdle here, other than wearing a bathing suit in public is I don't want to excercise with a bunch of old ladies, cause by golly I'm not old yet. I'll probably have to get over this one because in reality this would be the best excercise for my knee.

  1. Well, you can do the recumbent bike and I bet even the elliptical? I did them both when my pelvic bones were still separating/popping and it wasn't too bad.

    And, if you can't exercise yet, you can definitely still control your diet. In fact, you should focus on it even more since you can't go out and burn as many calories by exercising.

    I know, it stings to take weight loss tips from someone who's first 26 years of life were spent being a sloth. So, if that doesn't make you mad enough to get up and "I'll show her" then nothing will. LOL
